Another Christmas has come and gone. I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year and taking the necessary rest we all need. I took a down week from training last week and stretched a bit. My work load was very heavy and I needed the rest.The high rep KB work has caught up with me and my body needs a little break from weights.
So today's post is about a book I started reading by one of my favorite authors, leadership expert John Maxwell. For those of you who are into self growth and becoming a better leader I highly recommend any of John Maxwell's books. This book "the difference maker" is about the importance of "ATTITUDE" and how it really does make a difference in everything you do.
So what exactly is attitude? Attitude is your inward feeling expressed by outward behavior. Ultimately your true attitude will wiggle itself out and it will be exposed. Here is what a good attitude cannot do for you:
1) Your attitude cannot substitute for competence.
2) Your attitude cannot substitute for experience
3) Your attitude cannot change the facts.
If you are 5 feet tall, your dream of playing in the NBA is out. Having a positive attitude cannot change reality. If you don't got it, you don't got it. As the old coach used to say, "You can't get out what God didn't put in."
4)Your attitude cannot substitute for personal growth. You still have to get out there and learn, apply and grow.
5) Your attitude will not stay good automatically. You must constantly choose to work on it and develop it. You can read, watch and meditate on CRAP or you can input words, music and information that is uplifting and empowering. The choice is yours!
More to come!
