Everyone goes through ups and downs in their daily, weekly, or monthly routine. I’m sure you are already aware of the idea of consistency and how far it can lead you on the path to success but what is often overlooked is what truly stimulates the mind.
Many times it can be hard to find something to embrace or something that drives inner passion and drive. One does not have to look too far as long as a healthy lifestyle is incorporated through the act of mental or physical exercise. A healthy body helps create a healthy mind, in return better synchronicity between left and right hemispheres and increased cognitive abilities will seep out.
Reaching mental clarity is never an easy task nor does it happen right away. When purifying and clearing the mind it will lead to significant changes in your daily routine. As a result of changes, health levels will increase in spiritual, physical, and emotional ways. Positive emotions are the best emotions to include and they produce the most stimulation for the mind.
According to Napoleon Hill, author of Think And Grow Rich and leader in career success, there are Seven Positive Emotions:

Without a stimulus it can be hard to reach high heights in success or achievement. I would also include that discovery, invention, and creation are needed in repetitive cycles. If you cannot repeat certain steps you will forget the know-how and you will not continue on incline.
According to Daniel Burrs, “Creativity is a function of knowledge, curiosity, imagination, and evaluation. The greater your knowledge base and level of curiosity, the more ideas, patterns, and combinations you can achieve, which then correlates to creating new and innovative products and services.” The basis is that the mind is a muscle and it requires vigorous training in order to reach spectacular feats, just as a body-builder must put in many workouts and days of carefully selected meals and nutrition plans.
In my eyes the human mind really is not a whole lot different from the body in the idea that it can grow, age, decay, and rejuvenate.
Through acts of mental stimulation such as finding positive emotions and pursuing passions or hobbies, the mind has an innate ability to materialize what may be intuitive skills and habits. It may not be easy to find motivation at first, but once motivation has been turned on, it can be like a trigger of a gun and it can spiral forward until goals are achieved. Stimulation is one of the beautiful correlations that exists in union with motivation.
People have a full capacity to become great, but often times people are afraid to act upon their own personal potential. Too often I see distractions leading people astray, but this is quite normal, focus and attentiveness are hard characteristics to represent daily. In order to expand mental focus there have been studies that show that classical music, meditation, and nootropic enhancers can help create more activity within the cognitive domains of the human mind. Memory, attention, and movement across different frontiers of the brain can occur but speculation and questions still exist.
Whatever your personal goals or interests are, I believe anyone can train themselves to become great achievers. Excessive thoughts can lead to action, and action can lead to new opportunities!
