Positive action is something most of us do without realising it. Have you noticed that during each day you’re making small decisions that affect your life? These positive actions affect your family, your business and some of those decisions could be major ones and be very important to your future. A lot of positive action decisions are made unconsciously; so, by talking them through with yourself in your mind does really help. Positive action obviously, will be made very consciously; because this is the way your mind affects your positive actions and your attitude. Very often I’m sure you’ve caught yourself looking at one course of action and then thought “I really don’t want to do that” so, this is when you’ve had to say to yourself. Stop being a “Negaholic” and start thinking and talking like a looser. You need to become “Positive” again and start thinking you’re a winner, what you’ve done is to turn it around by a “positive action”.
We learn from our school days not to take initiatives so, we pass all our lives by hardly taking any! From a very early age we are taught to behave according to rules that have been set for us. Respect the authority and the hierarchy and don’t criticise them. They are “authoritarian” enough to know better. Like super-humans. Our parents, our teachers and some of our friends have expectations of us and it’s hard to “fail” them by choosing a different direction. Even the thought of losing their acceptance is freaking scary. I learned many years ago that to take positive action gave me an edge over other business people who procrastinated over making decisions and in a few cases I got the contracts before my competition did.
