Power to create: Planning

Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.
Gloria Steinem

Are you living the life you really want to live? Do you know exactly what the kind of life you would want to live is?
Don’t you realize that you have the power to create your life?

More likely than not, I can guess your answer to the first question is “no” and to the second question, your  answer is “yes”. I would challenge you however  and say that it is more probable that you are not living the life you want and that, in actual fact, you have only a vague idea of the kind of life you really want.

As a matter of fact, in 97% of cases I would be right because it has been shown time and time again according to the Internet world stat and Stephen Shapiro’s Stat it’s been said that only 3% of any given population will excel in any given circumstances — their resolutions.

What’s your drive? (3 mins)

Whatever your passion is, keep doing it. Don’t waste time chasing after success or comparing yourself to others. Every flower blooms at a different pace. Excel at doing what your passion is and only focus on perfecting it. Eventually people will see
what you are great at doing,
and if you are truly great, success will come chasing
after you.
Suzy Kassem

When asked during an interview how he managed to reach the top as a professional bodybuilder and Hollywood actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger
replied with a single word, “Drive!” Imagine how it could feel to drive your own car. Now, imagine how it would feel when you drive a car but lost in search of a given location.
Everyone’s life is been driven by something. Ever sat and wondered what drives you to do what you do every day? For me, it’s the promise of growth, the promise of change, hope and the desire to be more than what I am at present.

Book Review: 7 Things resilient people do differently (4mins)

2-sentence Summary

The 7 habits of emotionally resilient people explored in this book will give you the tools to master your emotions by ensuring your emotions are the passengers in the car rather than the driver. It clearly points out the differences between a resilient and non-resilient person.

Emotional resilient people who are no longer held back by limiting emotions–no matter how tempting, achieve more success in every area of life. Akash P. Karia

My 3-takeaways In a glance:
1. Your emotion is your reality.
2. Your body language is the cause of your emotions
3. Take charge of your emotions by controlling your ABC loop

1. Your emotion is your reality.
We have to open and be willing to learn in this context, our learning process begins with an honest acknowledgement of every emotion we experience. Whatever emotion– fear, jealousy, we should allow ourselves to feel it without an attempt to our it away or change it. By accepting your emotions as a reality, it gives you an opportunity to take careful inventory of every feelings you encounter and move on to make positive changes.

2. Your body language is the cause of your emotions

Our body language plays a big role in creating a powerful emotional balance. As simple as our body posture, we can increase our confidence by 20%, boost our testosterone level and reduce stress by 25%. Wow isn’t that amazing?!

3. Take charge of your emotions by controlling your ABC loop

Your ABC loop in a simple context, is an acronym for
A = Antecedent {The stimulus}
B = Behaviour
C = Consequences
The Antecedent is a given thing that spurs someone to do something.
The behaviour, is the reaction that follows when you give in.
The consequence, is what happens or the feelings left after for what you’ve done.

Here’s an example for more clarity. Say you want to lose weight but when you find chocolates around, you find yourself being tempted to eat them even when you’re on diet. But why not toss them out of the house? By getting rid of those chocolates {the antecedent}, you change your emotional response. Instead of eating the chocolate, by getting rid of it is {the behaviour} the consequence? You don’t get to gain more weight.

P.S: Got this book from the author and I’ll say that Akash drove the points home beautifully.

Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve

This is an evergreen, wonderful and magnificent book. Ever since I read it, it has revolutionized my mindset and the way I looked toward life, money and in turn changed my attitude about achieving success. I was inspired by all the chapters two of which I can’t forget are ” I will never stop because men say no” a sub of chapter 1 and the chapter on the subconscious mind because that’s the main thing we need to control.
Below are some quotes that caught my attention.

Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.

Both poverty and riches are offsprings of thoughts.

Who is Napoleon Hill?
Napoleon Hill was an American author, born on the 26th of October, 1883 and died on November
8, 1970. He was an American author in the new
thought tradition of the previous century, and
an early producer of personal-success
literature. At the time of Hill’s death in
1970, his best-known work, Think and Grow
Rich (1937) had sold 20 million copies.
Hill’s works insisted fervid expectations are
essential to increasing one’s income. Most of his books were promoted as expositing principles to achieve “success”.
He was an advisor to two presidents of the
United States of America, Woodrow Wilson
and Franklin D. Roosevelt .

Change your thoughts, change your world (3 mins)

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction
of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary
results. – Wades Boggs

The world we live in is like a sea of vibrating energy. Everywhere you go, anywhere you look energy exists. It exists outside of you
and not knowingly, it exists inside you. In case you don’t know, we as humans are all made up of energy. In our product presentation, we tell our audience that our body is made up of systems (respiratory, circulatory etc.) and systems are made of organs (lungs, heart, pancreas etc.) and organs are made up of tissues then tissues are made up of cells.
Now if you go deeper than cells, you will find out were made up of molecules, then smaller than molecules are atoms until finally we got subatomic particles, electrons, protons, neutrons and physicists right now are finding much smaller particles called
quarks etc. Now here’s the catch, smaller than the smallest of the known particles is a sea of vast vibrating energy. So we humans are literally made up of nothing but energy. Our bodies emit energy, and one of the most powerful form of radiating this energy is through our thinking. So when you think of something, your thought actually release that energy into the world around you. The good thing here, whatever your goals and plans in your life is, the Universe is conspiring to make it happen for you. As long as you think of how, it will happen. We live in a friendly Universe.
As energies attract like energies, what we think of comes to us.
According to Rhonda Byrne, in the book the secrets,

It is as if you become a big human magnet, where anything that you think and believe in
your heart has the capability of coming into existence.

That is why we always talk about  being positive, because positive thoughts attract positive results. You think of how to get something and suddenly you get to meet  someone who helps you out effortlessly.
