A lot of "systems" seem to say that some type of optimism is important to get rich... There are a lot of "techniques" full of "pro-optimism" activities - whether it's visualization, or reciting some kind of daily "mantra", or even writing things down and putting the bits of paper in jars...

What do you think? Do you have to be optimistic to be successful?

Or is it just a way to sell more books...?

I find that if I listen exclusively to talk radio while driving between appointments, I get all caught up in the news and politics of the day.

I discovered I'm much more positive and upbeat if I listen to "My" music during the drive time (at least when I'm not on the cell phone while driving). My music happens to be the original Big Band/Swing/Boogie Woogie music of the early 20th century, and some of the New Swing era musicians.

Chattanoog Choo Choo, Opus #1, and Jump, Jive, & Wail tend to put a little extra bounce in my step, and my productivity shows it.

I'm even listening to my music online (pandora.com) while posting here and other forums.

Give it a shot - try listening to "your" music prior to sales calls or phone calls and see if it doesn't give you a little "lift".
