Pasta Sauce Is Stronger than Steel

A few days ago I have prepared my own recipe of pasta sauce, and when I finished cooking it, removed it from the electric cooker and I put a lid on it, to keep it warm, because I had to go and bring my wife from the train station.

I went to change clothes, and then, just before leaving, I wanted to open the lid, but couldn’t, because the lid fit the pan so perfectly, not allowing the steam to escape, which prevented the lid from being opened.

Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The thoughts you think most often create your reality.

For every external effect there is an inner cause: Your thoughts. In other words, the conditions and circumstances of your life are as a result of your thoughts and beliefs. How can you utilize this law of nature? By being conscious of your thoughts, avoiding the negative and pursuing the positive, and also by using the laws of creative visualization, or using today’s term for this not new technique, the law of attraction.

Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the powers of the mind and the imagination to create what we want in our life. With the help of this technique we can shape our life, character and circumstances, and attract opportunities, people and the things we desire.

This technique is similar to daydreaming. In both of them we create imaginary mental scenarios of events and situations, just like a movie, but with the difference that with creative visualization we use certain rules and techniques that enable us to create these mental scenarios and events as reality in our life. Through this techniques your thoughts can create your reality.

The thoughts we most often think create the circumstances and events of our life. When you become familiar with the mental laws of success, and learn how to visualize what you really want, you will then be able to improve your life and create success. You become the conscious creator of your life.

Your Self Esteem

“Perfect self expression will never be labor; but of such absorbing interest that it will seem almost like play.”
– Florence Scovel Shinn

Self EsteemIn Succeeding Through Inner Strength, Dr. Nathaniel Branden says that people unconsciously lower their self-esteem through their goals.

They usually start by writing down some nebulous wish and may start working on it with the best of intentions. They may even know exactly what they want and work really hard in order to get it. However and more often than not, they quit and do so sometimes just as fast as they have written it down.

They feel that their goal is unachievable, abandon their efforts out of feeling belittled by such a lofty ambition, or quit due to the accumulation of stress and frustration they’ve acquired in the process. And the worst part is that they usually rationalize their decision by referring to the goal’s seeming unfeasibility or, worse yet, to their inability.

They say things, like, “I knew I couldn’t do it,” “it’s not for me,” “I’m just not cut out for it,” “I’m not worth it,” and so on. Seldom do they know that the problem has nothing to do with the goal in itself — or with themselves, for that matter. It’s in the “why,” not the “how.” It’s what they focused on to start with.

“Setting goals just isn’t enough,” Dr. Branden says. “Ask yourself: ‘What am I going to do next week in order to reach my goal? What about tomorrow? What about now?’ You must become consciously purposeful.”

The point is that you shouldn’t set a future goal and just leave it there. If you do that, I promise you that it will stay there. And the worst part is that it will, more often than not, take you away from your present moments.

Be mindful what’s important during every single moment of your life and not at some point in the future. In other words, make your priorities your goals and then make them a part of your life. Translate your priorities into activities. Make your goals your “conscious purposes,” as Dr. Branden says.

InspirationThere are days when we feel inspired, with plenty of ideas of what to do, how to improve our life, our business or our relationships.

What do you do when you don’t feel the pulse of inspiration throbbing within you?

The inspiration tips in this short guide might not work the same way for everyone, but you can try them.
