How much effort do you put into a task that you dislike? What about the effort you put into something that you love to do?
It is easy to have a bad attitude when facing something you don’t want to do. Maybe it is taking out the garbage, making dinner, or doing your taxes – we don’t want to do it, and we’re not happy about it. So, we don’t try hard, we take an easy way out, and we skip a few steps. That bad attitude seeps into the effort we put out.
Before you decide to never take out the garbage again, remember, a positive attitude can help make the task more bearable.
You can control your attitude and you can control the effort you give. Try having a positive attitude and giving your best at something you like the least.
Next time we’ll talk about how that combination of effort and attitude can make you more successful.
