I do not understand why one goes into a fight assuming a loss.
I do not grasp how serious negativity impedes not just success but all progress.
The roll out of my productivity series, The Absolute Guide to YOU!, started two weeks ago and perhaps due to that my perception of people is amplified… but only in a bad way. It’s as though the entire nation has a “what’s in it for me?” mindset as opposed to, “What must I do to get the job done?”

I’m going to post excerpts from time to time from this series. Perhaps these will inspire you to face your next challenge with, “Where do I begin?” instead of “How could I possibly do that?”
Thus, an excerpt from Book 5, YOU The Winner – 6 Easy-To-Do Lessons for a Happier, More Fulfilling Life:
The stronger your convictions, the smaller the circle of other people you will find with those convictions. This will be the “remnant” who adhere to your tenets and core beliefs in whatever field those beliefs in fall in.
A tight, close-knit circle of like-minded people can accomplish much whereas the masses cannot. History shows even one person with a healthy mindset can accomplish much. I have it on Good authority that faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains.
So What Do You Do First?
Find others who think as you think. Find others with your mindset. Fire the friends who drag you down; misery loves company. In this negative age, you have no reason to add to the distress all around you. It is the remnant you choose to be with that makes you remain strong. Small groups of strong convictions do far more good than large groups have the ability or means to do.
It was only a small band of people who gained independence for America from the British. Sure, lots fought but it was an extremely small band who had convictions enough to put the gears in motion and start the movement happening.
Note: Winners don’t hide from or seek publicity. Losers often try to shield their beliefs anonymously and spout off how privacy is so important to them. Hogwash! The Founding Fathers cared so little about privacy, they wrote their own names at the bottom of America’s most famous document. Each one very well could have been signing their own death certificate. They were open traitors against the law of the land, which was British. (Paul Revere did not ride through the streets of Boston yelling, “The British are coming, the British are coming!” because everybody was British!)
The push for American independence is just one obvious example of a deed that could never succeed, one that was done by a small handful of winners who were so convicted in their core beliefs that they put their lives on the line. And in doing so they created the greatest country the world had ever seen; one that did not begin crumbling until the social engineers of the mid-20th century began imploding her from within by punishing winners for the first time in her history….
Note: The American Revolution did have its share of problems as I outline here.
