... and one of the best ways to do that is to be positive yourself. Positivity and good attitudes have a way of attracting more of the same. On the other hand, negativity by others drags you down as your negativity drags others down.
If there is someone who drains you because of their constant negativity, I suggest that you find ways to spend less direct time with that person. On the other hand, if you find that some people really lift you up, spend more time with them. In fact, find out what it is about them you like and copy that.
I think that we have a bigger influence on each other than we realize. I am so very fortunate and blessed to have a boss here at WTWH Media who reminds me to stay positive. Scott has greatly revived my career by not only being a positive influence but by giving me reasons to stay positive.
In January, I will be wrapping up two years at WTWH Media and it has been a very wonderful experience. A big reason for that is the very positive attitude that exists here and is shared among all of our employees. It means more than we realize.
Be a positive influence in your workplace starting today. Find the best in others and remind them of their good qualities and share your enthusiasm with them. That is a winning strategy for any organization.
