The Secret To Staying Young

“Youth Has No Age”*

All our life we are conditioned to accept that mental and physical vitality declines with age. But, as the years pass on by, we don’t have to let the human  measurement of time dictate that we should feel old.

Old age is more of a state of mind that’s built upon customary and traditional mental attitudes than anything else. We are subconsciously brainwashed to believe that as we get older the life force declines, and therefore we are expected to act old, think old, and be old.

“Youth Is A Work Of Nature, But Age Is A Work Of Art”*

The real fountain of youth can be found in our attitudes of mind. For instance, enthusiasm has the power to transform everything that you undertake, as well as how you age.

Enthusiastically roll out of bed in the morning excited to greet another day, and that sense of joy will permeate every cell in your body and get them vibrating healthfully.

This is why making the conscious decision to train your mind to choose positive thoughts over negative ones has more ramifications than just better moods, relationships, and opportunities – it also vastly improves your health.

Plus, if you’re alive and enjoy a reasonable degree of health then you’ve got it made, so be grateful for everyday.

“I Never Think Any Old Thoughts”*

Most people surrender to the passing of years and let themselves get old, but others defy the passage of time by retaining the vigor and enthusiasm of youth.

Time is only toxic to those who develop a time-neurosis based in their beliefs about the cumulative effects of time. But, their belief in the affects of time is the very thing that is actually toxic.

Given proper nutrition and regular exercise, there is no scientific basis that the passage of years automatically causes our bodies, minds, and spirits to age.

The forgetful mind, the shuffling gait, and the shaky hand are not caused by the passage of time. They are all caused by a lack of physical and mental exertion and improper nutrition throughout the years.

“We Need Not Surrender To Age, If Our Mind Is Sufficiently Enlightened”*

The secret to youth is to carry the spirit of childhood into old age. The best medicine for staying young is in your mental concept of aging. Use the “as if” principle from the law of behaviour. Think young, act young, and you’ll feel young.

This is the essence of the law of assumption in all of its glory. This is why positive thinkers get positive results. Because as Bruce Lee said, “As you think, so you become.”

All the best, -Herb.

Mental & Emotional Vitamins & Minerals

“The First Wealth Is Health”*

Science has proven that there’s a mind body connection that deeply affects your physical health. “As you think, so you become” is not just a great Bruce Lee quote, it’s also a truism that affects every area of your life including your health.

I’ve almost always exercised regularly, and I used to lift weights a lot. I also studied nutrition, and when you have a lot of muscle mass, you need extra nutrients that you don’t always get by eating. So, I took vitamin and mineral supplements daily.

Because of the mind body connection, it’s just as important to take a daily dose of mental & emotional vitamins & minerals.

“He Who Has Health Has Hope; And He Who Has Hope, Has Everything”*

Quantum physics proves that thoughts emit energy in vibrational waves that magnetize whatever you dwell upon towards you. Feelings also send out powerful electromagnetic vibes into the quantum field.

By re-training your mind to entertain mostly good thoughts, you’ll subsequently feel mostly positive emotions. Therefore, you’ll attract good things.

Like everything else, it takes 21 days to make it a habit. You can consciously develop the art of shaking off negative thoughts, by choosing to entertain positive ones instead.

After interviewing and analyzing over 500 incredibly wealthy and successful people, Napoleon Hill put having a positive mental attitude as number 7 of his Keys To Success:17 Principles Of Personal Achievement. {<Free Copy}

My favorite self-help book is Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude {<Free Audiobook} by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone.

These two classics can help feed your mind with the positive vitamins and minerals that will lead to success.

“Life is A Mirror And Will Reflect Back To The Thinker What He Thinks Into It”*

When you have a PMA, you become enthusiastic, and start working on your goals. And taking action is what separates people, and completes the miracle process.

Conversely, by thinking negatively about a project, you either put it off, do it poorly, or fail by not even getting started. Then the fear of failure causes the very thing that is feared to happen, because you don’t even try.

Physical health is important, but just as important is your mental & emotional health because of how it affects your physical health.

Personally, I’ve found that when I’m grateful for what I have, I instantly have a PMA, and then I feel healthier and more alive than ever before.

By learning how to exercise control over your thoughts, you’ll become happier and more grateful. Then you’re life will get better, and you’ll be healthier too.

It’s more important than going to the gym, and It’s also the smart thing to do.

All the best, – Herb
