The dictionary defines attitude as a manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, esp. of the mind.
How has your attitude been lately? In a recent manager's meeting at Chinowth & Cohen Realtors, we discussed our impression of the upcoming year and agreed "Attitude is Everything." As managers, we are supposed to guide, motivate, empathize, and problem solve for our Associates. In order to do this effectively, a positive attitude is a must. That's why as a group we agreed to follow these principles throughout the year and cultivate the best attitude we could:
MY Attitude..... is Everything!
My Attitude is super fantastic!
I will not let anyone steal my joy.
I will overcome, overpower, and overturn all obstacles.
I will not let anyone or anything impact my positive attitude.
I will look further than my vision, because I walk by faith, not by sight.
I will dream big dreams.
I will move with a sense of urgency and stay committed to my goals.
I will check and re-check, balance and counter balance, measure and be measured to the highest standard of excellence.
I will not give up, give in, or give place to the fear of defeat.
I will never forget who I am, why I am here, and where I am going.
I realize this day, this moment, I control my destiny.
I choose to have a positive attitude.
I will remember, "My attitude....is Everything!"
