Positive Thinking for Powerful Success! Influence and Persuasion Expert, Karen Keller, Ph.d, Advises 5 Steps for an Attitude That Gets Results

Fort Wayne, IN, May 05, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Attitude is a choice. Women are confronted daily with situations, words, outcomes that force them to choose a response. That response is based decidedly on their attitude. Attitude is the difference between winning the battles, but losing the war. Influence and persuasion expert, Karen Keller, Ph.D, advises 5 steps for developing a positive attitude for success and results.

According to Keller, “Your attitude albeit positive or negative is one of the few things in this world that you have total control over. Women have the power to open or close their minds to failures, pessimistic people, and past conditions. You can discipline your mind to take charge of your thoughts.”

Here are 3 of 5 tips Dr. Keller suggests for creating an attitude that gets results:

1. Learn everything you can. “Seek as much knowledge as you can about whatever it is you want to do. Leave no stone unturned. The more you know the more confident you will be. High confidence leads to greater self-worth which builds positive attitude. Your positive attitude has everything to do with your success.”

2. Know where the landmines are. “Identify what could go wrong. Not in the way of being a constant devil’s advocate. But knowing the pitfalls ahead of time helps you maneuver your way around them. Leaving these pitfalls unknown breeds fear. Expose them. Evaluate them. Solve them.”

3. Practice positive self-talk. “Self-talk is the conversation you have with yourself. Your mind is powerful, especially the subconscious mind. It doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined. So, tell it, 'You are intelligent, confident and strong.' The subconscious mind will always agree with you. Once your mind agrees then it begins encouraging down a path that leads only to success. Of course, the alternative is also true. If you tell your mind that you are dumb, careless, and insecure, your mind will encourage you with these thoughts.”

Keller concludes, “Old feelings from the past can be triggered by others around you, but it is your decision or choice as to how you will let it affect you. Know your hot buttons, examine why they affect you, change your thinking about these buttons and take charge of your present and your future.”
