Words to Avoid

Bad or Strong Language?

Well, there is a difference.

In my seminars I make the same disclaimer each time, as you can see on the right:

OK, so occasionally the 'F Bomb' is let off (not just by me but by the attendees when they are confronted by things they have denied) but that doesn't mean that the language is bad, just strong.

There are reasons why it is strong:
I want you to remember a specific thing.
I want to shock you.
I want to shake you.
I really mean this.

There is also a reason why I deliberately say things that are not grammatically correct.  It is so that your conscious mind coughs on it, allowing my message to slip in and go into your unconscious mind.  Sometimes, to get a message across we have to resort to sleight of mouth techniques.

So what constitutes bad language?  Look at these words.  If you use any of these you must eliminate them from your vocabulary.  They do not serve you well.

You fill in the blanks....

M_ _BE


Kick that but out of your life.  No one wants to hear your 'but' go off! ;-)

Yeah great, that's a real empowering word.  Whoever wrote 'if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again' wrote a great mantra to recite for failure.  If I told you I would 'try' and get over to see you tonight, you KNOW I wont be coming.  It's a cop out!

Another version of me, if someone says this to ain't happening.

This is a vague word.  It's almost the same as try and perhaps but maybe is neither one thing or another.  If you are asked something and you respond with maybe then you are sending a message that 'You don't know'!  People want certainty.

Now the next four...





Yeah, I here are the real answers...

Aaaarrrgghh! The worst of all words.  Any situation that causes concern is now labelled a 'problem'.  There are no such things as 'problems'.  Fact!  A better word would be 'CHALLENGE'.  I used to run firewalk events for charities to raise money (it was very successful)...They were called 'The Firewalk Challenge'.  If they were called 'The Firewalk PROBLEM' no one would sign up or do it.  Turn anything you would consider a problem into something that you can deal with by calling it a challenge.  Down grade that sucker!
When you see 'problems' as hurdles you can leap over them.  They never stop you.  I would much rather watch the 200m hurdles than the 200m problem at the Olympics.  Imagine the starting gun going off and everyone runs 20 meters and then stops at the first 'problem'.  Who would pay the ticket price for THAT?

No such thing.  And if there is, you don't want part of it.  Imagine catching the eye of the pilot as you settle into your seat on a flight to Los Angeles.
You ask, "Hey, I was just wondering.  Looking at all those dials and switches in there, how are you gonna get us to Los Angeles?"
What would you do if the pilot said, "I dunno, maybe we will get lucky"?
That's right, you would be the second person off the plane.  I would be first!
there is no such thing as luck.  You create your own version of luck by the choices you make either consciously or unconsciously.

Anyone telling you that something can't be done is really telling you that they don't know how to do it.  If you look around you now, most of the stuff surrounding you, that you bought, that you use, like TV's-iPads-Mobile Phones-Radios-Computers-Cars-Planes-the list goes on...NONE of that stuff existed at one time because people had no idea how to make them happen.  they thought 'it can't be done'.  People with vision, nerve, belief, invented them.  They didn't listen to can't.  They thought CAN!

Again, something to hold onto.  It's false.  'I hope I win the lottery'  Yeah right, keep hoping.

Choose your words carefully.  Sometimes we say things by accident and we don't realise it's a limiter.  If we KEEP saying it we engage with it and then it becomes a way of life.

Remember, Be Positive may sound like a blood group but its really a way of achieving what you want, and doing what others say can't be done.

Words to Use

Some trainees of HPT-Transformation
during a break.
Little did we know it, when we started to formulate language, we had no idea that what we said to someone effected us as well.

Not only does what we say to someone effect them, it has an effect on us too, as the person saying it.

Our vocabulary, the one we reside in most of the time, is a key indicator of our own mindset and system.

"Everyday conversation" has a different meaning for speakers in a variety of speech communities. In the speech community of my youth (East London 'Cockney' working class) I would say that less than 100 words are necessary for survival: "I am hungry," "I am thirsty," etc.

As a teacher/ speaker/ trainer or educator, it is necessary for me to converse on the nature of thought, the definition of various terms (right, wrong, truth, etc.) must be explained at dinner parties and in casual conversation with various Academics and in front of audiences during seminars. A person with a vocabulary of 400 to 500 words would be able to function effectively as a member of society, but would not be able to discuss the idea of writing as internalized social discourse re-externalized. 

If your goal is to survive and to earn a living wage, then you could with a vocabulary of 400 words.

Working in a specialized field, however, (even if the field is machine operation in a factory) requires specialized terms. 

The first line of this post used at least 21 different words. To give you an example of the need for a large specific vocabulary, there are nearly 4900 terms associated specifically with baseball!  (A nice fact to trot out at a dinner party!)

Eliminating bad language from our vocabulary is a start.  As I said in a previous post, we advocate the removal of vague and disempowering words in the HPT-Transformation seminar.  This is because of the effect they have on us and on the people we use them on.  We have spent our lives unaware of this. Sometimes, the words we embrace, and use repeatedly, can be the reason we do not get the results we want in life.  The words we use can in fact have a negative effect rather than a positive or useful one. 

Anything you can communicate about, you can be with-at choice.  The words that HPT-Transformation advocate as language that should be in your vocabulary are incredibly useful and important when you are describing something that cannot be contained in a person's belief system.

What they do is allow people to know that you are not describing what they think you are describing.

Here are a few of the basic and most used:

Recognition of one person by another.  Recognition of what another person says. Agreement that you have received what someone has said to you without giving any indication that you agree with it or not. A lot of the time, my response to comments in the seminar, if they are not a specific question, is  "I acknowledge what you are saying." or "I get that, thank you."  

As in 'Getting your Act together', your face to the world.  We describe people who have attained transformation as 'people who have their act together'.

A mutual understanding or arrangement about which it is understood that you will do what you said you would do.  An important factor of HPT is the importance of choosing to be responsible for keeping agreements.  If you break an agreement you are expected to look at what is in the space between you and fulfilling your agreement.
One of the maxims of HPT is: Do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it, how you said you would do it.

Replaces the word 'BUT' which is something that should be kicked or slapped.  Kick but out of your vocabulary as it has the connotation of 'Precluding' something.  'And' is far more empowering.  Remember, no one wants to hear your 'but' go off!

Far more powerful than 'Thanks' or 'Thank you'.  Those just mean you are grateful, you have accepted something, like anything from an Oscar (Thank the Academy) or your change at the checkout (Thanks, bye!) .  When we say we appreciate something, as in 'I appreciate your comments' we display a connection far deeper than mere gratitude. We look and engage on a deeper level.  We see more of what has been given to us.  We can stand in front of a work of art and appreciate the effort, the beauty, the talent, the skill and the feeling we get from it.  We never merely 'thank' a painting.  We appreciate it.  Conversely we can say 'I don't appreciate your comments'.  We never say 'I don't 'thank' your comments.

Aid to another person, coming from the assumption that the other person is responsible and at 'cause'.  It's in contrast to 'Help' listed in the post of words NOT to use, which puts the recipient at effect.

Being and acting consistent with who you hold yourself out to be for others, and who you hold yourself out to be for yourself. When the person you are when no one is looking is who you are when people are looking..

An automatic response is an unconscious one that we repeat until called on it.  Like yawning when others yawn.  Like shaking a hand that is held out to us without questioning.  Like asking someone if they 'want fries with that' when they order a portion of fries.  Like driving somewhere and having no memory of the journey when we arrive.  

Whatever you have that sits between you and you experiencing your own perfection.

A truly nonexperiential way of knowing which can prevent you from experiencing (true reality).
It is a misconception that prevents you from seeing what's going on for real.  Usually used as 'Belief System' which is just a whole bunch of beliefs.  Beliefs in themselves are good, when linked to an experience.
My reality, when related to you, becomes a reality to you as it has the benefit of coming from my experience. When you relate my experience to someone else it becomes a mere belief as it contains no component of reality.

Automatic behaviour or 'autopilot responses' are triggered when someone 'pushes your buttons'.

Being at the cause of your experience is the polar opposite of being at its effect.  When we are the cause of our lives, then we create our own reality and we cannot be at the effect of other reality (powerless, bullied, victimized etc).  Once experienced, people gain incredible power over their lives.

A far more powerful word to use than problem.  A challenge is something we can overcome, there is possibility of achievement in a challenge whereas Problem has the air of finality mixed with major issue. 
Everything negative should be catagorized as a challenge.

Those voices in your head that tell you to do things.  Make sure they are positive and not negative messages. The voice in your head is called thinking, and the voice is your own.  You would not lie to yourself so make your thoughts empowering.

Get Clear.  Clarify something. remove doubt and the rubble and wreckage that is preventing you from seeing.  Be free of doubt, obstruction, obfuscation and restrictions.  this is closely related to belief systems which prevent you from getting clear.

HPT creates a context in your life.  From a context of where things in your life are arranged in such a way to make you satisfied to an experience of being satisfied RIGHT NOW and organising things in your life around that. A Context is a set of circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood.  Most people work from within a contextual framework. Unfortunately, this frame is too limiting for them on a long term basis.  Like a comfort zone, unless it is stretched and widened, no growth can take place or be achieved.

Literally: "At the effect of".  The consequence or outcome of the Cause.  When one is at the effect one cannot cause it and therefore feels powerless.  One can move from effect to cause by choosing to choose one's experience.

What HPT-Transformation is all about. Experience, experiential training, the source of reality.

One of the ultimate acknowledgements.  Also: Great, Fantastic.

Realizing the the meaning or the significance of a communication or experience.

Another positive word to use in place of Problem.  Hurdles can be jumped over, climbed or kicked over.  If there was a 400m Problem event in the Olympics, every one of the runners would stop after 20 meters at the first problem.  The 400m Hurdles is a far better event.

Direct relation to getting what you want. the achievement of your goal or experience.

Acceptance or agreement of the other to be who they are and who they are not.

What we consider ourselves to be right now. "A linear arrangement of successive moments of now".

The only way to know, other than 'natural knowing'.

How you live your quotidian life: with your eye on the goal.  Purposefully.

Reality is the context in which we work and live but it can be described as an illusion.  The only thing that is really real is experience.  The test for reality is physicalness. 

Communication of insights, experiences and realizations.

Where it ALL comes from.  Every river has a source, every idea has a source.  The source is the creator of the idea.  The source of every idea, thought, question, decision...boils down to you and me.  We are our own source.

From here is not space: that is Distance.  From here to the edge of the universe is not space: it is distance. What physicists and astronomers call space is actually distance.  Space is where distance exists.  We cannot measure space, we can only experience it. When we allow others to be who they are is allowing them space to be.  When we are who we really are and we say and think what we really mean then we do so in the space we allow ourselves. 

Your experience/s. Your experience/ experiences are the ultimate truth in your life.

What we are most of the time.  On Autopilot.  Out to lunch.  Unaware.  Oblivious.  An important HPT maxim is 'If everyone was allowed to say what was exactly on their mind right now, most people would be speechless!'  Many people drive to work with no recollection of the journey.
HPT gives people space to wake up, become conscious, and look at their lives and live them.

The automatic stuff going on in your head most of the time.  A synonym for chatter.

Bottom line:
Choose your words carefully.  These words are only some of the preferred words in the HPT canon.

We find them to be empowering, motivating, positive and above all else, honest forms of communication

Remember, 'Be Positive' may sound like a blood group but its really one of the mental components that help you achieve what you want, and doing what others say can't be done.

The Regeneretics Centre for HPT-Transformation and Self Awareness

Many people have asked me why I am not presenting some of the HPT-Transformation seminars and programs next year.  The answer is very simple and in two parts.

Firstly: I have trained two of my team to teach the seminar in my absence.  I am totally confident that they will do an excellent job.  In fact, only a while ago they presented the program in California to great success, satisfaction and acclaim.
The seminar is not, and has never been, about me.  The program is a culmination of learnings, research and experience over many years and although I admit, it's construction, content and style is all mine, I believe that my trainers can present it as if it is me there instead of them, and add their own delivery and style to it.  

Secondly: My plan has always been to open a retreat, a place of calm, relaxation, meditation and learning and the plan is now coming to fruition.
With the suitable property purchased and the renovation taking place now, I will be offering residential courses at a retreat deep in the Kent countryside in the United Kingdom from February 2016.

The Regeneretics Centre will serve all people, backgrounds, beliefs, and for all levels of need.  The focus is on providing a safe environment for teaching HPT-Transformation, care, empowerment, the clearing of barriers, masks, emotions and balancing of body, mind and spirit for all who desire peace, harmony, health and progress.

Human Potential Technology is a Transformational model to help you build the life you want, and be the person you were destined to be. 

The Centre includes a main training room, relaxation areas, 8 bedrooms, library, rest areas, meditation areas, grounds with a lake and access to walks in the countryside.

"We did not come into this world with beliefs. Once upon a time, you and I were in intimate contact with reality and simply flowed with it. Then little by little we assimilated beliefs, constructed our prison bars and gave up that freedom we were born with. But no more! It is time, for Transformation"

Find Your Mind!

Most people exist not in a state of Self but in the fallen or untransformed state: a State of Mind.

This is a terrible and sad state in which people consider themselves not as the matrix but one of the things created IN the matrix.

In HPT, the 'Mind' is the way of designating the entire cybernetic system of any individual, including conscious as well as unconscious processes, operating without reference to Self.

The Mind is an automated warehouse of burdened, encumbered memories.  It's a linear arrangement of complete multi sensory records of successive moments (memory records), and operates according to a simple and undiscriminating system of logic that associates, and even identifies, things that are in fact quite different.

The Mind is a device whose purpose or, more accurately, design function is to ensure the survival of oneself or anything that one identifies with oneself.

'Survival' goes beyond physical survival.  It includes the survival of ones ideas, opinions, and self-conceptions, and thus results in being right and making others wrong, dominating and avoiding domination, justifying oneself and invalidating others.

To accomplish its purpose, the Mind scrupulously records those experiences that are necessary for survival. Experiences containing a real or imagined threat to survival, when successfully met, are those deemed necessary for survival.  This list of experiences include those containing pain and unconsciousness; loss or shock associated with emotional stress; and unwitting reminders of earlier records containing pain, shock or loss.

Whenever the present environment resembles in any way some such painful or stressful memory, whenever one encounters a situation that one perceives to be threatening to survival - one in which one might lose, be made wrong, be dominated, be invalidated - the past memories are reactivated, called into play in an undiscriminating way, as guides to the avoidance of pain and threat.

They exert a total command over behaviour in the present, controlling the body sensations, facial expressions, posture, thinking, emotions, appearance, fantasies, attitudes, states of mind, everything!

The mind operates according to the logic of identification.  Everything resembles everything else, resemblances are everywhere, painful and stressful images from the past are reactivated continuously.
They permeate the present, whether the resemblance is there or not.

HPT-Transformation 2016 Schedule.

The first 2016 Dates and Locations for
HPT-Transformation Seminars are now released.

All events will culminate with a firewalk.

Each seminar is a three day event.
Registration is at 8am.
Event commences at 9am on each Friday and at 8am Saturday and Sunday. Each day ends at 10pm latest.


• The seminar room will be air conditioned. The air conditioning will be turned to full power. IF IN DOUBT - BRING A SWEATER.

• Resist the temptation to spend late nights studying or socializing. Get plenty of sleep every night. You will need it to absorb what you will be hearing.

• Excessive alcohol and the taking of any drugs other than those prescribed by your doctor will reduce your ability to process the information you are being given. This includes the overnight breaks between seminar days.

• DO NOT sit next to anyone you know or came with during the training. Do make connection with the other people. One of the great side benefits of attending is the chance to make some genuine, lasting friendships with other people.

• Do be advised, throughout the training, there WILL be guests. All of these guests are personally invited by Dave Moore. They will be introduced to you at the start of each session. The Trainer may bring some of them in front of the room so you can see this work live, in action. Some guests will be on stage and will take part in the training directly.

• No bombarding of the guests with questions during breaks. They are there to demo and to talk. Any questions should come during the training sessions.

• You must be prepared to be asked up on stage to take part in some exercises with the Trainer.

• No timepieces are permitted to be worn in the seminar room. No watches, pocket watches or any other timepiece is permitted. Any contravention may result in removal.

• No mobile/ cell phones are to be used in the seminar room. ALL mobile/ cell phones MUST be switched off. Any mobile/ cell phone to be found in the seminar room, switched on or not, may result in the owner of the phone being removed from the seminar room.

• No recording devices are permitted. No recording of the seminar by attendees is permitted. Any contravention may result in the person being removed.

• Break times will be outlined prior to the commencement of the seminar and will be strictly adhered to.

• Each seminar day will end when the Trainer and the team have completed the days schedule and are sufficiently certain that all of the delegates have understood the days training.

• No talking or general conversation on any level is permitted between you and your neighbors in the audience during the seminar.

• If you come to the seminar as a group or with a fellow attendee, or if you strike up a conversation with any fellow attendees prior to the seminar commencing please refrain from sitting with them in the audience. Do not sit next to, in front or behind, anyone you know. Sitting with people you have no connection with; however slight, will enhance your concentration.

• Note Taking of ANY kind during the seminar is strictly forbidden. There is no need to make any notes about the training. You do not need to try to remember the training, it is designed and delivered so that you remember it naturally.

• Any questions you have will only be answered during the allotted times or by a prompt from the Trainer. Please wait for the microphone before asking. This will allow the fellow attendees to hear your question as well as the answer.

• If you see the Trainer sitting off by themselves during any breaks, meditating or doing breathing exercises, LET THEM BE! They are recharging so they can give you their best.

• No food or drink is to be consumed in the seminar room.

How much?

There was a very large parcel delivery company whose entire franking and distribution system just shut down one day, without any prior problem or fault.  Bang!  Every single machine in the place just ground to a halt.  Total silence!

Everyone stood transfixed, staring at the machinery, then each other, then back at the machinery.

One by one it dawned on them.  They had no way of getting the thousands upon thousands of letters and parcels out on the road and delivered.  This was a catastrophe, and a major one at that.

The Manager discovered the fault emanated from the control room computer.  It had malfunctioned.

The I.T. guys couldn't fix it.
The Manager couldn't fix it.
The software engineer couldn't fix it.

With no other option they knew they had to call in a specialist,  or a consultant. In this case, an external engineer.

When he got there they explained what had happened.  They told him where they thought the fault was but said that none of them had any idea how to rectify the issue.

The Engineer walked over to the main control panel of the computer server.  This was the brain, the nerve center of the entire company.  He looked at the system, the process, the components.

He took out a small hammer and hit one of the panels on the mainframe.  Deafening noise erupted and the machines kicked back into life and everyone cheered realising their jobs were safe because the company could continue to work.

The Engineer sat down, wrote out his bill and presented it to the manager who, after looking at the paper, raised his eybrows.

"£5000?  For that?  I can't authorize payment of this, I cant even warrant the price of this to the board without an itemized bill!"

The engineer took back the bill and on the back of it wrote out an itemization then he handed it back to the Manager.

The Manager read it, smiled, and nodded.

"I understand." He said, "I can authorize this!"

On the reverse of the bill the Engineer had written.
1. Hitting the panel with my hammer - £1
2. Knowing what panel to hit with my hammer- £4999.


I have people asking me for quotations for one day, two day or ten day seminars.  They ask me how much I charge for a training course.  I give them a daily rate which I RARELY discount.  Naturally, should a client want me to run a program for 5 days or more then of course I will consider.

What do you charge for your services?  Do you feel the need to be 'competitive'?

"How much do you charge for a training program?"
I get asked that a lot.

My answer?
"A lot more than it's worth!"
(no, not really, just checking you were concentrating!)

My standard answer?
"I have no idea! It depends on the client."

Each person or company is different. Each challenge is different. Each personal or company plan is different. Each group is different, be it in requirement or size.

I will tell you one thing though. I am at the top end of the scale. I don't charge less that £5000 for a days training for a group of 50 people. And that's just a seminar. Add an experiential event into the mix and it goes up.

Do others charge less? You bet.
Do I compete with them? You bet I don't.

Why would I compete. I am in business not the 100 metres! I know what I am worth. I know what the clients get from it. I know the amount of work involved prior to the event. I know the experience I have and the knowledge I am imparting.

I know I am giving people and companies nuclear missiles of information for firework rocket prices.

Over the years I've spent hundreds of hours explaining to salespeople the difference between Features and Benefits.

A Feature is what something does.
A Benefit is what that something does for you.

(You dont buy wellington boots or gloves. You are buying dry feet and warm hands.)

The other differentiator is Price over Value.

The cost of something is irrelevant if you see the value in it.
The price is what it costs. The value is what you attach to it by knowing what it will do for you, or how good it will make you look, or how much you need it.

Go into Louis Vuitton. Tell them you want a Filofax. It costs £500. I know, I have one!  Ask them for a discount and see what happens.

Never, ever, has anyone got a discount in Louis Vuitton unless it suits Louis Vuitton!

If you sell on price you will get caught up in a bidding war.
You will devalue your product and you have no guarantee the potential client will buy from you.
The danger is that if you say "It will cost you £5000" and the potential client says no, and after some haggling and negotiation you offer it for £3000, one thought will bounce around your potential clients brain like a pinball.

"What were you going to do with that other £2000 you were gonna squeeze out of me?"
State your price. Thats how much it is!
Never compromise and never devalue your self, your company, or your product!

Can I drop my price? Of course I can.
Will I drop my price? Of course I won't.

I am not in the market to compete. If I drop my price how do I know the 'competition' won't drop their price further?

Why would I want to be in a competition? We at the Moore Consortium do not see competition. We don't recognise it. For us to have competition would mean that others are doing what we do in exactly the same way as we do it. We do what we do and we charge what we charge...Because we're worth it ;-)

If you go in for a competition are you in it to be a competitor? No! You are in it to win it!

Here's a BGO (a Blinding Glimpse of the Obvious) If you Cut your price.... you will never be able to charge that person full price again.

It's far better to educate your client in just WHAT they are getting for the price. Value, value, value. Quality, quality, quality. And do it until they think two things.

1. They think they 'must have this'.
2. They can't believe they get all of that for 'only that much'.

Once they know what they are really paying for, price is not the issue.

You have NO Limitations

We tend to set our own limitations.

Usually they are based upon five of our senses.

Something we SEE.
Something we HEAR.
Something we TASTE.
Something we SMELL.
Something we TOUCH.

Why did I say 5 of our senses?  Because the commonly held definition of a “sense” is “any system that consists of a group of sensory cell types that respond to a specific physical phenomenon and that corresponds to a particular group of regions within the brain where the signals are received and interpreted.

Our senses total up to around 21.  The main 5 Senses listed above are always quoted but we tend to ignore or forget our sense of Balance, Thirst, Hunger, Fear, Pressure...the list of Senses is quite large.

But our self imposed limits are the issue.  We create an image or idea in our minds, a business we want to start, an amount of money we want to make or a relationship that we would like to have and if it is bigger and better than our current results we tend, on most occasions, to believe that we cannot do it.

Truth is, if we couldn't do it, we would not have been able to make the picture in our mind in the first place.

Again, going back to the 5 primary senses, when people are reading something in the newspaper, seeing something on TV, hearing conversations other people are having, they are mostly talking about why something can't be done.

If we engage with that information we set our self-imposed limit.  

If you are going to allow what you do and achieve to be based upon what you hear then you better make sure that the people telling you are getting phenomenal results.

Would you take financial advice from someone who is broke?
Would you go and see a sick doctor to get healthy?

Choose who you listen to very carefully.

When you get an idea in your mind, don't ask if it is right or wrong.  The question you should ask is 'will that idea take me from where I am and move me toward my goal?'  If it won't, it will certainly take you in the other direction, because it won't let you stay where you are.

When someone gives us a suggestion that takes us in any direction other than the one that we want to go we have the ability of consciously and objectively reject that idea.

But when we take that idea sitting in our conscious mind and turn it over to our unconscious mind it manifests in the physical body and we act upon it.

The context in which we have to create in is far greater than the self imposed limit we have given ourselves consciously.  The area of unused potential is far far greater in size than we first imagine.

We have no limitations.
