FEATURE STORY :
Change Your Signature
By Malcolm McLeod, co author of "Change Your Signature, Change Your Life"
Did you know that the scribble you casually slap on a letter,
cheque or credit card docket can give insights into your
personality? And did you know that your handwriting
can tell a different story about the real you?
Your signature–or sign of your nature–represents you
to the world. But does it represent you at your best?
Your signature is like your own corporate logo. How upset would McDonald’s, Sony, NAB, Mercedes Benz be, if their corporate logo was misrepresented?
To be successful, you must show the world the best you. The tips in this newsletter and the details outlined in the new course will help start or intensify the success fire in your belly.
They’re simple to implement, and with daily repetition and
persistence, you’ll build an unstoppable momentum. And
change can start right here, with a flick of your pen.
• Why this works
If you developed your signature as a teenager and it’s still the
same, ask yourself, “Is my signature still a reflection of how I see
myself and how I want to be seen by the world?”
Let’s put it this way. Your signature / autograph is how you present yourself to others. On the other hand, your handwriting shows what
you’re really like.
Having a GREAT signature sends unconscious signals to
everyone who sees it. Your handwriting matters.
So, even if you haven’t decided yet to master the science of
handwriting analysis, you at least need to get a signature
make-over, so you aren’t giving false signals to the world.
If there’s inconsistency between your signature and
handwriting, there’s a gap between how others see you
and what you’re really like.
High achievers often write their signature with a forward slope,
which means they’re warm, caring and outgoing.
Does your signature exude your “warm side” or your “cold side”?
A great catalyst for a positive personal shake-up is to make
an intentional change to your signature.
In fact, in Europe, Asia, India and Australia, that is the #1
question I get: “What should I change about my signature?”
Ask yourself, “What does my signature say to the
world now? Is it really reflecting who I am now, or who I was
20 years ago. And, are there any “red flags” in my signature that
other people see that I don’t even know about ?”
Many people from my seminars from years gone by have
told me that changing their signature was their “line in the
sand” moment, when they really thought about who they’ve
been, are now and will become in the future. You can let this
information flow over you or you can seize it, step over your
own line in the sand, and sign up for a magnificent life.
Let the message sink in
People say once they’ve been to my seminars, they can’t look at
a signature or handwriting without thinking what a twisted,
sick puppy they’re dealing with, or what a balanced, poised,
disciplined person they have the honour to be mixing with.
When I run a full length, “Improve yourself, improve the
world” seminar/workshop throughout Asia or Australia,
most attendees use the information to create a new
signature on the spot.
Most are inspired to grab some fuel for improvement
from the session. It can be a tough, cynical world, and I’d love
you to grab this information right now. . .
Get a pen and some paper, and check out, with a
new awareness, how your signature looks. Implement the
tips below. You’ll see that when these exercises are done
with enthusiasm and supporting actions, they become visible
affi rmations, designed to fire up your life, where you are an
unstoppable, positive maniac on a mission!
Your new inspirational signature
Create and adopt a full name signature that is readable
and consistent with the rest of your writing. When I do a
seminar I display three different signature styles:
1) The scribbled signature
This signature reflects a person with a fast mind. Their
hand can’t keep up with their brain, hence the scrawled
autograph. Ever tried reading a doctor’s handwriting?
A quick signature belongs to a person who doesn’t live
in the “NOW.” It also displays a form of arrogance. The
message is, “My time is more important than yours so work
out yourself what I’m trying to say!”
2) The first initial and surname signature.
These people tend to sit on the fence emotionally and
only give a tease of what they’re about. Interesting
characters are the ones who put a full stop (or period)
between their surname and first name, thus creating
a subtle barrier between them and their family. They
live a Jekyll-n-Hyde existence. At home, they’re a
loving, caring brother, mother, father or sister, but take
them on a conference away from the family and they
are party animals waiting to run amok! Nice people though.
3) MORE SIGNATURE TIPS and common questions….
Should your name slant uphill?
Should you underline your signature?
What is the meaning of a last name being crossed out?
Is it okay to change your signature, legally?
Is using your initials okay for a signature?
Does an illegible signature tell people you can’t be trusted?
What are the top three things you should never do in an autograph?
For the last 15 years I’ve been asking these questions of audiences
at seminars both in Australia and overseas. Now you can hear me
online, via this new program with Bart Baggett.
It Only Takes Three Weeks
Remember, “Change can be easy . . .
it’s just a whole lot easier not to change.”
It takes three weeks to form and own a new habit. Think hard about
your signature and develop one that reflects who you are now
or who you’d like to become.
If you want to make the time you’ve spent reading this pay,
then get off the porch! Hit your credit card administrator and
tell them you’ve changed your signature! (They’re getting used
to people doing this after my seminars!)
By doing this, you tell yourself and the world that you want,
deserve, and WILL have more quality in your life!
Sign now for a better life. The pen, my friends, is in your hand.
Anything started immediately is already half done. Go forward,
get on the front foot, and good luck.
