wellness-285590_1280

The importance of “today” is highlighted in all five principles. Today defines your present. It teaches you to live each and every moment of the day completely –

Gratitude: Reiki encourages you to be thankful, receiving and giving the gift of the universe. Life has so many reasons to be thankful for- no matter how big or small. Even just the fact that another morning sunrise woke us up is enough reason to be thankful to our creator. You should be thankful about everything in your life- the good, the bad and the ugly. Being thankful breaks the cycle of misery.

No fear or worry : The principles of Reiki encourages you to trust the universe completely. They tell you to let go of yours fears and worries, make the best possible efforts and leave the rest in the hands of the universe(unconditional love). The moment you stop worrying, you demonstrate your faith on the absolute and the moment that demonstration happens, the power of Reiki descend on you and begin to support you.

 

Angry : This principle encourages you to stay away from anger, anger burns your positive energy. Reiki guides you to live a peaceful and quiet life- it simply means that you act with peace and understanding the situation you are in.

 

Honesty : Honesty towards your own self is extremely important. When you are not honest with your own self, you disintegrate. Your chakras start to fall out of alignment and you are not able to draw the right amount of power from your soul into your mind. Yoga/Reiki is about alignment and integration of all the chakra into this higher chakra and the first step to do this is by being honest to your own self.

 

Respectful of all living beings and kindness : Kindness towards others facilitates healing. When you interact with people, you learn some things, you share some good experiences, some bad experience- you need to respect people for all that they are teaching you. The flow of positive energy in all of us is collective. We are collective puzzle pieces of our Divine creator. He is in us. Reiki encourages you to nurture a sense of oneness and love. This respect also empowers you to see everybody as your extended self. So by learning to love oneself we also learn to love others and most especially the one who created us.

Let your mind visualize that the power you have to change your mindset.

The immense power to change/heal or re-program your brain to heal yourself and people around you.

The unlimited power that helps you unlock the secret to eternal happiness and bliss! Reiki heals by changing the disruption to energy flow, and rebalancing our energy fields with positive energy. A healthy human body is like a free-flowing river. When a river is flowing, there’s fish and wildlife in it. When it starts to stagnate and become blocked, fish die because there’s not enough oxygen.

 

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation and confidence that also promotes healing. One of the most beautiful things about Reiki is that it is natural and simple method of healing your own body through universal energy transfer.It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki can bring confidence into a person and benefits a person intensely. Reiki involves practical study and implementation, and is user friendly. Before you can start practicing the art of reiki to others, you must first be attuned. Attunement is the special, traditional ceremony that enables aspiring practitioners to connect to the divine source of energy. Reiki attunements can be attained in different levels, 1-3. You can do it at home, workplace and almost everything. It is said that once you become receptive to reiki, the gift of having this energy flow through your hands during your whole lifetime.Reiki is a gentle application and helps in body healing. Reiki energy brings higher frequency of energy, which limits our fears and makes us optimistic towards life.

When we are making use of Reiki in our daily life, the frequency of energy becomes higher. There is a change of state of mind while making use of Reiki energy. There is change in emotional and physical state of person with regular implementation of Reiki.

Completion Reiki Symbol :

The Raku (ray-koo) is the final symbol that you will learn when you become a Master in the Usui Reiki system of healing. It is also known as a fire serpent and represents your “Chi” or life force energy. It is drawn downwards from the head of the recipient to the ground, allowing the energy received during this process to remain inside the 7 chakras.

20160929_094548

During Reiki initiation session, all the above symbols will need to be activated. It is believed to symbolize a strike of lightening from the heavens, and is representative of the life force energy ( chi) that runs down the spine, through our 7 chakras. Reiki masters can choose various methods to activate the symbols depending on the intent that they are using the symbol for.

 

The Raku may also be used during healing sessions to ground the practitioner or the patient receiving a treatment. Once the symbol have been activated, they can be applied to specific areas of the body in order to create the desired impact. There are some practitioners that claim to be able to direct negative energy out of the body using the Raku symbol. This is not recommended unless you have properly trained in doing so. Directing energy in this manner can possibly have negative effects.

 

Once the attunement process is complete, you will begin to find a release from various ties that had bound you to your past behaviors. Testimonials range from tingling sensations to feeling energy waves rushing in their bodies to falling asleep. It is always best to allow the Intelligence of Reiki to remove any negative energy that may be sitting in the body, instead of taking the task on yourself.

You will now be considered at par with the group of individuals who utilize the power of Reiki to heal themselves, each other and the environment. There are many other symbols that can be used to help remove blockages that may be encountered during a healing treatment. You will be able to identify the source of your energy and in case you see this source as negative energy, you will be able to eliminate it.

 

It is not known where the Raku originated from, as it is not an original symbol that was taught by Usui  Once you begin with Reiki, you will also be amazed at the ease with which you are able to make changes to your normal routine. It is speculated that it’s origins are Tibetan, and that Reiki Master Iris Ishikuro (who was a student of Mrs. Takata ) incorporated the symbol into her Reiki Practice, which she named Raku Kei Reiki. It is believed that Raku-Kei is an Ancient Tibetan Healing Art of Self-Mastery, much like Reiki itself. The symbol and practice was brought to the West by Arthur Robertson, who was a student of Ishirkuro

 

This process (Reiki) opens the 7chakras in your body and establishes an exceptional connection between the reiki source (teacher, guru) and the student. Chakra means “Wheel” in sanskrit. The human body has hundreds of “energy wheels” but the main ones needed for reiki management and therapies are found within the body”s center from the head down to the base of the spinal column.

This process is monitored by the Rei or God- consciousness that helps in making adjustments in the process you may elevate sensitivity and you may experience intuitive awareness, opening of the third eye. After Reiki attunement Reiki stays with you through out your life. You will never lose it and it will never wear off.

The power that provides you with the magical ability to become your own spiritual doctor. The power that ensures ample healing energy runs through your hands and helps you ease your lack of confidence and mental stress. This healing energy typically flows through the practitioner”s body, hands and then in the body where their hands are touching to help eradicate disease and misery using the power of unconditional love.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

This blog will guide you to eternal happiness, success and healing by using one simple thing called love. Reiki is all about healing through compassion and unconditional love. Reiki is not about religion.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing

 

Reiki is a healing technique that utilizes the power of touch to heal your own self or heal others. Apart from healing reiki is also used as a method that helps you attain mental and physical balance.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

 

Reiki can also be defined as “the higher intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe” It is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, animate as well as inanimate. This subtle wisdom controls the development of the entire universe- ranging from the development of life on this planet to the unfolding of galaxies in the universe. Its presence guides you whenever you need it.

 

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student by teacher (guru). This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

 

Ki can be termed as the non-physical energy that is present in all living things. Ki flows in every living thing-including human beings, plants and animals. An individual feels strong and confident when he has a high Ki. A low Ki leads to a feeling of sickness and ill health. You receive this Ki from your food, air, sunshine and even sleep. You also have the potential to elevate the level of Ki in your body through specific breathing(pranayama) and meditation exercises (om). An individual”s Ki leaves his physical body at the time of his death. Ki is also known as “prama” in India “chi” in china the “Ti” or “Ki” in the Hawaiians. It is also referred to as the life force, vital energy force.

 

Its use is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds

Life force flows through us along pathways called chakras and meridians and surrounds us in a field of energy called our aura. This incredible life force is responsive to our thoughts and feelings and is disrupted when we take on, either unconsciously or consciously, negative feelings and thoughts about ourselves. These thoughts and feelings link to the energy field and disrupt the life force.

 

Studies have showed that negative thoughts or feelings attach themselves to our auras and energy fields and cause blockages. Reiki heals by changing the disruption to energy flow, and rebalancing our energy fields with positive energy. It raises the vibration level of the field around the physical body and causes the negative energy to fall away. Reiki restores the necessary flow of energy and the balance between our energy pathways.

 

Reiki works by allowing life energy to flow through the healer to the client. The secret to Reiki healing is that the practitioner transfers this healing energy directly in the patient by connecting him unshakably to the supreme universal energy. This energy moves from the healer into the recipient. The most usual experience is a feeling of peace and relaxation.

 

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, This energy is never depleted and is in fact utilized to heal and energize the healer. Another great thing about this energy is that it travels where it is needed most, implying that this is one of the most intelligent forms of energy that can never be misused or abused and naturally flows in the direction it is required to flow in.

Reiki is very effective for stress, anxiety and depression, it can definitely change your reaction to stress and life events! There’s a general improvement with Reiki so that people go from struggle and stress to living life more easily. In particular, people have found large improvements with self-confidence and self-esteem with Reiki.

Believe : Believe in yourself, believe in Reiki! Even if you are feeling terrible initially, your belief will help you get through. The emotional turmoil that you are going through may simply be necessary to open doors for better well-being.

How to meditate on 7 chakras

To meditate on chakras you need to find a quiet and secluded place. Sit in Sukhasana and close your eyes. Visualize white, cool, peaceful light originating from top of your head and cleansing all seven chakras one by one. Let warmth, peaceful, unconditional love light cleanse all your chakras. Visualize the light healing all your chakras.

After you have completed this meditation, imagine yourself being encircled by white light from head to toe. This pure unconditional love acts as an energy shield that is going to protect you from any negative energy that might block the flow of energy in 7 chakras.

Take a few deep breaths and open your eyes slowly and come out of the meditative state knowing that Reiki energy is flowing through all your chakras and will keep you healthy on all levels.

Hand positions for healing.

A Reiki treatment consists of the practitioner placing his or her hands on the clients body having only the intent for the energy to flow. It is all about transfer of energy from the master to the recipient through use of hands. There is no complicated rituals to perform. It is therefore important to learn the various hand positions used to treat individuals using Reiki energy.

According to Reiki teachings, the Reiki energy is smart for it knows where to go and what to do. The hand positions used in the West are different from the traditional Reiki. The Reiki practitioner is instructed to allow the energy to flow, without directing the energy.

Different hand positions are used to treat your own self and to treat others. Many times the practitioner must place their hands very near (or on) body parts most consider to be private (genitalia) Each practitioner has their own way to handle this. It’s good to inform the client and ask permission before the session so that there’s no surprises. There are a couple ways to work in these areas without directly touching the clients body and without compromising the healing session. (the distance healing symbols can be used.)

All you have to do is take a walk a few times a week, and you’ll see benefits. Beyond the postural imbalances, muscle tensions and day-to-day energy demands, the ability to be physically available to your day’s requirements is crucial. Today, we’re looking at some important benefits of exercise with respect to physical confidence and how it can go a much longer way.

sense of Achievement: Whenever you exercise your personal worth increases because it gives you a feeling that you have done something rather than sitting passively and brooding over issues. exercises improves our postures. posture doesn’t just reflect your level of confidence, insecurity, or anything else. Instead, your posture sends messages to your brain that tell you how to feel. If you need to feel confident, you want your posture to send your brain that message. Right postures gives confidence.

Maybe because it doesn’t think in ways of approval and rejection there’s no problem. It is just driven and focused on getting the job done. When we grow older it is mainly removing a limiting way of thinking that uncovers all our power and unstop us from growing to our unlimited possibilities.

Yoga and Confidence

Before we start discussing more thoroughly about how yoga can strengthen your self-confidence, let us first talk about just what exactly is yoga, and how it is performed. Yoga originated from ancient India, yoga is a belief that a man”s mind, body and spirit should work in harmony, but the monks didn’t introduce it to the West until the late 18th or 19th century. In Sanskrit, which is the ancient language of India, ‘yoga’ basically means ‘union’. This is due to the fact that yoga aims to unify the mind, spirit and body.

It was discovered 5,000 years ago. It was developed to show the appreciation for the body. Ancient yogis believed that the body should be treated well and respected because it is the main medium for man”s growth and work, yoga has six forms. These are breathing, meditation ,exercise devotion, self control and service.

Most people now a days are more interested in yoga as a form of exercise. Yoga offers a profound sense of physical and psychological well being. On the other hand, there is also another word derived from Sanskrit that perfectly describes yoga, which is ‘asana’. Asana is the execution of different physical poses or postures. Many are practicing yoga because it is proven to help calm the mind, reduce stress, relieve pain and lose weight (which most often translates to an increase in confidence.)

A lot of individuals who haven’t dabbled with yoga think that this discipline is just all about stretching. But yoga is about more than just stretching. Its about creating balance in body and mind, and joining the two together and bringing them into close communication.

Some who are not familiar with yoga think that it is an exercise composed of poses that are also impossible to do. In particular, the popular perception associate yoga with a system of bendy, twisty, physical movements and positions.

In other words yoga is a lot more than that. Yoga is more on creating a way to balance the body by enhancing your strength and flexibility, it is not only the body that gains benefits from this practice, but also the mind.

Oftentimes we find ourselves in a situation where we feel like we just don’t want to stand out from the crowd for fear of being ridiculed. We lack confidence because of it we lose many good opportunities in life. If you’re wondering on how yoga can greatly help you enhance and strengthen your self-confidence, here are some explanations

Recent scientific research into the effects of yoga on the body and mind have shown that these physical practices have enormous benefits for physical and psychological health. They can help you to lose weight, tone muscles, treat a number of medical problems, improve your flexibility and posture, keep your muscles relaxed and supple, regulate your appetite, etc. They also decrease the all too common psychological sufferings and mindfulness and boost your mood and brain power overall. Thanks to the breathing exercises of yoga, more oxygen can enter your muscles, thus providing your muscles with more vigor.

Yoga can help you understand more your mind as well as your body. With yoga, you will become more aware of your limitations, as well as your potentials.

Just the act of going to a yoga class can boost our self-confidence. It sends such a positive message to our hearts and minds that shows we care about ourselves. This alone can elevate our opinion of ourselves.

As we start to build our physical strength and work our way into more challenging poses, we feel stronger on the inside. And balancing yoga poses become easier the more we practice, showing us that we’re capable of changing and growing. Many are hesitant about practicing yoga not just because it appears to be painful and uncomfortable but also it involves a lot of poses.

The warrior pose (Virabhadrasana I, ii, iii )

Beginner”s Tip.

To help you stay in this pose, perform it near a wall. Stand with your back to the wall, a few inches away from the wall. Adjust your position relative to the wall so that when you bend into the position, your tailbone just touches and is supported by the wall.

Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana)

This pose can be challenging for a mind full of self-doubt. But on the flip side, it can quickly help to build self-confidence—and it can also be a lot of fun!

One leg is bent forward while the other is extended behind you. Your fingers touch the floor and your back and neck are arched upward.

The position of the body is mostly the same here. From equestrian pose, lift your hands from the floor and bring your palm together in front of your chest. Then stretch the arm high above your head and arch them backwards. Hold that position briefly, then again bring the fingers down to the floor in equestion pose before proceeding to the next pose.

yoga-597688_1280

Beginner”s Tip

Many beginning students have difficulty touching the floor with their lower hand, even when resting it on the fingertips. These students should support their hand on a block. Start with the block at its highest height and, if your balance is steady and comfortable, lower it down first to its middle height, then finally if possible to its lowest height

or

Keeping your front knee aligned, press your front foot down into the floor, and resist it to the right, as though you were trying to turn your front foot out, but can’t because it’s stuck to the floor.

Keep that, and press your back foot against the wall, and resist up, as though someone was trying to push your back thigh down and you were resisting against them (your foot and leg won’t actually move, you’re just resisting).

Maintaining this dual resistance (pressing down and resisting out with the front foot, and pressing back into the wall and resisting up with the back foot), you might even find that you’re so stable that you can not only extend your top arm up, but you might even be able to lift your bottom hand away from the block!

Boost your confidence with music

Use uplifting music.

A classic. Use inspiring and motivating music to pump up yourself before leaving for an important day, before a big test or meeting, before anything that might make your confidence unstable. This works pretty well as a temporary state-booster. Music is a fantastic way to boost your self-confidence as you can listen to it whenever you need a quick boost of confidence.

Singing is also a powerful way to boost your self-confidence. It doesn’t matter how good or talented you are, the process of singing has a range of benefits. As well as helping to boost self-confidence, singing has many benefits to other areas of your life. The benefits are enormous and you, too, can use singing to boost your self-confidence.

Excellent music will energize you and helps you to forget your problems and worries, which is important when facing the challenges of your life!

Using musical instruments to establish a foundation of confidence will strengthen a persons music abilities and desire to play, but it also affects many aspects of his/her personal and professional life. This multidimensional effect stems from the ups and downs of acquiring a new skill, learning with peers and recognizing successes. Even if the notes aren’t played properly every time, music can be a big confidence booster for a person.

Just about anyone can sing, all you need is a voice. If you can talk, you can sing, regardless of how well you do it. Most children sing, therefore the physical capability is there. Children don’t worry about how they sound, they just enjoy it. By the time we become adults, many of us are conditioned to be overly critical, and even ashamed of our voices. Many people even fear singing. Why can’t adults be more like children?

img_0010

We are all born with very high self-confidence, but often it is gradually eroded by emotional trauma of varying degrees. People grow up and get the shine knocked out of them. Have you noticed that most children seem to bounce into this world with a really hefty amount of self-esteem? Really. If you”ve ever chatted to a kid about their crappy crayon drawing or pasta art, you”ll immediately see that there”s no pretend humility, no self effacement. Just pride and confidence. Ask them what they want to be and they”ll tell you “a unicorn trainer”.

How Singing Boosts Self-Confidence

Singing has a range of physical and mental health benefits. Singing is great for your self-confidence because:

  • It helps to release your stress inhibitions and it gives you the freedom to be yourself. And happy
  • It’s very personal and a way of nurturing yourself as a person and you also will enjoy it

Mastering a musical instrument will foster a persons sense of pride, confidence and self-worth. The benefits of music don’t just stay in the music classroom Even if the person experiences a rough start to this musical journey, each new skill he/she acquires or musical piece he/she plays well will be rewarding. As a person learns to read and play music on her/his instrument, not only will she/he be increasing her/his knowledge base and competence level in music, but her/his competence may improve, her/his problem-solving skills will be strengthened and her/his ability to stay on task will improve, With this may come a new sense of purpose that banishes boredom, doubt, negative personal thoughts and feelings of aimlessness. His/her self-esteem will also be strengthened as he/she learns to coordinate his/her fingers and body to play the instrument properly, read the music and executes the notes to create a pleasing sound.

Self Efficacy and Confidence

 

Self efficacy is the strength of your beliefs in your ability to complete tasks successfully.

“It should be noted that the construct of self-efficacy differs from the colloquial term “confidence.” Confidence is a nondescript term that refers to strength of belief but does not necessarily specify what the certainty is about.

woman-1521111_1280

Whether you will persist or give up while working on a specific task – How long you will stick to uncomfortable changes designed to bring long term results (quit smoking, weight loss,positive thinking mindset) I can be supremely confident that I will fail at an endeavor. Perceived self-efficacy refers to belief in one’s capabilities, that one can produce given levels of attainment.
What goals you”ll set for yourself and where “extremely difficult” ends and impossible starts. A self -efficacy assessment, therefore, includes both an affirmation of a capability level and the strength of that belief.

 

The beliefs you have about your abilities shape your entire life. They effect how you think, feel and behave. Self-efficacy refers to subject’s behaviors (i.e.: it’s the subject’s judgment about his own ability to follow a needed or desired course of action); self-confidence has a lesser precise definition, implying a person’s trust on a wider range of own resources or strengths.

 

If you have little self-efficacy, you will have a tendency to write off things you consider impossible. Self-confidence lead to self-efficacy, or we can say there is a direct correlation between the two factors. On the other hand, self-efficacy is related to other factors too, such as: the difficulty of the task, the subject’s abilities and so on.

 

If you don”t believe you are able to achieve your dreams you will live a medicare life instead of realizing your full potential. When the word self-efficacy is heard, it is often understood as self-confidence by many people. Self-confidence is not the same as self- efficacy.Its important to note that self-efficacy is task related you can have high self-efficacy in a particular task and low self efficacy when working in another task.

img_0054

Self-confidence is defined as a trust or assertion in oneself, believing in one’s aptitude, making a choice which maybe referring to a general context or to a specific event or doings. Some people recognize self-confidence as self-assurance.

 

Self efficacy develops during childhood. The right parent/teacher/family can help to develop a powerful belief in their abilities that will empower them in their adult life.

 

self-efficacy can be defined as the capability to attain the required outcome. Speaking of perceived self-efficacy generally means that the person has a lot of faith in his or her aptitude that the wanted outcome can be achieved.

Those with self-efficacy tends to have higher level of desire, higher obligation and are also able to restore themselves after facing with failure better than those with poorer height of self-efficacy

 

Self efficacy                                            v/s                             low self efficacy

Consider challenges as something they can over come Avoid challenges (consequently they rarely grow)
Obstacles don”t make them lose confidence in their abilities. Difficult goals are beyond their capabilities and thus they don”t achieve big goals.
Take responsibility for their failure and believe they control the outcome (not believe in getting lucky) Quickly lose confidence in their abilities and give up on their goals.
Put more effort to complete the task Have narrow view (no big picture)
They set goals and develop deeper understanding of it They don”t believe in their abilities but on external factors like luck.

 

People with higher levels of self-efficacy tends to view heavy responsibilities as challenge to be tackled other than viewing it as danger or risk that has to be stayed away from at all times. If you don”t believe in your abilities you are not likely to set big goals that have the highest chance of making a dramatic improvement in your life.

What if reading this changes everything ?

Don”t waste any more time, failure may be fact of life, but no one has to suffer from it any longer. You know deep down inside that there”s more to life than what you experience every single day. Perhaps right now there is something that does not quite click/match. There may be a feeling that the current circumstances of our lives look like we are trapped,
and we can’t do anything about it. Do you feel stuck ? Do you feel like your life will never change ? Do you ask yourself the same questions over and over again, without getting answers ? Do you feel static, trapped, confused, stressed and frustrated ? If you want to make a change in your life, it’s never too late. Life can be mean, hard and sad sometimes.
Even then, it’s important to remember that this happens for a reason.

 

Some people seem to think that self development and power of positive thinking is just a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. Self improvement is indeed a process of growth, but it is also a process of healing. Failures are not foredoomed.You feel like you can put an end to the unhappiness, sadness, depression, frustration, anxiety… and you want to move forward. Without openness, there is no room for growth. How can we expect to plant a new seed in the garden that is our mind if we’ve made no room for it ?i.e (delete negativity first to make space for positive thoughts) You’re not alone. I’ve been there. I’ve experienced feeling stuck, struggling to understand myself and what I wanted from life. Often, the root cause of feeling stuck is a lack of confidence. So how can you become more confident ? How can you stop feeling overwhelmed and start finding purpose and achieve goals.

Success does not just happen! It is governed by positive thinking. If you know them, and apply them, the happy result, in the end, is assured. Lot of people don”t think that we can influence our own brain and lead a better life. It is not easy but not impossible. We all want to grow and constantly seek to improve our self and be a better human being. But you always thought that what the people will think of me. The city is always neutral, honestly doesn’t care one way or the other whether the new ideas lives, dies, suffers, or thrives. And you were worried that trying something new might make you look dumb or that your business might not make any money. What the fuck is wrong with you ? Stop being a pussy
and go do something amazing. We already have all the tools we need to improve ourselves deep within. In a way, we are already complete! If we’re alive, we’re able. If we’re alive, we’re powerful.

 

I am passionate about self-improvement, realization, enlightenment, being awake .Their is always a scope to improve. Every individual was put on this Earth for a PURPOSE! Every person was put here to Succeed. Every human ought and have every right to enjoy the sweet taste of success— to find peace and happiness— to live an interesting, secure and abundant life! Their is always a scope for better performance in every aspects of life.There is never an end to the journey of self improvement

If you want to be awesome in this life, do awesome things. If you want to be a leader, do some leading. If you want to be an expert, do the things like an expert does. If you want that next level, take it. Take it for yourself. Create an event. Champion a cause. Build something great. Speak your mind. Make the call. Build the business. sing a song or dance or Author the book. Join yoga classes. Send the email. Learn new things, be proactive. Do it. Do it. Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. If you fail, big deal. You might write something and nobody might read it. You might build it and nobody
might come.you might sing no one hears or dance for yourself. You could fail and ruin your life or learn something new. You could take a chance and end up looking really, really stupid. It doesn’t matter. As I gain more and more knowledge and start to think like wise human being, I realize that there is so much to know, so much that I have to learn yet. The human potential is limitless, so it’s impossible to reach a point of omnipotence (no growth). the possibilities for our growth are endless.

 

“I love the characters not knowing everything and the reader knowing more than them . There”s more mischief in that and more room for seriousness, too .”
“Anne Enright”

 

How many times have we told ourselves that “I’m going to be more organized and productive from now on wards.”?(specially on new year day 1st jan) Or that I am going to make a real effort to work hard Only to have that enthusiasm fade away, and all our best intentions come to nothing ? followed by frustration, depression, victimization, inaction or giving in to temptations, followed by guilt of giving up or surrender to temptations. I just can’t seem to keep a promise I make to myself. Blaming the circumstances.

 

There are so many things in our life that we want to perform better, excel and improve, but for some reason we keep falling short of our own expectations and fail to succeed, excel or stick to our plans. Why is that ? Why is that happening ? Why do you feel like we are the victim of circumstances and our negative thought telling us that “ You don’t have what it takes to be successful”.

 

There is a lot about you that is wonderful and good, and there are a lot of thoughts that you have that are reasonable and healthy. You should focus on these instead of focusing on the negative self talk that makes you feel bad or bully yourself too much. In every cloud, you have to seek the silver lining and do your best to figure out if there is anything that you can take away of value from the situation that you’re in. It literally sucks the motivation soul out of you and you feel frustrated, depressed, lonely and ask to god “Why me ‘? If we constantly repeat negative statements to ourselves, we’ll eventually believe them, even if they aren’t true! Good habits can be harder to adopt when there are many bad habits.

 

Most of us know that there are health benefits to thinking positively, When we switch our minds to a state of positive thinking, we begin to realize that there are far more blessings in our lives than there are curses. Positive people have a tendency to stay dedicated to their goals and believe that their success is inevitable. Over the course of time, scientists have discovered that positive thinking can increase our lifespan. That is something that most people thrive to achieve, and something that can be accomplished with a lot more ease than most of us might believe. If you’re going to let your mind wander, why not
imagine a positive outcome ? Believe the best will come to you. You deserve the best. Believe it will happen. Optimism can help us to avoid pessimism and overall improve our level of  confidence/satisfaction in life.

 

Positive thinking helps us to move forward and examine what is right about our lives and appreciate that, rather than being miserable about what might be wrong. We stopped losing sight of what we should be grateful for and instead focus on the things that we want and don’t have. With the help of positive thinking, we will empower ourselves to begin to work on the things that we find negative about our lives and come to a constructive and satisfying conclusion about them.

Another good and easy way to help deal with the negative emotions is by learning some relaxation techniques like meditation. Many people have found benefits from yoga, and these types of exercises have been able to seriously reduce the risk of high cholesterol in middle-aged people. (I will write about yoga in detail in my next blog.) Most people forget that there is a link between our mental state of mind and our physical state of mind. How the body feels is how the mind will feel, and vice-versa.”Train your mind to see things differently and align yourself with the truth.”

 

“Everything you need is already inside you, you were wired to survive and succeed

 

The problem is that we tend to try to better/improve/excel ourselves all at once we all want to succeed fast or become rich overnight this is the age of instant coffee instant  everything ?, always remember “Rome was not built in a day, but they were laying bricks every hour.” concentrate on one important thing at a time, Set a small, realistic and achievable goal. The idea is that you can take small steps and reap great rewards. It sounds safe, not risky. Don’t go into a giant dream without thinking about how you can break that dream down into smaller goals that are reasonable that you can accomplish in a reasonable amount of time. So if you’re struggling to do the big task at once, do something about it, take action. Chunk it into a little part. Bite by bite. One thing at a time. Reward yourself on achieving small goals. Recognize your progress.

 

You must be willing to keep walking, even if you don’t reap rewards immediately. Focus yourself on one little task at a time. Feel the little accomplishment you’ve made. Be proud of yourself. If we focus most of our energy on daunting tasks that we don’t value enough, we’ll end up very exhausted and unable to achieve as much as we want to . Therefore create a list of priorities then focus. It is easy to set goals in our minds, but what is difficult is achieving them.

 

If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” Barack Obama

 

Many people think that success needs to happen overnight, and when it doesn’t, they stop believing in themselves. Get moving, a bit at a time Once you get going, momentum builds up and the task becomes achievable. So the key is to get started, and you do that not by trying to go at once but by trying to go from small achievable goals in a day or two. That’s possible. It’s all about baby steps. A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step so…. Once you get going, you’re ready. Be patient great things take time and empires are not built in a day. Have a goal-setting approach— Dream, Plan, Reach. Recognize the power of dreams. Organize tasks on the basis of priority. Make smart goals.

 

“Take the first step in faith, you don”t have to see the whole staircase just take the
first step”. Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.

 

You are motivated. Nothing can stop you. You have decided that you will win this time no matter what ? And when you are just about to start improving yourself or building something big, that voice in your head appears…It is that manipulative negative voice that tries to doubt and downgrade and pull every plan or task you want to accomplish. “You don’t have what it takes to win” because everyone will deal with negative emotions at some point of their life, you may be prone to a meltdown more powerful and intense than you might anticipate. We are trained by society to doubt our own capabilities. Most of us have a very critical inner voice telling us that we are not good enough and that we are never going to accomplish the things that we think we would like to. All of us are much more prone to self-doubt then we are to confidence, whether this is because of society, our upbringing, or our own inner monologue.Is it really possible to pull yourself out of this low-confidence cycle? Yes! It’s absolutely possible.

 

It literally sucks the motivation soul out of you. Something we really have to understand is that it is okay if we never succeed the first time. It is even okay if we don’t succeed the second or third time. What makes a failure is if we stop and we give up trying to learn something that is difficult for us. All that motivation built up inside is obliterated by that little negative voice and if you don’t defeat it, it will trap you as a slave for the rest of your life. Negativity is a slow killer, while positive thinking can help us to improve our longevity and stay happier and healthier for a long time. So, how do you defeat/win
that manipulative voice in your head that undermines your capabilities ? So how to have a positive attitude in life . How to erase the negative thinking the hurdle that we humans have developed for centuries. How to think out of the box. How to train our brain to think positive always. Never assume that you’re stuck forever and it’s impossible to get what you want. Life changes, and so can you.It’s all about finding peace within yourself and changing your perception of differences and change in the world around you. If you feel tension or disagreement, it is most likely caused by your ego.

 

You have to remember that failure is very subjective and if you do not believe that you are a failure then you never will be. The power of positive thinking is unbelievable, and when you believe in yourself there is nothing that can stop you from achieving the goals you have set for yourself in your mind.The majority of us live with a deep unconscious belief that the environment controls us. “He who says he can, and he who says he cannot, are both usually right.” When we feel powerless, it is because we place our power of decision on something external. We don’t recognize it as our own. It’s almost as if we don’t want to be responsible for it! Don’t use the word fail. Use the word learn. That will help you
to change your perspective from being a negative thinker into a positive one, and ultimately that can help you to change your life for the better. Trust in your qualities and judgments. To be self-confident is to feel secure from within, to believe in yourself and your abilities.

 

img-20160314-wa0012

 

No ‘failure’ is ever complete failure! That is, failure does not equal defeat unless we allow it to be so . Failure and defeat are two vastly different things. Failure is not doing something right in the moment. Defeat is completely ceasing our efforts because of it. What determines which of them actually happens is not the circumstance, but how we choose to perceive it! Failing should not be a discouragement away from our goals or our journey of inner growth. Failure of any magnitude should be treated as what it really is: a learning experience – a stepping stone to furthering ourselves. The moment we stop seeing it this way is the moment we accept defeat. If a thought comes up that says “You really failed,” convert it to “Now I know for sure what I did wrong, I have learned something great!” “Nothing happens by accident, but I’m happy this is happening, because it’s a lesson I came here to learn.

 

“Everyone has the capability to become successful its about rising above those who
tell you that you can”t even if that person is yourself” (Danny Postawa)

 

How about self hypnotizing and change all our negative thought to positive. I am going to write about self hypnotizing in my next blog, but for now, Your thoughts are very powerful. As the Bible says in Proverbs 23: 7, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Meaning, whatever you think about, you will become. Positive thinking works because it can help us to rewire the neural pathways in our brains so that we are no longer addicted to negative emotions and thoughts. Most of us have already heard of positive thinking, and it seems pretty self-explanatory. However, it is a lot more complex than it might
seem. Our mind is like a garden, whatever we put into it, we will reap and we will harvest. If we put positive things into it, in due time we will reap positive rewards. If we put negative things into it, we will then reap negative consequences. As the Law of Attraction suggests, “Like attracts like.”

Positive thinking entails a large amount of work before it can truly begin to change your life. But I think this work is fun work, and it can be easy work. we can prove to ourself that we can Succeed by Accomplishing the Tasks that we have set and how we are going to do it. Everyday when you wake up, write 3-5 goals or tasks that you must accomplish before going to bed that night. You don’t have to set major goals that is impossible to accomplish within a day. Be realistic. No matter what, by the end of the day, you would have to accomplish all these goals. If you don’t, you are teaching your brain that you can’t win at even minor tasks. As a result, don’t come up with daily goals that are difficult to accomplish, Unrealistic, not possible to do within a day. You have to make sure that you can in absolute certainty perform and accomplish the goals. Confidence is something you create within yourself by believing in who you are.

 

“Don”t wait until you have reached your goal to be proud of yourself be proud of
every step you take toward reaching that goal”

 

First Build Discipline. You will never always be motivated you have to learn to be disciplined. Discipline is the utmost important quality if you want freedom from that annoying little negative voice of yourself. Work hard, wake up early perform tasks on time don”t postpone. Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret choice is yours. Discipline means that you do what it takes to succeed at the goal you set yourself, whether or not you like the path to that goal. Discipline is doing what you know needs to be done, even when you don”t want to do it. Read/Watch About Other People Succeeding At their Goal, but it does work When you see other people succeed at their goal, you will
have the benefit that you get motivated and most Importantly…you can replicate their success. No habit can be formed without consistency! At the same time, no new ‘mindset’ can be adopted without consistent practice. Consistency in our actions is what keeps the habit as is. Whatever we do repeatedly over time affects who we become!

 

“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment”. “Jim Rohn”

 

Succeed :Yes, it is not as easy as is said. Success is not one time thing it is a habit and a way of life Succeeding requires a lot of effort by you. A successful man/women is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. The first law of success, I repeat, is to fix the right goal. The right goal will arouse ambition. Ambition is more than mere desire. then comes the preparation to achieve that goal. From identifying your goal then you have to know your strengths, weakness, opportunities, threats and to coming up with the perfect plan for capturing that goal, it requires will-power to succeed at major tasks. Success is 99% attitude and 1% aptitude. Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. It is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced everyday. Every failure is a stepping stone to success.

 

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal it is the courage to continue that counts .”
Winston Churchill”.

 

Be accountable. Laziness, the second culprit, We all get lazy from time to time and there’s nothing wrong with that.You must move, no matter what. You don’t have to find the cure to AIDS today. Just find something simple that needs to be done and do it. The best antidote for laziness is putting one foot in front of the other. Don’t listen to the little voices in your head that whisper, I’ll start tomorrow.Ignore the equally damaging voices that whisper, “I should have done this three months ago.” Just go.Don’t think. Do. But to beat laziness, we must apply a bit of pressure, in the form of accountability

 

20160307_113740

 

Wherever you find a problem, you will usually find the finger-pointing of blame and victimization. Society is addicted to playing the victim. If only I hadn’t been born so poor…If only my wife/husband was more understanding…One of the reasons that people feel like they fail in life is because of a focus on the external. You are not a product of your circumstances you are a product of your decisions. Maybe the statement “If I had X, I’d be happy,” or “When I am at Z point in my life, I will feel fulfilled” Blaming everyone and everything else for our problems and challenges may be the norm and may provide temporary relief from the pain, be humble enough to accept and take responsibility for his/her circumstances and courageous enough to take whatever initiative is necessary to creatively work his or her way through or around these challenges, and I’ll show you the supreme power of choice. Think that “I am the creative force of my life.” “We are the masters of our own destinies”

 

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the
seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” Jim Rohn

 

Accept responsibility for your actions. Be accountable for your results. Take ownership of your mistakes. Being accountable to yourself and others around you is a tactic that many miss when trying to improve themselves. It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable. Personal responsibility: two words that will give you the key to success. You are responsible for everything you do in life.

Let your friends and family, your social networks, and sometimes even your work buddies know about the change you are making. You either make yourself accountable or you will be made accountable by your circumstances. This will help you become more serious about your daily change, and could even prove to be a benefit for others around you as they may decide to join you in the topic that you have chosen. It’s not a bad thing to have a workout buddy! If you truly want to change, you must start by looking in the mirror. It takes courage to take personal responsibility. It would be much easier to blame someone or something else for your problems or shortcomings.

 

“More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren”t so busy denying
them”.

 

Motivate yourself by reading books. Books are concentrated sources of wisdom. Just like any parts of the human body, our brain need some exercise and vitamins that we need. Have you ever experience not eating anything for a day ? You will feel weak. Same with our brain. Reading stimulates brain. The more books you read, the more wisdom you expose yourself to some books you can start reading to enrich yourself ? books makes things happen from “I can”t do it” to yes “I can” or stop from wishing, to start doing .Some books I’ve read and found useful . If reading is a habit you’d like to get into, there
are a number of ways to cultivate it.

 

First, realize that reading is highly enjoyable, if you have a good book. Start asking question to yourself that “what did you do today to bring you one step closer to your goal “ There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate”s loot on treasure island. Make your reading time your favorite time of the day If you have a boring book and you are forcing yourself through it, it will seem like a chore. If this happens for many days in a row, consider abandoning the book and finding one that you’ll really love. Other than that, try these to cultivate a lifetime reading habit: Reading is to the mind what exercise is
to the body.

 

“Never give up, go over, go under, go around, or go through but never give up”.

 

Be active always. Lead active life styles. The first step in discovering your capabilities is to try new things. You have no idea what you are capable of until you try. Learn new things for example learn new language. A misconception that many people have is that confidence is something that is inborn: either you have it or you will never be able to enjoy that feeling in your entire life. In reality, confidence is a skill that can be learned, just like a new language. It simply points out that you don’t have to be brilliant in everything in order to learn new language or be successful in life. Research has proved
that kids who are exposed to many languages at young age grows up to become a smart person because some parts of the brain get activated. Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between people’s abilities with words and range of vocabulary and with success in their chosen fields. People who can express themselves clearly are perceived as more intelligent and of higher status.

Learning something new requires you to stretch yourself in different aspects, whether physically, mentally or emotionally. Even working hard is not enough. With the dizzying rate of change in technology and increasing competition driven by the globalization of markets and technology, we must not only be educated, we must constantly re-educate and reinvent ourselves. We must develop our minds and continually sharpen and invest in the development of our competencies to
avoid becoming obsolete. There will always be something to be learned; a new truth to recognize.

 

Take up a new course. Continuously educate yourself. Courses are a great way to gain new knowledge and skills. Knowledge is power. Search for clues that might lead to your hidden talents.

Birds build nests— by instinct. No one teaches them how. The newborn calf does not have to be taught how to walk. Humans have to learn, or be taught. Humans have to learn to walk, to talk, to eat or drink. We learn about electricity, laws of physics and chemistry. Then we can go further, and learn to appreciate literature, music, art. We learn to fly higher, farther and faster than any bird. But we have to learn— to study — to be educated— to be prepared for what we propose to do. One of the first things we need to learn is— that we need to learn! Most people fail to set any definite goals. Having no specific aims, they neglect the specialized education to make possible the attainment of their purpose. Humans know nothing at birth! We have to learn! We have to educate ourselves to succeed. The entire system of education in this world neglects to recapture the true values. The basic and most essential knowledge— the true values, the meaning and purpose of life, the way to peace, to happiness and abundant well-being— these basics are never taught.

 

“Keep going . Every thing you need will come to you at a perfect time” .

 

Hang some inspirational quotes in your rooms. Your environment sets the mood and tone for you. If you are living in an inspirational environment, you are going to be inspired every day. Read those inspirational quotes everyday, morning afternoon evening before going to bed. Implement those quotes in life and reinforce them regularly in your mind. In the past, I used to read those inspirational quotes and forget it but since I read it many time in a day now a days those quotes motivates me always.

Yes,“You can get through this”.

 

Overcome your fears. We all have fears. Everything you”ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear. Fear of uncertainty, fear of losing our dear ones, failure, rejection, public speaking etc. Transform fear into action. With awareness comes knowledge of our pain and our deeply ingrained fears. Fears are stories we tell ourselves. Don”t let fear control your life learn how to overcome your fears. Fear is the brains way of saying that there is something important for you to overcome. So many people today are gripped with a sense of fear. They fear for the future. They feel vulnerable in the workplace. They are afraid of losing their jobs and their ability to provide for their families. Everything you”re running
away from is in your mind. Recognize that fear and conquer it. I always think of fear as my weakness and there is still an issue to face as long as you don”t address that fear it becomes difficult to grow.

 

“Forget everything and run or face everything and rise its your choice”.

 

To better/improve/excel yourself on a consistent basis, you have to identify your strengths and weaknesses,opportunities and threats. Make a list of your strengths and weaknesses…. Capitalize your strengths and recognize your weakness. Now that you have a list of things that you are strong and weak at, go through the list and choose one simple thing you want to get better at.

 

“Build on your strengths work on your weakness”. Mint Tan

 

Write and review/self analysis :The only way to become better at something, day-in and day-out, is to stay on track. Create a vision board Keep a journal in which you begin to keep track of the thoughts that you are having so that you know which ones are unhealthy and circling, and what to do when you are dealing with them. Interrupt them as much as possible.When you begin to think about something negative, write down your negative thought and whatever might be associated with it. Wait for a while until you calm down and then go back and read about what you were thinking.

 

You may often find that your thoughts were exaggerated perceptions about what was truly happening in reality. Even if what you are thinking is true, how could you see it in a better light ? Is there a way to add humor to your perception so that it can diffuse the negativity and stop stewing in your mind and tainting your ability to think in a positive way ? Once we have begun to recognize the general patterns of negative thinking that we have constructed in our own minds, we are going to have to do our best to interrupt them before they begin changing our moods, developing confidence requires training. If we can succeed in this, we can succeed in changing our negative thought patterns into positive ones before we are taking down a road that we do not want to go down. How can we possibly control all our thoughts when we have about 40,000 of them a day? We can’t control all our thoughts, but we can choose which ones we pay attention to.

 

“If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

 

Understand your strengths, weakness, opportunities, threats. And you can’t do that without some sort of daily or weekly review. Just set a time every day or week where you can write about and review your successes in making the change that you want to make. By doing this review, you will be able to tell where you need to improve as well as where you went wrong. Inward spiritual practices such as meditation, breathing techniques (pranayam) and self analysis generate insights and enhance abilities to understand yourself as well as the universe. We often attribute our happiness to places other than
internal. Meditation gives peace of mind. It is a fantastic opportunity to get to the root of all our worries. It will serve as a realization to propel us forward to infinite inner growth. All our answer lies within,True inner growth requires us to open up, to be aware. Meditation helps to calm you and be more conscious.

 

I also realized that during the nights when I meditate (before I sleep), I need lesser sleep. Meditation helps to understand yourself. The whole concept of presence can be difficult to adopt because of the conditioning that we all face. Through meditation and further exploration of consciousness, there is no doubt you will ‘achieve’ it – it is already within you! At first, meditation can seem difficult, due to the torrent of thoughts that flow through our minds nonstop. Through practice,however, we will begin to see thoughts dissipate. 528Hz Third eye activation meditation.528Hz DNA frequency (unlock your codons).432Hz DNA healing meditation.

 

If we were put here by a Creator, would He have put us here without a reason ? when we realize that everything happens for a reason. We have a purpose in life and our journey develops just as it’s supposed to be. Of course men cut off from God have no knowledge of that purpose. For that knowledge is not material, but spiritual knowledge. And spiritual things cannot be seen— nor heard,felt, smelled or tasted. Men cut off from their Creator of necessity are spiritually blind and ignorant,groping in the dark. But the Maker has sent an instruction book along with the human mechanism He made. we are, literally, clay images of God— composed of the dust of the ground.

 

Your main goal, now, will be spiritual and not material. No matter how intelligent, alert or resourceful you may be, you need gods wisdom and help. Wisdom comes from God. The way to inner fulfillment is the hardest journey a human being can undertake; it is also the most exciting and satisfying thing we can experience! Let’ stop looking outside! Everything we need is already within us. I will write about meditation in detail in my next blog.

 

“Meditate, because some questions can”t be answered by google”.

 

Have a vision, to have a vision be “awake,” meaning you have the ability to understand who you are,
what you want to be, and how you want to fit in the world. Keep an eye on the bigger picture: A new day always comes. A new door always opens. It is important to recognize that the future is full of promise. Meeting our goals requires constantly imagining and crafting our journey despite the present situation. It is okay not to have all answers right away. They will come. We can’t control everything, however, we can control ourselves: how we choose to respond, our own attitudes, how we let go, and our outlook—moving forward by keeping our eyes on the bigger picture. From Aristotle to Buddha to
Steve Jobs, many revered thinkers and talents have said that the path to an authentic journey is to know thyself, guided by an inner voice. requires disciplining our inner energy and drive. Often that energy solely comes from within.

 

“The soul usually knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the
mind”.Carolone Myss

 

Intend your destiny: destiny nurtures us with hope in our darkest moments, enables us to dream of better days, and resides in a place where we are destined to find our fulfillment. “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” We need to intend to “go somewhere” and make a difference. Everybody is able to move forward in their lives if they can continue to see the possibilities around them and seize opportunities that will move them forward. Unfortunately these opportunities become impossible to find if you are stuck in a negative mindset. We can”t direct the wind but we can adjust the sails. Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique
if you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.

 

Be in the moment: Basically, all that matters is the present, the here and now. whatever task you are performing focus your total attention to that task at those particular moment nothing else should matter. NOW. If we want to know the future, it creates tension, because the only way we can imagine it is by using our past experiences. Looking in the past or to the future causes worry and stress. Now is where we need to be and what we need to focus on. You cannot influence the moments of planets. You cannot live forever. You cannot affect the entropy of the universe. All you can do is to make this moment —
your moment — better. Mindfulness is one important technique that many positive thinkers utilized today.

 

Mindfulness allows us to stay in the present moment and avoid associations to the past that made the present moment feel more overwhelming than it needs to be. Trust that we are in the right place, right here, right now. Just be in the moment. You can affect the lives of others around you, and you can affect your own life. You can ease some suffering. You matter to those around you. Being in the moment allows us to escape from adversity and conserve our inner energy. Don”t just look, observe. Don”t just swallow, taste. Don”t just sleep, dream. Don”t just think feel. Don”t just exist, live. Everything is just fine right now and we all have a purpose in life to focus on. Live in the present moment and be mindful.

 

There is only now. If you have power, it’s now. If you can change anything, you have to do it now. If you want to be or to have that next great thing, be it. Have it. Take it. Own it. Do it. Become it. The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future or anticipate trouble….but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. Do it now. The clock is ticking. Actively participate in your day as if it was your last day on earth.

 

“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying; And this same flower
that smiles to-day Tomorrow will be dying . . . ” Robert Herrick

 

Wake up early. Waking up early has been acknowledged by many to improve your productivity and your quality of life. Wake up to achieve. I feel it’s because when you wake up early, your mindset is already set to continue the momentum and proactively live out the day. Wake up early and tackle the day before the day tackles you. Their is no better way to start the process of getting better at something than to wake up earlier. When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Getting up early has a ton of benefits. Work hard stay positive and get up early. Its the best part of the day. It’s quiet, dark, and peaceful. You can be by yourself and you can truly concentrate on the change you want to make one day at a time. Dream big
but wake up early to actualize them.

 

Keep an eye on the bigger picture: A new day always comes. A new door always opens. To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. Its not about winning and losing ; its about everyday hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It is important to recognize that the future is full of promise. Channelize your energy, drive, creativity, and discipline into something larger and more enduring than yourselves. Be it building a great company, changing the world, or achieving some great object that’s ultimately is not about themselves. Be awake and alert not careless and ignorant.

 

Meeting our goals requires constantly imagining and crafting our journey despite the present situation. It is okay not to have all answers right away. They will come. We can’t control everything, however, we can control ourselves: how we choose to respond, our own attitudes, how we let go, and our outlook— moving forward by keeping our eyes on the bigger picture. Keep believing in yourself. If pressure gives you the push toward your goal, motivation gives you the pull. It’s not enough to feel pressure to do something — you have to really desire it.

 

“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it,
but that it is too low and we reach it.” Michelangelo

 

Laughter : It’s no mistake that many people believe that laughter is the best medicine. Laughter boosts mental health by stimulating both hemispheres of the brain, encouraging clarity and better problem solving ability. Humor releases tension and loosens people up so that they are willing to work together toward a common goal. It takes the heat off for a moment so that parties can cool down and get back to being productive.

 

Laughter is extremely powerful, and it has the ability to help us to find relief in almost any given situation. In the blink of an eye, something can cause us to laugh and release endorphins in our bodies. This release of endorphins can help us to feel empowered and stronger, at the same time allowing us to relax and take away the tension and the pain of stress. A day without laughter is a day wasted. You cannot choose your circumstances. Life throws curve balls at everyone on this planet. You can choose your reaction to life. You have the power to select your mood just like you pick out your clothes.

 

If you wake up feeling melancholy, you can take action to replace those thoughts with happier ones. Cultivating a sense of humor is one of the best weapons in your arsenal of success. Humor is healing and unifying, and it can also lead to great accomplishments. Why is humor such an effective weapon? It might be because laughter is something to which everyone relates. It allows people to see their commonalities rather than their differences.

 

“A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of
getting things done.” Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

Be Honest: Many of us have a problem with being honest with ourselves about our flaws. Be honest: even if others are not even if others will not even if others cannot. We want to believe that we are perfect. However, you have to believe that you are not perfect in order to follow a path of positive thinking that will change your life. A real man will be honest no matter how painful the truth is. A coward hides behind lies and deceit. You have to acknowledge that there are negative things about life but you have to also keep in mind that these negative things can be changed. If you ignore them and you don’t work on them, they tend to stay there and get infected, causing you to have more negativity in your life than you need.

 

Pray The world has changed dramatically.We live in a round the clock, multi-tasking, hyper connected society. There are more addictions than ever, more obesity than ever, we exercise less, we eat bad food and we drink too much, we procrastinate too much and we sit on our computers playing games for hours on end. Life is more complex, more stressful, more demanding. We have transitioned from the Industrial Age into the Information / Knowledge Worker Age— with all of its profound consequences. We face challenges and problems in our personal lives, our families, and our organizations never imagined even one and two decades ago. These challenges are not only of a new order of magnitude, they are altogether different in kind.so pray. Yes, you might find it a cliché, but it’s true.

 

Once you pray, it seems that all your worries are being gone. You are naturally having a peaceful mind. Noble people do noble things.it doesn’t matter what you’ve done. What matters is what you do. Practice the pause, When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired pause, when stressed, pause. And when you pause, PRAY. And some of you may ask,” I don’t know how to pray.” Yes, you can. Praying is just like talking to a friend, but this time, you’re talking to God. The Bible says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks
receives; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” You might have not, because you might ask not. So ask God, He is always there for you. He is always listening to you. You will notice then that your mind is now starting to become more positive.

 

Groom yourself, Dress Nicely. Personal grooming is about presenting yourself in the best possible way. When you look yourself into the mirror, are you feeling good ?

Better to choose a color that is close to your original color and it should naturally complements your facial tones. Make it a habit to stand straight.
