Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude

Every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit. Greatness comes to those who develop a burning desire to achieve high goals. Success is achieved and maintained by those who try and keep on trying with PMA. To become an expert achiever in any human activity, it takes practice...practice...practice. Man's greatest power lies in the power of prayer.

Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude
Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) vs Negative Mental Attitude (NMA), ultimately you decide which you choose to attract into your life. The difference between achieving your goals and failing to obtain the things you desire the most. This invisible talisman, as described in the book, is a secret that your mind holds. On one side is emblazoned the letters PMA (positive mental attitude) and on the other the letters NMA (negative mental attitude). A positive attitude will naturally attract the good and the beautiful. The negative attitude will rob you of all that makes life worth living. So although most like to feel as though they are victims of circumstance and of the world, they adopt a victim-like mental attitude (NMA) of which the Negative Mental Attitude side of their secret talisman is in control. Imagine the opportunities that one would attract into their life if they only made the switch to the Positive Mental Attitude side of this talisman. The differences that a positive mental attitude can make in your life is only a matter of having the desire to make the switch, and the willpower to continue forward and around the negative mental loops that we all have developed throughout the years.
