Five new ways to think about money that will shift your money mindset forever.
A powerful, mind-expanding talk about five helpful and new ways to view money, to help you realize your money potential.
In the blockbuster movie (and book) IT, by Stephen King the shape-shifting monster usually wins by changing itself into the children’s worst fears by reading their minds. But in the end that is how they win too.
They lock IT inside a specific form that is to their advantage with the power of their belief. Then exploit the limitations of that form, because the monster became bound by the physics of that form when they started seeing IT in a certain way.
The way we think about money is very much the same, although it is not a monster.
But we’ve been taught that it looks a certain way, it acts a certain way and it is a certain thing.
And in that form, we often come up against very real limitations on how we think about it, how we approach it and how we have to act to try to win the battle we’re engaged in.
In this talk I discuss five new ways to look at money, to shape-shift its form in our mind so that we can engage it differently and with more power and success.
Because just like in IT, the rules of the game, and our attitude and the blocks we have around it are bound by the form we assign to it in our mind.
Happiness Now. The Art of the Richly Textured Moment
An interactive, fun and practical talk about everyday mindfulness and what really makes us happy.
The stories of our lives are unfolding, one breath, one moment at a time. In every moment we have a choice.
We can hastily dance over the surface of it, with our focus scattered and our mind distracted. Or we can immerse ourselves into the rich textures of dimension and connection the moment offers. We can fully experience it with all of our senses, letting it become expansive and in a sense, timeless…
This is a profound space where the power of Now meets the essence of happiness and fulfilment. A space where you can take a breath and meet up with the beauty and grace of everything and everyone around you.
In this clear space creativity and inspiration can find you. By resting here often you allow everything you desire in life and in business to catch up to you. No chasing required.
Embrace your Authenticity: being a platypus in a world full of ducks
An inspiring and humorous talk about what makes us unique and why our weirdness is an asset in business and in life.
The duckbilled platypus is one of the weirdest animals in the world. When it was first discovered, some academics actually thought that it was a hoax.
This animal has a bill like a duck, a tail like a beaver and it lays eggs. And then it suckles its young.
Except it has no nipples, the milk simply oozes from its skin.
Oh, and they are venomous too. The snake-like venom can kill a dog and will certainly ruin a human’s day.
The sheer awesomeness of this animal, for me, lies in its uncompromising uniqueness. It totally and utterly refuses to get into any of the boxes we’ve created to sort our animals and do things the normal, expected way.
But what if we let the duckbilled platypus, the animal that refuses to be put into any box and just goes its own way, be our guide…
We live in a world full of same-looking same-quacking ducks or ducks secretly trying to be “swans”, the Hollywood celebrity version of a duck. In this world, the platypus is awesome and unique and confounding and surprising and totally unforgettable.
A lot of what is wrong with the world today is that a lot of people who aren’t ducks are disguising themselves as ducks to fit in. Worst, then they beat themselves up for not reaching that epitome of celebrity duckhood: swanhood.
The most valuable currency in the world today is authenticity.
I believe that the number one driver of entrepreneurial success is the connection that is possible with your clients when you allow yourself the space to come from a place of soul-deep integrity. When you are speaking and marketing and living your unique truth and allowing the real you to shine through.
If you can embrace this simple truth, there is no stopping you.
