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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

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!

Good listen

Overall the books was very good. Could have done without the section on why the wife should not nag at her husband and contributes to his negative mental attitude.

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.

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.

Best book ever!!

I have listened to a lot of books and this one is the best! It shows the wonderful life you can get if you apply the principlesof using PMA in your life! Too many people has a negative mental attitude, NMA and its easy to see how their life turns out in contrast to people living with a PMA attitude. I live by PMA and I am almost never sick, I don't get a cold or the flu even if a really sick person snieses at me. That is because PMA strengthen your immune-system! David White is the narrator of this book and he does that in a marvellous way! Interresting voice and good modulation, you feel that he speeks directly to you and he bring forward the philosophy and principles that is made by W. Clement Stone and Napoleon Hill in a way that makes you do the changes in your life and starting to apoly PMA in every walk of life! I strongly recommend that you listen to this book, and I guarantee that if you apply the principles, you will have a much better life even if you feel that your lufe is good right now, so it will improve even more! Best regards from Stein in Norway 😊❤️

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 ..
