Managing Thought the Key to Success in Business and in Life.

Jim's signature program is a very thought-provoking experience. Here you will begin to understand that your life becomes a manifestation of the thoughts you CHOOSE to hang on to. A better life is just a thought away. We discuss strategies for ridding ourselves of those nagging negative thoughts and cultivating positive, empowering thoughts.

We discuss:

Self-awareness: We learn to pay attention to the many (psychologists say 6,000) thoughts we think every day. Many of which are the same ones we thought the day before.

The Nature of Thought (a thought is just a thought): Many people believe that their thoughts are their life. In reality that could be the case. Here we will, through a short meditative exercise, learn to notice thoughts and let them go. It is important to understand that "I am not my thoughts". Thoughts continually show up in our minds. We develop the SKILL to identify a thought and decide if we will hang on to it or let it go. We can become the observers of our thoughts

Your Happiness Quotient: We examine the latest studies on happiness and see that we play a crucial part in determining our own sense of well-being. Through dramatization, we see how our self-talk plays a major part in how we feel about ourselves. How we feel about ourselves is equal to our self-esteem, which plays a big part in our success and happiness in our lives at work and at home.

Creating New Pathways: Latest brain science has exposed to world to the term neuroplasticity. In other words, we have the ability to change our brain. We look at strategies to begin to live our best lives through visualization and affirmations.

The Pillow Story: A guaranteed laugh!

One Word Can Change Everything: Turn an everyday chore into a blessing.

Simple Happiness
Eight Characteristics of Happy People

This is one of Jim's signature programs. Thousands have been inspired and motivated to take charge and live happier, more joyful lives. Jim challenges his audiences to look within to recognize their true potential and to set the intention to achieve personal success. People walk out of this program with smiles on their faces, wondering why they are so miserable when in reality they have so much to be grateful for.

We discuss:

INTENTION: We understand that it is not the circumstances of our lives that matter, but it's how we deal with those circumstances that determine our level of happiness.

ACCOUNTABILITY: We understand that our happiness is our business. There is no blame game. I am the person that I am because of every choice I've ever made in my life. That idea can be scary, but if we take responsibility for our choices and actions, we can begin to make real progress.

KNOW WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND FIND TIME TO DO IT: I finally figured it out. The only reason to be alive is to enjoy it. Are we having fun during the day? Are we lifting people up during the day?

FOLLOW YOUR BLISS: "When you follow your bliss, doors will open that you didn't even know existed" - Joseph Campbell. Step out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself a bit. Feel the fear and do it anyway.

RECASTING: Happy people mourn, they cry, they grieve. But they get to the point where they say, "How can I give honor to the situation I find myself in?" They learn to find the opportunity in every problem.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

OPTIONS: Just because I've lived my life in a certain way up until now does not mean that I must live my life that way for the rest of my life. It all starts as we observe how we see our lives as soon as we get out of bed.

APPRECIATION: Happy people take nothing for granted. They see all things as blessings. They start their day with, "Thank God I can get out of bed by myself." Gratitude is the place to start.

GIVING: Happy people understand that it's better to give than receive. But, it's what's in your heart that really matters. Compassion is key. They practice compassion instead of judgment.

Life is Not a Dress Rehearsal

Being in the present moment is all that matters.

Discover the benefits of following your bliss, uncovering your genius, and realizing your highest potential. In this program, Jim offers a wider perspective for his audience so they can be more objective observers of their lives. Through a metaphoric mansion, Jim portrays the many rooms of opportunity awaiting you outside of the foyer known as the "comfort zone."
