Positive Mental Attitude: Season 2 – Episode 20 – Now It’s Time To Test – Part A

I’ve been through a heck of a lot of episodes already in terms of this book, and now is a good time to look at your own mental attitude.

“We call it your Success Quotient Analysis. And it is based on the 17 success principles which have been responsible for the worthwhile achievements of the world’s outstanding leaders in all fields. It has many purposes:

To direct your thoughts in desired channels.

To crystallize your own thinking.

To indicate your present position on the road to success.

To encourage you to decide exactly where you want to be.

To measure your chances of reaching your desired destination.

To indicate your present ambitions and other characteristics.

To motivate you to desirable action with PMA.”

It’s time to take the test, and I also have the PDF at the bottom of the page for you so you can print it out and write it down.
