Two of my aims for this year are to help at least 5000 people overcome their fears and phobias and secondly to raise several thousand pounds for Children's Hospices. I find it absolutely amazing that these hospices need to raise millions of pounds each year to remain open. When i look at the millions, no billions of pounds that are spent on useless projects by successive Governments and these hospices need donations to survive. At a recent conference a cheque was presented to Great Ormond Street and the person who accepted the cheque said that they need in the region of £50 million a year! This world famous children's hospital relies on donations and fund raising.
Now back to freeing the 5000 from their fears and phobias. I know that if we got one hundred people in a room that within the hour 70% would be cured of their phobia or it would be significantly reduced. Isn't that just amazing, and within two hours we could probably make it 80%. The remainder would need a little more in depth work but I could probably help most of them too. Isn't it marvellous that we have these tools available which can achieve that rate of success?
What sort of fears are we talking about - anything that causes you to have an unnatural response to something e.g. water, animals - cats, dogs, birds, fish, etc. etc. , flying, social events, public speaking, fear of success or failure, injections, dentists, anything at all. The list could go on and on. I would like to do this with 500 people at a time, that would really make short work of my 5000 target. Must start looking into it.

I have just returned from four days in Bournemouth at the most fantastic conference. It was organised by marketing 'guru' Andrew Reynolds to raise money for Great Ormond Street - and it did. Over £400,000! It was a sell out with over three and a half thousand people and i'm glad that i played my part in making it a success. When successful people take the time to share their secrets it's a good idea to listen to them and take note. I know, and so do they, that probably 95% of those people will take very little action or probably no action at all. So out of 3500 only 175 will take significant action. I wonder why that is? Could it be their belief systems sabotaging their efforts?
