I KNOW I'm in Heaven!

Written by Mike Banks Valentine

I've recently completed an extensive training course to become a Certified Hypnotherapist (C.Ht) in a program that emphasizes a connection between everything we think, say or do in spiritual terms. I'd like to suggest that there is a kind of Zen of business at work in every aspect of our business lives as well. Those that approach their business life with spiritual zest and a driven faith that they will succeed will very often find themselves atrepparttar top of market in their chosen fields.

The firm belief and understanding that you KNOW this is what you are supposed to be doing with your life is something that business giants possess far more often thanrepparttar 117921 rest ofrepparttar 117922 working world. There are secretaries that realize this early in their career. These arerepparttar 117923 secretaries that become Executive Assistant and Corporate Executive Secretary. They think they are in Heaven.

Janitors that KNOW end up being Building Superintendents and Maintenance Engineers running sprawling office complexes, twenty story buildings and shopping centers with a staff of janitors and facilities engineers working for them and believe they are in Heaven.

There are those that KNOW when it comes to business principles that they are intended to operate small businesses. This type of entrepreneur has an innate sense of how to make a business run smoothly and effortlessly with unmatched joy and spirited energy. These masters of success are living in Business Heaven.

Those that KNOW are to be envied and studied so we can learnrepparttar 117924 path to business enlightenment ourselves. Now let's return to my opening andrepparttar 117925 Hypnotherapy Training. In working with clients struggling with difficult personal issues, phobias, addictions and past traumas during my training I watched in awe as they reach a KNOWING about their issue that finally helps them to conquer their demons and make meaningful change.
