In one of the Napoleon Hill books, possibly the Law of Success, there is a formula he asks you to copy and write down. I have this on the wall in my house, in the kitchen and my daughter has a copy in her bedroom.
“I believe my mind is my own.
I believe I can take possession of my own mind,
I believe I can direct and own my emotions, moods, intellect, tendencies, attitudes and habits with the intention of developing a positive mental attitude.
I will develop a Positive Mental Attitude.“
On typing this, I’m reflecting on how this reads almost as a prayer, and what is a prayer but a statement of focus and faith?
PMA is taking control of your own mindset and directing towards your own focussed intention. It is not a wish.
PMA is taking decisive actions towards plans. taking advantage of opportunities as they come up. It is taking mistakes and using thme as lessons. Turning obstacles into opportunities to learn. Learning every day.
