 Start believing that success to you is inevitable.

Whatever task you are given, picture success in your mind. Burn the thought into your
subconscious mind. Keep yourself focused on the outcome that you want to achieve in what you do. The mind can achieve anything that it believes and conceives.

You will be surprised to know that there is a giant asleep within yourself. You can direct him to do anything that you want.

You have no idea what you are capable of. Don’t underestimate yourself. Believe it, the  power of your mind and imagination is truly exceptional.

You can think your way to almost anything in life – success, happiness, illness and even death.

Read this small story.

Willy was a middle-aged man who was working in a refrigeration unit in Washington.

One day he somehow got himself locked inside the unit accidentally. He banged on the door, he screamed for some time, but no one heard him. He gave up.

Willy sat down defeated and was sure that he was going to die soon. He became all numb and cold. He somehow scribbled a message for the people who would eventually find him.

“Getting colder now, starting to shiver, nothing to do but wait, slowly freezing to death, half asleep now these are my final words”.

At least five hours passed before someone opened the door and found the dead man’s body.

Now that’s a sad story. Here comes the twist.  The unit was working fine all of the time! It
was just a fault and it had stopped working but the guy had simply thought that it was really cold and had willed himself to death.

That’s the power of the mind! Use it for a fulfilled life!

Good luck

What is the Best Workout?

Is the treadmill is the most beneficial way to burn off body fat?

It doesn’t matter – just do it!

Get Moving

There are gobs of cardiovascular activities that may help you burn off fat. Cardiovascular activities help you burn off calories, make you more fit, and better your health. Everybody wishes to know which one is the most beneficial for his or her specific goals.

Let’s have a look at what cardiovascular activity is first off. Plainly put, cardiovascular exercise is movement that utilizes the major muscle groups of your body in a rhythmical pattern.

When identifying the activity, we utilize duration (how long), intensity level (pulse, rating of perceived effort), frequency (times per week), and mode (sort of activity).

Intensity and length are related to one another. You are able to work out longer at lower intensities, but you’ll burn off more calories in a shorter time period at a higher intensity.

As for frequency, authorities deviate in their recommendations. The scope tends to be anyplace from 3 to 5 days a week. The last element of cardiovascular activity is mode.

Here are a few modes of cardiovascular action:

Walking (outdoors or treadmill)

Running (outdoors or treadmill)

Swimming

Rollerblading

Step climbing

Elliptical conditioning

Water aerobic exercise

Aerobic exercise/step classes

Biking

There are a lot more! I’m certain you are able to think of a few I didn’t include on this list. Which of these actions do you believe will be most effective for slimming down? How about for bringing down cholesterol? Toning your body? Increasing vitality? Most crucial to our discussion, which action is best for burning off fat?

Well, the reality is, it’s a trick question– they’re all equally effective. Just like picking out the best time of day for you to exercise, you need to pick the type of cardiovascular activity that you like the most and are most likely to follow. You’ll be much more consistent and reap more advantages when your activity is pleasurable.

Let me interject one crucial detail. As you advance through your workouts, you’ll have to add and keep assortment in your exercise routine. If you only walk on the treadmill, after some time your body will get used to it and no longer continue to better.

Pick a 2nd activity like rollerblading or biking so your body has to adjust to new activities. This is called cross-training and it’s crucial to utilize so your body doesn’t get used to one activity. It’s likewise crucial so you don’t get a repetitive motion injury from exercising only one way.

Consider your present exercise routine:

Do you utilize mostly front to back movements, like running, walking or elliptical training? If so, attempt rollerblading, sliding, or tennis. These actions add a sideways element for variety.

Are you working out inside? Attempt walking or running outside. It’s surprising how much tougher it can be to run outdoors when you’re used to simply utilizing the treadmill.

Are you only exercising at the gym? Discover an alternate activity you may do at home in case of inclemency or if you just don’t feel like getting out.

Are you merely utilizing the bike? Begin walking and add some impact to your workout – your bones will appreciate it! If you’re participating in all impact activities, take a look at swimming or bicycling one or two times a week to prevent injury.

The primary point here is that the most effective cardiovascular training is the one you like to do and will do on a steady basis, and don’t forget to find a few different activities for cross-training.

Most companies recognize in their mission statements that customer satisfaction is essential to their ability to grow their business.

In conducting various focus groups we have learned that some companies accomplish this by offering better products and service. Some do this by improved quality control. Others try to improve value and timely delivery.

These five objectives (product, quality, personalized services, timely delivery, and value) appear to satisfy customers. However, there is no company that consistently
uses all five on a continuous basis.

The challenge therefore for management is how to get employees to consciously deliver these services to the customer.

Understanding that the focus must be on the employee is key to delivering the services. Unfortunately, some companies depend solely on their marketing instead and end up not delivering the promise.

In 1972, I was challenged by my boss to develop a training program that would get employees to deliver these services to the customer on a continuous basis.

After several months of trial and error we came up with a program that proved to be successful. The program focused on employee needs and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs was our starting point.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is predetermined in order of importance. It is often depicted as a pyramid consisting of five levels: the lowest level is associated with physiological
needs, while the uppermost level is associated with self-actualization needs, particularly those related to identity and purpose. Deficiency needs must be met first. Once these are met, seeking to satisfy growth needs drives personal growth.

The higher needs in this hierarchy only come into focus when the lower needs in the pyramid are met. Once an individual has moved upwards to the next level, needs in the lower level will no longer be prioritized. If a lower set of needs is no longer being met, the
individual will temporarily re-prioritize those needs by focusing attention on the unfulfilled needs, but will not permanently regress to the lower level. For instance, a businessman at the esteem level who is diagnosed with cancer will spend a great deal of time concentrating on his health (physiological needs), but will continue to value his work performance (esteem needs) and will likely return to work during periods of remission.

The lower four layers of the pyramid are what Maslow called “deficiency needs” or “D-needs”: physiological, safety and security, love and belonging, and esteem. With the exception of the lowest (physiological) needs, if these “deficiency needs” are not met, the body gives no physical indication but the individual feels anxious and tense.

For the most part, physiological needs are obvious – they are the literal requirements for human survival. If these requirements are not met (with the exception of sex), the human body simply cannot continue to function.

Physiological needs include:
• Breathing
• Homeostasis
• Water
• Sleep
• Food
• Excretion
• Sex
• Clothing
• Shelter

With their physical needs relatively satisfied, the individual’s safety needs take over and dominate their behavior. These needs have to do with people’s yearning for a predictable, orderly world in which injustice and inconsistency are under control, the familiar frequent and the unfamiliar rare. In the world of work, these safety needs manifest themselves in such things as a preference for job security, grievance procedures for protecting the individual from unilateral authority, savings accounts, insurance policies, and the like.

For the most part, physiological and safety needs are reasonably well satisfied in the “First World.” The obvious exceptions, of course, are people outside the mainstream — the poor and the disadvantaged. If frustration has not led to apathy and weakness, such
people still struggle to satisfy the basic physiological and safety needs. They are primarily concerned with survival: obtaining adequate food, clothing, shelter, and seeking justice from the dominant societal groups.

Safety and Security needs include:

• Personal security
• Financial security
• Health and well-being
• Safety net against accidents/illness and the adverse impacts

Social needs.

After physiological and safety needs are fulfilled, the third layer of human needs is social. This psychological aspect of Maslow’s hierarchy involves emotionally-based relationships in general, such as:

• Friendship
• Intimacy
• Having a supportive and communicative family

Humans need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance, whether it comes from a large social group, such as clubs, office culture, religious groups, professional organizations, sports teams, gangs (“Safety in numbers”), or small social connections (family members, intimate partners, mentors, close colleagues, confidants). They need to love and be loved (sexually and non-sexually) by others. In the absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression. This need for belonging can often overcome the physiological and security needs, depending on the strength of the peer pressure; an anorexic, for example, may ignore the need to eat and
the security of health for a feeling of control and belonging.

Esteem

All humans have a need to be respected, to have self-esteem, self-respect. Also known as the belonging need, esteem presents the normal human desire to be accepted and valued by others. People need to engage themselves to gain recognition and have an activity or
activities that give the person a sense of contribution, to feel accepted and self-valued, be it in a profession or hobby. Imbalances at this level can result in low self-esteem or an inferiority complex. People with low self-esteem need respect from others. They may seek fame or glory, which again depends on others. It may be noted, however, that many people with low self-esteem will not be able to improve their view of themselves simply by
receiving fame, respect, and glory externally, but must first accept themselves
internally. Psychological imbalances such as depression can also prevent one
from obtaining self-esteem on both levels.

Self Actualization. The motivation to realize one’s own maximum potential and
possibilities is considered to be the master motive or the only real motive,
all other motives being its various forms. In Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the
need for self-actualization is the final need that manifests when lower level
needs have been satisfied.

After studying Maslow Hierarchy of Needs and comparing them with the list of five customer wants (Product, Quality, Personalized Service, On Time Delivery, and Value) we found a match in priorities.

Our next step was to identify in simple language what management wants from its employees and how to get it. Thefirst part was simple and we were able to identify five things management wanted from its employees at every level. (Work, Efficiency, Loyalty,
Production, and Profit).

Next came the hard part, how to get it implemented. How do you get the employee to give you what you want?

More research and study took us to other motivation theories and we found that we could get anyone to do anything we wanted, that was the good news! The bad news was that it cost, it cost in time and effort. And of course, it would be easy to avoid putting in the time
and effort and offer various rationalizations not to behave in a way that would produce the results we were after. However, we pursued and it worked. It not only worked back in 1972 but has worked wherever I have introduced this model to various companies for the past 37 years.

I call the model, CARES because it represents an acronym for each of the hot buttons that must be pushed to get an employee to behave in the way you want.

It also a subtle hint to management as to what it must do, take care of the employee wants, in order to get what management wants from the employee in order to satisfy the customer! 

Personal Productivity

If you have been working for quite some time in an office but no one is noticing your work then, you may start to think that you are not giving your 100 percent and you will start spending more time in your office without realizing that spending time in your office will not work for you.

This is not about the amount of time you spend in office, it is always about amount of time, that you spend in doing actual work. If you have not heard about personal productivity before then, you must be wondering that what actually personal productivity is.

Well there is no hard and fast definition available for personal productivity but you can define it in your own ways because it all depends upon your personal circumstances.

Learning is a life time process – Learning never ends and this is a universal truth. No matter, where you work and what you work but you will constantly need to learn new and innovative things. If you are doing an office job then, there can be different software tools which can help you to boost your work. You can learn from your senior colleagues, you can learn from your overall organizational culture and so on. There are endless possibilities of learning because there is a lesson available to learn in almost everything. I have seen people who often feel contented with their knowledge which is a wrong gesture to show because if you started to think that you have enough knowledge and you do not need to learn more then, new comers who will have some extra and new skills will beat you in your field. Modesty is another thing that teaches you to be contented but that is also part of our learning process that you should never leave the thirst for learning new things but you also should be very modes in your approach and do not be a show off in your skills.

Achievements often bring declines in people’s lives. This is normal trend but you can change that trend for you because achievement is a thing which you boost your courage and you should excel even more in your field. This also has direct connection with your learning skills because when you feel contented after achievement and stop learning then, you will face a decline right after that achievement. You should not decrease the hard work after some achievements and keep learning as much as you can to make that achievement more concrete and to get more achievements like that in future.

Organizing yourself personally is part of personal productivity Organizational skills also play an important role in making yourself more and more productive. The best example of anyone’s organizing skills is his or her working desk. If you see too much hassle on the table then, you will get an idea that person is not properly organized and he or she needs to work on their organizational skills. There are special courses and lectures being delivered upon personal organization because you can increase your throughput by making you more organized and disciplined. Your personal organization shows and depicts your thoughts that how composed and how focused you are. If you are personally organized and well-disciplined then, people will get a very good idea about you and will take you as a successful and realistic man.

If you want to define personal organization then, you can define it like this “Personal organization is planning your things and making these things to work when they are most needed.”

Most important thing in personal organization is to develop a concrete and solid system to implement but the hardest part is to act on that system because it often happens that you can make your rules and a proper system for making yourself more organized but after a while, you forget about those rules and your life comes back on same unorganized routine.

This practice should be avoided and you should try and make things count. You need to have two things if you want to organize yourself, which are a goal and a plan, but just having them is not enough. You need to follow these things and organize your deeds accordingly.

Time management is important pillar of personal organization You can think of time management as the ultimate management of your life. Time never stops and it keeps on flowing. All you can do is to utilize that flowing time effectively.

Have you ever thought of such questions as where you will be after 5-7 year in life? Where you want to take your career? Do you prefer to watch 3 hours of television in a day or you will prefer to work for 10 hours a day? All of these questions are not very hard to answer but if you are finding them difficult to answer then, you have some serious issues of time management.
