A Can-Do Attitude

My Mom was a Rosie The Riveter during World War II in southern California. You know the motto: “We Can Do It!”

How does a “can-do” attitude fit into your work life? Has it been stifled by work cultures that discourage creativity and individual initiative? Has it been encouraged by those who realize the power of empowering workers? A “can-do” attitude serves you well. If you do not have many opportunities to cultivate it – find some.

A can-do attitude is contagious and leads you to opportunities you will never find by standing still.

The Source of Your Positivity

positivealexas_fotospixabayIn my last post I wrote about the source of your negativity and looking below the surface for its roots. The source of your positive thinking, in contrast, is self-generated by you. Staying positive in a chaotic and challenging world takes effort.

You can cultivate a positive attitude by doing and thinking in positive ways. Examples of sources of positive doing and thinking can be: being with people who “lift you up”, listening to music that inspires you, doing things that give you joy, finding positive reasons why you live and work the way you do, staying away from negative influences, developing ways to counteract your own negativity when it arises and committing to maintaining a positive attitude

What are the sources of your positivity?
