I love this video. It demonstrates SKILL:
When a person is passionate about what they do, it shows. It shines. Because they learn and practice and get good at it. They take joy and pride in it. They don’t settle for “just ok.” They want more. This man has practiced with his cards. 🙂
This is a mindset I like, because it’s also mine. It shows in the work I do as Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.
In one of my earliest hypnosis trainings, the instructor referred to hypnotherapy as a “Matchbook Profession.” That’s not a compliment. It means you learn it for a buck and it’s a by the numbers affair, involving reading purchased scripts at people. No way, Jose. Perhaps some hypnotherapists are of that mindset and modus operandi, not me. This is an art, and endlessly creative, and there’s always more to learn, which is why I’m drawn to it.
My goal is and always has been, client successes. When a client “wins” (successfully gets his goal), I win. And I’m passionate about winning.
If you’ve tried some other therapies and even some other hypnotherapist or purported NLP practitioner and were not impressed with the results, go for someone more creative, skilled and passionate. You may be awesomely surprised at how quickly life improves for you.
All the best,
