Napoleon Hill: Positive Mental Attitude – Part I Review

Welcome to a nice rundown of Part 1 of Napoleon Hill’s Positive Mental Attitude book.  Because I haven’t done these podcasts in ages, here’s a breakdown of the chapter and show notes of what I’ve talked about.

Thoughts to steer by

  1. Meet the most important living person! That person is YOU! Your success, health, happiness, wealth depend on how you use your invisible talisman.
  2. Your mind is your talisman.  PMA or NMA. PMA Is the right mental attitude for each specific occasion.  It has the power to attract the good and the beautiful.  NMA repels them.
  3. Every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit for those who have PMA.  Sometimes the things that seem to be adversities turn out to be opportunities in disguise.
