END YOUR EVENT WITH A BANG

October 23rd, 2017 by

End your event with a bang and it could make a positive difference in your bottom line! If you’re getting ready to attend a company event, you might be prepared for good food, team building activities, and presentations. However, getting a special closing speaker can really put the icing on the cake at an event that was meant to be memorable. A charismatic speech provides laughs, motivation, and a sense that a company cares about its employees. Whether it’s a conference or a holiday party, the benefits of a professional closing keynote speaker on attitude are almost infinite.

END YOUR EVENT WITH A BANG MEANS BETTER MORALE, MORE MONEY

Often an elephant in the room, morale is hard to talk about. But if you notice that the people in the office seem stressed or tired, it might be time for a pep talk. An attitude expert won’t have a bunch of mindless platitudes to share; he has cultivated a rich career and was in the same position as many people in your company at one point. He can share what kept him going and how a change in his state of mind boosted his performance. The bottom line is that providing people with tips on how to change their behavior for the better can increase the bottom line for your company.

MORNING BIRDS GET THE WORM

What do you do when you wake up in the morning? Do you rush to finish your morning routine or do you take a few moments to collect your thoughts before heading out? Believe it or not, it’s those few meditative moments that can change your world. No matter how busy your schedule, or what type of job you have, everyone should be taking the time to wonder “How can I be my best version of myself today?” A closing keynote speaker on attitude can share the stream of thoughts that run through his head and discuss how he transforms them into positive actions.

LEAVE COMPLAINTS AT THE DOOR

Voicing your concerns over a workload, or how someone got an unfair promotion, doesn’t help anyone. In fact, it subjects your coworkers to a toxic state of mind that might rub off on customers. The solution is simple: don’t. When you simply do the work that’s required, to the best of your ability, your performance will go up by a few notches.

A closing keynote speaker on attitude is the perfect addition to delicious food or exciting games. You and your coworkers can learn a lot about how to improve themselves and encourage their team while having a great time. Visit boazpower.com for more information.

DISCOVER HOW TO SABOTAGE-PROOF YOUR FUTURE!

October 23rd, 2017 by

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future and you’ll suddenly notice that things will improve. As a result, you’ll get a raise, get a promotion, or get more recognition. Most people, with their negative attitude or bad decisions, actually sabotage their future. Thus, they wonder why things don’t work out for them. They may feel that the universe has it out for them and they never get any breaks. They may feel that they never have good luck.

In reality, for most people, none of those things really affect their future. It is usually a few simple things that high achievers realize are roadblocks that must be avoided.

If you want to advance your career, get a raise, obtain an advanced degree, or whatever, here are some steps to take in order to make sure that you do not sabotage your future.

1. DISCOVER HOW TO SABOTAGE-PROOF YOUR FUTURE BY CHANGING YOUR BELIEFS

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future by being aware that you’re just 6 inches away from greater success – the distance between your ears. As a result, the beliefs that you have, whether good or bad, dictate your actions. Most people have been programmed from their past to think in certain ways that don’t help them. Thus, if your parents struggled with money, you may have a scarcity mentality. If people in your past had negative attitudes, chances are that you have that belief in your attitude.

There’s a computer term that explains how the brain works. It’s called GIGO – garbage in, garbage out. Thus, if we program our minds with a scarcity mentality, then we’ll get actions that come from a point of scarcity. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between something real and something imagined. Thus, whatever we’re thinking, good or bad, is taken by our minds as being real and then we act accordingly.

We’re all talking to ourselves at the rate of 1,500 words per minute. Most of those words, by nature, are negative. As a result, negative thoughts can lead to fear, apprehension, and insecurity. These attributes can sabotage a future. Thus, we have to take specific steps to overcome the negative inputs of our past and change our thoughts to a prosperity mentality. There is no law that says we can’t do that.

Use Positive Affirmations

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future begins with positive affirmations – directions for the mind. Thus, if you need to improve your beliefs, the following affirmations will help:

Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I spend time with positive, supportive people, am constantly learning and improving my personal development, staying out of debt, and saving money. Opportunities come to me from all directions. I am very creative, a great leader, and I solve problems. I am prosperous and I am a Champion!

State these affirmations, or supportive beliefs, the first thing every morning and the last thing every night, without analysis, and watch what happens in the next 90 days. We’re programming your mind for prosperity and expecting good things to happen.

2. BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ARE AROUND

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future means being careful with the people around us. It is said that we are the total sum of the five people we spend the most time with through the years. Thus, identify those five people and take inventory. Are these people successful? Do they live healthy lives? Do these people have happy, loving families? Are they prosperous and ambitious, responsible with money and supportive of your goals? Everyone in our lives is a member of one of two unions – either the building crew or the wrecking crew!

Take a mental inventory of those people’s lives. If you cannot answer “Yes” to the above questions, then spending time with these people is probably sabotaging your life. Whatever we focus on expands. If these people tend to have a negative attitude, you will expand that into your life. When they operate from a position of lack or fear, you will also expand that in your life. If they live paycheck to paycheck, spend money recklessly, and don’t have much in savings, those things will affect your life. May I suggest you stop listening to people who don’t have any money!

If too much of this sounds familiar, maybe it’s time to fire some of your friends. Seek out people who are more successful than you and ask them for advice. People are honored when we ask them for advice. Invite such people to lunch and look for a way to be of service to them. Dale Carnegie, in the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, said that people are as interested in us as we are in them. Show a lot of interest in people who are successful, get a prosperity attitude, and they will show interest in you. Look for ways to spend more time with people like that.

3. CONTINUE YOUR EDUCATION

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future has a lot to do with continuous education. Most people stop their education when they graduate from college or a trade school. They figure that they’ve obtained their basic education and now it’s time to go to work. That line of thinking has sabotage written all over it. That’s when our real education should begin! High achievers are constantly learning and they’re always looking for ways to improve their people skills.

Research has shown that the most successful people aren’t the ones who know the most about their chosen profession. It isn’t the technical skills that result in people being happier and more successful. The reality is that the people who make the most money, and are the most successful, are the ones who are continuously learning and have developed their people skills way above average.

Reading, the right books, over and over, is a very productive way to continue our education. I have found that it’s much more productive to read one or two books, over and over, rather than a lot of books, one time only. I recommend two foundational books that have helped more people become successful than most any other books. They are How to Win Friends and Influence People and Think and Grow Rich.

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future.Read those two books at least three times over the next year or two and see what happens. Underline parts that seem important to you. Make them your success textbooks.

I would also recommend “The Dale Carnegie Course”. I took the course many years ago and found that it is an exceptional combination of human relations training as well as cultivating confidence while speaking in front of people. If you have an employee with great potential, and you feel that more confidence would help that person, send them to the course and watch what happens!

4. MANAGE YOUR MONEY PRODUCTIVELY

How to sabotage-proof your future.Discover how to sabotage-proof your future has much to do with how you manage money. Just as there are no courses in ordinary schooling on how to get along with people, there are also very few courses in how to manage money. Whether we feel comfortable or not with money has much to do with our confidence and our success. Thus, mishandling our money is a sure-fire way to sabotage our future.

If you were raised in a household where money was in short supply, you might have grown up thinking that you don’t deserve to have a lot of it. As a result, if your parents were always in debt, that tendency may have followed you into adulthood.

As adults, it’s not how much money we make. It’s how we manage it. If we don’t manage money well at the beginning of our career, when money may not be plentiful, we will never manage money when our income grows in the future. It’s a fact that when most people get raises, their expenditures go up.

Live a Little Below Your Means!

Discover how to sabotage-proof your future by realizing that most people live above their means and are usually a few weeks away from financial disaster. Successful people live a little below their means. Thus, they save a set percentage of their income every month. They pay in cash wherever possible and, if they want to buy something special, they often save for it rather than charging it. Realizing that credit card money is not really theirs, they use credit cards very sparingly and never carry balances from one month to another.

How to sabotage-proof your future.If you’re in debt at the moment, make it an important goal to stop charging, pay off those debts, and save money. Having money in the bank, and no debts, gives us confidence and will bring more opportunities our way. Also, carry a 100 dollar bill! That will make you feel prosperous. Have it where you can see it regularly in your wallet or purse. Also, put some 20 dollar bills around the house. Cash is real to our minds. Checks and credit cards are like playing Monopoly. Whatever we focus on expands. Thus, we want cash all around you!

Let take the word “sabotage” out of your future by paying attention to the 4 points above. Take action on these ideas and see what happens in the next few years. You’ll be getting rid of the roadblocks along the highway of life and allow very good things to happen down the road.

A PROSPERITY DAILY AFFIRMATION

“Everything I touch prospers and succeeds. I spend time with positive, supportive people, am constantly learning and improving my personal development, staying out of debt, and saving money. Opportunities come to me from all directions. I am very creative, a great leader, and I solve problems. I am prosperous and I am a Champion!”

POSITIVE MOMENTS CAN BE BENEFICIAL!

September 17th, 2017 by

Positive moments can be beneficial when we focus on them instead of what’s not currently working. What we focus on expands! Thus, we have to be careful what we think about. It’s easy to focus on the negatives and most people do. Champion focus on positive moments!

MY NORTHWESTERN EXPERIENCE

When I spoke in Chicago, I went by Northwestern University in Evanston. That visit was a case of nostalgia. I spent my 1965 summer, between my junior and senior years in high school, at the National High School Speech Institute at the university. The picture above of Northwestern is from questbridge.org.

That was an amazing summer as I worked in the radio and television studios of the university and got to know high school students from all over the country who were part of the program. Keeping in mind that positive moments can be beneficial, those were positive moments.

THE BASEBALL T-SHIRT IN ISRAEL

Something else that I remember with great fondness is what my uncle in New York sent my brother and me in 1956 when we lived in Israel. That was just before my family immigrated to the United States and my uncle sent us a couple of yellow T-shirts.

That’s me in the picture, after we arrived in America, when I was 9, along with my mother, in February of 1957.

I was wearing the T-shirt, which was from the old New York Giants baseball team. You’ll notice the old-fashioned phone, when it was wired into the wall.

 

POSITIVE MOMENTS CAN BE BENEFICIAL IN OUR MEMORY!

We all get depressed from time to time and I certainly do. Perhaps, at those moments, we should think back to simpler times that meant a lot to us, were positive experiences, and made us feel good.

That summer at Northwestern was very special. The feeling of wearing the T-shirt from America to school was very special. Those were positive times that I need to treasure in my memory bank and bring to mind when I feel down.

MAKING A LIST OF 10 MOMENTS

What if we made a list of 10 moments from our past that made us feel special and that we cherish? And, when we feel depressed, what if we took out that list and brought those moments from the past to the forefront?

Positive moments can be beneficial. Thinking about them could change our momentum and, for a moment, put the past ahead of us.

A NOSTALGIA DAILY AFFIRMATION

“I’m making a list of positive moments from my past and think about those to help me move ahead.”

POSITIVE THINKING BEGINS IN THE MIND!

September 5th, 2017 by

Positive thinking really works. It is important in determining the success of our future. That future begins every morning when we wake up. At that moment, we subconsciously make a decision as to whether we’ll have a positive or a negative attitude that day.

WE HAVE TO BE ON GUARD!

It’s harder to have a positive attitude. Because, in order to get that, we have to consciously guard what enters our minds. However, positive thinking really works and can improve our lives dramatically.

As I recently flew into Boston, for a speaking engagement, I noticed a fort in the harbor. As I later found out, this is Fort Independence. The fort’s picture above, from the web site theworldgeography.com, is of the oldest continuously fortified site of English origin in the United States. According to Wikipedia, “The first primitive fortification, called “The Castle”, was placed on the site in 1634.”

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS CAN BE DESTRUCTIVE!

Just as Fort Independence provided harbor defenses for Boston, we each need to defend our minds against negative thoughts. Negative thoughts can be destructive! Hence, it takes a real effort to focus on positive thoughts. That process begins by being careful with what we think and with whom we spend time.

Thus, the people around us are part of either The Building Crew or The Wrecking Crew. Spending more time with the first group and, as much as possible, staying away from the second, is really important.

In addition, it is said that we are the total sum of the five people we spend the most amount of time with on a regular basis. Thus, if those people are not at the level of success you desire, or on their way, then think twice about their impact on your life.

When it comes to positive thinking, the affirmation below may help to defend your mind against negative thoughts.

POSITIVE THINKING REALLY WORKS DAILY AFFIRMATION

“I guard my mind against negative thoughts, focus on the positives, and make good things happen.”
