The Secret Behind Subliminal Messages

180x150_02

What makes subliminal messages so effective? The secret behind them is a fact that advertisers have known for decades; the more people are exposed to something, the easier it is to influence them.

Suppose, for example, that you want to give up smoking. You know it’s bad for your health, it’s expensive, and it’s becoming more and more anti-social. You have the desire to give up, for all the right reasons, but just can’t seem to take it to that final stage.

Believe it or not, your conscious mind is getting in the way. No matter what you really think, you don’t have the ability to put it into practice in the regular course of events. Your day is busy, you’ve got lots of other things on your mind, and you haven’t given the idea of quitting smoking enough priority.

The Subliminal Advantage

Subliminal messages are positive affirmations presented to your ears or eyes at a rate or volume that your conscious mind is unable to detect. Your subconscious mind, however, takes in everything. These messages bypass your logical conscious state and go directly to your subconscious. If messages are sent frequently enough they’ll start to change the way you think, and therefore the way you behave.

Someone who wants to give up smoking might be presented with subliminal messages similar to these:

• I am stronger than cigarettes
• I respect and nurture my body
• I am able to resist the temptation of smoking

Reading these three short affirmations on a page won’t produce any magical results within your subconscious mind. But imagine the impact if, instead of three messages, your subconscious was exposed to thousands – over and over again – for a couple of weeks. All the research shows the same thing: gradually your attitude changes, and then your behavior.

How Subliminal Messages Work

Some people argue that, if you can’t hear the sounds, or you can’t see the images, how can they possibly make any difference? The point is that you aren’t aware that you’re hearing or seeing the messages, but your subconscious mind still takes them in. That’s the reason why subliminal messages work in the first place – because they sneak into your head, bypassing your conscious rational mind, and getting at the core of your belief system.

You’re exposed to subliminal messages every day. You might have the radio on in the morning when you drive to work and keep hearing about a new film that’s just come out. The first time you hear it you give it your attention. As the days turn into weeks you’re no longer consciously listening to it, but the information flows into your subconscious mind. If it’s a film that interests you, this constant subtle reminder will probably be enough to get you to go to the cinema and watch it.

Now think how powerful that process would be if it was something you desperately wanted to achieve, like giving up smoking. Your determination combined with the mind-changing power of those positive affirmations makes a winning formula. Eventually you’ll think of smoking as a disgusting, destructive habit that you can’t believe you started in the first place.

If you really and truly want to make lasting changes in your behavior but can’t seem to find the impetus to get going, try subliminal messages. You’ve got nothing to lose and the chance to gain a new and more rewarding lifestyle.

Surround Yourself in Transformation

By

You can throw perfume, or you can throw manure. No matter your choice, whatever you throw at someone else, remains stuck on you first!

Realize, you are who you associate with. Real Eyes, will see you can only give away what you already have. Real lies, will whisper in your ear if, “I just give it one more good try, this time things will be different.”

Pick your friends, family, and business associates wisely. They are throwing perfume or manure at you, equally as often as you throw one or the other at them.

This is good news. Why? Because if you want to be more happy, peaceful, or achieve any new goal, you will attain the result more quickly if you surround yourself with people who already have what you are seeking.

Like any new language you want to master fluently, you have to practice it regularly to make it your own. Surrounding yourself in transformation is like throwing the fragrance on yourself, the pleasant fragrance you want to magnify.

Lets take an example.

Identify what it is you want to achieve. Now write the desire down on three separate pieces of paper.

Tape the first note on something you will listen to which will teach you about how to achieve this goal. It could be a download you will listen to when you are exercising, a cd you will listen to as you are driving to and from work, or a disk you can play in the background while you are paying bills or catching up on your email’s. No shame in multi-tasking here!

The next note will go on something you will watch, which will educate you on achieving your goal. Perhaps a television show, a seminar on your computer, or DVD you will rent from a master in your topic of choice. This shouldn’t take more than one hour to complete. You want the task to be enjoyable, not exhaustive.

Last, but not least, place the third note on your bathroom mirror where you will see it every morning and evening as you brush your teeth. This message will remind you to associate with people who have what you want. Looking at them, will help you see yourself more clearly. If you don’t already have a friend who has what you want, think of new places where you can meet these types of people, and go there. Your library, gym, woman’s advocate center, adult education class, the opportunities are endless. We all need more good mentors at every age.

When you surround yourself in the visual, auditory, and physical presence of the transformation you are trying to achieve, you will automatically without much effort, become those things you are focusing upon.

Change is not difficult, all laws of nature indicate change is inevitable. Night and day, rain and sunshine, winter and summer. Everything is changing. Just check how many candles you have lit on your birthday cake to easily validate that!

The Millionaire’s Brain

 


When The Millionaire’s Brain was placed on my desk, I groaned inwardly, “Oh no, not one of THOSE again,” and I almost pulled my hair out in frustration. I have readers who actually write in and ask how I can review such books.

But after going through it, The Millionaire’s Brain turned out to be one of those rare gems that actually work for once.

Since this is after all a self-help guide, the content is more or less the same, but The Millionaire’s Brain seeks to be different from the rest of the pack by everything else.

While other products just provide textbook write-ups about what’s going on, The Millionaire’s Brain goes a step further, which I’ll explain more as I go along.

To gain success in this very competitive world, it is just not sufficient if you have talent, or a dream.

If you don’t know how to work it, you won’t get it.

Chapter 1 “Master Your Destiny” explores the concept of responsibility. Responsibility is central to the belief of the success mindset. With responsibility, you know that your choice matters in the long run.

In order to kick-start the whole process, we need to begin from the brain. The brain structure is the canvas for us to work the magic of the mindset. Continuing on that analogy, one of the methods is to keep painting on it i.e. to keep telling the brain to do specific things or inculcate particular behaviors. Only with the constant painting and re-shaping, will the positive behavior be wired into our brain and manifest automatically into our action.

One of the most doable strategies outlined here is the strategy of not watching TV programs – Because they are too mindless!

Come to think of it, watching those mechanical and bland TV programs does nothing to infuse your own destiny into the brain. There are absolutely no benefits at all.

Next on the palette, belief and ideology are critical ingredients as the underlying foundation to the great artwork of success mindset.

You have to believe that the next millionaire is you.



There is no second way about it.

A strong and unwavering belief aligns with the powerful law of attraction and hands you the keys to infinite wealth. It is really that simple.

In addition, to strengthen your success mindset, you may need to give up something.

Not your soul, don’t worry.

It is something very close and intimate to the heart, something which you may have told yourself on occasions, or something which you heard from others.

Now, I won’t be revealing those 2 words here, you’ll be amazed what it is when you come to that section in the ebook. Once you know what those words are, a simple reversal spins the wheel of fortune directly to your way.

It’s worth mentioning fear.

Fear is always the stumbling stone in any ambitious plan of success. Because one takes a fearful step back, everything literally comes to naught – everything from planning, to resource-gathering, to execution of the plan.

Indeed, like what the authors Winter and Alvin expound, talk is cheap. Action must be taken and fear tossed out to the wind. As compared to other products, this is something lacking. They usually come in an ebook, and just vaguely talk about this theory and that research finding.

Thankfully, it is not just all talk in The Millionaire’s Brain. There are exercises throughout the ebook, to reinforce your understanding.

What is an advantageous plus about The Millionaire’s Brain is that there is a Brain Optimizer Workbook to further underpin what you need to do.

Here, the brain optimizing exercises come in handy, which include affirmations, meditations, and many other little things you can implement effectively in your daily routine.

One of the bonuses, The Money Code, is rather intriguing because it focuses on financial success. Now it can be rather difficult for a layman to focus on financial details simply due to the technical jargon. But The Money Code is all straightforward and easy to understand on the concepts it seeks to code into the brain.

The other bonus is The Millionaire Mindset Suite. This is a package of brainwave entrainment audios which eases the mind and provides meditative music as you contemplate your mindset, its creation and affirmation to work to your favor.

I’ve read through countless self-help books in my time and I have to say that The Millionaire’s Brain is quite possibly one of the best, if not the best, personal success development product out there.

It is unbelievably comprehensive and in-depth, yet the concepts taught are so easy to understand and can be readily put into practice and action.

If you look at those “Get-Rich Quick” seminars, what they’re asking is for you to keep on pumping in the capital to play the market, which may turn out to be quite risky. For The Millionaire’s Brain, there is no such high risk involved. With The Millionaire’s Brain, you have an iron-clad guarantee which protects your interests – you will never lose your investment.

And the best thing of The Millionaire’s Brain?

It’s affordable for guys like you and me. You know those same “Get Rich Quick” seminars I mentioned? Those cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for a 2 day weekend event. Millionaire’s Brain is a mere fraction of that… and you get to learn everything in the program right in the comfort of your own home.

No travel required.

And get this, you can reap far MORE at the end of the day, not by the satiation of your stomach, but by the wealth which will ensure the future of you and your loved ones!

You’d be hard pressed to find any success products with such a reasonable pricing, AND with such a crystal-clear promise of a millionaire’s destiny.

Hence, I highly recommend Winter and Alvin’s The Millionaire’s Brain to you if you are determined about seeking the millionaire’s, or to be even more ambitious, the billionaire’s, success in your life!

5 Quotes that Can Change Your Life!

:(( crying

By Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D.

Well, it’s not Monday, but I was just reading a book by Ariane de Bonvoisin called The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Making Any Change Easier (interview with Ariane to come … stay tuned) which has a number of fantastic quotes in it that I believe if reflected on mindfully could very well change your life.
Now, we’re not just going to glance over these quotes, I’m going to suggest that you take at least 30 seconds with each quote doing the following 5-step mindfulness practice.
  1. Get centered — Take a moment to just notice your body here, noticing any tension and seeing if you can choose to let that tension go. Become aware that you’re breathing.
  2. Read the quote twice – Reading it twice allows it to settle in a bit more.
  3. Allow the words to simmer — Close your eyes and see if you can let the words roll around and notice what arises for you physically, emotionally and mentally. In other words, let these words percolate in your mind and body. Do any thoughts, memories, or associations arise? Is there a tension or loosening in the body? Do emotions of fear, joy, or calm arise? Whatever arises this is grist for the mill.
  4. Bring your mind back if it wanders — You may notice the mind going off into thoughts of what you need to be doing or judgments such as “how is this going to be helpful to me?” Just note where it wandered to and gently guide it back. As Larry Rosenberg says in his book Breath by Breath, repeat this step several billion times.
  5. Come back to the breath – Thank yourself for taking this time-out of your daily busy-ness to engage with this mindful inquiry for your health and well-being.
Even if you only get through one quote, you can come back at later times to work with the others.
Here we go.
  1. “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom” ~ Victor Frankl
  2. “Amidst the worldly comings and goings, observe how endings become beginnings.” ~ Tao Te Ching
  3. “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” ~ Albert Einstein
  4. “You see everything is about belief, whatever we believe rules our existence, rules our life.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
  5. “What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters to what lies within us.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ok, one extra:
Hence, there is a time to go ahead and a time to stay behind.
There is a time to breathe easy and a time to breathe hard.
There is a time to be vigorous and a time to be gentle.
There is a time to gather and a time to release.
Can you see things as they are
And let them be all on their own?
~ Lao-tzu
What did you notice as you did this practice? Are there other quotes that are meaningful to you or you think would be valuable for this practice? Share any thoughts, stories and questions you have. Your interaction creates a living wisdom for us all to benefit from.

10 Greatest Life Lessons from Albert Einstein

albert-einstein2

Albert Einstein was an immortal of science who made noteworthy changes and contributions in the 20th century. He was an inspiration for the remarkable scientists subsequent to him thanks to his brilliant discoveries.

Einstein received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 “for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.”

Aside from his triumphant academic career, Einstein was a distinguished teacher not only to the confines of the classroom, but as well as to the globe. His works were indeed immortal and superior from his lessons on the subject of life. For that superiority, everybody ought to remember at least 10 quotes from him, which brings forth valuable lessons about life.

Lesson 1: Cultivate a Curious Mind

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Do not hold back curiosity. It has a reason for its existence. Keep a questioning mind.

Lesson 2: The Worth of Perseverance is Intangible

“It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” The price of perseverance is beyond the corporeal things. It cannot be measured. It cannot be sold. It has no price.

Lesson 3: Devote Attention To One Thing At A Time

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” Do not do several tasks at once. It is in doing one task at a time that excellence is achieved.

Lesson 4: Give Weight to Imagination

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Imagination is cheaper than free. It is in imagination that one recognizes the knack he has.

Lesson 5: Mistakes Are Inevitable

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” More often than not, mistakes are stepping stones to new discoveries. It is part and parcel of living.

Lesson 6: The Future is Not Ours to See

“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.” The future is a result of the things we do today. Thinking what lies beforehand is not a bad scheme, but most of the time the present is being neglected.

Lesson 7: Value is Superior to Success

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” Success is a goal worth striving for. However, creating value has an enduring effect for people to remember.

Lesson 8: Change Triggers Another Result

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. Different results occur when you change the way you do things. Only unwise people will expect a different result from doing the same thing over and over again. Different results will only be possible by way change.

Lesson 9: Information is not knowledge.

The only source of knowledge is experience

Lesson 10: Understand the Basics

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

Exercise to Improve Your Mental Health

 

Nobody doubts the benefits of exercise for physical health.
What isn’t as widely known or discussed is how essential moderate exercise is to our mental well-being. I created an online survey which sought to find out what health strategies helped people who have experienced an episode of depression or anxiety to bounce back from setbacks. I took a holistic approach, and asked people to evaluate the effectiveness of strategies such as exercise, good rest, good nutrition, emotional support from family, friends, and support groups, fulfilling work, hobbies, charity work, as well as traditional approaches like psychological counseling and medication. In all, over 60 strategies were evaluated, and 4,080 respondents were asked to rate those they had tried. Exercise was in the top three.
Research shows that a 30-minute brisk walk (or equivalent) significantly improves your mood after 2, 4, 8, and 12 hours compared to those who don’t exercise (Mayo Clinic, 2008). Exercise also boosts energy, confidence, and sexual desirability (American Fitness, 19 (6), 32-36).
We can’t control the slings and arrows that come our way on a daily basis, but we can control our daily habits. Incorporating moderate exercise into our day can inoculate us from the prolonged effects of a setback.

Why Don’t People Exercise?

People usually give two main reasons for failing to exercise:
  • I don’t feel like it. (This is particularly applicable to people who are discouraged or depressed.)
  • I don’t have the time. (Our relentless 24/7 life usually means there are a thousand things to say “yes” to. An essential element of a thriving life is saying “no” to the trivial many, so that you can say “yes” to the vital few. Exercise is definitely in the latter category.)

Principles to Make Exercise Central to Your Life

Find something you enjoy. To sustain regular exercise, it is important to do something that you find pleasant. The traffic in gyms is 30 to 50 percent higher in January than other times of the year, as people are suddenly inspired to get fit and lose weight. By March, they have returned to normal levels. It’s not wise to sign up for a gym if you hate them!
I like walking because it allows me to get out in nature, it’s free, and you can do it anyplace and anytime. Some people keep a walking journal so that they can write down the new things they see, hear, and smell each day. This keeps you present. If you prefer swimming, dancing, cycling, boot camps, or hiring a personal trainer, then do that. To experience the mood enhancement qualities of exercise it is recommended to do 30 minutes, 6 days per week. Although people with depression often don’t feel like exercising, it is important to go against that inclination.
Have modest goals. Many people believe that to get the benefits of exercise you have to spend two hours in the gym or run a marathon. As highlighted above, this is simply not true. If you have been doing no exercise, start with 15 minutes per day. If you are catatonic and spending all day in bed, just getting out to the mailbox each day is a good start that you can build on. Build activity gradually.
Introduce rituals. Changing behavior requires more than intention. To make it stick, it is essential to introduce daily rituals that prompt the behavior. For example, rituals could include:
  • Laying out clothes each night when you go to bed so that when you wake up you can dress without thinking and get on with your day.
  • As you brush your teeth each morning, put on a pedometer. When you brush at night, take it off and record the steps taken.
  • Set a regular time to walk with a friend or work colleagues. Consider walking meetings.
  • Consider using a free smartphone app like FitnessPal, which allows you to monitor your exercise and your calorie consumption.
It’s never too late to start.

He went through a five-year episode of depression which his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated.
