Victoria’s Story Around 24 years ago, Victoria found herself in a tough spot. As a former stockbroker, she was juggling a stressful job and making decent money, but deep down, something didn’t feel right. It was like she had lost touch with her true purpose, and the weight of burnout, stress, depression, and anxiety was taking its toll.
Seeking a solution, Victoria decided to attend a personal development seminar. During the four-day event, she was exposed to various closed eye techniques that encouraged deep introspection and visualization. This experience reignited her interest in self-hypnosis, which she had briefly explored in her younger years through reading books.
The seminar had a transformative effect on Victoria. After having an epiphany, her perspective changed profoundly. As a result, she felt empowered and confident and regained connection with the purpose of her life. She became certified in hypnotherapy in 1999 and created a website for self-help resources to share her newfound knowledge.
As she ventured into this exciting new path, Victoria faced a tough decision. Her employer, where she worked as a stockbroker branch manager, discovered her side business and put her in a challenging position. She had to choose between her well-paying job and her dream of helping others through her self-help business. It wasn’t an easy choice, but Victoria’s determination to follow her passion won the day.
Starting from scratch, she encountered numerous challenges during the initial phase of his self-employment journey. Through the power of her mind and determination, she persisted, utilizing self-hypnosis and meditation to cope with the fears and uncertainties.
At some point, Victoria realized that she had forgotten to use the very tools that led her to this path in the first place. It was a moment of self-awareness that brought her back on track. She resumed her self-hypnosis practices, reignited her dedication, and reconnected deeply with her purpose.
Throughout the process, Victoria never looked back, embracing the challenges and triumphs that came her way. This transformational journey not only revitalized her own life but also allowed her to positively impact the lives of others through her self-help resources. In this episode of Happy and Healthy Mind with Dr. Rozina, Victoria shared how you can use the self-hypnosis and other powerful techniques to release those negative thoughts and blocks, rewire your subconscious mind and achieve your goals and live a fulfilling life as the best version of yourself.
