Are you frustrated reading about Powerful, Covert Hypnotic Persuasion Skills and every time you go to learn anything you immediately get plunged into a world of strange phrases, bizarre buzz words and incomprehensible theory?
I went through the same when I first started to learn about hypnotic persuasion skills. I took hundreds of courses, read thousands of books and even did all the exercises however bizarre they seemed. For over thirty years I dedicated myself to studying all the material that was around and several questions kept coming up:
If these guys are so good at hypnotic persuasion skills why aren't they using these skills to train me in these skills?
If these guys are experts in communication why am I so confused by the content of their books and courses?
Do these guys actually use these skills for anything or are they just making a buck trying to teach them to me?
I discovered some Communication Skills Trainers don't use and often don't know how to use the material they are supposed to be delivering to you.
How frustrated would you be after hundreds of hours of studying not being any further forward in learning how to use language patterns in your personal, professional or social life. And then finding out the people that are delivering the content don't know how to use it themselves?
Some NLP Trainers in an effort to look clever have hyped up and overcomplicated Hypnotic Language Patterns to the point of incomprehensibility. But that's not all. How crazy is it that they try and teach you about brain chemistry, motor neurone functions and advanced grammar when all you want is to learn are persuasive patterns that work?
When you want to watch TV do you want someone to explain electricity, how they transmit and receive pictures over the airwaves and the internal workings of a television set or do you want them to explain the buttons on the remote control and just let you pick some programmes to watch?
Some Hypnosis Trainers have gone so far into the theory of how it works that they have forgotten that there was a reason why you want to learn the material in the first place.
I have spoken with hypnosis trainers who will tell you that you should not use hypnotic tools without first asking permission from the "client". I was banned from an NLP Practice group for just suggesting that you could use these tools for sales and business. I have had a variety of hypnotists and NLPers telling me that I am being irresponsible for teaching this material in case someone "dangerous" gets their hand on it.
But there are some Great Trainers out there
You could spend thousands of dollars and several days sat at the feet of the Covert Persuasion Skills Gurus as they distill their wisdom.
It is not just about the time spent on the course though. If you are going to invest a large sum of money, plus the travel and accommodation you really want to make sure you are getting something valuable. So you need to investigate the trainer and spend time evaluating the course to make sure it is exactly what you need.
To get the best value from any course you need to do some pre-course studying. Then when you come home you have to spend your time integrating all the new knowledge into your life before you lose it through non-use. That means post-course self-coaching.
You can get great results this way, I know, I have done enough of it. I get people regularly spend the time and money with me and they get great results but quite frankly there are only a select few that have the resources and opportunity to learn in this fashion.
