Title: Tj Sundown Carrying On and On
Post by: Tj on August 16, 2003, 12:53:54 PM
Hi TUTS,

Be Your Best You, Create Your Best Life

As a Coach I'm always wanting to help as many people as possible, but I find I just can't help everyone I come accross because there are so many people out there and so little time to share. For instance: I'd love to help my nephew who is soon to be leaving school to go out in the big wide world. I'd love to help Jock produce a Goal Map and plan and take the proactive action needed to buy his touring 'converted ambulance' van. I'd love to help Klaus with his heavy workload at home, work and play. I'd love to help Mrs F, as she is the only person on the forum to ask me about doing some Life Coaching with her. I'd love to help Markus to be more often be the great fun person he was when I met him in the 12 Bar Club. I'd love to help C5 to believe that the 80's Demo's are just as good as Channel 5. 8O  :lol: You get the picture.

Well I've just finished reading the best book I have ever read. It's also, the closest thing I have read to the Seven Steps To Self-fulfillment that I coach people through at work. This is because I went on Goal Mapping training course with the authors a few years back and I have incorporated many of their teachings into my sessions.

It's called Life Mapping by Brian and Sangeeta Mayne. Brian calls himself a teller of old truths and he developed both Life and Goal Mapping, his partner Sangeeta is an experienced Life Coach.

Essentally the book is about this:

"Be your BEST you and you will naturally create your best life."

"Think your very best thoughts and you will trigger your best feelings which will influence your best actions and effectively create your best results."

The book helps you to find out what people think are the very best things about you. It helps you to capture the essence of the very best you in a Life Map that buries in your sub-concious and helps guide you through life.

To give you an idea of what I am talking about I'll share the words of my Life Map with you (no sniggering at the back!)

This is what I want to be:

LIFE PURPOSE: I Live In The Moment and Radiate Positivity.

MENTAL: I am the Lion and the Lamb.*

EMOTIONAL: I am Passion and Compassion.

PHYSICAL: I'm Alive with Energy and Enthusiasm.

MATERIAL: I am Rich in Happiness and Contentment.

SOCIAL: I Share my Gifts and Coach People to Transcend.

SPIRITUAL: I Believe in me and have Peace and Strength within me.

*Come on TUTS you knew I would get a TV Smith link in there somewhere :wink:
The Lion is the strong traits of Courage, Determination and Confidence.
The Lamb is the meek traits of Calmness and Patience.
According to TV The Lion and the Lamb is about getting the best out of life by being both strong and meek, at the right moments.

Mrs F and Fleag, as you have been so generous to me I have ordered you a copy so that you can go through Life Coaching without out having to look at this Northern Git! :wink: I know that you won't accept any cash off me and a book is a very special gift. :D

Many thanks for listening TUTS :D I'm honestly and sincerely just trying to help. I'd also like to apologise in advance if I have switched anyone off or in anyway annoyed anyone.

Okay Uli fire away :wink:

How very spooky you should write the above post,  I have just had the most surreal fortnight and came to the decision that you reap what you sow  :D

I applied for a job that I had very little relevant experience for but really liked the sound off, I filled in the application form, thinking I have nothing to lose  and thought no more about it expecting to be rejected at stage one.  I have just been sent an appointment for an assessment test I probably won't get the job but I am well chuffed to have been considered  8)

Fleagle and I have just had an offer accepted on a house and I jokingly told our frienda it would now be stripping and painting parties, I was really shocked when everyone said they would love to help  8O  8)

The book sounds like the icing on the cake  :D

Mrs F


The first secret of believe is to believe you can.  :D

By saying "I probably won't get the job" you are programming your brain to believe you won't get the job and this will have a negative impact on your performance and behaviour.

So go out there and believe Mrs F, you will be amased at what will happen when you are positive and you believe in yourself. :D

I'll send your icing on the cake as soon as I get hold of another copy :D

Btw, it is a pure coincidence I read this post, as I currently have had not so mucht time to spend in the Internet as I used to have, so most of the time I only read the posts I think are the most interesting and leave other ones out (though I might miss some things)...
Have a lot of work to do (but I have no problem with this, I like to do it, it just leads to having less spare time) and two relatives are in hospital, so I have to do visits etc.

I never ever doubted your intentions in helping people :!:  :)

it made me aware (again) of the fact that when i was younger, i thought that i can do anything, that there's a big wide world out there and i can achieve whatever i want to! these were the days when i was told that there's no big wide world out there and that i should stick to reality and that following my dreams won't get me nowhere! ('go to university, get a job, earn as much money as possible, buy a house, have children, live the life we expect you to live')
and then i turned to punk, luckily came across tv and you - well what should i say, my childhood-belief didn't return but during reading tj's entry I came to the conclusion that not all the people out there are sooo bad - and that gives me some hope (http://www.kurts-smilies.de/up.gif)

Hmm tricky one Mrs F  :wink:

I've always wondered what it would be like to live near a good pub :D Mind you looking down at my recently returned beer belly I think I might well self explode if I had good beer on tap just round the corner. You should see me sneaking off into the garage for a drink, at all hours of the day, when I take home a small 'barrell' of one of Eastwood & Sanders Fine Ales. :roll:

Let's go for Uli's positive approach.

At the moment you are on a quest to find the best you, capture the essence of the best you and with a 'little' hard work, become the best you. So the positive is that you won't have to worry about how happy Fleagle is because he will be in the pub being the best him and as happy as a pig in shite. :lol:

There sorted :wink:

However, I do agree that it can be good for your health if the pub is a bit further away, so you have to do a little walk to get there...  :)

Post by: Tj on September 13, 2003, 10:59:24 PM
Today I read a lovely little kids book called Sam The Magic Genie 8O It's okay TUTS it's the kids version of Life Mapping.

Move over Harry Potter.

It centre's around several key lessons of life about self believe, thinking you can (not you can't), the importance of liking and loving yourself, thinking about what you want not what you fear, choosing happiness and positivity over sadness and negativity.

It had me close to tears of happiness at the end.  :cry: :D

Title: Becoming The Best You And Choosing Happiness

I might find the real me by christmas if I'm lucky and get enough time to read 'The Book'

Mrs F


I keep think about this comment Mrs F.

I've also realised that the reason I was so happy at Derby is partly because of the Life Mapping seminar with Brian Mayne, earlier that day.

I'm now coaching people to find the real them by using Life Map's. The first coachee to achieve this was on Friday afternoon it took two hours 30 minutes. I know people often say they are too busy to read etc but I can assure you that this persons current problems are worse than any I have seen in a film never mind heard of in real life and he still manged it withing two and a half hours. It's obviously not resolved his problems but it will enable him to react to them in a different way.

If time is an issue for anyone than the greatest gift I can give anyone is to advice them to read with an open mind and a willing heart;  Sam The Magic Genie.  There is so much in their to enable someone to choose happiness. I am extremly serious about this.

The book takes little over an hour to read, as the title suggests it's light and fun to read, but the messages are so powerfull. I bought it for my Nephew, read it last week-end in one sitting, bought a copy for my wife and read again straight through this morning. I then made a page and a half of notes on the key points to study and live.

You can purchase thee book from Brian and Sangeeta Mayne at enquiries@liftinternational.com

Trust me. I am your friend. :wink:  :D

It was just right for the mood I've been in lately, I can see it being a usefull little book.  When you are feeling a bit pissed off you could have a read and it would perk you up  8)

 8O Wow! Now I am impressed.

It's travelling around the women in my Comapany liek a runaway train (most of the men are too full of macho bullshit to read it :roll: )

I've now coached 7 people through completing Life Maps. It is going wonderfull. It is so incredibly uplifting. :D

Yesterday in a full coaching cycle review meeting, one of my coachees line mangers described the coachees improvement as remarkable. He said he had totally transformed, as if someone had spread magic dust on him...

Oops :oops: This should be in this section. :roll: Sorry Uli. :D

This is for Alan, Mrs F and Jock's Carol and anyone interested in improving their lives. This book sums up most of the things I have learnt over the last couple of years:

Personal Coaching For Results by Lou Tice (ISBN 0-7852-6945-2)

It's amazing how little we know about the way our mind works. If you really want lasting success and happiness then many of the secrets to finding this are in this book.

You should see what has happened to some of the people I have coached through this. For instance career wise, one is through to the second round of interviews for a job one step away from he 5 year goal. This is within 8 months and when she gets it it will be her third promotion into a new job with the same time period. Before that she was on a slow train to no-where. Another has gone from a head in turmoil to calm and content.

Come on TUTS trust me I'm a Doctor

All going to plan at the moment, down there this weekend to look at financial side tho won't be too much of a problem, still going to be nursing just part-time(oh how I've longed to hear those words!  :twisted: ) My brother's coming in with me so it gives us both time to escape as well, a bit of a neccesity in the place, the locals are mainly old friends and the present landlord is an old mate, but they can be a bit of a handful, did a test run earlier this year for a weekend and loved it!  :D

Accomodation? For friends no problem at all!   :wink:  

Sounds like everything is panning out well for everyone (though I haven't read all the posts so don't quote me on that one!), good to hear you're enjoying your job, tis about time for all of us methinks  :twisted:

Beer Festival? Now if that was an enormous selection of the West Country's finest farmyard cider's then would be onto a winner there! Will make sure there's a fair few decent ales around on the night.  :D

My wife and I are both out of work as off last Friday night, so I wouldn't quite say things are going great in 2004 (same for Alan)...

...But boy what a (first) leaving do I had. A night in Eastwood & Sanders brewey tap with about 60 friends. Had my first three beers in 45 minutes so I had to slow down a little.

Finished off the night with a Chinease meal and a blast on the karoke :oops: Okay I admit it I was a little tipsy. :D

Well I've also had my share of shit in this life, and out of a million and one positive things I've learned, here's a few:

Never blame yourself or anyone else, or circumstances, for who you are or where you are.

Accept what happens without trying to analyse it too much.

Step back when you're in a mess and try to see the bigger picture (always so easy to do for other people!)

Everything, no matter what we think, is going perfectly.

If you want something, ASK! Life always provides us with what we need, which isn't necessarily what we want - this includes our lessons for growth.

There's always help out there, (for if you can't find it IN there).

We are what we think we are.

Never, never, ever give up hope.

For my third interview I completed really detailed neuro bioligy 8O profile and these results were the 'pair of attributes' out of the full list of 81, that best desribes me:

1. Effusive & Communicative
2. Charismatic & Spellbiding
3. Enthusiastic & Outcome Orientated
4. Considerate & Inclusive
5. Honest & Trustworthy
6. Socialistic & Rights Orientated
7. Industrious & Hard-working
8. Pioneering & Initiating
9. Productive & Task Orientated
10. Active & Attentive Listener
11. Progressive & Change Orientated
12. Wise & Determined

Effusive means to talk profusely in an excited manner, no wonder my wife is always telling me to shut up, poor kid has that to put up with every single day. :lol:

Here were the two least like me:

80. Forceful & Impositional
81. Conservative & Stability Orientated

Here is TJ's Life Map.

His commentary follows.

Klaus

(http://www.tvsmith.com/temp/tjslifemap.jpg)

Big thanks Klaus. :D  

This whole section of posts started off because of the Life Mapping book by Brian and Sangeeta Mayne. In it you capture detailed positive thoughts that people have to describe you. You map out all these thoughts into 7 boxes and then come up with an affirmation sentance and picture to reflect and sum up the descriptions. This then gives you a full picture of you at your very best. You then use various techniques to help you move nearer and nearer towards always being at your best.

It has helped a great deal of people I have worked with to improve and to build thier belief, confidence and positivity. On some occasions it has helped people to really find, understand and fully appreciate themselves.

I still have quite a long way to go.  :oops: Special thanks to TV and the three TUTS who helped me with this, it's really helped me through a very difficult year. :D  

My Life Map

True Self and Life Purpose
I am Love and Light

I love and appreciate myself and those around me
I am the ray of enlightenment; radiating positivity, creativity and wisdom, coaching people to transcend

Mental Traits
I am the Lion and the Lamb

I am the strength, determination, confidence and courage of the lion
I am the gentleness, humility, patience and calmness of the lamb

Emotional Feelings
I am Passion and Compassion

I am focused on success for myself and those I aid

Physical and Health
I am Rocket Fuel

I am alive with energy and enthusiasm

Material and Financial
I am Rich in Life

I am happy, content and live in the present

Social Relationships
I am Starlight

I am fun, caring, professional and inspirational
 
Spiritual
I am the Power of Belief

I glow with the peace and strength within me

Title: I Can Jump A Mountain Now!
Post by: Tj on May 01, 2004, 09:39:33 AM
I recently went to watch some performance presentaions and Frank Dick OBE (who used to coach the likes of Daley Thompson and Boris Becker) was the best presenter. Here are some quotes from him:

Quote
There are two types of people in life; Mountains and Valleys. The Mountains believe they will do their best and when it doesn't work out they don't blame anyone or any thing, they just pick themselves up and have another positive go at it. Valleys believe they are unlucky and they go with the flow of the world, taking no accountability for their life as most things are someone elses fault.

People need the roots to grow and the wings to fly (a coach is the wind behind the wings.)

Be persisitent. Hit form early. Now! Hit the winning rhythm from the begining.

Grab opportunities. They dissapear as fast as a snowflake landing on a path.

Winning in life is being better today than you were yesterday, every day.

You are the best in the world at being you. Don't try to be someone else. Just do better at being you and you'll reach your mountain top.

Title: Stress!
Post by: Tj on May 01, 2004, 09:42:45 AM
Also interesting at the Performance First Forum was the work of Dr Matt Mills on Stress. His research shows that what we call stress is prevalent in the unemployed and people with meanial jobs. Senior executives actually have the least stress. This is because his studies indicate that stress is linked to the amount of meaning and purpose a person has. This has a massive tie in with the above Life Map as this helps you to find your true purpose in life.

Another specialist in stress is Derek Roger who believes that stress is a choice, stress is a re-action you have to a certain situation and you can choose if this is a calm and positive one or a stressfull one. Choosing stress is choosing a shorter life. Check out his excellent (and thin) book on stress called 'Managing Stress: The Challenge Of Change' (ISBN 0-90-213056-0).

I agree stress only happens when you don't have control - if you are in low paid work you generally don't have control as people make decisions on your behalf. Funnily enough Executives get stress when they loss control; take too much on (don't trust subordinates) or get out of their depth (chasing power), and this 'executive stress' is what everybody now understands as stress.

But when it comes to your pic's TJ I'm not so sure - I'm with Mrs F, I see more children's TV than TV Smith; I can see Rainbow, Thunderbirds, Transformers, Vision On, one of those cheaply drawn Japanese cartons....

Title: Stress and Life Maps
Post by: Tj on May 03, 2004, 10:31:50 AM
Interesting that you mention senior management as poor management was described as one of the main causes of stress, poor managers take away peoples meaning and purpose.

The kid influences of the river if life, the tree of self and the rainbow come from the excellent book, Sam The Magic Genie.

The three TV influenced Life Map's are Lion And The Lamb, Like A Rocket (Fuel) and The Power Of Belief ("I can jump a mountain now" and "strength within me.")

If your interested in life and mind maps check out the TV on Wednesday, there is a programme on about a Doctor who shows that kids learning is not all about IQ's and he attempts to turn kids who weren't performing well at school into genius's.

Hmm, I would have thought 'executives' would have just as much stress, if not more, than a person doing 'menial' work.  I may be way off but I'd imagine they have a constant battle of being/acting a certain way to keep up appearances - to their peers and their subordinates, aswell as a certain lifestyle. I know I'm stereotyping but just the word 'executive' to me conjours up images of portly blokes swigging back single malt down the golf club and having dinenr parties!
When I worked in a certain (formerly) British car factory, it was very stressful, but the managers put themselves under far more pressure than us on the shop floor.

"poor managers take away people's meaning and purpose" - people allow their meaning and purpose to be taken. As you say tj, we choose how to react, we either give our power away or not, nobody makes anyone do, say, or be anything.  :)  Also what we percieve as meaningful or purposeful etc, is down to each individual.

This is one of the main perceptions that make stress such a grey issue Shan. Some Doctors do not believe that stress is pressure. At the recent presentation I went on, he believed that it is not even connected to pressure and workload. He said that executives have more pressure, but not stress as they have greater meaning and purpose.

Well, I don't have the highest regard for doctors and their allopathic ways, I'm not saying they're bad or not useful, just I tend to take the holistic view and I hate the 'analytical, brain's doing this' type crap. I've seen all sorts of forms of stress in my line of work and I'm sure all of us have 'been there' too and can speak from experience!
You're right though tj, it is very hard to keep on an even keel when you're being bullied constantly - that was the reason I left my last job!
Some people thrive on stress in their jobs so I suppose, again, it's down to individual perception of limits, but as for meaning and purpose - I'd give alot more respect to (e.g.) a street cleaner than an executive in a car sales company!

I've sent Fleag some more info for my www.firstlightcoaching.co.uk website, so have a look at what I do and if you meet anyone in or out of work who wants to shine and achieve their vision of success ask them to call 01937 844312 and together we'll make their dream a reality. :D

Title: Is There More Than This?
Post by: Tj on October 07, 2006, 12:51:18 PM
Hi TUTS,

The recent changes I've been going through (deatiled in TV Chat > Tj To Re-focus - Dare To Weave Your Dreams) includes a shift in coaching focus. I'm still focused on Corporate work, but I am also taking on more and more individual coaching clients for personal coaching. The coaching can be either face to face or over the telephone, they are equally effective and it does not have the impacket on your pocket that you might think.

If you are interested in having a better life with lots more energy and fun and want to find out more get in touch and let's see what happens when your true potential is unlocked.

I've also decided to support my local community and I've started wrting free aticles for them. The first is about a certain superb singer-songwriting and sublime bass player Exploring in my home village of Clifford.

Here's the advert I've placed in Clifford Outlook to help fund the local newsletter...

“Tim’s coaching made a real difference to my life. I was lacking direction, confidence and vision. Since completing the coaching two years ago I have been promoted four times and now confidently tackle any task head on. Tim has been the hugely supportive force who inspired me to achieve this. I recommend it to everyone.”

Yes, that's right, it was an assumption in a way (but only to give a hint to Tj as to why possibly none of the TUTS got in touch for coaching). But I also met some (!) TUTS in other situations (i.e. no TUTS meeting)...

Why didn't you get in touch with Tj for a coaching?  ;)

This is my main problem Uli. People don't have a clue what my coaching is until they have their fist session. That's why 100% of my business has been referals from people who have experienced it.  :D

In a nutshell I just help people become even better people and help them find their true life purpose.

Of course all the TUTS are so wonderful, so I'd not want to dabble with perfection. :D

Title: THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
Post by: Tj on June 28, 2007, 11:01:27 AM
Hi TUTS,

Klaus and I have been talking about some of my comments on the site connected to my role as a success coach.

After a good chat we have decided that I will continue my more challenging, inspiring and enLIGHTening success coaching posts on my weblog journal...

http://www.starfishrising.typepad.com/

Klaus has kindly placed a link to my weblog at the end on the links page under TUTS.

Thanks mate. :D

Maybe Jock and Fleag's websites could be linked there too, and any other TUTS with sites of weblogs.

The positive side of me feels that some of you found these success coaching posts interesting, so please join me at starfishrising. I'd love to meet you there. :D

Writing the weblog journal is a big step for me in my writing career, so this is the ideal opportunity to go for it.

Of course Tj Sundown can't just bow out without throwing in a little hand grenade to get you thinking...

This one really helped me see the 'greedy' media in a new LIGHT...

"When I discovered The Secret I made that decision that I would not watch the news or read newspapers anymore, because it did not make me feel good. The news services and the newspapers are not in any way to blame for broadcasting bad news.

As a global community, we are responsible for it.

We buy more newspapers when a huge drama is the headline. the news channels' ratings skyrocket when there is a national or international disaster. So the newspapers and news services give us more bad news because, as a society, that's what we are saying we want.

The media is effect and we are the cause. It is just the law of attraction in action.

The news services and newspapers will change what they deliver to us when we emit a new signal and focus on what we want."

...Now that really got me thinking.

You can carry the same thoughts on when you think about the likes of Eastenders and the more recent versions of Big Brother. I remember when a young man full of faith and goodness won Big Brother a few years back. The ratings plummeted. Human beings sometimes seem to love darkness and fear light. Strange isn't it?

Before Tim Sundown, the success coach, takes his leave I'll share with you the five words that after a 16 year search I currently believe to be the secrets to success in life. If you want to learn more about them then join me at starfishrising.  :D

CHOICE

ZONE

BEING

BELIEF

ATTRACTION


Do they work? Yes. How do I know this? Because I have watched people grow and achieve great things after learning and putting into practice the concepts that sit behind these five powerful words. I believe them because I live them. I believe that people with a willing heart and an open mind can have, do and be anything they desire. I believe as the songsmith once sang that we can do anything.

Of course BELIEF is one of the five.

This is why TV Smith is my anti-hero Hero, because he kept going and going. When he thought about becoming a milkman or postman, or whatever in the late 1980's, he didn't he believed in himself and the wisdom in his words and his infectious tunes and he kept carrying on. He kept believing. And look at him now. Second on the bill of the main stage at Britain’s major Punk Festival this year.

He can do anything.

We can do anything.

…Over to you TUTS. You can do anything. :D 

 

Do you know I really love the irony of this little success coaching farewell.

Why do human beings embrace The Dark and reject The Light?



Here's to the second Hello Goodbye this week.

Fare thee well TUTS.

Tim Sundown
Success Coach

We buy more newspapers when a huge drama is the headline.

You do?

I don't think that a lot of TUTS do that or have ever done.
It's a long known fact since ever that people get the shit they ask for.
People are hungry for bad news. But, thank gawd, not all people.
I never bought any tabloid newspaper and I don't watch any crappy television news which has Paris Hilton as the most important
news of the day in its schedule.

But, I think, there is actually media (some newspapers e.g.) which still tries to give a balanced view on things.
Hard to find and you always have to be suspicious.

Post by: Uli on June 29, 2007, 04:27:31 PM
I don't think that a lot of TUTS do that or have ever done.

That's what I also thought, I rather buy less newspapers and watch less TV news (if at all) when there's been a huge disaster or whatever...
Guess the "we" in Tj's posts did not refer to us directly, but in general to the so-called "Western Civilization". (Of course most TUTS do know about the "Misinformation Overload" in the media.)

Btw, I never liked Big Brother and the likes, whoever was on it. Just watching 20 minutes of that crap at a mate's years ago did my head in...  >:(

I don't see myself as part of the so-called 'western civilization'.
Friends and family can confirm that I am not civilized.

Of course I see, that the 'we' refers to all mankind, but here's another quote from TJ's post:

Quote
'Of course Tj Sundown can't just bow out without throwing in a little hand grenade to get you thinking...'

To me that implies that TJ thinks that he is telling us something revealing and new.
I have been aware of that for at least 20 years now.
TV's been singing about this for years.
I wonder why this seems to be so new to you, TJ? Don't you listen to Teev's lyrics.  ;) :o


Big Brother:
I have been watching Big Brother for one season regularly when I used to have lots of time to spend. Years ago.
Now I can hardly think of a greater waste of time than watching some idiots on TV dealing with problems which I can actually find right around the corner in my real life, if I want to.

Post by: Tj on July 03, 2007, 10:34:00 AM
I'm going to close this thread as it feels like the right thing to do. As rather than helping people, which was my soul intent, I seem to be getting a completely different reaction.

From now on I shall just post about TV Smith and music.

Before I go I just wanted to explain what an hand grenade is in English management speak. Hopefully Alan will back me up in this. An hand grenade is when you are in a meeting and you lob in an idea to get people thinking and challenge some of their assumptions.

I am not a violent man at all. Promise. :D

My recent posts have just been trying to help people. Instead they seem to have almost the opposite effect and I am really sorry about this. It was never my intention.

It feels like I am being hounded from this forum and that hurts as it has been a very special place for me.

I'm sure you don't mean it to come over that way.

I wish you both all the very best.

   
Title: Re: Be Your Best You, Create Your Best Life
Post by: Klaus on July 03, 2007, 11:30:08 AM
TJ,

you are not being hounded from this forum.

What made you get that reaction is the way you posted certain things.
Of course we got the symbolic meaning of the 'hand grenade'.
But, it wasn't a hand grenade. It was a dud. (Right word? Don't trust my dictionary. A bomb that doesn't go off?)

I think I can speak for most of the TUTS. We all are pretty aware of how the tabloids work and are integrated into our societies.
Interpreting your post might arouse the feeing that you underestimate us, the TUTS, in certain fields.

That's what we didn't like. Simply as that.
You don't like to be underestimated, too, do you?
Title: Re: Be Your Best You, Create Your Best Life
Post by: Uli on July 03, 2007, 12:07:38 PM
Totally agree with Klaus here. I didn't even know it was this book you talked about (as I happened to stumble over it in a bookshop yesterday I spotted the title). And saying it got mixed reviews should not hound you from a Forum or closing a thread?  ???

What makes me doubt the qualities of said book is this here (from a review):
"Here's a misleading example. Ms. Byrne argues that food doesn't make you fat; it's what you think about food that makes you fat. The punch line of her story is that "I now maintain my perfect weight of 116 pounds and I can eat whatever I want." Every person I have met who is an authority cited in this book is noticeably overweight. Why don't any of them want a perfect weight and be able eat anything they want? "

I'm sure you don't agree with sentences  (or "secrets") like that as well, TJ, or why did you go on about food and weight for many posts a while ago?

This seems strange to me. A discussion is about to start (by accident I seemed to have found the book Tj talked about recently) and then the thread is getting closed by Tj...
(And I also wonder why he just didn't give a link to the book long ago. It is available obviously.)

I suggest everyone to make up their own mind about the book, here's two reviews from amazon (both not totally negative, but in some ways a little "critical" - a good thing IMHO):

"The Secret" is a book about the mysterious "law of attraction" which boils down to this: thinking about something, and believing it will come true actually MAKES the thing you're thinking about happen. I don't believe in the law of attraction.

What I do believe in is CONFIDENCE, BELIEF IN YOURSELF, and POSITIVE THOUGHT. Those are the attritubes of a winner. And indirectly "The Secret" promotes those values.

So if you practice what this book preaches, in its own fun, interesting style, I think you have a pretty good shot at seeing things go your way. But not for the reasons stated in the book and the CD. Things may go right for you because you're practicing good, old fashioned positive thought. And that's never gone out of fashion.

For a VERY FUNNY, laugh-out-loud parody/send up of books like "The Secret" read a book called "Maybe Life's Just Not That Into You" by Martha Bolton. It's the funniest humor book I've read in five years.

As for "The Secret" the book definitely works, albeit in roundabout fashion.

And another one:

Quote
I am in complete agreement with the idea that our thoughts need to be carefully marshaled and focused on what we want. My comments focus on how Ms. Byrne has expressed that point in this book.

Everyone I know swears by the DVD version of The Secret. I decided to read the book first and then look at the DVD.

In grading this book, I am comparing The Secret to the many books that encourage you to create your own reality through mental focus including books written by those quoted in The Secret.

First, what is the secret? As stated in a quotation by Bob Proctor:

"The Secret is the law of attraction!

Everything that is coming into your life you are attracting . . . by virtue of the images you are holding in your mind."

Second, what causes the law of attraction to work? According to Ms. Byrne on page 11:

"You are the most powerful transmission tower in the Universe. Your transmission creates your life and it creates the world . . . . And you are transmitting that frequency with your thoughts."

Third, what's the evidence that this secret is true? Each of 24 authors tells anecdotes of people who overcame hurdles after envisioning a more positive result. A few claims are made that quantum physics supports this conclusion, and Ms. Byrne confides that she understands a great deal about this subject.

Fourth, why is this a secret? Because Ms. Byrne had never heard of the law of attraction prior to a year or so ago.

Let me make a few observations about the development of this idea in the book:

First, science has shown us that we ignore almost all of the sensory input we receive. Our minds focus on a small percentage of what's considered relevant through something called the reticular activating system. Change what you focus on, and you notice things for the first time that have been there all the time. That's one reason why envisioning what you want works: You notice helpful resources around you that you've been ignoring. That observation, however, has never been tied to any evidence (to my knowledge) that we physically create anything with our minds beyond our own bodies, except by manipulating the physical world in various ways.

Second, religion points to a different phenomenon. Christians, for example, read in the Bible that God has filled those who have been saved by repenting their sins and believing in Jesus with the Holy Spirit which permits good works (including miraculous works) to be done by the desire of the believer. The source isn't the believer's mind, but rather God's spiritual resources which are greater than the physical world. Anyone who read these Biblical texts would say that an individual is far from a powerful source of creating reality: An individual can do nothing to change reality without God, but can do anything good with God's help to change reality.

Third, in Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill reported the results of many years of intensive interviews with the most successful people on Earth of his day. Many of them believed that their thoughts physically changed the exterior world by opening the door to possibilities that otherwise wouldn't have existed. But Mr. Hill presented the idea as expressed opinions, rather than as a proven fact. He also pointed to many other things that these people had done that helped them succeed. Mr. Hill reported that it takes more just focusing on what you want: There are other steps involved such as working with a mastermind group.

Fourth, our own bodies are very strongly affected by our thoughts. Scientific research keeps showing new dimensions of that fact. Think certain thoughts and your immune system is stronger. Think other thoughts and your immune system is weaker. In addition, placebos do heal people who think they are getting real medicine when they are not. Why? Because people are really healing themselves. You can extend that influence by behaving well or badly towards others, causing a mental reaction in them, which in turn creates a change in their body chemistries.

By comparing those earlier works, my sense is that what The Secret really represents is one woman's quick attempt to make sense of this kind of information. In doing so, she seems to have oversimplified and misstated what is known about the role of thought in creating life experiences. I doubt if the intent was deliberate or not well intentioned. But after all, she is a film maker, not a student of thought.

By ignoring the full range and roots of the evidence, Ms. Byrne runs the risk of discouraging some people who feel like they are real losers because they cannot evince a perfectly positive reality. If it were as simple as The Secret suggests, we would have billions of people living trouble-free lives. To my knowledge, even the most successful practitioners of The Secret aren't as wealthy as those the most successful people who don't. That would make an interesting study, and a far more valuable book than this one.

Here's an example of a misleading example. Ms. Byrne argues that food doesn't make you fat; it's what you think about food that makes you fat. The punch line of her story is that "I now maintain my perfect weight of 116 pounds and I can eat whatever I want." Every person I have met who is an authority cited in this book is noticeably overweight. Why don't any of them want a perfect weight and be able eat anything they want?

My point for you: Avoid this book.

I encourage you, however, to think positively and learn about how your thoughts can improve your life!

If you want to learn about how to improve your life through your thoughts, consider reading more reliably based and carefully presented sources. If you prefer a secular book, try Think and Grow Rich or The Success Principles. If you would like a book that half-way between a religious and secular focus, try Your Best Life Now. If you want to draw totally on the Christian or Jewish religious roots, read the Bible.

I'll look at the DVD now and let you know what I think of that.

If you wanna know more, ask Tj!  :)

Edit:Should anyone wish to discuss, just let me know py pm and I'll open the thread again. Or just start a new topic.

I'm really sorry to say it, but someone is about to lose his credibility by avoiding discussions as soon as some critical questions come up...  :-\

Quote
Of course Tj Sundown can't just bow out without throwing in a little hand grenade to get you thinking...
A hand grenade is when you are in a meeting and you lob in an idea to get people thinking and challenge some of their assumptions.

Of course this is just an "image", a synonym. But if you do this, you would expect a reaction, wouldn't you?  ???

Also, I do wonder what are your assumptions about the TUTS?

A few other things caught my attention:
Quote
You'll get exactly what you ask for.

So, when you got the (wrong) impression you were "hounded from the Forum", was this what you expected deep in your mind or asked for?  ???

Quote
My recent posts have just been trying to help people. Instead they seem to have almost the opposite effect and I am really sorry about this. It was never my intention.

Again, I'm sorry to say, but posting cryptic messages isn't exactly helping anyone, it's just creating a lot of questions! Klaus and me posted some of them, yet we get no reply...
I am referring to sentences like these:
Quote
"When I discovered The Secret I made that decision that I would not watch the news or read newspapers anymore"
The Secret has been around for 2000 years
It's one of those books that if you believe it doesn't work.

Then why did you not point the people you wanted to help to the book "The Secret" which seems to be available in any good book shop (even the one in Ulm I went to)?
Btw, IMHO the title "The Secret" is misleading, the way I understood the book it is a collection of quotes and sentences - i.e. more a collection of secrets instead of the secret if you know what I mean...  ::)

it probably wasn't a good idea to post some cryptic messages filled with semi-religious topics to a bunch of people who go mad when a 45 year old (you're welcome Teev) infidel plays songs with the title 'The Lord's Prayer', 'New Church' on stage...

It gets stranger and stranger, 45 years old...  ;)

Don't really agree this time. The problem (from my view) is this: "A hand grenade is when you are in a meeting and you lob in an idea to get people thinking and challenge some of their assumptions."

Now we were thinking and posting our responses. (Apparently not the ones he expected, but that's not our fault!)
It also makes me think: what does Tj assume about his fellow TUTS? According to his posts in this thread they're all watching TeleVision, while he is the enLIGHTened one or what...?  ::)

Did any other TUTS but Klaus and me think about this "hand grenade"? Anyone out there???
Title: Re: Be Your Best You, Create Your Best Life
Post by: Klaus on July 04, 2007, 01:30:29 PM
You're right, Uli.
The real problem has been posted by you and me in earlier posts.
I justed wanted to shed another light on this topic.
I think that most TUTS are quite open-minded, but a lot of them probably aren't really interested in concepts and secrets which have a resemblance to religious attitudes and thoughts.
That's what I wanted to say.
Title: Re: Be Your Best You, Create Your Best Life
Post by: Uli on July 04, 2007, 02:07:02 PM
Ok.
I'd like to state one more thing, to stay within the "hand grenade" picture (though it's not ideal in my humble opinion):
If you throw a hand grenade you should be prepared to hear the echo!  ;D

TV Smith even got a mention as I talked about my kind of heroes...

Including John Aries retired owner brewer of Cotleigh Brewery and TV Smith of the Adverts and Explorers.

My own coach (a current finalist in Britain's Next Top Coach) has just had the best financial quarter of her life, where as I in contrast have not. She made it very clear to me with these words... "You can turn your business income around whenever you decide to." I knew she was right.

Yesterday night I decided that I've had enough of it. It is time to embrace love not fear. Belief and faith not doubt and worry. It is the time to focus on positive feeling thoughts. It is time to put the finishing touches to my Rising Talent 2009 Goal Map. It is time to fly.

I've chosen two TV Smith (my other hero) songs for my new found passion to grow... 'Lean Towards the Light' (which I've re-named 'Leap Towards the Light' after my brand new business card and banner image). And 'All the Right Hands Rise' (which I've re-named 'All the Wise Hearts Rise').

Time to fly!

I close the mediation with one the wise words of the hero...

I'm living it, feelining it. Seeing and believing it.

Nice one Uli I love these words... "Living one step at a time. Putting one foot in front of the other, it sure feels right" I remember that when my Mum was seriously ill in hospital the Doctor said "Kick one little pebble at a time. Then a stone. Then a rock. And then your ready for the boulder. It all reminds me of the Little Knocks (Against A Big Door) 80's demo.

"It's been a long way to the light". I see the light as an energy that connects us to our Universe through the conduit of our true Self. In my coaching I refer to the true Self as the inner hero (or the hero Self). The light within and the energy light of the Universe I see as God. ...A connected feeling of conciousness and oneness. Living our values through helping others and spreading what's good within the World.   

Quote
The light you need to find your way through when you are surrounded in darkness is actually the light you find yourself. I think I'm together with Tj when I say that that light is the one that comes from within you (not the one they try and point at you to blind you). When you actually look with the real light at what's going on in The World you find that it's actually very easy to see what's going on. This is a song about that called SEE THROUGH.

I'm so pleased that me quoting TV's wise words inspired you Nick.  :D

Why nuy her the Goal Mapping book or DVD from www.liftinternational.com Nick and help your daughter move towards that goal even faster. Or better still lend her your copy if you bought it. ;)

Dreams are made of this. :D

It would be interesting to know how long your daughter believes getting a better job with more money will make her happy. Every career coaching client I've had has moved into a better job with more money only to find that that doesn't deliver long term true happiness.

...Mind you it sure isn't going to do her too much harm.

Wealth is not particularly a bad thing. With a lot of money you can do a lot of good. Greed on the other hand is what I'd call a bad thing.

The problem is that many people see money as the answer to future happiness when actually happiness is a NOW experience.

I think that's what C5 meant when he encouraged us to "LIVE FOR TODAY!"

Actually she is at university so the job she requires is something temporary to help pay her way & supplement her loan. She is torn at the moment between interior design or something to do with media as her actual carreer path. Her uni course is film making but since she has met her future husband she has lost alot of interest in that. Shame because her work has been good. Once her wedding is out of the way I expect she will put more thought into her carreer. Her fiance is in the army so they are not sure where they are going to be posted to yet.
I will give her the goal mapping info as she is quite open to the concept of positive thinking etc.

Quote
The baby steps in the beginning of a journey, Tim, always seem inadequate compared to the brilliance of the dream that inspired them. This is natural. If the dream wasn't so far "out there" and dazzling, it wouldn't be worth dreaming! Just don't be led to think that the physical ground you cover with your baby steps is all that they accomplish. Because for every mortal step you take, another cog in a giant wheel behind the curtains of time and space advances, and with it, 10,000 new possibilities.

Better than Star Trek,

And you shall wonder, Tim, at what you ever did to deserve so very much....

...Alan pointed out that I didn't sound like the PosiTV he knew.

I came home and played the 80s Demos.

Make My Escape hit me like a ton of bricks around the head.

These words really resonated with me. It was like I had never truly heard them before...

"You melt like ice
Flow like water
Overwhelmed your course alters"


The ultimate irony is that this was the song that TV played for me at my Marshalls freedom do at the first Earthbound Elland. 

The chorus hit me like a dump truck and made me Wake up...

"Make your escape
YOU'VE GOT TO CHANGE!"


I'd seen the light. It was time to let go of blaming greedy bankers for the economic climate.

It was time for giving.

It was time to say farewell to my regular night classes and Rising Talent Ltd.

Be YOU
Be True
Believe

My other hero, Brian Mayne, had told my the way back was to truly believe in myself.

“Tim is a passionate and powerful guide who lives what he teaches. He shines a light that helps others travel their path.”

He's using the chance of Easter being right now, to bring across his point of view, if you know what I mean (in my humble etc.).

Post by: Tj on April 15, 2010, 08:33:43 AM
To clarify; I have a new business called True Results

It is a big change for me around what I do as a Results Guide and the focus on results that my personal growth programme achieves.

In a nutshell...

Rising Talent (my previous business) focused on Career Acceleration and Talent Management.

True Results focuses on the achievement of Real Results through Improved People.

True is about living my business values by being honest, authentic, straight and true.
Results is about helping my clients to achieve 3 Key Results through people.

Why have I launched my business here instead of on my website?

Two reasons. 1. My new branding isn't ready yet. 2.Because this is a special place to be.

...Where do you think the name came from, True Believer?  ;)

Sorry I've been away so long TUTS, the past few weeks it's down to problems with Plusnet.

...Now if only I could track down the blighter that introduced me to them.  ;) ;D ;D ;D

Anyway, normal service is now resumed.

Big thanks to Fleag for pointing out where the problem would most likely be.  :D

The good news is that TV had already told me he's playing The Well in Leeds. A venue I thought about booking him in a decade ago. Hurrah! I'll also do my best to make Manchester too.

The bad news is that whilst my business is doing 42% better than last year, I'm still trying to get back to where I was in 2006, so there is no way we can make it to Germany for EARTHBOUND I'm afraid. Sorry Klaus, TV and the TUTS.

I still feel that Coming in to Land is right up there with TV's finest masterpieces and I still play it a lot.

If Dawning of False Hopes is the drama's and trauma's of 2011 then Coming in to Land is the magic and miracles of 2011 and 2012.

Really excited about The Well. It was one on my three wishes.

Good things come to those who wait.

It's good to be back home in our forum again. :D

Sorry to hear Earthbound have a few bugs this year.

Hope to see some of you at Leeds and Manchester next week.

I've been away way too much this year, to catch up here's a quick Tj update...

I left my networking group Alan and set myself up as a Connector who's connecting quality people to win them more clients. One of the clients I win work for is my own True Results business which is nice.

Most importantly I've finally read my own printed novel (the story so far). My writing stalled after the untimely passing of C5 and then my close friend and kindred spirit Jeni Starfish earlier this year. My last two chapters were both dream sequaences dedicated to them, to letting go and to coming in to land. Of course the C5 sequence featured a certain key charecter called The Songsmith. Can't think who this great man could be based on. ;)

How are you TUTS all doing?

So, UK TUTS what's happening about EARTHBOUND 2012?

See you real soon Teev.  8)

...As you might have guessed from the previous post I've wriiten a chapter in my clients (Richard 'I Can' McCann's) new book. The chapter is called 'I Can do anything and that's the wonderful thing'. It includes a couple of tributes to TV and closes with an amalgamation of singing Carrying On with TV at my 50th birthday and the Dare To Dream 'Exploring Madness' gigs where I sang live with The Explorers TV & Stoner and The Doctors of Madness Kid & Stoner. 

It's been a good year for True Results so far. The best days since mid 2008 and it's amazing to be back living my life purpose of inspiring true growth on a more regular basis. I had a lovely compliment from my main client last week ahen they flew a sales manager in from Dubai for three hour's Results Guidance with me and then flew him straight back out again.

The thing is I'd been working so hard I'd lost a bit of touch with some parts of my life. A colourful Wheel of Life session with my new Life Coach confirmed this. In fact at one point I completly forgot I was supposed to be writing a novel. This theme continued yesterday...

On Friday I had a 1:1 meeting with a salesman from Insider magazine and he shocked me back! He started the meeting by saying that after reading my Linkedin site we have a couple of things in common. TV Smith and Eckhart Tolle.

...My mouth just fell open when he said TV Smith so he switched to talking about Tolle's the Power of Now for a minute before returning to ask about TV. It turned out he was in a few Punk bands including a Punk Tribute band of The Heartbreakers. We had met lot's of the same people and chatted for an hour about TV and Punk. we wrapped up the business meeting in just 15 minutes.

This made me Wake Up, so I took the rest of the afternoon off (well it was 5pm) and had a little pub crawl around Leeds.

Today I'm back on the forum. Next job is to start writing my novel again.

It's good to be back.

York Tap has soooooo many ales.

Pub wise my current York favourites are The Pivni and The House of Trembling Madness.

Glad you enjoyed the crawl. Sorry youi didn't get to see Lisa. I had it in my head that you met her last night. She'd got you some sausagese. Oops!

I always wanted to be Scott in Thunderbird 1.

With new clients in Dubai and Italy I can now finally say I am International Rescue. ;D

Fancied a sparkling new avatar.

Decided to choose the TV Smith album I'm most connected with for several reasons.

"Keep on carrying on everybody."

They are old demos. And you are old too? Or where's the connection?  ;D

Yep! Me and the demo's were both born in the 80's.

Mind you that's tricky as I met the lovely Lisa who became my wife 32 years ago tonight. In about an hours time to be totally accurate.

Of course I knew this demo collection is special for you. For years (literally) you'd been raving about these demos, nearly driving some of us crazy (especially those who hadn't heard them!), but finally there was an official release (and now a second volume). Happy endings.  8)  :)

You married at 0.11 o'clock?  :o

Ah! But all that raving by me and Klaus finally helped to persuade TV to release them for evryone. There was method in our madness.

That's "first met" at 11pm Uli not married. ;)

I see.  :)

And yes, of course all this helped to create some interest!

One year on and I'm still Carrying On.

...and on.  ;D

Just about to start writing my second book.

My Novel journey is life connected and work in progress.

The new book will be focused on my programme at True Results which I'm considering calling The True Potential Programme. The book hasn't a title yet. I'm hoping it will come to me in a Raw Meat for The Missionaries type inspiration.

TV's World travelling and record making perseverance continues to inspire me to new heights and keeps me Carrying On.

Oh! That reminds me I also appeared at a key point in a video about waiting. Don't blink or you'll miss it!  :o

Actually I'm really proud to be in the documentary. Especially at that moving point in TV's story. It means a lot to me. Cheers Jamie. 8)

You just can't keep up with the prolific wordsmith. I share I'm about to start my second book and TV announces his fourth completed book.

You Rock TV!  8)

On and on and on.

Someone said to me tonight "you don't have to go and see TV at The Hop".

"Oh! YES I DO!".
