I can’t assure you that the positive attitude at workplace will help you to get promotion in so-called corporate jobs. It will contradictory subject in today’s scenario of employment. What is your opinion if you are in a corporate or MNC? But when you keep the positive attitude at work place it will give inner peace in terms of meeting goals, completing project in time.
Today I want to share with you some very simple way that help you to keep positive attitude at work place even if you don’t like or enjoy your wok you are doing.
1. Acknowledge the problem and report quickly and professionally:
If you find hard to stay positive at workplace with a clear reason, report immediately to your boss. When report a problem be professional. Avoid “tattling” on your co-worker or passive aggressive behavior. Here I personally feel that the changes don’t happen overnight. So try to go to your boss not just with the problem, but with proposed solution that will beneficial for all.
2. Respect your coworker:
How is your co-worker? Your answer will help you to find whether you like them or not. It’s easy to get started on the wrong foot. However, if you treat your co-worker with respect and try to view the issues on their point of view then you must feel comfortable in workplace. I am not saying to like everyone you work with to keep positive attitude at work. It’s always better to support a healthy work environment.
3. Identify the negatives thoughts:
Do you feel angry about particular type of assigned task? When you say no without good reason? Do you have doubt on your abilities or believe you can’t do something?
I believe you have got some answers or hidden negative thoughts from the above questions. Now think about what would happen if you forced yourself to look at the situation in the opposite side saying yes, believing you can do something and feeling confident in your abilities.
I will suggest you to at least start to identify those negative emotions and whether they are justified or not, even you if you can’t change every single negative thought at workplace.
Do the numbers of negative emotions in your head surprise you once you start actively assessing your negative levels? You are not alone! This Positive attitude will help you to learn more positive attitude at workplace or everyday life.
4. Setting the goal:
Do you feel that you are on a spinning hamster wheel? One of the best processes to overcome from here is to sit with your manager and do set some realistic goals even there are challenges. Ask yourself- what you can complete in next week or next month? What successes do you want to see in next six month?
But I will suggest you to think in long term when setting the goals. Review your goals every 6 to 12 months to stay on track and set new benchmarks for success.
Don’t worry if you don’t meet every single goal. Goals are in place to help you reach for the stars, but you can always adjust goals you don’t meet or that no longer fit your needs. Here you must aware about which are your company goals so that you really understand what to contribute.
