Positive Mental Attitude

There are three essential ingredients I learned to program into myself for positive mental attitude and continued success.  The first and most important is implementing inspiration into action.  Inspiration into action means executing our self-motivation or the inner urge that determines choice which incites us to action.  The second essential element is knowledge.  We’ve all heard that knowledge is power and the process of obtaining an education is a life long venture.  The more we know, the more we realize we need to know.  Knowledge is something that can be acquired from books, from the experience of others, and those that are willing to mentor us.  The third element is know-how or “common-sense”.  Know-how gets things done when other people are wondering if it can be done.  How do we get it?  We don’t get it; we accumulate it by doing, by action, by experience.  It is through knowing how to apply our obtained knowledge that there is real power.  It is through this process that knowledge grows and becomes wisdom.  This is the power of perspective!
