Did you have an outstanding weekend?
Were you able to find new vehicles to meet the emotional needs we discussed on Friday?
I really hope you take the time to do the exercises I share with you. So many of us still believe that information is the difference that makes the difference in our lives.
The difference that makes the difference is the information you apply by taking action.
That’s the only leverage you get. Period.
So let’s move on.
A couple of years ago, when I was neck deep in studying how our sense of identity works, I unearthed a little video by a guy named Stephen Pierce.
In it, he presented a concept called “selfware.”
I loved the name at sight.
He shared that our sense of self revolves around three components (and by the way, this is as usual just a MODEL. This is not academic nor scientific data.)
The first component is our self-image. How we view ourselves.
Stop and consider that for your own case. How do you view yourself? When you think of yourself, are you happy with what you see?
The next component is our self-talk. What we tell ourseves.
You know that nagging little voice in your head? What does it tell you all day long? Does it edify you or debilitate you?
The third component is our self-esteem. How we like ourselves.
Do you like yourself? How much? In your intimate, do you praise yourself or knock yourself down?
In NLP, of course, we have much more granular ways of playing with each of these components.
But for what it’s worth, I find the model really practical. It helps us evaluate very quickly how we’re doing on these three basic areas and how we could make significant improvements by implementing just a few changes.
Imagine the significant changes you’d be able to achieve in your life if you mastered each of these components.
If you want to know more about this, let me know. I’m building a little program I’m going to offer to only a few subscribers in the next two months.
All practical, juicy bits of information that you can turn around and implement IMMEDIATELY to get results in your life.
As all of my clients will tell you, it just works and the effect is instantaneous.
Formal sign-ups aren’t open yet, but I want to gauge the interest to prepare my resources accordingly.
So if you want to know more, hit the comments and just jot down “Me!”
I got a few emails yesterday from readers who haven’t received messages since Friday.
If it also happened to you, you can read Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s messages on the blog. Here are the links:
Now, let’s get going!
Yesterday I held the last Belief Relief training session. It was awesome, and I want to thank all the lucky participants who now have a heck of a tool in their kit.
We had a great time and I look forward to the next training round – definitely not for another few months.
This week has been amazing so far.
Monday, I gave the biggest keynote of my life and sold more books than I ever did before in one sitting.
Tuesday, fantastic meetings in my business. The next phase of our existence is right around the corner.
Yesterday, closed training sessions for Belief Relief. Yes!
Today, I’m getting a breather.
Tomorrow early morning, I’ll be on my way to South Brazil to give another keynote (smaller) about using Social Media in the classroom.
Mario Andretti used to say that if you’re in complete control of the car, you’re not going fast enough.
Now I understand what he means.
There’s something strangely exhilarating about pressing on the accelerator and gearing up.
Life becomes a blur.
I’ve always been outstanding at slowing down. But now, I’m learning how to speed up at a dizzying pace.
Get things started and keep them moving.
And that’s only possible through the power of team.
It’s only possible by being in sync with other people running in the same direction and on the same frequency.
Natural rapport, if you know what I mean.
So I have a dare for you today:
I dare you to look me up on Voxer and start a conversation with me.
I guarantee you I’ll reply. Whether we keep going will be up to you.
A friend of mine shared the following video with me on Facebook yesterday:
Watch it. It lasts only 42 seconds.
But it’s powerful. Really powerful.The question I asked myself at the end was:
“Would I pull this off?”
I’ll give you my answer at the end of the message.
Ask yourself the same question.
Would you or wouldn’t you?
Why or why not?
And then, ask yourself “How do I know the answer I just gave?”
What prevents you from doing something like that?
Can you imagine how free this guy is?
Literally, he can do ANYTHING he wants.
He literally broke everyone’s pattern in the class and made everybody laugh.
The video stops at 42 seconds. I’m wondering what happened afterwards.
One thing is for sure.
That class was no longer the same.
He completely shook things up.
So maybe you won’t dress as Superman and run around in class, but how will you make people’s day?
I dare you to come up with something as cool and then send me a video of you doing it.
Of course, I’ll share it with everybody here. Goes without saying.
And yes, I committed to doing it. I’m already looking for my Superman costume.
