Take Action Now on Something New – Attitude

One of the best things you can do is take action now on something new like your attitude. Your attitude determines your altitude, so make it good.

At the beginning of each year, everyone makes lists of new things they will accomplish. and all kinds of great and wonderful achievements they will complete by the end of the year. In upcoming articles we will look at:
  • healthy living
  • following a dream
  • starting or re-starting a business
This week our focus is taking action now by getting a new attitude.

Take action now on something new like your attitude.


By February of each year, the vast majority of those resolutions are abandoned. This is because the people lacked the one thing they needed more than anything else in order to achieve those resolutions. That thing is the right mental attitude. I really like the phrase “right mental attitude.” I first heard it when I read the book, “Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice.” The right mental attitude is an attitude of success and accomplishment. There is a lot of difference between the wrong mental attitude and the right mental attitude including the following:

Wrong Mental Attitude

  • maybe I will succeed at what I attempt
  • if I do my best it doesn’t matter if I reach my goal or not
  • I should make a lot of plans and be satisfied if I get a lot of them done

Right Mental Attitude

  • I will succeed at something if I set my mind to it
  • if I do my best, and work smart instead of merely hard, I will reach my goal
  • I should succeed at all I attempt because I have properly planned my course of action

At the start of the new year, while you are planning what you are going to do, sit down and get the right mental attitude. It is the right mental attitude that will prepare you for success more than any book you will read, more than any seminar you will attend. There is nothing more important when you are taking action now than the right mental attitude. So the question for you this magnificent day is do you have an attitude designed for success?

  1. I did not write about keeping the right company. But that is an excellent point. If you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas. We have to be mindful of the company we keep. Thanks for that reminder.

  2. This is something that you have to work on if you do not already have it. You mention, reading books, like Think and Grow Rich…this sounds like a great selection. You also have to surround yourself with like minded people. Or else all the hard work that you do into making sure you are programmed for success can go out the window. You are right on the money Janeane, the right attitude is EVERYTHING!

  3. Corrine, thanks for stopping by. I am glad the article was useful to you. Attitude is something I personally try to work on all the time. With four kids and a husband watching I need to keep mine in check and on point!

  4. THANK YOU for this. While it’s been a really great year so far, it’s easy to take things for granted and let my attitude slip. I needed this reminder.

  5. Callie, your comment is so perfect for me. I started a container to fill with great moments from 2013 to look back at the end of the year. I got the idea on FB, it is funny. It is only the 7th of January and I have 4 things in the container. The things were great moments in my life. I think having a better attitude is helping me to have better outcomes!

  6. Thank you for reminding me to take a good look at my attitude as well as my day to see whether any nuggets were worthy of the title Magnificent Monday … and of course, there were a few!!!! Thank you!
