Attitude is a key differentiator. People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude. This is very true. When you enter a room and the people you’ve met welcome you with open arms, you certainly can feel the warm welcome and sense of acceptance. Attitude is the same. People want to work with people with a good attitude more than they want to work with those who have a bad attitude.
While having a good attitude helps, it is not the end all be all. What does this mean? A person can have a good attitude, but if they are not equipped, educated and capable of doing the job, the attitude can only help so much. At some point they need to deliver.
While attitude is important, we need to make sure we have a plan to help our people develop, because attitude can only go so far. While attitude is a key differentiator, we have the responsibility to make sure people who have potential and the propensity to learn new things are given the support that can help them help the organization achieve its goal.
Summing-up: Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. Attitude is key to people’s success, but we must also value people who are committed to continuous learning and making it happen.
