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 #14)

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

At this point you, hopefully, realize how important positive attitudes are. You may even be saying to yourself "If that's all it takes, I'll start thinking positive thoughts right now." I wish it was that easy. If it was that easy, why are you still searching?

A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

-George Bernard Shaw

The positive attitudes have to be born and nurtured in the deepest recesses of your mind, of your entire the same place that your emotions come from. Remember, when we discussed the dark place within us that is filled with demons and monsters... well, at the successful completion of this program, you will be able to go back there and see that what you were scared of was nothing but half-truths and lies. In fact, it is this same place, that was once filled with demons and monsters, that you will now fill with soaring eagles, courageous lions, confidence and self-belief.

It is virtually impossible for negative and positive emotions to occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate both your conscious and your subconscious. It is your responsibility to make sure that you use the repetition aspect of this program to insure that the positive messages and emotions dominate your mind. With the constant repetition of these rhyming poems fed by passion, eventually, positive feelings will dominate your mind so completely that the negatives feelings from your past cannot re-enter.

There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.

-Aldoux Husley

He who conquers others is strong;

He who conquers himself is mighty.


You will be able to take responsibility for your actions and thus, own your successes. If you stumble (formerly known as fail) along the way, you will know to take responsibility for it, learn from it, and quickly move on to success.

Failure is success if we learn from it.

-Malcomb S. Forbes

Don't hurry through The Process. Take your time; enjoy it; savor it; engage it with your whole being. The poems are a compilation of great motivational rhymes written by some of the masters of motivation and insight (some slightly altered to fit the profile of this process), as well as numerous original rhymes, written specifically for The Process. The rhymes that I have altered and created are by no means the end all. I strongly encourage you to create your own. The creative process has far greater power than reading someone else’s work. After you have read the rhymes in Section (II), and even during the reading, I, again, encourage you to create your own. By know you must have a pretty good understanding of what the differences are between positive and negative messages. The goal and the difference between Section (II) and Section (III) is OWNERSHIP. Again, you have to own the attitude; not borrow them, not taking them out and admiring them, not even leasing them, but OWNING them.

Remember, I am dedicated to the Pursuit, Capture, Care and Feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. Once you have read my final installment, it’s not over. If you take it seriously and have ownership of a PMA (positive mental attitude) you will have completed the pursuit and capture aspects. You then enter the Care & Feeding stage. I will have much more to say about this at the end of the process.

Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.

-Émile Coué

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

-Francis Bacon

Have faith. Faith can be the strongest and most productive of the emotions. When reading these rhymes, know that they will counteract the negative attitudes that may be controlling your life. Have total faith that you will be able to eliminate the negative feeling that you have about yourself. Show it and feel it in your readings. The faith that you need will become stronger each time you read the rhymes. Using all three legs of the "Empowerment Triad," passion, pleasure and repetition, is what will ensure that this program will work for you, and in the least amount of time. It's up to you! I make no guarantees, because I can't be there with you to ensure that you follow the procedure. You will get out of it only what you are willing to put into it.

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.

-Winston Churchill

Faith is the strongest and most productive of the emotions.

-Napoleon Hill

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.

-Vincent T. Lombardi

The next installment will contain the first of the poems (both the male and the female versions. Have faith. It will work if you want it to. It's time to recognize, understand and take control of your life. It's time to let go of the past. It's time to cleanse yourself. It's time to soar like an eagle and "Live your dreams."

No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.

-William Blake

Do it trembling if you must, but do it!

-Emmet Fox

Congratulations, you have completed Section I of "The Process." I strongly recommend that you go back and re-read all 14 installments before moving on to Section II. It will probably be a few days or so before I begin posting Section II. This will give you time to re-read.

The Process "Are You Prepared For Success?" - Index

CURRENT AS OF 07/21/08

The Empowerment Process:
This process is currently in the process of being posted in installments. For those of you who are wondering if this has any religious does not. This process is all about casting off the role of "victim" and taking on the role of "controller"; taking total control of your own life. To accomplish this I use a combination of "Passion," Repetition", and "Pleasure."

Each installment is linked to the next. Where applicable I duplicate installments into a "male version" and a "female version." Why I do this will become abundantly clear when you get to "Section III."

The Empowerment Process
is divided into three Sections:

  • "Section I" - Preparation & Explanation
  • "Section II" - Understanding & Acceptance
  • "Section III" - Ownership & Becoming

Side Notes:


Section I - Explanation & Preparation:

Section II - Understanding & Acceptance:

Section III - Ownership & Becoming:
