Can attitudes be adjusted?

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.      -Maya Angelou Every self help guru will agree that success and attitude go hand in hand; that how you think and what you believe determine your outcomes. In fact, if you’re down, frustrated or filled with self-pity, almost anyone you talk to, given the chance, will say something to you like, “What you need is an attitude adjustment!” But …Read More  The post Can attitudes be adjusted? appeared first on Steve Taubman.

The Spirit of Cooperation

“We cannot build our own future without helping others to build theirs.”     -Bill Clinton As I move through the process of inviting people into my upcoming program, I’m reaching out to friends and colleagues quite a bit more than usual. I’ve been asking them if they’ll help spread the word by emailing and posting to their lists, talking about my material on their shows, and using any medium at their disposal to let people know …Read More  The post The Spirit of Cooperation appeared first on Steve Taubman.
