Words of Wisdom come to all who Hear! Gray
A positive mental attitude is an irresistible force that knows no such thing as an immovable body.
Time and again we hear stories about ordinary people who do seemingly impossible things when they find themselves in an emergency situation. They perform herculean feats of strength and endurance, things they never dreamed they were capable of doing. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could harness that strength and make it available anytime you need it? You can — if you believe you can. No doubt you can remember a time in your life when you were exceptionally focused on your objective, a time when you achieved more in less time than ever before. Perhaps it was an impending vacation that motivated you to get everything done before you departed, or perhaps it was a “must pass” exam that helped you focus your concentration. The intensity that you developed in those situations is always available to you when you have a Positive Mental Attitude. Napoleon Hill
Here are positive ideas to aid productivity, success and happiness. The ideas are practical and constructive. Go through these various articles, written by experienced contributors, and find positive ideas that you can adopt and use.
1. Improve Your Day with Tiny or small-Meditations
Imagine a page of text with each word joined to the next, with no commas, no sentences and no paragraphs: just a page full of words with no spaces. To read the page, to absorb the information and comprehend it, would be difficult and stressful.
See the example inside the box that follows …
Now, here is the same sentence with organised breaks …
Written information, with no organised breaks, makes comprehension difficult. Well-planned text, with good sentence and paragraph construction, will aid the reader’s ability to understand the information therein.
Many people live each day just like the text in the first box. They rush from one task to the next without even a short pause to prepare the mind for the next activity. This has the cumulative effect of creating a loss of clear focus, decreasing efficiency and increasing stress as the day progresses.
“” Put some mental “paragraph” breaks in your busy day. Between each task, pause for a just a couple of minutes “”
2. Setting Personal Goals
Without personal goals life can be an aimless journey lacking positive direction and achievement. If your life is to follow a Positive Path you need a plan, and to establish a plan personal goals are necessary.
Before you start setting your personal goals you need to consider what you want to achieve with your life. One mistake many people make is that their personal goals just relate to career pursuits rather than to all the important areas of life. This can lead to an unbalanced existence.
To focus your personal goal setting on the various areas in your life, consider setting goals in each of the following categories. They are listed in alphabetical order for convenience, however where each goal category is ranked in importance is really up to the individual.
What is your chosen vocation? What level do you want to reach in your career, and by when?
Do you want to help make the world a better place? If so, how?
Do you want to achieve any creative goals? If so, in what artistic pursuit?
Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to achieve your other goals?
Do you want to be a life partner and parent? If so, how are you going to do this well? What kind of relationship do you want with your partner, your children and other family members?
How much money do you want to earn at various stages of your life? What planning is required in order to accumulate wealth, use it wisely and share the benefits with those you choose?
Are there any fitness and sporting goals you want to achieve? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?
How do you want to enjoy yourself? Are there any interests, hobbies, pastimes or social activities in which you want to be involved?
Write down your goals in each of your categories and consider them carefully. Are they realistic? What is your time-line to achieve them? Are there different time-lines for different goals? Next, divide each goal into smaller intermediate time-line goals that will ,help you plan your Positive Path and measure your progress. These will be progressively smaller goals that will eventually lead you to your major goals. For example, if you are planning a time-line of 20 years, divide goals into smaller goals that need to be achieved if you are to reach your major goals. To do this, set a 5-year goal, a 1-year goal, a 3-month goal and a 1-month goal in each category and set an estimated start month and year for each time-line.Remember, your circumstances at any given time can impact on your goals. New experiences and new information can see your goals and priorities change with time. This is part of the real world, however goal changes need to be scrutinised before they are adopted to ensure that they are realistic and not just a diversion with little chance of success.
By keeping yourself well informed about the world around you and your place in it, and by being honest with yourself, you will find that the quality and realism of your goal setting will get better with time and practice.
Opportunities are all around us 24 hours a day BUT We have to have Open Eyes, Minds and Ears to see them. Gray this book will open them all The choice is yours, enjoy
Opportunity often knocks — only to find no one in.
The world is filled with unfortunate souls who didn’t hear opportunity’s knock at the door because they were down at the convenience store buying lottery tickets. They have never learned that, as Branch Rickey, general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1942-50, once observed, “Luck is the residue of design.” You will be surprised how much your luck will improve when you make sure you are prepared to take advantage of opportunities. How many times have you had a great idea that you failed to act upon, only to discover later that someone used the same idea to start a business, get a promotion, or find a better job? Resolve now to get into action when you have a good idea. Don’t wait for something to happen — make it happen! Napoleon Hill
