Your Attitude Is Showing

I feel we all need a reminder of the importance of attitude in our lives from time to time.

This is relevant the sales profession – which requires an upbeat, winning attitude no matter what – especially when one negative attitude with a customer can squelch a deal.

Other than what you say, your attitude (mental, physical or spiritual) is one of the most visible things that you present to others at every interface. You project an attitude of positiveness or the negativity in everything you say and how you say it – that’s what you leave behind in every interaction you have with others.

I covered the subject in more depth in an article I wrote called, “Invisible Footprints. But for now, enjoy the following quote on the subject, by Charles Swindoll.

“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.

Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.”

Your attitude is showing for better or worse, all the time.

Make sure it’s the message you want to convey and working for you not against you.
