- Negative thinking is a major problem because you got, you've got to get control of this. You actually can control what this does. No one else is in charge. If the devil is in charge, it's because you gave him permission you allowed him in. If God is operatin' up there, it's because you gave him permission. You allowed Him in. It's a very, listen to me, it's not a magic trick, man. If you want to be successful, you have to get control of this. Like I was tellin' her earlier, look, you can eradicate negative thinking from your life. Now it's gonna say you not gonna ever have a negative thought, that's not human. I have them, but I don't have them nowhere near as frequent as I used to cause I learned what they are, how they work.
I get rid of them, I don't have time for you. I'm on a positive track, I got things I'm tryin' to accomplish, I'm tryin' to be successful and I'm tryin' to be happy. If you're tryin' to be successful or happy, you have no room for negativity. The best way to mask yourself from negativity every morning, is to start with gratitude. I'm telling you man, it's a very simple process. There are some books that you can buy. There's Norman Vincent Peale's, The Power of Positive Thinking, it's a very old book, it's only in paperback. It's called The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. I read this book when I was 20. It started the process to changing my life. Then I read a book called The Magic of Thinking Big. It's by David Schwartz. This just trains you how to think big. You know, it doesn't take any more brain power to think big than it does small.
Big thinking gets rid of negativity. Dreams and visions gets rid of negativity. But you gotta remember man, that you operate. When you pray, God ain't the only one hear the prayer. The devil is listening too. So his job is to dissuade you, his job is to keep you off track. Devil ain't got but one job. He don't want you to be successful. He don't want you to discover your dream, he don't want you talkin' to God.
So he get busy, he get busy. He busy, man, he send people your way all the time. He all over the Internet, he all over social media. The devil got imps, he got people workin' for him all the time. All they do is just do what he say. Say somethin' funky about her, hey-eh. But you can control this part. Now, what you cannot do is bury yourself by using your success compared to other people. See, because here's the danger. Let me teach you this. Success is not how far you've got. Cause see, you're gonna be disappointed all the time cause somebody always further than you. So now you'll forever be disappointed. Success ain't how far you got. Success is how far you've got from where you started. That's your success. That's yours. You can be successful but if you constantly lookin' at somebody else, if I look at Oprah money, I start feelin' bad about me. Cause I ain't got Oprah money, Oprah got billion dollars, I don't have nowhere near no billion dollars.
