Is Your Attitude Worth Catching?

I was going through my email this morning and was happy to find a message from Simple Truths by Mac Anderson.  Whether you are involved in network marketing or a brick and mortar business, the following rings true!  Don't we sometimes overlook the simplest clues for being successful in both our business and personal lives?

Did your mother ever say, "Be nice."  I know mine did! When we treat others with respect and listen to what they have to say, we build strong relationships.  For me, one of the greatest things about Network Marketing is being able to choose the people I work/have fun with! 

When you "flip the switch" from accepting anyone and everyone into your organization to searching out people who have a cheerful, "can do" attitude, life becomes so much more pleasant wouldn't you agree?

Let's hear what Mac Anderson has to say, and be sure to catch the video, "You Can't Send a Duck to Eagle School." at

"...I've learned in my 30 years as an entrepreneur. And the one I'm about to share is near the top of my list. The chapter is titled, Attitude Isn't Everything, but It's Pretty Darn Close.

Excerpt from: You Can't Send a Duck to Eagle School, by Mac Anderson

When hiring someone, start with the premise that attitudes are contagious. Then ask yourself one theirs worth catching?

I've been in business for over 30 years and I've come to realize the difference in success and failure is not how you look, not how you dress, not how much you're educated, but...HOW YOU THINK!

In my business life, I've watched many very intelligent people fail miserably because they have a negative attitude; and I've also observed just as many people with average intelligence soar to success because of positive attitudes.

Southwest Airlines' VP of People is often asked the question: How do you get your people to be so nice? Her answer is always the same...


It sounds almost too simple to feel important, but "hiring nice people" has been the cornerstone of their amazing success in a highly competitive industry. They understand their competitors may be able to match their price and copy their business model, however, they feel that the spirit and the attitude of their employees will be extremely difficult to replicate. Never forget...

Great customer service is only delivered by nice, passionate, caring people. There is no other way it can happen."

Make it a GREAT day and Soar with the Eagles!
