Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results – it applies equally in business as well as personal life. On the other hand, negative thinking expects the worst and often this becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. Negativity can become infectious and damaging to a business.
Working under pressure can be stimulating and motivating, but when demands and pressures become excessive they can cause stress. Stress can lead to emotional and physical health problems for individuals and is a major cause of absence from work. Work-related stress causes nearly one third of all work-related illnesses and is a major cost to businesses.
