What do you think is the greatest asset in finding a new job and starting it well?

Q: What do you think is the greatest asset in finding a new job and starting it well?

A: Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden has so many quotable pearls, and one of my favorites is that ” things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” The greatest asset…or certainly one of them…for finding a job and hitting the proverbial ground running is being able to manage your attitude, daily.

There are ups and downs in any job search and in any job, but if you can stay as positive as possible, dedicate yourself continually to digging deep and displaying your confidence, and executing with excellence in the search and in the new role you find, you will also find that maintaining the right attitude not only wins the day, but on any day is easier than regaining the right attitude.

Read the literature on attitude, and then make a choice about yours.
