Success Requires Attitude!

Some of us work from home because we own our own business and need to keep our overhead low. Others do it because they have convinced their employers of the benefits of letting them work from a home office or simply because their job involves working remotely or independently. However, what we all have in common is that we need to produce, we need to perform, we need to excel. And when we work from home, we need to self-motivate to get things done!

If we don’t meet our goals, we may lose the opportunity to keep our dream job at home. Furthermore, we all want to succeed at what we do, right?

I saw this quote by Lou Holtz, the famed football coach, this past week and although it was initially spoken regarding sports, it struck me as a perfect quote to motivate me to work hard at home. Working in isolation, it’s all up to me to make sure I have the right attitude to succeed!

 Take a look at your days and think about how much energy you bring to your job. Do you get yourself revved up in the morning and attack your to-do list with gusto? Do you exude confidence and positivity to your clients? Do you keep pushing forward when you have a rough day? Keep this quote in mind and make sure you are giving your job your all and keeping your attitude in line to achieve success!

  1. This is totally true. There are some moments I was jealous of others and wondered why I couldn’t get what they have. And when I looked back at myself I realized I didn’t try hard enough. If trying is not enough, try harder! This post just motivates me more!

  2. THANK YOU. I really needed this today, work was a major bummer =-(
