My name is Md Raji and I’m the founder of Sur O Sargam and My Solution Consultancy Services. I’ve always been passionate about singing, learning music and motivating myself and others. Now I think I am enough experienced to teach different classes of music including Indian classical and light music. This blog along with my YouTube channel Sur O Sargam will help and encourage those students who eagerly want to learn music but unable to do so due to lack of resources. So let's together enrich our different talents inside us and motivate ourselves to do magical things in the world.

Summary 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

A brief synopsis

An productive individual has learned to make the paradigm change from outside-in to inside-out to sum up the seven habits at a high level. From dependency to freedom to interdependence, they have grown along the growth spectrum. An successful individual has discovered the output balance while still increasing their ability to produce.

The first three habits are self-mastery habits or personal victories. Such practises must come first after which come the second three practises of government victories. The last habit is one that is vital to the first six’s proper functioning and regeneration.

Stephen Covey, the well-known author of the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, was a leading authority, family expert, trainer, organisational strategist, and author who was widely regarded. He is also acknowledged as one of the 25 most prominent Americans in Time Magazine.

“Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.” – Stephen Covey

Habit 1: Be Proactive

“That individual can not say, “I choose otherwise,” until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the decisions I made yesterday.

Covey is redefining some words that we are used to using. You have to neglect, for instance, the dictionary definition of constructive. Plus, how you were taught to attribute this word to your employees cannot be forgotten.

The best way to interpret a paradigm is to first understand the paradigms of human behaviour that are commonly accepted.

1) Ingenetic determinism (you are who you are because of your genes)

2) Mental determinism (your childhood and upbringing shaped your personality)

3) Determinism in the climate (the things around you make you who you are)

The prevalent opinion is that we’re animals at our heart. Therefore a given stimulus forces us to give a particular response. Although this is certainly valid, Covey quotes Victor Frankl, a psychiatrist and Holocaust victim: “Man has the freedom to choose between stimulus and response.” (See Frankl’s book Man’s Quest for Meaning for his storey.) Thus we are affected by stimuli, however we have free will.

The author defines proactivity as exercising your right to choose self-awareness, imagination, conscience, or independent will and the paradigm shift that comes with it. Between stimulus and response, this option normally occurs. This view suggests that when you want to let something make you that way, your unhappiness and lack of success are due. Therefore, our answer, which is constructive, must be chosen. The principle of proactivity by Covey does not reduce the influence of biology, upbringing, and environments. We must however, accept our obligation to form our responses to these variables.

Proactivity is not a posture of hope. Proactivity, instead, means comprehending the reality of a situation.

We all have a “circle of concern,” reflecting all the things we care for, Covey explains. In our circle of interest, we can only affect a small portion of items. Many people waste their time and energy thinking about things they can’t influence, or moaning about them. The more you concentrate on things beyond your power i.e., the less things you can control outside your “circle of influence.” It’ll shrink your circle of power. In addition, you will find that your circle of influence will expand by concentrating only on those items under your power.

Stop talking about “have” (if I only had a better job and start saying “be in order to shift the attention to your circle of influence (I can be more efficient).

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind

Twice, everything is made. As a mental development, you first create something. Then it becomes a tangible creation as a result. Suppose you do not want to monitor your mental inventions consciously. In that case, by implication, your life is being developed. Your life is in essence, influenced by random factors and the desires and agendas of other people.

Starting with the end in mind means, with your beliefs and directions evident, approaching every role you have in life. We will know when we behave in a role that is not in line with our beliefs or is not a product of our constructive nature, since we are self-aware.

The root of your protection (your sense of worth), guidance (your source of direction in life), wisdom (your outlook on life), and strength will be the things at the centre of your life (your capacity to act and accomplish).

Many individuals do not take the time to match their beliefs with their core. They have several alternative centres as a result. People can be spouse-centered, family-centered, centred on wealth, centred on work, centred on pleasure, or self-centered. You probably know someone who is an example of any one of these topics being based around.

All of these centres have enough positive stuff to concentrate on. Covey, however, explains that depending on either of these centres for stability, direction, wisdom, or power is not safe. Instead, we need to have a “principle” core to be a successful individual. Timeless, unchanging ideals should be the cornerstone of our concept core. All these other centres can be put into context by the theory centre.

The personal power of a self-aware, informed, constructive individual, unrestricted by the attitudes, activities, and acts of others or by many of the circumstances and environmental forces that limit other people, is the personal power that comes from principle-centered living.

Writing a personal mission statement is the best way to make sure your life is consistent with your values (and the best way to monitor when you go off-center). From the viewpoint of responsibilities and priorities, Covey recommends approaching your personal mission statement. Who would you like to be, and what would you like to achieve?

For families or organisations, this tenet is the same. The first step in the process of being productive is an authentic mission statement. Importantly, to achieve the correct perspective and to set yourself up for the next habit, you need to put in time and effort.

Habit 3: Put First Things First

The second development, the physical realisation of Habits 1 and 2, is Habit 3. Habits 1 and 2 are better described as “leadership.” You can then start contemplating management after developing these two habits. The heart of habit 3 is management.

Strong leadership means putting first things first and doing what others don’t want to do. You must have a burning “yes” inside of you from Habits 1 and 2. This “yes” should allow you to say “no” to other items that do not agree with your values and objectives.

Four levels of time management are defined by Covey:

1) Checklists and Notes (reducing your cognitive burden in the present)

2) Schedules and books for appointments (looking ahead to arrange your future time better)

3) Regular training using objective-setting and prioritisation. Many people never go beyond this point,

4) Categorization of activities and deliberate emphasis and exclusion of such activities

This fourth level is where we are asked by the author to work. He borrowed Dwight Eisenhower’s instrument for this categorization.

In quadrant II, an efficient time manager invests as much time as possible. Before they become urgent, they do things that are important. They emphasise, for instance, relationship building, long-term planning, and preventive maintenance. The more time you spend on this quadrant, the less time you’re going to have to spend on Quadrant I. In quadrants III and IV, assign or otherwise leave something out.

Most individuals, in fact, spend most of their time in quadrants I and III. They always concentrate on urgent items that may or might not be important. Rarely does this approach help you to be successful. By striving to be more disciplined, most of us strive to get out of this vicious circle. The author suggests, however that the problem probably isn’t that you lack discipline. More likely, it is simply that you have not rooted your goals in your beliefs.

Covey recommends a sequence of four measures to become a Quadrant II self-manager:

1) Functions are identified. Write down a list of positions you wish to perform with time and resources. This could be your place as a person (for which you would devote time for self-improvement). Alternatively, your role as a member of the family could be (spouse, son, mother, etc.). Ultimately, it could be your job at work (roles that relate to your job title)

2) Choosing preferences. For each task that you want to achieve over the next week, write down one or two objectives. Since you have already been through the Habits 1 and 2 phase, these goals should be related to your broader objective and long-term goals.

3) Planning. Take this a step past where most people use scheduling to get things. Therefore, a week at a time, sit down and map out your schedule. Scheduling allows you to match your objectives with the best time to achieve them. For instance, for most individuals, peak productivity is about 2 and 5 hours after waking. One application of this idea may be to schedule 2-5 hours after waking on Saturday to do the most important quadrant II operations that your work would not allow you to do during the week.

4) Adapt regular. At the beginning of each day, take a few minutes to study the schedule you put together and revisit the principles that prompted you to set your objectives for the day. Things do change in real life. Therefore, allowing your schedule to be flexible and adaptable while focusing on your beliefs and goals is important.

Habit 4: Think Win/Win

Some unrealistically positive and welcoming attitude is not outlined by Covey. Instead the author describes win/win thought as a mentality that often finds a third alternative to the option of me or you.” Most individuals live in one of the four alternative paradigms that follow:

1) Win/losing (authoritarian or egotistical)

2) Lose/winning (being a pushover)

3) Lose/lose (when two people communicate with each other)

4) Win the Win (focused solely on the results you get for yourself)

We must establish the three character traits central to the win/win paradigm to avoid these unproductive mindsets:

1) Honesty (Integrity) (the value we place on ourselves)

2) Maturity Maturity (the balance between courage and consideration)

3) Abundance Abundance (which comes from a sense of personal worth and security)

As an emotional bank account, try thinking about your relationships. Through making deposits proactively, you ensure that when the time comes to make a withdrawal, the emotional funds will be there.

Win/win is always difficult, but the existence of a hefty emotional bank account makes it much simpler.

Covey offers the following characteristics in order to better explain what a win/win decision is and how it is structured:

1) Strong recognition of desired outcomes

2) Specified parameters within which those results can be achieved

3) Tools to be used to achieve the findings

4) Transparency by clear performance criteria and times for assessment

5) Implications of the evaluation results

The secret to this chapter is that the system, not the people, is the issue in the most difficult circumstances. Many challenging problems can be overcome by approaching certain issues with the issue of how we can improve the framework and make it work for those concerned.

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”– Stephen Covey

If you want to interact with people effectively and influence them, you must understand them first. It may be common sense, but it contrasts directly with the modus operandi of most people, which should be primarily concerned with being understood.

Again, Covey breaks it down into a step-by-step structure that makes it easier to understand your actions. Here are his four listening levels:

1) Ignore

2) Pretending to be listening

3) Listening attentively

4) Listening empathically

The first three are self-explanatory, but you may not have previously used the word “empathic listening.” By “listening” to their body language, sound, speech, and emotions, empathic listening means knowing the frame of reference of someone else. This is a massive deposit in an emotional bank account.

We prefer to listen from our frame of reference (even though we listen carefully) in addition to empathic listening and have these “autobiographical responses”:

1) Assess (agree or disagree)

2) The sample (ask questions from our frame of reference)

3) Tips (give counsel based on our own experience)

4) Interpreting (explaining the behaviour of people based on our motivations)

Instead of pushing our natural autobiographical responses to each scenario, we should listen empathically. If we do this we can get beyond a transactional, surface-level exchange and have a real impact. Once those needs are met, the needs stop inspiring people. Met the need to be heard, and you can move on to being good. Afterwards the other half of this habit is known.

The Greek ideas of ethos, pathos, and logos are alluded to by Covey. You should concentrate on your character and then your relationships first. Both, however, rely on the reasoning, which, after the first two philosophies, should be followed. In any trade, most individuals want to skip straight to logos. However before understanding how your logic suits the general image of your viewpoint, someone must first understand you emotionally. Via this structure, approach your communication, and you’ll be shocked at how effectively you get your point across.

This habit is powerful because initially knowing, then being understood, is still in the circle of influence. The door for third alternatives, win/win options, is opened when individuals understand each other.

Habit 6: Synergize

Covey does not apply to the type of “synergy” that happens by lowering administration costs when two businesses combine and become stronger together. In addition, he does not apply to joint attempts to do more than you might do alone.

If you have encountered it, Covey explains synergy as something that might be difficult to comprehend. When a group of people enters a simultaneous and cooperative state of flow, one way to explain it is. This is described by Covey as the “peak experience” of group interaction.

You may have sports experience where the squad has just gelled. When this happens, the plays of your team begin to click as though you were travelling as one body. Alternatively, as a musical group, you may have experience in performing. Just imagine the moments when every note was perfect, and the hooks were strong. Finally, you can remember an emergency in which strangers came together with extraordinary coordination to act.

These examples are what the author means-a mutual peak experience-by synergy. As a culmination of the first five habits, this experience can be created. The key here is that this kind of teamwork doesn’t need to be an uncommon experience. In our daily lives, we can build them. Begin to live at a higher level by putting into practise the first five behaviours and incorporating honesty and transparency. You can become more successful than most people can think of becoming in order to work at this level consistently.

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

Mind, both of these are built to be habits. A habit is something which is repeatedly done. Subsequently, before practise, you must take the time to refresh yourself.

Covey advises that you take the time to do something to refresh what he categorises as human nature’s four dimensions:

  1. Intellectual (reading, visualizing, planning, writing)
  2. The Physical (exercise, nutrition, stress management)
  3. Psychological (service, empathy, synergy, intrinsic security)
  4. Spiritual(value clarification, commitment, study, and meditation)

You harm the rest when you neglect any one place. So, stick to these activities for at least one hour every day.

For the benefit of the other six behaviours, an overall balance of these dimensions is important. This practise, if done correctly, can lead to a virtuous cycle of continual personal development.


In order to be effective, the crux of the book is that you must come from a position of authenticity. With each successive habit, you can start with your values and construct. Unfortunately, imitating without producing authenticity is human nature.

You will have grasped the greater meaning and the nuances of his points once you’ve read the book, but it’s still useful to refresh your memory in this way:

  1. Only be proactive. Adopt a responsibility mindset for your actions, responses, and outcomes.
  2. Start in mind with the end. Make sure that your efforts begin with the setting up of your values.
  3. Place the first stuff first. Spend your time on things important, not things that are urgent.
  4. Only think Win-Win. With the view of trying to fix the system, not the person, approach any interaction to find the best solution for everyone concerned.
  1. First to discover, then to be learned. It is important to consider people’s needs, create trust, and communicate your emotions; last, communicate your reasoning.
  2. Synergizing. For an exponentially higher degree of successful and co-operative everyday contact, combine the first five behaviours.
  3. Make the saw sharp. Take the time to preserve your mind, body, feelings, and spirit and to refresh them.

Definite Vision / Clarity / Major Purpose

There is one quality that one must have in order to win, and that is the certainty of intent, the knowledge of what one needs and the burning desire to have it.The Clearness of purpose is key for achieving success and making dreams come true.
Your vision or purpose must be transparent and succinct and should not be vague.
Although it’s fun to daydream about becoming prosperous , you have to know and explain explicitly what you want to get or achieve.
Clarity of intent is crucial to cutting calories, getting a new car or living overseas for any level of success. How do you receive it if you don’t specify what you need to do exactly?
Whenever there is predictability of purpose, you realize what measures to take.
With clarity of purpose, you focus on the target, without loosing time or energy. Clarity of intent is like focusing your target on a bright laser intensity, so you can see it perfectly. 

The first step is to write down your main definite aim, also known as the definite chief goal, in order to accomplish your major goal. This would take no significant ability or experience on your part, and you would see most of the items you set out to do materialise if you were to do what is stated in this article. In the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, this is the core concept. It is quick to become nothing more than wishful thinking about your greatest definite reason. In order to prevent this, this post has adapted the Main Definite Intent definition to ensure that you have a method that can help you see tangible results.

What is the Chief Definite Intention ?

They abhor it when men first come into contact with violence. They become used to it and tolerate it if they stay in touch with crime for a period. They eventually accept it and become affected by it if they stay in touch with it long enough. Any thinking stimuli that is sent to the subconscious mind repeatedly is eventually acknowledged and acted upon by it. Writing down your most definite goal and reading it aloud twice everyday would similarly trigger your subconscious mind and generate a burning desire that you need to accomplish your goals. Many individuals set goals, but few see their targets materialise. This is because, passively taking everything that comes their way, they live their lives. A way to trick the subconscious into having the right mental mechanism to accomplish your objectives is to establish a definite chief target. A very particular statement that has the power to manipulate your subconscious mind is your most definite intention.
In turn, your burning desire will push you to take everyday action that drives you towards achieving your objective.

How to build your definite main purpose?

Follow the steps below to establish your key definite purpose:

1. Determining your particular desire

Determine just what you want to be as concrete as possible. For something vague, you will never have a burning desire. It’s vague to want to be rich, but to want to make a million dollars is clear. It’s ambiguous to want to lose weight, to want a 30 inch waist line is specific.

2. Establish the End Date

Set a date on which you want to acquire or accomplish the thing you want. Being practical is critical. For your purpose or desire to be realistic, the time span should be long enough but short enough for you to find it worth pursuing.

3. Decide the Price

Determine what you’re willing to give in exchange for the thing you want. For the object of your desire, you have to pay a price and you have to pay it in full before you get it. You never get anything for free, and if and when it is necessary, the definite chief target prepares you to pay the price. You need to generate the requisite value in exchange for the money if you want to be a millionaire. If you want to get in shape, you need to do the training you need to adopt a good diet plan. There is a price you have to pay for it no matter what your desire is.

4. Create Imperfect Plan

Make a definite plan that will help you understand this desire and, whether you are ready or not, put this plan into motion immediately. Your strategy doesn’t have to be concrete. There’s just somewhere you need to start, so come up with whatever idea you can think of. Notice that you just need a place to start and work towards it. You may not need an intricate plan that is well thought out. When you begin to have a burning urge, your strategy will grow in your subconscious and you will think of several different ideas at a later date.

5. Compose a Succinct Statement

Write in a succinct statement the outcomes of the above four steps. It must include what you want, what you are going to give, along with the time limit and the strategy with which you expect to obtain this object of your desire, in exchange for your object of desire. When you have written it down along with your name or signature, remember to write down the date. This succinct declaration is your definite main objective or chief target.

6. Reading Your definite main intent

Twice a day once after waking up and once before you go to sleep, read this succinct sentence. See and believe that the object of your desire is waiting to be passed to you when you read this sentence, as and when you offer the service/work you have committed to rendering in exchange for it in step 3. Reading it aloud is meant to condition your subconscious mind by making you continually think about it to create a burning desire.

7. Your Identity Change

Repeat the daily reading of your key specific objective before you begin to take regular daily action that pushes you towards your ultimate goal. Your definite chief target has become part of your identification every day, whether you are doing anything that drives you towards your goal. If you want to do that you can continue to read your key definite goal regular, but when I hit this point, I usually revisit my definite chief goal less often.Without taking steps, a lot of us get stuck in the planning stage. It is important that you put your strategy into motion and through the implementation of your plan, make progress towards your target every day.

8. More than One Major Definite Purpose

It will decrease its power to control your sub-conscious mind by having more than one big definite intent. Plans will alter to obtain the object of your desire, but the object of your desire should not. Ask yourself what fulfils you most to decide the object of your desire and define the object of your desire accordingly. You may have several other purposes, but only one definite main aim.

Method for adding your definite main purpose to your life

We looked at what a definite main function is, how it functions and how one can be created. You would be able to establish your own definite chief objective with this knowledge and use it to achieve your main purpose. However, to see all the advantages, you will need to absorb this into your life effectively. Your key definite aim, without that, would only become something you have written and forgotten about. To integrate this into your life, you need a framework, which we will discuss in this section.
It is highly recommended that you read Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, which is where the idea of the big definite intent first came from. It is not sufficient to establish a definite chief target alone. I would strongly recommend that you continue reading How to Write a Diary, a Keystone Practice that Changes Life. Writing a journal will help you form and conform to your routines and thereby accomplish your objectives. In making your definite chief target a fact, this is important.

Exactly What To Do

Understand exactly what you’re after.
Investigate why you want to achieve your objectives, and by accomplishing it, what you will benefit.
Assure that you’d want your mission to be accomplished.
Read about your main objective and think about it.
See the images of your purpose.
Clearly visualise your goal.
See all of the detailed information in your mind.
Be precise what you’d like to get or accomplish with respect to colour , size, amount, structure, site, etc.
Learn to keep your mind focused on your target.
Delete from your life the distractions.
In your life, show dedication and some self-discipline.

Habit| Pattern creation |Sticking multiple behaviours

Habits offers a validated basis for change-every day, regardless of the goals. In this context I have shared practical strategies that will teach you precisely how to construct healthy habits, break bad habits, and control small behaviours.

If you find it hard to change your habits, you’re not going to have a problem. The problem is your system. Bad habits do not repeat themselves because, only because you have the wrong method of adjustment, you do not want to change. You aren’t up to your goals. You drop to the stage of the computer. Here, to push you to new heights, you will get a validated system.

The matter of discussion is ability to distil complex concepts into simple behaviours that are easy to implement. Here, biology, psychology, and neuroscience is applied to create an easy-to – understand guide to prevent positive habits and evil habits as the most tested hypotheses. Coveted artists, business leaders, life-saving doctors and star comedians who have made use of little science habits to master their crafts and vault to the increased level of their fields on the way to gold medals.

To learn how to:

Make time for new habits (even when life’s insane);

Resolve the loss of motivation and self-control;

Set and optimise success;

When you’re running off, get on track again;

Habits reshapes your perspective about success and outcomes and provides you with the resources and strategy required to produce your habits-be it a championship squad, a company hoping to redefine an industry, or just someone trying to leave, lose weight, minimise stress, or accomplish other goals.

The product of daily habits is progress, not once-in-a-lifetime changes.
You should be much more concerned with your direction of development than with your current performance. A lagging indicator of your behaviours is your observations. Your net worth is a lagging predictor of your financial habits. Your weight is one lagging predictor of your eating habits. Your experience is a lagging predictor of your learning habits. Your clutter is a lagging predictor of your cleaning habits.
You get what you repeat. Time magnifies the margin between success and failure. It will multiply whatever you feed it. Good conduct makes it your ally’s time. Bad behaviours build time for the enemy. Goals are about the performance you want to get. Systems are about mechanisms that contribute to certain results. If you want to guess where you’re going to end up in life, all you have to do is follow the curve of small gains or slight losses, and see how your daily decisions will be multiplied by ten or twenty years down the line.

Breakthrough moments are often the product of many previous actions that build up the capacity required to bring about a drastic shift. If you find yourself struggling to build a new habit or break a poor one, it is not because you have lost the ability to.

The aim of setting objectives is to win the game. In order to continue playing the game, construction systems are intended. Goal-less thinking is true, long-term thinking. It is not about any unique accomplishment. The continual refinement and continuous improvement cycle is about it.

In the end, it is your contribution to the process that will decide your results. Patterns are the combined interest in self-improvement. In the long run, having 1 percent better accounts for a lot every day. Habits are a double-edged sword. They can work for you or against you, which is why knowing the details is crucial. Minor changes sometimes appear to make no difference until you cross a vital threshold. The most successful results of any compounding process are delayed. You’ve got patience to use.
Then forget about setting targets if you want better results. Focus on the strategy instead.

You do not climb to the level of your ambitions. You sink to the extent you have of the systems.

Your pattern decides your identity

We want and want to make the wrong stuff improve.

We are trying in the wrong direction to change our behaviours.

There are three stages of shifting behaviour:

Changes in the observations,

Changes in the strategies,

The change in your identity.

The results are precisely what you earn. Processing is just what you do. Identity has to do with what is believed by you. The emphasis is on what you want to do with habits that are focused on performance. With identity-based habits, the emphasis is on who you want to become. The ultimate source of innate motivation is, when a habit becomes part of your daily routine.

This is a basic procedure with two steps:

Decide which sort of person you wish to be.

Prove it for yourself with small wins.

Ask yourself, “Who is the type of person that will get the result I want?” Focusing on who you want to become is the most effective way to change your behaviours, not on what you want to achieve.

How can good habits be developed?

Whenever you want change in your behaviour, ask yourself:

How do I make this obvious?

How do I find this attractive?

How do I make things simple?

How am I going to find it fulfilling?

A habit is a pattern that has been repeated enough times to become automatic. The ultimate goal of behaviour is to solve the problems of life with as little resources and effort as possible. Any habit can be broken down into a feedback loop that involves four steps:


The cue sends a bit of data to your brain to cause a behaviour. It’s a piece of information predicted by a reward. We spend a great deal of our time researching signs that predict rewards such as money and popularity, power and status, appreciation and acceptance, love and friendship, or a feeling of personal fulfilment. These pursuits, of course, often indirectly improve our chances of survival and reproductive success, which is the deeper reason behind what we do.


Cravings are the second step of the habit forming loop. They are the driving force behind every habit. Without some kind of inspiration and desire, we have no reason to act. An urge to alter your inner state is correlated with any craving


The third stage is response. The response is the real habit that you carry out, which can lead to a thought or an action being made. Whether an answer depends largely on how motivated you are and how much pressure is associated with the activity. If for a particular action there is more physical or mental effort required than you are willing to consider, then you will not do it. Your answer depends on your abilities as well. It sounds simple, but such a habit can grow only if you are able to do it.


Finally, the response produces a reward. Rewards are the end result of any habit. Rewards, by themselves, offer advantages. Next, food and water have the resources that you need to live. More money and gratitude is offered by getting a boost. Getting in shape improves your wellbeing and your dating chances. But the more immediate benefit is that incentives satisfy your need to consume or gain status or gain acceptance. Rewards, at least for a moment, provide contentment and relief from desire.
Second, incentives teach us which acts are worth remembering in the future. Your brain is a reward detector. Your sensory nervous system is actively tracking the actions that satisfy your needs as you go about your life and provide satisfaction. Pleasure and feelings of dissatisfaction are part of the mechanism of input that helps the brain to distinguish useful activity from useless behaviour. Rewards close the feedback loop and end the cycle of behaviours.

New Habit Formation

A fundamental collection of rules that we can use to build healthy behaviours is

Begin with an incredibly small habit

They say things like, “I just need more motivation,” or “I wish I had as much willpower as you do,” while new habits are not formed by most people.

That is an incorrect answer here. Research shows that willpower is like a muscle. It gets tiring when you use it during the day. Another way of thinking about this is that the drive ebbs and flows. It rises and falls.

Resolve this dilemma by choosing a new habit that is clear enough that you don’t need motivation to do it. Instead of starting with 5 km of running per day, start with half a km of running per day. Instead of trying to read the entire book every day, begin by reading one page per day. Keep it quick enough that you’ll get it finished without motivation.

Elevate the habit in very small ways

One percent gains add up surprisingly rapidly. As do one-percent rises.

Rather than attempting to do something spectacular from the beginning, start small and gradually expand. Along the way, your willpower and encouragement will strengthen, making it much easier to stick to your habit for good.

When you build up, break habits into pieces.

If you manage to add one percent a day, you will find yourself rising very quickly within two or three months. It is important to keep each habit logical, so that you can sustain momentum and make the behaviour as easy as possible to accomplish.

Building up to 5kms running? Second, split it into 1-km segments.

An effort to read fifty pages a day? Five sets of 10 are going to be much easier as you make your way there.

Get back on track easily after you break up

High performers make errors, commit mistakes, and get off track, just like everyone else. The difference is that, as soon as possible, they get back on track.

Current research has shown that if you break your habit, regardless of when it occurs, it does not have a measurable impact on your long-term success. Rather than aiming to be perfect, drop the all-or-nothing mentality.

You need not expect to fail, but you should prepare for failure. Take some time to consider what would discourage the habit from happening. What items are there that are likely to get in your way? What are those occasional catastrophes that are likely to drag you off course? How do you intend to work on these issues? Or how, at least, can you quickly bounce back from them and get on track again?

It’s just that you’ve got to be reliable, not impeccable. Focus on developing the persona of someone who would never lose a habit twice.

Be reliable and stick with a speed you can sustain.

Be reliable and stick with a speed you can sustain.

Maybe, learning to be patient is the most valuable skill of all. You will make enormous progress if you are persistent and patient.

If you are gaining weight in the gym, you should probably go slower than you thought. When you add daily sales calls to your business strategy, you should probably start with less than you expect to handle. Patience, that’s it. Do things that benefit you.

New habits should feel straightforward, especially in the beginning. If you stay consistent and keep developing your habit, it will get difficult enough, quick enough.

Numerous behaviours stacking

Stacking a habit is a particular form of exercise. Instead of combining the new habit with a specific period, you merge it with an established habit.

The standard formula for stacking is:

I ‘m going to [NEW HABIT] after / before [CURRENT HABIT].

Examples here are:

I’ll meditate on it for a minute after pouring my coffee each morning.

I will switch to my working clothes immediately after I remove my work shoes.

I’ll mention one thing I’m grateful for, after I sit down for dinner today.

I’ll give a kiss to my partner when I get to bed at night.

How long will it take and how long will it take after I put on my running shoes, I’ll teach my friend or family Member.

You have already developed your current patterns into your brain. It works so well again. Again. For several years, you have improved habits and behaviours. By linking behavior patterns to a cycle that is already formed in your mind you are more likely to embrace new behaviment.

You will begin to create huge batteries together by chaining smaller comportaments if you master this fundamental structure. This allows you to take advantage of a dynamism that leads to another action.

Smart Goal Setting Priorities

Goal-setting is the method of taking active action to obtain the desired result. You may have a dream of being a professor, a cardiologist, or an artist. Each of these desires involves setting and achieving small (and large!) targets. These big milestones can be broken down into smaller, more realistic goals that will elevate you to success.

Implementation of Goal Setting in Distinct Parts of life

1. Health

The larger image is difficult to keep track of with far too much ultra-specific guidance out there on different workout methods and exercise areas. There are various health ambitions for everyone, ranging from wanting to stay healthy in general to seeing health as a lifestyle. We talked to some professional trainers about what some of the most important goals for health should be for just about everyone. These priorities will keep you grounded and force you to look at the big picture in your approach to integrating physical activity into your life.

2. Relations

What do good relationships take for granted? It will vary, but most people will usually acknowledge that all important aspects of a partnership are respect, friendship, mutual trust, sexual expression, protection and, sometimes, child care. You don’t need to waste much time in order to build a successful relationship. Only something you should never recall disrespecting or complaining about possessions.
Give love and gratitude to other people so that others can return the very same to you.

3. Job and Finance

It is about financial independence to take control of your finances. You have a stable cashflow that allows you to live the life that you want. You don’t have to think about how your bills or unexpected expenses are going to be paid. You’re not burdened, even with a mountain of debt.

It’s about realising that you need more cash to pay down debt or perhaps raise your income with a side business. It is all about managing the long-term financial situation by consciously preparing for an uncertain day or retirement.

For students , studying well is their job. They can focus on the number of hours of research, concentrate on their subjects, and many more. Students, too, should make their objectives perfectly clear.


Set all three types of goals: health, relationships and finance, but concentrate on achieving the most important objectives to give you the best chance of success. It is better to set one goal at a time, keeping in mind that if that goal is achieved, all other goals will be accomplished automatically.



Clarity is authority. If you want to meet them, your targets should be crystal clear.

An example of a non-specific objective: I would like to make more money.

Example of a particular goal: I want to make Rs 100,000 by affiliate marketing in profits next year.


A measurable purpose is one that helps you to break down into actionable elements (think process goals) that you are able to track.

An example of an unmeasurable objective: I would like to focus on my book.

An example of a measurable objective: For the next six months, I’d like to write two pages of my book every day.


Is your aim achievable? It is crucial to decide whether you have the time, money , and resources to accomplish this when setting your goals. You can dream, but being realistic is also necessary. By intelligent preparation, something that might seem unlikely right now can be done over time. So for your ambitions, please be realistically positive.

An example of an unattainable objective: I’d like to lose 10 kg by tomorrow. (Well, it’s not really possible, but if you cut off an arm, I think it’s still achievable).

An example of an realistic, but daunting goal: I want to lose 10 kh by working with a trainer by the end of my three months.

The key is that it should both be possible to achieve your goals and allow you to break them down into practical tasks that are actionable.


One that is, well, important to your vision is a relevant target. If it does not contribute in any way to your vision of life, ask yourself if the goal you are setting is really important.

Example of an insignificant objective: I want to start an online company, let ‘s say, so that I can finally leave my nine to five jobs.

An example of a valid objective: by the end of 2019, I want to make Rs100,000 in total revenue so that I can leave my nine to five jobs and be financially free.

Time bound

Every objective requires a deadline. It would be hard to hold yourself accountable on whether you are on track to accomplish it if you don’t set a target date for your objectives.

Remember the essay from college that was due the next night? Yep, deadlines are what cause huge action to be taken by people. So make sure that your priorities are time-bound.

An example of a non-time-bound objective: I want to finish writing this blog post.

An example of a time-bound objective: By tomorrow, I want to finish writing this blog post.


As time goes by, it’s necessary to determine if your priorities are on track. Without meaning them to be, you might have set objectives that are far too ambitious. That’s why it’s important to go back every once in a while to go over the goals you have set for yourself to ensure that you set realistic goals that are daunting, but achievable.


Whenever you reach a goal, smile in the mirror at yourself, go out for a nice meal, recognise yourself for the progress you’ve achieved. This is an vital move missed by many individuals, so make sure you reward yourself for doing good work because it repeats any action that gets rewarded.

Developing Continuous Growth Process

What is a schedule or project timetable for a plan or job?
A project schedule is an outline of a set of objectives and procedures by which a team or person may accomplish these goals and provide the reader with a better understanding of the nature of the project. Job routines, whether used in professional or academic life, help you stay coordinated while working on projects. You dissolve a structure by work plans into small , manageable tasks and identify the things you want to accomplish.

Let’s now understand where the project comes from and how it runs.

Variables that decide a plan’s creation

Imagination to growth process

Process of success

1. Imagination

To imagine is to represent objects without aiming at them as they are presently, presently, and subjectively. One can use imagination to represent possibilities other than the actual, to represent periods other than the current, and to represent experiences other than one’s own. Imagining something, unlike witnessing and believing, does not cause one to assume that something is the case. Interestingly, though, the desire comes from our imagination.

2. Burning Desire

If you just want to accomplish what you want to accomplish with burning ambition or obsession, I don’t see why you can’t achieve your goal. Please make sure that your friends, your loyalty, your resources, your patience, your strategy and your attention are used.

3. The super idea

Creativity is often incorrectly seen as an objective that is a mental disorder that you need to accomplish.

This is where many artists and designers are confused and engage in paralysing self-sabotage. How much do we learn that someone may be “waiting for advice to come to them?” Creativity is not a static activity, but it is a versatile technique that we can appeal to with the right mindset.

How do we build a brilliant idea?

Nearly every person will agree that the super idea of an entity comes from creative ability. But you will grow a great idea if you do a quick and easy task that can be done by you on a regular basis. By the growth of the fixed work, a super idea would be generated automatically.
Let me just explain.
Writing anything is easy, but writing a blog is hard because it requires creativity. But if you keep writing and reading multiple articles every day, then one day you will be a great writer.

4. Planning

Planning is thinking about developing a process before taking action. This encourages us to take a look into the future and decide in advance how to deal with the conditions we will face in the future. There is rational thinking involved and sound decision-making.

Planning is the essential role of deciding what to do in advance, when to do it, how to do it, and who will do it. It is an analytical method that sets out an individual ‘s objectives and defines various courses of action by which the individual can accomplish those objectives. Exactly how to reach a specific target is chalked out.

Start making your own annual, semi-annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and regular schedule during the course of work to execute it.
What is the value of action being taken?
The fact is, while many of us understand a lot of things about earning cash, doing things and bringing about world change, only a remarkable few get to have all the abundance, glory and happiness that this planet has to offer, simply because they are the lucky few who take action reasonably often.

5. Action taking

The one thing that separates the champion from the action is taking action … anti-winners … The haves from the not-haves … And the greatest accomplishments from ordinary people.

Perhaps you’ve already seen somebody make a major success in their lives, just to complain to yourself, I should have done that. Or maybe you’ve watched a new project initiated by a colleague that included your ideas, just to conclude that when they agreed to take action, you were standing by.

6. Outcomes

After achieving a result or outcome, why is emotional stability necessary?
The findings can be favourable or unfavourable. When we get a favourable result, you must not be too excited. Treat a favourable condition as an instance of an event that is normal. But, uh, and, uh,

Fear of failure has different effects on people, but you tend to panic and do things that re-center and shift things to worry about more often than you actually find a solution when it comes to the moment you least expect it to.

Having emotional wellbeing helps you to retain your concentration no matter how overwhelming and complex things can get. It helps you to stay in control, regardless of the complexity of your circumstances, and, most importantly, it allows you to maintain calm enough to help you think and analyse the situation and figure out a solution.

7. Motivation

After the result, why is motivation necessary?
When you are working, you are inherently self-motivated, and the best way to motivate yourself is to start working.
After the score, you stop working momentarily because either you are overly excited or you are saddened by your unfavourable result. It will succeed those who have suffered a long list of defeats. When the outcomes are favourable, you have to be emotionally secure to stay on your winning path and you have to be self-motivated to move again in a new direction when the results are unfavourable. In any case, never connect your thoughts and emotions.

8. Replanning

Types of results

Three types of findings may occur

Beneath the norm

Proceed on your winning path without altering your strategy if the results are outstanding.
Change the method to achieve a better outcome in the next trial if the results are mediocre. If you do the same thing again, the result will be the same.
If your outcome is negative, then adjust the plan entirely.

9. Continuous growth circle

By generating an ongoing process of replanning, intervention, outcome and encouragement, a strong self-development venture is developed.

It is the standard of re-planning, re-motivation and re-action that will result in growth and self-development. You will find and rectify your errors in this continual process. All the gaps that allow you to go towards failure will be filled slowly and slowly. You will become an invincible human. You’ll be able to achieve whatever you want.

Book Summary of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Brief synopsis

The psychological influence of positive thinking is explored by Think and Grow Rich. For our progress, Napoleon Hill delves into the value of our thinking patterns. Napoleon explains how these constructive thinking strategies were paired with a mixture of persistence, education, and supportive colleagues by the most successful people in the past. When we strive to achieve our life goals, we will all fail, but those who are able to keep trying will succeed.

Think and Grow Rich

During the Great Depression in the US, Think and Grow Rich was published. It was highly successful, however. Think and Grow Rich has sold over 100 million copies to date. This makes it one of the top ten best-selling books of all time on self-help. Even now, Think and Grow Rich has been ranked by BusinessWeek as one of the best-selling paperback business books.

Regarding Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was a self-help author from America. The value of following particular values to attain personal and financial success was the subject of each of his books. Napoleon toured the US and the world, giving seminars on personal achievement, as well as writing self-help books.

Achievements include detailed preparation and realistic goals

“Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.” – Napoleon Hill

Knowing what you want to accomplish is the only way to become successful. We can not start our journey towards success without specific objectives. Napoleon Hill therefore advises that by describing their personal goals in as precise terms as possible, individuals begin their journey towards success. If you want to become successful, you can define exactly how much money you want to make at a certain age. In order to achieve this aim, monetary and time-specific targets would allow you to have a clear understanding of how much you will have to spend.

You’ll then want to outline a strategy after defining a target and giving it a timeline. A step-by-step guide to achieving the ultimate target should be integrated into this strategy. Then you need to act once you have this strategy. Start immediately and do not waste a minute.

These tips will help keep you motivated and concentrated on the next objective that you need to work on in order to reach your overall objective.

Desire is the starting point of all progress.

Napoleon states that as long as you hang on to your wishes, you will achieve what you want. This does not mean, however, that you should only desire the result. Simply wishing for money, for instance, will get you nowhere. Instead, by being obsessed about creating effective strategies and achievable targets that will help you with your desired result, you need to want to become wealthy.

Napoleon offers an overview that will help you navigate your path to being rich in a systematic way:

Decide how much money you want to make exactly. This ought to be quite true (even to the final dollar)
Determine what you are prepared to give to gain this sum of cash
Choose a date by which you plan to get all of this cash
Build a comprehensive plan of how this objective can be accomplished and decide what you should do right now.
In a simple declaration, write all of the above in
Finally, be sure to read this sentence aloud twice a day, twice a day.

Efficient individuals trust their skills

“There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief.” – Napoleon Hill

A great quality to have is unwavering confidence. Individuals who have an unwavering confidence, according to Napoleon, are usually those who will do whatever it takes to achieve their objectives. This is because, without self-confidence, you can not achieve success.

Napoleon provides Mahatma Gandhi’s example of promoting the strength of faith and self-confidence. The traditional instruments of influence were not accessible to Gandhi: money and the military. He had an unwavering conviction, instead, that he could lead his country, India, to freedom from the colonial rule of Britain. This conviction allowed him to establish a major influence over his fellow countrymen and then to spark a shift.

Unlike Gandhi, we are no different. We can do something if we can harness an unwavering confidence in ourselves and our capacity to attain our objectives.

In addition to terror, you cannot have confidence.

Napoleon notes that it is difficult for faith to coexist with terror. Therefore, once all fears have been mastered, we can have unwavering confidence in order to become wealthy. Fear divides Napoleon into six subtypes:

The fear of poverty, embodied by indifference, indecision, uncertainty, anxiety, extreme caution, and hesitation.

Self-consciousness, lack of poise, a complex of inferiority, extravagance, lack of effort, and lack of ambition reflect the fear of criticism.

Hypochondria, inadequate exercise, susceptibility, self-coddling, and intemperance embody the fear of ill health.

The fear of someone’s loss of love, embodied by envy, the discovery of flaws, and gambling.

The fear of old age, embodied by slowing down and building a complex of inferiority around the age of 40, apologetically referring to oneself as being old,” and killing off the habits of initiative, creativity and self-reliance.

The fear of death, embodied by dying rather than living, lack of intent, and lack of adequate employment

Under one of these bullet points, all worries collapse. All fearful feelings will never result in major economic fainting acts. We can quickly, however, redirect our minds away from scary thoughts. Therefore by controlling your mind, you can control your destiny and thereby, overcome fear and acquire all your desired riches.

Fear was described by Napoleon as being a state of mind. We should chose not to be controlled by these fears, as we have power over our state of mind.

Our subconscious can influence our actions

Unwavering conviction is not something from which we are all born. Over time, however we will learn to cultivate this faith. As the most efficient way to improve one’s self-confidence, Napoleon defines auto-suggestion. To affect your own actions, auto-suggestion requires thinking specific and purposeful thoughts.

Auto-suggestion deals for constructive aspirations and emotions by fuelling the subconscious. These optimistic messages will improve your self-belief as your subconscious impacts on your reality. Subsequently, you can start accepting that you can accomplish your objectives. Auto-suggestion is the inverse to self-suggestion. It was described by Napoleon as the bridge between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Therefore, you will need to bind feelings to these terms as well as read crucial objectives out loud. You should foster the ability to consume you while reciting affirmations. Only when feelings are connected to thoughts can the subconscious mind instigate intervention.

As much as you can, Napoleon suggests using auto-suggestion. The more often you use auto-suggestion, the more likely you are to achieve success.

Napoleon also suggests the following steps toward becoming wealthy, in addition to the chapter on desire:

Find a quiet spot where it won’t bother you. Repeat the written statement generated from the chapter of desire aloud. Then make sure you imagine getting that money as well,

Repeat this action until you have a good picture of all the money you want to make both morning and night.

Keep these desires visualised until they are committed to your memory.

Knowledge Is Power

“An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.” – Napoleon Hill

Napoleon sees experience as one of the most valuable qualities to achieve your life goals. He does not mean information in the conventional context, however. He urges you to throw out your preconceived notions about how important education is. Being competent is not bound up with the degree you have. Henry Ford is a great example of a person who was loaded with useful knowledge but lacked conventional education.

It doesn’t take too many facts to be effective. Instead the development of the right experience and expertise is more important. It will enable you to significantly grow by integrating experience, expertise, and your personal strengths. We should always be willing to learn more while knowledge is more important. It is quick to believe that we know enough already. Still, those who are truly good are the individuals who as they mature, continue to develop their knowledge and experiences. By seeking new things or going to class, taking special classes, you can easily do this.

In addition, you should always strive to surround yourself with individuals who are both professional and have had a wide variety of experiences. In our professional and friendship groups, we don’t want to be the most eligible person. We want to surround ourselves, instead with individuals who can help us develop new skills and ideas.

Imagination will transform your dreams into reality

Each and every tale of success starts with an idea. Ideas spring from the imagination of people. Our imagination is therefore, like the imaginative factory of our minds. To turn dreams into concepts, we can use our imagination. These thoughts, then can be transformed into reality. It is where all plans are formulated and built within your imagination. The only restriction you face depends on how much of your imagination you create. There are two forms of creativity, according to Hill: synthetic and imaginative.

Creative imagination

What helps us to come up with fresh ideas is this kind of creativity. This form of creativity starts from nothing and creates something unique. Only when your conscious mind is activated by desire can this form of imagination be achieved. It’s a muscle that needs exercise.

Synthetic Imagination-In order to generate new concepts, this form of imagination incorporates old ideas. The developers at Sony, for instance, used the technology from the dictaphones of journalists to create the first portable music player: the Walkman. In this type of imagination, nothing is generated because it fits with the current mental content.

Complementing each other are these two kinds of creativity. For all fortunes, ideas are the starting point, and they are the result of the imagination. Napoleon gives Asa Candler’s example. Asa was the inventor of Coca-Cola, which about 140 years ago was gradually developed from a headache drug. Candler took the recipe from a pharmacist and turned the product into a big success through marketing. Indeed a genuinely wise salesperson would realise that where tangible merchandise can not, concepts can be exchanged. Almost all significant fortunes begin when a person with a great idea encounters a person selling ideas. Ideas are irresistible forces when combined with desire. They are mightier than the minds that have produced them. Therefore you have to listen, nurture, and grow a willingness to see them through.

Understanding your strengths and weaknesses

Knowing your strengths and vulnerabilities is all about self-awareness. We can question them and avoid them from influencing our objectives if we are aware of our weaknesses. Vague objectives, lacking motivation, procrastinating, and lacking determination are some of the most common weaknesses. Once we know which weaknesses we have by our strengths, we can strengthen our abilities or account for these weaknesses.

To fully understand what your strengths and weaknesses are a detailed and frank self-analysis is required. You should set up a checklist of questions to do this. The questions suggested by Napoleon are:

Have I met my target for this year?
Was I polite, courteous and cooperative at all times?
Did I make every decision quickly and firmly?

You can then equate your subjective self-analysis with somebody’s objective assessment of you after answering these questions. Therefore, sit down with someone who understands you well and ask them to respectfully explore your strengths and weaknesses.

Strengthen your good thoughts

By supplying us with power and endurance, our subconscious will influence us positively. It can also, however, negatively shape us by making us cynical. Therefore to recognise our goals and priorities, we must train our subconscious. With positive and constructive feedback, we can do this by feeding our subconscious. Hence, regardless of our present circumstances, we should still adopt an optimistic attitude. By surrounding ourselves with hopeful and encouraging people, we will strengthen this.

Competent People Are Resilient

It is also due to a lack of ambition, if you consider those that struggle. Comparatively, those who are successful are also highly resilient people. Individuals who can make split-second decisions are multimillionaires. Nevertheless, they are also able to endorse these decisions until they are successful. With a pinch of salt, they are not afraid of losing money and taking losses.

Good people, despite the challenges that arise, stick to their original plans. They give their dreams, ultimately, space to blossom into reality. Napoleon does not however, advocate avoiding accurate corrections that have to be made. For instance, you can make this change if an easy price correction is going to have a huge effect. You can make the right adjustments at the right time as long as you have your ultimate objective in mind.

Napoleon provides basic rules that you should abide by to build habits of persistence and stamina in your life:

Produce a particular target that you are profoundly excited about.

Build a highly comprehensive strategy that will help you achieve smaller targets that can help you achieve your particular target.

Do not let your emotions or actions have an effect on negative perceptions.

Establish a strong friendship with a person or community who will help you through a tough time and share your success with you.

For persistence, strength of will is integral. Once you can balance ambition and willpower, then you are likely to accomplish your objectives. How effectively you can persist depends entirely on how much motivation you have to achieve your objective. Napoleon also states that it could be important for your Mastermind community to help you to persevere during tough times.

In order to foster persistence, Napoleon Hill also given an eight-stage approach:

As your ultimate goal, you need to know exactly what you want. This is called a clearness of intent by Napoleon.

Having a sincere passion for your target means that you are fascinated with a monetary fortune being amassed.

You have to trust that your strategy will be pursued and each of your objectives can be accomplished. This is called the self-reliance by Napoleon.

Your plans should be coordinated and detailed, so that when things get tough, they are unambiguous. This is what Napoleon calls the concept of plans.

It is always important to base your plans and the related objectives on facts. This is called Napoleon’s precise information.

When things get difficult, you and those around you, like your mastermind, should inspire you to continue. Working with these people to achieve your objectives is defined by Napoleon Hill as cooperation.

On seeing your plans through to completion, you should always focus your attention. This is what Napoleon calls your willpower.

Persistence is dependent on a good habit being formed. Your everyday acts will become a custom and then become who you are. Thus by making bravery a habit, you can overcome fear quickly.

As a guiding power, The Mastermind

Money accumulation needs you to have control. It is not possible to bring the plans into motion without authority.

Napoleon Hill outlines three ways that power can be accumulated:

Infinite Smartness
Experience acquired
Experiment and research

Your party of masterminds is made up of members who know that you do not. Reasonable information can not be gained alone. By organising it into definite plans, this information can be translated into force. Napoleon explains that through cooperative alliances, every great fortune in history has been created, as a set of minds produces results greater than the sum of the parts.

The Sex Transmutation Mystery

Transmutation refers to the transformation of one energy product into another. Napoleon claims that our most primal and intense drive is sex. It is the most strong force. Sex is such a strong wish that people always place their livelihoods and prestige on the line to participate in it. When you channel this energy into other pursuits, however, sex can be incredibly useful. This will require great willpower, but it will have a positive effect.

Napoleon Hill isn’t suggesting that our sexual drives should be repressed. Instead, when it’s needed, he supports giving this sexual energy an alternative outlet. Using this energy, for instance, to complement your creative abilities.

With Smart People, Surround Yourself

You will need smart people who can help you in order to become effective on a large scale. This partnership was identified by Napoleon as a brain trust. A brain trust is a union of intelligent people with similar minds. The brain trust should have a shared purpose, be prepared to improve their abilities, and have a system of controls to hold each other accountable.

You will need to develop a synergistic effect for brain trust to function. This impact happens when the talents of two individuals interact to achieve a common purpose. The outcomes are higher than the sum of the portions of the brain trust.

At least twice a week, Napoleon suggests meeting these citizens. Plus, with each member in the party, you must preserve harmony. Equally persistent must be the people within your party, and they must be pleased to be led by you.

Clear all Self Doubts of Your Life

Every human being is the subject of doubts about himself and others as well. Are we in the dilemma of choosing what to do or not to do? In Arjuna’s view, the same problem occurred in the land of the Mahabharata in Kurukshetra. Before Lord Krishan, he shared his reluctance to fight with his nearest and beloved ones. And his doubts cleared up through the message of Bhagvad Gita and he stood up again to fight for the right and his victory was assured as his strength and support because of Lord Krishan on his side. During the current pandemic, the future is so unforeseen and full of uncertainties. And again, we must take the blessing and power of Almighty God to guide us with morality and practicality to solve these dilemmas. We can’t win any fight, be it the Mahabharata battle, or the battle of our minds with doubts about ourselves and others. The uncertainty was about winning or losing, or good over bad, at the time of the Mahabharata. At the present moment, life or death is in question.

We are all Arjun (as the soul) with doubts in mind. But we are not fortunate enough to have Lord Krishan on our side in his physical form, but in the form of Bhagvad Gita, we definitely have his divine form to which we can surrender our “I-ness,” suspicions, and all kinds of dilemmas that create suspicion in our minds.

In Bhagvad Gita, it is said, “Whatever happened, happened for the good, whatever happens, happens for the good, and whatever will happen also will happen for the good.” But my mind still wonders why what good is in it? Supposing that if a relationship didn’t succeed, we might assume it was bound to happen and for a cause it happened. Or do we, in our own hands, attempt to act and take care of things? You don’t have to think about the future, it is said, nor should you pay attention to the past. You are in charge of the moment only so live it to the fullest. “You have the right to work, but you don’t have any right over the result” And I think this is Bhagvad Gita’s wisest message.

People run after money in present times of materialism, want a big home, yearn for a luxury car besides securing the children’s future, so basically we are goal-driven. We all do not work because we want or like doing our jobs, but we do it just to think about the outcomes. During our reviews, we all work extra hours or do overtime assuming (result oriented) that our managers would highly score us on our results. This is something we all need to stop, because suffering is inevitable if our goals are not met. Basically, all because of expectations from this materialist and mortal universe, I am feeling this pain. And like Arjun, in our search for light on our dilemmas, we can all benefit from these timeless teachings and grow self-confidence.

Krishan’s first teaching to Arjun clarified that this material world is not true reality. It’s an illusion and we are all the actors who perform our respective roles assigned by our director to us, i.e. God. We experience profound pain when and when we play the temporary roles too seriously and feel detached from the centre of our true strength. And Krishan reminds Arjun that it is a mortal body, but our soul is immortal.

The second teaching reminded Arjun to pursue his dharma as a life purpose. Krishan urges him to be a fighter for justice and the promotion of good over evil. He reminds Arjun to fulfil his dharmic duty to achieve salvation. If you don’t engage in this fight against evil, you’re going to incur sin violating your dharma and your honour. But then my mind wonders, ‘How are we going to know what’s going to happen? (an action for which you are guilty of doing it).

The consequences of mental turbulence and overthinking and not of intervention are self-doubt, concern and anxiety. However if we act, we will either reach our goals and find satisfaction or fail, but we will benefit from the experience. And what I have learned from my experiences to date is that for the sake of some reward or applause, one should never engage in acts but to honestly and genuinely perform our duties.

The Google search engine is full, though not sufficient, of knowledge on different aspects of the necessary wisdom. To become fearless, we have to work without worries , the real and not virtual world of today.

One may rely entirely on the sermons of Gita, my conviction from the holy land of Kurukshetra, to make the search for the solution of doubts complete.

Why Donald Trump Lost the Battle?

Over 70 million votes went to Donald Trump, the second highest number in American history. He has more than a 47% share of his vote nationally, and looks like he’s won 24 states, including his beloved Florida and Texas.

He has an incredible grip on large swaths of this nation, a visceral bond that has brought a near-cult-like devotion to thousands of supporters. His followers read the fine print of his presidency and clicked enthusiastically on the terms and conditions after four years in the White House.

Any evaluation of his political vulnerability in 2020 must also consider his political strength. He was defeated, however, becoming one of only four incumbents not to get another four years in the modern age. He also became the first president in consecutive elections to lose the popular vote.

In 2016, Donald Trump won the presidency partially because he was a standard-busting political outsider who was willing to say what was previously unsayable.

But in 2020, Donald Trump also lost the presidency, partially because he was a norm-busting political outsider who was willing to say what was previously unspeakable.

Though most of Trump’s base could well have voted for him if he had shot somebody on Fifth Avenue, his notorious boast of four years ago, his violent actions put off those who supported him four years ago.

In the suburbs, this was particularly true. In 373 suburban counties, Joe Biden increased the success of Hillary Clinton, helping him claw back Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin’s Rust Belt states and allowing him to gain Georgia and Arizona. With suburban people, Donald Trump has a specific issue.

We again saw what we had seen in the 2018 mid-term election in the 2020 presidential election – more highly educated Republicans, some of whom voted for Trump four years ago willing to give him a chance, felt his presidency was too unpresidential. Although they recognised he would be unorthodox, many considered the manner in which he challenged so many off-putting and sometimes insulting customs and behavioural norms.

By his aggressiveness, they were put off. His invigoration of ethnic tensions. His use of derogatory words to malign people of colour in tweets. His inability to properly denounce, on occasion, white supremacy. His shredding of the conventional allies of America and his admiration for authoritarian strongmen like Vladimir Putin.

His use of a lingua franca made him sound more like a crime lord occasionally, such as when he identified his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, as a rat” who signed a plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

Then there was what critics derided as his creeping authoritarianism, seen in his failure to acknowledge the results following the referendum.

“People are tired,” They want to see normalcy back in this country. They want to see decency. They want to see this hatred stop. They want to see this country united. And that together is going to bring Joe Biden the presidency.”In this country, they want to see normalcy back. They want to see decency. They want to stop this hatred. They want to see this country united. And the presidency will be brought together by Joe Biden.

A political challenge for Trump was that, outside his core Trump base, he struggled to broaden his popularity. He did not try hard to do so either. He won 30 states in 2016 and sometimes ruled as if he were merely the president of a populist, red America. He has made no effort to court blue America, the 20 states that voted for Hillary Clinton, as the most intentionally divisive president of the past 100 years.

Many people, after four stressful years, just wanted a presidency they might have in the background — a White House occupant who might act more conventionally. The infantile name-calling, the ugly words and the ceaseless confrontation had tired of them. They wanted a return to normalcy of some kind.

But the election in 2020 was not a re-run of the election in 2016. He was the incumbent this time, not the revolutionary. He had a record to protect, including his mishandling of an epidemic of coronavirus that had killed more than 230,000 Americans by Election Day. He was not pitted against a hate figure like Hillary Clinton in this period of negative partisanship, where politics is mostly guided by the opposition’s loathing.

The question of why Trump lost the presidency also turns to a question that is more important and arguable – when did he lose the presidency?

It was obvious at the sunset of his first full day that Trump would want to change his presidency more than the presidency would change him.

Was it in the immediate aftermath of his win in 2016 that there were instant misgivings among people who had voted for Trump partly as a protest vote against the Washington political establishment? Many of those voters never expected him to win at all.

It was hard to demonise Joe Biden in the first 24 hours of his presidency, which is partly why the Democratic establishment was so intent on getting him as its presidential candidate. This 77-year-old centrist, who was to claw back white working class voters in the Rust Belt, also undertook the job he was hired to do.

Were there instant misgivings among people who had voted for Trump partly as a protest vote against the Washington political establishment in the immediate aftermath of his win in 2016? Many of those voters never expected that he would win at all. Before he ran about the crowd size and promised to continue using Twitter, he delivered his “American Carnage” inaugural address, which portrayed the country as a near dystopia of shuttered factories, left-behind workers and wealth “ripped” from middle-class homes. It had become clear at the sundown of his first full day in office that Donald Trump would seek to change the presidency more than he had been changed by the presidency.

Was it more cumulative, the effect of so many scandals on the snowball, so many slurs, so much turn-over of personnel, and so much chaos?

Or was it the major crisis that engulfed his presidency as a result of the coronavirus? Trump’s critical political signs were high before the virus arrived on these shores. He survived the impeachment hearings. His approval ratings matched the highest level of 49%. He could boast of a healthy economy and the power of incumbency: the twin factors that typically guarantee a second term for a sitting president. Presidential elections are always based on a single question: is the nation better off now than it was four years ago? It became virtually impossible to make the case after Covid struck, and the economic crisis that ensued.

But it is incorrect to assume that the coronavirus has ultimately doomed the Trump presidency. Sometimes, Presidents emerge stronger from national convulsions. Sometimes, disasters will bring forth excellence. That was true of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose Great Depression rescue of America made him politically unassailable. The initial response of George W Bush to the September 11 attacks also boosted his popularity, and helped him secure a second term. But it was by no means preordained that Donald Trump will be done with Covid. It was his botched handling of the crisis that led to his decline.

Once again, it should be noted that Donald Trump remained politically viable until the end, facing the nation’s greatest public health crisis in more than a hundred years, the largest economic crisis since the 1930s, and also the most intense ethnic turmoil since the late 1960s.

Most of Red America will yearn for his return, and much of the conservative movement he has come to control. For years to come, he will continue to be the dominating figure of the conservative movement. Trumpism might end up having the same transformative impact as Reaganism on American conservatism.

A highly polarising figure will remain the outgoing president, and may run again in 2024. These disunited states have not unexpectedly become united again not least because so many Americans, ranging from loyalty to abject hatred, would harbour such distinct feelings towards Trump.

The nation has definitely not heard or seen the last of its history’s most unorthodox leaders.

Learn and Retain Using Curiosity

There is something in common with most of the breakthrough discoveries and notable inventions throughout history: they are the product of curiosity. Without curiosity, the laws of physics may never have been developed by Sir Isaac Newton, Alexander Fleming possibly would not have discovered penicillin, and pioneering radioactivity studies by Marie Curie would not exist. A fundamental human trait is the impulse to discover new knowledge and experiences and explore novel possibilities. The ability to learn and discover new things, and to find out how they work, is curiosity. The more curious we are about a topic, the easier it is to learn details about that subject.

Curious individuals often ask questions and check their minds for answers. Their minds are involved all the time. Since the mind is like a muscle that through continuous exercise becomes stronger, the mental exercise generated by curiosity makes our mind stronger and stronger.

Our mind expects and anticipates new ideas linked to it while we are curious about something. They will soon be remembered when the ideas arrive. The ideas may move right in front of us without curiosity, and yet we miss them because our mind is not prepared to recognise them.

By being curious, we can see new worlds and possibilities that are not typically available. They are concealed behind the surface of everyday existence, and to look underneath the surface and explore these new worlds and possibilities requires a curious mind.

Andrew, a University of California researcher, recently performed a series of studies to find out just what happens in the brain when our interest is aroused. These experiments showed insights into how memory is influenced by a source of intrinsic motivation – curiosity. The team discovered that there was increased activity in the hippocampus, a brain region that is essential for creating new memories, when curiosity inspired learning.

Curiosity can place the brain in a state that helps it to learn and retain knowledge of any sort, such as a vortex that draws in everything you are driven to learn, as well as everything around it, explains Dr Matthias Gruber, lead author.

We think more deeply and rationally about decisions when our interest is activated, and come up with more imaginative solutions. Experts agree it is very important to promote interest in all ages, from schools to the workplace and to elderly care. It has been shown that knowing or doing something fresh and different makes for a good attitude and satisfaction.

An significant characteristic of a genius is curiosity. I don’t think there’s an intelligent giant we can find who isn’t a curious guy. The physicist and Nobel Laureate Albert Einstein has been widely cited as saying, “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” Curiosity has its own current explanation. Never lose a sacred curiosity

Hard Working Attitude is Worship

Worship is our confidence in work. Many people even claim that without luck, nothing can be done.

Work is important, and one can not accomplish anything without work. If luck is still with you, in addition to work, it definitely adds value. We may also assume that working with luck would have better outcomes. And chance alone does not yield the desired results. There is therefore no alternative to working.

Everyone has to understand the facts, so every person has to work to their full capacity.

Working with a constructive, optimistic, genuine, committed and hard-working attitude would be regarded as worship and lead to achievement. It must be meaningful and meaningful to function in their respective areas.

In order to make the world strong , the above definition and practise must be inculcated in all our working culture.

Peoples are looking forward to embracing the right and healthy working culture in the future.
