Get deep into the habit of personal introspection.

Ben Franklin called this one of the most important strategies for personal effectiveness.

Spend ten minutes every night before you go to bed in self-examination.

Think about the good things you did during the day and the bad actions you may have taken which you must change in order to excel and grow.

Successful people are simply more thoughtful than others.

Daily reflection will soon allow for the eradication of your negative qualities (ranging from procrastination to gossiping to insulting others) and will sharpen the mind.

After steady practice, a time will eventually arrive when the mistakes you makes are few indeed and your personal power will move to the highest level.

How to improve as a public speaker, how to improve your relations with others,
how to become fitter or develop a better memory – all aspects of personal development are dealt with in books.

Therefore, in order to achieve your maximum potential, you must read daily.

But, in this age of information, you must be ruthless in what you consume.

Focus on your goals and read only those materials that will be asset to you.

Do not attempt to read everything for you are busy and have other tasks at hand.

Choose what is important and filter out what is of no value.

Begin with a solid newspaper every morning for an excellent summary of the key events of the day.

Also ensure that your readings are broadly based.

For example, perhaps you may wish to read history, business, Eastern philosophy, health books etc.

Then go to the library and develop the habit of making regular visits.

Read the classics from Hemingway to Bram Stoker.

Read history, with all its lessons on life and read biology for a new perspective.

Look under the heading of ” Success” at the library and you will be amazed at the literature you will find:
inspirational stories of people who developed greatness in the face of adversity, strategies for improving yourself physically,
mentally and spiritually and texts to tap the unlimited power for success that certainly exists within us.

Drink deeply from such books.

Surround yourself with them and read them constantly whether on the bus each day or before you go to bed.

Let them inspire and motivate you.

Radical differences between the way we live now and the lives of our

ancestors are harming our health, but the following these rules will halt the damage

 

You would think that with the advances in modern medicine, an ambulance of food and healthier lifestyles, living in the 21st century would be pretty good for you. But it seems that radical difference between the way we live now and the lives of our ancestors are harming our health.

     At the America Association for the Advancement of science, researchers explained how the modern world is completely at odds with the way human senses, such as sight and taste, have evolved. They claim, for instance, that because our eyesight was designed to spot danger in the distance, staring close up at screens for hours will inevitably cause vision problems.

     Here’s our top-to-toe guide on how to survive modern life.

HEAD

THE PROBLEM: Depression and Anxiety

  If you think multitasking is a good way to get lots done, think again. According to neuroscientist Earl Miller, our brain aren’t wired for it. “People think they’re multitasking, but they’re actually just switching from one task to another very rapidly and performing each one less effectively,” he explains.

  Attempts to multitask have been found to increase production of the stress hormone cortisol and the fight-or-fight hormone adrenaline, leaving us anxious, and over time, increasing our risk of depression.

BEAT IT: Focus on one task at a time and take regular tech breaks. It’s especially important for good sleep that tablets and smartphones aren’t used before bed as they overstimulate the brain.

 

EYES

THE PROBLEM: Cyber-Induce sight loss

 Spending large amounts of time indoors under artificial lights and staring at computer screens has helped produce “myopia epidemic”, with as many as 90% of people needing glasses, according to experts. “We’re simply not spending as much time outside as when our vision system first evolved.”

 “a shift that is drastically affecting our sight.”

BEAT IT: Remember to blink regularly to encourage tear production, and adopt the 20-20-20

Rule: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds to give your eye muscles a break.

 

NOSE

THE PROBLEM: Smell depletion Our sense of smell is under attack from air pollution, according to an expert “Smell evolved in very odour-rich outdoor landscape.”  As a result of spending less time outdoors, the natural scents which were an important part of life for our ancestors – for example, telling them when food was safe to eat –  are now masked from us.

BEAT IT: It’s important to get outdoors more often, to go to green open spaces. Stop smoking as it Impairs both taste and smell.

 

EARS

THE PROBLEM: Hearing loss Technology has transformed the way we listen to music, from huge concept amplification to wireless headphones. But these advances have come at  a cost to our hearing, with overexposure to loud noise the single largest cause of preventable deafness.

BEAT IT: Don’t listen to music at more than 60% of your device’s maximum volume – some smartphones have a built – in safety monitors which warm you when you cross the line.

 

MOUTH

THE PROBLEM: Sugar addiction Paul Breslin, Professor of Nutritional Sciences at Rutgers University in the US, believes our love for sugary food comes from our ape ancestors who “would go up into the trees and gorge on the fruit in season”. However, today sugary treats are available all year round.

BEAT IT: Cut down gradually to lessen withdrawal symptoms; reduce sugar in tea and have fewer fizzy drinks. Stress can also have a major impact on sugar cravings, so try to manage yours. Eating foods rich in magnesium, such as nuts, seeds and even a little dark chocolate can help ease anxiety.

 

 LUNGS

THE PROBLEM: Struggling to breathe Air pollution is a big problem. In particular, levels of nitrogen dioxide – which is linked to heart and lung disease – is at dangerous levels.

BEAT IT: For adults and children with lung or heart problems, and for older people, the advice is to strenuous physical activity. People with asthma should use their inhalers more often.

 

STOMACH

THE PROBLEM: Depleted bacteria Eating processed foods, having super-clean homes and overusing antibiotics, have had an adverse impact on our body bacteria, reducing their numbers dramatically. Scientist now think this change could be linked to spikes in asthma, allergies and diabetes, which have all dramatically increase since the 1970s.

BEAT IT: “To replenish healthy gut bacteria, eating live yoghurt and fermented foods, such as Kimchi, Kefir and sauerkraut, can help.”

 

LEGS

THE PROBLEM: Sitting sickness Being chair-bound for hours cause poor posture, back strain, and weaker muscles and bones. It also slows blood circulation, triggering problems from swollen ankles and varicose veins to dangerous blood clots.

BEAT IT: Sit on something wobbly, such as an exercise ball or a backless stool, to force your core (stomach and lower back) muscles to work. Stand up every 30 minutes and walk around.

 

 

​A Son Who Hated His Father

A Son Who Hated His Father

A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.


As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.


Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, “With all your money you give me a Bible?” and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him.


He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things.


When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.


He began to search his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages.


As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words…PAID IN FULL.


How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?

Never Complain !

Never Complain.

Be known as a positive, strong, energetic and enthusiastic person.

Someone who complains, is cynical and always looks for the negative in everything,
will scare people away and rarely will succeed at anything.

From a purely psychological viewpoint, things are always created twice:
once in the mind and then in reality.

Focus on the positive.

Be so mentally tough that nothing takes you off your planned course to success.

Visualize and firmly believe in what you want.

It will most certainly come true.
