A Mind for Success

Every organization has its good and bad points, and no organization is without faults. Say, for example, you enter a company and find faults in it. Do you conclude that the company is totally bad? Or do you recognize it has a bad point, but make an effort to rectify or improve it with enthusiasm? These attitudes can be decisively different. With the latter mindset, trying to make the company better, will earn you the trust and confidence of others. Looking at things positively can contain the seeds of success.
