Here are 5 Ways to Positively Win an Oscar at Work:
Focus on the Part
As talented as you are, you have one part to play. Focus on that part and make it your role despite the distractions of a large cast of customers and teammates. Repeat the positive lines of success over and over until you get them right. Filter out the negative experiences.
This is the Perceive or mental core practice of your Work Positive lifestyle performance.
Friend an All-Star Cast
You act with others on the stage of your work. You support at times and are supported at others. The production is more than a monologue.
Surround yourself with positive people as team members. Remove the Eeyore Vampires—negative people—as swiftly and decisively as possible. They destroy morale. Productivity follows morale. Profits follow productivity. When profits evaporate, the red carpet fades to pink and then to nothing.

And be sure to thank your Mom!
