QC Inner Circle Newsletter – August 2011
Take a look at this image – What do you see? Is this a picture of a young woman or an old lady? The answer is that they are BOTH there.
Have you every been in a heated debate and then an hour into the discussion you realise that your BOTH right?
This kind of thing happens all the time because we often think we know something, and if we think we know something we are not interested in listening to what the other person has to say so we can’t see that they too are right.
In the best selling book, How to Get a Bigger Bite out of Life, George Faddoul says that instead of wasting your time and energy ardently defending what you know, you should take the time to discover what it is that you don’t know.
The image above illustrates why we should always keen an open mind, because the young woman is there in the image and the elderly lady is there too.
Steven Covey says, “Seek first to understand then to be understood”. These are powerful words which go to the heart of what NLP is all about.
In one of my favourite films, Dead Poets Society, the teacher John Keating stands on his desk and proclaims to his students, “I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.”
A valuable life lesson, I’m sure you would agree.
Success Story: Maureen Hamilton
Maureen Hamilton shared her QUIT success story with the QC Seminars team…
My name is Maureen Hamilton and I am a successful Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes Specialist based in Bald Hills in Queensland.
I heard about the Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes business training through my daughter Simone. She sent me a QC Seminars brochure, which promised that I could earn $1,000 a day by helping people to stop smoking.
At first I was very sceptical. But then I had a thought, “Well, what if it’s true?”
I know the devastating effects that smoking can have on a family – my husband died at 47 from lung cancer and heart disease.
Although this was a major tragedy for someone so young to die, it strengthened my resolve to help as many people as I possibly can to live a healthier more prosperous life.
This is why I decided to become the best Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes Specialist I can be… and to be honest it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
Most of my clients have been smoking for years – my oldest client was 76, this just goes to show that it is never too late to quit smoking and change your life for the better.
I’ve been practicing as a Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes since January 2011 and I’ve seen over 120+ clients.
I have trained as a general nurse, midwife and in the areas of mental health and children’s behavioural issues.
When I was doing my nursing training, I learned a very important lesson, “prevention is better than cure”.
It is very empowering to be able to help my clients achieve good health.
Being a part of a network of leading specialists using the most effective process available today to quit cigarettes in 60 minutes… with an astonishing success rate of 97.5% is hugely rewarding. This is a proven system that has worked for thousands of clients.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
A college student challenged a senior citizen, saying it was impossible for their generation to understand his. “You grew up in a different world,” the student said. “Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers…”
Taking advantage of a pause in the student’s litany, the senior citizen said, “You’re right. We didn’t have those things when we were young; so we invented them! What are you doing for the next generation??”
