Barber Education – Part 3: Always Keep a Positve Attitude

Throughout the process of continuing your barber education you will learn that there are many things other than being good at cutting hair that will contribute to your success. In order to succeed in the barber business as well as in life it takes an unwavering positive attitude. Positive energy is contagious. Everyone wants to be associated with a winner. Attitude alone will not make you a success, but you can’t be a success without one.

On the first day of a sales and marketing course I took in college the professor walked in the room and without introduction began writing on the chalk board. He wrote there are 3 types of people in the world:
-The should haves, could haves, and would haves (people who always make excuses)
-The just enoughs (people who do just enough to get by)
-The overachievers (self-explanatory)
Then Mr. H. introduced himself and asked the students which category each of us fit in.

This was a turning point for me in how I approached everything I did from then on. There was no way I was going to be in any category other than the last one. This does not mean everything that I tried was a success but having the right attitude going in gave me the best chance to succeed.

It has been 18 years since I took that class and to this day I give Mr. H. a call or send an e-mail whenever I need an attitude adjustment. Approach everything you do with a positive attitude and you will be amazed with the results.
