Accentuate the Positive

"To establish true self-esteem, we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives."

Dr. Denis Waitley


Saul's note:


I once took one of those "live in" human transformational seminars (Money and You with Marshall Thurber in the early 1980s), and one of the quotes that have stuck with me is "there are winners and learners." A losing experience is a learning experience.

 

This reminds me of one of my favorite songs (which I posted recently, Accentuate the Positive.

Take the time to read the lyrics and listen to Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers (1945)

(Listen to this song and it will lift your spirits...try it.)

 

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

 

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

 

To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark

 

Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between

 

Do you hear me?
Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear
About the elininatin' of the negative
And the accent on the positive
And gather 'round me children if you're willin'
And sit tight while I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right

 

You've gotta accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom, down to the minimum
Otherwise pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

  

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they say
Say when everything looked so dark

 

Man, they said we better accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, don't mess with Mister In-Between

 

Songwriters: Johnny Mercer / Harold Arlen
