Just sitting down and reading Orrin Woodward & Oliver Demille‘s new book LEADERSHIFT which I just received in the mail a couple days ago. WOW! This is a much needed book for the North American people.
Here is a quick message I want to share with you. I want to talk “Attitude” today. Everyone has an attitude. The question is, is it a positive or negative attitude? As humans, our natural tendencies is to think of worst case scenario instead of best case scenario. Claude Hamilton has always thought me to think best case scenario. To become an optimist and chase your dreams. Now, several years ago I would have read those last sentences and said “well..ya but..you’ve gotta be careful sometimes and think of the worst case scenario”. And to a certain extent I agree with that statement. However there are no successful people out there who will tell you to become a pessimist. All great leaders, all successful people have best case scenario type of attitudes. They are optimists. Most importantly they have positive attitudes!
Author Dr. Denis Waitley (Psychology of Winning) says there are 3 types of people; #1-Spectators: They are the majority who watch life happen. They avoid the main arena for fear of being rejected, ridiculed, hurt or defeated. Then there are #2-Losers: They are the people in our abundant society who never win..for they would rather look like..dress like…have fun like…have a house like…or be someone else. You can always spot Losers by the way they envy or criticize others, after all misery loves company. Then there’s the #3-Winners: These are the few who put themselves together across the board – at work, at home, in the community and in society. They set and achieve goals which benefit themselves and others. Winning is a way of thinking, winning is all in the attitude!!!
And talking about a winner’s attitude, the LIFE community in Moncton, NB area is very excited to have Wayne MacNamara come in and deliver a great message on Saturday May 11th. My friend Calvin from PEI created a great audio remix of a fired up speech by Wayne. Everytime I listen to it I get chills. Wayne & Raylene are great friends of ours and have become some of our idols with their latest accomplishments. Have a listen & we’ll see you on LIFE Seminar day!
