thinking and would make people believe that they could do great things in life. Similar to chapter 6, the author once again discussed the importance of attitude. The right attitude would lead to the success in many aspects. Therefore, he advised people not to stop dreaming and setting high goals. In the following part, he divided people in the workplace into three groups, which are: - A group of those who completely surrendered: This group of people believes that they cannot do anything else to be successful in life and that others’ success are based on luck.
- A group of those who partially surrendered: This group of people used to dream high and used to set high goals when they were young. Unfortunately, after a few years of trying and working, they stop putting more effort and give up. They start fearing of failure, of social disapproval, and of losing what they currently have. Hence, they stay in their status quo. - A group of those who never surrender: this group includes people who are the most successful in life. These people never simply believe in luck and never let pessimism sink them down. They always find life encouraging, fascinating, rewarding, and worthwhile. These people are successful people and are having extremely high positions in the society. To fall into the third group, people should not only to believe in themselves but also never let negative-thinking people influence their plan and then destroy it. In addition, they should also seek advises from successful people. The author believe that these people are actually more accessible than expected. Advises from these people are more relevant than from petty people. The key point of the chapter is that people should “go first class”. It means they should choose first-class products to use, have relationships with first-class people, should select friends carefully, should seek advises from successful people. People should not waste their time with second-class products, or with hanging out with wrong type of people.
