In any business or industry winners win and then there is just everyone else. What sets those people apart from each other? What are some of the keys that define winners? What's the difference between a 10 car a month guy and a 20 car a month guy? The difference between a .250 batting average and a .350 batting average in the big leagues? The difference between 10-0 and 0-10?..................SIMPLE..............ATTITUDE!
It was once said that the road to success and the road to failure aren't much different. Life truly rewards those who react more positively to any circumstances they are given. In this fast-paced, social media driven world that we live in, most of the "problems" that people have are self-inflicted. When given the option, give me the manager, salesperson, human being, etc., that constantly maintains a Positive Mental Attitude no matter what life throws at them. Remember, if it was easy then everyone would be doing it, my Dad taught me this at a young age, and it remains a lesson that I'll never forget. There were 3 phrases that my Dad would constantly bring up when I was growing up: "Knowledge is Power", "PMA" (Positive Mental Attitude), and "Bulldog It!" As my sister and I got older no matter what situation life threw at us, our Dad would inevitably reply to the situation facing us with one of those 3 phrases. Although we didn't understand it totally when we were just starting school we soon realized, that as we got older life got tougher and that mindset and our Dad's "silly phrases" that he would post all over the house for us would pay dividends.
So now I challenge you in your day to day life to keep a PMA and see the results for yourself. No matter your current skill level or position in a given industry, we are, as human beings, always a "work in-progress". I encourage you all to always do your very best everyday, always be thirsty for knowledge, for knowledge is power, and always keep a Positive Mental Attitude!
