“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”
Powerful question by Johnson Spencer frequently quoted during business and self-development seminars. The author of “Who moved my cheese” masterfully painted a picture of the constant need for change using two mice characters, “Sniff” and “Scurry. However, change is something that we all avoid often.
On the flip side, we know that the change is inevitable and it is the pill we need to swallow to get us to the promised land, where the dreams come true.
So, have you really taken time to answer this question?: “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” Pause for a minute, do not rush, notice what images and feelings start appearing on the screen…
Chris Howard Event in Asia
I met Chris Howard for the first time in London. I attended his Breakthrough to Success seminar around 2008. He spoke to the audience of over 2000 participants, I loved the experience. I still vividly remember how he explained the concept of having ferocious curiosity by acting out a story of a little kid who is anticipating receiving Christmas gifts. Powerful way of teaching the attitude that drives our behaviours and leads towards modeling excellence in whatever we do. Somehow the story stuck with me.
Last year I accidentally bumped into Chris at one of the Internet Marketing events in Sentosa, Singapore. Here is a short interview I manage to make with Chris.
When I heard that he is doing workshops in Kuala Lumpur teaching his strategies I wanted to experience it for myself.
6 Day Intensive Course – Chris Howard Event in Asia
The 6 day “Transformational Leadership & Coach” course was took place at the beginning of September this year. It was an intense one. Most of the days we started at 7.30 am and finished at 9-9.30 pm. However, funnily enough at the end of the day I did not feel tired. Chris loves the stage, he brilliantly combined acting skills with telling an empowering story that teaches and deeply embeds important material in a way that is remembered for long.
Every single evening, I was coming home excited, refreshed and sharing my learnings with my wife. What is more important, the course was hands on, practical, we did exercises on the day. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
Power of A Simple Script – Chris Howard Event in Asia
It was incredible to witness how following a simple script could bring about changes in another person. The power of language is way understated by most people and very well utilised by commercials and advertising.
Pause for a second and ask yourself these questions:
- What if you could master how to advertise your goals and dreams to yourself?
- What if you could learn the strategy that allows you to communicate effectively with yourself and people around you?
I have personally witnessed on the course 2 people struggling with anger issues and transforming just because of the use of different language patterns, that loosened up the grip of the problem.
I have seen a guy who had a snake phobia changed within 15 min of conversation, just by following a script. It is eye opening to discover that major emotions like sadness, fear, anger, are just strategies with triggers that we choose to run.

Richard Branson and Necker Island – Chris Howard Event in Asia
Chris shared his conversation with Richard Branson. Owner of Virgin, who bought his Necker Island in a very creative way. While on a holiday with his girlfriend, Branson gave a cheeky bid of 100,000 GBP for the 3 million GBP island, and then eventually bought it for 180,000 GBP. Currently Branson charges around $60,000 per day. Chris asked Branson, “Do not you have problems getting customers at this price?” Branson answered, “When you build something that is the best in the world, there will always be a market for it”. What a powerful lesson.
What would you build if you weren’t afraid to fail? Think about it.
