It's All About ATTITUDE!!

"in the end it is all about attitude!" - Bob Allwright

The word "Attitude" gets used a lot these days. You see it all the time; on television, on t-shirts, all over You-Tube. So let's take a deeper look into the question, "What is Attitude?"

Some dictionary definitions are:

"A complex mental state involving beliefs, feelings, values and dispositions; to act in certain ways."

"Behaving or reacting in a characteristic way."

You may be reading this and thinking 'HUH!', but basically your attitude is the way you think, act and feel. And because your actions are controlled by your brain, along with your thoughts, feelings and beliefs; your attitude is just a choice.

Take a look at all of the top athletes in every sport. The ones that know that they can and will succeed. The ones that have an unshakable belief that they will WIN! Call it confidence, call it brashness, arrogance or certainty, but the athletes with the winning edge all have it.

When you take on a task with unstoppable confidence, unshakable belief in yourself and unflinching determination to succeed, that is exactly what you do. You succeed. And comparatively, when you approach things filled with doubt, misgiving and ambiguity, that is what you get - doubt, misgiving and ambiguity, but NOT success.

So how does one go about creating this winning attitude? You need to learn what success looks like and copy it. Get to know everything you can about your endeavours. Being aware of all the ins and outs of your game will send your game sky high.

You will also need to set some goals. Goals that excite you and set you on fire will keep you going when things get challenging. And expect things to get challenging at some stage because this is the way you grow and develop the strength and skills needed for success. So embrace these challenges and discomfort as a way to progressing towards your goals.

And finally you need to learn to visualise. See your success in your minds eye. See it, hear it, smell it, touch it and taste it. In other words, enlist all your senses in your imagination as you visualise. The more vividly you imagine your success, the more real it becomes. The more real it appears in your mind, the closer you are to making your success a reality. So dream. Visualise. Imagine your success down to the most intricate detail. Because once you get an image of what you want in your mind you can achieve it.

Your attitude and your beliefs direct your life and your future. So get your attitude on track and you will come out a winner. And remember it's all about your attitude.
