Reflected by effort

Reflection in a puddle

“Our attitude towards work is reflected by effort exerted.” #bgdtcoaching.

Work for some might be mundane, mechanical and undertaken without much thought or effort. It is easier perhaps to take a passive, negative stance and blame the outcome of the day entirely on other people, issues and circumstances. In this manner indifferent intentions are reflected by effort, or better by no effort.

Attempting to hide boredom or frustration behind a false smile or a display of frenzied activity rarely achieves the desired result. Attitude is reflected by effort exerted, and as attitudes are made visible through actions, everyone in this sense is constantly communicating something fundamental about themselves.

Others, and I imagine this includes you though please tell me if I am wrong, give everything for the sake of doing and being their best. Good intentions reflected by effort are clear for all to see. The days are possibly filled with no more ‘good things’ or fewer ‘bad things’ than those of anyone else. Yet how matters are approached makes all the difference.

Even on those occasions when things don’t quite go according to plan we can, if we so choose, still take something positive from the situation. An open-minded approach to the moment would be reflected by effort to find learning from the experience in order to better our input next time around.

Well, I have run on more than I intended so will bring this ‘Reflected by effort‘ post to a close.
