A recent article released on the Leadership Traq website reveals that those with a negative outlook on life may find it impossible to establish the new skills needed to progress in their careers.

In his latest Leadership Traq article, Mick Ukleja exposes the real extent to which a human's own perception of themselves might hinder their journey to success, happiness and wealth. "Successful living is improved, in large measure, by having a powerful vision of the future," he explains, before describing how scars of previous experiences may cloud one's vision of the future completely, providing them little reason to experience new things, or establish new abilities.

"But as we age," Mick continues, "we begin to lose our natural ability to learn new abilities. We develop viruses in our thinking based on past experiences that impact our capabilities and lower our expectations." Mick lays out the correlative relationship between success and optimism by drawing comparisons between the life of a young child and the life of an adult impeded by negativity: "If children doubted they might ever walk, most of them wouldn't have," he suggests, before exposing that the only path to joy and advancement is to destroy the virus of negativity that takes control of our thoughts.

Author of the hugely successful "A Bug Free Mind" self-development program, Andy Shaw, has actually concurred with Mick. Official spokesman Peter Helm quoted Mr Shaw in a recent press conference, saying: "Bugs in the mind can hinder development, progress and determination, and can wear a once positive individual to just a shell of themselves. It's easy to succumb to bleak thoughts, and I'm sure the majority of us can relate to the battle with such thinking as, the last time you tried this, it didn't work, so why try again? With a bit of positive thinking, you can easily conquer this negativity and push through to attain the life that you've always dreamed of."

Andy Shaw's self-development program works to retrain the mind in order to remove negativity completely. Shaw remained to state: "Simple practices such as seeing the glass half full instead of half empty, and getting rid of negativity from your mind can have such a strong influence on every aspect of your life. Short, basic positive exercises will drain your brain of negativity and refill it with the positivism you need to be successful in life."

Critically acclaimed in over 130 countries worldwide, Andy Shaw's first 5 chapters are offered to download free of charge from his site, abugfreemind.com, where 100s of certified evaluations can additionally be seen backing the self development system known as "A Bug Free Mind".(http://www.abugfreemind.com/success/loa)
