  • CA020: What is visualization

    13/12/2014 Duración: 38min

    What does the word ‘visualization’ mean to you – what image does it conjure up in your mind?  Or maybe you’ve never given visualization much thought before now. In today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast we’re introducing visualization. We look at the basics of what is visualization and why visualization can be a powerful mind management technique to add to your self-development tool-kit. Visualization is about using the power of your mind, and your imagination in particular, to help you live your best life now and achieve your goals. “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein It’s a technique you can use to your advantage, to give you an extra edge and take you to the next level in your achievements.  And we talk on the show about some people who are doing just that, where visualization makes a real difference to their performance, and helps them become the best they can be. If you want to learn how to use the power of your imagination to mana

  • CA019: Affirmations to manage your mind

    06/12/2014 Duración: 44min

    Why use affirmations to manage your mind? Positive affirmations are a powerful tool and technique when it comes to managing your mind. They are positive, specific statements that focus you on the self-beliefs, behaviours and characteristics you need to achieve your goals and live the life you want. “An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change.” Louise Hay   The idea behind affirmations is that through repetition you gradually implant them into your subconscious mind. They help you manage your mind by exerting a positive influence on the way you think about yourself, and in turn the way you act. And in doing so, positive affirmations help to counteract the self-sabotaging, negative affirmations and thoughts that get in the way of achieving your desires and intentions. In episodes 17 and 18 of the Changeability Podcast we talked about what affirmations are, how to create your own and how to use them. This week we look at some different types of affirmations. We discuss

    29/11/2014 Duración: 40min

    You know you want to change or improve something in your life or business. So you set yourself a goal to state your intention to do something about it. And because you’ve listened to the Changeability Podcast you recognise a few negative self-beliefs and unhelpful limiting thoughts lurking in your mind that could potentially scupper the whole thing. Well now comes the exciting part – because this is where you start to tell your new story, as you affirm yourself and whatever it is you want to achieve.  Because today is the day we talk about how to make affirmations work for you. In episode 18 of our Changeability Podcast we look at how you can easily create your own personal positive affirmations and once you’ve got them, what you can do with them. “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things start to happen.” Muhammad Ali In today’s episode you find out: Why affirmations are a great way to help you change something and get more success A

    Ever thought about the power of your words?  We’re not talking about the affect your words have on others when you say something encouraging, uplifting or downright hurtful and unkind. No, we’re talking about the affect your words  have on you.  Every day we think thoughts in words and we tell ourselves things about what we’re doing, what we should do and what we have done.  We interpret the world through our words and thoughts.  Our words influence our thoughts and at the same time our thoughts influence our words. 90 years ago Florence Scovel Shinn wrote about the influence of our subconscious on what we do and the way our words “Any man who does not know the power of the word, is behind the times” Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It, 1925 Over the last few episodes we’ve looked at the unhelpful words that we tell ourselves, the words that with repetition lead us to the beliefs and thoughts that hold us back, keep us living small and limit our opportunities and achievements.

    What do you call the negative thoughts, feelings and emotions that clog up your mind and get in the way of you living your best life? In today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast we are delighted to be joined by a guest who calls them our ‘Head Trash’. The last few episodes of the Changeability Podcast have been about how to discover your negative limiting thoughts and self-beliefs – and last week (in episode 15) we explored a way of examining and releasing them. Today we look at it from a different angle with an expert with her own take on the subject and how to do it. Alexia Leachman joins us to talk about head trash - what it is and how you can clear your head trash. Alexia is the founder of Head Trash and host of the chart topping The Head Trash Show podcast.

    08/11/2014 Duración: 36min

    “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” ~ Socrates We all have thoughts and self-beliefs that impact how we go about every aspect of our life and business or work. Some are positive and some negative – and the negative ones limit what we do and how we do it – they get in the way of us achieving the goals we set ourselves and our vision for the life or business we want. So to stop this happening we want to find a way of minimising the effect of these disempowering thoughts that limit our opportunities. And to paraphrase the words of Socrates - we need to get rid of our old limiting thoughts, so we’re not inadvertently focusing our energy on ‘fighting the old’, but release them to focus on ‘building the new’ going forward. That’s what we’re talking about in today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast –practical ways of dealing with and letting go of limiting thoughts and self-beliefs.  We even talk you through a couple of simple exercises you c

    “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Shakespeare   Do you want more money? Ever feel you want more time to yourself? Think you’re too old or young to do some of the things you want to do?    If you answered yes to any of these questions then you’ll like today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast.  Because we’re looking at examples of the limiting thoughts we all have – and what self-beliefs hold you back.   The type of thinking that narrows our horizons, holds us back from living the biggest best version of our lives, and gets in the way of us achieving our goals.   In episode 14 you’ll find out about:   A super quick way to find what self-beliefs hold you back Common limiting thoughts around money What’s wrong with the fact that money doesn’t grow on trees The emotional side of wealth The fear of success (yes – really!)

    25/10/2014 Duración: 34min

    Getting what you want in life and business is not just about having vision and goals – great though they are. In episode 13 of the Changeability Podcast we take a step back from thinking about where you want to get to and what you want to achieve.  We take you back to the all-important starting point, to discover what’s sabotaging your best intentions and desires. To tease out what’s stopping you reaching your potential and getting in the way of positive change in your life or business. This is the crucial self-development step that most people miss out.  It’s understandable because we’re so keen to be getting on with our goals and actions. But it’s the key to unlocking the behaviours and characteristics that you need in order to make the changes you want to make in your life.  Without it you’re in danger of repeating the same behaviours and ways of thinking and acting that got you into the situation and position you now want to change – whatever that is, however big or small. “You are today where your though

We’ve been looking at goals and vision in the last few episodes of the Changeability Podcast, and it’s great to hear today from someone who’s making goals happen in such a real and positive way in his life and business.   This episode is full of actionable tips and techniques for anyone who wants to change or achieve something and have a positive outlook in their life and business.

  • CA011: How to set goals that work

    11/10/2014 Duración: 38min

    How to set goals that work "Humans work best when they have a sense of purpose. It doesn't seem to matter what it is, as long as there is one! Without a sense of purpose the Human lacks direction and meaning to life." Dr Steve Peters Goals help us define what we desire, give us clarity about what we want to achieve and articulate a sense of purpose. Goals are a way of making our vision and ambitions manageable and achievable. In setting goals we state our intentions, based on the big picture of how we want our business or life to look. Goal setting is an excellent mind management technique. Goals give us focus, determine our direction, and create the lens through which we look at business, life and it’s opportunities. In short, goals help us manage our minds to make changes or improvements in business and life - by helping us cultivate the optimum mindset to take the actions to bring those changes into reality. But how do we it?  How do we create goals that inspire and motivate us? In episode 11 of the Chan

    “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where” - said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat “So long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation. “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough. (Lewis Carroll from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 1865) Do you like goals – or does talk of goals make your eyes glaze over and your mind shut off? Do you set goals in your life or business – or do you think they’re a waste of time and energy? Have you heard people talking about goals but don’t know what the fuss is about? In episode 10 of the Changeability Podcast we’re talking all things goals. We explore the power of goals to help us manage our minds to get the life and business we want. What they are and why they work (or do they?) How goals take the vision or big picture of what we want (which we talked about in episode 9) and turn it into

    What is your vision in life & business? “When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.' It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” ~ Steve Jobs Last week we looked at an overview of 5 more techniques and tactics that can help us use our minds in a beneficial way for making changes and improvements in our life and business. Giving us more changeability so we can achieve our goals and desires.  It was part two of a 10-technique blueprint we’re laying out over the coming episodes here on the Changeability Podcast.

    “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go, they merely determine where you start.” Nido Qubein This is where the background theory of the first six episodes of the Changeability Podcast morphs into the practice.  Last week we started looking at practical techniques and actions to move us beyond the theory of how our minds work and hold us back from doing what we want to do.

    How to manage your mind “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” Jim Rohn Over the course of the first 6 episodes of the Changeability Podcast we’ve talked about our brains, our conscious and subconscious minds – their different but equally important roles and how the subconscious mind is many times more powerful than the subconscious (episode 2). We’ve seen how the things our conscious creative imaginative mind wants for us can be undermined by our subconscious, whose job it is to keep us safe within the realms of our current experience and way of looking at the world through our self-beliefs and habits. And in doing so can unintentionally restrict our awareness of opportunities and ultimately make the difference between us achieving what we want to or not (episode 3).  We’ve talked about how all change starts with a conscious thought (episode 4) and how important it is to take control. We constantly take choices whether we realize it or not – and one of the things we can choose to

    Take Control Of Your Life “Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.” ~ Stephen Covey If you’ve ever changed or improved something in your life or business, especially if it was something you’d struggled with, was there was a point where you made a choice and decision to take control and do something about it? Because we think there was. Whether we always remember the exact moment of taking charge or not, there is a point where we get ourselves into the right frame of mind or mindset to do what’s needed. If not nothing happens. In today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast we’re thinking about why the need to take control of your life is crucial if you want to change anything or get better at something.  In episode 5 you will find out:   You can take control of what you want to change (despite what some may think) Why going with the flow will not get you whe

    Thinking About Thoughts  “It's not what you have to ‘do’ that needs to change.  It’s first how you ‘think’ that needs to change. It’s who you have to ‘be’ in order to ‘do’ what needs to be done. The good news is that it doesn't cost much money to change your thinking. In fact, it can be done for free.” -  Robert Kiyosaki In episode 4 of the Changeability podcast we're thinking about something we don't often think about  - something that we all take for granted. We're thinking about thinking. And that means thinking about thoughts. As this week’s ‘quote of the show’ says - you can change your thinking and it can be done for free. This might depend a bit on your definition of ‘free’ as it’s not without some effort – but it can be done. And that’s what lies at the heart of the whole idea behind Changeability.  Changing our thinking to change or improve things in our life through managing our minds or mind management. It’s what the Changeability podcast (and book) is about. In a couple of episode’s time we’ll ge
