Do you own your attitude? Or do you let other people determine how you feel?

An attitude is a ‘feeling’ an ‘emotional state’, and we all have ultimate control over the attitude that we have and the way that we feel.

The problem is that many people give the power of ‘how they feel’ away to others, and if there is one thing you want to have control over, it’s how you feel!

Whether you are the team leader, or a member of the team, your attitude will determine how successful you are in life…

Your attitude will determine how the team you are on will perform and support each other…

Your attitude will determine the clientele you have…

Your attitude will determine what you learn in life…

Your attitude will determine how much money you make in life…

You have control of your attitude…

I say to my youngest daughter “No one else determines how you ‘feel’ unless you give them permission to.”… Predictably, she now she says it back to me. 

Granted, you don’t always have control over the events that happen to you in life, but you do have total control over the meaning that you attach to those events.

To illustrate the point, if someone on the team is being lazy and not helping out, that is an event [or series of events] that you may not have any control over.

However, you do have absolute control over how you let that make you feel…

For example…

You may choose to let that make you feel, ‘angry’ because it’s not showing teamwork, and it’s giving you more to do…

Or, you may choose to feel, ‘curious’ as to why they are not helping out…

Or, you may choose to feel, ‘pity’ for them as they are missing out on the feeling of being part of what team work really means.

Or, you may even choose to feel, ‘happy’, because you know that you – and others on the team, will get some future reward and acknowledgement that they won’t…

The key to how you feel is this;

”What are you thinking about, what is it that you’re focusing on?”

Because that is what will determine how you are feeling, and what you are ‘thinking about’ and ‘focusing on’ you have absolute control over.

So remember – no one else determines how you ‘feel’ unless you give them permission too.

The number 1 most important thing that will determine your success in hairdressing and in life, is your ‘attitude’ so take control of it, own it.

Thank you for watching…

Have a great week!
