Got an accent?

You simply have to watch this video to realise that we all have an accent – the only question is which one?!?!

Engineer Explains The Economy?

Today’s post is from a new book I’m reading… It’s so valuable, I’m keeping the title secret for my most trusted clients – to make sure they stay ahead of their competitors… But there was something in it I wanted to share with you since we’ve been focusing on engineers this year, making sure they develop their business skills and aptitudes to succeed in their businesses and/or careers. It’s about an engineer, Bill Phillips who came up with the MONIAC (Monetary National Income Analogue Computer) also known as the Phillips Hydraulic Computer and the Financephalograph, in 1949.

It models the national economic processes of the United Kingdom, while Phillips was a student at the London School of Economics (LSE), The MONIAC was an analogue computer which used fluidic logic to model the workings of an economy. The MONIAC name may have been suggested by an association of money and ENIAC, an early electronic digital computer.

The reason I’m posting this is to show you that as a professional engineer, you need to get access to stuff like this to realise that your talents, skills, abilities and aptitudes have their use in a wide variety of situations. As The Exponential Growth Strategist, that’s what I do for my clients – I teach them to THINK DIFFERENTLY. I’ve designed special courses just for engineers to make sure they learn how to leverage their superior analytical skills to their advantage in their business, projects and/or careers.

Here is the first video that introduces the Moniac.

This second video explains it in more detail…

The Career Making Move: The Leap Of Faith

Every once in a while, an opportunity, a chance to make a big decision that can and will alter your destiny comes around. It requires guts, courage and belief in yourself to take it. We’ve all been there.. Anthony Robbins states that “it is in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped.” I actually think the reverse is even more true, telling and frequent: “It is in our moments of INdecision that our dreams are destroyed.”

Watch this video and get inspired by taking that leap of faith that will help you cross the chasm to your new destiny, the life you want to be living. In your career, you will face crossroads and challenges that will force you to take a leap of faith. Don’t forget… when you get to the fork in the road… take it!

The Career Making Move: The Leap Of Faith

In our Professional Mastery Programs, we teach professionals and executives how to conquer their fears and apprehensions with practical strategies that work within their environment and context so they can start to make career-making moves and avoid the career limiting moves that often paralyse even the most brilliant technical geniuses.

Slide Rule Thinking In The Internet Age

I’ve been presenting a special 3-hour workshop called Slide Rule Thinking In The Internet Age for Australian Engineers. It’s a collaborative effort with Engineering Education Australia, a wholly owned division of Engineers Australia, the governing body for the engineering profession. The best part of it is exposing my Exponential Mindset to such a smart, educated and analytical audience of specialists and experts who really know their stuff – you’ll see a few blog posts in the next few weeks that reflect the fun we’ve been having.

One of the concepts of an Exponential Mindset is having fun doing out-of-the-ordinary things… Like sharing good jokes that make use laugh at ourselves so we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Stan Lawrence, a Mechanical Engineer at Verve Energy sent me the video below that Gavin Altus, Executive Manager Development at Engineering Education Australia also shared with me…

I can’t share with you all the bonuses and gifts included in the Slide Rule Thinking event, but this one was just too good to resist!

Enjoy it as you laugh at us – we don’t mind, after all we’re proud to be engineers!

Failure is a sign you’re stretching beyond your comfort zone

This short 1-minute YouTube video says it all. Failure is a sign you’re stretching beyond your comfort zone and expanding what I call your Sphere of Influence – a concept I explain in my Entrepreneur’s Success Book. Anyway, for today and right now, I just want you to take 1 minute out of your busy day and be amazed at all the super successful people and how they failed before they hit the big time. It’s truly inspiring.

Together Everyone Achieves More

We all know the saying that Together Everyone Achieves More. But something tells me this group of employees somehow missed the point.

This hilarious video was submitted by Andrew Powell of Montreal Canada.

Great Footy Quotes

At the recent inaugural edition of Unleash The Speaker Within event, we covered the importance of using humour to communicate with your audience. Within the program curriculum, we supplied several supporting documentation to assist people in developing a wide repertoire of content so they can cherry pick the best ones. Today’s blog post will be added to one of those documents, but I thought I would share it with you – it’s from Mario Kalogiannis, featured in his final presentation below. He is a partner at the Epago Group.

Unleash The Speaker Within Presentation: David Conroy

David Conroy is the founding Managing Director of The Lone Drainer And Pronto, Sydney’s Premier Plumbing Services. His presentation is a call to action that he came up with on-the-fly. Talk about improvisation – this was his first and ONLY take. Can you imagine having the confidence and courage to do that LIVE on YouTube?!? I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of guy I want taking care of my plumbing problems!

Unleash The Speaker Within Presentation: Gerard Spriet

At Unleash The Speaker Within, we had several ‘spotlight’ sessions where participants presented to the group. This series of presentations shows what people can do. You should know the rules they had to work with. NO NOTES, final presentation is to be +/- 3 minutes (as long as the core message is delivered). The message can be anything they want to use in their conversation with a client or prospect. Oh yeah, no double takes and no editing – unless there was a technical glitch. They knew this was going to go live on YouTube. Sound easy? Give it a go and see how it feels…

The first presentation is Gerard Spriet of Geelong’s Gym – does he look fabulous or what?!?! His story is inspiring – do unto others as you would want done unto you + the Law Of Attraction will reward you in ways you could never expect!
