Introduction

The Eagle Who Grew Up With Crows
There is a story about an eagle who laid an egg in a craw's nest. The baby eagle grew up with the craw's family, thinking that he too was a crow. One day, the eagle's mother visited her baby. She introduced herself and told him that he was not a crow but an eagle, and was meant to soar high in the sky. But the baby eagle refused to believe his mother.

A few months later the crow told her brood that it was time to fly. All the young birds made an attempt to fly. The baby eagle noticed that his feathers were far bigger than those of his siblings. So he tried to fly higher and higher-and succeeded. The mother eagle was circling above and noticed him. She dived down and joined him. The baby eagle realized that he had been wrong. He decided to leave the crow family and join his real family.

The Baby Eagle And Us
Many times we too behave like this baby eagle. Although we have all the powers, strength and resources at hand, we are unwilling to venture forth boldly-either because we are not aware of our powers or are afraid of using them.

That you have picked up this book shows you are keen to know about the 'eight powers within you' and want to lead a successful life. This book is meant for you. It has a message for everyone who is seeking success. It will offer hope to those who are struggling to fulfill their dreams. It will also prove useful to those seeking to make little improvements in their life.

An Important Number
Why 'eight' powers? Well, '8' is a wonderful symbol: if turned by 90 degrees, it becomes 00 (infinity). So, '8' symbolizes infinity, and that is the magic of the eight powers within you. Turn them around and you will see infinite opportunities. Wealth and happiness will start embracing you.

These powers are available to you right now. The tips given in this book will help you to marshal these powers to work in your interest as well as that of all humanity.

The eight powers are lying suppressed within you. When you decide to use all of them, employing the step-by-step process mentioned in this book, they will awaken. All the powers are interconnected: once you start nurturing one, the others too will begin developing gradually.

The sky is the limit to which any individual can expand any power, regardless of their current position. You can develop each one of the eight powers to any extent you wish.

If your motive is good, your intention is pure and you work for the benefit of all, the eight powers will act together in harmony and flourish.

Behind This Book
This book started with my quest for self-improvement. Like most people, I used to think that success is a matter of destiny and hard work. But after reading several books on success and self-improvement over 10 years-and tasting a few triumphs myself-I realized that a person's destiny is entirely in their hands.

I conceptualized this book about five years ago, using real-life experiences and knowledge gained through self- growth.

When I started writing, I asked myself, Is there a systematic process to success? How can average people become extraordinary performers? How can this book be of us to them? What tips can be included to make it a success manual that can be handy in day-to-day life?

I also asked myself, what is the relation between me, the world and the universe? What is the role of destiny in shaping one's future?

These questions encouraged me to explore the deeper meaning of success and spirituality in our life.

After all the study and research, I came to the conclusion that all of us can become more successful than we are now. I also realized that there must exist something readily accessible that can help us expand our possibilities. Throughout my prayers and meditations, I kept asking myself, 'What is it that is common to all human beings and can help us succeed at personal, financial and spiritual levels?' Gradually I found the answer and discovered the eight powers within-which I believe are common to all humans.

While exploring the field of self-growth and motivation, I found that success and successful people have some things in common. These are:

1) Success is all-Inclusive
Most people wrongly believe that success depends on hard work alone. Working hard is essential but it is not enough on its own. No one factor can ensure success. One needs many qualities to be truly successful and most of these are acquired. As a person grows, he learns through experience and experiments.

2) Successful people use positive energy to their advantage
I found that successful people work with great energy in lesser time and this gives them the power to achieve more. I understood that the entire universe can be broadly classified into two energy fields positive and negative-and our mind acts as a spiritual broadcasting and receiving centre. When you send out positive energy-through positive thoughts, words or actions-you attract positive things and events in your life. Similarly, negative energy results in negative outcomes. It is like throwing a ball against a wall: it returns to you with equal force. Let's assume this ball symbolizes your emotions and the wall denotes the universe. Now, you have the option to choose your state of emotion-positive or negative-before you throw the ball against the wall. If you write 'love' on the ball and throw it, love will come back to you with equal force. 'Hate' will return as hate. Remember, what you choose to send out is very important.

3) Successful people know what they want
Successful people know what they want and they go after it until they get it. They do not lose sight of their aim. They focus all their attention on it. They train their mind to constantly think about accomplishing what they want. And they make persistent efforts. These people organize their lives around this thought, 'I know clearly what I want and I will keep working hard and long, on myself as well as on the situation, till I get the desired result.' This thought becomes their belief system. It gets stamped on their personality. They turn their entire attention towards their goal. It is like a tiger identifying just one prey in .the herd, locking its eye on it and chasing it-till the target give-up.

4) Successes has an order
Many people have the wrong notion that success is achieved by chance or destiny and luck plays an important part in life. Each one of us experiences failures and successes. Those who have succeeded have done so because they kept working hard all through the process of learning, unlearning and relearning till the desired results were achieved.

5) Successes is possible for anyone
Contrary to popular belief, success is not a privilege of the few. Although many people look for success, only a few pursue their goals with sustained enthusiasm. Anyone who does so can become Successful. Unfortunately, not many people keep going till the end of the journey; they often give up before tasting success.
