"The best resource to start may day since Dilbert!" ~ Jon Boswell (former cubical slave!)
|Your Midas Motivational Moment...|
This TQ Factor of your performance (Attitude 3a) is important because it drives a feeling of UNBEATABLE EMPOWERMENT and MOTIVATION deep within you.
Who's Responsible Here?
Once you accept that you're the cause of all the things that go right -- or wrong -- you gain power over everything you do.
Dedicate this week to you. Be the cause of who you are, what you do, and what you achieve.
"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them."
~ George Bernard Shaw

So, Are You Committed to Maximum Success?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3A? (Take Full Responsibility for How Your Day Works Out.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (3A rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who takes responsibility for how things turn out. You take charge of your day, and waste little time complaining to others when things don't go as planned. You power through the best and worst of circumstances. You take full responsibility for where you are at each moment, and for what you're going to do next. Rarely do you stay stuck in a bad situation. Instead, you stay focused on your goals, and do whatever you can to make them real. Each day, you become victorious over circumstances.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who surrenders easily to your current circumstances. You are willing to push forward when things go well, but then pull back during difficult times. By focusing on a negative situation, or the power others have over you, you forfeit your power to initiate an improvement to the status quo. Rather than pursue new options, you generally stop to criticize and complain. You seek out people who will agree that it's something or someone else's fault -- and there's nothing that can be done about it. Each day, you become the victim.
What happens when you do Factor 3A more frequently?
You have more power. If there is something you want, you don't wait for fate. You act to make it happen.
You accumulate performance positives like "Responsible, Empowered and Accountable" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do Factor 3A?
You have less power. You relinquish all power to make a difference when you give up personal responsibility.
Negatives like "Irresponsible, Powerless and Unaccountable" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
