"Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around"

Successful triumphant people are positive people.  Negative people, people who put others down, people who say, “I can’t do it, people who complain, and people who say, “It’s too much work”, or people who say that a task is too hard, are losers.

Being positive means that you strongly believe that everything that happens to you is designed to benefit you in some way.  Positive people look for the lessons in every experience, whether the experience is good or bad.  A positive person believes, as author Napoleon Hill has said, “Every negative event contains within it the seed of an equal or greater belief.”  You can be certain that problems, challenges, and difficulties will come your way and you cannot stop them from coming your way.  What you can do is prevent troublesome times from gobbling you up by guarding your mind against negativity and by being optimistic.  Refuse to entertain negative thoughts.  Refuse to worry.  Refuse to doubt.  Focus on the prize that lies ahead and do not allow yourself to become trapped by negative, dead end thinking.

There are three basic mental laws that you can apply to your life that will enable you to think more positively.  These three laws will enable you to derive meaning from life and, when you apply them, they will empower you to rapidly succeed.


Whatever you confidently expect is an accurate prediction of your future.  You don’t always get what you want out of life, but you do get what you expect.  Your expectations are forecasts that tell you how the conditions in your life are going to be because your mind will move toward what you expect.  This is why it is important for you to vigorously ignore the negative expectations others may have of you.


You attract people and circumstances into your life that are in agreement with your most important thoughts, beliefs, and goals.  You will discover as you work toward your goal of building a better life for yourself, that the law of attraction will not only draw positive results toward you, but also reject negative, harmful people and situations.


Whatever you strongly believe, with confidence, will become your reality.  Norman Vincent Peale, the author of The Power of Positive Thinking said, “When you learn to believe, then that which has seemingly been impossible  moves into the arena of the possible.  Every great thing at last becomes for you a possibility.”
