Seeing the glass half full will lead you to success. I believe that positive thinking and positive energy will both lead one down a pathway to being successful in business. There are always opportunities for improvement, opportunities to grow, to change and to adapt in today's business world.
Attitude is everything. Attitude influences how you act and how you respond. It's your outlook on business. It's how you treat your customers. It's the way you interact with co-workers and other leaders. It's your conduct. It's your reputation. How important is your reputation? It's the key to a referral. It's the key to return business. Are you looking to just get the job done or to do the job well? Take pride in your work and show respect to the people you work with. It will reflect positively in your attitude.
Listen. Take the time to learn why your customers do business with you. Take the time to ask what other products or services they need that you don't currently offer. Their response could be future business opportunities. Know your competition. If you aren't listening to what consumers want and learning what their options might be, you are not being proactive.
Be an optimist. Keep an open mind to the possibilities. Think big. Take control and accept responsibility for the direction you want to go in. If you use your energy to focus on finding blame, you are not leading. Stay away from downers. Focus on finding a solution. Solutions can lead to change. Change can bring new opportunities to a glass half full.
Change is happening in our business economy today. The culture of our organizations is different. We talk about generation gaps, Baby Boomers, Millennials, and each have unique goals and perspectives. Our downtown business communities attract distinct consumers and we attract our consumers virtually! Our manufacturers are now high tech and require new skills. Find ways that embrace change in your organization.
Be positive. Be open-minded. Look forward. Look at the glass half full and you will yield success.
