Do You Know How to Achieve Extraordinary
Yourself is the most critical variable of your
achieving what you
want. You can't control
people or events, but you can manage your response to them. Your skill and
our ability to manage yourself directly affect the extent to which you
achieve your goals.
COCA Principle of Achievement
"Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you." – Nathaniel Hawthorne...
Yin and Yang of Happiness
Become the Master Gardener of Your Mind
"A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which
may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether
cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth...
Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping
it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits, which he requires,
so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong,
useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers
an fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts. By pursuing this process, a
man sooner or later discovers that he is the master
gardener of his soul, the director of his life. He also reveals, within
himself, the laws of thought, and
understands, with ever-increasing accuracy, how the thought-forces and
mind-elements operate in shaping his character, circumstances, and destiny."
– James Allen5

essential for success, but these are secondary, not primary traits. "You can
pick up quick, easy techniques that may work in short-term situations.
secondary traits alone have no permanent worth in long-term relationships.
Eventually, if there isn't deep integrity and fundamental character
strength, the challenges of life will cause true motives to surface and
human relationships failure will replace short-term success1".
Only basic goodness gives life to techniques.
To achieve great results, focus first on yourself - your deepest motives and
perceptions - and then on your techniques.
