    !! great points.

    Many of these I do regularly. I have developed that mindset.

    Some I haven't thought about lately, and some I've never verbalized.

    Thanks.

      I personally find that point 11 is the one that brings the most positivity out in me and those around me.

      Helping others makes you feel good and obviously helps others, a win win situation.

      A double positive can only lead to more positive!

    Hi.

    From the point of view of financial engineers, broker agents, moneychangers, and banking institution mavens, there is another spectrum of thought, concerning positive thinking.

    The best way to check this information, is to do a little homework and discover the behaviors of heads of banking institutions, insurance institutions, broker agents in boutique and wire houses, and the like.


    Just thought I'd mention this for the purpose of understanding, that there are other
    superseding thought trend behaviors. I say superseding, because the condition effects everyone across the board. Even online entrepreneurs.

    This is to let everyone know, that these principles in effect, align, but circumnavigate those initially presented by the likes of such individuals as 'Napoleon Hill'. They are of a subtle landsape, but they are currently in operation. They have been in the past, are now, and will be in the future, as long as there are 'fractional reserve', 'fiat money', money = debt system combinations.


    This doesn't mean that everybody is a bad guy, but it does mean, that these principles are an underlying essence of behavioral psychologies, that are concerned with, institutional for-profit enterprise.



    This Stuff Has To Do With The Bigger Picture Of
    What Effects Internet Marketing


    1. Learn to the peaceful towards yourself, as you will find, that others think small, unless they demonstrate otherwise. They will generally present less important prescriptions of value.

    2. Condition your mind in the beginning of each day to be focused on the logistics of achieving controlling interest in your given circumstance or effort.

    3. Have a good hearty laugh as you observe the negative mental state of others. Understand that they are generally blinded by celebrity, vanity, dollar signs, media driven fear, scarcity, nonhuman institutions and corporations being given equivalent rights and treated like people, as well as a multitude of insignificant self destructive flamboyant behaviors or unchecked emotions. Know that they are susceptible to suggestion.

    4. Start each day with GRATITUDE, for the adversities, failures, & defeats of others, and benefit from being able to observe what not to do. Know that their issues contain the equivalent seeds of success.

    5. Be thankful for the successful percentage gain return on investment you expect to receive during each day.

    6. Focus on a 'Can Do' attitude. In every situation you can cause some action to give greater benefit, value, wealth, or outcome to the quality of your life. Every circumstance in your life is positive and can pay you dividends if you keep a focused mental attitude.

    7. Remember, your strength grows through the accumulated gains of wealth in your life, and as gain is a winning process of educating others too edify or respect your presence, you will be able to add a better quality of life to yourself, your family, friends, and others that you decide upon.

    8. Express self gratitude as often as you can, and accept it from others.

    9. Whenever confronted by a negative situation, focus on your winning objectives, and let others be negative for you if necessary.

    10. Praise others often when they add too both your and their value. Avoid accepting excuses in others.

    11. Give others help in situations that will produce value. This is the trick of coating success oriented compassion with the glaze of efficiency. As you start focusing others on being successful, you're positioning yourself for a greater inflow of opportunities in your life.


    Remember, being positive, is feeling nice and good about your trend of thought, but being enthusiastic, is taking action. One will not be truly durable through the condition of time, or, have a lasting effect without the other.

    These ingrained underlying theme thought processes, are the reason why corporate leaders can fly in on corporate jets and be chauffeured to the steps of Congress, and ask for bailout money.

    These thought processes are trained into individuals at their introduction into the layers of the banking systems, and or financial services institutions. This means that there is an orientation that is specific to financial agents and engineers. Just like there is an
    underlying 'Internet Marketing' mindset, there is also an underlying 'Financial Mindset'.

    The success ratios of the
    'Financial Mindset', dwarf others simply because there are included principles that consider human frailties that can e exploited. The acquisition of money from other humans, actually involves moral questions, that dilute ethical sensibilities. But that's another thread.



    Something to think about.........
