Supporting local Charities that survive on donations not the government

Change in a country begins with one person. Each country reflects the inner peace or turmoil of its mass population, and so as one person changes they affect the rest of the population. One person has the power within them to bring massive change to their country through immense love and peace within themselves. But we cannot bring about peace and well-being to our country unless we have conquered that in our own life. Do you see? You cannot give what you do not have.

Each person’s job is to bring utter harmony into their own life, and then they will become the greatest human gift for their country and the world.  

May the joy be with you,  The Law of Attraction

I put my heart out to those who work for nothing in aid of helping those in need.  One such business I am now hoping to help is one of 43 and they are the MS (multiple sclerosis ) centers of the uk.   I found out about them via a lady who put a message out on what was called  “Street Life” a local community site now called “Next door” from the USA. For advice or contacts from those who join seeking some support or a business one has used and willing to let others know.  I went to support a musical event to help raise money by donations or by offerings, leaving financial support when they pass on to those in need.  This gives one personal fulfilment with a positive attitude for life and helping others less fortunate with the power to change someones life. The contacts, if you feel you can help are:

The majority of good people work for nothing offering support for those in need even some staff are sufferers of MS and are proud to help those worse of.  It is a great place and needs support, I have made contact with those in charge of the the famous “RED NOSE DAY EVENTS”   asking for support of the more local businesses in need of help, as the government do not feel they should  help!  they mainly support those in need over seas.  I admit that is as important but looking  after our own is just as important.  Thank you for reading this message sent form the heart as Gratitude makes a person!  Gray

The Personal Poem

To find what you seek in the road of life, the best proverb of all is that which says: Leave no stone unturned." Edward Bulwer Lytton

The Personal Poem

We all need someone & something, look within yourself are you that person?

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool To weep is to risk appearing sentimental To reach out to another is to risk involvement To expose your feelings is to risk rejection To place your dreams before a crowd is to risk ridicule
To love is to risk not being loved in return To go forward is to face the overwhelming odds is to risk failure
Risks must be taken because the greatest risk of all is to risk nothing The person who risks nothing does nothing has nothing and is nothing He may avoid suffering and Sorrow but he cannot learn and cannot feel, cannot change, cannot grow and cannot laugh Chained by his virtues he is a slave A person who risks is truly FREE

Dreams Do Come True

 

The World Belongs to The Dreamers  Gray

If a dream is not worth waking up tow minutes earlier for then it is probably not hte right dreamHow can you make a big dream come true?  You need to have one secret element, and when you have that secret element, nothing will get in your way. That element is an intense desire! You must desire something with all of your heart to manifest it. Often the difference between those who manifest something and those who do not, is the element of desire. When you have a burning desire for something you ignite a fire within you that attracts with an incredible force. The law of attraction is magnetically drawn to that intense fire element in you, and it responds by gathering all universal forces to make your dream come true.   

Very often we ask for things because we think our life will be better with those things, but inside of us we do not have an immense desire for those things. When you don’t feel that immense desire within you, you are receiving guidance telling you that this is not something you really want. That is why it is so important to get clear on what it is that you really want with all of your heart, because what you really want with all of your heart is the very desire that you can manifest quickly. 

When your heart is on fire with desire you will attract the right things to do, you will find visualizing so easy, and you will find it is effortless to think positive thoughts of your desire. You will attract all the qualities you need, such as strength, courage, belief, persistence, faith, and a powerful will. An intense desire lights up your being, producing a magnetic force that enables the law of attraction to cut through every physical obstacle for you and make your dream come true.   

Go for your dreams! Don’t cheat yourself in your life with petty desires because you don’t think you can live your dream. THE DREAM inside you is the one thing that you have the greatest power to create, because you have an immense desire for it. Find the dream inside you – and make it come true!

The Guiding Light You Didn’t Know You Have

The secret of accomplishment is concentration, or the art of turning all your power upon just one point at a time.

 

Topics: Fulfilment, Harmony, Purpose

Gary_DoyleIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Forty years of pursuing and achieving the American Dream left me feeling unsatisfied, unfulfilled and not at peace with myself. What happened?

Following an extended period of evaluation and self-searching I made a discovery that was so simple and at the same time frightening. Why hadn’t I found the answer earlier? What held me back?

The fact is that our society teaches us that if we just follow the guidelines,we will fulfil ourselves via accomplishments and material rewards. And so we get on the treadmill and stay on the treadmill thinking that if we just clear the next hurdle we will achieve joy and happiness.

What I’ve learned is that it is only when our mind, body, spirit and soul are in alignment can we truly reach satisfaction and fulfilment. We must find our purpose, our meaning and live it if we are to reach the fulfilment that we so desire. That does not mean that the American Dream must be forsaken, it only means that we must be pursuing it in harmony with our purpose.

As I dug deeper to find my own purpose I discovered these truths.

We all have a purpose – one that provides meaning and direction for our lives. We may not have found it yet or we may have found it and suppressed it but we all have one.

It is never too late. No matter your age, no matter your past decisions, if you have only one day left to live, starting the journey will bring peace, satisfaction and fulfilment to your life.

Finding it requires a disciplined and detailed process. It is not something that is found by accident.

Purpose is not a job or a role. It is a guiding light, how you apply it to what you do is up to you.

Staying true to it is even more difficult than finding it. Family, friends and society in general are constantly causing us to question its veracity and its value and your ability to live it. Don’t give in.

Fulfilment and satisfaction come from the journey not the achievement of our purpose. It is from tending to the journey that the fruits of satisfaction and fulfilment are harvested.

Living our life with meaning requires that we must be all in. Our mind, body, spirit and soul must all be committed to our purpose. We must be aligned and balanced in our approach. We cannot get and stay fit if our spirit, soul and mind aren’t aligned towards that end. We cannot discover our purpose unless our mind, body, spirit and soul are committed to the task.

Purpose lies within and we must find it and the power that comes with it or be forever controlled by what lies without.

The time to begin is now. We need not wait for a life-changing event to prompt action. Start from that feeling inside that says, “Is this all there is”? Do it now and live a life of harmony and peace.

“There is a magnificent life that is waiting for you to wake up and remember who you are and why you are here.”– Rev. Cynthia James

Natural Selling Lesson five The Power of Listening

"My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company."  Jane Austen

“The Power of Listening is available to us all, only those who listen will gain great benefits in life, love personal & financial wealth . The decision is yours”   Gray Lawrence

The Power of Listening

Listening – The Most Important Skill You Can Learn

Principle 3. Listening to What is Being Meant, Not Just What is Being Said.

Ask yourself. Do you really listen to people? Do you really listen to and actually attempt to understand what they are saying and meaning without letting your own interpretations get in the way?

This is how most people listen. 45% of the time is spent doing what?

Working out what they’re going to say next!

Another 45% of the time is spent waiting for a gap in the conversation so that they can say it!!! Leaving only 10% of the time for actual listening!

So are we listening when we spend only 10 % of the time doing it?  No we’re not!

So what percentage of time must we listen?  100%!

To actually listen to, hear and understand what another person is saying, we must spend 100% of the time listening.

Now, you might ask, how do you listen 100% of the time without thinking?

Well, here are a few clues.

The Power of Your mind Head with detailsFirst, you can think 10 times faster than most people can talk.

If you know how the features of your solutions solve problems, you’ll hear what specific features are relevant and how to talk about them later as specific advantages and benefits.

It takes the guessing out of what to present and how to present it.

Imagine having all your features in lots of automatic drawers in your mind… just like your CD drawer in your computer… and having the correct ones automatically pop out based on what you hear a person wants.

Secondly, you don’t have to think about what you’re going to ask next, because;

1. You will know what questions to ask and when to ask them by learning from a powerful framework that is available to you in the Natural Selling Approach

2. What you’re going to ask is also found in the answers you get to your previous questions! It’s all there! It’s just that you have to listen to the answers to get the information

3. Stop re-interpreting what people say to you based on your own biases or life’s experiences, or your own judgments, prejudices and thoughts! All this does is get in your way of understanding. People don’t think what you think they think!

You’re thinking that they do can get in your way!

For example, have you ever had someone respond to a remark you made and it was totally out of context with what you meant, and you wondered where he or she was coming from? Well, it’s likely that the other person was interpreting what they thought you were talking about. Do you do the same thing to others?

If you don’t listen and are impatiently waiting to say what you want to say you’ll miss vital clues to help your potential partner or customer come to a logical conclusion to change.

Result? You’ll miss the mark and will meet resistance most of the time!

"Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again."  Og Mandino

Let’s look at this more closely. What do you normally listen for when people reply to your questions? Do you listen to what you want to hear with the intent to reply based on what you want to say? Or do you listen with the intent to understand where the other person is coming from and reply to them based on their own deep inner truth?

People Have Two Truths

For example, if you ask a person whether they like their job, or whether they like the skin care products they are presently taking, would you hope they would say no? In the Natural Selling Approach, it doesn’t matter what they answer, because people carry "Two truths". The Natural Selling Approach allows people to reveal both sides of their truths, and reveal which is the stronger.

The power of your positive action is a force greater than you can fathomHere is an illustration. If you ask someone if they like where they live they could reply Yes or No. If they said, "Yes", and you asked later, "If you could live anywhere else, where would that be?" and they gave another location, you will have discovered there is another truth to explore. One of those two "Truths" will ultimately reveal itself as stronger than the other.

If they replied "No" to the first question and were subsequently asked the same question about living somewhere else, again the real truth gets revealed.

Listening is such a powerful skill. If you learn how to listen to people you’ll find that they will immediately be attracted to you and most will want to listen to you. A large part of my book is spent demonstrating how you can do this.

You may find it useful to take a short test of your listening skills that I have devised. Click below. You might be surprised at the results!

Now you’ve covered some of the basics behind the importance of listening, let’s turn your attention to what you’re listening for. We’ll recap the

Principle:

Listening to What is Being Meant, not Just What is Being Said.

The two key words here are, said and meant.

Said is the logical or factual side of the problem solving equation. It comprises about 10% of the problem. Meant is the personal, feelings or subjective side… and it comprises the other 90%.

In The Natural Selling Approach what is important is to focus more on what is being meant. Why? Well, do people make changes based mostly on logic or feelings? Feelings! So that is the level you have most of your dialogues.

To illustrate this, think of someone saying they don’t have enough money.

Is that a fact or a feeling? It’s a fact! They might say it with feeling, but it’s still a fact.

So if you were to ask someone, "What one thing would make a difference in your life?", which is a logical question, and they said, "More money", which is a logical answer… and you then responded with your solution by saying, "I can show you how to do that"… you would be talking at a logical and factual level. And what response do you think you would get from most people?

Negative or positive? Mostly they will reject your idea.

The reason is that talking logically with people won’t help you very much to help them because you’re only addressing 10% of their problem if they have one!

If you want to be of help, find out what is underneath this problem called "lack of money". In other words, find out what is causing it, what it means to them personally and how they feel about it. Find out the meaning of what they say, not just what they are saying. You will find their answers are totally unique to them, and if you respond to their uniqueness as opposed to coming out with a canned presentation or script, you will automatically attract them to you.

"Facts belong to the world. Feelings belong to the individual".

If you ask without manipulation, most people will tell you.

It’s also where the relationship and the sale is. To be more precise, it’s where both of you can discover if there is a need and the depth of desire to do something about it.

So understanding how to listen and what to listen for and how to respond is vital in the Natural Selling Approach.

And when you understand what someone wants and why they want it…. you will be able to customize your solution and present it in such a precise way that it will mean something to the other person based on how they see things. Why will you be able to do this? Because they will have told you everything you need to know to make your winning presentation.

What are todays thoughts? think about what has been covered today before the next lesson.

Feeding Back What You Think You Heard!

Exercises:

Continue yesterdays exercise. Each time you have a conversation with someone today, turn it into a Dialogue. Focus simply on LISTENING to them!

As far as possible, don’t say anything yourself except to ask questions and keep the Dialogue moving along.

When in Dialogue, observe yourself and be aware of how often you have the urge to interrupt or finish the other person’s sentences for them! Ask yourself whether you’re really serving yourself (or the other person) by doing this!

Your success is your decision: these lessons are a guide, the rest is up to you….

 

If you can’t manage your own mental attitude, what makes you think you can manage others?

Why is it that often those who believe they would be the best managers of others – if they were only given the opportunity – haven’t learned to manage themselves properly? Before you can ever have any hope of managing others effectively, you must first learn to set an example for others to follow. It is simply impossible for you to inspire others to high levels of achievement if you cannot inspire yourself to do the same. Don’t make the mistake that many others make by saying, “When they make me a manager, I’ll show them I can manage.” The first move is yours. You must first prove yourself worthy.    Napoleon Hill
