Be Positive

Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are. –Norman Vincent Peale

Your  mental attitude with respect to defeat is a huge factor in determining whether you ride with the tides of fortune on the success side of the River of Life or are swept to the failure side by circumstances of misfortune.

The circumstances which separate failure from success often are so slight that their real cause is overlooked. Often they exist entirely in the mental attitude with which one meets temporary defeat. The person with a positive mental attitude reacts to defeat in a spirit of determination not to accept it. The person with a negative mental attitude reacts to defeat in a spirit of hopeless acceptance.

The person who maintains a positive mental attitude may have anything in life upon which they may set their heart, so long as it does not conflict with the laws of God or the rights of others. They probably will experience many defeats, but will not surrender to defeat. They will use it as a stepping stone to lead to higher and higher levels of achievement.

A positive mental attitude is an essential part of the key which unlocks the door to the solution of all personal problems. It is the magic quality of this key which enables it to attract success as surely as metal is attracted to a magnet.

The whole secret of the formula by which you may turn defeat into an asset lies in your ability to maintain a positive mental attitude despite your defeat.

Have a great day and be positive.
