Currently Reading…. ‘Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude’

Napoleon Hill is one of my favorite authors! He has written several best-sellers, including “Think and Grow Rich” and “The Law of Success.”

“Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude” sets forth the unlimited, and for many, the untapped powers of the mind. It gives practical insight into using the mind to set and reach life’s goals. It presents self-motivators, ways to maintain a cheerful attitude, and discusses many other principles and examples of the benefits of creating and using a positive mental attitude.

How do we attain success through a positive mental attitude? What does success through a positive mental attitude really mean?

It’s all about the law of attraction. The “get what you give” dynamics of life. What you put out into the world is what you get back from it. You are who you attract at any given moment. A positive attitude will naturally attract the good and the beautiful. The negative attitude will rob you of all that makes life worth living. Your success, health, wealth, and happiness depend on how you make up your mind.

With that being said, why is it any more difficult to achieve success through a positive mental attitude? It takes discipline and conditioning. It is amazing how many of us go through life and live day by day creating, speaking, and thinking negative affirmations all day long to ourselves. This causes our ill emotional and mental states and, in turn, counteracts success through positive mental attitude with an on-going dialogue of negative self-talk.

The way you speak to yourself molds your perception and therefore, creation of life. How you ask a question can determine the answer. The brain is an amazing machine. When you ask it a question, it automatically searches for an answer. For example, if you were to ask, “Why did this happen to me?” you will most likely get a number of negative answers generated, as opposed to, “What can I do now to fix this?” which will generate possible solutions and take your life in a completely different direction.

It’s important to learn to verbalize positive words and not the negative. We punish ourselves when we make mistakes, but do not reward ourselves for our successes. You must always have a picture of your future or else you will replay your past. Your subconscious is something that will believe what you tell it.  Your subconscious will continue to work, even while you are asleep.

Ultimately, we are going to have to learn to master the subconscious by reprogramming ourselves to create success through a positive mental attitude. The majority of people are being programmed according to other people’s motives and agendas, or the mere seemingly accidental circumstances around them. Isn’t it about time we decided to take the reigns and program ourselves according to our own agendas? Mold ourselves and our lives by our own design? The Bible says that God “wants us to live in abundance, until it overflows.” – John 10:10

I especially love this book because it ties God into it and quotes many scriptures from the Bible, unlike other self-help books that don’t. For example, “The Secret.” That has to be one of the best books I have ever read, but I felt sort of turned away from it because it never once mentioned God, the Bible, any of the ten commandments… nothing! What really tripped me out was that the words universal law would be capitalized, like so – Universal Law or just plain Law. I also noticed that for every single place in the book that the word Law was capitalized, if you replaced it with the word God, it made all the more sense and sounded so much better! This is one of the main reasons why I love Napoleon Hill because he has a way of tying in God, biblical and spiritual truths.

“Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude” is definitely a must-read, so go get your copy today!

“What you think, so you will become.” – Napoleon Hill
