Episode 4: Attitude... Your FIRST Impression
I’m sure you’ve heard the expression;
“You only have one chance to make a first impression! “
Your attitude, is immensely affected by your self esteem. HOW you feel about yourself is reflected in your behavior. Nathaniel Branden in his best-selling book; “The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem” writes the definition of true self-esteem is; “Confidence in our ability to think, confidence in our ability to cope with the basic challenges of life; and confidence in our right to be successful and happy, the feeling of being worthy, deserving, entitled to assert our needs and wants, achieve our values, and enjoy the fruits of our efforts.”
I’m sure you already know that the most successful people have unshakable levels of self-confidence. They've accomplished great successes and happiness in their lives and they seem be able to achieve ANYTHING they set their minds to BECAUSE of their attitude. The fact is that when you develop an attitude of self-confidence, your whole world changes around you. Your perspective on things change, and HOW you look at your world largely determines your results. You have the confidence to take whatever steps and risks necessary. The impact of your attitude has a huge effect upon your circumstances in your environment, to how we operate in our career, how we deal with others, how likely we are to succeed, how much we are liked, how we fall in love to even how much we earn! A positive impression impacts EVERY aspect of your existence.
