6 tips to Super Charge Your Life

The body is an instrument, the mind its function, the witness and reward of its operation. — George Santayana (1863 – 1952)

Life is an echo. Words we speak, actions we commit and habits we develop are collective reflection of our identity. Along with our difficult circumstances, we tend to accumulate toxins — with food we eat and thoughts we harbor — that lead us to live life of misery and despair.

When I was 7 years old — out of curiosity — I went out to see flooding near my home. I drowned myself by going too close to water. I luckily grabbed the rail close by to stay afloat. I was horrified as I didn’t know how to get out of the turbulent waters I found myself  in. Luckily — after several hours — a gentleman heard my voice and pulled me out. If you feel yourself being pulled under by the current of debt or if you find no rail to latch on to pull yourself out of the difficult relationship, there’s hope: by developing sound mind, body and soul, you can — change your circumstances — pull yourself out.

Cure-all for your financial or personal misery lies in the power of developing a super charged life.

1. Avoid toxin words.

Constant usage of toxin words like “I can’t”, “No”, “Don’t”, “I am tired”, “I am mad” will deepen your feeling of pain, anger and despair. Learn to replace these words with detoxifying words like “I can”, “I am doing well”, “I shall overcome”  to send positive signals to your subconscious mind. Words can do magic. Choose the one that can lead your life to greater fulfillment and lift your mind, body and soul.

2. Do what  you love most.

Life is precious. We all have one chance to live purpose driven life. Sadly, most of us do what we hate to do. We become a slave to the work for financial and social status. As we learn to obey more to our inner desire to own luxuries beyond our means, we get deeper into the state of slavery to do work that we abhor. If we start to learn life of simplicity,  we can engage ourselves in the work that satisfies our mind, body and soul.

3. Learn to give and forgive.

This is a distinct act of soul that has awakened to a higher state.  If you help a child who is struggling to read  or help a cancer patient beyond your realm of duty, you are enriching your mind, body and soul. If you learn to forgive — you are looking at life as the road ahead and not looking back in the rear view mirror –you are removing toxin emotions that can stop you from moving forward.

4. Have gratitude.

Gratitude is an act of humbleness. Most of our grievances, anger and sadness are the outcome of lack of gratitude. If you are not happy due to your difficult financial circumstances, if you are angry or sad, it is only because you allowed your feelings to do so. If you think consciously, you will find that regardless of your circumstances, you have power within you to lift your life above all tides,  if you learn to believe in yourself. You can achieve what your mind can conceive. Life without gratitude drifts into a habit of finding excuses for not achieving dreams.

5. Be responsible.

This great nation known as America was found on principle of life, liberty and justice for all. It created personal liberty and freedom for all of us. This nation is rich and generous due to its emphasis on personal responsibility. What we achieve or do not achieve is a direct result of cumulative thoughts and actions that we pursue everyday. If life is tough, future seems bleak, try to analyze actions you’ve taken in the past several years. You will learn from your mistakes. Make a daily habit of retrospection to see if you are spending most of your day to get closer to goals that you set for yourself and your family. Setting daily targets and analyzing the progress will help stay focused to pull yourself out of the current circumstances.

6. Develop a youthful mind.

A youthful mind is awakened, dynamic and vibrant. A relaxed, youthful mind thinks of endless possibilities. Nature responds positively to an awakened, relaxed mind with seeds of creative ideas. A youthful mind lifts your body and soul to a higher state of awakening — a state of contentment.

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. — Napolean Hill

great tips, as always.. sir shilpan.

i try to make gratitude a big part of my life.. i am thankful to my parents for all that they did for me, and thankful for life, for giving me all that i have.

Jefferson – thank you for the kind words. We can’t control circumstances, but we can certainly control how to react to them.

Nothing disappoints me for a longer time because my mind has been conditioned to treat failures as educational packages. And, I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I say that I am more proud of my failures than my successes because, at least, I tried things that others couldn’t dare to.

Well said. I really like your perspective!

great points all. your post never disappoint!

#6 is one I’ve personally been working on of late. it is a relatively new concept to me and the results so far have been gratifying.

My version of #4:

“If you are basking in the glow of your hard work, initiative and success, congratulations. Now, when you’re done patting yourself on the back, take a moment and give a little thanks.”


Jim, thank you for the kind words. I believe that personal growth can help you overcome any personal financial problems.

These are powerful tips for supercharging all areas of your life, Shilpan. It would be nice if parents could instill these same ideas in their children. As the world becomes more challenging, young people need to become far more resilient and responsible. The ideas that you posted here will truly help them.

Anthony – You are absolutely right. In this competitive world, it is essential to develop habits to deal with challenges than ever before.

Wonderful advice, Shilpan!

I love the toxin words and thoughts…perception typically becomes reality.

I also love the advice of doing what you love. I used to work a job that I despised (all for the money) and then I finally realized that life was too short to always be miserable. Now doing what I love for the past couple of years, I’m grateful that I had the courage to make the career change!

Jason – mental chatter plays a big role in our lives. It’s up to us to decide what types of thoughts to harbor to influence constant mental chatter that occurs between two ears.

I try to avoid the toxin words, however I do find myself saying “I’m tired” more than I should.

As for the learn to give I just started donating to charities. I always new I wanted to help unfortunate children but I wanted to find a charity that I wholeheartedly trusted and I just found two. It makes me happy to know that I am helping someone out.

I love every point you have on this list!

Katie – I just heard on the local radio that spending 15 minutes to do something that makes you happy can help you relieve your stress and heart related problems in the long run. It’s so true. I feel that noble work lays foundation of happiness.

Outstanding tips! I especially like “Learn to Give and Forgive”. There is nothing like being self-less, letting go, and moving on!

Agreed. If we don’t give and forgive, we are allowing toxin emotions to clutter our mind and soul.

Couldn’t agree more! Especially with those toxin words and being forgiving. And I think those toxin words apply not only to what you say to yourself, but what you say to others. There’s no need to use toxin words towards others either “You can’t” “You won’t”, etc.

TB – I agree with you. No matter how difficult circumstances are, you have to remind yourself that it will pass. Harboring thoughts of contempt can not only prolong difficult circumstances, but also impact your health adversely. Thanks for visiting. I really appreciate it.

You must have been so afraid at 7 in that water….I can’t imagine. I was lost in a national forest at age 8, but I never had the thought that I might drown.

I thought that I was going to die in that water as I didn’t know how to swim well.

The first step in having a super charged life is to change our mindset. The things that are happening to us are merely the reflection of what is inside of us..
