CHANGE A POOR MENTAL INTO A RICH MENTAL
By. Fikhi Masjida Nugraha
Sun Tzu's philosophy
states to survive, a ruler must win in every battle. This is for the sake of
winning the war. If not winning the war means
destruction. In private life, this defense strategy can be applied in the form
of developing the mental attitude to be a winner. Mental attitude which asserts
that we dare to be successful. Because success my
right, your rights, our rights, and rights of every person.
Trouble is, faced with
many problems of life, there are many among us who actually are mentally poor.
Examples: live carelessly, no discipline, no responsibility, no confidence, not
daring to try, afraid to face challenges, not willing to learn or improve
themselves, violate state law and public order.
This is our personal battlefields today.
Defeat a poor mental attitude. Kill the mental poverty, failure and waste of
suffering. Winning the war we are successful. Lost the war, then we were buried
by the failure.
If we want to survive
in life, we must face the mental war between rich and poor mental. You
and I have to start fighting the mental defeat poverty. Start today. Ranging
from small steps each day.
Awaken the mind to win the mental fight
poverty. Achieving progress, success, and must fight for success. If we all
managed to quell the mental poverty, Indonesia is definitely rising!
I'll show you an
outstanding example of a figure who managed to beat the mental poverty. He
has repeatedly failed, but continued to rise, keep fighting, keep fighting poor
mental defeat, until finally achieving success.
About a character who
is so legendary in the war against poor mental. Our
hero was born in 1809. At the age of 7 years he and his family were expelled
from the house. Age 9 years old his mother died. Age
22 years, he failed in business. A year later failed in the election of
legislators. The next year he failed again in
business and spent 17 years of his life just to pay off mounting debts. But
our hero is not desperate. He fought with poor mental. Mental expelled easily
give up and despair.
Finally in 1834, he managed to be
elected as a member of the legislative council. But the failures and suffering like
never stop blocking step. A year later, her fiancé died. He suffered nerve pain and have to lay in bed 6 months
Our hero is again managed to defeat the
despair. Rose again. Seven years later, his life
filled with failure in the struggle to be a member of the legislative and
congressional elections. New in 1846, his perseverance in trying, trying, and
mental defeat poverty drove him as a U.S. congressman.
But, again the next ten
years, the life of the character is colored by the war in an attempt to defeat
the terrible mental collapse. He failed in the
board elections of the Congress. Denied a civil
defense council in the land of his birth. Failed in Senate elections. Failed in nomination as vice president. And in
1858, he failed again in the election of members of the senate.
If our hero is a
negative mental attitude, he would have committed suicide. But these great
leaders have the principle of "Do not you count how many times you fail,
but count how many times you get up!"
And in 1860, at the age
of 51, this great man elected as president of the United States. He was Abraham
Lincoln. This is a true example of poor mental warfare to defeat. If you want
to survive, kill mentally poor.
