To Eleminiate A Bad Habit

All Thoughts Are Magnetic in Nature

"Tell yourself, "There IS a way." All thoughts are magnetic. As soon as you tell yourself, "I'm beaten. There's no way to conquer this problem," negative thoughts are attracted, and each of these helps convince you that you are right, that you are whipped. Believe instead, "There is a way to solve this problem," and positive thoughts rush into your mind to help you find a solution. It's believing "there is a way" that is important."

-- David Joseph Schwartz

Powerful Commands to Your Subconscious Mind

The One Skill For Abundance Life

"The one skill most responsible for the abundance in my life is learning how to effectively set and achieve goals.  Something almost magical happens when you organize and focus your creative power on a well-defined target.  The highest achievers in the world have all succeeded because they mapped out their visions."

-- Darren Hardy

"WE SEEK TO CONTROL OUR LIVES WHEN WE DO NOT TRUST, WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE. Our ego, perceiving itself to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself.

At the root of our need to control, we find FEAR. It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, TRUST AND FAITH ARE ASPECTS OF THE HEART. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind."

-- John Robson

-— Brian Tracy

What Do You Really Really Want

The Only Adviser You Will Ever Need

"Meditation is simply a way to transcend the confines of the ego mind to find happiness in stillness and peace – what we really are at source. You won’t need the advice of an expert or guru; in fact, as with all internal aspects of your being, you are the only adviser you will ever need."

-- Gary Dooley

"And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply."

-- Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

-- Darren Hardy

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
