It’s All About Attitude

It is hard to believe that the final quarter of 2010 is already here. How are you doing with the goals you set for this year? If you are on track… that’s great. If you aren’t, you can have a Fantastic Finish and start 2011 with momentum! The key is to quit worrying about what went wrongand focus on what to do next. The game of success is mostly mental so read article below, watch the short video and TAKE MASSIVE ACTION. Remember… “It’s what you do every day that makes you who you’ll be some day”.

Having a bad day? Your attitude can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It can take you to levels you never thought possible, or it can be the single most limiting element in your life. Your attitude — good or bad — is contagious. It spreads to your coworkers, your family, and especially your clients, affecting everything you do. Having a bad attitude will cost you sales, business, friends, time, and energy. You will never make it to the top of your game if you consistently have “stinkin’ thinkin’.” Of course, everyone has bad days and gets down once in a while. Still, learn to control your attitude and your consistent thoughts and beliefs will always prevail. When you have a good attitude, good things happen. The adage that success is 90 percent attitude and 10 percent aptitude is true. I’ve always noticed that the salespeople with the best attitudes sell more. All superstars have a super attitude. They absolutely refuse to major in the minors or let the small stuff get them down. Now go change your day!

Mental Dress Rehearsal

To perform at the highest level we must practice mentally as well as physically. The human mind cannot distinguish reality from what we repeatedly imagine. The more vivid we are with our imagination, the more likely we are to see it materialize. The reason great performers look so natural is because they have been there many times in their mind. Astronauts use flight simulators and other mechanisms to guide their imagery. Olympic athletes exercise a mental visual training regiment just as they do intense physical training. When I have an important meeting, function, or event I make it a practice repeatedly visualize the perfect performance. When training salespeople, I teach them to take 5 or 10 minutes before each sales call to visualize their desired end result. The reality is… with no training there will be no gaining. When training yourself you must go through the moves mentally, over and over again, until they become second nature. Your mind stores, as a reality, everything you repeatedly think about. The mind will replay success or failure; so the performance you see in your mind will make a difference in how you perform physically. When you go there in your mind it becomes automatic such as brushing your teeth or tying your shoes. If you can go there in your mind, you can then take your body there. However, if you go there in body but haven’t been there in your mind, then chances are you will not perform at your highest level. So imagine yourself performing at the highest level. Play everything out in your head first. When you play it out in your mind you won’t fail. When you practice a mental rehearsal ahead of time, you won’t agonize when your performance is on the line. Then it will seem effortless and natural. Print this Article: Mental Dress Rehearsal
