Success through a Positive Mental Attitude
Elie Bizimana (Rwanda)

This principle for success namely Success through a Positive Mental Attitude goes deeply about positive mental attitudes and contains more impressive message which directly make the readers to change more things in their life. The author gives clear understandable examples to show how a person can have positive mental attitudes.
Surely, after reading the previous book called “Keys to Success” I felt satisfied due to my recent limited understanding and analyzing level which changed after reading the next book. But after reading this book, I am ally surprised and excited because this book contains almost secret about maintenance of positive mental attitudes. By going deeply, I became a new one with creative vision and found to be mature than before in my mind. By then, I gained new skills of how I can think more and more over the available situations. And this made me to strengthen my future plans. As long as I inspired, I aimed to develop my philosophy and psychology capacity by making research to discover more than ever.

Testing your own success quotient and awaken the sleeping giant within you. Now it’s time to test your own success quotient. So what about your success quotient analysis? It’s like self check-up! Have you checked yourself? I asked myself this questions after reading this book contents. I found that this book is now with me in my journey to success. Success through a Positive Mental Attitude urges you to use the powers of your conscious and subconscious mind to: seek the truth, motivate you to take constructive actions, cause you to strive to achieve the highest ideals you can conceive, consistent with good physical and mental health, living intelligently in your society, help you abstain from that which will cause unnecessary injury, start you from where you are and get you to where you want to be regardless of what you are or what you have been.
Please, stop and think for yourself.

As long as I told it to many people including youngsters, youths and older ones even if some of them haven’t any valuable thing they do, their mindset is to attain development. Actually, this is not a miraculous understanding for some people to have big desire with no initiatives. And this causes some people to call them uselessness people, but this is not a good mental attitude. Through this book, I gained more about how I can change my world better with positive mental attitudes. And found that I will attain my goals as long as I develop my positive mental attitudes.

What Others Are Saying

Adeosun Oluwatosin Isaac (Nigeria)
My journey with International Institute For Global Leadership (IIGL) has been so fantastic, it has offered me great opportunities and insight into self-appreciation and how it can transform one’s life from ordinary to Extraordinary. The book “As a Man Thinketh” set my heart on fire and lay a very good foundation for me to look inward to see my inner beauty, the great talents and gifts bestowed on me. Thanks to Emmanuel Korede for the recommendation. Through this platform I have mastered the art of self-love and self-appreciation and this has geared me up in my responsibility to share happiness with others through inspirational teaching and mentorship. Our mind is capable of handling much more than what we are currently feeding it with. We are capable of breaking new grounds if only we can apply our mind to stay focused on things that will add value our lives and the lives of people around us. With the help of the materials I have read on IIGL platform I have consciously designed ways of feeding my mind with only rich contents and one of them is through investment on books, audios and tapes. I subscribe to channels to listen to great leaders who can motivate me to take highly productive actions in becoming my best.

What our Students are Reading

Getting to Resolution $12.50
Adversarial models for dealing with conflict waste time, money, and energy. They satisfy no one, so the conflict ends up resurfacing in a different form. Stewart Levine’s “resolutionary” alternative goes beyond compromise and capitulation. He offers ten guiding principles that stop anger and resentment cold and enable both sides to return to productive, satisfying, functional relationships. Levine’s seven-step conversational process fosters dignity and integrity, optimizes resources, and allows all concerns to be voiced, honored, and woven into the resolution. This second edition has been thoroughly revised with new examples; new tools; new material about communication, trust building, and virtual collaboration; and a more global outlook.

Meet Our New Students
Abdullahi Salad Hashi (Somalia)
In February 2007, I completed studying bachelor degree in accountancy at Somali Institute and Administration Development (SIMAD) in Mogadishu, Somalia. In 2015 I completed bachelor degree in public health at Salaam University in Mogadishu and also completed my Bachelor degree in education specializing in Math Physics. In 2007 I started working with my college called SIMAD as a librarian assistant and also worked with different NGOs, where I am still working with save the children international (SCI) as a finance officer. I am always tireless in seeking any learning opportunity like this. Though I’m glad to be back, I find I haven’t settled as well as I have in the past when I was younger. Since I was quiet when I was younger I attended meditation workshops. I don’t know what to say except I’d be delighted to be given this opportunity, I’ve always dreamed of an opportunity like this.

Make A Difference
Dream Team 22
Please join Dream Team 22 as our goal is to have 220 people contributing $22 per month. We understand that money is energy and that to sustain and build IIGL we need a lot of people pouring their energy into this endeavor on a regular basis. We also know that not everyone can afford to commit $22 a month – especially our students, who live in countries with economies in which this amount can be equal to a weeks’ salary. So we are offering two options for those who wish to become a part of the Dream Team. One can commit to a $22 a month contribution or to spending 22 seconds each day holding the vision of IIGL becoming financially sustainable by the end of 2018.

Will you join the Dream Team and help us create an energetic foundation to support the transformational work of IIGL? You can really make a difference in the world by making a modest contribution of time or money. To make the $22 a month commitment or a one time donation, click the link below.
