My 81 Year Old Dad is So Damn FRUSTRATED!
Have you ever shared an idea with someone who totally “got” what you were saying right away? I don’t know if you can remember a time, a specific time when you learned something new and just couldn’t wait to run and tell your best friend about it. Maybe you saw a great movie or TV show and just had to bring someone else into the experience. Chances are there was no hesitation on your part. You learned something or discovered something, got excited and shared it.
Then perhaps you shared it with someone else and they just weren’t impressed. They didn’t “get” it. Or worse like Little Miss Crankypants (yes that is a reference to a song I wrote recently) they metaphorically popped your balloon.
Or, could you kind of tell they were just humoring you and hoping you’d talk about something else?
All of a sudden your wonderful, shiny new discovery started to get a bit tarnished.
What if you had the ability to keep your passion and excitement and communicate it to other people in a way that you the results you wanted?
How do you learn to influence other people so easily, positively and effortlessly it seems like magic?
Whether you’re inviting people to a party or asking someone out on a date or selling your products or services or convincing your teenager to stay away from drugs and alcohol, the ability to influence and persuade are just about the most crucial skills anyone can have. Don’t you agree?
Some people just seem to come by it naturally. For the rest of us, it takes conscious, persistent effort to learn and integrate the many beliefs, behaviors, skills, and mind sets that enable us to become masters of our communication.
Now, you could take my Modern Jedi NLP Training now available in a convenient, affordable On-Line/Hands-On format.
or you could check out this 7 day persuasion program I recently discovered by AJ Kumar.
AJ Kumar’s 7 day Persuasion course
Or you don’t have to change what you’ve been doing…if it’s working for you and you’re getting everything you want out of life why change now?
You know the truth though. What you’ve been doing ain’t working that well is it? Frustration is a great motivating force! So Get EXCITED!
Why my Dad is so FRUSTRATED
I was talking to my dad the other day. He’s 81 years old and healthy as a horse. He swims a half a mile 3 times a week. He looks like he’s 60. He has a trim muscular body with no flab at all. He’s sharp and alert. He just did the swimming leg of a Tri-athelon. For the last 30 years he has passionately and thoroughly studied everything there is to know about health, nutrition, natural healing etc.
He has vast amounts of knowledge about health and nutrition but little experience in getting other people to STOP and:
a. Listen to him
b. Value his expertise
c. Take his advice
d. Make the changes that in some cases could save their lives!
He’s so FRUSTRATED.
Can you relate? He wants so much to help people and to guide people to a place where they can feel good physically. He walks his talk. But he wants to be more than just a “good example”. He wants to actively influence other people in a positive way.
Now a lot of 81 year olds would say, “oh well. Too soon oldt, too late Scmartt”. Not my dad! In fact, I would be willing to bet that after he reads this blog post, he’ll sign right up for my NLP Training so he can learn how to actually get his message out to people who most need and want to improve their health and well being. And you know I’ll help him and by helping him I will indirectly help people I wouldn’t otherwise have any hope of influencing. That’s why I get so excited about this stuff that I have to share it with YOU!
Or maybe he’ll order AJ Kumar’s 7 day Persusuasion course
After all AT AGE 81 he has a lifetime of knowledge to share and he only has another 30 years to get it out! :o)
