Self Analysis

In order to make positive and sustainable changes in our lives we must first understand who we are right now. The following process is a simple one and all it requires is for you to write.

To start uncovering ‘you’, all you need to do is write about the area of your life you want to understand or improve. For example, if you desire to understand the  relationships in your life, you would write about relationships. If it is health write about health. Spend 10 minutes of focused writing morning and afternoon for 2 days about the topic you want to work on, or on any topic that comes to mind.

At the end, review what you have written, because the words you have captured contain your values, beliefs, and blockers that you can work on.

What is your focus?

You may have just read the blog on focus, if you did you might also like to think through the statements below and flex your analysis muscles.

What is the focus for each of these statements, is the focus on what you do want or on what you don’t want?

Sensory Awareness 

Sensory awareness is being able to read the subtle physiological changes our bodies make when we think or feel certain things. As things change internally, small changes can occur externally that indicate something has changed in what a person is thinking. There are 5 areas where visible shifts may occur to indicate an internal change that we talked about in a previous Mastermind session, these include changes in breathing, changes in lip size, changes in the eyes, changes to skin colour and its tone.

The Memory Palace or Roman Room

Today’s Mastermind topic is on memory once again, this time though we are going to use the classic Roman Room method. A method that Roman senators would use to recount statistics of their city to aid in their bid for support from the senate. Through the ability to recount so much information on their citizens fears and desires, senators were able to sway the others to their cause.
The strategy is quite a simple one and to make it easier we will be relying on your existing memory, not your creativity to create a fantastical, complex castle to store your memories.

We will be using a house or apartment you use to live in, a location you walked into every day and every night. A place you can remember like the back of your hand. 

To use this strategy you recall your old home and every fixed item that was in that home. It is those fixed items you will ‘peg’ things you want to remember, too.

If you need to remember to call the gas company, you might imagine your gas cooker leaking gas, noticing the smell of gas as you walk into your home. 

Or if you need to call a friend you might imagine them sitting on your couch as you look around the room in your minds eye.

When you want to remember key pieces of information you place meaning full images on or in those fixed sections of your old home. And as you take a virtual tour of your ‘roman room’ you notice each of those things your placed on fixed items.

Then once you have taken action on the thing you want to remember you clear the slate and leave your self with only the fixed items in that house.

And that is the short version of a very effective memory strategy.

What the VAK did you say?

This activity is to help you hone your ability to identify what representational system a person might be. You will be listening for and recording any visual (V), Auditory (A), Kinaesthetic (K) and Auditory Digital (Ad) language you hear a person use over the phone.

To complete this activity, have a note pad and pen next to the phone and with your next phone call complete the following steps:

– Write down the person’s name

– Write down any key words the person uses. EG. Dude, cool, fun, great etc

– Write down any VAKAd language that the person uses

The intention with this activity is to get you looking for the different indicators that are present in any one phone conversation; this will hone your ability to have good attention to detail. Practice this process every time you are Woking the phones until you begin to hear more and more. You should get to a point where you start to hear the key words and phrases and not need to write them down, then you will know you have reached the next level.

Preferred Representational System Questions

I have already talked about Preferred Representational Systems in a previous blog, and we have covered it to death in the face to face mastermind sessions.

What has not gone up is the test we did to figure out your preferred rep system. So take a moment to fill in the activity below and I’ll shoot you back a email with an indication of what your preferred rep system is.
