11. Don’t Count On Overnight Success
Before concluding, I’d like to clarify a few things about positive thinking and the power of our thoughts. First of all, positive thinking doesn’t mean that you’ll achieve your goals overnight. It’s not as if you start thinking about making more money and the next morning you wake up and find a stack of dollar bills at your bedside. Not by a long shot.
Success requires effort, commitment and patience.
And secondly, positive thinking doesn’t mean you won’t have any more problems. Believe me, you’ll have plenty of setbacks along the way. However, if you continue to believe in yourself, take action and persist, you’ll overcome those obstacles.
Remember, you are constantly moving in the direction of your dominant thoughts. Everything you achieve in your lifetime flows from your thoughts and beliefs.
Negative thinking yields negative results... and positive thinking produces positive results. Keep your attitude window clean and bright so that the positive thoughts can come shining through.
It simply makes no sense to think negative thoughts... unless you want to get negative results. And I know you don’t want that to happen.
So, from this point forward, choose your thoughts wisely and use this powerful principle to get fantastic results in your life!
