Attitude: The Difference Maker II

Think of a friend, colleague, family member, or mentor whom you greatly admire.  Stop.  Don’t keep reading.  Really think of a name, and write it down.

Now write five things you admire most about this person.  We’re betting you’ll gain an interesting and important insight by doing it.  So please stop and write down what you admire.

Why did we ask you to do this? 

Because we’ve found that most of the time, many of the characteristics we admire in others have to do with attitude.  We admire and like to be around people who are positive, tenacious, and expectant.  People with a good attitude lift us up and inspire us.

Your New AttitudeOn the other hand, people with bad attitudes don’t get very far in life.  While it’s possible for people with great talent or drive to achieve with a bad attitude, it doesn’t happen very often, and it takes an incredible amount of effort.  And on those occasions when they do achieve some measure of success – their attitude prevents them (and those around them) from enjoying it!

Compare that with a person who has average talent and drive but chooses a great attitude.  People who choose a healthy attitude often experience increased opportunities, improved relationships, and a larger perspective.  These are the building blocks for success.

That’s why attitude is a difference maker – all things being equal, your attitude is the main thing.

When it comes to leadership, attitude becomes even more important.  You need to see possibilities when others don’t, encourage people when they are feeling defeated, and demonstrate commitment when others want to quit….

A good attitude is an extra plus in life.  It makes our lives better.  And it also makes our leadership better, because leadership has less to do with position than it does disposition.  The attitude or disposition of leaders is important because it influences the thoughts and feelings of the people they lead.

Good leaders understand that a positive attitude creates a positive atmosphere, which encourages positive and productive responses from others.  Our attitude may not be the asset that makes us great leaders, but without a good attitude, we will struggle to reach our full potential.

Do you see the connection between living a life without complaining or grumbling and living as a light in the world?

When we allow ourselves to give into a bad attitude, we dim our light.  When we choose instead to have a healthy attitude, we become beacons among the darkness.  The light we share is generated by the attitude we choose.  When we look at the world with a positive attitude, we can see possibility, potential, and positivity – which helps us grow and shine his light to the rest of the world.

To Being Positive,
Change That Up!

Cash is KingGood morning.
To be honest, I’m getting a little fatigued with all the coronavirus talk.  I heard that cruise ships are offering killer deal with free flights!  Makes me want to have my heart checked and throw caution in the wind and sail the Caribbean or something.

Globally, the coronavirus has killed more than 3,118 people … And the death toll continues to rise.

While this is a terrifying pandemic, what the media fails to tell you is that over 14,000 people have died and over 250,000 people have been hospitalized from the influenza virus this season.

YES — you read that correctly — The flu has taken far more lives globally than the coronavirus!

Yet so many people are fixated on the coronavirus.  But there is ONE thing that BOTH of these viruses have in common…

VITAMIN C

A lack of vitamin C has been long known to increase susceptibility to viruses.  In fact, studies have shown that vitamin C deficiency is related to the increased risk and severity of influenza infections…

But, you must be aware that not all vitamin C is created equal.

Most people buy vitamin C in tablet form and they DO NOT receive the benefits of those vitamins as a majority of the nutrients are not absorbable in the stomach…

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion. By the
