I believe that attitude is the key to success. A person with a bad attitude will get nowhere in life. In fact, those with attitude problems are always alienated sooner or later. Furthermore, when we are working,the competition is already very stiff and therefore, brusque and tactless manners will just make one the main target to be pushed down the corporate ladders faster. In comparison, if you are nice to everyone, news will soon spread and you get a better chance of getting the much-sought after promotion. To illustrate my point,let's just assume you are boss with 2 candidates for a promotion. One's smart but with a major attitude problem but the other's fairly smart and gets along well with everyone. Guess who will you pick? Not only that, great and pleasant attitude will definitely be to your advantage especially when you needed help, say from the office boy to help with your photocopies or letter-sending. He will definitely be more willing to help if you are always nice to him. What do you think?
