Publisher's Summary

Your mind has a secret invisible talisman. On one side is emblazoned the letters PMA (positive mental attitude) and on the other the letters NMA (negative mental attitude). A positive attitude will naturally attract the good and the beautiful. The negative attitude will rob you of all that makes life worth living.

Your success, health, happiness, and wealth depend on how you make up your mind!

When motivational pioneer Napoleon Hill and millionaire CEO W. Clement Stone teamed up to form one of the most remarkable partnerships of all time, the result was Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, the phenomenon that proposed to the world that with the right attitude, anyone can achieve his or her dreams. Now you can take advantage of the program that has brought success to generations of people seeking, and finding, a better way to live.

Happiness and endless possibilities await

Even though I was already a generally happy person, I bought this book to help improve my attitude regarding the things I didn't like at work. This book has not only taught me how to get rid of those negative feelings, but also how to turn dissatisfaction into motivation to excel. I now enjoy all aspects of my job, and I'm completing more tasks with higher quality.

But the book's lessons do not only apply to the office. I have a new outlook on life, because the book made me realize the endless possibilities that are available to my family and me. It provides both motivation and principles that when followed have but no choice than to lead to success.

Different people will relate to different topics in the book, so some sections are less interesting than others, but I definitely recommend this book to everyone!

Excellent book

Very inspiring book and motivational. This self help book not only helps to motivate but it really puts in perspective on, "what do you really stand for in this life?" " does your life have any meaning in the position that you are in?" And that what makes a change I am buying this book for my family members

Its another standard you have to absorb.

Another one to get under your belt for self improvement and different ways of looking at things. It is nice to know this stuff was out there for decades ago. I wish I read it when I was young. It will give you more indepth info on the PMA concept and you should do it, even if some examples seem older.

A Classic

There isn't going to be much for me to add to what has already been said about this book and these two authors. It may be an older title, and some of the examples given in the book reference companies that are no longer in existence but the core ideas, values, and lessons remain timeless. I guess that speaks volumes about the authors and what a firm grip on their subject matter they had. This is one of those classics that you'll want to hear at least every year. It might be my favorite Audible title of this genre.

Great self-help book

I loved this book. The authors provide so many valuable lessons. Although the themes are similar to Think and Grow Rich, it helps to hear them over and over again. Highly recommend it if you are ready to make a change in your life. Going to listen to it again! Enjoy!

A wonderful lesson on starting a life over.

Today could be the first day of the rest of your life. Read and reread this book again and again as if it was your new guide to finding what is important in your life and achieving all that you desire. Life is too short...

very religious and very vague

I'm struggling to continue this book. Every story is vague and almost irrelevant and credits god to true success stories? and the repetitiveness is almost detracting from the point of each chapter.. hard read ..
