Art of the Possible - Part 2

by Pete Egoscue |  Date Released : 16 Apr 2007

  • Introduction
  • The tendency to want to FIX people.
  • Don’t deny your own ego. Change your beliefs.
  • We’re not negating knowledge, wisdom and experience – change your mind about what is possible.
  • Necessary to learn how to LISTEN.
  • By listening, we will learn that clients know what’s possible and they know what to do (even though they may not have the vocabulary to describe it).
  • Use our wisdom and knowledge to provide a vehicle for client’s inner knowing.
  • Getting past the symptom to the cure – calmness, peace.
  • Moving beyond the illusion of lack.
  • Chicken is the Belief and the Egg is the confirmation of belief.
  • Client must believe that it is possible and that they have WITHIN THEMSELVES all that is needed.
  • “How do you get them to do what you want them to do?”
  • Answer: You allow them to do what they WANT to do.
  • Denying that which we want.
  • The power of thought and belief to shift our physical reality and even our DNA.
  • There is nothing new. There is no original knowledge or thought. It the awareness of what is right in front of us.
  • Nature does not allow a vaccum.
  • Fear can’t be taken away. It must be replaced. Replace fear with a new belief and the art of the possible.
  • Common perception that Time is Valuable –we don’t have enough TIME.
  • The pressure on healthcare professional to conform to the client’s perception of value to their time and effort.
  • Trainer’s perception – “Don’t be limited by what we think is possible in a given amount of time."
  • Find out how much time a client has and fill it with their own wisdom.
  • Don’t establish GOALS – specific achievement measurement benchmarks.
  • Benchmarks postpone the ultimate outcome – to feel better.
  • Dispel the myth of Work Hard = Achieve.
  • “Once I get this, then I can feel better…”
  • Client example. Mary, what’s your ideal weight?
  • Take me back to the last time you weighed that much? -> last time Mary felt her best.
  • She’s trying to recapture that FEELING (life is good, safe, love, etc…) she had when she weighed her ideal weight.
  • Reach the goal without regaining the FEELING -> ultimately, we blame ourselves.
  • Lose our connection. Trainer loses a client.
  • What we want is the FEELING. We have access to that instantly, any moment, right now.
