You can perform Miracle

Whatever you choose to do today, my friend, value yourself. You are the result of millions of years of evolution. The number of possible connections in your brain is larger than the number of stars in the known universe. Again, there has never been someone as unique as you, and there never will be.

It is estimated that your brain has about 100 billion neurons, and each one of them has on average 7,000 synaptic connections to other neurons.
There are about 100,000 miles of nerve fibers in your brain, and some fibers may have up to 10,000 branches in them. A computer can make one connection at a time, while a reaction in one neuron can spread to hundreds of thousands of others in less than 20 milliseconds.

Your potential for creative imagination is literally unlimited. Through you, the entire creativity of the universe can be channeled.
Though there is no way of measuring it directly, it is estimated that the processing power of an average brain is about 100 million million instructions per second. However, the information processing capacity of the conscious mind is only estimated to be about 100-200 bits per second.

Can you even begin to grasp the raw processing power of the unconscious mind? It is literally beyond comprehension! That's why creativity and problem solving should be left to the unconscious mind, and not limited by conscious reasoning.
You are truly nature’s greatest miracle, and today is the day when you will start treating yourself as such.

Forgiving Yourself is an Art

You Are Your Own Judge. And You Need To Forgive Yourself Now
In the game of life, you are your own judge. The meaning of life is what you make of it, and in the end, you are the one who is left to judge your accomplishments.
However, sometimes we judge ourselves too hard. Holding on to the feelings of guilt and shame is a sure way to limit your potential, in all areas of life.
You have the freedom to lead a meaningful life, or a wasted one. What we will try to do is make sure that you make that choice wisely, and not by random chance.
It all starts with wiping the slate clean. By forgiving yourself.
Think about it…
Have you ever done something that you deeply regret? Have you ever hurt someone, and not been able to get over it?
Then now is the time to put all that behind you.
No matter what you may be guilty of, you couldn't do more than your best at the time. You can't change the past, and you don't need to.
Mistakes of the past should be left in the past. Don’t waste your strength by focusing on what cannot be changed. Your job is making the future the best it can possibly be.
We all have some dark secrets, some skeletons in the closet. You're not unique there.
You can leave all feelings of guilt behind, today. The universe is all loving. All compassionate. Non judging. Anything you regret will be forgiven, if you choose to forgive yourself.
Take a moment to think about what limiting beliefs you really have… List them… Then let them go. Now.
You are unique. You are valuable. And you need to know this, at the very core of your being.
To realize your full potential, you need to consciously and subconsciously let go of all limiting beliefs, and all feelings of guilt.
The time to make that decision is today.

Secret to Success in Business

Here is a secret that may be difficult for you to believe, so prepare yourself. It is an extremely important secret that can have a most profound impact on your small business success, or its failure.

Let's start by asking a simple question...Do you enjoy sales?

The truth of the matter is that when many small business owners are asked this question, they respond with answers like, "No way" or "I can't stand sales, let someone else do it."

Why is your answer to the above question so important? No doubt you have seen headlines like the following, which glorify how easy and simple it is to succeed in business:

"The Ultimate Lazy Way To Start Your Own Business"

"Cash In On A Multi-Billion Dollar Industry In Your Underwear"

"Easily Generate A Lucrative Income While Sleeping"

We are constantly being bombarded with these "easy ways" to make a million bucks. Does success in business actually work this way? Not in reality! Is it realistic? Not even close!

The bottom line in operating a successful long-term business comes down to your ability to sell your product...period. It doesn't get any simpler than that. You can either sell your own product or resell somebody else's product. Either way, your success or failure will ultimately depend on your ability to market it. If you don't enjoy sales, you have very little chance to succeed in business for yourself.

The most prevalent attitude of many new business owners is that their product, once launched, will miraculously sell itself. After all, the product is awesome and everybody will absolutely, positively want one. People should be lining up to buy it, right?

Here is another truth about sales. It will take 5-7 sales attempts to close 80% of your sales. Yes, you read that correctly. That's 5-7 attempts before people will say "Yes, I want to buy your product." Running an advertisement one-time or making a sales pitch to a potential customer once in a while does not qualify as effort. Hearing that first "no" and subsequently giving up means the demise of your business and gives someone else an opportunity to turn that NO into a YES.

What most people don't realize or fail to accept is that it may take weeks, months or even years to get a product to sell according to your expectations. You may have to frequently change your sales pitch, web site, advertisement or even the product until you get it right. This dedication and determination is what separates the very few successful business owners from the many "wannabes" and fly-by-night hopefuls.

The bottom line is that to be successful in ANY business you will need talent and the ability to sell, sell, sell.

Take it Easy - Slow down and Discover your Happiness

In our everyday life, we often hear friends and relative saying that they have no time for this and that. Are we really just too busy? How comfortable are we when we don’t have anything to distract us? Are we content when we’re not accomplishing something, moving ahead in our goals or helping others? Is our sense of worth tied to our busyness? Are we a slave to recognition? Are we lonely when we’re by ourselves? It is important not only to reflect upon such questions but to decide to behave differently.

Perhaps we could set aside five minutes of ‘thinking time’ a day. Some people might just ‘be’ while others may choose to meditate or pray. We might also do well to engage in a solitary activity from time to time or even develop a hobby that we quietly enjoy ourselves. Instead of only reading work-related journals, we should read outside of our area of expertise and read for pure pleasure.

Many of us are performance-oriented and driven by success and competition. We should acknowledge that one day we may be at a loss to know what to do with ourselves when our career is over, retirement beckons, or perhaps we become physically unable to actively pursue the same interests. Can we still be happy even when we’re not busy? We need to slow down and savor life – not rush through it and miss so much potential beauty and happiness along the way. It is entirely possible to discipline ourselves to slow down and be more fully present in each human interaction and each solitary moment of our day.

Being fully present is impossible if we are constantly rushing about, going over our ‘to do’ list or mentally reviewing the meeting we just left. To be fully present is to give 100% attention to the task at hand or to whomever we’re talking. It means maintaining a comfortable degree of eye contact, verbally showing comprehension and asking open-ended questions. Applied to family life, trying to slow down and be more present brings irreplaceable rewards. The dignity of each family member is recognized and deeper relationships result. The next time your child or a young person asks for attention in some way be reminded that nothing is more important or sends a message of love more than willingly giving them your time. It’s a gift of self.

Do not miss the truly important parts of life by being too preoccupied and busy. Slow down! Resolve today to:
• Look for the beauty around you
• Begin to read a book for pleasure
• Spend some quiet time alone
• Listen better
• Spend some time visiting with family and/or friends
• Volunteer your service to the less fortunate.

Find out what you really want

The biggest frustration amongst people seems to be not having what they want in life.

Yet they have exactly what they wished for.

Your mind is like a powerful computer. Much more powerful than anything man made that exists today. The purpose of your mind is to provide the outcome that is programmed into it, by you. It will always give you the programmed result, which is a law of nature.

And this is where the trouble starts.

Most of us have no idea how to effectively program this computer, and those that do, program it with ineffective programs more often than not.

Do you realize that the only difference between your success and that of say a Donald Trump or a Bill Gates is the way that they think?

Whether they did it consciously or not, their thought patterns follow a set of guidelines that led them to the success that they enjoy. These patterns are burnt into their minds, and they will not alter them for anything. It is who they are. Like them or not, they are effective in their chosen fields.

So what does this have to do with you, and more importantly, can you use this knowledge for your own good.

Well, the short answer is "yes".

You can use this knowledge, and are actually doing so every single day.

Your life is exactly as your mind thinks and reacts to circumstances on a continuous basis right now. So the good news is that you are already doing it, you cannot help yourself, it is human nature.

The bad news is that the thought patterns you have running in your mind, are not giving you the results you consciously want. They are giving you the results that you have programmed into your mind, mostly subconsciously.

This is why goal setting can be so important. With a clear goal in mind, your thought processes will at least be aligned in some direction most of the time. This can and does make a huge difference to your results.

Lets use the computer program analogy once more.

A computer will process information based on a specific set of rules and criteria. That is basically what a computer software program does. If you have a program that says if A happens, always do B, you get a predetermined predictable result. You know that a certain input will give you a specific output.

With our minds, not having a goal is like saying, if A happens, do B, or C or D or whatever strikes your fancy. The result is confusion and wasted energy. Spinning around without going anywhere.

Now life presents us with A today, B tomorrow, and C, D, A the next day. If, however, you have a set of actions ready for whenever A happens (by having a set goal) you automatically move toward your desired outcome every time A occurs. You might not have moved far, but you did move a small amount toward your goal, every time A happens.

At least you are moving in a certain direction, that you have predetermined, by simply deciding what you actually want, and then setting a goal to get there.

Goal setting is a huge topic, and not quite as simple as described. It is however very worthwhile, and just may make the difference between contentment and a life of frustration.

So find out what you want, then work towards that goal.

True Desire

I need to put up this little message urgently as I sincerely feel that it is the most important message that I have to pass on to you.

I have been talking quite a fair bit about the path to acheiving success in whatever you want to do. Of course the main ingredient is PASSION.

Many people feel that there is a mathematical formula or a unique step-by-step method that will bring you to success. But in reality it is not. There are also books written telling you to train yourself to think positively and knocking into your tiny brain the message that you can do it and eventually you will achieve success. This again is not exactly true.

The truth is that as long as you have a deep desire to do something that your heart desires, you will go all out to get it done well no matter what sacrifices you have to make. Remember the time you fall in love with the person you really love? Did you ask yourself the question why? Isn't it a tough question to answer? This is because deep down in your heart, you have this feeling for that person whom you want to be with forever. There is no logical answer to it. You have taken every possible step to date this person and show your affection. You will do silly things to make him or her happy. You won't feel that it is a chore. It is the burning desire deep down inside you that keeps you going to achieve it.

Similarly, as long as you have the true passion inside wanting to achieve something. You will definitely able to get it done. You will succeed as long as you know your true desire.
