Encourage & Help Others To Be Positive !!

When someone's feeling low, you can help them restore their self-belief by keeping a firm, clear vision of their goodness and what makes them special. 

Increase their self value by letting your vision be drawn to the diamonds (their specialities), 
rather than any stones (their defects).

Take a gentle encouraging approach and never give up on anyone.

Giving Regular Cleansing To Your Mind !!

The mind is constantly processing thoughts and emotions. And that's why a regular mind cleanser is so important.

Today, free the mind from past hurts and worries that continue to live with you.

Make time to clear out cynical and critical thinking.

Influence & Inspire Others with Positive Talks !

In our relationships with others, it is good to want the best: "I hope you do very well, I  am sending you my positive energy and this is my way of encouraging you and giving you courage. However, if you don't achieve what I think you are capable of, I will not feel frustrated. I will not be dependent on you satisfying my expectations, but I will always want the best for you." 

If you have faith and confidence that something will happen, it is a prophecy that must come  true. The expectations we have of someone, whether negative or positive, do have an effect on the person we are relating to. 

Many investigations into this question confirm the influence that the expectations of educators have, both in the performance and in the behaviour of their students. Everything points to the conclusion that the teacher's expectations form one of the most influential factors in the academic performance of their students. If a teacher expects good results from their students, their performance will be much closer to their real capacity than if their teacher is expecting poor results.

Overcome & Control Your Weakness !!

The way to overcome your weakness is to feel that the weakness is not yours. 

Check what weakness within you is not enabling you to attain success in the way you want to. Also check how many times during the day you have felt caught up with that weakness. See yourself in your perfect form and let there be the thought in your mind that the weakness is not yours and you are the one who has developed it in yourself. This thought helps you to gain mastery over that weakness and gives you the control to overcome it.

Use Peace & Silence To Overcome Anger and Stay Positive !!

In its original form, anger was not anger, not a negative reaction; rather it was the energy of a positive response to people and situations, but the response gradually changed to reaction. When we return to our spiritual identity, we begin to rediscover that capacity to be still, stable or centered, and we are they able to respond positively even to negative situations, or people. With spiritual consciousness, the energy of this negative reaction is transformed into being able to accept, understand and deal wisely and peacefully with whoever, or whatever, is encountered. 

In order to extinguish (overcome) anger, one has to use peace and silence, to understand that peace is the original state of one's being; to remember that 'I am a peaceful being' means to emerge the consciousness of non-violence. 

Silence, that is learning to put a brake on the mind and tongue, helps us to think before speaking and, as a result, saves us from many confrontations with others.
