How if you become a…And WHAT will you do?

Nobody Is Right All the time

Posted by psydetect on February 15, 2007

Realize that it is not required that a man be  100% right at all times. No baseball batter has ever had a 1000 average. if he is right three times out of ten he is considered good. The great Babe Ruth, who holds the record for the most home runs, also holds the record for the most strike-outs. It is in the nature of things that we progress by acting, making mistakes, and correcting course. A guided Torpedo literally arrives at its target by making a series of mistakes and continually correcting its course. You cannot correct your course if you are standing still. You cannot change of correct “nothing.” You must consider the known facts in a situation, imagine possible consequences of various courses of action, choose one that seems to offer the best solution- and bet on it. You can correct course as you go.

Another help in overcoming uncertainty is to realize the role that self-esteem, and the protection of self-esteem, play in indecisiveness. Many people are indecisive because they fear loss of self-esteem if they are proved wrong. Use self-esteem of yourself, instead of against yourself, by convincing yourself of this truth: Big men and big personalities make mistakes and admit them. It is the little man who is afraid to admit he has been wrong.

“No man ever became great of good except through many and great mistakes,” said Gladstone. “I have learned more from my mistakes than my successes,”said Sir Humprey Davy. “We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success; we often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never mad a discovery.”-Samuel Smiles. “Mr. Edison worked endlessly on a problem, using the method of elimination. If a person asked proved unavailing, he would say, ‘No, I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another stepward,’ ” _Mr. Thomas A. Edison.

5 Ways of How to Use 30mins. to have Mental Pictures to Relax

Posted by psydetect on February 12, 2007

1. Seat yourself comfortably in an easy chair or lie down on your back. Consciously “let go” the various musles groups as much as possible without making too much of an effort of it. Just consciously pay attention to the various parts of your body and let go a little. You will find that you can always voluntarily relax to a certain degree. You can stop frowning and let your forehead relax. You can ease up a little on the tension in your jaws. You can let your hands, your arms, your shoulders, legs, become a little more relaxed than they are. Spend about five minutes on this and then stop paying any attention to your muscles. This is as far as you are going to try to go by conscious control. From here on out you will relax more and more by using your creative mechanism to automatically bring about a relaxed condition. In short, you are going to use “goal pictures,” held in imagination and let your automatic mechanism realized those goals for you.

2. In you mind’s eye see yourself lying stretched out upon the bed. Form a picture of your legs as they would look if made of concrete. See yourself lying there with two very heavy concrete legs. See these very heavy concrete legs sinking far down into the mattress from their sheer weight. Now picture your arms and hands as made of concrete. They also are very heavy and are shinking down into the bed and exerting tremendous pressure against the bed. In your mind’s eye see a friend come into the room and attempt to lift your heavy concrete legs. He takes hold of your feet and attempts to lift them. But they are too heavy for him. He cannot do it. Repeat with arms, neck, etc.

3. Your body is a big marionette doll. Your hands are tied loosely to your wrist by strings. Your forearm is connected loosely by a string to you upper arm. Your upper are is connected very loosely  by a string to your shoulder. Your feet, calves, thighs, are also connected together with a single string. Your neck consists of one very limp string The stings which and stretched to such an extent that your chin has dropped down loosely against your chest. All the various strings which connect the barious parts of your body are loose and limp and your body is just sprawled loosely across the bed.

4. Your body consist of a series of inflated rubber balloons. Two valves open in your feet, and the air begins to escape from your legs. Your legs begin to collapse and continue until they consist only of deflated rubber tubes, lying flat against the bed. Next a valve is opened in your chest and as the air begins to escape, your entire trunk begins to collapse limply against the bed. Continue with arms, head, and neck.

5. Many people will find this the most relaxing of all. Just go back in memory to some relaxing and pleasant scene from your past. There is always some time in every one’s life when he felt relaxed, at ease, and at peace with the world. Pick out your own relaxing picture from your past and call up detailed memory images. Yours may be a peaceful scene at a mountain lake where you went fishing. If so, pay particular attention to the little incidental things in the environment. Remember the quiet ripples on the water. What sounds were present? Did you hear the quiet rustling of the leaves? Maybe you remember sitting perfectly relaxed, and somewhat drowsy before an open fireplace long ago. Did the logs crackle and spark? what other sights and sounds were present? Maybe you choose to remember relaxing in the sun on a beach. How did the sand feel against your body, almost as physical thing? Was there a breeze blowing? Were there gulls on the beach? The more of these incidental details you can remember and picture to yourself, the more successful you will be.

Daily practice will bring these mental pictures, or memories, clearer and clearer. the effect of learning will also be cumulative. Practice will strengthen the tie-in between mental image and physical sensation. You will become more and more proficient in relaxation, and this in itself will be “remembered” in future practice sessions.

The Secret of Creative Thinking and Creative Doing

Posted by psydetect on February 9, 2007

Proof of the fact that what we have been saying is true can be seen in the experiment of writers,  inventors and other creative workers. Invariably, they tell us that creative ideas are not consciously thought out by forebrain thinking, but come automatically, spotaneously, and somewhat like a bolt out of the blue, when the conscious mind has let of the problem and is engaged in thinking of something else. These creative ideas do not come willy-nilly without some preliminary consciousnes thought about the problem. All the evidence point to the conclusion that in order to receive an “inspiration” or a “hunch,” the person must think about it consciously, gather all the information he can on the subject, consider all the possible courses of action, And above all, he must have a burning desire to solve the problem. But, after he has defined the problem. But after he has defined the problem, sees in his imagination the desired end result, secured all the information and facts that he can, then additional struggling, fretting and worrying over it does not help, but seems to hinder the solution.

Ferh, the famous French scientist, said that practically all his good ideas came to him when not actively engage in work on a problem and that most of the discoveries of his contemporaries were made when they were away from their work bench, so to speak.

It is well known that when Thomas A. Edison was stymied by a problem, he would lie down and take a short nap. Charles Darwin, telling how an intuitional flash came to him suddenly, after months of conscious thinking had failed to give him the ideas he needed for The Origin Species, wrote, “I can remember the very spot in the road, whilst in my carriage, when to my joy the solution occurred to me.”

Lenox Riley Lorh, former president of the National Broadcasting Company, once wrote an article telling how ideas which had helped him in business, came to him. “Ideas, I find, come most readily when you are doing something that keeps the mind alert without putting too much strain upon it. Shaving, driving car, sawing a plank, or fishing or hunting, for instance. Or engaging with some friend in stimulating conversation. Some of my best ideas came from information picked up casually and entirely unrelated to my work.” (Anyone Can Be an Idea Man,” the American Magazine, March, 1940.)

C. G. Suits the Chief of Research at General Electric, said that nearly all the discoveries in research labaratories came as hunches during a period of relaxation, following a period of intensive thinking and fact-gathering.

Bertrand Russel said, ” I have found, for example, that, if I have to write upon some rather difficult topic, the best plan is to think about it with very great intensity- the greatest intensity of which I am capable- for a few hours or days, and at the end of that time gives orders, so to speak, that the work is proceed underground. After some months I return consciously to the topic and find that the work has been done. Before I had discovered this technique, I used to spend the interventing months worrying because I was making no progress ; I arrived at the solution none the sooner for his worry, and the intervening months were wasted, whereas now I can devote them to other pursuits,” ( Bertrand Russel, The Conquest of Happiness, New York, Liveright Publishing Corporation.)

We becomes slaves of “What Others Think” Creates inhibitions

Posted by psydetect on February 8, 2007

 I remember when I was first left home 10yrs ago I was painfully self -conscious, especially when eating in the dining room of a “ritzy” or in a high class hotel in Las Vegas. As I walked through the dining room I felt that every eye was upon me, judging me, critizing me or i feel that they are discriminating me(in which some peoples do it frequently, and most especially for those who live in a dream land). I was painfully conscious of every movement i make, motion, and act the way i walked, the way i sat down, my table manners and the way I ate my food. And all these actions seemed stiff and awkward. I asked my self : Why I am so ill at ease?  untill I realize the word “stop” and have a break to my over self-conscious act.

When you become too consciously about “what others think”; when you become too careful to consciously try to please other people; when you become too sensitive to the real or fancied disapproval of other people- then you have excessive negative feedback, inhibition and poor performance.

Whenever you constantly and consciously monitor your every act, word, or manner, again you become inhibited and self-conscious. You become too carefull to make a good impression, and in so doing choke off, restrain inhibit you creative self and end up making a rather poor impression.

You are also “unconsciously” becomes a slaves in some degree if we are so very inhibited and self-conscious. You’re become a prisoner to other people’s perceptions of you. You’re incarcerated by your need for other people’s acceptance. And you’re in prison and you don’t even know it. Being a slave don’t have choices to act freely in a very sponteneous ways, the fact is if you are too consciously aware you are also creating a string attach or a handcuff that makes you being a slave in your own way.

“The way to make good impression on other people is: Never act, or fail to act purely for consciously contrieved effect. Never “wonder” consciously what the other person is thinking of you, how he is judging you.”- Maxwell Maltz M.D  F.I.C.S.

The late Dr. Albert Edward Wiggam, famous educator, psychologist and lecturer, said that in his early years he was so painfully self-conscious he found it all but impossible to recite in school. He avoided other people, and could not talk to them without hanging his head. He constantly fought his self-consciousness and tried hard to overcome it, all to no avail. Then one day he got a new idea. His trouble was not “self-consciousness” at all. It was really excessive “others consciousness.” He was too painfully sensitive to what others might think of everthing he said or did, every move he made. This tied him up in knots -he could not think clearly , and he could think of nothing to say. He did not feel this way when alone with himself. When alone, he was perfectly calm and relaxed, at ease, poised, and he could think of lots of intrersting ideas and things to say. And he was perfectly aware of and at home with his self.

Then he stopped fighting and trying to conquer his “self-consciousness,” and instead concentrated on developing more self- consciousness: feeling, acting, behaving, thinking as he did when he was alone, without any regard to how some other person might feel about or judge him. This total disregard for the opinion and judgement of other people did not result in his becoming callous, arrogant, or entirely insensitive to others. There is no danger of entirely eradicating negative feedback, no matter how hard you may try. But this effort in the opposite direction did tone down his overly sensitive feedback mechanism. He got along better with other people, and went on to make his living counselling people and making public speeches to large groups, “without the slightest defree of self- consciousness.”

What is the Image of your self

Posted by psydetect on February 3, 2007

After reading Avanoo’s article about Lessons on How to Turn Big Failures into Big Successes  I remember the time when i was a F- type student in my high school years. It makes me have a long time to learn on my failures and inferiorities time by time. Let me share with you my learnd experience on how can change your self in a very practical ways.

The new science of self-image psychology made posible an important breakthrough in the field of psychology. I myself take no credit for the breakthrough, other than the recognition of it. The self image is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior. It defines what you can and cannot do. Expand the self image and you expand the “area of the possible.” There is an abundance of scientific evidence which shows that the human brain and nervous system operate purposefully in accordance with the known principles of self image psychology. This was also shows that any breakthrough in science is likely to come outside the system like in Quantum physics and some spiritual texts like kabbalah. According to the famous plastic surgeon in his remarkable discovery :

 . “Experts” are the thoroughly familiar with the developed knowledge inside the prescribed boundaries of a given science. Any new knowledge must usually come from the outside- not by ” experts”, but by what someone has defined as an “Inpert.”-Maxwell Maltz. M.D. F.I.C.S.

Pasteur was not an M.D. The Wright brothers were not aeronautical engineers but bicycle mechanics. Einstein, properly speaking , was not a a physicist but a mathematician. Yet his findings in mathematics completely turned upside down all the pet the theories in physics. Madame Curie was not an M.D but physicist, yet she made important conributions to medical science.

There is an aboundance of scientific evidence which shows that the human brain and nervous system operate purposefully in accordance with the known principles of self-image psychology  to accomplish goals of the individual. Insofar as functions is concerned, the brain and nervous system constitute a marvelous and complex “goal-striving mechanism,” a sort of built in automatic guidance system which works for you as a success mechanism, or against you as “failure mechanisms,” depending on how “YOU” the operator, operate it and the goals you set for it.

Experiencing is the secret. The self image is changed, for the better of worse, not by intellect alone, nor by intellectual knowledge alone, but by “experiencing.” Wittingly or unwittingly you developed your self image by your creative experiencing in the past. You can change it by the method. It is not the child who is taught about love but the child who has expericed love that  grows into a healthy, happy, well-adjusted adult. Our present state of self-confidence and poise is the result of what we have “experienced” rather than what we have learnd intellectually. It also bridges the gap and resolves apparent conflicts between the various therapeutic methods used today. It furnishes a common denominator for direct and indirect counselling, clinical psychology, psychoanalysis, and even auto-suggestion. All in one way or another use creative experiencing to build a better self image. Regardless of theories, this is what really happens, for example, in the “therapeutic situation” employed by the psychoanalytical school: The analyst never criticizes, disapproves, or moralized, is never shocked, as the patient pours out his fears, his shames ,his guilt-feelings and his “bad thoughts.” For perhaps the first time in his life the patient experiences acceptance as a human being: he “feels” that his self has some worth and dignity, and he comes to accept himself, and to conceived of his “self” in new terms and views.-

One of our most precious human gifts is that we are born creators. We’re dreamers. Without that, I don’t hesitate to say we’d really be nothing at all.”

5 Ways to become Clock managers

Posted by psydetect on January 29, 2007

Time management has been discussed many times by countless self-management gurus. And yet we need to keep addressing it for two reasons: we need to keep up with the pace of speed and accuracy if we are to survive the New Economy; and second, time management is different for everyone.

Before I got the hang of the 21st century, I was perpetually off-balanced, harassed and ineffective when I first joined the IT workplace some years ago. I was not uneducated in technology, but the demands of my work (each task perceived equally urgent and as important to the other), the confused organizational structure (this was when multi-tasking also meant encroaching and repeating someone else’s responsibilities), and an overwhelming sense of helplessness fried my nerves. But a couple of years of trial and error, accompanied by a stubborn desire to get it right, opened up some interesting insights.

Yes, multi-tasking, accomplishing a results-oriented performance in the most-effective manner and managing time in today’s workplace is possible. You may have read countless books and hundreds of tips that didn’t work out for you. Let me share some discoveries that may fit your working style:

1. Use technology. Yes you may know how to e-mail, fax, or surf the Internet, but are you maximizing its benefits? These days, working with teams, several employers and going back to school while working are necessary to remain competitive, but might drive people out of their mind. It’s possible with technology.

One hindrance to multi-tasking is falling back into the old habit of doing things the hard way. If you can accomplish stuff without having to leave your computer, do it. Set-up a home office when you can afford it. I know some people who don’t even have computers at home. When emergencies strike or when deadlines pour down like the rain, believe me, the investment is worth it. But don’t let the technology take control of you, either. Use what’s helpful to you, and don’t be pressured into acquiring the latest software versions (except anti-virus programs, which must always be updated) all the time.

2. Practice risk management. I remember a time when I was always doing something at the last minute, haggling for extensions, and being surrounded by new deadlines. I was always in a crisis, and completing one project for me bore no rest, as the shadow of the next would immediately rise. Today, I realize that even in the workplace, prevention is always better than cramming a cure.

Don’t just blindly accept deadlines. Evaluate, negotiate and set everything in a clean schedule. Stack up on production. If you can accomplish things in advance, sacrifice a weekend or two to create advance work. This will buy you precious time when the need arises.

3. Know yourself. Know your strengths and weaknesses and use this to your advantage. We are surrounded by potential time wasters that must be avoided at all cost. It’s essential that you find out which ones you frequently fall into. Procrastination, using precious work hours for answering phone calls, wading through hundreds of junk e-mail, over-analysing a problem, entertaining colleagues who stop by to chat at your cubicle, extended coffee breaks and tardiness can whittle down your productive hours to the bare minimum. Knowing what your pitfalls are is the first step towards a cure.

Start building correct habits. Initiating the change is difficult at first, but only gets easier as your body begins to adapt to a routine. Prioritize by doing first things first, and tackle trivial details in your extra time.

Need incentive to reach a goal? You can help yourself by developing a Pleasure Wish List (PWL). This will encourage you to get things done as quickly as you can.

4. Know the job. If you do things right the first time, you save good time by not having to repeat your work. Thus, assess your situation before taking on a major course of action. Gather facts, and know and understand the nature of the problem. You don’t rush off to production mode the moment you get your orders. If someone tells you to create a website, you don’t just whip out a design on a scratch paper. You find out the specs and potential problems that you need to fix

Once you get your answers, draft out a plan of action. Determine time frame, resources, obstacles, ideas and so on. Take this plan and work it out. Transform the static into dynamic reality. Remember that every step of the way, you need to make wise, and quickly executed decisions, to concretise the plan.

Once you have begun production, break tasks into manageable bits, while prioritizing on importance and need. Work consistently and avoid procrastination, using even idle time to your advantage. You’d be surprised at what you’ll accomplish once you’re done.

5. Learn to relax. Finally, learn to rest. Don’t get the wrong impression that to be able to wrestle with time you need to labor every single working hour of the day. Wrong! One of the best ways to getting quality work effectively is getting sufficient rest. Studies show that people who cram or who are constantly in a state of stress lose their effectiveness in work. You need fresh eyes and a clear mind to be able to get a solid grip in your job. Work on the hours you have designated for yourself, and leave playtime and recreation undefiled. You’ll be amazed how keeping adequate rest time for yourself can do wonders for you.

A Spirit, mind and body that makes us today

Posted by psydetect on January 25, 2007

Do you believed that our world are created by our spirit, mind and body? This is a question that sometimes we ask for ourselves to those who were scrutinizing the events and things around us and for the individual who were imbued in studying sciences and high intellectual knowledges of philosophies and kabbalah. The holy scripture states that we are created at our supreme creator’s  image and likeness (Genesis 1:26, 27.). If we look at the spiritual perspectives and in our scientific deliberation we will realize that we are also a pro-creator of our own world. In fact only a priveledge few know this spiritual truth and universal laws that govern the wholeness of cosmos.

We shall now see Awards winning scientific and spiritual evidence that shall convince you that you are at cause for everything in your world…and that you can change the effect any time.

All the things arounds us are not simply objects lying; they form a network of meanings, in and on and around which man organizes his life. Thus, we speak of the world of a student, of a teacher, of a farmer, a politician. Man is “in” the world not in the same sense as the cow is “in” the field. Both may be in the field but it is man who gives meaning to the field,  the cow, the sky and the plough.   According to some great spiritual sages thousand years ago and from the Nobel price winning Quantum physicists have recently (starting in the
1920s) proven beyond doubt that our physical world is a bundle of a great energy flashes into and out of being in a fraction of a second, minutes and 24/7. They have also proven that thoughts are what put together and hold together this ever-changing energy field into the “objects” that we see.

Our thoughts are connected to the Energy (light) and determine what energy forms  which causes things such as positive thinking, prayer, faith, creativity, goal-setting, disease, and much more in a very scientific and philosopical ways. Our thoughts literally shift the universe on a particle-by-particle basis to create our physical environment and most especially to create and cultivate our own world that depends in our intrest and desires and even in our emotions. Every tangible things that we created in our lives( i.e. cars, buildings, trains, breads, money, artificials etc) are the best product of our idea or shared knowledge and experiences that constitutes us ”  as a rational being” with gifted properties such as spirit, power of reasoning, brilliancy of intelligence, emotions (heart), morality, honor, freedom and some unique attributes or characteristics derive from the All loving God.   

We literally become what we think or imagine most (self-image). And our life becomes what we have believed and “do” most in our life. What you hold in your mind with energy and focus will tend to be created in your reality. It takes a little longer to experience results because we keep changing our minds. Imagine going to a restaurant and ordering chicken soup. But before it arrives you change your order to won ton soup. And before that arrives you change your order back to chicken soup. You’ll sit there and complain, saying “I can never get what I want!”, when in reality you are the reason your soup is late! Most of us do that every day. Our indecision makes manifesting what we want nearly impossible. No wonder you end up feeling that you can’t get what you want. Yet, it doesn’t have to be that way.This notion falls into the category of mind sciences and covers under the umbrella of universal law. Scientifical reasearch shows like Quantum physics and some spiritual sages claims that the world is the mirror of ourselves, they also claim that our world is not the hard and unchangeable thing it may appear to be. Instead, it is a very fluid place continuously built up using our individual and collective thoughts,emotions and even our actions that makes our physical world as a society, family, planet, solar system and the universe.

Man, however, is not a pure subjectivity but a subjectivity incarnating itself, ” in flesh” so to say. What is your body made of? Tissues and organs. What are tissues and organs made of? Cells. What are cells made of? Molecules. What are molecules made of? Atoms. What are atoms made of? Sub- atomic particles. What are subatomic particles made of? Energy? No. They are not made of energy; they are energy. You are one big “chunk” of energy, A chunk of matter that is the lodging place of the spirit. The human body is a subject-body, already a meaning-giving exitence. In other words, human interiority always seeks to embody itself in a body structure or gesture. Embodiment is simply to make incarnate a meaning which comes from the inner core of man.

Energy is the sub-atomic particles that comes together to “make up” atoms, which come together to “make up” matter. Matter is energy. Matter is not converted energy, it is energy. One of the scientific proofs that our body and every matter in this world is a energy that comes from the well known scientist Albert Einstein’s equation, E=mc2? What it means is that any piece of matter of mass m is energy that can be calculated by
multiplying that mass by the speed of light squared (what a large number!). You are literally made up of light, the same stuff light is made of (hence the Bible tell us that light was the 2nd thing to be created). Scientifically speaking, this energy exists as waves spread out over space and time. Only when you exercise observation do these waves become particles localized as a spacetime event, a particle at a particular “time” and “space”.

As we noticed that our observation, our attention to something and our intention, creates space-time-event. This is scientific, even our relationships with other people is governed by the unfailing laws of cause and effect. Great spiritual sages stated that our own world  is made of spirit, mind and body. Each of those three, spirit, mind and body, has a function that is unique to it and not shared with the other. What you see with your eyes and experience with your body is the physical world, which we shall call Body. Body is an effect, created by a cause. This cause is Thought. Body cannot create. It can only experience and be experienced … that is its unique function. Thought cannot experience … it can only make up, create and interpret. It needs a world of relativity (the physical world, Body) to experience itself. Spirit is All That Is, that which gives Life to Thought and Body. Body has no power to create, although it gives the illusion of power to do so. This illusion is the cause of much frustration, as you will soon see.

How if you become a… And WHAT will you do?

Posted by psydetect on January 16, 2007

 Many people around the globe were sometimes asking their selves : “How if i become like this or somebody and WHAT are the capabilities i can do?”
this philosopical question were inevitably asked in our selves privately or sharing this question in our folks as a part of our personal growth. At the very first time we can post here our views and comments to answer this question freely. We have a lot of answers that makes our ideas expressfully in many diffrent ways.

How if i Become a…And WHAT will you do?

Let me have an answers to this question:

Ex. How if i become like a expert blogger?

-“i will create some articles that will encourage peoples to show their ideas of how can we preserve the world in a appropriate way of living.”

Ex. How if i became a good football player?

-“I will try to show in the universe what i can do and offer in this game to makes some football and other sport enthusiast to practice more and love their craft.”

Those examples is a only small part or a tiny pebbles in the universal mind of man. When we learn to scrutinized and deliberate in our childhood years every single moments of our lives we often gropping and searchinng the best  answers to our question such as : “How, If, When” and some general questions that grows and learnd in ourselves. The most special and natural gifts that we have from God is we are bound to answer this question that depends in our learned experience and in the level of our understanding or perceptions. We are gifted to have a “dreams” which makes our own world to fullfill our life’s task and the home page of our subjectivity and objectivity as we are now today. But all of this actions and perceptions are stick into one question as we learn to ask “How if i become a…And WHAT i will do?  

Im inviting somebody and every each of one to post their comments, ideas about what we have discussing here regarding to the title of this one. it will help some people to get great ideas according to what we have posted here that makes encouraging to someone else. I believe that it will make many peoples  inspires about what you have posted and shared.

“We are all begin in the question of How if I become a…And WHAT will you do? as we are now today and tommorow.”
