“I count him braver who
overcomes [himself] than
him who overcomes his
enemies; for the hardest
victory is the victory
over self.”

yourself; your victory will
never be endangered.”
Sun Tzu: The Art of War

lives will die.”

Key goals of this
webinar*….
*And all in 60 minutes!
14
1. Recognize Your Own Worst Enemy
(YOWE) when it shows up
2. Prevent YOWE from causing you to
act in ways that are not in your
own best interest
3. Share practical strategies for more
positive attitude and behaviors
15
Have you
ever…
16
Said or done something you
later regretted?
17
Procrastinated – put off
doing something
important?
18
Given in to a poor selfimage or low self-esteem?
19
Given up on a dream?
20
Had buyers’ remorse
21
If your answers to these
questions is “no” then
watch for our remedial
course on honesty
22
But if you answered yes,
then bring your two hands
together…
23
And shake hands with your
own worst enemy (YOWE)
24
YOWE: When lesser self
runs the show and best self
stands in the shadow
25
It’s the eternal struggle
between Ego and Soul
26
Ego wants things, Soul
wants time. Ego wants
fame, Soul wants friends.
27
Ego is insecure yet arrogant,
Soul is centered yet humble.
28
Ego is concerned about what
other people think, Soul is
concerned about how others
feel.
29
When things go wrong, Ego
points a finger, Soul looks
in the mirror.
30
Ego complains, Soul gives
thanks. The voice of Ego is
loud and demanding, the
voice of Soul is soft and
accepting.
31
Symptoms that
YOWE is in charge
32
Wishful thinking replaces
positive thinking
33
Wishful thinking is hoping
for something and waiting
for someone else to make it
happen
34
Positive thinking is
expecting something and
working to make it happen
35
Short-term focus: Having
fun vs. being happy
36
Hanging out in your
comfort zone
37
Procrastination and
Rationalization
38
Focus on self-interest
39
“When Napoleon stopped
fighting for France and
started fighting for
Napoleon, France fall.”
Dwight Eisenhower
40
Toxic Emotional Negativity
41
The Victim
Spiral
42
Starts with Learned
Helplessness
43
Degenerates into
Blame Game
44
And descends into
Victim Syndrome
45
YOWE makes decisions for
the “You” of right now –
never for the “You” of the
future.
46
No one on then deathbed
ever says “I wish I’d
watched more television” or
“I wish I’d spent more time
in the office – or in bars”
47
The four universal end-oflife regrets…
48
Relationships
I wish I’d spent more time
with family and friends
49
Experiences
I wish I’d (started the
business, written the book,
traveled the world, etc.)
50
Finances
I wish I’d spent less and
saved more
51
Health
If I’d known I was going to
live this long I’d have taken
better care of myself

21 Actions for
Winning the War
with Yourself
58
Action #1
Learn to recognize the
voice of YOWE and the lies
it will tell
59
Challenge self-limiting
assumption about yourself
and what is possible
60
You never “can’t”
You just can’t yet
61
Confront the malignant
echo of negative self-talk –
it’s nothing more than
mental graffiti
62
63
Employ The Janitor in Your
Attic™ to erase the mental
graffiti of negative self-talk.
65
You can rewire the hardware by
reprogramming the software!
Action #2
Replace self-diminishing
labels with accurate
descriptions
67
You are not lazy (a selfdestructive label – not to
mention being a character
defect)
68
You have a hard time
getting started (a problem
that can be solved)
69
Action #3
Replace self-sabotaging
metaphors with those that
affirm
70
71
72
73
Action #4
Play the Reporter Game
74
Playing Reporter will help
you to…
See the world as it is: not as
it used to be, as you think
it should be, as you wish it
were, or as you fear it might
become – and…
76
You never have to defend or
apologize for things that
you didn’t say.
77
Action #5
Don’t pick fights you don’t
need
78
Action #6
Focus your dissatisfaction
79
Dissatisfaction can be a
great source of energy if
you aren’t promiscuous in
how you throw it around.
80
Any time you catch yourself
whining or complaining,
redirect that unhappiness
onto the one dissatisfaction
that really matters to you.
81
Action #7
Change your trajectory with
DDQs (Direction Deflection
Question™)
DDQ
82
Will what I’m
about to do or say
help me be my
best self?
83
A DDQ is really
three questions…
84
Question #1
Who am I when I’m being
my best self in any
situation?
85
Question #2
Is what I’m about to do or
say right now going to help
me be that person?
86
Question #3
If not, what would my best
self do?
87
The DDQ is
infinitely
adoptable…
88
DDQ for time
Is what I am about
to do with my time
going to help me
achieve my most
important goals?
DDQ for parenting
Will what I’m about
to say to my child
reflect the parent I
want to be?
90
DDQ for money
Will what I’m about to
spend my hard-earned cash
on help me achieve my goal
of being debt-free and
financially independent?
91
DDQ for health and fitness
Will what I’m about to put
in my mouth help me
achieve my desired physical
goals?
92
Two Hints
93
Hint #1
If you don’t hear “No” a lot
more than you hear “Yes,”
you are probably not being
honest with yourself…
94
Hint #2
If the answer to “what
would I do?” is more
difficult than what you were
about to do, it’s almost
certainly the right answer
95
Action #8
Change your emotional
station with EDQs (Emotion
Deflection Questions™)
EDQ
96
Is the emotion I’m feeling
helpful – if not, what
emotion would I want to
experience?
97
Visualize yourself changing
the station
98
Action #9
Get your body
into the act
99
When your body is strong, it
will bend to your commands.
When your body is weak, you
must submit to its demands.
Research by Amy Cuddy
described in this TED talk
shows how body posture
has a physiological impact
on the mind.
Cuddy says don’t just fake
it till you make it…
Fake it till you
become it!
The other way that your
mouth talks to your mind
104
Action #10
Double time yourself
105
Speed and momentum are
emotional first, physical
second
106
Action #11
Create energy rituals
107
Action #12
Reframe, Rescript,
and Rewrite
109
Reframe how you interpret
your circumstances
110
Rescript the story
of your life
111
Personal
Pervasive
Permanent
Rewrite unhelpful
memories from the past
113
The past is what you choose
to remember – and how you
choose to remember it
114
What do you suppose Mr. Smith meant by
this:
You will never amount to…
115
What you can learn from
the genius prodigies studied
of James Hillman
116
Action #13
Dare to not
compare
117
You are often comparing
your at your worst against
someone else at their best…
118
Action #14
Practice the two
detachments that
earn you two
freedoms
119
Detachment from things
earns you freedom of
movement
120
Detachment from opinions
earns you freedom of
conscience
121
You will worry a lot less
about what other people
think of you if you will
admit how infrequently
they think of you!
122
Action #15
Use Metaphorical
Visualization™ to
create early warning
mechanisms
123

Take the Pickle
Challenge™
131
Action #19
Take to heart the seven
simple promise of The SelfEmpowerment Pledge™
133
Joe’s slide show on The Self-Empowerment Pledge
The first 3 promises
are the foundation of
personal character
strength…
135
Monday’s Promise
I will take complete
responsibility for my health,
my happiness, my success, and
my life, and will not blame
others for my problems or
predicaments.
136
Tuesday’s Promise
I will not allow low self-esteem,
self-limiting beliefs, or the
negativity of others to prevent
me from achieving my
authentic goals and becoming
the person I am meant to be.
137
Wednesday’s Promise
I will do the things I’m afraid to
do but which I know should be
done. Sometimes this will
mean asking for help to do that
which I cannot do by myself.
138
Action #20
Don’t give up on
your dreams
140
“Brick walls are not
there to stop you, they
are there to make you
prove how much you
want something.”
Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture
Action #21
Carry on an imaginary
conversation with the
person you will be at
age 65
142
Ask that future “you” what
the you of today can do to
make his or her life more
comfortable and secure.
143
You will probably hear a
very clear answer that is
almost certain to include…
144
Spend less and save more
145
Watch less TV and get more
exercise
146
Spend less time with email
and more time with real
people

Follow your dreams
wherever they lead
