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.
