How To Discover And Use The Power Of You!

Written by Lee Wise

Continued from page 1


Did you catch it? I snuck something very important into my last example. A small ... but VERY important ... little phrase. "Forrepparttar next three days."

A specific time frame. It could have been forrepparttar 131313 next hour, day or even a week. The idea is viewing life a certain way withinrepparttar 131314 context of a very defined period of time. "Compressing" time if you please.


So how does this relate to discoveringrepparttar 131315 power of "Me?"

It's simple.

I pretend someone walks up to me and says: "Lee, if you had to give merepparttar 131316 top three things to remember about raising children, what would they be? And, I don't want a seminar! I've only got five minutes and I want you to give me your best shot!"

What would I do?

I'll tell you what I'd do. My mind would go into a very fast "search and filter mode." I would be thinking of things like crazy! And you know what? During this mental process I would be filtering out those things that have been most valuable to me as I've tried to be a good dad!

I'd be tapping into my own life wisdom. I'd be usingrepparttar 131317 power of "Me!" to help another person!

Are you getting it? I'm sure you are!!

WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS LAST EXAMPLE? (Or, howrepparttar 131318 three principles work together!)

1. I responded to a question. It was a very specific question. Ah hah! The power of a good question!

2. The question I responded to prompted my mind to begin its own journey to discover specific information *which I had!* Did you get that last point? My mind went on it's own discovery mission -- andrepparttar 131319 "source" of that wisdom was ...?

You got it -- ME!

Ah hah! The power of a "grid." My mind went on a search for very specific information. Other "material" was filtered out. My "grid" saw to that!!

3. I was "forced" to respond to a question in a very limited period of time.

Ah hah! The power of a compressed time frame!


YOU can use this process to tap into your own wealth of informtion.

Just ...

1. Ask yourself a specific question to answer about a defined topic. 2. Give yourself a VERY SHORT period of time to answer repparttar 131320 question you ask. 3. Then, think and write like crazy! "Drive" yourself to do it withinrepparttar 131321 time frame you set for yourself. TRY IT. RIGHT NOW! (Hint. This is a "how to" article!")

I'll set you up. Ready to write?

The question: "What would you say arerepparttar 131322 most important things to remember when talking to a teenager?"

The time frame: You've got three minutes. Tops!

Okay ... now write!!

*The Most Important Things To Remember When Talking To A Teenager Are ..."

The first thing that you must do is STOP. Just stop doing everything for a few days and think about what you're doing. You need to clear you brain to take an unobstructed look around. Analyze what it is that you're doing and why. Try to determine if what you're doing is truly benefiting to you and your life, or if it is simply filling a void.

The best way to tell is to determine if one of your tasks provides money, security, happiness, and a future of some sort. If it does not provide you with what you need, then determine why you felt it was necessary to perform that task inrepparttar first place. The beginning ofrepparttar 131310 answers lie right here. What was it about that task that caused you to think that it was of some benefit? Was it just a placeholder, or a time-waster, or did it actually contribute to your existence in some way?

Realize that fulfillment comes from performing tasks and experiencing things that support your vision in life and truly fill a need in your soul. If you have a vision, andrepparttar 131311 task does not somehow get you there, then you are simply wasting your time. However, if you find that you're not sure of your life's vision, then you need to takerepparttar 131312 time and figure out where you want to go in your life. In either case, you will be able to get out of panic mode by simply organizing your life.
