Do You Create the Right Mind-Set?

Did you know that your mind-set is contagious? Have you measured the increased results of positivity? Is your glass half full or half empty? Do you bring your smile at work? Do you engage your colleagues? Do you take the time to create a good day?

Most leaders focus on achieving positive results at the end of the year. An easy way to increase business results is to ensure you have a positive mind-set.

Optimise the Use of Your Assets

Research shows that a positive work environment makes people more productive, more creative, removes stress and reduces sick leave. It´s a no brainer. Positivity increases results.

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results – Willie Nelson

As a leader, you ensure that your employees have the right tools to perform their job. Your most productive daily action is to motivate your employees to produce results. Your attitude is a tool. Your mind-set has to be motivating.

Every day brings new choices – Martha Beck

You naturally take care of your assets in the financial sheets. Your employees represent an asset. Make sure you provide them with the right environment to produce every day.

A Professional Mind-Set

I have happened to hear that I should not be too positive. Some people believes positivity does not look serious. A positive mind–set and a smile is not a contradiction to seriousness in business. So far, my smile has rather gained possibilities than losing them….and this has been valid in all situations.

A smile does not take away the fact that you can be firm – but be firm with a smile. Positivity means you understand and accept that life goes up and down.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do – Mother Teresa

Your smile is worth a whole lot. A smile is said to increase the customers’ willingness to pay a 10% higher price for your products. People like to be with likable people – either they are colleagues, suppliers or clients. Good mood is free, it represents service and it is a part of your marketing.

In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision – Dalai Lama

You usually get prepared for important meetings. You take time to read through documents and you write down your input. While you’re into preparation, you should also create the right mind-set that makes the meeting a success. Meeting your employees is a meeting. Prepare for it.

Create Your Positive Space

Make space in your calendar to produce your own positive mood every day. Find a way to make it happen. Optimize you’re travelling time to work. Listen to music that makes you happy. Follow a program at the radio that makes you laugh. Smile to other travellers.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight – Phyllis Diller

Our brain is pretty simple. Use your facial muscles, set up a fake smile and your brain believes you’re in a good mood. As a result, you automatically release happiness hormones…. which again gives you the benefit of an even better mood. You’re finally ready to boost motivation.

Your mind-set is contagious. I have used the technique for years. Even during the toughest managerial periods, I chose my good mood – it works. Bringing your good mood into business gives you an excellent return on investment.

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success – Swami Sivananda

Good luck with achieving positive results 🙂
