The Self-Image : Your Key to a Better Life

  • All your actions, feelings, behaviors - even your abilities - are always consistent with your self image.

  • The self-image can be changed

Discovering Success Mechanism Within You

Discovering Success Mechanism Within You

  • Get a New Mental Picture of Yourself
  • Your success mechanism works often take care of themselves and do so effortlessly when you supply the goal to your brain.
  • Many people make the mistake of interfering with their success mechanism by demanding a how before a goal is clearly established.
  • After you’ve formed a mental image of the goal you seek to create, the “how” will come to you—not before
  • Remain calm and relaxed and the answers will arrive. Any attempt to force the ideas to come will not work. As Brian Tracy wrote, “In all mental workings, effort defeats itself”

Imagination : First Key to Your Success Mechanism

Imagination : First Key to Your Success Mechanism

  • A human being always acts and feels and performs in accordance with what he imagines to be true about himself and his environment.
  • You must have a clear mental picture of the correct thing before you can do it successfully.
  • The aim of self image psychology is not to create a fictitious self that is all-powerful, arrogant, egoistic and all-important. Such an image is as inappropriate and unrealistic as the inferior image of self. Our aim is to find the real self, and to bring our mental images of ourselves more in line with the objects represented by our goals.

Dehypnotize Yourself from False Beliefs

Dehypnotize Yourself from False Beliefs

  • Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs.
  • Feelings of inferiority originate not so much from facts or experiences, but our conclusions regarding facts, and out evaluation of experiences.
  • Inferiority and superiority are reverse sides of the same coin. The cure lies in realizing that the coin itself is spurious.
  • The truth about you is : You are not “inferior” You are not “superior” You are simply “YOU”

To-do's :

To-do's :

  • Stop measuring yourself against ‘their’ standards. You are not “them” and can never measure up. Neither can “they” measure up to your—nor should they. Once you see this simple, rather self-evident truth, accept it, and believe it, your inferior feelings will vanish.
  • Physical relaxation plays a key role in the dehypnotization process
  • Seat yourself comfortably in an easy chair or lie down on your back. Consciously “let go” the various muscle groups as much as possible without making too much of an effort of it. Just consciously pay attention to the various parts of your body and let go a little

How to Utilize the Power of Rational Thinking

How to Utilize the Power of Rational Thinking

  • Our errors, mistakes, failures, and sometimes even our humiliations, were necessary steps in the learning process. However, they were meant to be means to an end—and not an end in themselves. When they have served their purpose, they should be forgotten.
  • If we consciously dwell on the error, or consciously feel guilty about the error and keep berating ourselves because of it, then the error or failure itself becomes the “goal” that is consciously held in imagination and memory

To-do's :

To-do's :

  • Picture yourself what you would like to be and have, and assume for the moment that such things might be possible. Arouse a deep desire for these things. Become enthusiastic about them. Dwell on them—and keep going over them in your mind.
  • Remember that your automatic mechanism can as easily function as a Failure Mechanism as it can as a Success Mechanism, based on the data you give it to process. It is basically a goal-striving mechanism. The goal it works on are up to you.
  • We must learn to do our work, act on the best assumptions available, and leave results to take care of themselves.

Five Rules for freeing your Creative Machinery

Five Rules for freeing your Creative Machinery

  1. Do your worrying before you place your bet, not after the wheel starts turning
  2. Form the Habit of consciously responding to the present moment
  3. Try to do only one thing at a time
  4. Sleep on it. [If you have been wrestling with a problem all day without making any apparent progress, try dismissing it from your mind, and put off making a decision until you’ve had a chance to “sleep on it”]
  5. Relax while you work

You can Acquire the Habit of Happiness

You can Acquire the Habit of Happiness

  • Happiness is not the reward of virtue, but virtue itself; nor do we delight in happiness because we restrain our lusts; but on the contrary, because we delight in it, therefore are we able to restrain them
  • Happiness comes from being and acting unselfishly—as a natural accompaniment to the being and acting, not as a “payoff” or prize.
  • Happiness Does Not Lie in the Future but in the Present.
  • Form the habit of reacting aggressively and positively toward threats and problems. Form the habit of being goal-oriented all the time, regardless of what happens.

How to Remove Emotional Scars or Give Yourself an Emotional Face

Many people who have emotional scars have not suffered physical injuries. However, the impact on their personality is the same. These individuals have been hurt or injured by someone in the past. To protect themselves from future harm, they form a spiritual callus or emotional scar to shield their ego.The person who feels "lonely" or out of touch with others also feels disconnected from their true self & life.

  • Emotional scars on our egos also have another detrimental effect. They lead to the build a damaged self-image, which is disliked/rejected by others, and struggles to coexist in society.

  • Give Yourself a Spiritual Face-Lift
  • You can forgive, if you’re willing.

  • Forgive Yourself as well as Others.
  • You made mistakes. Mistakes do not make “you”

How to Unlock Your Real Personality

How to Unlock Your Real Personality

  • What we call “personality” is the outward evidence of that unique and individual creative self, or what might be called the free and full expression of your real self.
  • “Poor personality” or “inhibited personality” are one and the same. The inhibited personality has imposed a restraint on the expression of the real self.
  • Negative feedback always says in effect, “Stop what you’re doing, or the way you’re doing it—and do something else.” Its purpose is to modify response, or change the degree of forward action—not to stop all action.
  • Excessive Carefulness leads to inhibition and Anxiety.

  • The way to make a good impression on other people is : Never consciously “try” to make a good impression on them. Never act, or fail to act, purely for consciously contrived effect. never “wonder” consciously what the other person is thinking of you, how he is judging you.
  • The attitude of being immune to strangers or strange situation, this total disregard for all the unknown or unexpected has a name. It is called poise. Poise is the deliberate shunting aside of all fears arising from new and uncontrollable circumstances

How to turn a Crisis into a Creative Opportunity

How to turn a Crisis into a Creative Opportunity

A “crisis” is a situation that can either make you or break you. If you react properly to the situation, a “crisis” can give you strength, power, wisdom you do not ordinarily possess.

  1. Practice Without Pressure
  2. Crisis Brings Power
  3. What is the worst that can possibly happen?

 When great demands are made upon us, if only we fearlessly accept the challenge and confidently expend our strength, every danger or difficulty brings its own strength—’As thy days so shall thy strength be’

How to get that Winning Feeling

How to get that Winning Feeling

  • The possibility of the goal must be seen so clearly that it becomes “real” to your brain and nervous system.
  • If we keep our positive goal in mind, and picture it to ourselves so vividly as to make it “real”, and think of it in terms of an accomplished fact, we will also experience winning feelings : self-confidence, courage, and faith that the outcome will be desirable
  • When you feel successful and self-confident, you will act successfully. When the feeling is strong, you can literally do no wrong.

  • If you can recapture “that winning feeling”, you also evoke all the “winning actions” that accompanied it.
  • Build Success Patterns into Your Gray Matter
  • Go back in memory and relive those successful experiences. In your imagination revive the entire picture in as much detail as you can. In your mind’s eye “see” not only the main event, but all the little incidental things that accompanied your success.
  • Our present thinking, mental habits, attitudes toward past experiences, and toward the future—all have an influence upon old recorded engrams.

More Years of Life and More Life in your Years

More Years of Life and More Life in your Years

  • Activity Means Life
  • Look forward and Live
  • Life itself is adaptive; that life is not just an end in itself, but a means to an end. Life is one of the “means” we are privileged to use, in various ways, to achieve important goals.
  • Create a Need for More Life
  • We age, not by years, but by events and our emotional reactions to them.
  • Faith, courage, interest, optimism, looking forward bring us new life and more life. Futility, pessimism, frustration, or living in the past are not only characteristic of “old age”, they also contribute to it.
  • Retire from a Job, but Never Retire from Life

Experience More Life

Experience More Life

Whatever your definition of happiness may be, you will only experience true happiness by living more fully. This includes accomplishing meaningful goals, loving and being loved, being healthy and enjoying life, and spreading happiness to others.

There is one ultimate source of life, but it can manifest itself in many different forms. In order to truly live life to the fullest, we must be open to all of its channels - whether that be through science, religion, psychology, or anything else.
