Succeed By Looking Forward
We all want something to look forward to. The best way to attract it into our lives is to look forward to it. By looking into the future with expectation and hope we are more likely to work with energy and even excitement to make that great future come true.
However, far too many of us waste our time fearing the worst and reflecting on the worst moments of our lives from the past. When I reflect on my past I am amazed at how much time and money I have wasted. If I were to spend most of my time regretting this I would feel too depressed to try to achieve anything worthwhile in the time left to me.
Incidentally we can always find some one who has far more to regret than we have. A few years back I lost £27,000 (about $48,000) investing in what turned out to be a scam. Today I read about someone who had lost $48,000,000.
Some people become suicidal when they rerun sad or disappointing events from their past. They program their minds with the failures of the past and keep replaying these failures in the cinema of their own minds. These failures can so dominate their thinking that they no longer wish to live.
Robert Ringer, the best-selling self help author, makes this point well:
"We all have experiences in our past, and especially our childhood, that have left painful memories. There is, however, nothing we can do about them. History is written in stone. But we do have the capacity to control how we think and act today. This capacity is known as 'free will.' We are the only living creatures who can change the nature of our existence by altering events."
Instead of analysing and brooding over our past, we need to focus on our future and how it can be improved. It helps to visualise the future we want as vividly as possible and with as much joyful emotion as possible. This will assist our subconscious mind to give us the drive and energy we need to take action towards this glorious future.
A future oriented attitude will clear our minds of much heavy weight from the past that can push us down into a state of hopelessness and helplessness.
If you are facing a problem, don't spend too much time thinking about the problem. Instead focus on the solution and imagine what it is like to have overcome the problem Look way beyond the problem.
I was at a seminar in London recently where a board was used as a symbol of obstacles and problems. Attendees were invited to break the board.
They were told not to focus too much on the board (the obstacle) but to imagine their hand passing through the board and beyond it.
To succeed in breaking the board you also need to hit the centre of the board accurately and with your maximum force. It is no use being half-hearted.
I was amazed at how many people, including some fragile looking members of the audience, rushed to the front to break the board. Surprisingly, some of the more fragile looking succeeded whilst some of the tougher looking people failed miserably!
It makes sense, then, to fill our minds with thoughts of a great future. It's foolish to worry too much about the obstacles and problems which might destroy that future. With faith and determination we can break through these into clear space.
It is a good idea to start celebrating this great future now and to let our positive and cheerful attitude attract our desired future towards us. It is also a good idea to work with 100% effort and commitment.
It has often been said that we attract what we think about most often. This is good news. Instead of dwelling on what we fear, let's think daily and hourly about what we desire. We will then have great things to look forward to which we will eventually experience. In the mean time we can remain cheerful and expectant of good things.
It helps to recite some great affirmation like "Nothing is too good to be true" or "With God, nothing is impossible." Let's expect miracles and then, hopefully, we will see miracles.
When we were young, we all expected miracles. Let's try to keep that same mindset as we get older. If we fill our minds with happy thoughts, like Peter Pan, we too can fly.

Be Successful : Take Back Control of Your Life
What would happen if you lived your life by design rather than by default?
Is Your Life A Minefield ?
Why everything has to be so hard? What have I done to deserve such torment and pain? I seems like everything and everyone around me have conspired against me.
Success Is Easy, But So Is Neglect
People often ask me how I became successful in that six-year period of time while many of the people I knew did not.
What is Failure Anyway?
Does it surprise you that only 400 cokes were sold the first year; Albert Einstein's Ph.D. dissertation was rejected; Henry Ford had two bankruptcies before his famous success; or Ulysses S. Grant was working as a handyman, written off as a failure, eight years before becoming President of the United States?
Achieve Success Now - What Are You Waiting For?
Are you ready to finally realize your dream? I'm talking about the desire that you carry deep down inside of you that you attribute to some adolescent fancy. It's the dream that isn't practical and can't possible be fulfilled. Well, it is possible to fulfill it and the time to do so is now.
The Best Test
I spoke to a group of salespeople in Kansas City last week as they kicked off their new team. It was exciting to see them get excited about making a difference through their work.
Price of Success
We're all adults, and most of us probably like to think that we're fairly well-informed when it comes to basic life wisdom. We're familiar with the benefits of a bird in the hand over two in the bush, we know the risks of putting all our eggs in one basket, and of course we'd never dream of judging a book by its cover. Right?
How to Find Out What You Want from Life
No matter how young or old you are, you must have gotten to a point in your life when you have to take a big decision, which will probably affect your entire existence. There is no doubt that there are certain moments in life when you feel helpless and disoriented and believe you could use a hand in order to figure out how to proceed with your life.
Fear of Success? Fear of Failure?

The DNA of Top Achievers
Of course by now we are all becoming aware of DNA. It is the source code that determines who we are. When we look at DNA we can see what a person will look like, what diseases they may come down with, etc. This has been a tremendous breakthrough for scientists and will continue to be so for some time, I think.
The BIG Secret to Success in Anything You Do
There is one big "secret" to success that can help you achieve anything you want. It's the one skill that all ultra-successful people have. If you can master it, you can have or become anything you want... often in a very short amount of time! So what is this incredibly powerful skill? It is the ability to concentrate. In other words, the ability to focus all of your mental powers on one important task until that task is completed, and completed well.
Clues for Success: Finding Answers Right in Front of Your Face
An old fable tells about a religious man and a flood. As the water began to rise, the man's neighbor came by in a boat and offered to take him to safer ground. He politely declined, "God will save me." When the water had risen up to his second floor windows, authorities came by in a rescue boat. They shouted impatiently at him to get into the boat, but he sent them off, saying, "God will watch out for me." Later, as he sat on his roof with water lapping at its edges, a military helicopter hovered above him; a rescue officer was lowered to bring him up into the aircraft. Again he refused . . . and later drowned. When he reached heaven, he was furious and demanded a meeting with God.
What Are the Nine Bodyparts of a Better Life?
Your Head, think about what you want and move towards it Everyday we have several opportunities to make a change for the better, the worse or just say the same and everytime we make a decision in one of these directions. At breakfast you could have oatmeal, or toast and jam, or you could have a coffee and a donut, your decision could often be better. When you get to work you could take the elevator only part way and climb a few flights in the very empty stairwell or you could choose to take an elevator to your floor. Don't feel too terribly bad about all of your decisions as you should know that not many others are making a great decision every time either. I ride my bike to work every day and in a building of 1000 people I am one of three bike riders. Look at these decisions one at a time and if it is a little easier carry around a notebook and write down things to do better. Try to resolve today to just do a few things alittle better than you did yesterday.

Cool Facts: Walt Disney went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland and was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas.
Creating Your Own Success Support System
People who are on the same journey tend to band together, and the journey of life is no different. Throughout the Internet and in the real world, like-minded travelers have joined to form support groups, newsgroups, goal-buddy groups, chat rooms, tele-groups (using conference call telephone bridge lines) coaching groups, and mailing lists (email or snail mail) - just to name a handful of the available support resources - all dedicated to making sure that every member or participant has a real chance to make to their goals a reality. You can find these groups through Internet searches, the "community events" section of your local paper and by word of mouth, and I heartily suggest that you do.
