Sample Questions & Answers For Interviews
Q: Can you summarize the Creative Process?
A: 1. Plant the seed. Plant an intention, an idea, an imagination. 2. Cultivate. Get rid of negative thoughts (what you don’t want). Strength positive thoughts (what you do want). 3. Harvest. Pay attention to what’s working. Gather proof, find evidence of what you are creating. Attention and appreciation creates even more.
Q: How can thoughts change the conditions of one’s life?
A: Thought precedes form and experience. Thought is cause. Conditions are effect. Change the thought and it launches creativity in a new direction. You get to determine and direct the direction.
Q: What about conditions beyond one’s control, like the economy, job circumstances, etc.?
A: We determine and choose how we experience anything. Thought creates our own experience in it and thought can change it. Thought creates “what is” as well as “what can be.” Thought created the economy we experience today. Thought can also creative a different economy tomorrow.
The question is: where are you putting your attention? Are you letting news stories present evidence on how everything’s falling apart? Or are you finding your own evidence of what’s working? If your current circumstances aren’t what you want, do you give up or do you find a light at the end of the tunnel and move toward it?
No matter “what is,” where you put your attention next will set the course of what will become. Each of us has more power than we think to shift the direction, and the outcome, in our world.
Q: What about one who is in dire straits right now? What is their best and first course of action?
A: Actually, action is not the first course. Thinking is. Thought precedes—and creates—everything in form and experience. So the first thing is to stop thinking that your situation is “dire” and hopeless. Negative thinking creates more of the same. To experience something better, you must think something better. You have to shift from the energy of hopelessness and powerless into possibilities and confidence.
Focus on what you have instead of what you lack. Find something to be grateful for or to appreciate, because gratitude and suffering can’t co-exist. It’s possible see options from this better vantage point, even if it is only a little better. Then, you can reinforce those thoughts with action, by finding a way to give because one who gives has plenty to share.
Most people will agree that if they can get to a place of gratitude and giving, that’s much better than feeling desperate or hopeless. And it’s clear that something better is possible from a state of gratitude and the actions of giving than was possible in the immovable grip of hopelessness.
Q: What are the Five Steps mentioned in the subtitle of your book?
A: Five Steps is a methodical way to change and upgrade your thoughts instantly. It’s actually called Five Step Treatment and the word treatment explains a bit of what it is and why to do it. Just as you’d see a medical doctor to “treat” a problem, you “treat” yourself, or more specifically, your thoughts. The purpose is to create a mindset and vibration of energy that corresponds with what you desire.
Often, when we want change, we focus on the thing we don’t want, the thing we want to eradicate or get relief from. This only creates more of what you don’t want. Shifting your attention what you do want, getting the feeling of having it (rather than being needy of it or lacking it), sets a creative process in motion to produce it.
The Five Step Treatment is a technique of self-thought or self-talk that leads to a realization that what you really want is already available. If you want peace of mind, you already have access to it. If you want love, you just need to take a moment to connect with the love that pours through you. The Five Steps can become a very powerful tool for people who want change and are willing to instantly shift their thoughts away from what seems lacking and into a state of having. The simplest description of the steps: 1) Open. Recognize infinite possibilities, 2) Connect. Affirm partnership with Life. 3) Receive. Say Yes Now. 4) Give. Be grateful. 5) Share. Let it be so.
Q: What motivates you?
A: Like many, I look at the world today and see countless ways it can be better. Since I’ve discovered these principles and tools (and by the way the core ideas are not my own, the way I present them is), I have made my life (which was actually very good by all measures before) better in every way. My life now is so beyond what I ever imagined it could be (and I am known to imagine pretty big). It is my nature to show others how to live their best life, their way.
I work with individuals to create the life of their dreams. I work with businesses to do business better and contribute more. This is my part in helping to create a better world.
Q: How does your book apply to the business world?
My experience in business makes me very passionate about the possibilities for corporations and world leaders. My book is for companies and organizations of all kinds who know it’s possible to be better, do better and contribute more.
I’ve worked with CEOs who think better and see the amazing potential in human creativity—what I call the “ultimate renewable resource.” In fact, I started my career in the advertising business, where it was well-known that “the inventory goes down the elevator each night” (according to Fairfax Cone, founder of one of the largest ad agencies in the world). I’ve always known that that the greatest resource is intelligence and creativity.
I want to help people create something better and companies become better because it creates a better world for everyone. This is what motivates, and fulfills, me.
Q: You talk about miracles. What can you say about miracles?
A: First, I like to establish what a miracle is. It’s not the displacement of physical laws, but rather the proof of higher, invisible laws. In simpler terms, miracles are what we call anything that is far beyond what we expect or think is possible. Miracles are relative; they’re what we say they are.
If you’ve been trying to conceive a child without any success and one day you’re pregnant, you might call it a miracle. If you’re a dancer competing for one spot against a thousand other dancers, you might say it’s a miracle when you get the position. But Einstein said you can live as though nothing is a miracle or as if everything is a miracle.
How many people expect daily miracles? Many of my own miracles took place during the years in which my mother lived with Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, my book begins and ends with two miracle stories about this. I chose a different way to think about this disease. I won’t say it’s easy to look for a miracle when your own mother doesn’t recognize you. It’s not easy to look beyond the condition of a disease. But it’s possible. I expected miracles and that’s what I experienced.
Q: You advise people to dream bigger? What’s your bigger dream?
A: Well, I think big and have an amazing capacity to generate lots of possibility thinking. One of my dreams includes teaching children and young people a different way of thinking, to create their own world.
I imagine every human being feeling appreciated. I imagine everyone discovering their true nature and personal genius. I can see our leaders creating success for everyone. My vision is a world fueled by generosity and kindness and respect. As John Lennon sang, “you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you will join us. And the world will live as one.” I’m not a dreamer. I’m a creator. And I know everyone else is a creator too. By the way, what’s your dream?
