The human mind is an extremely powerful tool. There are many times where I think that if we get negative thoughts about the impossibility of a situation, then we are going to struggle. However, if we have a little bit of confidence, we are able to move forward and accomplish some great things. The fact that we can't do many things is more of a state of mind, than any actual reality. Perception is everything.

A small truth which can make our Life 100% successful.... If A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, D = 4, ... W = 23, X = 24, Y = 25, and Z = 26. Then Hard work makes 98% H = 8 A = 1 R = 18 D = 4 W = 23 O = 15 R = 18 K = 11 Knowledge Makes 96% K = 11 N = 14 O = 15 W = 23 L = 12 E = 5 D = 4 G = 7 E = 5 Love makes 54% L = 12 O = 15 V = 22 E = 5 Luck makes 47% L = 12 U = 21 C = 3 K = 11 So you can see none of them makes 100%. Then what makes 100%? Money? ..... NO! --- Leadership?.....NO! Every problem has a solution, only if we could change our "ATTITUDE". It is our ATTITUDE towards Life and work that makes our life 100% Successful... A = 1 T = 20 T = 20 I = 9 T = 20 U = 21 D = 4 E = 5 So, attitude makes 100% I wish you become successful through your positive attitude.

That is an interesting perspective on the situation. Attitude is everything. A good attitude is likely to lead to good results. A negative attitude will lead to negative results. A mixed attitude will lead to mixed results and it does tend to vary from day to day, but we do set out to have that positive attitude. Thanks for responding, appreciated, have a nice day.

I have to have a positive attitude and confidence to say yes to this discussion! i agree what we think is actually what is happening in our lives... Negative attracts negative things... If we think positive we react and move positively too... Positive thinking is like an inspiration... like a goal to reach... without it we lose drive or interest to move on...

Very true, positivity will lead to positive. Negativity on the other hand, will already lead to us to be defeated right in our minds. Therefore, we are going to just fall rather flat on faces. Therefore, we are going to lead to just defeating ourselves right from the get go. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

Yes i agree with you megamatt. The human mind is really that powerful. You just need to combine it with the right attitude plus a positive outlook in life, everything will be possible. Believe in yourself and you can achieve the goal you want to reach and accomplish the things you want to be succesful in life.

Attitude is really everything. We need that great attitude to a positive outlook on life. That is really going to be a lot of success in life. I do agree that even if everyone else tells you differently, you need to be believe in yourself. Otherwise, life will not be as grand as you thought. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

Indeed the human mind is an amazing thing. It is rather amazing how it can really control a lot of what we do. If it can be focused to be rather positive. Confidence can grow, we can accomplish great things and our life will be far more enriched than we could ever hope. Therefore, it is a good thing to say the least. Thanks for responding. Its appreciated. Have a nice day.

The man's brain consists two parts - consciousness and subconsciousness. With our consciousness we can deside what is a true and what is a false. And once we made the desision we take it to our subconsciousness. Our subconsciousness cannot think, it takes as a truth what consciousness tells. So, when you think you are dumb - then this is the truth you've decided to think about yourself and you get it to subconsciousness. The subconsciousness make the things the way you thik of and when you are on some sitoations you would look like dumb to others becouse - that is what you were tald to your subconsciousness to do for you. Comprende!

Some good points that I agree with. If you believe something, it will happen. It is hard to really overcome that belief but to say that it is impossible would really be a lot negative to say the very least. Therefore, we need to try and take advantage of the power of the mind, to lead to a great deal of positive thought. Thanks for responding, appreciated, have a nice day.

You're right about that. That's the main concept of The Law of Attraction. Whatever your mind can conceive, your body can achieve. Plus, thinking negatively entitles you emotional distress most of the time.

Negative thinking does really stress me out. It really just proves that nothing I do matters. So starting out with negative thinking does really does lead to more negative thinking. Therefore, that just leads to the proof of the power of your mind. It is going to really lead you to another high height. Thanks for responding. Its appreciated. Have a nice day.

I agree with you Matt. If you put your mind into it there's always a possibility that it will happen. If not, of course it won't. Perception has and always been the key to make thing's possible.

Perception is an extremely strong thing to be certain. What we think and what we believe are things that are going to strengthen are resolve and make sure we accomplish a great deal. We are going to be motivated through a great attitude and an attitude that is not so great, it will not lead to anything that is great. Thanks for responding, appreciated, have a nice day.

Believing is always the start to something and then working it out to make it happen. One cannot mostly achieve something without thinking he can no matter what he do. Sometimes it's just all in our mind that hinders us because we fear of the unforeseen to come. Our mindset towards things must be changed positively. When we think we can then we can, and if we think we can't then the tendency is for us to quit thus making us incapable to make it happen.

Thinking that we can't is a defeating attitude. If we already think that we can't do something, than it is going to likely lead to us not being able to do something. There are a lot of times where the greatest and most powerful victories have come through positive thinking. Thanks for the response, appreciated, have a nice day.

I completely agree with you. Everything that happens to us hiding in our thoughts. We ourselves are strong, if we think positively, then all succeed, and of course, if we think bad thoughts, they also come true. Also, I'm trying to think positive and try to make positive all around me. Have a nice day

It is really important to keep a positive mind set at all times to really be sure. We are going to make a lot of positive results if we think that we are going to. We can't think we're going to fail, because what's the point in even bothering if we think that? Therefore, we are going to need to be positive. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

I totally agree with you my friend. Power of positive thinking can never be undermined by any person. The living example is in front of us to see and believe in the way of American President Barack Obama. I fever he would have though for a minute that he can never be the president because of his decent or being a colored person then he would have definitely lacked the confidence but he was a man who believed in himself and his abilities and eventually succeeded to bring a huge change in the way people think. So its surely worth trying that you never think negative just believe in what you do and then the result will be there to see...I follow it all the time. Try it everyone....it sure won't be a loss

Yeah say what you want about President Obama, but he would not have gotten even close to running for president, if he had been defeated by all of the naysayers. He believed that he could win, despite a colored person never winning before. In many ways, there is a first time for everything. That is really another fact of a positive attitude is going to bring you pretty far. Just because something has never been done, does not mean it cannot be done. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

Truly, the power of thoughts is way greater than anything else in the world. Positivity is the key to having your day make a huge turnaround from being bad to being great. It's all about the attitude, determination and the focus to think straight in times of trials and be able to emerge a better individual no matter what obstacles you face. Putting your mind into something makes the possibility of it all as reachable as it can get. The power of the mind as well as the power of your words can always change something negative to something positive.

The right attitude and determination are really two things that go hand and hand. It really does drive us to a productive and quite useful day. Therefore, the power of positive thinking and being determined to get something done is great. If we are negative, then we have been defeated mentally. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

Many have said the human mind is the most powerful muscle in the human mind. That is really something that I find myself agreeing with. It can really give us a lot of power from the mind and it can make or break a lot of what we are going to do. We just need to believe and anything can be possible. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.

If I think I can do it -- half work is done! If I think I am not going to make it --- there are high probability that I won't. Our success and failures are due to our own thinking. Positive thinking and right attitude makes the things possible. Right attitude is the essential ingredient for success in our endeavors. We can do anything a man can do. If we can't it simply means we lack self-confidence. How we see a problem - for some the glass is half empty for other it is half filled. Attitude is very powerful and makes anything possible. Positive thinking and positive attitude is the first thing that we must develop in ourselves in order to become successful.

Half of the battle is actually believing. Half of the battle is having the right attitude. Because we are likely going to have the proper mindset to succeed. It is rather intriguing that a lot of the time when we don't think we are going to succeed, we are not going to succeed. Then when we have the proper mindset and the positivity, then it goes a long way. I find that the glass is half full a lot of the time, because there is always something in the glass. Therefore, it is going to help push me forward. To really inspire me to the highest heights of success. Therefore, a positive mindset is really great. Thanks for responding. It is appreciated. Have a nice day.
