And the chorus sings, “Attitude is everything!” It is said so often that it has become a cliché. But is it really? Yes and no. It’s not everything if you aren’t working.
Don’t kid yourself about your attitude. Just being a happy, positive, energetic person isn’t enough. Anyone can be pleasant when they don’t have anything to do or aren’t under any pressure.
A really great attitude has to go beyond that.
It means you’re committed to a goal. It means you are willing to face challenges without hesitation. It means you can be counted on. People who have great attitudes are energized and focused. They work hard and they work long. They have a toughness and consistency about them that gives encouragement to those they work with. It shows up when things are going well and when they are going bad. It goes well beyond just being an easy-going, happy guy.
