Success in any situation starts with your attitude – and your want to.
Which is why Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” A positive attitude and belief in yourself is great (and necessary) but here’s the next question you should ask:
Do you want to succeed?
Having the confidence to succeed is different than having the willingness to succeed. Wanting to succeed means you’re looking for ways to win in every situation and it changes the way you approach conversations and interactions with colleagues.
You can choose whether you want conversations to be productive and go smoothly.
