Mind Power and Success

By Remez Sasson

The mind plays an important role in every success. In order to attain any kind of success, in any field, with small everyday goals or with major goals, one needs to exercise his/her mind power. How is it done?

In minor or day-to-day desires, one usually knows what he or she wants to do or get, but when the goal is a major one, people do not really know what they want. They have a vague idea and some vague desire. In this case, one has first to think or meditate, to find out what is it that he/she wants to accomplish. One needs focused and clear thinking. People often say that they cannot think clearly, and that they do not know what they really want to accomplish in their lives. This is due to lack of focused thinking, willpower and self-discipline, but these skills can be improved and strengthened by practice.

After discovering what you really want to accomplish, you need to come up with a plan for action. You need to know what you have to do first, and how to proceed. All of this requires planning, which means using the power of the mind.

After deciding on a goal and coming up with a plan, you need to hold in your mind a clear mental image of your goal. You need to see it accomplished. This step requires that you use your imagination, which is another power of the mind. Not everyone can see clear mental images, but regular training of the imagination can do wonders. You may, for example, look at photos of what you want to achieve, and then close your eyes, and try to see it in your imagination. This will enhance your ability to visualize.

At this point you have to display patience, self-discipline and the power to persist in your efforts. This requires a one pointed mind.

Affirmations are another mental useful tool, which you can use. What you affirm sinks into the subconscious mind, become part of the subconscious mind, and consequently affect your behavior and actions. If your affirmations are positive, they lead you to success.

Another important power of the mind is thought transference. You need to be able to transmit your thoughts to other people, who might aid you with your plans. Often you have to persuade others to invest in your plans or to help you in other ways. It is not enough just to talk with them, you need to believe in what you are saying; you need to be enthusiastic and persuasive, otherwise they won't listen and won't care. You need to be able to reject your and their doubts. To be able to do so you need concentration, control over your thoughts, willpower self-discipline and patience. All of which are mental tools and skills.

Motivation is another mental and emotional power that you require. How can you achieve anything if you are not motivated enough? To increase your motivation and enthusiasm, think often of your goal, about its advantages and benefits, and how it will change your life. Doing so, will strengthen and your motivation.

Your thoughts, which are part of your mind, possess power. The thoughts that you most often think tend to come true. If you pour your mental energy into the same thoughts or mental images day after day, they becomes stronger and stronger, consequently affecting your expectations behavior and actions. These thoughts and mental images can even be subconsciously perceived by other people, who would then offer you help or opportunities. Your thoughts can also create what is usually termed as coincidence. They can attract into your life events, situations and opportunities.

Not every thought turns into reality. A thought has to be repeated often, and be tinged with emotions, in order to come true. Doubts fears and worries tend to destroy what you build with the power of your mind. This means that you need to clear your mind of negative thoughts and doubts. You might say that this is not possible, but it is, through proper training, which you can find at this website, in the articles, ebooks and books.

Visualize and Achieve Visualize and Achieve is an ebook that teaches in clear language how you can harness the power of your imagination and the power of your mind to achieve your dreams and goals.

You can make it!


The history of the baby frog.......
Once upon a time there was a bunch of baby frogs…
… participating in a competition.
The target was to get to the top of a high tower.
A crowd of people had gathered to observe the race and
encourage the participants.....

The start shot rang out ....... Quite honestly:
None of the onlookers believed that the baby frogs
could actually accomplish getting to the top of the tower.

Words like:
"Åh, it's too difficult!!!
They'll never reach the top."
"Not a chance... the tower is too high!"
One by one some of the baby frogs fell off…
...Except those who fastly climbed higher and higher..

The crowd kept on yelling:
"It's too difficult. Nobody is going to make it!"
More baby frogs became tired and gave up...
...But one kept going higher and higher.....
He was not about giving up!

At the end everybody had given up, except the one
determined to reach the top!
All the other participants naturally wanted to know how he had
managed to do what none of the others had been able to do!
One competitor asked the winner, what was his secret?

The truth was.......
The winner was deaf!!!!
The lesson to be learned:
Don't ever listen to people who are negative and pessimistic...
…they will deprive you of your loveliest dreams and wishes
you carry in your heart!
Always be aware of the power of words, as everything you hear and
read will interfere with your actions!

Always stay… POSITIVE!
And most of all: Turn a deaf ear when people tell you, that you
cannot achieve your dreams!
Always believe:
You can make it!
Send this to the people that you care about.
It will give them courage and motivation!!!

How to Set Intentions that Energize You

by Charles Burke

We've all heard how crucial it is to set intentions, goals and targets. Powerful goals electrify us. Clear intentions energize and pull us forward. Without a clearcut intention, we're reactive and don't get around to doing the important things when we want them done. Instead, we spend our time fighting random fires.

Without clear intentions, anything might happen. And usually does. Literally, intentions are like the steering wheel on your car. Their whole purpose is to give you control over where you're going. But when setting intentions or goals, keep in mind that if you can't measure it, you can't manage it.

Now, it's good to have intentions at more than one level. When we get up into the more conceptual intentions, such as "I will contribute to the wellbeing of those around me," these become like a mission statement.

But then, be sure you go on to decide specifically how you will go about implementing your mission in your daily life. Specifics are essential.

How -- specifically -- will you put your mission into action today?
What will you actually DO about your highest intentions?

It's important to set intentions for yourself because this is where the rubber meets the road.

Just say "I'm going to do this and this." It should be nothing big and overpowering. Just some stuff you're meaning to do or achieve short-term. Be sure to write them down on paper. When you list them out, you can clearly look over your results afterward and check yourself.

At the end of today or this time next week, did you do what you said you'd do? Expressed like that, it's clear that we're building a kind of internal integrity check within ourselves.

When you're first starting to build this new intention-setting skill (habit), it's important not to pile on too much. Sure, it's easy to get all excited about turning over a new leaf, but it's essential that you start where you are NOW, not where you think you SHOULD be.

There are things that, from experience, you already know you can do. Set your intentions to do those things (plus perhaps a little bit more) and achieve them. Then, when you're comfortable doing what you say you'll do, then you can begin to stretch your intention muscles a little more.

But as in any new regimin, begin easy. Begin with what you can actually do. And only after you get comfortable with the intention-setting process should you start going for real growth. Patience - taking small, measured steps - is more than a virtue here. It's the key to keeping yourself moving forward. (Notice I said patience, not procrastination.)

Attempt too much too soon, and the end result will be another round of demotivation and discouragement.

Instead, go about this logically and gradually: keep your eye on the level you want to reach next year, and let today's effort take you 1/365th of the way there. Do this, and you'll see real, measurable progress as well as achievements you'll truly be proud of.

It's all pretty simple stuff, really. Just training yourself to keep your word to yourself.

Cheers from sunny Japan,Charles~~ ~~

Overpower evil

old wives tale? do read. there's great wisdom in this!

A long time ago in China, a girl named Li-Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.

Days passed, and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing Li-Li's poor husband great distress.

Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it. Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all.

Mr. Huang thought for a while, and finally said, "Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you."

Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."

Mr. Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs. He told Li-Li, "You can't use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious. Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body. Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. Don't argue with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen." Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law.

Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the whole household had changed. Li-Li had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset. She hadn't had an argument with her mother-in-law in six months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.

The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li changed, and she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Li-Li and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter. Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was happening.

One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her."

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."

MORAL: Have you ever realised that how you treat others is exactly how they will treat you?

There is a wise saying: "The person who loves others will also be loved in return."

God might be trying to work in another person's life through you.
