Changing Ideas About Work

R. T. had a Dianetics Counseling Session and had this to say about it: "I was amazed how Dianetic counseling lead to new realizations related to work. I know I need to work with many people vs. being sequestered as an owner/operator in a retail business. I thrive when I am able to move about within an organization establishing multiple communication lines. I enjoy managing projects through the planned cycle of action. Everyone should try Dianetic Counseling as you never know what insight you may gain if you don't."

Understanding the Problems of Work

We had another super successful Personal Efficiency Course last Saturday!
This is what our graduates had to say:

"It was good to gain further certainty on this information. I will be able to communicate with my co-workers better and have more control of my tools at work. I also need to use the tools to handle and get rid of exhaustion. I see that it really works, simply and effectively."

"I know how to apply the things I learned in this film (The Problems of Work Film) and it will really help me make my life easier and it's really important to use this information."

"The section of the film about the 'Doctrine of a Stable Datum' helped me to understand why people will believe things that are actually not true and don't really work in their lives (such as "All men are bad"). They just picked that as a stable idea and have been continuing to use that idea. It really clears up a lot about how people act sometimes!"

Dianetics Making Sense

A. T. finished the Dianetics Book and Lectures course. He said "This was awesome to finally read Dianetics and learn about the subject for myself. I really liked seeing where Mr. Hubbard was coming from when he developed the subject. It's funny how a lot of the concepts make sense but at the same time seem outrageous. Maybe that's why it took man so long to figure it out."

The Simplicity of Facing

J. M. had a win while practicing confronting [the action of being able to face]. This is what he said: "I had a win on confronting. I realized that being there comfortably doesn't require thought. It's such a simplicity but resolves a lot of complexity. It's simply beautiful!"

New Life Improvement Course: How to Achieve Self-Confidence

Are you directing your life? Become more certain of yourself. Gain Self-Confidence!

Self-confidence is something most people would like to have more of, but aren't sure how to get it. Did you every feel more certain of yourself in the past? Would you like to raise your self-confidence?

To increase self-confidence, you have to understand what reduces it. If you know why this happens, you can reverse the situation and rebuild your self-esteem.

"This was one of the most powerful courses I've ever taken. Other courses helped me handle specific parts of my life, but any of that can be blocked when part of the mind says 'you can't do anything.' The course helped me confront that part of the mind. Now I know what to do." V.J.

Come by and see us to sign up for this amazing course!

Learning to Handle Pain in Life

C.W. finished the course for the book Dianetics: Evolution of a Science. She had these wins: "This course has cleared up so many questions I've had in the past regarding the workings of the mind. I discovered the causes of aberration and essentially, the cause of the downfall of people and society as a whole. Along with that, my eyes have been opened to the way in which these problems can be eradicated. With this course, I will be more aware of the causes of my pain in life, and how I can overcome it, and help overcome the pain of others. If used correctly, and spread to others, the knowledge contained in this course can basically help society survive, rather than be destroyed."

Gaining Hope For A Beautiful Future

J.H. finished the Command of Theta lecture series. She said about it: "Mr. Hubbard continues to clearly define the capabilities and nature of human spirt, and the unthinking existence of the material universe, in terms of me and my friends and my body (and theirs), and pretty soon that material universe just fades into less and less importance and I get more and more hope for a truly endless and beautiful future. In fact, knowledge is power, isn't it? My thanks to Mr. Hubbard for the data and the Mission for making it available to study."

Thinking In A More Direct Way

J.H. completed the Technique88/Source Of Life Energy book and lectures course. She said this about the course: "Mr. Hubbard really goes all out in this book and lectures course, and I found my own considerations and thoughts becoming much simpler and more direct. And I'm less hung up on the body and this lifetime as an "end" in itself. I love the idea of disagreeing now - never really understood what this meant before. Sure makes the environment look a bit batty though! Thanks Mr. Hubbard and the Palo Alto Mission."
