Whenever I ask people this question,
“What do you really want in your life?”
They will usually give me answers as follows.
“I want to have more success in my life.”
“I want to have more money.”
“I want to have a better relationship.”
Then I ask them “What will success give you?” “What will money give you?” “What will a good relationship give you?”
They will always come down to one answer – “Feeling Good!”
Yes, “Feeling Good” is the Ultimate Need of any human being. Nothing is as important as feeling good. Therefore, the quality of your life comes down to one thing –your ability to feel good.
Did I say that? Yes, feeling good is an ability. It is like a muscle; the more you use, the stronger it will become. You either use it or lose it. Unfortunately, the majority of people today have forgotten how to use this powerful ability.
Today I will give you some powerful techniques. As long as you use them, they will awaken your ability to feel good. The quality of your life will increase dramatically, you will have a tremendous amount of energy, and live a life of total fulfillment. These techniques are so simple that you won’t believe it. I only ask you to keep a ten-day commitment, use them for ten days, and see how your life will change. After ten days, you decide to keep them or not. I bet you will get addicted to it. Ok, let’s begin.
Technique No 1: Flip Switch
Although we know the importance of feeling good, most of the time in daily life we forget about it. We are so busy dealing with the “important matters” we meet everyday, that we forget the more important matters of “Feeling good, living a stress free life”. At the time we realize this, we are already in a deep state of negativity.
The Solution is to do a “Flip Switch” throughout the day.
What is Flip Switch? Flip Switch is a technique whereby you hold in your mind a positive image, a moment from your past when you felt really good, or just an imagined event that makes you feel good. Hold it for a few seconds. At the moment you do your Flip Switch, it will cancel out all the previous negative emotions.
The key is to do it often. Don’t wait until your negative emotions get big, and dominate you thoughts. Kill the monster when it is little.
Do this exercise throughout the day, and you will see the changes in your life simultaneously. I can’t stress enough how powerful this exercise is, try it out for yourself.
Some people find it is hard to hold a image. My answer to them is, just pretend you see. The importance is not how clearly you see, but how strong you feel.
Technique No 2: Capture Magic Moments
We don’t remember all the things that happen in our lives, but we remember some moments. Unfortunately, most people only remember the unhappy moments, and forget the happy moments. These unhappy memories only make them unhappy, and they don’t even notice.
The purpose of this technique is to help you consciously memorize those magical happy moments so that they will make you happier. It is very simple, keep a magical journal, every night before you go to bed, and recall all the good things that happened in your day. Note down things you enjoyed, things you learned, and most importantly things you have achieved. Every week, record your top achievements during the week, and every month, record your top achievements during the month. You will be amazed at how many things you have achieved, and wonder why you did not notice them before.
Take the 10 day challenge; you will love the positive changes in your life. When you find your ability to feel good increases, you will really live with your true purpose.
Technique No 3: Be grateful for everything
Do you know what the most powerful emotional state that people can have is? Yes, that is gratitude. When you are in the state of gratitude, you are in line with the source energy of the universe. You get to see things clearly. Any obstacles become an opportunity for you.
People feel depressed, or unhappy, most of the time because they focus too much attention onto the problems they have, and forget that they have many wonderful things happening in their lives.
Be grateful for the love you receive from your family, your friends, your colleagues. Thank them in some way. Treat them a meal, buy them a gift, just give them a word of greeting, or just give them a prayer in your heart.
Be grateful to yourself, to your body. Say thanks to your feet for supporting you for such a long time, say thanks to your eyes for letting you see the beauty of this world, say thanks to your ears for giving you the beautiful sounds of the universe. Say thank you to every part of your body.
Thank the universe for all the blessings it gives you, and all the blessings you are receiving.
Be grateful for everything you have now, and you shall receive much more.
Technique No 4: The secret of giving
What you give you shall receive! You can see much evidence that shows you this is absolutely true. The wealthiest men on this planet are always the people who give most. The more they give, the more they receive. Bill Gates is the richest man on earth, because he gives the most. No any other person in history has ever given as much money to the world as Bill Gates does.
You must give the very thing that you want to receive. If you want money, you must give money. If you want love, you must give love. The best way to stay happy and feel loved is to make other people feel happy and loved. Give love to everyone you meet, a simple greeting or a word of compliment will go a long way. At the very moment you show your love to other people, the universal law has already guaranteed you will receive it back, and it will give it back to you in the most amazing way.
A point to note is that you must give out unconditionally; don’t expect return from the person you give to, the universe will orchestrate all the details.
Give love, and you will receive love!
Technique No 5: I am a VIP
Nothing is so important as feeling good. Your outer world is a
direct reflection of your inner world. If you want to experience joyfulness, and richness in your outer world, you have to have a joyful, rich inner world. The only way to have a happy, prosperous life is to experience happiness and prosperity in your inner world. Nothing is more important than this.
Where can you find these wonderful feelings? Who can give you these good experiences? The answer is YOU! You are the creator of anything you experience in your life. Only you can control your own feelings. If you don’t give permission, no one can ever influence any of your feelings. But what I find is that people always give power to their environment, they allow others to control their feelings. They feel bad because some bad things happen in their lives, they feel bad because others have done bad things to them. They blame the world, they blame others as the cause of their bad emotions. What they don’t know is that others will never have any influence over their inner feelings if they don’t allow them to. From this day onwards, take full control of your own feelings, never give control to others. You are 100% responsible for your own feelings. You decide to feel good every moment in life.
No one can make you feel bad if you don’t allow them to. You are in total control of your own feelings, and you decide to feel good. The question is how you are going to feel good. You do this by treating yourself as a VIP, a very important person. Think about what you would do to a VIP. Wouldn’t you do anything to make him or her happy? Wouldn’t you do something good for him or her? Wouldn’t you put him or her as your first priority? From this day onwards, treat yourself as a VIP, do anything to make yourself happy. Treat yourself a meal; buy yourself a gift, give yourself a break from time to time. You deserve this, because you are your own VIP, no one is more important than yourself.
Technique No 6: The power of focus
I am sure you have heard sayings like “What you focus on tends to expand.”, ” What you focus on becomes your reality.”, “You are what you think most of the time.”. Basically they are saying one thing “You become what you focus on.”
We all want a prosperous life, we all want a life of fulfillment, but very few people focus on this. They only focus on what they are worried about, and in the end that is what they get. You will attract the very thing that you focus on. This universal law never fails, it works 100% accurately. If you focus on poverty, you will get it; if you focus on riches, you will get them. If you focus on happiness, you will get it; if you focus on sorrow, you will get it too. This law works perfectly.
The question is what should we consciously do to focus our attention on things we want. We have been taught to focus on the fears and worries for years. The answer is simple. We must use the same way that we used to focus on negative things to focus our attention on the positive things. What do you do when you are focusing on the things you worry about? You probably talk to yourself consciously or unconsciously. Most of the time, your self talk is carried out in a form of Q&A .
Q: “Why do these things happen to me?”
A: “Because I am stupid?”;
Q: “Why am I so stupid?”
A: “Because I am a fool.”
Do you find you have ever had this kind of conversation with yourself? The way to deal with it is to be aware of it, and use the same way to focus your attention on the positive things. Ask yourself empowering questions. Ask questions in such a way that you will always get the answers that make you feel good. No matter how bad the situation is, ask yourself, “What is great about this?”, “What can I learn from this?”
If you continually ask yourself, you will always find something great, and something you can learn. Will that make you feel better? You’d better believe it.
From now on, make a commitment- no matter how bad the situation is, you will always find a question to turn your attention to the positive. You become what you focus on!
Technique No 7: No Competition
Many of our disappointments and bad feelings come from competition, or comparison. We feel bad about ourselves; because we see others are doing better than we do. As long as we focus our attention on our weakness, we will never feel good about ourselves. We feel bad, because others are more handsome or more beautiful than us; we feel bad because others have more money, better cars, better houses than we have; We feel bad because others get promoted, but we don’t; We feel bad just because others are happier than we are. As long as you compare yourself with others, you will always find someone who is better than you. And you will never feel good enough.
Instead of falling into this trap of endless competing, why not free ourselves, and live life in our own way. Instead of focusing on what others are doing better than we do, and feeling bad about ourselves, why not focus on learning from others and improving our own skills? Life is about growing, not about competing. Focus your attention on self-growth, go for the best, and you will finally see the big rewards.
In the Athens 2004 Olympics, the Chinese athlete Liu Xiang won the first gold medal in the 110 meters men’s hurdles competition for China. He has made new Chinese history in the Olympic Games. When he was asked, if the four-time world champion Allen Johnson crashed out in the qualifying heat, whether his own performance would be affected, he said, “Not at all, I just follow my own plan, and perform for the best.” In his mind, he does not care who is running against him, he just does his best.
Forget about competition, go for the best!
Technique No 8: Get in touch with your higher self
Nowadays, we are too busy in our daily activities. We even forget who we really are. We really need to find some time for ourselves; get in touch with our higher self. There are two ways you can do this.
The first is nature. Find yourself some spare time every week, and take a walk in the park, or go to the forest. Listen to the sound of nature, and feel the power of it. See the greenness of this beautiful nature, and enjoy being with it. Feel that you are safe, and you are close to Mother Nature.
The second way you can get in touch with your higher self is through meditation. There is too much misconception about meditation, and people tend to make it really complicated. Meditation is easy to do, and everyone can do it. The simplest way is to just sit quietly, and count your breath. Whenever you attention goes away, bring it back to your breath.
The purpose of meditation is to clear your conscious mind, so that you can get in touch with your subconscious mind. There are some advanced meditation techniques that can manifest your desires fast. I will reveal them to you in my future articles. For the time being, practice this simple meditation, it will give you a lot of benefits.
