The brain is a small but most powerful organ of the body that controls all our thinking, feelings, actions, emotions and much more. This small organ is made up of billions of neurons that grow with proper diet and exercise. Your success very much depends on the sharpness of your mind, improved memory and thinking skills. Take care of your brain and enjoy a successful life.

I am giving below some tips that will help you to substantially increase your brain powers:

What do you say about yourself? Are you a happy person? If your reply is in negative then you need to think over it. All your education, intelligence, money, status and success is meaningless if you are not living a happy life. What is the reason of living if a person is not happy with his life?

It's been said that a smile is the lighting system of the face, the cooling system of the head and the heating system of the heart. But a smile is also a powerful weapon against toxic attitudes of all kinds.

Lisa Gurnsey, of Portland, Oregon, wrote to me about a man whose smile quite literally changed her life: "I was having a horrible day -- hating my job, tired of the weather, tired of trying to keep up on bills, and just completely stressed out. I stopped at the post office in the morning and, as I was entering, an older business man commented to me that it was going

A young woman was filling out an application for college when she came across the question: Are you a leader? She thought she had better be brutally honest, so she answered, "No." She was convinced when she sent the application in that she'd never hear from them because of that answer.

But she received a letter back from the school that read: "We have reviewed numerous applications and, to date, there will be some 1,452 new leaders attending school next year. We have decided to accept your application because we felt it was imperative that they have at least one follower."

There are many ways of classifying the human mind and its ability to retain information. One of the most often used classifications are based on the duration of memory retention, specifically the sensory, short term and long term memory. Short term memory refers to the recent memory, and is usually only held for a very short period of time. A common example would be when you meet many new people, cursorily introduced at a party. Long term memory, on the other hand, can be thought of as a database where all the information that you have learnt is kept.

They may not be physically fatal, but panic attacks can destroy your life. You may be pushed to a secluded lonely life when you do not deal with the attacks. What's worse, when you don't do something about your panic attacks, you'll have to continuously battle with the hideous monsters in your mind and body. This alone can drain the very life out of you. The good news is you can stop panic attacks. The better news is that there are practical things you can do without spending your hard-earned money to effectively deal with the monsters in your body and mind.

You are the most important person on earth. Yes, you are, without any doubt. You are the one and the only person you know better than anybody else.

You are a Talented Person

It’s a fact that you are a talented person, whether you admit it or not. I sincerely believe that every child is born with some kind of God gifted talent. It is upto individuals to discover their hidden talents. However, one needs to work hard to polish his/her talents. You must avail every opportunity to prove your worth as a talented person.

Do Justice to Yourself

This is the last month of the year 2016. Are you physically, mentally and emotionally charged to say HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017? Are you ready to start the New Year in a big way? Do you want to make 2017 the best year of your life?

Before the start of the New Year, do necessary cleaning during this month so that you begin 2017 with a clean mind, clean body, clean environment, clean thinking, clean conscious, and a clean soul. Cleanliness attracts success and success brings happiness in life.

The areas which need your special attention are:

1. Clean Your Mind

Groucho Marx quipped, "Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others." Though he is joking, I wonder if he is actually hitting close to home. I need to regularly check in with myself and ask questions like, "Is the thing I'm doing now guided by sound principles?

Principled people are the heart and soul of a society. But whoteaches our young people about character? Who teaches them howimportant it is to be honest and to do what is right?

How long can you go without speaking?

How long can you go without THINKING?

Can you look at an object and not say in your mind what it is?

Practice the Meditation technique below for two weeks. After the two weeks are up ask yourself the same questions.

How long can you now go without thinking?

Can you look at an object and not identify it?

My guess is that you will be able to go much longer without thinking and are starting to realize the uselessness and waste of time of mentally identifying everything you touch see and hear.
