The concept of positive thinking is not new for anyone. Yet, we often fail to practice such in our daily lives, whether at work or home. Developing the mind of leadership requires us to consider the influence of our attitude on everyone around us.
Recently, I read the following statement by Leah LaBelle, “Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”
Sadly, at some point we will deal with those who are critical and negative. They look for ways to put others down or criticize. We could spend several posts to discuss why, but that is not the point.
We must remember to utilize our strength and courage to believe in ourselves and use negativity or criticism in a way that becomes positive in an effort to achieve our plans.
This characterizes the power of our leadership.
