Thoughts Have Power !

He is Always There to Meet Me!
Two friends met each other after a long interval of time. Both were salesmen, earnestly engaged in building up their careers.
One of them was downcast. “I’m doing very well,” he said ruefully. “Whenever I go to meet the top man in any office, he is sure to be out! How can I make my sales prosper? I know this is going to happen to me again and again. I make my appointment, I reach on time – but I am sure I will not meet the person concerned. Invariably, they tell me he has just left! It’s hopeless I tell you!”
His friend replied, “Whenever I go to meet someone important, I surely expect to find him there! I’m confident that I can convince him to do business with me, and I always come away with a successful sale!”


Thoughts have power. Thoughts constitute the ink in the pen of our life. We will do well to remember that we are writing our own destiny with our thoughts!

​How Would You Like to Be Remembered !

How Would You Like to Be Remembered


About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The newspapers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake.  


His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure,his second thought was to find out what people had said about him. The obituary read, Dynamite King Dies. And also He was the merchant of death. This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words merchant of death, he asked himself a question, Is this how I am going to be remembered?


He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered. 


From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize. Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, We should step back and do the same.


What is your legacy?

How would you like to be remembered?

Will you be spoken well of?

Will you be remembered with love and respect?

Will you be missed?

​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?

The Nature Of The Mind !

Just as valuable energy is wasted by spending time on activities that are of no value, energy can be wasted on loose thinking.

Imagine that your mind has an energy measure of 1000 watts at its disposal.

Each time your mind wanders off the project at hand, to a nagging worry, to all the things to do by the end of the day, 100 watts is lost.

Quite soon the entire energy supply is gone.

This is the nature of the mind.

Fail to discipline it and your energy levels will be depleted and your accomplishments will be minimal.

Control it and you will see great things happening.

You will feel more powerful and achieve difficult tasks with ease.

The 19th century philosopher Henri Frederic Amiel summed it up nicely: “for purposes of action, nothing is more useful than narrowness of thought combined with energy of will.”

When Choosing Your Life Partner Is Most Important Decision Of Your Life !

Choosing your life partner — the person you want to spend the rest of your days with — is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life.

Living most of your life with the person you love can be a joyous, mutually-fulfilling experience, but finding and choosing the right person can be a monumental task.

Luckily, it’s something that most people go through, so you’re not alone people who have never been married and never want to be married amount to only 5% of the total population.

By having a realistic idea of the kind of person that is right for you, making a strong effort to find this person, and committing to your relationship, you too can share the rest of your life with someone you love.

When choosing your life partner, remember that this is the most important decision of your lifetime.

The marriage relationship offers 90% of all your support, happiness and fulfillment so choose it wisely.

Consider qualities such as affection, sense of humor, intelligence, integrity, maturity, temperament, compatibility and that indescribable characteristic of chemistry.

If these are present, your relationship stands an excellent chance of great success.

Move slowly and let no one press you into an uncomfortable decision.

Knowledge Is Power !

Keep well-informed about current events, the latest books and popular trends.

Many peak performers read five to six papers a day.

You don’t have to read every story of every paper.

Know what to focus on, what to pass by and what to clip out and read at another time
(many successful people scan scores of magazines and papers, clipping out articles of interest; these articles go into a file folder which can be read in your down time).

Knowledge is power.

7) Have Realistic Goals !

A huge workload can be overwhelming, and this can serve to demotivate.

Having realistic goals and breaking big goals down into smaller ones makes these seem easier to achieve.

Setting Realistic Goals: 7 Keys To Set Goals You Can Actually Achieve

“The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them.

Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.”
– Og Mandino

Key #1 – Write Your Goals Down

Studies and surveys have shown that you are far more likely to achieve your goals if you write it down.  I personally like to write my goals down and refer to them daily to keep them at the front of my mind.

Writing down our goals also helps make them real to us.  If we just think about a goal, it’s not physically real – and it’s easy for us to change our minds.  When we write it down however, the very act of writing helps us commit to the goals – and also gives us something we can visually see and reflect on.

Key #2 – Set Short Term Milestones

Goals that are far out of reach are easy to procrastinate on and put off. It’s fine to have long term dreams – but in the short run, you should have regular mile stones as well.

For example, if your goal is to write a novel, rather than just saying you’ll write a novel this year and leave it at that, instead commit to a certain number of pages or words a month – these short term milestones will help you stay on track, and will make your long term goal much more manageable.

Key #3 – Be Specific

If your goal is to “lose weight” – how will you know when you’re done?  Going along with the above of setting short term mile stones, even if your long term goal is “get in better shape” – you can still be specific such as “be in good enough shape to play football for two hours twice a week.”

The more specific you are, the better motivated you’ll be as you get closer to achieving your goal. With vague goals, it’s very easy to get discouraged, because you may not feel like you’re getting closer to due to having no clear end in sight.

Use specific, tangible words in your goals such as measurements and (if applicable) a date by which they will be accomplished.

Key #4 – Measure Actions as Well As Progress

Sticking with the theme of setting fitness goals, many people I know get frustrated when they set a specific goal such as “lose 20 pounds by summer” – and then fall short of their goal. While it’s good to have aggressive goals, in some situations it may be better to measure your actions instead of your progress.

So for example, instead of setting fitness goals based on pounds lost, you could set goals for the amount of cardio you do every week and whether you keep your calories below a certain threshold.

This is also good for vague goals that may be difficult to measure, such as achieving proficiency playing a sport or playing an instrument. Setting goals based on perhaps 1 or 2 hours of practice a day may be more helpful than simply saying “get better before school starts.”

Key #5 – Start With Just One Goal

A classic mistake that I see over and over, and that I’ve made many times myself, is to be overzealous and try to change too many things at one time.  You may decide you want to turn your life around and set out to accomplish a laundry list of goals at once.

Unfortunately, trying to accomplish too many things at once is frequently a recipe for failure.  For most people, changing too many aspects of their lives requires an overwhelming amount of willpower, and ends up being unrealistic.

I prefer the approach advocated in Zen To Done – set one goal at a time, and then as you get that goal under control, slowly add more goals into the mix.

Key #6 – Schedule In Time For Your Goals

If you don’t make time for your goals, you’ll never accomplish them – it’s as simple as that.  Along those sames lines, generally speaking, the more time you allocate per day to your goal, the faster you’ll achieve it.

Rather than leave it to chance, I recommend scheduling a specific time every day for your goal. I think this is part of the reason why organized sports and personal trainers are so effective for people looking to improve their fitness – the activity has a set block of time on their schedule, and so people attend regularly.

My bias is towards working on goals first thing in the morning – but find the schedule that works for you.

Key #7 – Set Goals You Actually Want To Achieve

Rumor has it that a philosopher in Europe once posted this message on his telephone answering machine:

“This device is programmed to ask two simple questions:

Who are you and what do you want?

Most people live their entire lives without ever answering either one.”

This last key took me a long time to learn, and I think really is the most important on the list.  Don’t set goals because you think you “should” or because they “sound good.”

Look at your life and the direction you want it to take – set goals that you realistically can achieve, but more important – pick goals you want to achieve.
