Anna,repparttar Faithful, was almost forty. She was a faithful machine. She was satis­fied merely to continue to do her work well. A machine does that. A machine wears out. So do people who limit their efforts to mere doing. Success isrepparttar 142989 reward of growth, not of wearing out.

Purposeful doing is one step in advance of mere doing. It is stimulated by a desire to improve, and yet it does not guarantee success. One young man who had been inrepparttar 142990 same shipping office for 4 years, had been advanced torepparttar 142991 head of a department. He had had an idea of what to do and of how to make good withrepparttar 142992 boss. He worked with a purpose. His idea was this: "If I pleaserepparttar 142993 boss, he'll advance me." So, with a definite purpose, he schemed and was ad­vanced. But, afterrepparttar 142994 beginning ofrepparttar 142995 great war, there came to his firmrepparttar 142996 opportunity of greatly increased trade with Europe. He was chosen for important work, but failed to make good and was discharged within three months.

Having a purpose is not enough forrepparttar 142997 kind of success you want.

The bank robber has a purpose, and lie always succeeds-sooner or later-in being caught. The tramp has a purpose in asking for a ''hand out," and he always succeeds in making himself a useless member of so­ciety. Even well-intentioned and purpose­ful doing often fails. You knowrepparttar 142998 "I've-got-an-idea" man. He is enthusiastic and will work with a purpose first on one idea and then on another; but, it is always some­one else who makes a success of his ideas. Purposeful doing is based upon an idea or a desire, but, it usually fails because it lacks an ideal.

Asrepparttar 142999 man with a purpose often fails, so also many a young man-intelligent, enthu­siastic, hard-working and earnest starts in business for himself and fails, even after he has planned and thought out his entire problem. When he begins, he sees success within two or three years atrepparttar 143000 most. But, in six months,repparttar 143001 sheriff may close him up as a failure. Even planned doing-based upon ideas, desires, and thought-out proc­esses-fails unlessrepparttar 143002 process is idealized.

Music For Brainwave Entrainment

Want to listen to some music, and get smarter, or have instant easy meditation? There are products now that "entrain" your brainwaves, in order to put you in a meditative state. Music is embedded with beats and pulses that entrain your brain waves to a specific frequency. Put inrepparttar right CD or MP3 for your activity, and you get better brain function. Science? Partly.

Brain wave frequencies vary with mental state. Daydreaming and light meditation take place inrepparttar 142988 "Alpha" range of frequencies, for example. So if you listen to music containing beats at a frequency of 10 Hz you will generate more brainwaves at a 10 Hz frequency and enter a relaxed Alpha mental state. Do these things really work?

Yes. I've found two products that put me in a peaceful state unlike any other music or meditative practice. Studies will proverepparttar 142989 effects (some have already), and disproverepparttar 142990 wilder claims. Given my results, however, I wouldn't wait for more research. Many things work long beforerepparttar 142991 scientific proof arrives.

If you are skeptical, you can wait for more evidence ofrepparttar 142992 benefits of brainwave entrainment. Meanwhile, why not try classical music when you study, just to see if it helps? Experiment with music - Mozart isn't dangerous.
