A Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) is the RIGHT, HONEST, CONSCTRUCTIVE THOUGHT, ACTION, or REACTION to any person, situation, or set of circumstances that does not violate the laws of the right of your fellow man.
PMA allows you to build on hope and overcome the negative attitudes of despair and discouragement. PMA give you the mental power, the feeling, the confidence to actually do anything you make up your mind to do. PMA is commonly referred to as the “I CAN… I WILL” attitude applicable to all challenging circumstances in your life.
You create and maintain a Positive Mental Attitude through your own willpower, based on motives of your own adaptation. To develop PMA: strive to understand and apply the Golden rule… be considerate and sensitive to the reactions of others… be sensitive to your own reactions by controlling your emotional responses to environmental influences… be a good-finder.. believe that any goal can be achieved and.. develop what are understood to be right habits of Thought and Action.
A Positive Mental Attitude is the catalyst necessary for achieving worthwhile success. Achievement is attained through some combination of PMA and Definiteness of Purpose with one or more of the other 16 Success Principles.
