A Year of Growing Rich: Be Optimisic
This is the 30th week of a 52 week motivational journey and I want to invite you along. Each week, I will touch on one of the chapters from Napoleon Hill's book titled A Year of Growing Rich and subtitled "52 Steps to Achieving Life's Rewards."

We often describe people as being optimistic or pessimistic. And have you noticed that successful people are usually optimistic.
"You can learn to practice the habit of optimism and thereby greatly enhance your chances of achieving success. Or you can drive yourself into the pit of pessimism and failure," says Hill.
Optimism is a major personality trait and it is important for you to cultivate it.
"Instead of worrying about the bad things that might befall you, spend a few minutes every day enumerating the pleasant events that will happen tomorrow, next week, next month, next year! By thinking about them, you will find yourself laying plans to make them happen! By doing so, you are getting in the habit of optimism," says Hill.
Hill says, "No great leader or successful person was ever a pessimist".
Hill explains, "Optimism is, in itself, a kind of success, for it means you have a healthy, peaceful and contented mind. An exceedingly wealthy person can be a failure physically, if his constant pessimism has given him ulcers".
Hill concludes saying, "Learn to meet the future head-on. Analyze it. Weigh the factors with clear judgment. Then decide upon your course of action to make things turn out the way you want them. You'll find that the future holds nothing you ever need to fear".
