Spirit

When you attain a sense of undefeatable-ness, you will always be high-spirited and confident. Spirit is taken out of you when allow yourself to be overwhelmed, nonplussed, and stymied by circumstances and conditions. An important secret of success is to get yourself firmly based in spiritual understanding, in faith and positive thinking. Then nothing, no matter what, can defeat you. You will have attained indomitability.

Contribute

We are continuously building up or breaking down the self. Through the years, every thought, every emotion, every experience contributes to the quality of self. No matter how old or how set we become, self is in the making. Everything contributes to its greatness or littleness, its stagnation or growth. What will your contribution be today?

Change

Experience bears out the thesis that things go wrong because we are wrong. If we resolutely seek to understood where we're wrong and make changes, we are on our way to better things. "Most of the shadows of this life," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, " are caused by standing in our own sunshine." When we get busy changing attitudes that have been casting shadows and making things go wrong, then things start going right. A changed person changes situations and conditions.

Five Rules

Here are five simple and workable rules for over-coming inadequacy attitudes and for learning to believe in yourself:

1. Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of youself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop this picture as fact. Never think of yourself as failing; never doubt the reality of the mental image.
2. Whenever a negative thought concerning your ablility comes to mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.
3. Do not build obstacles in your imagination. Depreciate every so-called obstacle. Minimize them. Difficulties must be studied and efficiently dealt with, but they must be seen only for what they are. They must not be inflated by year thoughts.
4. Do not be awestruck by other people or try to copy them. Nobody can be you as efficiently as you can.
5. Ten times a day repeat these words: "If God be for me, who can be against me?" (see Romans 8:31)

Excitement

Get worked up about your job and you will work your job up. Get fired up about it and you will put fire into it. Any human occupation has excitement in it if you have excitement in you. And how do you find this excitement? A famous French writer answered with these word: " Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a condition of intellectual magnificence to which we must cling as a treasure."

Optimist

I continually advocate that you be a true optimist, rugged mentally, a real believer. No doubt-thinking person can be an optimist, for an optimist is a person who believes in good outcomes even when he can't yet see them. That is also the Bible's definition of faith as "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." So the real believer is a person who believes in better things when there is yet no evidence to confirm his expectation. He is one who believes in his own future even when he cannot see much possibility in it.

Find Happiness

A basic fact about every individual is the craving to be appreciated. One can find happiness by looking for the best in other people, and that will help bring the best out of them. And it also helps when we put the best possible connotation on everyone and everything. Faith in people and a positive attitude can release these tremendous resources that are resident in everyone.
