Today is the first day of your perfect life, a life that is yours to shape into something truly wonderful and lasting. The past does not determine your future and a change towards personal excellence can happen in the blink of an eye if you will make a firm commitment to raising your life to its highest level.

Think of the current limitations of your life. You have interpreted each one of these circumstances to be a roadblock or negative element in your life, when this is not the case. If you set limits on yourself, your spirit will slowly die and you will fulfill your negative prophecy. There are simply no limits for a person who accepts no limits.

Clouds will always be there but anyone who conditions her mind and body to the correct degree will rise above any cloud to live with lasting bliss in the blue sky of life. Dedicate yourself to such self enhancement each and every day of your life. A time will definitely come when your personal power takes you to a place where you have real freedom and joy. This is a place where all dreams come true. This is the place of self-mastery. This is a place called Mega Living!

10 Golden Rules for Mental Mastery:

1. What you think every second matters. Today’s thoughts will serve to build your dreams of tomorrow.

2. Your outer world reflects your inner world. Change the thoughts you put into your mind.

3. You alone are responsible for what you think.

4. Change does not take place in a day. Work hard on it.

5. One of the great keys to a better life is to change your self image, which depends on the mental pictures we constantly run through our minds.

6. Anything you faithfully and honestly believe you can achieve, you will achieve if you take persistent action in that direction. Repeat dreams.

7. What you think about and believe is what you attract into your life.

8. Your subconscious mind plays a great role in the outcome of your life.

9. Your mind has the capacity to hold only one thought in its focus at any one time. Ensure each thought is a valuable and positive one.

10. There is a success mechanism inside your mind which craves positive stimulation.

Visualize the perfect you and feel that you are that person. A wandering mind will do more to make you tired than a 10 mile run.

The first step to eliminating mental fatigue is to control every thought in your mind. Realize that fatigue is your own creation. Your discipline must take over.

Visualization, where one mentally rehearses the ideal performance in his mind over and over before the actual event, should be a tool in the success arsenal of every peak performer. How could you hit a target you cannot even see? One of the truest laws of Nature is that what you focus on constantly with great emotion and expectation will become a reality. Start off small. Small victories always lead to large ones.

There are many things that still remain mystical in this world and one of them is the principle of why, when goals are written down and kept at the center of your mind they come true, provided you take action to have the desired result..

Success formula to achieve your goals:

1. Clearly decide on your goal and picture its attainment in your mind every night just before you sleep. Picture yourself having achieved it.

2. Repeat your desire aloud ten times before you sleep.

3. Through repetition of thought, the goal will become a burning desire.

4. Develop a clear plan, seek opportunities for fruition.

5. Write the goal, plan action and date of achieving it. Repeat this aloud 10 times a day with belief in its purpose and with intense feeling.

All your dreams will be placed at the forefront of your consciousness and the forces of thought will make them come true. Everyday review your goals and consider how you will feel once you reach them. You will then constantly be motivating both your conscious and subconscious mind to fulfill your dreams.

Understand the tremendous power of vigorous exercise on a daily basis as a tool for self-mastery and life excellence. Make one of the best decisions of your life and make the commitment to an exercise routine today. Remember the spirit of Kaizen: if you are not moving forward, you are moving backward .Wake up each day to the wonders of physical mastery. It will add power and focus to your dreams.

When the breath wanders, the mind is unsteady, but when the breath is still, so is the mind still .Good breathing practices as well as good posture will unleash the vitality that lies inside you. Deep breathing can change the state of your mind and the state of your life. Green Fog breathing technique, wherein, you visualize the air as deep green fog entering your body through your nostrils, moving slowly through out your body, and is calming, relaxing every muscle, then exhale it along with any tensions that may have accumulated. This is the very best breathing conditioners for the mind, body and spirit. One of the easiest strategies for powerful physical and mental transformation is yoga.

Everything is created twice- first in your mind and then in the outside world. Thoughts combined with the emotion of faith and belief yield phenomenal results. Create a personal destiny. Thought is matter and thoughts influence matter. This is why belief in your desires and goals is so very powerful and can reshape your life. You hold the most incredible instrument of change and success ever created!

Your outer world reflects your inner world. The mind is a treasure house of power to bring you all the richness you seek. It will soon come as surely as the night follows the day.

When you soak your mind in thoughts of wealth, happiness and peace, you start to tap and harness the incredible power of the subconscious mind. Feed it the right nutrition in the form of affirmations and visualization. Relax your mind and create your own mantra. The Law of Attraction states that what you constantly and consistently focus on in your inner world is precisely what you will receive in your outer world. Whatever you believe as true in your mind’s eye will certainly manifest itself in your reality.

Exert your will power to do those things which you may not like to do. Do that which you fear and the fear vanishes into thin air, never to return.

We are here to give to others. The purpose of life is a life of purpose and a life of purpose is created through constant service to those around us. The quality of your life will be measured by the quality of your contribution. Do not let even one day slip by without practicing random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty. Success is a journey not a destination. Enjoy the journey as you pass through life. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – that is to have succeeded.

Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions. The quality of your life is the quality of your communication, the way you communicate with others and more importantly, the way you communicate with yourself. What you focus on is what you get.

Revitalize the habit of laughter; it will put far more living into your life. To enhance your concentration and power of focus, count your steps when you walk. A quiet clear mind will concentrate steadily on all important tasks. Silence is golden, as it is the space between the bars that holds the cage. Again, the spoken word is a powerful influencer of the mind. Mentally manipulate and condition towards the positive.

Act tough and you will be tough. Have courage and inspire others with your actions. But always be considerate. Be so strong that nothing interferes with your peace of mind.
