Easter Attitudes


Easter is here, and we all remember the ultimate sacrifice that was made on Calvary. It’s a symbol of dying to be resurrected with more power. As you remember that death, take the time to consider what may need to die in your life so you can make room for a better you. Have you considered starting with your attitude?{{more}}

Good or bad attitudes are contagious. It’s very easy to tell employees to have a positive attitude, but the difficulty comes in actually maintaining it. Each employee is personally responsible for the attitude they choose on a daily basis. Regardless of the personal or professional concerns, true professionalism is being able to perform effectively and not let personal feelings interrupt or sabotage work quality.

It’s the way the telephone is answered, the way you are treated as you wait in line to be served, the length of time it takes to be acknowledged, the manner in which projects are performed and the tone of voice used when interacting with others. These are just some of the instances through which attitudes are expressed in a business and personal environment on a daily basis.

Here are a few tips to help obtain and maintain a positive attitude.

Having a positive attitude is a commitment you make to yourself every day. It’s consciously making the choice to react to daily situations in a constructive, productive manner.

See the good in people and don’t automatically assume everyone is out to get you. Some people choose to have a bad attitude the minute they see someone they may not like. How unfortunate that you allow one person to dictate your attitude with their presence.

Avoid or reduce time spent with coworkers who complain or have a negative outlook on life personally and professionally.

When problems arise that may cause you to react negatively, it’s best to take a few minutes to regroup and think about your approach.

Always take the time daily to imagine yourself having a good day, even when things seem dismal. Expect the best.

Sometimes you talk ourself into a bad attitude because you keep telling the same stories over and over again, and with each retelling it does nothing for you. Be quiet.

Attitudes do have a tremendous impact on all organizations, and at home. According to Charles Swindoll, life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. This Easter, let your positive attitude be resurrected so you can be a light to those around you.
