Introduction Mind is extremely powerful. One who has conquered his mind can control anything in the world. Once you conquer your mind, you become a totally transformed person, always peaceful and cheerful. No person and no situation on the earth can deflect you. You are the king and have the power to turn even the greatest odds towards positivity. You are a source of light and power for whoever comes in contact with you. In today’s life, almost all our agonies and pains are due to our not having proper control over our mind. Instead of mastering our mind, we have become the slaves of it. Unless we restore our master status and overcome our mind, we are bound to be unhappy and stressed. Understanding mind and its power has now become a necessity of the society. Mind powers cannot be generated, as they already exist in every human being. Each individual has been endowed with equal powers of the mind. The difference is in the way of different people using them. Most of the people are not even aware of such powers. These powers can perform wonders. The proof of the existence of such powers can be seen when we go back in the ancient times. It was the time when people were able to
9 |Page remember matters without noting them and know the happenings of a distant place without any cell phone or television. These powers exist even today. However, due to the development of technology, exposure and competition, human has become dependable, weak and has lost himself along with his powers in the hustle and bustle of life. Human has made himself weak and has cultivated various mental diseases like lack of confidence, frustration depression or any other. However, all this mental diseases can be overcome and u can retain your mental power with a little practice and determination. It’s never too late. You can become the master of your mind and life and enter the path of happiness, peace and successful living.

THE FUNDAMENTALS The human mind possesses immense powers. You aren't even aware of the powers that your mind is possessing. However, before knowing those powers, we first need to understand how does our mind work, how can we change are mentality and moreover, what mind is. On meeting the student who grabbed 1st rank in the class, a teenager who topped the university or an adult successfully running a big business empire, the thoughts that arise in our mind are 'He is very intelligent', 'His mind is very sharp' and 'His brain is very powerful'. Here, we need to understand that mind, brain and intelligence are three different aspects.
13 | P a g e Brain is a physical organ like any other organ of the human body. If you see the diagram of the human body, you can easily find brain as the top-most organ. It’s an organ of the body that is visible and has a structure. The function of this body organ is to send orders to each part of the body to perform in a particular manner. Therefore, if your body is functioning properly, it is because your brain is functioning properly. Each body part is connected with a portion of the brain from where it gets the orders to perform in a certain manner. Hence, if a body part is not working properly, the problem is not in that part, but on that portion of the brain from where it is connected. If you find a physically challenged person, one whose hand is not working or who can't stand on his legs and analyze the problem, you shall find that there is nothing wrong with his body parts but the defect is on certain portion of the brain from where the limbs are connected. There could be various reasons for the defect on the brain. • Lack of oxygen at the time of birth • Less supply of blood to the brain • Black spot on the brain • Injuries on the brain Therefore, physically you are normal; it is because your brain is working properly. It is very important for our brain to work powerfully as only due to it we shall be able to work in a proper manner. If we want our brain to work in an effective
14 | P a g e manner, we need to eat nutritious food. Proper intake of food is very necessary for the proper working of the brain. Weakness in the body, low energy level, sleeping disorders is the few problems faced if the brain is not supplied proper nutrients. This states that brain is totally related with our physical appearance, strength and abilities. There is a system working inside this brain. This system is our MIND. Each body-organ has a function to perform. Now, the function of the eyes is to see. The organ (eyes) is visible but the eyesight is abstract. Eyesight is not visible. In the same way, brain is visible, but the mind that is working inside the brain is invisible.
MIND Mind can be defined as a system or a process running inside the brain. It is not an organ. It is not visible nor is it having a structure. Being non-physical, it has no weight nor can it be quantified in any measurement. One's mentality totally depends on the working of the mind. As the physical functioning of the body depends on the brain in the same way the mental working depends on the mind. Our mentality, behaviour, character and attitude, all is dependent on the working of the mind.
15 | P a g e Now, the question is, how does the mind work? As explained earlier, mind is a system working inside the brain. Now, every system works by some or the other medium. An engine can work properly only by proper supplement of oil. A machine works by the power of electricity. Similarly, human mind works by the power of thoughts. YES, it our own thoughts that develops our mentality, behaviour, character and attitude. If you wish to change any of it, than you first need to change your thoughts. By changing your thoughts you automatically bring a change in your mind as it is only thoughts that the entire mind consists. Mental abilities like telepathy, clairvoyance (perceiving distant scenes by mind), clairaudience (listening to distant sound by mind), etc. are all directly manipulated by our mind. There are few people who develop their mental powers to such an extent that during their life time itself, they can leave their body at will and travel as far as they desire and then return to their body. Hence, every human is powerful and miraculous, just because every human has a mind. A mind filled with powers. You can’t even imagine the extent of the powers your mind possesses. However, once you start your journey towards understanding, controlling and developing mind, you shall eventually, realize the miraculous side of you.
16 | P a g e MIND POWERS The term 'Mind Powers' is now being used commonly. However, we need to understand the actual meaning of it. What are the powers of our mind? Are our abilities our powers? Is our intelligence our powers? Is our confidence our power? Or is it our talent? NO. Our abilities, skills, intelligence develop as we grow. They cannot be our powers because our mind powers are in-born. Mind powers are originated from our mind and our mind consists sheer thoughts. Therefore, mind powers are nothing but our own thoughts, our thinking. Every normal human being has the power to think, hence, every individual has been gifted by the powers of mind. Your thoughts can create wonders but only if you realize their powers and use them in a positive and effective manner. In ancient times, people used their mind powers tremendously. Reading the happenings of the history, you shall feel that those were the years of miracles. Sitting at a place a person could see the happenings of a distant place. People used to remember matters and information without any writing. Send messages and make things happen just by thinking about them. Well, there are many such incidents that can be added to the list. My main concern here is to make you understand that those weren't the years of miracles. Instead, those were the years, when human was super powerful. Human was powerful because he used the powers of his mind. Those so called miracles are possible even today only if human practices and starts using his powers. Today, the world is advancing. In this 21st century, with the development of technology,
17 | P a g e exposure and cut- throat competition, people have lost themselves. They have lost the powers of their mind. Why will a person use the powers of his mind to know what is happening at a distant place when he is having a cell phone to call and ask regarding it. However, by losing the mind powers, human has become weak. In fact, human has made himself weak. Nevertheless, it’s never too late. Even now you can make yourself powerful by understanding your mind and using it in the most effective, positive and productive manner. Once you conquer your mind, you become a totally transformed person, always at peace and cheerful. No person or situation can deflect you from your state of equilibrium. You reach a state where you feel like the king of the kings and have the power of doing whatever you wish to. All your present fears and negative thoughts simply disappear and you become a totally self-controlled person. To use the powers of the mind we first need to understand MIND - its various aspects, its working, way of controlling and finally, conquering it.

Each human being is having a mind. This mind has been divided in three stages. REMEMBER, we have one single mind, just for the sake of convenience and understanding; we have created three divisions of it. 1. 2. 3.
Conscious Mind Sub-Conscious Mind Super-Conscious Mind
All human actions and emotions erupt from mind. Understanding and controlling mind simply means understanding and controlling the divisions on mind. Once we understand each division and its function, we can than have a total control over our thoughts as well as our emotions.
19 | P a g e
“Mind has the power to make hell of heaven and heaven of hell, depending the way you use it.”
20 | P a g e
Now, let us understand each division of the human mind. CONSCIOUS MIND Conscious mind is the upmost division. It is door for the matters to enter the mind. We are in contact with the outer world through the conscious mind. We stay awake, active and alert due to the activeness of the conscious mind. Whatever we are doing, it is by our conscious mind. We sit, stand, move around, presently you are reading this book, all this is happening by our conscious mind. Therefore, conscious mind is also known as the normal stage of mind. If the conscious mind gets deactivated, we than leave contact with the outer world and this happens every single day in our lives. YES, each day our conscious mind gets deactivated and we leave contact with the outer, physical world. However, the question is, when does it get deactivated? The answer is simple. Conscious mind gets deactivated when you sleep. Every day when we sleep, we leave contact with the outer world. We are not able to hear sounds or feel the touch of something or person. Often, we don't even realize the time that passed by. All this is due to the deactivation of the conscious mind. How does the conscious mind stay in contact with the outer physical world?
21 | P a g e
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
All living creatures have senses. Humans have the following senses: Sense of seeing Sense of hearing Sense of smell Sense of taste Sense of touch These five senses exist in each normal human being and these are controlled by the conscious mind. Therefore, the conscious mind stays in contact with the outer world through these senses. When the conscious mind gets deactivated, these senses stop working and the human is unable to experience all that happens around or with him. Hence, we are able to see this beautiful world, hear different sounds, smell the fragrance, taste various types of food and feel the touch due to the conscious mind. Another function of the conscious mind is to think. YES, all the thinking process is done by the conscious mind. All the analyzing, reasoning, discussing and calculating process is carried out in the conscious mind. If you are thinking, your conscious mind is active. Deactivation of the conscious mind , stops the thinking process. So, there are three main points to be remembered for the conscious mind. 1). We stay in contact with the outer physical world through the conscious mind. 2). The five senses of ours are active and controlled by the conscious mind.
22 | P a g e 3). All the thinking is done by the conscious mind. We analyze, reason, discuss and calculate by the conscious mind.
23 | P a g e
SUB-CONSCIOUS MIND Sub-conscious mind is the second division of mind. Sub-division mind is also known as the "store-house" of our memories. All the matters that you remember today, like your name, birth date, parents, religion, incidents that occurred 10 yrs ago, the work that you had been doing few hours back and so on, is due to the storage in sub-conscious mind. Over here the question is, how do matters enter the sub-conscious mind? As said earlier, matters enter the mind through the conscious mind. Now, all the matters that enter conscious mind than travels to sub-conscious mind and settle here. There is no limit to the storage area of sub-conscious mind. The storage process starts right from the time of birth and ends at the last breath. Therefore, its said, "Memories last forever". However, by using the techniques of hypnotism or meditation, one can also eliminate the unwanted thoughts from the sub-conscious mind. Secondly, unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious mind does not have the power to think on its own and therefore, it can easily get influenced. Let’s have an example over here, to make it clearer. Now, as sub-conscious mind does not have the ability to understand and analyze, this leads to a development of emotions. All the emotions (love, hatred, jealousy, anger frustration, depression, fear, etc) are generated from sub-conscious mind. Therefore, for the one who desires to get a control
24 | P a g e over emotions will first need to conquer the subconscious mind. So, the three main points for sub-conscious mind are as follows:1). Sub-conscious mind is the store house of our memories. 2). Sub-conscious mind lacks the ability of analyzing and understanding and can therefore be easily influenced. 3). All the human emotions like love, hatred, jealousy, anger, fear frustration and depression are generated from the sub-conscious mind. SUPER-CONSCIOUS MIND The third division of mind is super-conscious mind. Super-conscious mind is pure and miraculous. It is clean and thoughtless. Today, if you are asked, "Who are you?" The reply comes with your name. If you are asked to tell something more about yourself then the name of your parents, your religion, your profession and your nationality is added by you. Over here, we need to understand that whatever we are today, it is not our real self. None of us is pure and original. Today we are what our experience and circumstances made us. We are known by a certain name that we were given by our parents. Our mentality is developed according to the environment
25 | P a g e we received and the thoughts that were put in our mind at our tender ages. Today, none of is us pure. We were pure when we were born. YES, when you were born, that was your real self, the original you. When a child takes birth, it is at the super-conscious state. Gradually, the sub-conscious and conscious mind start becoming powerful and eventually the super-conscious mind (the real you) gets buried within your own self. However, even today, it can be experienced by diverting conscious mind inwards, deactivating sub-conscious mind and finally entering super-conscious mind. This is possible through deep meditation and even self-hypnotism. Therefore, main points for super-conscious mind are 1). Super-conscious mind is pure, thoughtless and miraculous. 2). Super-conscious mind is our real self. These are the three divisions in which the mind has been divided for proper understanding of it.

MEDITATION - Meditation is all about relaxing the various thoughts arising within the mind. There are various techniques to meditate, yet there are people who avoid it considering it to be boring or timeconsuming or both. One needs to understand that the best and only way to relax mind in this competitive, fast moving world is meditation. Now, let me make meditation easier for you. If you think that meditating means waking up early morning, sitting at an open place, in a particular posture for a certain period of time then you are all WRONG. Meditation is all about being comfortable and experiencing peace and positivity. Meditation is simply focusing your mind on something. Reading a book is a form of meditation, as watching a movie. Thinking about the last discussion with a friend or about the work pending at the office is also meditation. Listening to CD is also meditation. Yoga - It’s all about controlling your body, keeping it fit and staying healthy. Hearing the word yoga, we directly relate it to our body and various "asanas"(exercises).
30 | P a g e Now, here we relate yoga with mind. YES, performing yoga for controlling, relaxation and development of mind. How will yoga help us for controlling mind? Yoga is for the improvement of the body, while meditation is for the improvement of the mind. How about combining both, yoga and meditation and preparing techniques that help human for calming and achieving control over mind. The only and important rule meditation holds is, one should never move out of his/her comfort zone. You can meditate properly only if you are comfortable. Though you try meditating for hours , if your aren't comfortable , you may receive no positive results .Two minutes of proper meditation can give such miraculous results that you might have never thought of. Hence, with techniques combining yoga and meditation, it becomes easier for any person to control the mind in their own way and use it. These techniques can be performed at any time of the day and at any place. You need to do it as long as you are comfortable. Don’t force yourself to for a longer time exceeding your comfort zone, as this will lead to lack of concentration and diversion of mind. You need to enjoy what you do. Yoga and meditation are very down-to-earth and practical and it is available to everyone regardless of
31 | P a g e what religion you practice. Although many meditations are inspired by spiritual traditions, but here are meditations with the motivation of simply creating a happier life for yourself.
32 | P a g e
“Meditation is the only and best way of relaxing the mind.”
33 | P a g e
There are various techniques that are taught in the workshop- ‘CONQUER YOURSELF, To Conquer the World’. One of the basic breathing exercises has been explained below in brief. Sit comfortable on the chair or floor with your eyes closed and back straight. 1.

HYPNOTISM AND SELF HYPNOSIS Hypnosis as a phenomenon is now becoming well documented and more readily accepted. Unfortunately, it is still clouded in mystery as far as the public at large is concerned. People have terrible misconceptions about this science. Many eyebrows are raised. Several suspicions are expressed. They think it as a fiction, black magic or illusion. There is a certain kind of fear that has aroused in the mind of people regarding this scientific phenomenon of hypnotism. This is partly out of sheer ignorance of fake hypnotists who do not have any basic knowledge about the science of behaviour. The other reasons could be… 1) Misguided beliefs
Due to lack of knowledge of hypnotism, people aren't able to understand it and therefore, wrong statements are spread in the society regarding it. People are misguided as there are people who use hypnotism for their livelihood, giving it the name of ‘black magic’ or some sort of ‘tantra mantra’. Innocent and helpless people get trapped and therefore, false face of hypnotism comes before the masses. 2)
Over-stated Claims There are magicians saying that they hypnotize their audience and the audience is able to see only what
35 | P a g e the magician desires. Also there are certain hypnotists and many other institutional heads who desire to be unique for which they claim to have powers gathered from the universe. Such over-stated claims make hypnotism a matter of public ignorance. 3) Entertaining shows of hypnotism.
There are hypnotists performing stage shows, where they explain the science of hypnotism, but along with it also display certain sort of vulgarity. They call about 10-15 persons from the audience , hypnotize them and make them dance , sit, stand, and various other activities, which on one hand are enjoyed by the audience but on the other hand is increasing distance between hypnotism and a common person, who would never wish to become a matter of laughter for others. 4) Television Clippings
Nowadays, television has a great impact on children as well as elders. Various movies and programs are being aired on television displaying the act of hypnotism where the hypnotized person contempt murder or robbery on the instructions of the hypnotist. A person signs a contract or a lady who gives away all her ornaments to a stranger who hypnotizes her. People have been watching incidents on the television, which creates a wrong impression of this science in the minds of common people. There could be other reasons also.
36 | P a g e One fact to be remembered is none can hypnotize you, if you aren't willing to be hypnotized. YES, it can't happen without your wish. No one can be forcibly hypnotized. Now, in today's life, it is necessary to understand the science of hypnotism as it is being used in various fields. Be it crime branch, medical field, marketing or our day-to-day life. Hypnotism is being used everywhere. Hence, it has become a necessity for each individual to understand and use it for a better life, professionally and personally. What is the phenomenon of hypnotism? Hypnotism is totally related to conscious and subconscious mind. Whenever a person, thing or an incident creates an impact on one's sub-conscious mind, the person is hypnotized. How a hypnotist hypnotizes? A hypnotist, through his techniques, deactivates a person’s conscious mind and grabs total control over sub-conscious mind. Then the hypnotist gives proper instructions or suggestions to person's sub-conscious mind, which get stored there and finally the person is brought back to the normal state of mind (consciousness or conscious mind). What does the hypnotized person experience during the process of hypnotism?
37 | P a g e The hypnotized person gets into the states of semisleep. As the conscious mind has been deactivated, he is unable to experience any happening. His mind and body is not in his control. He is not aware of the suggestions are given to his sub-conscious mind. After the person is brought back to the normal state of mind, he is unable to remember all that had happened with him yet he starts implementing upon the suggestions that were given to him as they are stored in his sub-conscious mind. Example: For the treatment of a person who is addicted to smoking and is willing to give it up, a hypnotist will hypnotize the person and will suggest him that he is capable of giving up smoking, will state the evil effects of smoking and such related suggestions. Then after he is brought back to his consciousness, automatically and gradually he gets rid of smoking. Hence, in a common man’s language, we can say that controlling and instructing one’s mind is called hypnotism. Hypnotism is being used in our day-to-day life. Let’s take an example of young boy and girl fallen in love for each other. This loving couple is even ready to die for each other. People say that they are made for each other and their hearts can never be separated. REMEMBER, love and all other emotions like hatred, jealously, anger, frustration, depression and fear are generated from the mind and not heart. The boy and girl have been influenced by each other and are ruling over each other’s conscious mind. Therefore,
38 | P a g e they will help and support each other in all deeds and activities disregard they are right or wrong. This is because their conscious mind is under the remit of sub-conscious mind and as the sub-conscious mind is influenced, it is being controlled by their partner. If for any reason, there is a break-up between the two, the entire situation changes. The two who were ready to give away their lives for each other are not even willing to see their partner’s face. This is because, the influence is lost and they are back to their consciousness. Therefore, being in love is also sort of hypnotism. Now, what if one controls own mind? Hypnotizing and controlling your own mind is called self-hypnotism. Any person can hypnotize himself and attain a peaceful state of mind. It is also known as autosuggestion. Unlike hypnotism, in self-hypnotism you don't require a hypnotist. You are in total control of yourself and you can instruct your mind according to your wish. Your conscious mind also stays active. It is only through self-hypnotism, you can achieve a total mastery over your mind There is a belief in the public that learning selfhypnotism is very difficult and cannot be acquired by all. Well, contrary to this, fact is that anyone can learn it, provided one must have a strong will, clear mind and an effective determination to learn selfhypnotism.
39 | P a g e Benefits of hypnotism:Hypnotism and self-hypnosis helps us in all walks of life. It helps you to recognize your real self and improve yourself whenever and wherever necessary. It helps you get rid of all your bad habits like smoking, boozing, drugs and any other. You become a master of your mind and your influencing power increases. Your confidence is boosted to the extreme and your will-power also improves. You come out of your frustration and depression. You stay in total control of yourself. Self- hypnotism is a boon to those suffering from insomnia (sleeplessness). One can have relief from anger, stress and phobias. Hypnosis is not just a cure for all diseases or a means of becoming superhuman or a miracle man. It is a method of reaching your mind and discovering the hidden powers and abilities, which most of us fail to tap, thus preventing ourselves from attaining full potential. It leads you towards a better and successful living.

MEMORY POWER and SELF-STUDY METHOD Many people come up with the problem of not being able to remember matters. Students have the problem of memorizing answers, dates and events. When they are not able to remember properly, they along with their parents, name it as a concentration problem. One needs to understand that none can have concentration problem unless and until the person can watch a three hours long movie, listen to songs for long, sit at a place for about an hour and watch television. These are the basic activities that a person lacking concentration can't get involved in. Students, who are not able to remember matters, are not suffering from concentration problems. They are actually having a problem in recalling the matters that they have already learnt. Not only with students, even elders have problem in remembering names, faces, phone numbers roadways, etc. they suffer from the same recalling problem. However, they sometimes blame their advancing age for it and other times just make excuses. Whether a student or an executive, a homemaker or a businessman, good memory is one thing that comes handy in everyone's life. Everyone wants to possess a good memory because it could make a tremendous difference to their lives. YOU, too want to develop a fantastic memory, isn't it? Well, the good news is that anyone can have a good memory. It is not at all difficult to develop this

What is memory? Memory is the power of conscious mind to recall any information that has been stored in sub-conscious mind. Sub-conscious mind, the store-house, has everything stored in it. We need to make no attempts to store matters in it. All the things that we see, hear, smell, taste and feel through our senses directly get stored in the sub-conscious mind. Sometimes, our conscious mind is easily able to recall them and at other times it fails. However, being unable to recall, does not mean that the matter is not stored in the sub-conscious mind. What is a good memory and a bad memory? The efficiency of conscious mind to recall matters from sub-conscious mind is what makes our memory good or bad. As such, there is nothing like good or bad memory. It is just a matter of training conscious mind to recall efficiently. Remembering is a process that must be learned just like walking, eating, talking, telling time and calculating. We learnt these as a child and now we can perform these without any conscious effort. Similarly, the process of recalling also involves various techniques that can be learnt. Once you learn them and implement on them, you will have hundred times more power of knowledge and experience than what you have now. The workshop, 'CONQUER YOURSELF, To Conquer the World' has various such techniques that make you a
44 | P a g e memory master and help information within seconds.
One of the basic techniques is as follows: Suppose you have to memorize a list of 10 items in a sequence. 1. BALL 2. BANANA 3. CAR 4. PEN 5. MIRROR 6. TABLE 7. NEWSPAPER 8. CLOWN 9. CAKE 10. TELEVISION
Now, we are not going to repeatedly read the list in order to memorize it. On the contrary, we are going to link a word with the other in a typical manner so that we can easily remember and recall it. For this, we are going to use our imagination in a creative though illogical manner. Let’s start. Imagine a huge colorful ball. This ball breaks in four equal parts and a banana comes out of it. This is not a normal banana that we can eat. This banana is similar to a human. It has hands, legs and also a face. This banana sits in a car and starts driving it. Well, everything is possible in our imagination. A big pen is seen and the car has an accident with it, leaving the pen into pieces. Now, you pick up one
45 | P a g e such broken piece and find it to be a mirror. You bring it home and place it upon your table. Below the table you find a newspaper. You open it and suddenly a clown jumps out of it with a cake in its hand. You cut the cake and eat it. Soon after that, the clown jumps inside the television and disappears. Over here, we are not memorizing words, but are imagining them in color and in form of a story. Remembering words is difficult but not a story. This story has all the above 10 words in a sequence. All you have to do imagine the story and you shall automatically be able to recall the words. When a pianist plays all the notes correctly, there is no one to appreciate but one wrong note heard and the pianist is noticed by all. Similarly, we might forget things that are practical and logical but funny and illogical matters are often remembered. Therefore, for memorizing the list of items, we use our imagination in an illogical, ridiculous and funny manner so that we can remember and recall them instantly. This was just a simple technique known as the ‘LINK METHOD’.
SELF-STUDY METHOD A very unique self-study method is taught in the workshop by which you can memorize any matter within no time. Be it long answers, articles, speeches or any other matter, if it is written and is to be memorized, you can do it without much of effort. You will not even have to waste time in revising it. You
46 | P a g e once learn it and you are able to remember it as long as you wish. You start understanding matters quickly and your writing speed also increases. By this unique self-study method, students have solved all their study problems and have shown a remarkable improvement in their academic results. As it’s a self-study method, the child requires attending no extra classes for studies. This method makes studying easier and interesting.

PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT In today's life, scoring good marks in school or college, having talent and productive abilities or acquiring the knowledge of the facts and figures of the particular field in which one is trying to move ahead is not enough for progressing. It is a competitive world and these qualities are of no worth if you are not able to present yourself in the most effective and attractive manner. You need to have a personality that proves yourself. Having a powerful and dynamic personality that reflects your positivity and talent is necessary. If you have productive skills in you, you need to confidently and effectively show it to the world. Your personality should reflect the kind of person you are. If you enter a place, you should be noticed and after you leave, your absence should be felt. This is what I define as an influencing personality. Possessing a powerful and dynamic personality is the desire of every human being. We all like to be noticed and appreciated. What is an influencing personality? Many people believe that having a good personality means having a beautiful face, dressing up well, possessing big cars and costly cell-phones. Well, all this is an artificial side of a person. Though these show your style but the real personality lies within you. The recipe of an influencing personality is simple and can be learnt. Your personality is the way
51 | P a g e you walk, talk, behave and greet others. It’s your confidence and the sharpness of your face. Heads always turn towards the person with a sharp and confident face, proper body language and effective communication skills. You can’t stop yourself from being influenced by such a personality. COMMUNICATION SKILLS and BODY LANGUAGE The purpose of communication skills is to deliver your message to others in the best way possible. Your manner of communicating and dealing with others makes you win the race. Having effective communication skills helps a person to be better in presenting himself, being confident and most importantly, winning others just by words, in both, business and personal lives. Since we are born with the ability to speak, we think that we are born with good communication skills too just because we have been communicating with others all our life. Well, we need to understand that there is a difference between communicating with people and effectively communicating with people. Many a times, people are not able to convey the information they have in a proper manner. People are often misunderstood by others. There are people who forget what they were to say after half of the matter is delivered. Many a times you are not able to convince others with your point and blame them for not understanding you. Well, there are many other problems that are commonly faced but they go
52 | P a g e unseen as people often have excuses to satisfy themselves. Communicating skills are not about for how long or fast you speak. It’s about what and how you speak, it’s about specific and effective speaking. Few points that you need to keep in mind for effective communications are: • • • • • •
Be specific (Do not rattle over matters) Listen to what the other person has to say. Don’t interrupt. Let the other person complete. Notice the other person. Use their name while greeting and speaking to them. Compliment them when they deserve it.
One basic rule of good communication: Treat the other person as you wish to be treated. Communication skills and body language complement each other. If you speak effectively but your body gestures aren’t effective and reflecting your speech, it states lack of proper presentation and confidence. Similarly, if your body gestures are confident, you walk and stand confidently but if you aren’t able to put your thoughts into words in a proper manner, even then it’s a flop. Therefore, you need to attractively convey your thoughts to others along with proper body gestures so that your total personality influences others.
53 | P a g e Communication skills cannot be learnt just by reading or listening about it. You need to actually communicate with others in order to learn and improve. Therefore, the workshop, ‘CONQUER YOURSELF, To Conquer the World’, practically teaches such influencing skills through various demonstrations that help you in bringing instant changes in yourself. MIND READING
If a child starts crying few hours after drinking his last bottle, the mother precisely knows what he is feeling: He’s hungry. Every day, whether we are discussing with relatives, speaking to our boss or judging whether our friend really likes our new dress, we are trying to read each other’s mind. Drawing on our observations, our databank of memories, our powers of reason, and our wellsprings of emotion, we constantly make logical guesses about what another person is thinking and feeling. Throughout the most heated argument or the most light-hearted chat, we're intently collecting clues to what's on the other person's mind at the moment. Mind reading of this sort is a critical human skill. It’s the way we analyze other people’s behaviour and talks and decide their next moves on our own. Mind reading enables us to negotiate, compete, cooperate, and achieve emotional closeness with others. It lets us figure out when we're being manipulated or seduced. It's how we know when someone finds our jokes hilarious or
54 | P a g e is honouring us out of politeness. It enables us to understand people and helps us in developing our convincing power along with boosting our confidence. Such mind reading skills are properly explained and taught in the workshop.

We have made a journey through various stages of mind and the proper ways of nourishing it. To common people they are enigmatic, mysterious and unfathomable. I have tried to demystify them to show you that they are within the reach of a common man. This book and the workshop, ‘CONQUER YOURSELF’ is totally based on mind, its powers and how much you can achieve by acquiring control over it. Whatever we are today, it’s due to our mind. All around there is a cut-throat competition and in such a world everyone is called upon to make a mark, to carve a niche. In such a scenario, none but you yourself can help yourself. And you can help yourself by manipulating your mind. You can perform miracles. The power lies within you – you miraculous men and women, boys and girls. Good luck.
