Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Insallment #1)

If this is your first time on this site, please go to "Are You Prepared For Success? (Introduction)

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.”

-Napoleon Hill

“Just Do It.”


Never give in, Never, Never, Never, Never.”

-Sir Winston Churchill

Above are some of the more famous success based quotes prevalent in society today. They represent a few of the basic attitudes (winning attitudes) that need to become part of us (second nature) in order for true success to be attained. Most people, deep down, know this to be true. Winning, positive attitudes go hand-in-hand with success. However, - just knowing that positive attitudes are essential to success - will not guarantee success. Knowing, understanding and owning winning, positive attitudes (making them ours - as if we actually gave birth to them) is what's essential to attaining lasting success.

Losers visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.

-Dr. Rob Gilbert

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.

-William James

We are constantly being exposed to quotes, clichés and sayings that reflect differing attitudes, some of them winning attitudes. Unfortunately we are also exposed to quotes with no value, or worse with negative value, that reflect losing attitudes. There are no "cliché monitors" in life. This is a function that we all have to develop internally.

"Opportunity only knocks once." This is a prime example of a totally and absolutely false message that is contained within a cliché that a lot of us take as truth. The implication of this statement is if we don't recognize an opportunity when it appears, we will never have another chance at opportunity. This is a loser's attitude. If we have winning attitudes, positive attitudes, we will make our own opportunities. We will be able to create opportunities out of most all situations, including miss-fortune. Opportunities can be disguised as obstacles, problems or just every day routines that we never really looked too closely at before. With the right frame of mind (attitude), opportunities will reveal themselves to us, no matter how they may be disguised.

Opportunity.....Often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.

-Napoleon Hill

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

-Albert Einstein

How, then, are we to separate the winning attitudes from the losing attitudes? When we are able to separate them, how do we understand, take ownership of, and implement the positive winning attitudes that are reflected by these positive quotes?

It is better to never have tried anything than to have tried something and failed.

-motto of jerks, weenies and losers everywhere

Also, why is it that only a small percentage of people actually achieve success when we are constantly exposed to these positive, motivating and inspirational messages carried within these quotes?

There have been thousands of How To Succeed Books and biographies of successful people written over the years. We can find these books all the libraries, book stores and on the Internet. They all have their own formulas for attaining ultimate success, financial independence, becoming our own boss and living our dreams! These books are very stimulating and easily fuel our fires of desire. For most of us, these books paint a picture of the other side; of what others have attained, of what we don't have, of what we want but feel that we can never have. Why do we feel that we can never attain success, that it is out of our reach?

You seem to have a good attitude about things... :-)

Re: self-help books, I think that they don't make any real difference in society because for the most part, they are full of "quick-fixes." If a person really wants to make change in her life, then she should dedicate her whole life to positive thinking... This is a difficult thing to do, and not something will happen without real effort.

You have nailed it. What makes the whole precess so great is that you are gaining power all along the way and that it so liberating.

Nice blog, very inspirational. Will take some of the positive quotes on board. Laughed at some of the cartoons.
Love the Giant dog bit! (relevant to blog or not, it's amazing!)
Thanks for visiting my blog too.

During my major times of turmoil, I followed the "Just Do It" motto. I lived by it. It's how I got on my feet.

You said, "Knowing, understanding and owning winning, positive attitudes" - this is part of my prologue...just finished it today and can't w82 share.

Yes, a winner's attitude is: never give up; never give in.

All in all, very nice. I feel ya. You and I are on the same page here. When I finished my prologue, I realized I found my direction - finally: that I started in a good position, I was a dealt a losing set of cards, but choose to get back up and try, try, try again.

Nice, Mel.
