Тварь ли я дрожащая или право имею?
Ответ тоже традиционный – раз такой вопрос задаёшь, значит, тварь дрожащая, и прав никаких не имеешь.
Кто право и власть имеет, у того таких вопросов в голову не приходит.

Маркетинг отчаяния [27 Nov 2008|12:49pm]

allmaxdreams
Тёма говорил, что народ на рекламу (нашего тренинга) не ведется

Я:  Народ в условиях кризиса вообще слабо ведется
или ведется, но на что-то другое...
 
В условиях кризиса народ ведется на кризис...
пожалуй, все, что касается того как из него выбраться, или того, как его усугубить и будет пользоваться спросом...
имеем маркетинг отчаяния (marketing of despair): лучше всего на нём, так исторически сложилось зарабатывает медицина и политика

Свойства кризисного сознания:
  • есть внешняя сила, которая во всем виновата
  • нужно переждать
  • спасение есть, но стоит дорого
Друзья, а как вы думаете:
 
  • какие ключевые характеристики признаки кризисного сознания
  • как мыслить, чтобы в кризисе добиться неуспеха?

P.S. На выходе можно получить таблицу из двух колонок: вредные ментальные кризисные ловушки (глюки) и вторая - лекарства от них, чтобы и в условиях кризиса достигать успеха.

Как мыслят неудачники? [12 Aug 2008|07:28pm]

allmaxdreams

Недавно на консультации клиент спросил меня:

- Ну что со мной такого, что у меня часто плохое настроение?

- А во что ты веришь, когда тебе плохо? Как тебе нужно мыслить, чтобы было плохо? На что обращать внимание, что думать?

В
книге известного английского нлпера Майкла Холла "Игры с фреймами"
приводятся убеждения, следование которым автоматически ведет к неуспеху
в жизни - так называемая "внутренняя структура наученной
беспомощности". Вот они:

  1. Персонализация - Все дело во мне. Я дефективный, неадекватный, ничего не стою.
  2. Просачивание - Это влияет на все в жизни и отражается во всем.
  3. Постоянство - Это будет длится вечно, никогда не кончится.
Как вы думаете, а какие убеждения, установки являются противоположными этим?

Из секретов влияния на аудиторию [13 Oct 2007|01:10am]

allmaxdreams
  • Чем проще аудитория, тем проще ее за собой вести
  • Аудитории ждет много ваших вопросов
  • Задавайте любые вопросы: кто из Киева - поднимите руку, кто видел живую обезьяну (вам нужно взять инициативу)
  • Вопрос = присоединение (описание того,что наблюдается здесь и сейчас и может быть использовано, как повод к обращению + само вопрошание + команда (что сделать): я вижу среди нас много женщин - интересно, кто из вас приехал на собственной машине - поднимете руку" - ахинея, конечно, но работает - важна структура!
  • МИНИМУМ 50 raised up hands per training
  • Поднимите руку те, кто согласен с тем, что заработать миллион – это хорошо!
  • Можете посадить в зал несколько своих знакомых, которые будут поднимать руки.
  • ЗАРАНЕЕ ПРИДУМАЙТЕ ПРОВОКАЦИОННЫЕ ВОПРОСЫ!

спасибо Парабеллуму за инфо.

Thank you all for your responses (specifically "madameblake" you rock!) to my last post inquiring about welding. I have more questions...ya'all cool with that?

In my last post I'd mentioned that I had learned that a journeyman welder was 3yrs of schooling. What I hadn't realised, and no one mentioned, is that you have to apprentice for those 3yrs. I've also learnmed that apprenticeships are rarely advertised and usually found out by word of mouth.

Questions:
Does anyone know if there is some sort of preliminary schooling for welding that I'd need to take before embarking on this 3yr deal, without an apprenticeship? Just a community college class or something? It seems odd that I would seek employment for an apprenticeship without any education, ya know? I know-dumb question...but still.

Do anyone have any advise on seeking apprenticeship?

Thank you again........and again.

Hey guys. I'm Jerry...with a J.

I'm in a situation where there's alot that I'm thinking I might want to do but don't actually know how or what my options might be.
Example:lately I've been thinking about getting a welding ticket or saving up money and becoming a welding journeyman and moving to Alberta where they pay $40hr. I've never been motivated by money, but I'm 30yrs old now with no more to show for it than when I was 20yrs old, so I'm reading to aspire. To move up.

Is anyone in the same boat?
I'm in Canada-does anyone know of a career counsillor or if this type of advise giver exists and where I might track said advise giver down? Is there a fee?

Thank you.

new inspiration from barbara sher! [14 Apr 2006|06:47am]

nayad_art
i just finished reading barbara sher's new book, Refuse to Choose! i think it should be required reading for everyone. our society values the specialist, but many people are more drawn to variety and learning a little bit about many things. sher calls such people Scanners (specialists are Divers); the book is about the various different types of Scanner, and how Scanners can manage their many interests and find satisfying careers that don't require specialization. the reason why i think *everyone* should read it - even Divers - is that it would really help to increase people's understanding of the Scanner personality, and i think it would increase society's respect for people who want a broader frame of reference.

Sat since my last post I did an 8 min bathroom clean.

Sunday I did 8 x 20 minute cleaning drills with the
flylady online chat room. It was a case of each of us choosing what
cleaning to do. I did 3 bathroom, 4 dusting/scrubbing in the living
room, and one some of each. Also went food shopping.

yesterday (Monday) I did a 10 min online cleaning drill, and went
for a walk and stretched afterwards.

Now it is Tuesday, and so far I have done 9 x 20 min cleaning drills through the chat room, 1 x 10 mins and 1x 7 min drill (joined that one late:) ). I also two 8 min tidies on my own. Yesterday and today my task has been sorting paperwork. Always includes throwing plenty out:)

a revolution of individuality.


you are an amazing person.
what if everyone knew this. and was told this, and it was true. what if every day you woke up in the morning and were fully aware of how individual you were. what if you weren't clumped into a stereotype; a mass. what if you weren't judged by your outside, but by your mind. or better, what if you weren't judged at all? what if you were not ever in fear of someone hating you because you were different. weren't afraid of being shut out, and not feeling the urge to conform.
well, you are an amazing person. you are an individual. there is something unique about you that no one can take away or clump with someone else. you are not like a star, lost in the sky. you are not like a blade of grass lost in a field. you are not what you are grouped into, you are a self.

how many people don't beleive me? or rather, how many people will look at me and say that i'm an idealist? and how sad is it that to know the inherent worth of each individual in the world and their capacity for good, and self understanding, is pathetic? why would that be brushed off? why is it that in this world, all we have in the end is ourselves, and yet a majority of the world feels that they are nothing without the conformity of others?

you are an amazing being. you are a capable, loving, individual.
you are loved, you can love, you understand. you are not part of a mass, or a stereotype or a clique. what is a mass but a group of individuals who give up their sense of self for the sake of a larger group? but once all in a mass have given up their sense of self, then there is only the idea of a mass. there aren't any individuals to back it.
what is the use of a mass, when you yourself are an amazing person?
you are. there is nothing greater than your individuality.

this is not a weird religious persuasion, this is not a fanatic cult, this is merely an idea. a revolution of individuality. this is realizing that you, as an idividual matter.

we tread near the very fine line of communism vs anarchy, all in the name of welfare, security and individual freedom. i am an acrobat of humanity. you mean the world, to the world. you are an individual, not a mere pawn in the masses.

my week [19 Mar 2006|01:06am]
kbreen
Monday I went through the printed-out index and marked which orgs
had websites, which website corresponded with which orgs, and some
extra details for a couple of othe orgs.
Tuesday I went through a number of the websites I had marked as
favorites, and wrote down the contact details for those which looked
as if they were what I was looking for, for doing a student
placement. Some of them were not specifically mental health sites
some were for homeless people and some were for youth, they might
be very good orgs for me to do a placement with.
I ended up finding out on Wednesday that I will have to pick something
other than mental health for my first placement, so as to save mental
health for the second placement in case I want to work in the mental health area after graduating. (We have to do two different placements). Oh well, at least I now know a bit more about the
current mental health service providers than before, and I can do
youth or homeless people for my first placement.
Also bought DVD recorder which was on a very cheap special. It didn't hook up with my TV though, so a
friend of mine is going to look for a cheap 2nd hand TV, he will get
one for me if there is a cheap one near to where he lives. (I wasn't
confident myself in knowing whether I would be choosing right, if I
were to look for a second-hand one myself.)

Wednesday I finished noting down the phone numbers from relevant
websites. Last week's assignment was to draft a letter requesting
to do a student placement at a given org, so my next step will be to
make any necessary adjustments according to which org it is. I
emailed the teacher of the class related to the work placement to
ask whether it is advisable to speak with the relevant team leader
of an org before sending the application. I went for a walk/jog in
the park (and have stretched afterwards), and emailed my updated
resume to a Human Resources Consultant. Having found out the
requirements of doing placements for two different client groups, I
printed up an index of the homelessness resources very close to me,
so at least that is a start! Did some meditation, and then joined
in an online 15 min kitchen clean - that is to say, I washed a few
dishes which were close at hand, and put some rubbish items in a bag
ready to be thrown out.
Thursday, I went for a quick jog and walk twice. Every little bit
helps! Paid gas bill.
Yesterday (Fri), I did 6 X 8 min tidying sessions.
I also did two 30 min tidying blocks through a fly chat room -
good to do things at the same time as other people, even when it's
online:)
Today (Sat) I did a 15 min tidying block through the chat room, and 8 x 8 min tidy, and done a round of the house throwing out any obvious "smellies and nasties". I had to clear the living room and hallway this afternoon before a student came, and that was where the work from today and yesterday showed: I had a few piles of paper in the hallway, roughly sorted into categories, so I was able to put them straight into the hallway cupboard, still in their piles so I will able to find what I need of those pieces of paper. So that is progress for me! Also did a quick sweep of the porch and stairs outside the front door (including under the doormat), and threw out the junkmail near the letterbox, as there was a prospective student coming to observe the lesson. I was going to mow the front lawn as well, but I ran out of time, due to being caught on the internet lol.

things i've been doing lately [15 Mar 2006|07:42am]

nayad
most of my goals are things i kind of have to do myself, so i haven't been posting much here. for example, i'm the only one who can reduce the amount of clutter and stuff in my house. but here's a bit of this week's to-do list:

- finish painting project in the family room downstairs. i decided that one of the colors down there wasn't quite right, and it's almost entirely replaced with a better color. i also created a pattern of polka dots on one of the walls, and it is SO FABULOUS. it ties all three of the wall colors together.

- put second coat of primer on studio walls. this project is finally getting close to completion, now that my fellas have moved the furniture around so that i can *get to* the walls that still need paint.

- clean house like a madwoman and try not to have nervous breakdown about impending houseguest who will arrive this friday.


more goals o' mine here: nayad's 43 (okay, 39) things.


future goals that may require some help will be: school-related things, since i want to go back and finish my college degree, starting within a couple of years, but there's not much to do about that now; also business help on getting my artwork and creative projects out into the world (in exchange for some money landing in my pockets, ideally!).

I mowed the back lawn on Monday - VERY long grass! - and put the
flyscreen door back (a couple of months ago its screws had pulled out
of their holes.
Friday - returned a book to the library in another suburb.
- dropped off the form for profession development at the music festival
- banked 2 cheques
- picked up some cardboard boxes from the supermarket (for putting
stuff in, to get it off the floor. It will add to my many boxes of
stuff).
- shopped, including eggs and vegemite
- faxed form for withdrawing from course at Chisholm college of
Technical and Further Education, because I will be doing the course at
Swinburne

Saturday I boiled some eggs for the shared lunch at the
yoga centre.
Yesterday (Sunday) I began drafting a letter requesting to undertake a
student placement with the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia, the
placement being for the Diploma of Community Development which I am
doing at Swinburne college of TAFE. This morning I finished off that letter.

A quick survey [27 Nov 2005|02:13pm]

find_happiness
I am in the process of having my life coaching website redone and would like to do some research. I could use your help. Just answer the following questions. No obligation and feel free to email them to me if you don't want to post it here (ally at allymoll dot com). I'm getting very excited about the revamping of my site and feeling like I found a good niche for my business :)

1. What is the one "big dream" you have for your life?

2. Have you acheived it or are you taking steps to start living your dream life?

3. If not, what is stopping you? Are you just putting it off (procrastinating) or do you feel it's an impossible dream?

Thanks everyone!

Second, I just got a letter in the mail and wanted to share :-D

Hi [01 Oct 2005|11:50am]
kbreen
Back in May, I posted a total of 16 goals in this community. The following is in relation to goal #3 (Get my house into reasonable order):
Over the last 5 months I have only had occasional, very brief spurts
of trying to FLY (see www.flylady.net). It is better than nothing though. Right now I am
following the babysteps which have been on the website this month (I
have written them all down before it gets taken off the website - last
year I saw them on the site, they were then called baby boogie, but
then they disappeared from the site before I had even made a start
with them). So last night I shined my sink, and then did my first
ever 2 min hot spot and 5 min room rescue, then 15 min trash collection, then the weekly flyspot (cleaning technology) and the daily zone mission (vacuum), then today(Sat morning) I did another 2 min hot spot, another 5 min room rescue, another 15 min trash collection, and printed out the instructions on how to use a calender.

Navy versus returning to college [21 Sep 2005|11:59pm]

nickalusz
[ mood | contemplative ]

I just dont know what I want to do, or where I want to go from here. (And I think I am going to mostly type this with my eyes closed, cause I am uber tired. So forgive any weird mistakes)

If you havent read the bulletin i posted on myspace, read it hereCollapse )

I am so caught between my two options. I really dont know what to do. Some people say that it really doesnt matter which I pick because I wil be successfull at whatever I try. To some extent I fully agree because I have learned to make the best of whatever situation I find myself in. I cant imagine if this wasnt the case, i am sure I would have been dead many years ago.

All of today I have been thinking that I am probably going to be going back to school. If not this semester than at least next semester. I will live in the Dorm that i lived at before and I will have the most amazing job in the world... well I like it, the pay is less than desirable... but the type of job is my cup of tea. Until I went to my fathers (girlfriends) house. They basically launched a mild attack at me when i said that I was thinking about going back to school. The first thing was that I cant keep changing my mind, and I need to tell people. My (internal) response was "screw you! You are not going to force me to make a decision about my life that a lot of people take their whole life to make" But that convo died fast. It quickly turned to the fact that I was passing an amazing opportunity by. She thinks that "I am too bright to ont go into the services." Because the govmn't is really the only place that can put me into a career where my talents are used to teh best of their ability. I agree to some extent that the govmnt has the connections that will allow me to do whatever I want whereever I want with whatever company I want.

They also kept focusing on the financial aspects of it. It really made me doubt that I would even be able to attend college anymore, even with having people really high up in a variety of depts trying to help me and find a way for me to attend. (that must mean something in terms of m y value there at school, right?) Even with that I dont know if it is feasable. (At the end I said, "If I had zero debt, there is no soubt that I would go back to school" Dad said, "OK, i can rid your debt, but never again." Then I froze and really thought, what do I want to do? even though I had jsut said if I had no debt I would go.) The fact is that there is no security in me going back to school. I will be taking on more debt, but my whole life I have said it is worth it. But now I wonder if i can handle it.

The big issue that was avoided by me when talking with my father is that of my sexual orientation. That is going to play a big role in the decision. Despite the fact I am a beleiver in the whole it is only a part of me philosophy, it gains power here. One of my big things is helping people out, and those that I really relate to for now are people of an LGBT background. If I go to school I would be able to continue this dream. I would be able to date, maybe find my first significant other. (Side note: The interesing question I always find myself asking is what if I had a boyfriend? Would the Navy even be crossing my mind? OR would I be too caught up with him to consider ever leaving? Despite what I used to tell people, i have a new view on life and would actually consider altering my courseof life for someone I cared about to that extent.) Side note over, lol.... I would continue to be able to be an activist and make a difference. I would be able to see the result

One of the things that she kept attacking my generation for was our view on war. She compared us to the hippies and said we would lead to the end of the country (to some extent, lol). She brought up a point when I said I would be able to help people if I stayed at UIUC: I would be helping people everyday if I joined the Navy. I guess it is true, but the fundamental difference would be that I would not be able to see the results of my work. her response: How soon do you expect to see the results? I was speechless. Good point she raised. I would also be able to donate a large portion of my income to charities that I feel are worth it. *hint hint* It would be over in six years. But those six years will probably be full of me wishing I had that someone with me. (Not to say that I couldnt date a girl, I just probably would prefer not too) After that I would basically be set for life, either changing careers completely, or stayingiwhtin my field. I would be able to continue my education and such. Afterwords I would be able to find my friends again, all the while keeping in touch with my current ones. (another side note: There is one friend whom I would want to be available for. Whom I care about and want to just make sure I am never out of reach for. That might keep me away from the military, but I dont know) After the Navy, I would be able to find that special someone, and never have to leave him again. Which brings up the next two points, would staying at Urbana just keep up the false sense of community and security of friends only to be shattered at graduation time? Will i be able to find it once my education is complete, past masters and phd etc.?? The other point is: Are the Navy and being Gay completely exclusive? The more I research it, the less it seems to be that way. But how is it really? That is a gamble I will have to take.

To some extent this is a question between a few opposites, just like the two paths in Frost's poem, but are they all mutualy exclusive?
Future Security vs. Happiness now (Is that even guarenteed? I mean I got to this point for a reason); Security in living situation vs. mental state; and a few others I cant think of at this exact moment.

When I first started College I thought to myself: Even if I have to sit in my room with absolutely no friends, studying 24/7 and getting my grades, in the end it would be worth it because of all i accomplished and waht I could do with my life from then on. Worst.Case.Scenario. Did that happen? NO
This feels sort of like the same thing. If I got in and didnt like it, would it be worth the aloneness in teh long run? Would I even feel alone? Worst.Case.Scenario. Again. But I guess that is all part of the unsureness of life. And the Fear of the unknown.


I hope that I presented this in the most even way possible. I really need ALL the input that I can take. All I ask is that any statement of opinion be backed up. If you HATE the Navy, exaplain why you think it is the worst option FOR ME. I need the critical thought of all of you. What do you think works best for me? Knowing what I have been through, and where I have made it so far.

Thank you all for your help!


EDIT at 12:30am-

I forgot to mention that the Navy is placing me in their Nuclear Power Program... which has tons of advantages. Including an education from MIT. And the opportunity to make six figures outside of the Navy by the time I an 25. It is considered the top 2% of the Navy.

That was a deciding factor on the branch. I dont want to Kill people. This way I will be running a reactor to power a carrier, not killing people...

EDIT at 10:00AM-

This edit is brought upon by a user comment I recieved. It reminded me to put in something I forgot:

This whole ordeal has made me question what my life story is and will be. When I look back on this, as I am telling my story to someone, what will it sound like with each choice? Where will it have taken me? What will I be saying? "Back when I was 19, I had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life..."
