This month I want to focus on self-success. We are often our own worst critics and this can in turn lead us to be down on ourselves. It can affect work performance and lead to leadership and worker issues.
How often have you made a mistake and then beaten yourself up for it? Often we are the only ones who know that we made a mistake but you would think the whole world knew. I often coach people on public speaking and remind them that the only person who knows you may be making a mistake is you so don’t be too harsh on yourself. This goes for a lot of things we do and say so the key is to make less mistakes and then be more positive about the outcomes. I view mistakes as “learning experiences” and take the time to figure out how to improve or fix it. This will often take some moments of calm and clear thinking but the solutions are often just in front of us. This goes for you staff as well. If you see them constantly down on themselves, you need to get proactive and help them to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. A smile will be your biggest reward.
My favourite life coach sent me this link on this topic. It is a great read and provides a lot of words of wisdom. The link is: http://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/02/whats-the-secret-to-success-be-nic…
A positive attitude and positive workplace will reap all kinds of benefits, the most of which result in great results. Try it out. As my dear coach often says “the law of attraction is always working”. So it is up to you whether the attraction is positive or negative.
