Ten Tips to Recover from Depression

Studies shows that people suffering from depression usually want to have a life that is not their own. They try to mimic a person's life and try to compare themselves to other people.

Depression comes with sleeplessness, dejection, and unhappiness, sometimes with suicidal tendencies. It is usually a state of hopelessness and unhappiness.

Depression can usually make a person feel worn-out. A person might not even be aware that s/he is already loosing their sense of purpose. It can also lose a person's focus on his purpose.

Loosing a sense of purpose in life is loosing the direction where a person wants to be. It draws a person to lose his drive to live.

He should internalize and assess his talents and skills. This will help him discover again his talents and the things he can do. Doing this will help him cope up and gain his purpose again to live.

It is good to understand priorities. Setting and maintaining them will give a person direction to live his life reasonably.

Depression usually comes along with anxiety. Psychologists agree that treating depression is easy when it comes with anxiety, because anxiety is a treatable mood disorder.

There are different Emotional Therapy programs that treat patients who have depression.

Enrolling in a self-helped program is one way of getting out of depression. Here are the things that can help you to recover from depression:

1. Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

2. Learn to forgive. Remember that no one is perfect. It is okay to commit mistakes. What is important is learning from them.

3. Think in a positive way. Whatever happens, always think that there is a hidden purpose for everything that is going on.

4. Stop worrying about the future. Worrying for the future will make a person neglect the good things that currently surrounds him.

5. Do not mind what others think. Worrying about others' opinion will not do any good. Remember that the saying "you cannot please everybody" is true.

6. Smile more. Smiling is the best therapy to any sickness. It relaxes the body.

7. Learn to love yourself. Remember that before a person can love others, he needs to love himself first. He cannot share something that he does not have.

8. Practice meditation. This is a very helpful therapy because it relaxes the mind from worries.

9. Be strong to fight negative thoughts. The greatest challenge when treating depression is controlling your own mind. You need strength to fight negative things that enters the mind.

10. Learn to appreciate. Every person is unique and special. Do not think of yourself as inferior to others. Focus on the things that are present rather than the things that are not there.

Following this simple task can help you to recover from depression. Remember that treating depression is not an overnight recovery. A long self-help treatment requires patience and determination.

Make a list of the things that causes happiness, sadness, and worries. Compare each list.

Life is not a bed of roses. It is a battle of good and bad experiences. You need to be strong and adopt positive thoughts. Fighting back against the voices within that triggers panic and depressive mood is not easy. However, you need to have determination in order to live life to the fullest.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

By Eric Kampmann

Our culture is obsessed with the acquisition of material goods
and worldly status. However, in the race to attain these
temporal things, people forget to pursue spiritual riches. When
we spend the best days of our lives chasing after fame or
wealth, then we are to be pitied, for in the end, nothing of
lasting value will be ours. "Meaningless! Meaningless!
Everything is meaningless."(Ecclesiastes 1:2)

Unlike many of the popular writers of the "lost generation" of
the 1920s who reflected a world stripped of God, Solomon is not
writing as a stoic or nihilist. He is simply describing a truth
that has been lost in our own time: The world is nothing more
than a wasteland without God. "All things are wearisome, more
than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the
ear its fill of hearing. What has been will be again, what has
been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the
sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

When the purpose of life is reduced to satisfying the appetites
of the body, we ultimately discover that the appetites are
insatiable and, like a fire out of control, they never have
enough. Solomon explains how futile it is to only strive after
things of this world: "I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my
work and this was the reward for all my labor. Yet when I
surveyed all that my hands had done and what I toiled to
achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 2:10-11)

Looking back over the course of his long life, Solomon realized
that he had lost his way when he turned to pursuing pleasure as
the primary purpose of life. For no matter how much wealth he
accumulated, no matter how many buildings he built or goods he
possessed, the thirst could never be quenched, nor the appetite
ever satisfied.

What is man without God? The long, sorry history of mankind
wandering in the wilderness of godlessness is perfectly
summarized in the first chapter of Paul's letter to the Romans.
It is a brutal picture, but we deny the truth of it at our own
peril: "...since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the
knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do
what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every
kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of
envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they
invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are
senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know
God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve
death, they not only continue to do these very things but also
approve of those who practice them." (Romans 1:28-32)

Man apart from God is a profoundly lost creature is evoked in
T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men." If you remove the Christianity of
Christ from life and describe raw existence as it really is,
life is much like the hard service of a hired hand, as Job
describes it (Job 7:1-5).

In a world where Jesus never existed, one would be forced to
adopt a strategy based on either hedonism or its reverse,
stoicism. Life in such a world would indeed be nasty, brutish and

But in a world where Christ lives through the Holy Spirit, the
issue of hard service and suffering is transformed into
something quite different. Christ asks those who serve to be
strong and persevere, whatever the circumstance. He does not
teach those who follow that life will be a romp in the park;
quite the reverse for he says in the Sermon on the Mount:
"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and
falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice
and be glad because great is your reward in heaven...." (Matthew

Despite the suffering and conflict in an unredeemed world, we
are called to service through faith. "Finally, brothers,
whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever
is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything
is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Whatever
you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -
put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
(Philippians 4:8-9) Perhaps knowing what it meant to be a 1st
century Christian would be a good place to start for a sojourner
navigating through a world characterized by Paul as "a crooked
and depraved generation."(Philippians 2:15)

Ways to Finding Your Purpose in Life

By Zach Kong

Now before we dive right into finding your purpose in life, let me ask you one question.

Which comes first? Purpose or goals?

No, no. This is not a chicken-and-egg type of question. This question is totally legitimate question.

Now ask yourself how often have you heard that in order to get what you want, you must first have a goal in hand.

"A person who aims at nothing is sure to hit it."
~ Unknown ~~

And how often do you heard from others that you need to have a worthy purpose in your mind?

So which comes first? Purpose or goals?

Isn't the answer obvious? Or you still don't get it? Ok, imagine this. Suppose today you're a superman (or superwoman), and you plan to go, let's say, United States of America and you're currently on an island in South East Asia, say Singapore. Would you:
  • Fly out into the outer space, know where USA is and then make your journey back to Earth to where you want to go
  • Or would you from your known position, fly to another known place and slowly make your way to USA?
Which one will be faster and more efficient? Obviously the second one right?

To start from goals setting then to finding your purpose in life, you're in fact trying to figure out what you want to become from the several goals you set for yourself instead of aligning your goals to what you want to become.

That is probably one of the reasons why many people always procrastinate taking actions to achieving their goals. It is not because they can't reach it; rather, it is because they do not have enough passion, desire, motivation and most importantly, a reason, to reach it.

By first finding your purpose in life, you're in fact finding your very personal reason why you think you exist in this word and why you want to become what you want to become.

As mentioned in the previous post about the importance of having your purpose in life, a worthy purpose can help you through tough times when you meet up with challenges and obstacles along the way.

A worthy purpose helps you to keep an eye on the prize while overcoming all obstacles that come your way.

A worthy purpose need not be huge to be considered worthy. Your purpose need not necessary change thousands of lives or change the world others live. If you feel comfortable with it, then include it in your purpose. Else, just leave it out. What're more important is you feel comfortable being who you are.

Your purpose in life is worthy as long as you considered believe it is.

So now having understood the real importance of purpose, let's get down to really finding your purpose in life.

What's important to know is that finding your purpose in life is not a one-time thing. Like learning, it is a life-long, on-going process.

As you moved through different phases of your life, you'll need to review, re-think and refine your purpose in life. And your journey to finding your purpose in life starts from here, all from a gentle nudge to become the real person you're meant to be.

Personal development books like Success Principles, The Power of Focus etc are some of the wonderful books that help you understand your purpose and guide you through the steps to finding your purpose in life.

Out of those many books, I personally prefer Jack Canfield's Success Principle as it provides you a step-by-step guide to finding your purpose in life through a serious of simple yet mind-provoking questions.

1. List down 2 qualities you want others to see from you. People will remember these qualities whenever they mention about you. Cheerful? Understanding? Playful? Caring?

2. Determine how are you going to express these 2 qualities when interacting with other people? Is it through inspiration, motivation or sharing?

3. Next imagine how will the world be like if everything is perfect? How is everyone communicating with one another? What traits can you see in everyone around you? Remember, the keyword here is "Perfect". How does a perfect world look to you?

4. Lastly, you just need to combine the above 3 sections into a paragraph and presto … you've just completed your first attempt to finding your purpose in life.

"Joy is but the sign that creative emotion is fulfilling its purpose."
~~ Charles Du Bos ~~

Now, don't be many others who just read and forget it about. Put them to actions. Write down your purpose, read it everyday. Print it out nicely, laminate it and carry it with you everywhere you go. Read it with enthusiasm and excitement. Send out positive vibrations that you're fulfilling your purpose in life in everything you do.

Don't worry about perfecting it the first time. As I have said earlier, finding your purpose in life is an on-going process. What's more important is finding a purpose you feel enthusiastic and excited about.

If you wish, go refer to others' purposes or mission statements and get some inspiration from there. Just note that everyone is different, so are our purposes. Refer and not copy.

Find the purpose you can best resonate with and stick to it. Read it everyday and make sure you're taking the necessary actions to fulfilling your purpose in life.

My purpose? Well, it is:

"To live in abundance of wealth, health and happiness. Through coaching, mentoring and sharing, to be a source of inspiration and motivation to others to attain their desires through a joyful, happy and playful manner."

So what is your purpose in life?

"We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don't know where you're aiming, you don't have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared."
~~ Mary Kay Ash ~~

Life Purpose Vision

By Marianne Weidlein

"Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and
creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills
countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely
commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have
occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in
one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and
material assistance, which no many could have dreamt would come his
way." W.H. Murray


When self-employed, you quickly learn that your actions shape your
life. Whether you thrive is up to you, and your lifestyle is the result
of the money you generate.

You have the right, the power, and the resources to create what you
want. Begin by being clear and releasing fear, self-limiting attitudes
and patterns. Allow yourself to visualize your dream, uncensored by the
restrictions and conditioning from your past. Clarify your purpose,
function, and vision, strategize the right plan, offer your service to
those who are ready to buy, and you will succeed. Now you will begin
with your Life Purpose Vision. If needed, ask your friend to help draw out
your vision by asking additional probing questions based on your responses.

Complete this activity any time you want to:

- Focus your goals over a long period of time
- Clarify your purpose, function, or vision
- Review your long-term goals.

1. Purpose. What do you think is the fundamental purpose of your life?
If you are not sure, what is your best guess? Your purpose should
reflect why you believe you are alive for your own development, rather
than for others.

2. Function. Based on your purpose, what do you think is your function
in society?

3. Peak of Success Vision. In the same reflective mood, consider the
point in your life at which you could be at the peak of your success.
How old will you be? If you don't know, be playful and guess.

Now, consider the quality of life you want for yourself at that time.
Answer in complete sentences. Visualize how you want to be living and
experience how you want to feel. Describe:

- Where you live
- Your home environment and the people with whom you live
- Service, career and business
- Financial matters
- Professional support network
- Family, friendships and other relationships
- Your spare time and private time
- Your personal needs, health and well-being
- Spirituality
- Your modes of creative self-expression
- How you are empowered
- Above everything else, what do you want from your life?

When you have finished your vision, using a planning chart, write the
titles of each category above in the spaces provided. Identify key
elements of your vision, then write them in abbreviated terms in the
appropriate category.

4. Support. How do you believe you are supported to fulfill your
purpose, function, and vision? When you want support, from where do you
seek it? When you don't feel supported, what do you do? Determine the
effectiveness of this strategy. How do you want to feel supported? What
will you do to experience the support you want?

5. Limitations. List and describe the self-limiting beliefs, fears, and
patterns, by which you currently feel inhibited. (Example: I fear
rejection, so I don't reach out. and stay stuck.) How does this affect
your ability to succeed? Identify what you are ready to change and
explain how you will accomplish it. With what will you replace these

6. Shadow. What need, desire or aspect of personality, do you most
suppress or fear? For example, do you fear your anger? Or do you
suppress positive attributes, such as sensitivity or love. (If you are
not sure, ask someone close to you for help.) Why do you suppress or
fear this? Explain how suppressing this affects you. Determine how you
will stop suppressing it, and how to allow greater freedom of
expression, and describe how you will feel. Describe how your life purpose,
function, and vision will be enhanced.

7. Resources. List your internal strengths and resources and explain
how they empower you. Review this list. Determine if anything is
missing, and how you will acquire it. List your external resources and,
next to each, explain how it is supportive. Review your list and
determine needed resources, and explain how you will utilize them.
Include costs and dates when appropriate.

8. Conclusion. How do you feel now? Why? Describe what you have gained
from this visioning. Write a commitment statement to yourself and to
your purpose, function, and vision. Read it daily. Share it with your
mentors and the people closest to you, so that they are better able to
support you.

Using the Law of Attraction for Positive Thinking

You will find that the law of attraction and positive thinking go hand and hand. You will find that there are a lot of ways that you can use the law of attraction to boast a positive attitude, however, you will want to consider that there are some things that you are going to have to do in order to keep the law of attraction working for you and learn how to think positive all the time. You can't really be positive all the time, because there are times where weakness will prevail, but you will need to fight the urges and fight the need to bring negative energy into your life.

First you will need to use the law of attraction and lighten up a little bit. When you take yourself too seriously, you just look stupid. You will also find that humor will make you feel better and there are many physiological benefits from laughter. You will find that the minute you lighten up you will feel the stress and intention ease. You will also be more alert when you lighten up.

Don't forget to laugh, and laugh often. There are going to be times through the process of the law of attraction that will get overwhelming, however, you will need to laugh just to laugh. You know a lot of people find that when they laugh thinks just seem to be a whole lot better, even at the worst of times.

If you really want to learn anything from the experience of using the law of attraction then you will need to learn how to appreciate the things that you have and be thankful. You need to show those who you care about that you also appreciate them because what you give to the world, you get from the world. For you to love, you need to give love. With that said, you will find life will get easier if you learn how to open minded and appreciate the things that you got.

Also, you need to expect that opportunity is just around the bay. You need to accept the amazing things that are offered to you and you need to make sure that you show others that you appreciate the opportunities. However, keep in mind that common sense is the perfect gift that any parent may give their child, so you need to use common sense in cases of opportunity.

Also, you need to learn how to listen to your gut feelings. Most of the time you are right; consider the fact that you may know what is best for you after all. A lot of people will go against their intuition and each time that they do, they seem to get lost. It's always best to put some trust and faith in yourself, because, with the law of attraction, you depend on it.

Finally, for this to work for you and for you to find a positive outlook on life, you need to wonder. You should wonder what it is that your life means to the rest of the universe (because everyone has a place and a purpose in life). You also need to take the time to just lie on the ground and watch the clouds. It's always a good idea to bring yourself back to the childish wonders because it's the only way to keep both feet on the ground.

Keep in mind that if you are looking to get the most out of the law of attraction, you will need to use your time wisely and you need to keep your positive attitude and reflection on life to be positive as well.

Healing Your Past with Meditation

We all know it is not possible to roll back time or undo or change bad decisions we made in the past, however using meditation we can change the way we feel about the bad decisions we made in the past so that they will stop tormenting us here in the present. We all carry a lot of baggage from the past, such things as maybe a broken heart, hurt feelings, or bad memories of friends or loved ones that have lied, cheated, or betrayed us, events that may have brought us pain, or we may torment ourselves over opportunities we may have missed out on or even wrong choices we made in our lives.

We absolutely cannot allow ourselves to let things in the past we cannot change take over our present lives. Meditation is simply collecting our thoughts in a relaxing atmosphere. If you take the time to learn how to heal your past it will enable you to be happy in the present. You may ask how you can heal the past. You can look at past situations you cannot change in a brighter light with a new understanding on the events in the past have hurt you. When you're by yourself in a quiet place start your meditation.

Think about how whatever may have happened to you in the past may even be a benefit to you. You know how bad you felt when something or somebody said or did something to you that you felt that you had no purpose in life or was not good enough to associate with others. Meditating about how those things in the past made you feel helps you to understand how others who are now in the same situation you were in then feel about themselves.

You know how they feel so you maybe can tell them your experience back then and how you turned it around and made a life for yourself. So many of us just need someone to take the time to just say hello or nice day isn't it? Just a kind word to someone who has had a bad day can make all the difference in the world. My dear sweet mother told me all the time that you can kill more flies with honey. Meditation can make you feel so much more positive and give you a different outlook on life in general; it is something very positive you can do to help yourself.

What she meant was if you have been around someone that wasn't pleasant or had a bad attitude don't act like that person does, instead just turn the other cheek and it may rub off on the person who has a bad attitude. Meditation could be the key to this happening. So you see meditation can be used to turn bad situations into something good or even good situations into something great. Shining the light of the new understanding on those events that happened in the past will help you have a feeling of acceptance, peace, and happiness.

Acquire Power Through Self Development

It is the natural right of every human being to be happy to escape all the miseries of life. Happiness is the normal condition, as natural as the landscapes and the seasons. It is unnatural to suffer and it is only because of our ignorance that we do suffer. Happiness is the product of wisdom. To attain perfect wisdom, to comprehend fully the purpose of life, to realize completely the relationship of human beings to each other, is to put an end to all suffering, to escape every ill and evil that afflicts us. Perfect wisdom is unshadowed joy.

Why do we suffer in life? Because in the scheme of nature we are being forced forward in evolution and we lack the spiritual illumination that alone can light the way and enable us to move safely among the obstacles that lie before us. Usually we do not even see or suspect the presence of trouble until it suddenly leaps upon us like a concealed tiger. One day our family circle is complete and happy. A week later death has come and gone and joy is replaced with agony. Today we have a friend. Tomorrow he will be an enemy and we do not know why. A little while ago we had wealth and all material luxuries. There was a sudden change and now we have only poverty and misery and yet we seek in vain for a reason why this should be. There was a time when we had health and strength; but they have both departed and no trace of a reason appears. Aside from these greater tragedies of life innumerable things of lesser consequence continually bring to us little miseries and minor heartaches. We most earnestly desire to avoid them but we never see them until they strike us, until in the darkness of our ignorance we blunder upon them. The thing we lack is the spiritual illumination that will enable us to look far and wide, finding the hidden causes of human suffering and revealing the method by which they may be avoided; and if we can but reach illumination the evolutionary journey can be made both comfortably and swiftly. It is as though we must pass through a long, dark room filled with furniture promiscuously scattered about. In the darkness our progress would be slow and painful and our bruises many. But if we could press a button that would turn on the electric light we could then make the same journey quickly and with perfect safety and comfort.

The old method of education was to store the mind with as many facts, or supposed facts, as could be accumulated and to give a certain exterior polish to the personality. The theory was that when a man was born he was a completed human being and that all that could be done for him was to load him up with information that would be used with more or less skill, according to the native ability he happened to be born with. The theosophical idea is that the physical man, and all that constitutes his life in the physical world, is but a very partial expression of the self; that in the ego of each there is practically unlimited power and wisdom; that these may be brought through into expression in the physical world as the physical body and its invisible counterparts, which together constitute the complex vehicle of the ego's manifestation, are evolved and adapted to the purpose; and that in exact proportion that conscious effort is given to such self-development will spiritual illumination be achieved and wisdom attained. Thus the light that leads to happiness is kindled from within and the evolutionary journey that all are making may be robbed of its suffering.

Why does death bring misery? Chiefly because it separates us from those we love. The only other reason why death brings grief or fear is because we do not understand it and comprehend the part it plays in human evolution. But the moment our ignorance gives way to comprehension such fear vanishes and a serene happiness takes its place.

Why do we have enemies from whose words or acts we suffer? Because in our limited physical consciousness we do not perceive the unity of all life and realize that our wrong thinking and doing must react upon us through other people a situation from which there is no possible escape except through ceasing to think evil and then patiently awaiting the time when the causes we have already generated are fully exhausted. When spiritual illumination comes, and we no longer stumble in the night of ignorance, the last enemy will disappear and we shall make no more forever.

Why do people suffer from poverty and disease? Only because of our blundering ignorance that makes their existence possible for us, and because we do not comprehend their meaning and their lessons, nor know the attitude to assume toward them. Had we but the wisdom to understand why they come to people, why they are necessary factors in their evolution, they would trouble us no longer. When nature's lesson is fully learned these mute teachers will vanish.

And so it is with all forms of suffering we experience. They are at once reactions from our ignorant blunderings and instructors that point out the better way. When we have comprehended the lessons they teach they are no longer necessary and disappear. It is not by the outward acquirement of facts that men become wise and great. It is by developing the soul from within until it illuminates the brain with that flood of light called genius.

Happiness and the Purpose of Life

"People spend a lifetime searching for happiness and looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within," said Ramona Anderson.

Almost all people long and seek for well-being, contentment, and a state of tranquility we call happiness. The search for happiness starts and ends within us. In all of these concerns, one great question exists: What then is the purpose of life?

"The purpose of life is the expansion of happiness," according to Maharishi Yogi. If we stop and think about it clearly, the purpose of life is to be happy. From the very heart of our being, we simply desire complete and lasting happiness. This does not only mean we should be contented with life, but we must also appreciate life itself. It is also important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.

People often forget that the primal source of life itself and happiness is God the Universal Force. Breakthroughs in science and technology led people to gradually lose confidence in God and eventually glorify human knowledge instead.

How many of us struggle to survive and work hard to attain prosperity and achieve happiness? With these as our goals, we labor for better times ahead. Through hardships and misery, we push ourselves to improve the quality of our lives. In the course of our pursuit, we forget the Higher Force who is all too willing to give what we desire. We just have to trust that He knows what is best for us.

In summary, here are the ten keys to happiness:
  • Learn to appreciate simple things and manage desires.
  • Happiness is found within us. It is in the choices that we make.
  • Attitude, attitude, attitude! How we react and deal with life's challenges spell the difference between happiness and misery.
  • Happy feelings are results of happy thoughts.
  • Happiness is a way of life.
  • Happiness is mostly created, and rarely given.
  • Learn to avoid or overcome factors that contribute to unhappiness.
  • We take responsibility for our own happiness.
  • Happiness is enhanced by the feelings of love and appreciation!
  • Happy people celebrate and appreciate life everyday. Happiness is theirs for keeps.
Savor the beauty of life. Live to the fullest. Make each day a happy day!

Think Right and Change Your Future

By Dr. Jay Polmar

You have an amazing Power attached to your thoughts. Think about it. You have POWER connected to your THOUGHTS. When we rephrase it: Your have energy connected to your thinking. Now that I've told you this, do you instinctively concern yourself about those thoughts that run endlessly through your mind? What about that little "babbling voice" that lives somewhere inside your head and drives millions of people to see their therapists every week. When you search for it - it calls out:"Voice? Voice? What voice? I don't hear any voice?" THAT'S YOUR VOICE.

Perhaps, you think that voice doesn't drive people nuts. Do you have any idea how much money is spent on psychiatry and psychiatric hospitals every year in the US? The real reason behind the psychiatry is usually - the inability to control one's inner babbling chatterbox. The goal here is for you to ThinkRight.

Take a look at your own self image. Your own self image is the result of your own thinking, positive or negative - or wrong or right, if you wish. If you want to change, you'll have to admit that you need the change and then move on to make the change. The THINKRIGHT program by Dr. Jay Polmar cause the changed needed in your own self image, by just thinking.

In life, without your personal involvement and personal direction - FATE wins, and life sucks. Are you responsible enough to get totally involved with your life? When you get totally involved, you get everything you want in life and it's a quality life. Fear of change is the greatest restriction for far too many people. They don't realize that to change means to grow -- to evolve into being a more capable and successful human. Are you responsible enough to say: "I must change, I will change, and I am changing"?

Give yourself the opportunities to change yourself. If you want to be a winner in the game of life you have to listen to your insights and intuition. These aren't the only ways to achieve, but they are the easiest. Winners listen to their inner voice of wisdom and not the babbling voice of fear. Those who cannot hear the voice because of their uncontrolled babbling idiot voice running endless negative thought programs, drift aimlessly through life in a sea of fear and doubt. Don't be lost drifting in that sea of fear; learn how to THINKRIGHT and find yourself a true winner in life.

Stop Begging! Start Manifesting

Do you remember that first spark of hope you felt when you watched The Secret? I clearly remember the desire that filled my heart, knowing that – Yes, I can make my dreams come true – FINALLY!

But how many of you soon saw that hope dwindle into frustration? How many of you (and be honest now) started muttering things like:

- “It seems to work for other people, but I just can’t get it right.”

- “I’m frustrated that sometimes I can get it to work, but sometimes I can’t. What’s the trick?”

- “Why am I having so much trouble?”

- “I think the universe is against me.”

- “I’m trying very, VERY hard but still nothing is happening!”

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. About 97% of people also couldn’t make the Law of Attraction work for them the first time round. Think about it, just like anything else, you have to practice many times before you see success. A child doesn’t learn to walk without falling over a couple of times, right?

But in practice, everything is easier said and done. When you’re frustrated, it’s hard to stay positive. And it’s especially harder to stay positive when the evidence all around you is screams negativity like the unstable economy or senseless acts of violence such as those recently seen in Mumbai.

And do you know what happens when you fail to stay positive? That’s right – you start attracting negative things in to your life.

So how can you make the Law of Attraction work for you – without getting frustrated? How do those who successfully implement the Law of Attraction do it with such confidence and finesse?

Well, here’s three quick tips so you will never feel frustrated or tired of begging from the universe, because you know how to start manifesting like a pro.

1. Allow Yourself To Receive

Just like a lost child who approaches a police officer and asks, “Excuse me Sir, can you tell me how to go to the post office? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you? Can you?” Well, if the child goes on and on asking, the police officer can’t even give an answer, right?

Well, it’s the same thing with your mind. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmit, transmit, transmit, the universe — which is trying to respond — can’t give you a single thing because you’re not allowing yourself to receive!

So, have the confidence in yourself and stop exhausting yourself by running around person to person begging for riches, and then wondering why nobody is dropping a penny in your cup (Hint: It’s because you’re running away too fast for them before they can even reach for their wallets).

Just think of your desires and leave it out there, go away, and trust that your cup will be filled with gold coins (or whatever it is you asked for) when the time is right.

2. Be Patient With Yourself

Receiving takes time.

Sadly, many people give up just a couple of steps before the finish line because they’ve decided that if it’s not working by now, it’s never going to work at all. Worse still are those who throw in more and more energy because they think that with more resources, the results will come faster.

This is like expecting 9 mothers to conceive and deliver a baby in 1 month. You also can’t bake cookies in half the time by doubling the temperature. You’ll incinerate those cookies to ashes!

In simple terms: Everything in this world has a natural development time, and this fact will not change no matter what resources you throw at it.

So relax and be patient. Remember that you too, as part of the universe, are also governed by the laws of the universe, and you cannot change the natural development time.

If you remember this, you will less likely work yourself up into frustration, or worse, push yourself into a downward spiral of negativity.

3. Support and Educate Yourself

Like the child who is learning how to walk, you need support. You also need to guidance on how to do it, and also the role models to look up to.

Many people give up because they think that “The Secret” is the “be all and end all” solution. Well, it’s NOT. “The Secret” is just a small portion. It was never intended, and has never been, the whole answer.

Coming to the conclusion that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work when all you ever did to educate yourself was watch “The Secret” 19 times (without looking at changing the habits of other areas of your life) is like coming to the conclusion that exercising is not an effective way to lose weight because all you did is run on the treadmill for 2 hours a day (but you’re still stuffing yourself with fried foods and cheesecakes).

So seek and be hungry for new knowledge. Also, make an effort to be amongst people or communities where you can support each other, learn from each other and also share new knowledge that you have found.

While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too!

Discover the way NLP Works

By Mark Spencer

Have you ever been curious as to how hard it would be to persuade someone to side with you or even get them to do something. Well I would like to welcome you to NLP Hypnosis. This is what we are all about. Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis is the ability to control someones actions simply through emotions. Not only that, but this can be used to to persuade another, giving them a positive emotion themselves.

This can be used in multiple ways and for many things with a positive result. It virtually can change any situation to our advantage when someone understands it and knows how to control it properly. For instance if we want someone to back out opinion or idea, we can do this by using a positive emotion to change their thoughts to whichever opinion we have. Let me show you a example to help you understand. Keep in mind, the situation will vary. Lets say you are a salesman at a store in the mall. Your goal is to convince a specific client to purchase a specific product from you store.

Well NLP Hypnosis will allow you to enable a positive emotion in your clients head each time you you perform a chosen action such as patting your client on the back, or touching his shoulder. You can choose the action, the action itself does not matter.

The Hypnosis is gained very simply. Lets say you wanted to use the pat on the back as your action. Well to gain hypnosis over the client, all you need to do is simply pat him on the back each time you see him smile. Once you gained hypnosis, wait until you are about to attempt to make the sale. When ready, pat the client on the back. Through NLP Hypnosis your client would smile and increase your odds of the client making the purchase. This kind of technique is stealthy, the client won't even notice that you are using it. Now take it to a personal level and try using NLP Hypnosis for yourself in your daily life.

After reading that, I hope understand what I mean when I say we can anchor to particular emotion. Therefore once you have the emotions anchored, you can push that emotion and use it at any time. Try this, anytime you are feeling happy snap your fingers. After a set period of time, you will be able to ignite the emotion of happiness with the snap of your fingers. Do you see how NLP Hypnosis can transform your life and deliver amazing results easily and effectively? It is pretty exciting. Such an can be valuable when regularly used. - 14682

Meditation: Easier Than It Might Appear

By Keira Adams

Some people wonder just how hard it is to meditate properly. The good news is that it's really not that difficult, and the benefits can be well worth the learning curve.

During meditation, your mind and body are in a state of conscious relaxation and focus. You will experience sharpened awareness of both your outer surroundings and your inner being.

There are numerous schools of thought regarding meditation. At their core, however, the principles are the same. The key to the practice of meditation is to calm your mind by eliminating negative thoughts through intense focus. Afterwards, your thoughts will be less scattered and your actions more purposeful.

Think of it as housekeeping of the mind. Your negative thoughts and emotions (picture your reaction when faced with construction delays, being put on hold endlessly, and your brother's upcoming trip to Europe) are what "pollute" your mind. Meditation "cleanses" the mind, allowing you to focus on the things that really matter.

Your meditation session will be most effective in a calm environment. Find a room in the house where you feel comfortable. If there are other people at home, choose a location where you can close the door and muffle the noise. Turn off the phone, the dishwasher, the washing machine, and don't let anyone vacuum.

When you become more comfortable with meditating, you'll probably want a few accessories to help you achieve your Zen state. Scented candles, a meditation pillow or chair, a few scented candles and a meditation tape will all enhance your experience.

You've almost certainly seen the characteristic images of meditation; people twisted up like a pretzel with flawless stance. You'll be reassured to know that this isn't at all compulsory. The plan is to be comfortably positioned so you can concentrate on your meditation, not your painful muscles. You can sit with your legs crossed or extended and with your back against the wall, you can stand up, lie down, and even walk around.

However, you need to keep your back straight if you're sitting or standing. No slouching allowed, or you might just fall asleep. To help you be more comfortable in your preferred pose, you should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing so that you're not focusing on your circulation being cut off. You have more essential things to focus on.

Many people who meditate include a mantra as part of their practice. A mantra is a word or sound that is repeated over and over, and your focus should be on nothing but that sound. Choose a word or phrase that has significance to you, or just a sound that feels good. Although not a essential part of meditation, it does help you to concentrate on your breathing and can lead you to a higher state of awareness.

Focus is the most important aspect of meditation. Envision an object in your mind or look at an object in your vicinity, and contemplate it to the exclusion of anything else. The same applies to a particular thought as well as to your mantra.

Try this easy meditation exercise to get you started. Settle yourself in your quite location. Close your eyes, and imagine each part of your body in order, either from the bottom up or top down. Wordlessly name each part as you concentrate on it and give it your complete attention. You'll notice right away if a particular location is tense or painful. In your mind, imagine the tension leaving your body. You'll be astonished and pleased by the results. - 14682

15 Tricks To Become Attractive Instantly

By Joseph Matthews

When it comes to dating, it can be easy to give into bad emotions when faced with so much rejection and insecurity.

We'll feel we're doomed to being alone forever because we think we are too fat, ugly, short, old, bald, or whatever it is you feel insecure about.

However, the real issue isn't that we feel unattractive. It's that we're punishing ourselves over our own insecurities! If we give way to these negative thoughts and emotions, its going to be extremely difficult to find someone to date, because no woman wants to be with a man who doesn't like himself.

This is why we need to try and introduce positivity into our daily lives as much as humanly possible.

In order to do this, you need to learn how to replace your bad thoughts, with good ones. If you begin to repeat these good thoughts, eventually you'll train yourself to focus on the positive, rather than the negative.

Every morning after you wake up, and every evening before you go to bed, try and rehearse these positive thoughts in your mind, or out loud...

1. The more I like myself, the more others will like me.

2. I am fully competent and capable in everything that I decide to do.

3. I am highly creative, intelligent, attractive, energetic, witty, smart, healthy, wealthy and wise.

4. I love myself unconditionally just as I am - despite any flaws I may have.

5. I am self-sufficient, and do not rely on the approval of others to feel good about myself.

6. I feel comfortable around other people.

7. Other people like me and enjoy my presence.

8. I am fun and exciting to be with because I always have a good time.

9. I am comfortable talking to women.

10. I am comfortable interacting with women.

11. Women to whom I pay attention are extremely lucky - I am what women want.

12. I do not feel guilty about my desires.

13. I have to look my best all the time.

14. Women must prove themselves worthy of my time and attention in order to receive it. I am the prize.

15. Any woman would be lucky to have a great guy like me in their life.

Some guys might not feel authentic when reciting these positive thoughts. Sometimes, we become so used to negative emotions, they feel more comfortable than the positive ones!

But this isn't about lying to yourself to feel good. This is about training yourself to think in a way that gives you strength and confidence, rather than tearing yourself down.

You can change any of the above thoughts to suit you if you don't feel comfortable with any of them. Anything is acceptable as long as the change re-enforces a positive thought and emotion.

Remember that everyone is attracted to positivity. You can't attract the women you desire if you don't like who you are! Face it - if you don't feel you're someone who deserves to be happy, who else will? - 14682

Successful People Know The Cosmic Ordering Secrets

By Janette Stretens

As more and more people learn about cosmic ordering, more and more are looking to get involved with it. Place an order and learn to move forward!

There are so many people around the world who are getting what they consciously desire. But it doesn't work first time for everyone. Do the people who it does work for know something the others don't? Are there really cosmic ordering secrets.

Think about the last time that someone you know got a promotion or won a great prize. Whether you know it or not, you were placing an order. Disdain and envy at anothe's success tells the universe that you are someone who welcomes poverty and misery, and that these negative emotions are in fact your status quo.

Consider going to dinner at a nice restaurant. What do you do if you see someone there with a lovely meal? You don't get angry about not having it, you just get excited and order it for yourself! You'd hope that they loved their dinner and you would be happy for themselves.

With that in mind, why not be happy at someone else's success? You'll find that you can take happiness in their success and understand that your own is just as sweet. Don't be angry or bitter or disappointed because that reinforces what you already have; you are essentially planning for failure.

Many religions tell us that prayer and the power of prayer can bring us anything we want. There's a catch. You have to believe. Recently scientists found that if you apply the principals of quantum physics to this same belief system, there is scientific evidence that what was scoffed as religious dogma is true.

It is the application of the mind's energy that makes it happen. This doesn't take away from the religious doctrine but enhances it with proof.

There are too many things that can make you fail if you are just looking at positive affirmations. If you have had problems in the past, this can be reinforced and it can take away a lot of the good that you have created. Some affirmations do stick, but it takes time if the old beliefs are still around.

So what are the cosmic ordering secrets? You need to do a thorough housecleaning of your brain before you start any program to attain your life's desires. You need to start with a clean slate and realize it's okay to accept all the great wealth the Universe has to offer.

Lots of things can help you get rid of the old. Would you use a vacuum on a dirty carpet or a small tooth brush? There are lots of scientific designs out there that can help you make your mind more open to what it is you want.

Self-hypnosis, subliminal affirmations and binaural frequency waves help to do just that. They allow you to find and eliminate all the old negative thinking that you have in your subconscious mind. All that the cosmic ordering secrets really are is understanding that your own subconscious mind wants to sabotage your efforts to get whatever you desire.

Your mind hates change. It fights to keep you in a steady state so unless you believe that you already have what you want, just by using your cosmic ordering system; it fights you tooth and nail. These additional tools help to believe you already are there and relieves you of the fight to improve. It even makes it uncomfortable not to achieve and receive everything you want, because you already believe it exists.

The cosmic ordering system can give you whatever it is you want. Pick out your order and then find a way to make it a reality! - 14682

A Formula For Success - Be-Do-Have

By Jason Kendall

When thinking about the changes we'd like to make in our lives, we usually have a mental picture of what that change looks like. We imagine having a bigger house, a faster car, more holidays and perhaps a job with more status. We may even envision ourselves looking a bit different to how we look now - slimmer, more toned, better dressed.

These changes are all focusing on what we'd like to HAVE in our lives, and they're an excellent place to begin when working out the goals we want to achieve. If we don't have a vision of how things will be when we've reached the great heights of our personal success, we have very little chance of ever getting there.

But we have to be prepared to make some changes, before we can HAVE all these great things. "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" as Albert Einstein said. In other words we'll continue to have what we've always had if we keep doing what we've always done, and our life will just go round in circles getting no-where.

To take significant leaps forward in what we have, we need to make big changes not only to the way we do things, but more importantly to the way we think.

It's not rocket science to know that there's going to be a tad of work to DO to earn the things we want to HAVE. It's a basic law of life that we have to give in order to receive. But doing the work alone won't necessarily bring the goodies we want.

We become successful by thinking and behaving like a successful person - developing the identity, beliefs and values of an achiever before we've actually got there. So the student who's goal is to change career and double their income in the next three years has to become a conscientious learner who prioritises a certain amount of time to studying each week.

If the pub beckons, but the work hasn't been done, the pub must wait. The achiever is happy there'll be plenty more pub time down the road (and more money to spend at the pub!) if they put the effort in first. A healthy attitude to studying makes the learning process easier, and brings results much faster.

Success doesn't happen on its own. Developing the mindset of an achiever is a powerful weapon against the knocks, criticisms and doubts that will inevitably come our way. We can associate with winning attitudes by reading biographies, watching films and interviews of others who've overcome adversities on their road to victory. A familiar thread runs through each of their stories - that what they have now is largely the result of the work they did and who they became before the gravy train started to roll.

By focusing on becoming the person we need to BE, we will enjoy the work we have to DO more and receive the things we want to HAVE so much faster. - 14682

4 Core Blueprints to Reclaim your Life pt 5

By Lynn Pierce

There are 4 core areas, or what I call core blueprints, that require your attention if you want to have a life that is in flow with your true passion and purpose. When you've created all 4 of your blueprints and you have all 4 of these areas functioning at a level that satisfies you, then your life will be more peaceful and effortless than you have ever imagined it could really be...

No magic bullet required!

In the final week we will discuss the last blueprint, Mentoring for Your Life and Your Business Blueprint.

If you've done the work we've discussed in the first 4 installments of this series, you've got to be feeling pretty great about your life focus and your business right now. Through the first 4 weeks you've worked on knowing who you are, where you're starting from, where you want to go, how you're going to get there and how to ramp up your sales and marketing program using better communications skills to bring in more cash.

Now it's time for a mentoring blueprint.

In other blueprints I've mentioned that the top 3% of the people in the world have such a different life than the other 97% because they look at life differently and they make conscious choices. I told you that one of those conscious choices is to create a plan for building their business and it's day to day operations for growth and financial prosperity.

Another very crucial conscious choice the top 3% of people make is to invest in themselves.

Once again, first you have to know your starting point. The next step is to evaluate how you feel about where you are and then decide where you would like to take it next. You need to be laser focused and absolutely clear on what your next step is to get the best results from mentoring. If you're not you could pick the wrong thing to be mentored on or the wrong time to do it.

It is likely that as you progress on your path you will have more than one mentor for different parts of your life or business working with you at the same time.

I have said many times that you should be willing to invest at least 10% of your income in your own growth if you are really serious. Then find the mentors that understand where it is that you want to go and have the experience to take you there.

Here is where I differ with what many coaches and gurus will tell you. They will say that you should only work with someone who has done what you want to do and mentored others to do the same.

But that's not the whole story.

Where would Tiger Woods be today if he took that advice? His coaches have not been the best golfers in the world at any time in their careers; far from it.

Some people are gifted teachers and know the process of what needs to be done to get Tiger, or you, to the desired result without either the personal skill or perhaps the desire to reach that level themselves or possibly neither.

In my 25 year career as a salesperson, manager and trainer, I can tell you that the majority of the best salespeople couldn't train others to do what they do because they don't have the skill of a great teacher. That's not their gift. And yet someone who was an average salesperson can have an amazing understanding of the sales process and be an incredibly gifted mentor.

Some of the top gurus in your field may be the same way, the very best at what they do but not the best person to mentor someone to do the same.

If I were to share my personal preferences with you, I look for a mentor that understands what I want to accomplish. If I'm working with them one on one or in a small group, I want them to be excited about being involved in helping me reach that goal. I want them to have the skill level to be able to guide me through the process.

Are you getting the mentoring you need to grow your business and expand your level of personal growth?

Even more so than the other blueprints this is as extremely individualized so it's important that you make a decision based on your own gut feeling about your possible mentor. Don't just ask for a recommendation from a friend and assume that the relationship you will have with your mentor will be the same as theirs.

In this type of relationship, where you are getting personal mentoring, having a good fit of personalities is very important.

Remember that this is all about you. What you are passionate about, what you want your life to look like, the activities you choose to include in the way you create your business and the way you grow your business. Make those things clear to your prospective mentor and see if you are in alignment before proceeding.

It's your life. It's your business. It's your choice. Do what feels right to you.

Now you have the last piece of the 4 Core Blueprints to Reclaim your Life, Awaken Your Soul and Your Business. We've come full circle. You are creating the script of what you want your life story to be from now on. It's time for you to take 100% responsibility and take back 100% of your power. Pick up your pen and create a script for yourself that is exciting and compelling and passionate and fulfilling for you on every level.

Remember that all you ever need to know how to do is the next step that you're going to take right now and the end result. The steps in between and the people you need to help you make it happen will show themselves as needed.

I hope this series has been beneficial to you and that you've taken the action suggested. Now that you know what you want and how you're going to get there and you know how you're going to get the cash to make it happen you're ready to put it all together with the mentoring to keep you on track.

So get to work right now on blueprinting your life and reawaken your soul!

Until next week, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post on my blog. - 14682

Benefits Of Meditation - Learn How You Too Can Benefit

By Ferdinand Okeke

There are many gains of meditation. These benefits can range to improving your relationships with your friends, family and spouse, to improving your performance at your career. There are many reasons why meditation assists in these categories. The primary reason is that through meditation, you are taking control of how you think and allowing your body and mind to focus and relax. The removal of stress often gives you the clarity of thought required to keep relationships stable, as well as keep your work from overwhelming you.

Many people get into meditation to reap the gains of meditation on stress levels. Stress is often the number one cause of problems at home or at work. By lowering the levels of stress you feel, you are more capable of handling the problems that do arise. Even thought meditation cannot ensure protection from problems, it can assist in preparing you to better deal with them. As those who meditate tend to be better balanced and well rested, small problems are a lot less likely to turn into large ones.

A few other gains of meditation involve the ability to better focus and think more intelligibly. The subject of meditation is studied fairly frequently, however the fact that meditating does so much to bolster the thought process is still a bit of mystery. There has been speculation that meditation allows you to exercise parts of the mind that are usually left lying in dormant. By using more of your brain, you have better means to handle issues that may arise. As you are exercising your mind during meditation, your memory also improves, which assist in the power to focus.

One of the less often considered gains of meditation is the fact of putting your body into a state of tranquility. This rest can serve as effectively as a short nap, and in many ways, more effectively. As you put your mind and body into a state of rest by acts of of meditation, you have all of the gains of sleep without having actually slept. This prevents the groggy sensation that numerous people experience when they are first waking up after sleep.

many people can enjoy the benefits of meditation wherever they are. Meditation can be done anywhere, you can sit still and snub what is around you. This makes private offices, and even the commute to work, ideal places to meditate, especially if you take public transit or another form of meditation where you are not the driver. - 14682

How the Law of Attraction Will Alter Your Life Course

By Dick Ingersoll

Living within the Law of Attraction is definitely going to take you off the course you were headed down before you found this secret of the ages. What's so amazing is that you find no more use for the stuff that you once thought was necessary.

You often hear how a person received more things like a car, house, vacation or financial security. That's just the icing on the cake. With the Law of Attraction, what you lose can be the best part.

Lose? You thought the Law of Attraction was just about gaining. It is - that's why you have to lose to make it work. Once you understand the simple steps of Ask, Believe, and Receive - and you see the result - you realize that you can't follow this course by hanging onto old things hindering your success.

You begin to see what you need to leave behind. Now that you've moved from a job to a career, you're excited about learning everything you need to know to move forward in your career.

When you aren't working or relaxing at home, you're spending time with people who share your mindset. These people enjoy healthy activities like sports or yoga. As you look around, you realize that you have no time or interest in hanging around the old crying-in-their-beer crowd.

And you don't come home frustrated, collapsing on the sofa with a quart of ice cream or bottle of cheap wine. Almost without effort, these changes in how you see yourself and how you invest your life energy has brought about other transformations.

You've lost weight, reduced dangerously high cholesterol levels, become more agile and the stress lines on your face have smoothed out. You are maximizing the positives about yourself and you like what you see.

No wonder you're attracting into your circle of friends people who value positive energy just as you do! After those tentative beginnings when you prove the Law of Attraction really works, then you become bolder in taking charge of your life.

As much as you explain this to people from your old life, some will not shed their shackles for the freedom you have found. A few will - and they may travel new roads with you.

Or they may go on other roads to find their dreams. Either way, you have given back to the positive energy in the universe by sharing this wonderful concept. Each time you put the Law of Attraction into action, you see how what you receive has a trickle down effect.

You ask for a townhouse in the city closer to your job - even though prices are high and finding a good place is difficult. That's okay because you're specific in your request and believe that the townhouse is already yours - you are merely waiting for the universe to reveal the address of your new abode.

When you receive it, you share this with your real estate agent. What you didn't know is that your agent was depressed and worried about finances until you showed her how to apply the Law of Attraction.

Now her life is turned around and she has more free time. Months later, when she's offered a major planned community development project, she brings you in as a design consultant. Positive energy attracts more positive energy - and that will definitely alter your course in life. - 14682

Utilizing the Best Goal Setting Tips for Your Personal Success

By James Carter

There are times in life when the end goal we have set for ourselves is larger than we want to see. These goals are best broken down into smaller steps along the way. Goal setting for success can help to break down the seemingly insurmountable walls surrounding these goals. At the heart of goal setting is the smaller bits and pieces of the whole and the celebrations we give ourselves along the way.

Personal goal setting can work to make goal achievement easy and rewarding. These tips can help guide your personal goal setting in the right direction.

Think path, not end. The goals setting goals we aim to achieve need to be ones we can accomplishment in a short period of time. If our goals are huge they will seem to out of reach and we will lose interest in our success in a small time period. If the goal setting goals are small, we are constantly making it one step closer to the end and we are moving slowly but surely toward our huge expectation. A weight loss of 100 pounds may seem overwhelming, but goal setting for 10 pound increments is an achievable success waiting to happen.

Reward yourself often. Along the same lines as setting small personal success goals is rewarding yourself for those goals. On the same topic of weight loss, every time you lose those ten pounds, give something back to you! This is the purpose of goal setting for success. Reaching the goals means patting yourself on the back and preparing for the next goal. Try rewarding yourself with something totally unrelated to the goal. Weight loss, for instance, should not be rewarded with beauty regimes. But something more tangible, like a stone in the garden or a new picture on the wall.

Take help when you need it. Pride can mean the difference in goal setting movement that works and one that does not. If you are aimed at making those success driven life changes, having help along the way does not make you a failure. It does, however, make you the person that is more apt to make the most of goal setting. Your goals, with help, are still your successes.

Be ready to revise. Life comes at you quick and with life comes the chance of a roller coaster ride. We need to revise our methods of goal setting at every turn in the road if that is what is needed to make the success real. Achievement and success is not measured by the goal, but by the ability to continue moving forward despite the troubles and hindrances to our goal setting life may create.

Don't fret the missed goals. Not every goal will be met and that is just the way it should be. If goal setting always ended in success, there would be no need to do anything else in life except set goals. There will be ups and down along the path and goal setting simply allows you to stay focused on the bigger picture of overall success, even if there are stumbles.

Taking your time and setting goals that are achievable will make the difference in goal setting for personal success. It is the goals we set in our lives that make us drive for more and strive for the best. Goal setting needs to be realistic and open to change. And, when goals setting works and those success goals are reached, celebrate and reward yourself. - 14682

Reaching perfect male nirvana of inner confidence is actually quite simple. They roughly divide into four categories: intellectual, physical, monetary, and social. If, each day, you invest a portion of your time in all four of these areas you will feel like a complete man and you will find that your inner confidence improved.

Participate in perspiring. Be active daily with going to the gym, hiking, playing flag football, or anything that allows you to sweat. Physically demanding activities keep you healthy and make you look great to the opposite sex. If it's a unique activity like karate, share it in an charismatic story to a woman and she'll see how much more amazing you are than every person she's ever met.


Satiating your monetary category can be as simple as prioritizing at work. You'll have less anxiety on your mind when you know all of your deadlines for the week have been met. With your mind clear of obligations, you can freely relax when you go out and have a laid back time.


No one can go out every night, but every day, put aside time to maintain or grow your social circle. Ring a college room mate, have dinner with a coworker, or cook for close friends. More social events, invites more opportunities to meet your future girlfriend.

If every day you set small goals for yourself in each of these four areas and you accomplish them, then your inner confidence will begin to rise very quickly. You will become the man you always wanted to be. Once you are satisfied with your life, you will open the door for many quality women to enter and share it with you. - 14682
