Positive attitude leads to success

I have been reading personal development (also called "self-help") books since I was in the third year of high school. These books have shaped my life and played an important role in making me who I am today.

The most important thing in your life, if you want to be successful, fulfilled and happy, is your attitude. A positive attitude is worth more than a Harvard degree. It can take you to places and do things for you that a PhD from even the top universities in the world cannot do.

I've traveled to 26 countries. I've lived in and experienced a lot of different cultures. I've met a lot of good people and a few that, well, weren't so good. But I've always approached every thing in life with a positive attitude. In fact, I have written a book on having a positive, powerful attitude that sold over 100,000 copies in the United States.

I don't have too many bad days. I plan for things to go right. I plan to meet and interact with people who will enhance my life while I add some value to theirs. Every day is a new choice. Have a positive attitude, for it makes for a happy life.
