Wild Horses

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Icicles cast a prismatic reflection from the soft glow of sunshine across the snow covered valley. There is a stillness in the air that seems reverent, somehow, almost sacred. The crisp, cold breeze whispers among the trees as soft, silent snow falls from their branches. The only sound to be heard is the sound of silence!

All of a sudden, the stillness is broken by a pounding sound as if thunder moved across the valley. Snow flying from under their swiftly moving hooves, a herd of wild horses comes charging into the clearing. Their manes flying wildly in the wind behind them, the herd of wild Mustangs roar across the wintry landscape. Where did they come from and where are they going? What is their purpose and what is their goal? Ahh, but there is a pondering that, for now, must remain a mystery.

One thing we do know…for some reason, we are drawn to them! What is their mystique? What is that aura of mystery? What is that mystical power that brings out a longing within us? Maybe, it’s their gentle dignity. Maybe, it’s their tireless strength. Maybe, it’s their fierce love of freedom. You can just…almost…touch it. Wait, I have it! It’s their… SPIRIT!

Spirit is something that inspires! Spirit is something that is magnetic! Spirit is charismatic! Spirit is something that other people just can’t ignore! Spirit is…well, spirit is…ATTITUDE!

How would you like to have an attitude like that? An attitude where people are just naturally attracted to you? An attitude where you inspire other people? An attitude where people just naturally like you? Wouldn’t that be great to be that kind of person that brings out the best in others? Well, the truth is that you already are that kind of person!

Every single one of you reading this article has the potential to be so very much more than you are right now! You have every single thing you need to be magnetic, inspiring and well-liked. The big problem is that most of you just don’t realize that you already have it!

When you break it down into its most basic component, your attitude is how you perceive things. It’s how you look at the things around you. It’s how you look at your circumstances. If you change the way you look at things, you change your life!

Do away with the negative in your life. Stop thinking negative thoughts. Take every thought captive and analyze it in the light of truth. Stop telling yourself you are stupid…because you aren’t! Stop telling yourself you are ugly…because you aren’t! Stop telling yourself you are a failure…because you aren’t!

Start thinking and speaking only positive things! Speak positive things about yourself. Speak positive things over your family. Speak positive things to your friends. Speak positive things to strangers. You will be amazed at the changes that will be made in your life!

Life goes around just once! Enjoy it to its fullest. Happiness is a choice! Do things that you wouldn’t ordinarily do such as…

…sing as if no one were listening

…dance as if no one were watching

…live as if you will die tomorrow

…love as if you have never been hurt

…dream as if it were real

…forgive as if you had never been wronged

Become an artist and paint your life as if it were a painting by Van Gough. Make it beautiful. Make it priceless. Make it remembered by those who come after. Make it a masterpiece!

Ahhh, the spirit of those wild horses! We all have that spirit buried deep, down inside us. Open yourself up to the goodness of life. Set your spirit soaring to heights you have only dreamed of and go where you have always been afraid to go. The chains of your bondage are of your own making and you are free to run loose. Let those horses run!!!

Secrets to Success – Number 6 – Decision Making

Sunday, December 21st, 2008

Today we will learn about “How To Make Better Decisions” By: Dr. Stephen Kraus

1. Don’t weigh “extreme outcomes” too heavily in your decisions

We often exaggerate how likely “extreme outcomes” are because we frequently see vivid examples of them in the media. Extreme outcomes generate many news headlines, regardless of whether those outcomes are good (winning the lottery) or bad (a horrible death from dramatic causes like earthquakes, tornados, and terrorism). The more something is on the news, the more likely it seems. Winning the lottery seems more likely than it is because we see TV interviews with winners, but never with losers. Dying in a natural disaster or airplane crash seems more likely than it is because those events make headlines. Dying in a car crash or a swimming pool (falsely) seem much less likely than they are because they don’t generate headlines.

Bottom-line: For making better decisions, don’t assume that extreme outcomes are as likely as they first seem.

Example: Suppose you are considering whether or not to start a business. As you weigh the pros and cons, avoid placing too much psychological weight on extremely positive outcomes(your company goes public right away, making you an instant zillionaire) or extremely negative ones (you bankrupt yourself and create an Enron-like disaster). “Middle ground” options at both ends are much more likely.

2. Consider failure as well as success

For the most part, we think about success. We make plans for success. Our plans may not be great, and we may typically take insufficient action to get what we truly want, but for the most part, we are mentally focused on success. In fact, setting “approach” goals that focus on what we want to achieve is a key goal-setting principle – fortunately, as I review in my book, over 80% of goals are “approach” goals rather than “avoidance” goals.

This relatively single-minded focus on success has many psychological consequences – some good and some bad. Research has shown that just thinking about an outcome makes it seem more likely, because we then think about all the ways that it might happen. As a result, we plan for success, and typically make life decisions expecting success. Unfortunately, in life, failure is an all-too-common occurrence. Divorce is just as common as staying married. Losing weight is great, but it’s much less common than trying-and-failing to lose weight. Living paycheck-to-paycheck and wrestling with credit card debt is more common than great wealth. The list goes on.

Bottom-line: For making better decisions, consider possible negative outcomes in addition to positive ones, even if they don’t seem likely at first.

Example: Me. I’m a positive guy. Usually that works for me. But not always. When I recently launched a joint venture with a colleague, I knew I would work hard, and I expected success. But I didn’t consider that my partner not work hard and quickly quit, wasting a great deal of my time. I assumed success, so I didn’t see the early warning signs of failure. Had I considered that possible negative outcome from the start, I would have managed my time and that partnership much differently.

3. Get input from others

The “planning fallacy” is the tendency of people to vastly underestimate how long certain activities will take. Again, we expect success, we expect things to go well, and we expect things will come our way quickly and easily. But those around us are often better able to make judgments about how likely certain outcomes are, and how quickly/easily we can achieve them.

Bottom-line: For making better decisions, have a friend or family member review your assessment of how likely outcomes are, and how happy they would make you.

4. Beware “happily-ever-after” thinking

Strange-but-true: people aren’t always good at predicting what will make them happy. “Happily-ever-after” thinking is the belief that accomplishing goal X will lead to massive, lasting happiness. It’s common, and almost always an illusion.

Bottom-line: Learn to understand the true sources of your happiness. More often than not, happiness comes from making progress toward valued goals. It may seem odd, but actually accomplishing goals often leads to a psychological let-down and a feeling of “Is that all?”

Example: Virtually everyone. From time to time, virtually everyone falls into the trap of thinking “My life would be perfect if only I _____” (fill in the blank: meet my soulmate, get rich, get that promotion, etc.). Instead, remember the truth in the old saying: “It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.” (Ursula LeGuin)

5. Get over the “fear of success”

I’ve always felt this notion was over-rated. People talk themselves into not taking action because “If I do, then one great thing after another will happen, and soon I’ll be a great success, and I just can’t handle that.” Uh, right. First, these folks are greatly over-estimating how likely success is (and how easily it will come), as well as underestimating how happy it will make them. Does this “fear” hold some people back? Yes. Should it? No. They should get over it, take action, and recognize that the much more likely “moderate” successes they will experience will make them happier than being paralyzed by fear.

Today I want to tell you something I discovered twice already.

You see, since I discovered the information in the Formula, my life has changed tremendously.

How so?

Well, I have achieved things that are simply amazing, I am living a life that is about 100 times better than the one I was living 2 or 3 years ago.

We are all experts at the Law of Attraction, please do understand that, we all attract EVERYTHING into our lives.

The problem lies on what is it that we attract, do we attract the good things we wish for and desire, or, do we attract the problems and real-life nightmares that we suddenly go through.

The answer is – we attract all of it, there is nothing that happens to us that we do not attract, and we attract it all by our mind.

Our mind (our subconscious) does this for us, and most of the time it is doing it on autopilot, it does not even consult with us if we really want what it is attracting.

The mind will attract things with full force, it doesn’t matter if they are good for and or bad for us, the mind cannot tell the difference, it just knows that it must attract the things that we (or it) believes to be the truth.

And what is the truth?
The truth is everything that it has stored in memory (the subconscious can remember things that we consciously cannot) that has been repeated over and over again.

Examples, remember the last time someone offended you or made you mad with anger?
You do?
Well, you just reinforced upon your mind that thought by the simple fact of remembering it, so it just added 1 more count to the score of “feeling offended” or “feeling mad with anger” or any other negative classification that it wants – again, this is not in our control.

So what happens with that thought?
Every time you remember something and every time that you imagine something – to your mind it is as if you are living the exact same situation again, it does not know your are remembering or imagining, so it counts it as 1 more incident.

What’s with all the counting?
Your minds job is to count everything, and when something repeats many times over it becomes a belief.

So how does it all tie together?
Your mind must prove that what it believes is true, so it will attract it to you.

You just remembered that time when you got mad (if you “think about it” again now you add 1 more incident, this is how “bad” it can be), so the mind added that incident to the count of negative situations of that kind.
If the mind counts too many of those, it makes a belief about those situations, in general terms it will have to do with a generalization of some sort that will state something like:

“all women are bad”
“all men are the same”
“you have to work hard to make a living”

It doesn’t matter what the belief is, it has become a truth to your mind.

So what happens next?

Lets stick to “you have to work hard to make a living”, to our conscious it might mean that we need to work hard to earn some good money.

To the subconscious it might mean “If I want to live, I have to work hard”, or, “there is no way I can make m.oney if I do not work hard”- harsh uh?

You must realize the power of this “beliefs” or “truths” – it means that you have been sentenced to work hard in order to either live or make m.oney.

Your mind then sets itself into that course, and it will not be moved or swayed from it, which means that no matter what you consciously try to do, your mind will always make sure that you have to work hard to get by.

And if that wasn’t enough, your mind has no clue of what “work hard” means, untill you tell it!
But you have to tell it while you are doing it so it can understand the level of work that is required (or the exact activity) for it to be called “hard work”.

So what happens if you never reach that state of “hard work”?
Or if you don’t sustain that “hard work” every single minute of every single day?

Your mind can suddenly say:

No “hard work” = “no living”
No “hard work” = “no m.oney”

And it will make sure to attract it to you!

It will not ask you, it will even go as far as go against you if you say something like:

“Honey, I am going to ask my boss for a raise” or “I am going to win the lotto”

Your mind will see it as you trying to break the rules, as you trying to go against what the truth is as it is perceived by it.

And it will make sure to punish you for it, you are after all, a rebel who is trying to prove it wrong.

And your mind hates that!

So what do I do now?
What you could do is spend the next 30 or 40 years of your life researching all the great philosophers and learning every single thing they wrote, then understanding what is behind it.
Then researching and reading every single book on the mind and the law of attraction, trying to catch the bits of wisdom in each one of them.

Discussing with other great minds every single aspect of those things and researching more and learning more and doing more….

Until you reach the point of “enlightment” where you discover the secret on how to make things happen for you the way you want.


You could just take the easy road and use what others have discovered in order to make things work for you.

I find the second solution to be more productive, don’t you?

I much rather spend my next 30 or 40 years wealthy and happy, rather that in “research” , don’t you agree?

Good, now that we agree you will agree with me that by not taking action towards getting the information is the same thing as “doing the research” all by your own.

Taking action is very important, and it will allow you to live your life the way you decide, it will make the changes that you require in your life in order for you to be happy and have real wealth.

You must act right now because you need the change, you must take control of your life and your destiny.

I hope that what I have talked about helps you reach that point in your life where you are living in bliss, where all good things come to you effortlessly.

You are a success

The secret behind the secret

Secrets to Success – Number 5 – The Law of Belief

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Perhaps the most powerful single factor in your financial success is your beliefs about yourself and money. We call this the Law of Belief. It says simply this: Whatever you believe, with feeling, becomes your reality.

What Successful People Believe

Whatever you intensely believe becomes your reality. That we have a tendency to block out any information coming in to us that is inconsistent with our reality. What we’ve discovered is that successful people absolutely believe that they have the ability to succeed. And they will not entertain, think about, or talk about the possibilities that they’ll fail. They do not even consider the possibility of failure.

Positive Thinking Versus Positive Knowing

You always act in a matter consistent with your beliefs. The most important belief system you can build is a prosperity consciousness where you absolutely believe that you are going achieve your financial goals. We call this positive knowing versus positive thinking. Positive thinking can sometimes be wishing or hoping. But positive knowing is when you absolutely know that no matter what, you will be successful.

The Foundation of Willpower

Another principle related to your beliefs is willpower. We know that willpower is essential to any success. Willpower is based on confidence. It’s based on conviction. It’s based on faith. It’s based on your belief in your ability to triumph over all obstacles. And you can develop willpower by persistence, by working on your goals, by reading the biographies of successful people, by listening to audio programs, by reading books about people who’ve achieved success. The more information you take into your mind consistent with success, the more likely it is that you will develop the willpower to push you through the obstacles and difficulties you will experience.

Beat the Odds on Success

Remember that success is rare. Only one person in one hundred becomes wealthy in the course of a lifetime. Only five percent achieve financial independence. That means that the odds against you are 19-to-1. The only way that you’re going to achieve your financial goals is if you get really serious. To succeed, you must get serious. You must get busy. You must get active. You must get going. Remember, everything counts.

Resolve to Achieve Greatly

Self-mastery, self-control, self-discipline are essential for anyone who wants to achieve greatly. And control over your thoughts is the hardest exercise in self-mastery that you will ever engage in. See if you can talk and think about only what you desire and not talk or think about anything that you don’t want for 24 hours. Then you’ll see what you’re really made of. It’s a hard thing to do but with practice, you can reach the point where you are thinking about your goals and desires most of the time. Then, your whole life will change for the better.

Action Exercises

Here are two things you can do to build a belief system consistent with the financial success you desire:

First, continually repeat to yourself the words, pictures and thoughts consistent with your dreams and goals. Whatever you repeat often enough, over and over, becomes a new belief.

Second, set a goal for yourself to think and talk only about the things that you want for the next 24 hours. This will be one of the hardest things you ever do. But if you can keep your mind on what you want and off of what you don’t want for 24 hours, you can begin to change your entire future.

Secrets to Success – Number 3 – Do what you love

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Do What You Love To Do and Make a Difference By: Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple Computers.

Find your true passion and do what you love to do.

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

Make a difference.

“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Secrets to Success – Number 1 – Perspective

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

Turning Failures To Opportunities: 3 Steps – by Vadim Kotelnikov

1. Get rid of all negative emotions – and lean: There is no failure, only feedback!

“I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.” – Thomas Edison

2. Go into a fresh-start mindset – more intelligently: Given the situation you are in now as a starting point, consider various options: what opportunities for and a roadmap to ultimate success can you see or imagine?

3. Take different views of the situation: Having looked at the scene from your view, look at it from different perspectives, try each of these views:

an optimist’s view;

a pessimist’s view;

an anarchist’s view;

an architect’s view;

a child’s view;

a poet’s view;

a strategist’s view;

a competitor’s view;

a customer’s view;

a supplier’s view;

Salvador Dali’s view;

Charles Darwin’s view.

“Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” Henry Ford
