I'm always amazed at how powerful gratitude really is, and when we can use it in a way - as a catalyst - to empower sessions with our clients we can help them achieve greater success not only for what they originally came in for, but for every aspect of their lives. I use the techniques we discuss in this episode all the time and am so happy to be able to share them here!

Thank you Cal and Erika for a few unique perspectives on gratitude. I especially appreciate different sections where you mentioned the client giving you all the credit (and therefore all the power for long term success of the sessions rather than them having the power!). Some interesting perspective there! When I have a client who gives me too much credit for their progress (especially without recognizing their own courage and hard work in session), I do what Cal suggests- reminding them that I'm the guide on the path, but they are the ones who did the work to transform. I like how that empowers them to continue their journey!

Thank you Cal & Erika for another interesting & helpful episode.
Erika, great tips on what to say to those clients. I've been fortunate enough to receive gratitude & it has been difficult sometimes to actually have the client believe it was mostly up to them, even after telling them. Your example & advice is perfect. I've written it out and will now go practice with Miss Pillow until I get it down pat. ????
I just love the attitude of gratitude!
It is so true as you both said, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and if we really look, most of us can see the positive in what was originally perceived as a negative event. And Cal, your comments on foresight is powerful too. In fact, if I had decided to continue with my psychological internship instead of becoming a Hypnosis professional, my theoretical leaning was toward positive psychology which places a strong emphasis on gratitude (empirical evidence on it's efficacy) and resilience, which is really all about foresight in my opinion. Your story was a prime example.
I'm really Looking forward to the upcoming teleconference on AR too Cal.
As usual, thanks for all you do.
