– Posted in: Business, Free Video, Marketing, Presentations, Success, Training

I have noticed that many people who are successful in life seem to be good at public speaking. This is no coincidence really, because the attributes of a good speaker are the same attributes needed for a successful business. The eight attributes of success. Numerous business owners have a useful skill – a valuable skill – that can help a lot of people. They are passionate about communicating the knowledge they have, and love what they do. However, they have a one major difficulty: Not enough potential customers. And to overcome this difficulty, some presentation skills are essential. Marketing yourself, and your ideas, is a key function in any business. […]

How to be Successful

– Posted in: Music, Psychology, Success

I have recently seen one of my favourite musicians, Steve Vai, on YouTube with a video entitled "How to be Successful". During the video, he explains how creating success is really about your 'thinking', and about creating a 'vivid mental representation' of your authentic genuine desire. Whatever you think of his music, his mastery of the guitar is obvious. His talk is focused at playing the guitar, but the underlying principles can be applied to any creative process. Heavy rock jazz might not be ‘your thing’ but even my mother could appreciate the musicianship (on the inserts he seems to be miming to a live recording he did in Argentina). […]

Thought process models: NLP to the Three Principles and back.

– Posted in: Free Video, Psychology, Success, Video

In this video, I discuss the standard NLP model, Trevor Silvester's Memory Matrix and the Neuro-logical levels model from Robert Dilts. My objective for this video (recorded several years ago) was to describe my understanding of the underlying principles on which Neuro-linguistic programming is based and how it integrated in to my new understanding of the Three Principles. However, The Three Principles has had a more positive effect on my life than anything I have experienced with NLP. I was thinking of clipping the last few seconds or adding some clarification. I decided to leave it as it as a snapshot of my development.

With a little planning, rehearsal and a structured approach, it is possible for anyone to deliver a professional presentation. Also, I show you how to deliver a marketing pitch that has clarity, credibility and relevance. Barack Obama, Robin Williams and Jonathan Ross all got their success by talking to every increasing groups of people. Being able to talk with ease in front of a group of people is a useful skill for creating success in business. There should be three sections to any presentation: • Introduction (INTRO) -- tell them what you are going to […]

You are not who you think you are. You are your ability to create thought.

– Posted in: Psychology, Success, Wellbeing

You are not who you think you are. You are your ability to create thought. These words point to a truth that will be apparent to anyone who understands the nature of thought. In my experience, a person can believe that they are confident, powerful and productive, one day. While the next day they feel self-conscious, anxious and experience a plummeting self-esteem. I think everyone has had the experience of being ‘up’ one moment and ‘down’ the next, when there has been no real change in his or her external circumstance. Our feelings can change from moment to moment during the day. We can feel happy or sad, frightened or […]
