Perhaps the most amazing thing about working for John Morgan Seminars and traveling the country and doing 2 hour Hypnosis programs for weight loss and smoking cessation is that they actually work. Years ago I taught, in my hypnosis classes, of the superiority of private sessions because they were tailored to the individual. Basically I thought that large scale group hypnosis did not work and was essentially a rip off.
I was wrong.
For some people I believe group hypnosis programs work better than private sessions because of the added leverage of public commitment. Maybe, in some or even most cases, individual sessions might work even better, but I’ve discovered that when done right, large scale, group hypnosis does work. I get feedback about it all the time. Like just last week, we were putting on a program at the convention center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A few hours before the seminar we were setting up the room and a gentleman stuck his head in the door and said Hello. He told us he’d been to our event in Parkersburg, WV, a few weeks earlier and was now 20 days smoke free and didn’t even have any urges. He was here in Myrtle Beach at a convention for his industry and when he saw our sign felt compelled to come over and talk to us. He was extremely grateful and just wanted us to know. He said it was the best $69.95 he’d ever spent.
How cool is that?
Fact is our percentage of successful quitters is dizzingly high. I am sure the weight loss folk have a tougher time of achieving their goals but they do well too. What’s great about it is that for most people attending these things, they have little or no prior experience with this sort of change work or even this sort of thinking. It really is quite revolutionary for them.
Credit goes to John Morgan for creating these most excellent 2 hour seminars. They utilize a variety of techniques to assist in people getting the change they desire… from traditional hypnosis to Ericksonian patterns to NLP anchoring techniques. I met John years ago at a Dave Dobson “Funshop” and he really put Dave’s lessons to work, especially that “Pebble Kicking” thing we talked about a couple of weeks ago.
Me, I get to travel around, feel good about helping people, and stay in nice hotels like the one pictured. Plus, I can now order at Applebees without the need of a menu.
Does life get any better than that?
