Put it into prospective – be grateful for what you have!

Over the weekend I was bombarded with emails asking for suggestions on how that they can get through these difficult times, and really unsure how they can cope.

As with most cases/questions of this type, I strongly recommend putting all the difficulties into prospective. For example:

I have no money? Compared to whom? The families starving in Africa!

Obviously this is one extreme to the other, but looking at the worse case and the best case in prospective, can often self heal the situation.

Sports Psychology – Its All In The Mind..

Empower Your life Sports Attitude Mind Coaching programme offers all the sports mind coaching you’ll ever need.

The increased stress of competitions can cause athletes to react both physically and mentally in a manner that can negatively affect their performance abilities. They may become tense, their heart rates race, they break into a cold sweat, they worry about the outcome of the competition, they find it hard to concentrate on the task in hand.

This has led coaches to take an increasing interest in the field of sport psychology and in particular in the area of competitive anxiety. That interest has focused on techniques that athletes can use in the competitive situation to maintain control and optimise their performance. Once learned, these techniques allow the athlete to relax and to focus his/her attention in a positive manner on the task of preparing for and participating in competition. Psychology is another weapon in the athlete’s armoury in gaining the winning edge.

Developing the 4C’s to Sports Success

Concentration, confidence, control and commitment (the 4C’s) are generally considered the main mental qualities that are important for successful performance in most sports.

  • Concentration – ability to maintain focus
  • Confidence – believe in one’s abilities
  • Control – ability to maintain emotional control regardless of distraction
  • Commitment – ability to continue working to agreed goals

The techniques of relaxation, centering and mental imagery can assist an athlete to achieve the 4C’s.

Concentration

This is the mental quality to focus on the task in hand. If the athlete lacks concentration then their athletic abilities will not be effectively or efficiently applied to the task. Research has identified the following types of attention focus:

  • Broad Narrow continuum – the athlete focuses on a large or small number of stimuli
  • Internal External continuum – the athlete focuses on internal stimuli (feelings) or external stimuli (ball)

The demand for concentration varies with the sport:

  • Sustained concentration – distance running, cycling, tennis, squash
  • Short bursts of concentration – cricket, golf, shooting, athletic field events
  • Intense concentration – sprinting events, bobsleigh, skiing

Common distractions are: anxiety, mistakes, fatigue, weather, public announcements, coach, manager, opponent, negative thoughts etc.

Strategies to improve concentration are very personal. One way to maintain focus is to set process goals for each session or competition. The athlete will have an overall goal for which the athlete will identify a number of process goals that help focus on specific aspects of the task. For each of these goals the athlete can use a trigger word (a word which instantly refocuses the athlete’s concentration to the goal) e.g. sprinting technique requires the athlete to focus on being tall, relaxed, smooth and to drive with the elbows – trigger word could be “technique”

Athletes will develop a routine for competition that may include the night before, the morning, pre competition, competition and post competition routines. If these routines are appropriately structured then they can prove a useful aid to concentration.

Confidence

Confidence results from the comparison an athlete makes between the goal and their ability. The athlete will have self-confidence if they believe they can achieve their goal. (Comes back to a quote of mine – “You only achieve what you believe”).

When an athlete has self confidence they will tend to: persevere even when things are not going to plan, show enthusiasm, be positive in their approach and take their share of the responsibility in success and fail.

To improve their self confidence, an athlete can use mental imagery to:

  • visualise previous good performance to remind them of the look and feel
  • imagine various scenarios and how they will cope with them

Control

Identifying when an athlete feels a particular emotion and understanding the reason for the feelings is an important stage of helping an athlete gain emotional control. An athlete’s ability to maintain control of their emotions in the face of adversity and remain positive is essential to successful performance. Two emotions that are often associated with poor performance are anxiety and anger.

Anxiety comes in two forms – Physical (butterflies, sweating, nausea, needing the toilet) and Mental (worry, negative thoughts, confusion, lack of concentration). Relaxation is a technique that can be used to reduce anxiety.

When an athlete becomes angry, the cause of the anger often becomes the focus of attention. This then leads to a lack of concentration on the task, performance deteriorates and confidence in ability is lost which fuels the anger – a slippery slope to failure.

Commitment

Sports performance depends on the athlete being fully committed to numerous goals over many years. In competition with these goals the athlete will have many aspects of daily life to manage. The many competing interests and commitments include work, studies, family/partner, friends, social life and other hobbies/sports

Within the athlete’s sport, commitment can be undermined by:

  • a perceived lack of progress or improvement
  • not being sufficiently involved in developing the training program
  • not understanding the objectives of the training program
  • injury
  • lack of enjoyment
  • anxiety about performance – competition
  • becoming bored
  • coach athlete not working as a team
  • lack of commitment by other athletes

Setting goals with the athlete will raise their feelings of value, give them joint ownership of the goals and therefore become more committed to achieving them. All goals should be SMARTER.

Many people (coach, medical support team, manager, friends, etc) can contribute to an athlete’s levels of commitment with appropriate levels of support and positive feedback, especially during times of injury, illness and poor performance.

Successful emotional states

The following are emotional states experienced with successful performance:

  • Happy – felt that this was my opportunity to demonstrate an excellent performance. Felt I could beat anybody.
  • Calm and nervous – Felt nervous but really at ease with these feelings. I accepted and expected to be nervous but felt ready to start.
  • Anxious but excited – Felt so ready to compete but a little nervous. Nerves and excitement come together
  • Confident – I remembered all the successful training sessions and previous best performances

Psychology Skills Training

Training for the athlete should aim to improve their mental skills, such as self-confidence, motivation, the ability to relax under great pressure, and the ability to concentrate and usually has three phases:

  • Education phase, during which athletes learn about the importance of psychological skills and how they affect performance
  • Acquisition phase, during which athletes learn about the strategies and techniques to improve the specific psychological skills that they require
  • Practice phase, during which athletes develop their psychological skills through repeated practice, simulations, and actual competition.

Motivate your staff – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

5 Tips to Empower Your Team

Employers often times want to empower their employees, but they don’t always know quite how to go about it. Empowering employees is crucial to the survival, expansion and growth of your business. It not only creates employee satisfaction but increases productivity and morale. Here are five tips to empower your employees.

Ask for input.

It can be hard to ask for ideas and suggestions from staff members if your department isn’t used to working together on projects as a team. But, who knows your customers better than the employees who interact with them on a daily basis? And for internal issues, employees are in the midst of the daily activities and can contribute valuable information for making things better. These employees know what will work both internally and externally to make everyone happy. By allowing all your employees to actively add input, you will not only add value to your clients, but you will add value to your staff as well.

Reinforce with positive feedback.

Make sure your employees know when they have done a job well. Many employers may avoid consistently giving positive feedback to employees because they believe employees are just doing their jobs and shouldn’t require recognition. However, employees often become unmotivated when they hear only negative feedback. Employees who feel respected and valued within their departments will perform better on their tasks and are more likely to stay loyal to your company.

Designate leaders.

It is important to delegate projects and tasks to individual employees and give them authority over specific projects because it gives them a sense of value within the organization. They begin to see the goals of the company more clearly and feel more a part of the process. Assign projects to high-performing employees and make them leaders on individual tasks. This will not only help alleviate your own workload, but it also gives your employees an opportunity to shine.

Mentor your employees.

The most successful companies are the ones that invest in their most valuable assets, their people. Investing in your employees’ developmental growth not only benefits them, but it also benefits your company. Instead of focusing on just being their boss or managing your team, try being your employees’ mentor. Focus on coaching them to success. Help them achieve not only the department or company goals, but their personal career goals as well. Find out where they want to be in the next year, or even five years, and help them achieve their goals by giving them the tools they need to develop and become successful.

Encourage open communication.

Make sure that you clearly communicate your goals, projects and ideas, and encourage your employees do the same. Establish an environment where employees are comfortable expressing their comments and feel free to experiment with new ideas. Encourage your employees to contribute in brainstorming activities and commend them for their feedback. This will generate new ideas and establish a more team-oriented atmosphere.

Empowering your employees doesn’t have to be difficult. By following these five tips, you will start to see a difference in your employees’ attitudes, improved respect among co-workers and an increase in productivity. Employers will also see leaders rising to the challenges of more responsibility and a sense of ownership and pride in their employees’ work.

Weight Loss – Motivation – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Empowered Weight Loss Programmewww.empower-your-life.co.uk

According to recent studies the type of diet plan you choose has less to do with weight loss than the act of sticking to your chosen diet. While this may seem simple to most of us, thousands starting to lose weight this year will stop after just 4 weeks.

Why? Self motivation is still one of the hardest skills “us” humans are able to clasp; losing weight requires not only the correct nutritional programme but the back up when times get tough.

To help break out of this vicious cycle and to create lasting results , Empower Your Life offer the additional motivational support showing you effective ways to overcome common diet pitfalls so you are able to keep goals, look great, feel fantastic and achieve the result you really want.

Motivational Weight Loss – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Motivating in Weight Loss

Have you ever been so dedicated to achieve something that nothing has stopped you?

To lose weight successfully requires this type of dedication and motivation, as this is the powerful engine that drives you towards your goals.

Do what you need to today and achieve a better tomorrow.

Motivation is commonly over looked by dieters, but is the key to any successful weight loss programme. Motivation ensures we stick to the diet and deal with the daily events that would normally trigger indulgent eating.

Many top conditioning coaching admit that it’s possible to achieve amazing results when an individual’s motivation is high, even if the training program is not “scientifically correct”.

The Power of Affirmations

Affirmations are positive statements in the present tense relating to what you want to achieve. An example of this would be: “I can do this”… You probably have said this on several occasions this week already and maybe even said it this morning.

By repeating this to yourself can bypass your conscious mind and talk directly to your subconscious, releasing those limiting beliefs at that time.

“Positive affirmations can support a positive change in your life today”

The “but” is that you must take massive action to achieve the results you want, simply stating that you want something isn’t going to be enough.

Positive Thinking + Massive Action = Unbelievable Results.

If you are ready to benefit from unbelievable results then apply this formula to your goals.


Motivational Steps to Improved Weight Loss

1. Find out what is motivating you to lose weight and establish if it’s strong enough to support you for the duration of the diet, if not then find a new motivator.

2. Make your target weight clear; be very specific; your subconscious mind naturally follows specific goals

3. Create a trigger that reminds you of your goal, i.e. Every time you make a cup of tea imagine yourself at your target weight.

4. Visualize your goal as already accomplished, close your mind to contrary thoughts – see, hear and feel exactly how you would the second you have achieved your target weight. Try this just as you wake up and just before you go to sleep.

5. Read books or articles about weight loss, know your topic and become a professional. By educating yourself in slimming allows you to overcome barriers in the future.

6. Mix with others who already have achieved your goal, we subconsciously mirror people who we mix with on a regular basis, join a gym or health club.

7. Live as though you have already achieved your goal, by feeling great about your weight gives you the self confidence to strive for the next level.

8. Reward yourself for doing well, for ever pound you lose indulge yourself in some form of enjoyment. Retail therapy works well.

9. Repeat positive affirmations such as: “I have the desire and inner strength to achieve my goal”. Repeat this affirmation, with faith and strong feelings.

10. Start with doing something small concerning your goal. Success in small chunks leads to greater success.

Do you desire financial freedom and fame? If you do, I have news for you. NLP can help you model after those successes! However, you might have a lot of catching up the, not just in financial success, but also in terms of knowing where you are where you ought to go. If you’re one of those people who have great financial success, CLICK HERE

So… you want success. Yet, some people have great financial success but are these blamers, whiners and complainers. They are rich in cash, but poor in character. Somehow, these peopl seem to get away with it, don’t they? It seems somewhat unfair, that they have it and you don’t.

If you are hardworking, honest, and have a sense of responsibility in the things that you do, all it takes is a little fire and passion and drive you toward greater success. I think these are the things that are necessary for you to forge ahead and build any kind of success that you want. But you must be willing to take the hits.

The worst thing that can happen for you is that you ONLY take credit for everything that goes right, and fail to improve from the things that don’t go right. Take responsibility. When I mean responsibility, I’m really talking about the ability to take charge of one’s own decisions, instead of blaming someone else and making excuses. If you don’t achieve something, don’t blame anyone else for it.

You need to learn this. Responsibility is one of the most important key facts in NLP. I found that accepting responsibility actually a allows you to develop a greater sense of learning through feedback.

So, if you’re not wealthy yet, take responsibility!

If you don’t have a great family yet, take responsiblity!

If people don’t like you yet, take responsibility!

If you were made bankrupt…(the list goes on, by the way)

Learn something from it.

Once you take a look inside yourself instead of outside of yourself and looking for something to blame, you’ll find that there’s a lot more that you can do to grow as a human being. You become more fulfilled, and experience a greater sense of lightness so that things get better in all aspects of your life.

The basic strategy for taking responsibility is to observe all comments, a visual stimulus, or any other form of sensory feedback and process that by asking the question: “what could I do to improve this?”

The moment you ask this question, it presumes that you already have a clear enough outcome. For most people, the outcome is unclear. You definitely want to have some clarity of your outcomes in order to know how to exactly improve. Once you’re there, you can activate resources that lead you to where it is that you need to go.

I certainly hope that you focus on character instead of cash, wisdom instead of fame, integrity instead of blame. I know that once you’re there, it will definitely help you to make yourself as cash rich and famous as you choose to be.

Positive Attitude – Positive Thinking – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Negative Thoughts

Can you really do anything with a positive attitude?

No! Sorry, yes positive thinking assists and helps achieve Realistic goals,

I for example have one of the worst singing voices in the “world” and no matter how much positive thinking i apply to having the best, it is unlikely to change. “Yes” I can go to singing classes, but I am not the next Michael Buble.

Self Honesty

If you have your goal, understand “why” you want it, and adapt your goal to your realistic ability,

Use Your Negative Thoughts

We all have positive and negative thoughts; use the negative thoughts with the positive ones, if you “can’t” (negative words) find out why and learn from it.

Use all the tools everyday in every environment

The Word “NO”

Start saying “NO” – Try it out the next time that you ask yourself are to do something that you are unable to do say “NO”

Find others to assist you achieve the “NO” and not only are you likely to achieve the result you want, but gain confidence, respect and enjoy the journey.

How Does This Work

Entrepreneurs for years have been using the skills of others to make their millions. I know thousands of people who are better than me at a number of tasks, so why not team up with them to achieve my goal???

By saying “NO” when you’re a little out of your depth, increases your chances of achieving the objective.

Turn your “NO” into a positive “YES”

Executive Coaching – Success Coaching – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Executive and Success Coaching

“A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or Chief Executive is typically the highest-ranking corporate officer (executive) or administrator in charge of total management of a corporation, company, organization, or agency, reporting to the board of directors. In internal communication and press releases, many companies capitalize the term and those of other high positions, even when they are not proper nouns.” Abstract taken from Wikipedia…

Leadership has a different meaning to most people that you ask, however to roots come down to guiding, teaching, controlling and leading a collective of people to achieve a desired outcome.

While this seems quite simple, the process can be complex and without the correct style of leadership it can be disastrous,

E.g. – if you were to ask a military leader to control a class of primary school children they would probably take twice along to achieve the results: Why! They would likely apply an authoritarian approach towards the task – vice versa

To achieve the perfect coaching, teaching, controlling, or guiding style, you must master the art of flexibility, allowing you to adapt to the client or team in every environment.

cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive Behavioural TherapyCognitive behavioural therapy (or cognitive behaviour therapy, CBT) is an umbrella-term for goal-oriented psychotherapeutic systems that aim to influence problematic emotions, behaviours and cognitions. CBT can be seen as a general term for many different therapies that share some common elements and theoretical underpinnings.

CBT is an empirically based, cost-effective psychotherapy for many psychological problems. It is used in individual therapy as well as group settings, and the techniques are also commonly adapted for self-help manuals and, increasingly, for self-help software packages. Some CBT therapies are more oriented towards cognitive interventions, and some are more behaviourally aligned.

One of the objectives of CBT typically is to identify and monitor thoughts, assumptions, beliefs and behaviours that are related and accompanied to debilitating negative emotions and to identify those which are dysfunctional, inaccurate, or simply unhelpful. This is done in an effort to replace or transcend them with more realistic and useful ones. CBT was primarily developed out of behaviour therapy, cognitive therapy and rational emotive behaviour therapy and has become widely used to treat various kinds of psychopathology, including mood disorders and anxiety disorders and has many clinical and non-clinical applications.

CBT has proven in scientific studies to be effective for a wide variety of problems, including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, and psychotic disorders. It has been clinically demonstrated in over 400 studies to be effective for many psychiatric disorders and medical problems for both children and adolescents.

It has been recommended in the UK by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence as a treatment of choice for a number of mental health difficulties, including post-traumatic stress disorder, OCD bulimia nervosa and clinical depression. There is good evidence for CBT’s effectiveness in reducing symptoms and preventing relapse.

Cognitive behavioural therapy most closely allies with the scientist–practitioner model, in which clinical practice and research is informed by a scientific perspective, clear operationalization of the problem, an emphasis on measurement (and measurable changes in cognition and behaviour) and measurable goal-attainment.

Self Esteem Issues…

If your self esteem is low, then the question is “what are you choosing to do now to change it?

By focusing on what you’re going to do to change your attitude towards the problem is likely to build on self esteem issues. Try to self analyse what you are really good at, it can be anything from skiing to writing, it doesn’t matter.

Try answering the following questions:

1. Write down 10 things that make you feel special?
2. Think about 10 things you do well?
3. Close your eyes and picture 10 things you are grateful for having?
4. What makes you unique?

How do you feel now?

Just before going to bed at night, write down a list of things that you are happy that you achieve that day, keep going every night until you don’t feel the “need” to continue.

Be amazed how quickly this simple but effective process is, one evening, your quite literally stop, and feel 10 times better for doing so.

Your Questions – My Answers! www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Ever wondered what the person on your shoulder would look like? The same as you! A better you! Worse! Someone completely different!

The truth is that it really doesn’t matter, but how you control that person can work with or against you, create an amazing or an ordinary life, achieve what you want or fail at every hurdle. Why, it’s very simple.

To master the art of self talk, self motivation, self questioning is something that very few people achieve. It is proven that entrepreneurs excel in the art of self talk, they are able to self analyze problems quickly and effectively, assessing potential problems and overcoming them with ease.

Below are some pointers to achieve the excellence you deserve.

Questions, Questions, Questions – The Answer.

The Right Question – Questions are invitations, that invite you to answer in a way that suits you, your life and the present situation. Be critical over your answers, ask the question more than once.

Example: I was out shopping with a friend the other day and we decided to go for a coffee, knowing full well she was on a diet, I asked what she wanted, “latte with cream and a slice”, I asked again “oh, I’ll forget the slice” and again, “oh I better forget the cream I am on a diet” ok a latte then “yes please”.

“Still not a great choice but better than the first answer”

I hadn’t mentioned that she was on a diet, yet, the environment, situation and feeling made it ok for her to have the first order, by questioning her, she self answered the better choice for her, it took three attempts. Don’t take the first answer you produce as the best, re-question your answers with the same question and see the difference…

Motivating Your Staff – Simple Steps… www.empower-your-life.co.uk

www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Motivation can be described as the source which inspires someone’s specific actions. At work, how well motivated your employees are to carry out their duties and roles will have a significant influence on how your organization functions, your profits and even sickness levels, it can make or break your company.

Stress can have an enormous affect on motivation, motivation can influence stress, and Stress causes sickness, thus a cycle.

Do not think that money alone will lead to job satisfaction. There are other very crucial ingredients to motivation which the manager with good leader ship qualities considers in order to grow and maintain their healthy business whilst ensuring that their staff help achieve the goals of the company.

Tips from the Top – The Top means your management team!!!!!

Motivate workers to achieve their best and the best is what they shall achieve.

• Delegate adequate amounts of responsibility, enough to ensure that your team find it difficult to function without another department, this generates a natural motivator, lets face it none of us likes to being relied upon.

• Give Massive recognition to your workers of the work that they do and acknowledge everyone, including those behind the scenes, “when was the last time you thanked the cleaner”???? Is this important? Think about the cycle!!!

• Create promotional incentives and make sure everyone is aware of them, don’t think that everyone will jump on the band wagon because the wont, remember keeping staff is just as important in business as expansion. Your staff today shouldn’t be the staff of your competitors tomorrow!!

• Know your staff, make sure that are happy in and out of work, this doesn’t have to be your role, but make sure there is a clearly marked person responsible for any grievances.

• Make your staff work harder for their pay, and reward those who achieve more. I have always stood by that all employees need is one big pay cheque; they will remember that amount and aim towards it every month.

• Get a “Chill Out Area” make their lunch breaks fun, buy a table tennis, snooker table or something similar. Think about it, if they have fun at lunch and come back all fired up they are likely to produce more. (Set clear rules from day one this could back fire)…

Ask yourself now, how well do you really know your business? You may know your job or what you wanted to achieve, but break it down to staff, products, services, procedure etc etc, How well do you know your business???

If you would like to invite us to motivate your staff to increase your profits, then call us today 0845 194 9644

Achieve Your Goals – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Finding Your Goal

I am still amazed at the number of people that still have no real understanding where they are heading or what they really want, yes, they are the ones you see and hear in the street constantly complaining about what they haven’t got. Usually in the coffee shop!!

Set yourself goals…. “Critical”

When meeting a client for the first time, this is the most important thing I establish… Why? Firstly, unless I know what you want we have nothing to work on, secondly, your mind is like a goal seeking missile, with a goal achieving radar built in. When you give this missile clear coordinates, without hesitation it knows how, when and where to go.

Give Yourself Clear, Concise Coordinates…

By being specific with your coordinates means that you’re likely to overcome challenges with a positive attitude.

Example:

“I want to lose weight” ok that’s fair, your mind will follow this route until you pass your favourite deli or restaurant, excuses excuses, excuses. “Only One Won’t Hurt” yes it will! By stating the fact that you want to lose weight may mean that it takes 20 years to do it.

But…..

“I want to lose 6lb so I can fit into my tuxedo for the Christmas party” gives the exact coordinates, results, and time to achieve your goal.

If your ready to change and want to hear more about positive goals setting to achieve massive results then call us on 0845 194 9644

Neuro Linguistic Programming

“Don’t struggle quietly”

Who can benefit from NLP? Everyone who would like to experience personal development. Everyone who would like to experience themselves, their surroundings, their opportunities and their life in a more spacious and positive way. Free from inappropriate feelings and behavioural patterns and with a greater quality of life.

Some people have the opinion that personal development is difficult, but it does not need to be. NLP is gentler, more natural and more effective than any other psychological system.

Some say it is based on the idea that everyone experiences reality differently, and therefore it is our understanding of reality that determines how we function, rather than reality itself.

It’s the study of the unconscious processes in our mind which determines how we perceive ourselves, our own reality, feelings and personal states. Therefore our actions and our quality of life all depend on how we use our mind, either consciously or unconsciously.

Over the course of our lives, we accumulate a host of values, experiences and convictions. Sometimes we unconsciously develop a perception or a conviction that neither supports ourselves or our surroundings. It may function as a block or limitation. It inhibits us in the way we live our lives. Perhaps the symptoms are depression, anxiety, confusion, headaches, sleeplessness, low self-esteem, test anxiety or a similar issue. With the help of mild and effective NLP tools, we can “update” our thinking patterns, remove our limitations and release the energy to experience the world in a more positive way with greater spaciousness. We can enjoy life more and have a better quality of life.

As mentioned above, the body may try to “call out to us” in various ways, when there is an inner inbalance, but because we all experience reality differently, we all react differently to our inner state. Everyone can benefit from NLP, but just some take the step to a better life.

Dealing With Recession – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Success – Your Success, is Never an Accident….

I have noticed an increase in calls over the last few weeks from executives and entrepreneurs who are worried about their fate in this economic climate.

Below are 8 Steps to increase your chances of survival

Step 1 – Take Time Out And Plan…

With talk of an economic recession or downturn looming, you shouldn’t wait until later to decide what to do. Begin planning now for the possibility of things getting worse.

Now a recession is an economic term that means 2 consecutive periods of negative growth. In other words, GDP falls twice, one right after the other.

The feeling of a recession, which is a period of economic decline and slow down is very real. In other words, it feels like a recession and we’re suffering. So I say to forget the technical definition and look at things from your own perspective.

If you feel you’re doing all right financially, then plan ahead for the possibility things take a turn for the worse. And if you’re already suffering financially, then start thinking about how to handle it if it lasts longer or gets worse.

Step 2 – Talk To Others

An economic downturn, slowdown, and recession effect many people! So take some comfort in knowing you are, by far, not alone. The reason I mention this is to help ease your level of stress. If you’re suffering financially, others are too!

But to survive, you cannot brood over it and let it take over your life. Why not? Because that will make you even more depressed and does more harm than good. So just look at it from the perspective that others are in the same position and life goes on.

The economy goes through ups and down, so we all in our lifetimes go through this.

If you require a better understanding of how this is effecting you call us on 0845 194 9644

Step 3 Know Your Income and Expenses

There are many of us who know how much we’re bring home in pay and other sources of income. But lots don’t realize how much they’re spending on things. Yes, we know the major expenses like: rent or mortgage payments, utilities, and car and student loans. But the little ones can really eat up your savings and take-home pay!

Mke an accurate list of what you take in (income) and exactly what you spend it on(expenses). And track all your expenses, not just the biggies.

This means including things like: coffee, partying, movies and rentals, gas, etc. As I said before, these are the ones that really add-up and eat into your savings. Most people are shocked at how much they’re really spending when they see this list.

You wouldn’t do this with your business, so why with your personal finances.

Step 4 – Debt Really Is Your Enermy

Debt is money that you owe, meaning bills. Now there “good bills” and “bad ones.”

The good ones are those that are necessities, like rent and utilities. In order to live, you have no choice but to spend money on these.

But where we get ourselves into trouble is with the bad ones. These are the luxuries such as the finance deal on the new sofa, buy now pay later, the new TV for Christmas, “its only £100 per month”….

And credit card debt is the true evil that gets most of us into major league trouble! We tend to look at is as “free money.” In other words, it’s not our money, it’s the credit card’s! So we’ll very easily overspend and live way beyond our means.

So control your credit card debt. If the credit card company wants to raise your limit, don’t go out and spend it. Just because you have a £2000 limit doesn’t mean you have to spend it. Only use it when absolutely necessary! Keep them as a back up if things really go bad.

Step 5 – Your Personal Account – Debit Cards

As opposed to credit cards, debit cards work a bit differently. The major difference is that they aren’t loans like credit cards! When you use a debit card, money it taken out directly from your bank account. So if you don’t have it in your account, it’s unavailable. This gives people a huge dose of reality and helps control spending. Why? Because you won’t spend it if you don’t have it. And you’ll very easily see your balance dropping when you do use it.

With credit cards, you don’t have to worry about money being taken out of your bank account immediately. Nor do you have to pay the full amount when the bill comes. You can pay the minimum. And that’s how you get yourself into financial trouble. Because you look at it this way!

And of course, credit card companies will raise your limit even if you have lousy credit and way overspend. Why? Because you’ll pay the minimum and drag it out for 100 years of outrageous interest rates! So you’re like gold to them. Don’t fall for it and cater to them!

And if you have a debit card with the Visa or Mastercard logo, then they work just like credit cards in the sense that stores can swipe them as they would a credit card. In addition, you can withdraw money from ATM machines without the cash advance fees associated with credit cards. And many banks don’t charge ATM fees if you use your debit card at their branches. This helps save you even more money!

Step 6 – Set A Plan To Repay The Debt NOW!

Let’s say you have £5,000 in credit card debt and pay £50 a month towards it. If you increase your payment, even a little bit, you’ll save lots of money in the end! And that’s because the interest you’re accruing is being reduced.

You see, it’s not the £5,000 that’s the trouble. It the never-ending interest being added to it that really gets most people. And even with a low interest, you’re still accruing it and paying on it every single time you send in a partial payment. So increasing your payment amounts by a little or a lot more will cut your interest and get you paid off much sooner!

And this same principle applies to all forms of debt: car loans, student loans, personal loans, etc.

With debit cards, you don’t have to worry about this because no interest is accruing! When you use the card, the full amount is immediately deducted. So if you spend £25, then £25 is taken out.

Step 7 – Better Your Home Life

You’d be surprised at how much you can save by eating in! It’s far less expensive to buy food at the store and cook it at home than to eat out. Now by buying food, I don’t mean a meal and then reheating it home. I mean buying packaged goods that you’ll cook.

In other words, things like: soups, pasta, meat, fish, veggies, etc. And if you buy in bulk the things you really like, that will save you even more money.

Enjoy, going to the supermarket, and look at the specials at the deli counter, you will be surprised how many “quality” fillet steaks you can pick up, make certain “nights” your night to cook. Use your imagination and keep to a budget. “M&S weekend meal for 2” awesome deal even includes a bottle of wine…

So you’ll save a good deal of money by eating more at home.

Now I’m not saying to eat in all the time, unless you want to. Just swapping 1 home-cooked meal for a non-home-cooked one will save you money. You can do the same with work. Instead of eating out every day, bring your food once in a while or each day. Make pasta at home the night before, take it to work, guarantee others will follow the suit..

Step 8 – We All Love Coffee

I recently worked out that 2 coffees a day on average at my local C*t*a was costing me a whopping £2000 per year, but taking an “expensive jar coffee” I could save over £1500 per year alone on coffee.

In other words, there are many ways to cut down the amount you spend on drinks. And every little bit you save helps you ride out the economic hard times! Remember, it’s the little bit you save here and there that really adds-up to lots!

VIP – Are You In Control????? – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Are you in control?

Have you ever found yourself reacting to life’s events against your better judgement?
Has an external fact ever affected your moods? Or perhaps you have the ability to control your emotions, staying outwardly calm and relaxed, despite others unable to respond appropriately.

People with lower levels of emotional stability tend to feel a lack of control over life’s challenges and to “react” to life rather than to adapting or making proactive decisions thus “reactivity” is the key element in emotion stability.

For most people reactivity simply reflects current life challenges, for emotionally reactive people, reactivity is part of how they live their lives, buffeted from one negative event to another. Emotionally reactive people can be easily upset and somewhat temperamental. The plus side is that a positive event will evoke enthusiasm and joy in this individual, which can be infectious.

Emotionally stable people are calm, mature, and unruffled, they feel that life is more or less in their control. Taking things in their stride, and to cope with day to day life and its challenges in a calm and balanced way, they adapt to frustrations, and don’t let their emotions get in the way. The negative side is that they suppress bad emotions, feeling and anger.

If you want to release your negative emotion and live the life you have dreamed of then call us on 0845 194 9644

Executive Life Coach – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

How Do you React?

We have all come across dominant personalities: you may be one! People who take control in social situations, making it quite clear to all how they are feeling, what they want to do, and how they want things done. They are undoubtedly times when this is exactly what is needed, and dominant people make efficient organizers. On the other hand, there are times when this hard-nosed approach tramples over other people feeling and wishes, and then dominant people can seem overbearing, argumentative, and difficult.

What about deferential personalities? These are easy going people, who usually agree with everyone to avoid tension or conflict, even if it means suppressing what they really think. They are consummate co-operators accommodating individual differences selflessly.

Deferential types are pleasant and easy to be around, and put others before themselves. However all this altruism can be a bit wearing when you need an honest opinion, or when a confrontation is unavoidable?

Dominant or deferential behaviour is often developed in childhood as a result of parenting styles or sibling rivalry. As a result, a third personality style is often taught in personal development workshops or management training courses: assertiveness. Assertive behaviour is that which clearly conveys what you want, while at the same time recognising and respecting the rights of others. Assertive individuals tend to achieve much more in the long run, both personally and professionally.

Accept Responsibility – Be Proactive

When you blame and accuse others, you are in a re-active, negative state and less likely to get what you want.

By focusing on the weaknesses of other people you naturally forfeit the ability to think rationally and therefore do not act in the best interest.

If you exercise massive pro-activity you create the ability to communicate with purpose and vision.

Sports Mind Coaching – Does It Work – Questions & Answers

I found this question and answer session: Hits the Nail on the Head….

Q. Do you think mental attitude is one of the most important aspects of sports training?

With the right mental attitude you can overcome things such as lapses in concentration, pre-performance anxiety, poor motivation, loss of confidence, etc. Is it these kinds of things that make the difference between a good athlete and a great athlete do you think?

A. Mental Attitude is THE most important aspect of all life, let alone higher levels of sports conditioning. You can train your physical self to a certain peak, but without the right mental disposition, you are doomed to simple successes, and not fit for total glory.

The History Of Hypnosis – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

The History Of Hypnosis.

The earliest references that are given to hypnosis date back to ancient Egypt and Greece. Indeed, ‘hypnos’ is the Greek word for sleep, though the actual state of hypnosis is very different from that of sleep.
Both cultures had religious centres where people came for help with their illnesses and problems much as we still do today when visiting our Doctors and Hospitals.

Hypnosis was used by these early civilisations to help induce dreams, which were then analysed by the priest to find the root of the issue or illness.
There are also many references to trance and hypnosis in the earliest writings. In 2600BC the father of Chinese medicine, Wong Tai, wrote about techniques that involved incantations and passes of the hands. The Hindu Vedas written about 1500BC mention hypnotic procedures. Trance like states occur in many shamanistic, druidic, voodoo, yogic and religious practices. Hypnosis has been an integral part of medicine for thousands of years and can be successful on its own or when working closely with standard medical practices.

Hypnotic Pioneers

The modern father of hypnosis was an Austrian physician called Franz Mesmer (1734 – 1815), from whose name the word ‘mesmerism’ is derived. Though much maligned by the medical world of his day, Mesmer was nevertheless a brilliant man. He developed the theory of ‘animal magnetism’ – the idea that diseases are the result of blockages in the flow of magnetic forces in the body. He believed he could store his animal magnetism in baths of iron filings and transfer it to patients with rods or by ‘mesmeric passes’.

The mesmeric pass must surely go down in history as one of the most interesting, and undoubtedly the most long-winded, ways of putting someone into a trance. Mesmer would stand his subjects quite still while he swept his arms across their body, sometimes for hours on end. I suspect that this probably had the effect of boring patients into a trance, but it was certainly quite effective.

Mesmer himself was very much a showman, conveying by his manner that something was going to happen to the patient. In itself this form of indirect suggestion was very powerful. Mesmer was also responsible for the popular image of the hypnotist as a man with magnetic eyes, cape and goatee beard. His success fuelled jealousy among many of his colleagues and this eventually led to his public humiliation. Looking back, it is quite incredible that hypnosis survived these early years, because the medical world was so against it.

Another forward thinker was John Elliotson (1791 – 1868), a professor at London University, who is famous for introducing the stethoscope into England. He also tried to champion the cause of mesmerism, but was forced to resign. He continued to give demonstrations of mesmerism in his own home to any interested parties, and this led to a steady increase in literature on the subject.

The next real pioneer of hypnosis in Britain appeared in the nineteenth century with James Braid (1795 – 1860). Primarily a Scottish eye doctor, he developed an interest in mesmerism quite by chance. One day, when he was late for an appointment, he found his patient in the waiting room staring into an old lamp, his eyes glazed. Fascinated, Braid gave the patient some commands, telling him to close his eyes and go to sleep. The patient complied and Braid’s interest grew. He discovered that getting a patient to fixate upon something was one of the most important components of putting them into a trance.

The swinging watch, which many people associate with hypnosis, was popular in the early days as an object of fixation. Following his discovery that it was not necessary to go through all the palaver of mesmeric passes, Braid published a book in which he proposed that the phenomenon now be called hypnotism.

Meanwhile, a British surgeon in India, James Esdaile (1808 – 1859), recognised the enormous benefits of hypnotism for pain relief and performed hundreds of major operations using hypnosis as his only anaesthetic. When he returned to England he tried to convince the medical establishment of his findings, but they laughed at him and declared that pain was character building although they were biased in favour of the new chemical anaesthetics, which they could control and, of course, charge more money for.

So hypnosis became, and remains to this day, an ‘alternative’ form of medicine, although recent studies suggest that within the next 5- 10 years hypnotherapy could become as routine as visiting a Doctors or Dentists.

The French were also taking an interest in the subject of hypnosis, and such men as Ambrose Liebeault (-1823 – 1904) made many breakthroughs, J. M. Charcot (1825 – 1893) and Charles Richet (1850 – 1935).

The work of another Frenchman, Emile Coue (1857 – 1926), was very interesting. He moved away from conventional approaches and pioneered the use of autosuggestion. He is most famous for the phrase ‘Day by day in every way I am getting better and better’. His technique was one of affirmation and it has been championed in countless modern books.

A man of enormous compassion, Coue believed that he did not heal people himself but merely facilitated their own self-healing. He understood the importance of the subject’s participation in hypnosis, and was a forerunner of those modern practitioners who claim, ‘There is no such thing as hypnosis, only self-hypnosis.’
Perhaps his most famous idea was that the imagination is always more powerful than the will. For example, if you ask someone to walk across a plank of wood on the floor, they can usually do it without wobbling. However, if you tell them to close their eyes and imagine the plank is suspended between two buildings hundreds of feet above the ground, they will always start to sway.

In a sense Coue also anticipated the placebo effect – treatment of no intrinsic value the power of which lies in suggestion: patients are told that they are being given a drug that will cure them.

Recent research into placebos is quite startling. In some cases statistics indicate that placebos can work better than many of modern medicine’s most popular drugs. It seems that while drugs are not always necessary for recovery from illness, belief in recovery is!

Sigmund Freud (1856 – 1939) was also interested in hypnosis, initially using it extensively in his work. He eventually abandoned the practice – for several reasons, not least that he wasn’t proficient at it! He favoured psychoanalysis, which involves the patient lying on a couch and the analyst doing a lot of listening. He believed that the evolution of the self was a difficult process of working through stages of sexual development, with repressed memories of traumatic incidents the main cause of psychological problems. This is an interesting idea that has yet to be proved.
Freud’s early rejection of hypnosis delayed the development of hypnotherapy, turning the focus of psychology away from hypnosis and towards psychoanalysis. However, things picked up in the 1930’s in America with the publication of Clark Hull’s book,
Hypnosis and Suggestibility.

In more recent times, the recognised leading authority on clinical hypnosis was Milton H Erickson, MD (1901 – 1980), a remarkable man, and a highly effective psychotherapist. As a teenager he was stricken with polio and paralysed, but he remobilised himself. It was while paralysed that he had an unusual opportunity to observe people, and he notice that what people said and what they did were often very different. He became fascinated by human psychology and devised countless innovative and creative ways to help people. He healed through metaphor, surprise, confusion and humour, as well as hypnosis. A master of ‘indirect hypnosis’, he was able to put a person into a trance without even mentioning the word hypnosis.
It is becoming more and more accepted that an understanding of hypnosis is essential for the efficient practice of every type of psychotherapy. Erickson’s approach and its derivatives are without question the most effective techniques.

…Over the years hypnosis has gained ground and respectability within the medical profession. Although hypnosis and medicine are not the same, they are now acknowledged as being related, and it is only a matter of time before hypnosis becomes a mainstream practice.

Organisations such as the BSMDH have NHS recognition proving that Hypnotherapy is being considered as an alternative partner to traditional Medicine. It is a national organisation of doctors, dentists and other health professionals within the NHS who are trained and interested in hypnosis and its use as a therapeutic tool, both in anxiety / stress and as a facilitator for various psychotherapeutic approaches used in the treatment of a wide range of disorders.

First formed in 1952 as “The British Society of Dental Hypnosis”, a medical section was added in 1955 and it was renamed “The Dental and Medical Society for the Study of Hypnosis”. In 1968 it adopted its present constitution and title of “The British Society of Medical and Dental Hypnosis” (BSMDH). As a constituent society of both the European and International Societies of Hypnosis where their aim is to promote the safe and responsible use of hypnosis in medicine and dentistry and to educate both our professional colleagues and the public about hypnosis and its uses.

Sales Motivation & Personal Development

People don’t changes overnight. They require motivation, practice and feedback. To ensure optimum results from training programs, organisations need to rethink their overall approach to training.
Have you ever considered using motivational speakers to assist with the improvement of your team’s sales skills?

Call our Motivational Experts on 0845 194 9644 for further details and discover how our sales trainers and motivational speakers can benefit your organisation, ensuring you are making the most of your staff.

At the completion of conventional motivational training programs, all too often participants fail to put the strategies they have learnt into practice. And if they do attempt to employ the new strategies they often fail on their first attempt and then surrender and revert back to their old ways.

At Empower Your Life, your sales team will benefit from motivational advice that can be put into practice today and be used in the long term.

Economic Crisis Coaching – Its Going to Get Better – De-Stress

Economic Crisis Coaching – Its Going to Get Better – De-Stress

Empowered Success is a great time for those concerned about the future, we can help you overcome negative self talk and maximise the potential gain from these uncertain times.

I don’t deny that we may be in for some really hard times. How bad the current economic situation gets remains to be seen. But economies tend to go in cycles.

Its may get really hard for a while, but we know its not forever. Keep that thought and remind yourself of challenges that you may have faced in the past, that now have come and gone. Remember you can only “physically” deal with the split second you are reading this…. The past is the past and the future the future, unless you have invented a magical machine that can change the past or the future, there is nothing you can do about it. By maximising the “NOW” you can be certain for a successful future. Its not going to be easy but a better journey than if you gloat over the past.

This economic crisis will not last forever. Eventually we’ll rebound and life will go on. Until then, do what you can in your own life. Being proactive is always better than being reactive.

If you are looking for specific things you can do in light of this economic crisis, call us for our Success Coaching Programme – 0845 194 9644

How To Deal With Recession – Success – Your Success – is Never an Accident….

I have noticed an increase in calls over the last few weeks from executives and entrepreneurs who are worried about their fate in this economic climate.

Below are 8 Steps to increase your chances of survival

Step 1 – Take Time Out And Plan…

With talk of an economic recession or downturn looming, you shouldn’t wait until later to decide what to do. Begin planning now for the possibility of things getting worse.

Now a recession is an economic term that means 2 consecutive periods of negative growth. In other words, GDP falls twice, one right after the other.

The feeling of a recession, which is a period of economic decline and slow down is very real. In other words, it feels like a recession and we’re suffering. So I say to forget the technical definition and look at things from your own perspective.

If you feel you’re doing all right financially, then plan ahead for the possibility things take a turn for the worse. And if you’re already suffering financially, then start thinking about how to handle it if it lasts longer or gets worse.

Step 2 – Talk To Others

An economic downturn, slowdown, and recession effect many people! So take some comfort in knowing you are, by far, not alone. The reason I mention this is to help ease your level of stress. If you’re suffering financially, others are too!

But to survive, you cannot brood over it and let it take over your life. Why not? Because that will make you even more depressed and does more harm than good. So just look at it from the perspective that others are in the same position and life goes on.

The economy goes through ups and down, so we all in our lifetimes go through this.

If you require a better understanding of how this is effecting you call us on 0845 194 9644

Step 3 Know Your Income and Expenses

There are many of us who know how much we’re bring home in pay and other sources of income. But lots don’t realize how much they’re spending on things. Yes, we know the major expenses like: rent or mortgage payments, utilities, and car and student loans. But the little ones can really eat up your savings and take-home pay!

Mke an accurate list of what you take in (income) and exactly what you spend it on(expenses). And track all your expenses, not just the biggies.

This means including things like: coffee, partying, movies and rentals, gas, etc. As I said before, these are the ones that really add-up and eat into your savings. Most people are shocked at how much they’re really spending when they see this list.

You wouldn’t do this with your business, so why with your personal finances.

Step 4 – Debt Really Is Your Enermy

Debt is money that you owe, meaning bills. Now there “good bills” and “bad ones.”

The good ones are those that are necessities, like rent and utilities. In order to live, you have no choice but to spend money on these.

But where we get ourselves into trouble is with the bad ones. These are the luxuries such as the finance deal on the new sofa, buy now pay later, the new TV for Christmas, “its only £100 per month”….

And credit card debt is the true evil that gets most of us into major league trouble! We tend to look at is as “free money.” In other words, it’s not our money, it’s the credit card’s! So we’ll very easily overspend and live way beyond our means.

So control your credit card debt. If the credit card company wants to raise your limit, don’t go out and spend it. Just because you have a £2000 limit doesn’t mean you have to spend it. Only use it when absolutely necessary! Keep them as a back up if things really go bad.

Step 5 – Your Personal Account – Debit Cards

As opposed to credit cards, debit cards work a bit differently. The major difference is that they aren’t loans like credit cards! When you use a debit card, money it taken out directly from your bank account. So if you don’t have it in your account, it’s unavailable. This gives people a huge dose of reality and helps control spending. Why? Because you won’t spend it if you don’t have it. And you’ll very easily see your balance dropping when you do use it.

With credit cards, you don’t have to worry about money being taken out of your bank account immediately. Nor do you have to pay the full amount when the bill comes. You can pay the minimum. And that’s how you get yourself into financial trouble. Because you look at it this way!

And of course, credit card companies will raise your limit even if you have lousy credit and way overspend. Why? Because you’ll pay the minimum and drag it out for 100 years of outrageous interest rates! So you’re like gold to them. Don’t fall for it and cater to them!

And if you have a debit card with the Visa or Mastercard logo, then they work just like credit cards in the sense that stores can swipe them as they would a credit card. In addition, you can withdraw money from ATM machines without the cash advance fees associated with credit cards. And many banks don’t charge ATM fees if you use your debit card at their branches. This helps save you even more money!

Step 6 – Set A Plan To Repay The Debt NOW!

Let’s say you have £5,000 in credit card debt and pay £50 a month towards it. If you increase your payment, even a little bit, you’ll save lots of money in the end! And that’s because the interest you’re accruing is being reduced.

You see, it’s not the £5,000 that’s the trouble. It the never-ending interest being added to it that really gets most people. And even with a low interest, you’re still accruing it and paying on it every single time you send in a partial payment. So increasing your payment amounts by a little or a lot more will cut your interest and get you paid off much sooner!

And this same principle applies to all forms of debt: car loans, student loans, personal loans, etc.

With debit cards, you don’t have to worry about this because no interest is accruing! When you use the card, the full amount is immediately deducted. So if you spend £25, then £25 is taken out.

Step 7 – Better Your Home Life

You’d be surprised at how much you can save by eating in! It’s far less expensive to buy food at the store and cook it at home than to eat out. Now by buying food, I don’t mean a meal and then reheating it home. I mean buying packaged goods that you’ll cook.

In other words, things like: soups, pasta, meat, fish, veggies, etc. And if you buy in bulk the things you really like, that will save you even more money.

Enjoy, going to the supermarket, and look at the specials at the deli counter, you will be surprised how many “quality” fillet steaks you can pick up, make certain “nights” your night to cook. Use your imagination and keep to a budget. “M&S weekend meal for 2” awesome deal even includes a bottle of wine…

So you’ll save a good deal of money by eating more at home.

Now I’m not saying to eat in all the time, unless you want to. Just swapping 1 home-cooked meal for a non-home-cooked one will save you money. You can do the same with work. Instead of eating out every day, bring your food once in a while or each day. Make pasta at home the night before, take it to work, guarantee others will follow the suit..

Step 8 – We All Love Coffee

I recently worked out that 2 coffees a day on average at my local C*t*a was costing me a whopping £2000 per year, but taking an “expensive jar coffee” I could save over £1500 per year alone on coffee.

In other words, there are many ways to cut down the amount you spend on drinks. And every little bit you save helps you ride out the economic hard times! Remember, it’s the little bit you save here and there that really adds-up to lots!

Success Coach – Success – Your Success – is Never an Accident….

Sports Attitude Mind Coaching differs from sports Psychology in various ways but particularly in that it works directly with the Subconscious part of the brain the part that controls our behaviours, so change is often rapid. This is of great interest to sports people who need to achieve ‘the zone’ when performing or if their sports behaviour is largely unconscious in nature – this is true for any sport that conscious regulation hinders performance – for instance if speed is necessary.

Our tools use the Subconscious mind, the non-critical part of the psyche. There is little need for conscious acceptance, other than the desire to be helped.

The traits you need mentally, emotionally and physically for success you already possess within. With the assistance of mind coaching you can gain access to these abilities and experience the reality of your potential. You are capable of being the athlete you wish to be.

One of our main benefits over some other forms of Psychology is it’s ability in accessing unconscious behaviours rapidly.

It’s often easy for an athlete to be aware of their ‘problem’ but solving it is another matter when they retain unconscious motivations to keep it alive.

Some of the ways we can help?

• Increase an athlete’s speed by slowing down their perception of time, hence they will run faster, punch quicker etc.

• Develop a new technique through in-trance visualisation without the intervention of gravity. Used for sports where gravity prevents an athlete from practicing techniques in slow motion (i.e. Diving, Gymnastics.)

• Install the self-image of an athlete: Change the view of the ‘under dog’ or ‘couch potato’ to that of a sports person.

•Install traits of a professional athlete.

•Programme endurance: The ‘will’ always breaks before the muscle unless you are specifically conditioned for endurance.

•Remove hesitations/freezing/choking during competition.

•Learn to enjoy the ‘pain’ of sports.

•Revisit a previous good performance and set up anchors to trigger that resourceful state again when required.

•Increase strength: Weight lifting increase bench press by 30% through hypnosis.

•Good nutrition instillation: Change to fitness attitudes and behaviours. Stop viewing food as a source of taste pleasure to viewing food as a source of fuel for the body. (as athletes do)

•Remove mental obstacles to success: Fear of Success or the repercussions that it may bring (i.e. Pressure to keep performing at a high level.)

•Install complex behaviours unconsciously: Reduces over consciousness of complex movements which can have an adverse effect on sporting abilities.

Sports Psychology and our sports attitude programmes are impossible to separate as they both work with behaviour and the unconscious mind to varying degrees.

Performance Coaching – Ultimate Sports Professional Mind Coach

Performance Coaching – Ultimate Sports Professional Mind Coach

The Secret of Sports Attitude….

By

Benjamin Bonetti

What the difference between a World Record Breaking Athletehttp://www.empower-your-life.co.uk/sports_attitude.htm and a Good Club Athlete?
This has been the question of millions across the globe for many years. We believe we have the
answer…..

Sports professionals
are no different to successful entrepreneurs, they desire the recognition
as a being the elite in their field, whether a gymnast in search of a gold medal, a professional
golfer
keen to improve rankings or a semi pro amateur keen to reach the next stage, we all
desire the same thing; significance…..

Significance alone increases the pressure to succeed and installs additional fear of failure. As
the mental demand on sports professionals is on the increase, it is imperative to achieve a
mental state of perfection that exceeds that of your competitors. It has been proven to make
the difference between winning and loosing, as proven by Usain Bolt in the 2008 Olympics, with
his mind blowing personal best and world record breaking performance

“I am hungry for a title under my belt and if you want to be a champion you have to be serious,
buckle down and do the work required.” Usain Bolt 2007

Sports Attitude

It doesn’t matter how long you have been training or how good you believe you are, if your
mental ability does not match your physical ability you will never reach your full potential. To
unlock this ability could be the difference between the winning putt for the trophy, landing the
perfect volt, scoring the perfect goal or even crossing the line in a personal best.

INTERESTED THEN READ ON…

Master the Mental Secret.

Mastering the mental secret of sport is one of the key elements to achieving physical
enhancement, many leading athletes and sports celebrities fail to achieve their optimum ability
as they have overlooked the strongest contributing factor to their success: THE MIND….
If you could overcome all limiting beliefs, motivate the negative self talk and improve your
physical performance just by talking to us, would you? Interesting thought isn’t it…

Experience The Secret…

Our professional coaches work closely with our clients to align the mind and body. With the use
of Neuro Linguistic Programming and our specially developed in-house techniques we
eliminate common issues encountered before, during or after events, ensuing our clients have
the maximum mind power when required. Sports Professionals who have increased their
mental ability have reported significant improvement, feeling completely focused, more
confident and are able to approach each day with the motivation required to reach optimum
standards.

You Already Know Your Weakness…

Self talk is the most common problem among the worlds leading sport professionals; below are
few examples of the most common self talk question and results, Do any of these applies to
you? Self talk overpowers your natural ability to think positive..

Question vs Result

 What if I can’t do it? – You make simple mistakes
 What happens if I fail? – You become ultra cautious
 What will happen to my reputation? – You stop having fun
 Am I as good as my competitors? – You look for others to blame
 Why is all this hard work not paying off? – You build up personal doubt
 I am not good enough? – You make excuses and give up
 They are better than me? – You think negative thoughts
 What do they think? – You build up anxieties

If you have experienced any of the above self talk questions, then like many others you have
felt the physiological shift between mind and body. This shift limits the amount of positive
action you can apply to the moment when you require 100% perfection.We act here…

Achieving mental perfection will make the critical difference, helping you to develop improve
your ability to win.

Our Sports Attitude programme gets you back on track, working towards your goals, eliminating
self talk ensuring your mind is at a level that exceeds your competitors.

If You’re Looking For The Edge….

Empower Your Life
only work with those who want to be the best; we are not interested
working with those unwilling to commit to goals, achieve great things or take massive action,
as without these your unlikely to achieve the results you desire. To achieve perfection demands
100% commitment…

If you have never experienced the power of mind coaching, then take advantage of our FREE 15
minute telephone session and experience knowing more than your competition.

Unlike other Sport Mind Coaches our programme is conducted face to face, ensuring 100%
interaction and productivity so we can actually achieve those goals you desire.

The Poem That Students Should Know – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

“You can do as much as you think you can,
But you’ll never accomplish more;
If you’re afraid of yourself, young man,
There’s little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first,
It’s there if we only knew it,
And you can win, though you face the worst,
If you feel that you’re going to do it.”
—EDGAR A. GUEST.*

Motivate Pupils – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

www.empower-your-life.co.uk

I came across this article while scrolling the net, it indicates the benefits of motivating pupils and more importantly the importance of the delivery of motivation.

If only more schools knew the potential of highly motivated students.

Motivation Of Pupils: extracted from the BBC

This is the second of two articles that looks at ways to apply the process model of motivation as proposed by Dornyei (2001) to a number of suggestions and techniques for making the challenge of reading authentic literature accessible and motivating.

This article describes ways to maintain motivation, the first one shows how to generate this motivation.
Motivation
Maintaining and protecting motivation
Rounding off the learning experiences
References

Motivation
Motivation is one of the key factors that determine the rate and success of L2 attainment. It provides the main incentive to initiate learning a foreign language and later the determination to persevere and sustain the long and often difficult learning process. Without sufficient motivation, even individuals with the best of abilities cannot accomplish long-term goals. Teachers working in state schools are first and foremost supposed to teach the curriculum, but we cannot ignore the fact that this cannot happen without motivating our learners.In addition, adolescent learners come with their own emotional and psychological baggage and interests making the task of motivating them one of the greatest challenges for teachers. Using authentic literature to supplement core materials is one way of motivating adolescents yet the task of reading a short story or novel in a foreign language can be daunting for many pupils.

Maintaining and protecting motivation
Support the reading process.
Presenting while-reading tasks with explicit objectives in a motivating way, and diversifying these by incorporating different levels of support and allowing for different forms of response, can help overcome the problem of mixed level and interest classes, engage all pupils and thereby enhance their self-esteem and confidence. Many publishers provide downloadable task sheets to provide ideas or, if possible, work with colleagues to produce worksheets.
Monitor reading.
In the first instance, this involves checking that a certain amount of reading has been done and what has been read has been understood, and building upon that comprehension to motivate further reading. Ideally, this should become interaction with texts read, their interpretation and discussion all of which need to be encouraged. Pupils have to be stimulated to recognise the value of bringing their own expectations and experiences to bear on what they read. Opinions and interpretations must vary, and their exchange and evaluation is a vital part of the interactive learning process, involving language development, cultural awareness and learner growth in overall education terms. Very often there is no one correct answer to a question. The more open that the text is to interpretation, the more rewarding it is likely to be for the pupil.
Have pupils keep a reading diary.
Another form of monitoring which encourages pupil rather than teacher monitoring, is the keeping of a reading diary. This has the advantage of being an individual and personal record, while at the same time documenting and reflecting on work done in or out of class. It can be written in the pupils’ own language as well as partly in English, but as pupils’ language level improves, they should be encouraged to use more and more English in their reading diaries. Negotiate with pupils and set ground rules that cater for and include all levels. Reading diaries can be arranged under several headings such as
Story: Pupils highlight key moments in the plot and compare expectations before reading with what actually happens. Summary skills will often be useful here.
Vocabulary: Pupils keep notes of new, unusual, attractive, useful or specialised words.
Characters: Pupils make brief notes on characters to establish their importance in the plot, how they develop, and what happens to them in the end. Pupils can also record their own feelings or opinions about the characters, their expectations and results.
Setting: This can cover both time and place. Journeys and voyages can be traced; period details and descriptions jotted down and commented on.
Narration: Pupils establish the narrative point of view.
Genre: Pupils determine the genre.
Illustrations: Starting with the cover, any visual materials in the book can be commented on and it contribution to the understanding of the work and enjoyment value considered.
Style: This will cover features such as archaism, humour, colloquialism, dialect, specialised language used, register and chapter length.
Evaluation: An evaluation stage after reading can also be included in the diary (see below).
Integrate multimedia.
There is no doubt that multimedia adds a motivational dimension. There are many film tie-ins or audio recordings that can be used in combination with a story. In addition, the Internet can be used to research authors, settings and locations, historical details or topic-related information. Software with authoring programmes such as Storyboard (a text reconstruction activity) can be used either by the teacher or groups of pupils on short, favourite passages or summaries, for example.
Rounding off the learning experiences
Display final outcomes. It can be very motivating for pupils to see their efforts displayed. Outcomes can be produced individually or by groups of pupils. If appropriate, involve parents.
Encourage positive self-evaluation. As mentioned above, a reading diary can include an evaluation stage to encourage pupils to reflect on some or all of the following:
Was the book enjoyable for you? Why or why not?
What were your favourite or least favourite moments?
Who were your favourite or least favourite characters?
Was the book easy for you to read? Why or why not?
Would you recommend it to your friends? Why or why not?
What did you learn from the book? For example, useful language, factual, cultural, historical, geographical information, etc.
Would you like to read another story by the same author? Why or why not?
Give honest evaluation. Let pupils know why they did nor did not do well and what they can do to improve. We need to be aware of the dangers of an over-reliance on praise, and of the negative effects of punishments and reprimands.
To conclude, viewing motivation as a process and considering how each of the different stages interrelate, can help our pupils develop the habit of reading by becoming more self-aware, positive, competent and autonomous and, consequently, motivated to tackle the next authentic text. Happy reading!

Sales Training in Sussex – The World is changing, or is it???

The World is changing, or is it???

We all know that after the boom there’s going to be a crash, after the crash the boom, but why the sudden surprise with the recent economic events.

Let’s begin with the facts

all economies follow a regular pattern of expansion and contraction. The economy will typically expand steadily for six to ten years and then enter a recession for six months to two years.

Recession has happened before and it will happen again

Stay positive

Begin with your attitude. If you expect to fail you will probably achieve what you expected. All we hear on the media is negative, yet people still buy things. As a salesperson you have to realise that your attitude is your biggest strength.

The most common attribute of successful salespeople is attitude. Think positively and you will win more sales.

Get yourself a plan

The best salespeople have a sales plan that they work to. Without a plan you are not focused and will fill your day with meaningless activity. Planning isn’t everything, but it is a good start. Set yourself increased activity targets. Call up more prospects. See more customers. Don’t give up!

Get busy

Pick up the phone and make twice the calls you did before, with the limited number of clients landing on your desk, keep yourself busy, you may get more rejection, but if you give up trying you’ll get nothing.

Prospect

There is enough business out there to make you rich. To find it you have to prospect twice or even three times as much in the hard times.

Be better at everything you do

The best tip I can give you is to be better than the rest. Look at every aspect of your selling from the way you look to how you sell. Simple things matter like being punctual, delivering what you promised, being pleasant and helpful and being positive.

Strengthen your sales skills

Get motivated, get trained and improve your skills. We offer bespoke sales training courses.

Improve your service

This isn’t just a sales issue. Look at all aspects of your customer service. Are you a truly excellent company, customers rate the service they receive higher than product quality and price. The way you win is by being the best at what you do.

Work harder

Think of all the potential sales activity you get involved in; phoning prospects, booking appointments, contacting your existing customers, e-mailing, faxing, direct mail, attending conferences and so on.

Just do more of the right things and your business will improve.

Sit there and do nothing and nothing will happen.

Make the most of others waiting for the boom, take advantage now..

How to lose weight the healthy way – London, Brighton, International

www.empower-your-life.co.uk – Weight Loss Programme…

The healthiest way to lose weight is neither crash diets nor bursts of exercise. The body likes slow changes in terms of food and exercise.

For example, someone who has not exercised for years should not rush into running miles a day or pounding the treadmill. Not only will the struggle to do so leave you feeling disheartened and demotivated, you’re also far more likely to injure yourself and set your fitness levels back further.

The same goes for people who suddenly start starving themselves. Diets that severely restrict calories or the types of food ‘allowed’ can lead you to be deficient in the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs.

So if you need to lose weight, what should you do?

Energy needs and weight loss

Your body uses food for energy. It stores any excess energy as fat. This means if you eat more food than your body needs for daily activities and cell maintenance, you will gain weight.

To lose weight, you need to get your body to use up these stores of fat. The most effective way to do this is to:
• reduce the amount of calories you eat
• increase your levels of activity.
This is why experts talk about weight loss in terms of diet and exercise.

Introduce changes gradually

Small changes can make a big difference. One extra biscuit a week can lead you to gain 5lb a year – cut that biscuit out of your diet and you’ll lose the same amount.

You are also more likely to stick to, say, swapping full-fat milk for semi-skimmed or making time for breakfast each morning than a diet that sets rules for all foods.

You should think of weight loss in terms of permanently changing your eating habits. While weight-loss goals are usually set in term of weeks, the end game is to sustain these changes over months and years.

Increase your activity levels

Someone who increases the amount they exercise, but maintains the same diet and calorie intake, will almost certainly lose weight.

No matter if you hate gyms – even light exercise such as a short 20 minute walk will be beneficial if done most days of the week.

Every single time you exercise more than usual, you burn calories and fat.

There are lots of ways to increase the amount of activity you do. Team sports, racket sports, aerobics classes, running, walking, swimming and cycling will all improve your fitness levels.

Find something you enjoy that’s easy for you to do in terms of location and cost. You are then more likely to build it into your routine and continue to exercise, despite inevitably missing the odd session through holidays, family commitments, etc.

• Get out and about at the weekend. Leave your car on the drive and walk to the shops. Try to incorporate longer walks into outings to the park, coast or countryside and take a picnic so you are in control of what you are going to eat that day.

• Every extra step you take helps. Always use the stairs instead of the lift, or get off the bus a stop before the usual one and walk the rest of the way.

• Use commercial breaks between TV-programmes to stand up and do exercise, or consider using an exercise bicycle in the living room while watching your favourite programme.

Reduce your calorie intake

If you are overweight, you can’t continue with your current eating habits.

It’s not possible to reduce body fat while eating lots of food, cakes and sweets. This doesn’t mean you can never have any treats, but you need to learn how to limit these foods to small quantities – say, for special occasions.

In terms of weight-loss, you can get your body to use up existing stores of fat by eating less and making healthier choices.

This doesn’t mean crash diet (anything less than 1500 calories), which usually ends up with you either getting weaker or giving up in desperation. Quick-fix diets can lead to a yo-yoing effect of drastic weight loss followed by weight gain, resulting in a vicious cycle.

There are no shortcuts to losing weight in a healthy and reasonable way.

Eating 300 to 500 calories less per day should lead to a loss of between one and two pounds per week. This is a realistic target. It may seem slow, but would add up to a weight loss of more than three stone in a year.

Fat contains the most amount of calories out of all the food types (protein, carbohydrates), so a good way to achieve this is to cut down on fatty foods and eat more wholegrain bread, fruit and vegetables.

Below are ways to reduce calorie intake without having to alter your diet significantly.

• Replace fizzy drinks and fruit cordials with water.

• Swap whole milk for semi-skimmed, or semi-skimmed for skimmed.

• Eat less lunch than usual. For example, make your own sandwich and limit the use of
margarine/butter and full-fat mayonnaise (store-bought sandwiches often contain both).
• Stop taking sugar in tea and coffee.

• Have smaller portions of the food you enjoy.

• Avoid having a second helping at dinner.

• Cut out unhealthy treats such as confectionary, sugary biscuits and crisps between meals.

• Cut down on beer and alcohol.

All these things will influence your health in a positive way.

Finally, don’t be tempted to skip breakfast – or any meal to lose weight. While skipping a meal will reduce your calorie intake for that hour, it will leave you much hungrier later on.

Not only are you likely to overeat to compensate, but you’ll often make bad choices to fill the gap: a cereal bar is not as healthy as a bowl of cereal or as filling, leading you to ‘need’ something extra for lunch.

Irregular eating habits also disrupt your body’s metabolism, which makes it harder to lose weight in the first place.

Write down your plan

Food diary

If you’re not sure what’s wrong with your diet, try keeping a daily diary of everything you eat and drink.
You can use a notebook or an online diary.

At the end of the week, review your entries for problem areas.

Look out for processed foods, alcohol, fast food, roasts, creamy sauces and fried foods.
If your diet seems largely healthy, look at portion sizes.

Once you’ve decided on what changes you’re going to make, write them down. For example:
Week 1

• Exercise: one 20 minute walk every lunch hour.
• Alcohol: none in the week, two small glasses of wine on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
• Food: no chocolate or biscuits in the week, choose healthy snacks such as fruit, trim all fat from meat, eat no fried or fast food.

Once you start your plan, weigh yourself once a week before breakfast. Keep a record of this weight and see if a pattern develops.

You could use a table like the one below to keep track of your goals, marking your progress for each day with a tick or a cross.

Be patient and persevere

It might take a week or two before you notice any changes, but they will steadily appear. After the first month you will be able to see the results and measure them in terms of looser fitting clothes.

Keeping your motivation
up is one of the most difficult aspects of dieting. There will be days when healthy eating goes out the window and there will be weeks where you may not lose any weight – or put a little back on.

This is normal for everyone – dieters or not – so don’t let it undo your plans for a slimmer you. You’re not doing anything ‘wrong’, but you may need to look at your plan. Do you need to increase your activity levels? Make a few more changes to your diet? Put more effort into sticking to your current plan?

The other side of this is to make sure you celebrate your goals. While there is joy enough in stepping on the scales and seeing them dip lower, be sure to mark long-term progress with a reward such as new clothes or a night off from housework.

Celebrating is also a way to involve your nearest and dearest – it’s up to you whether you want their encouragement in the form of gentle reminders not to eat certain foods, but support from other people can get you through the bumpy patches.

Health benefits of weight loss

Studies show that overweight women who lose between 10lb and 20lb halve their risk of developing diabetes. For men, the risk of heart problems reduces considerably.

Generally, we gain weight as we age. A few pounds over the years are not a problem, but people who gain more than 20lb compared to their weight as an 18-year-old will rapidly increase their risk of health problems due to that extra weight. In particular, women increase their risk of heart attack and double their risk of dying from cancer.

It may seem like these are problems to worry about in the future, but time flies by and tomorrow becomes today. By keeping your weight in the healthy range, you are less likely to be troubled by illnesses in your later years.

Motivation in Sport.. www.empower-your-life.co.uk

http://www.empower-your-life.co.uk/sports_attitude.htm

No matter how good your intentions are when you take up a sport or pursue some kind of exercise regime, at some point your motivation levels will dip and you’ll find it hard to summon up the enthusiasm to continue. There are several different ways you can combat boredom, some of which are more appropriate if you’re, say, working out at the gym than exercising outdoors. However, the list of ‘boredom-busters’ below should provide you with some ideas and inspiration for staving off boredom in your chosen exercise or sport.

Read Or Listen To Music

If you exercise at the gym, it can sometimes get a bit monotonous. But it’s an ideal place to combine training with a spot of reading or listening to the radio or to your music collection on your MP3 player. Several of the machines you’ll often find in gyms will be designed so that you can place a book or magazine in front of you whilst you work out and you can even get audio books to listen to if music’s not your thing. Many gyms even have TVs you can watch whilst exercising. Basically, by taking your mind off the exercise itself, it can often help to alleviate boredom.

Get A Friend Involved Or Even A Stranger

A lot of people prefer to exercise in solitude but it takes a lot of discipline and sometimes the lack of social interaction can induce boredom. Therefore, why not get a friend to join you or even ask a stranger at the gym. In addition to the social interaction, if you’ve arranged to meet somebody, then you’re less likely to duck out and you can always work on things like time challenges such as the number of reps each of you can achieve in a minute on a particular piece of equipment, for example. By becoming more competitive, it’s less likely you’ll feel bored.

Set Yourself Targets

When it comes to solitary gym work in particular, a lot of people tend to set themselves a specific length of time they are going to stay at the gym and that’s about it. However, if you set targets for yourself on each piece of equipment you use, you’ll gain more motivation by keeping records and trying to beat your previous best on your next visit.

Try Different Equipment And Different Activities

Whether it’s badminton you play or the rowing machine or exercise bike you use at the gym, it can get a bit boring if you don’t mix it up a bit from time to time. So, on occasion, make it a point at the gym to use some of the other equipment you haven’t tried before or if you’re playing badminton, try tennis or a squash session some time or some other sport. Also, if you exercise in a gym, try to incorporate some exercise that takes place outdoors occasionally. A run in your local wood in the fresh air enjoying the nature and wildlife can make a very pleasant change.

Reward Yourself

Exercise can sometime seem like one long treadmill that never ends so it’s important that you mark your dedication and achievement by rewarding yourself whenever you achieve a specific goal. Treat yourself to a meal out or buy a new item of clothing if you reach your target or goal. By setting goals and rewards for achieving them, it’s more likely you’ll stay motivated.

Join A Team

Boredom when exercising is usually more commonly associated with those who exercise alone. Therefore, why not mix and match your exercise regime by joining some kind of team sport activity once or twice a week. That way, you’ll still be getting the benefits of exercise but you’ll also be making new friends and will be looking forward to the social interaction each week which will keep you motivated to continue.

Get Exercise Out Of The Way First

For those who dread exercise but do it just the same, one of the best ways to avoid boredom is to get it out of the way at the beginning of the day, if your commitments allow. By doing that, you can then look forward to the rest of the day. However, if it’s not something you enjoy, by leaving it until the end of the day, the closer it gets, the more you’ll dread the thought of it and the more likely you will be to quit.

Find Out What Motivates You

Exercise and sport should be fun and whilst it’s beneficial to adopt a routine, it shouldn’t be thought of as a regime you have to stick to. If that’s becoming the case, perhaps it’s time to question whether the type of exercise you’re doing is the wrong type if you’re constantly finding you’re not motivated. That’s the point where you may need to sit down and think of what type of sport or exercise would stimulate you. For example, there are those who would find the thought of pedalling nowhere on an exercise bike the essence of boredom and prefer to chase a ball around. Then for others, even that’s too tame and they prefer high-risk adventure sports. Ultimately, to maintain your enthusiasm for exercise, you have to find activities that are going to stimulate you, not those that you think are a burden.

London’s Life Coach – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

What is Life Coaching and how can it help me?

What is one to one coaching?

Life coaching is about making choices rather than unconscious decisions, so you cause what happens to you rather than doing what other people think you should. Just by helping you understand your belief system is negotiable (ie you’re not locked in for life) can totally change your perspective. Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. I want you to realise you have choices and how good it feels once you start making the right ones. We help clients discover exactly what will bring them the most happiness and satisfaction, and then we work together to achieve it as quickly and easily as possible.

Is life coaching like counselling?

No. Counselling concentrates on healing the past, while life coaching works on two levels: practical action planning to achieve goals, and helping clients understand themselves so life gets easier. WHO you are determines how well what you DO works and most of us have behaviour that holds us back from living our best life. We have many life strategies to help my clients understand what is behind their actions.

Isn’t life coaching similar to talking to my best friend?

No. Friends have a vested interest in remaining your friend so they may not always be fully honest or push you. A coach is unconditionally constructive which means only saying things that further your life. Part of my job is to make requests and suggestions, but we are more than happy for you to come up with alternatives!

How can I get the most out of one to one coaching?

By being willing to experiment and try out new things. We will help you re-look at old assumptions and expectations, stop tolerating and suffering stuff in your life, and encourage you to achieve goals that are bigger than you thought possible. To get the most out of our time together, please come to the call with enthusiasm. It’s your time so make it work for you.

Why does life skills coaching work?

A coach is trained to listen fully to what you say, what you are trying to say, and what you are not saying. We believe you have the answers and we will ask the right questions to bring them out. we also want the very best for you and am there to support you 100%.

How do I get started?

If you are looking to find a life coach based in the UK, call us to book a complimentary 30 minute introduction to coaching session. At the end of the session, if you think you will benefit from life coaching we will set up your first meeting.

What do we talk about with my life coach during the session?

Your welcome pack contains a call preparation sheet, this asks about your opportunities, challenges, what you’ve accomplished since our last session and how you want to use your coach on the call. All of which shows us exactly what we need to concentrate on during our time together.

Isn’t it strange telling so much to a stranger?

A life coach is trained to understand a person very quickly so you will probably be surprised how well we know you after only a short time. And a life coach will never gossip. we will never discuss or even hint at what we have talked about. And my client list is confidential too so the only way people will know you are working with me is if you tell them.

Isn’t it a lot of money to spend?

Coaching is an investment, and there’s no better investment than in yourself. Take a minute to think about what you would like to achieve in the next three months. A life coach will help you reach all your goals, plus design a life that brings you the most happiness and satisfaction. Only you can decide how much this is worth to you.

If your ready to be the best you can be then call us on 0845 194 9644

Motivation In Schools – Empower Your Pupils.


Motivating Students To Learn with www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Some students are more motivated to learn than others and motivating those who aren’t is one of the greatest challenges that all teachers are faced with regularly.

Motivating people in general is all about getting to understand as much as you can about them as individuals. We all have different learning styles and we’re all motivated by different things in life so there should never be a ‘one size fits all’ approach to teaching.
By understanding your students as individuals and by addressing their needs, you have more chance of motivating them.

Importance of Being Able to Attain Success

Some students find academic work much easier than others. In a classroom setting where there are often people of very different abilities, those students who tend to become demoralised often do so because they feel as though they can never succeed when compared against others with more natural ability.

One of the ways of motivating students who feel like that is to emphasise that education isn’t about competing against others. It’s simply about fulfilling your own potential. As soon as students feel less pressured to make comparisons and can instead focus on their own performance, their motivation often increases.

Ways in which you can facilitate that can include giving them longer to complete assignments or helping them personally on a one to one level so that they can get to grips with more complex issues. By overcoming hurdles and being able to attain their own goals, it will help in motivating them to achieve their very best.

Make It Relevant

For many students, they need to be able to relate their learning experiences to the real world for it to have any sense of meaning to them. For example, students today may be completely turned off by learning about what went on in the Second World War but by relating that to the present day and more recent examples of global conflicts they might be more familiar with, it will become more motivating and, using this example, you could, perhaps, relate it to things like intolerance in society, power struggles, racial prejudice and even gang land culture, for example.

Using Different Learning Styles

You should look to vary your lessons by incorporating different learning styles. Field trips, group assignments, role plays and using the likes of audio visual aids can all play a part in motivating students.

Setting Achievable Objectives

We all know that to remain motivated to do anything, we all need to set ourselves goals which are achievable and measurable. It’s perfectly acceptable to have high expectations but make sure that whatever tasks you’re setting for your students that they can be achieved within the timescale you’ve set for them.

Privileges & Rewards

Some teachers will only use the ‘stick’ approach when trying to maintain some kind of discipline. However, to get the best out of people, they also need to have the proverbial ‘carrot’ dangled in front of them. Motivating students is not that dissimilar to motivating people at work. Therefore, having rewards and incentives as you often do at work can also help in motivating them to succeed.
Things like a packet of sweets or a box of crayons can be a good incentive for primary school children whilst things like book tokens, CD or computer games vouchers can often motivate older ones. And, if the budget doesn’t allow it, even awards certificates to mark somebody’s achievements can be sufficient motivation.

With any rewards system, however, it’s important that each and every student has the opportunity to benefit so giving rewards for things like ‘most improved performance’ and not just recognising the academic high achievers is vital.

It’s not always easy nor is it possible to motivate everybody you’ll ever teach. External factors such as a student’s home life, their parents’ approach to life and peer pressure can all affect the motivation levels of a student. The important thing is to recognise the fact that motivating does play a huge role in the ability to learn new things and do your best to ensure that you’re creating the right kind of environment in which students can prosper and flourish.

Motivational Speaking in London – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Motivational Speaking

Whilst speeches are something that we’re all likely to have to make at some point in our lives, motivational speakers give speeches which take things to another level.
In motivational speaking, it’s nothing to do with making a toast or delivering an acceptance speech for an award you’ve won. It involves a great deal of skill and the idea behind motivational speaking is to capture the attention of your audience in such a way that it feels empowered to act upon the message you’re conveying.

Motivating people can often be difficult at the best of times so it’s important that a great deal of thought goes into the writing and delivery of the speech. Here are some of the things you should bear in mind.

Know Your Subject Matter

It is necessary for motivational speakers to care passionately for the subject matter they’re going to be delivering in a speech. Motivational speaking is very much like a ‘call to arms’ in which the speaker should be aiming to deliver a motivational and often highly emotive speech which should literally grab the audience’s attention and leave them feeling as committed to the cause as the speech maker. They should leave the audience feeling inspired.

Good examples of where you see motivational speakers at their best are sports coaches and politicians, particularly at party conference time. They basically grab the audience’s attention by the scruff of the neck and leave them hanging on every word. In order to motivate people, you’ll already have had to gain their respect. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be some kind of business leader.

A motivational speech can be given by a parent to a child, for example. The important thing is that your passion for what you’re talking about needs to shine through.

Know Your Audience

It’s also important to tailor your speech to your particular audience if you’re going to have them engage with you and what you’re saying. A prime example would be a politician. When making a speech, he or she isn’t going to deliver the same speech to his party members as the one he’d give if he was visiting a high school. He might still wish to convey a similar message but the speeches will be very different.

Therefore, it’s important when writing a motivational speech that you tap into the interests or concerns of the audience you’re addressing in order that they can relate to you. In a work situation, you’ll already have a head start as you’ll all have the common bond of working for the same company. You’re also likely to know many members of the audience and what makes them tick.

Going in ‘blind’ however, you’re going to need to do some research and to find out a little more about the lifestyle and social and cultural and background of your audience if you truly want to tap into their psyche.

Use Action Phrases & Climax Builders

Motivational speakers need to build trust and confidence in their audience if they want to inspire them. Therefore, when making your key points, it’s important that you try to illustrate this with some examples from your own experience. Phrases such as “do not hesitate”, “think positively” and “sign up” or other more relevant phrases for your speech can be dropped in here and there and, as you’ll notice, they’ve been written in the form of a command which, in essence, is akin to motivation.
So, whilst you’re not literally commanding anyone to do anything, dropping the odd phrase in which has the subliminal effect of a command is more likely to have a more powerful effect in terms of the action you want your audience to take.

Good motivational speeches ebb and flow but for each key point you want to get across, you need to write it in such a way that it builds and builds into a climax. Motivational speakers will write their speeches in such a way that at the point where they want to make the biggest impact, they’ll summarise the point they’ve been making in one or two key climactic sentences.
At the same time, they might speak a little more loudly and emphasise each word with an exaggeration of their body language, often using their arms or hands to hammer home the point.

Motivational speakers can be used for many different purposes. They can improve the public’s perception of a company and increase the company’s credibility. They can be used to build trust and can provide confidence and comfort to people. They’re possibly the hardest type of speeches to pull off. However, written and presented professionally, they can be extremely powerful and can provide a great deal of motivation.

Motivation in Sport.. www.empower-your-life.co.uk

http://www.empower-your-life.co.uk/sports_attitude.htm

No matter how good your intentions are when you take up a sport or pursue some kind of exercise regime, at some point your motivation levels will dip and you’ll find it hard to summon up the enthusiasm to continue. There are several different ways you can combat boredom, some of which are more appropriate if you’re, say, working out at the gym than exercising outdoors. However, the list of ‘boredom-busters’ below should provide you with some ideas and inspiration for staving off boredom in your chosen exercise or sport.

Read Or Listen To Music

If you exercise at the gym, it can sometimes get a bit monotonous. But it’s an ideal place to combine training with a spot of reading or listening to the radio or to your music collection on your MP3 player. Several of the machines you’ll often find in gyms will be designed so that you can place a book or magazine in front of you whilst you work out and you can even get audio books to listen to if music’s not your thing. Many gyms even have TVs you can watch whilst exercising. Basically, by taking your mind off the exercise itself, it can often help to alleviate boredom.

Get A Friend Involved Or Even A Stranger

A lot of people prefer to exercise in solitude but it takes a lot of discipline and sometimes the lack of social interaction can induce boredom. Therefore, why not get a friend to join you or even ask a stranger at the gym. In addition to the social interaction, if you’ve arranged to meet somebody, then you’re less likely to duck out and you can always work on things like time challenges such as the number of reps each of you can achieve in a minute on a particular piece of equipment, for example. By becoming more competitive, it’s less likely you’ll feel bored.

Set Yourself Targets

When it comes to solitary gym work in particular, a lot of people tend to set themselves a specific length of time they are going to stay at the gym and that’s about it. However, if you set targets for yourself on each piece of equipment you use, you’ll gain more motivation by keeping records and trying to beat your previous best on your next visit.

Try Different Equipment And Different Activities

Whether it’s badminton you play or the rowing machine or exercise bike you use at the gym, it can get a bit boring if you don’t mix it up a bit from time to time. So, on occasion, make it a point at the gym to use some of the other equipment you haven’t tried before or if you’re playing badminton, try tennis or a squash session some time or some other sport. Also, if you exercise in a gym, try to incorporate some exercise that takes place outdoors occasionally. A run in your local wood in the fresh air enjoying the nature and wildlife can make a very pleasant change.

Reward Yourself

Exercise can sometime seem like one long treadmill that never ends so it’s important that you mark your dedication and achievement by rewarding yourself whenever you achieve a specific goal. Treat yourself to a meal out or buy a new item of clothing if you reach your target or goal. By setting goals and rewards for achieving them, it’s more likely you’ll stay motivated.

Join A Team

Boredom when exercising is usually more commonly associated with those who exercise alone. Therefore, why not mix and match your exercise regime by joining some kind of team sport activity once or twice a week. That way, you’ll still be getting the benefits of exercise but you’ll also be making new friends and will be looking forward to the social interaction each week which will keep you motivated to continue.

Get Exercise Out Of The Way First

For those who dread exercise but do it just the same, one of the best ways to avoid boredom is to get it out of the way at the beginning of the day, if your commitments allow. By doing that, you can then look forward to the rest of the day. However, if it’s not something you enjoy, by leaving it until the end of the day, the closer it gets, the more you’ll dread the thought of it and the more likely you will be to quit.

Find Out What Motivates You

Exercise and sport should be fun and whilst it’s beneficial to adopt a routine, it shouldn’t be thought of as a regime you have to stick to. If that’s becoming the case, perhaps it’s time to question whether the type of exercise you’re doing is the wrong type if you’re constantly finding you’re not motivated. That’s the point where you may need to sit down and think of what type of sport or exercise would stimulate you. For example, there are those who would find the thought of pedalling nowhere on an exercise bike the essence of boredom and prefer to chase a ball around. Then for others, even that’s too tame and they prefer high-risk adventure sports. Ultimately, to maintain your enthusiasm for exercise, you have to find activities that are going to stimulate you, not those that you think are a burden.

Motivating Students – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Before reading the following, please remember what it was like to be a pupil, no matter what era, class or even wealth of school you attended, schools are still labelled with the same “tag”..

The Important Person…

Some students seem naturally enthusiastic about learning, but many need-or expect-their instructors to inspire, challenge, and stimulate them: “Effective learning in the classroom depends on the teacher’s ability … to maintain the interest that brought students to the course in the first place” (Ericksen, 1978, p. 3).

Whatever level of motivation your students bring to the classroom it will be transformed, for better or worse, by what happens in that classroom.

Unfortunately, there is no single magical formula for motivating students. Many factors affect a given student’s motivation to work and to learn (Bligh, 1971; Sass, 1989): interest in the subject matter, perception of its usefulness, general desire to achieve, self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as patience and persistence. And, of course, not all students are motivated by the same values, needs, desires, or wants. Some of your students will be motivated by the approval of others, some by overcoming challenges.

Researchers have begun to identify those aspects of the teaching situation that enhance students’ self-motivation (Lowman, 1984; Lucas, 1990; Weinert and Kluwe, 1987; Bligh, 1971). To encourage students to become self-motivated independent learners, teachers can do the following:

•Give frequent, early, positive feedback that supports students’ beliefs that they can do well.
•Ensure opportunities for students’ success by assigning tasks that are neither too easy nor too difficult.
•Help students find personal meaning and value in the material.
•Create an atmosphere that is open and positive.
•Help students feel that they are valued members of a learning community.
Research has also shown that good everyday teaching practices can do more to counter student apathy than special efforts to attack motivation directly (Ericksen, 1978). Most students respond positively to a well-organized lesson taught by an enthusiastic teacher who has a genuine interest in students and what they learn. Thus activities you undertake to promote learning will also enhance students’ motivation.

General Strategies

Capitalize on students’ existing needs.

Students learn best when incentives for learning in a classroom satisfy their own motives for enrolling in the course. Some of the needs your students may bring to the classroom are the need to learn something in order to complete a particular task or activity, the need to seek new experiences, the need to perfect skills, the need to overcome challenges, the need to become competent, the need to succeed and do well, the need to feel involved and to interact with other people. Satisfying such needs is rewarding in itself, and such rewards sustain learning more effectively than do grades. Design assignments, in-class activities, and discussion questions to address these kinds of needs. (Source: McMillan and Forsyth, 1991)

Make students active participants in learning.

Students learn by doing, making, writing, designing, creating, solving. Passivity dampens students’ motivation and curiosity. Pose questions. Don’t tell students something when you can ask them. Encourage students to suggest approaches to a problem or to guess the results of an experiment. Use small group work. See “Leading a Discussion,” “Supplements and Alternatives to Lecturing,” and “Collaborative Learning” for methods that stress active participation. (Source: Lucas, 1990)

Ask students to analyse what makes their classes more or less “motivating.”

Sass (1989) asks his classes to recall two recent class periods, one in which they were highly motivated and one in which their motivation was low. Each student makes a list of specific aspects of the two classes that influenced his or her level of motivation, and students then meet in small groups to reach consensus on characteristics that contribute to high and low motivation. In over twenty courses, Sass reports, the same eight characteristics emerge as major contributors to student motivation:

•Instructor’s enthusiasm
•Relevance of the material
•Organization of the course
•Appropriate difficulty level of the material
•Active involvement of students
•Variety
•Rapport between teacher and students
•Use of appropriate, concrete, and understandable examples

Incorporating Instructional Behaviours That Motivate Students

Hold high but realistic expectations for your students.

Research has shown that a teacher’s expectations have a powerful effect on a student’s performance. If you act as though you expect your students to be motivated, hardworking, and interested in the course, they are more likely to be so. Set realistic expectations for students when you make assignments, give presentations, conduct discussions, and grade examinations. “Realistic” in this context means that your standards are high enough to motivate students to do their best work but not so high that students will inevitably be frustrated in trying to meet those expectations. To develop the drive to achieve, students need to believe that achievement is possible -which means that you need to provide early opportunities for success. (Sources: American Psychological Association, 1992; Bligh, 1971; Forsyth and McMillan, 1991 -1 Lowman, 1984)

Help students set achievable goals for themselves.

Failure to attain unrealistic goals can disappoint and frustrate students. Encourage students to focus on their continued improvement, not just on their grade on any one test or assignment. Help students evaluate their progress by encouraging them to critique their own work, analyse their strengths, and work on their weaknesses. For example, consider asking students to submit self-evaluation forms with one or two assignments. (Sources: Cashin, 1979; Forsyth and McMillan, 1991)

Tell students what they need to do to succeed in your course.

Don’t let your students struggle to figure out what is expected of them. Reassure students that they can do well in your course, and tell them exactly what they must do to succeed. Say something to the effect that “If you can handle the examples on these problem sheets, you can pass the exam. People who have trouble with these examples can ask me for extra help.” Or instead of saying, “You’re way behind,” tell the student, “Here is one way you could go about learning the material. How can I help you?” (Sources: Cashin, 1979; Tiberius, 1990)

Strengthen students’ self-motivation.

Avoid messages that reinforce your power as an instructor or that emphasize extrinsic rewards. Instead of saying, “I require,” “you must,” or “you should,” stress “I think you will find. . . ” or “I will be interested in your reaction.” (Source: Lowman, 1990)

Avoid creating intense competition among students.

Competition produces anxiety, which can interfere with learning. Reduce students’ tendencies to compare themselves to one another. Bligh (1971) reports that students are more attentive, display better comprehension, produce more work, and are more favourable to the teaching method when they work cooperatively in groups rather than compete as individuals. Refrain from public criticisms of students’ performance and from comments or activities that pit students against each other. (Sources: Eble, 1988; Forsyth and McMillan, 1991)

Be enthusiastic about your subject.

An instructor’s enthusiasm is a crucial factor in student motivation. If you become bored or apathetic, students will too. Typically, an instructor’s enthusiasm comes from confidence, excitement about the content, and genuine pleasure in teaching. If you find yourself uninterested in the material, think back to what attracted you to the field and bring those aspects of the subject matter to life for your students. Or challenge yourself to devise the most exciting way to present the material, however dull the material itself may seem to you.

Structuring the Course to Motivate Students

Work from students’ strengths and interests.

Find out how students feel about the subject matter, and what their expectations are. Then try to devise examples, case studies, or assignments that relate the course content to students’ interests and experiences. For instance, a chemistry professor might devote some lecture time to examining the contributions of chemistry to resolving environmental problems. Explain how the content and objectives of your course will help students achieve their educational, professional, or personal goals. (Sources: Brock, 1976; Cashin, 1979; Lucas, 1990)

When possible, let students have some say in choosing what will be studied.
Give students options on term papers or other assignments (but not on tests). Let students decide between two locations for the field trip, or have them select which topics to explore in greater depth. If possible, include optional or alternative units in the course. (Sources: Ames and Ames, 1990; Cashin, 1979; Forsyth and McMillan, 1991; Lowman, 1984)

Increase the difficulty of the material as the semester progresses.
Give students opportunities to succeed at the beginning of the semester. Once students feel they can succeed, you can gradually increase the difficulty level. If assignments and exams include easier and harder questions, every student will have a chance to experience success as well as challenge. (Source: Cashin, 1979)

Vary your teaching methods.

Variety reawakens students’ involvement in the course and their motivation. Break the routine by incorporating a variety of teaching activities and methods in your course: role playing, debates, brainstorming, discussion, demonstrations, case studies, audiovisual presentations, guest speakers, or small group work. (Source: Forsyth and McMillan, 1991)

De-emphasizing Grades

Emphasize mastery and learning rather than grades.

Ames and Ames (1990) report on two secondary school math teachers. One teacher graded every homework assignment and counted homework as 30 percent of a student’s final grade. The second teacher told students to spend a fixed amount of time on their homework (thirty minutes a night) and to bring questions to class about problems they could not complete. This teacher graded homework as satisfactory or unsatisfactory, gave students the opportunity to redo their assignments, and counted homework as 10 percent of the final grade. Although homework was a smaller part of the course grade, this second teacher was more successful in motivating students to turn in their homework. In the first class, some students gave up rather than risk low evaluations of their abilities. In the second class, students were not risking their self-worth each time they did their homework but rather were attempting to learn. Mistakes were viewed as acceptable and something to learn from.

Researchers recommend de-emphasizing grading by eliminating complex systems of credit points; they also advise against trying to use grades to control non-academic behaviour (for example, lowering grades for missed classes) (Forsyth and McMillan, 1991; Lowman 1990). Instead, assign ungraded written work, stress the personal satisfaction of doing assignments, and help students measure their progress.

Design tests that encourage the kind of learning you want students to achieve.
Many students will learn whatever is necessary to get the grades they desire. If you base your tests on memorizing details, students will focus on memorizing facts. If your tests stress the synthesis and evaluation of information, students will be motivated to practice those skills when they study. (Source: McKeachie, 1986)

Avoid using grades as threats.

As McKeachie (1986) points out, the threat of low grades may prompt some students to work hard, but other students may resort to academic dishonesty, excuses for late work, and other counterproductive behaviour.

Motivating Students by Responding to Their Work

Give students feedback as quickly as possible.

Return tests and papers promptly, and reward success publicly and immediately. Give students some indication of how well they have done and how to improve. Rewards can be as simple as saying a student’s response was good, with an indication of why it was good, or mentioning the names of contributors: “Cherry’s point about pollution really synthesized the ideas we had been discussing.” (Source: Cashin, 1979)
Reward success.
Both positive and negative comments influence motivation, but research consistently indicates that students are more affected by positive feedback and success. Praise builds students’ self-confidence, competence, and self-esteem. Recognize sincere efforts even if the product is less than stellar. If a student’s performance is weak, let the student know that you believe he or she can improve and succeed over time. (Sources: Cashin, 1979; Lucas, 1990)

Introduce students to the good work done by their peers.

Share the ideas, knowledge, and accomplishments of individual students with the class as a whole:

•Make available copies of the best papers and essay exams.
•Provide class time for students to read papers or assignments submitted by classmates.
•Have students write a brief critique of a classmate’s paper.
•Schedule a brief talk by a student who has experience or who is doing a research paper on a topic relevant to your lecture.

Be specific when giving negative feedback.

Negative feedback is very powerful and can lead to a negative class atmosphere. Whenever you identify a student’s weakness, make it clear that your comments relate to a particular task or performance, not to the student as a person. Try to cushion negative comments with a compliment about aspects of the task in which the student succeeded. (Source: Cashin, 1979)

Avoid demeaning comments.

Many students in your class may be anxious about their performance and abilities. Be sensitive to how you phrase your comments and avoid offhand remarks that might prick their feelings of inadequacy.

Avoid giving in to students’ pleas for “the answer” to homework problems.

When you simply give struggling students the solution, you rob them of the chance to think for themselves. Use a more productive approach (adapted from Fiore, 1985):

•Ask the students for one possible approach to the problem.
•Gently brush aside students’ anxiety about not getting the answer by refocusing their attention on the problem at hand.
•Ask the students to build on what they do know about the problem.
•Resist answering the question “is this right?” Suggest to the students a way to check the answer for themselves.
•Praise the students for small, independent steps.

If you follow these steps, your students will learn that it is all right not to have an instant answer. They will also learn to develop greater patience and to work at their own pace. And by working through the problem, students will experience a sense of achievement and confidence that will increase their motivation to learn.

Does Your Past Predict Your Future

Does Your Past Predict Your Future?

By

Benjamin Bonetti

Whether you think it does, or you think it doesn’t- you’re probably right…

One of the major barriers to personal change – to personal growth – is the impact of our experience on our enthusiasm.

If you’ve spent the last 8 years failing to find your life partner – isn’t reasonable to assume that it’s not going to happen – or at least – that it’s going to be horribly difficult?

This is precisely why many people are sceptical about the idea that they can have the life they want, and they see those that say differently as opportunistic charlatans.

That seems reasonable – because they have the first-hand, incontrovertible evidence of their own lives to tell them that things don’t change – or that change is horribly difficult and something to be feared.

This is at the heart of personal growth.

Tony Robbins says: “The past does not predict the future – unless you live in it”.

That last part – “unless you live in it” is the key – because we all do. Couple that with another favourite quote of mine:

“If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got”.

So – if you continue to be the same person you were last year, then you can and should expect that this year will be pretty much the same.

If you look back at your record of jobs, wealth, health, fitness or happiness or whatever you’re interested in, then it’s actually REASONABLE to expect the same record for the future – IF (this is the key) IF you do now, what you did last year.

So the plan should be to do things differently. Understanding that is an essential step forward, but it’s depressingly not the whole solution.

THE ZONE

To achieve what you want your going to have to leave your comfort zone and move into the “stretch zone”.

This is the ONLY zone where personal change happens. If you feel you want to do something, then you’re in your comfort zone – which is the wrong zone! You have to do the things you don’t want to do.

Examples of being in your stretch zone might be:

a. Wearing things which are just “NOT YOU” – after all, we want to change some aspects of what being you means

b. Changing jobs, “I am not telling or even suggesting you all go and find new jobs!”

c. Taking up an activity which “people like you” don’t do (but a part of you likes the thought of)

d. Smiling at people you don’t know (yet) or like.

e. Doing things which might develop into opportunities – MAKING CHANCES

f. Leaving a “bad” relationship.

g. Giving yourself a goal and doing everything possible to achieve it!

IT’S NOT GOING TO BE EASY

Making change like this is difficult – that’s why 99.9% of us never do it through choice. The major changes are thrust upon us – like serious illness, divorce, being fired, etc. But it’s important to accept that this is all in our heads, and so in principle – in our control.

In the NLP world we describe this as “Re-framing”. If you want this change, then you’ll have to work on it. Its not going to happen without doing something first.

You can choose to see it as a never-ending, doomed-to-failure, pointless, painful, but-there’s-no-other-game-in-town struggle until death.

Or

You can choose to see it as a brave new adventure which could be intrinsically enjoyable, and during which wonderful things can and will happen (as well as a few bad ones, as we both now know). In practice, I guess you’ll see it as both at different times; you could try to see it in the second frame more often and you can choose (to some degree) to look forward more often that you look back (at your recent relationship break-up, for example).

“Don’t wish the world were easier, wish that you were tougher”.

If you believe that you would be happier living in “A Better World” then take advantage of our 30 Minute FREE Consultations.

Bad Habits – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Clear Those Bad Habits NOW!

By

Benjamin Bonetti

Each and every one of us have bad habits, some inherited, some learnt and some still to come, but at what stage do you decide to let them go?

The Answer– NOW!

We are trained in a large number of therapies, so we can provide the most “flexibility” when it comes to treating people like you.

What Habits do people want to give up?

A habit is something in your world, that isn’t serving you in a positive way.

A habit can be anything!

Think of something that you “should” have changed but it now has become a habit?

The bad habit?

It’s proven that our intellect does not drive our behaviour. In fact it is our beliefs about the world and our part in it, that determine what we do.
The beliefs that you formed during your childhood have got you to where you are today. They direct the course of your life without question or answer. You created your bad habit.
Why should YOU give up?
This is something “ONLY YOU” can answer; we do not offer the solution or recommend the right or wrong way of doing things. We do however give you the tools to move in the right direction.

Get started NOW!

Take advantage of our Online Coaching or Telephone Coaching Programme for a cost effective way of dismissing those habits.

But to get started you can:

• Be happy; be aware of the habit and when you do it!

• Find the tools for the job. If you have a drink, drugs or smoking habit try joining a local club!

• Understand what will happen when the habit is gone and focus on this!

• Picture your life without the habit, go forward and see how great things can be without your old habit.

• Remind yourself hourly of the long term benefits of achieving a habit free life.

Is moving forward the right thing for you?
]
What will happen if you continue on the path that you are following right NOW!

ANSWER?

Change can be difficult, but it also can be exciting! If you enjoy the journey, the results will be MASSIVE.

What happens if you have tried before and it hasn’t worked?

Do children give up walking because the first time they didn’t succeed??
If you have tried something before and it hasn’t worked, we try something else!

Contact Us!

If you are ready to start making changes and we are the right people to help eliminate those bad habits then the next step is simple.

Sales Managers Training, Motivate Your Staff, Unlock Your Potential

Unlock Your Staff’s Potential

By

Benjamin Bonetti

Running a business is like being your very own captain of a ship, without the full commitment of each member of the team it will take you longer to get to the next port.

In order to get to the next port quicker, more efficiently and without hitting any icebergs, you must have 100% commitment from your crew, from the lookout of the crows nest to the shovel in the boiler room. If one member of the crew is less motivated than others, no matter how hard the boiler crew work, without the lookout crew your ship is going to sink!

You may be travelling against the wind at times, but it is easier with a motivated, co-corporative team than without.

Motivational Training

We work with your management team, providing them with useful techniques to unlock the potential of your most valuable recourse – your employees “The Crew”, ensuring you achieve realistic results, in a shorter timeframe with existing or fewer recourse’s.

In this current climate the pressure to work smarter and to a more cost effective standard is MASSIVE, resulting in a “highly negative” management style or “I’ll do it myself” philosophy.

Research has shown that when employees are managed this way, they provide up to 25% “less” than when fully motivated.

You may have already experienced this with your staff, with the situation worsening to “stress” or other “stress related illnesses finally resulting in absenteeism. Cost to you massive!

The good news is that, we are able to increase the interaction and communication among your managers and employees, with the implementation of our unique coaching style, proven to dramatically improve the performance of individuals, teams and whole organisations.

This coaching programme complements your organisation, increasing the motivation and empowering employees to clearly remain focused on your business

If this sounds like a programmes that can assist your management team then read on!!

It starts from the Top!

• How does your senior team interact with employees?

• Are you or your senior team approachable?

• When do you allow your employees to be heard?

• Are you aware what your staff say about your business after work?

• Do all of your staff know your business? (you will be surprised)?

• Do each of your staff know where to go if there is a problem with management?

• Are your managers accountable for their team?

• How do you reward your experienced performers?

• What stimulates your lower management?

• Who currently motivates your managers?

• Do your staff know where your business going?

We believe that everyone can benefit from motivation or empowerment. To hear more how we can move your business forward. Call us on 0845 195 9644 or email info@empower-your-life.co.uk

Career Coaching – Look for the Job Within – Life Coaching

Find Your New Job Within!

By

Benjamin Bonetti

Are you constantly in search of the perfect job, do you strive towards the next job title only to be disappointed? Love the praise and bonuses, but feel there is an empty hole that needs filling?

If you are this type of person then your drive sets you apart from others, imagine what you could achieve if you channelled this energy into “one” job!

MASSIVE results….

And the solution?

In our experience, people who “feel” this way use work to complete an area of personal fulfilment! Is this you?

A new, better, different job can be a temporary solution to a continuing problem but will never resolve or deal with the root causes. The good news is that there is an answer, and it lies within your ability to resolve it.


The futures bright
! – exercise….

Think of a time when you were at your career peak, feeling more excited, energised and focused than ever before! Follow the questions below.

• What were you doing?

• Where were you?

• What can you hear, smell, see and feel?

• Who was there with you?

• What made it so good?

• How good did you feel?

• What did you do to celebrate?

How do you feel NOW! Remember how you achieved this “state” and “anchor” it accordingly.

You are probably feeling a lift in feelings, sense of increased alertness, even a smile. Can you imagine having the ability to access that feeling once again and to apply it to all your negative emotions at work!

You are likely to:

• make the calls you have been putting off.

• be articulate and energetic and people will want to help.

• meet the people you have been avoiding.

• network and look to assist others. In return others will assist you.

• have the difficult conversations.

• ask for the help and support you need.

• tackle the sensitive issues.

• find the words to express your feelings.

• listen to others and work together to find a way forward.

• face your fears and in doing so will defeat them.

Continuing your good work!

How can you use this technique to make each day easier?

• Forgive yourself and others, and let go of past disappointments.

• Take responsibility for your career and recognise you have the power to make it better.

• Get clear about your vision and where you are heading.

• Believe you can achieve it.

• Make a clear plan to reach your goals and reward yourself for positive steps forward.

You deserve a great career. You have the ability to make this happen. What are you waiting for?

Control Your Future – www.empower-your-life.co.uk

Does Your Past Predict Your Future?

By

Benjamin Bonetti

Whether you think it does, or you think it doesn’t- you’re probably right…

One of the major barriers to personal change – to personal growth – is the impact of our experience on our enthusiasm.

If you’ve spent the last 8 years failing to find your life partner – isn’t reasonable to assume that it’s not going to happen – or at least – that it’s going to be horribly difficult?

This is precisely why many people are sceptical about the idea that they can have the life they want, and they see those that say differently as opportunistic charlatans.

That seems reasonable – because they have the first-hand, incontrovertible evidence of their own lives to tell them that things don’t change – or that change is horribly difficult and something to be feared.

This is at the heart of personal growth.

Tony Robbins says: “The past does not predict the future – unless you live in it”.

That last part – “unless you live in it” is the key – because we all do. Couple that with another favourite quote of mine:

“If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got”.

So – if you continue to be the same person you were last year, then you can and should expect that this year will be pretty much the same.

If you look back at your record of jobs, wealth, health, fitness or happiness or whatever you’re interested in, then it’s actually REASONABLE to expect the same record for the future – IF (this is the key) IF you do now, what you did last year.

So the plan should be to do things differently. Understanding that is an essential step forward, but it’s depressingly not the whole solution.

THE ZONE

To achieve what you want your going to have to leave your comfort zone and move into the “stretch zone”.

This is the ONLY zone where personal change happens. If you feel you want to do something, then you’re in your comfort zone – which is the wrong zone! You have to do the things you don’t want to do.

Examples of being in your stretch zone might be:

a. Wearing things which are just “NOT YOU” – after all, we want to change some aspects of what being you means

b. Changing jobs, “I am not telling or even suggesting you all go and find new jobs!”

c. Taking up an activity which “people like you” don’t do (but a part of you likes the thought of)

d. Smiling at people you don’t know (yet) or like.

e. Doing things which might develop into opportunities – MAKING CHANCES

f. Leaving a “bad” relationship.

g. Giving yourself a goal and doing everything possible to achieve it!

IT’S NOT GOING TO BE EASY

Making change like this is difficult – that’s why 99.9% of us never do it through choice. The major changes are thrust upon us – like serious illness, divorce, being fired, etc. But it’s important to accept that this is all in our heads, and so in principle – in our control.

In the NLP world we describe this as “Re-framing”. If you want this change, then you’ll have to work on it. Its not going to happen without doing something first.

You can choose to see it as a never-ending, doomed-to-failure, pointless, painful, but-there’s-no-other-game-in-town struggle until death.

Or

You can choose to see it as a brave new adventure which could be intrinsically enjoyable, and during which wonderful things can and will happen (as well as a few bad ones, as we both now know). In practice, I guess you’ll see it as both at different times; you could try to see it in the second frame more often and you can choose (to some degree) to look forward more often that you look back (at your recent relationship break-up, for example).

“Don’t wish the world were easier, wish that you were tougher”.
