Thinking is usually a mixture of words, sentences, mental images
and sensations. Thoughts are visitors, who visit the central station
of the mind. They come, stay for a while and then disappear making
space for other thoughts. Some of these thoughts stay longer, gain
power and affect the life of the person thinking them.
Lot of people let thoughts connected with worry, fear, anger or
unhappiness occupy their mind most of the time. They keep engaging
their mind with inner conversation about negative situations and
actions. This inner conversation eventually affects the subconscious
mind, making it accept and take seriously the thoughts and ideas
expressed in those inner conversations.
It is of vital importance to be careful of what goes into the
subconscious mind. Words and thoughts that are repeated often get
stronger by the repetitions, sink into the subconscious mind and affect
the behavior, actions and reactions of the person involved.
The subconscious mind regards the words and thoughts that get
lodged inside it as expressing and describing a real situation, and
therefore endeavors to align the words and thoughts with reality. It
works diligently to make these words and thoughts a reality in the life
of the person saying or thinking them.
This means that if you often tell yourself that it is diffcult or
impossible to acquire money, the subconscious mind will accept your
words and place obstacles in your way. If you keep saying that you are
rich, it will fnd ways to bring you opportunities and push you towards
taking advantage of these opportunities.
The thoughts that you express through your words shape your life.
This is often done unconsciously, as few pay attention to their thoughts
and the words they use while thinking, and let outside circumstances
and situations determine what they think about. Here the outside world
affects the inner world.
If you consciously choose the thoughts, phrases and words that
you repeat in your mind, your life will start to change. You will begin
creating new situations and circumstances. You will be using the
power of affrmations.
Affrmations are sentences that are repeated often during the day,
and which sink into the subconscious mind, thereby releasing its
enormous power to materialize the intention of the words and phrases
in the outside world. This does not mean that every word has the power
to make changes. The words have to be said with attention, intention
and with feeling, in order to trigger the subconscious mind into action.
Affrmations have to be phrased in positive words in order to be
effective. Consider the following two sentences:
1. I am not weak anymore.
2. I am strong and powerful.
Though both sentences seem to say the same thing in different
words, the frst one is a negative sentence. It creates in the mind a
mental image of weakness. This is a wrong wording. The second
sentence awakens in the mind a mental image of strength.
It is not enough to say an affrmation a few times, and then expect
your life to change. More than this is necessary. It is important to affrm
with attention, as well as with strong desire, faith and persistence. It is
also important to choose the right affrmation for any specifc situation.
You need to feel comfortable with it; otherwise the affrmation may not
work or may bring you something that you do not want.
Affrmations can be used to strengthen the process of creative
visualization, and they can be used on their own. They are of special
importance for people who fnd it diffcult to visualize. In this case they
are a substitution to creative visualization.
Instead of repeating negative, useless words and phrases in the
mind, you can choose positive words and phrases to help you build
the life you want. By choosing your thoughts and words you exercise
control over your life. Here are a few affrmations:
* Day by day, in every way, I am becoming happier and more
* With every inhalation I am flling myself with happiness.
* Love is flling my life now.
* The power of the Cosmos is flling my life with love.
* A lot of money is fowing now into my life.
* The power of the Universal Mind is now flling my life with wealth.
* The powerful and vital energy of the Cosmos is fowing and flling
my body and mind.
* Healing energy is constantly flling every cell of my body.
* I always stay calm and in control of myself, in every situation
and in all circumstances.
* I am having a wonderful, happy and fascinating day.

The mind does not make an appearance within physical reality,
but the brain is based in physical reality. Our dreams occupy the
same space as the mind -- that is, no space at all. The images that
appear in dreams appear as forms in other realities and they are
not restricted by our physical reality rules of time, space and growth.
They involve the materialization of spontaneous constructions which
would normally not occur in our physical world.
Dreams are a continuous fowing process which run continuously
in the wide awake and the dream states.
While we are in the wide awake state they run subconsciously. The
materializations we create in our dreams have no mass in our physical
reality but may have the equivalent of mass in other realities. In the
dream state the personality is molded and changed via actions that
do not exist in the physical universe.
These dream based subjective events eventually manipulate
physical matter and events for the individual concerned, depending
upon how they have consciously or subconsciously programmed
their dreams.
One persons dream affects anothers and that person is in turn
affected by the neighbors dreams. In many cases dreams (in slightly
different formats) are shared by two or more people and in some cases
close-knit communities have shared mass dreams.
We have mass dreams that occur just above the level relating to
the collective unconscious. If we are able to tune in to these dreams
(and some individuals can) we would gain an impression of what
our society is collectively dreaming -- which would then give us an
indication of future events, as our dreams format our future, both
individually and collectively.
Sometimes these collective dreams contain enough power to
signifcantly alter the future, for better or for worse. It is interesting to
note that the dreams of one very powerful individual can affect the
dreams of thousands of other people and this type of individual is
capable of becoming a leader or Guru.
They generally become known in the dream state frst and are
recognized in the physical world later.
Through very intense emotional focus you can create a form then
project it to another person who may then perceive it. This may be
done consciously or unconsciously. The presence of this form can
now be detected by sensitive scientifc instruments.
During the dreaming state your awareness is focused in another
reality that is in every way as permanent and valid as the physical
reality universe. During sleep only a small amount of your energy is
focused in the physical feld, enough to maintain the bodily functions
The dream universe is also composed of a molecular structure, but
takes up no space as we know it. It is continuous but your awareness
of it is normally limited to your sleep/dreaming periods.
The events in the dream reality are as meaningful as the events
in your physical world and indeed are interrelated. One affects the
other and vice versa. This is why it is possible (and extremely easy)
to program up dreams which have an almost immediate effect in your
physical universe.
One of the easiest and most effective types of dream that you can
pre-program relates to your physical health. Sometimes a correctly
programmed dream can cause almost miraculous improvements to
your health in as little as 12 hours.

Analysis program by our President Mr Muthiah Ramanathan on
20th July 2014.
By Richard Branson - Source: Business Day
I recently hosted the annual Sunday Times Fast Track 100 event
at my Oxfordshire home. It brings together leaders from the 100
fastest-growing private companies in Britain, a number of leading
entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs.
We spent the day listening to each other and sharing stories of
achievement and innovation. There was lots of laughter and some
great conversations. Looking at the people gathered around our
dinner table, I had a wonderful opportunity to refect on what makes a
successful entrepreneur. I found myself going back to basics: the three
key attributes that can make a real difference to a persons career.
While Ive touched on these points before, some of the
entrepreneurs stories highlighted them in new ways. If you have these
basics down, you can give your risky idea a go with the confdence
that youre prepared to ride out any trying times ahead.
1. Keep it simple
The best and most successful ideas are those that improve peoples
lives. Their founders often have a simple plan focused on a single
product or service, one that is prompted by frustration.
Paul Lindley, the founder of Ellas Kitchen, started his business
because he could not get his daughter to eat. He wanted to create
a convenient product that would make mealtimes fun for babies and
young children, along with their parents.
Paul came up with the idea of producing colourful, tactile pouches
flled with organic meals. The innovative recipes wowed parents
and toddlers alike, and took market leaders such as Heinz and Hipp
Organic in Britain by surprise, since their rather stale offerings relied
on glass jars and traditional favours. Ellas Kitchen has captured 19%
of the market in the UK and copycats are packaging their products
in pouches.
As he told his story, it was clear that Paul truly loves his work. He
turned his momentary frustration about the diffculty of feeding his
daughter into something that is making mealtimes more enjoyable
for families.
2. If at frst you dont succeed...
Few frst ventures work out. It is how a novice entrepreneur deals
with failure that sets that person apart. In fact, failure is one of the
secrets to success, since some of the best ideas arise from the ashes
of a shuttered business.
If you are an entrepreneur and your frst venture wasnt a success,
welcome to the club every successful businessperson has
experienced a few failures along the way. In the US, most investors
will look at an entrepreneurs past failures before making a decision,
not because they are worried about it but because they want to see
that the person can withstand the occasional knock. Resilience is
one of the hallmarks of an entrepreneur who stays in business in the
long term.
Talking with the team who runs the Branson Centre in Johannesburg,
I was heartened by Dylan Jonsons story, as it shows that our
entrepreneurs are learning from their mistakes and building new
ventures. Dylan is a trained chef who started a restaurant, which then
failed because of poor planning. However, he has since launched his
next venture, A Thyme to Dine, which is a catering business that also
sells four types of chocolate balsamic reductions he developed while
running the restaurant.
This skill in identifying a winning formula despite his despair at
seeing his restaurant close marks Dylan as one to watch. Some of his
sauces and drink powders have been picked up by two national chains
in South Africa and he is looking to start international sales soon.
3. Are you having fun yet?
If you dont like being an entrepreneur, youre doing it wrong. When
you cant wait to get to work in the morning and you are generally
having a good time, there is a far greater chance that youll create a
positive, innovative atmosphere and your business will fourish.
Keith Bete, a Branson Centre entrepreneur, epitomises this attitude
perfectly. He founded Ubuntuism, a clothing venture based on Ubuntu,
an African humanist philosophy that focuses on building a peaceful,
prosperous community where riches are shared and people are treated
with respect. His passion and enthusiasm is infectious: everyone he
met at the conference wanted to buy a T-shirt and learn more about
his company.
(Confrontation is not about putting the other person down or
throwing them off balance).
Confrontations are hard. They are diffcult because they often
leave a bad taste. The person you are confronting may choose to
deny, disagree, resist, or if hes sincere, there may be an apology,
but its never a pleasant conversation by any stretch of imagination.
It could be between a manager and a worker, between two partners,
parent-child, two friends, between teams or even governments. Let
us see the three golden principles of confrontation.
1. Dont raise your voice
Its absolutely critical to not shout if you want any positive
outcome. Think about this: we confront someone because we want
them to listen to us and accept that they acted irresponsibly or it caused
us pain. The only chance you have of getting them to listen to you is
by not raising your voice. Why? Human mind is naturally open to
pleasant conversations. When you keep your voice low, they may
disagree but their brain wont allow them to shut you out. The primary
difference between a conversation and an argument is the pitch and
tone of the voice. Disagreement may be there in both the cases but
in an argument, both parties are talking when none is listening. When
you shout at anyone, they immediately turn off and withdraw. Their
mind shifts from conversing to completely avoiding the issue or being
defensive. On the other hand, if you talk about it in your normal tone,
you may feel they havent understood the seriousness of the situation,
but your words will fnd a way into their mind.
2. Dont attack
Remember, the goal of any confrontation is to have the other
person see your perspective and to have them cease from acting
a certain way. You cant accomplish this by putting them down or
attacking them. Give them a chance to save their face. Start with
the assumption that they made a mistake. Without violating the frst
principle, if you keep the focus on how their actions are hurting you
and the relationship, or, how its not in their own best interest, they are
likely to listen to you better. But when we attack the other person by
saying, you did this and you did that, you are like this and you are like
that and so on and so forth, we create a giant barrier and now they
are on the other side of the fence. They turn defensive and to protect
themselves, they launch a counter-attack. This defeats the purpose,
the distance increases, and both people end up angrier.
3. Dont deviate
This is the hardest of the three. Often, when we confront
someone, they want to evade the issue. To avoid any explanations,
apologies or consequences, theres a natural tendency to deviate
from the real issue. If both get carried away, it becomes impossible
to retain any sense or sensibility in the confrontation. It will quickly
turn into a heated argument or a violent disagreement. When the
other person digresses, just hear them out, let them fnish and then
politely persist with the primary issue because if you deviate as well,
itll become a pointless argument resulting in a lot of talk but no
conclusion. It is paramount to stay focused and to keep it to the point.
For example, if you want to confront someone about being late,
only talk about the present instance. Dont start talking about
how they are always late, how they are not effcient or competent
and so on.
Once again, bear in mind that the objective of any confrontation is
to make the other person aware of their certain actions you disapprove
of. It is not to demean or deprecate them. Therefore, your selection of
words, tone, gestures and timing will make a huge difference to the
outcome. That said, if you have to confront someone more than
a couple of times over the same issue, theres little hope theyll
ever mend their ways because for the wise and sincere, even a
subtle hint is more than enough.
If the other person is not willing to come clean, no conversation
or confrontation, however done, can yield any result.
A friend approached Mulla Nasrudin to borrow his donkey for a
few hours.
But, I dont have my donkey. It ran away last night, said Mulla,
and, I cant fnd him.
His friend looked at him skeptically. Mulla maintained an affrmative
and quiet mien. Just then the donkey started to bray loudly.
Mulla! I can hear your donkey in your house. You lied to me! I
thought we were friends.
Exactly! Are you telling me you trust a donkeys braying more than
your friends words.
Life is colorful because of the various shades; not all colors
can be white, not all can be red or black; not all dialogues can be
pleasant or desirable. Success in relationships professional
and personal depends a great deal on your ability to handle
difference of opinions and on how you hold unpleasant
conversations. May you confront confrontations happily !
A saint asked his disciples, Why do we shout in anger? Why do
people shout at each other when they are upset?
Disciples thought for a while; then, one of them said, Because we
lose our calm, we shout . But, why to shout when the other person
is just next to you? asked the saint. Isnt it possible to speak to him
or her in a normal voice? Why do you shout at a person when youre
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfed the saint.
Finally, he explained, When two people are angry at each other,
their hearts get distanced. To cover that distance they must shout
so as to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will
have to shout to hear each other through that much more distance.
Then the saint asked, What happens when two people fall in love?
They dont shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their
hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small...
The saint continued, When they love each other even more, what
happens? They do not speak, only whisper; they get closer to each
other in their love. Finally, they even need not whisper, they only look
at each other and thats all. That is how close two people are when
they love each other.
MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant,
do not say words that distance each other more, else there will
come a day when the distance is so great that you will not fnd
the path to return.
1) Sylvester Stallone : Sylvester Stallone was so broke that he
had to sell his wifes jewelry and then his dog to pay his bills. He only
became successful when the script for the movie Rocky was accepted
(And he was 30 at that time)
2) Harrison Ford: He was a struggling actor and had to work as
a carpenter to pay his bills. He never saw real success before he was
3) J. K. Rowling (Author of Harry Potter series): She struggled
for years and her scripts got rejected until she managed to sell the frst
one in her mid thirties. She then became a billionaire a few years
4) Steve Jobs: Even though Steves company became successful
at a young age he was kicked out of it when he was in his early thirties.
He had to start all over and managed to become successful once
again in his mid thirties.
5) Larry Ellison (Oracle): Larry had to work for a software
company until he was 34. It was then that he decided to start his own
business and within years he became a famous billionaire.
6) Mark Pincus (Zynga): After moving from one failure to another
Mark discovered that his passion was in gaming. He started his
company Zynga quite late in life only to become a billionaire in his
7) Jack Dorsey (Twitter): After job hopping, Jack found his passion
in social networking. He started twitter and instantly became successful
in his late thirties
8) Susan Boyle: After struggling with crippling fnancial diffculties,
partial mental handicap and death of her mother she became a famous
singer at the age of 47.
9) Abraham Lincoln: Most probably he was the most defeated
man in the world. After losing so many times in different elections
he succeeded in becoming the President of the United States at the
age of 51.
10) Colonel Sanders(KFC): Thats probably the best example
you are going to see in your life about starting late. Colonel Sanders
started his idea when he was 65 years old and in a few years had
one of the largest restaurant chains in the world.
It would have been better if you made it earlier but being late doesnt
mean that you can never do it. Those were just some examples of
people who succeeded late in life just because they believed that age
had nothing to do with success. Once you develop that belief you will
be able to make it as well. It is never too late !
This is a true story that happened in Japan.
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open
the wall.
Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the
wooden walls.
When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard
stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its
He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when
he checked the nail,
it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was frst built.
The lizard has survived in such a position for 5 years in a dark
wall partition without moving. It was impossible and mind-boggling.
Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 5 years without
even moving a single step, since its foot was nailed.
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has
been doing, and what and how it has been eating.
Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard,
with food in its mouth.
Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. Now he knew the
For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been
feeding it for the past 5 years...
Imagine it has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without
giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do that which a creature
blessed with a brilliant mind cant.

Never Say youre Busy When They Really Need You ...
You May Have The Entire World At Your Feet.....
But You Might Be The Only World To Them....
A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loved
you against all odds..
Before you say something just remember. It always takes a
moment to Break but an entire lifetime to Make...
By Mr V J Thamizharasan
A wise woman who was travelling in the mountains found a
precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveller
who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share
her food. The hungry traveller saw the precious stone and asked
the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The
traveller left, rejoicing in his good fortune.
He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a
lifetime. But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to
the wise woman. Ive been thinking, he said. I know how valuable
this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me
something even more precious. Give me what you have within
you that enabled you to give me this stone. Sometimes its not
the wealth you have but whats inside you that others need..A
Precious Gift inside you.
