Podcast #139 – Personal Development Lessons from Chris

Welcome to Brain Software Podcast, Episode # 139, coming to you from Toronto Canada, with Chris Thompson, and I’m Mike Mandel.  Today Chris shares the lessons he’s learned to have an awesome life, so get ready to make positive changes…

We’re live in the Large Hadron Collider…or at least Dave Ambrose is…

Life lessons abound here, but seriously folks…

What ever actually occurred in our lives to remove that usual feeling of calm and ease we used to experience on a regular basis?

THESE ARE DAYS OF VICTORY!!!

April is going to be stellar for training in Toronto! We have Architecture of Hypnosis (April 20 – 24, 2020) and living legend Bob Burns, is coming from Scotland to teach (April 25-26). Come to Toronto! Check it out here.

Here are the show notes:

  • Mike still thinks it’s not a good idea to put alcoholism at Identity Level
  • If you cannot laugh at serious things, how will you ever laugh at funny things?
  • Mike used to collect laughs, including Uncle Phil’s guinea pig laugh…
  • Check out the laughing game! You have to sound like a mad scientist…

THINK TANK WORDS OF THE DAY:    Premeditation   Past   Resource

  • Personal development lessons from the life of Chris Thompson
  • Chris begins an explication on his entire life which has Ken Sweatman elements to it…
  •  The entrepreneurial path means you decide to work for yourself!
  • The first thing is: Know your personal risk tolerance! (Time, money, relationships, etc.)
  • Cortez burned his ships in the New World so there would be no going back…
  • If you’re interested in doing something else, phase it in slowly. Baby steps will get you there!
  • Be an architect of emotions…Create an emotion and give a suggestion!
  • Chris is in fact, the Warren Buffett of hypnosis…
  • Money is not the answer! There are plenty of rich people who are depressed or generally unhappy…
  • Figure out what you really want. It’s probably not just money!
  • Create fun personal  challenges! Challenges suck if you aren’t interested in the outcome…
  • “If it isn’t easy, it’s just not worth doing!” – Homer Simpson
  • Mike is obsessed with backgammon! But is the consummate generalist…
  • What is the story you tell yourself about you and your life?
  • Tell yourself really compelling stories about yourself and your life, to yourself…
  • No what story you want others to tell themselves about you!
  • Does your behaviour support the story you’re telling yourself?
  • People like you if they feel good about themselves in your presence…
  • Don’t flatter, but sincere compliments are good…
  • Don’t be afraid to accept generosity from others. It makes them value you when you do!
  • Always be learning! You must be your number one project!
  • Your job is not your life! Avoid that mistake…
  • Build a broad based schema and avoid sticking with your field…
  • Take a self-defence course that actually works!
  • Front-end load the difficult stuff! Then what’s left is easy…

Empowering Question: What am I excited about transforming in my life…and I will I implement the necessary changes…today? Which of these points has really spoken to me…and how will I answer what it has said?

Ending: Wise men say “Excuse me…”
