An English philosopher by the name of Sir Francis Bacon once said, “Natural abilities are like natural plants, they need pruning by study. How right he was that without reading up more books or getting more information through the easily accessible internet, you would not gain much knowledge and abilities to excel better in life.

I have the tendency of creating things out from the norm, making me a step more successful than most people. Being creative is surely not an in-born thing as many would have presume as it took me years of reading up and learning through trials and errors to get to that perfection I have instilled within me now. One thing I have learned was to break out of the boundaries that had enclosed my creativity and think out of the box.

I often asked myself. Is that the best I can do for what I’m doing now? Is that the standards I have set for myself or should I have higher aims? Did I manage my time and manpower well to get a task done without any hiccups? Am I working in the right establishment or environment to have the peak in creativity? Am I self motivated? Am I the master or worker to my trade? Do I have goals? Am I getting enough of feedbacks for whatever proposals I have in hand to make the project successful? Have I proven myself to be the cream of the crowd to gain respect? What are the values in my life? These 10 points as I put it as the Ten Commandments of My Life have been circling my head for ages, making me a Thinker all the time to get the best of what I have been doing.

The won’t be any solutions in life if you were not well read to understand the way of life and how to counter them if certain situations were to appear. It may just well be a day old newspapers, magazines, novels or even your old textbooks, there will always be rooms in your head to absorb more knowledge. Everyday is a learning process and you would not be too old to learn up something new. What’s holding you back when a journey of a thousand miles will only need your initiative and motivation to begin with the first step?

It has been said that a person will not stop learning even as he grows old. The statement is so true. No matter how old we are, there will never be any ending to how much knowledge we could gain. It felt as if we have gone back to school and learning to read is the first step in gaining more knowledge. The more you read, the more you know, the more you understand how to apply the skills automatically. By increasing the competency, it will increase the motivation to learn more. When a person sees his own progress, he would want to learn more by reading more books.

There are many types of books around the market ranging from arts, photography, novels, computing, hobbies, motoring, beauty, health, cooking, science fictions, romance, children, parenting, sports, teens to books as basic as textbooks and comics. Which would you choose? As for me, I would choose a bit of everything before deciding which category of books will suit me best.

Cooking books will surely enhance the act of self dependent if ever one were to live independently away from home. Parenting books will surely enlighten you on the basic needs of a child in his process of growing up. Fiction books will eventually develop your imaginative power to be creative in your work. Computing book will let you catch up with the state-of-the art products in the world of technology. Even a comic book will help you relieve your mind after a hard day’s work.

No matter what, reading any books has one thing in common. It improves your skill and strategy use, builds fluency, enlarges vocabulary, and builds your knowledge of the world. There will be no harm in reading more. Any day in your life will be another “back to school” day, regardless how old you are now. Just grab a book now and learn what you might not know. Who knows? It might just change your life forever.

“There is a secret psychology to money. Most people don’t know about it, that’s why most people never become financially successful. A lack of money is not the problem, it is merely a symptom of what’s going on inside you.” – T. Harv Eker

It is undeniable that trying to be rich is what most people will have in their minds all the time but thinking without actions will be useless. Will attending courses, seminars, listening to CDs and reading the hundreds of books available in the market really help a person to achieve his dream? In my opinion, it does help when a person have the motivation to succeed in life but how long will this short blast of energy sustain? Most of the time, he will end up where he had started – Square One.

As T. Harv Eker had stated, “If your subconscious FINANCIAL BLUEPRINT is not SET for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, nothing you do will make much a difference.” Isn’t this statement so true in our lives? Throughout our growing up years, we tried to be successful, just to prove to our parents and others that we can make it. Most of the time, we would encounter more failures and short term successes that we can ever keep track of. No matter how hard we had tried and the long hours we had put into, things just never work out well. Don’t you feel stressful seeing others in the same business soaring successfully while you are in your office “catching flies with a pair of chopsticks”?

It is all in the mind as I had always said. Rich people, middle class and poor people think differently. Rich people would not give up until they had seen their first million, middle class people would just pull through just to make ends meet, whereas poor people would hardly take any actions in improving their lives further. Unless and until the mindset of a person is changed to be successful, nothing will work well. How do I know this? It is because I purchased and read a lot of best selling books on the ways to be successful in life.

You can google on T. Harv Eker and his Millionaire Mind Intensive books and seminars to find out how he has helped thousands of his students and businesses to jump out from their “leaks” in their “toolboxes” to be successful in life.
