August 7, 2014 by · Comments Off on WOW Word-Of-the-Week #522: Transformation 

Transformation a change or alteration, esp a radical one.

Are you having FUN at work? How about on the playground of life? Is it time for a radical change in your life?

This week’s WOW is from the Today’s Female Executive article and is a perfect follow up on self-awareness and self-management.

Work & life are supposed to be FUN! If you are in management it’s up to you to create an environment that allows your staff to have FUN and be excited about their jobs. And I say, “If you’re not having FUN at work, then you’ve probably made the wrong choice!”

Transforming your attitude is all about the habits and choices you make. If you want to have FUN at work and on a transthe playground of life then you have to initiate “the Power of Positive Programming.” The key is to constantly focus on and reinforce the positives. The reality is though; most people tend to focus on the negative. Have you ever heard the quote, “What you think about, you bring about?” So if you constantly focus on the negative that is what you will get. And vice versa!

When I am out spending my hard earned money, too many times my experience is that the person serving me acts like they’re “doing time.” It’s as if the sheriff pulled up, handcuffed them and brought them in to “do their time”– they’re prisoners. The question is, “Are you the jailer?” Or “Are you in the self imposed prison?”

Your positive or negative behavior directly affects all those people around you. And their positive or negative affects you as well. One of the definitions for Attitude is – a persistent disposition to act either positively or negatively. We all have attitudes based on our belief systems but what I’m talking about is whether you’re persistently positive or persistently negative during the course of your day.

Unfortunately, we are as a society are programmed more negatives than positives. The news is negative. Even the weather report is negative! They say, “Tomorrow will be partly cloudy.” Well guess what, it will also be partly sunny. Or how about when they say, “There’s a 20% chance of rain.” There’s an 80% chance it won’t! There’s always two ways to look at it. Some people say the glass is half empty; some say it’s half full. And if you ask an engineer they’ll say, “It’s twice as big as it needs to be.” And you know what I say? “Who cares, get me another drink!”

Having a positive attitude is often given as a secret to success. So if you want to be successful then you need to know how you get it, hang onto it and spread the fever to others! In the next 3 WOW’s I will share with you 5 FUN-damentals to get you started on the “Positive Attitude Programming Process” that I have come with over the years that work for me and the people that have attended my speaking presentations.

This week’s focus is on transformation. Is there a part of life that is in need of a radical change? Do you tend to focus on the positives or the negatives? Would you like to find more joy in your job?
