My name is Darrell Zecha. I live in Portland OR and I work in a frozen foods warehouse. My goal for using hypnosis was to become more motivated. Before I was always happy, in fact I’ve always been a happy person. I had a great job and was working days, but about a year and a half ago management came in and they put my department on nights. So now I work all night and I had split days off. It’s the kind of job that you just don’t walk away from because you’re not happy. At first it was great because a change in pace is always nice, but after about 4 months reality just set in. I thought: I don’t have 2 days in a row off, I work nights, I don’t have a life and I’m already single.
The night shift really started bringing me down. It got to the point that on my days off I would get off at 7:30 in the morning, go home and go to bed and then would have to be back to work at 11:00 at night. When you have split days off you really can’t plan anything. It got to the point I was just staying in bed all the time because I felt I had no reason to get up even though there are lots of reasons.
My ex-wife had called me up and asked if I wanted to come over for dinner and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get up and go over there or stay in bed and sleep. To be honest with you, it was a nice day but I had no motivation to get up and go so I told her I wasn’t feeling very good and I couldn’t make it. It wasn’t just her I was doing that to, it was everybody. My house was also a mess because I didn’t care.
I have a son who I have been raising on my own and with me working nights, I started noticing a difference in him from not having any supervision. This was not a good thing and I wasn’t sure what to do about it. It got to the point where I would come home and sleep about 12 hours during the day and then I would get up and go to work. But on my days off I would also sleep all day and all night and all the next day until I went back to work. This went on for over 3 months. I had thought to myself I can’t live this way. I could quit my job, but I can’t do that. I just didn’t have motivation to do anything. What I decided to do was call Positive Changes Hypnosis.
I chose Positive Changes Hypnosis after seeing an ad in the Oregonian. I had been looking into doing hypnosis for a couple of months before I saw the ad. I thought now was a good time to call and see what happens. First I went to the website to see what Positive Changes had to offer. I thought what the heck, the evaluation is free- I’ll give it a shot and see what happens.
I noticed the changes in about 4 weeks. One day as I was driving home after a hypnosis session, I felt different. I don’t know what it was but I just felt different. I started thinking about all the good things that were going to start happening and these cold chills started running through me and it just went on for about 10 seconds.
Things have changed now. I do have 2 days off in a row which has helped. Now I’m going to work and I’m smiling. I’m looking forward to going and making some money so I can pay my bills. I know I got those 2 days off in a row which really helps but the really big thing I’ve noticed is how happy I am because I know I don’t have to stay there now.
I don’t mind my job so much anymore because I realized that when you work nights that you have all day long to pursue other possibilities. I’ve even thought about going back contracting, I think I would do better at that now. I don’t have that time slot taken away from me anymore and I realize that I can adjust my sleep schedule.
There was an evening before work, about 2-3 weeks after I finished my program at Positive Changes that I was talking to this guy and he was just complaining about how he hated his job and that he wasn’t happy. I kept looking at him and thinking why are you saying that. I then went into work and my motivational music was in my head and I just started working whereas before I thought just like my friend. I hadn’t tried anything to change my behaviors before I went to Positive Changes.
Since going to Positive Changes, I am now dating again. It’s going good. I’ve been single for a while but I think that now that I have a house, which was my ultimate goal, I want to find someone to share it with. I am enjoying decorating it. I now have better credit whereas before I didn’t know what I was doing.
I told my family about the Positive Changes program and they are all happy about it. I have also told a friend about it who is now using hypnosis for pain relief. I believe that my results are going to be permanent and anytime I want to relax I just listen to my personal CDs. The most important benefit I have received from Positive Changes Hypnosis is happiness! It’s my biggest goal in life, I don’t care how much money I make as long as I make ends meet. My success has been great. I’m really happy.
I do believe these results will be permanent. In fact, I’ve even been thinking of it maybe as a career for myself. I’m involved in some new activities and I’m doing some more studying. I would recommend Positive Changes to anybody.
