What is Your Default Position?
Day in/Day out... That is what we do in our default position of life. We get in a routine of actions that seem automatic. We also get in a routine with our attitude. We hold our attitudes about other people, even if we know a little better than that. We may learn something about a co-worker that should change our attitude to a more positive one, yet we work hard to maintain our perception of that person in the same light. Why? We also hold our attitude about our ability in certain areas. "I'm not good at math," is said by a LOT of people who don't agree that math ability can be improved if you want it to improve. The latter is a growth mindset, which we would all benefit from adopting. Here's a thought: think the best possible story about everybody... including yourself.
