Positive Attitudes

Here is a great article I found on how to maintain a positive attitude.  It was saved in a two year old email and the author was not identified.  If you know who the author is please let me know.
8 Ways To Maintain A Positive Attitude
There Is No Obstacle Too Great

1. Become mindful of your thoughts and let them occur without
judgment. As you recognize self-limiting beliefs and feelings,
eliminate them by focusing on positive thoughts about the present
and future.

It will lead you to contemplate potential losses rather than
effective solutions. The antidote to worry is positive action.

4. Adversity comes to each of us in time. Expecting rather than

strength to conquer each obstacle as you have conquered obstacles
in your past.

5. Assume that hidden in every setback there is a lesson.

future successes with the belief that you will achieve them, and
then take action. When you are working diligently toward a goal,
there will not be time to ponder the obstacles.

take a "time out" and do something that makes you happy. Letting
yourself be swept away in a favorite activity or meditation will
inspire well-being.

8. Be confident that no matter what adversity you face, you will
be strong enough to remain positive and optimistic. Knowing that
there is no obstacle you cannot overcome will give you that
