These are quotes I got after reading Success with Positive Mental Attitude
“Have a definiteness of purpose.”
To get a clearly defined goal is a step forward. Hill and Stone put it as definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. And I couldn’t agree with them more on this. What I have realized is that,the world will change whether or not you choose to change it. God has given you the power to change it so you can control the direction it goes if you really want to, but the most important thing is to get your goal defined. If you don't know where you are going,anywhere can be your destination.
If you know where you are going,it helps you set your priorities right,you are able to avoid detractors on the way and move onto your destination.
“If a man is right,his world would be right”
If you thoughts are clean and pure definitely your actions will be clean and pure,if your thoughts are impure and unclean, habouring envy,jealousy and the likes,you are going to reap same. Again if you are unhappy with your world,you have to begin to change yourself and others will follow suit,that is to say,if you are able to change yourself to a state of happiness,your world will certainly be a happy world. Because at the end of the day,we are what we think.
“Every adversity has a seed of equivalent or greater benefit for those have PMA”.
Sometimes, the things that seem to be challenges and barriers turn out to be opportunities in disguise. All we need to do is to engage the mind in thinking to discover these opportunities and we will be happy we even encountered such challenges.
“Man's greatest power lies in prayer”.
Constant communication with the divine being is a powerful tool. We are just carnal and we don’t even know what will happen in the next minute, but the superior being knows the end from the beginning. He is in absolute control over the entire universe,So if you want to know the future,you ask him,if you want the road to be clear,you tell him,if you want to succeed you ask for it from Him and the only way you can do that is through communicating with Him in prayer. Therefore,there is no doubt that prayer is man's greatest tool or weapon.
“If you know what you want,you can find a way to get it”.
This quote reminds me of a proverb in my language which literally means”where there is a will,there is always a way” If you know what you are really looking for in a newspaper or magazine,no matter the number of pages,once you have seen that particular thing in the contents,you will definitely thumb through the pages and get it. In other words , if you know what you want it is very difficult to be distracted and you wont stop at anything till you get it,that is why its so crucial to get a definite purpose in life..
“It takes an idea,followed by action to turn failure into success”.
Having an idea is a very good thing because I believe a single idea can change the world,but it is not enough to just get an idea. It is one thing to have or get an idea and it is totally another thing to act on it. So many failures got ideas similar to that of the successful ones,but here the difference we may attribute to action. The successful acted upon their ideas and turned their failures into success. Its not magic,it takes the will power and positive mental attitude.
