    Attitude is the one thing all human beings have complete control of and yet many unknowingly choose a negative attitude. If we understood the power of our own attitude in our lives, most of us would change it immediately. How many times have you been told to change your attitude? That is a common order from most parents and teachers!

    Attitude is created by your thoughts, feelings and actions. Your mind controls feelings and decides whether these feelings will be positive or negative through your thoughts. Your body then follows these thoughts through actions and behaviors. It sounds simplistic because it is.

    Through our thoughts, we create an attitude. This attitude is expressed based on how we internalize ideas. Our mind and body move into a new vibration of conscious awareness known as feelings. These feelings are then displayed through actions and behaviors that produce the results in our lives.

    Attitude [Thoughts + Feelings + Actions] = Results

    Imagine feeding our minds with positive thoughts and flow through the process. We will end with positive results. Now imagine feeding our minds with negative thoughts and flow through the process. Makes sense, doesn't it?

    By changing our thoughts, we can change our attitude, which will ultimately change our results. Attitude is the creative cycle that allows us to feel a certain way and then take the necessary action to a specific result.

    Start with the end in mind and make the decision that today is the day to change your attitude!

    Fear can manifest itself in many different ways. However, you must remember that fear is -- in basic terms -- false evidence appearing real. Also, whether it feels this way or not -- you are in control of your emotions and reactions to everything that happens in your life. Do you want to learn how to better control your reactions and overcome the fear that drives those reactions?

    Another way fear manifest itself is when you timing is off. What we men here is when you think about something and making the decision to do it when there is no possibility of doing it at that very moment, your timing is off. The reason is that your fear barrier is down and your brain is not scared of failing. However, when the next day rolls around and your subconscious starts thinking about the possibility of failing and how much failing would hurt, it springs into action in an attempt to protect you.

    Behavior defined can be a physical thing one does such as a morning routine and it can be non-physical such as replaying negative thoughts all day long.

    A few behaviors are instinctual and built in while the rest are learned through meeting needs. What this means is that our behaviors are motivated by our needs and therefore we can be manipulated as well as manipulate to have our needs met.

    So when we have negative behaviors and we want to change them, we find it isn't always so easy because these learned behaviors that we exhibit are actually rather complex.

    There are two types of motivation -- the motivation to approach something and the motivation to avoid something. When we desire something, we are motivated to approach it therefore receiving positive reinforcement or feedback. When we avoid something, we are motivated to move away from it or we will receive negative reinforcement or feedback. This is pretty simple.

    We understand that when we eat something sweet, most of us have a pleasant experience and when we eat something sour, our faces pucker and we try to avoid that experience again.

    But let's look at those things we approach or avoid because the thing doesn't create that behavior, we do. Some people desire the adrenaline rush of jumping out of an airplane. It is exhilarating -- it is something they repeat again and again as it has a positive affect on them and they desire that and are motivated to seek that experience. Some people avoid even the thought of getting on an airplane due to their learned fears that it will absolutely crash and they will die no matter what statisticians say -- forget purposefully jumping out of a perfectly good airplane!

    Did the airplane create these behaviors? No! We learned them. And each of us react differently to different things, experiences, tastes, smells, thoughts, etc. All because of our own personal thoughts and behaviors.

    So how do you change your behaviors? Your thoughts? Practice, shaping and chaining.

    By using these techniques, you can change an old behavior that you don't want for a new one that you do want. Whatever you want to change, practice your new desired behavior, shape the new behavior by approaching it in different ways and ask for feedback all the while tweaking it, chain all the components of the new skills you are now mastering together and now you have successfully changed your behavior.

  3. International Empowerment and Transformation Ambassador, Keynote Speaker and Best Selling Author

    My mission is to empower you to transform your life and business so you can achieve all that you desire by teaching you to understanding how you are wired.

    Sound familiar...

    I feel like I'm always running uphill.
    I feel like I'm running against the wind.
    Nobody understands me.
    Why does it always take me longer than it should to do something?
    Why do I always feel tired at the end of each day?
    I dread waking up in the morning.
    I dream about being somewhere else.
    I hate my job.
    I dream about doing something else.

    If something above sounded familiar, then I have a solution that will help you. Before we get to it, please keep reading and see if you fit into one of the three groups of people I work with.

    Before I get into the three groups, let me answer the most common question I am asked, "Why don't you focus on one group rather than working with three groups?"

    The answer is simple -- I am an entrepreneur (group #1) who had owned or managed multiple small to medium-sized businesses (group #2) and experienced two layoff a few years back that led me to almost be a 99-weeker (group #3). So, you see, I am wired and passionate about helping these three groups because I am familiar with each and have enough experience with each group to make a different in those people's lives.

    Here are more details on each of the three groups I work with.

    Group #1: Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs have a unique challenge. Most entrepreneurs need to be everything to their business, or at least they think they do. This leads to overwhelm, overload and being over stressed which in-turn leads to damaged personal and business relationships, loss of sleep, loss of revenue and potentially loos of the business and/or (in extreme cases) a failed marriage. What most entrepreneurs don't realize is that, if they committed to focus on doing things they were wired to do and found a way to delegate everything else, they would be less stressed and see higher profit margins.

    Group #2: Small to medium-sized Businesses. The challenge facing most small to medium-sized business is profit growth. Forget the top line it's the bottom line that matters. What makes this difficult (and what more business owners don't understand) is that, having the wrong person doing a job is worse than having no body doing it. When I say wrong person, what I mean is someone who is doing a job they weren't wired to do.

    Group #3: Unemployed and underemployed individuals. What many people who are unemployed or underemployed don't realize is that, being in the situation they are in may be a sign from God (the Grand Overall Designer) that they weren't doing what they were wired to do in their last job. Sometimes, all people need is the proverbial 2x4 to the head (i.e. getting laid off) to realize that they aren't doing what they were wired to do. I know it was this way for me and for countless others that I have coached and mentored.

    After reading this far, most people ask me, "Chris, what are the options to work with you?" Here they are...

    Keynote, lunch-and-learn and workshop speaking engagements: I bring my signature talk to your business, networking group, organization, meetup group or anywhere you can assemble a group of people. If you provide the audience, I'm there.

    I also offer online courses, mastermind groups, mentoring and coaching. You can read more about these at my website http://chrismsprague.com

    If you're still reading, something above must have resonated with you. Wonderful!

    You're next steps are as follows...

    If you are thy type who likes personal, direct attention, go to http://chrismsprague/fitandstrategysignup to reach out to me to setup a free, no obligation Fit and Strategy Session. The goal of this session is to take 30 minutes to get to know each other and determine if you fit into the model of someone who would benefit from what I have to offer and if I am a fit to help you.

    If you are the type who is more comfortable in a group setting or listening in to a conference call, web cast, etc., go to http://chrismsprague.com/freesessionsignup to sign-up for an upcoming free teaching and Q&A call.

    As one of my mentors Les Brown says, "step into your greatness". After studying people, how they act, how they behave, what drives them and many other things over the past 25+ years, I am convinced that the way to do this is to understand how you are wired.

    Another one of my mentors John C. Maxwell says, "you have to give up to go up". In this case, all you're giving up is a small amount of time in exchange for some possibly life-changing information.

    Thanks for taking your valuable time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    All my best, Chris

    Fear is critical to our survival. It keeps us protected from legitimate threats and danger. If we only had life threatening fears, we'd be a very different society. Instead we have additional irrational fears based on traumas, bad experiences, or those all too often handed down fears from our ill-advised relatives.

    Looking at your fears, take a quick inventory in your head of what you are afraid of. Heights is usually at the top of the list and a legitimate fear although some go to extremes but there is a danger element in falling. What else makes your list? Wild animals? Spiders? Rejection? Pain? Flying? Swimming? Public Speaking? Relationships? People? The color blue?

    Fears are thoughts that we create based on experiences either that we have had or others have had and have imprinted onto our minds. These fears are created, perpetuated and held in our minds. Sometimes even becoming too intense and then we develop anxieties and find our fears crippling our progress.

    By giving in and accepting our fears, we cannot move forward. We cannot grow. We are stopped in our tracks. For example, fear of failure is common in varying degrees. It keeps people from progressing in their careers, relationships, commitments. People who exhibit this fear tend to stay in dead end jobs, stay in bad marriages, take the hand that's dealt to them. Accepting life as is and not daring to risk failing so why bother, why try? How about fear of rejection? I'm not good enough anyway... I can't do that job, I don't have the credentials or experience and they won't like me anyway...

    So frustrating, right? We all know someone like this. Maybe it's us? Maybe we need a little push, a little self confidence, a realization that the fear we carry with us is made up, make believe, we can change our thinking and let go of whatever trauma we hold on to that makes the fear so real -- so tangible -- so part of our lives that we accepted long ago that it just is.

    Sometimes we need help from others to work through our fears. Sometimes we need a trusting mentor to show us the way, to gently guide us on our journey and break free of these fear chains we have grown to "love" so much.

    Flexibility
    The first thing that comes to mind is yoga. When we practice yoga everyday our bodies become flexible and we are able to bend down and touch our toes and scratch that sweet spot on the back we couldn't get before.

    How about yoga for the mind? How about stretching and letting go and practicing and breathing and holding poses (thoughts) for periods of time? Mental yoga! What a concept. If you have ever taken a yoga class then you know exactly what I am talking about. And if you haven't -- go take one right now!

    Yoga is the practice of stretching and holding poses for periods of time and focusing on your breathing -- a movement meditation that grounds you and balances your chakras. It is absolutely relaxing and worth a try.

    Now let's do that with our minds -- opening up and letting in all the happiness that we all crave. Isn't that what everyone says -- when asked -- what do you want -- I want to be happy. Why are so many people unhappy? Are they really unhappy or do they just need to do some mental yoga to open up their minds and welcome in flexibility?

    What does it mean to be flexible? More than willing to meet someone 30 minutes later than scheduled. It means to embrace life, live in the present, be open to change, be willing to accept what is, to be happy that you are breathing and your heart is beating. This is freedom. This mental wellbeing is what flexibility is.

    This isn't to be confused with accepting everything as is and thinking all is good and positive. There is a yin and yang to everything. With good is bad. With cause is effect. But imagine using the entire spectrum of emotions to move you towards those things that you value the most. Family, health, life... whatever is most important to you.

    Stretch your mental muscles through acceptance, curiosity and commitment.
    Accept negative emotions as opposed to trying to control or eliminate them. This in turn will help you make better choices and decisions and will reduce anxiety.
    Curiosity allows you to observe and explore negative reactions without judgments that will cloud and impede the learning process.
    Freeing your mind from resistance makes committing to actions and behaviors easier and allows you to be more open.

    Negative thoughts should be accepted into your mind -- then ask yourself why you are thinking that way and what is the outcome you seek by having these negative thoughts -- then release them making room for more productive positive thoughts to enter.
