I am of the opinion that attitude is a choice. I have this opinion because I was once a negative thinker. After nearly a year of changing my mindset I now consider myself an optimist. AND I am a better person for having done so.
Question: How does attitude affect the success or failure of a construction project?
Answer: Optimism and pessimism are attitudes you are free to choose and to embrace. Whether for good or bad, your thoughts make you who you are. They direct your self-fulfilling prophecies. Positive or negative self-talk becomes reinforced into the paradigm that you have determined and then produces evidence to support your belief. If you think you will have a bad project, then you are definitely right. If you think you will have a good project, you’re probably right.
Point: Attitude is a matter of personal choice. It is the key that either opens you to success or locks you out.
