At 15:03, the audio says: Everyone of us is the sum total of his own thoughts. He is where he is because that's exactly where he really wants to be, whether he'll admit that or not.

Do you guys agree with that?

I didn't watch the whole thing, but I think I got the gist of it. Positive thoughts lead to success.

I do like the definition of success, that it is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.

I think a positive context of mind does attract a positive reality. There is a certain obviousness about that. When the context of mind is positive, it will interpret reality more positively, and so even without getting into the mystical nature of reality or the law of attraction or similar idea, I can see how it all starts with positivity.

And yet, I don't think I can achieve a positive context of mind by trying to be positive. I think the optimal way to positivity is to face up to fears and negativity and release them. That's of course awakening. Which is a pretty good "worthy ideal." Which can be realized progressively.
