qualifications might not be as important as the attitude. In order to have right attitude, it is advised that people should believe that their work is important and that they are important. The way they think about themselves and about their jobs determine how others will think about them. It also affects how their subordinates think about their jobs if they are in the management position.
The key point here is how to build a positive attitude at work. There are several ways of doing so. First of all, the author advised that we should give ourselves a pep talk several times daily. In this kind of pep talk, we give ourselves praises, confidence, and belief. The author believes that practicing it daily will lift up the confidence, and help build positive thinking and attitude that could bring success to people in life and in career. Secondly, people should upgrade their thinking and should think in a way that successful people do. In order to upgrade the thinking, people should appear in a way that would get utmost respect; should use the language that important people use daily, should discuss relevant things that successful people do; and should behave in a way that would be perceived as important people. In conclusion, dressing appropriately would help a person obtain the impression of others. In addition, having positive attitude would increase the chance to be successful in life and in the workplace. Following what was discussed in the previous chapter, in the topic of “Manage Your Environment – Go First Class”, the author once again concluded that people are greatly influenced by the surrounding environment. Their actions are formed and are affected by the environment people are living in. Even their goals, their thoughts, their attitudes, and their personality are shaped by the environment. Hence, it is advised that people should not meet negative people too often because doing so would make them think negatively as well. On the other hand, making and having relationships with positive people would increase the level of thinking and would make people believe that they could do great things in life.
