Today’s short post comes courtesy of The Napoleon Hill Foundation on developing a Positive Mental Attitude.
If you don’t know what you want, don’t say you never had a chance.
The people who complain the loudest about never having an opportunity in life are usually the ones who always have a ready excuse for their failures. Nothing is ever their fault; they are victims of their heritage, their environment, insufficient education, or any number of other factors that they perceive as placing them at a disadvantage.
If you look hard enough, you can always find reasons for not attempting something or not sticking with the job to the end.
Successful people, though, are not excuse-makers. They take responsibility for their actions, they set goals, and they assume responsibility for their achievement. Where others see despair, they see hope.
They approach every situation with enthusiasm, confident in the knowledge that nothing is impossible for those who have a Positive Mental Attitude.
