Developing Positive Attitude At Work

Developing positive attitude at work can determine how successful you are in your career. However, this can be tough especially when things seem to go wrong all the time.

I had my fair share of setbacks throughout my career. Along the way, I started developing positive attitudes to help me deal with these setbacks.

Remember you are your own career builder and you are responsible for your own success. These tips are those that worked for me.

You can adopt or adapt them in developing your own positive attitude at work.

1. Do The Best You Can And Tell Yourself The Best Has Got To Be Good Enough
How much better can we do a job? I believe, as long as we do the best we can, within the situation we are in - the work will take care of itself. There will always be critics who will come off as what I call ‘fake perfectionist’. People who seem to know how best to do a better job without understanding the limitations you have to work with. Let them be. These people just like to take on the persona of a ‘perfectionist’ in order to criticize.

2. Things Aren't As Bad As You Think They Are
I remember reading a research article once that said only 4% of our worries come true. And the 4% are usually very small worries. When things seem to go bad for me and I start to worry, I remind myself of this. You are better off focusing your energy on your work.

3. Think Positive, As You Think So You Are
'Think Positive' is probably one of the most cliché terms that you have heard but worth repeating over and over again.

You can call it 'count your blessings' or whatever term you want to use. It's the truth, when faced with challenges sometimes we need to ask ourselves, what can be worse?

Get out of the 'Poor 'Ol Little Me' syndrome because that isn’t going to help your cause. Especially when you are trying to complete an important assignment.

Developing positive attitudes at work isn’t easy. As with everything in life, you need practice. Just pick one of these listed and remind yourself of it each time you start to worry or face any challenges.
