3 More Words to Ban from your Vocabulary Now

3 More Words to Ban from your Vocabulary Now

Words to BanThis year I have decided to be a conscious writer and speaker. While starting some study into conversational hypnosis and embedded word commands I have decided to start with banning the following words in my vocabulary right Now. The most common words authors say to ban from your vocabulary are: But, Should, Don’t, Never and Have To. These words can be dis-empowering and secretly discouraging to the unconscious mind so good-bye they are to my emails and speech. Some of these words are not necessary wrong but what they do is they stop you from taking action. They fool us into thinking that we have no power or choice.  However I am carrying another 3 words I plan to ban as well. I thought about what words I use on a regular basis and why it may also serve to drop them. Do you recognize these additional 3?

No 1 is Try

In the past I might have said I would try my best to do something. The intention being I was unsure of the how or not confident of my success so I would say or write in an email that I would TRY. I would try to save money. I would try to lose weight. I would try to build a business online. But as I discuss the TRY phenomenon we all use I have now been taught that there is NO TRY.

“Do or Do not. There is no try.”

try or not to try

Actually while Googling for this article I found it was a Yoda quote. LOL I had no idea. Don’t you love Google?

My favourite two analogies are please try and pick up that pen. You either pick it up or you don’t. Or another favourite one. A tree does not try to grow. It either grows or doesn’t.

Are you a growing tree? I am.  Learning, stretching and reaching for the stars while bedding roots to secure me. So goodbye try that word no longer exists.

Another one I am eliminating in my writing is Hope.

Hope is like Try but has a feeling of helplessness. I hope for something better that will never come along. Hope gets me excited about things, makes me think that maybe things can be different, that something new that will change things for me is right around the corner. But it never is. I refer to hope in an email or speaking when I am hoping someone will do something I have no control over. No more Hope for me. It is a loss leader word and I am sure more empowering words of belief and and will, will replace it.


I get asked how I am or even more prophetic how has your last X years been and I usually reply, “Busy.” Sure we are all Busy. Busy to sum up my life has now been banned because all I am doing it attracting more busy in my life. Be gone! Instead my intention is for a cleaner, focused, streamlined life. I intend to remove the busy of activities and sum up my life. Cut out the stuff which is just stuff.

Talk to any personal development expert and you’ll hear that the words you use have the power to change your life — whether you’re talking to other people or to yourself.  Exchange words that sound negative and carry low energy (never, nobody, bad, guilt) for positive, uplifting ones (can, good, will, love), and you’re well on your way to a happier life. Now, it’s fairly easy to recognize how using undeniably negative terms can cut into your happiness bucket. But what about the more subtle words, the ones that sneak in and sabotage you in ways you may not know? Do you have words you want to take control of which will impact your thoughts, actions and life?

Reply in your comments below and I would love to share them.

A List of 100 Things

A List of 100 Things

A list of 100 thingsI have recently had the opportunity to be on the Founding Team of a company called Global Mind Mastery. However as part of bringing a new team together on a new venture we were each asked to list the 100 things we want to achieve in our lifetime. Initially the list was relatively easy. Its a personal thing to write down some of your aspirations and dreams but as I got to about 30 it became a challenge. After talking to quite a few other people who complete their list of 100 things it appears there is transitional process people go through. You see the first part of your list is easy as it hits mostly materialistic items of desire like the dream home and great car. Then it might transition to love, marriage, kids and health. Most people then focus on travel and start listing all their desirable destinations around the world. But then most people stop. They never finish their list. It took me weeks to write and re-write this list and its not perfect. But the transition I saw was once you have all you desire you start to think about what you can give back to the world.

I have learned that wanting to be abundant is a great thing because you can give back and help more people. Successful entrepreneurs come to mind and then of all their charities and philanthropic activities. When you write the list yourself I would hope you too would impart on the world to be a better place. Send me your link to your 100Things in the comments below. For now welcome to mine.

The Dear Diary Process unfolding new pages of my life

The Dear Diary Process unfolding new pages of my life

The Dear Diary ProcessA few months ago I was introduced to The Dear Diary Process. As an avid reader and collector of law of attraction books since Rhonda Byrnes, The Secret was launched, I was eager to see what made this one so different. As a kid I had written in diaries outlining everything had happened during the day and on the occasional times where I flip through those old diaries the script bemoans frustrations of school, friends, boredom, and sibling arguments. As I approached high –school my journaling was replaced by yearly day calendars to keep appointments, write down goals and record appointments. So when I read the Dear Diary Process it introduced me to a whole new way of writing in a diary. If I could describe it as a combination of writing as if the following day had already finished setting your intention in advance by visualising each goal and appointment.

“Why write about what you did, it is now history? Why remind yourself of it, especially if it was bad?”

That is probably why all my childhood journal entries are consistently lethargic. I wonder how well I could have achieved at school and friends if I had written each night for the next day?

The Dear Diary Process

So the Dear Diary Process book introduces you to a new way of thinking giving you the tools to do it. The method is not onerous and once you get the hang of the wording, intent and structure it starts to become fun. Fun as when you see your days unfold exactly as you intended the night before.

What I enjoy about the process is the habit of doing it every night as the last thing you do before going to bed and then you have the option to quickly read it when you wake up but then it is advised not to read it again. Already since I have started doing the Dear Diary Process I have recognised some changes. For instance my meetings have had more positive outcomes, opportunities have opened up, financially I have had some great wins in my business and my relationships have improved. Whatever you want in your life you can have just by the simple nightly activity of writing in your Dear Diary book. So grab your copy (ebook or soft copy available) and then send me your testimonial click here. Books available for order on the Global Mind Mastery product website. 

About the Dear Diary Process Author:

Stuart Walter is a Brisbane-based sports psychologist who works with elite athletes to maximise their potential and improve their performance in competitive situations. Drawing on his work with champion athletes, Stuart has developed a simple, powerful and effective process for anyone seeking to maximise their potential in their everyday life. This book is both an instructional manual on the Dear Diary Process and a daily journal for five months of entries to “turn the page to a new you”.

Fears that started from teenage years

Fears that started from teenage years

I was asked recently what are you afraid of? I have been doing lots of personal development this past year and part of the process was identifying with your fears and taking responsibility to overcome them. What am I afraid of? Well I used to have a lot of fears that started from my teenage years.

For a very long time I was afraid of writing, driving and picking up the telephone. Thank goodness I have learnt to mostly to overcome these but its funny how some behavour still lingers.

Fear of Writing

A blogger fear of writing! How funny but when I think of writing I remember so many returned essays at school and in Honours with red marks scribbled over it. I have no idea what happened to the confident 13 year who loved English, writing short stories and poetry who passed with High Distinctions could cower in class 5 years later hiding behind C’s and D’s. It was not so much a failure in spelling but grammer and expression. Thank goodness with blogging I have the freedom without the critique! My failure to write only compounded 4 years later at uni when my supervisor would also return my papers heavily marked with changes and request for re-write that I convinced myself my writing was so appalling everyone was talking about me behind my back. By the time I enrolled in my Masters degree where assignments were a regular occurrence I was paralyzed to start. I paid friends to review my drafts and even found a uni counselor to tutor me. Now many years I am starting to think my writing wasn’t so bad. My grades once again were distinctions.What remains sometimes is the paralyses.

Fear of Driving

When I was 16 I started the milestone of getting my car license. Peer pressure told me to learn a manual license and in absence of family who would teach me to drive I sat for hours with an instructor driving around the suburbs. For one reason or another I racked up 5 failed driving tests. I was on a roll. Each test I would remember the failure of the time before which almost certainly set me up for failure the next time. There was doing a hill start when the lights go green and giving way to the right at the same time fail. Which technically was a tough one to the silly fail of turning right when I didn’t see the No teenage fearsRight turn sign until after half way through the turn. During one early test I had bought myself a box of chocolates to give the instructor to my impending pass only to be curling up in bed eating the box myself. When finally I got awarded the yellow laminated license card I didn’t drive a car again for another 2 years. There were plenty of excuses like, “I have a boyfriend who drives me,” “I don’t have a car” or “I just use public transport.” But when I did finally drive again I had to go back to a lesson or two just to work on that confidence.

Fear of picking up the Phone

Lastly I had a fear of picking up the phone at work. I remember distinctly hiding in the aisles at the Toy Shop where I worked at 14 years old refusing to pick up the phone when it rang. I used to rationalize that I was afraid I could not answer a question. It was a Toy Shop dammit! If I had to call someone I did not know I would write out a script in front me. Even to the point of writing, “Hi my name is Lisa….” When I started my first “real” full time job it was for a start-up company with 3 offices right next to each other. The boss still used the phone intercom system but I could not tell if the ring was an internal ring or external. If I had to make a business phone call I would time it so when my colleague was not in earshot. Likewise when I did a short stint in recruitment in an open plan office it was excruciating as I was afraid people would laugh if they heard me on the phone. I have no idea! where that fear came from. Now that fear only appears if I have to make a cold call. Thank goodness for online businesses I am no longer pressured to do that. I would hate the Tupperware nights where you had to cold call your list when just extended that fear.

All these fears can be overcome. One book I recommend is “Feel the Fear and NO IT Anyway!” Or try hypnosis. With hypnosis, you can program the right thoughts into your mind and eliminate negative beliefs. This doesn’t work for everyone, but it might for you.

So what are your teenage fears that you still carry? I welcome your questions below.

How long will it take to make money? [Lisa Devereaux Prosperity Team FAQ]

How long will it take to make money? [Lisa Devereaux Prosperity Team FAQ]

Everyone wants to make money like now. Like yesterday. So when you are in this business this questions may come up as they they want a ball-park idea of when is it going to work. Some people don’t like my answer and usually I never hear from them again. Or if they decide to dip their toe they usually quit in the first month. So how long will it take to make money online in Internet Marketing? Watch my video below.

Yep. Its really up to you. I was listening to the Think and Grow Rich audios the other day about the sceptics who say they will “See it before, I believe it.” And Paul Hutchings reframed it to say they are almost true. But you need to say “You need to see it before you believe it to see it again.” What does that mean? It means you have to imagine it first and visualise it first, then believe it before it will materialise. 

By using positive visualization as part of your every day life. Picture yourself achieving the goals you want. Picture your life as being better than it is today. Doing this regularly sets your mind on a course for positive results. Positive visualization is scientifically proven to work for most individuals.

If you want your dreams to become reality, make them your goals. Visualizing something makes it easier to break down the components that makeup the scene. If you’re able to dream it, you can make something like it happen. By motivating yourself by making your dreams into tangible goals, you’ll find yourself in a new place in life in no time.how long will it take to make money

One way to help yourself is by making your mind more open. An open mind allows you to fully experience the world in a way that you could not if you were more narrow or closed minded. Be curious. Ask questions and broaden your horizons. If you don’t try to find out about life outside your scope, you are really missing out and only looking at the world through a “bubble.”

So how long will it take to make money? Visualise it, believe it and then do it.

Have an awesome day!
