positive thinkingIn her intriguing essay on aeon.co, Gabriele Oettingen highlights the importance of “Doing” over just “Thinking positively.”

“Success” has never been a product of positive thinking. Success comes from knowing what you want and who you want to be. And when it comes to your personal finances, success comes from creating a workable plan, and then working diligently at that plan come hell or high water.

Success cannot be found in the dreaming. Success is only found in the DOING, so like the folks at Nike said: “Just Do It.”

Don’t take my word for it. Ask Benedict Cumberbatch. He agrees with me!
