Step 1: How you think is everything: Always be positive!

Do you know someone who seems to always have a smile and a positive attitude? Are you always surprised how things always seem to go their way even during tough times? They seem to know that tomorrow will bring a better day. If you yourself always see the brighter side of things, you may feel that you experience more positive events in your life than others, find yourself less stressed, and even enjoy greater health benefits.

The more positive you are about your invention and life in general, others around you will begin to believe your thoughts and feelings. The more enthusiasm you bring in the promotion and discussions concerning your invention the more success your invention will have.

To build a positive attitude you must remind yourself of past victories. Congratulate yourself on the good you have done and will do. Refuse to let any self-doubt enter your mind at any time. Just tell yourself over and over, "I am filled with confidence, and I believe in my invention!"

This also goes for finding positive and enthusiastic phrases that best describe your invention. The more you use these phrases the more you will believe them, and more importantly, your buyers and investors will believe them as well.

When you make a mistake, learn the lesson in that mistake and laugh at yourself. In fact people who can't laugh at themselves are not only more negative, but they’re also more susceptible to cancer, stroke, and heart disease. So laugh and smile as much as possible.

In the women's 100-meter dash at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, for example, the gold medal was won by an American who crossed the line only 2-1/2 inches in front of her closest opponent. Fifth place went to a Jamaican who finished a mere 6/100th of a second behind her. And yet that little bit of measurement made all the difference in the world.

The same goes for attitude. When you compare age, gender, upbringing, education, IQ, and just about any other factor you can think of, research says that positive attitude makes all the difference in success in both your personal and professional lives. In fact, the research makes it clear that attitude is more important than any other element when it comes to ensuring success.

If you follow this first step in both your personal and professional life you will find that you will not only be a happier person, but a more successful one as well!
