Of attitude and the Weekly Wrapup

There were times when I believed I could rule the world. The time and especially the people life was throwing on my way however weren't good for my confidence. Losing that attitude has been the worst thing for everything I've tried. If I cannot convince myself, how can I convince anyone else?

What I've learned is it's all about the attitude. With the right attitude you can sell fireplace for a polar bear. Believe me, the poor thing doesn't need one. It doesn't really matter how great a fireplace it is. If your sales pitch sucks the polar bear will have you as a dinner.

The right attitude takes a person a long way. It comes down mostly, but not only to confidence. Confidence can display as cold and distancing laced with the "wrong" side attitudes. Being friendly and having a nice grounded sense of humor give warmth.

Last week on tasselflower blog (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Oli aikoja, jolloin uskoin voivani omistaa koko maailman. Aika ja erityisesti ihmiset, joita elämä on eteeni heittänyt, ovat karsineet itseluottamustani. Sen asenteen hukkaaminen on ollut pahinta kaikelle, mitä olen yrittänyt. Jos en pysty vakuuttamaan itseäni, kuinka vakuutan muutkaan? Olen oppinut, että kaikki on kiinni asenteesta. Oikealla asenteella saat myytyä vaikka takan jääkarhulle. Takan laadulla ei sinänsä ole merkitystä. Oikea asenne vie pitkälle. Suureksi osaksi siinä on kyse itseluottamuksesta. Itseluottamuksen lisäksi tarvitaan ystävällisyyttä ja huumorintajua, jotta vaikutelma ei ole liian kylmä. Yllä listattuna myös viime viikon tapahtumat tasselflower blogissa.
