Networking – wing it and you’ll flap in the breeze

It is the inevitable topic of conversation at a networking event: Tell me about your job.

When I explain my life’s work — teaching leaders to achieve their dreams through powerful public speaking — my conversation partner often shrugs and says, “Oh, I could never deliver a speech. I get too nervous.”
My response: “What do you think you are doing right now?”

Make no mistake, when you network, you are delivering a series of minipresentations. If you don’t know how to put your best foot forward in these business-critical situations, you can forget about building your business or advancing your career.

Master networkers realize that attitude and preparation are vital ingredients for success. How do these pros set themselves up as winners in the networking arena? Let’s examine a dynamic dozen techniques:

Amal. A modern day parable about the meaning of life

It’s been said that the best things in life are free – although in our hyper-consumptive culture, you’d be hard-pressed to find many people who would agree with you.

Our friends at Spiritual Cinema Circle recently found a beautiful feature film entitled Amal. It’s a modern-day parable that tells the story of a man named Amal – a simple, humble auto-rickshaw driver in the colorful, bustling city of New Delhi, India. Content with the small but vital role he plays in life, to drive his customers throughout the city as safely as possible, Amal is a man who lives simply to do “the right thing” in every situation.

One day Amal drives an eccentric billionaire who, disguised as a vagabond, is searching the streets for the last morsel of humanity; someone he can leave all his money to. His children are ungrateful spoiled brats and his colleagues are corrupt, money-sucking leeches. Despite all his wealth, the old man wanders the city hoping to find the two things his money has never brought him – hope for humanity and peace for his soul. In Amal, he discovers a dying breed: a man who is honest, selfless, loving, and caring.

This riveting and surprising tale ultimately reveals that the poorest of men are sometimes the richest.

Enjoy the movies!

Nice people are winners

Rajesh Setty certainly believes so.

I observed time and again that nice people win BIG TIME in the long run. So this was part of my mini-research

How to Write Powerful Affirmations and Intentions

Everything in your life is the cause of what you think and believe. Take a good look at your life from a perspective that you are the creator. Even though you may not believe you can do anything about your life right now, do it anyway and make an inventory of your life as it is now.

? What do you like about it and what not?
? What would you like to change?
? What would your perfect life look like?

Setting goals and intentions in your life is the single most important task in the entire process of creating the life you always dreamed about.

Can you imagine that almost 95% of all people simply don’t do this? And the rest of the 5% do it, but only 10% of this small number ever reach their goals. That’s why so many people struggle and businesses fail.

Not enough people set clear intentions about what they want in life. Like other important things that could help us attain truly fulfilled lives, the simplest things in life are mostly overlooked.

How to Program Your Subconscious for Success

Setting goals and intentions is a conscious exercise. Achieving these goals is a spiritual and subconscious exercise. This is where the Dream Manifestation Wizard comes in. By using intentions combined with images and audio plus repetition, you program your subconscious in the most efficient way possible.

There are three ways to program your subconscious:

1. Intensity – Imagine putting your hand on a hot stove
2. Repetition – Remember learning poems?
3. Synergy – Conscious mind and subconscious mind work together

Craft Powerful Affirmations that Work Like Magic

After you have figured out what your perfect life would look like, formulate it into short and powerful goals and intentions.

The key to writing effective affirmations is that they must be positive and stated in the present moment. A good starting point is to use something you don’t like or you would like to change and then rephrase it. For example, you may not like being in debt. You can rewrite this into “Money is flowing to me easily and I enjoy it in abundance.” Use only words with positive associations. Don’t use the word “debt” as you don’t want your subconscious to create debt!

Now you may start to understand the inefficiency of signs and statements like these:“Don’t cross this line” or “Don’t get nervous about this.” Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between Do and Don’t. It is the job of the subconscious to manifest your thoughts, even if the thought is negative. The statements above will only increase what you don’t want, so be careful how you think about it and how you phrase it.

Choose Intentions that Align You with Your Life Dreams

Intentions are another powerful way to use the Dream Manifestation Wizard effectively. Intentions are more powerful than goals as they work on a higher consciousness level. Intentions create a new pathway in your life.

A path that you can follow until your life dreams are fulfilled.

When you craft intentions use a time frame, otherwise you are not able to break it apart into smaller goals. Lets assume you want to own your own home at some point. Decide when that should be and be precise about the details.

For example: “By the end of 2009 I live in my own 3b/2b townhouse.” Make sure you add a picture that’s a close match to the house you want. Next, create some supportive goals that act as milestones: “By the end of this month I have the perfect financial plan for buying my own home,” and “Within six months I have enough for a down payment,” and so on.

A Profound Way to Rewire Your Brain

Every time you see your goal or intention on the Wizard’s screen you physically rewire your brain by creating new neural pathways. This is the most powerful way to change the definition of yourself. In the beginning, your conscious mind may experience some resistance to your new goal or intention.

This simply means you are getting out of your comfort zone and growing. Over time it will get easier for your mind to accept these new commands. After a couple of weeks your brain will be completely rewired and your new goal, intention or belief will be fully integrated.

In a nutshell: Use affirmations to change your attitudes; use intentions to set a path that you will follow until it is fulfilled; use goals to set milestones for this path.
