Keep away from people who are always despondent; who always have a mental picture of some bad luck that is on the way. You can derive no benefit from association with such people; they spread the contagion of poverty thought, and in their company you will surely assimilate some of their ruinous-thought element. To say that "I can" and "I will" places you in alignment with thought currents that inevitably lead to "SUCCESS."

People who think achieving success is a linear A-to-Z process, a straight shot to the top, simply aren't in touch with reality. There are very few bona fide overnight success stories. It just doesn't work that way. Success appears to happen overnight because we all see stories in newspapers and on TV about previously unknown people who have suddenly become famous. But consider a sequoia tree that has been growing for several hundred years. Just because a television crew one day decides to do a story about that tree doesn't mean it didn't exist before.
