Keys to Success
Vandana Anand (India)
Here are some highlights from a recent outstanding assessment:
I agree with the phrase; “Idea is Power.” A human mind has infinite potential, which remains untapped for most of the people. It is essential that we unleash the potential of our minds, apply the knowledge gained through learning and attain our definite goal in life. Lack of clarity in our goal stems from our unwillingness to harness our mind’s potential. I have come to believe this because, in my interaction with friends and colleagues, I don’t see a goal that they are trying to achieve in life. They lack vision, the purpose of existence, and they are not inspired to do something worthwhile in the world. I find it very unsettling. There is nobody in my close circle who is working towards a definite purpose in life. Their only concern in life is to make enough money or to buy a home, which is a too self-centric and short-term goal. We all have a responsibility towards making this world positive, better for our fellow human beings and the future generation.
I aim to inspire people, to fill them with confidence to take on any challenge in their lives and to help them become good communicators. You are communicating every moment – at times with yourself, at times with others, and sometimes with the cosmic force. In thinking, observing, reading, writing, listening, we are communicating, and it is vital that you communicate well to succeed in life. Your idea can change the way you see the world. It’s about your habits, core beliefs, the people that you are around and the environment that you are in. Clarity breeds mastery. The powerful practices will unlock your inner genius. You need to bring about real change in your life to bring about change in the world. You have to know where you are going in life. You can be the best version of yourself.
A person of faith can move mountains. Faith doesn’t come easy. A person has to have immense will power and inner strength to have faith. But when faith is the guide, the person can never go wrong, can never lose the way. Faith removes limitations from the mind. When nothing works, faith works. Your thoughts need to be positive to have faith. Ideas are the only thing over which you have full control. Your faith defines your thought process, and interchangeably, your thought process defines faith. No power in the world can change your mind until you give someone else the ability to do so. That area is entirely yours. We all have faith. One cannot live without faith. The difference is that the intensity of faith varies from individual to individual. Many people consider faith to be equivalent to religion, which is wrong. Faith has no religion. It has a direct connection with your subconscious mind, with your belief in the supreme energy that is guiding us all. A person without faith is like a person without a spine. Faith is the support system on which rests the entire life.
When you commit yourself to create a better future, you have a creative vision. With the source in the subconscious, creative vision springs from your commitment. It is more than an inspiration and imagination. It is a personal initiative where your driving force is a conscience that keeps you going to achieve a definite major purpose in life. There is no space for doubt and fear. There is a motive that inspires you to give your best. The critical thing to ask is where are you going? When you have a creative vision, you are helping others to succeed and are not driven only by your success.
A person who is inspired to transform the lives of others is driven by creative vision.
Creative vision drives very few people in this world. That is the reason why we need more leaders who can transform our society, our education system, our environment, the healthcare system, the social fabric, science, technology and the political system. We need to create a sustainable life for the entire ecosystem, and this is not possible till we have people with creative vision. A person who has creative vision goes that extra mile to achieve things and is inspired by faith to carry on with the work. Anyone can begin to develop it by being in good terms with your conscience, by inspiring yourself and having a definite major purpose.

Make A Difference
Dream Team 22
Please join Dream Team 22 as our goal is to have 220 people contributing $22 per month. We understand that money is energy and that to sustain and build IIGL we need a lot of people pouring their energy into this endeavor on a regular basis. We also know that not everyone can afford to commit $22 a month – especially our students, who live in countries with economies in which this amount can be equal to a weeks’ salary. So we are offering two options for those who wish to become a part of the Dream Team. One can commit to a $22 a month contribution or to spending 22 seconds each day holding the vision of IIGL becoming financially sustainable by the end of 2018.
Will you join the Dream Team and help us create an energetic foundation to support the transformational work of IIGL? You can really make a difference in the world by making a modest contribution of time or money. To make the $22 a month commitment or a one time donation, click the link below. To become a member of the Dream Team 22 by committing 22 second a day to help us hold the vision, contact Deb for details: email@example.com
