Attitude is simply a settled way of thinking or feeling about something. It can also be said to be a predisposition or a tendency to respond positively or negatively toward a certain idea, object, person or situation. Attitude has the power to affect, control or manipulate an individual’s choice of action, and responses to challenges, incentives, and rewards.
Moving on, Psychology defines Attitude as “a psychological construct. A metal and emotional entity that inheres in, or characterizes a person.” It entails complex and an acquired state through experiences.
Furthermore, Attitude in business means a positive mindset to business. Secret “ATTITUDE” in business development for me is the simplified alphabetical connoted explanations of attitude, which helps in directing our focus towards a positive mindset to a business setup.
