Is it possible to hypnotize a person without them knowing?

Covert Hypnosis

One of the most common questions that I’m asked is…

“Can you hypnotize a person to do something without them knowing?”

Well, the short answer to this is YES. But it’s a little different to ‘normal’ hypnosis.

During normal hypnosis you hypnotize the person first, then you give them suggestions. The induction is very obvious and the person definitely knows what you’re doing.

With ‘Covert’ Hypnosis it’s a little different…

When you use covert hypnosis you don’t need to hypnotize the person, because you use sneaky language patterns that bypass the conscious mind and go directly into your unconscious, where they are readily accepted and followed.

You can use these sneaky language patterns in a completely normal conversation to make a person do what you want… Such as giving you a free upgrade to first class, or a huge discount on your bill. Here are a few examples:  Also go to www.blackopshypnosis.net

 

My Review of Nitrofocus: “Get More Done in Less Time… With an MP3?”

Nitrofocus Introduction from Inspire3 on Vimeo

www.nitrofocus.net

Sharper focus. Enhanced concentration. Greater productivity. Getting into “The Zone.” More motivation.

In the 2011 film ‘Limitless’, Bradley Cooper simply popped a tiny pill, and suddenly the whole of his brain power activated. All of those traits suddenly flickered into play.

He was able to blast through work, quickly and intelligently. He could study more and better than ever before. He finished chores at lightening speed. He could come up with ideas and predictions at the speed of thought.

‘Limitless’ was a great film — and a brilliant fantasy for the rest of us.

But, what if all those benefits were actually available — right now?

And not using pills, but by using a simple little ‘brain hack’ that involves nothing more than an MP3 file?

That’s the claim of a new program called Nitrofocus. Intrigued, I decided to try it out for myself.

The Power of Brainwave Science

Nitrofocus is a new MP3 audio program. It uses special ‘brainwave’ tones to help increase focus levels, and bring about those ‘Limitless’-style benefits.

Now, all this talk of brainwaves initially sounds quite complex. But it works pretty simply.

The Nitrofocus MP3 audio contains frequency patterns, which match the brains natural ‘focus’ frequencies. All of these frequency tones are cleverly embedded inside audio tracks.

When you play the MP3s, and your brain hears them, it naturally copies them – thereby bringing about a natural state of sharp focus and concentration.

This is a scientifically-proven process known as “brainwave entrainment.”

Researched for over 100 years, brainwave entrainment has been used to help reduce pain levels, increase mood, help patients overcome insomnia, lower stress levels, and so much more. The more I learned, the more I was fascinated by the applications. And for over 40 years, commercial applications of brainwave entrainment have been available to the public – and at the cutting edge of this research was Nitrofocus.

I was hooked. I had to find out more. So I decided to try it out for myself.

My First Listening Experience with Nitrofocus

The basic Nitrofocus experience is available as a free 7-day trial.

Once you start, you’re immediately sent one of the main Nitrofocus sessions — the 1-hour “Nitrofocus Classic” MP3 — alongside a couple of other bonuses.

(By the way, this trial literally didn’t cost a penny. If I wanted to upgrade to a VIP customer later on, they would unlock further sessions. But the trial was completely free regardless, and you can even keep the existing Nitrofocus sessions should you decided to cancel.)

The Nitrofocus MP3 instructions are simple: just listen while you work. It sounded like something from a Disney movie.

So, the very next day, I gave it a go. I had to write a few articles for one of the websites I’m involved in. To help me out, I decided to play the Nitrofocus MP3 in the background while I worked. It’d be a great opportunity to trial the program.

I hit ‘play’. The Nitrofocus Classic sounds begin.

Initially, it all sounded rather strange. A series of very soft, rapid tones, all over a bed of gentle ocean-like static. I slip on a pair of headphones (optional) and begin my work.

Suddenly, it’s lunchtime.

And I’d not just completed one article. Rather, I’d completed a huge six articles, many of which I’d been putting off for weeks. I’d also completely cleared my inbox, and sat there wondering what to do next. I’d already finished the next 2-3 days work, with effortlessly and with zero stress and resistance.

At first, I didn’t credit it to Nitrofocus. I put it down to one of those “good runs” that writers sometimes (although rarely!) get.

I left my office early, and decided to spend time with my family the rest of the day, instead of indulging in even more work. I actually feel reluctant in taking off the headphones. The sounds are so immersive, like a cuddly comfort blanket, I feel I just want to leave it playing.

Encouraged, I decide to take my experimenting to the next level.

Blasting Through Messages, Chores and Reading

Over the next few days, I decided to continue using Nitrofocus, and measure the difference it made to my day.

I listened regularly to this simple 1-hour Nitrofocus MP3, all while doing any task that I needed to get in ‘The Zone’ with. And it started making a huge difference in my life.

I began blasting through my work quicker than ever before. I blitzed through my inbox, my writing, my project planning, my creative work, and so much more. Suddenly things just became easier. I listened while doing house chores. I got through them in minutes, and time just fly by, when it would’ve otherwise been a real drag. I used it when reading, and managed to get through around three business books within a single hour.

The motto of Nitrofocus is “Get more done, in less time” — and, at least in my experience, the statement was really holding true.

Just in case you were wondering, the Nitrofocus MP3 can be played on loop while you work. You can use it with or without headphones. And it includes special “white noise” sounds to help block out background distractions that may be sucking away at your focus levels.

Within the first week of listening, it’s fair to say that Nitrofocus doubled — perhaps even tripled — my productivity, all without any of the downsides usually associated with overworking. I experienced zero stress. To the contrary, I felt happy, breezy, refreshed and content.

Then, my account got unlocked…

Exploring the Full Nitrofocus VIP Program

I decided to continue beyond my 7-day free trial.

The friendly people behind the site sent me a few emails regarding this process, and upgraded my account to a Nitrofocus VIP account. The total cost was $97.

That’s when the full program suddenly becomes available to you. And then WOW. I was impressed. This was where all the real value existed.

The full Nitrofocus program contains 5 main Nitrofocus MP3 sessions, each lasting 1 full hour. These are Nitrofocus Classic, Nitrofocus Digital, Nitrofocus Easy, Nitrofocus Workout and Nitrofocus Ocean.

You use all of them just like the original Nitrofocus Classic MP3, however they each have their own different styles, so you can choose the one which most matches your mood.

For example, Nitrofocus Workout I found to be just brilliant for using at the gym, or when doing household chores. It was a high-energy Ibiza-style workout mix that just had me pumping. And Nitrofocus Ocean was a more relaxing session, which I tended to use more when writing in the evenings.

They all do the same task of sharpening your focus and rocketing your productivity — but each have their own unique style to match how you feel in that moment. Just choose the one you want to listen to!

The full Nitrofocus program also contains a 50-page user guide, and 7 supporting ‘brainwave’ MP3s.

These are: the 5-Minute Break MP3, the 10-Minute Break MP3, the Brain Booster MP3, the Focus Gym MP3, the Memory Commit MP3, the Analytical Builder MP3, and the Anxiety Reducer MP3.

These sessions are all intended to support your use with the main Nitrofocus program. The 10-Minute Break MP3, for example, I found incredibly relaxing, and it made for a nice break between those super-productive hours of using the main Nitrofocus MP3s. Memory Commit helped me commit a full speech I was working on to memory, and Anxiety Reducer helped me to calm down just before delivering it.

When I first heard of Nitrofocus, I had thought it was just a simple, single MP3. I was wrong. Nitrofocus is an entire brainwave MP3 package, designed to help seriously improve your life — all much more comprehensively than I had ever imagined.

It also comes with extremely friendly lifetime support, and membership to a highly active forum, where you can share tips and stories with thousands of other users.

Conclusion

I’m normally quite the skeptic.

Yes, I knew that brainwave entrainment had been scientifically-proven for over 100 years. Yes, I understood how it should theoretically work. Yes, I fell in love with the drama of the marketing.

But I didn’t realize what a genuinely powerful and real-world immediate affect it would have on me. All within minutes, and all just by listening to a simple MP3.

The results using Nitrofocus have just gotten better and better over the past month, and it’s fair to call me a total convert.

I earned back the cost of this powerful program within the first hour of it increasing my productivity.

I genuinely now see it as a no-brainer, and I’ve already recommended it to several of my closest friends. From housewives to executives, and everyone in-between: if you want to get more done in less time, then the Nitrofocus program is absolutely for you.

It’s “Limitless” — but without the risk of taking a pill.

Just hit play, and watch your life change. It literally couldn’t be easier.

My recommendation: Buy it!

PS. I wrote this review in exactly 12 minutes 🙂

Pros – Rapid results. Sharpens focus like nothing else. And it really works!
Cons – Download only (no audio CD version). No telephone support.

8 Tips to Ensure Life Success

Personal goal setting is one of the best things you can do if you truly desire to be successful in life. Sadly, only a small percentage of people actually make goals for themselves regularly. But those are the most successful people you will meet!

Following are eight tips to help you use personal goal setting to achieve those things that are truly important to you.

1. Put your goals in writing – this will solidify them and make them very real. It also is the first step, and taking action is a key factor in reaching your goals. Writing them down also makes them more real. Unwritten goals with no game plan are really nothing more than wishes. And wishes don’t get you very far – but written goals will!

2. Prioritize them – When it comes to personal goal setting, it is essential that you prioritize your goals. Decide which ones are the most crucial for you to achieve. Those are the ones on which you want to devote the most energy. Those that end up at the bottom of your list may not be truly important to you, and they can be addressed at a later date in time if needed.

3. Write your goals down as positive statements. For example, rather than “lose 20 pounds” or “stop overeating”, you might write “reach the healthy weight of ____ pounds” or “eat only until I’m satisfied”.

4. Make your goals very clear and specific. With personal goal setting, if your goals are vague, you won’t likely succeed because you’re not really aiming at anything specific. An “iffy” goal is like throwing darts blind-folded (which I don’t recommend!). You might, by chance, hit the dart board but it is highly unlikely. Vague goals would be things such as “lose weight” or “make more money”.

Make them more specific; for example “make $10,000 per month”. That way you can measure process and you will know exactly when you have reached your goal. (After all, “make more money” could mean that you’re earning $5 more per month – which probably isn’t what you are striving for – right?)

5. Create specific timelines for reaching each of your goals. Not having a clear time frame in mind is very similar to having vague goals – you may never reach it because you take forever getting there. Creating a timeline gives you a sense of urgency, and will help spur motivation. Urgency and motivation are two important factors in personal goal setting.

6. Make sure your goals (and timelines) are realistic. For example, if you weight 250 pounds and your goal is to reach 150 pounds, you probably want to give yourself more than a month or two to reach your goal! Unrealistic goals and timelines are a quick path to failure when it comes to personal goal setting.

A note of caution here: there’s a delicate balance between being realistic and keeping your dreams alive. No one believed the 4 minute mile barrier could be broken – until Roger Bannister showed everyone that it could. And soon after his victory several people began running the mile in less than 4 minutes – most likely because now they believed it was possible.

So, go ahead and dream big – dreams are what make us feel alive and can fuel us with the motivation to achieve what may have seemed impossible (or what others tell us is impossible).

7. Break big goals down into multiple smaller, more doable goals. It’s easy to become overwhelmed by a really big goal. It may seem absolutely impossible – until your break it down into small steps. This is very important when it comes to personal goal setting!

For instance, if you’re just starting college and your goal is to become a surgeon, you may quickly become discouraged at the very long road ahead. However, if you break it down into sub goals (and then sub goals for those sub goals), the task won’t seem so daunting and you will be more likely to succeed.

8. Reward yourself when you achieve a goal (or sub goal). It is important that you acknowledge and reward your successes along the way, as success breeds more success. Treat yourself to something nice. It doesn’t have to be something big or expensive. But it is important that you celebrate each success along the way. You will be more likely to remain motivated and it will make the process a lot more fun!

Find the Problem; Solve it, and have Fun

Find the Problem, Solve it, and have Fun. Life is one shot. Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “If you knew who walked beside you every day you would never be afraid again.” Do not ever say, “I’ll laugh at this someday,” why wait laugh at it now. Enjoy the journey, live in the now; look at what you can bring to the table. Receiving is contingent upon your generosity. Give, give, give, and you will receive in return.

Control your state and your emotions, one outburst of anger can destroy a beautiful day because it will snowball out of control.

The best advice I have received is from my brother Greg, he wrote it on the back of his senior picture he gave to me. It simply said, “Don’t walk in my footsteps, walk over them, and make your own path.” I still have that picture and have thought about that inscription over the years. Those were powerful words for an 18 year old to write to his younger brother. I stepped over his steps and made my own path, some wise and some unwise.

If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?

Hypnotize My Mind

 

 

Things I learned this year so far..

Freedom01

1. Quality questions create a quality life.

Don’t ask “why” questions, ask “what” questions.

Examples:
What is most important to me in my life?
What is most important to me in my relationships?
What do I enjoy most in life?
What is good about this situation?
What is perfect about this situation?
What can I do to contribute more tomorrow?

Or

Who do I love?
Who loves me?

2. It’s the moments of our lives that shape us.
3. Expand your references and immediately expand your life (seek wisdom)
4. As I developed new beliefs about who I am my behavior changed to support my new identity
5. Make sure labels I put on myself or enhancers not limiters. (They must add to the good that is within me)
6. There is no true success without emotional success
7. I succeed when I run out of things that fail (persist without exception).
8. Consistency is established by my habits
9. It is important that my environment reinforces my identity.
10. Nothing has to happen in order for me to feel good (it is a choice).

Happiness, joy, laughter and prosperity to all.

War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it. Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliation and defeat. If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war. It is not popularity-seeking. War is, at best, barbarism. War is the remedy our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want. There is many a young man here today who thinks that war is all glamour and glory; but let me tell you, boys, it is all Hell!”

– General William T.Sherman.

“There are no spectator seats in an ambush.” It is the only way I could psychologically justify many of my actions during war.

-TimothyKendrick

To look back at our lives and try or discover why certain things happened can be what I call an enhancer. It expands my references and may explain some of my actions that have made me what I am today.

1 out of 4 returning veterans with PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder will commit suicide. 1 out of 4, freaking astonishing!!!.

I personally preferred for awhile what I call “suicide on the installment plan”. This is where one drinks massive quantities of alcohol and prodigious amount of pills until you shoot yourself or just die. Well I couldn’t bring my self to shoot myself (i enjoyed the pain too much) I was in Latin America and my friend finds me in my hooch with and empty bottle of brandy and pills and says “do you think you need some help” I thought “no I’m killing myself just fine thank you”.

Like a wounded animal I had crawled off to die by myself. Someone had found me, not my plan This was in the late 90’s so back to the hospital I go for the umpteenth time. It was a nice four walled place in Panama City, Panama.

I had seen death in Africa years before and it haunted me. Ahh but my ego would not permit me to deal with it in “positive constructive matter”.

I had friends who ended it in their own way. Hell, I hand nothing I thought at the time to live for. A paternity suit, the IRS, I’d look in the mirror and after all the “pats on the back”, all I saw was the angel of darkness and me running. I was flat broke.

I was drinking brandy because it was dirt cheap where I was at. God awful nasty but it did its job. I ate when my body made me. Once again I thought, “you chickenshit, you can’t even kill yourself right”.

This began my journey into self awareness. I searched for meaning in my life. It was like when the astronaut “Buzz” Aldrin came back from walking on the moon. He felt like “how do I top that”. “Buzz” crawled into depression and a bottle for many years. Hell, Neil Armstrong refused to talk to any media for over 2 decades. I never walked on the moon though I lived through things that some could not even imagine living through. I was addicted to it and I loved every minute when “the shit was hitting the fan and I was in the middle of it. Then I knew peace, an eerie peace, the senses, and the awareness.

The awareness THAT was what I was looking for.

The awareness was never found in a bottle of booze or pills. I only discovered it in Iraq after bull@itting my way back to a Department of Defense job. I had to see the beast (war) that fed me for so long again.

What I was doing to that point was not working. In 7 years I had 23 jobs. This was from 1998-2003. I was flat ass broke, on the verge of losing everything including my wife We later divorced). I had to get that job with the DOD (they knew I was crazy so I got it). Next thing after 2 tours I’m out of my mind and found drunk in the back of a Iraqi bus. My boss, (who I thought was a prick). Says to me. (After he gave me a rash of shit). You’re done aren’t you? I said yes I’m done. That was it he helped me out of the bus. They got me out of country quickly, Funny just like 10 years before in Mogadishu. This time I’m on a C-5 just like 10 years ago. Wow what a coincidence I think. I had gotten pretty good at lying to doctors so in Kuwait I lied again and they bought it. If not, it was a one way ticket to Landstuhl Hospital in Germany in the psyche ward.

I had finally gotten to a point of enough leverage (pain) that It became a “must” to find solutions if not only for myself but for others who may have these same issues. This is how my first book “PTSD: Pathways Through the Secret Door” came about.

The secret door is our mind. It is not what happens to us, it is what happens within us that matters. It is unlocking and opening doors within our subconscious mind and tapping into our full potential as human beings. Learning that Living is Giving and our mission on this earth is not complete, well until it is complete

Gratitude Lifts The Weight of Anxiety

Let me tell you why the art of gratitude is such a great tool for ending anxious thoughts.

A lot of people write telling me how their anxiety makes them feel very cut off or removed from the world around them. This sensation can be distressing as people fear that they will never be able to feel normal again.
This feeling is common and in my experience is mainly fueled by a cycle of anxious thinking.
A person with a panic disorder or a generalized anxiety disorder will spend much of their day mentally “checking in”.
Checking in is a term I use to refer to how people with anxiety constantly monitor their mind and body.

“Am I feeling ok?” “How are my thoughts ?”
“Am I feeling secure or on edge right now?”

The reason regular checking in happens is because anxiety has such a powerful effect on the mind and body.
People tell me that they can deal with the anxious bodily sensations but it is the anxious mind that causes them most distress. That is what I want to address today.
Anxiety can often feel like a thick fog has surrounded your mind. Nothing really seems enjoyable as you are always looking out at the world through this haze of anxious thoughts and feelings. This fog steals the joy out of life and can make you feel removed or cut off from the world.
The anxious thoughts act as a barrier to experiencing the world and this sensation of separation then leads to feeling even more upset as you fear losing touch with yourself.
So how do you get this anxious fog to lift from your mind?
When someone is very caught up in anxious thoughts they are top heavy so to speak. The constant mental activity they are engaged in has caused an imbalance where all of their focus is on their mental anxieties.
A powerful way to move out of this anxious mental fog is to switch your focus from your head to your heart.
By simply making a deliberate shift of attention to your heart you will find the anxious thoughts dissipate more easily and the mental fog starts to gradually clear.
You can make this switch by practicing the art of gratitude.
I am sure you have heard of people speaking about the art of gratitude and the benefits it can bring to you.
Did you know that it has now been scientifically proven that regular practice of gratitude can dramatically change your bodies chemistry giving way to a more peaceful body and mind.
The Heart Math Institute has 15 years of scientific research proving that a simple tool like the art of gratitude can dramatically reduce stress and improve performance for individuals and organizations.
Many Fortune 500 companies are now starting to use this technique to reduce work related stress.
I am going to outline the technique briefly in a very straight forward exercise so you can start practicing right now.
When you practice this exercise you will feel a lightness and greater sense of perspective on any matter that has been troubling you. This activation of your heart emotion will lift the sensation that anxious thoughts create.
This is a very simple exercise but it is really powerful. Print it off and try it someplace where you can be alone.
Are you ready?

-Begin by closing your eyes and moving your attention to your heart area.
-Imagine a feeling of warmth emanating from the center of your chest.

If appropriate place your right hand there. If you are around people or driving etc. simply imagine your right hand resting on your heart area.
Imagine this area glowing warmly for one to two minutes.

-Now, begin to focus on something in your life that you feel a genuine sense of appreciation for.

This can be one or more things that you really appreciate having in your life (e.g., family, health, friends, work, your home, a beautiful day etc).
It is important to focus on things that spark a real sense of gratitude and appreciation. If you really appreciate the thing you are thinking about, you will immediately feel a response from that area by way of a light warm sensation in your chest or an involuntary smile (remember those).
It does not really matter what you think about as long as it evokes this feeling of warm appreciation from your heart area.
Don’t struggle with this exercise. Everyone has something they can be grateful for. (Remember, the cemetery is full of people who would love to have your problems!)
Do not worry if you are thinking of your partner/family and you do not feel this. Some days it will be people close to you that will spark the heart feeling, other days it may be gratitude for very simple things like the fresh air you breath. It depends on the mood you are in, -remember it is the feeling you after.
The feeling we are looking to achieve is unmistakable, it is a positive change in your emotional state.
I say it is best to do this exercise alone because you will need to stay with this feeling for as long as you can.
Then, when you feel you have taken it as far as you can, open your eyes.
There is no time frame on this exercise, it can be a few minutes to half an hour. Again it is about establishing a heart/mind connection and getting your awareness out of the anxious thoughts and more into your body.
After a few attempts you can incorporate this into your daily routine.
Do it in the car. Do it sitting at your desk. Do it before you sleep at night.
You have to practice it frequently. Just like a muscle your heart will get more accustomed to this state and you will be able to switch into that feeling in seconds.
With practice you can also use this exercise in the middle of any stressful situation. You will be surprised at the positive outcome in terms of your own stress levels and the change in others around you.
This simple exercise can completely transform the outcome of interacting with other people, be it work or personal relationships.
This is especially true where there is conflict or misunderstanding between you and other people. Try it out, see what happens!
Be creative with it and make it your own daily ritual for yourself.
I am sure you agree that it is a worthwhile exercise to incorporate into your daily life. It is my experience that most people do not have the patience or time to make major lifestyle changes. By using this one simple exercise you can make a dramatic improvement to the quality of your life.
The simplest things in life are free and this is one of those gems.

Top 5 Regrets of the Dying by Mark Ling

Recently I read a book called The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying by Bronnie Ware. Bronnie is an Australian nurse who has spent many years caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives.

She originally kept a blog recording their dying epiphanies, then following the popularity of this blog, she ended up writing a book that detailed the top 5 regrets of the dying from these epiphanies.

In this article, I want to present the 5 regrets of the dying and how you can learn from these ‘end of life’ epiphanies.

Regret #1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me

According to Bronnie, “This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams ahve gone unfulfilled.”

The eye-opening thing to note is that most people that Bronnie observed had not even honoured even half of their dreams, and had to die knowing that they could have acheived these if it were not for choices they had regretted making.

The thing is, when we are healthy, we have enormous freedom and time that very few people can properly appreciate, until we no longer have it.

Letting your life meander on, or putting more emphasis on achieving others’ expectations of you could mean sacrificing your dreams, and your destiny that you were meant to fulfil.

Regret #2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard

“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship.”

Bearing in mind that most of the patients that Bronnie nursed were from an older generation where the breadwinners were often males, women who did work also spoke of this regret.

Being a father of 2 now, I can see how this can easily happen.

Kids grow up very fast, and when you are trying to save for many different things (the next house, children’s schooling, etc), it’s easy to find yourself putting aside family time in favor of getting things done at work.

That is unfortunately the way of life for many people and it can be challenging to move outside of this.

Just remember though… The time for happiness is (and always was) NOW.

You can put a price on a house, on food, on education, but you can’t put a price on time missed with your partner, your children and other loved ones.

Always find time. Some way. Some how.

Don’t let work/family life fall out of balance.

Regret #3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings

“Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.”

You were put on this earth for a reason, and if you don’t live true to yourself and speak up for yourself, then while you mean to keep peace, most of the time you’ll actually be stunting the growth of your relationships with yourself and with others.

Regret #4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends

“Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”

I don’t necessarily advocate living every day as if it were your last, but make sure that from time to time, you look at your life and ask yourself the question, if I were to die tomorrow … have I been spending as much time with my family and friends as I should have, or would there be regrets?

Several different research studies have proven that the number one factor contributing to human happiness is the strength of your close friendships.

There have been many studies that back up what I’ve been saying about the importance of strong social connections on human health and wellbeing. For instance, in 2007, the American Journal of Public Health published the results of a survey of 24,000 workers. Their results showed that the men and women with the weakest social ties were the most likely to suffer from major depressive symptoms.

It doesn’t seem to matter whether you have one or more close friendships, what matters is the strength of the connections that you do form with friends and relatives and how often you spend time cooperating in activities and sharing your personal feelings with them.

Just to reiterate, it’s not the quantity of your interpersonal relationships, it’s the quality that counts.

Regret #5. I wish I had let myself be happier

“This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”

If you have any trouble being happy right NOW, then it’s time you started preparing a gratitude journal. Every day write down 3 things about the world and/or your life that you are grateful for. It might be your spouse, it might be the fact that you have 2 legs, there are many obvious and less obvious things in this world to be grateful for, and when you bring them to your conscious attention on a daily basis, you’ll find yourself immensely happier as a result.

Concluding thoughts…

If you think that you are not living according to what you want with your life, then NOW is the time to change for the better. Ask yourself what you want so that you can finally start enjoying your life.

Remember that we are given one chance to live out our destiny and to make a difference to the world.

It’s your life, and how it plays out is a direct function of the choices that YOU make.

Choose to be true to yourself, work hard in a profession that you are passionate about, but DON’T let your life become a treadmill of ‘work’ – especially not in a career that you were not destined for, choose to spend more time with your family and friends, choose to express your feelings, choose to be happy… NOW.

Kind regards,

Thought x Emotion = Results

I discovered again yesterday the power of thought. This time in a negative effect,
Thoughts create our reality.
Yesterday I had spoken ill of someone and as I have said a thousand times “what you give you get to keep”. The old tapes were playing as what I had said played around in my head.
I have a plaque on my desk that states: everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

I commented on a blog about a person who I had no right to judge. My ego judged this individual for their past. Yet I failed to realize that everyone is fighting some kind of battle. My thoughts and putting it down on someone’s blog i.e. (thoughts x’s emotion= result) began the snowball effect of my attitude
It is almost like a rollercoaster at times.
Optimism is learned like any behavior. Everyday we have choices to make. Every action I take and every choice I make matters.
That is a hard one to swallow but trust me choke it down it is the truth.

My day was not the same after speaking ill of another. I had broken one of my own sacred rules of living and in doing so zapped the energy from my body and soul.
The point is not what I said the point is that I thought it with emotion and wrote it down. This equaled the result

I put negative out to the universe and the law of attraction repaid me in full.
My day was not very productive.

The thoughts I had about this individual allowed me to fit in with the rest of the crowd. This was the easy way. Thoughts become things and words have tremendous power. When you get emotional about something it usually comes from the words you use to communicate with yourself.
Thoughts x’s Words = emotion and emotion leads us to action or inaction in this case.

See how long you can go without having a negative thought about someone or something. Ah come on, it’s not that hard. Give it a try.
You make be thinking okay Tim this is nuts. What am I going to get out of this? What is in it for me? This may be all well and good for you but not for me.
Our best thinking got us to this point in our lives today. If it is unsatisfactory we’d better look at and try new things that might enhance our lives and those around us.

Every action is a loving response or a cry for help. I want my actions to be a loving response. What about you?

Bullet 1: I am responsible for the thoughts and actions I take

Bullet 2: I have the keys to my memory bank therefore I must always deposit positive things into it.
Bullet 3: Squeeze an orange and what comes out? When you are squeezed what comes out?

Two Natures beat within my breast,
The one is foul, the other blessed,
The one I love the other I hate,
The one I feed will dominate.
Focus with a burning desire on what you DO want, NOT what you Don’t want.

The Most Important Factor To Obtaining Financial Abundance

moneybig

When you are trying to build a financial abundance it is very important that you examine yourself. I do not mean that you should examine your looks, what I am saying is that you need to analyze your personality traits. You also need to think about what things you are good at as well as the things you can improve on. It is also very important that you examine your attitude towards the world and the vibe you project to others. Also, it is important to know your mental and emotional state. Although all of this may not seem related to the subject of financial abundance, it is. For example, having a negative outlook on life and projecting a negative vibe to the world can push people away from you which can in turn close doors and opportunities for you. Another example could be if a person is in a negative emotional state. While this individual is in this state they will surely hinder their own success with thoughts of self-doubt and low self-worth. One of the most important steps to obtaining a financial abundance is to view yourself as valuable.
