Why your attitude is important to your success

Attitude is everything! If you can’t manage your attitude you are never going to manage your success its as simple as that!

According to Richard M Perloff, author of The Dynamics of Persuasion: Communication and Attitudes in the Twenty-First Century – Attitude is a mental and emotional entity that characterizes a person, which in turn influences the individual’s thought and action.

Oxford dictionary defines attitude as – “A settled way of thinking or feeling about something.”

A leader needs to have a positive attitude to be able to lead and to have the confidence that he can lead people to success. His attitude should be such that he is helpful, trusting and caring.

A positive attitude helps us rise to the occasion when the future defining moment arrives. It spells optimism and urges us to take risks with confidence.

Ben Franklin, one of the founding fathers of USA said “The handshake of the host affects the taste of the roast.”  This means that the attitude of the host affects the atmosphere.
