Positive thinking; Can it be trained or is it a natural trait?

Positive thinking; Can it be trained or is it a natural trait?

There are many schools of thought that would have us believe that an individual’s ability to think positively in all situations is an inherent part of that individual’s character and no matter what, people with a bleaker outlook on life will struggle to be positive.

It has however been proven that positive thinking can in fact be taught, and individuals can be trained to be more positive in their life and in their work and that therefore training positivity or positive thinking is a very worthwhile activity for any employer to carry out.


Positive thinking training and practice with staff works.

If all sales people were to walk into a situation where they expected to make the sale or take the order then they probably would be able to take that order, conversely if they walked into the very same situation simply wondering if they were going to be able to make a sale then the chances would be diminished simply by the fact that their negative attitude would reflect in their actions and therefore result in a situation that would be less conducive to making the sale.


The Be More Effective training process and approach to training and development lends itself to creating more confident people within an organisation, in turn those more confident people think in a more positive way and quite simply create an atmosphere that is in itself better for taking orders and making sales, good news for the employer but even better news for the employees because success breeds confidence which in turn leads to more positive thinking.


Training can be given for anything and that includes training of mind and the ability to be a more positive person, organisations that have within them individuals who are trained to be more positive in every aspect of their daily lives and tasks are therefore more likely to succeed.


Using our training methods here at Be More Effective is a proven way to get your workforce in a better frame of mind which will benefit both you and them for years to come.

In the current uncertain economic climate, we need any little thing that can give us or our businesses the edge over our competitors and a positive mental attitude is an asset that fully deserves investing in for the future good health of the business.
