Business Tips Corner: A bad attitude can be changed!

You can always change your attitude if you have a bad one. According to John Maxwell "it is a matter of personal choice." He also points out that "who we are today is the result of choices we made yesterday." He further goes on to say "tomorrow we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose to change."

He therefore proposes eight ways that one can choose if he or she "genuinely desires to." They are as follows:
  1. Evaluate your present attitude
  2. Realize that faith is stronger than fear
  3. Write a statement of purpose
  4. Have the desire to change
  5. Live one day at a time
  6. Change your thought patterns
  7. Develop good habits
  8. Continually choose to have a right attitude
Changing one's attitude is a difficult and an ungoing process. You must be committed to change.
