“Great effort springs naturally from great attitude.” – Pat Riley
Today’s Motivational Monday quote comes from an NBA basketball great. Pat Riley is widely regarded as one of the best basketball coaches of all time. He won five championships as a head coach, and was named coach of the year three times.
Do What You Love
Do what you love. That’s what they say right? Do what you love and you’ll do great work. But it’s not always easy to love your job. You have to work up the ladder to a better position. You have to put in your time and gain experience. It can be stressful and hectic slowly working towards your goals; so how do you still do great work, even if you’re not at a stage where you love what you do.
Have a Great Attitude
According to Pat Riley, its all about your attitude. Go into each and every day with an amazing attitude and your effort will follow. When you love what you do, the job often seems easy. It’s the same when you have a great attitude. When you walk into work with a great attitude, great effort and great work will follow seamlessly.
Give a Great Effort
It can be easy to feel resigned when working at a task that lacks excitement. Don’t think of the task at hand, think of the work you are accomplishing, and the results that it will bring. Form a great attitude for each and every task and job you accomplish on your journey through work life and without thinking about it, you’ll be giving a great effort that will get you noticed. It might even lead to a job that you love.
