The Beauty of Having It All Fall Apart—How To Keep Your SHIFT Together
What’s the best thing about things falling apart? You get to decide how they get pieced back together! As a manager or business owner, it’s hard to keep every team member on the same page. But that’s the difference between an adequate boss and a great one.
More importantly, what makes a successful human being is their ability to embrace any situation that comes their way. From your professional to your personal life, there are a lot of situations that are going to test your patience and grit. Your attitude and your response to them determine what kind of person you are.
This is why America’s funniest motivational speaker, Steve Rizzo, talks extensively about your attitude in life. He says “When SHIFT happens, your life changes,” and we couldn’t agree more!
What do you mean by attitude?
Attitude is your outlook on and reaction to a situation. It’s a consciously developed response and choice that helps you make the most of a bad situation. It also involves setting your heart, mind and ambitions on something and shifting your perspective to make it happen.
Take Rizzo himself, whose book Get Your SHIFT Together draws on his own life while making general commentary on the importance of your attitude. His story of being written off as a failure to becoming a headlining comedian and then a wildly successful motivational keynote speaker is a reminder that the proof is in the pudding. Having addressed hundreds of audiences and being one of the top business motivational speakers in the country, the man has more than a few pearls of wisdom to share.
Get Your SHIFT Together
It’s not impossible to get your SHIFT together, as Rizzo puts it. His key takeaway is working toward a permanent, sustainable and measurable change in your life. It’s a different experience hearing this incredibly humorous motivational speaker address a crowd, but here are some of the highlights:
- SHIFT your thinking to get the results you want. You’ll work toward your goals more dedicatedly when you have a more positive outlook.
- Maintaining emotional stability and eliminating stress to create an environment conducive to productivity.
- Enjoy yourself and the process of achieving your goals. It’s easy to get caught up in the ‘results,’ but don’t lose track of the journey.
- Make sure the habits you create are lifelong and beneficial to both your business and your life.
- Don’t forget the “Power of the Humor Being” in your life.
