Getting Your Head on Straight.

What you see is what you get. How you view life determines how successful you’ll become.

The truth about productivity and success is that your attitude determines your results.

Before you even get started. Before you begin. Before you do the first thing. Before all of that, the outcome has already been decided.

Your results are determined by your attitude.

If you think that you are destined to fail — because that’s what you’ve done all the other times — then it’s rare that you will never win.

If you think that life is what you make it — and that you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get to where you want to be — you’ll eventually find your way there.

Attitude determines the result.

It doesn’t make the hard work any easier.

It doesn’t make the consequences of poor decisions any less bruising.

But it does do something uniquely special that neither effort or discipline can match.

A positive attitude will give you the will to figure things out until your expertise and results match your aspiration.

That’s the essence of winning after all — having the stamina to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.

That starts with what’s in your head.

What you think about. How you view failure and setbacks.

You might not need a new business plan after all.

You probably just need to get your head on straight.

Fix your attitude.
