How this guy (Terry Fox) lived his life will Inspire you for sure….

terry-fox

Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but he was raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. When he was a teen, Terry Fox was very much involved in various sports, but at the age of 18, he was diagnosed with bone cancer, and had to have his right leg amputated above the knee. Right before the operation, Terry read about an amputee who had completed the New York Marathon. He was moved by the man’s courage and determination, and this story ended up being one of the main motivations behind Terry’s ambitious Marathon of Hope. In 1980, he began the Marathon of Hope, a cross-country run to raise money for cancer research. Fox hoped to raise one dollar for each of Canada’s 24 million people.

He began with little fanfare from St. John’s, Newfoundland, in April and ran the equivalent of a full marathon every day. Fox had become a national star by the time he reached Ontario; he made numerous public appearances with businessmen, athletes, and politicians in his efforts to raise money. He was forced to end his run outside of Thunder Bay when the cancer spread to his lungs. His hopes of overcoming the disease and completing his marathon ended when he died nine months later.

Terry never finished his run, stopping near Thunder Bay, Ontario after running 5373 kilometers over 143 days worn out and in need of medical attention as his cancer reappeared in his lungs. Terry passed away at the age of 22 on June 28, 1981. Year 1981 witnessed the first Annual Terry Fox Run, it has involved millions of participants  in over 60 countries and presently it is the world’s largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research; over C$500 million has been raised in his name.

Fox was the youngest person ever named a Companion of the Order of Canada. He won the 1980 Lou Marsh Award as the nation’s top sportsman and was named Canada’s Newsmaker of the Year in both 1980 and 1981. Considered a national hero, he has had many buildings, roads and parks named in his honor across the country.

“Everybody seems to have given up hope of trying. I haven’t. It isn’t easy and it isn’t supposed to be, but I’m accomplishing something. How many people give up a lot to do something good. I’m sure we would have found a cure for cancer 20 years ago if we had really tried”
-Fox speaking outside of Ottawa.

Today Fox has become immortal, with a number of statues being carved, he is alive in the heart of millions.

Today movies are being made about Terry. Books have been written. Roads are named after him. Schools and Hospitals are named after him. Terry is the burning example that it does not take various lifetimes to leave a mark, but a single life spent doing something extraordinary. Terry was an ordinary human being with an extraordinary heart. Even though he lived for a short period of 22 years, he did something so great to be remembered for the decades to come.

You’ve probably never heard of him. But he is An Inspiration.

You’ve probably never heard of him. However, in Hungary, he’s a national hero – everybody there knows his name and his incredible story. After reading his story, you’ll never forget him…
Károly Takács  (21 January 1910 – 5 January 1976) was the first shooter to win two Olympic gold medals in the 25meter rapid fire pistol event, both with his left hand after his right hand was seriously injured. He is the third known physically disabled athlete to have competed in the Olympic Games after George Eyser  in 1904 and Oliver Halassy in 1928, followed by Liz Hartel in 1952 and Neroli Fairhall in 1984.
In 1938, Karoly Takacs of the Hungarian Army, was the top pistol shooter in the world. He was expected to win the gold in the 1940 Olympic Games scheduled for Tokyo.
Those expectations vanished one terrible day just months before the Olympics.While training with his army squad, a hand grenade exploded in Takacs’ right hand, and Takacs’ shooting hand was blown off.
Takacs spent a month in the hospital depressed at both the loss of his hand, and the end to his Olympic dream. At that point most people would have quit. And they would have probably spent the rest of their life feeling sorry for themselves. Most people would have quit but not Takacs. Takacs was a winner. Winners know that they can’t let circumstances keep them down. They understand that life is hard and that they can’t let life beat them down. Winners know in their heart that quitting is not an option.
Takacs did the unthinkable; he picked himself up, dusted himself off, and decided to learn how to shoot with his left hand! His reasoning was simple. He simply asked himself, “Why not?”
Instead of focusing on what he didn’t have – a world class right shooting hand, he decided to focus on what he did have – incredible mental toughness, and a healthy left hand that with time, could be developed to shoot like a champion.
For months Takacs practiced by himself. No one knew what he was doing. Maybe he didn’t want to subject himself to people who most certainly would have discouraged him from his rekindled dream.
 images (1)tt
In the spring of 1939 he showed up at the Hungarian National Pistol Shooting Championship. Other shooters approached Takacs to give him their condolences and to congratulate him on having the strength to come watch them shoot. They were surprised when he said, “I didn’t come to watch, I came to compete.” They were even more surprised when Takacs won!
The 1940 and 1944 Olympics were cancelled because of World War II. It looked like Takacs’ Olympic Dream would never have a chance to realize itself. But Takacs kept training and in 1944 he qualified for the London Olympics. At the age of 38, Takacs won the Gold Medal and set a new world record in pistol shooting. Four years later, Takacs won the Gold Medal again at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. Takacs – a man with the mental toughness to bounce back from anything.
Winners in every field have a special trait that helps them become unstoppable. A special characteristic that allows them to survive major setbacks on the road to success. Winners recover QUICKLY. Bouncing back is not enough.
Winners bounce back QUICKLY. They take their hit, they experience their setback, they have the wind taken out of their sails, but they immediately recover. Right away they FORCE themselves to look at the bright side of things – ANY bright side, and they say to themselves, “That’s OK. There is always a way. I will find a way.” They dust themselves off, and pick up where they left off.
The reason quick recovery is important is that if you recover quickly, you don’t lose your momentum and your drive. Takacs recovered in only one month. If he had wallowed in his misery, if he had stayed “under the circumstances,” if he had played the martyr, and felt sorry for himself much longer, he would have lost his mental edge – his “eye of the tiger” and he never would have been able to come back.
When a boxer gets knocked down, he has ten seconds to get back up. If he gets up in eleven seconds, he loses the fight. Remember that next time you get knocked down.
Takacs definitely had a right to feel sorry for himself. He had a right to stay depressed and to ask himself “Why me?” for the rest of his life. He had the right to act like a mediocre man.
Takacs could have let his terrible accident cause him to become permanently discouraged, to take up heavy drinking, to quit on life all together, and maybe even to end his own life. He could have acted like a loser.
But Takacs made the DECISION to dig deep inside and to find a solution. To pick himself up and to learn to shoot all over again. Winners always search for a solution. Losers always search for an escape.
Next time you get knocked down, DECIDE you will act like a winner. DECIDE to act like Takacs.
Get up quickly, take action, and astound the world.

Are you with the Right One’s ???

Thousand Thoughts...

Surround yourself with positive people!

If you are ever going to live a satisfying, meaningful and successful life, the kind of people you surround yourself with plays an important role. It is being said that you are who you surround yourself with. If you hang out with positive people, you’ll be a positive person and if you hang out with negative people, you’ll definitely see life from a negative angle.

Try to answer these questions;

Who is on your team?

Who do you hang out with?

Who are those you spend most of your time with?

Are they people that build you up or the ones that pull you down?

Are they feeding the positive side of you or the ones that feeds the negativity?

Birds of a feather flock together. Many friends don’t have anything good to offer. They are with you to only impact you negatively.

If you keep friends that don’t add to you in any way, I bet they are not worthy to be called your friends. Don’t not worry about what they think of you. There will always be those who want to see you fail simply because they can’t succeed.

Beware of toxic and negative relatives, friends or colleagues. Flee from them as fast as you can because they don’t deserve you. It is impossible for negative people to bring forth anything positive out of you. Negative people possess negative mindset.

They see no reason to pursue their dreams because they already saw it as an impossible task even right before they started it. They might not have ever imagined what you must be willing to achieve. They can never let you succeed in such a situation.

Possibility doesn’t exist in their dictionary. When you tell negative people about your dreams, they tell you only about the challenges in order to make you lose focus. They hardly see the goals. For you to achieve success, you need to first imbibe a positive mindset yourself. You need to see possibilities in your dreams. Then surround yourself with positive people that believe in your dreams. People that build you up mentally, physically and spiritually. People that are ready to influence you positively. People that you learn from always. People that their advices you can’t joke with. People that make you believe success is achievable! Because that is why you are here. You deserve success.

You must pursue the greatness you have, you are born with huge potential and you have no right to limit yourself. You have to and you MUST succeed.

Stuck In “To do or Not to Do”? Resolve Your Internal Conflicts NOW .

Internal Conflicts

Most Of the time people Give up just because they fail to resolve their own Internal Conflicts..

Once you manage to overcome your Internal Conflicts, you will be able to take Instant Decision.. On your Own!!!

This pattern helps with the very common problem of disagreement between parts.

When you struggle with yourself to do or not do something, when you procrastinate

what you  must do now and seem to be arguing with yourself in your mind, this is the pattern to use.

Follow these simple steps to Fight the problem of Internal Conflicts…

Step 1. The Conflict

Select a personal conflict. This can be anything, “Shall I listen to what they say”? or “Should I ignore them” ? It may be something you’ve contradictory feelings about, or some way that you sabotage yourself or cannot accept yourself. Reason can be anything, just take that situation.

Step 2. A Memory

Recall a memory of experiencing this inner conflict. When did you felt it?? View it from the observer position. Analyse it, Observe it.

Step 3. Take a Side

Get into the first perceptual position with one side of the conflict. Step into the experience. Review the OTHER side of the conflict from this position. Notice what comes up during this in all sense modes.

Step 4. Positive Intention

Still on that side, ask the other side to express all of its positive intentions, including any beliefs ( set by your o others for you ) and goals that it can express to your side.

Step 5. Switch

Now step into the other part. From this position, repeat steps three and four.

STEP6. Repeat

Repeat this switching and receiving until both sides have a good understanding of each other. Be sure to include beliefs ( including limiting beliefs ), values, and objectives.

Step 7. Meta-Position (Above usual)

Move to a meta-position above both parts. From there, ask the parts to propose solutions or outcomes that they expect to be satisfactory to both sides. Draw out concerns from either side about these ideas, and note any ecological issues. Do as much brain-storming as you need to in order to come up with a good collection of ideas.

Step 8.  New Part

Notice how this new collection of ideas is an amalgam of the values and higher intentions of the two parts. It is also an agenda. Experience how it could be considered a part all on its own. Bring this part into your body and accept it as an important part.

Step 9. Future Pace and Test

Imagine a future with this part creating results for you. Redo this process as needed for any ecological concerns or problems. Test it out in real life and come back to this process as needed.

Practice it a few times to get results you always wanted.

Feel free to share this with people you know, so that they can get some benefit as well. !!

An Insult that Changed the Automobile World !!!

Lamborghini

 

When Someone Underestimates you, don’t feel bad. Prevent the Negativity to surround you instead use their words to work for you as a Trigger- The Driving force that will Inspire you at every stage and force you to Fight back in any situation. This is what Ferruccio Lamborghini did.

Lamborghini was drawn more to farming machinery rather than the farming lifestyle itself. Following his interest in mechanics, Lamborghini studied at the Fratelli Taddia technical institute near Bologna. In 1940 he was drafted into the Italian Royal Air Force, where he served as a mechanic at the Italian garrison on the island of Rhodes, becoming the supervisor of the vehicle maintenance unit.

Who was Ferruccio Lamborghini?

Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini (April 28, 1916 – February 20, 1993) was an Italian industrialist. Born to grape farmers from the comune of Renazzo di Cento in the Emilia-Romagna region, his mechanical know-how led him to enter the business of tractor manufacturing in 1948, when he founded Lamborghini Trattori, which quickly became an important manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the midst of Italy’s post-war economic reform.  In 1963, he most famously created Automobili Lamborghini, a maker of high-end sports cars in Sant’Agata Bolognese

The sole reason of shifting his business from farm vehicles to super-power cars was Enzo Ferrari’s undermining words, “you stick to tractors and let me build sports cars.” 

And Today, we all Know what “Lamborghini’s are Known for !!!!

Discovering the Positive Intent behind any Negative Behavior.

fgrg

 

 

“If you can change your mind, you can change your life.

What you believe creates the actual fact.

The greatest revolution of my generation is to discover that

Individuals, by changing their inner attitudes of mind, can change

the outer aspects of their lives.”

– William James

 

Transform self-sabotage into success. By discovering the positive intent behind a negative behavior or attitude,

you can release tremendous energy and positive commitment. In his outstanding book Sleight Of Mouth:

The Magic Of Conversational Belief Change, master trainer and famous NLP developer Robert Dilts says:

“At some level all behavior is (or at one time was) “positively intended.” It is or was perceived as appropriate given the context in which it was established, from the point of view of the person whose behavior it is. It is easier and more productive to respond to the intention rather than the expression of a problematic behavior. “

 Here are the steps to Find Positive Intentions  in the whatever you do…

 

Step #1. Define the problem.

Briefly state the problem with enough detail so that it is clear in your mind. Mind must be clear about what

the exact problem is. It may primarily be a situation, personal problem, or a challenge. Define what meaning you

give to an Unproductive Behavior. Be clear about what behavior is productive. State the reason for the meaning you gave,

why any particular behavior is unproductive as per you. You must be clear about it, with no confusions.

 

Step #2. Reveal the Underlying Motives

Take a few minutes to relax, breathe deeply and lay back. Now, go inside, imagine your mind has special internal messengers.”

These are parts of your personality, which have characteristic tendencies or habitual behaviors.

Find the part that is responsible for generating the unproductive behavior.

Bring this part into awareness as though it were a complete personality.

Remember that a part is an aspect of you.

A part is like a little personality inside of you. In order to be aligned and successful,

you must not work at cross purposes with yourself. This requires negotiating or working with your parts.

Now imagine that you can do a role playing game with this particular part. Ask the part what it

wanted to have, do or become, through the negative behavior or attitude. What value or benefit it

expects to get from this. Ask directly, “What did you wish for me to accomplish by doing this?”

Take as much time as you need to imagine and listen to the part’s responses.

 

Step #3. Get to the core motives.

Keep asking “why” and “what” questions to clarify the motives. Recycle each answer into a new question.

Practice questioning until you feel that you have gotten to the core motives. You should identify a

core belief along with the core value and core reasons for the behaviors or attitudes that, at first glance,

seem to be unsupportive of you.

 

 

Wish to Achieve Something??? Here’s what you must Read- A Script for Self Anchoring !!!

 

 1 (65)

 

Anchoring is how we get into the right state for what we want to do.

You connect a symbol with the desired state, or resource state. It’s called a resource state, because

you are more resourceful when you are in that state. This is the state when you can

make the best use of the resources you have. Of course, the state must be a good resource state

for what you have in mind. It must be congruent to what you wished to accomplish. If you have

intense confidence and desire for opportunity as a resource state, it would be very

good for a job interview, and maybe not so good for being a grief counselor.

 

Here’s a Short yet Useful Script that will surely help you to practice Anchoring on your own-self.

 

Decide what state you want to create an anchor for. For example, perhaps you would like

to anchor a good state for meeting and negotiating. Whatever it is chose one … Move into

third position, as if you are watching your life in a movie. Recall all the times that you felt

some aspect of that state.

 

Every time you feel some aspect of the desired state, amplify it and expand it.

See yourself in the movie experiencing that state, and let yourself as the observer

feel it as well. (That’s a little different from the usual third position experience.)

Keep doing that until you feel the state intensely …

 

Each time you think of a time in which you felt some aspect of that state, see what

is most visually positive and compelling. Emphasize those visual elements in the

movie. Hear what is most audibly positive and compelling … Hear any words that

others said or that you could say that are most mentally positive and compelling …

 

Feel what is most palpably positive and compelling … Feel whatever internal

sensations are most positive and compelling, like feeling very up or expansive … See

yourself now, standing in a nice place,fully feeling that state, and see how you look

in that state–your facial expression, your posture, you can even add cosmic energy

of just the right color streaming into your aura.

 

Now create a sign with your hand such as an OK sign, one that you would not

do very often, or interlace your fingers in the opposite way from normal, and hold

that position while you imagine moving into first position (directly in the feelings)

with your eyes closed (so there are no distractions from the feeling), and savor the

state

How Would You Like to be Remembered.?

think_different_martin_luther_king_john_lennon_steve_jobs_and_albert_einstein-wallpaper-1920x1080

About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake. His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him.

The obituary read, “Dynamite King Dies.” And also “He was the merchant of death.” This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words “merchant of death,” he asked himself a question, “Is this how I am going to be remembered?” He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered.

From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize. Alfred Nobel 1833-1896 Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been honoring men and women from all corners of the globe for outstanding achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and for work in peace.

The foundations for the prize were laid in 1895 when Alfred Nobel wrote his last will, leaving much of his wealth to the establishment of the Nobel Prize Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.

What is your legacy?

How would you like to be remembered?

Will you be spoken well of?

Will you be remembered with love and respect?

Will you be missed? !!!

#Remember:- Your Life is a your message to the world, make sure its Inspiring.

Its Your Life and You MUST Take Charge of It !!!

1 (74)

 

 

It’s time to take care of you. Live your dream. Do what you know and not what you feel. Listen to what your heart says,  listen to what you always asked for.  You deserve to live too! You have needs too! 

Give yourself a mental break and take time to get centered, grounded and reconnected with your spirit. Allowing your time to be wasted with people who are not serious is not fruitful and it’s stressful. Be with the ones who Inspires you instead of those who stops you.

Staying in a job where you are not appreciated or valued or validated is draining and toxic. They don’t deserve you. Hanging on to a relationship that has been dead a long time ago takes a toll. Finish it off now, take a stand !!!  Take a deep breath and tap into the courage to make the tough decision.

Things might be difficult for a while, but don’t underestimate yourself.  You are Blessed with huge Potentials. Have Faith in The Almighty and Trust Self. Follow your Intuition, everything is already there for you. All you need do is to trust them have faith in it and open your divine heart to receive it. Intuitions will show you ways to get your desires manifested and believe me these will lead you on the right path if you have faith in your inner self. With this you will experience greatest transformation within yourself.

 

 

Manage all Your Negative Thoughts on Your Own Now, using Swish. Learn How!!!

ttcopy

The Swish is an NLP technique for dealing with unpleasant feelings.

This is a valuable technique for managing negative thoughts and feelings about:

  • The past: e.g. feelings from embarrassing or irritating memories
  • The present: e.g. feelings provoked by self-undermining thoughts
  • The future: e.g. anxiety-provoking thoughts about forthcoming situations.

Credits for the creation of this NLP pattern belong to Richard Bandler and John Grinder.  This helps to Break an automatic thought or behavior pattern, and replace it with a resourceful one. Use the Swish pattern for problems such as smoking cessation, anger management, public speaking, nervousness, self-confidence, and self-esteem. The Swish is an NLP technique for dealing with unpleasant feelings. With the help of this amazing technique one can get free from any bad habit, he wants to leave. This Transforms your Negativity into Positivity as you will now be able to replace the Negative thoughts into Positive Ones and All your Limiting Beliefs will now be Destroyed with consistent Practice.

Following Steps will help you to Understand the Working of this Powerful Technique.

Step 1. Recognize the automatic reaction

Recognize the automatic reaction , the thoughts, feelings, or images that occur to you when you think of the challenging situation.

Select a replacement image, something inspiring, such as a really good outcome  that helps create a positive state.

Imagine yourself in a dissociated image, the third perceptual position, as if you are watching yourself in a movie.

Enhance the qualities, such as submodalities of the scene until it is as compelling as possible.

*Submodalities refers to the subjective structural subdivisions within a given representational system.

 

Step 2. Determine the trigger of the negative image

Discover what tells your mind to produce the negative image or behavior.This is the very crucial stage of self analysis and you must be Very Honest to yourself.

Ask yourself, “What occurs just before this negative or unwanted state begins?” This time, you want an associated scene (first position, looking through your own eyes) of what is going on immediately before you engage in the unwanted activity.

Remember to think in terms of sub-modalities  to get a detailed sense of the scene. It functions as a trigger for the non-resourceful state.

Step 3. Place the replacement

Put the replacement off in the corner of the negative image. For Example you want to replace the Feeling of Failure with the one of Learning from the event that has happened. Imagine a small, postage-stamp-sized version of your replacement scene in the bottom corner of the negative scene.

Step 4. Swish the two images

You will be making both images change simultaneously and with increasing speed.  The bad feeling getting smaller and smaller with an increase in size of the picture of something positive you want to replace it with. When you Swish, have the negative scene become smaller and shoot off into the distance. At the same time, have the positive replacement image zip in closer and larger, rapidly and completely replacing the negative scene.

Imagine it making a strong sound (a sound that you can easily associate with) as it zips into place.

At first, you’ll probably do this slowly, taking a few seconds to complete the Swish.
As you repeat the process, you will be able to do it faster and faster, until you Swish nearly instantaneously.

Step 5. Repeat

Clear your mind after each Swish. This is very important. Do this by thinking of something else, such as your favorite color or what you need to do later. Remember to breathe easily during the Swish and the breaks. Do the Swish five to seven times, repeating steps three to five each time.
You know you have a good outcome when you have some difficulty maintaining the negative image.

 

Step 6. Test

Now try to use the limiting thought or behavior again. Notice how hard, if not impossible, it is for you to act it out. Notice that you actually have to think about how to do it first; it is not as automatic as it used to be. If you feel that you could relapse, use the Swish again in a day or two, and again after a week.

 

You Need To Practice on a Regular Basis So that you can have a Grip over It.
