Slow and Steady or Quantum Leap?

Slow and Steady or Quantum Leap?

Life may be good, but still not quite everything you want it to be. Or, life could be far less than you had hoped for by this point in your life. Either way, you want to change and transform yourself so that your life can become different and better.. What's the best way to make that happen?

What I'm about to share with you is based on Neuroscience, Quantum Physics, and Psychology, as well as real life experiences.

Slow Change

We've all experienced slow, gradual change. Many times it's in the negative direction. If you've been eating healthy and then, one day, you decide to grab fast-food for expediency, you may then find that you grow more and more inclined to reach for fast-food until it has become your staple. 

If you've been in the routine of saving money every month and then, one month, you decide to "treat" yourself and it felt so good you slowly, but surely, cease saving on a monthly basis.

And, this happens in so many areas of your personal and professional life.

This can work in the positive direction, but most people find it hard to discipline themselves and create the mindset that will help them achieve their transformation. People report that they make, "one step forward and two steps back."

Quantum Leap

Then there is the Quantum Leap. A Quantum Leap is described as:

An abrupt transition from one discrete state to another..  A transition from one energy level to another which appears discontinuous as one "jumps" from one energy level to another in a few nanoseconds, or less. The shift is quick and profound.

Studies have shown that people who have strongly entrenched beliefs and then recognize they are wrong will quickly change and hold their new belief with even deeper conviction. Whereas, people who gradually change a belief are likely to vacillate easily. 

So, what does this mean for you? People go to therapists, counselors, coaches, and mentors to help them create change. Many times, the sessions will last for many months and even years. Progress can be slow and tedious. The results can be less than optimal. 

Let me give you an example. Here is information which was published in Psychotherapy Magazine regarding trauma, like PTSD:

  • Psychotherapy — 38% recovery after 600 sessions (approx. 11 1/2 yrs @ 1 session per week)
  • Behavior Therapy — 72% after 22 sessions (approx. 6 months @ 1 session per week)
  • Dynamic Visualization — 93% recovery after 6 sessions (Approximately 1 1/2 weeks)

Now, imagine if something like trauma can have such extraordinary results in such a concentrated amount of time using Dynamic Visualization, then what can be done for things, like:

  • Fear of rejection when cold-calling and networking
  • The feelings of self-doubt and lack of confidence
  • Feelings of not being worthy or good enough
  • Fear of success and fear of failure...and so much more!

Wouldn't it be interesting to find out?

#2 My dear friend, no, it doesn't. The external ones are the ones that were not facilitated with intention, so the results are left to chance. Just as an external traumatic event can cause a person to make positive changes, it can just as easily cause them to make negative changes. One woman I helped had found her 10-year-old son hung himself in his closet. Previous to this, she had been an outgoing, loving, fun person. Afterward, she became so negative and depressed that she contemplated suicide several times. A tragic result. I was able to help her become the person she was before the traumatic event.

The trigger for her to seek help was that she had seen a therapist, but the thoughts of suicide continued. She had two other children and knew she needed to be here for them.

Most people who seek my help have exhausted all the typical resources and are open to a resource that may be new to them. In articular, anyone who wants their life to be more; more happy, more fulfilling, more successful, etc.

The best Quantum shifts are facilitated, meaning, the person knows they want to make a massive change. The only way to facilitate this is by bypassing the traditional methods which use the conscious mind and getting into the unconscious mind where all out beliefs, thoughts, memories, emotions, etc. reside and are the real determiners of our life. The unconscious mind holds all our potential and possibilities. That's the place where Dynamic Visualization is so powerful!

#4 Yes, Franci, traumatic and dramatic events are the impedes for quick change and they're the kind that are life-changing. This is what happens with PTSD, both military and civilian. Death of a loved one, one's own death and recovery, tragic accidents, etc., can all create a Quantum shift in beliefs.

Seems quantum leap would have a greater impact and be longer lasting. Some events in one's life force a quantum leap because a slow and steady approach is not plausible.
