After reading one or two articles, you might develop an appetite for the remaining articles. If you find this publication useful, you are welcome to give copies to your friends. I have included links to sources of additional information, including the sales page for my ebook. This ebook expands on the information in this publication. I believe this free publication and my low-cost ebook can start you on a life-changing journey of achievement. This reminds me of that old saying, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” After receiving my revelations, I was able to turn my life completely around. This was quite an accomplishment because my working life had been a big disappointment. After retirement, I changed my focus in life to writing articles, publishing an ebook, and setting up a free blog and website. Considering my own accomplishments based on these revelations, I am assuming that they can be of great help to other people. Good luck on your future life.
After retiring and reviewing my mediocre career, I was disappointed with myself. There had to be some way to improve things. Looking back, I remembered receiving three unexpected gifts from the universe. I never knew why I received them. Was some greater power nudging me to improve myself? Perhaps, perhaps not—after all, I’m just an ordinary person. But then again, you never know what special gifts might await you in life. Then, I did the unthinkable. I asked the universe for help. It took about a year to receive and understand the forthcoming revelations. They showed me the source of my problems and appropriate solutions for them. Also, they revealed how to overcome the various blocking forces that can keep people from completing difficult tasks or achieving worthwhile goals. Here are my breakthrough revelations: Your accepted beliefs (true or false) largely determine what you can achieve in life. Empowering beliefs lead to achievements and success in life. Limiting beliefs are the biggest obstacle to achievements and success in life. You can overcome the undue influence of limiting beliefs by offsetting them with empowering beliefs. You can control your destiny by accepting responsibility for your own bad habits, false beliefs, mistakes, and problems—and then correcting them when appropriate. Although these revelations may seem to be obvious truths, many people do not realize their importance or use them to help improve their lives. Also, they led me to the following insights and related common knowledge. 5
My Revelations Here are the accompanying insights from my personal experiences: Your subconscious mind, properly trained, can give you enormous power. Your subconscious mind has to be convinced you’re serious before it will help you. Here are examples of related common knowledge that, together with the above revelations and insights, can be used to improve your life: Your beliefs reside in your subconscious mind. Most of your limiting beliefs were acquired during your childhood and early adulthood, and thus may no longer reflect your current abilities and possibilities in life. Various techniques are available to instill new beliefs into your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind contains a vast storehouse of knowledge. Your subconscious mind is capable of great creative power. Yet I wondered if these insights could actually improve my own life. Therefore, I put the revelations to the test. I had been working on some ideas to help people improve their lives. However, I kept running into roadblocks. This project was beyond my existing abilities, or so I thought. Then, as I began using these revelations, the floodgates of empowerment opened for me. I used visualizations and affirmations to replace my limiting beliefs and attitudes with empowering ones. I trained my subconscious mind, that powerhouse of creativity, and put it to full use. The guidelines, insights, and methods from these revelations have transformed my life. These revelations, and my struggles in understanding them, are further described in this ebook.
How I Changed My Life and Started Living My Dreams
This article explains the transformation I underwent after receiving and acting on my revelations. It is hard to believe that an ordinary person like little old me could redirect his life so completely. Anyway, this is how this change happened. My life before the change Before the change, I had limited ambition and tended not to accept responsibility for my problems in life. I didn’t always consider the beliefs and desires of other people. I thought that my own personal beliefs and desires were all that mattered in life. How the change happened to me After retirement, I looked back on my life and was disappointed with my lack of achievements and failure to use my natural talents effectively. I wanted something better for the rest of my life. However, I didn’t know how to turn my life around. At some point, I recalled receiving some unusual experiences that seemed to be gifts from the universe. Therefore, in desperation, I asked the universe for help in showing me what to do with my life. My struggles during the change After about a year, I started receiving some revelations. However, I did not accept these ideas or fully understand them at first. You see, they were very different from my existing beliefs and the rules of conventional wisdom. Nevertheless, I was desperate to improve my life so I tried experimenting with these insights. The revelations mainly concerned the interaction of beliefs and the subconscious mind. The breakthrough came after I began inserting various empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind. 7
How I Changed My Life and Started Living My Dreams My life after the change Some of the most powerful changes were visualizations that gave me courage and energy on command. With these new powers, I was able to complete a project I had started but could not finish. This project, an ebook, if finished could help people to a better life. The publication of this ebook was the first step in living the dreams for my new life. I haven’t completely changed my lifestyle or beliefs yet. I’m taking one goal at a time. From now on though I merely have to decide on what I want for a better life. Then I can give myself whatever new beliefs may be required. Example of gaining personal empowerment Late in my working life, I wanted to have a more forceful, take-charge attitude. I used the following affirmation to implant these new beliefs into my subconscious mind: “I am forceful and confident. I have a take-charge attitude.” Please notice that this affirmation is stated in the present tense, as if you already possess these new attitudes. You also have to fire up your emotions when voicing these affirmations. You see, your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between reality, and impressions that are repetitive and have high emotional content. During each session, I repeated this affirmation aloud five times. I did two or three sessions each day. I was new to this idea of using affirmations to change myself. Therefore, I didn’t expect much to happen. However, after the first week, my actions and attitudes started to change. I was bolder and more confident. I felt more at ease when interviewing clients. I stopped using the affirmations after a few weeks. I didn’t want to become too aggressive - after all, I was an accountant, not a prize fighter. Making your own change You can learn more about instilling empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind from my magical ebook available at this sales page.
Use Empowering Beliefs to Achieve Success in Life
There is a power people have that often lies dormant in their subconscious mind. Yet this power could turn their life around, if only they knew how to use it. This article describes this mysterious power and shows how to activate it. Warning—this information is not for the faint of heart. When using this power, you must take sole responsibility for everything—good or bad—that happens. I am only revealing the secrets of this greatest power in stages. I hope that this will help you to better understand and accept these strange ideas. However, you don’t have to rely on my words. You can prove or disprove these concepts yourself. You just need to follow the steps shown at the end of this article. The incredible power of the subconscious mind The human brain has two separate minds—the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. These two minds have very different purposes. For example, let’s see what happens when you open your eyes in the morning. Using your conscious mind, you can observe your surroundings with little or no effort. Meanwhile, your subconscious mind is performing an incredible amount of work. It uses the electrical signals from the optic nerve, together with previously stored information, to resolve these electrical signals into various objects. Then it sends these images, together with any related emotions, to your conscious mind. Your conscious mind, which is not aware of this activity of the subconscious mind, simply receives these images and any related emotions. “What’s the big deal?” you may ask. I’ll show you. I’m going to blindfold you and then hand you a bundle of wires. Now using only the electrical signals from this bundle of wires identify the objects in front of you. While we’re at it, tell me if any of these objects are dangerous or remind you of joyful experiences. Can’t do it, can you? 9
Use Empowering Beliefs to Achieve Success in Life All I want you to understand right now is that your subconscious mind has fantastic abilities, which it performs mostly in secret. Contrasting the achievers with ordinary people Before receiving my revelations, I often wondered why people with the same education, intelligence, and (apparent) ambition achieve such different results in life. Some factors might have affected some of these achievers. They might have received help from influential family members. They might have stumbled onto an opportunity and taken advantage of it. Maybe they were just lucky, good looking, or had some secret driving force. Personally, I vote for the secret driving force. I think people make their own luck. Have you seen pictures of some rich people? A lot of them are just plain ugly. (Well, probably not movie stars or most other entertainers.) How your beliefs determine your success in life The beliefs held in your subconscious mind determine how your brain interprets the world around you, and your ability to achieve success in it. Thus, if you believe that a certain goal isn’t possible for you, then you probably won’t even try for it. So, if you want to know the nature of your own beliefs, just look around at your surroundings. These surroundings are determined by your beliefs. Do you live in a mansion and drive a fancy car? Unless you inherited your money, your beliefs are very empowering. As for any other type of surroundings, well they just reflect your current beliefs. (Did you notice that I said your current beliefs?) How the achievers obtained their empowering beliefs In general, people acquire their beliefs from their experiences in childhood. Therefore, if you had supportive parents who achieved their own success in life, they probably instilled those empowering beliefs in you. As for everybody else, well you get the picture. There are other ways that some people might have developed powerful beliefs. Actions can lead people to change their beliefs. Thus, they might have had inspiring goals that they tried for and achieved. They might have been faced with desperate conditions and were able to surmount hem. Maybe they wanted to make their parents or other loved ones proud of their 10
Use Empowering Beliefs to Achieve Success in Life achievements. Maybe they just wanted to be rich, and were willing to do whatever it takes. How you can develop empowering beliefs However, I have written this article so that ordinary people can achieve empowering beliefs. This can be accomplished by various means. You can use affirmations to trick your subconscious mind into believing whatever you wish. You can use physical actions to show your subconscious mind that you are a dynamic and forceful person. You can use visualizations to fool your subconscious mind into believing that you are already successful. You may ask, “Isn’t this cheating?” Maybe it is in a way, but so what! You certainly aren’t hurting anyone else. Putting empowering beliefs into action The following roadmap shows how to put empowering beliefs into action in achieving a goal. Use these steps in the order shown. Each step makes the following step easier to accomplish. Knowing what to do – There’s an old saying, “If you don’t know where you want to go, you’ll probably end up somewhere else.” So to start on your journey to success, first decide where you want to go. If you have any dreams for a better life, set a goal that will start you on your journey. You can decide to start a small business, improve your performance at work, or just get a tough job done. It’s all up to you, my friend. Overcoming any barriers to action – These barriers to action can keep you from trying to improve your life. For example, you may want to try starting your own business, but something is holding you back. Maybe it’s a belief buried in your subconscious mind. The belief might be, “Keep in your own place. Don’t try to be something better.” If this is your problem, you can instill empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. Then you can probably overcome this barrier to action. Other barriers to action are a lack of cash, knowledge, or skills. You need to find ways to obtain whatever is needed. For example, you could save money by reading about bootstrap methods on my free website. If you lack knowledge, you could search for the needed information on the Internet. If 11
Use Empowering Beliefs to Achieve Success in Life you lack skills, you could work for someone as an intern or apprentice. (When my brother decided to be a bartender, he worked several weeks for free to get the needed experience.) “Where there is a will, there is a way.” A simple truth, and yet so powerful. Taking decisive action – By decisive action, I mean action that is effective. Action that gets the desired results. For starters, I recommend that you complete any planning required. This planning might be a formal work plan that shows the task requirements (such as the desired results), any advance preparations, activities of main task, and final activities. It can be either a one-page summary or a detailed plan that explains all required action steps. Correcting any problems – (Note: I define a problem as something that you may not recognize right away and may not know how to fix.) Whenever you take on a new or difficult task, you might run into problems. However, solving problems gives you useful experience and self-confidence. When people want a tough job done, they want someone with useful experience. They want someone who has faced up to problems and solved them. Other people probably have faced and solved similar problems. You just need to search for their solutions on the Internet. Verifying the end results – This is the final step. You review the final results and make any needed corrections. Thus, if the goal you completed did not achieve the desired results, you may want to go back and try for better results. Keep in mind though, that just completing the goal is a victory in itself. It should increase your abilities, experiences, and self-confidence.
Conquering the Reality Illusion
This article explains the main reason that people lack the personal power needed to make their dreams come true. By conquering the reality illusion, the main barrier to success, you are ready to start increasing your personal power. Warning - you may not be willing to accept the awful truth! To get the greatest benefit from this article, you would have to: Have an open mind Know what you want from life Be willing to take limited risks Use trial and error to gather the experience you need So let us first examine this thing I call the reality illusion. First, let me give a few comparisons: There is reality and then there are beliefs; they are NOT the same. There are facts and then there are opinions; they are NOT the same. Yet beliefs and opinions are very difficult to dispense with. In many cases, you simply cannot do without them. They help you get through life with the least amount of effort in knowing what to do. They help you belong to a particular social group. In addition, if you don’t belong to a group then living can be difficult, even if you know the true nature of life and reality. So, assuming you can buy into my above assertions, what can you possibly do to improve your life? Glad you asked me! Following is my solution to this universal problem. This is the way human nature works. According to the German philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer, “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being selfevident.” Holy smoke! What is going on here? How can people be so devious and spiteful?
Conquering the Reality Illusion Well, human nature is human nature. Any newly discovered truth is ridiculed at first because it opposes the status quo, the conventional wisdom, or more accurately, the accepted beliefs of society. These beliefs have been implanted in the subconscious minds of most people, either from parents and society, or from great institutions of learning. Moreover, once a belief has been locked into the subconscious mind it is very difficult to oppose it. Then when a newly discovered truth begins to attract support from some people, it becomes a threat to the livelihood or entrenched belief system of other people. This is when it is violently opposed. Gradually the detractors either die off or are forced to change their beliefs when the new truth shows superior results to the old truth. Young people entering society may only be aware of this new truth and simply accept it as being self-evident. So if you become aware of a new truth, such as the message in this article, keep it to yourself. If you tell other people, it may only upset them. Moreover, if you go around blabbing about this new truth people may regard you as a screwball. You see, you are violating the accepted beliefs of society. That is a definite no-no, unless you don’t mind being a hermit or an outcast. As you might have guessed, the reality illusion refers to the false nature of some common beliefs. More specifically, it is the false nature of your own limiting beliefs that keep you from taking decisive action to improve your life. So what are these false beliefs? They are the things you might have heard while growing up. Things like, “Don’t try to be better than other people,” “Keep in your place,” and (my favorite) “Don’t rock the boat!” Yes, I struggled with these same limiting beliefs most of my life. Besides which I could be just plain lazy on occasion. Don’t believe me? Just ask some of my former bosses. They will be happy to tell you all my many shortcomings. So, if you are wondering whether you can change your life, look at my example. I was a sad case. Not much ambition, just plenty of excuses. Yet by gaining new beliefs and losing old beliefs, I was able to turn my life around. If I can do it then almost anyone should be able to do it.
Conquering the Reality Illusion Once you have replaced some of your limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs, you are ready to take constructive actions to reach for your dreams. Following are examples of those constructive actions: Taking charge of your life Deciding what you want from life Setting meaningful goals Overcoming common obstacles to action Making suitable plans Taking decisive action Checking on your progress Correcting any problems Reviewing the final results Are you willing to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind and then start taking these constructive actions? If you are, my hat is off to you. You are a very special person! Good luck on your quest for a better life.

Gain Personal Empowerment Using My Revelations
There are special exercises and methods you can use to increase your personal empowerment. This will allow you to overcome common difficulties, such as bad economic conditions. I discovered these secrets by receiving a series of revelations a few years ago. These revelations gave me the ambition and knowledge to overcome the tedium of my retirement years. I believe they can be helpful to you as well. You may not accept the following information. These insights may confuse you. They may even insult you. This is to be expected when you read any life-changing assertions. Here is my confession. Before these revelations, I had not done much with my life. I let many opportunities slip away. Moreover, I tended to blame outside forces for my difficulties and failures. After I finally understood and accepted these revelations, my life took on a new meaning. Now I have a worthwhile goal to guide my actions. Moreover, I have finally accepted total responsibility for whatever happens to me. Now it is your turn. It is up to you whether you want to improve your life or maintain the status quo. If you think you are beyond salvation, think again. These revelations have empowered my beliefs and my life. I believe they can do the same for you. How beliefs affect your life The centerpiece of these revelations is that your beliefs determine or strongly influence the conditions of your life. The successes and failures you encounter in life are largely due to your beliefs. These beliefs reside in your subconscious mind. They determine how your subconscious mind interprets reality. Thus if you believe that certain goals are not possible you likely won’t try for them. On the other hand, if you do attempt them and then run into difficulties, you probably will give up. 16
Gain Personal Empowerment Using My Revelations Here is another important part of my revelations. Beliefs are not reality. Beliefs can be changed. You can overcome your limiting beliefs by injecting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. These new beliefs then will alter how your subconscious mind interprets reality. What before had seemed impossible can become possible. How can this be so, you might wonder? After all, you are what you are. No, it is more accurate to say that you are what your beliefs have made you. However, since your beliefs reside in your subconscious mind, it can be very difficult to detect and root out the false beliefs. However, there is a way to discover your current beliefs. You need only review your conditions in life. Beliefs have guided your actions and your actions have produced these results. Limiting beliefs yield average life conditions. Empowering beliefs yield superior life conditions. This is simple cause and effect. How to change your beliefs Over the years, some special people have developed empowering beliefs. Some of these people were aware of what they were doing and have described their methods. Other people were unaware of the importance of their empowering beliefs. They may simply have believed that they were superior to other people. However, their superior beliefs may have come from a childhood with a nourishing family life of achievers and/or an empowering education at prestigious institutions. Other people may have strived relentlessly for great achievements, and consequently gained empowering beliefs. Finally, some people who have faced and overcome life-threatening conditions may have then realized that they are capable of greater things in life. However, you can use one or more of the following methods to deliberately gain empowering beliefs. Visualize yourself as a different person; the kind of person you want to be. A visualization is a guided daydream. For example, it might show you acting with courage and self-confidence in a difficult situation. Try to enhance the visualization with vivid details and positive emotions. This will help instill these new beliefs into your subconscious mind. You see, your subconscious can’t tell the difference between reality and a powerful visualization that is repeated many times. 17
Gain Personal Empowerment Using My Revelations Use an Affirmation to instill new beliefs into your subconscious mind. An affirmation is a statement that you read aloud to yourself several times each day. Again, you want to feel positive emotions when repeating this affirmation. The affirmation should be a statement that you currently possess one or more powerful traits. Don’t state that you intent to develop these traits in the future. Instead, state that you already have these traits. You might say, “I am ambitious and self-confident,” for example. Display powerful traits in your everyday life. These traits eventually become a habit that your subconscious mind will use to control your future actions. You might wonder if you are lying to your subconscious mind by using these methods. Let’s say that you are, so what! Your subconscious mind is your obedient slave, if you train it properly. Warning Be reasonable in your aspirations at first. You might think that you have become a Superman or Wonder Woman, but some tough thug you meet at night might disagree.
Train Your Subconscious Mind to Summon Bursts of Energy
Sometimes you don’t have the energy needed to start or resume an important task. However, you can train your subconscious mind to give you a burst of energy on demand. This may be all you need to get going on that special task. Once you start a task, it is human nature to continue working, at least for a few hours. After that, you may need another burst of energy. This article shows how to use a simple exercise to train your subconscious mind. This exercise uses a visualization, a guided daydream. Your subconscious can’t tell the difference between reality, and impressions that are repetitive and highly emotional. You should repeat the visualization and infuse it with strong emotions. Procedures You need to write out and learn a scene that shows you receiving a burst of energy. Don’t be concerned if this scene seems somewhat silly. This is a mind game, so approach it as if you were a child playing a game. After all, your subconscious mind is childlike in many respects. However, properly trained, it can provide all the energy you need. After describing and learning a particular scene for this visualization, close your eyes and see it played out inside your mind. Let your emotions build while the scene unfolds. Here is a possible scene: You are alone on a vast plain. A warm summer sun caresses your face. There is no sound except for a soft breeze rustling the grass at your feet. Then you look up into the sky and raise your hands, asking the universe for the gift of unlimited energy. Soon the sky is filled with dark clouds and the sound of thunder! Just then, a bolt of lightning flashes down from the clouds and enters your body. You are filled with a fiery energy. Zap, zap—you can feel the electricity coursing through your body. Pop, pop—the energy is unbelievable! 19
Train Your Subconscious Mind to Summon Bursts of Energy You feel alive like never before. Whatever you want to do is now in your power. You have the energy to overcome any obstacle. Your ambition is boundless. Nothing can stop you now! You survey the scene around you and smile. The air is vibrant and alive with possibilities. Gazing up into the sky again, you give thanks for this gift. You seem to know, without being told, that this power is available whenever you need it. Repeat this visualization three times a day for two weeks. Then use it once a day until the idea of having unlimited energy at your command starts feeling normal. Testing and using this new power Create a command you will use to summon the burst of energy. A good choice might be, “Energy Now!” If you sometimes aren’t able to call forth the burst of energy, then go back and start doing the exercise again. Remember, this is a mind game. If you feel silly doing this, just think of how you will feel after you have successfully trained your subconscious mind. Test this new power on some of those small, distasteful tasks around the home or office. Use your command to summon the burst of energy. Then immediately start working on the task. Act in a deliberate, forceful manner. After completing the task, allow yourself to feel the pleasure of being able to call forth the energy needed to get the job done. Continue this procedure with more difficult tasks. Gradually, using this burst of energy will become a habit. Then you can take on those tough jobs knowing you will have the energy to complete them. My own experience with taking on difficult or unpleasant tasks is that once I begin taking action I start to enjoy the activity. I think it’s human nature to enjoy working on important activities and getting things done. At least, that has been my experience. I even enjoy taking the garbage out and washing the dishes. Before we sold all our rental units, I helped the family clean up a vacated rental unit. Once I started, I didn’t want to quit until the job was finished. 20
Train Your Subconscious Mind to Summon Bursts of Energy Precaution If you are ill or have some kind of physical handicap, take care of that problem first. Once you are in good health, you can begin using the above exercise. Final thoughts Being able to summon energy on demand can be a big help in getting the tough jobs done. However, you must always use caution and common sense. If a task is dangerous or risky, maybe you shouldn’t be trying to do it in the first place. Also, don’t overwork yourself. Sure, you may have lots of energy, but you’re not Hercules. Don’t try to do more than you are physically able to do. Ready to improve you life?

Train Your Subconscious Mind to Give You Courage
You can gain courage by training your subconscious mind in a special way. This exercise is simple to do, but is very powerful. You see, your subconscious will accept and act on any impressions it receives that are repetitive and highly emotional. This training can help improve your life. However, the success or failure of this exercise, and any resulting actions, is your responsibility. When doing the training it is important to adopt the mind of a child. This is a mind game you are playing. Put away your stern adult attitude. Let yourself feel your emotions. Follow these instructions as if you were a playful child. Doing the visualization You will use a special visualization to send powerful impressions to your subconscious mind. A visualization is a guided daydream. After describing and learning a particular scene for this visualization, close your eyes and see it played out. Let your emotions build while the scene unfolds. Here is a possible scene: You are an old-time doctor (or nurse) hurrying through a jungle to treat a patient. The patient lives in a village on the other side of the jungle. He is very sick and needs your help urgently. Suddenly a large tiger blocks your path. The tiger growls at you, baring its teeth. At first, you freeze as fear grips your body. Then you remember your duty to the patient. So, you begin to feel anger at the tiger that is blocking your path. As your anger builds, your fear begins to subside and is replaced by a feeling of courage. Your anger and courage fill your body, forcing you to take action. You pick up a large stick from the jungle floor. You swing the stick vigorously, beating the vines on either side of the path. The tiger stands its ground, its tail twitching back and forth. 22
Train Your Subconscious Mind to Give You Courage Now a fiery rage takes control of your body. It grows stronger and stronger. Finally, you lunge at the tiger, screaming loudly. Bewildered, the tiger flinches and runs away. You pause to let your rage slowly die away. Then you let yourself feel deep satisfaction at your ability to face down the great beast. Repeat this visualization at least twice a day for two or three weeks. You can stop this visualization when you have obtained a sufficient amount of courage. If you need to increase your courage in the future, you can resume this visualization exercise. Testing and using your new attitude Now that you have increased your courage, you need to try it out. Then you can use it to improve your life. Here are some suggestions: Eating new foods or trying a different restaurant Joining new social groups or volunteering for charitable work Finding other ways to test your courage Always acting in a courageous manner, even when you don’t feel courageous Increasing your comfort zone by learning new skills or trying new activities Taking on new challenges and goals to improve your life After performing each new activity let yourself feel the excitement of conquering your fears and displaying your courage. Precautions In overcoming fear, do not completely eliminate it. You need a certain amount of fear to protect you from the hazards of life and conform to expected social behavior. Just eliminate unnecessary or excessive fear. You must be careful not to get yourself into any dangerous situations. Your subconscious mind may think that you are superman or wonder woman. However, your conscious mind knows better. So, a word to the wise—use caution and common sense.
