Success and Speed Reading

speed reading

Something I have been working on recently is my speed reading courses.  These seem to not only help with reading but speeding up my brain where I would like to learn things.  One thing I prided myself on when I went back to school to get my bachelors degree was that I was able to understand everything with ease.  Even with working full time I flew through the classes.  Do not get me wrong, I was not perfect but at least I was not lost like the time before.

If we could just let our minds do exactly what these types of courses teach.  When you read quickly you are literally like a scanner.  Although I haven’t gotten to that speed I have met people that could literally flow down the page and turn to the next one without stopping.  My goal right now is to catch up to my wife.  She is a fast reader and stomps me when it comes to reading.

One exercise that I practice daily is to just let my thoughts flow.  This allows my brain to act on its own.  By allowing this time, normally just a short period before interruption, I find that I have a clearer path to what I must do throughout the day.  Although my day doesn’t always go as planned at least my brain is ready to accept the changes.  By accepting these changing I adapt much easier when I have to completely put what I wanted on hold to take care of business one way or another.  I believe this is a learned skill and anyone can do it.

I could just imagine the power that our brains hold.  If we could stop being distracted I believe that our brains’ would tell us exactly what we needed to accomplish and when.  There is no doubt that we would be a far more intelligent race of beings.  This is why I love entrepreneurship.  It allows us to free ourselves of societal needs; mainly money is the end goal, so that we can choose to do what we really want to do.  Following our passion and being happier to the people around us is what I believe it is all about.  What would you do with complete freedom?  How much happier would you be if you could live up to your brains standard?  There is not a doubt in the world that this kind of action would lead all humans to a much more lively life than trying to catch up to the brain, then resting a lot with TV or internet or any other source of mundane entertainment.

Thanks for reading and I hope this opens your eyes and your brains a little more.

Brain vs Success


Recently I have read a number of articles and heard a few talks about how the brain can even change our physical being.  This means that certain genetics can be manipulated through thought processes.  If our brain is this powerful could it help a person become successful?  I believe this to be so.

Think first about self defeating thoughts.  Peoples physical being tends to be affected as well.  If a person is depressed, they slouch and have a sad face on a lot of the time.  I know because I was diagnosed with it a number of years ago.  When I hold myself up, when I smile more, when I tell myself that success is always around the corner, this makes me feel better about life in general which also decreases the depression symptoms.  By changing certain physical aspects I am tricking my brain almost, although even better giving my brain whatever it needed to come back to reality.

The brain and physical connections are amazing.  When people are happier their diseases take longer to spread sometimes up to and even healing certain diseases.  The question then comes how can we use this to our advantage or how can we shift our mindsets to evolve to make whatever we want to come true in our lives?

I think part of it is going to be belief.  A person would have to truly believe that this can work.  This goes with anything that you look at.  In religion a person must go on faith and truly believe whatever they believe.  Are they then creating this alternate world where the religion is actually true and exists?  If enough people believe is there something that occurs in the universe that makes it come true?

The placebo affect has been shown to work in a lot of cases in the medical field.  The placebo affect is simply using a medication that should have no affect on the human body but the person taking this medication believes it is supposed to help them.  Because the person believed it was medication to help they got better from whatever was ailing them.  This is exactly what this article is about.  Believe in something so fully and so true that you can make it come true.

The other part of this, and this is where a lot of people become defensive, is the law of attraction.  The law of attraction is what The Secret and other great works are based on.  By using the law of attraction a person can make a parking spot appear, become successful at whatever it is you want or need or even become wealthy.  It doesn’t really matter what the cause is for we as humans should be able to manipulate our body and minds to do almost anything.

I hope you enjoyed this article.  I wish you best in your successes.

Tips For Success

Tips for success

There are many books and websites out there that offer advice on how to be successful.  Each of the tips for success is valuable.  In this article I am going to write a couple of tips that will help you be successful in everyday life.

1 – Vision – What is it that you are trying to be successful in?  A clear vision will help you to achieve.  I have heard that the clearer that you can see a dream the more likely it is to come true.  If this is true we should be envisioning what we want out of life every day.  Being happy and being a good father are two things that I strive to be.  To help me along the way I literally sit for a few minutes and think about what it takes to be a good father.  To me a good father will be there for his kids.  He will help to teach them what they will need in life.  This can be educational or more down to Earth.  Every single day I hope to teach my kids something new that they didn’t know or teach them how to think differently about something that is going on in their lives.

2 – It has already happened – If something has already happened you are now experienced in that field or subject matter.  This means that if we can place ourselves like something has already happened, we will more likely already know what to do.  If we know what to do it becomes simpler with time.  To me, I believe that people can use their vision to trick our minds into something that we want in life, making us believe we have already accomplished this.  I find that things just start to fall into place in the right order after I have done this correctly.

Think about it.  This happens every day even when we are not paying attention.  It can be in the positive or the negative.  As an example let’s say there is an emergency.  You have to get to the hospital as quickly as possible because a loved one is there with an injury of some kind.  We do not think about it.  We jump in the car and drive.  Sometimes speeding and going in and out of traffic.  We make it to the hospital in our minds before we ever step foot or find a parking spot there.  We tend to make it there safely even in the face of fear.  You have now used vision and you have already tricked your mind to know you were going to make it safely.  We do not always know how things are going to work out but now we have a clearer understanding of why this happens.

Now let us try an example that we can use in everyday life.  Let’s work on a relationship.  This can be with a wife, child, mother, father or any other person that may be important in your life.  First use vision.  See yourself having a better relationship with that person.  Now the tricky part, know that you have already accomplished having a better relationship.  Think about it day and night preferably 3 or 4 times a day.  By doing this you will start doing nice things for the person or talking more respectfully.  If it is a loved one like a wife or husband you may catch yourself buying them a coffee, visiting them at work or trying to have more meaningful conversations.  Remember that relationships with anyone are based on communication.  Communication can be verbal or nonverbal.

This has gone on longer than I like because I know and respect that the people reading this have limited time.  I will try to continue something along these lines to give you more tips for success in a later article.  Hope you guys and gals have a fantastic day.

Lesson 5 – Power of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is a known concept that very successful people use.  Some people I have talked to consider this a cult type belief system.  I am not apt to believe that this has anything to do with cultish desire.  This seems to be something that people use to attract whatever it is the person wishes to him or her.

Initially the power to attract what it is you want out of life comes down to simply convincing yourself that you will have that want or need.  One important concept about making goals in the life you want is to see yourself accomplishing that goal.  This helps to give a certain desire, a certain drive if you will, to get to that point in your life.

I do not find anything wrong with imagination.  Look at the placebo effect in the medical field.  This is when although someone takes something like a sugar pill and they magically feel better.  There have been certain experiments performed that use the placebo effect and even medical tests and equipment cannot find remnants of whatever disease there was that the patient was trying to get rid of.

On a CD I was listening to a guest speaker named Dr. Deepak Chopra.  He was describing an effect that humans can have upon their own bodies.  This is stating a belief and having an instantaneous reaction.  Although it was a little beyond me I understood the basic concept.  It was a matter of tricking the mind to heal the body.  This is a very important concept.  The brain is a very powerful tool.

How can we use that tool to attract the things we desire?  Well, we already know that we use a very small percentage of our brains.  If we could just unlock certain doors within that powerful utility we would be able to accomplish amazing things.  The true power of a human is still yet to be seen.

This is what always fascinates me about us.  Movies like X-men or Gattica have intriguing theories.  Then there are theories of advanced humans already out there.  There is also the show by Stan Lee who represented these people.  Now you may be asking yourself, “Well I am not a superhuman.  What can I take from this?”

If I want my readers to take anything from this it is having the knowledge that they are capable of more than they think.  Again, I am a man of action.  This is what I want you do for the exercise in this lesson.  First, the good news, you get to use your imagination.  Imagine something small that you want or need for practice.  Do not automatically say I want a million dollars.  I think it is possible but I would rather start you off easy.

Imagine this simple object.  Feel it, see it, play with it or imagine exactly what you are doing with the object of your desire.  The next step is to do this a few times a day.  I would say at least three times a day.  Do this day in and day out until somehow you find a way to obtain the item or the item appears before you.  As you convince yourself that you already have the object it ceases to be a desire and becomes real.  This is the effect I wish for you to achieve.

A great video that you can watch if you choose is the following.  It is around an hour and a half but well worth your time if you want to hear some cool things people have attracted to themselves and who in history has used this.
