You must form a clear and exact mental picture of what you want.
You cannot transmit an idea unless you have it yourself.
Many people ...... have only a vague concept of what they want to have, want to do or want to become. It is not enough to have a general desire of what you want to do good work.
You must know what you want and be definite.

57:05
You need to know what you want and to want it badly enough it will stay in your thoughts.
In your leisure time concentrate on your picture.

Remember that the tone of your voice often conveys more accurately what is in your mind than do your words.

In a moment of conflict, a suggestion or compromise can salvage a threatened working relationship. A discouraged employee can be motivated again through a few carefully chosen words. In situations like these, a good manager is looking beyond an immediate situation and acting to preserve a future benefit. But if your voice betrays your own anger, fear, or despair, that emotion, not the wisdom you offer, will be what others remember. Those who rise to the top in any organization are those who have learned to control their emotions. When you have a leadership position, others will watch you closely for the signals you send. You must learn to manage yourself and all the ways in which you convey messages to others if you want to inspire them and demonstrate that you care about all the members of your team.

If you have something you don’t need, give it to someone who needs it.

You know by now how important it is to offer service freely to your community without expecting anything specific in return. You know as well how important the intangible personal benefits of self-respect and inspiration that accompany such action are. But it is also true that by rendering a public service you have an effect on the values in your community. Your actions are a quiet but steadfast signal to others of the importance of being involved, a sign that success does not require heartless devotion to a cause and a reminder to others of the personal satisfaction you gain from your labor. You will find that you inspire others to similar actions in different areas, creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond what you alone can do. The community in which you live will become a better place, and you will be happier being a part of it.

Character is an important element of success and a critical attribute of leadership, but character alone cannot ensure success unless it is channeled in a positive direction. When good, decent people — persons of character — connect with a major purpose for their lives toward which they willingly and enthusiastically direct their energies, the results can be awe-inspiring. A major purpose and outstanding character are a formidable combination.

The “loneliness at the top” that senior officials often feel comes from the certain knowledge that they alone are responsible for the failure or success of the organization. They may share their authority with associates, but not their responsibility.

That is one of the tricks of opportunity. It has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to recognize opportunity.

Thoughts

Truly, “thoughts are things,” and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for their translation into riches, or other material objects.

[a dramatic example of thoughts are things]


Alexandra David-Néel, born Louise Eugénie Alexandrine Marie David (24 October 1868 – 8 September 1969), was a Belgian–French explorer, spiritualist, Buddhist, anarchist and writer.[a][b][c] She is most known for her 1924 visit to Lhasa, Tibet when it was forbidden to foreigners. David-Néel wrote over 30 books about Eastern religion, philosophy, and her travels, including Magic and Mystery in Tibet which was published in 1929.



"She joined various secret societies – she would reach the thirtieth degree in the mixed Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

In her anchorite cave, she exercised the methods of Tibetan yogis. She was sometimes in tsam, that is to retreat for several days without seeing anyone, and she learned the technique of tummo, which mobilized her internal energy to produce heat. As a result of this apprenticeship, her master, the Gomchen of Lachen, gave her the religious name of Yshe Tome, "Lamp of Sagesse", which proved valuable to her because she was then known by Buddhist authorities everywhere she went in Asia.[21]


The account of her adventure would become the subject of a book, My Journey to Lhasa, which was published in Paris, London and New York in 1927,[43] but met with disbelief of critics who had a hard time accepting the stories about such practices as levitation and tummo (the increase of body temperature to withstand cold).[44]



-------
When Alexandra David-Neel journeyed through Tibet, one of the many mystical techniques she studied was that of tulpa creation. A tulpa, according to traditional Tibetan doctrines, is an entity created by an act of imagination, rather like the fictional characters of a novelist, except that tulpas are not written down. David-Neel became so interested in the concept that she decided to try to create one.

The method involved was essentially intense concentration and visualization. David-Neel's tulpa began its existence as a plump, benign little monk, similar to Friar Tuck. It was at first entirely subjective, but gradually, with practice, she was able to visualize the tulpa out there, like an imaginary ghost flitting about the real world.

In time the vision grew in clarity and substance until it was indistinguishable from physical reality-a sort of self-induced hallucination. But the day came when the hallucination slipped from her conscious control. She discovered that the monk would appear from time to time when she had not willed it. Furthermore her friendly little figure was slimming down and taking on a distinctly sinister aspect.

Eventually her companions, who where unaware of the mental disciplines she was practicing, began to ask about the "stranger" who had turned up in their camp-a clear indication that a creature which was no more that solidified imagination had definite objective reality.

At this point, David-Neel decided things had gone too far and applied different lamaist techniques to reabsorb the creature into her own mind. The tulpa proved very unwillling to face destruction in this way so that the process took several weeks and left its creator exhausted.

Drifting, without aim or purpose, is the first cause of failure.

Without a plan for your life, it is easier to follow the course of least resistance, to go with the flow, to drift with the current with no particular destination in mind. Having a definite plan for your life greatly simplifies the process of making hundreds of daily decisions that affect your ultimate success. When you know where you want to go, you can quickly decide if your actions are moving you toward your goal or away from it. Without definite, precise goals and a plan for their achievement, each decision must be considered in a vacuum. Definiteness of purpose provides context and allows you to relate specific actions to your overall plan.

"You don't get rich by doing certain things, you get rich by doing things in a certain way."
Wallace Wattle - The science of getting rich

You can have two people doing the same thing and one is getting rich and the other isn't.
One is doing the thing in a certain way.
It has to do with intent
It has to do with the energy you are doing it with

Short book, and the main point of it is that everyone has a "Personal Legend" to follow. Basically, the world conspires to help you to achieve your goals. Motivational book, told as a fable. Short read, but worth the time.

Have you noticed that the most effective worker is generally the busiest?

Successful people are busy people. They ... constantly search for new challenges and better ways to do things. When others discover that you are a thoughtful, helpful, enthusiastic worker, you will soon have more business than you can manage, and you will greatly increase the number of people who have a stake in your success. When you find faster and better ways to do your job, [you free up time to engage in more activities]

A friend is one who knows all about you and still respects you.

A true friend is a priceless gift. When we reveal our hopes, our dreams, and our deepest secrets to others, and they still like and respect us, such people are to be cherished.

The Hidden Secrets to Manifesting Prosperity
https://www.youtube.com/embed/510yd7tEXZs

What do you subconsciously believe it?
Your greatest obstacles to prosperity are your thoughts, your beliefs and most importantly your expectations.
What do you expect financially?
Do you have clear-cut goals?
You need to know exactly what you want and you MUST BE dedicated to sticking with it until it comes to pass.

(Thanks Snakehead.)

Make up your mind you are going to get in the success zone.
If 95% of the population are poor, if 1% are earning 95% of all the money, you're not going to get a whole lot of people agreeing with what you are doing.

You can tell by the company people choose what sort of character they have

As the saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together.” We usually choose friends and business associates who like the same things we do, people who share the same values. If you choose happy, positive, productive companions, the odds are that you are or will soon become happy, positive, and productive yourself. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. Unhappy, negative, destructive people are sure to drag you down with them. Choose to spend most of your time with persons who have PMA — a Positive Mental Attitude. If your job requires you to spend time with negative people, limit that time to the best of your ability and above all don’t let them discourage you with their negativism. Instead, display your own PMA.

What is preventing most people from earning the amount of money they want to earn?
If you really pay attention and you are prepared to go to the edge and let go, step out, I guarantee you your life will change.

---
Money problems are not outside they are inside.
They are paradigms and they rob us of the life we deserve.
Most people say they understand paradigms but their income and lifestyle state otherwise.
If a person undestood what is causing them to have the same problem over and over again, unless they were complete idiots, they would change it.
You see we are not idiots, but we still have the same problem over and over. Why? We don't know why.

There is an inner thermostate controling things. We call it a paradigm.

Attend well to your character, and your reputation will look out for itself.

Most of us at one time or another have been misunderstood by those who are important to us. They thought we planned to take an action they disliked when in truth our intentions were to proceed in an entirely different direction. Such misunderstandings are usually quickly righted and life goes on. The same is true with character and reputation. If your reputation is for some reason misaligned with your character, it will soon quickly right itself when others discover for themselves that you are not at all the kind of person they had assumed you were. If your foundation is strong, you never need to be concerned about such misunderstandings. Others will learn soon enough what kind of person you really are. Spend ... time and energy in .... self-inspection and self-improvement, building strong character, and you will never have to worry about what others think of you.

abundance meditation
"You are doing what you really want to do.
You're building bigger you're building better.
You have an enormous desire to add increase in everyone's life.
You want to leave everyone with the impression of increase.
You want everyone to feel better because they have come in contact with you."

Yesterday I wrote in my notebook:
"The key problem is to live in tomorrow, today.
(and not in Yesterday, today"
As we monitor our thoughts, we notice how often during the day we are re-playing (in words) memories of the past.
The monkey chatter of our minds has us re-living past garbage. It can be trivial memories or hurtful/sad/emotionally painful ones. It doesn't matter it is grinding us down into the past and pushing away the future we wish to create.

So we want to spend time in our future life now in our mind -easier said than done.

At least if our minds were empty they wouldn't be re-creating the past.
But our minds abhor a vacuum and the monkey chatter slides in.

I have been working with this for times went visualization is difficult and I want to keep my mind positive.

I have a short phrase (let x represent a number of your choice!)

"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"I have $x million dollars!"
"Isn't it wonderful!!!"


So as i'm walking i repeat "I have $x million dollars!" and use extend a finger to count, thumb left hand, index finger, ... and then the right hand bringing me to 10 reps or one set.
then
"Isn't it wonderful!!!"
"one"

To close the set 1 (= the set count) ie after the second set say "two"
I continue on, set after set. 30 min walk might be 150 sets.

Punch = emphasize the number you have for x, ie the number of millions.
then when you get to
"Isn't it wonderful!!!"
really punch it and let your face light up with joy, extend all your fingers as if your open hands are catching the millions from the sky.)

Those who think they can get by in life without providing the same amount of value for value received will eventually find themselves working harder than ever to deceive others and receiving very little in return. Life has a funny way of evening the score. In the long run, you will get in the same measure you give. Spend your time on productive, positive efforts; give generously of your time and talents, and you will stand out from the great multitudes whose primary goal in life is to get something for nothing.

If you don’t know why you failed, you are no wiser than when you began.

Unless we learn from our mistakes, we are likely to repeat them until we learn from such experiences and correct our course — or give up and accept temporary defeat as permanent failure.

Every setback you encounter in life contains valuable information that, if you study it carefully, will eventually lead you to success. Without adversity, you would never develop wisdom, and without wisdom, success would be short-lived.

When you make a mistake, say, “That’s good! I’ve gotten that out of the way.” You will no doubt make other mistakes, but they won’t bother you nearly as much when you treat them as learning experiences.

Initiative is that exceedingly rare quality that prompts — no, impels — a person to do what ought to be done without being told. It’s also a commodity upon which the world places great value. Initiative will immediately set you apart from the competition, whether you are an entrepreneur, a professional services provider, a corporate staffer, or an hourly worker. Your boss, your clients, or your customers will notice you and come to depend upon you because you have shown yourself to be a person who can be counted upon always to do the right thing.

Dependability is the first foundation stone of good character.

People of character do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it, and according to agreed-upon conditions. They are the leaders, the individuals to whom others turn for guidance, because they have demonstrated that they care, that they can be trusted. If you respect yourself enough to keep commitments even when it’s inconvenient to do so, others will come to respect you too.

Dependability, like any other character trait, is a habit. Begin today to develop the dependability habit.

The mind grows only stronger when it is active. The more you exercise and stretch your brain, the more proficient it becomes.

The greatest minds will rust away unless they are used.

Unless you manage your schedule to permit time for study and learning, it is easy to yield to the temptation to spend your free time in thoughtless, mind-numbing, escapist pastimes.

"I kept reading the goal card. I did exactly what the author said. I kept reading it and reading it. Because I kept reading it I started to think of earning money. Whatever you think about you attract. You literally magnetize yourself to it"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wstqJUmlbyc

I thought - As I close my eyes and think the words of my goal card "I now have in my possession x million dollars." to see money streaming towards me as a magnet pulls iron filings and the money streaming to me and the bills piling up around my feet.

If you must let someone down, be sure it isn’t the friend who helped you up when you were down.

We all have short memories. We become preoccupied with our own interests and daily cares, and it’s easy to lose track of friends. There will always be times when you must choose between what you wish to do and what you must do. When you are faced with such decisions, make sure you always remember those true and loyal friends who were there when you needed them, and never, under any circumstances, abandon them. When you let down a friend who helped you when you needed it most, you will not only adversely affect the friendship; you will seriously damage your own self-respect. When you fail a friend, regardless of how heavy your own burdens may be, you also fail yourself.

If everything we attempted in life were achieved with a minimum of effort and came out exactly as planned, how little we would learn — and how boring life would be! And how arrogant we would become if we succeeded at everything we attempted. Failure allows us to develop the essential quality of humility. It is not easy — when you are the person experiencing failure — to accept it philosophically, serene in the knowledge that this is one of life’s great learning experiences. But it is. Nature’s ways are not always easily understood, but they are repetitive and therefore predictable. You can be absolutely certain that when you feel you are being most tested, you are being prepared for great achievement.

The end of the rainbow is reached only at the end of the second mile.

Christ’s admonition to the faithful in Matthew 5:41: “And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain,” was in response to the Roman custom of allowing officers to force others to carry their load for a mile. The purpose of the biblical principle, similar to the idea of turning the other cheek, was to make good come from evil. You can add goodness to goodness by rendering beyond what you are asked to do.

In today’s interdependent society, it is virtually impossible in any business, profession, or occupation for an individual to achieve great heights of success without the help of others. The best way to get friendly cooperation is to give it. When you make it a practice to encourage others and to help them advance in their careers whenever possible, most will reciprocate when you need their help. Give generously, and you will benefit in kind.

Money has no character, no personality, no values. Its actions only reflect the desires of its owner. Money can build great hospitals and schools, or it can be gambled away or squandered on meaningless possessions. Money may build museums to house beautiful works of art, it may construct beautiful houses of worship — or it may be used to create instruments of war and destruction. As you build your personal wealth, make sure you build your character by setting aside a portion of your income to help others. Choose a church, a charity, or a cause that you can enthusiastically support. Then give of your money and your time in support of that cause. The primary beneficiary of such noble actions is always the one who gives, not the one who receives.

Don’t be fooled by people who attempt to further their own interests under the guise of helping you. Listen to advice from others, thank them for their interest, and make up your own mind about what is best. Follow their advice if it fits with your plan for your life, but don’t hesitate to discard it if it doesn’t. In all the world, there is only one individual who knows what is best for you, and that person is you.

Don’t leave something as important as your character to chance. Choose the character traits you admire, and work to develop them. Don’t be discouraged when you stumble. Building character is a process that takes a lifetime to complete. Fortunately, like anything else, the more you work at character building, the better you become at it.

We human beings are a complex lot.

Many religious writings and great literary works are based upon the constant struggle between good and evil that goes on inside every one of us. This struggle is as old as mankind itself. Yet, while we recognize our own inner struggles, we are often quick to condemn others.

Make it a point to look for the good in yourself — and in others.

Nurture the good character traits and work on the ones that may need improvement. Like plants in a garden, the character traits that grow strong and productive will be those that are fed, watered, and weeded regularly.

10:22 AM 9/1/2017
Friday

Recently I have been thinking about my friends and the 2 year wall.

My orientation to life is positive.
"The great secret to life is that if you think positively you will get positive results, and if you think negatively you will get negative results." NV Peale via "The Strangest Secret" - Earl Nightingale recording (see visualization thread).

So to me the question is not:
"Is life positive or negative"?
but rather, since I want my life to be positive, happy productive and add to the well-being of all -
"How can I maintain a positive cheerful optimistic outlook in the face of a world that is often cynical negative and limitation bound?"

Therefore is it not - what is reality? But rather how can I fashion a positive creatively joyful reality. So my stance is not to be reactive to outside stimuli but rather procreative and generate internal stimuli that in line with my desire to create the life/reality I choose. The entire matter is to bring the power of creation back to ourselves.

The external world, and especially the MSM has a vested interest in drawing our attention to the negative, the fearful and the ugly. It is how they sell their newspapers, internet channels and TV. Like the mafia they profit from fear and terrorizing and intimating. It is what they are. It is not evil until I let it in, until I accept their selective external stimuli as the creative source for my thinking, react to it and let it shape my thoughts and vibrations.

"When you react to someone, you are letting them control you." - B Proctor, The Science of Getting Rich.

(Though of course the vast majority give MSM ear (under the guise of "keeping informed") it is evil -very very evil.)

So back to the central thought
"How to create a mind that creates success and positivity?"

1. Create a goal (a specific goal)
2. Create a vision of that goal
3. Write out a plan of how to bring that goal from thought-form into concrete form.

"...reduce your plan to writing if you have not already done so. The moment you have done this, you will have DEFINITELY given concrete form to the intangible DESIRE." Napoleon Hill "Think and Grow Rich" p129 - cp 1947.

When you are feeling depressed, bring into your mind the joyful positive future self you are in the process of manifesting. Abandon all feelings of depression and feel the joy your new reality will be, in the now, in the present. Bring the future to the present.

Get a piece of paper write the amount you want to earn at the top and figure out how you are going to do it.
Don't spend anytime thinking of why you can't just think of why you can.

To achieve great things in life we must have great focus.


Those who have achieve great things, focused steadfastly on the important tasks and kept at them until their goal was achieved.

When considering a new activity ask:
Is this activity aligned to my main central purpose?

In any organized endeavor, obstacles are going to occur. Sometimes they appear in the form of technical problems; sometimes they are disputes between members of the team over which course is best to follow. If you have set an example of initiative and open communication, you will find that your team has the mental and spiritual resources to overcome these kinds of struggles. A group of people who trust their leader and one another don’t waste energy jockeying for prestige. They know that they will all benefit from a solution, and they are motivated to find it by sharing the knowledge and ideas. From these many parts a skilled leader can create the necessary solution, but only if a spirit of friendliness and honesty prevails.

The Power of Faith and Expectation (John Canary)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwhYSdDmtlg

Until you can see it on the screen of your mind, until you can see yourself in possession of your desire on the screen of your mind you and ACT on it will never experience your desired goal.

How many people EXPECT what they desire?
We should never desire something we don't expect (nor expect something we don't desire).

If you have something which you desire, which you do, you are in harmony with it right now, But it your expectation that moves it into your life.

You will always gravitate towards that which you most secretly love.

Before anyone of us can begin to overcome the poverty that surrounds us in our external world we must conquer the impoverishment that is buried deep within ourselves.

You cannot have wealth in your material world until you first visualize the wealth in your mind

There is no limit to the power. What you believe you can do, you can do.
Al believed there was a $500,000 idea locked up in him. Al was always capable of earning the $500,000. You are capable of doing what you want. You believe and you can do it.

-----my notes --- []

[You need to see the success, you need to feel it, you need to expect it. Once you do, you have created it. Then as you go about your daily actions it springs forth. You see yourself entering the trade correctly, you see the screen go blue and the profit increase to your target you feel the satisfaction of actualizing what you have worked for. You feel the power and joy of being in charge of your creative process. You know you can do it again and again and again better each time. You realize that know that you know how to create and have done it there is no limit to what you can bring forth. You now say: "I am making reality to my design and it is as beautiful and wonderful just as I have seen it,"]

-----------------------
Conclusion:

We must expect our heart's desire to come forth to bring it forth

Your mind is the only thing you control exclusively. Don’t give it away too freely through useless arguments.

You may spend your time and your energy — both physical and mental — in pursuits that yield the greatest return on your investment, or you may fritter it away on activities that will never bear fruit. Since your mind is entirely your own domain, you may choose to use it to constructive ends, or you can waste mind power and time on useless arguments that go nowhere. There is a vast difference between a spirited intellectual debate and a petty argument. When you discuss concepts, your own knowledge is expanded through the interaction with another thinking person. When you allow yourself to be dragged into arguments about insignificant things, the result will be a dulling of both the mind and the spirit.

Remember, your mental limitations are of your own making.

For years, athletes attempted to run a mile in four minutes but it seemed to be a barrier that no one could overcome. Then on May 6, 1954, a British runner named Roger Gilbert Bannister ran a mile in 3:59.4 minutes to establish a world record. Soon afterward, other runners broke Bannister’s record. Too often, we accept conventional wisdom as fact. Make sure you set your goals high enough. Don’t settle for less because of limitations you place upon yourself. Most of us never really reach the level of achievement of which we are capable because we don’t challenge ourselves to do so.

Perhaps Robert Browning said it best:

“A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, / Or what’s a heaven for?”

Mark Twain once observed that “the difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” It is never appropriate to use profanity, especially among people you do not know well. Instead, build your vocabulary by reading and studying so that you can express yourself simply and eloquently. When you expand the number of words you know, you also expand your mind, because understanding the words and their meanings necessitates understanding the concepts behind them. Make sure you allow time each day for study and reflection.

The problem itself has different levels of existing in your conscious mind.
1. The simplest form of existence of the behavioral pattern or problem is behavior itself! This is like being a 'newbie', than you do not know which behavior is correct, what is wrong, what is right to do in the market. You may experience those behavioral patterns, ok. But, once you know the proper behavior in the market, you become free of those behavioral patterns, you can start to behave yourself in the correct way. We can solve problems that lies only on the behavioral patterns level just by changing our behavior.
2. However, behavioral patterns are may be the consequences of what you have underneath those behavioral patterns. Therefore, you have underneath this behavioral pattern some sort of belief that makes you do this, this is another level of the existence of this problem. And you need to solve those belief things to solve this problem. Once your beliefs are changed, you no longer have the problem! Therefore, you will no longer have those problems that limits your success.
3. However, there exists an even deeper layer of the problem. This is the layer of your sub-consciousness, the emotional level. The level of you valuing yourself as a human being. On this level you may have a program that you did not know existed in your mind, but this program leads you to fail... it is like a self-sabotage! This program uses beliefs to start those behavioral patterns exactly then the market goes against. This problem lies so deep in sub-consciousness mind so you cannot get access to this program.
What the consciousness, unconsciousness, and sub-consciousness minds are comes from the perspective of your level of attention you need to detect information.
1. The level where you do not need a great focus of your attention, so you may easily see your faults, your emotions programs thoughts and so on is the consciousness level!
2. Next level is unconsciousness where you need to concentrate to get the access to the information. For example, you need to concentrate to remember which color of the pencil was in your first classroom when you were at school. On a particular day, maybe somewhere, all the smells of some sort of present your parents gave you for Christmas, or maybe on your Birthday, you need to concentrate to get access to this information! The more you need to concentrate the more you are using your will power to concentrate, the more the problem or information lies in the area of the unconscious mind.
3. At the sub-conscious mind, it is even deeper! This is like your breathing, your heart rate, your pulse, your emotional system running programs. Therefore, you need to concentrate so much in the area of the subconscious, so strongly so you can get the access to those areas where the problem lay. Therefore, you need to be highly concentrated to get the access to this information, to see what those programs are doing. Only then, you can solve those problems!
And visualisation is a tool for HEALTHY mind dudes )))

. How your mind should be set up, so you can trade better and have better results. It is a common misunderstanding, and a common misbelief that exists in your mind, that in order to be a great trader, or a successful trader you need to predict the market. That you need to predict it on a small period, or a long period of time, or something else. Also, there is existing a misbelief that you need to have a trading plan, that you need to have some trading idea, and to execute those trading ideas or your trading plan, and that you are actually trading the market. BUT, my opinion on this thing, and the method that I use “Is to keep my head clear of all of this stuff”! I do not want to have any suggestions, or any ideas about where the market will go before I enter the trade. OK? I do not know where the market will go. It can go one direction, or another. 50/50! There is random structure and I do believe in these things. Therefore, in order to be a successfully stable trader, you always need to be uncertain about where the market will go. You need to keep your mind clear from all of the stuff mentioned, because if you will seek the 'idea' of where the market will go, then your belief system will start to create a belief 'Loop'. In this loop, your perceptions start to work a way to prove that your belief is true. Then it starts to make up this way. So if you decide that your perception starts to throw out all the information that goes in contrast or controversial to your version of going Long (or Short), that the market will go higher (or lower), and then starts to feed you only the information that proves that you are correct. This is the natural evolutional mechanism to create some sort of system, where you are doing one-for-another type 'actions'. Or you do only one action, and your mind, your physical body, and all the 'stuff' can muster this 'thing', and waste less energy on the processes as you will learn something new every time! Ok? We do not need to apply too much power to do clicks on the 'mouse' or on the buttons, because we already have (brain) 'neuron' connections, which allows us to do this with less power-energy. For example, you have never driven a car. Then you sit in a car and you need to learn how to drive this car. All the neurons, all the neuron networks planted in your mind, your brain, starts to work to understand where it needs to be running. The whole brain is working in order to understand which areas of your brain will be responsible for driving. This is very powerful, and you waste too much energy to learn this thing. However, once those (neuron) connections are established, brain start to maintain process. It is easier for our brain to maintain processes, compare to creating new ones. This is why when you have some sort of belief, your mind starts to create the belief-loop. In this loop, you stay in the same direction, and you brain maintaining this process. This is why all the perception works this way.
However, this is not about trading. In trading we must always be uncertain, so the network we have in our brain will always be in the process of learning, of rewiring (reevaluating) what we have. Constantly rewiring! Then in some period, you will work out some more connections that will already run the process in two different ways, so it will be easier for you to do this. To understand the reality of the market, we must know that is uncertain every fucking moment. The market is always uncertain! To understand this you need to separate your beliefs from the reality of the market. Ok? The charts you see, the chart patterns you see, the price patterns you see on 'tapes', the order patterns you see on Level 2, ARE existing only in your mind! Only in your beliefs. Because somehow, somewhere, sometime, your network brain system created the connections between all those things. And you believe those things exist!

Earl Nightingale "The strangest Secret"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9PmuAFsQOM


17:20 min
"My years in the newspaper business have convinced me of several things among them that people are basically good and that we came from some place and we are going some place. ... The architect of the Universe didn't build a stairway leading to nowhere." -Grove Patterson

18:00 min
He then list the price for success:

What is that price?
  • Understanding emotionally as well as intellectually, that we literally become what we think about.
  • We must control our thoughts if we are to control our lives.
  • Understanding :As you sow so shall you reap."
  • Cutting away all fetters from the mind and permitting it to soar as it was divinely designed to do.
  • Realizing that your limitations are self-imposed.
  • Rising above pettiness.
and:
  • Using all your courage to think positively on your problem,
  • to set a definite and clearly defined goal,
  • think about your goal from all possible angles,
  • let your imagination speculate freely on all possible solutions,
  • refuse to believe there are any circumstances sufficiently strong to defeat you in your purpose.
  • To act promptly and confidently when your course is clear.

peace, love and joy to you

Empowering Beliefs

In a time of quiet reflection you could ask yourself "Is believing in y, and empowering belief or a dis-empowering belief, for me?"
--------------
In conversation sometimes we are asked, "Do you believe in x?" So we often hear the question as, "Is x real?"
We usually respond with yes or no and perhaps our reasons for or against x.

I would like to suggest that for many things, our framework of reality is selectable. For these things what we decide upon can be simply chosen. This is especially important if current external conditions (e.g. current financial status, home, relationships) is the result of past thinking, past beliefs and past actions taken in context of past external reality.

So what belief structure is empowering for me as a framework for my current and future thinking?
That is if I am working to create a new reality, (e.g. new invention, new trading results, new financial condition) and beliefs form the doorway of what is possible for me, how I think and perceive, and if I can select these beliefs - then what beliefs will be beneficial to me?

---------

Beliefs are the doorway to reality.

No one has yet discovered the limitations of the power of his own mind.

Pat Ryan, the chairman and CEO of Aon Corporation, the giant multinational insurance company, is fond of saying, “You can’t conceive how high ‘up’ is, except for the limitations of your own mind.” It’s not very good English, he admits, but it emphatically makes the point that the only limits that can be placed on the power of your mind will be those you impose on it yourself. When you brainstorm, don’t allow limits to be placed on any idea. Sometimes the ideas that seem the craziest at the time will later prove to be the most inspired. If you’re working with your Master Mind group, encourage the free flow of ideas from every individual present. Don’t be critical or analytical during the brainstorming process; at this point, every idea is a good one. Cluster the ideas into groups of related thoughts so that the best of them can later be shaped for practical application.

Condensed Summary of Think and Grow Rich by Earl Nightingale

25:50
Experience with thousands has shown that lack of persistence is a weakness common to the majority of men.
To accomplish the goal you have set for yourself you must form the habit of persistence. Things will get dark. It will seem as though there is no longer any reason to continue. Everything in you will tell you to give up and quit trying. And it is right here that the men are separated from the boys. Its right here that if you will go the extra mile and keep going, that the skies will clear. And you will begin to see the first signs of the abundance that is to be yours, because you had the courage to persist. With persistence will come success.

"Don't let petty annoyances throw you off track."
-The Strangest Secret, Earl Nightingale

When we are striving to stay focus on our central goal, outside influences such as negative comments, negative attitudes and negative vibrations of others impinge upon our conscious and unconscious minds. If we are not monitoring our thoughts (and feelings) we can move into a negative vibration (a depressed mood, anger etc).

It is important while building our new habit of positive vibration that we be alert to this danger, and quickly stuff out the chain of negative thoughts and negative mood. This isn't easy, yet building a new habit isn't easy. It is all too easy to fall into the worn record groove of the past.

Great achievement is born of a struggle.

Our strength grows out of our weakness, said Ralph Waldo Emerson. “Not until we are pricked and stung and sorely shot at, awakens the indignation which arms itself with secret forces.” Strife and struggle can inspire you to overcome adversity and to propel yourself to real achievement. View every struggle as an opportunity for personal growth. It is the struggle itself, not the result that builds character.

Successful people are decisive. They don’t agonize over decisions and thereby miss out on a great opportunity. They gather the relevant information, discuss alternatives with advisers whose opinions they respect, and then make a decision and get on with it. Indecision creates the worst kind of paralysis and, left unattended, can permanently damage you and your organization. If you have trouble making decisions, remember that there are few decisions that are irreversible. If you later discover that you were wrong, correct your course and move on.

Bob Proctor goes through some detail explaining the mind is not the brain. No one has seen the mind and that it why we have problems, because we think in pictures.

When we set our goal we must see it as a picture. We must be able to picture our goal. We have to create that picture of ourselves living our new life and see it. See the people and things that are there. Hear the words what we are saying and people are saying to us. See ourselves in our new home, walking around in it doing things in it enjoying it. See our new car, see ourselves washing it taking it for a drive on beautiful sunny day.

See our new enterprises flourishing and bringing good to others. See and hear ourselves talking with our executives about the new projects discussing ideas and creating new projects and the excitement and joy everyone it having.

See our lasting contributions and how we are bringing enrichment, joy and fulfillment to those who were in poverty and without hope. See the wildlife preserves and the beauty and vibrancy on nature restored to lush abundance.

See the joy, love and beauty you of the new world you are building and the happiness and fulfillment of all those you touch.

Many businesses today advocate “continuous improvement” as part of their quality programs. They have realized that to remain competitive in today’s global economy they must constantly strive to improve every aspect of the business, otherwise they will be overtaken by the competition.

The same ethic applies to individuals. All of life is a continuous learning experience.

Every success and every temporary setback only serve to prepare you for the time when you will eventually prevail. Your short-and medium-term goals should be realistic and achievable, but your long-term goals should always far exceed your present capabilities.

As the Roman poet Virgil said, “Fortune sides with him who dares.”

It is the nature of opportunity that it simply refuses to attach itself to negative thinkers. Negative minds cannot conceive exciting new business opportunities, invent innovative new products, solve difficult problems, or create beautiful music or works of art.

When you approach every challenge with a Positive Mental Attitude, you will always discover opportunities that others have overlooked. Relish your achievements and recall them when the going gets tough.

Take comfort in the knowledge that you have succeeded in the past and you can do it again. You can do it if you think you can!

The kindness and courtesies you extend to others need not be large and expensive. A kind word, a friendly greeting, or assistance with a favorite project lets others know that you care enough about them to lend a helping hand. When you help another cheerfully and enthusiastically without asking for anything in return, you have made a friend who is interested in your success.

1. You have to know where you are
2. You have to know where you are going (your guiding star)

Now, ignore where you are and think of where you really want to go - Ray Standford (Bob's first mentor)
What do you REALLY want to do?
It had been so long since I dreamed that I really didn't know. If we take a pen and a pad and write down - "What do I really want to do?" There is a part in our paradigm that stops us.

You don't need to know how you are going to do it.
No one have ever flown until the Wright brothers did.
No one have ever climbed to the top of Everest until Hilliary did.

Min9:

Who ARE you REALLY? (not your name, body)

Who am I ? - you are a soul (you don't have one you are one)


You are a spiritual being gifted with an intellect, fantastic factors,
We have magnificent mental tools locked up in us and we live in a body.

How we use our intellect is going to dictate our emotional state.
Our emotional state is very likely doing to control how we behave.

-----------------end of quote from video-----------



[Thinking about this:
As traders our emotional state can have a huge impact on our trading, so yes
"Our emotional state is very likely doing to control how we behave."

If we are vibrating to an image of success, feeling relaxed and confident seeing our perfection, how much more powerful our trading will be.]

Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.

Opportunities are not windfalls.

Winning a sweepstakes makes you instantly rich; encountering an opportunity means you will have to go to work.

When you have attuned your mind to recognize opportunities, you will understand that most often they involve the exploitation of some potential, such as providing a new or better service, streamlining production, or reaching a new market.

This is why the habit of initiative is so important. You must be prepared to act as soon as you recognize an opportunity. The action may be simply further investigation, or it may be making an instant sale. Most often, however, an opportunity takes time and perseverance to develop.

We are happiest when we are striving to achieve a goal. When we achieve one goal, it’s a natural human tendency to set another, usually bigger, one.

Bob Proctor on How to Visualize, Think and Grow Rich & Reading | #TalksAbout 01 Catalin Matel of Romania

3 things to do each morning:

1. take a pen and paper and write out 10 things you are really grateful for. (You've gotta be Really grateful).
2. send love to 3 people that are bothering you (you don't like them that doesn't matter you are raising you vibration)
3. for 5 minutes be completely quiet and ask for guidance for the day.

peace, love and joy to you

It is this — all achievement, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea!

If you are ready for the secret you already possess one half of it; therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.

Your old condition causes the fear. To get through the terror barrier say to yourself:
"I understand what is causing this worry and it is not justified.
It is not justified.
It is the old conditioning that is causing the worry."

However, if you allow yourself to get emotionally involved with the worry then it will set up fear and fear must be expressed through the only instrument it can your body. This is where the anxiety comes from.

"I going to go through the barrier and the way that I will do this it to continually play with the new idea, the goal over and over again."
This is where the repetition comes in.

Whenever you go to raise the bar, to do something you are not conditioned to do, the terror barrier will come up.

------------------------ my thoughts on the terror barrier --------

By getting emotionally involved with the new idea you raise your vibration to that idea which is high and higher than the lower vibration of fear. This will give you respite from the anxiety.

The unknown anxiety producing because we do not know how to accomplish the task or if we will succeed. If we see the success in our mind and live it in our mind we are telling the subconscious we will succeed for it can see the image of our success.

The subconscious cannot tell the difference between a vividly imagined idea and reality. So to the subconscious, at the time of our vivid imagining of success - success is a reality. Not in the future in the now. For the subconscious does not deal with the future or past. If we hold a past memory in our mind we are there at that moment in the past re-living it. If we hold a future memory in our mind we are there at that moment in the future and living it.

This is an very important concept.

Both positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time.

From NH Email


--------------
Perhaps we can extend this to trading:
Both images of successful trading and failed trade cannot occupy the mind at the same time.

If we are imaging how the trade will fail our apprehension can cloud our judgement and cause trade execution errors, cutting a good trade short.

This evening I was re-listening to Paradigm shift Ep2.
(2.Paradigm Shift Bob Proctor - Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing Ep. 2)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFufvLqOzhE

In it Bob tells the story about how he got a Prudential Life insurance agent to sell $5M of insurance in a year.
I have listened to the recording many times and the story many times as well.

As I was listening this evening I could see in my mind when the agent, Don Slocum, came up to him in the break and challenged him;

"You've never sold insurance have you?
-No.

"I thought not."
-Why do you say that?

"Because you don't know what you're talking about,"
-Oh I do know what I'm talking about, I just said I had never sold insurance.

"Do you know that Prudential is the largest insurance company in the world?"
-I've heard that.

"Do you know that Prudential is almost 100 years old?"
-I've heard that too.

"Do you know that no one in the history of the company has EVER sold $5m in a year."
-Well you can be the first.

Don went on to sell $6m by the end of the year even though the seminar was in August..

-------------------
As I listened to the story I was thinking how often most people bring up that because someone has never done something no one can.

Yet our history is full of stories that show that statement isn't true.

If we believe we are beings who can connect to unlimited intelligence and we have seen many stories in our history of people achieving what others said was impossible - why do we work to limit our potential?

Perhaps it will take some effort, some focus, some dedication and persistence to do what others say is impossible, but the vision of it being possible is the key first step on that journey.

Vision without action is merely a dream.

Action without vision just passes the time.

Vision with action can change the world.

The mind never becomes tired, but sometimes it becomes bored with the “food” it gets.

Computer experts use the acronym gigo — garbage in, garbage out — to illustrate the fact that the computer can process only the information it is given. The same is true with your mind. If you feed it healthful, nourishing “food,” it will grow strong and agile, but if you restrict it to a regular diet of mental “junk food,” your mind will become unhealthy, negative, and unproductive. It will return to you what you put into it. Feed your mind a balanced, nourishing diet. Study information from a variety of fields to help you keep up with the latest trends. You may find that the best ideas for your business come from a totally unrelated area.

Sound character begins with keen self-respect.

No one really knows for sure how we develop self-respect, but the experts believe it begins at a very early age. Parents who show their children that they love them unconditionally — just because they are who they are — build a foundation of healthy self-respect that will sustain the children for the rest of their lives. From this foundation comes the moral and ethical structure known as character. Healthy self-respect should not be confused with egotism. An egotist loves himself for the most superficial of reasons, while a self-respecting person takes pride in qualities of character that he or she has worked hard to develop.

Far too many people spend their entire lives waiting for that glorious day when the perfect opportunity presents itself to them.

Too late, they realize that each day held opportunity for those who sought it out.

If you have not formulated a plan for what you would like to accomplish in your life, don’t waste another minute. When you have Definiteness of Purpose fueled by a burning desire to reach your objectives, nothing can stand in your way. Don’t wait around waiting for life to happen to you.

When you know what you want and how you expect to earn it, life will agree to your terms.

Willpower is the outgrowth of definiteness of purpose expressed through persistent action, based on personal initiative.


Success occurs when you have a definite purpose for your life and you take the initiative to follow through with action.

Ep5
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWkruaxyYiw
min 10

Most people set goals on the A level. Why? They don't want to fail.
Failing is a part of winning, but most people don't know that.
Why don't we want to fail?
It comes from our childhood.

baby - they are going to fall but they are also going to get up and keep on going.
Setting goals where we don't fail means not growing.

"They want to be realistic when they set goals.
You've gotta be realistic, you can't have all A's

Yes. you can have all A's.
We are God's highest form of creation."

If you look hard enough, you can always find reasons for not attempting something.

Successful people set goals. Where others see despair, they see hope.

They approach every situation with enthusiasm, confident in the knowledge that nothing is impossible for those who have a Positive Mental Attitude.

You will find as you go through life that those who give advice most freely are precisely the individuals who are least qualified to do so. Who told you it couldn’t be done, and what great achievements has he performed that qualified him to set up limitations for you?

Mediocre people have all the time in the world. They also delight in seeing you fail, and are quick to say “I told you so” when you experience a temporary setback.

If someone tells you that what you are attempting to achieve is impossible or not worth the effort, take a close look at them and what they have accomplished with their lives.


The chances are good that you will find they haven’t done much.

Successful people are optimistic people. Busy, successful people don’t have an interest in telling you how to live your life. They are busy living their own. They have the habit of success because they learned long ago to listen to themselves and not to those who would like to see them fail.

I was thinking about the power of beliefs.

A friend was very happy with a Thermos they had purchased as it keeps their coffee piping hot for several hours.
In a burst of enthusiasm and generosity they offered to buy me one one as a gift.

Well I don't use aluminum or stainless steel (Alzheimer's and prostate cancer). But then that is my belief.
One the person replied "Ok now you've got me worried" I realized my mistake. If I was thinking more clearly I should have said: "I just use glass".

I went then said "But that's just theory not proven" to mollify what I had said.

Though it can be argued what might or might not help cause an ailment or cancer one thing, for me, is clear--
beliefs are very powerful

both for good or bad.

To the woman who touched his cloak, Jesus said: "Your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
Ford "If you believe a thing is possible or if you believe it is impossible you are most likely right."

The aluminum might not cause Alzheimer's but the worry has a very good chance of causing it. It very important to be careful what we say and how we say it.

Words have power.
