Your SUCCESS Starts With a YES! Attitude

Everything you accomplish in life will start with your attitude. Let’s start with the definition of attitude: manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind:

It’s so easy to let a bad attitude slip into your life. IF YOU LET IT.

Everyone has an off day every once and awhile.  By nature, you may not get along with everyone, but to let something or someone ruin your day is unacceptable.

If you let something or someone bother you for more than five minutes, that’s too long!

For me, after a long hard day at the office, sometimes I just want to go home and insulate myself from the world. The person that is often on the other end of my bad attitude is my son, Tyler.

He has received my long lectures about everything from his school grades to his future career. Poor kid didn’t even know what hit him when he walked in the front door. It turns out my bad day was placed directly on his shoulders.

So ask yourself, ‘How is my attitude?”

If you’re honest with yourself, it’s probably not good enough. Let’s do a quick assessment and see how you answer the following questions:

  1. Does the traffic bother you?
  2. Does the weather bother you?
  3. Does watching the news bother you?
  4. Does your boss get your goat?
  5. Do your fellow employees get on your nerves?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above questions, then you probably need to work on your attitude. Not only do you need to work on your attitude, you need to learn how to obtain a YES! Attitude! (Jeffrey Gitomer explains a YES! Attitude in his book and workshop by the same name)

A YES! Attitude is way more powerful than having a regular good attitude.


Because it assumes that everything you say and do will start with YES! Even when it’s “No.”

Attitude is something you acquire through study and practice. It takes work but is well worth it in the end.

Once you’ve gained a better understanding of the concept and apply it into your life, things start to happen.

Good things.

A YES! Attitude is the foundation for success in every aspect of your life.

And the good news is, it’s not too late to acquire a YES! Attitude.
