Four Mind Power Books Every Young Business Owner Must Read

There are four books that changed my understanding of the way we think, and what motivates our success. These four books showed me how so many of our actions are rooted in subconscious thoughts and how understanding this fact can drive accomplishment.

Throughout my career, I have maintained one objective: to help young people--particularly those at risk--to achieve financial independence, stability and ultimately success.

In addition to the business skills and tools that programs like NFTE provide, I think young people can realize their success by understanding the power of their own minds and the importance of remaining resolute in your work.

Do Dreams Cure or Cause Depression?

Sleep plays a major role in mood regulation; that's a truism that is behind every mother's call for "time to go to bed!" But while the links between dreams and depression are well documented, the role of dreams in maintaining mental health is still one of the most confusing components in the function of sleep.

In the 1970s, psychologists noted that people suffering from depression also report more dreams than average. In fact, people who are clinically depressed may dream three or four times as much. The quality of REM dreams (also called "paradoxical sleep") is different too: more intense emotions, more negative themes, more nightmares, and more unpleasant dreams, in general.

It's insult on top of injury that these unpleasant dreams are often mixed with insomnia and less slow-wave sleep: that "deep" sleep that leaves us feeling restored and refreshed. Rather than waking up refreshed, the clinically depressed dreamer wakes up feeling like he has been in battle all night long and now has to get up and do it again in waking life.

Why Are You Whining About the Meaninglessness of Life?

In “The Matrix”, Morpheus asks Neo “have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream – how could you tell the difference between the dream world and the real world?”

There’s a whole metaphor there about reality and delusion et cetera and it’s been done to death by everyone who thinks they’re a smart guy on the internets, but almost nobody understands the flipside of this coin and asks the counterpart question, which is what I’m going to ask you now:

Have you ever had a dream where you realized you were dreaming while you were still dreaming?

Some people never have, some people have on occasion, and to some people (like the undersigned) it happens all the time. This post will probably be easier for you and give you more if you have some experience of what I’m talking about, but if you don’t I’m going to walk you through it and you can probably follow just fine. It’s not a contest or an achievement to lord over anybody.

The Technology the Government Tried to Ban

By Bradley Thompson / Source: Subliminal Power 2.0

In the 1950s, the CIA stumbled upon a startling discovery... by exposing human brains to 'secret' messages, it was possible to re-engineer a person's thinking without them being aware it was happening.

This self-improvement 'back door' was classified so powerful, the US government actually tried to BAN it in advertising -- for fear it'd give companies an unfair advantage!

But what if you could use this technology to improve your thinking, engineer your emotions and crank up your intelligence, IQ and confidence... by activating it *on purpose*?

Over 70,000 were part of a 9 year experiment to see if it was possible. The results were SHOCKING.

What if there was a way you could activate your brain like a switch?

Well, according to Olympic Medalists, the US Army and Microsoft, there is.

We ALL have this awesome power within us, most people just have no clue how to turn it on, or where to find the right switch!

Today, over one million people are using software (yes, I said software) to gain access to their inner "control panel" and are using it to lose weight, increase their IQ, drop any bad habit, remove fears, eliminate their tension and stress...

* hypnosis
* meditation
* reading
* magic spells

Human Super Senses to Become a Reality

Mankind no longer needs to rely on evolution to obtain new sensory perceptions and abilities.

Society has long dreamed of possessing superhuman powers like those wielded by the characters we see in comics and movies, abilities that would seem to be rooted firmly in the realms of science fiction.

Some scientists however believe that a future in which it will be possible to posses such powers may be a lot nearer than most people think and that research being carried out today could be instrumental in making it happen.

Quantum Suicide and Quantum Immortality

Quantum Suicide is a thought experiment that was originally conceived in 1987 by Hans Moravec but later independently developed by Max Tegmark in 1998.

It is one of those ideas that really squeezes your brain juices in an effort to produce an elixir of profound contemplation.

The idea goes a little something like: get yourself one unobservable room, a healthy physicist and death inducing device i.e. a gun. However it so happens that this gun contains a moving particle and only fires when the particle is moving counterclockwise. There is a 50% chance of this.

Top 10 Old School Self-Help Books

The self-help industry today generates literally thousands of books, seminars, and audio programs, on which Americans spend more than $11 billion yearly.

Most self-help programs are based in "positive thinking" – the principle that your thoughts shape your destiny. This message grew out of mental-healing and Transcendentalist tracts of the mid-nineteenth century, and attained mass appeal in works such as Norman Vincent Peale's 1952 The Power of the Positive Thinking.

Critics generally view positive thinking as namby-pamby nonsense. But the philosophy has produced ideas that are deeply useful, even profound. You probably believe some of them already. This list considers the most compelling and overlooked expressions of this practical philosophy. While many of these books proved too esoteric in tone to attain the mass appeal of Dale Carnegie and Joel Osteen, they are a treasure of serviceable ideas and are all still available today.

The Psychopath's Bible for the Extreme Individual

Book Review of The Psychopath's Bible

"Do not take anything in this book literally! Wait, on second thought, take it all literally!" – Joseph Matheny's quote on the back of the book.

Do you ever wonder what would be possible if you decided to completely rid yourself of limitations – social, psychological, and otherwise? Would you use such methods to assist your fellow beings, or to manipulate them for your own ends? A book for such desire exists, and to be Limitless is the goal of all who persist through it. First-time contributor Donovan, here, to share my thoughts on Christopher Hyatt's work, The Psychopath's Bible.

The Car of the Future Will Read Your Mind

How many times have you had a close-call after being distracted behind the wheel?

According to road safety charity, Brake, probably far more often than you'd like to think. 

The group estimates that a huge 22 per cent of all crashes are caused by driver inattention.

A new car, however, hopes to solve this problem by using a driver's brain waves to start the engine and keep it going. 

The concept, developed by the Royal Automobile Club of Western Australia and Emotiv, is currently being tested in a Honda i40.

The Attention Powered Car features a neuro headset that connects brain activity to the car's engine through customised software.

How to Change Your Life While You Sleep and Wake Up More Powerful

The average human brain requires 7-10 hours of nightly slumber.
Over your lifetime, that adds up to between 22 and 31 YEARS of your life spent snoozing, unconscious to the world.

But the latest research has revealed that much of this time may be *entirely wasted*.

In fact -- scientists have discovered that during sleep, a "unique" window of learning opens that allows your brain to absorb and assimilate new information like a sponge.

Yet - most people are NOT taking advantage of it!

That's why I'm so excited to reveal a 'secret weapon' that turns this "dead" time into your most powerful, deep and potent mind-altering self-development practice to date.

It's called Sleep Programming.

Productivity Tricks for the Neurotic, Manic-Depressive, and Crazy (like me)

By Tim Ferris, Author of The 4-Hour Work Week

A few months ago, I had a birthday party.

A dozen friends and I gathered for several days of wonderful sun, beach, and catching up. On the last day, I didn't get up until 11:30am, knowing full well that the last remaining friends were leaving at 12 noon.

I was afraid of being alone.

Like a child, I hid my head under the covers (literally) and hit snooze until reality couldn't be postponed any further.

But…why am I telling you this?…

Can We Cure Drug Addiction By Erasing Memories?

Missing memories are the stuff of concept-heavy movies and messy weekends. But what if you could wipe out selected events in your head without damaging the rest of your brain?

It sounds like a plot point in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but a group of scientists at the nonprofit Scripps Research Institute is working on erasing certain memories as a way to combat addiction. Courtney Miller is leading the research and she has high hopes for the practice, as long as it's used ethically. I reached out to her to learn more.

Getting Criminals to 'Talk' Through Hypnosis

This is one information 'extraction' method that security agencies would like to implement in the earnest. A method where a criminal or accused would give the information without him/her being injected with any drug.

Taking hypnosis to the next level, Professor Sudhir Khetawat of Hypnotherapy Research Center Indore, on Tuesday, talked about how forensic hypnosis -- a harmless psychosomatic technique -- can be used to crack unsolved crime mysteries long after the crimes have been committed.
