The afternoon always understands what the morning never even suspected.

Everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Every day.  All the time. YOU are telling yourself a story right now!

And this story is simply a collection of beliefs that ultimately makes you what you are – it lays the foundation for every action you take or don’t take in life.  In essence, you build yourself out of this story, one day at a time.

For a while, everything aligns just fine, or so it seems, and life is good.

But then, at some point, perhaps sometime in your thirties, forties or fifties, you get slapped with a harsh reality that doesn’t even slightly align with the story you’ve been telling yourself.  And it hurts!  As you struggle to cope with the pain you’re feeling, you are slapped again and again with similar realities.  It goes on like this until you realize that the story you’ve been telling yourself and holding on to all these years is the primary source of your pain, because the beliefs that support the story are utterly and hopelessly false.

It isn’t easy, but you have to accept it.  You have to seriously sit down with yourself and come to grips with the reality that you were wrong about it all along.  What you believed to be true was just an illusion built on false beliefs – a story – that never really was what you thought it was.

This is your awakening!

Although it hurts in the beginning, it’s a beautiful thing in the long run.

As time passes, awareness gradually becomes the new foundation of your journey.

Life is a long series of choices and if we make enough of the right choices, we will end up with right results.

For example: you can by choice weight 100 kgs. The reason I say by choice is simply because you have never accidentally eaten anything and that means it has been always by choice. And if you choose to eat too much today, then you have chosen to weight too much tomorrow. If you choose to get drunk tonight, then you have chosen to feel miserable tomorrow. Every choice has an end result.
Now you see we can choose what to put into our mind. And when we choose the right thing to put in our mind, we have chosen the right thinking and then the right action and the right action produces prosperous persons.
You see people the way you see your future determines your thinking today. Your thinking today determines your action today and your performance today determines your future.
If there is hope in the future, that means there is power in the present. Everything you do as an individual, and as a company is to give you hope in the future. But I can still tell you that if you expect to win in the future, it’s also important to know that life is tough. I don’t know what your experience has been, I don’t know what you discovered in the game of life, but I want you to clearly understand that life is tough. But even more significantly I want you to understand that if you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you.
I love this story of a man who wanted to sell part of his property to feed his family. A property which had depression and drought on, he expected very little amount from this piece of land. Before he looked for the blockers to sell the land, some people came up to him and said to him “sir, we believe there is oil on your property. Let us drill and if we discover any oil, we will pay you every single liter that is pumped out.” The man had absolutely nothing to lose, but he had a tremendous amount to gain so he said let’s do it. When they started to drill, the pressure laterally destroyed the machines. And the greater the pressure, the greater the excitement because that indicated a tremendous amount of oil underneath and when this oil came out, it came out with such a tremendous amount of force that laterally broke the machinery into thousand pieces. And the next few days an excess of millions of thousands of liters of oil per day was pumped out of that oil well and that was one of the most productive oil well in history. The man became an instant multi-millionaire. How did he?
You see the reality is, this man was a multi-millionaire ever since he acquired the property but until they discovered the oil, and brought to the surface, and took it to the market place, and cash came in, it laterally had no value. You see my friends you have greatness in you, the gold dust in your space, an anonymous amount of freedom and time. Please use it promptly.
Avoid the temptation of giving up and don’t grow weary when you encounter challenges. You need every bit of the challenges, setbacks and disappointment to discover your real strength and to discover who you truly are and as well to refine and reform you to the person you need to be to achieve your desire dreams and goals in life. God has so bless you with many great potentials, ideas and talents don’t let them go untapped…Work on them and it will add more meaning to your life. Listen, Ninety percent of those who fail are not actually defeated but simply quit. Don’t quit! Hold on tight! Yes, it won’t be easy but surely it is possible you can make it happen! Because if it doesn’t challenge you it can’t change you! No matter how bad it gets always have this in Mind! You’re surely going to make it! Your dream is possible! Go out for it because you’re into Win!

The power of self discipline

Self discipline as I present it to you here, has reference not only to mastery of your negative habits which stand in the way of your success, but more particularly to your development and enforcement of the positive habits you will need in order to avail yourself of the six assets you brought over with you in that sealed envelope at birth.
Now let me give you a list of the most important things over which you have to exercise self discipline before you can embrace and use the great master key to riches.
You will have to gain mastery over your tongue by acquiring a habit of thinking first then speaking after you are sure that what you are about to say will benefit you and not injure others.
You will have to exercise self discipline and mastering the common tendency to strike back to those at whom you have disagreement either real or imaginary. You must remember that everything you do to or for another you do to or for yourself. Because your every thought and act which benefit or injure another person comes back to you in kind greatly modified.
You will have to exercise self discipline over all your emotions particularly emotions of love, hate, fear and sex. These are the bigger four of your emotions and they can make you or break you according to the extent of discipline you excise over them.
Your mental attitude needs discipline and control at all times. Lacking this discipline, it can drive away friends, destroy opportunities to get ahead, brings on physical and mental illness and makes peace of mind impossible.
I have reserved the emotion of sex for special mention. Because failure to exercise self discipline on this emotion is probably on top of the list of all personal failure. The emotion of sex is the most powerful of all emotions. And it’s the nature’s greatest creative instrument with which all species of living things are perpetuated. The proper mean of self discipline over the emotion of sex is transmutation, control and direction of this great emotion feeling towards where your purpose is such as the fulfillment of one’s major purpose in life.
Your stomach also needs discipline through the proper habits of dieting and fasting. Because information on dieting and fasting should come from your own doctor, I will not go into details on this subject, except to call your attention to the need for knowledge on this subject.
You will need to exercise self discipline in relation to religion and politics. Because the world we leave in today is made up of people of varying beliefs in connection to both of these subjects. To be happy and prosperous in this world, we must learn how to leave and to let leave. To give others the privileges we ask and demand for our selves. And this often calls for streaked discipline over self.
I have reserve till the last my reference to the most important circumstance over which you must exercise if you must embrace and use the great master key to riches. I have reference to your profound privilege of taking possession of your own mind and directing it to whatever ends you may desire. You cannot take possession of your own mind or direct it to definite ends without a practical system. Here is a system which does not call for a genius nor a great amount of formal education. It calls only for the will to take possession of one’s own mind and a definite purpose to which the mind should be directed. Self discipline by Thomas A Edison made him the world’s greatest inventor who revealed to mankind during the first half of the 20th century more of natures secretes which has been uncovered during the entire previous history of civilization.
Self discipline is on top of top ranking features of all the great religions including of course the Christian faith. And their some people who believe that our major purpose on earth is that of developing wisdom through straggle and not self discipline. One thing is certain. No one ever becomes very wise without the aid of self discipline. And no one ever finds peace of mind and happiness without a streaked exercise of self discipline. Self discipline is the only means of transmuting soul into faith. It’s the only means by which we may transmute the hatred of others in to the emotion of sympathy for them. It’s the only mean by which we may reveal and profit by the seed of an equivalent benefit which comes with every adversity and every defeat. It’s the only mean by which we may shut out our mind from the deadly effects of our past experiences of suffering and unpleasantness. And it’s the means by which we may discover that other self which we carry around with us. That self which has great capacity for belief and does not become influenced by failure and defeat. Self discipline can give us freedom from the fear of death which is the most difficult to master of all our fears. It can free us from the disease of hypochondria, which is the fear of imaginary illness which many people suffer and sometimes die. Self discipline is the means by which we may think our own thoughts, leave our own lives as we wish to leave them and remain forever free from the evils of fear and limitations which we have inherited from the dark ages before the time of civilization.
The creator never gives one an asset or benefit without passing along with it the means by which it may be embraced and used. Self discipline therefore, is the means by which the creator provided us with the method of embracing and using the only thing only which we have unchangeable control, the power of our own thought.
The principle of applied faith is your greatest asset from which you can tap and draw upon the supreme power which created you and runs this entire universe. I want you to remember it because it’s not something I am bringing to you, but it’s something you already posses. Although you may not have made use of it in the past. Now let me tell you what applied faith is and what you can do with it. Applied faith is the mental attitude where you may clear your mind of all fears and doubts and direct it to attainment of whatever you desire in life. You and I and every person were blessed with a privilege of complete control over but one thing and that is the exclusive right to take possession of our own mind and direct them to attainment of whatever we desire in life.
Applied faith is the mental attitude we must cultivate and maintain before we can take complete possession of our minds. It is the means by which we may break the seal of the envelope containing the riches you came with at birth and take full possession of all the forms of riches that we get in return for taking possession of our mind and use them.
Those riches are; sound health, peace of mind, a love of your choice, freedom from fear and worry, a positive mental attitude and material riches of your own choice and quantity. We are now at this very moment standing in front of the gate way which can only be opened with the great master key to success. And I am giving you the closest clue I have yet mentioned must how you may take this key In order that you may condition your mind to embrace and use applied faith, you must understand that their two ways in which you can use faith.
You can put it in the reverse gear and use it in the negative way by allowing your mind dwell upon circumstances and the things you do not want. Such as poverty, ill health, failure, defeat, and precisely this is what the majority of people do which explains why the majority of people go through life in misery and want. Or you can take possession of your mind and direct it to think of the riches came over with you in that sealed envelope and you will attract these riches to bless and serve you all through your life.
It’s a strange fact that most people make negative application of the great power of faith by thinking about and believing in poverty, ill health, fear, failure and defeat when it would be so easy for them just to change their thinking over to the circumstances and things they desire.
Now let me give you the description of one thing which represents the main difference between the successful person and the failure. Take this truth I am about to give you very serious because failure to understand it is the beginning of most failures.
Successful people in all occupations, all professions and all callings have one characteristic that distinguish them from the failures and that’s their capacity for believe. The failures see the hole in the donut but they don’t see the donut around the hole. The successful sees the hole also but they see the donut around the hole. Thomas A Edison believed that he can perfect and produce an electric lamp although he failed about 10000 times before he met with success. He made his belief to uncover the secret he was searching.
Give one guess on how many times an average person must fail before he quits, he fails just because of luck of the capacity for believe.
How many times can you meet with defeat before you give up your goals and quit?
Henry ford believed he could build himself a propelled vehicle which would take the place of the horse and buggy. And despite of the discouragement from his relatives and neighbor and luck of finances, he transmuted his believe into an industrial empire which changed the entire world. Mind you, ford did this with very little education and no operating capital to begin with. Write here let me ask you a question which may well change your entire life. Are you perhaps having an idea or a plan which would be useful to other people but you have done nothing about it because you luck self confidence to give you a start? In other words you now where Henry Ford was before he built his first modal of his world famous automobile. Mr. Ford broke through that wall of fear which may be now holding you back and put his idea into operations by making the use of the mastermind key principle through the alliance with his wife.
Now the question I wish to ask you is this; why don’t you form a mastermind alliance with someone and begin putting your ideas to work for you? Belief is truly a magical word because it’s the beginning of all successes. It’s the very foundation of civilization. It’s the one quality you must develop before you can make use of the great master key to success. To be successful you must become a person with a great capacity for belief. And the place to start believing is with yourself. You should begin by recognizing that you were born with the privilege of complete control of your own mind. You should also recognize that by application of the master key to success which I am passing to you, you can take full possession of your mind and make it yield you whatever you demand in life. Observe I use the word demand not beg. The creator never intended for you to beg anything. If he had, he wouldn’t have blessed you with full control of your own mind. If your life is not what you want it to be, you can change it. As a matter of fact, you can do anything within reason that you desire to do if you embrace the principle of applied faith and you keep it directed to attainment of the things you want and off the things you do not want.
I know what I am talking about because I was handicapped at birth by strong tragedies which keep most people locked in all the days of their lives. And that is poverty, fear, illiteracy and superstition.
I have discovered the master key which gives one the deliverance from all evils one does not want and opens the gate way to the riches which the creator intended every person to enjoy on this earth.
Applied faith is the only means by which the master key can be appropriated and used there for, I give you these instructions through which you may create a mental attitude which is favorable for the expression of faith;
One, know what you want and believe that you can and you will get it.
Two, give expressions of gratitude many times daily for having received that which you want even before you actually get a physical possession of it. Possession starts first in the mind, please remember that!
Third, keep your mind open to hunches from within and when you are inspired to action, do not wait but move on your personal initiative at once. Remember there can be no application of applied faith without action.
Fourth, when you are over taken by defeat as you maybe many times, remember that mans faith is tested many times before he is crown with final victory. And accept your defeat as nothing more than a challenge to keep on trying.
And five, a burning desire for the things or circumstances you want is the starting point of all applied faith. Be definite, believe and act. And keep on acting if at first you meet with defeat.
Six, when doubt comes in your mind, remember that whatsoever a man believeth, that shall also leap. Remember faith is not something you get, faith is something you already have but you may be using it in reverse gear by believing in circumstances and things you do not want and the thing you fear. Remember also that faith is guidance only. It is not a power that will bring you what you want, but a power that can guide you to go after what you want and get it. Remember too that your faith is limited only by your own capacity to believe. You can do whatever you make up your mind to do.
Believe and you shall receive.

Have you developed a habit of personal initiative?!

Personal initiative is the dynamo which starts the faculty of imagination into action in the process of turning ones definite major purpose in to physical or financial equivalent. If you aim for success above mediocrity, you will need to act on your personal initiative because your success is something which you must achieve for yourself without someone telling you what to do or how to do it.
There are two kinds of men who never amount much. Those who cannot do as they are told and those who cannot do anything else. That implies that those who can amount to anything in life are those who move on their personal initiative without being told what to do or why they should do it. People who are getting ahead most rapidly today no matter in what position they began are those who promote themselves to the high place in life by acting on their personal initiative.
The habit of personal initiative not only inspires one to move on his responsibility, but it also influences him to carry through until he completes that he undertakes in a pleasing manner because he knows that a winner never quits and a quitter never wins. A big success is made up of great number of little circumstances each of which is small and seemingly insignificant that most people pass it by as not worth noticing.
Some may think for example, the habit of personal initiative is unimportant but we only have to take a record of some of our great successes to recognize that personal initiative was an important factor without which they would have never achieved success.
Personal initiative is one quality which inspires one to form friendships and to make contacts with people who can be of aid to them in times of need.
I now wish to give you an outline of a more important attributes of a person who has efficient personal initiative to give him leadership in his chosen occupation.
First of all the person who follows the habit of personal initiative has a definite major purpose in life and a plan of its attainment.
And he forms a mastermind alliance with those he works with.
He has the necessary persistence and the will to win to carry him along when the going is herd and when he meets with obstacles.
He makes decision promptly when he has the necessary facts on which to base on and changes them slowly if at all.
He follows the habit of doing more than is paid for, and he does so in a pleasing positive mental attitude.
He accepts full responsibility for everything he undertakes and never blames others when things go wrong.
He can take friendly criticism without resentment because he has learnt to profit by it.
He knows what are the 9 basic motives are which inspire all human endeavors and never request any one to do anything for him without giving that person an adequate motive for doing so.
He never expresses an opinion about anything unless he has thought the subject through and is prepared to state how he came by his opinion.
He follows the habit of listening much and talking only when he has something to say which may benefit himself or others.
He has a well developed sense of observation of small details and he knows his job from the smallest details to the greatest.
He never tells anyone to do anything without suggesting why it should be done and how it may be done best.
He follows the habit of concentrating his full attention on one thing at a time.
His mental attitude is positive at all times when is in communication with other people.
If you ask him a question he will give you a direct answer even if he has to tell you that he doesn’t know the correct answer.
He never puts thing to tomorrow that which should have been done last week because he knows that the habit of procrastination is near the top of the list of the causes of failure.

If you have all these qualities of personal initiative, you are a leader in your field of endeavor. When you come to examine on yourself on the subject of personal initiative, just remember that your success or your failure, depends very largely on the action you take in connection with your occupation. No one should tell you what you should do and also no one should tell you what you should not do. The decision should be of your own and you must follow through and carry out your own personal initiative.

If you work for wages or salary, you should decide to promote yourself through your own personal initiative to the top of the skill in your occupation and remember that your promotion is entirely in your hands.

Let me remind you that there are two types of people who never amount to anything. Those who will not do what they are told to do, and those who will do nothing else!
