10 Steps To A Positive Mental Attitude

Since thoughts and feelings have a magnetic pull that attract like unto themselves out of the quantum field, the benefits of developing and maintaining a PMA are many.

In fact, stripped of all non-essentials, life itself boils down to two major divisions: good and bad, positive and negative, heaven and hell.

Logically, it makes sense that any activity undertaken with a PMA will go a lot better than with a NMA, yet still most people struggle. And that’s because of negative past conditioning that became habit.

But, like everything else in life, developing a PMA is learnable. Then through frequent use it becomes a habit.

Here’s 10 Steps to a PMA.

1.Take Control Of Your Own Mind.

Realize that you have the power to choose which thoughts you entertain and dwell upon. If you’re in the habit of thinking negatively then decide today to change it. When a negative thought enters your mind shake it off, and say, “change it.” Then focus on the good in every situation.

2. Stay Determined To Focus Your Mind Only On What You Want.

It’s the basics of the law of attraction that your dominant thoughts usher in related feelings. Then those thoughts and feelings attract more of the same into your life. Therefore, when you focus on what you don’t want – you only get more of it. So, train your mind to focus only on what you want.

3. Flush Negative Thoughts From Your Mind By Monitoring Your Feelings.

Since your thoughts determine your feelings, the best way to monitor your thoughts is to be aware of how you’re feeling. When you find yourself feeling discouraged, depressed, frustrated, or unhappy, laugh at yourself for letting negative thoughts enter your mind – then flush them into the void.

4. Set Goals.

Decide exactly what it is that you want to be, do, and have. Then put it in writing. The true power of goals lies in the fact that they get you to focus on what you want – not on what you don’t want.

5. Meditate And Visualize.

Now that you’ve defined what it is that you want, dream about it frequently. Relax deeply, especially upon awakening and before falling asleep. Then in your mind’s eye see your goals, and feel them as though they have already come true.

6. Decide To Be Happy.

The best way I’ve found to be happy is simple – ask yourself what you have to be happy about and grateful for. Go for a brisk walk, and come up with long lists of answers for both questions. By the end of your walk, you’ll be on top of the world. Of course, when you’re happy, you’ll also make others happy.

7. Learn To Forgive And Be Tolerant.

We’re all only human. Therefore, we’ve all done stupid and mean things, and we’ve all made mistakes. When you can forgive yourself and others, the wounds heal. When your tolerant with yourself and others, you are more relaxed. Then in your wisdom, you manifest positive things.

8. Use Positive Affirmations.

W. Clement Stone, who along with Napoleon Hill, co-wrote my favorite self-help book Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude {<Free Copy} was well known for saying, “I feel healthy! I feel happy! I feel terrific!” Repeated affirmations tap into the power of your subconscious mind, making the affirmation become your reality. It’s no surprise that Stone lived to be 100 years old.

9. “Assume A Virtue If You Have It Not.”*

It’s the basics of the law of assumption that when you act enthusiastically, for example, you then become enthusiastic. So, when you start to act as though you are happy – you then become happy. Stand tall, breath deeply, and put a smile on your face, then ask yourself what you have to be happy about.

10. Use The Power Of Prayer.

Even if you don’t believe in a God of some sort, you can still pray to your subconscious mind. Praying is incredibly powerful when done with the faith and gratitude that your prayer has already been answered. When done properly, you are sure to get what you pray for, or something even better. Of that you can be …positive.

Have a great day, – Herb.

How To Overcome Fear

“Fear Is The Mind-Killer”*

Deep within you whispers a desire to accomplish something great. Your dreams beckon, and your heart aches for its expression, but then the quarrel within starts.

Fear of failure rears its ugly head, or perhaps it’s fear of success, ridicule, or one of the others – you don’t even know. But next thing you do know, before you even get to work on making your dreams come true, you’ve already given up.

Therein lies the reason that most people die with their music still in them. The desire that calls to them from within is like an Angel of God telling them what their purpose for being here is, yet instead they listen and give in to their fears.

“Fear Is The Great Paralyzer”*

To kill the fear thought that challenges your desire, you must face it courageously by taking action despite your fear.

You must learn how to believe that you can do a thing, before you can do it. Develop the tremendous forces of faith and courage to help insure that your desire sees the light of day.

Because the Infinite Intelligence of the Universal Mind is just and kind, the burning desire of your longing to do a thing is proof that you can do it, for God never mocks us.

“Courage Is Resistance To Fear, Mastery Of Fear, Not Absence Of Fear”*

You must breath life into your dreams of a better life that haunt you. When you wake up and when you go to sleep, seize hold of your imagination and direct it by visualizing your dreams made manifest.

Tap into the treasures of your subconscious mind which is In Tune With The Infinite {<Free Copy} by Ralph Waldo Trine, and creative ideas will just seem to flow through you.

The end is the beginning, therefore harness the powers of the law of assumption by acting as though you are already the type of person that you long to be. Then your subconscious mind will find the ways to make it so.

“Every Action Must Be Prompted By A Motive”*

Define specifically what it is that you want. Then turn the fire of your desire into a blazing inferno by making a list of the reasons why you want it.

Since only 3% of the population put their goals in writing, and those same 3% own more wealth than the other 97% combined, put your major definite purpose down on paper along with the plans for its obtainment.

Then follow through by doing what you plan to do, and you’ll break on through to the other side of fear where success has been waiting for you all along.

“I Learned That Courage Was Not The Absent Of Fear, But The Triumph Over It”*

When we harbor a fear thought, for example the fear of poverty, the fear thought fuses itself into the very texture of our existence, and thus makes us a magnet that attracts even more poverty into our life.

Resolve that you will break through your fears by taking action, and the fear will wither and die. And conversely the courage and momentum from taking action will rise up to the challenge growing stronger still.

Hold on tenaciously to your dreams, to your purpose, to your ideal, and the Universe will help you to achieve what you long for.

Every great achievement was first born in the mind of its creator. Then by chipping away at the stone blow by blow, and day by day, a masterpiece was created.

“Be Ye Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind”*

It might seem like a miracle to the unenlightened, but really it is just an exact success formula that is governed by the laws of mind.

Isn’t it time to stand up and claim your birthright as a remarkable human being? I know that you can do it my friend, so just do it now.

All the best, – Herb.

How To Change The World

One of the best ways to achieve success for yourself is by helping others to succeed. Because everyone who ever reached the peak of success didn’t get to the top alone.

They had lots of help along the way. And when someone lends us a hand, the law of fair play requires that we reciprocate by helping others.

The Law Of Sowing And Reaping

Your efforts to help someone else less fortunate will not only help them, but will give you something that is priceless to your own heart and soul.

One of the richest paradoxes that you could ever experience is to be able to think of someone, and know that you helped them, because in so doing, you enriched your own life beyond measure.

“I’d Love To Change The World”*

When you take a look at all those people around the world who have been evicted from their homes by mother nature, you’ll also see many strangers trying to help them.

I’m not blind to the terrorists who mow down innocent strangers in the streets, or blow up young kids at a concert. But, those fanatics are not the majority.

I’m also extremely grateful for the blessings of being able to live in Canada. And I can only begin to imagine all the hardships that millions of people around the world must face everyday just to survive.

When we choose to give of ourselves, of our time and energy, to the benefit of others, we change the world one helping hand at a time.

“Do Not Conform To This World, But Be Ye Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind”**

Just think how the world would be transformed if we all took the time to help someone else through life. In some way, each of us in turn, would then receive help when we needed it. And there will come a time when we all need help.

Personally, I’ve found that the first step to helping others is by helping myself to improve through self-help books. Because when I get better, I’m better able to help others.

I know that my little blog here won’t change the world, but one day someone that I may never meet or ever even know about, may read something that I wrote that will help them. Then they might share it with another, and so on down the line.

Essentially, doing your best to help others sets in motion a chain reaction that vibrates around the world because when we give each other a hand – we all join hands.

Since I know that there’s a Higher Power to the universe that we are all a part of, I also know that we can always find a way to help others, and in so doing the world will become a better place – one helping hand at a time.

P.S. If you like this post, then please lend me a hand trying to change the world by sharing it. And if you want to become part of the change that you’d like to see in the world then please read The Secret Of The Ages {<Free Copy} by Robert Collier.

Since we may never meet for me to lend you a helping hand, here’s an electric hug.

Vaya con dios, – The Unknown Musician.
