Kara Dioguardi, a successful woman

I recently came across an interview on youtube, which have inspired me.

kara-dioguardiI wanted to share this interview with you and tell you why I like it so much.

Kara Dioguardi, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, music publisher, A&R executive, composer. Many of you may remember her from American Idol, as one of the judges back in 2009 and 2010. She came out of nowhere and received a series of backlash and criticism while she was on the show. Nobody knew who she was and she constantly had to prove herself not only to the judges but to America. If she was introduced properly, maybe she could have avoided harsh criticism and judgment. But unfortunately she had a hard way to gain respect and recognition for her hard work while on the show. Ultimately, she found a way to fit in with the judges. She didn’t give up, she knew she was great. The greatness wasn’t just in her head, it was also in her previous work, which she did before becoming a judge on American Idol.

What I like about her in this interview with Howard Stern is that she doesn’t say a single negative word about anyone, even though Stern is trying to have her “shed some light” on certain situations and specific people. And indeed, all she does is shed light. She always has something positive to say about every person she worked with. She doesn’t blame anyone, even if the situations were unjust and troubling. At the end of the day she says, she learned a lot.

I am also amazed at how humble she is. How she never chased fame or recognition, even though she had a great voice and is an excellent song writer. She is a smart business woman, and she knows how good she is without bragging about it.

At the end of the interview she says, the best thing she did in her life was taking care of her dying mother for six years. Not too many people could do that, especially running around “chasing success.”

Here are some affirmations that I could extricate from the success story of this woman, which you could implement in your success motivation script for self-hypnosis:

I am positive and full of integrity

I aim for the right things in my life, those that are good for me and everyone around me

I respect myself , I respect my work

I am hard working

I succeed every day

I take responsibility for all of my actions

I connect with people and see good in all people

I am a professional

I face my fears

My actions speak my professionalism and integrity

Let me know what you like about Kara Dioguardi!

Crisis Management and Hypnosis

Every nation, every society, every human – every form of life at once ( at least) is met with crisis. How you respond to it and what choices you make in the aftermath – is what determines your success.

What is crisis? “Crisis is any event that is, or expected to lead to, an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, community or whole society. Crises are deemed to be negative changes in the security, economic, political, societal or environmental affairs, especially when they occur abruptly, with little or no warning.” ( Wikipedia)

In personal crisis, it is common to witness certain external systems, like business partnerships, marriage, relationships, work place  and etc– crashing; and certain personal beliefs about relationships, road to success, survival, parenting, and simply how the world works or should work – also crashing as they no longer provide the desired result. When crisis comes, it shakes up your external modules and mental model of the world.

During such difficult times people tend to fall into depression and despair, everything they believed in and found stable or secure has come to a halt.  Questions arise that can’t be answered right away. It is also common for people to start making fast decisions, which are usually based on fear, insecurity and desperation. Any decision made from such negative place results in a prolonged crisis or simply another dreadful circumstance.

Instead, it is wise to take advantage of the crisis and begin to examine your life and your personal model of the world. It’s ok to doubt this model. It’s OK to crash it. In fact, it has already begun to crash, on its own, hence the crisis.

When crisis comes, literally, PAUSE. Put your panic, your fears and instability on hold.

When I work with clients who deal with critical situations life, I guide them to meditate deeply and help them draw upon their inner recourses to attain internal piece and alignment despite the dreadful circumstances. From that place of strength and power you can begin to make better and bolder decisions, which will help you rise out of ashes of crisis.

You will be surprised how the new opportunity maybe knocking at the back door. The solution to problem maybe lingering in the distant corner of your beautiful mind.
