A recipe for Wealthy Thinking

A recipe for wealthy thinking Jonathan Chase Hypnotist

I was once called the gordon Ramsay of Personal Development and Hypnosis, which is great for me because Gordon Ramsay is something of a hero of mine.

We have a great deal in common – well stretch your imagination. Thanks to physical injury he couldn’t carry on playing professional football so got up and got on as a professional chef.

True I was never a professional footballer, in fact at school I sucked at sports even though I loved kicking a football about.

I was a clumsy kid though and was never picked for teams, you know that kid that always gets left until last. I can’t say I was bullied,  but always being left till last made me feel different, not always in a good way.

One Day changed everything

Then one day I won a competition from my weekly comic, the prize was… A leather bound football, a proper football. Oh joy of joys.

The football was a coveted item and *I* had it, it was mine.

Then everyone wanted to play with MY ball and be on MY team. I became the picker!

There was LESSON No 1 -The Picker has ALL the power, you’re the team Manager, you pick the players, you don’t get left behind.

If you can’t be the Player then be the best Manager or Chef or Edutainer you can be.

The role of a chef and the role of an Edutainer showing people how to change their mindsets and attitudes isn’t all that different in principal.

You take the few ingredients the store of life has delivered to your subconscious larder. You figure out how best to use the utensils and equipment your body has kicking around, and these can be very different, and bring the lot together to produce not only sustenance but a satisfying and fulfilling repast.

And just like a wedding breakfast or Sunday lunch, this creates an experience and it’s the experience we remember.

Wealth is also like a meal, it isn’t just the one ingredient snack many people are taught it is.

Wealth is a full on banquet.

Sure the most important base is generous helping of crisp and fresh lightly tossed cash, but that is just the bed to lay the more delicate and delicious portions of the wealth recipe.  

True wealth must also include two or three table spoons of enjoyable shared pastimes.

Several thickly sliced satisfying acts of selfless charity complement the heady and filling chunk of indulgent pleasure. The trick here of course is balancing the earthiness with something more graceful.

But the thing that pulls all this together to take the whole thing from a mishmash of bits and pieces is the thinking that produces the sauce.

A bad sauce however can spoil the experience and flavour of being wealthy and leave a bitter taste which is where sadly most people live.

Remember the first lesson? Don’t let bad experiences sour your sauce!

Wealthy Thinking

To think wealthy requires a good dash of realisation that rich people are not evil and wanting, and getting stuff isn’t bad wine.

I know that particular belief wine is strong, and your up-dragging people told you it was wrong to drink it, but you’re not drinking it, you are heating it and reducing it down to get the flavour without the alcoholic guilt which is steamed off.

Next you add some finely chopped generosity…

…and the zest of time shared with the people you are teaching and touching. To get and give the value you need stir slowly.

And now the pudding.

To be wealthy…

…you have to produce something, even if that is some more wealth. And when you produce something you are pouring the rich and sweet custard of Experience into the bowl of people who surround you, support you and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

So take the following,

  • Effort
  • Knowledge
  • Generosity
  • Time
  • Pleasure
  • Experience

Mix liberally, garnish with a pinch of gratitude and savour…

If you need some Wealthy Thinking to get past your sticking points and Up Your Game, at whatever you do, to stop being left behind, then think what I might be able to do for you on a Quick Consult. No messing about for months, just rapid effective creative skills creation.


Leader? Are you a hypnotist?

Leader? are you a hypnotist? Jonathan Chase Hypnotist #subconsciousskills

If you’re a leader you could be a hypnotist, you just didn’t know it.

Let me show you very simplified approach to getting people to feel good when doing the mundane, and then do it better.

Hypnosis is the intentional implanting of ideas at a subconscious level giving rise to changed behaviours in the recipient.

If you lead you should be influencing behaviours because it’s only when the non-conscious process takes onboard an idea, and runs unquestioningly with it, that we get what NLP practitioners call unconscious competence.

For clarity lets call that a habit. And it’s only when behaviours become habitual that we get the competence which leads to the satisfaction in being able to complete tasks imaginatively, with ease, and with recognition and most importantly. . .

Get the real reward of feeling good emotionally = happy, which we call success.

People are naturally accepting of the subconscious language patterns we might call suggestion, especially when they are being creative, imaginative, passionate and emotional, and it’s then we can suggest the reward for being successful.

On stage for instance the Hypnotist will tell people constantly how good they are doing.

They will congratulate their guests on stage and encourage compliance by offering an emotive reward, “The better you do this, the better you feel.”

That’s a direct subconscious communication or suggestion.

No, it’s not conversational or covert hypnosis, certainly not embedded language patterning or neurolinguistic programming gobbledegook.

No true leader needs that rubbish to help their teams, employees, customers, followers, feel better about themselves, their job or the boss.

All you need to do is direct subconscious language directly at the emotional imaginative mental process we call the Subconscious, and attach a feel good to it, as all charismatic and influential people do, they are Hypnotists, even if they don’t know it.

Try this:

Next time you see a team member, or a friend or someone in the family for that matter, do something that makes them feel good, say something that you naturally feel is right with the intention to fire that feeling again.

And, as my friend and persuasion expert Tom Vizzini would point out, do not go for a huge over the top obvious excitement or joy, watch for a simple starting smile and attach to that.

Later, at a time when the same person is doing you want or need them to feel good about, but they are pretty much emotionally neutral about; fire the feel good attachment trigger or anchor.

Now trust me on this, there are no particular words or phrases, body language or gestures, that will give you control over their mind here, well there are, but the length of a blog isn’t the place to show you how to get those.

So it could be anything, something you’d say off hand or even something that feels right but doesn’t make sense.

After you’ve attached or anchored your trigger – in Subconscious Skills we prefer attached because it’s way more flexible – then. . .

“With very little effort you can help people get an habitual feel good mood over boredom.”

Every year I watch company Business Owners, Team Leaders, Trainers and CEOs learn to use subconscious skills and discover how, without complex and convoluted language and story telling, they can lead and influence their colleagues, co-workers and service teams to get and give them the max.

I’m a Freelancer professional influence advisor that allows me a clear vision helping people who motivate, manipulate and move others, get the communication and performance edge skills you need to keep your momentum going.

Let’s cut to the chase and talk.

We don’t just coach, we, that’s with my partner Jane Bregazzi, act as catalysts and facilitate your focused future helping you to think differently.

Why Midlife? 45 and above?

Our major time of transition mostly occurs when we recognise our mortality and start thinking of long term legacy.

That time where we need to train others to grow into their own power positions.

Most people who suffer stress, even burnout, hit it here due to top of the tree tension needing a strategy to harness and control pressures.

Serious as a leader? Then up your game because better performance lowers stress. 

“I watched 15 normal people become competent at this stuff and didn’t see what happened, it was like alchemy. Jonathan Chase is one of; if not the, best trainers of subconscious skills in the world.”

How do you catch a liar?


The Hypnotist shows you How To Catch A Liar

Eye accessing cues in NLP and micro expression and body language are supposed to be able to tell you how people are processing their thoughts.

As the Hypnotist I’ve experimented a lot with this and with what magicians call cold reading, here’s a fast way to catch a liar.

Actually Derren Brown blows the old eye accessing clues apart in his first book. It’s largely unproven rubbish. However what he gives you in place is worth gold. And I’m paraphrasing here.

‘What you need to watch for is Their Pattern’

So how do we set up a human lie detector without using hypnosis or NLP, with just simple observation? Read more How do you catch a liar?
