The pictures in the slide show are examples of "(K)notty Word" messages. (The "Remember your Bag" message is a good one.) These are the kind of messages I help re-frame with my Articulation Proofing process. If you remove words like "not, don't, can't, won't, wouldn't, couldn't, shouldn't" from your message and replace them with empowering words like "do, can, will, would, could", you will have an enhanced more empowering message. Give it a go! Check out Articulation Proofing
Communication is at the core of every personal moment, experience, transaction and interaction. Whether you are engaged in self-talk or presenting to a large audience, your word choices will have a significant impact on the results you achieve; and help you create a culture of confidence. Remember the Ice is an easy to learn, yet comprehensive empowering word choice program that teaches you to enhance your communication skills with family members, friends, clients, co-workers — anyone who is important to you. It helps you stay focused on your task and accomplish your goals because you are conveying your message, and articulating your thoughts in a clear, precise manner. You eliminate confusion and gain confidence in your message and ultimately attract more of what you want.

Welcome to my profile and thank you for taking a moment to learn a little bit about my interests. For seven weeks, from May to mid June 2009, I experienced an extraordinary European trip where I had the opportunity to share the story of Remember the Ice and Other Paradigm Shifts. The picture top left is me in Roquefixade in the south of France with the Pyrenees in the background. In the center photo, I am in the town square, in the center of Mirepoix, France. I was hosted by Christophe Poizat, CEO of the International Network of Social Entrepreneurs (INSE) and had a great time. I was pinching myself . . . to see if this incredible trip was really happening to me. Indeed it was. Wonderful memories are captured in this picture of me with on the left Cornelis, Peter behind me and to the right we have got Hans and Hans during my visit to Holland on my European trip.

Remember the Ice and Other Paradigm Shifts

Here is the Story about Remember the Ice..... don't forget the ice imageIn a convenience store on Northern Avenue in Phoenix, AZ, the manager had placed a couple of signs above his cash registers. His intention was to encourage his patrons to buy more ice during the hot desert summer. I lived across the street from this store and came to know him. Rick was working one day as I made a purchase. This time I paused and asked him how his ice sales were going. Perhaps you might think this a strange question. Alas, I am intrigued by words and their juxtapositions as well as the outcomes of behavior. You see, the signs above the cash registers read: DON'T FORGET THE ICE. I asked Rick how sales were going. His reply was less than favorable. I paused and asked if I could make a suggestion. I mean, after all, this was Phoenix - in the desert - in the middle of the summer. (110+ degrees in the shade) "Rick, do you have a couple of pieces of paper and a magic marker?" I inquired. He gave me the items and I quickly made two new signs for him. The new signs were: REMEMBER THE ICE!!! I left with a knowing smile and purposely stayed away for about four to five weeks. When I did go back to the store I spoke with Rick about his recent ice sales. "I have had a 500% increase in ice sales in the last month. Sales are great!! How did you do that?!?" I smiled and explained what I had done, by using a simple question. "If I say to you: Don't think of the color blue. What color are you thinking of?" remember the ice image"Why blue of course" he replied. "Of course." Now if I say "don't forget the ice", what will you forget? "Hmmm...the ice."

Remember the Ice is about, helping you attract the life you want through empowering word choice. I am in a constant mode of re-framing and translating the comments, signs, commercials, messages, emails, website content, conversations; basically any spoken and written word. I shift messages that contain dis-empowering words or "(k)notty words" to ones that are more empowering. For example, the most popular one that is attached to me is changing "don't forget the ice" to "Remember the Ice".

don't forget the ice packet image"(K)notty Words" Click here to see signs that contain any of the "(k)notty words". The main ones: Not, Don't, Can't, Won't, Wouldn't, Couldn't, Shouldn't. Any form of NOT, as well as "TRY & BUT."

Remember the Ice has created many success stories. I would like to share the success story of fellow Ecademist Cornelis de Maijer.

Empowering word choice set the sails for this business. In October 2008, I met Cornelis de Maijer from Hoogland, The Netherlands. He is the managing partner for a luxury sailing yacht company catering to those desiring a posh and pampered cruise on the Mediterranean Sea. You really experience "Absolute Freedom" explains Cornelis. He is also a BlackStar member of the social/business networking website: Ecademy and was using the search mechanism to find a fellow member with a background in: "Positive Word Choice". Lo and behold, there was a direct match when he typed the key words into the search window. Yours truly matched the request, and Cornelis read my profile here on Ecademy. In a Skype conversation a few days after first reading my profile, Cornelis said, "Bob, Remember the Ice is such a simple, yet powerful concept to help me with my word choice." "In my previous content on my website, I had some poisonous words," he said. He was using (k)notty words in his content. Specifically, he had this statement: Don't forget to book early. One simple sentence with a misguided message had a profound impact on his bookings through the years. He was gaining a modest 12-15% increase in bookings for his sailing yachts off the Turkish coast. The same dis-empowering words were on his brochure as well. Ecademist Cornelis De Majier. Flaka logo and yacht "Remember to book early, and experience the difference!" You can learn more about his cruises at: Flaka Cruising This season marks number 14 for Cornelis in the sailing yacht business, and it has become his most productive. As of mid July, his increase in bookings has topped 165% AND he has already secured 20 bookings for 2010. read more of this story here on my website...
More About Bob
Born in Boston, right down the road from Fenway Pahk, I have been a "die haahd" Sox fan from birth. Our family lived in Westwood, a little town about 20 miles southwest of Boston. I have an older brother and younger sister. He lives in Phoenix, AZ and she lives in Salmon, ID. Some of my favorite memories include many sporting events. Growing up around Boston, I was afforded the opportunity to attend Red Sox games at the idyllic Fenway Pahk, Celtics and Bruins games in the fabled "Gahden" (Boston Garden) and even the early Patriot games. Sports have been a major part of my life. I also saw world record performances at the famous B.A.A. Indoor Track & Field Games, and grew up watching the Boston Marathon. Later on I would run in it twice, (1969 and 1971) long before it became the large spectacle it is today. After graduating from high school in 1968, I attended Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, WV earning my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in1972 and then my Master of Arts from West Virginia University in 1974. While at Davis & Elkins College, I was a member of the NAIA National Soccer Championship Team of 1970, and runner-up in 1969 and 1971. We had also won the National Championship in 1968 as well. We had a very nice run. At WVU, I was introduced to many counseling theories. Our curriculum was a comprehensive one. I was really drawn to the Cognitive approach of Rational Therapy developed by Dr. Albert Ellis. After graduating in '74, I was introduced to Dr. Maxie C. Maultsby, Jr. He expanded Ellis' concepts and developed Rational Behavior Therapy. I gained my certification in RBT in 1975 and have been enamored with the Cognitive Behavior Therapy ever since. Bob Nicoll leaning against a large glass of iceIn 1987 I was introduced to Unlimited Power, the national bestseller by Tony Robbins. By 1991, I was working with him and training with him. I had the pleasure of being in his Certification Class in '91 when he finished his 2nd best seller: Awaken The Giant Within. When I returned to Phoenix, AZ, I began to look for ways to apply my new knowledge. I began to really focus on empowering word choice. On July 23, 1991 @ 10:07AM, I developed: Remember the Ice Click here for an excerpt of the first chapter of Remember the Ice and Other Paradigm Shifts Please go to to learn more about Bob.

"Bob Nicoll is a master of people and can break the . ice and then you will remember ice for life. We are friends up the sky. It was great to have you in Douro valley. My wine legacy is my great purpose. Wine, people and network a perfect combination. Enjoy my video: Big heart hug dear Bob from sunny vineyards in Douro Valley. Victor Marques "

Sally K Witt

"I cannot tell you enough good things about Bob Nicoll! He is smart, generous, warm, and an important mentor and friend in my life. I have known him for years through Ecademy, and developed a deep friendship and respect for him personally and professionally."

Kathleen KAT Keesling

"What a dynamic phone call I experienced with Bob Nicoll! I had a page of notes and was smiling ear to ear for the rest of the day. I have known the illustration from his book "Remember the Ice" and it has long been on the top of my mind in my work, whether it be writing, training or speaking. However, I have a lot of refining, fine-tuning and practice to do to really make the most of it. My telephone call with Bob put me on-task to read his book, and anxiously has me awaiting his new book coming out soon! (On his birthday!) Bob is an excellent communicator with truly interesting life experiences, and he's fun to have on the other end of the telephone! I trust his referrals and am following up on them this week. Thank you, Bob!"

Brian Alcorn

"I have known Bob for a couple of years. We are both directors with BNI. Bob's book, Remember the Ice, is a solid read for those who are improving their communications. It gets to the root of what our words mean, how poor word choices can counter what we really want to say, and how to line your words up better with the powerful message you want to communicate. Get this book! You will know what the heck "remember the ice" means! :) I recommend Bob - he is a solid gentleman, passionate about what he does, and talented at teaching people to be more effective communicators."

Victor Marques

"When things go wrong and you can't pay the bill,, Lost everything even your true will, Just look at the sky… blue sky. Make your last try… Life is a secret in every sense, The moon and the sun are intense. We plant seeds to grow.. Please make another blow. Life is a constant fight, You will see the light sometimes you feel not so good, down, Next day you have a golden Crown... Life with clouds of doubt, and you never know what comes about. It may be near when you think that everything goes away, You just discover peace and God in a true way. Warmest regards. Victor Marques "

Phil Richards

"I first met Bob on Ecademy and bought and read his book from a blog post in Ecademy. I was really struck by the book Remember The Ice and Other Paradigm Shifts - Bob's writing resonated with me, and I became aware of how much my word choice had been affecting the results of my communication. Bob and I have since worked together on the exciting RTI Community project, and so Bob and I have got to know each other quite well. What really comes through for me, is Bob's integrity and authenticity, as well as a passionate advocate of empowering word choice. Bob lives and breathes this stuff, and so is truly inspiring. The Remember The Ice process works wonders on communication, it is a process which for me needs to be embraced on a daily basis so that my word choice is empowering more times than it is un-empowering ! Thank You Bob for all that you have taught me in such a short time. I look forward to our continued relationship. Phil"

Ces Creatively

" I am writing testimonials for all those Ecademates who have really meant something to me in 2009. Bob, it has been a great experience getting to know you in 200. I really enjoyed putting together your story blog for the community club and hearing your message of Remember The Ice which has certainly stayed with me. The full effect of embracing positive word change (and backing that up with positive action) shall continue to unfold as my journey continues. Thank you for your wonderful book which I fully recommend to others. I enjoyed our many SKYPE calls despite the time difference and look forward to speaking to you again soon and would love to meet you in person in 2010. Wishing you all the best that life can bring. God Bless, with love Ces xxx email: "

Nicholas Collis

"Having first encountered Bob here on Ecademy last September, it was nice to meet him earlier this month, in Oporto and be among a few others to hear his story of "Remember The Ice" whilst cruising the Douro river. In recollection of this short journey with Bob, it was fun also to have experienced a great weekend with him and other Ecademists in seeing special scenery and sampling Victor's excellent Port and Douro Valley wines whilst staying in the Hotel Rural Flor do Monte in Alto Douro for the Ecademy event "This Trip Will Change your Life". After recently cracking the first "Ice Tray" of Bob's audio book "Remember The Ice and Other Paradigm Shifts", another few moments of Bob's inspiration came to mind earlier when he shared the power of relaxation and muscular control, on the Senhora da Assuncao mountaintop in the early hours of the 14th. With my warm regards & here's looking forward to our next meeting somewhere down the river of life! "

Clara Noble

"Ray and I met Bob in a BNI meeting in Lisbon and then spent the weekend with him and other ecdemy members in the Douro valley, Victor Wine/Olive Oil Marques. He is a great guy and one of the reasons why the week end was a memorable one. As a Coach, I was impressed with the 'Power in the Clarity of his Articulation' (his trade mark sentence) and, of course with the message included in his book Remember the Ice. Definatelly a must! All the best, Clara"

Victor Marques

" Thanks Bob for coming to Douro Valley.. One of my poems: Networking in a sunny day, Living along life in a very fresh way, Up the hills with your brave heart, You are made of love and fine art. Smile on your face, No colors, one race, Instant and kind care, Passionate and fair... With you the world is a better place, The flowers are positive and free, The horizon look at you and me, Happy sky, happy nature... Kindest regards from the best region for Port wine,,,Douro Valley. Your wine heart friend. Victor Marques "

Lars Larsson

"I met Bob for the first time at Victor Marques hotel in Douro Valley during 12-14 of June 2009. I can only say I´m glad I did. Bob is a fantastic man with a different mindset of how we should act and communcate. I learned a lot from him during these days. I hope we will have the opportunity to meet soon again to develop our new acquaintance."

Mark Lee

"Wonderful to meet Bob last week. The passion behind his 'Remember the Ice' presentation just shines through.

"Hi, Bob I love your profile and your knotty signs video. I really appreciate the opportunity to join your network. We seem to have a lot in common and I hope that we can get to know one another and become friends. Perhaps we will have the opportunity to work together in some way that will enable people to experience positive change in their lives. When one considers how many people grow up hearing the word, don't, or having statements framed in an negative context, it's no wonder that so many people get bogged down with life's problems, I took the liberty of sharing your story about, "Remember the Ice" with my grand-daughter whose two year old son's young mind is wide open to suggestion. Her statement was, "that's the best motherly advice anybody has ever said to me". So much I would like to say but perhaps this is not the best time and place to get carried away. I hope you and I can maintain contact. I know I can learn a great deal from you. In the meanwhile, I will remember the ice and you remember when you are out and about in your world travels to be sure to stay between the ditches. Thanks again for connecting. Warm regards and best wishes, Lee "

Paul Clegg

"Although we are both Directors with BNI (he 20 years, me 8) it took a friendship developed on Ecademy to make the connection. I have had the pleasure of looking after Bob during his short visit to Somerset and in traveling I have come to realise how the phrases and words we are comfortable using, can have exactly the opposite effect. Recommend you get to see him as a matter of urgency if he is holding a seminar near your or go order his book or the CD set of his highly successful seminar, Remember the Ice. Bob, it has been a pleasure and you owe me a glass of Somerset Cider in Long Beach later this year. "

"Hi Bob, It was wonderful to finally meet you at The Language of Sales event in London on Monday after reading Remember the Ice. Your speech brought the book to life and has certainly changed my thinking. It is an inspiration. I am noticing the (k)nots everywhere now! ;-) Very best wishes, Sue"

Tina Jonasen

" Having finally met Bob, and even here in Copenhagen, where he did a SPLENDID speech on "Remember The Ice" yesterday (thanks a million dear), thereafter on a little sightseeing of the town (and the Tivoli Gardens, where it was a joy to see Bob´s interest in all the flowers :-), and then for a late night dinner at my house - I am STUNNED; Such a positive energy is really rare in these days - and I feel SOO privileged to have met Bob IRL thus been able to "suck of his wisdom of positiveness"! Now I will read his book and watch the videos, and I am sure Bob hereafter will have turned my life around, for the more positive, even more than he has already done in just a few hours!! Looking VERY MUCH forward to the coming Scandinavian Tour of "Remember The Ice" in the fall of 2009!!! HIGHLY recommended!! ThinkInNewAreas Ecademy Denmark "

Nancy J. Hodge

"Hi Bob, Your use of the word "Remember" is very powerful. Would we as a nation remembered the Alamo, The Maine, Pearl Harbor and recently 911 if the words Don't forget" were used instead of "Remember"? Your story is a fine reminder that seclecting the right word can make a change people will "Rermember"! Sincerely, Nancy J. "

"Bob Nicoll is a true professional. His results reflect his work ethic. Thanks to Bob I have reached heights in my business and coaching I never thought possible. I coach people on how to make more empowering food choices. This used to be a challenge for my clients until I started using Bob's techniques. Rather than saying you can't eat that food, I focus on what they can eat. The difference has been night and day. Thank you Bob for being one of the most positive influences in my life, Daniel Maccarone "

"I believe that communication is a learned skill. Some people are born with it and few people have an empowered point of view in communication. What Bob Nicoll does is to help you unfold and articulate your message with the clarity. I have got to know Bob; he is the most generous, humble, kind, person I have ever come across in recent days. Bob, I am honoured to be part of your network and we are looking forward in welcoming you in Europe. Highly recommended!"

Solveig McCormick

"Bob and I started communicating a while back. I became interested in his book and was able to get one recently. Last night I turned the last page with a sigh of satisfaction and a sense of anticipation. He leaves you with exercises to do at the end that I know will be very worthwhile to complete. So I am looking forward to getting into those. Since reading what Bob has to say, my word choice awareness has increased dramatically and I hope, for the better. Certainly I am aware of writing in a more graceful style. Thank you Bob for enriching my communicative experience. I would reccomend your book to all. Sincerely Solveig"

"I was introduced to Bob by Martin Dewhurst after a conversation about the importance of language and the power of the messages we constantly give ourselves. Bob lives and breathes powerful articulation and has now turned this into a form to share with others through his 'Remember the Ice' programs and products. Bob himself is brimming with character, engaging, enthusiastic and highly supportive to those lucky enough to connect with him. In one word: contagious!! Thank you Bob."

"There are moments in one's life that can only be recognized as FATE. Fate is capricious and fickle but she can also be fortuitous and such is the case with Bob Nicoll. From the very second I was conscious of Bob, I was mesmerized by his voice, his message and his body of knowledge. I was researching information regarding Dr. IVan Misner, CEO and founder of BNI for an upcoming interview, when I came across an article and recording of Bob Nicoll. It seems these two are linked at the hip, BNI officials, business associates and longtime friends. All I can say is that in that moment, I wanted to interview BOTH of them Not only is Bob a paradigm shifter but he is a wealth of 'networking knowledge' and a BNI Encylopedia. He is one of the most helpful individuals I know and I know a lot. Bob's Remember the ICE program will get under your skin very quickly. You will notice yourself hesitating in midsentence to ask yourself " Is this what I really want to say?" Bob says that there is Power in the Clarity of our Articulation and he should know. As a Psycologist Bob's interest in linguistics and powerful word choices led him to study the Psychophysiology of Words. With a voice blessed for Radio and Public Speaking Bob's program is going to sell like gangbusters- BTW.when are you picking up yours? Remember the ICE dot com"
