The Secret and the Law of Attraction

By Remez Sasson “The Secret”, and many other similar books or films are great for inspiration and for creating expectations. They also awaken the belief that one can change his/her life and achieve success, yet this is not enough. A beginner might create some minor success, but in order to make real changes and create … Continue Reading…

Self Improvement – What Do You Improve?

By Remez Sasson

The term self improvement is a bit misleading and is sometimes erroneously interrupted. What do you really improve? You don’t improve your “self” and you don’t improve your “spirit”. You learn to develop certain skills that can help you go through life. You learn to look at things from a different, broader viewpoint, and you learn to forego limiting thoughts and habits.

You don’t improve something that does not exist in you. You improve and develop some skills that are already in you, but are weak, in a dormant state, or negatively expressed.

Self improvement is actually not “Improving yourself”, so much as changing your point of view, changing the way you look at yourself and the world, and strengthening and developing certain skills.

Self improvement is about developing:
  • Stronger willpower.
  • Better self discipline.
  • Better concentration.
  • Some degree of emotional and mental detachment.
  • More patience.
  • More tolerance.
  • Getting rid of negative or weakening habits and developing new ones.
  • Learning to think more positively.
  • Learning to be more kind and loving.

This is a partial list of the aims of self improvement.

Concentration and Multitasking

Concentration and multitasking, can they go together? I have been asked whether practicing concentration might interfere with one’s multi-tasking ability, as being able to concentrate on one thing and filtering out other stuff seems to be the opposite of multi-tasking. The mind can always think on one subject or object at time. When we do … Continue Reading…

How to Get Rid of Anxieties and Experience Inner Peace

Getting Rid of Anxieties

People often ask me how to get rid of their anxieties and how to experience inner peace. Getting anxious and worried is deeply ingrained habit. Some people have this habit more pronounced, and others don’t express it too strongly. Anxiety is a mental/emotional habit. Anxieties are thoughts, tinged with negative feelings and expectations that take … Continue Reading…

Tips to Improve Concentration

How to improve your concentration and attention? Why it is important?

Paying attention to what you are doing is one of the most important keys to success. If you are not able to hold your attention on one thing for some time, how can you accomplish anything?

Successful people are able to focus their mind on their goals day and night, until they accomplish them, be it money, fame, power, self-improvement or meditation. How can you improve your ability to focus your mind on your goals, when there are so many things that distract your attention?

Napoleon Hill said the following words about attention:

“Controlled attention is the act of coordinating all the faculties of the mind and directing their combined power to a given end. It is an act, which can be achieved only by the strictest sort of self-discipline.”

“Learn to fix your attention on a given subject, at will, for whatever length of time you choose. You will have learned the secret to power and plenty! This is concentration.”

“Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want!”

This is good advice for any person, who wishes to learn how to improve concentration and attention.

The Success Industry

The success industry has turned into a huge machine, creating a growing number of books, videos, audios and workshops, all promising big and quick success, without any effort. All these products create a sense of euphoria, great expectations, and often, also frustration. The producers of many of these products make great promises, and tell you that all you need to succeed is just a little of your time. Sometimes all you have to do is just repeat a few affirmations or visualize a goal a few minutes a day, and you will soon enjoy great success and the fulfillment of your dreams.

Can this be true? Does everyone who reads the book, listens to the video or participates in the workshop become a great success? In spite of all these products and promises, how many really succeed? How many really successful people are, in relation to the entire population?

Don’t misunderstand me. I believe in the power of the mind. I have written articles and books on this subject, but I also believe in common sense and in being practical. Creative visualization and the law of attraction are useful tools that work when used correctly, and there are good and useful books and other products available. I am speaking here about the growing tendency of making great promises and the tendency to oversimplify things.

I am sure you have bought and read more than one book, audio or video about achieving success. How many have read the book, listened to the audio or watching the video they have bought, and more important, how many have followed and implemented the instructions? There is a great distance between experiencing a feeling of elation, which people often experience when they are first introduced to these subjects, to actually using the techniques, persevering and then gaining results.
