Never give up and always look out for any missing pieces that can help you on your path.

Oftentimes, our plans don’t quite come to fruition because one last piece of the puzzle was missing – the crowning glory that would’ve made your project a huge success. People with a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) know that they always need to be on the lookout for this last piece.

Everyone who can see their final goal on the horizon should stop and ask themselves what this last piece might be. If you let a negative attitude creep into your thinking, failure is a sure thing. But if you failed, think about it and be frank with yourself – what more could you have done? And what is that special something that could take your project even further?

The Wright brothers were great at doing precisely this. They succeeded where others had failed because they possessed strong PMAs. Instead of being disheartened when their airplane designs failed, they spotted that missing piece: movable flaps mounted on the plane’s wings! These flaps enabled the pilot to place the wings in various positions and keep the plane steady. This piece would have been forever lost had the brothers had an NMA (Negative Mental Attitude), and their dreams would have never seen the light of day.

When looking for the missing piece, an unconventional approach is sometimes the best approach. When trying to brainstorm new ideas, many of us sit down with a pen and paper and expect ideas to magically descend upon us. Then, when we become distracted, our focus slips and we lose time and potentially great ideas. So why not try an unconventional route and focus your mind completely?

For example, American inventor Dr. Gates used to lock himself in a small, dark, soundproof room so that he could concentrate on a solution to a problem. Only when he had an idea did he switch on the light and jot down a possible solution.

Don’t be afraid of a little opposition.

Remember that a “KITE” of success generally rises against the wind of adversity – not with it.

There are no limitations to the mind, except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.

You may benefit, by passing onto your subconscious mind, any desire which you wish translated into it’s physical or monetary equivalent, in a state of expectancy or BELIEF that the transmutation will actually take place. Your BELIEF or FAITH is the element, which determines the action of your subconscious mind. 

There is nothing to hinder you from deceiving your subconscious mind. To make this deceit more effective and realistic, conduct yourself as you would, if you were ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MATERIAL THING WHICH YOU ARE DEMANDING, when you call upon your subconscious mind. 

The subconscious mind will transmute into it’s physical equivalent, by the most direct and practical media available, any order which is given to it, in a state of BELIEF or FAITH that the order will be carried out.

If the thing you wish to do is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it. Put your dream across and never mind what “they” say if you meet with temporary defeat, for “they,” perhaps do not know that EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALENT SUCCESS.

Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a “BURNING DESIRE TO WIN” essential to success.
