NLP – Creating Irresistible Influence With NLP

Creating-Influence-with-NLPCreating Irresistible Influences with NLP, by Charles Faulkner is a 6 CD audio set that aims to teach people all about how to manage people in a way that others feel good about.

The premise of this series is really an old adage.  When you give people what they want, they will give you what they want. This seems like common sense when you’ve lived life long enough to figure this out.

But many people resist this idea, feel that it’s their way or no way, or simply don’t know how to be a powerbroker in order to give people what they want in the first place.

Creating Irresistible Influences with NLP, by Charles Faulkner takes care of that. In this dynamic series, the listener will learn some very key aspects, such as:

The difference between manipulating someone, and influencing them:  When people think that if they can control people and their outcomes by giving them what they want, their first thought might be that this is a manipulative practice.

Charles Faulkner challenges this notion.  He challenges the listener to consider the idea that there is a difference between influencing others, and in manipulating others.

The truth is that the person, and the energy of those two concepts are different.  As such, when you influence others, you leave them feeling empowered and good.  Manipulating others makes them feel victimized and bad. Charles Faulkner in Creating Irresistible Influence wants you to become an influencer.

The five levels of the pyramid of influence:  The series Creating Irresistible Influences teaches the listener exactly what this means, and how they can go about using the five levels of the pyramid of influence to their advantage.

Personal Development – Start Right now or miss out on key Life Choices!

Personal Development-EdAndriessen.comBy: Derek

Personal development is the pursuit of learning, developing, honing and mastering the skills that help you become the best that you can, with all that you have. It is the reaching for, and realizing of your full potential as a human being.

You want to live a full, productive life, but sometimes, you just don’t know where to begin. There is so much information ‘out there’ that it can be overwhelming and hard to choose what is right for you.

Depending on your concerns what seems to work for one person, may not necessarily work for you.  There are so many different ideas, strategies, advice and techniques that it’s hard to chose the right one.

One thing, however, is certain. If you want to achieve anything in your life and realize your full potential, you must have some practical and positive skills – life skills.

In order to excel at work, in a sport or in your relationships, you must acquire and master certain skills. Living your life fully, productively and with enjoyment is no different.

Crucially possessing life skills enables you to deal with the life’s inevitable challenges and adversities more effectively.  It reduces your chances of procrastinating, finding yourself getting frustrated and stressed, engaging in addictive behaviors, and experiencing overall despair and hopelessness. When you have the proper tools and actions at your disposal, you have more control over your life and time making you happier and more confident.

Taking the first steps

Your first step is establishing a firm foundation. That foundation must be “you”. You need to know who you are, what you want, and what you are capable of. You must then determine which values, goals and principles you will establish to guide your actions.

Public Speaking – Do You Have a Clearly Defined Subject?

This may sound like an elementary question, but you would be surprised how many speakers try to prepare a talk before clearly defining their subject.Often, a presenter can give you a general idea of their topic, but not a specific one; it is this absence of a clearly defined subject that is the root cause of many subsequent problems.

Here are just two.

First, a fuzzy subject makes doing research difficult and, therefore, much more time consuming.

Second, it creates confusion when you are trying to determine the goal of your presentation.

Developing a clearly defined subject is so important that Chapter 3 is devoted entirely to this topic. For now, suffice it to say that the sooner you know the subject of your talk, the better.

Once you decide on a subject, make sure you can say it in simple terms. Speakers should be able to articulate clearly the reason for their talk in just a few words. Below are some pithy titles that leave little need for explanation. They pack a punch and make the subject matter clear to the casual observer:
