Not sure what to do for Valentine’s Day yet? I’m back on “Let’s Talk About Sex” with Melanie Kelly on XFM100.2 to talk about how to create a celebration of love that’s a total success, without breaking your bank account.
Have you heard about the basketball experiment that proved you can vastly improve your chances for success by visualising the results you want? No?! Well, a psychologist named Alan Richardson split a group of basketball players into 3 groups:
- The first group practiced free-throws for 20 minutes a day.
- The second group visualised themselves making successful free-throws everyday, but didn’t physically practice.
- The third group didn’t practice or visualise – they did NADA!
Richardson found that the visualisation group VASTLY improved in their free-throwing ability, and were almost as good as the group who practiced daily!
Do you run a small business and sometimes wonder how you can more effectively let people know you’re out there? Or maybe your business isn’t established yet, but you often think about having your own blog or YouTube channel?
Here are the 4 steps I followed and continue to follow to grow my business with my blog and YouTube Channel. This simple formula has helped me to consistently get my name out there as an expert in my field, and consequently, it directs the people who are looking for my service to me.
Apply these 4 concepts to your business communication, to let people know how your service/product can add value to their lives.
New Year’s Resolutions get a bad rep sometimes and for different reasons. Some people say we should love ourselves as we are and stop trying to improve. Some say resolutions are stupid because they don’t work. And others say screw New Year’s; if you want to improve yourself, do it now!
The concept of the Resolution exists because one of our most fundamental human needs is “growth”. We all need to be achieving and expanding our sense of self to be able to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives.
The fact that it happens around New Year’s is just because whenever something comes to an end, it’s a good time to reflect on what was good, what could have been better, and what we want more or less of next time.
