Talisman – Positive Mental Attitude

Today let’s talk about we can reverse that side to having PMA or positive mental attitude, a side that you’ll want to have with you wherever you go.

Cartoon of a monkey doing pushups

Now one might be able tell from the title, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, that the title says it all. However, the book goes deeper than just success; it talks about PMA as it is a way of life. “Success” to everybody means different things, but in order to achieve their kind of success, one has to develop a positive mental attitude through practice and perseverance. It doesn’t just come “pre-packaged”.

In the previous post, I stated that most people become unhappy because of things that they don’t have. Instead of finding a solution to their woes, they develop a negative mental attitude from inside to out. Realize that, with PMA, it is possible to achieve anything you want including what was stated yesterday:Wealth
Happiness
Relationship
Friendship
Dream House
Dream Car
Skinny
Muscular
Fame
Confidence

This is not a full list of things so feel free to add to it. I also realize that there are some things in life that are permanent. These things are a lot more difficult to conquer and usually even on the mere thought of these permanent things, it brings out a negative mental attitude in us.

But also realize that even if some things are permanent, there are ways that are unknown to your mind at this point to solving the problem and in order to even see that, you have to first try to at least develop a positive mental attitude.

Think of it as a see-saw. There is a balance. For everything that seems negative in your life, there is something that equality positive that you can have. If there is a low degree of negative, there will be a low degree of positive. If there is a high degree of negative, there will be a high degree of positive as well. It just depends if you’re willing to see that other side or not.

Napoleon Hill once said, “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of equal or greater benefit.” It is true that even with the worse adversities, failures, and heartaches, there is something to learn from it and receive from it in a positive form.

That’s why it’s important that instead of saying things such as I cannot, it will bring in a way of looking at things if we say things such as:

I can!
It’s doable!
It’s possible!
There is a way!
I choose how to react to him!
I choose how to react to her!
I need to change myself!
I can change!
I am as gifted as anybody else!
I can do anything!

When you start to reframe the I cannots to I cans, you’ll start to see a power within yourself manifesting all the situations to something positive. You’ll find yourself holding the power to influence yourself and others too.

One of the biggest messages of the book was having a magnificent obsession. And that is simply having an obsession of helping others to make the world a better place through positive mental attitude. Even if you can’t help yourself, and you can’t find happiness within yourself, you might be able to find happiness by helping others feel good or succeed.

Whether this is giving them a compliment, doing a deed, smiling, or any other small thing, these all make a difference in raising people’s moods and allowing yourself to be a more positive person as well. Through PMA, a person will no longer have to use negative ways to get through life. It will build a character of the following traits:

Loving
Courage
Trustworthy
Honest
Patient
Proactive
Just
Confident
Friendly
Peaceful

A character with these traits do not view problems as bad things, but as challenges to overcome. Most people view problems and what the word implies – problem, headache, frustration etc.

Instead of seeing a problem that you may dislike, view the problem as something that is suppose to help you grow as a person. If the problem involves other people, and what they have done to you, it doesn’t matter about them.

What matters is you, so let them go as you cannot be burdened by people problems for your time, whether this is a year, five years, or ten years.

When you let positive mental attitude in the worst of times, you motivate yourself when you feel like you can’t do anything. It will help you motivate others when they feel down as well. It will help you find a way out of what seems impossible for you at the time and it will spread like a fire effecting everybody around you. It will help you attract wealth if you are poor or help you find love in your life if you are alone. It builds character and a pleasing personality that others want to be around and want to learn from.

But most importantly, by having a positive attitude, you will feel healthy, you will feel happy, and you will feel terrific every single day. You will wake up with enthusiasm because you no longer want to waste time sleeping. You notice that there’s a lot of unhappy people who oversleep because they are thinking way too much about their worries, rather than what they can be doing in life! You are what you think about. So never let time pass you by because we only have on life to live and time will be gone. Utilize every moment that you have with an attitude that shines from inside out.

The Tragedy of Mental Illness

When we see a homeless man begging on the side of the road it evokes different emotions in us and one reason could be that he is a tragedy of mental illness. If he appears out of touch with reality, we feel fear. If he is an alcoholic and begging for money, we feel anger, assuming his alcoholism is what landed him on the streets in the first place. What we don’t realize is that in many instances, people who are homeless are often a tragedy of mental illness and no medication. It is common for drugs and alcohol to be used in an attempt to self medicate, leading to addiction problems.

Mental illness strikes new victims each day, robbing them of a quality of life that most people maintain on a daily basis. Those of us who live with a sound mind are often unaware of the suffering the mentally ill endure unless we have a friend or relative who has this disease. In silence it attacks the mind, rendering it powerless without some kind of intervention. In turn, the one suffering is forced to depart from all that he or she has known as normal and enters a private hell from which there is no escape. To be a prisoner of your own mind is a tragedy that that is incomprehensible yet intriguing at the same time. Often used as a platform for movies and entertainment, it is anything but entertaining to the one who is in its grips.

Isolation creeps in as friends and family keep their distance when behaviors become unpredictable and bizarre. Forced to face the frailty of the human mind we often turn our heads in an attempt to maintain our own strong standing when we see that this disease is not a respecter of persons. Where does that leave the sick? Imprisoned, alone and friendless. This, in itself, is the greater tragedy. In a world where there is so much information and insight there is no excuse for such ignorance. What do the mentally ill need from us the most? They need understanding and compassion, but most of all, they need a friend. Be one.

Losing Weight is a Mental Process

Losing weight is a mental process and it begins with the amount of your daily intake of calories. If you are burning more calories than your body takes in, you will lose weight (generally speaking). It’s a simple formula really but involves more of your mental capacity than anything else if you want to succeed.

Habits are hard to break, I understand that. That’s just how the psyche of the human brain works. It becomes a daily battle in your head to overcome bad habits and begin to develop new and healthier habits. This applies to weight loss as well.

The first thing you need to do is realize just what it is that you have done wrong. Or more like what steps have you taken in your life that has led you to where you are currently. Your current body is a direct result of the choices you have made with your diet and exercise up to this point. So if you want to change, you are going to need to change your lifestyle too. And it begins with knowing the right things to eat and the right workouts to use.

Stop eating foods high in calories like ice cream, soda, candy, deep fat fried foods, and fast foods in general. As soon as you start weeding these foods out of your diet, your body will respond immediately.
Even if you don’t add in a workout routine since you are intaking fewer calories, your body will start pulling energy from the fat you have stored and thus you will lose weight as a result.

Over time you will become more and more used to making healthier choices in your diet and it will become easier to go about your life as if you had never made those bad food choices before. You see, your body doesn’t work like your mind and dwell on the past. It only knows what you are doing to it presently. So if you eat well now, your body will respond and you will feel and look better.

Your diet is the most important aspect of losing weight. The other aspect is the exercise. You can lose the weight without exercise, but exercise will speed up the process and it can even allow you to eat more and still lose weight. You can optimize your weight loss by combining both diet and exercise and lose weight even when your body is at rest.

Again though, most people are aware of the fact that diet and exercise are the keys to weight loss yet still don’t seem to want to lose the weight. It has to be up to you to take the initiative to want to change and actually make that change.

Mental Baggage Slows You Down

Mental baggage slows you down which you don’t really need to carry? You need to travel as lightly as you possibly can in order to make the better distance. Mental baggage will slow you down and prevent you from reaching your goals just the same as a heavy physical load.

I like to use the analogy of the jockey who guides a racehorse to victory as well as the soldier or hiker who has to carry a heavy backpack. They can’t make good time if they carry excess baggage and neither can you.

Now the thing that I am referring to here is mental baggage slows you down which you don’t really need to carry? You need to travel as lightly as you possibly can in order to make the better distance. that we are prone to carry. I’m talking about hurt feelings, anger, jealousy, worry etc. Carrying these things in your heart will do absolutely nothing to change your situation even if you were put in the situation by unfair treatment. For example, the businessman who has to file bankruptcy because his competition was able to get an illegal or unfair advantage over him won’t be able to deal with the situation by worrying about it. He will have to divorce his mind about the situation in order to concentrate on doing what he needs to do to break free.

Worry, will not help you. Worry won’t change the bad situation which is exactly the thing that you need to do. The time that you spend worrying is a time which would be better spent on applying a solution to your problem. The test of a real winner is the way that he or she responds to adversity. How do you respond? Do you allow the situation to overwhelm you and take away your effectiveness, or do you regroup and rebound?

Complications and negative emotions only cloud the mind and impair good judgment. Mental baggage slows you down which you don’t really need to carry? You need to keep your mind free in order to be ready to deal with the problems and issues that you face. Too many mental issues prevent you from focusing on the tasks at hand at the precise time that they need your undivided attention. You can sometimes afford to step back when things are going well but the time immediately following a catastrophe is the time that you need to be at your best.

I have quoted Evander Holyfield before but I once heard him make a statement which was so very profound to me. He was talking with a sportscaster immediately following a fight that he had won. During the fight, his opponent had hurt him badly and was pummeling him against the ropes. The sportscaster asked him if he was afraid of losing at that point to which Evander replied, I look at the times when I am hurt as an opportunity to excel. As I pondered this statement I understood exactly what he meant. This is the time when everyone else thinks that you should fold which makes it the best possible opportunity for a comeback. Evander was able to overcome the hurt, both mental and physical and focus on doing whatever he needed to do in order to win.

In order for you to come back from a loss, you must first divorce yourself from the negatives that are associated with the situation. Evander knew how to ignore the physical pain, fear, and fatigue that he must have felt to come back and win the fight.

You can do the same but you must learn how to move on from the negative circumstance. Take time to figure out exactly what you need to do in order to win. Break down your requirement into small easy tasks and do them one at a time. Focus on each task until you complete it and WIN!!!

Mental Skill Vs Physical Skill

Our body is an instrument meant to do good works So misuse of sense organs will adversely affect your physical well being.

Going beyond body, mind, and intellect; we should go beyond the body and it’s various passions, mind and it’s lust, intellect and it’s restlessness. We should have perfect control over our body, mind, and intellect. We should not hear the unusual demand of our sense organs. We should go beyond and stay in a state of elevated consciousness so as to have full command over our external and internal activities. We should have a developed state of consciousness and always remaining in that state we can better judge ourselves and our activities and can have full command over our lives. Our life is in our hand. Going beyond body, mind, and intellect we can perfectly manage various aspects of life. We should also be able to think outside of the box.

Meditation and exercise; these two are the most powerful tools to keep ourselves healthy both mentally and physically.

Such is the power of a concentrated and focused mind. Through daily doses of exercise, we can have a perfect body and our mind will also remain alert.

The Doctor’s Advice On Mental Health

The doctor’s advice on mental health; throughout the years in my medical practice regarding to overall health, I have noticed that people will immediately think of their physical body. Often times they will make the mistake of thinking that a perfect physical body is all that is needed. Although it is true that being physically healthy can impact a person’s mental state in a positive way, there are people out there who suffer from poor mental health. The fact of the matter is that the mental welfare is just as important as physical health.

Good mental health is extremely important if you want to stay as healthy as possible. However, if you believe that you are suffering from some depression and tend to feel unhappy or sad most of the time, there are some things you can do in order to improve your level. The first and by far most important thing I can stress is the need to get enough sleep. It can never be stressed enough that the average person does not get enough sleep. This constant lack of sleep can lead to fatigue and random emotional behaviors.

Eating well also tends to play a major role. If your body is not getting the right vitamins and other nutrients it needs, your mental health can be negatively affected. Exercising can also prove helpful. Now, I do not mean for you to go out and work yourself until you are unconscious. I mean just little things like using stairs instead of elevators, or taking a relaxing bike ride outdoors, or even a nice relaxing swim.

The doctor’s advice on mental health; believe it or not, there are many people who have a difficult time improving their mental status. Even with the suggestions I have given above, there are still different problems that need to be addressed. There is the basic possibility that your poor mental health is caused by something from the past or even a bad relationship that you are involved with. As a medical physician, I would suggest that you seek professional help from a licensed therapist.

Overall, I would suggest that you do more of your own research into mental health concerns rather than only have the doctor’s advice on mental health and decide what might work best for your situation. Many people I have consulted with loved their sessions with their therapists. They tell me that it really gives them “piece of mind” knowing that they can talk to someone and “vent” their angers and frustrations. If you keep your emotions bottled up inside, at some point, thing will erupt like a volcano and seriously damage your mental well being.
