There is Power in Your Attitude

Positive thinking can only benefit you

Positive thinking can only benefit you

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

Every person is equipped with the power to bring change. If you believe something will happen, be it positive or negative, it will happen. This power is known as intention. It’s a choice and we all control that choice with our attitude.

It all boils down to how you think. Scientists have proven that our minds get into a habit of producing thoughts with a certain mindset. If you usually see life through a negative lens, the chemical produced will be familiar to your brain. The same is true with positve thought.

This perspective will create a chain reaction that starts with the emotions we store and generate on a daily basis.If we learn to nurture the good feelings and discard the negative, then our energy will attract positive energy from others. A smile does wonders to create a better day, a better reaction, and a better life.

Being positive can only lead to good things in your life. Don’t accept defeat and never let negativity stand in your way. Don’t even let it effect your thoughts. Obviously this can be difficult at times. But if you are able to welcome the challenges that face you and take pride in what you have achieved, it will motivate you and energize you to continue this flow of good energy.

Only you can decide what your attitude will be. If you make the daily choice to have a positive attitude your positivity will rub off onto others and begin to change the world. Literally, your attitude and belief can change the world.

With The Right Attitude You Can Achieve Anything

You have to work hard for success

You have to work hard for success

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

At times the world can look like a scary place. Every day the media is full of nothing but bad news and it only seems to get worse. The truth is that there are a lot of bad things going on but, there are a lot good things happening too and they are what you should focus on.

Good things will come to you if you work for them. If you are passive and put no effort into your life, things will just happen to you, and you will have no control over whether they are good or bad. You should work hard at achieving a balanced life that is worth living. A business keynote speaker will have answers on how to do this.

You should always have a dream to follow. If you have the right attitude, you are capable of achieving anything you want. No matter how bad things in the world may look, there are still people out there who are achieving their dreams. Determination and perseverance will enable you to reach your dreams. You just have to believe in yourself. You won’t be the first and you won’t be the last person to be successful. You just have to make the decision to be positive and get on the path to your success. Ask a business keynote speaker for advice on how to get started.

The Only One You Should Be Competing With Is Yourself

 Competing with others is a losing battle

Competing with others is a losing battle

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

There is nothing to gain by competing with others. You will constantly be fighting an uphill battle if you try to compete with others. You will be wasting your valuable time and resources.

When you compete with others you are actually trying to reach someone else’s goals. In doing so, you will probably also be competing in a field that you are not good at and you will always be at a disadvantage. You will be better off pursuing your own goals. Listen to a motivational keynote speaker for tips on finding your personal goals.

You should strive to be your best in along the way to achieving your goals and forget about what others are doing. Your only focus should be yourself and your loved ones.

The only one you should be competing with is yourself. If you always strive to do better you will be able to accomplish so much more and reach your goals much quicker. It will benefit you far more than trying to beat others.

You should be proud of what you have achieved. We all start from humble beginnings and are capable of achieving great things with the right attitude. All it takes is a clear life plan and hard work and patience to achieve your goal. A motivational keynote speaker can help you plan your strategy.

React to a Problem With the Right Attitude. Get Rid of the Problem.

The problem isn't the problem. Jack Sparrow QuoteAndy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

recently spoke with a friend who was  frustrated because his boss would randomly come to him with a project that had to be done immediately without regard to the schedule already set in place.

The situation would go something like this:

Boss: I’ve got something I need you to do for me, and it has get done tomorrow.

Friend: Okay, but I have A, B and C due tomorrow, and I don’t have time to get this done too.

Boss: I don’t care. There are no excuses. I need immediate results and this has to be done now.

For the next hour, my client would spend time pleading his case to the office about how inconsiderate this was to his process and how he couldn’t get it all done. He would go to his supervisor and complain. He would go to his creative team and complain. He would go to his project manager to complain. He spent an hour complaining until a coworker finally said, “Let’s both get it done now.”

So the two of them sat down to get the project done and were finished in less than two hours. Progress was made and everyone was happy, and the following day, all the projects that had to be finished, were finished on time.

This is all well and good, but I couldn’t resist bringing up the point that he made his own day more stressful because he reacted negatively. Yes, his boss was being a jerk, but when it came down to it, everything was taken care of and complaining only hindered, “his process.”

In work and in life, stuff comes up that you’re not expecting. You may face difficulties on a regular basis that require you to sacrifice your process and react quickly.

This story brings me to four core productivity points.

1. Venting doesn’t help. 

Venting is one of worst things you can do if you want to stay motivated and energized. I depletes your energy and makes your attitude toxic. It’s distracting and makes everyone contemplate what negative things they have to think about. Picture a room full of babies and one of them starts crying. What happens? All the babies join in the sob fest. So rather than be that baby, be that awesome person who takes bad news and makes it good. Use this opportunity to be a problem solver rather than a troublemaker.

2. Sometimes you need to ask a teammate for help. 

It’s understandable that my friend was overwhelmed, annoyed and stressed when his boss threw this task on his plate. However, its not understandable that he wasted his and his coworkers time to complain when he could have spent that time to collaborate and finish the task at hand. He ended up getting the job done because of collaboration, because unlike venting, team work boosts energy and motivation. 

3. Go with the flow.

Once you stop resisting the challenges in life, you’ve learned to take the setbacks in stride. You’re day is stablized and you don’t let the emotions of stress get to you. When you do this on a regular basis, your days get better, and when your days get better, your life gets better.

4. No one likes a martyr.

Everyone is busy. Everyone has stuff on their to-do list that they don’t want to do, and if they had the option, would just as well skip. But life isn’t always about things being easy. So instead of giving the woe is me speech, shut up, get it done and mark it off your to-do list like a boss. This takes you from baby to badass in one swift move and that is definitely a better office reputation.

Want to Reach Your Goals? Reshape Your Attitude

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

We all have goals, passions and standards that we want to see reflected in our life. Most of what you accomplish is due to your attitude. Here are five reasons why:

  1. Confidence matters. How you feel about yourself makes a huge difference in whether or not you’re going to cross another item off your list.
  2. Be persistent. The difference between a leader who reaches their goals and those who don’t is that setbacks don’t discourage the former.
  3. See the big picture. Lifestyle design isn’t something you achieve in a week, it takes a lifetime. Chip away at your goals a little at a time and they’ll be yours before you know it.
  4. Always re-evaluate. This isn’t necessarily applied only to what your goals are, but the methods you use to achieve them. It can also mean that you re-evaluate whether or not you’ve set the right goals, or if it’s time to create a new list. Go with the flow and change when opportunities arise. Refusing to change rarely brings success.
  5. Think realistically. If you’re not cutting a six-figure income and you’re nearing your 50s, chances are multiple properties and winters in Florida aren’t in the picture for you. Be practical about who you are, what your skills and capabilities are, and how to retire in comfort and style.

If you approach your goals in the right way like a successful business motivational speaker does, you have a much higher chance of reaching them.
