This is Moe Abdou and with me today is Blair Singer to talk about a bunch of things: life, leader ship, sales and most importantly how to manage the little voice we all deal with. Needless to say, you are inspiring an entire generation with your work, especially with the Little Voices Mastery that we’ll get into in a minute. But before we get into all that, you yourself have a remarkable story and I think it’s appropriate to begin with you sharing with us the feeling that you’ve got when you ultimately made that shift and made that decision to take control of what you’re heading.
I am proud that you say it’s remarkable because some times I think from a person’s own perspective, it doesn’t seem so remarkable. Some times it seems silly, some times it seems happen stance. When you look back on any body’s life, I think most people’s lives are remarkable if you look at it that way as if you were looking at it the way you are interviewing me, most people would see how brilliant they really are.
For me it was as simple as back in 1982 when I had just got a very painful divorce which is not uncommon. Sixty percent of most Americans go through one of those. And I lost a bunch of money, which again is not unusual circumstance. And a friend of mine said to me: Look, maybe you should go take a personal development course. I said, I don’t need anything of that. I think I know everything they know about relationship. When it comes to relationship with women, there’s one rule. What’s that? He said. I said, just don’t trust them. He said, I really think you need to go for a program. And that was my point of view, and I didn’t see there’s anything wrong with that. And he said besides it would help you with your business. And I said, well, it’s basically the same lesson in business. You just don’t ever have a partner because you can’t trust partners either. And he said, just go. I went to this program. It was a 3-day program and somewhere in this program I came to this funny realization that the one thing in common with the money I made and lost and the heartache and all the stuff, the one thing in common was me. For me at that point in my time, that was such a stunning revelation as simply as it was. The message come through when some times you’ve been stripped about everything held to be sacred, you heart, your feelings, your money and all the stuff. The only component that’s in common was me and in the next moment, the hope of vision was placed in front of me that if I would on me, the rest of that stuff outside of me would change. And it gives me this huge level of acceleration that I really could have what I want. I wasn’t a victim of my partner, my ex-wife or the economy at that time and I’ve become as much of a common cost. I think about go after that space between my years that I have been the rest of my life to that point. And every time I did, every time I that worked on my little voice is that every time I do, things get better. Sometimes it’s kind of relax and sometimes it’s not immediate but within 24 hours, 48 hours or a week, some thing magical seems to always take place. What ever it is, it all starts over here.
