And secondly, next month our crazy but fit web developer Doug Platts will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for the Amani Children's Home in Tanzania and the Make A Wish Foundation. The Amani Children's Home provides food, education, counseling and aims to street children who are homeless or orphaned and aims to reunite children with relatives.
At 19,336 feet Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak. Doug's hike will take 5 days to reach the summit, and 2 days for the descent. You can read more about Doug's efforts and the Amani Children's home here

So that's my pleasant tasks completed - read on and enjoy because your mind is your future.
When we talk about knowing ourselves it can sound a bit vague and abstract but this session really focuses on specifics. To know patterns in psychology is to know ourselves. Once you know yourself you can being to know what you are truly capable of regardless of self deception. We all use justifications and rationalizations to 'excuse' ourselves from doing what we really should be doing. Know yourself pulls no punches - it considers how behavior becomes automated and habitual very quickly, just how we deceive ourselves and how to get the most out of ourselves. Know Yourself is designed to be a practical tool for self understanding.
Resisting the bully
Being bullied is often, believe it or not, a result of someone else sizing you up and understanding your motivations. Once someone figures out what is important to you they then, unfortunately know how to manipulate you. Bullies often pray on conscientious hard workers. The bully may attack the quality of the work of the victim because they know that is what is most important to them. Ironically enough a bully may know you better than you know yourself in some instances. In Cope With Being Bullied we look at the different forms of bullying and how to diminish the emotional impact, replacing fear with calmness and strength.
Get the satisfaction of completing the task
And finally, we have Finish What You Start. So often the excitement of a new project is mainly connected to its newness. Once the hubbub of beginning something dies down we are left with the fact that we've actually got to do it. Of course if we don't really know ourselves that well we may attribute quitting early to all kinds of other outside influences: 'I decided the weather wasn't good enough, other people weren't pulling their weight' and so on. How many people start writing their book, learning that musical instrument or even tidying their desk only to quit before completion? Finish What You Start aims to keep the motivation level going throughout
New Audio Insight will be all about why you dream and how dreams are connected to hypnosis. It will give you an astonishing insight into the way you work, and why being in control of your own psychology is so important.
