Personal Magnetism

Personal Magnetism 1 – Grand Daddy of All Self Help …

Posted on March 21, 2018. Filed under: Personal Magnetism |

We live in Deeds – Not Years; in Thoughts – Not Breadths; In Feelings – Not in figures on a Dial. We should count Time by Heart Throbs! Life is but a means to an End. That End? Beginning, Mean and End of All Things – GOD!


In all persons, rich or poor, strong or weak, intelligent or dull, there is present, as long as life lasts and perhaps even after, an inherent energy, physical and emotional, mental and spiritual, which – for want of a better name – we call Magnetism.

Magnetism is a resultant energy that is generated by Life itself. Its degree of power is directly dependent upon the amount of intelligent direction the Mind may give to the Body and all its Functions; or by following a Regime of Careful and Exact Conduct.

A person able to generate electricity by controlling Life’s forces within the Body is able to retain and use this power at will.

Magnetism is a quiet Fire of the Mind and Heart. It is the synonym of ControlSuperiority – whoever controls himself when compared with one who is controlled by circumstance.

A high degree of Magnetism tenses the face and broadens the features.

The Rise and fall of the tides of Magnetism, are as frequent as the movements of the Ocean. Magnetism depends upon Moods and Feelings. Thought and will yield to influences of the day, power of circumstance and the Will of Others.

 Magnetism is more or less fleeting in weak characters. It is an essence, a quality; an endowment that comes and goes at Will and is held in one’s grasp either by accidental habits or by proper training, in which Mind and Heart play important parts

Magnetism is as old as Man. It is Universal. Indeed all beings, and even inanimate matter, is endowed with Magnetism. Interestingly the Magnetic influences are greatest at night or in the waning of the year.

Magnetism can be Positive or Negative, High or Low. All humanity is divided into two classes – the Hypnotic or Controlled, who are living in the Negative Hemisphere and the Strong or Controlling, who are living in the Positive Hemisphere.

 Down the ages the battles of Life have been won by those supercharged with Magnetism. Rank is invariably determined by the degree of Magnetism, and its judicious use.

Magnetism aims at emancipating you from the slavery of Influences of Others and your own faults. It is a double power – aggressive and protective, the best friend of man and woman and their best defense.

When sufficiently developed it aims to make you the equal of the greatest persons in individual power.  It perfects Brainpower. Apply the principles of Magnetism and develop a brilliant, tireless, powerful and resourceful intellect.

 Magnetism is produced and retained by prevention of physical, nervous and mental leakages and attainment of inescapable charms.

All Life is controlled by laws. Adoption or Rejection result in Harmony or Penalty. Poverty is the natural penalty of Indifference. The bad grows by itself. The good has to be cultivated. Life is a highway and all roads lead somewhere. A man who stands still is not living. He may exist but he is better off buried.


Thinking, planning, reasoning are mental. Feeling, hoping, wishing, loving, existing in harmony are controlled by Moods and Feelings.

A Person with Magnetism held in abeyance  is sensitive, susceptible, impressionable and easily affected by moods and conditions.

To remain powerful, you have to maintain Mastery over the Moods. Slavery to a Mood is the most exacting form of slavery. People with a high degree of Magnetism seem cold in nature and lacking in sympathy with the misfortunes of others while possessing an attractive personal power

The quickest way to build Magnetism is to remove its enemies and move dwelling to the Positive Hemisphere.

To move the dwelling into the Positive Hemisphere, you have to stop and analyze the nature of the influences (natural or emanating from someone or some place) that maybe getting the better of you. All persons are subject to the unintended and unconscious influence of others. This is Negative Mental Telepathy.


 HYPNOTISM. Hypnotism puts to sleep the conscious Will and awakens a morbid condition of the subconscious faculty.

Hypnotism is a condition of painlessness established to release its prey from suffering (the bird looks at the glitter in the eye of the snake and is paralyzed and is content to die painlessly).

Self Hypnotism is mechanically produced through the optic nerve.

All forms of monotony (eye strain, monotony of gaze, of voice, of physical and mental activity, resulting in lapse of mental activity) are harmful to the Mind and Personal Power.

 Lapse of Thought is a brief hypnotic condition; it occurs when mentally busy while engaged in routine activity. Forgetfulness is a lapse.

Doubting minds are rarely if ever affected by hypnotism.

All forms of monotony and morbid conditions help in hypnotizing. Hypnotic depressions are contagious – like yawning. The scale of control begins from slight and goes onto total control.

Prevention of Hypnotism.

Physical. Never lean out of physical poise. Carry the vital organs and chest high with the shoulders low or solidly down. Keep the jaws firmly together.

Nervous. Study Magnetism. Control temper and irritability. Practice by exposing yourself to disturbing causes. Do eye movements, tensing and stretching.

Mental. Acquire the ‘ I do not believe’ habit. Cultivate detachment and cool.  Avoid surprise. ‘This too shall pass’ ‘God reigns and His Govt still lives’ 

IRITIBILITY.  It destroys Magnetism. Snapping at everything and everyone from dawn to dusk, fretting, fuming – giving way to irritation makes for the negative temperament.

You will say mean things, do acts of violence, act most unmanly and be unmagnetic. It comes like sneezing. It is the temper having a sneeze.     Recognize its approach and deflect it away.                                                   Habit of giving way to little things soon grinds out the exalted part of your character and leaves dross.

IRRITIBILTY SHOWS UNCONTROL IN THE MEANEST DEGREE.       Nothing needs more mastery than the temper.                                                     Lack of Magnetism causes irritability and results in the narrow, pinched and repulsive face.

CYNICISM                                                                                                              This weakens mind and heart. If you cannot speak well of others, keep silent. Adverse criticism is negative. To mock others is to chaff at God. Every time you turn on the mud pipe you daub yourself. You cannot besmirch another without getting spattered. The reaction in your own mind is harmful. Do not cater to this scum of the heart. Disappoint its morbid greed by refusing to become a sewer through which any filth will flow. The reason for this is that most humans are defective – but that is no excuse.

 FLIPPANCY                                                                                                             This is the most distasteful mood. It takes away the dignity of a person. It begins at home and is due to an unloosening of the restraints. It weakens the brain. Flippancy and morbid moroseness are the only off springs of an empty mind.                                        UNSUCCESSFUL PEOPLE are full of disgust for everything and everybody. The fault is due to their impatience and incredulity, unless their laziness is also the cause.                                                                                                   When a little success makes a man arrogant, overbearing and independent of the views of others – his ability is never great enough nor his past triumphs brilliant enough to prevent the decadence of his power.


LIVING HELL is confusion of the mental and nervous system. It is the first fruit of a lack of Poise.                                                                                      BRAIN STORM. This is when a person is driven by hate, envy, suspicion and jealousy to engage in crime and murder.                                                     WORRY kills. A minute of Worry destroys a mine of Magnetism.                       PAIN weakens Magnetism. Few are those who look after their real well-being and take interest in themselves.                                               STOMACH A weak stomach is the most potent thief of vitality. A man is what he eats. The stomach poisons the brain. Eyesight follows the stomach in everything.

Anything that weakens the nervous system, even if for a little while, must be turned down. Omit all rich foods and desserts. Ingest properly. No wolfish gulping down. Get up hungry from the table. The Stomach is the first of the Dark Appetites.

 INDIGESTION is the cause of irritation. Feed the mind by purpose and the brain by nutrition.

EXCESSES. Man has little control over himself. Then he goes about with pale features, sickly hue, and drawn and pinched lips – showing that his vitality and nerve centers have emptied themselves out. Excessive and pervasive sex is the second of the Dark Appetites.

WASTE OF TIME  It is the greatest sin. To be constantly doing something, whether of mind or body is the greatest of all virtues. It is the employment of the little minutes, the spare grains of time –in every 24hrs there are more than a 100 small periods of time, of a minute or more, in which it is easy to let time wing its flight, never to return.         Waste of time is robbery of life. There should be a supreme goal in life but also many minor ones constantly being selected and attained. Nothing should be left to shifting moods. The man who would be most powerful, must be most active but quietest in outward mien.

GOSSIP AND GAPING. Self-explanatory. Also the micro leakages, which add up to a mountain of PLF. Total Self Mastery even when alone in the confines of your room and in your own company.

 COMMON PLACES. A Commonplace is anything ordinary in speech, method or manner. Eliminate these commonplaces. Socially never say or do anything that is not elevating. Commonplaces do not elevate a person. Animal instincts despise beauty.

 A WARNING –  A HIGH DEGREE OF MAGNETISM CREATES A DOUBLE LIFE. It is the possibility of being fascinated with the hypnotic idea. The test is that whereas the Magnetism allures a person upward, hypnotism draws a person downward.                                                                                   In the Law of Life and Energy of the Soul, is the common fluctuation between the forces of attraction and repulsion, between good and evil. Hence the most moral of men are prone to commit the most heinous of crimes and vice versa.

 BEST CURE FOR THE ENEMIES OF MAGNETISM IS A BUOYANT TEMPERAMENT. Adopt a fixed temperament by adoption of fixed habits which should include methods of living. No man can have a better friend, a more staunch and abiding supporter than such a fixed temperament. Solicit the favor of sunshine and loving kindness and shower them wherever you go. It is the magnetic temperament.


No man or woman has achieved a great life’s work unless the wee small hours of the mornings have been employed. The earliest impulse of the day lives and breathes into a strong and pure life all through the hours till night. We are affected in the daytime by the first mood of the morning.

A magnetic person loves to be doing something. It is the most virile of all virtues. To arise in the morning ready and eager to live a full day through. To see as many books, as many persons – friends or not, as many transactions, as many activities as can be crowded into a single day. Do things that you dislike to do.

Do not shirk, dodge, evade, and put off. Do not avoid worthy duties of life. It is the part of wisdom to waste less time in cheap reading and cheaper gossip and to put more into self-improvement. Laziness is an enemy of Magnetism. An undeveloped nature is inactive.

Magnetism must be busy. A working mind adds something to individual power. Constant change and variation increase magnetic vitality. Activity is the right arm of strength and variety the constant refreshment of all our faculties. The faculties are best preserved by their constant use; but not overuse.

 MARGINS. Margins or never reaching the limits, are vital in each and everything.

AVOID too much rest, reclining, lounging, having someone else to do your work and errands. Much rest does injury to the faculties.

 MONEY. Respect it. Expenditure should always be less than ones income. Save for a rainy day. Never buy anything that you do not really need – no matter how cheap it might be.

REGIME. Follow a regime. A line of exact and careful conduct helps develops Power. Irregular living constantly subjects one to low vitality. Note the daily faults, which cause the vital power to slip away.

 EARNESTNESS To be sincere at all times is to be faithful to the trusts that have been reposed in you by nature and by GOD. Few are those who respect the powers with which they are endowed. You are not true to yourself if you neglect your health, your mind, your body, your faculties and your essential being. The true man or woman looks upon the necessities of life as incidents only of existence – useful at maintaining the faculties at their best. He who has nothing beyond the care of the body is poor in the most abject sense of the term.

 Always Be in Earnest – in Great Things and Small. This virtue will stamp itself upon your thought and affect your daily habits. Others will see it and you will be believed in and your power over others will rapidly become recognized. IT PAYS. Do not trifle with body, with mind, with health and with any facultyIn every deed, in every remark, in play, in sport, in love and in labor – in all things, be in Earnest. This temperament of Earnestness will stand you in good stead in hours of discouragement and conflict. It is your friend. It is the buoyant temperament.

The one great quality of the masses is Flippancy; of the successful men and women – Earnestness. Nothing is in vain that is in earnest. Want, Wish, Decide, Propose to Rise in Life – in Earnestness.

Magnetism demands that you make yourself believed in. It demands an active body. The purpose of the Mind should be sincere, honest, clear, definite and thorough.

We may become what we will but we must be in Earnest. For example, without a complete interest in what you are saying or doing, you cannot be in earnest. No lover can win the object of his adoration if his interest is dulled or weakened.

CHARMS                                                                                                       Magnetism is built upon Thoughtfulness.  Aim at becoming attractive and thoughtful to the needs of others. Care for Quality and Style. Develop gentleness, sweetness and kindness in the family circle. Be ever watchful of the needs of others. Anticipation is the Soul of Happiness. A wife likes attention. Neglect her and she will seek it elsewhere. There should be no fault finding in marriage. No magnetic person corrects errors, mistakes or stupidity by scolding or offensive action. A member of a family can be easily cured of a fault by using intelligence or by assuming the same habit to depict its total foolishness.

 You cannot shut your eyes to the fact that you are in competition with all mankind and that others stand ready to push you to one side, once you no longer can hold your own. Personal Attainments are powers that defeat each in itself, some counter influence that seeks to put you down.

 Charms are embellishments of manner, of method, of thought and even of feeling that cannot fail to lend power and advantage to those that possess them. Charms and embellishments are necessary and enhance Magnetism or indeed, Magnetism is enhanced by every physical and mental charm.

Charms enforce evenness of action and freedom from friction. They make you appear cool and free from embarrassmentWhen charm is strong, brain is strong.

 POLITENESS  Politeness builds Magnetism. Sy and practice it as an art before the near and dear and before the high and low.                   Sympathy is a Quality of the Heart. Politeness is a Quality of the Mind and Muscles. Talk to the least of your fellow humans as if you believed them worthy of your attention. Become skilled in the art of etiquette and polished in good breeding.

Polish is the fairest of all accomplishments. To become refined and polished, imagine that those whom you wish to impress the most are observing you. A man must absorb the ideal he has created, into his own nature and he or she must be the one person above all others who is desired by the ideal that has been created.

 In private and in front of others, want of careful conduct to yourself, is important. In marriage personal improvement – physical, mental and nervous – must continue. Whether alone or in company, take exacting care to behave and speak with the best culture. Diction should be free from coarseness and slang.

Private refinement enriches the character. Form the habit of observing yourself and note the faults that will lesson the respect others may have for you.


 Argument is very little employed in higher business. It is the personality of the man that counts. The General who wins his battles is nearly always reticent.

Thinking should precede speaking. There is mystery about a man or woman who does not have an opinion on every subject and who is not frothy and exuberant in words.

Do not open your mind on all occasions to everybody. It is commendable to keep your most private thoughts to yourself.

 Think, read, ponder Magnetism and all the great works of bygone ages. Shakespeare, the Bible, the Classics, Speeches. Reading may change the whole current of your life – inspiring and motivating you.

 Silence commands respect, impressing others with a weighty regard. Still waters run deep. Unsolicited opinions are cheap. The rare talker is always held in esteem. Reticence helps magnetic telepathy.


Talking aloud excites thought. Memorizing makes the brain strong, giving a new power to memory. Greater the number of quotations you imbibe and incorporate in your mind, richer will be the run of your thought.

 The Great Men and Women of the World, as far as is known, have been reciters in solitude, of the powerful extracts of great works. Mere reading of uplifting thoughts is beneficial.

 Mental wandering destroys Magnetism. Closing the mind injures it.

Expression and power go hand in hand. Vocabulary builds power. Add one new word to your vocabulary each day. The more words you can actually use with accuracy, the more control you will have over the thoughts and minds of others.



All geniuses and leading characters fill examples of plainness and gentleness in their lives.

 The great men and women of the world, as far as is known, have lived in their second self to themselves and in their outer self to others.

Place no value on the faults, which have dragged great men down.

Greatness lives in the lives of those who serve it. Absorb and be uplifted by the nobler thoughts of the world.

Cultivate solitude, biography, and fellowship of the Great.

Magnetism – Will Power …

Posted on March 6, 2018. Filed under: Personal Magnetism |


‘Success in Life, whether in the fields of Mind, Business or Body, whether in the acquisition of Knowledge, Happiness, Prosperity or Power, is directly dependent upon a sustained elasticity of temperament and the buoyancy of Hope.

The full round courage of a broad nature and the genius of an undaunted Will Power, always transforms Defeat into Victory’

 Will Power is blind energy with the Mind in control. Will Power is most powerful when it is most definite and most defined. Most of us do not even know what we want.

The Will Power is the power behind the throne, controlling the mental, moral and physical. There must however be in the body and in the brain  accumulated magnetism and the power to create it when required (vitalization, tensing intensity).

Habitual Regime must be insisted upon most rigidly and enemies of magnetism crushed continuously. Indomitable Will Power is the genius of all true greatness.

Success in Life is always secured by a concentration of attention.

Whatever you make up your mind to accomplish that will surely come to pass. Disinclination is the most common symptom of a diseased Will Power.

Development of the Will requires the cultivation of straightforward thought. The Will sets the goal of purpose. The tiger, the pugilist, a Napoleon crushes the prey to the earth. The Magnetic Will achieves the greater success as it ‘captures the will’ of the opponent.

In private life, many a person has failed in seeking to control the minds and wills of others, whereas a brighter mind has stepped in and won with ease.

No man or woman should ever make you a subject.

The body should be free, the mind more free and the Will Power most free of all. Let no one become your victor.

 The human brain controls our physical, intellectual and moral forces.

The human brain has three departments – the intellect, the emotions and the Will Power. Of these the Will is the most important for magnetism.

Without cultivating, developing and strengthening the Will, the other two aspects are useless. Many a person of strong Will Power has achieved the highest success in life without the aid of the intellect.

The Will sets the goal of purpose.

 The Human Body

The human body consists of tissue cells, so many millions in number that you could not count them in ten thousand years. Each cell is an organ of life having a complete existence and capable of supporting itself alone. It can eat, digest and multiply. It has intelligence and it has energy.

Your body is a collection of energies but in the form of a mass – as uncontrollable for magnetic purposes as a bale of cotton. You have to turn these energies into lines, into concentration, into a dangerous force.

The Mind and the Will

 The mind reciprocates the Will. Some Wills are lax, others are firm. But even in the strongest, few are able to weave these energies into a concentrated line.

You must learn to concentrate the Will……….. Begin by adopting the Regime.

The next step is concentrating or weaving all your millions of energies into one powerful line. Do it by imagination. This is the secret of the genius of the poet, author, orator, actor or warrior. Train the Will at home and in seclusion.

The Will is strongest when its intensity is smoothest. Perfect smoothness is the result of a consciousness of supreme power.

The tense mind imparts intensity to all the faculties. This is the secret of success for using the Will. To sustain the Will there must be a constant propulsive force and this comes from tensing the mind.

 Constant change and variation increases magnetic vitality – but nothing must be given up, nothing left incomplete, nothing allowed to displace the important matter.

The Ordinary and the Purposeful

Ordinary thought is automatic. Nothing automatic has power. Nothing must be done without thought behind it, directing it.

Think in looking. Think in talking. Think in moving. Above all prevent the wandering tendency of the mind. There is no hope of attaining power or developing the Will with a wandering Mind.

LESSON 2. The Latent and the Active Wills

There are two Wills – the Latent and the Active. Each has its share in every physical, mental and nervous activity. The latent Will has control and possession of all our faculties for the greater part of the time; common habits for example.

If you analyze yourself, you will recognize the difference between the Latent and the Active Will in every kind of utterance.

In all conversation the destroying agency of the Latent Will is present. The thoughts cone to the Mind, the words to the tongue, the two connect and so pass on their empty mission.

The Active Will and the Three Natures

 The ether sea connects the nervous system of all persons. The nervous system is the seat of the emotional nature or passions. The emotional nature moves, charms, fascinates when positive and may irritate when negative.

The mental nature convinces and the physical nature overpowers. The Active Will may direct any or all these three natures.

In the presence of others, one must train the Will always to be Active. The Active Will leads and the latent Will follows. Only the Active Will is capable of vibrating the ether sea; the Latent Will cannot vibrate the ether sea.

The Active Will

The Active Will is a conscious determination to accomplish a fixed purpose.

The Active Will must be connected to magnetism to use it. It is not possible to separate the Will from magnetism.

The Will is an agent of great energy when energized. Behind any person place a living determination and few persons can escape feeling the influence that is directly wielded.

Employ the Active Will by meaning what you say. A wish of the mind is of chief importance and speech is necessary.

A mental assertion prevents a wild presence of energy and determination, un-coined and unshaped.

 A mental assertion is the formulating of purpose into exact language. ‘ What I will to be done, I speak mentally over and over again, with all the energy, force and determination of my whole nature’. Be determined. But as we have said, few people know what they really want.

Whatever you assert mentally, with a firm belief in the fact stated, will in reality be so accepted if the nervous intensity of voice or eye, accompany it.


The center of the Face is the seat of emotional intelligence and is indicative of the heart’s mood. What the Mind and Heart feel, the face reflects in its fine and diversified nervous structure. The features are the result of what Will Power does as expressed in the Nervous System.

The Open Face receives more light, information and impressions. Magnetic persons show magnetism in the character that lives in the face. Beauty, character, nobility cannot be assumed. Strength of character will not be reflected in the face, if it does not exist. Magnetism tenses the face and broadens the features.

 The face is the key to the Mind and the Mind is the master of magneism. One evidence of a lack of control is the projecting lip.

 Animals and humans are ruled by an excessive firmness of Face and Manners. Animals know very well the resistant and fearless face and hesitate to attack till horror or relaxation is depicted.


Sit on one side of a room and place an object, depicting something you want to attract or repel, on the other side and as far away as possible. Draw in your mind’s eye a straight line between the core of your brain and the object. For attraction imagine the line turning into a curved line and the object being pulled towards you. For repulsion, imagine a curved line being straightened and the object being pushed away from you. For drawing the object towards you, imagine a silver line, being changed into a golden line and for repulsion, imagine a curved silver line being straightened into a hate line.

 In using these lines, everything should be done in a flash of speed. The Will must act as though it were directing a lightening bolt. The Will Power must pass with lightening rapidity from the Brain to the farther end and use this power for attracting or repelling. Do it again and again until the object is yours. Think, see, hear, feel, imagine, taste, will it.

 The change summons magnetism and concentration marshals the energies and the rapidity of the change denotes the heat of energy. Lightening fast movements and lightening fast success.

 The only object sought is for the brain energy to turn into ‘will’ energy. Intense thinking about anything will produce either a negative or a positive effect, let the matter be what it will – a wish, an object or a fact. You will either master it or be mastered by it

Use repulsion to drive away temptation and weakness and see them being driven away. Use attraction for a wish, quality, ambition or a person. Always remember the Ideals are always of the Soul and never of the body. That you may win friendship and ward off eniemity is certain. The first influence of magnetism should be directed towards the members of your family.

Gossip and Socrates …

Posted on November 1, 2012. Filed under: Guide Posts, Personal Magnetism, Personalities, Searching for Success, The Great Greeks, Weekly Goals |

Gossip is some thing the whole world loves. But being called or described as a gossip monger is something we all loathe. So how do the sensible get out of this horrible. but lovable  past time?

.Here is the story of how the great Socrates suggested it be shunned. He suggested what is described as the Triple Filter Test . So when some one ran to him to tell him what he had just heard about Diogenes, Socrates asked him to first check whether what he was going to tell him, would pass the Triple Filter Test?
First Filter -Has one made absolutely sure that what one is about to tell is true? This is a Filter of Truthfulness .
.Second Filter – Is what is a about to be told any good? This is a Filter of Goodness.
.Third Filter – Is what is about to be told of any use? This is the filter of Utility.
So maybe if we could pause to make these small checks, we could end up eliminating our tendency to gossip!

Rise Happy and Respect the Day. And the day will respect you! Remember the ‘Attitude of Gratitude’! Smiling the minute you wake up sends positive signals to your brain reassuring it that all is well with your world. This will help you carry the mood the entire day.everything is alright. 


Stretch those arms, legs, neck, head and just about every muscle and sinew in your body.  Stretching is Natures way of arousing your energies lying deep down and dormant. See how your cat or dog stretch and learn from them.


This you must do even before that morning cup of coffee or tea. Water comes second only to oxygen for us. It helps metabolize the fat content in your body that makes you sluggish. It is nature’s appetite suppressant. Hallelujah to WATER!


One of the greatest anti-depressants and stress busters. Turn up the volume and carry on with your morning rituals with it in the back ground.

Every once in a while make an idiot of your self by laughing out loud. This will set you free! By the way laughing out loud lowers BP and increases blood flow to the heart and oxidizes it too. 


These should have been set the night before when you were trying to sleep. Review them and plan your Day. This will help organize your life for the day.

By the way you should have goals for the Day, Week and Month. Remember those NY Resolutions which you remember only when another NY comes along!


Have the Healthy Stuff like cereals, eggs, nuts, juices and the like. Concentrate on fiber, citrus fruits but add chocolate. These are anti depressants and make you healthy.     

FINALLY take the trouble to look at Yourself in the Mirror and PERK UP – SURE YOU AIN’T  THAT BAD!!!


These Things DO NOT TAKE ANY EXTRA TIME at all. TIME is the Most Valuable Thing each and every Morning because  No One Ever has Time for Any thing every Morning

In line with Desiderata …

Posted on June 2, 2012. Filed under: Guide Posts, Light plus Weighty, Personal Magnetism, Searching for Success |

The most beautiful thing in the world is to see your parents smiling. And to know you are the reason for their smile.

We need to teach our daughters to distinguish between – A man that flatters her and a man that complements her. A man who lusts her and a man who loves her. A man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her. A man who views her as property and a man who views her property. A man who believes he is a gift to women and a man who believes she is a gift to him. And then we need to teach our sons to be that kind of man.

 Our main purpose in life is to help others. So if we cannot help others, at least we should not hurt them. 

Worrying does not  empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. Life always gives a second chance. – it is called tomorrow.

Some day everything will make perfect sense so now laugh at the confusion and smile thru the tears. Keep reminding your self that everything happens for a reason.

The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind. Dear Heart please stop getting involved in any and everything. Your job is to only pump blood.

Forget what hurt you in the past, but do not forget what it taught you. Lead with your heart and your life will follow.

Life is too short to stress your self about people who don’t deserve to be an issue in your life. Only trust those who can see the sorrow behind your smile; the love behind your anger and the reason behind your silence.

Do you know why people cheat and lie? Because it is easy to get forgiveness. 

ANGER is a Feeling that makes your mouth work faster than your Mind. Never put the key to your Happiness in some else’s pocket.

Today be thankful and know how rich you are! Your family is priceless! Your time is gold! Your health is wealth! And your savior is the greatest Treasure of all!

When I was five yrs old, my mom always said that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote happy. They told me that I did not understand the assignment and I told them they did not understand life!

These Magical Three Word Sentences …

Posted on May 12, 2012. Filed under: Guide Posts, Personal Magnetism |

These three word sentences have it all – Culture, Care, Courtesy, consideration, Thoughtfulness and even Courage! There circumstances and implications of the following three word sentences are self evident –

Let me help ………. I’ll Be There ……… .Count on Me;

It’ll be alright ………. Nothing to Worry;

I thank you ……….  Please forgive me;

Maybe you’re right ……….  Maybe I’m  wrong ……….  Agree to disagree;

I understand you ……….  I respect you;

I miss you ………. I love you;

Civilization is based on thoughtfulness. The really cultured are always aware of consideration to others. They also care for quality and style and exhibit gentleness, sweetness, politeness and kindness in the family circle and also outside.

Anticipation is the Soul of Happiness. Everybody including wives and husbands like attention. Neglect any one and they will  and seek it elsewhere.

Avoid fault finding – in marriage too. Errors, mistakes even stupidity cannot be corrected by scolding or offensive action.

All charms are embellishments of manner, of method, of thought and even of feeling. These never fail to lend power and advantage to those that possess them. Charms enforce evenness of action and freedom from friction. They make you appear cool and free from embarrassment. And surprisingly when charm is strong, brain is strong.

Study and practice politeness as an art before the near and dear and before the high and low. Talk to the least of your fellow humans as if you believed them worthy of your attention. Become skilled in the art of etiquette and polished in good breeding.

Sympathy is a Quality of the Heart. Politeness is a Quality of the Mind and Muscles.

Polish is the fairest of all accomplishments. Try and become refined and polished, In private and in front of others. Want of careful conduct to yourself, is important.

Whether alone or in company, take exacting care to behave and speak with the best culture. Diction should be free from coarseness and slang. Private refinement enriches the character. Form the habit of observing yourself and note the faults that will lesson the respect others may have for you.

CHARISMA … Better term is Personal Magnetism!

Posted on April 6, 2012. Filed under: Personal Magnetism, Uncategorized |

There is this article on ‘CHARISMA’ with emphasis on Jedi Mind Tricks’

Evidently a book on the subject has also been published.

This here Post holds a diametrically opposite stance. Here follow our considered beliefs on this little researched subject -which most certainly does not depend upon jedi mind tricks!

Let it be stated at the very outset that personal magnetism or charisma,  is a synonym for self control. All persons who seem to be blessed with personal magnetism always retain mastery over themselves in all circumstances. This is their most distinguishing quality.

They seem to have perfect control over mind and body. They never wear their hearts on their sleeves. It seems that they are masters over themselves as well as over outside events.

Hence it follows that personal magnetism is directly dependent upon the amount of intelligent direction which the mind may give to the entire body – the physical, mental and nervous aspects. Moods and feelings will then appear as slaves and not as masters.

There are a large number of areas which need attention and this even includes what we eat since that affects the body no end.

Personal Magnetism is hence an essence, a quality,  an endowment that comes and goes at will. It is only influenced and controlled by one’s mind and moods. It may however be held within one self by accidental habits which preclude the leaking of one’s vital physical, mental and nervous energies.

Magnetism depends on our moods and feelings. These may control us or we may control them.

Personal magnetism is more or less fleeting in weak characters who lack control over self. One needs to give attention to one’s physical aspect, to ones mind and how it functions and to ones feelings which may be controlled or  be controlling.

Another aspect that needs to be given attention is one’s voice which may itself  attract or repel.

Note Disraeli’s observation that the surest index of character is the voice!
