If you are focusing on the negative – I won’t get the promotion, I won’t be called in for an interview, this pitch is going to bomb – you’re absolutely right. You won’t be successful. If your glass is half empty, don’t be surprised when you meet with rejection, roadblocks and obstacles to your career success.
But by simply shifting your focus from negative to positive – you can change your destiny. Noted Harvard psychologist Williams James found: “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.” By changing your attitude you change your altitude.

By changing who you associate with, you can transform your mental game and propel your career success. Try it today! You’ll be surprised at just how uplifting, inspirational and impactful this can be.
Wishing you much career success!
