  • 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.

    I manage my attitude through words. I believe that words create. God created the world by speaking it into being and I am created in His image...so I need to be intentional with words. Whether they are on the inside or come out my mouth they will create something. To that end, I create the habit of speaking, and thinking in terms of what I want, not what I don't.

    Awesome insight Lynn. Thanks for checking in.

    Number 10 stood out to me ... FIX HOW YOU RESPOND TO FAILURE. I used to (and still do sometimes) view a patient’s decision to drop off care as MY failure. I had someone stop care last night and for part of the drive home I felt frustrated with what “I MUST have done wrong”. Did I not press in enough? Not principled enough? etc. I finally caught myself and stopped because that’s an insane way to live. After reading this, I’m going to start VISUALIZING MYSELF RESPONDING in my morning time the way I want to so I can be at peace with the outcome ... and myself. I’m also going to visualize myself getting excited about FAILURE!!! YEAH!!

    Breaking old survival responses. Love it.

    I’ve maintained a positive attitude this month by staying focused on God’s love for us and, like you said, trusting He is here for us. Morning time, devotionals, praying and being grateful throughout the day.

    Awesome comment Shannon. Having things in your regular routine like you mentioned keeps you away from old patterns.

    My strategy lately has been to focus on being EXCITED! During my morning time I've been focusing on my Vision Board, and reflecting on how excited I am that my dreams are coming to fruition. I've been journaling about why each of my goals being accomplished is so exciting for each area of my life. I've been focusing on being excited to see the miracles show up in how my patients are responding to care. I'm focusing on Vision Time with the intent of moving towards my goals in the simplest, straightest action path possible.

    I've been pleasantly surprised to see how many of the things that I was worrying about before now seem either silly or unimportant. It's so far been much easier to stay excited than to keep worrying. Thanks coach!

    Consistent excitement is the key. Cannot wait to see your progress.
