Many people want to live a successful life. Not many, however, are willing to pay the price. I have read the stories of many great people, and they all share common characteristics. In particular, there is one principle that I believe they all follow, whether they realize it or not. The principle is this: Choose the hard way Yes, choose the hard way. When given the choice between the easy way and the hard way, great people consistently choose the hard way.

Stress is a state of discomfort, a very intuitive reaction to anxiety; before you know it, it’s written all over your face, oozing from and stiffening your body even as you attempt to hide it and remain nonchalant. The causes and triggers of stress are varied and you never really know when a situation turns stressful. Stress is directly related to pressure, deadlines and achievements. If you fall short of achieving something, you begin to feel the pressure, force yourself to work harder and cause yourself mental stress, simply because you couldn’t meet a deadline.

Everyone is different, so there are no hard and fast rules to motivating him or her to be more productive.

A while back, there was a viral news story here in Indonesia: the father of a famous celebrity was found begging on the street. When the government’s social agency picked him up, he was in terrible condition. He didn’t have any belongings. He didn’t even have a single penny. And he apparently hadn’t taken a shower for days. This became viral because his daughter is a famous celebrity with lots and lots of money. How could this happen? As it turns out, the celebrity’s father and mother divorced years ago when she was just 7 years old. Since then, the father worked odd jobs until one day he could no longer find any more jobs. Not knowing what else to do, he became a beggar. And not being able to pay rent, he just slept wherever he could.

In it he discussed the power of the subconscious in controlling our opinions of ourselves. He recounted many stories of people who came to him for plastic surgery of all varieties – some with ugly noses; some who had been disfigured in an accident; some who wanted to reverse the effects of aging. Some patients were thrilled with the results. Others, even though the results were wonderful, continued to see themselves as ugly. He finally realized that these negative people had programmed their subconscious minds that they were ugly, and that was still their dominant thought. The book is a great read with some very practical advice about how to fix that negativity that is seated with the subconscious.
