PMA = positive mental attitude.

The idea that if you think positively you will have the attitude to make things happen and go out there and make it happen. The universe will listen and throw good things your way. You won’t give up and you lead yourself to success.

Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity successful men act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results.
William James
I think that sending good vibes out is a great step in the right direction and being positive means you’re more likely to focus on the end goal and put in the time and effort instead of feeling negative, thinking “I’ll never do this” and giving up so you can bury your head under your duvet with a tub of ice cream.
But it’s not always easy to stay in an upbeat frame of mind. Especially when you’re faced with obstacles, rejection and other road blocks on your way. I told my Facebook friends this week that I wished I could have some fairy dust to sprinkle to give things that extra special chance of sparkling. But unfortunately there was none to be had so I’m stuck with the old-fashioned route of using PMA instead. Sigh.
I’m going to keep trying for it – who’s with me?

  1. Great reminder, Victoria. It can be so hard to stay positive amidst everything life throws our way, but I’ve seen the very powerful effects of positive thinking in my own life! Sending a smile your way 🙂

  2. Absolutely with you! I’ve been better about this the last week or two than for a few months prior. It’s making a huge difference in how much I get accomplished.

  3. Good thinking my friend. Positive thinking can help lead to positive things happening in your life. That isn’t to say that you don’t think through, but just that you give it a try and hope for the best. Let’s all be positive.

  4. PMA is very important! They say life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it. I believe it. I also remember a banner that hung in my classroom in middle school that said “Attitude is the mind’s paintbrush. It can color any situation.” So true. I’m with ya on the PMA!

  5. Definitely. PMA is proven to be a very effective method of achieving big things. Some people just have that spark and it all comes to them, but the ones who try will always eventually succeed.

  6. I’m with you Victoria! Attitude affects so much. If failure is not an option (in your mind), it makes success so much more likely. 🙂
