To Be Successful You Must
Have a Positive Mental Attitude
Why is this so important? Because your mental thinking, your thoughts are connected directly to the Creator of all things. This Creator will do your bidding and if you have a negative mental attitude, then you will receive negative results. This sounds like common sense to me. There’s an old computer saying that goes, “Garbage in garbage out.” Well your mind is the most powerful and most sophisticated computer in the universe. Why would you think it would give you anything other than what you put into it? We are in the information age; technology is doubling every ten years. Five hundred years ago, the average person had an excuse. Today we see it all around us. Use your Subconscious Mind or you will be no better off then the peons of yesteryear.
One’s place in life is largely determined by one’s mental attitude.
Read that sentence over and over, until it sinks in. Don’t buy the get rich quick schemes of the con artist. There are no quick short cuts or once in a lifetime deals. I said it before and I’ll say it again, “That once in a lifetime opportunity comes along every fourteen minutes.” If you’re not prepared for it, it will go right by you disguised as a problem. A positive mental attitude wins financial success. This is a law. There are no maybes or lucky streaks or being in the right place at the right time. You must prepare for success. It starts with your mental attitude. Positive means confident expectation, self-confidence, optimism, initiative, courage, energy, and expectation of wealth, health, and happiness. Sounds easy doesn’t it, yet you are probably thinking negatively seventy-five percent of the time.
It’s human nature; we live in a negative world. Count how many times someone says something negative in your presence. Watch Everybody Loves Raymond on the TV and count all the negative situations and statements. This is a top rated TV show reaching millions of people each week. Poor Robert. This character thinks negatively ninety-nine percent of the time. Now it’s just a TV show I know, but that message is being fed to our Subconscious Mind as, “This is a normal way to live.” We need a makeover. We need to understand that it is not talent, education, or your job that will determine your success, but your mental attitude that wins success. Here’s the good news. You have complete control of what you put into your Subconscious Mind!
