Mental obsessions have physical manifestations: Your body reacts to the thoughts and concerns of the mind. Your thoughts can make you sick or release endorphins (over fifty times more potent than morphine) which causes elation and good health. An emotionally upset individual is more prone to accidents and ill health than an emotionally stable individual.
How can we make sure we won’t become victims of our anxieties? Since the mind tells the body how to act, think the highest, most uplifting thoughts you can imagine. Here are some tips to help you use the power of your mind:
- Visualize positive situations.
- Think and speak well of your health.
- Use your power of visualization.
- Use positive self-talk on a daily basis.
- Don’t dwell on ailments or they will make a habit of recurring.
- Do some type of exercise, anything which promotes cardiovascular activity.
- Regular exercise can add ten years of healthy living to a person’s life.
- Set goals and use enthusiasm to reach them.
Persistence and determination together are omnipotent. You never fail unless you quit. Successful individuals have clearly defined game plans which they review constantly. They know where they are going every day, every month, and every year. Things just don’t happen in their lives: they make them happen. Don’t let anything stand in your way. Your level of persistence in the face of adversity and disappointment will be a measure of belief in yourself. Associate with people who share your goals and work habits. You must follow the leaders who are the best at what they do.
Probably the hardest thing is getting started in the right direction. Starting a sales career is like flying a plane. To get off the ground, you must have full throttle. But, you can’t keep it at that speed or the engine will burn out. When the plane reaches cruising altitudes, you pull back a little bit and this is the way our sales careers are. To a certain point, you have to put on full throttle to take off and get to the heights where you cruise for a while.
Once you have achieved a certain level of success, you can reward yourself with more time for your enjoyment.
