How to Stay Positive in Negative Times
FROM THE DESK OF GRANT CARDONE: How do you stay positive in negative times? When the world around you is going negative, what can you do to rise above and not get sucked in? Turn on the media and all you hear about are the latest shootings. There’s too much noise out there that will bring you down, get you angry, and distract you from your goals.
I want to show you how to stay positive today by changing your attitude with your thoughts and your words. What you think and what you say to yourself and to others amounts to your attitude.
Highly successful people have positive attitudes
So, how do you change your attitude? I have days that are worse than others. Like you, I also have days that I’m at work and I don’t want to be at work. How do you change your attitude? Produce something.
Hear me out on this…
Any level of production will change someone’s attitude. If you don’t like the world around you CREATE something POSITIVE to make it the world you want to live in.
The idea of having goals and dreams, exercising, eating right, and the idea of knowing where you are going will change your attitude. But what will change your attitude forever is what you think.
Why is that?
What you think and what you do shifts your attitude.
Go make a sale, complete a task, make a phone call, go handle something you’ve been putting off, produce almost anything at any level and you’ll feel better.
This is because production is the basis for morale.
This is the formula for a great attitude:Your Positive Thoughts + Positive Language + Positive Action
The more positive thought, the more positive language, the more positive actions—the more positive the attitude.
I’m always looking to avoid any low esteem events. Anything you don’t feel good about don’t do…
