“Gratitude and attitude are not challenges; they are choices.”
~ Robert Braathe

It’s easy to have gratitude and a positive attitude when everything is going great, but what about on the tough days? That’s when it’s most needed, and hardest to embrace. It’s hard to put a smile on your face when everything is a struggle, or to find the good in a lousy situation. And it’s damn near impossible to embrace a positive attitude through negative circumstances. I get it, but if it’s all you’ve got, it’s a heck of a lot.

Even the smallest “I’m grateful for…” is a reminder that good things are all around us if we choose to look for them. And if nothing else, a positive attitude will make the journey through the muck a heck of a lot more tolerable.

Through the highs (which I hope are plentiful) and the lows (that we all face from time to time) look for the good and go from there. With that mindset, the only way is up!

High-performers exist at every level of your organization, so what are you doing to tap into your team and unleash their energy?

When you embrace the energy habits of high-performing people you show up as a leader and strive for success in all you do. You take on bigger challenges, and better manage stress. You find ways to take care of your energy – mind, body and spirit – no matter what is coming at you. You feel great about yourself and your capabilities. What’s possible from there?
