Power Of The Mind
James Allen in his Book "As a Man Thinketh"says Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes, and man is mind and evermore he takes , The tool of thought, and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. He thinks in secret and it comes to pass.Environment is but his Looking Glass.
A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of his thoughts. Prof.William James points out 'The greatest discovery of our age is that man by changing the inner aspects of his thinking can change the outer aspect of his life.
Thoughts are powerful. Without thoughts there is no life. God has given you the power to think what ever you want in your life. Everything we created in this world good and bad began as a thought. Emerson said 'We are what we think all day long'.Solomon said 'As a Man thinketh so is he as he continues to think so he remains'.You are responsible for every thought because you pay the price. If you think good, good will follow, if you think evil, evil will follow.
James Allen says 'If a man's mind has evil thoughts pain comes to him as wheel the ox behind, If one has purity of thought joy follows him as his own shadow.Every thought is a cause and every condition is an effect. By changing your thoughts you can change your character and by changing your character you can change your destiny.Nothing controls from outside.Everything is controlled from inside of you.So start searching outside and start to search inside. Whatever happens to you is through your thought, so by changing your thoughts you can change your life once for ever.
Positive thoughts yield positive results-Joy, Happiness, Success, Prosperity, abundance, health etc. Negative thoughts yield negative results-unhappiness, pain, envy, Suffering, selfishness, hatred and jealousy.
If you persist in your thoughts of health and wealth, this produces a consciousness of health and wealth.An abundance of everything, Health, wealth, riches and happiness. Our thoughts produce our physical realtiy. Again James Allen Points out the Effect of thought on circumstances. A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated, or allowed to run wild. But whether cultivated or neglected it must and will bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. Like a gardener who cultivates his plot keeping it free from weeds and growing flowers and fruits, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out of all the wrong and useless, and impure thoughts and cultivating toward perfection the flower and fruits of right, useful and pure thoughts.
Finally Allan wrote 'A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely shape his circumstances.
Whatever you want to do or what you experience right now is through your thought. So you can change your destiny. You are the Master of your fate. So breed good thoughts and fill your mind with positive and successful thoughts.

Are You Suffering from the Autopilot Dilemma?
An epidemic is occurring all around you, and there is a good chance it has already found its way into your life. It begins slowly at first, nearly imperceptible. But it grows. In time it can take over your entire life. I have seen it happen too many times, and if you don't act now, it may happen to you.
One Last Month to Make it Count!
Can you believe it, summer is almost over. Did you get to accomplish everything you planned? Did life sneak up on you, such as unexpected bills, a loss of a job or did your situation change? Well, the busiest 2 months of summer are over, with literally weeks until school starts up again. There's a lot of juggling finances as you finish off your summer trips, buy school clothes and rush to the store to buy up all the school supplies you can get your hands on. For the kids the hustle and bustle has just begun, but for the single parent this is just a normal month. How often do we have a busy month like this and we don't think twice about it. It's a regular routine for us, we work, we buy, and we're broke. There's no "ifs", "ands" or "buts" about it. We work hard, play less and fall into an eternal cycle of Single Parenting. Half the time we don't know which end is up, just as long as those kids are fed, the bills are paid and we can get to work on time.
Face Your Fears
Yes, that's me up there! Interestingly enough, I used to be deathly afraid of heights. I'm not suggesting para sailing is the best way to overcome a fear of heights but it worked for me. Sometimes, the only way through a fear is to meet it head on. That's what I did in this case.

Succeed Like the Super-Successful
Two undeniable traits of the super-successful are: their belief in self, and an uncompromising expectation that they will succeed ... no matter what. Their dreams and goals are real. So real, these individuals stay inspired despite any and all obstacles before them. The super-successful distinguish themselves by believing and doing differently from everyone else. They sustain an attitude of fervent expectancy and have a relentless passion for success. These two components fuel their entire belief system. So, just what is the belief system of the super-successful? It's as simple premise: "My goals are well on their way to being achieved. It's a "done-deal!"
How to Stay Motivated - Part 1
As a "Motivation Trainer" for over 20 years, I have researched the subject of "Motivation." It is talked about a lot, but not very much is taught or written about it. It seems to be a word that eludes us. I often here people say: "Can you motivate me?" or "I need motivating." or "I've lost my motivation."
Five Ways to Expand Your Comfort Zone
Expanding your comfort zone isn't quite the same as building self-confidence. However, the two do fit together rather nicely. The one begets the other. So many people feel stuck in a rut... bored from a routine that is safe and comfortable but not very exciting. Fear of falling flat on your face or of looking foolish stops you from reaching out beyond that cozy little life you've created for yourself. If your goal is to expand your comfort zone, then you must think positive while doing these. Remember that nothing really bad can happen to you if you are smart in how you go about trying new things. It's all just new adventures. Become like a curious child and have some fun.
Want Real Change in Your Life? Take Action!
It's easy to begin a year with analysis: months, days and even years of "thinking." Many of us would like to believe that "reaching goals" begins with an armchair, a self-help book and a beer. But if you really want to see some change, remember that action creates energy.
Awaken The Sleeping Attitude Within You!

Day Dream Believer
I am sure you, just like the rest of us, experienced all sorts of day dreams when you were younger.

Who Is The Inner Critic?
The inner critic is that voice inside your head that tells you that you aren't good enough, smart enough, talented enough, pretty enough, or strong enough. It nags and natters at you to the point that your self confidence and sense of bravery is destroyed. You are convinced that the voice is correct and that you really don't have what it takes to live out your wildest dreams. As time goes on, you quit setting meaningful goals. You become resigned to a life of mediocrity and dullness.
Why You Dont Ned Motivation
As a life coach, I often hear people say they lack motivation ? in fact, the "motivation discussion" is almost a ritual with my new clients.

As a result, you blame yourself; you get stuck in your disappointment, your guilt, or your frustration ? further and further away from your goal.
