8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
If you were to make a good cake, you would have to make sure that you used the correct ingredients. Success is the same way. Most of us would probably never think of making or even eating a cake without flour. Yet many people desire to have great success in life without using the essential ingredients for successful living.
One of the main ingredients for success is changing the way you think. Thinking like the masses will get you the same results as the masses. The problem with following the herd (having the herd mentality) is if all are running off the cliff, you will soon follow. Over 90% of most people think negative thoughts. They hope and wish that one day the will have great success. This will not work. Negative thinking is dangerous. If you allow your dominant thoughts to be negative, they can also affect your health.
Your thoughts are like magnets. Positive thoughts breed positive thoughts and negative thought breed negative thoughts. Positive thoughts will cause you to have positive actions and positive actions create successful outcomes. One way to change your thoughts is by changing your words. Call for those things that you would like to have.
I enjoy winning in life so I say:

I am abundantly blessed.
Remember to be a winner you have to think like a winner!
