      • Rather than
      • Hard working
      • Loyal
      • Strong
    • How is your attitude?
      • Are you treating people and situations the same way we think about the donkey?
      • Are you discounting the good in them?
      • Are you only looking at the negative side and start reacting to it?
    • Typical method
      • We take action (react)
      • Then we stop
      • Then we think about, which comes out in regret and apologies
    • Thoughtful response
      • We stop
      • We think through our response
      • Then we act
    • E+R=O
      • Event + Response = Outcome
      • To often we blame the event or the person for our outcome
      • Outcome is a combination of the Event AND our Response to the Event
      • Response is Behavior
      • Behavior is a choice!
    • E + R = O
      • In the equation we only have total control over the R
      In any given situation 10% is what happens and 90% is how we react
    • Iceberg effect
      • Just like the iceberg is 90% below the surface
      • Our experience in any given situation or with any given person is 90% attitude
    • Choosing to change Behavior
      • Decide to change
      • Shift your focus
      • Curiosity not Judgment
      • Attitude of Gratitude
      • Don’t be perfect
      • Believe in yourself
      • Take action… NOW!
    • Decide to Change
      • The first step in your choice

        • Situation
        • Circumstance
        • Task
      • Will you change your Attitude about?
    • Shift your focus
      • Focus on what’s right rather than what’s wrong
      • Focus on what you have rather than what you don’t
      • Focus on solutions rather than problems
    • Curiosity not Judgmental
      • Rather than judging ask the questions:
        • Why is this person or situation like that?
        • What can I do to change the situation?
        • What did I do to contribute to the situation?
        • Is this even about me?
    • Attitude of gratitude
      • Find something to appreciate in:
        • Tough times

    • Don’t be perfect
      • Stop setting impossible expectation on yourself and others
      • Chose to accept failure as a useful step in the process of growing
      • If expectations are too high and failure is not an option discouragement is born.
    • Believe in yourself
      • Attitude is reflected in action
      • When you thin and feel good about yourself it is easier to see others positively as well
      • Not ego, but rather self confidence

    • Take action… NOW!
      • You can just read some positive statements or stand in front of the mirror and shout “Positive Attitude”.
