"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

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.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Attitude Color: Speak Enthusiastically -- Motivate and Inspire.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- Is your language predominately positive or negative?
- What is an example of a negative expression you commonly use, and what positive words could you replace it with?
- What words could you change right now to create a more positive experience?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Attitude Factor 3H? (Speak Enthusiastically -- Motivate and Inspire.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (3H rated 8 or better) suggests you are an inspiration to everyone you meet. Your upbeat conversations with others are a natural expression of your optimistic attitude. Even when you feel less than cheerful, you know you can increase your own enthusiasm by expressing a more positive attitude -- both in what you say and how you say it. Fully aware of the impact your attitude has on others, you take care in presenting a positive impression. Far from faking enthusiasm, you focus on the positive possibilities. This skill is one of the qualities that makes you an inspiring leader and fun to be around.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who walks around in a cloud of gloom. Your most common discussions focus on fearful concerns rather than enthusiasm for the future. When speaking with others, a criticism comes up in conversation more quickly than a compliment. As a matter of fact, it's uncommon for you to even give compliments. You know your speech has a direct effect on others, but it's rare that you overcome your negative feelings to a point where you can inspire others to overcome theirs.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 3H more frequently?
You have more power. People are inspired and gain confidence when they talk with you.
You accumulate performance positives like "Motivational, Encouraging and Uplifting" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 3H?
You have less power. Conditions rarely improve as a result of what you say or how you say it.
Negatives like "Critical, Disparaging and Discouraging" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
