The Importance of Positive Attitude

Napoleon Hill in his book, “Keys to Success: The 17 Principles of Personal Achievement“, writes about the importance of Positive Mental Attitude (PMA).
A Positive Mental Attitude is the right attitude in any given situation. Our attitude influences our tone, posture, facial expression, and how we act and respond to any particular situation. It effects our thought process. It is reflected in every word that we speak and in our emotions.
A negative attitude is so damaging to our efforts, that we might as well stay home than venturing into the world with it. It could make enemies and corrupt our good works and reputation.
