You might have heard this before: “People do business with who they know, like & trust.” Whether it’s a company and its reputation, or a person and their reputation or personality, building the “know, like & trust factor” is crucial if you want to gain customers or collaborators (others who assist you in reaching your goals).

NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) is one of the modalities I am trained in that teaches ways to gain rapport with someone. This method uses what we have learned about how the mind processes and responds to information. And a technique to get someone to like and trust you is called “matching” or “mirroring.” By using this technique, you can gain rapport with someone within a few minutes.

Is Your “Money Thermostat” Set Too Low?

Have you hit an income ceiling in your business (or job) that you just can’t get past?

* Do you find it hard to raise your rates yet are barely getting by with what you do charge?

* Do you have a hard time holding on to money, especially when you finally get to a certain amount?

* Do you feel like you have to “work harder/more” to make more money?

These are all signs that you have a “stuck” money setpoint. And until you raise your money thermostat, you will continue to experience this barrier to earning–and keeping–more of those dollars.

The Secret Formula Behind All Success and Failure

Click to share:


It might seem like a bold statement, but I believe that the majority of all success or failure in any endeavor is a direct result of what’s happening in your head and heart, which I explain succinctly through the TEAR formula.

Understanding and following the TEAR formula will make you exponentially more likely to achieve your goals. Conversely, failure to understand and follow this formula is likely to lead to a failure to achieve your goals.

This is why it is the cornerstone of all I teach and do, and those who work with me are people who get this concept (and if they don’t, I cannot work with them).

This “secret to success” formula can be described like this:

Manifesting Techniques I Use–Mind Movies

If you've been exposed to Law of Attraction principles or positive thinking teachers, you've probably heard of Vision Boards or Vision Maps. This is where you create a collage of pictures (usually cut our from magazines, or drawn if you have such talent) and words/quotes that represent the things you want to be/do/have in your life. It's a visual representation of your desires.

Looking at these images every day is supposed to help keep you focused on and resonating with your desires to help the Universe bring them into your life. Many people, including success teachers like John Assaraf and Jack Canfield, have told stories about how they manifested things that they put on their vision boards.

I have made vision boards myself in the past, and several years ago I created a Vision Book (a flip-page sketch book with the pictures and words pasted on them, two pages for each area of my life, like career, finanances, relationships, health, travel, spiritual growth, and "things").

But a few years ago I found something even better! Mind Movies!

Why Your Energy as a Presenter = Your Results (Guest Blog)

Monkey See, Monkey Feel: Why Your Energy As a Presenter = Your Results 
Guest Blogger, Lizabeth Phelps

I tell my students all the time: “Your audiences mirror you. If you’re flat, they’ll be flat. If you’re highly analytical, they’ll go straight into their head, too. Make sure you’re emitting the kind of energy you want them feeling.” And I end with, “Your energy equals your results.”

Some students get it, eventually; others never do. You can imagine, then, how overjoyed I was to discover that neuroscientists would heartily agree with my proclamations. It turns out that we have a very special brain cell that is responsible for mirroring the actions and emotions of others.

How to Deal with the "Inner Critic" with NLP
Guest Blogger, Andy Smith

 Many people are held back from reaching their full potential by an 'inner critic', sometimes known as the 'gremlin' or 'chatterbox', that constantly nags at them, criticises their decisions, and puts them down. Usually this is a leftover from parental criticism or put-downs from their peer group that the person unconsciously took on board during their childhood.

If this sounds familiar, you'll be aware that it's one thing knowing where the 'inner critic' came from, but quite another knowing how to deal with it. The good news is that you can reduce the emotional impact of an internal critic, without trying to challenge the meaning of what it's saying (after all, doing that would give you an extra 'inner voice' to distract you) – just by playing around with how the voice sounds.
