  So why isn't this under the Tips tab?

  Simple ... so many would not find it yet attitude drives so much of our behavior, helps
  our belief we can achieve objectives, removes roadblocks, helps us mentally to be
  better than we may have thought we were.  ATTITUDE IS, IN FACT, EVERYTHING.  Who
  wants to hire the person who doesn't go the extra mile. Who wants to hire the person
  who really looks like they do not want to be there. Who wants to hire the person who
  is not engaged and not excited to do something great?

  Henry Ford was dead on ...
  "If you believe you can't or you believe you can you are probably right!"

Regardless of how tough your job search is, it’s absolutely important that you maintain
   positive attitude during job search. This article explores 20 ways to maintain a positive
   attitude during job search. It introduces you to several key concepts which will help you to
   use your innate power to walk through this period in order to achieve incredible success and
   it illustrates unique ways to harness, focus on you, your personal inner calm and your power.
  


   Your attitude could be killing your job search right now.
   Sometimes, a job seeker's mind-set, especially if you've been searching for a while, can
   be a deal breaker in the eyes of employers. Here are four common examples taken from
   the Career Planning for College Students message board as well as some tips on how to
   overcome them.

   There are a variety of aspects of the job search a job seeker just doesn’t have any control
   over. Even with the great amount of effort you put forth, there’s no guarantee your
   experience level will impress your potential employer or you’ll make it past a phone
   interview.
   But there is one part of the job search you do have complete control over — your attitude
   — and it’s arguably the most important piece of your job search.
  


    Why Attitude is More Important than IQ!  |  Business Insider, Dr. Travis Bradberry                               03/23/2017
   When it comes to success, it's easy to think that people blessed with brains will inevitably
   leave the rest of us in the dust. But new research from Stanford University will change your
   mind (and your attitude).
   Psychologist Carol Dweck has spent her entire career studying attitude and performance,
   and her latest study shows that your attitude is a better predictor of your success than your
   IQ.
   


   It’s the one thing out of the entire process you can control. That's what makes your attitude
   vitally important in the job search. You can’t control when someone is going to call you back,
   or if the person liked you, or what the economy is going to do, but you can control your
   attitude and how you conduct yourself throughout the process.
