Everyone of us can learn from our seniors, mentors and those we admire. Every day is an opportunity to learn. One of my inspirations, whom I admire and respect is Mr. Jeff Botch from San Diego, USA. He is a talented writer, personal development coach and a sales professional.
It is with great pleasure that I share with you today, the wonderful prolific writer who invented The ASAP Model along with hundreds of motivational articles and published his book, “BIG FEATS” on children’s development.
Mr. Botch says that the determining factor in how your days, weeks, months and years will ultimately play out is directly related to your attitude. If you choose not to shape your attitude than what you are ultimately doing is giving other people and situations the ability to determine the outcomes in your life.
Below are 3 action steps he offers that you can use to take control of your attitude.
1. Affirm “Today is going to be MY day,” when you wake up in the morning.
If you are not someone who has bought into affirmations yet than you are going to need to change your thinking. Affirmations are simply a way to program the types of outcomes you desire into your sub-conscience mind. The simplest way to explain the power of affirmations is using the example of that 1st song you hear in the morning. If you wake up to a clock radio and hear some corny song you’ll likely be humming it all day long. By affirming the same positive thought into your mind from the moment you wake up you’ll surely be replaying it throughout your day and ultimately giving your sub-conscience mind the ability to manifest the result.
2. Smile at everyone!
Take this as a challenge and try to make good on it for an entire day. Everyone that you make eye contact with should receive a smile from you. This simple change from not smiling to smiling at everyone will not only brighten up the other person’s day but it’ll change the way your day unfolds.
3. Let drivers merge in front of you when you have the opportunity. You should have a couple opportunities every trip you take. By focusing on this simple act, you’ll start to change your mind frame from that of “What’s in it for me?” to “How may I serve?” When you start to think of the other person and honestly care about their needs you’ll start attracting the things you want into your life.
Keep Smiling… 🙂
