    Barry Nicolaou, who is a best-selling author of The 11 Master Secrets to Business Success and Personal Fulfilment, joins us again to talk about the placebo effect and the connection between the mind, body and spirit.

    This week, he discusses what is going on in the world at the moment with the overwhelming amount of information about COVID-19 and how our mind is beginning to turn against us.

    And while the mind can work against us, it can also work for us, using the intelligence within us to create the life of our dreams in all eight areas, rather than causing destruction to our mental and physical health.

    • How the Placebo and Nocebo effect works
    • How we attract our beliefs
    • How to materialise what you visualise

    • How to teach children to use their creative imagination to believe

    @Sam Makhoul - How Coronavirus Can Positively Impact Your Life

    @Sam Makhoul - How Coronavirus Can Positively Impact Your Life

    Remember what life was like before coronavirus? It was busy; we were always in a rush and felt exhausted as we tried to achieve everything and anything while neglecting those closest to us.

    But since COVID-19 took the world hostage (as some may say), we've been forced to reassess our lives - in a positive way. Whether it is our family life, love life or work life, our lives have slowed down and our priorities have shifted.

    We are spending more time with our family and loved ones; we are working more effectively and spending time learning new skills. But most importantly, we are sleeping more, eating better and looking after our health after months, even years of neglect.

    So, can coronavirus positively help our well-being?

    In this weeks' podcast, Sam discusses:

    • Our idea of a "normal" life before and after coronavirus
    • How the virus can positively impact our trees of life - health, love, family, work, learning, wealth
    • Tips on rebuilding your business following the pandemic
