People who are too concerned with how well they are doing will be less successful and feel less competent than those who focus on the task itself... Some psychologists call it a conflict between ego-orientation, or between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation... but in all cases, what counts is whether attention is turned away from the task at hand and focused on the self and its future rewards, or whether it is instead trained on the task itself. The latter attitude seems the more fruitful.

Positive attitude is meant to give you influence over your circumstances, rather than your circumstances having influence over you. In other words, it takes you and never anyone else to decide whether or not to override your unfavourable circumstances.

I mean, you've got to give thanks to him for what he's yet to do for you or rather you are meant to be thankful to God for your expectations that are yet unrealized. And believe you me. The very moment you imbibe an attitude of thanksgiving in anticipation. It stimulates him (God) to speedily respond or rather grant your expectations.
