The Power of Action0

The Power of ACTION

Have you read all the books in the world about achieving success in life and till now you are getting zero results?

How and when will you see significant changes in your life?

Are you brave enough to keep going and never quitting?

If yes then, let me share with you the important factor that is tightly connected to success. No body can ever succeed without this factor.

Here it is:

“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” - Conrad Hilton

It is all about taking action!

Have you applied what you’ve read? Have you taken bold actions? Are you persistent enough?

The common characteristics of highly successful people are that they never quit and they always keep moving.

They are not afraid of making mistakes. They believe that mistakes are their vehicle to massive success. Therefore, they simply learn the lessons and keep moving.

If you are in a journey and discovered that you lost your way, stopping will not take you anywhere. You have to choose another direction and keep moving.

Being in motion is the only way that will allow you to reach your destination. You can take shortcuts, you can take a faster vehicle, or you can get a map to identify the shortest path. Whatever you choose to do, the most important thing is to keep moving and take action.

Successful people are action-oriented. They work very hard, they are determined, and they are focused.

To rise above mediocrity, learn from your mistakes, keep moving and never quit. This is your secret formula to taking powerful actions that will lead you to achieve massive success in your life.

5 reasons why you can’t change…0

Yep you’re right you can’t change your life…

Other people can do it…start a business, get a new job, develop a new idea.
All those other people know how to do things. They have special talents, knowledge and skills that only the lucky have.

But not you…you tell yourself. You don’t have any of those skills or talents to help you do anything.

And because this is what we tell ourselves here are a few reasons why you can’t…

1. It’s too hard…yes it will be too hard to change something so might as well not do it.
2. You don’t know anything…ok never mind then.
3. People will think you are crazy…yeah don’t do it because of what others might think.
4. You don’t know how to start…no point in trying
5. You don’t have time…true you don’t get 24 hours like everyone else.

This is what we do, we believe all the negative things the voice in our head tells us. Then we act on what we say to ourselves.

But in the real world…

You are capable to do or be almost anything you want to be. So let’s look again at those 5 reasons why you can’t change your life.

1. It’s too hard…Yes change is sometimes hard. But how much value will you put into something that is easy to do or achieve. If it was easy to create a million dollar business everyone would do it.
2. You don’t know anything…You actually know quite a bit. Now maybe what you know is not going to get that business started. But you can learn whatever it is you need to know…even rocket science if you need to.
3. People will think you are crazy…They might, but so what? Do you want to live your life doing or not doing something just because somebody might look at you sideways?
4. You don’t know how to start…Well ask! There are a number of organizations like SCORE that can guide you and assist with launching that new business idea. Don’t wait and someday see the business you wanted to start opened on Main street by someone else.
5. You don’t have time…You have as much time as everyone else, a solid 24 hours. You have the choice to do with that time what you want. Sure we all have life responsibilities. But you can find ways to organize them and create the time you need.

So you see you really can do just about anything you want if you want it bad enough. Once you know what it is you want…go find out and create the life you want.

Be Yourself to Empower Yourself0

Do you always try to please others in order to gain acceptance from them? Sometimes this may lead you to unhappiness and depression. It is nice to care about other people’s feelings but you should understand that your needs are just as important. By giving more importance to others, you tend to ignore yourself as a special being. You could be considerate of others and at the same time you could be just yourself in order to maintain personal balance in your life.

Have you thought about ‘being yourself?’ Being yourself is empowering yourself to improve your life and career. By being yourself you build a strong foundation of your personality and attitude. You could realize or develop your full potential by being yourself. Here are some powerful tips to learn to be you:

1. Be a unique person. Each one of us is unique in this world. You are different from all others. You have a personality and character. Your personality has its positive and negative sides. You would feel comfortable with yourself if you accept yourself and feel safe to be who you are. Accepting yourself raises your self-confidence. So develop your individuality by accepting the fact that you are unique.

2. Know yourself. You would know yourself if you get familiar with yourself. You must know yourself physically, psychologically and socially and in fact you should know yourself in all aspects, in all entireties. Do you know how tall you are, how much you weigh, your color of eyes, hair, etc.? You could look in a mirror and familiarize yourself to know yourself physically. How about your disposition? Are you friendly? Are you a person who likes to be alone? What are your habits? What are your strengths and weakness? You would know yourself only by observing yourself.

3. Assess yourself. Once you get familiarized with yourself try to evaluate yourself. While evaluating yourself it is good to be open and honest. You could take the help of your close friend or relative to help you analyze and evaluate you. You would be your own critic of how you look, the way you walk, dress, speak, behave, etc. Being critical of yourself would help you improve upon areas where you feel you need to change or get better.

4. Respect Yourself. You need to respect yourself first so that you could learn to respect others. If you have some bad qualities and you are aware of it, you do not need to disrespect yourself or hate yourself. You do not need to condemn yourself of who you are. Learn to understand that no one is perfect. You could on the other hand look at the positive side of yourself and project yourself in positive ways while working on the negative aspects.

Once you understand your uniqueness, get familiar with yourself, assess and respect yourself you would be able to accept yourself. When you accept yourself you become a powerful person.

it’s your choice………0

Everything any of us ever wanted to be in life all boils down to a choice. Kind of scary to think that everything we are or are not was probably our choice. We decided to not go to college or not try that new business idea. Sure we can all find lots of excuses to explain away our choices….I didn’t have the money for college, the business would probably fail so why try.

These are just excuses to provide cover for the reality of your choices. But how do we know if we are making the right choices? We don’t always know.

But to have a good idea if you are making the right choice is first get your mind into it. Condition your thoughts to visualize what you want to happen.

Not just a fuzzy daydream but a full fledged, honest-to-goodness, day-by-day kind of visualizing. Say you want to be a successful manager – envision yourself dressing up in power suits, going to a corner office with a view, getting pats on the back for good work, speaking at conferences, etc.

Remember, your mind is your most powerful tool. If you aim on getting that corner office or academy award or gold medal, it will show you how to get it. Whether the solution is for you to study more or practice better, your mind will direct you to it. Some people use affirmations, mantras, physical reminders, diaries and whatever works that can remind them about their goal. Getting another person or a support group to remind you will also be great! There are support groups for just about everything you just need to find one. And if you can’t find one then start one. There has to be others that might just join your group because they have the same interests.

On the other hand, you can keep on telling yourself “no, I couldn’t do it” then you really can’t but it is your choice. There will be tons of excuses that you can fall back on anyway. Notice how convenient it is to just come up with them instead of aiming for something better? That’s where the power of your brain comes up again – negative or positive thoughts will influence what you are. Look around and observe – some people walk around with an upbeat attitude and some people are known as prophets of doom. You don’t even have to ask these people how they think because you can see it on them. And generally speaking, don’t you notice that the upbeat ones are the ones who are successful and happy?

So, do you want to act on stage, write horror books, or climb Everest? Whatever you want, it is your choice to do or not to do it. Think hard.
Then take your next step – go and do it.

8 helpful tips to deal with anxiety…….0

Anxiety is the feeling of fear or apprehension that is intense enough to disrupt one’s daily activities. It hits anyone at any point in their lives, regardless of sex and age. If you suffer from anxiety and you let anxiety overcome you, you then let stress and unhappiness overrule you, through being paralyzed by anxiety. You need to learn how to overcome it or at least reduce its effects. Here are eight tips that can help you conquer anxiety:

1. Be the master of your thoughts. Inability to control what you think strengthens your tendency for anxiety. Anxiety gains momentum when you entertain negative thoughts.

2. Practice self-discipline and control over your feelings. Anxiety is like taking a ride on a rollercoaster. Once you start entertaining negative thoughts and fears, they become a mantra that would perpetuate themselves. The best thing to do is to cut them off right then and there. Distract yourself, divert your thoughts, or go talk to someone and have him or her correct your fears. Most of the time, anxious thoughts are distortions of reality. It is best to have someone tell you the objective facts, and show you that you are grossly exaggerating your fears. If they are valid, you can seek reassurance of a happy outcome or have the other person suggest ways to work around the problem/s you face.

3. Think positive. As they say, try to think of the glass as being half-full. Thinking it is half-empty will only result in a never-ending cycle of negative thinking. Thoughts give birth to thoughts, and what you fill your mind with will spill over into reality. Our mental mantras become self-fulfilling prophecies. When we allow thoughts to perpetuate in our minds, they burst forth into reality as, as was said, self-fulfilling prophecies. The key is not to go “I won’t think negatively. I won’t think negatively.” Rather, you should force yourself to fixate on positive thoughts. Write a list of the things you want to be and the things you want to happen in your life, enough that you could say every single morning within 3 minutes, to yourself. Then every morning, when you wake up or before you leave for work or school, say your affirmations to yourself. Example: “I am beautiful, articulate, and I will make that sale today!” Then all throughout the day, when you catch yourself worrying, stop in your tracks, and force yourself to enumerate 5 things you are thankful for today. Repeat as needed.

4. Keep yourself busy and on the go. Never allow yourself to have idle moments. The moment you get up from bed, keep yourself busy right away and keep moving throughout the day. Volunteer to clean the house for the day or tell somebody that you will do the dishes for dinner. You can also read books or magazines, engage in exercise, or meditate; to keep yourself from worrying/anxiety. Being idle will not solve your problems and the moments when your mind isn’t busy doing something worthwhile will only invite more anxiety.

5. Work out a plan and try to accomplish it. Whether it’s how to improve yourself or a plan to solve the very problem that is causing your anxieties, doing this exercise would let you see that you can do something about your situation. This would also help you realize that you have control over yourself. Increasing control over your own life leads you to feel less anxious, because anxiety is an issue of control: the lack of it.

6. Consult someone that can be trusted. Sharing your worries with another person lightens the worries and puts them in the proper perspective. The premise is that you talk with the aim to lessen your anxiety.

7. Laughter is the best medicine. Laughter can ease your burdens. Be in the company of amusing friends or indulge in activities that can put laughter in your life, like watching The Three Stooges.

8. If current issues make you anxious, switch off the television. Reduce the time you spend watching news and avoid watching shows that depress and make you more anxious before you go to sleep. Though professional help is needed in extreme cases, anxiety is manageable, if you know how to get around it. Do follow these helpful tips and you will see your anxieties eased.
