More Mind Power in Minutes
A basic mindfulness exercise starts with sitting down, relaxing and breathing deeply through your nose. Close your eyes and be aware of your breath going in and out. After a minute, move your attention to your body, one part at a time, noting sensations of cold, hot, tight, and sore and anything else you identify. In a few minutes, start listening to sounds in the room, without thinking about them. Just listen. Continue reading

Each of us has the power to be creative. It’s part of our natural make-up as human beings. The trouble is that, too often, we block our natural creativity and so make errors in thinking and give ourselves more problems than we should. Here are 7 ways to open up your natural creativity and keep the channels unblocked.
- Don’t Make Assumptions. When we assume, we often make an “ass” out of “u” and “me”. Assumptions are examples of lazy thinking. We simply don’t wait to get all the information we need to come to the right conclusions. There is the story of the customer at the bank who after cashing a cheque and turning to leave, returns and says: “Excuse me, I think you made a mistake.” The cashier responds, “I’m sorry but there’s nothing I can do. You should have counted it. Once you walk away we are no longer responsible.” Whereupon the customer replies: “Well, okay. Thanks for the extra $20.”
Tip: When you feel yourself wanting to draw conclusions, just wait until you have all the information. Continue reading

We are where we are, because of our thoughts in the past. Thoughts become things. We consciously or subconsciously always think about something. The problem is that we usually think more about things we don’t want, than about the things we want. It doesn’t matter if we want or don’t want something, we’ll get what we mostly think about. Continue reading
Gratitude or appreciation of what we already have is necessary to attract things we want. Every day when you wake up try to be thankful. Think about the good things in your live you should be thankful for. Appreciate your job (even if you don’t like it).
Feel gratitude for a place to live. If you have some food, some friends or anything else you can find to appreciate, appreciate it. A lot of people don’t have enough even basic things like food, water and their own place to live. Continue reading

People interact with each other on a daily basis, and most times this is because one person needs something from the other. Getting others to do what you want them to do is simple, when you know how to do it. Continue reading
Personal Change in Self-Esteem Development
All human beings at one point in their life feel sad, alone and down in the dumps.
Because of the first sin, we all have to feel grief to make way for the feeling of happiness. Everyday all of us face challenges. It can be truly simple like the problem of your dog peeing in the couch, or may be serious like your brother facing a case for driving with the influence of alcohol. Whatever the case, problems still cause the feeling of sadness. Since there is no way you can get rid of life problems, I have put into words ways to make problems less of a burden.
You Are Not Alone
It will not help in anyway to be asking God questions such as “why does life have to be like this?” or “why do all people seem to be really happy while it seems that all problems have landed on my shoulder?” Questions like this will lead you to think that only you face problems. That, my friend, is not at all true. As I have said, each person in this world holds a problem of his own. Even kid’s face problems like how they could clean all the mess they have made or how they could convince their parent to buy them a pet. It is always nice to know that you are not the only person in the world with problems. Problems do not seem to follow only you. It goes the same with all persons. Thinking about people who face even bigger, more complicated problems will also help. It helps to think that, if compared to other people, you problems seem to shrink into an ant size one.
Optimism is the key
Problems must be analyzed effectively, rather than viewed as a headache waiting to happen. It will only make you feel as if there is nothing else it will offer you other than suffering, bad mood, and pains. Make personal transformations while looking at the brighter side of the problem. Think of the problem as an opportunity for you to grow. This way, they would not seem as if they are burdens but as blessings simply disguised as problems. It is a blessing in some ways. Take it as a challenge. Look forward to how it will help you in the future. Look at how much lessons it will be teaching you. Anticipate the day when you have finally reached the tip of the problem and finally have solved it. Keeping a positive mind will offer you support. It will be a stepping-stone into a better happier life with lighter problems, which are not actually problems but blessings.
Slow it down
Do not expect things do go as you planned it to because most of the time it would not. Do not think that problems can immediately be fixed because most of the time they cannot. It takes time. One needs to focus and stay determined to get ahead. Slow things down and take them gradually. Rushing things will only give you unsatisfying results and the feeling that you have worked for 5 days straight. Slowly look at the situation and try to fix it. Try to determine what went wrong and what needs to be changed or done. From there, work it out. Do what you think is right. If things do not go as you wish, deal with it. Do not back out, you have gone this far. Just remember that after all these, a feeling of happiness and satisfaction will reign in you.
