From my extensive studying of people who achieved tremendous success in their lives – and by success – I don’t mean material things, I mean an overall sense of well-being and fulfillment, I can confidently assert that: ‘Our Inner World shapes our Outer World’.
The ability to master our minds and assign empowering meanings is the most important tool in self-help/ personal development. Every day, while we see more people redefine the word ‘impossible’, it is ironical how most people don’t even practice the most basic principles from the science of achievement.
We cannot always control our ‘Outer World’ – Our bodies change, the economies change, people change, ups and downs are a part of life – But what we can almost always control is the meaning we assign to whatever happens.
That brief moment between – when we get to know of an event and when we decide what it means to us, is the moment of the ‘I’ – and that is our free will at play! For most people who are not aware or are not trained at it, this process is so unconscious and rapid that they might even find it difficult to believe that it can be changed.
In your pursuit towards achieving anything, you need to have a strong mental muscle. What I mean is that as events continue to happen, you need to be able to assign them positive meanings and take results as feedback instead of full and final failure. People, who fail and stop, become content with their failures. People who are absolutely committed to success carry on despite the number of disappointments they encounter. They don’t stop until they absolutely obtain what they are looking for.
Imagine how much more you could achieve for yourself and your loved ones, if you were able to assign meanings at will to situations/ events as they unfold. Assigning positive/ empowering meanings would always keep you in a state of resourcefulness from where you will continue to take constructive forward action towards your goals.
There is a voice in our heads that constantly keeps talking and hardly ever shuts up! What is ironical is that most people don’t even realize the presence of this voice. In fact, now that you are reading about it, maybe you will notice it for the first time! Mastering this self-talk is a key requirement for achieving a stronger mental muscle. Imagine how much more you could achieve in life for yourself and your loved ones, if that voice in your head encouraged you each time instead of putting you down/ discouraging you.
In fact, being able to (i) find positives in everything and assign empowering meanings, and (ii) convert this self-talk from being a critic to a coach and a cheerleader, are key abilities that have been observed among people who become extraordinarily successful.
The objective of designing this course is to enable you to get quick yet lasting results. In this course, you will learn the most key principles relating to positive thinking/ mind control that I have gathered from my extensive reading and experience (300+ self-help/ personal development books over ~20 years).
Once you master these basic principles, you won’t really need to read up any more detailed literature on positive thinking/ mind control. and self-talk. A number of custom-designed exercises have also been included, which have proven effective for myself and many others around me. Ensure that you complete the exercises even if they feel uncomfortable/ tedious at first. Real lasting impact will come from doing the exercises. Once you learn how to do one full iteration of the exercises and are able to take yourself to the next level, you can repeat the entire iteration from your new normal, and continue to be on that upward trajectory, of hitting higher and higher levels.
