Schwartz argues that the main thing holding people back is the relative smallness of their thoughts, and explains the importance of ‘Thinking positively toward oneself’.[6] He begins the book by relating a story of a salesman who sells significantly more product and makes more money than his co-workers. Schwartz points out that the man was not smarter, more educated or better connected than his colleagues. According to Schwartz, the man expected to sell more so he did.[6]

Another important idea that Schwartz reminds us through this book is – ‘To see what can be, not just what is’. He explains that visualization adds value to everything and thinking big means training oneself to see not just what is, but what can be.[6][7]

The next message the book gives its readers is the necessity of – ‘Broadcasting good news’ He explains transmitting good news is win win, and we feel better and so do the people we are talking to.[6]

In this book, David J. Schwartz, the author, talks about “Make Your Attitudes Your Allies.”

This book is a classic motivational and self-help book, which is similar to another motivational book – The Power of Positive Thinking. The legendary American football coach, and sportscaster – Lou Holtz mentions that this book helped him create his lifelong goals list.[8] As one reads each chapter, the reader gains an understanding of each chapter title/topic along with a brief excerpt from the author’s personal life. He also describes three failure diseases : excuse-itis, detail-itis and procrastination.[9] This book builds an individual’s confidence, mentality, vision of life and ultimately the ability to think big introspectively and extrospectively. In short, making better decisions and avoiding negative thoughts are benefits of reading this book.[1][10]

  1. You having these older videos up still and continuing to create new and engaging content is a fantastic thing. I'm sure I've listened to hundreds if not thousands of hours of your interpretations over these last few years and somehow (we know how), new opportunities have developed and even failures have become incredible steppingstones to a continuance of heightened successes. I feel like I haven't even gotten started, and I thank you kindly for doing what you do here, you're changing lives.

  2. Wow. I can tell you've been studying wisdom of the ages for a long time! You could become the new Jim Rohn. Keep up your good works. You're much appreciated. Thank you!

  3. Hey Joseph, listening here in Dublin, Ireland and I just so motivated by you. Is it possible to download those files in the link to a Mac – the files don't seem to be readily readable.

    Love your content man.


  4. Please make a new video about this book. I'm sure you have a lot of new valuable insights to add to this video. Just like you did with 'Think and Grow Rich' and 'The Power of Your Subconscious Mind'.
