05 YES! Attitude – Lessons Learned from the Teachings of Jeffrey Gitomer, Seth Godin, and Dr Seuss

In this episode, we discuss the secret to a YES! attitude.  Attitude is the single most important element of success in our business, social and spiritual lives, yet we spend virtually NO time studying attitude formally.

“Positive attitude is defined as the way you dedicate yourself to the way you think.  The definition for a negative attitude is exactly the same.” – Jeffrey Gitomer

We spend a LOT of time thinking, teaching, and working on the subject of attitude.  Working with Jeffrey Gitomer and some of the other Gitomer Certified Advisors has been pivotal to our success because of the team’s focus on getting and maintaining a YES! attitude.  So how can you get your YES! attitude?  In this episode, we will discuss techniques such as:

  • Visualizing your YES! moments
  • Maintaining the proper perspective
  • Focus on those things within your control
  • Controlling what goes into your mind
