Why we need to be careful of what we say after the words “I Am”.


A Christmas gift at the end of the post.

“I Am That I Am” are considered sacred words as it is the response what Moses got when he asked God for his name. Spiritual speakers like Wayne Dyer, Pastor Joel Osteen and many more have highlighted the power of the words “I Am” in shaping our future. Dr. Wayne Dyer explains that the words “I Am” are sacred identification of God so we should be very cautious when we use these words in our day today life.

I am

I am

“The words I AM are your sacred identification as God- your highest self. Take care how you use this terms because saying anything after I AM that’s incongruent with God is really taking the Lord’s name in vain!” — Wayne W. Dyer

As per Pastor Joel Osteen the words “I Am” are magnetic and whatever we put after “I Am” comes looking for us. Whatever we say after the words “I Am” we invite that in our life.

Let us take a look at our thoughts; what do we mostly say or think after “I Am” in our regular phrases. Do we say “I Am Sick,” “I Am Tired”, “I Am Depressed,” “I Am Fed up,” “I Am Scrapping by,” “I Am Broke,” “I Am Lonely,” or do we think the exact opposite.

When you get up and see yourself in the mirror what are your first thoughts. “I Am looking so old,” or “I Am so fat,” or do you say “I Am always late,”

Take an honest test of your thoughts and answer this question. Is your life attracting exactly what you say after “I Am” or this spiritual law does not apply to you. Take your time start keeping check of your thoughts and spoken words and note if they actually become a reality in your life.

If this spiritual law works in your life I have amazing good news for you. You can shape your own future and your own life. Just get extremely conscious about your words. Never say or think anything negative about you and while you are at it why to think anything negative about others too. Just remove every negative thought and word from your life.

Make a list of affirmations that means a lot to you starting with “I Am” and read it in the morning after you get up, at night before you sleep and if you like read it whenever you get time during the day. Play it like a song in your head. Even if the affirmations are not true (yet) you should always use present tense to set the positive forces in motions.

I have mentioned some affirmations starting with the sacred, magical, magnetic words “I Am” in my post – Create A Better Tomorrow with Pre-Sleep Visualization

“I am well,”
“I am content,”
“I am lucky,”
“I am rich,”
“I am strong,”

“I am blessed with a wonderful family,”
“I am blessed ….;”

Clarity is the First Step towards Success


Since my last post – Is there a Formula for Failure? Lesson from Dr. Wayne Dyer’s ‘Your Sacred Self’ I felt like I told half of a story. In that, post we discussed how to avoid failures and the next question that popped up my mind was “Is there a formula for success?”

Clarity is the First Step towards Success

Clarity is the First Step towards Success

I have read a lot of material on success and goal setting. From all the great books I read I learned that there is not a single path to success. Successful people find or if required build their own road to achieve their dreams. Well I don’t have a formula for success (yet) but I do know one thing for sure that is the First Step towards Success is Clarity.

“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” -Bruce Lee

We think about our present status and all the current hurdles which dilutes our focus and as a results we lack clarity. Just as the Sun’s brightness gets covered with clouds we lose sight of our goals when temporary problems cross our way or worse we start giving more importance to these problems then our goals.

I agree it is hard to stay enthusiastic about our goals when life throws unexpected difficulties. In such conditions the only question that matters is “How serious are you about your goals?”

“It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration. Those emotions are poison to any living goal.” — Steve Maraboli

Create in your mind such a precise picture about your successful life that you feel you have already achieved it. Let the vision pull you towards the beautiful life you want. Make your mind habitual towards the successful life you are striving for. Give your subconscious mind a glimpse of what you want so it can start working with you to achieve the dream life.

“We would do well to remember that the success of any struggle depends on the determination of its leaders and the clarity of its purpose, not the doubts of naysayers.” — Saree Makdisi

Most of the time we lose sight of our goals is when we think about other opinions over our inner voice. Many dreams are scarified because people are too concerned about disappointing others. It is sad that people would rather be where they are for the rest of their life then take risks. Getting mocked is people’s biggest fear and I think that’s what differentiates successful people from unsuccessful ones.

One cannot achieve success without stepping out of the comfort zone even if there is a risk of failing or getting mocked by others. We need to clear our thoughts about our own goal and not confuse with what others expect us to do or be.

“People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change also….but only after doing their best to make you stop. Live your truth and don’t EVER stop.” — Steve Maraboli

Before you start working on any of your goals you need to ask questions like:

. What exactly do I want?

. Where do I want to reach?

. What am I ready to give or do to reach this goal?

. Where do I see myself in the future?

If you have a clear goal then and only then you can start your journey on the path of success. It is simple (I do not mean easy) to achieve even the toughest goal if you have a clear picture about what exactly you want. Without clarity we make things complicated and delay our success.

Is there a Formula for Failure? Lesson from Dr. Wayne Dyer’s “Your Sacred Self”

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it.” — Wayne W. Dyer

Is there a Formula for Failure? Lesson from Dr. Wayne Dyer’s “Your Sacred Self”

Is there a Formula for Failure? Lesson from Dr. Wayne Dyer’s “Your Sacred Self”

Dr. Wayne Dyer also known as “father of motivation” by his fans has written more than 40 books in the field of self–development. I am currently reading his “Your Sacred Self” and right in the start of this wonderful book a formula for failure jumped out at me. I would love to share this with you.

“You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.” — Wayne W. Dyer

As per Dr. Wayne Dyer there is not one single formula for success. Every successful person finds his /her own path to achieve the desired results. But when it comes to failure he does mention a formula which all of us should be aware of so that we can make sure we are not on the path of failure.

“Formula for Failure: Trying to please everyone and ignoring our inner impulse.”

Don’t we fall into the rut to make everyone around us happy? Even when our inner voice the intelligence that has baffled science for centuries tells us to let go or do something which will actually add value to your life or will put us a step closer to our desire.

Why are we so eager to be people pleasers? Why the opinion of others is more important than our inner impulse? Do you feel the same? Do you silent your inner impulse just because you think you will not get others approval?

“I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I’m not.” — Wayne W. Dyer

Think about it. The creator has made us different. Every individual is unique. Even identical twins have a different personality, different dreams and of course a different destiny. So there is really no point in trying to fit in a perfection mold.

Our inner impulse always leads us towards fulfilling our destiny or towards our calling. We need to make our mind quite to listen to this voice so remove the noise of others. Try to give less importance to what others say or think and try to listen to your inner voice.

It is almost impossible to make everyone happy. It makes more sense to find a path that takes you to your dreams while serving others. Not the other way around.

“Enjoying life is far superior to being graded on your performance in life.” — Wayne W. Dyer

How to Lose Weight with Help of Simple Mind Tricks


Our subconscious mind takes care of our habits. It is challenging to change a habit or follow a new one, as our subconscious mind is rigid and stubborn. However, can we trick our subconscious mind to make some changes for good? Can we trick it until it adapts to the new habits that help us lose weight? I believe we can and the following points will help you get started with this new weight loss idea. If you come up with some more ideas feel free to write them in the comment so that everyone can benefit.

How to Lose Weight with Help of Simple Mind Tricks

How to Lose Weight with Help of Simple Mind Tricks

“I may not be as strong as I think, but I know many tricks and I have resolution.” — Ernest Hemingway

1. Rise Early:

If you are not a morning person it will take you some time to adopt this change but once you get use to starting your day early you will completely love the serenity of the morning time. You will be more productive and would be able to accomplish more than just weigh loss.

Start exercising within 30 mins after you wake up. Why? Because our mind is smart enough to find excuses and avoid working out later in the whole day. I have started keeping my workout clothes and shoes near my bed so I stumble upon them first thing in the morning. Before my mind tells me to sleep for 5 more mins I get dressed for my workout.

“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” — Carlos Castaneda

2. Have a Hearty Healthy Breakfast:

Make this your biggest meal of the day. Eat healthy breakfast but avoid sugary cereals. A vegetable juice can be a very good addition to your breakfast and please don’t trust the package juices as they are mostly fake and filled with sugar.

If you love sweets don’t have them after dinner have a small portion with your breakfast giving yourself enough time to burn the calories but don’t make this a habit. If you get tempted say to yourself. This will stay for few minutes on my lips but forever on my hips. Trust me this line works.

3. Eat Slow:

Eat like a baby. I understand you may not have time to eat slowly in the morning but you can try this trick for your lunch and dinner. Eat in small plates, eat extremely small bits, and chew a lot. This will make you full very soon. You will be surprised how much less food is required to feel full. As you chew your food properly it will help with the digestion. A happy stomach will reward you in many ways. Losing weight will just be one of them.

“Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes.” — Charles Dickens

4. Cutoff Time:

Have your dinner early. Keep a gap of 2 to 3 hours between your dinner and bed time as this helps with the digestions. This habit will also take some getting used to so here is an excellent trick that I recently found out. Brush your teeth immediately after dinner and send a signal to your mind to cutoff any thoughts about food for that day. The fresh minty taste of the toothpaste will also help to control your sweet tooth cravings.

“The trick is to enjoy life. Don’t wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead.” — Marjorie Pay Hinckley

5. Keep Moving:

If you have a sitting job try walking for a couple of mins every 1 hour. Walk to the water cooler, to the washroom, printer, a colleague anything just get up every hour or 90 mins and walk for a minute or two. Everything adds up a min of walk or a piece of candy. Your weight loss success depends on what you choose.

A very effective way to shed some pounds is to go for a walk after dinner. What it is raining outside? You say or you have to watch your favorite TV show after dinner. Then I suggest walking inside the house or march in one place as long as the show runs 30 mins or an hour. Be gentle with your knees and ankles as you walk, run or job.

“Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.” — Tom Peters
