Website: www.ChaneyWeiner.com

Chaney Weiner is a sought after authority on human potential and personal development. He is the founder of the Chaney Institute of Human Potential, an organization dedicated to empowering people worldwide in all seven areas of life by helping them discover their hidden brilliance and uniqueness based on what is most important to them.

Topics to be covered (time permitting):

1. Sometimes people will say that things occur (defining moments) because of “luck” or by “coincidence.” What are your thoughts on this?
2. Since we are speaking about defining moments and having a breakthrough, would you mind sharing your defining moment and how it led you to having a breakthrough in your life?
3. Is there a way that someone can determine their defining moment?
4. Some times when someone does have a defining or breakthrough moment (this can be in their career, a special accomplishment, maybe receiving a lot of money for what they did, etc) they may have a tendency to get “up” or “elated” or very “excited.” Can you discuss the importance of how to handle a defining moment, especially if someone is very “positively emotionally charged?”
5. What would you say to someone who says that they don’t know what their defining moment is or that they’ve had too many negative moments to even think of their defining moment?
6. How can you tell if you’ve had a defining moment? What are some things to look for?
7. Many people will “hold on” to past pains and carry around a lot of emotional baggage. Now you say that this can stop someone’s ability to have that one true defining moment. Can you discuss this further?
8. You also speak about having a breakthrough as a result of realizing your defining moment. How can you tell if you’ve had a breakthrough in any area of your life…what does it mean to have a breakthrough?
9. Once you realize that you’ve had a breakthrough, how can you know or trace it back to a specific (defining) moment that occurred?
10. What would you say to someone who may feel down and out in their life right now and what can they do to turn things around?
11. Many people commonly have negative thoughts that come up and want to get rid of them. You say to not get rid of negative thinking. Can you explain this further?
12. Do you have any final thoughts that you would like to leave our listeners with?
