The next three strategies fit together nicely as they address the all too common problem of an inconsistent great attitude. Negative emotions and worry can easily hijack our attitude which leads to poor performance in every area of our lives.
10. Fix how you respond to failure
Determine during your morning time what you would like your best outcomes to look like
. We know that our best laid plans are going to be disrupted during the day. They almost always are. Something will always go wrong. Prepare for it and visualize how you are going to respond to this temporary road block.
Failure is temporary and inevitable. Actually, it is desirable as long as we get back up and try again.
11. Attitude is everything.
First, you have to believe this as being absolute truth. You cannot go into any kind of environment involving interaction with other human beings and not have your attitude affect outcomes. Be consistent moment to moment, day to day, week to week. A positive attitude will be much more likely to produce positive results. People want to be around and follow people who are uplifting and optimistic. You cannot go big without keeping it positive.
12. Worry creates failure.
Worry leads to negative emotions like anxiety and fear, which sabotage your ability to perform in every category of your life. Simply understanding this fact will not change anything in your physiology. You also need a strategy to replace worry with something or Someone else. You need faith that God is in control and that He loves you and is working with you for the best possible outcome. In uncertain times, the one thing that you can be certain of is not a thing- but a person. God is limitless and His resources are limitless. He created everything out of nothing. Give Him control and begin your journey of worrying less and trusting more.
Begin every day with your morning time so that you can connect with God who is the source of all your strength.
