"Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude." ~ Timothy Bentley

Are You Focusing On The Rose Or The Thorns?

Expecting positive results and focusing on the rewards justifies your doing whatever's necessary to accomplish what you want.

This factor is the core building block of a positive attitude. You cannot have a positive attitude in general, and a negative expectation for the individual things you do. It's all or nothing. A positive attitude depends on having an optimistic expectation for every task, every role, every meeting, every errand -- every day. No one has a positive attitude all the time. However, once you notice yours beginning to slip away, you can stop the negative spiral and create a positive expectation for the very next thing you do.

Practice looking at everything with a positive expectancy today, and purposely predict success for all your tasks.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Maintain a Positive Expectation for Every Action You Take.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. How are you expecting your next task to turn out?
  3. Do you predict success for every new task you undertake -- even before you begin it?
  5. What do you think will present the biggest challenge to your positive expectancy today? How will you overcome it?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3D? (Maintain a Positive Expectation for Every Action You Take.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (3D rated 8 or better) suggests your first response is to expect success rather than predict failure. You begin everything you do with the belief that you will complete it successfully -- somehow, some way. Eagerly anticipating success, you are motivated to do your very best at every task you attempt. You are more productive than others because you waste little time worrying about how each task will turn out. When you find yourself being a little too negative, you correct your outlook with a new, more positive perspective for the very next action you take.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests your first response to a problem is to hesitate because you anticipate trouble ahead. You tend to get less done because your actions are restricted by the "inevitability" of failure. This causes you to stop and worry, rather than focus on the desired results. Your to-do list is often sabotaged when you get to a difficult task, because you tend to switch to less difficult or less productive tasks instead.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 3D more frequently?

You have more power. Your day is a continuous series of "Yes-I-Can's."

You accumulate performance positives like "Positive, Proactive and Confident" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3D?

You have less power. Fear rules when the first instinctive reaction is knowing you'll fail.

Negatives like "Negative, Hesitant and Doubtful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
