Enough to Retire?

by Pete Bissonette
I’m surprised at the number of people I know personally in their 60s, 70s, and 80s who did not save enough to retire. For whatever reason, their earlier spending and saving were inconsistent, if not detrimental, with being able to retire. Perhaps it was pie-in-the-sky thinking … head-in-the-sand non-thinking … relying on the universe without […]

Do You Yell at Yourself?

by Pete Bissonette
A friend accidentally deleted a file he had not backed up. He screamed at himself, “That was so dumb. Why do I always do this? Why didn’t I save it first?” A couple of days later in a parking lot at a grocery store, I saw someone dramatically slam his car door yelling, “You idiot. […]

Can’t Sleep?

by Pete Bissonette
I sleep so well at night. I think it is because for years and years I would listen to a Paraliminal just before bed. I literally trained my brain to expect that all stress would drain from my day before I fell asleep. I finished every day putting positive and expansive messages into my brain. […]

Establish a Deep Commitment

by Pete Bissonette
A deep commitment to perform at the very best each day means freedom, fulfillment, and, of course, success. The Focus & Concentration Paraliminal is perhaps your best ally, because it helps concentrate your mind, feelings, and actions on what you need to do. It works with your nonconscious to create your vision of the future. […]

by Paul Scheele
Are you doing what matters most to you? I’m not talking about what makes you happy in the moment, but rather, what really drives your life. What gives your life meaning? In a study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology that examines self-reported attitudes toward happiness and meaning, the researchers found a meaningful life […]

Lowering Blood Pressure

by Pete Bissonette
The easiest way to lower your blood pressure is to listen to a Paraliminal every day. Many scientific studies have shown that three or four months of daily meditation lowers the upper blood pressure number (systolic) 4 to 10 points (or mm Hg)—that can be significant. Since using Paraliminals can get you similar results as […]

Getting older?

by Pete Bissonette
I’m surprised at how many of my friends are acting and looking older. It’s almost as if they’re playing the part of an old person. Now, there’s nothing wrong with being old. Heck, I turned 60 a couple of years ago, and I’m no young ‘un. I certainly love all the benefits that come from […]

Cremate Messy Stress

by Pete Bissonette
Sometimes stress is so debilitating you can’t even listen to a Paraliminal. You are in overwhelm, and the last thing you want is a Paraliminal, or if you start it, you are so agitated you can’t finish it. Stress can really mess with your mind and body. So…look for a sweet spot. That moment in […]

Overcome Your Sweet Tooth

by Pete Bissonette
Despite ever growing awareness about the pernicious effects of sugar, ranging from diabetes to obesity, the average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of added sugar each day, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Beyond candy, refined sugars can be found in everything from sodas and peanut butter to barbecue sauce and bread. Could […]

Learn from the Company You Keep

by Pete Bissonette
Do you ever find that you’ve adopted the mannerisms or sayings of someone else – without having realized it? Perhaps it’s a goofy face often exhibited by a coworker seeking to ease a tense situation or a common or quirky phrase of a close friend or loved one. The old adage “You learn from the […]

Un-boring Dates

by Pete Bissonette
A client lamented how boring his dates were a few years back at one of our seminars. I asked if he had tried our Creating Sparks Paraliminal and he said, “I don’t want to jump into bed. I just don’t want boring dates.” I rolled my eyes. Creating sparks is about sparking fun. Maybe a […]

Dissipating Mean-Spiritedness

by Pete Bissonette
When you are mean-spirited to other people, you are automatically mean-spirited toward yourself. And vice versa. It’s a wheel that spins both ways simultaneously. And it cannot get you anywhere. When you find yourself throwing spears of meanness (to yourself or anyone), listen to any Paraliminal. They are all designed to help you experience your […]

Wasting Time

by Pete Bissonette
When you have places to go, things to do, and people to see, it is good to be conscious about your time. I’ve heard from too many clients who can’t get projects at work done on time… or constantly say things like “I’m too tired to do the dishes, I’ll watch TV instead.” “I never […]

Tap Your Imagination for Greater Success

by Pete Bissonette
When you were eight years old, what did you imagine you would become? A veterinarian, musician, or astronaut? Maybe all three? Do you still engage your creative imagination to achieve your goals today? It may be a good indicator of how sharp your memory is. According to a Harvard University study, your ability to create […]

Too Much on Your Mind?

by Pete Bissonette
We pile a lot on our mind and usually without thinking about it. Concerns about the weather and what might happen next. More projects at home than you can possibly do yourself or even afford. A friend is drinking too much. A family member has a chronic health condition. Pressures keep building at work. On […]

How to Break a Habit

by Pete Bissonette
Do you have a habit that is inconsistent with what you want in your life? * Jay loved his job, but he was late for work at least three days a week. He knew this was inconsistent with the peak performer he dreamed to be. * Jacob was a waiter at a top restaurant. His […]

Are Your Food Choices Putting You at Risk?

by Pete Bissonette
A fast-food meal can set off an outsized “inflammatory response” to deal with the unhealthy aspects of the meal. This can be bad news, because it can accelerate the development of vascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. Researchers at the University of Bonn discovered that mice placed for one month on a “Western diet”—high in […]

How to Attract Loving Relationships

by Pete Bissonette
When you want to attract loving relationships such as supportive friends or your ideal partner, you must become the person you want to attract. When you want to improve an existing relationship, you must become your ideal relationship. Because… When you go into the world with feelings of limitation, you will act in ways to […]

Abundant Money

by Pete Bissonette
Times when money was scarce and all of the negative ideas from others could have pierced your psyche. Over time they formed limiting attitudes that became deeply embedded in your neurophysiology, preventing you from having all the money you need. You became enslaved by money instead of the captain of your financial abundance. Sound familiar?

Beat the Craving

by Pete Bissonette

It is easy. The craving disappears. And…you end up feeling great, ready for the rest of your day. Cravings are powerful forces […]

The Secret to Change

by Pete Bissonette
Most issues you have in your life and most things you want to change have to do with beliefs you hold unconsciously. Those beliefs drive your life. If you always show up late, it could be you believe no one will miss you, or it is not really important, or you always get sidetracked. If […]

Don’t Let Fear of Missing Out Derail You

by Pete Bissonette
Social media is a wonderfully easy way to stay connected with the people in your life, yet it has the potential to increase anxiety and lead to a disconnection from oneself. Why? FOMO. Fear of missing out. The Oxford English dictionary defines FOMO as: “Anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening […]

Make the Choice to Be Healthy

by Pete Bissonette

Good-bye Self-Sabotage

by Pete Bissonette
I’ve heard clients say again and again, “I do not set out to deliberately obstruct achieving a goal, but something I do or do not do always gets in the way.” If you recognize yourself in that picture, know you can get to the other side of it by making the Automatic Pilot Paraliminal your […]

How to Focus for Success

by Pete Bissonette
Focusing your thoughts, feelings, and action is required for success. Nothing new there. But how do you do it in the first place? And how do you make it second nature?

How to Increase Your Memory Web

by Pete Bissonette

Calming Anxiety

by Pete Bissonette
Anxiety reminds us that we are human. It’s a natural, anchoring response we all have but don’t want. Just writing about it gives me the willies. Listening to any Paraliminal often calms anxiety right away, but the best, by far, is Anxiety-Free. This Paraliminal has two sessions. Listening to Session A calms anxiety by transforming […]

For Health’s Sake, Be Grateful

by Pete Bissonette
What makes you beam with gratitude? A grandchild, a puppy, success in your career, or a shiny new pair of sneakers?

Yoshimura, Ph.D., […]

Recognize the Value of Your Memories

by Paul Scheele
Memories—good and bad—guide us throughout our lives, often because they remain unresolved. When revisiting Paris 46 years after my first adventure in that glorious city, I stood in the presence of things I’d seen as a child.

Amplify the Power of Your Thoughts

by Paul Scheele

See Yourself as a Doer

by Pete Bissonette
Want to eat healthier? Imagine you already do, suggest researchers Amanda Brouwer and Katie Mosack in a study published in the journal Self & Identity.

How to Be Happy

The Sleep Prescription

Embrace Change at Every Level

by Pete Bissonette
The late William Perry, professor of education at Harvard, used to say, “Whenever someone comes to me for help, I ask myself: What does this person really want, and what will they do to keep from getting it?” Even when we want to adopt a new behavior that’s aligned with our goals, we often generate […]

Follow Rules or Passion?

by Pete Bissonette
Following rules gets you the greater success in schools. But following your passion gets you the greatest success in life. They are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Schools reward perfection.

Be an American Idol

by Pete Bissonette
A few years ago I heard from two of our clients who called us the “American Idol” of transformation.

Just like on the American Idol […]

Are You Eating Enough?

by Pete Bissonette
A friend began showing cognitive issues. What would take only a few minutes last year, began taking a couple of hours this year. Almost anything would overwhelm him.

Are You Worthy of Success?

by Pete Bissonette
Yes! But it is so easy to believe you are not. Negative beliefs, self-talk, patterns, family members, co-workers…it can be tough. That’s what I love about the Paraliminals. They support your wholeness, magnificence, vast capabilities, and great promise on a deep, deep nonconscious level. If you have any doubts whatsoever that you deserve it all, […]

Grim Determination??

by Pete Bissonette
When a kid shoots hoops past sunset to get better, that is not grim determination. When someone gets up two hours early to write a book, that is not grim determination. When I spent days working with raw cherry wood to meticulously build a tongue and groove wall in my home, that was not grim […]

Accelerate Your Success with Daily Reviews

by Pete Bissonette
Inventor and philosopher Buckminster Fuller suggested the importance of living your life in “day-tight” compartments.

Do your days just seem to run together in one unending blur? […]

Undone Projects

by Pete Bissonette
A friend is paralyzed by how many projects he has at home. Nothing ever gets done. He’s always busy, but not on the tasks at the top of his list. He’s easily sidetracked with smaller projects he enjoys, hobbies, the internet, and other distractions. When an extended family member needs something, he’s always there to […]

How to Lose Weight

by Pete Bissonette
Weight is clearly an issue for many people. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, it’s critical you get your nonconscious mind aligned with your intentions.

Rewire Your Brain to Be Happy

by Pete Bissonette
Happiness… It is one of the “unalienable rights” secured for us in the U.S. Declaration of Independence… life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But what does happiness really mean? We’ve been conditioned to believe happiness is something to be pursued, says happiness expert Marci Shimoff. Like a dog chasing after a stick, we chase […]

Enough to Retire?

by Pete Bissonette
I’m surprised at the number of people I know personally in their 60s, 70s, and 80s who did not save enough to retire. For whatever reason, their earlier spending and saving were inconsistent, if not detrimental, with being able to retire. Perhaps it was pie-in-the-sky thinking … head-in-the-sand non-thinking … relying on the universe without […]

Getting older?

by Pete Bissonette

The Hungry, Hungry Brain

Feeling Entitled Can Boost Your Creativity

by Paul Scheele
