Selecting Leaders: Positive Attitude

#6 Positive Attitude

I don’t know if you’ve ever been around a teammate with a bad attitude but it’s not cool. It’s draining. Demotivating. Bye bye team moral.

People with a positive attitude make a team irresistible. When choosing my leaders I always look for people who are a positive and life-giving. People who encourage and look at the opportunities.

Debbie Downers don’t make great leaders.

Questions to ask:

  • What was your first impression of them?
  • What do they talk about?
  • How is their attitude when things don’t go their way?

    Develop a positive attitude. Stop thinking of yourself as stupid or good for nothing. The more you have a negative self esteem the worse are your chanses to be effected by stress related problems. Think of yourself as somebody who is capable and can do what he wants to. Think of yourself as a person who can manage his finances well, get over health problems through mind power, systematically manage time when you want to, solve family problems by talking them out, solve work problems by being genuine and passionate at work, solve house hold problems by taking them as they come and manage social life by not giving it unnecessary importance. Try to convert problems into challenges. Its no use looking at problems as problems. Everyone has to face them. Those who convert them into challenges are the ones who come out with flying colours. Upon being asked on how he felt on “failing” 9999 times in his attempt to perfect an electric bulb, Thomas Edison replied that he had “not failed” but learnt 9999 ways of how not to make an electric bulb – a positive attitude that conclusively led to one of most useful scientific creations ever. Expect frustrations and failures at times, that’s why they call it “work”.
