THE A to Z's OF SUCCESS
Charting a Course of Personal Achievement

We all want to experience success in our lives, but perhaps the stronger desire is the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from our success.

There are two primary benefits to success. First, there is the tangible reward that success brings, such as a garden overflowing with fruits and vegetables, a newly decorated room in your home, or a certain sum of money in your savings account.

Additionally, there is the feeling that comes from accomplishment – reaching a goal or a milestone. Experiencing success or feeling successful is more about how achieving a goal or reaching a milestone makes you feel. Perhaps your success brings a sense of excitement, renewal, wholeness, and satisfaction.

In order to create personal achievement, we need specific tools to harness both our internal and external strengths to help us COMPLETE our goals. But far too often people set out for a goal, are unequipped to finish the journey, and therefore they quit.

This teleseminar will give your participants the specific tools they need to take their goals all the way to the end, and a renewed energy and excitement to get there.

COURAGE, RISKS AND REWARDS
Taking Chances to Change Your Life

Life is all about choices. The decision to leap into something new and different can be both terrifying and thrilling. Taking chances always comes with feelings of apprehension, but we must remember that taking chances can also offer significant rewards.

So we must choose to take chances and create opportunities for happiness and fulfillment that, in the end, far outweigh the risks we had to take to get there. But as is the case with most things in life, even taking chances requires understanding and practice.

FINDING BALANCE
Reclaim Your Time and Live a More Fulfilling Life

Life balance is something that many people strive for and yet, it seems to elude them. At just the moment when life feels like it’s “in balance,” something happens to throw it off. Some people continue their pursuit of balance; some throw in the towel; and others never bother with life balance in the first place.

Life balance is not a permanent or absolute state. It’s actually a state of mind where you make continuous small adjustments to achieve fulfillment. It is dynamic and elusive.

Even though absolute balance may be impossible, the good news is that you can become aware of where your life is imbalanced and take steps toward improving your balance. You possess the ability to catch your balance or to move toward a state of balance, just like you do when you misstep or lose your physical balance.

FOCUS ON AUTHENTICITY
Seeing and Living More of Who You Really Are

What would the world be like if everyone could safely express themselves honestly, revealing who they are and what they feel? What if we didn’t have to speak, act and think as our family, friends, media and society expect?

We would be living in a world of true authenticity.

Being authentic in life is difficult because it means we have to be open and truthful with who we really are. It means we have to be conscious of our thoughts and feelings, our hopes and fears, and risk the disapproval of others when pursuing our dreams and passions.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. When we’re being more authentic we feel more connected to who we are at our core. We can avoid living a divided life where our words, choices, and actions are not in line with our true selves. We can express ourselves more fully and with more confidence.

KALEIDOSCOPE OF CHOICES
How What You Think and Choose Colors Your Life

If you surveyed people, most would likely say that being able to choose is a good thing in life. Yet, those same people probably don’t realize the immense power behind this ability. Why? Because we often forget that every choice we make ends up forming the very circumstances of our lives. The downside to choice is that every choice comes with consequences, and sometimes those consequences can be severe. The upside to choice, though, is the simple fact that to change our lives for the better, all it takes is for us to make one positive decision at a time.

LAW OF ATTRACTION CAFE
How to Get What You Desire in All Areas of Your Life

So, what do you want in your life? Is it a relationship? Maybe a new car? Perhaps the perfect job? Well, whatever you want, the Law of Attraction is there to help you get it.

The Law of Attraction is an interesting phenomenon of the universe that states that you will attract into your life whatever you think about most – that your most dominant thoughts will manifest themselves into your reality. This law is always working to give people the very things they most desire. Now, that might sound a little crazy, but it actually makes perfect sense. The universe is just responding to the vibration you are putting out at every moment and giving you more of the same. But here’s the kicker. It doesn’t differentiate between positive or negative, and therefore it gives you what you think about regardless of its positive or negative nature.

THE LEADER'S JOURNEY

LIGHTING YOUR FIRE
Sparking Your Inner Motivation to Reach Your Goals and Change Your Life

We all can recall times in our lives where our motivation has ebbed and flowed. There were times when we felt a high level of motivation, when nothing could stop us from pursuing a goal or staying committed to a cause that was important to us. But also there were times when our motivation waned, our resolve felt weak, and we couldn’t seem to focus on a goal we said we really wanted.

So why is it that we can sometimes take a goal to its end, and other times it loses its flame?

The secret is to understand our own internal personal motivators, and how they tie to the goals we set. Plus there are certain "truths" about how motivation works and why it subsides. And most important of all is that within these truths there is a process for reestablishing your sense of motivation that you can use anytime to reignite the flame of a goal.

MONEY WELLNESS
Having a Healthy Perspecive on Earning, Saving and Spending Your Money

Spend now, pay later. It's a mindset that so many people have when it comes to money. Just pull out the credit card, and then pay for it later when the bill comes. But even when the credit card bill does arrive, there's a tendency to pay only the minimum amount due, and the debt begins to mount.

Our handling of money can become a dangerous cycle of getting ourselves deeper and deeper into debt. It can also become a strong source of stress and tension in our lives and relationships.

Money, and our relationship with it, doesn't need to be difficult. Helping your participants gain control of their finances and get to a healthier financial place is actually easier then it seems.

MOTIVATION MAGIC
Awakening in Others the Inspiration to Excel

People often refer to others motivating them to take an action or pursue a goal, but can we really motivate others? Not we can't. Why? Because the essence of motivation is an internal force - it comes from WITHIN a person, not from OUTSIDE OF THEM. Why then do people so often refer to someone motivating them? Because people don't "give" us motivation; rather it is that people help us find it within ourselves.

While WE can't motivate others, there are many times in life that we are called to provide support and encouragement. Someone may come to you and specifically ask for a helping hand as they set off on a personally challenging endeavor. They are trying to make a personal change and they know they will need support. You may understand that your role is to help the person find, sustain or regain motivation but do you know exactly what to do?

OVERCOMING PROCRASTINATION
The Art of Getting Things Done Now!

You would think that by the time we reach adulthood, we would recognize time as one of our most precious and limited of gifts. Between career demands, family needs, and a slew of responsibilities in between, we are all probably wishing there would be more hours in the day so that we can spend some time doing the things we really want to do.

Last anyone checked there still was only 24 hours afforded to us each day. Perhaps a better question we should be asking ourselves is why 24 hours isn’t enough? Just exactly what is taking up all our time and why aren’t we able to make time for the things that matter most?

THE PERSUASION EQUATION
How to Influence Others, Sell Your Ideas, and Make Things Happen


Have you ever wished you could be more charming? You know, be like that person who can win others over and convince them to do what they want?

Frequently in our lives we need to sell our point of view to others, or influence others to take a certain action, and that means we need to effectively persuade and influence.

On the surface, persuading and influencing others may seem all about our ability to present a sound and logical argument. And although this is an important part of the persuasion equation, it’s not enough on its own. Appealing to a person’s mind will only get you so far; you have to also appeal to a person’s heart in order to be most successful. Researchers have found that at the heart of persuasion and influence can be found in your ability to focus on human relations.

THE REBEL WITHIN
Beating Self-Sabotage and Reaching Your Potential

Most people are totally unaware of the fact that they have an inner, self-sabotaging voice that is constantly speaking to them. This voice will say things that at first sound like wise advice that is only meant to protect the person from emotional harm such as getting hurt, being rejected, or experiencing disappointment. So this voice will say things like:

  • “You’re going to look like a fool.”
  • “Don’t try that. It’ll never work.”
  • “People aren’t going to like that
  • You’re not experienced enough to make that work.”
  • “Don’t wear that dress; it makes you look fat.”
  • “You’ll embarrass yourself if you try that.”
  • “It’s too much effort to do that. And it won’t work, anyway.”

There are countless more things this inner voice says, so the question that needs to be asked then is: have you ever heard this inner voice saying these things to you? The answer for all of us is, yes!

THE RHYTHM AND BLUES OF EMPATHY
Resonating With the Feelings of Others to Build Rapport

Empathy is often referred to as the door that leads to compassion. It is perhaps the most important element to building strong rapport with others. The term ‘empathy’ comes from the German term einfuhlung, which means “to feel as one with”.

Each of us has the capacity to be more empathetic in our dealings with others. However, many people think it’s a trait that only a few possess. This is not true. Every person has the ability to be more empathetic; they just need to understand the term better, appreciate its amazing benefits to relationships of all kinds, and learn how easily it can be developed.

In this teleseminar, your participants will learn more about this very misunderstood skill and walk away with simple, yet powerful tools to increase their own level of empathy so they create stronger rapport with all the important people in their lives.

It may come as a surprise, but communicating with others is the one activity you do more than any other - except for breathing. No doubt there’s plenty of communicating going on in your life. But how effective is it? What results does it get you? Excellent interpersonal communication skills are the most valuable skills you can possess, both personally and professionally.

What gets in the way of our communication and how do we overcome it? And what's essential in all communication interactions?

WHAT MATTERS MOST
Building a Fulfilling Life on the Foundations of Your Values

A choice of direction may at first seem to have no real consequence, but over time that simple choice could have a huge impact. Big changes have their roots in seemingly small decisions. A two or three degree shift in direction may not seem to have much impact at the beginning of a journey, but miles into your journey the implications can be gargantuan.

That’s why identifying and understanding your core values is so important. Like the rudder of a boat, your core values are there to give you stability and guidance along your journey.
