Power of the MIND

Our mind is a part of our body, true, but it is the most important part and also the most powerful. We take our mind for granted and we generally believe that we cannot control our thoughts as these come and go without our ability to manage them. But have we ever thought about the fact that we can actually control our thoughts and in fact we become what we think about?

Keep GOING

Life is tough and from time to time we all hit a rough patch when we feel that the problems, we are facing are closing in on us. The feelings we confront may make us uneasy and the perception that the world is closing in on us may lead to a struggle to finding a way out. But we should not forget that there is always hope and we only need to find the way out.

Use TIME effectively

A most crucial aspect of our life is our time and how we focus on managing it. If we can learn to master the art of time management, our total life would undergo a very positive change. The centuries old adage ‘ Time is money ‘ is very true, as time once gone never comes back. So, if we are not able to manage our time effectively, very soon we will reach a state of chaos, with our things-to-do lists getting longer and longer and the stress mounting within us.

Get what you want from LIFE

What is life and are we getting what we want from it ? This is a question which may bother many of us. Of course the existence of living things is one aspect. But other dictionary meanings say that life is a verve, energy, excitement, sparkle etc. so the question may arise whether we are getting those things from our lives and are we satisfied with what we are achieving. Going further we could also say that it is the sum of the ideals we impose on it, or what we demand of it to be happy and fulfilled.

Setting BOUNDARIES

Most of us are pulled in many directions by the demands of our daily life that our days pass in a flurry of so many things to do. This causes us to be under constant stress and strain trying to keep up with the demands on us. What we should realize is that it is very important to take the pressure off ourselves to prevent a situation from arising which could cause us to suffer exhaustion, burnout or health related issues.

Be SUCCESSFUL

We all want to be successful in our lives, some achieve success and others do not, but the strategy that works best for you depends on how you view and define success itself. For most people professional accomplishments are a major part of being successful but some other important areas of our life including a successful relationship, academic achievements, sports or other activities are also key areas where most people strive to achieve.
