Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Change! If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting.
If you want to change your life for the better, start by consciously changing what you think and what you say.
There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage or belief.
Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty. A great poet has correctly stated this universal truth through these lines:
I bargained with Life for a penny
In the classic book of Napoleon Hill's, Think and Grow Rich. Mary Kay Ash, the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, attributed her success to the development of self-confidence and faith in herself, and in all the people in her vast organization.
Mary Kay preached and practiced that the first step in achieving success is to firmly believe that you are an excellent person who deserves success. In an article in Personal Excellence, she suggested some exercises to help create your image of excellence and begin to establish an atmosphere of success in your. Here are some of her suggestions:
Imagine Yourself Successful
Always picture yourself successful. Visualize the person you desire to become. Set aside time each day to be alone and undisturbed. Get comfortable and relax. Close your eyes and concentrate on your desires and goals. See yourself in this new environment, capable and self-confident.
Reflect On Your Past Successes
Every success, be it large or small, is proof that you are capable of achieving more successes. Celebrate each success. You can recall it when you begin to lose faith in yourself.
Set Definite Goals
Have a clear direction of where you want to go. Be aware when you begin to deviate from these goals and take immediate corrective action.
Respond Positively To Life
Develop a positive self-image. Your image, your reactions to life and your decisions are completely with your control.
Our only limitations are those we set up in our minds.
