Most occupations require people to work with and, in some cases, to manage other people. Your attitude plays an important role in how you motivate yourself and others. Employers regard a positive attitude as a very important characteristic of a good employee. A well-known businessman once said he judges job applicants mainly on the basis of their attitude. According to his approach, job candidates are judged as follows:

- 5% on the basis of adaptability;
- 5% on the basis of skill; and
- 85% on the basis of attitude.
