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? (Installment #10)

(If this is your first time on this site, please begin with "Are You Prepared For Success [Introduction.])


      • PASSION
      • PLEASURE

"Pleasure", the second leg of the "Empowerment Triad," is the fuel that feeds the engine of passion. If the process was not pleasurable, the chances of obtaining the desired results would be significantly diminished.

Though sages may pour out their Wisdom's treasure,

There is no stronger moralist than Pleasure.

-Lord Byron

This fuel that feeds the passion is a powerful assortment of positive messages contained in rhyming poems; fed by passionate self-talk.

You may ask, "Why rhyming poems?"

It was a motivational, rhyming, poem from an anonymous author that I read years ago which actually gave birth to the idea for this process. The poem is called "It's All In The State Of Mind." The message was very powerful and the poem was fun to read and easy to remember so the rhymes stayed with me (i.e. the positive, uplifting, success oriented, self-affirming messages within these rhymes stayed with me.) I found myself repeating them aloud with increasing passion. They got into my soul and began to change the way I thought about things, the way I felt about myself and the way I viewed the world. I understood its message immediately. However, the more I read it aloud and with passion, the more it stirred an emotional cord deep within me. I knew from the very first time that I read this poem, that there was something wrong with how I viewed life and that I had the power to change that view.

Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.

-T.S. Elliot the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal--which the reader recognizes as his own.

-Salvatore Quasimodo

You have the power to change your view of life, by changing your attitudes.

He is most powerful who has power over himself.

-Philip Massinger

For most people, the reading of rhyming poetry is pleasurable, especially when it is read with passion. It is easy to be passionate about something that is pleasurable. The same is true in reverse; when you do something with passion, the experience is more pleasurable and makes a deeper, lasting impression. Reading these poems aloud with passion will have a dramatic effect on your attitudes.

Poetry should surprise by a fine excess, and not by singularity; it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.

-John Keats

Rhyming Poetry has a way of transmitting a message better than most other ways of expression. It seems to stay with you longer and penetrates deeper. It is said that "poetry is for the soul." As was indicated earlier, that's how the idea for this program was born. A poem expressing a truth I had not realized before, worked its way inside of me and started a process of change. The way this poem's positive message made me feel brought me to the realization that I previously had the wrong mind-set to achieve success. No matter how hard I tried success was very illusive and seemed just out of my reach.

Poetry is the first style of literature we experience as children - Pattern books, then rhymes! (Dr. Suess is still wildly successful!) Maybe that is why poetry is comfortable and comforting to read.

The messages contained within the rhymes that follow in the process can counteract and replace the negative messages that you may have been programmed with, if the process is repeated regularly.

You will need to stay with the program for the changes to become permanent. The more these rhymes are repeated the better the probability of your achieving and maintaining your desired success. Think of current knowledge that you have and are able to apply at will. (The multiplication table would be an example of this.) Now think back to when you first learned it. It would be safe to say that you had to repeat it to yourself many times before it became knowledge. You would have to continuously review it to maintain it as knowledge.
