Wayne Dyer

Don’t Die with the Music in You

I was sad to hear recently of the passing of Wayne Dyer, as a Hay House author I had met him and heard him speak several times and was always struck by his humble yet inspirational persona.   He has regularly been listed as one of the ten most spiritually influential people in the world and last year Mind Body Spirit magazine ranked him at number eight.    Wayne was a best-selling author of over 40 books including his first book Your Erroneous Zones, which is believed to be one of the best selling books of all time, (an estimated 35 million copies sold around the world).

Hay House said of Wayne – ‘He offered a way of being that was at the heart of change, a way of experiencing the world so that your focus is internal — on the I AM — and connected to the Source energy of creation.  When we move from “what’s in it for me” to genuinely putting our energy and attention into visualizing ourselves in a capacity of serving, the doors to fulfilment open for us, when we extend ourselves in a spirit of giving, helping, or loving, we are acting as God acts’.

People giving tribute to him included Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGenres. Fellow motivational speaker Tony Robbins also wrote on twitter: ‘Wayne Dyer has passed away today. For those of us who loved him it’s sad, but he knew death was a transition. We send love for his next adventure.’  Many tributes mentioned that Wayne had no fear of dying and I must confess I envy him that.

Many fans called him Mr Motivation, one thing Wayne was brilliant at was helping people to overcome feelings of guilt and inadequacy and get started on what they wanted to do, where they wanted their light to shine in the world, one of the phrases made famous by Wayne was ‘Don’t die with the music still in you’    He certainly didn’t and his huge catalogue of work remains to inspire us.  It’s a great reminder to us all if there’s something you have always wanted to do, be it write a book,  start a charity climb a mountain, if not now….when?

Is Perfectionism leading you to Procrastination?

Is Perfectionism leading you to Procrastination? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies – allowing the ‘inner talk’ to take over and tell us ‘We’re not good enough…won’t get the clients…’ This was really brought home to me when a colleague asked me why I’m not doing more vlogging around PR/Media skills etc – I had to really stop and think – with some embarrassment I had to admit that despite advising my clients, entrepreneurs, therapists, authors, experts to get their bite sized bits of content out there on short video clips I hadn’t been doing it because somewhere in my deep seated subconscious I was a perfectionist and because in my career as a Radio and TV presenter I had always had the works – make-up artist, great lighting , cameras, autocue etc – I believed my ‘home grown’ efforts wouldn’t cut it.

Ouch!   A realisation that my deep rooted perfectionism in this area was actually leading to Procrastination – by needing it to be ‘perfect’ I wasn’t doing it all!

It’s likely that your sticking point isn’t the same as mine was – maybe you have always wanted to write a book, but can always find excuses, maybe you know you should create an online course but just cant find the time….whatever it is check in with yourself that the ‘but’s that are holding you back are real….not imagined…. Here’s my thought for the day – You don’t have to get it right – you just have to get it going!

Create Compelling Content

If you are a small business owner, coach, therapist, expert, author – if YOU are your brand, the answer is a resounding yes!    Don’t get confused into thinking that a blog has to be a daily diary, a blog post is an article, its a sharing of your opinions facts and passion about your area of expertise.   We live in an information rich society and people are hungry for great content.   You may be thinking – I have lots of information and content on my website, but its not the same, blogs are much less static, you can use social media to invite people to read your blogs and interact with you on a certain topic where they may not necessarily want to spend time on your website at this point.

Janey in FORBES – ‘Getting your Message Across’

Media now means much more than it used to. “If you want to use any kind of platform to get your message out there, you need the right skills to get on that platform. You need to be prepared to attract the opportunity and then maximise it.” But it’s also possible to miss that opportunity: being media-ready takes preparation. “One of the reasons I started working with clients on media training is that, as an interviewer and co-host on BBC Radio 2, I see this from both sides of the microphone,” says Lee Grace. “I’ve seen guests come in to do a pre-recorded interview that would have gone out to eight million people – but was dropped because they weren’t prepared.”

Fear of Public Speaking?

In a study of 2000 women it was found that the very idea of standing talking to an audience is so loathsome that women would rather go to an early grave.   The study found women fear making a spectacle of themselves, and are terrified of stuttering, tripping up and looking foolish. Read more
