4 Attitudes To Be More Productive
If you want a better, happier life, and who doesn’t, then embrace these four attitudes daily. (By the way, these four attitudes will have a positive impact on your relationship with your significant other, too, because your partner will see you in a new light and be more attracted to you.)
1. Optimistic Outlook
According to Johns Hopkins, a positive attitude is a building block of resiliency. When we embrace an optimistic outlook, we become more flexible and adaptable to change, are more capable of solving problems and facing challenges, and enjoy stronger relationships.

When we feel pessimistic about problems and challenges, we tend to lose motivation and hope and fail to see solutions and what’s possible. Embracing optimism unlocks what were once seemingly hidden opportunities, enabling us to have success and achieve our dreams and goals.
2. Self Confidence
Self-confidence is important to just about everything that makes for a happy, fulfilling, and productive life. We all deal with self-doubt. The problem isn’t self-doubt. The issue is whether we let it rule our lives, which is harmful. (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/shyness-is-nice/201809/why-self-confidence-is-more-important-you-think.)
How self-confidence increases productivity:
- Self-confidence increases self-motivation: To build self-confidence and boost productivity, start with small goals and achievements that are guaranteed wins to get results and create momentum. Small achievements lead to bigger ones, which serve to motivate you further, making you more productive.
- Self-confidence increases resilience: Self-confidence gives you the courage to face challenges and adversity. The ability to work through problems instead of avoiding them guarantees greater success and productivity.
- Self-confidence increases self-esteem: The day you choose to know and like who you are and are comfortable in your skin is the day your life changes. When you know your strengths and weaknesses, along with your standards and values, you have a clearer understanding of your calling and purpose, which improves productivity because you waste less time and energy on stuff that doesn’t matter.
3. Being Highly Motivated
We can be motivated to achieve many things. But more important than achieving something is becoming something. When we’re highly motivated to become our best self because an average life doesn’t cut it anymore, we become more productive because we have the energy and drive to do whatever it takes to unlock our best life and reach our goals. It’s human nature to desire, strive, and grow. (https://positivepsychology.com/benefits-motivation/.)
4. Be Centered and Calm
Being calm and centered increases self-confidence and productivity because the result is a clear, concentrated focus, whereas running around in a flurry of anxious worry will scatter and dissipate your energy (and a huge time-waster too).
A calm and collected disposition allows you to plan, find the best path, and take inspired, deliberate action towards achieving your goals.
You can have a more productive and fulfilling life today by choosing an optimistic outlook, embracing self-confidence, being highly motivated, and living a centered and calm life. And not only will you begin to unlock your best life, but you will enjoy positive results in your most cherished relationship(s) too.
