I would argue that one of the most important and powerful success strategies that anyone can own, is having the proper mindset.

It doesn't matter if you know all the greatest marketing secrets on the planet, it doesn't matter if you have the best product or service going, it really doesn't matter if you have all the wisdom in the world... all of that doesn't make a bit of difference... if your head isn't screwed on correctly.

Again; you’ll need to have the proper mindset if you are going to succeed at the highest levels.

Remember this: Negative people get negative results. It’s just a natural and obvious thing. One, naturally follows the other. In case you’re thinking it, I'm not saying that having the proper mindset simply means being positive for the sake of being positive. You could be heading in completely the wrong direction, but still have that ‘oh, things will soon get better, all we’ve got to do is THINK POSITIVE…’ The more appropriate response would be to say; ‘Oh heck, we’re lost. Let’s see what we can do to get us back on track!’

Facing reality and doing something about it is where the true genius in living, really is.

See, the key is not to just "think positive" the key is to DO, to take POSITIVE ACTIONS that move you closer toward your goals. It’s by doing that, that you have something to feel positive about.

On the other hand, the pessimistic, negative person is not going to succeed long term. Even if things are presently good for this type of person, they will always expect things to turn bad – ‘it’s not going to last’, things can’t be that good’ ‘when’s the bubble going to burst’ it’ll work for others but not me'.

Look inside yourself. Are you a positive or negative thinking person? Are you taking action to reach your goals? Have you prepared yourself on a mental level to do what it takes to create the life you dream about?

Think deeply about; act; and then... make 2007 your best year ever!
