A Dedication and Thank You to the Lisching Family

A Dedication and Thank you to the Lisching Family,

Today is the day that marks the passing of Ailie I. Lisching of Illinois.

This is a significant event in my life, because Ailie and her husband Jacob brought into the world some very great and memorable people.

Born to Jacob and Ailie were Becky, Bobbie, Bonnie, Butch and Mark. (Not necessarily in that order)

My life intersected the lives of half of those family members.

When I was ten years old, I moved from Evergreen Park, Illinois to Lake-In-The-Hills, Illinois.

I began the 5th grade at Eastview Elementary in Algonquin, and this is where I met Jacob Jr, “Butch” Lisching. During the school years for the next two years, Butch and I were great friends. You can read about some of our exploits, in the “Legend of Butch Lisching,” located in my article Blogs.

Butch died from a car accident around 1969, and I still feel the loss today. But I feel him always around.

Rebecca, “Becky” Lisching was a graduate of 1963 from Dundee High School. When Butch and I began 7th grade at Dundee Junior High School, we rode on school busses arriving sometimes an hour before school started.

Mr. Marshall, our Principal, decided that rather than have hundreds of wild and crazy teenagers running around the school and hour or so before class, he would have social dancing on the stage in the school auditorium.

We had a juke box set up and all the popular songs by Elvis, Chubby Checker, Bobby Vinton, Bobby Vee, and others would play and we would dance with the girls.

When boys begin 7th grade they are very small compared to 9th grade boys and especially 9th grade girls who are at about 90% of their height.

Usually all the boys, regardless of grade, would line up against the wall, trading punches on each other’s arms, while the girls would dance with each other, praying that their boyfriends would dance with them.

That’s where Becky Lisching and her 9th grade girlfriends came into our lives.

Three of us tiny 7th grade boys, Danny Cervantes, Scott Alloway, and me, would stand near the juke box and Becky would ask one of us to dance a slow dance.

She would then get her 9th grade girlfriends to “cut in” on each of us during the slow dance so each of us would get to dance with several beautiful girls from the 9th grade class.

We were in teenage heaven.

The ploy was cute, and the 9th grade boys, many of them on the football team, would take each of us boys aside and pretend they were offended; however they couldn’t hold back their laughter. It was a lot of fun for all of us, and gave me personal confidence in dancing with beautiful girls.

(My wife or 25 years was a dance instructor for 11 years, before meeting me)

Becky Lisching was the instigator and she was one of the most beautiful, kind, and popular girls of her class.

My next interaction with a Lisching was with Bobbie, who was Butch’s younger sister.

She too, was gorgeous, was loved by everyone in her class, smart and a cheerleader throughout junior high and high school.

One of my best memories was a week after graduating from high school in 1965, Bobbie and here cousin asked me and Tom Heavey, to take them to Lake Geneva Wisconsin. This was on a weeknight, and I forgot to tell my parents I would be out a while.

We had a lot of fun talking and walking around the lake. By the time I got home after dropping everyone off, it was six o-clock in the morning. My parents were worried and thought I drowned in the lake.

Bobbie was nice and I remember the last day I ever saw her. It was August 22, 1966.

I was drafted in the army and was leaving on a train to Fort Campbell, Kentucky to begin Basic Training.

Paul Mills, who was Bobbie’s boyfriend at the time, was drafted the same day. I saw both of them at the train station.

I didn’t know of Bonnie or Mark as they were much younger. I am sure they were just as wonderful as Becky, Bobbie, and Butch.

Just before Ailie died, I had the honor of talking to her on the phone. I wanted to make sure she knew what an impact her wonderful children made on my life.

Judy Lisching, a former family member was kind enough to field my call during a busy day in real-estate to give me Ailie’s telephone number.

Thank you, Ailie and Jacob Lisching. I hope you are able to be around for all of your children, grand children and great grandchildren and witness their lives. I dedicate today and everyday to you and your wonderful family.

Tip 555: Honor Those Who Are Living

Tip #555: Honor Those Who Are Living

I am a very lucky individual. The “luck” is a result of my interactions with other people over my life time.

In my life, I have had the same experiences you have had with other people, some good, and some bad, and some in between.

Those experiences and the lessons I learned lessons as a result of those experiences, helped me enjoy life and achieve many of my goals.

Has it been that way for you?

As time goes on, we are always surprised when we hear that Butch died, or Johnny moved away, and are saddened a bit by this news.

People turn out for wakes and funerals to finally pay their respect, but isn’t that a little late?

My question to you is, why not pay respect and honor those who are living?

How would you feel if an ex-childhood friend tracked you down and said, “Bob, I wanted to track you down so I could thank you for the contributions you made in my life?” Or, Sylvia, back when we were thirteen, you really made me feel good about me.” “Thank you so much.”

Today, I want you to start your day by thinking of someone in the past. Think of someone who inspired you in some way.

Then use the Internet or phone book to track them down.

It is going to make you feel good, and you will honor that person in a way he or she only hears after they have left this life. They may be so inspired by your contact that they pass it along to someone that made a difference in their life. And so on and so on…

Good luck and have a great day!

Be Happy for the Success of Other People

Be Happy for the Success of Other People

Even though this step runs contrary to human nature, celebrating in the failures of others, being genuinely happy in the success of others will pay you greater returns.

When you celebrate in the success of others you open up pathways in your brain that create a direct route for success to flow through.

A psychological law states, “Whatever thoughts you hold in your mind, your body moves in that direction.” If you are thinking about another’s failure, you begin to move in the direction of failure. If you are thinking about another person’s success, your body moves toward success.

This has happened to me countless times in my personal life.

Give it a try and help yourself achieve success by reveling in the success of others.

Success Tip 440: Always Tell the Truth

Success Tip #440 Always Tell the Truth

Always tell the truth!

I recently attended a teleseminar by a major public speaker. It was one of those free teleseminars that many of us are invited to every day.

The surprising thing about this teleseminar is the host said in the beginning that there would be 55 minutes of solid information and then a 5 minute sales pitch at the end.

True to his word, there was exactly 55 minutes of solid information. There was only 5 minutes at the end where the speaker focused on his live one week workshop that he was trying to get me to purchase.

Even though I will not be attending his workshop this year, the speaker left a good feeling about what he has to offer.

I recorded his 55 minute workshop and am using many of the techniques he outlined. They prove to be very valuable.

This is the power of telling the truth. He stated in the beginning that he would have 55 minutes of solid information, and he was true to his word.

How many of you joined a teleseminar only to find that the entire time was spent talking with referrals, or bragging about the information you will receive at the “fee paid” seminar or teleseminar.

My tip for today whether you are selling seminars, teleseminars or golf carts, is, always tell the truth!

Step 7: Become a Mentor in the Field of Your Primary Goal

Step 7: Become a Mentor in the field of your primary goal

Becoming a mentor in the field of your primary goal is one of the most powerful goal achievement techniques ever conceived.

If you ever want to be an expert, teach your expertise to others. Become a mentor and at the same time you will become an expert in the field.

Many years ago, I quit teaching business subjects at Elgin High School in order to become a professional performing musician. I did not have the talent or expertise. I did possess, however a burning desire to succeed in the music business.

A friend of mine name Joe Ornelas, owned a music store in called the “Player’s Bench,” in Crystal Lake Illinois. This is a place were I purchased all of my music and equipment.

Joe said he needed a Guitar Teacher to work with beginning students. I told Joe, I was learning myself and did not feel qualified to teach others.

Joe encouraged me by saying, “but Wayne, all you have to do is stay a week ahead of your students.” “They are beginners too, and they can benefit by your desire to succeed as a musician.” “Your enthusiasm is contagious.”

I thought about something one of my professors, Dr. E. Edward Harris said in my senior year at Northern Illinois University. He said, “If you want be become good at skill, teach it to someone else.”

Dr. Dale McDowell, my ex Boy Scout Leader, elementary school principal and college professor when I was at Northern Illinois University, told me, “Learn as much as you can about the subject that ignites your passion.” “Then go ahead and teach it to others.”

So, I looked my friend Joe Ornelas, the owner of the Players’ Bench in Crystal Lake, Illinois in the eye and said, “I will teach your beginning students.”

I taught beginning students and my expertise on the guitar grew in an exponential way.

I gained more confidence for my performing because I was forced to learn and remember the basics and to be able to teach beginning students these basics.

As you know already, I teach professional hypnotists. I train them to be more effective in their practices and I become better in my practice as a result.

Become a mentor for your primary goal. You will be pleasantly surprised as you head on a course at lightening speed toward your goal.

The Power of Self-hypnosis

The Power of Self-hypnosis

Mike from the UK asks the question, “Is self-hypnosis as effective as being hypnotized by a professional hypnotherapist?”


Thank you, Mike, for asking. This is a very familiar question as more people want to help themselves rather than spend money going to a hypnotist every time a problem comes up. This is what I call the Home Depot Approach.

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Even when I am hypnotizing a group on stage for entertainment, I know that each person is accepting the hypnotic condition in his or her own way. The volunteers on stage don’t realize it but they are creating the hypnotic condition, not me.

Since all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, than all hypnotherapy is actually self-hypnotherapy.

There are things that you may never tell a professional hypnotist or hypnotherapist that you know are pivotal in the problem at hand. If the professional hypnotist or hypnotherapist does not know this valuable information, your hypnotherapy program may not work.

Self-hypnosis is actually more powerful than traditional hypnosis because only you know your personal history. And only you have the answers to all of your problems lurking deep under the surface. Self-hypnosis will help you uncover those problems and help you overcome them in a systematic and efficient way.

I have recently created the Perkins Self-hypnosis Training Program that you can use either online audio mp3s or by listening to audio CDs in the convenience and privacy of your home.

In this program, all of your secrets can remain secrets as you alone learn , create, practice and master, self-hypnosis.

Step 6 Create an Image Book

Step 6 Create an Image Book

Many people need visual goals to relate to in their goal setting programs. Not everyone mind you is visual in this regard however many people are and need visual goals to achieve.

What if I want to earn $100,000 this year? How do I make that a visual goal?

An example of a visual goal in the case of earning $100,000 per year is to create a fake check issuing a check payable for $100,000, and you are the receiver of the funds.

Some people will need to view possessions representing their new found income of $100,000 per year. Those things might include a new automobile or new house. Possessions may include new clothes, boats, or stock certificates.

The best way to keep those things in mind as you are striving toward your $100,000 goal is to cut pictures out of magazines or newspapers, collect them in a picture album or just hang them on your wall at home.

The more pictures representing the fruits of your labor to focus on, the better your mind will work on honing in those goals.

When you collect pictures of your goals and hang them on your wall or you place them in a picture album, you are creating an “image book.”

This image book is a collection of the treasure you want to accumulate within a set period of time, like one year. The image book can represent things you want in shorter than one year periods, but if you allow up to a year to receive the new income level or the trappings representing the one year goal achievement period, you will allow your mind time to accept the idea that you indeed need and deserve these things.

Begin today by cutting out pictures in old magazines and newspapers. Also cut out headlines that represent strong statements in describing you and the things you desire.

You will find over time, that the text headline statements as well as the pictures begin a process in leading you on a direct path to goal achievement.

Step 5: Create a Feeling Goal

Step:5. Create a Feeling Goal

One of the problems of creating goals is that we usually play it “safe.” By safe we try to make our goal, “realistic.”

We get the term “realistic” from bosses, family and friends who really do not want us to achieve success. They will tell you that it is for your own good, when what they are really telling you is that the advice is for “their own good.”

There are two truths that apply to everyone on this planet. Number one, you are born and number two, you are going to die. What we do with our lives in between those truths makes us unique and interesting. Why not begin to change your life this very minute.

In Step 5, I want you to create a goal that is so unbelievable, yet desirable, that you have but one option, you will go after it.

This goal is a “feeling in your gut goal.”

Years ago, I created a “mission statement.” It reads, “My mission in life is to help you achieve your mission in life.”

This mission statement over the last 7 years, has lead me to unbelievable situations and incredible goal achievement in other areas of my life. It all came out of a “gut feeling” goal.

There is a psychological principle that states,” When your will and your imagination are in conflict, your imagination always wins out.”

Our will is related to our realistic goals and our imagination is tied to our gut level goals or feelings.

Create a gut level goal for yourself. Make it big. I want you to dream bigger than you ever though you could dream and imagine yourself living with your goal achievement.

When you reach your goal you may change the world and you most certainly will change your life.

Reflect on the People Who are Holding You Back from Success

Reflect on the People Who are Holding You Back from Success

Once you have written down who is holding you back from success, I want you to reflect on these people and ask yourself the following questions.

Why do I want ________to keep me from achieving my goal?

What purpose does it serve to allow _____and _____to keep me from being happy and achieving success?

Can I be happy by successfully achieving my goal in spite of what _______or _____thinks of me?

Read over your questions and answers and study them for the next several days. Each day as you review your goals, make sure you reflect on who may be holding you back, reflect on them for a moment and then charge ahead toward success!

Always remember, that only you allow others to control your health, wealth and happiness. Are you going to allow others to control your life, or have you reached the time where you are going to take charge and control your life?

You only have one life to live. You have the power to decide how you want to live the rest of your life. If you succeed, you may lose some of your friends and relatives. However, with your success be prepared to change other people’s lives. When you change your life, you cannot help but change others as well.
