Oh, thank God, somebody is willing to say it. Every time, I go to the book store I stare in total disbelief at a wall of books explaining that your mental attitude will bring you wealth, love and maybe stave off death.
I live in a strange world where actually being able to do things and think intelligently make you money. I live in a strange place where putting affirmations on the wall and repeating themselves to yourself at key moments in the day just makes you look odd.
Let’s stop thinking positive and start planning, working and doing. That’s where things happen.

For around 400 years, the Western mind has struggled attempting to solve problems by logic using facts. It has not caught on. We still read horoscopes and to my continued astonishment often believe that if we thing hard enough “positively,” it will be so.
When we make decisions, the facts and an accurate assessment are our best allies. But in the United States, there is a perception that only positive, optimistic, emotionally intelligent people are the ones to be emulated.
It’s all nonsense. Read the article, it’s somewhat in line with what I am saying. I will elaborate further in a later article.
