The Top 200 Secrets of Success and the Pillars of Self-Mastery

Dear friends i am back with new items after a long time. So please read it and provide your valuable reviews.

Today i am going to provide The Top 10 Secrets of Success and the Pillars of Self-Mastery given by the renowned writters "Robin S. Sharma. Who has written the best seller "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari"

  1. Sleep less. This is one of the best investments you can make to make your life more
    productive and rewarding. Most people do not need more than 6 hours to maintain an
    excellent state of health. Try getting up one hour earlier for 21 days and it will develop
    into a powerful habit. Remember, it is the quality not the quantity of sleep that is
    important. And just imagine having an extra 30 hours a month to spend on the things that
    are important to you.
  2. Set aside one hour every morning for personal development matters. Meditate, visualize
    your day, read inspirational texts to set the tone of your day, listen to motivational tapes
    or read great literature. Take this quiet period to vitalize and energize your spirit for the
    productive day ahead. Watch the sun rise once a week or be with nature. Starting the day
    off well is a powerful strategy for self-renewal and personal effectiveness.
  3. Do not allow those things that matter the most in your life be at the mercy of activities
    that matter the least. Every day, take the time to ask yourself the question "is this the best
    use of my time and energy?" Time management is life management so guard your time
    with great care.
  4. Use the rubber band method to condition your mind to focus solely on the most positive
    elements in your life. Place a rubber band around your wrist. Each time a negative,
    energy sapping thought enters your mind, snap the rubber band. Through the power of
    conditioning, your mind will associate pain with negative thinking and you will soon
    possess a strongly positive mindset.
  5. Always answer the phone with enthusiasm in your voice and show your appreciation for
    the caller. Good phone manners are essential. To convey authority on the line, stand up.
    This will instill further confidence in your voice.
  6. Throughout the day we all get inspiration and excellent ideas. Keep a set of cards (the
    size of business cards; available at most stationary stores) in your wallet along with a
    pencil to jot down these insights. When you get home, put the ideas in a central place
    such as a coil notepad and review them from time to time. As noted by Oliver Wendell
    Holmes: "Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original
    dimensions."
  7. Set aside every Sunday evening for yourself and be strongly disciplined with this habit.
    Use this period to plan your week, visualize your encounters and what you want to
    achieve, to read new materials and inspirational books, to listen to soft soothing music
    and to simply relax. This habit will serve as your anchor to keep you focused, motivated
    and effective throughout the coming week.
  8. Always remember the key principle that the quality of your life is the quality of your
    communication. This means the way you communicate with others and, more
    importantly, the way you communicate with yourself. What you focus on is what you get.
    If you look for the positive this is what you get. This is a fundamental law of Nature.
  9. Stay on purpose, not on outcome. In other words, do the task because it is what you love
    to do or because it will help someone or is a valuable exercise. Don't do it for the money
    or the recognition. Those will come naturally. This is the way of the world.
  10. Laugh for five minutes in the mirror each morning. Steve Martin does. Laughter activates
    many beneficial chemicals within the body that place us into a very joyous state.
    Laughter also returns the body to a state of balance. Laughter therapy has been regularly
    used to heal persons with varied ailments and is a wonderful tonic for life's ills. While the
    average 4 year old laughs 500 times a day, the average adult is lucky to laugh 15 times a
    day. Revitalize the habit of laughter, it will put far more living into your life.
