The beginning of the new year provides an opportunity to take stock and make decisions to change behaviors and/or pursue new goals. For most of us, these resolutions will quickly be lost in the shuffle of our lives or become unattainable due to a variety of factors. One of the factors related to our ability to be successful in achieving our personal, group and institutional goals and resolutions is a Big Idea – ATTITUDE. Simply put, our attitude is the way we think or feel about things and the impact this has on our behavior. Quotes from public figures lauding the importance of attitude as being a critical variable for being successful are plentiful. There is also a growing amount of research demonstrating that our attitudes impact our performance, relationships, health, and success.
