Reduce Stress: Eliminate Negative Self-talk Doctors at Mayo Clinic say positive thinking helps with stress management and can even improve your health. They suggest eliminating negative self-talk. Here are some examples of negative self-talk: Filtering. You magnify the negative aspects of a situation and filter out all of the positive ones. For example, say you had a great day at work. You completed your tasks ahead of time and were complimented for doing a speedy and thorough job. But you forgot one minor step. That evening, you focus only on your oversight and forget about the compliments you...

Be Happy; Be A Forgiver

Be Happy; Be A Forgiver Are you easily offended?  Many people are, and it makes them miserable.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  You can control your thoughts.  It isn’t easy, but it can be done.  I write about that in my book, Thought: An Awesome Creative Force. I encountered two unhappy people today while I was trying to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in a local restaurant.  They both dumped on me.  That’s what unhappy people do; they spread their misery.  “Misery loves company.”  You’ve heard the saying. One person was on the telephone a couple of tables over, giving someone on...

Effectiveness Can Be Learned

Effectiveness Can Be Learned We often think leaders and executives possess high intelligence, extreme creativity and stunning imagination, but these qualities are not in short supply.  Nor are they the most important qualities of executives.

Effectiveness is in short supply in most organizations these days.  Why is that? I don’t know all the reasons, but I know one of the reasons.  If you think about it, you’ll...

One Small Act Defeated Discouragement I was a 20-year-old college student 200 miles from home selling Bibles door-to-door in rural Indiana. Lonely, homesick and missing my girlfriend, I wasn’t doing too well selling Bibles.  And I wasn’t making any money. Reluctantly, I was knocking on doors, but my heart really wasn’t in it.  I was discouraged. I stopped at a pretty little clapboard house with a neat white picket fence in front.  After letting myself through the gate, I timidly knocked on the door. The biggest, hairiest man I ever saw jerked open the door.  He was wearing a greasy undershirt and...

Thinking Like A Genius

Thinking Like A Genius The natural function of the brain is to learn, to explore, and to expand its own mental powers.  We have in our head a vast, substantially-dormant super bio-computer, the human mind, given to us free at birth. The nature of genius is in all human beings; it is the nurture of that nature that is all-important; this view has been held by many of the great geniuses themselves. A study of 100 of the greatest geniuses in history proves that all our societal prejudices about genius are wrong. “Great intelligence is characterized by robust health, greater physical size, advanced...
