Praise- It Will Provide Much More than You Realize…

Praise is a very powerful process, not just for the person receiving it, but also for the giver. I found that I was able to be more productive when I praise other people, and get this, I don't even have to always praise them directly and vocally.

OK, I understand you are now curious. What am I talking about?

Here is a little story to highlight this point. I heard it and wanted to share it here.

When ever you are out and about, or even at home or work, it is always beneficial to praise those around you, but you can do it silently to yourself. If you really want to, you can certainly praise out loud, but for this exercise, we will be praising inwardly.


A person visited a restaurant and after a short while, asked the waiter if he would like to know how he can increase the amount of his tips. Naturally, the waiter was curious and decided to ask for more information. The restaurant guest insisted that the waiter must be prepared to keep detailed records over the coming weeks, and he agreed.


The instruction was then for the waiter to inwardly praise every customer he served and to note the amount of his tips. Over the course of the next few weeks, his tips had actually doubled, and this was from him just praising his clients. He said things like they looked good, they seemed happy and so on.

Now, applying this technique in your life, consider praising your clients, your employer, your shop assistant even, all people whom you interact with. You may well be very surprised at the results you get.

Forgiveness- A Shift in Perception

Forgiveness is one of those emotions that can move mountains and clear massive boulders from in front of us. However, we need to establish some ways that work to forgive others without having to actually say anything to them directly. Yes, I did say that.

Let me explain a bit here. When things happen to us, sometimes the person who has wronged us knows it, and in some cases, they may not even be aware they have wronged us. As it turns out, it does not really matter, because what actually happens is that we create a great deal of anger, potentially, in ourselves. At this point, we start to internally self destruct. The anger and frustration is lie a cancerous ball developing in us, and we need to understand this phenomenon, to thus control it. 

How often have you found that you have created a situation in your mind, much bigger than the original issue ever was? Be honest. This is not about me- it's about you solving your grievances and moving on, The only way to really move on is to be determined to be clear and effectively erase all the hurt, the anger and the annoyances in our lives.


I even know this is easy to say sometimes, but we need to take responsibility here. I call it living above the line, where instead of blaming anybody for anything, we concentrate on the way we react, or better still, respond. I know I have written on the issue of responding before, because it is so important. You need to make sure you are responding and also thinking.

Try this on for size:-

Take a seat, and actually allow yourself some quiet time, and take a blank piece of paper (or more?) and start writing all your grievances, with past, and present issues and people. Put it all on paper. Be honest here as no one else will see this paper. Just get it all out as it were, and write everything that has ever wronged you or you feel angry about. 

After wards, write something along the lines of "I openly forgive and let all this hurt go. I hold no further resentment to anything or anyone".

The above is a very powerful process. After all that, burn the paper and do something else. By doing this process every few months or even weeks if you feel like it, you will develop a habit of emptying all the negative emotions from your system. It can change your life in amazing ways. Just see for yourself after trying it out. 

I learnt this technique from both Catherine Ponder's books and also from the Laws of the universe.

Ongoing Faith Issues- Knowing We Are Capable and have the Inner Resources

I think this is a very important point to note, in that we really all do have the resources to be very successful, and tackle any challenge that falls our way. Please note I have deliberately mentioned the word 'Challenge", rather than problems. You could suggest this is pure pedantics and symantics, but I am working to point out that the way we think affects our outer ability to deal with the things that life throws our way.

It is often as simple as learning not to react, but rather to respond. I am certain I have written about this important issue before, and feel it is very important to understand the fact that we can train our thinking to deal better with situations that occur. No one has yet been able to think clearly when they are panicking, and thus, I encourage cool, calm, and collected thought- reflection if you prefer.


Now, whilst I understand this is easy to say, I try to quiet my mind at night, before I go to sleep and then, I start to think about any issues that I want to have answers to. This has proven to be a fantastic way to get to the bottom of some issues, provided I allowed myself to remain calm. It also takes practice to reach a point where I was getting better at it. You may be very good as soon as you start, or it may take a little longer. See how you go.


Effectively, another way to look at it is to Erase All Thoughts of Doubt!

Erase All Thoughts of Doubt


Concurrently with the above statements, you need to eliminate any doubt in your mind about your abilities. I understand you may not know how to achieve every step of a desired project or dream, but believing that you will find the way is critical to your success. Any trace of doubt can cause a massive rift to develop between your desire and reaching the goal. You really do need to know what you want, and have a burning desire of surety. This is intertwined with the faith issues we were talking about earlier.

I wish you to take the day to reflect on all you really want, deeply, and then prepare yourself for an awsome journey- You have what it takes and more.

Turning Problems Over to a Higher Power

I am not a particularly religious man, but I do have faith and am always working on developing it further. After all, accepting that the wonder of the universe is part of a higher power allows us to have perspective, and help us through tough times.

I believe in prayer and am sufficiently satisfied that it really does work, both from my own experiences as well as from the experiences of other people as well. I will summarize some points that I think are  relevant to help you in your day to day issues as well.

I think we all need to work on our faith, as it is the glue that can get us through some very difficult times. Let's face it, whilst life is very glorious, in spite of some difficult times, it is the getting through those times that I feel makes us stronger and educates us to handle new problems.

After all, when we solve problems, we are helping others and this is part of life and economic prosperity too. If you think about it, helping others is all about solving their problems which is why things are bought. There may be a need that is to be solved when a person buys a drill bit. They don't actually want a hole, but rather, maybe a fixing for a picture and so on.


I have included the above video because I feel the material from Catherine Ponder is fantastic, in helping you get through difficulty.

I have actually found that when I have a concern or a problem, by meditating on it for a short while, and then going to sleep, telling myself the answers will come and all will be worked out, I at that point, hand it over to a higher power'. I am not able to explain how this works exactly, other than to say that our mind is made up of an electronic brain, that is emitting radio frequency waves and is forming part of all the other waves in the universe. Others pick up on our problems, and are brought in to help, as it were. 

Think about this. When you have had a problem in the past, you may have seen that an unexpected source provided a solution, such as a chance meeting, and so on. Do you really think that all these meetings are really chance meetings?

This is just an introductory post on this. I will be writing more over the coming days.

In the meantime, feel free to browse the resources on the page and see for yourself how we can gain so much.


I have gained a great deal from the Laws Material on the universe

Establishing Order in Our Lives

I know this may seem a harsh topic for some of my readers, but order in life is very important. It has even been joked about, but I really do think that you can tell with some people, the state of their lives, based on the state of their cars. I am not talking about the model of car that someone drives, but often, if their car is very untidy and messy, I think that they are probably not very tidy people in their life affairs. I know this may upset some people, but I really do think that it is true.


My point is that for people to lead progressive lives where there is order, they will find that they are less stressed, and are spending less time looking for things as well as more time productively moving towards their goals. I am aware that some people may find this harsh, and I apologize to those of you. However, at least try it. Give it a real go. 

Set up all your paperwork in files that are labeled. Be disciplined about putting paper aways and so on. The more tidy and organised you are, the greater the order around you and in your affairs. It may even take a few days to get everything in order initially, but you will see an improvement in your affairs. I assure you.


It also helps to have a cl;ear mind, which will help with ideas flowing more freely as well.

We Can Receive Ideas Amid the Storm, By Saying No to Limitation

Limitation is against every fibre of my body. Why? As I know that there is more than enough abundance in the world for everybody. This is expressed in the value system by Club Asteria, as well as in the writings of authors like Catherine Ponder and Napoleon Hill, to name just a few.

My point is that even though we may be at times, sitting amidst a situation where we feel there may be lack, the requirement is to open our eyes and senses, and see the benefit and good. I am serious. Let me give you an example. Sometimes, we may log in to our bank accounts and see  a smaller amount than we want. However, there are still trillions of units of currency floating about us, in the electronic banking transactions around the world. We just have to decide to see what we can do to tap into them. Am I being ridiculous? I don't think so. We all have talents and ideas that can benefit many others. The inly issues are that sometimes, we have not expressed them, or put them into a material state for others to benefit from. Am I being serious? A hundred percent.

Let me use an example with me..

Once, I was employed in a traditional job which I enjoyed and received a regular fortnightly pay cheque, as well as over time..

Then, due to family circumstances, I needed to take a plunge and set up business for myself. This was done and I managed very well, even though I nearly died of fright in the beginning. Why?

Because it was scary getting into a self employed situation. That is the case. I needed to have more confidece in my own skills that I could provide a useful service for other people to benefit from.

Nowadays, I write articles daily, I create blog posts on different subjects, I consult and help people create websites through my Virtual Secretariat business, as well as creating content and commercial websites of my own. I do this daily, and am very happy. It has given me the freedom to travel,a s well as develop and help clients the world over, including Australia, France, and Imdia, to name a few.

So, when we decide that we want to do something, we need to be strong and take a stand that we are serious and are not going to allow ourselves to be limited. Limitation is really an elevation of lack. I refuse to allow lack,a dn encourage you to develop a similar mindset. By expecting positive results, you will get them.

I even encourage others in world economies that are traditionally not that great to improve their economies, through eduction and a desire to improve themselves and their economies.

When All Seems Impossible- Then What?

I know there are times when it all seems like everything is just too hard. Many of us have had days like that. However, I want to talk about the importance of centering and recognizing that we can actually meditate through the process of difficulty. I have written an article on the subject here, which goes into considerable detail. However, for the point of this entry post, I want to say that when it all seems to be getting too hard, it can be beneficial to quietly mediate. I know this may seem the last thing on some of your minds, but think about like this- Our subconscious mind often has the answers to many problems, and will present the answers, when we are able to quiet ourselves. When you first start, it may be quite difficult to do, but it does come with practice. In fact, it gets easier and more effective as time progresses.


It takes time and effort to master this skill, but as I have said in an article, it is about learning to respond instead of reacting to problems and concerns.

I have literally found that answers do come in time. It may not be instant, but with practice, it does become a more reliable response for difficult questions.


In addition, if you are so inclined, I have found and read that prayer is very effective too. I am not a religious person, per sé, but I do believe in a higher power, and there are enough studies to prove that prayer does work. The secret is to not only pray when you need help, but rather to develop an ongoing, and regular faith. It is like a habit, that is stronger after regular use, rather than an occasional sting now and again.

Vision for Your Future- Picture It and Expect It

Expect Your Vision To Come True, Or Better


In today's post, I am talking about the expectation of success, rather than just a meager desire for something good. After all, when we really expect something, we are more likely to work towards it.

Now, let's be honest here. It is about being dedicated and putting in a regular effort. I found that when I am focused, and working towards my goals, no matter how hard it may be from time to time, I am on fire. I am literally moving ahead and forward in leaps and bounds. You too can as well.


On the other hand, when you feel like there is no hope, and dare I say, get into a negative frame of mind,  everything becomes much harder to deal with. Hence, where to from here?

I know it is easy to say, but let me tell you, things were not always easy. However, when I realized that I had so much, I knew I could move forward. I will briefly tell you my story to put this in perspective.

When I started online, my results were absolutely terrible. However, I had the desire to succeed, and a sense and knowledge of sticking at it. I am a persistent individual and I knew I had to learn. Hence, I worked, failed, learned a few points and on this went.


I pictured exactly what I wanted and read a great deal as well, from authors like Catherine Ponder and Bob Proctor. You will even see references to Bob's products in the side references on thsi website. Being a part of the Six Minute Program has made a great deal of difference to me.

In fact, I always am learning, and am an active member in Club Asteria for personal growth the world over. Now, where I am going with this is that I am learning, practicing and testing all the time. It's not just about trying different things, but rather in being committed to making a difference. Hence, by surrounding myself with books, audios, videos and constant learning, I have made sure that I have also acted on the information. This is really important. Only with Action, can there be change. I know you may stumble initially, but you need to face the fear, and do it anyway.


Remember, the chances are that you are much better off than many others, considering you can probably read and write (or type) and already, that places you way ahead of the pack. You may well be amazed at the number of people who are unable to read, let alone write. You are really ahead of the pack. The fact that you have a desire, and are researching solutions, by you being at this website is a major step in the right direction for you already. The number of people who are unable to read, let alone write is substantial, and you are way above their level in the knowledge stakes.


Hence, you really do have a sporting chance at success and are able to move ahead quite considerably in the right direction.



Expectation is the Key To Success – Positive Outcomes

When we want something, or better still desire something, we need to expect that we will have it. Do we still need to work towards it? Certainly, yes, however, we need to also expect it in our hearts. In other words, we need to have positive outcomes in our minds that we will get what we want. It is about knowing in our hearts that we will have what we want.

To best illustrate this example, let us imagine a cat and a mouse. The cat has an ability to sit patiently for hours on end if necessary, because it know that it will get what it wants sooner or later. When a cat sees a mouse behind a piece of furniture, it knows the mouse will come out eventually. It is just a matter of time before re that happens, and for this reason, the cat will wait. There is no doubt or hesitation in the cat's mind. It may seem an odd example, but I feel it illustrates the point really well.

Now, applying this to your life, consider the things you want, the big things. Do you know for certain in your mind that you will definitely get what you want? I know this may be a tough question for some of you, but it is important to answer this one well, as it is a key to your overall success. When you have an unmovable desire, and belief, as well as expectation that your desire will manifest, you have already as well as created it.  The reason for this is that we need to create things in our minds first before we can have them materially. This is a fundamental law of the universe. I can assure you these methods work, as they have been proven time and time again.

What Are the Benefits of Taking Notes- Pondering and Planning?

I know this may seem a very obvious and basic statement. Planning helps us to see things in better perspective. It also helps to formulate ideas in our minds, and help the process of attraction.

Essentially, until we have actually written our goals and desires down, we have not fully committed to them in our deepest subconscious. I know this may sound almost upfront, but at least, give it a go. I can assure you these principles do actually work. They have been proven time and time again.

To best explain this, consider the following scenario-


You are thinking that you want to do something- you have an image in your mind of a project or a desire, and even though you know you have the right to it, you also have this very slight feeling that you are not certain you have what it takes to get it. Please please, get rid of this uncertainty. This is what kills dreams and effectively erases all the other good you may have created towards your initial desire. You see, even if you are not sure how you will get to where you want to be, you need to actually believe (make that Know) you will get what you want. I actually liken this to driving on a long journey at night. You know you will reach your destination, but the headlights only show up the immediate road ahead for a hundred metres or so, not the whole 800 kilometre journey!


In following on from this, you can then better prepare yourself for each phase, and recognise that as you go along, the unclear aspects will clear up for you. To use another example, when the first Boeing 747 was designed, the engine technology to lift it off the ground did not yet exist. However, the company management made the decision to actually go ahead, and start production of the aircraft. By the time they were ready, the engine design had become available.

Hence, for the above reasons I am a form advocate of writing down my goals, as well as displaying my desires in pictures. You can do what ever you feel most comfortable with. These concepts are also explained well in the Laws of the Universe program.
