Is Positive Thinking Killing Your Dreams?

Think of the lies positive thinking tells you:

"Things always work out. Life happens just the way it is supposed to. The universe will take care of me. My attitude is attracting good things. When God closes a door, he always opens a window."

These statements are not true. There is no magic out there working on your behalf. Think of all the dreamers whose ship never came in, the millions dying of obesity, the drug addicts wasting their lives; the hordes hoping for miracles that never come.

Things don't always just work out for the better.

Things also don't always work out for the worst.

You make them work. And it takes work. Lots of it.

Here is a real-world phrase that will set you on the path you want: "I am not an optimist or a pessimist; I am a strategist."

Your competition is thinking positively. So are your enemies. You have to do what they are not. You have to get up early, get moving and don't let up. Do that extra pushup, that extra phone call, t…

The Good Men Project ambitiously aims to reinvent social media by making it into a live conversation where great ideas are discussed. The purpose of being a part of this group is to engender change; to make real innovati…

If It's Fast, It Ain't Love. It's Deadly.

There's nothing like the rush of your fist love. When you're a kid, you have little to lose, and you don't need much more than attraction to fire up your hormones and get your heart racing. Too many grownups spend the rest of their lives trying to recreate that rush of sudden love.
The result is inappropriate and even dangerous relationships. When you choose charm over character, you are rolling the dice with your love life. But can't you get lucky and happen to find someone through love at first sight and still have a person of strong morals, good character and a positive outlook on life?
No. And here's why. 
A Good Person Won't Encourage You to Feel Worthless
A person who allows you to rush into a relationship knows you are desperate. Your mate will have the upper hand the whole time you're together because you will have shown you’ll do anything to keep from being alone.
