the limitations Hill and Stone Speak of in their original work, “Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude,” are…
- Failing to change a Negative Mental Attitude to a Positive Mental Attitude.
- Not learning how to use the powers that exist within your own mind.
- Not bothering to take the time to think, study, and plan, or even bother to set goals.
- Failure to act upon something that you know how to do.
- Neglecting to recognize, and bring into play, any universal principles that could help you to achieve your desired goals.
- Setting up barriers in your own mind; believing them to be insurmountable, with the operative phrase here being, “In Your Own Mind!”
