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.

“When you cannot make up your mind which of two evenly balanced courses of action you should take – choose the bolder,” said W.J.Slim.

There is no substitute for courage and though the chance of stubbing your toe increases the more you walk,

it is always better than going nowhere by standing still.

Take chances, take smart risks and you will meet with success beyond your dreams.

Give Your Health A Makeover With These Expert Strategies

Overhaul your gut health

The friendly gut bacteria which aid digestion can be depleted by stodgy processed food,
too much alcohol and a course of antibiotics.
Replenishing these bugs with a daily probiotic will see you step into spring with more energy and stronger immunity.
Registered nutritionist Rob Hobson advises taking a supplement containing both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria starins.
” Add a few servings of foods, such as onions, agrlic, leeks and bananas.”

Go Off the Sugar

If you want to beat fatigue, you should cut back on the sweet stuff.
Rob suggests swapping sugar for more protein in the form of lean meat, fish, nuts and dairy, and filling up on the fibre found in fruit, veg and wholegrain carbs.
” This helps balance out blood sugar levels and avoid energy slumps and the urge to snak,” he explains.
” Vitamins and minerals found in these foods will also top up your iron, magnesium and B vitamin levels.”

Boost Your Vitamin D Intake

The nutrient which supports healthy teeth and bones, and boosts immunity: ” As it’s made by the action of sun on our skin, our vitamin D levels b are lowest after the winter months, so it’s important to give them a boost.
” Keep your levels topped up with a supplement and, once the sun is strong enough, enjoy 15 minutes sun exposure without sunscreen to boost your levels.”

Care for your ears

Dr.Hilary Jones warns: “While many of us see the optician and dentist regularly, few think about getting out hearing checked, yet hearing loss affects one in six people – particularly as we enter our fifties and sixties.”

Sort out your sleep pattern

Going to bed half-an-hour earlier can help redress the shortfall.
Dr.Hudson advises: “To get you in the mood for sleep, have a snack an hour before bed containing tryptophan,
which the body turns into the sleep hormone melatonin that makes you drowsy.”
Good sources include a handful of nuts, blended pumpkin seed, oats and chocolate balls.

Spring-start your fitness

“The warm whether makes it perfect to head outdoors for your workout,”
Indeed, a recent US study found that people who exercise outside felt more energise and were more likely to repeat the experience.
So whether it’s cycling or just walking with the family, get out and get moving.

Tackle troublesome teeth

“Pastel lip colors may be a trend right now, but they are particularly unforgiving if teeth look yellow.
So give your smile a boost by ditching brush heads or old toothbrushes, which should be changed every three months.
” And remember to use a straw for drinks other than water – as even ‘healthy’ smoothies and juices can destroy the enamel on our teeth and stain them.”

Sniff yourself happier

” Whether you want to lose weight or just adopt a healthier lifestyle, try this simple mindfulness trick to help motivate yourself.”
“Stand outside and focus on how warm the air feels, the smell of fresh grass and flowers, the sound of birdsong and how much more
energise you feel.
” Actively engaging all the senses in this way will make you feel more present and positive about whatever you’re trying to achieve.”

Declutter your mind

” It’s the season to spring clean and declutter our homes, and the same principle can be applied to our minds.”
“Even small things like streamlining your email and unsubscribing from irrelevant subscription can make your life
feels a lot easier.”
” Similarly, keeping a calendar of reminders and an effective to-do list at hand will stop you feeling overwhelmed.
” The more information you keep outside of the mind (in apps or calendars), the more decluttered and calm your mind will be.”
