Paraliminals – Personal Development on Autopilot

After completing the PhotoReading program several months ago, I’ve been evaluating some of Learning Strategies’ other products. One in particular that really impressed me was their Paraliminals collection. This is a set of meditation/relaxation audios embedded with Holosync technology. Holosync employs what are called binaural beats, which use different sound frequencies to coax your brain…

Dealing With Close-Mindedness

A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. – Dale Carnegie How can you intelligently deal with people who are close-minded, totally stubborn in their beliefs and unreceptive to new ideas? Perhaps you feel certain you’re right and they’re wrong, but you can’t seem to convince them to see things your…

Heart-Centered Motivation

In 1998 I had an experience that had a deep and lasting effect on me. Erin and I were eating lunch at a local soup and salad place, and I noticed a woman cleaning the tables nearby. She looked very sad and depressed, as if she’d just been chastised by her supervisor or had gotten…

Manifesting Intentions Without Resistance

Suppose you set a positive intention, focus your energy on its manifestation for the highest good of all, see the promising alpha reflection, and then watch your results completely stagnate. Why did your intention fail to manifest as quickly as you desired? Whenever this happens the root cause is that you failed to become a…

Even Salespeople Are Human

If you ever walk through one of the Las Vegas hotel/casinos, you may be approached by a well-dressed individual who says to you, “Hi! How long are you in town for? Would you like some free show tickets?” If you talk to such people, you’ll discover that the free tickets are for real, but the…

Lightworker Syndrome

One obstacle that traps a lot of highly conscious people is what Erin and I call Lightworker Syndrome. This is what happens when someone wakes up to a higher level of consciousness, but they can’t figure out how to live on purpose and feed themselves at the same time. Such people have a lot of…

Life Lessons – Live

This is a very unusual post because it’s being written in the middle of a live workshop for the Las Vegas National Speakers Association. I previously mentioned this NSA workshop last month, and I’m happy to say there are about 50 attendees in the room, several of whom flew in from out of town. Presently…

Traveling the World

Traveling the world is one of my key goals for the next five years, especially since I’ve never been outside the USA. The only reason I haven’t done it yet is the youth of my kids, ages 3 and 6. They don’t travel very well, and there’s no way I’d want to take them out…

Forum Traffic Explosion

The new personal development forums have been exploding with traffic over the last 2-1/2 days. There are already over 3000 posts, and registered members will probably pass 1000 by the end of the day. There are so many great topics being discussed that I regret it’s humanly impossible to keep up with them all. I…

The forums are really bustling with activity on a variety of personal development topics. Erin and I have both been popping in and out…
