Are You A Genius?

August 17, 2017

 

IQ is the measure of someones intellect. EQ is the measure of someones emotional intelligence and CQ is the measure of someones ability to communicate intelligently. But what really makes a genius a genius? Albert Einstein was a genius. Stephen Hawkins is a genius.  Michelangelo and Leonardo deVinci were also geniuses in their own right. Marie Curie, Virginia Wolf and Ludwig van Beethoven were considered genius, and the list goes on…

According to Websters dictionary Genius is defined as:  exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability.

Is it something in the brain that makes a genius? Is it intelligence, creativity, perseverance, or simply luck? Is it something from the divine?

Just because you are really smart and have a high IQ does not make you a genius. Through my studies and understanding, EQ and CQ are just as  important as IQ for getting the results you want in life. However that still will not make you a genius.

What if we can nurture someone to become a genius? Maybe the more we allow creativity, imagination and create a nurturing environment to become  part of a child’s life the more they can develop their brain to become geniuses? Through neuroscience we are getting closer to understanding what parts of the brain get activated when we use our creative skills.

I believe that you must have a strong purpose, have passion, perseverance and determination to unleash the genius inside of you! You also need support!!! Someone who believes in YOU!

If you need a coach, hire one, it will be the best investment you can make! Don’t be a smarty pants,thinking you know it all. Be a genius!!


Less Is More

August 10, 2017

Most of us are being bombarded with way too much information. I get about 200 e-mails a day. I make at least 10 phone calls a day and receive 10 or more daily. Then there is the information coming to me from many other sources as well. I avoid watching the news, however I do read articles in the NY Times and other sources that interest me.  I am always studying and learning something new ever day.Taking a webinar or going to a class. My mind can go into overload if I do not sift through what’s relevant and valuable to me.

Information is useless until all that data is processed down, and made simple. Until I can take it and apply it as knowledge and then reduces to further into wisdom, it has no relevance in my life.

Knowledge is the the accumulation of facts and date that you have learned about or experienced.

Wisdom is the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.

Knowledge is gained through learning facts.

Wisdom comes from observing experiences and learning from them in a way that affects future decisions and behaviors.

Knowledge is measuring that a desert path is 3.6 miles long.

Wisdom is bringing enough water for the duration of that hike.

Knowledge allows for change in response to new information or analyzes.

Wisdom is time less.

Wisdom is “Who we are” vs. “What we do.”

Wisdom governs choices, is the pursuit of knowledge, better communication and relationships.

I believe for the human race to survive and thrive we must surpass the information age and learn to be wise, which has no age, it is time less.

Here is a short video to help your quest for wisdom.

If you are looking for help sifting through all the overload of  information in your head and gaining clearly, I’m a phone call away.


Learn To Earn

3 Tips to Learning

1. Know why you are learning.

Your brain always needs a motive to learn something before it will actually do it. Learning actually has so many possible benefits that everyone should make it a top priority. You can learn how to be successful, you can learn from the mistakes of others, you can learn new useful skills, and you can learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. Don’t just take my word for it, many great men and women throughout history endorsed learning.

Albert Einstein said “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”

Henry Ford said “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”

Earl Nightingale said “The minute a man stops learning, our world will begin to pass him by. He will be left a lonely and disconsolate figure in its wake.”

Abraham Lincoln said “All I have learned, I learned from books.”

John Adams said “I read my eyes out and can’t read half enough…the more one reads the more one sees we have to read”.                                                                                                                                         Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Winston Churchill, Bruce Lee, Mahatma Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci, Confucius, Socrates, and more.  All of these people had something positive to say about learning. Learning is how you move up in life, and expand your awareness to new ideas.

  1. Form a habit of learning.

This is crucial. True life-long learners know they have a lot to learn, and that the more time spent learning the better. They cut down on distractions like television, radio, video games, and social media to free up more time for learning. They listen to audio books during commute. They read everyday. You don’t have to go to the extreme with this.

However imagine if you just made a habit of spending an hour a day reading. Over the course of a year that would add up to 365 hours spent reading! Don’t fall into the pessimistic trap of thinking you have to give up your life or spend hours every day reading for it to have any effect. Just make small changes, slightly adjust your habits in favor of learning, and watch how your life will start to change with all the new knowledge being poured into your brain.

As Mahatma Gandhi put it “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

3. Surround yourself with like minded people who support you.

Meet up with people who are experts in your topic of study. Go to classes, seminars, courses, live events, and network with the people there. Keep friends around who understand and see the benefit of life-long learning. Tell your friends and family what you plan to learn and get them to run accountability checks on you.

Life-long learners learn from a multitude of sources, especially when they really want to master a subject. Books, audio books, courses, seminars, other people, and mentors. These are all fair game for self-education and a life-long learner. Expect success and be confident that you will learn whatever it is you are trying to learn as this will make it easier for you to learn it! All of this will motivate you to stay focused on your goals and learn. Learning truly is a lifestyle.

Learning should be fun! If you want to explore how I can teach you to be a better learner to be a better earner, let’s talk. Always a free consultation.

Is It All An Illusion?

July 26, 2017

I think therefore I am.”   René Descartes

Have you ever wondered where consciousness come from?

Being conscious gives us the ability to feel sensations and to experience the world through the lens of our minds.  We can enjoy a beautiful day at the beach or appreciate the laughter of small children playing.  We get to feel pain and pleasure.

Our brain perceives nerve impulses from our physical world that get interpreted as sensations or conscious awareness of that stimulus that is triggering the feelings.  Consciousness is what psychologist’s call “theory of the mind”. However it is more than this. The mystery of consciousness is now being explored as an illusion. Maybe it is there only to amaze ourselves? Maybe it is there to see ourselves as spiritual beings having this human experience?

The chief benefits of being conscious feeds our self-worth, gives us the joys of life, eases our fear of death and most important, increases our respect for others.  Maybe instead of “I think therefore I am”  it really is I feel, therefore I am?

In this short video, you will get a glimpse of how magical we humans really are.

Use It or Loss It!

June 29, 2017

Success is the result of behavior, which is determined by attitudes, which are formed by conditioning, which takes place through spaced repetition.

Actually, it all starts with the thoughts we think, which will lead to the same choices. The same choices always create the same behaviors, and the same behaviors will always create the same experiences and the same experiences will always create the same emotions and those emotions will drive the same thoughts. Whew! So how do we change?

Through spaced repetition. 

Repetitive learning is the only vehicle to modify conditioning, which alters the attitude that controls behavior, which produces results we want.

Years ago when I wanted to change my negative thinking and behaviors, I would listen to audio tapes in my car when I was driving, watch motivational videos, read inspirational books, keep a gratitude journal, say affirmations, go to seminars, associate with positive people to change and most importantly, hire a coach! You know what? I still do the same things years later.

You must continue to change every day because if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Risk Being Alive!

June 15, 2017

risk being alive“It has been said,most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65. “Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it.” Les Brown

What’s the risk of being alive?  So many people are really afraid of being or doing something they really want to do,  something is holding them back. Fear! Limiting beliefs about not being good enough, smart enough, rich enough or you fill in the blanks… The greatest tragedy is dying with your dreams still in you!

I think back to  when I was a teenager and I had a desire to become a great dancer. I loved to dance and still do, however I didn’t have the confidence to pursue a career in it. I would listen to over peoples options like there are too many starving dancers and actors out there and you’ll never make a living doing this. I allowed other peoples limiting beliefs to clog my thinking. Now, besides coaching  I teach empowerment dance classes! How cool is that!!! It is never to late to do, be or have what you want. Determination, persistence, faith and passion will lead the way.

Check out my interview with Jack Canfield. I  Know I can be, do or have what ever I desire and so can you.

So, if you’re ready to risk being ALIVE and want to see how to make your dreams come true, let’s talk!

Negative thoughts produce, cortisol, adrenaline, and other potentially harmful hormones.
 More and more neuroscience is discovering how true this statement is.
How we communicate in business and in our personal lives are also effecting our chemistry. The hormone oxytocine is the tend and befriend hormone. It is a feel good hormone. It is a fabulous hormone to release into your bloodstream to attract new clients and establish warm and engaging relationships.It is the charismatic hormone and people will be naturally drawn to you.
Wouldn’t you want to learn how to at download this hormone at will?

We can learn to access this hormone at will through understanding a few simple techniques.

oxytocin
You must understand the great laws of nature to begin to use them in your favor.
The 1st law of nature is that everything is energy. EVERYTHING!!!
The 2nd law, is thoughts move energy.
The 3rd law is we are always working with the law of attraction or the law of repulsion.
PROFESSIONAL SALESPEOPLE ARE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATORS.
 One of the greatest problems in sales is communication, or the lack of it. To effectively lead a prospect, it is necessary to remember that you are communicating on three different levels of life, simultaneously.
To become a professional salesperson, effective communication is essential.
You cannot function in a truly dynamic, creative manner by yourself; you need a COACH or a team of COACHES trained in understanding these laws.

When it becomes a habit to help your prospects get what they want in life, the Law will see that your customers will be the medium through which your good will be delivered to you. That is the LAW.

 “The law of cause and effect is the law of laws.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
