    A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.
    "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." Abraham Lincoln
  • 22. The Power of Positive Thinking
    Always use only positive words while thinking and while talking. Use words such as, 'I can', 'I am able', 'it is possible', 'it can be done', etc.
    Allow into your awareness only feelings of happiness, strength and success.
    Try to disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to think such thoughts, and substitute them with constructive happy thoughts.
    In your conversation use words that evoke feelings and mental images of strength, happiness and success.
    Before starting with any plan or action, visualize clearly in your mind its successful outcome.
    Read at least one page of inspiring book every day.
    Watch movies that make you feel happy.
    Minimize the time you listen to the news and read the papers.
    Associate yourself with people who think positively.
    Walk, swim or engage in some other physical activity. This helps to develop a more positive attitude.

  • 48. A story to end on
    A young man once approached J.P. Morgan with a proposition: “Sir, I hold in my hand a guaranteed formula for success, which I will gladly sell to you for $25,000.”
    Always curious, J.P. Morgan replied, “I do not know what is in the envelope, however, if you show me and I like it, I give you my word as a gentleman that I will pay you what you ask.”
    The man agreed, handing J.P. Morgan the envelope.
    When J.P. Morgan examined the note, he reached for his checkbook and paid the man the agreed-upon sum of $25,000. In one of his presentations, Tom Peters revealed the advice that was on that piece of paper:
