The Attitude Quiz

91 - 100

Congratulations!   You have an amazing attitude. You are positive, you believe in yourself and are confident in your abilities. You are not too quick to judge those around you, because you yourself are always striving to improve. You have passion for what you do and the things you believe in. You are a success story in the making!



Not bad!   Your attitude could use a little tweaking though.   Begin by examining the degree to which you step up and take control of the things in your life.   Give the people around you the benefit of the doubt, and look for ways to increase your passion in your work and your life.   You’re close to a winning attitude.   A few adjustments, and you will begin to see significant improvements in every aspect of your life



Hmm. The news isn’t good, I’m afraid.   While you don’t stand out as someone with a “Bad Attitude,” you aren’t doing yourself any favours with the way you are looking at the world around you.   Take a good look inward.   Discover the things that you are good at - that inspire you. Take the time to identify those things that are truly important to you.   Use these to help you gain confidence.   Once you’ve done that, either find yourself a job you can be happy in, or find ways to be happy in the job you have.   You can find success, but it’s all up to you right now.



Oh dear.   One of two things have happened here.   Either you just filled in these answers as a joke, or you really, really need an attitude fix. Seriously, your attitude is lousy, and it is hurting any chance at success in life you might want.   The road to success will be a long journey for you – because you likely have some firmly held (but limiting) beliefs which are holding you back.   If you have the courage to begin some serious introspection, however, you will find the results to be no less than transformational.
