Surrender: Is It About Giving In…or About Gaining Control?

Friday, February 27th, 2015

It was a question I asked people in my social surroundings, just to learn how they understood this term.

I was surprised at most of the answers:

“I do not want to give up; I am a fighter.”

“Surrender is a method of giving up.”

“I do not know how or why I need to surrender.”

My first impression was that some people don’t understand the real meaning of surrender. I don’t blame them. Just look at Merriam-Webster’sdefinition of surrender:to agree to stop fighting, hiding, resisting, etc., because you know that you will not win or succeed to someone else.”

I don’t know why this term has a mostly negative meaning.

What Constitutes Talent?

I still recall my final year of university with restrained enthusiasm.

I wrote my final paper on a prominent figure whom I admired at the time. I firmly recall a passage from a book loaned to me, which was translated from Italian to English. It said of the person, “He was so talented that even the blind were aware of him.” I felt it was a fitting description for a person of great talent.

That passage has stuck with me for seventeen years, etched in to my mind as a measure of an individual’s influence on the world.

Overcome any Obstacle

“In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the King’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded.

5 Important Reasons Why Hypnotherapy Works

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Every year, various mental disorders affect millions of people around the world. Anxiety, for instance, may be experienced as only a brief episode occurring only once. For others, however, this anxiety may recur many times, thus impacting lives quite significantly.

Whatever the disorder, it can become a very debilitating condition – especially when left untreated. In recent years, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have slowly become recognized as potentially effective for people with such disorders. This has led to many people in California, Adelaide, and other places to seek out this treatment as an option.

Only licensed practitioners may use hypnotherapy on patients, of course – with the latter being encouraged to see their physicians before approaching a hypnotherapist. Courses to learn the practice and later become licensed are offered in a good number of places, such as Yorkshire and Adelaide, to name a few.
