31 Aug A positive attitude goes a long way in achieving your goals
Hall of Fame Major League Baseball player Wade Boggs once said “a positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.”
And guess what? He was right … at least that’s what science says.
While it’s probably true that attitude isn’t necessarily everything when it comes to achieving a big goal like landing a good job, but according to recent studies, it IS probably the single most important factor.
In one study, conducted by the University of North Carolina, results exposed that people who simply think positively feel more motivated, regardless of what they’re trying to do.
Not only this, but another recent study led by the University College of London showed that people who are more optimistic are far more likely to succeed as well as take helpful advice about specific lifestyle changes that might one day lead to more success.

The best part about all of this is that a positive attitude is something that you and you alone can control. Nobody – not your parents, friends, coaches or professors – can regulate this aspect of your life in the way that you can.
Put simply, only YOU can decide if YOU want to have a good attitude. And that’s a good thing because it means that YOU are in total control and YOU are the one who has the power to change things and succeed.
Getting your attitude in check can be difficult, but once you do, you’ll be amazed by how dramatically things can change for the better.
