The Power of Positive Thinking
I know this is silly "why if I think I should be rich don't I then become rich" stuff, but I actually kind of believe in the power of your attitude. My high school football coach always talked about "PMA," or positive mental attitude. If you are positive and upbeat, better things will happen to you than if you are sour and miserable. We really do help create ourselves every day. Be positive, you will be happier and live longer.
This really is true. The hardest thing to overcome sometimes is your own refusal to follow through and do what you need to do. If you can get past that self-set roadblock, you may be surprised at the good things that happen.
