Power of Self Talk

Life is like a big swing, dangling between the depths of happiness and sadness. As soon as we descend down the slope of sadness, we accelerate over the ever-feel-good acclivity of happiness. At times of distress, when we are down we slip over an abyss of emotional trauma and frustrations. One who can rise above the occasion, is the architect of many wins over sorrows.

To come above tougher times you have to pep yourself up, when you are feeling low, lost and confused. This can be done effectively by self-talk. Self-talk is a way of talking to oneself. It can be effectively used for soul searching. When talking to ourselves, we hardly lie as our conscience controls our speech. Self talk is efficient because when we are vocal about our thoughts, it makes a larger impact on our mind.

Our brain then receives the same message from the mind as well as the ears. This repetition pep talks and thoughts fine tunes the performance of brain.

Self-talk is a software, which when properly loaded onto our mind directs ourselves for better results and a healthy mind. Actually many times in our life, we find others advising us to do better in studies, sports, life etc. We usually get bugged by these people and blank our ears out of their constructive suggestions. It is because it doesnt come from within us. And when something comes from within you, you always try your best to do justice to it. Self-talk can thus ameliorate our status.Each one of us has some good points and some bad ones.

Though we hardly admit in pubic, we know in our mind that we could do better in some areas of our personal landscape. This get better attitude can be converted into a practical reality using self-talk.

If you are an introvert and you want to be the gregarious person like you friend next door, all you need to do is talk to yourself. Tell yourself with all the sincerity and emotions that"I can be like him. I am a natural born speaker. I do like people and speaking comes naturally to me. I just have to be ready to listen and speak". Suppose you love a person and want to tell him or her, then just say to yourselves"I love her with all my heart. She is the only one and I know it. If I dont let her know, it would be grave injustice on my part.

Every person loves to be loved. Even she will". These are just some examples I have explained. Its up to you to program your own mantra. If you are highly optimistic to do better, there is no better motivator than self-talk. So guys start talking.






Extend the Miracle

My skills, my mind, my heart, and my body will stagnate, rot, and die lest I put them to good use. I have unlimited potential. Only a small portion of my brain do I employ; only a paltry amount of my muscles do I flex. A hundredfold or more can I increase my accomplishments of yesterday and this I will do, beginning today.

Nevermore will I be satisfied with yesterdays accomplishments nor will I indulge, anymore, in self-praise for deeds which in reality are too small to even acknowledge. I can accomplish far more than I have, and I will, for why should the miracle which produced me end with my birth? Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today?

And I am not on this earth by chance. I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.

I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.






We’re Just Beginning

“We are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book whose pages are infinite…”

I do not know who wrote those words, but I have always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want to make it. We can take the mysterious, hazy future and carve out of it anything that we can imagine, just as a sculptor carves a statue from a shapeless stone.

We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.

I want the future to be better than the past. I don’t want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors with which history is filled. We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we will spend the remainder of our lives.

The past is gone and static. Nothing we can do will change it. The future is before us and dynamic. Everything we do will affect it. Each day brings with it new frontiers, in our homes and in our business, if we only recognize them. We are just at the beginning of the progress in every field of human endeavor.







You are Absolutely Unique

Enjoy that uniquenesss1. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You do not have to lie to hide the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else.

You were meant to be different. Nowhere, in all of history, will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.

If you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap2 in history, and something missing from the plan for humankind. Treasure your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!

No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort others with your kind of comfort. No one can bring your kind of understanding to another person. No one can be cheerful and light-hearted3 and joyous4 in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.

Share your uniqueness. Let it flow out freely among your family and friends, and the people you meet in the rush and clutter of living, wherever you are. That gift of yourself was given to you to enjoy and share. Give yourself away!

See it! Receive it!

Let it inform you, move you and inspire you!

You are unique!












it is a matter of course that industry will bring us success, wealth and good luck. i am sure that a hard-working person can always succeed in the work which he wants to do. this is unchangeable truth. idleness is the opposite of industry. it is the source of all evil. an idle man only enjoys playing and making pleasures. that he is doomed to failure is of no doubt. we should not follow his example.



The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said,"This is for you, Daddy.”

The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating,"Dont you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried,"Oh, Daddy, its not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. Theyre all for you, Daddy."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness. Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years and, whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.





As for me, I have a special emotion to autumn. Autumn always gives me a kind of feeling which can make me forget sorrow. Every time when autumn comes, I am always glad to feel the beautiful season. I can enjoy myself in this great season.


I like the wind of autumn. It is cool and comfortable. When the wind kisses my face, I will close my eyes and smile. I know that wind brings me the breath of autumn. She lets me understand that autumn is full of happiness. I can smell and taste autumn everywhere. The view of the autumn will give me a huge enjoyment. As for me, the wind in autumn is the best present. I am deeply attracted by the autumn wind. This taste of autumn is delicious.


I also love autumn colors. The leaves will turn yellow in autumn. This kind of yellow represents hope and maturity. When I see these yellow leaves, I will think that they still enter into the soil and will give the tree adequate nutrition. Thus, they never leave the tree. I am moved by this sentiment. This phenomenon gives me many thoughts about human society. I believe that our society will have a better development if we realize that we should have a grateful heart. Autumn colors are so magical for me. They let me have bigger imagination space to think over life. I know this taste of autumn is sweet.


I really appreciate autumn quality. In my eyes, autumn is just a mature person. And her love requires no return. In this season, when I walk on the way, I can feel her sincerity and her firmness. Although she can't speak one word, I can learn something from her. This taste of autumn is pregnant and attractive.


Autumn is my favorite season and I will go on to feel autumn. Autumn also makes me have a deeper understanding of cherishing everything that I have now.



If we get married, I firmly believe I'll

live a hard life, I can never

live happily with you, I'll devote myself

but not

to you. No one else is more

harsh and selfish and least

solicitous and considerate than you.

I sincerely want to let you know

what I said is true. Please do me a favor by

ending our relations and refrain from

writing me a reply. Your letter is always full of

things which displease me. You have no

sincere care for me. So long! Please believe

I don't love you any longer. Don't think

I still have a love of you!

Having read the letter, the father felt relieved and gave it to his daughter with a light heart.

The girl also felt quite pleased after she read it carefully, her lad still had a deep love for her.

Do you know why? In fact, she felt very sad when she read the letter for the first time. But she read it for a few more times and, at last, she found the key.


Life comes from life. The universe is a living thing made by love and of love. The earth too as part of the universe is a living thing made of love. We experience her love in the abundance of support she provides us such as the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. And we recognize the divinity of her unconditional love and so call her mother earth or some of us refer to her as goddess. We must recognize as well that we too spring from universal love and as such carry a spark of the divine within each and everyone of us.

Ladies and gentleman,

We are here today to witness and celebrate a passage of life, a passage of love, which Ariele and Martin have chosen to enter upon. They have decided to become more than just lovers, but a family. Moving from onstage of life to another. You have been invited to be physical representatives of the divine and give your support to their union, so as to help make their new path a joyous one, one that is walked upon with wonder and ease. For truly, whether we recognize it or not, we are all family all of the time. Therefore we deeply thank you for your presence as we thank the goddess herself for being with us always.

This celebration is not and end, but a beginning, the start of a new process. From my experience it is not the marriage ceremony nor the marriage that is important, but the love and friendship that you share. Those will ensure a longer lasting relationship than any ritual.

With all my heart I bless you and trust that all will go well in your new life together. My love goes with you, as I am sure everyone else's love in this place goes with you as sell. Goddess be with you. Blessed be.


















究竟是什么任务,我们面临的?在全球一级,显然是自9/ 11恐怖主义问题的立场,指出,随着大主题,如维持和平,国际贸易,能源供应,环境保护和人权等。在所有这些多来,欧洲必须成为一个有效的球员在世界舞台上与一个强大和显着的合作伙伴为美国。

为此,英国是-把它很简单-不可或缺的。英国有很特殊的历史和政治经验,一个健康的怀疑和一个有用的本能和务实的解决办法。我们认为,英国必须是一个不可分割的一部分,一个成功的欧洲,并设法以确保它涉及到各个领域。这并不容易。很多时候,一个健康的怀疑态度,是等同于euroscepticism。对我 euroscepticism是一个矛盾的本身,因为英国是欧洲的一部分,体现了一些比较好的欧洲素质。其中一个关键问题,为英国政府是否能够比较好地部署自己的政治份量之内还是在边缘的欧盟。



这些,女士们,先生们,是不是我自己的语句。他们实际上是结论的纽菲尔德语言调查, 2000年的主持下,主席先生trevor麦克唐纳爵士约翰博伊德。这是一个令人遗憾的事实,多年来,经过强烈的时期,在20世纪80年代,主要的外国语言,法语和德语,一直在持续的,有时是急剧下降,英国中小学和大学。

英国面临的重大任务已经改变了这个趋势。它绝对是在这个国家的人的利益,英国的年轻人,在现在和未来,要胜任外语。 2002年1月,英国上议院辩论的价值,外语学习。所有发言者一致认为,在全球经济一体化的特色,与国际间的联系和不同文化间的联系,语言技能和国际经验是至关重要的就业和职业生涯。国际技能应该有一个重要组成部分,在每一个年轻的学校课程。


然而,就在几天前,政府自己的中期报告(语文趋势, 2003年,由cilt)指出,继续有显着的下降,在外语教学中。大概是最主要的原因在这一刻,是结束强制语言学习之间的年龄14至16岁,已经有严重的影响。在这个问题上-无论是语言教学应是强制性的教学-其实可能是最大的文化差异外语教学在这里和德国。在德国,外语都是强制性的,从第一学年。在英国,语言学习,似乎更在自愿的基础上,并优先考虑的是其他课程的要求。不过,这是英国政府的做法,是在为许多批评,其中包括在英国自己。








一种新的语言,打开了一个全新的文化。一门外语,使我们进入另一种文化,与我们的生活就一定能出现一个新的层面。德国伟大诗人歌德说, 1827:"谁是不熟悉的外语,不知情的他自己的"。看到这样的,学习一种语言,几乎可以媲美航程发现-如果我们记住伟大的探险家和十八世纪的绅士大旅游,你几乎可以说它是英国的发明。



通过学习一种新语言,你会获得新的视野,但在同一时间,你强化自己的身份,也是你的自信心。一门外语,可以有助于建立一个强大的人格力量。显然外语更是必备的素质的情人。在莎士比亚的伟大的喜剧"第十二夜",我们听到的一个绅士,被称赞:他扮演强奸德- gamboys,操3或4种语言,并撇下所有的好礼品的性质。







请允许我回答最后一个问题:这其实是最重要的语言为英国年轻人学习吗?经过长期慎重的考虑,我已经到了必须绝对诚实和客观的结论,即它必须是德语( vorsicht ironie!)

我知道几乎所有的,你讲几句德语。 vorsprung durch technik,幼儿园, oktoberfest等。我宁可不要提那些话,从某个时期我国历史上有一些人在这里似乎从来找不到足够的。但真正认真充分的理由学习德语。




如果你知道德国,你有机会到一个伟大的欧洲文化,在原来的。德国是语言的歌德,莫扎特,巴赫和贝多芬,和托马斯曼和君特格拉斯-而且也是舒马赫和的电影"再见,列宁",其中在过去的几个月里一直是最成功的非英语语言电影。全国每年有60000名新的出版物在德国图书市场-这就是有1 8%的所有书籍出版,每年在世界上。这使德国居世界第三位的图书生产者。












一:Love Is Not Like Merchandise

A reader in Florida, apparently bruised by some personal experience, writes in to complain,"If I steal a nickel's worth of merchandise, I am a thief and punished; but if I steal the love of another's wife, I am free."

This is a prevalent misconception in many people's minds---that love, like merchandise, can be"stolen". Numerous states, in fact, have enacted laws allowing damages for"alienation of affections".

But love is not a commodity; the real thing cannot be bought, sold, traded or stolen. It is an act of the will, a turning of the emotions, a change in the climate of the personality.

When a husband or wife is"stolen" by another person, that husband or wife was already ripe for the stealing, was already predisposed toward a new partner. The"love bandit" was only taking what was waiting to be taken, what wanted to be taken.

We tend to treat persons like goods. We even speak of the children"belonging" to their parents. But nobody"belongs" to anyone else. Each person belongs to himself, and to God. Children are entrusted to their parents, and if their parents do not treat them properly, the state has a right to remove them from their parents' trusteeship.

Most of us, when young, had the experience of a sweetheart being taken from us by somebody more attractive and more appealing. At the time, we may have resented this intruder---but as we grew older, we recognized that the sweetheart had never been ours to begin with. It was not the intruder that"caused" the break, but the lack of a real relationship.

On the surface, many marriages seem to break up because of a"third party". This is, however, a psychological illusion. The other woman or the other man merely serves as a pretext for dissolving a marriage that had already lost its essential integrity.

Nothing is more futile and more self-defeating than the bitterness of spurned love, the vengeful feeling that someone else has"come between" oneself and a beloved. This is always a distortion of reality, for people are not the captives or victims of others---they are free agents, working out their own destinies for good or for ill.

But the rejected lover or mate cannot afford to believe that his beloved has freely turned away from him--- and so he ascribes sinister or magical properties to the interloper. He calls him a hypnotist or a thief or a home-breaker. In the vast majority of cases, however, when a home is broken, the breaking has begun long before any"third party" has appeared on the scene.












A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,

going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out

from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw


As his car passed, one child appeared, and a brick smashed into the Jag's

side door. He slammed on the brakes and spun the Jag back to the spot from where

the brick had been


He jumped out of the car, grabbed some kid and pushed him up against a parked

car, shouting,"What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are

you doing?"Building up a head of steam, he went on"That's a new car and that

brick you threw is gonna cost a lot of money. Why did you do

三:Facing the Sea With Spring Blossoms—HaiZi

From tomorrow on,I will be a happy man.

Grooming,chopping and traveling all over the world.

From tomorrow on,I will care foodstuff and vegetable.

Living in a house towards the sea, with spring


From tomorrow on,write to each of my dear ones.

Telling them of my happiness.

What the lightening of happiness has told me.

I will spread it to each of them.

Give a warm name for every river and every mountain.

Strangers,I will also wish you happy.

May you have a brilliant future!

May you lovers eventually become spouses!

May you enjoy happiness in this earthly world!

I only wish to face the sea, with spring blossoms.
















四:True Nobility

In a calm sea every man is a pilot.

But all sunshine without shade, all pleasure without pain, is not life at all.Take the lot of the happiest- it is a tangled yarn.Bereavements and blessings,one following another, make us sad and blessed by turns. Even death itself makes life more loving. Men come closest to their true selves in the sober moments of life, under the shadows of sorrow and loss.

In the affairs of life or of business, it is not intellect that tells so much as character, not brains so much as heart, not genius so much as self-control, patience, and discipline, regulated by judgment.

I have always believed that the man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without. In an age of extravagance and waste, I wish I could show to the world how few the real wants of humanity are.

To regret one's errors to the point of not repeating them is true repentance.There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.








It was a sunny Saturday afternoon in Oklahoma City. My friend and proud father Bobby Lewis was taking his two little boys to play miniature golf. He walked up to the fellow at the ticket counter and said,"How much is it to get in?"

The young man replied,"$3.00 for you and$3.00 for any kid who is older than six. We let them in free if they are six or younger. How old are they?"

Bobby replied,"The lawyer's three and the doctor is seven, so I guess I owe you$6.00."

The man at the ticket counter said,"Hey, Mister, did you just win the lottery or something? You could have saved yourself three bucks. You could have told me that the older one was six; I wouldn't have known the difference." Bobby replied,"Yes, that may be true, but the kids would have known the difference."

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said,"Who you are speaks so loudly I can't hear what you're saying." In challenging times when ethics are more important than ever before, make sure you set a good example for everyone you work and live with.
