words

What Are You Thinking?

Our thoughts create our reality, we know that – what we pay attention to tends to manifest, yet our words are also critical. Of course, they are intertwined and the combination of words and thoughts can be powerful.

Dr Emoto

I’m sure you’ve heard of Dr Emoto who did the ‘rice experiment’ (following on from his much-documented water experiment). He put rice into three glasses and ‘spoke’ to each, to the first he states, ‘Thank You’, to the second ‘You’re an idiot’, and he ignored the third.

You can guess the results of course, the first one fermented and gave a pleasant smell, the one that had been told it was an ‘idiot’ turned black, and the third that had been ignored began to rot.

They videoed the experiment and Dr Emoto used the example to explain how important our words are, especially in how we treat children. He suggests that indifference does the most harm, even more than negative words, and of course positive words create the most abundance. Literally the power of positivity at work.

“If you have a peaceful mind and peaceful thoughts, water becomes more peaceful.” – Dr. Emoto

 

None of this is news to you I’m sure, we know about mindset, we know about the power of our words and our thoughts, and I have many times sung the praises of the excellent book by Andrea Gardner ‘Change Your Words Change Your World’.

Also, I saw recently that there is a new edition of ‘Yes! 50 Secrets from The Science of Persuasion’ It’s all about how the right ‘language’ can influence us. The promotion for the book says:

Most of us are only too aware that, whatever roles we have in today’s fast-moving world, much of our success lies in getting others to say ‘Yes’ to our requests. What many people might not be aware of, though, is the vast amount of research that has been conducted on the influence process. What factors cause one person to say ‘Yes’ to the request of another? Yes! is full of practical tips based on recent academic research that shows how the psychology of persuasion can provide valuable insights for anyone interested in improving their ability to persuade others – whether in the workplace, at home or even on the internet.

There are some great examples that make this point, one of the authors Steve Martin studied the way most people think, and looked at how the findings could result in effective business strategy. He found that a compelling human motivation is to ‘fall in with the crowd’ to do as others do, and when he advised companies to use this type of persuasion they saw great results.

I read that HMRC used to send letters to tax payers warning of fines and the dire consequences of late payment. When they tweaked their message to include a phrase along the lines of ’nine out of ten people in the UK are honest and pay their taxes on time’ they saw an immediate increase in taxes paid on time!

I’m sure you have seen an asterix by a dessert on a restaurant menu, saying ‘*this is our most popular dessert’ and if you are sourcing a hotel you may see ’90 per cent of visitors say they would recommend this hotel to a friend…or similar – it’s persuasive language.

We like positive messages, and we like to be just like everyone else!

Anyone who has studied NLP will know about persuasive language, how we shape the way we phrase our questions, requests, statements will have a direct impact on how ‘successful’ we are.

We all know about powerful selling tactics, and how pitching up to someone saying – ‘Why don’t you buy my programme it’s great’, is unlikely to work.  More and more in this ‘content led’ culture we need to make connections, and engage and communicate with people before we try and persuade them to work with us and buy our products et al. Remember…people do business with those they like know and trust.

Put some thought and effort into how you communicate, what words you use to convey your key messages. What are the words that define your message… your work…your brand?  What words are you using in your relationships that might be passing on exactly the wrong message?

So, here’s a few sayings, well-chosen words, clichés perhaps …but worth remembering:

You are the brand

Your thoughts create your reality

You can use persuasive language to achieve your desired outcome

Changing your words can change your world

Positive words will generate the most abundance

Feel free to add to the list any of your own (positive) words…

Excited to launch my new collaboration The Fearless Speaker

I’m SO excited to tell you about my brand new online programme, it seems ridiculous to be so cock-a-hoop about something you have created yourself but it’s because for this one I have partnered with someone I hugely respect, and between us I hope we can literally ‘change your life’ – especially if you are one of the millions of people who are terrified of public speaking.  Surveys show people claim they would rather die than speak in public (steady on!) but the reality is if you want to grow your brand, share your message, inspire, educate or entertain you have to be confident when you are asked to give a presentation, be interviewed or give a sales pitch.

Sometimes it can feel like others are ‘natural born speakers’ but the reality is you can be too, it’s just skills – oh and bit of ‘retraining’ for your subconscious mind.

We have created a powerful programme that can fast-track to become an amazing, charismatic speaker, irrespective of your past.  This is not the usual way you will be ‘taught’ how to speak in public, however, this tried and tested method has helped 100,000’s of people all over the world become confident public speakers.

IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO LEARN THESE SKILLS SO THAT YOU CAN BE YOUR BEST SELF AND LET OTHERS KNOW YOU ARE THE EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD.

the_fearless_speaker

Remember, someone has to be the expert and it may as well be you and IT IS YOU!

Can you imagine being able to stand up in the boardroom to present with ease, calm and confidence? Or perhaps you know that conference you have been invited to needs a damn good speaker and YOU know you could be that speaker?  Irrespective of whether you have little experience, or a lot of experience in public speaking, the good news is you have incredible resources that this programme taps into.

There are speaker training programmes out there but they can be restrictive. Our programme works on a much deeper and more profound level.

In order for you to be a confident speaker, you need to train your brain to create the right references so that you can continue to be a confident speaker. To our knowledge, this programme is the only one that can do this.

Becoming an intuitive speaker means it has to come from the core, authentic YOU. Traditional programmes can’t get to this core like we can.

Our trademark Protocol is called The Fearless Speaker. Georgia and I have been on the speaker circuit for years. Sometimes I still feel nervous if I’m giving a new presentation or speaking to a particularly large crowd, the last time I spoke at a Hay House event I was definitely feeling butterflies in my tummy, the good news is they were flying in perfect formation!

Why have I teamed up with Georgia Foster for this programme? Because as a leading hynotherapist she can provide the bits that I can’t, we complement each other, I hope, and you get literally two lots of expertise and authenticity for the price of one. We both work personally with clients at a high level so you really are getting our knowledge and expertise for an incredibly low price, but high value. In addition to being sought after public speakers in our own field, collectively we have written 8 books, including an Amazon #1 Best Seller with worldwide publishing houses such as Harper Collins and Hay House, and have been in the media for many years helping people learn to be the best they can be.  I have worked for the BBC for over 20 years and also worked as a producer, and a journalist in print media. I’ve been on both sides of the microphone as it were, the person who wants to attract an opportunity and get my message out there, AND the producer who has to decide which expert to invite onto the programme.

Don’t let fear get in the way of you sharing your passion, expertise and message. We can literally fast-track you to success so that you can become charismatic and confident in a short period of time, you can become a Fearless Speaker

I look forward to hearing of your TEDX talk, your successful sales pitch, your podcast, radio interview…or whatever it is for you.  Wishing you lots of success! See you over at The Fearless Speaker.net

Is It Time for You to Ignite?

I love being a Hay House author and am thrilled that they organise such amazing events to showcase their new books and the awesome talent that is the Hay House family. In addition to the ‘I Can Do It’ conference they now host yearly the ‘Ignite’ conference, this is to showcase the people they believe are the new voices in spirituality and wellness, for a day that will motivate and fulfil you, mind, body and soul.

It was a fabulous line up of speakers including Rebecca Campbell, Mel Wells, Sandy Newbigging, Beth Kempton and Sonia Choquette and all held in the lovely Tuke Hall Theatre at Regents Hall Campus in Regents park.
So, a whizz through ‘review’ and some of the highlights for me…

9781401951894_500h
The day kicked off with Rebecca Campbell of ‘Rise Sister Rise’ fame, Rebecca did several meditations, led us in chanting and asked us many times to ‘breathe in…and out’. She talked us through the seasons and urged us to find the direction of our ‘souls calling’, to surrender, to dance with the universe and she taught us a cool ‘aerobic’ workout connecting ‘heaven, heart, earth’. Rebecca believes it’s fear that holds us back, and she suggests we ask ourselves a very powerful question, ‘If I wasn’t afraid, what would I do? Scary isn’t it. The answer is your soul’s calling.

revpage_08-1

Mel Wells author of ‘The Goddess Revolution’ and Food and Body Freedom expert, spoke of our relationship with food, because just as we have a relationship with money, time, nature et al we sure as heck do have a relationship with food, and usually it’s based on our long-held beliefs and expectations and if it’s a ‘poor’ relationship that is a reflection on our relationship with ourselves. Mel had her own journey and battle with food, with eating disorders and a seriously skewed pattern of behavior. Now she teaches nutrition mindset and awareness and encourages us above all to make the choice to love ourselves, Mel suggests we ask ourselves…’What’s the most loving thing I can do for you, Janey?’

And be prepared to listen. I also love the way she suggests we talk to our body, thank it for all it does for us, adorn it, decorate it and recognize that our body is our home. This really resonated with me having heard many years ago, about the documentary where a film crew were following homeless people in London, they came across one guy who despite living constantly on the streets looked vibrant and healthy, they asked him how come and he explained that he eschewed the drink and drugs so synonymous with the homeless and ate only healthy food. He went to the markets and collected the leftover fruit and veg, he went to the fish restaurants as they were closing and asked for any uneaten pieces.

When they asked him why it was so important to him his answer was…

‘If I don’t look after my body I’ll have nowhere to live’. The same is true for all of us of course, but we get so caught up in our homes, our castles, our workspaces, we forget to really nourish, honour and cherish the one ‘home’ that is truly irreplaceable.

I’ve heard Sandy Newbigging speak several times before and interviewed him for Hay House Radio, he is a modern-day monk and has some wonderful insights. The new book ‘Calm Cure’ isn’t out yet but he gave us a taster. Sandy taught us that life is happening on a spectrum of possibilities, and urged us to attempt to get peace with our full range of emotions.

41mgta3w1al-_sy344_bo1204203200_

Beth Kempton author of ‘How to Live More, Worry Less and Do What You Love’ asked us to try and recall a time when we felt free, she believes we all have a choice but many of us have literally created a kind of ‘cage’ and locked ourselves in, We need to ask ourselves where is the door, the lock, the key – to our freedom?
Charlie Morley gave us some cool tips for lucid dreaming and Carrie Green gave us some tips to become an entrepreneur, Sonia Choquette? Well Sonia made us DANCE!!!

Hay House promised…’You will learn exercises and techniques that will stay with you throughout your life journey as you expand your mind, free your spirit, nurture your body and nourish your soul’.

No false claims there then, today I’m working on a vision board, yet again, reassessing my goals and ‘time management’ and accepting that just because I feel down sometimes, I do have choices and it’s all part of the journey. Charlie Morley said something quite profound…along the lines of nothing grows without the fertiliser. I think he said something along the lines of …‘We need the shit for the blooms to flourish…I get that’

Celebrating International Happiness Day with Janet Jones, The Happiness Millionaire

We live with so much stress, anxiety, and fear and sometimes it’s tricky to find the right focus to be able to make the choices that will bring us more happiness.

Doing things for others is said to be a great route to happiness. Giving our time and energy builds stronger connections making others happy and in turn making us feel good.

Janet Jones is The Happiness Millionaire, a leading breakthrough and happiness expert in the UK, and it was whilst writing her new book ‘Happiness Millionaire: Positive Images for a R.I.C.H and Powerful LIFE’ that she discovered the science behind the power of images and how what we see can either take our life along a happy and successful route or down a devastating route.

Knowing the power of images, Janet has created thirteen images that represent a time-tested system to happiness and success. She has shared her unique images with audiences across Europe and the Far East and is changing lives, helping people break through difficult times, double their income, overcome depression, start businesses and live a fulfilling life true to them.

Here are some of Janet’s tips..

If you are loved by someone celebrate that.

If you live in a peaceful country be grateful every day. There are people in the world who are starving and dying in war torn countries. They would love to live in peace.

If someone said thank you to you today, smile, you were noticed for your kindness and that is proven, by genuine science, to create lasting happiness.

It is a complete miracle that any of us exist at all and I believe that is the greatest celebration for every day of the year, for life.
