TQ says"Your Attitude Makes ALL the Difference"

"Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can." ~ Richard Bach

Your TQ Training Challenge for Thursday, October 8, 2009:

Speak Enthusiastically -- Motivate and Inspire Others...
--
Did You Hear What You Just Said?

What you say and how you say it have a significant affect on both you and your listener. Choose the words that convey the most positive and powerful influence possible.

Speak in a positive, powerful and uplifting manner for the rest of the day. Then notice how it changes the way you experience the world and how you feel at the end of the day.

"Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force."~ Tom Blandi

Speak in a positive, powerful "way." This advice reminds me of a woman I used to work for, commonly known among the troops as "Perky." When the corporate clouds darkened and thundered as they often did, it became "Perky Plast" (as in Plastic). She never slipped.

Looking back, I see that the missing element in her perkiness was empathy and acknowledgment of the pain everyone was going through. It's possible to be positive and powerful without being perky and plastic.

Thanks, Sharon, for leaving a comment. I actually thought I had this configured wrong and people were unable to leave comments. Even when I tried to leave comments, they just went to my e-mail.
I was trying to post your daily suggestions to my blog, but couldn't figure out how.
