Here is List of The Top 200 Secrets of Success and the Pillars of Self-Mastery suggested by Robin S. Sharma who is The Author of the best seller The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
161. Each day, do two things that you do not like doing. This may be the preparation of a
report you have been putting off or shining your shoes. It does not matter how small the
task, just do it! Soon these chores will not seem so bad, your personal power will increase
and your productivity will soar. Try it because this is an age-old technique for building
strength of character.
162. True happiness comes from only one thing: achievement of goals, whether they are
personal, professional or otherwise. You are happiest when you feel you are growing.
When you feel that you are contributing and advancing in the direction of your dreams,
you will notice that you have boundless energy and vitality. Time spent on activities
which offer little reward aside from a fleeting feeling of relaxation (television watching is
the best example), is time lost forever. Relaxation is essential but chose the most effective
means of renewal and spend your time in productive pursuits that will slowly move you
along the path of accomplishment. Happiness comes from doing - not sleeping.
163. Napoleon III of France had a special ability to remember the names of all those he met.
His secret was to say "so sorry, I missed your name" after being introduced to a new
person. This would cause the name to be repeated and reinforced within his memory. If
the name was difficult, he would ask for the proper spelling.
164. The sages of China have held a basic life philosophy for thousands of years: develop an
indomitable spirit along with courtesy and integrity. The repetition of these three traits
will make you an exceptionally powerful individual respected by all. Exert your effort
and personal influence to attain these qualities.
165. A valuable technique for defeating negative and self-limiting thoughts that can hamper
you from attaining peak performance is the mental interrupt device. When a negative
thought enters your consciousness, first you must become aware of it and have a strong
desire to remove it for good. To do this, interrupt the negative train of thought by doing
something to break and banish the self-limiting pattern. When the bad thought enters, you
may pinch yourself and say, "I am strong and weak thoughts are gone", or you may shout
out loud or do anything that will divert your attention and remove the negative focus. By
practising this technique, you will see a marked decrease in the negative thoughts that
most people have, paving the way to the mindset of a true winner.
166. Taking time from your busy work and family schedule to focus on personal growth
activities is essential and is never to be considered a waste. Taking one hour from your
hectic morning to watch kids playing in a nearby park or to take a brisk walk might seem
like a poor use of time to some. But by making more time for life's simple pleasures and
bringing more balance into your day, you will make the remaining hours far more
productive and effective. You cannot do good unless you feel good. When you are
serene, relaxed and enthusiastic you are also more productive, creative and dynamic. This
is something that has been proved time and time again and yet we consistently get caught
up in the apparent immediacy of our routine and fail to see the forest for the trees.
167. Read more, learn more, laugh more and love more.
168. Pick five relationships that you desire to improve over the next six months. Write out the
names of these people and under each name detail why you want to improve the
relationship, how you plan to do so and in what time frame. This is simply another facet
of goal setting - the practice which will always yield excellent results in any of life's
fields. Be committed to being a better parent, friend and citizen. Be creative in the steps
you take to show your appreciation and respect for your loved ones. Sending notes is fine
but consider unique and thoughtful measures ranging from a romantic picnic in the
country with your partner to an early morning fishing trip with an old friend.
169. Remember the power of prayer.
170. An excellent investment in your personal growth is the six tape series of Reverend
Norman Vincent Peale entitled "The Power of Positive Thinking". Get it and listen to it
over and over. It is packed full of strategies and techniques that, without fail, will ensure
that you live a long, happy, productive and prosperous life.
