Post Training Discussion
Use the examples that Sam provided in the video to spur a final discussion around the training points from “A Kick in the Attitude!”
Lighten Up! Sam’s mother was able to see the humor in her sons using duct tape to amuse themselves on a long family car ride – despite the police! If she can do that, then you can find ways to “Lighten Up!” around the office and at home.
Keep Your Perspective In the face of his underwear taped to his suitcase on the baggage carousel, Sam made an incredible impression with his client and reaped the success of doing that! Remember to “Keep Your Perspective” because it’s important for your humor and your attitude.
Reject Negativity Hopefully we won’t have to test this with a terminal illness like Norman Cousins, but we can certainly learn from his example. Rejecting negativity can have such a huge impact on our lives – from our health to our relationships to our job success.
Practice! Anything worth having is worth working for. Like most things, having a positive attitude takes PRACTICE. Think of how much practice you needed when you learned how to drive a car. Do you think about that when you drive now? It will get easier and it will be worth it! Practice!
