Personal Development Gives You The Power To Create Miracles (Part 1 of 3)

 

The power of personal development is available to everyone. It is available to you whether you understand its internal workings or not. There is no need to be skilled in self-improvement to achieve amazing results from applying a few simple techniques from its mighty arsenal.

You can, right now, begin to create miracles in your life without ever having to probe the depths of personal growth. Get ready now to learn the secrets of personal development, apply some of its simple techniques and perform miracles in your life!

There are people from every walk of life who are performing miracles every day. You may have heard the stories of a woman lifting the full weight of a car to save her child or a man walking again after years in a wheelchair.

Perhaps you have heard of the British man whose body miraculously cured itself of AIDS or the men and women around the world who have found their cancer dissolve. You may even have heard of stranger things happening in places like India and Tibet.

However, you may be unaware of the miracles that ordinary people, just like you and me, are performing all over the planet. Miracles like, turning financial ruin into avalanches of wealth and abundance, finding soul mates and healing illness.

Miracles are happening right now where men and women are; rekindling failing or failed relationships; healing old emotional wounds that have been carried for decades; finally reaching all there long cherished goals.

Would you like to be one of them?

The power of miracles does not lie in some long and almost forgotten past of avatars and saints. Nor does it lie in some distant mystical land or with metaphysical warriors who had studied ancient hidden arts for decades. The power of miracles lies right here in the present. Your power is in the NOW!

The reason why so many people fail to gain results from tried-and-tested techniques such as visualization, affirmations, hypnosis, subliminal programming etc., is because they are constantly living in the past. They allow hurts from the past to impinge upon the present. Every negative thought or feeling that you have is based in the past.

It is experiences that you had in your past that lead you to form that way of thinking and feeling. You must learn to release these hurts.

The Other Side of Setbacks

 

American swimmer Dara Torres had a remarkable career. She appeared in five different Olympics from 1984 to 2008.

Late in her career, Torres broke the US record for the 50-meter freestyle – 25 years after she herself set that record, but it wasn’t always the medals and records.

She also encountered a lot of obstacles in her athletic career. Failure after another, mistakes after mistakes, injuries, surgery, and being almost twice the age of most other competitors.

She said, “I’ve wanted to win at everything, every day, since I was a kid.., I’m also aware that setbacks have upside; they fuel new dreams.”

“Setbacks have an upside” is a great life lesson. Her struggles motivated her to reach for new heights.

Romans 5:3-5 states that “… we also rejoice in sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance produces character, and character produces hope. And hope does not disappoint us…” The Apostle James also told us “consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you encounter trials of many kinds, because you know that testing of your faith develops perseverance. Allow perseverance to finish its work…”

Adopting this perseverance on the difficulties of life is not easy, but worthwhile. Trials provide opportunity to deepen our relationship with God. They also teach lessons that success cannot by developing the kind of patience that waits on God and trust Him for the strength to endure.

I remember an excerpt from one of my prayers when I was in one of the darkest days of my life way back then,

“Lord, I hope my prayers will be answered tomorrow, else I could die, but if it remains a ‘no’ until tomorrow and I am still alive, teach me to be more patient and help me to understand more Your reasons, though the same reasons I may not know until tomorrow or the next month or the next decade. All I know is that what is happening at this very moment is for my own sake and my family’s welfare, so that I can share this experience to anyone in the future, so that Your light will shine to others through me, even at darkness”.

Make Friends with Failure

 

There’s no gainsaying that success brings happiness and satisfaction. It’s the fulfillment of a goal for putting in the best of your efforts and time. As each second and minute passes by, all you can think of is how to fulfill that goal. Each step taking in the right direction is a milestone, and a step gone wrong can have devastating consequences, and possibly lead to failure.

 

The sense of achievement and joy attained on reaching a goal is unparalleled. However, success without failure is not possible. A successful man can only lay a firm foundation using bricks that were thrown at him.
Even the minutest of our daily task involves success and failure. Take for instance, getting to your place of work on time, in spite of obstacles, is a goal in itself. Though achieving this goal may be a small success, but it is significant enough to get your day started in the right direction. When you fail to achieve this small target, taunts and insults set in. This tends to have a domino effect on all the activities of the day.

 

It is important to note that each step in life, regardless of how small, is important. So also is success and failure. Wondering how failure is important? The truth about failure is that it makes you stronger; it gives you inspiration (and remember, inspiration is always better than motivation!), strength and ultimately, helps you to LEARN.
