Mindset

I recently read about a clinical case.It was about a patient who smoked regularly and slept while sucking at a pacifier in mouth.He went to a therapist thinking that a session of hypnosis was needed for him to get out of these habit.The therapist knew that hypnosis wasn’t going to work out based on the data gathered in previous similar studies.But he did it anyways to put his client’s mind at ease.

Surprisingly,it worked! Keeping aside the controversial debate on the effectiveness of hypnosis,this case shows that the patient’s belief in a cure regardless of the evidence that backed it outweighed the therapist’s expertise and previous established case studies.Thus,what patient believed mattered more to the treatment than what therapist’s experience said would work.

Power of belief can turn even poison into medicine.No matter how good your current treatment is,if you don’t believe in it,then you’re bound to lose.But if you take every hardship in life as a blessing in disguise,you’ll be the winner of all.
