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.

Be Happy With What You Have !

A contented mind is a continual feast.

Greed and material desires must be curbed to achieve lasting happiness and serenity.

Be happy with what you have.

Place greater importance on saying happy than amassing material possessions.

A zest for life is developed and carefully nurtured through thoughtful activities and pursuits.

Do you really need all of those material possessions? One can develop contentment just as one develops patience, courage and concentration
– with daily practice and sincere desire.

Remember this ancient Indian proverb: “If you conquer your mind, you conquer the world.”

You Are Wonderful !

The following true story captured our heart. It happened several years ago
in the Paris opera house. A famous singer had been contracted to sing, and
ticket sold. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was in the air as the
house manager took the stage and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you
for your enthusiastic support. I am afraid that due to illness, the man whom
you’ve all come to hear will not be performing tonight. However, we have
found a suitable substitute we hope will provide you with comparable entertainment.”
The crowd groaned in disappointment and failed to hear the announcer mention the
stand-in’s name. The environment turned from excitement to frustration.
The stand-in performer gave the performance everything he had. When he had finished, there was nothing but an uncomfortable silence. No one applaud. Suddenly, from the balcony, a little boy stood up and shouted, “Daddy, I think you are wonderful!” The crowd broke into thunderous applause. we all need people in our lives who are willing to stand in a while and say, “I think you are wonderful.
