The Courage to Change, The Patience to Grow
(Four essential skills for Personal Freedom)

by Matthew A. Ferguson

This hypnosis/nlp download helps you develop realistic and positive attitudes in a way that is enjoyable and rewarding. It does this by giving you four simple, imaginative, empowering skills that use your memory, imagination and internal resources. You will find yourself both relaxed and empowered. Engage with the skills that are suggested and you will find a new level of motivation and personal growth.

Courage to Change, The Patience to Grow by Matthew Ferguson

These four skills are :-

  • Changing Negative Memories
  • Connect with your strengths and build your resources
  • Creating and Living your Values
  • Creating and Living your Dream

"There are lots of self-help resources and therapies out there, but this one is a must. 'The Courage to Change, Patience to Grow' is all about making positive changes in life, using techniques to tap into the power of your own mind so that you can create a life of meaning, success and happiness. Matthew's years of experience as an NLP and hypnotherapy practitioner and passion for helping people really comes through. It has enabled me to create powerful images of what I want to achieve, and more importantly, why. The simple exercises have helped me connect my goals back to my values, therefore giving more meaning to the changes I want to make and the inner momentum to do what I need to do".
