Winner Takes All: Exceptional People Teach Us How to Find Career and Personal Success in the 21st Century

By Noelle Nelson | Go to book overview

self or others, self-pity and martyring, anger that turns into bitterness, resentment, or rage, and defensiveness -- and identify those you hold and to what degree. As with the Winning attitudes, you may find you have negative attitudes about one area, but not about another. That's fine. Just be honest and neither assume you're flawless nor conclude you're a hopeless case. If you're like most of us, you have some baggage to release. That's all.


Step #3: Make the Necessary Adjustments

Take the areas in which you feel you are deficient, be they insufficient Winner's attitudes or an overdose of negative attitudes, and work with them. Follow the suggestions given in the pertinent passages, and refer to other sources -- self-help books, counselors, journaling, prayer, classes, whatever works for you -- as needed. Do what it takes to help yourself develop the attitudes that will assure your success in the Future, and to release those that will hold you back. Be sure to use the many resources you learned about in Chapter 6 to help you.

A Winner's attitude is what will guide you surely to success in the Future. Flexibility and your willingness to adapt and change course along the way are what will keep you there.
