There is no sin in having money, but problems arose if you worry too much about them. Live by a set of principles which follow a vision— Do you know what to do with your life?
Do you have a map? And last but not least — Self-knowledge. Are you the name, the profession, the religion, or any other concept that society has imposed upon you?
If you remain speechless, then probably you can move one step further and discover your real nature. The author recalls the importance of one ancient story. Back in the days, when Greece had one of the few civilized only societies Socrates was approached by one of his students.
Togetherly they laid the foundation of true wisdom. How to become wise — the student confusedly asked. A few minutes later, they went to a beautiful nearby lake. The student fought fiercely to get out alive from that awkward situation. Ultimately, Socrates released him. In shock, the young man was still fighting for breath. Live life with the same intensity as you did this day.
Wisdom is just a tool for demonstrating stability, empathy, and determination. Setting your goals is a mind work, meaning that the intensity of thoughts shapes your goals and plans. This call is a metaphor which illustrates the desperate need for a change. Their underachievement is a consequence of something, and Brian is here to help discover and break that underdog status. Your mind has unlimited capacity, but your thoughts drag you to the inward misery.
About Brian Tracy During the 40s, when dark forces tried to conquer the world, Brian Tracy the motivational master was born. He spent his childhood in Charlottetown, Canada — the place of its birth.
Despite being recognized as the modern father of spirituality, Brian remains with both feet on the ground. In numerous occasions, he endlessly promotes the idea of unity and harmony. In the 80s, a company called Brian Tracy International started with its operational activities. Effort and energy — Choose health before wealth. Invest more of your time and energy on adopting healthy habits.
The surroundings — Are you surrounded by love and support? There is no sin in having money, but problems arose if you worry too much about them. Live by a set of principles which follow a vision— Do you know what to do with your life? Do you have a map? And last but not least — Self-knowledge. Are you the name, the profession, the religion, or any other concept that society has imposed upon you? If you remain speechless, then probably you can move one step further and discover your real nature.
You can then measure how well you're doing. You can identify the areas where you need to make changes if you want your life to improve. You must start with your ideal, your vision of a perfect future.
You begin unlocking your inner powers by lifting up your eyes and "seeing" your life exactly as if it were already perfect in every respect. Your first job is to create a blueprint, a clear picture of where you are going and what it will look like when you get there. This image will then serve as an organizing principle, a guide, a benchmark, against which you can measure and compare everything you do in the process of turning it into your reality.
It is the highest human good. Without it, nothing else has much value. Because of this, you strive for it all your life. You usually evaluate how well you are doing at any given time by how much inner peace you enjoy. Peace of mind is your internal gyroscope. When you are living in harmony with your highest values and your innermost convictions -- when you are perfectly balanced in life -- then you enjoy peace of mind. If, for any reason, you compromise your values, or go against your inner guidance, your peace of mind is the first thing to suffer.
Peace of mind, or harmony, is essential for the optimal performance of all human groupings, from your relationships with your Mends and family members to the businesses and organizations in which you work. All interactions among people thrive on harmonious relationships. All manners, morals, etiquette and diplomacy are organized around the desire each person has to assure his or her peace of mind by not disrupting the peace of mind of others.
In corporations, peace of mind can be measured in terms of the amount of harmony that exists among coworkers.
Productive, profitable companies are those in which people feel good about themselves. They feel safe and happy at work. They may be busy, even frantic with activity, but they are at peace inside. The wonderful truth about peace of mind is that it is your normal, natural condition. Happiness is your birthright. It belongs to you. It is not something you experience occasionally if you're lucky. Peace of mind is central to your very existence. It is the basic precondition for enjoying everything else.
Achieving inner peace must be a central organizing principle of your life. It must become the overarching goal to which all your other goals are subservient.
In fact, you are only successful as a person to the degree to which you can achieve your own happiness, your own contentment, your own sense of personal well-being -- in short, your own peace of mind. The very idea of specifically aiming at the achievement of my own happiness caused me a good deal of confusion and anxiety at one time. My religious background had drummed into me the idea that my own personal happiness was not a valid consideration for my choices and behaviors. If anything, I was told that happiness was merely a by-product of living my life to make others happy.
If I got any happiness, I was informed, I was just lucky. And if I didn't, then that was my lot in life. The very idea of setting happiness as a specific goal for myself was described as selfish and uncaring. A major turning point came for me when I learned two things. First, I learned that if I didn't commit to achieving my own happiness, no one else would. If my aim in life was only to make others happy, I would always be at the mercy of the feelings of others, whoever they might be.
And I found that trying to organize my life around making others happy was an unending exercise in frustration and disappointment, because it just wasn't possible. Second, I discovered that I couldn't give away what I didn't have.
I couldn't make someone else happy by being miserable myself. As Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can't help the poor by becoming one of them. Peace of mind is so important to everything else you accomplish that it must be subjected to rigorous analysis. Where does it come from? Under what conditions does it exist for you? How can you get more of it? In the simplest terms, you experience happiness and peace of mind whenever you are completely free from the destructive emotions of fear, anger, doubt, guilt, resentment and worry.
In the absence of negative emotions, you enjoy peace of mind naturally, effortlessly. The key to happiness then is to systematically eliminate, or at least minimize, the parts of your life that cause you negativity or stress of any kind.
This idea bowled me over when I first came across it many years ago.
The way to live a happy, productive life is to achieve your own peace of mind by systematically eliminating the negative people, situations and emotions that make you unhappy. Could happiness in life be that simple? And herein lies the rub. The major obstacle to eliminating the negativity that interferes with your happiness is your attachment to the negative people and situations that cause it.
Your rational mind comes up with all kinds of clever reasons why you must continue in your existing situation. Instead of working for you, instead of providing you with solutions to your problems, your amazing brain works frantically to keep you mired in them.
Later in this book, I'll show you a variety of ways to control, and eventually eliminate, your negative emotions. I'll show you powerful techniques you can use to neutralize anger and worry in moments. I'll show you how to take complete control of your emotions and how to keep them positive most of the time.
For the moment, though, your job is to engage in what is called "mountaintop thinking. What combination of ingredients would have to exist for you to be perfectly happy? Don't worry about what's possible or not possible for you at the moment. Free your mind from all limitations and be perfectly selfish.
Just define your life exactly as it would have to be for you to enjoy the peace of mind you desire.
What would you be doing? Where would you be living? Who would be there with you? How would you spend your time, day in and day out?
Remember, you can't hit a target you can't see. But if you can envision it clearly, there's a very good likelihood that you can achieve it! If you're in business, create this ideal future vision of what your job or work would look like if it was absolutely excellent in every respect.
What would you do more of or less of to achieve higher levels of harmony and cooperation in your work environment? In your family, what would your life look like if you and the people you care about were living in a state of complete peace and contentment? What sort of things would you do to help others to be happy in the process of achieving your own happiness?
When you set peace of mind as your goal and plan everything you do in terms of whether it helps or hinders your attainment of that goal, you'll probably never make another mistake.
You'll do and say the right things. You'll find yourself operating from a higher set of principles. You'll feel wonderful about yourself. Peace of mind is the key.
Just as peace of mind is your normal and natural mental state, health and energy is your normal and natural physical state. Your body has a natural bias toward health. It produces energy easily and in abundance in the absence of mental or physical interference.
And radiant health exists in the absence of any pain, illness or disease. Wonderfully enough, your body is constructed in such a way that if you just stop doing certain things to it, it often recovers and becomes healthy and energetic all by itself. If you achieve all kinds of things in the material world, but you lose your health or your peace of mind, you get little or no pleasure from your other accomplishments.
Imagine yourself enjoying perfect health. Think of how you would be if you were your ideal image of physical fitness. How would you look? How would you feel?
How much would you weigh? What sort of foods would you eat and what kind of exercises would you do? What would you be doing more of, and less of?
A businessman in one of my seminars came up to me after he had thought about this "ideal image" and told me that, if he was in perfect health, he would be able to run a marathon.
His problem was that he was forty years old, twenty pounds overweight, and not particularly fit. He doubted that it was possible for him, but the thought process had begun. The more he thought about himself as he could be, rather than as he was, the more excited he became about the very idea of training for a marathon.
He began to see himself as lean and fit.
He became more and more convinced that he could do it. He bought a couple of books on jogging and started running a little each day. He got the right clothes and the right running shoes. He increased his distance each week and soon began doing "fun tams" and mini-marathons.
Within one year, he ran his first marathon, He fulfilled his vision and became the person he had imagined he could be.
