In today’s blog post, I am going to be sharing some lessons on attitude from a mentor of mine, John C Maxwell.
Whether you like it or not, attitude is very important.
“Your attitude determines your altitude” – Zig Ziglar.
Your attitude is basically about how you choose to react to situations and how you choose to see things, so if your attitude sucks it stands to reason you wont go so far in life or business.

Notes on Attitude From Make Today Count By John Maxwell
So I have been reading this small but powerful book “Make today count” by John Maxwell, and if you haven’t read it, you should. John basically talks about different areas we can work on TODAY hence the title, and one of the things he talks about is Attitude.
Here are my takeaways on attitude:
Take Responsibility For Your Attitude
Your attitude is up to you. You choose how you see things and how you react to things that happen to you. In the context of Network Marketing, if you train someone and they decide to leave your business, you can decide to let it go and move forward or to be angry and bitter about it. Your attitude is not set, and you can always change it.
Decide To Change Your Bad Attitude Areas
We all have bad attitude areas and areas in our lives where we need to change. Maybe we aren’t patient enough, etc. If we want to become better, then we need to change those areas.
Think, Walk And Talk Like The Person You Want To Become
A lot of people think they cannot change, but for me that’s BS. You can always get better, but it all starts with changing how you see yourself. Believe you can improve and you can become who you want to be, maybe a top earner or a leader. If you change your thinking then everything else follows.
Remove Negative Words From Your Vocabulary
This was one of the biggest takeaways for me. Remove words like “I can’t”, “I don’t think”, “It’s impossible”, “I’m afraid”, “I don’t believe” and replace them with “I can”, “I know”, “It’s possible”, “I’m confident and “I believe”. Change your words and your life will change.
