Teaching has been a lifelong passion of mine, one that I have carried into my adult life. I have been a professional educator for nearly 20 years dealing with teenagers at the high school level. A job that I truly love. But it actually started much earlier than that for me, I was a trainer in one of the company’s I worked for as a young salesman. I was quite successful and worked with new sales associates preparing them to enter the field. That is actually where I picked up the nickname “Yoda”.
The lessons that I would teach my students would be ones that would impact the rest of their lives. I believe that we all have a little Yoda inside of us.
We all have some special talent or skill that can help someone else out, so why not do so?
It is so rewarding to be able to help your fellow man.
The late great incredible Zig Ziglar was known to have said over and over again, “you can get everything you want in life if you just help enough people get what they want.”
That phrase has always inspired me, as a matter of fact, it caused me to make some of the career choices I have made.
As a professional hypnotist, one of the most common issues that we deal with is people desiring to quit smoking. After all we all know that smoking is not good for us, and if you have ever smoked then you know just how hard it is to quit on your own.
But like any other habit, your success at quitting smoking is primarily determined by your own personal commitment. That’s why whenever a client walks into my office for a quitting smoking session the first question that I ask them is why are you here? Of course, they always attempt to tell me because they want to quit smoking. But do they really want to quit, or has someone else told them they should quit? You see there is a big difference, and it is all about motivation.
If they themselves desire to quit smoking then the therapy will be effective and long lasting success is inevitable. But if someone else convinced them they should come for the session and it is not their true desire to quit, and they are doing it simply to appease someone else then the results will not be nearly as successful or long-lasting.
You see the hypnotist cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do, at least not in the long range scope of things. You have to be committed to the decision, and willing to follow the treatment plan. Otherwise, don’t waste your time or your money.
Well as we begin our journey here together, I must say that I am glad that you have found your way here to visit with me.
I will assure you of one thing, there aren’t many people on the face of God’s Green Earth that think the way that I do, and I will from time to time allow you the reader to look into my heart, my soul, and the inner workings of both, but buckle your seatbelts, and might as well enjoy the ride.
