We all had bad days. This day could be yours. What makes this day bad for you? Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Is it circumstances? Or is it something else? Fortunately, regardless of what happens to you today, you can still make the best of it. How? It is through your attitude.
Let us tell you a story. Way back years ago, John was working for a window company making leads to order door. He would knock on the door, greet individual to answer, and give them his talk and ask for appointment within for a window adviser to meet them about the efficiency of their windows.
On that particular day, John was knocking on the doors, doing everything he was supposed to do and he is getting nowhere. Doors slammed in his face and he was getting yelled yet he was simply doing his job. He got to the point of calling his supervisor and tell him what was happening and he was told to take time to recuperate and get his head back in the game.
His attitude at that time was bad and he was having a bit of self-pity. So he took some time and called his girlfriend and she helped him orient his attitude. In this case, John needed someone to talk to who was not in the same situation as his and has a different focus than him so that he could refocus what was right in that moment.
After speaking with his girlfriend, he was able to refocus and do the rest of the day with a positive attitude and produce the results that he desired for that day.
Therefore, as you are going through your day, what are the challenges you are facing? Most importantly, how is your attitude affecting your views of these challenges?
Do you have a bad attitude that is making you view things from a negative perspective so that nothing gets done right? Are you able to change to a positive attitude and view these challenges that you can solve?
If you are in a challenging situation, you should do your best to deal with the circumstance with a positive approach knowing that you have the power to solve whatever you are facing. The solution may not lie in you, but it may lie from someone else. It is up to you to collaborate with your team so solve the problem.
You should be encouraged to view circumstances as challenges that you are capable to solve. You may not have the solution in your mind, but there are people that you can ask for help to correct the solution.
