As iron sharpens iron, so
people can improve each other.
From the mid-thirties to the early-sixties, a passel of success-related books came to market. To name a few: How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936); Think and Grow Rich (1937); The Power of Positive Thinking (1952); The Magic of Thinking Big (1959); Success through a Positive Mental Attitude (1960); Psycho-Cybernetics (1960).
All were focused on attitude, affirming that those who cultivate a positive attitude live happy and productive lives. They’re excited about life, grab hold of opportunities that come their way, concentrate on what’s good, and refuse to wallow in negative mud.
Some—especially academics—considered the genre shallow and trite. But no one can deny the enormous audience it pulled and the positive influence it generated.
I would vigorously applaud a reemergence of a positive attitude.
Start today with a positive attitude
and a grateful heart.
