Energy: Power at Hand 10 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Energy is defined as the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. From a context (read more here) of the world of transformation, it certainly can used to distinguish whether one is operating with integrity where energy is abundant. In my first Self Expression and Leadership Program (read more here), I invented a future: “Love expressed through Leadership, Inspiration, Energy and Enthusiasm” It took 3 months for me, to transform myself into this future, using an invented community project as ...

Friends: A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection 9 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
How do ‘friends’ and the world of transformation correlate or interact? Perhaps the key is to distinguish “the bond of mutual affection” that binds the friendship first? When I started my personal development in October 1993 with the Landmark Forum (see videos here). As with all the courses I have undertaken, there is plenty of opportunities for participants to get up on the microphone and SHARE! Over the years, I have been amazed about the kind of friendships available on this planet ...

Air: Express Publicly 7 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
This ‘happiness card’ may allude to ‘that which you breathe’ and ‘being grateful’ for that and from a transformational context (read more here) , perhaps I will share how AIRING one’s thoughts and feelings allows for contribution from others. In my current Wisdom Unlimited Course, we have inquired into the difference between monologue (in your head) and dialogue (out loud with others). When one “airs” ones thoughts, it opens up new worlds. We have noticed that all monologues make no difference ...

Future: Something is going to happen 6 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Aaah this is certainly powerfully addressed in many of Landmark Worldwide’s personal development courses. I participated in what Landmark calls the “curriculum for living”. It consists of 4 courses: ·       The Landmark Forum ·       The Forum “In Action” Seminar program ·       The Advanced Course ·       The Self Expression and Leadership Program (SELP) For myself, having dealt with my PAST in the Landmark Forum and created a FUTURE in the Advanced Course, I invented a future called “Love expressed through Leadership, Inspiration, Energy and Enthusiasm!” (read ...

Smile: An Indication of Happiness 5 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Below is one of my favourite quotes introduced to me through Landmark Worldwide, which I assert, will have you consider a smile, at the very least?! J “True Joy In Life” “This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the ...

Freedom: The Power to Be as One Wants 4 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
I started my personal development in October 1993 starting with the Landmark Forum. It started on Friday morning and ended on Tuesday Evening. During the course, we looked at you of life from many points of view (see syllabus) and sure my big one was the discovery that I thought I was unlovable,(see story here). What were definitely clear for me, as a declared and happy result were a new sense of SELF and a FREEDOM to BE! For myself, I ...

Laughter: An Expression of Amusement 8 0f 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Coming for the context (read more here) of transformation and the word Laughter, I can share that one of the common phrases shared around Landmark graduates is to consider that if one can’t see the humour in it, then consider one is ‘on it’! In other words, one is stuck with a fixed pint of view. One of the biggest ‘takeaways’ from the Landmark Forum that many people always remember, is the distinction Landmark calls Rackets: A way of ‘doing or having’ ...

Visualize: Form a mental image 3 of 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
This is a great exercise to access happiness, as it happens inside your head! Creativity at the ready, one can really lift one’s senses to new heights of joy if one’s imagination is loving and joyful. I remember; when Juan Antonio Samaranch announced that the winner is “Sydney” for hosting the 2000 Olympic Games, I visualized a large fire show for the ceremony. I had been fire breathing since 1989, so I had already distinguished how spectacular flames can be, when ...

So here is a POSITIVE STORY that happened just now with the SOURCE of the following: Happiness Oracle Cards by Cheryle Teni #ITSATUESDAY: 3 December 2019. Charles Crawshaw: I called Cheryl Teni today, requesting permission for the following: Charles: “May I take EVERY ONE of your 65 HAPPINESS CARDS as a WORD INQUIRY, and write a blog on each? I will be coming from my INITIATIVE of “GENERATING”, (read more here). “For each of the 65 cards, I will bring the following context (read more ...

Precious: Of Great Value 1 of 64

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
As mentioned in my last bog, I am nearing the end of this year’s Wisdom Course Unlimited here in Australia where I took on an inquiry into the transformation word: Generating. What has been remarkable about this tool and practice (we have an online gathering every Monday night for 2 hours) is that I have discovered that there have been moments where I have ‘faltered’ in knowing what to do. It is WHEN this distinction happens; I suddenly look at ‘GENERATING ...

Initiative: The Ability to Assess and Start Things Independently 36 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
I am coming up to my fifth and final weekend of my second Wisdom Unlimited Course run down here in Australia. I have been diligent in getting the past 35 blogs of words/phrases that access transformation onto paper/screen. What I have noticed is that it has all come out from the ‘INITIATIVE’ we were all invited to take on back in Weekend 3 on August 16 – 18. I could have chosen any one of the 35 written below and ...

Integrity: Being Whole and Undivided 35 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
I was participating in “Integrity: The Bottom Line” run by landmarkworldwide.com from August to October 1999. I will never forget the course as I was FULLY ENGAGED with the Sydney Olympic Committee,(SOCOG). They had called me in and asked whether I could create a bushfire for the opening ceremony. They also requested I stop my annual fire show to commemorate the opening ceremony on 15 September 2000. I was furious. I had started the Ceasefire Project on the 15th September 1995 at the ...

Registration: Sign Here! 34 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Registration: Put information, especially your name, into an official list or record With this blog series of 36 “words/phrases” that can access self-transformation, it may surprise you, (as it did with me), that the act of registration can be considered an act of transformation. Firstly, one needs to be ENROLLED in the possibility such that you are touched, moved and inspired by the possibility. If this is the case and a true possibility has arisen, then the next logical step is to ...

Generosity: A Clearing for Transformation 33 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
It is funny whenever I read or hear the words “Generosity”, I think of TIME and MONEY! Where did that come from? Why say these words? Well, from my experiences in life, I am clear that whenever someone is willing to give their time (or money) to me, I really appreciate their generosity. Given my “happily busy” life, I appreciate whenever someone is willing to spend time with me for a common pursuit or passion. I value time and sure, I ...

Making a Difference: YIPPEE! 32 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
As mentioned previously, I am in my consecutive Wisdom Unlimited program run by Landmark Worldwide. Dwelling in the world of ONTOLOGY; “The Study of Being” and undertaking self-transformation, I have much to contribute, having learned that Making a Difference is one of the tenets of transformation itself. I remember being in the inquiry of what is to be human and we discussed/considered/noted that perhaps most humans want to make a difference. We shared about our heroes and heroines in the world ...

Content is King and a Multilingual Blogger is Emperor

by Jan Olof Nilsson Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education
As a multilingual blogger, you should focus on one language A multilingual blogger probably thinks that the language skills have to be used in every single moment. Nothing can be more wrong! It's a gift in life to know various languages, but you need to know how to take advantage of this golden nugget. With language skills come communication, and the more people you can communicate with, the bigger your circle will be of people you interact with.  When starting my blog in early ...

Breakthrough: A Sudden Discovery 31 0f 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
I remember how we used to describe the methodology of how the Landmark Forum works is similar to what scientists do to cause a breakthrough. They look at their subject from various points of view and then, all of a sudden, something they never saw coming occurs and a breakthrough is declared by the scientists. It is the same methodology used in the Landmark Forum. For the 3 days and one evening syllabus, these are the inquiry points: ·       Already Always ...

Existence: State of Living 30 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Many of you know I am participating in my second consecutive Wisdom Unlimited course run by Landmark Worldwide down here in Australia. During the course, 36 words/phrases were shared, where we could choose any one of them and take on as an initiative over the months of the course to inquire; Existence is one such word. Looking from my life and where existence has shown up in a transformative way, I can see that that firstly I had to look at ...

Unreasonable Request: Magic Happens 29 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
As I am coming to the end of my blogs on 36 phrases that can access transformation, I note that there was a similar inquiry into transformation with the phrase “Being Unreasonable” where indeed I do share an unreasonable request that had me make international news in the name of World Peace! I have learned the nature about unreasonable requests. It is that the outcome comes in one of three possible responses:      YES      NO      COUNTER OFFER Unreasonable: Beyond the ...

Distinguishing: Insights that impact 28 of 36

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Distinguishing: Insights that impact 28 of 36 Having started my personal development with Landmark Worldwide in October 1993, and participated in many of their programs for over 10 years, the common saying about their education is that it is ‘distinction based’ training. Their education is all about discoveries about oneself and one’s relationships with others, so perhaps never with the answers yet always in the inquiry, whatever one gets for themselves is entirely up to oneself. All one has to do ...
