What is an “inverse paranoid”?

Reading Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” again. Came across the famous William Clement Stone (May 4, 1902 – September 3, 2002). He was a businessman, philanthropist and New Thought self-help book author. I think he had one of the best new thought I have read this year.

Here is an excerpt from Jack Canfield’s book:

“My earliest mentor, W. Clement Stone, was once described as an inverse paranoid. Instead of believing the world was plotting to do him harm, he chose to believe the world was plotting to do him good. Instead of seeing every difficult or challenging event as a negative, he saw it for what it could be something that was meant to enrich him, empower him, or advance his causes.

What an incredibly positive belief!

Imagine how much easier it would be to succeed in life if you were constantly expecting the world to support you and bring you opportunity.

Successful people do just that.”

Don’t you love this? I do!
