© Rafal Olechowski - Fotolia.comWhat is a personal success plan? Does it include having a positive attitude? Discovering the elements of a personal success plan is determined by oneself and one’s attitude. A positive attitude makes a difference in all aspects of life.

A number of years ago the top two hundred executives in America were asked what characteristics they look for when hiring an employee. The number one response was attitude or enthusiasm. It may come as a surprise, but a positive mental attitude does more to determine future success than anything else in life.

Probably the most successful basketball coach or for that matter any coach, John Wooden, talks about enthusiasm from his pyramid of success. “Enthusiasm (or positive mental attitude) is energy and enjoyment, drive and dedication that will stimulate and greatly inspire others.”

Each person must answer this question in their life: Does a positive or negative mental attitude rule?

Okay, even if there is a negative mental attitude, choose to change it. Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do.”  So consider changing what is repeated for the good! Start now by saying the right words, reading the right books, being with the right people and doing the right thing.

Over time a positive mental attitude can replace a negative mental attitude.
