“A Positive Mental Attitude is not developed in a single decision to replace negative thoughts with their positive equivalent.
It is a sustained commitment that requires personal discipline, the same kind of discipline that is required to stay in shape and maintain your physical health.
It is a commitment that must be reinforced daily, or it is soon forgotten and cast upon the scrap heap of good intentions.
When you take charge of your fate and determine that you will live positively in every aspect of your life — physical and mental — you will receive an extra benefit. Positive physical conditioning will reinforce your Positive Mental Attitude, and your positive attitude will help you stay in better physical condition.
It you haven’t the willpower to keep your physical body in repair, you also lack the power of will to maintain a positive mental attitude in other important circumstances that control your life.”
This was the Napoleon Hill Foundation’s Thought for the Day on November 11th 2013. Also, Veteran’s Day. No need what so ever to expand on this, Mr. Hill covered it all quite nicely. If I was to do one thing, it would be to challenge you to find the places in your life where there are good intentions that do not yet have your full 100% commitment. Once you’ve isolated that, train it, strengthen it, reinforce it until you own it. Then you will be free. Take the strength built and forged at Rich Man’s Gym and let it bleed all over the rest of your life.
