Motivation – Chapter VI (Part II)

Ready to attack success

So you’ve got a problem? That’s good! Why? Because repeated victories over your problems are the rungs on your ladder of success. With each victory you grow in wisdom, stature and experience. You become a better, bigger, more successful person each time you meet a problem and tackle and conquer it with PMA.

Everyone has problems. This is because you and everything in the universe are in a constant process of change. Change is an inexorable natural law. What is important to you is that your success of failure to meet the challenge of change are dependent upon your mental attitude. You can direct your thoughts and control your emotions, and thus regulate your attitude. You can choose whether your attitude will be positive or negative. You can decide whether you will affect, use, control, or harmonize with the changes in yourself and your environment. You can ordain your destiny. When you meet the challenges of change with PMA, you can intelligently solve each problem with which you are confronted. So, when you are faced with a problem, regardless of how perplexing it may be; you can effectively use the following formula to solve them:

  • Ask for Divine Guidance
  • Engage in thinking time for the purpose of solving your problems. Remember that every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit for those with a positive mental thought.
  • State the problem. Analyze and define it.
  • State to yourself enthusiastically: “that’s good!”
  • Ask yourself some specific questions, such as : “what’s good about it?” “how can I turn this adversity into a seed of greater benefit; or “how can I turn this liability into a greater asset?”
  • Keep searching for answers to these questions until you find atleast one answer that can work.

The problems that will confront you will be of three kinds: a) personal b) family problems c) business or professional problems. Fortunately, not everyone is faced with problems as severe as those which others (those involved in thefts, sentenced to prison, or in outright shooting cases and terror attacks) are called upon to meet and solve; where those others with a certain mind-set are required to change their attitude from negative to positive. Negative attitudes are often contagious; as are bad habits of a person. Let us look at our own association and be certain to keep them on the highest possible level. One of the greatest services we can render to our children is to motivate them to motivate themselves to select the right kind of friends and association.

Another force with which every human being has to contend, and which, if not met with PMA, can cause physical, moral and mental destruction is the power of sex. Sex persents the greatest challenge of change! Each human being has the power to choose for himself whether he will usse the tremendous power of sex, for good or for evil. Each individual must contend with the problem that will arise in his life because of sex. The inherent emotion of sex is one of the most powerful forces of the subconscious mind.the effects of its motivating power can be observed long before adolescence. This power blends with and intensifies the driving force of all other emotions. When it is in conflict with the will of the conscious mind, the power of imagination, as it affects the emotions of sex, has a tendency to win unless the conscious mind uses its power to effect, use, control or harmonize with the powers of the subconscious. Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want. You have the power to choose. Choose wisely- with PMA. Transmute sex into virtue!

Virtue is moral practice or action, moral excellence ; rectitude; valor; chastity. The seven virtues of our life are:

  1. Prudence – the ability to process and discipline one’s self by the exercise of reason
  2. Fortitude – strength of mind that enables a perso to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage. It is the possession of stamina essential to face that which repels or frightens one, or to put up with the hardships of a task imposed. It implies triumph.
  3. Temperance – habitual moderation in the indulgence of appetites and passions.
  4. Justice – the principle of just dealing or rightful action; also conformity to this principle are ideal or integrity.
  5. Faith – trust in the power of  Almighty.
  6. Hope – the desire with expectation of obtaining what is desired, or belief that it is obtainable.
  7. Charity – the act of loving all because they are of the same Creator. It stresses benevolence and goodwill in giving and in the broad understanding of others with kindly tolerance.

Not all the problems of one’s personal life, however are so deep and penetrating a nature. But at times, it does happen that your personal problem can take its toll on your business or professional one. Many times all that it takes to meet an immediate problem is a quick thinking, adaptability, and taking a second look at the situation which is causing the problem. It often takes only one idea, followed by action, toturn failure into success.

Remember the seventeen principles of success? Once a principle has been acquired it becomes a part of  one and is never lost. It can be applied to novel problems and does not become absolete as do all facts in a changing society does.results can be achieved when you relate and assimilate the prionciples into your own life. But one mustgain knowledge for himself. Search for your answer during thinking time by creating your own environment .

Sources  of all answers and ideas are :  

  1. Knowledge stored in the subconscious mind and acquired through individual experience, observation and education.
  2. Knowledge accumulated by others through the same medium, which may be communicated by telepathy.
  3. The great universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence, wherein is stored all knowledge and all facts, and which may be contacted through the subconscious section of the mind.
