John and Mark Cole then share a recent Learning Lunch story in which a new friend tells John how he was able to turn a $100 million setback into the most significant setup for success in his organization’s history.

In this episode on attitude, John encourages us to overcome five common challenges of maintaining a positive attitude. These challenges are discouragement, problems, change, fear, and failure. John addresses each potential threat to a positive attitude and offers sage advice on how to overcome it. Mark Cole, Richard Chancy, and Jason Brooks talk through their personal challenges with maintaining a winning attitude, and they offer various ways to reframe our perspective in a positive way. They talk about the fact that the “Success Cycle” John is fond of teaching includes failure, and they discuss the role failure can have in success. They encourage us to lean into the tension we feel around failure and see it as a part of the growth process rather than allow it to dampen our attitude.

I just started listening to your podcast. I am so Happy that I found this podcast. Today I realized you guys keep posting podcast that deal with exactly what I've been dealing with. Building Relationships and Price Tag of Leadership. I'm always trying to improve myself as a leader because I know I am not the perfect leader. I do have a question... How do you take criticism from someone that pushes all their work, meeting and anything else that requires them to stay late at work?
