YOUR OFFICIAL COURSE WORKBOOK


4 Simple Tips To Get The Most Out of This Class:

1. Print this workbook out before starting to listen to the recording so you can write down
your notes as you listen.


2. Review the topic outline so you know what to listen for. Make sure you've set aside
private time for this session (minimum 50 minutes) so you’ll be able to focus and fully
receive the benefits of the session.


3. Write down all the interesting and new ideas and inspirations you get while listening —
that way you won’t lose the information most relevant to you.


4. Think of how you can quickly implement the teachings shared in this session.

Preparation Tips:

• Make sure you are in a quiet place where nothing can distract you, and that you are not
driving a car or any other vehicle. Be in a comfortable position so you can fully take part
in any of the exercises or hypnosis tracks that are part of the class.


• Stretch your muscles before starting the class. Stretching loosens the muscles and
tendons allowing you to sit (or lie) more comfortably. Additionally, stretching starts the
process of “going inward” and brings added focus to the body.


• Take a deep breath. Breathing deeply slows down the heart rate and relaxes the
muscles to help you have a comfortable experience during any guided exercises that will
happen during the class.


We hope you’ll enjoy it!

Module One Exercise

2. This exercise will show you in a way that leaves no doubt that your body does what
you tell it to.

Stand up.

With one arm, pointing your finger out in front of you, begin to move your arm as far
out and behind you as you can.

If it’s your right arm move it out to the right, if it’s your left move it out to the left.

When you have moved your arm as far behind you as you can, look behind you to
notice where it is.

Now, return to the starting position.

Close your eyes for a moment, and just imagine your arm moving 25 percent
further.

Really see this in your mind for a moment see your arm as so flexible like rubber,
and tell your arm that when you repeat the exercise your arm will move 25 percent
further by simply repeating you will move 25% further when I repeat this exercise.

Then open your eyes, repeat the procedure, and notice just how much further your
arm will move.

You are already beginning to see the power of beliefs on the body. As you saw, believed,
and thought about your arm moving further as you told it to move further, it did.

Repeat the exercise with the other arm to prove to yourself how easy it is to influence your
body using your belief system.

Case study

Athletes have been using this technique for years, seeing themselves: lifting a heavier
weight, performing a longer jump, believing they will do it, telling themselves they can do it,
and then doing exactly that.

Many tests have proven that in athletics, the ability to visualise is as important as physical
training. When athletes visualize, they cause all their muscles to perform at a level to meet
the visualization. It is now becoming accepted that athletes who use powers of
visualization, as well as training, will always achieve more.

You can use these techniques just as effectively for success in business and in your
personal life.

Homework

A. We all have things in life that we don’t want to do, whether it’s working out, getting up
early to get a start on the day or doing our taxes well ahead of the deadline.

However, few of us realise that the way we talk about those tasks has a huge effect on our
ability to do them.

If we want to write a book, but associate working on weekends with missing out on social
events—”Ugh, I hate that I have to shut myself away in this room on a sunny Saturday”—
you’ll find that your brain will come up with a million ways to distract you from sitting down
to write.

But if you change the way you talk about that task—”How lucky am I that I have the ideas,
ability and tools to write this book. I love writing it’s so engrossing and rewarding ”—you
will sit down to write without resistance.

For homework, pick a task that you always treat with disdain. Write it down at the top of
the page and make two columns below it. In the left hand column write “nightmare” and in
the right hand column write “challenge.”

In the “nightmare” column, write down the words you usually associate or say when
speaking about this particular task: “the worst,” “this is hell,” “I’d rather do anything but
this,” “How can I get out of this,” “this is so boring, so dull I hate it “ “this is killing me” etc.

In the “challenge” column, think of an alternative set of words that you can use to replace
the first set. These don’t have to be over-the-top and unrealistic—no one is overly-thrilled
at the thought of doing their taxes or 100 push-ups in the gym-—but do remember that
your mind’s job is to move you away from anything you link pain to by increasing your
resistance.

Homework

However when your mind gets it that you want to do a task it increases your desire and
your energy. You always have a choice so choose to get into the excellent habit of making
your words positive so that even if you don’t like a task you can say. “I will feel so
accomplished after doing my taxes,” or “I feel so great when I get up early and finish that
project”.

When you are in the gym keep saying “My body loves this my, body likes this” even if your
mind has other ideas.

Example

Do you go to the supermarket and say “It’s hell in here, this queue is the worst, I hate
grocery shopping, I’d rather be anywhere else.”

The truth is, hell is not in the grocery store. Hell is when you haven’t got enough money to
go to grocery store.

Next time you’re in the queue, remind yourself: You have enough money to buy food, and
you’re buying food for people that you love that love you in return. And nowhere in that
scene will you find hell in fact your idea of hell is someone else’s fantasy dream come true.

You can apply this perspective shift to lots of things in your life, like being in traffic (which
means you’re lucky enough to have a car) and this exercise will help you achieve that.

And remember, initially it’s what you do, and in no time it becomes who you are.

The more you do it, the easier it is. The easier it is, the more you do it. And now, your mind
is wired to move toward success instead of coming up with obstacles and resistance.

B. Once you have this alternative set of words, really challenge yourself to start using them
both out loud in your daily speech and in your internal thoughts.

Here’s an example of how powerful this is. Do this arm test with a friend.

Make a fist and hold your arm out at shoulder height ram-rod straight and resist your
friend while they push down on your arm and test your strength.

Now say some really positive words out loud: “I’m amazing at my job, I’m fantastic at
interviews, I love applying myself and getting lots done.”

Now get your friend to push down again and you’ll see that you stay strong.

Now, say the most negative things you can think of: “I’m hopeless at my job, I’m
worthless, I’m a loser.”

Then, get your friend to push your arm in the same manner and you’ll see that you
become physically weak when you use weakening words.

Alternatively, you become strong when you use strong words.

Now that you have proved to yourself that the words you tell yourself and what you tell
your mind has a very powerful effect on you.

This will remind you to use positive, powerful words for everyday and mundane tasks as
well as for the things you want in life.

It will remind you that your mind does want you tell it to so tell it better things and you will
get much better results.
