Be Positive and Lead

“Like success, failure is many things to many people. With Positive Mental Attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order and prepare to try again.” –W. Clement Stone

When you develop a Positive Mental Attitude, you distinguish yourself from the crowd. You become a leader because positive thinking leads to positive action, while negative thinking leads to apathy and inaction. When you take the initiative in any situation, others will follow simply because they like to associate with people who are positive and know where they are going. In order to lead, however, you must first be willing to discipline yourself. The first rule of leadership is never to ask others to do what you are unwilling to do yourself. You can lead only by example. John Maxwell says, “Leadership is influence, nothing more and nothing less.” A good way to find out if you are a leader is to look back. If no one is following, then who are you leading. Being a leader requires you to work harder, longer, and sacrifice more than the others. This shows others that you are the creator and master of your own future and people will follow.

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” –W. Clement Stone

Be positive and passionate. Have an awesome day.
