Tinnitus Can Certainly Cause Skepticism
Tinnitus can affect people in many different ways but, in my opinion the most common symptom among most tinnitus sufferers is skepticism. Because there is no proven cure for tinnitus many sufferers search endlessly for anything that will alleviate the constant annoying ringing.
And, what happens is, these same people grow more and more skeptical every day because almost nothing helps. Invariably though, many of them shell out thousands of dollars for medicines, therapies, procedures and even homeopathic remedies that have little to no effect.
Recently I received a very nasty email from a lady who wanted to let me know that she was furious with my online tinnitus self-help program. Even though she went into the program with nothing to lose and everything to gain, she felt that because the program didnít instantly cure her that I should refund her tuition. I did.
You must know however, that sheíd only had the information in her hands for two days before demanding a refund. Not only did she not bother to work through the program at all, she completely dismissed the idea that it could possibly help her.
Whatís the basis of this program that she had enrolled in? Well, itís based on the concept that what you focus on expands. If you focus constantly on your tinnitus then youíll get more tinnitus. If you focus on what you truly want out of life, like happiness and success, youíll get more of that. And, while that may seem quite vague, this concept has helped many people to alleviate the suffering and put them on the fast tract to healing.
Where did this concept come from? I learned it from others. In fact, I learned it from some very intelligent and successful people who in turn learned it from others who came before them. Did it help me? Absolutely! In less than two years I went from complete manic depression and endless victimization to living a completely fulfilling and tinnitus free life.
But, the hardest part about this program is that it takes work. Inner work. And, thatís why many people do not believe in it. Because of the inherent skepticism of many tinnitus patients they simply cannot allow themselves to believe that such a transformation is possible. And, yet Iím living proof that it is. But, most people would say that if itís not an instant cure, what good is it?
Well, I hate to burst your bubble but, there is no cure for tinnitus. Thatís not to say that no has been cured but, there is absolutely no scientific evidence that there is a proven cure. Yet, the funny part is, many people are still willing to spend thousands of dollars trying to cure the symptoms of tinnitus and to get rid of that incessant ringing. I too, went through that period. In fact, I spent well over ten thousand dollars on various pills, treatments and something called tinnitus retraining therapy.
As a result, I too was skeptical when I first began learning what real healing is. Itís a process that I had to go through and in many ways I am still going through. And, even though my tinnitus is no longer a problem, I still have other areas of my life that need healing. And, without the information that was shared with me such healing would not be possible.
Thatís why I now offer my program to others. Because part of my healing process in life is to share the same information thatís helped me with anyone I can. So, I use the internet to help me do it. Everyday I put myself and my reputation on the line by offering people the opportunity to learn something that might make their tinnitus better and make their lives more enjoyable.
Do I make promises that my program will work? Yes, I do. But, that doesnít mean you can work through the entire process in just two days. It took me the better part of seven years to learn how to be the person I am now.
Based on my personal experience I would caution anyone who thinks that they can heal overnight. Thatís what creates skepticism. Weíve learned from our environment to want instant results. Well, my response to that way of thinking is thisÖ If every thing in life came easy, just exactly what would you learn?
