    Hi Cal
    I am a Hypnotherapist from Canada, certified a few years ago. Somewhere in my learning your name came up. I have been watching your podcasts, not in any particular order and cannot tell you how much I enjoy them. Thank you so much for providing the first class information that you do.
    You have provided me with so many answers to questions I myself have had.
    I have a question of my own if you don’t mind. This field I believe I was born to do. It is everything i am good at all rolled up into one beautiful package. Unfortunately I am unable to get going at full speed. Knowing what I know it is very frustrating for me. It seems to be a cross between confidence and deserving. When I put on my ‘go’ cap, the voice says ‘you’re not good enough.’ I know I am good at it and will make great advances if only I could get started. Do you have any simple perception change hints for this area? I am so in my head nothing is working for me.

    Thank You kindly

    “When I put on my ‘go’ cap, the voice says ‘you’re not good enough.’ I know I am good at it and will make great advances if only I could get started. Do you have any simple perception change hints for this area? I am so in my head nothing is working for me.”

    Suzanne, if I may offer a suggestion: let go of the need to believe that “you are good at it.”
    People think that if only they could replace the voice that tells them “you’re not good enough” with the opposite “you are good enough”, then the problem will be solved and they will have confidence.  But trying to believe that you are good at something before there is any real-world basis for that belief is the problem which keeps many people stuck.  I think that is just replacing an irrelevant delusion with another seemingly more “positive” delusion.  Why would I call that a delusion?  Because if you aren’t doing the work there’s no rational basis for assuming that you’re good at doing the work.  You might be or you might not be — in fact if you’re like any beginner in any field you will probably be pretty bad to begin with.  Oh well.  Just do it and see what happens.  Then keep on doing it, changing how you do it based on feedback, and see what happens then.  Forget being good enough or not, it is irrelevant and unknowable until you do it.   Even if someone were to successfully convince themselves that “I just know I am good” before actually doing it, they are just setting themselves up for ignoring negative feedback and being blind to failures (areas of improvement).  So here is a perceptual change shift for you: stop believing that you need to believe in yourself before you do something.  Lose all prior “knowing” of how good you will be at something, and it becomes easier to actually do that something in the spirit of learning, helping others, while having fun.

    Suzanne you sound so much like me hun. I know I’m good at this and will be great once I get going. I was top of my class and have a true faith and confidence in what Hypnotherapy can achieve. What I don’t have is confidence in myself because I have a fear of failure. I have just purchased Cal’s 7th Path package and am going to work on myself for the rest of this year so that next year I can get going in the field I love so much.

    Thank you Cal and team for creating such a wonderful opportunity for people like us as well as the 1% and other highly trained “Hypnothyropotists” These podcasts that you give freely of yourselves are helping to answer so many questions for so many of us and for myself they are actually affirming so much that I have learned previously and questioned. This all compounds to give me a better idea on where I am going and what I need to do. You really have no idea what it does for me.

    One day I am hoping that I will get to the US and attend one of your amazing courses so that I can meet you all face to face and thank you personally.

    Who knows Cal, maybe I can become an Aussie 1% 🙂

    Thank you again Cal, Heather, Elronn and team

    I have no idea who “Heather” is!!! I’m sorry about that MEREDITH 🙂

    Hello Suzanne – Thanks for leaving a comment and question. I’m a bit late responding because I am busy teaching the Banyan Hypnosis Certification Super Course right now.

    I’m so glad to hear that you have found the website and have also found that the videos are useful for you.

    Where I hear about situation like yours I think that either the training that (A) you have received up to this point has been insufficient, OR (B) there is a fear inside of you, and no amount of training in techniques and process will be enough to get you started. OR, it could be a combination of both.

    You need to do some soul searching here. What is your best assessment of your situation, is it most likely A, B or both? If you need more training then watching these videos is an excellent start. But in many cases you will need to eventually get to a training course. Of course I recommend that you choose a 5-PATH trainer (Certified Professional Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy Instructor) such as Celeste Hackett or myself. You can also go to and look through the trainers to see if there is someone nearby.

    If you believe that there is something inside you holding you back then I suggest that you find a 5-PATHers to start working on make the change that you need to get started in our wonderful profession. Consider this work that you do with a 5-PATH hypnotherapist part of your training. You will be glad you did. That hypnotist will also be able to teach you 7th Path Self-Hypnosis, so that you can continue to improve over time and work on any future issues that can come up in your life.
    If you are not able to see a 5-PATH Hypnotherapist, I suggest that you get the 7th Path Self-Hypnosis program on CDs.

    I hope you will continue to enjoy and utilize these hypnosis training videos. Please tell your friends.

    With you on the Path,
