Positive Attitude Diet Day 4: Speak only positive words.

Positive Attitude Diet Day 4: Speak only positive words.

In order to build and maintain a positive attitude, you must speak hopefully about everything — your job, your customers, your manager, your employees, your children, your health, and your future. Go out of
your way to talk optimistically about everything.

You may have to talk yourself out of uttering negative words. If, for instance, the man at the front of the company cafeteria line seems to be holding up everyone else, you’ll be tempted to make a snide remark to
the person next to you. Don’t do it. Instead, say, “It’s kind of nice not to rush every single minute of the day.”

When you have a positive attitude, you refuse to use a loser’s language. If you talk like a loser, you’ll end up losing. As George Schultz, the former U.S. Secretary of State said, “The minute you start talking about what you’re going to do if you lose, you have lost.”
