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…

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
