Thanks to Cassie from Mommy, RN for suggesting suggesting today’s topic: Positive Attitude.
If you tend to gossip or complain (don’t we all at times), you can get in so much trouble and you tend to get down on yoursef and others. Then you realize you picked on others which makes you more down on yourself.
When talking about people who love their jobs (like me – I love being a programmer) there’s a saying that if you’re really gung-ho about the company and the clients, you are “drinking the Kool-Aid.” This is typically thought of as a derisive comment (I think), more like saying you’re a suck-up. I used to feel like the kid who enjoys sitting in the front row of the classroom. Luckily my current job is the only one I’ve never felt this way about (which is why I’ve stayed around so long) but it took me a while to get here.
I don’t know what ever happened, to make ‘liking what you do’ a bad thing. To believing in your company and those who work with you. To trying your best and giving your all, and not for recognition, but just because you want to do well by the customer as you’d want to be treated well yourself.
When instead we put people down, or get really negative, even “for fun” in gossip, inevitably it turns into bad feelings. Even if it started out as a game, it doesn’t end as one. Keep positive, even under adversity, and your good attitude will serve to create a better result in the end. And you’ll feel better, too, even if you don’t know why.
