Death, separation or abandonment These fears are usually embedded by the time we are 5 despite the great intentions of our parents! www.amandagore.com
  10. 10. Feel Good About Yourself This is actually the most important point. The most important thing in life is how you feel about yourself - because that affects every other aspect of your life - especially your performance. A person who feels good about themselves can focus on making others feel good about themselves! This makes for a great colleague or boss. www.amandagore.com
  11. 11. When you feel great about yourself, you can focus on making everyone else feel great about themselves - the secret of success! www.amandagore.com
  12. 12. The reason you feel so great when you are 'in love' with someone else – (before you see their warts and your own) - is because you finally see yourself in your astonishing spiritual nature … and you fall in love with YOURSELF www.amandagore.com
  13. 13. Be a walking JOY spot www.amandagore.com
  14. 14. Remember to see yourself as a joy facilitator . Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to help everyone else discover their own joy - or at least have joyful moments around you. www.amandagore.com

  16. 16. A leader‟s job is to: Change peoples behaviors by telling them a story that touches their hearts and makes them want to change. Create an environment in which people can be the best they can be - joy filled and fear free. Help people believe in themselves - belief in your own ability is a better predictor of success than any level of skill. www.amandagore.com
  17. 17. Neurons that fire together wire together . What you focus on you create. Focus on good - be a good finder! Be a Good Finder “Research shows that when people work with a positive mind- set, performance on nearly every level—productivity, creativity, engagement—improves.” Harvard Business Review www.amandagore.com
  18. 18. Keep Learning Change is great for your brain - it keeps you smart and young! It keeps you learning, growing and developing. www.amandagore.com
  19. 19. Life is all about FARCing, UN FARCing and RE FARCing! Learning, unlearning and re-learning! To re-hardwire our brains we need to FARC! Which stands for: F Focus on the behaviour/habit/pattern you want to change A Attention and Awareness - be aware of what fears trigger that behaviour/habit/pattern R Repetition - repeat the new behaviours C Celebration - celebrate any changes! No matter how small! How to Change: FARC www.amandagore.com
  20. 20. Your job today is to start rewiring the brain for joy! The smart brain (pre frontal cortex) controls the impulsive brain (limbic system) but not until our mid 20's! The impulsive brain is fully formed at birth and our Amygdala is wired for fear from the minute we are born. The first emotion in response to change is FEAR www.amandagore.com
  21. 21. When you feel fear - if it's not in response to real physical danger, say 'thank you Ammy but not now!' and breathe. www.amandagore.com
  22. 22. Watch for these fears
  23. 23. F.O.W.O.T Fear of what others think No one else is thinking about you - they are too busy wondering what YOU are thinking about them! www.amandagore.com
  24. 24. F.O.F Fear of the future or Fear of failure It's a waste of time! STOP IT! Live in the present - be conscious of experiencing the present moment and STOP the second you think of the past or the future - the past is gone and the future has not happened yet! www.amandagore.com
  25. 25. Fear of Separation Connect your head to your heart Connect your heart to other people’s hearts Connect your heart to the heavens Get connected www.amandagore.com
  26. 26. Epigenetics and Bruce Lipton tells us in The Biology of Belief that our beliefs control our genes. Look deeply - what ARE your beliefs and fears? They become the STORY - the FAIRY story you tell yourself about yourself, your colleagues, your customers or clients, your boss, your family - your partner. You can change your story any time you want to. What Story are you telling yourself? www.amandagore.com
  27. 27. What do you believe about your children? What story do you tell yourself about your children - all of them? Even if you don't say it out loud, they will know it! What Story are you telling your children? www.amandagore.com
  28. 28. We don't see reality, we perceive and judge. We can't see the whole picture in most cases - we only see our narrow perspective. Be open… open to knowing that you know very little! Try to see a bigger picture in every case. www.amandagore.com
  29. 29. For example, when an a cappella group of 4 are working together perfectly in harmony, a fifth voice develops Out of nowhere, magic happens and a new sound is created. Do your part to be a team member. Be a joy facilitator in the team. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. (Buckminster Fuller) www.amandagore.com
  30. 30. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Emotional intelligence (EQ) is critical for success in relationships - at work and home. EVERYTHING in life is about feelings.

  47. 47. Amanda Gore Amanda Gore is one of Australia's and America's most popular 'experience creating' speakers. She blends the principles of ancient wisdom with new research in modern science to wake people up to what really matters - in life and at work. Involving the audience in an entertaining way that gets them all connected, she shares strategies, techniques and skills that allow people to adapt to change, transform their attitudes, eradicate fear, and improve relationships, communication, leadership, sales and customer service. The most important thing in life is how you feel about yourself - because that affects every other aspect of your life - especially your performance. The ability to make others feel good about themselves is rarely taught, yet critical for success in any field. People are 80% emotional and 20% rational - they will never forget how you made them feel! Amanda teaches people how to operate at that feeling level!
