Chapter 3. Possessing a Positive Attitude > What Is a Positive Attitude?

What Is a Positive Attitude?

Attitude is your general disposition—your mental starting point for viewing life and the people and events in it. From your viewpoint, attitude is the way you look at things mentally, and it all starts inside your head. For others, your attitude is the overall mood they interpret from what they see you say and do.

On your way to work, think of attitude as the mental focus that you have toward the day ahead. Like using a camera, you can focus your mind either on the positive or negative factors that exist. You can view your work station as an interesting place where you can grow, learn, accomplish career goals, and have some fun; or it can be a drag from the time you arrive until you leave. Perception—the complicated process of viewing and interpreting your environment—is a mental phenomenon. It is within your power to concentrate on selected aspects of your work environment and ignore others. Quite simply, you take the picture you want to take of your job and career.
