Words of Wisdom from Deepak Chopra

February 25, 2011

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Deepak Chorpa and asked him for a few words of wisdom that he could share with Job Seekers or anyone looking for a way to reinvent themselves in the current economy.

He was very generous with his words and here is what he had to say!

Interview with Deepak Chopra and Ron Nash:

My thoughts:
Many people may say it’s easy for Deepak to give such advice because he’s already successful. Yes he is very successful and has been for a long time, however, Deepak has had to build his own road to walk on. No one gave him his fame and fortune, he had to build his road stone by stone.

Thus his wisdom is solid and his words powerful. If you take them to heart and apply them you will find the gift that he is giving. Gotham Chopra, his son, wrote a book entitled, “Walking Wisdom”, which I highly encourage you to read. The book gives some amazing insight into world of the Chorpa family as Deepak was building his road. You can find Walking Wisdom on amazon.com or at any bookstore.

If you are interested in living your life based on your dreams and passion and dare to challenge yourself – you can! It is the same road that I travel and the same message that I teach in my coaching. After all, we only have so many heartbeats in our hearts – why not use them to fuel your dreams….


May you live the life that you dream, on earth as it is in heaven…

How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Final Review

February 19, 2011

As the late Michael Jackson said, “This is it”, which was a prophetic statement in many ways! That being said, this is it. This is the review of the goal setting seminar. I hope you enjoyed the content, but  more importantly, I hope you are applying it!

My friend Gene is an expert in his field and currently works as a consultant with Tony Robbins and Chet Holmes. Gene teaches individuals how to use the art of persuasion as a sales tool. What does that mean? Every business deal, including “Job Interviewing” is a sales situation, an opportunity to sale yourself. Many of us don’t like to refer to  ourselves as  sales people, but we are!

If you know anything about children, they are some of the best sales people ever! They are relentless and won’t take no for an answer.

Now – let’s review the top distinctions from the past 6 weeks that Gene gave us:

1. Know what you want – decide where you want to go.

o   95% of Americans don’t have written goals.

o   Without aim we drift

o    Reticular Activation System (RAS), part of brain that help convert images to reality.

2. Make sure you’re why is strong enough!

o   When we ask ourselves the right questions, we come up with the best “Why’s”. Why I should have my dream job. Why I need to find a job that I am passionate about? Why I need t o be fulfilled in my career?

3. Take Action – Action is the key!

o   The law of attraction is an amazing thing – it got a lot of attention in the early 2000’s.

o   The biggest thing many people didn’t do was “TAKE ACTION”. It’s one thing to imagine what you want, however, there are physical laws in our universe that require action.

o   Action equals motion, motion equals results!

4. People are rewarded in public for the things they practice the most in private.

o   The best in the world do the hard things behind the scenes so that when they show up they are on!

o   What are you doing in private for your career or job search?

o   Are you doing the things the unsuccessful people don’t do?

o    Are you doing the necessary work – be on the look out, your success may be wearing overalls!

5. You have to Constantly MEASURE YOUR RESULTS!

o   You must use your Sensory Acuity

o    Step out – Reevaluate your – Make the changes

6. Model the best!

o   Find someone that has achieved the outcome you want to achieve.

o   Buy someone a cup of coffee or lunch and interview them on “How they do what they do”.

o   Successful people apply the right information in the right order.

There you have it! This formula is GUARANTEED to create success if you use it. As Gene said, you MUST put the information to use – you must take ACTION in order for the information to pay dividends.

Here is another amazing testimonial from Michael Jordan:

It’s that simple. Now, I’d like to challenge you to use this information in your life over the next week. Create a plan of action and let me know how you are progressing!

How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Part 6

February 13, 2011

Congratulations, you’re doing it! You’re doing what 95% of American’s don’t do. You’ve taken the time to dream, plan and execute your vision for your life. Now I have to tell you, I’ve always been a dreamer, but when I discovered that dreaming + passion + work = realization of your dreams. It’s that simple, but yet that hard for many.

As I quoted my brother saying, “Success if often times dressed in overalls and looks like work”.

This is the one thing that scares the multitudes away. Somehow, many of us want the easy route to wealth, riches, health and happiness.

Got news for you – there ain’t no sucha thing… As my mom has always said, anything worth having is worth working for. If you get something to easy, you don’t have the same appreciation for it.
So in this pursuit of your dreams, find a way to embrace the challenge, for the reward is even greater than the challenge!

Let’s Review Part 5 – Gene gave us a specific distinction:

• Change your approach!
o Success is the result of good judgment
o Good judgment is the result of experience
o Experience is the result of bad judgment
• Don’t look at the things that didn’t work as a failure – look at them as learning experiences!
• Reframe – Ask yourself, “What is the lesson in this experience that I need to learn”.
o This reframe will change your life my friends!
o Some of the most successful people in the world fail their way to the top!

Ok – it’s now mid February and I’ve had to change my approach on several things so far. I’ve also had to look at goals for the quarter and revise them several times already. Actually, this has allowed me to be more specific in my focus. As long as I accomplish something on the list, I’m moving the ball 10 yards forward. It’s only when I stop and ponder, without motion that I don’t move the ball forward.

Here is one of the greatest examples of someone who has failed their way to the top:

Again, let’s use the KISS technique – Keep It Simple Successfully.

How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Part 5

February 6, 2011

We are in the home stretch of the final inning! Again, 95% of America does not do this exercise each year, which means that we are flying in an airplane with no map…. Would you want to do that in real life? Got news for you – this is real life!

Let’s Review Part 4 – Gene gave us a specific distinction:

• You have to Constantly MEASURE YOUR RESULTS!
• You must use your Sensory Acuity
• Step out – Reevaluate your – Make the changes

Gene suggested that as you take action you have to have check points. You must have a way to measure your results.

In my 3 month plan – I’m off to a fast start, however, as life happens I’ve had to step back and reassess my annual outcome several times to ensure that I’m on track for what I want. I’ve had to review my musts and wants.

Goal setting works if you use it right and are HONEST with YOURSELF. Its not enough to write goals without looking at them and measuring your results.

The easiest way to do this is to have an annual goal that you review at least twice per year. But, a set of smaller goals in your overall plan that you assess monthly. This is why I’ve decided to use the quarterly system for measuring my results – don’t get me wrong, I measure weekly and daily on some of my outcomes, but we must give ourselves a chance to try things before we change them!

Again, let’s use the KISS technique – Keep It Simple Successfully.

How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Part 4

Wow – you are still here, congratulations. You are further than 95% of the population!!! My brother Michael recently said, “Many people will not have success because when success shows up, it’s wearing overalls and looks like work.”

He’s always had great anecdotes. That being said, you are demonstrating your desire and willingness to be successful by your continued action and by virtue of coming back to get more.

Let’s Review Part 3
– Gene gave us a specific distinction:
People are rewarded in public for the things they practice the most in private.
– The best in the world do the hard things behind the scenes so that when they show up they are on!
– What are you doing in private for your career or job search?
– Are you doing the things the unsuccessful people don’t do?
– Are you doing the necessary work – be on the look out, your success may be wearing overalls!

In my personal process I have create some simple goals that I can achieve within the first 3 months.
-I’ve chosen to study more on personal finances – it’s an area that I can use more expertise in.
-I’ve chosen to learn more about human behavior and the brain – it’s a topic that I love!
-I’ve chosen to learn more about how exercise and food affect the body and the brain.

I’m keeping my focus on a few simple things that I can do every day, so that I don’t overwhelm my senses. When we take too much on, we shut ourselves down – like drinking from a fire hydrant. If you set realistic goals, you will achieve your result – they are more manageable.

Thus, let’s use the KISS technique – Keep It Simple Successfully.

How Tony Robbins Sets Goals – Part 3

January 23, 2011

I can tell by the responses that people are following this series, which is AWESOME! The question I have for you is – Are You APPLYING this information?

I’m going to imagine that you are, so let’s get right into it!

Let’s Review Part 2 – Gene gave us 3 specific distinctions:
You decided what you want – You’ve activated the Law of Attraction
o Definition of decision in the Online Dictionary. Latin dēcīsiō, literally: a cutting off. So the literal idea to this is that you DECIDE what you want and cut off any other possibility from deterring you!
Make sure you’re why is strong enough!
o When we ask ourselves the right questions, we come up with the best “Why’s”. Why I should have my dream job. Why I need to find a job that I am passionate about? Why I need t o be fulfilled in my career?
Take Action – Action is the key!
o The law of attraction is an amazing thing – it got a lot of attention in the early 2000’s. The biggest thing many people didn’t do was “TAKE ACTION”. It’s one thing to imagine what you want, however, there are physical laws in our universe that require action.
o Action equals motion, motion equals results!

Again, in my own goal setting for 2011, here’s how I’m using this information:
I’ve decided that I am going to focus on a quarterly action plan – while I have an annual vision, my focus in being broken down into quarters. This helps me to keep from overwhelming myself.
• While I have a very narrow set of business focuses this year, I must ask myself the right questions.
o Why must I do this? Why should I do this, What am I doing this?
Taking Action is the biggest thing that every successful person knows is the building block to every great idea. There in not one great idea in existence today that didn’t have a mass of action behind it. It’s not enough to simply imagine what you want – although that is the first step. However, you MUST take action to set things in motion and the universe will open pathways.

Keep on coming back, there’s a lot more to give!

How Tony Robbins Sets Goal – Part 2

January 17, 2011

Welcome back! I’m certain that you are enjoying and APPLYING this information right away – it’s the best way to achieve results and to get the things you want out of life. Again, if you follow me over the next few weeks I guarantee that you will experience a shift in your job search, career, and your life.

Let’s review Part 1 Gene gave 3 specific distinctions:
Know what you want – decide where you want to go.
o 95% of Americans don’t have written goals.
o Without aim we drift
o Reticular Activation System (RAS), part of brain that help convert images to reality.
Write your ideas down in detail
o Journal Your Ideas – this allows them to become real or to materialize (to become matter)
o Or Video tape or audio record your ideas to record (this is an easier process)
Find Pictures or images to surround yourself with
o Use a vision board (in our Career Mastery Program there is a great Vision Board Process)
o Use electronic vision boarding (Use the internet to grab images for your screen saver on your computer of smart phone)

Here’s how I’m using this part of the goals setting process for 2011:
I started by reviewing my wants – which included a review of what I wanted last year to see if anything transferred over to this year. i.e. health/fitness, relationship, family, business/career, etc. These are continually in my focus so I always bring elements of them forward – but also delete aspects of them based on my progress, growth or change of direction.

I’ve written down in detail what more I’d like to accomplish this year, which leads toward my “Outcome”. Remember, goals are milestones that lead to “Outcomes”. So when goal setting, always start with the question, “What is my outcome” i.e. to have a successful online e-learning university where I can share ideas with people that help them find their dream jobs. One way I keep track of this is by using a white board in my office so that I can interact with ideas on a regular basis. Many people write goals and don’t look at them again – you must be in touch with your ideas – they will serve you. More on this later.

I have a number of images that support my vision. In day 1 of our Career Mastery course, there is a chapter entitled, The Secrete of a Compelling Vision”. A vision is like a final destination, where are you going? What do you need to do to get there? I have a vision board that has been morphing over the past years and have updated mine this year. Also, my desktop computer is where I have a screen saver of my new visions playing. I recently gave an electronic picture frame as a gift to a friend that had images of his dreams on it – I call it an electronic vision board. Another simple thing you can do is surround your home with images, i.e. photos, magazines, art, clippings, etc. with images that support your vision.

Here’s an important thing to know about this part of the process – the brain doesn’t know the difference between a vivid dream and this state we call reality. Thus, as I say in my Leveraging Linkedin course, “If you can say it, and see it, you can do it!”.

Ok – I hope that has given you another layer of clarity as to how you can apply this information to your job/career search , which is your life.
