One very important characteristic of high achievers is their ATTITUDE towards the field in which they are. Roger Federer immediately said yes to WADA testing. Nadal cribbed but then accepted it. Indian players backed by the Board will initially say no, but may say yes under pressure. A decent chance of getting T-20 into the Olympics will make many Boards change their mind…
One news item in DNA said many Indian filmstars were down with fever but were continuing to shoot. Aishwarya Rai was shooting for Mani Ratnam’s ‘Ravan’ for more than 10 hrs. at a stretch in WET clothes and high fever. Priyanka Tweeted that she was not well but did not take time off from work. Shahid Kapoor could not shoot because his eyes were red. Deepika had Malaria….Look at all these peoples attitude! Aishwarya Rai has nothing to prove – she has it all, but said “She did not want Mani Ratnam to make a loss” – What a girl! That is attitude. All these people have a fantastic approach to their careers – as if their lives depended on it. Congrats, great.
One rainy day I met a friend. Her milkman had not come, but her paper wallah delivered the newspaper – a lil wet. Both had to come from the SAME place, and obviously TO the same place. Her daughter asked her “How come the paper walah came…but the milk man did not?”. She replied the paper walah is the owner, the milkman is the employee! Even in SSY (Sidha Samadhi Yoga) by Rishi Prabhakar of Bangalore he calls the attitude as ‘owner’ attitude or the ‘worker’ attitude. When you have the owner attitude, you accept responsibility; when you have the worker attitude you blame others for not getting things done. That is attitude.
So when you see a problem you define it “I did something to my body so I am running a fever” or you call up your HR department and report sick. As simple as that. Attitude.
