The success or failure is the difference is PMA and NMA. PMA is a positive mental attitude will produce and maintain success. We ask questions to enlighten and motivate. How do I generate new ideas? Do I know enough about my business? What do I think about? We strive to work on the areas that are our shortfalling and build muscle. I may not be the best public speaker, however, I can learn and practice. I check out Toastmasters and speak more each day. I can translate my visions into realities. I would like to create a workbook that can help women over 50 see it is possible to create a wealthy life. My why is now bigger than my initial reason for writing a book to share my story and leave a message for my family.
NMA is a negative attitude will induce and guarantee failure. I am too afraid to write. No one will find my story interesting. Why write a book for women over 50 and talk about finances? It is too late for them. The thoughts and beliefs can doom us even before we begin.
Choosing PMA is enduring and uplifting and provides a framework that we can do this. No one determines what the job will last forever. The economy might change and is changing as I write. Each of us has the ability to control our attitude. We can choose to change it anytime we want. To have a winning or wealthy mindset, we can change to thoughts. Walk, talk and act in a positive manner. Exhale the negative and inhale the positive.
Here is a recipe from a Victory of Life
I will plant 5 rows of P’s: Presence, promptness, preparation, perseverance, and purity.
I will plant three rows of Squash: squash gossip, squash indifference, and squash unjust criticism.
I will plant 5 rows of Lettuce: let us be faithful, let us be unselfish and loyal, let us obey the rules, let us be true to our obligations and let us love one another.
Must have turnips. Turn up for meetings, Turn up with a smile, Turn up with new ideas and Turn up with determination to make something good and worthwhile.
Happy investing and gardening in your life
