How to Create and Maintain a Positive Attitude

LinkedIn is often thought of as a gold-mine for making contacts in the world of business. We found it’s also great for mining the perspective and wisdom of executives. Recently, they were asked for their best attitude and motivational quotes. We chose to share these with you and hope your share them with your employees.

Perseverance and Goals:

  • Sagar M MBA: Nothing is Impossible in this world , even the word Impossible Says “I’M POSSIBLE”
  • David Hance: There is nothing impossible to him who will try. – Alexander the Great
  • Tess Williams: Things are only impossible until they’re not. Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. ~Lewis Carroll

Attitude:

  • Sheila Segnalini: “How you spend your day is how you spend your life.”
  • Scott Winterton: “Suck it up and don’t even THINK of quitting!”
  • Louise Findlay-Wilson: Accept that some days you’re the pigeon… others you’re the statue (may not be motivational but it gets me through bad days with a wry smile on my face)
  • Proactive people can carry their own weather with them. Whether it rains or shines makes no difference to them. They are value driven; and if their value is to produce good quality work, it isn’t a function of whether the weather is conducive to it or not.  Stephen Covey

Change:

  • Tammy Dias (LION): It is difficult to steer a parked car, so get moving. –Henrietta Mears
  • John A. Newby : If you don’t like change, you will enjoy irrelevance even less. Gen. Eric Shinseki

Success:

    • Work only half a day; it makes no difference which half – it can be either the first 12 hours or the last 12 hours.
    • Mental attitude plays a far more important role in a person’s success or failure than mental capacity.
    • Remember that we all climb the ladder of success one step at a time.
    • There are two ways to get to the top of an oak tree. One way is to sit on an acorn and wait; the other way is to climb it.
