Your Attitude is Your Window to the World.
Attitude is like a mental window of your life. Through which you see the world.
If you have a muddy window then you will see the environment with a negative perspective. And, face adversity in your life. But, the truth is your attitude is negative.
However, once you clean your mental window, you can add happiness in your life, job, and other areas as well.
Example: The story of two guys Bill and Steve. Bill enters into a restaurant and a few minutes later Steve also walks into the same restaurant.
Steve sits down at a table a few feet away from Bill.
The same waitress takes the order and served both Bill and Steve. Each customer waits for the same amount of time.
But Steve has a delightful lunch and go back to work with a charged battery, however, Bill was annoyed as it takes too long for the waitress to deliver his meal.
You are a Human Magnet.
What is Law of Attraction?
You might hear the law of attraction.
It is one of life’s biggest mysteries. And, very few people are aware of the power of the Law of Attraction.
Whether you are doing this intentionally or unintentionally but every second, you are acting as a human magnet sending out your thoughts and emotions.
And attraction back more of what you are sending in the first place.
If you are sending wrong thoughts then you are making your life miserable. The same principle works with the mind.
Your mind will attract people and circumstances, according to your dominant thought.
What is Dominant Thought?
There is a power within each of you that pushes you in the direction of your current dominant thoughts.
The thoughts you keep repeating in your mind throughout the day will become your dominant thought.
The dominant thought does not mean that you will get a positive result when you spend ten seconds a day thinking positively while spending the remaining sixteen waking hours thinking negatively.
To develop a positive attitude. You have to change dominant thoughts.
Example: Imagine, there is a guy name Steffan. Steffan thinks, he is capable of earning $ 70,000 per year. So he makes a goal to earn $70,000 this year.
If Steffan clings to the thought, he will attract opportunities that will move him in the right direction to achieve his goal.
But, once Steffan allows negative though, that he cannot earn 70,000 a year, then, Steffan will not achieve his goal.
Picture your way to success.
Visualization is key to produce thought in reality.
Visualization is the process of creating a mental movie in your mind. It helps you to determine: the relationship you want, the degree of success you want to achieve, and the money you want to accumulate.
Unfortunately, you are not aware of it and playing the same negative movie that ruins your life.
Make a Commitment and You Will Move Mountains.
If you want to achieve something big then you need to commit yourself. Because commitment will help you to pave your path towards destiny.
Once you commit to achieving something. Then, you need to create a mental movie of your success, which in turn attract people, event, and circumstances that help you to reach your goals.
Example: The real-life story of Baldacci. Baldacci wants to become a best-selling novelist. But, he does not have the necessary writing skills so he commits to honing his craft.
In the starting five years. He did not finish any project. Every day he wakes up, works on his writing skills.
Even after ten years, his earning was zero. But then, in 1996, Baldacci’s efforts paid off. Because he receives millions of dollars for literacy.

Do you think words can alter your life?
In reality, words have hidden potential in it.
The choice of words you make will define your personality. Words can make your career. It all depends upon the kinds of words you use.
Learning new words and choosing colorful words in a conversation is not a bad idea. Because it will pay you back.
Thoughts > Words > Beliefs > Actions > Results >
The first step to change your life is to look words you use in everyday conversation in various areas of your life: relationship, finance, career, and health.
Example: Here is another story. It is the story of Tom. Tom thinks he is not good when it comes to sales.
Tom run the thought, throughout the day, maybe hundred or thousand of times in his mind. Thus, this strengthens his belief that he is not good at sales.
Now the truth is everything you achieve in your life flows from your belief. But, Tom belief he is not very good at sales.
Because Tom does not believe in his ability. He will take little action. And he would not do the things that would be necessary to succeed in sales. Therefore, Tom generates poor results.
That’s why Tom does not earn enough money.
Stop Complaining about everything.
How do you feel when your friend pours all of his negativity onto you?
I know what you are thinking. You would never try to meet him again. because no one wants to hear negative news.
You need to aware of the complaints you are making. As, it will not work in your favor, instead, it will work against you in three ways.
- No one wants to hear negativity.

Hand out with positive people.
The people you hang out with defining your future. That’s why. In childhood, the parents want to meet his child friends. As parents know, friends can greatly influence the child’s life.
Example: In high school, Mike spends his time with a bunch of guys in his neighborhood. These guys have no goals and dreams and were always negative.
Whenever mike suggests to-do something new, the other guys discourage him.
But, when Mike graduates from school and joins college for higher education.
He meets new guys who were positive, wants to learn and achieve something. Mike decides to spend his time with a new group.
Almost immediately, Mike starts to feel better. And, with time, he also develops a goal for his life. And a year later, Mike starts his business.

To wear the crown of victory on your head!

People like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg know to achieve something big. You need to keep doing something until you reach your destination.

I would like to recommend the book to the one that focuses on the negative side of every situation.
Example: An example of two guys working in a call center. The example throws light on how two people can think differently in the same scenario. It was a special day(Holi), the Indian festival. On this festival, we play with different colors.
In a conversation between Harsh and John. Harsh says to John that I am not feeling good because even at the festival, I was taking calls. But, John replies that we are as responsible as police. Because these guys were also working on this special occasion.
