An Interview with Duane Krip

Q: How did the creation of the Personal Empowerment System come about?

A: To answer this question, it’s probably best to share with you a defining moment and resulting compelling story that brought me to where I am today, mentoring people like you to break free of the non-conscious shackles that keep you from realizing your full potential.

I felt from an early age that ‘Something was not quite right but I couldn’t put my finger on it’. This feeling gnawed at me throughout my high school and university years and followed me into my corporate life.

I was working in advertising. This feeling began to scream loud when I advanced to the position of Sales Manager. I was in the position I wanted to be in. All opportunity lay ahead. Yet, the truth was, I did not feel at home in the position. I hid it from everyone especially from myself.

Week in and week out, I felt like I was on a house of cards and everything was about to collapse. I sat in this ‘holding pattern’ for many years. I slowly became angry and bitter. My mind blamed everyone: my boss, my staff, and my industry. And I started to lose confidence in myself!

In 2009 my house of cards collapsed. Despite leading our sales team to the largest sales volume in the history of the company, I learned that I would not be leading this team in the new fiscal year. I moved to a ‘newly created’ lateral position a place I did not want to be!

“Something was not quite right and I could not put my finger on it!”

I was three months into my new position as Manager of Client Development. I sat in a meeting room across the table from a new advertising client. We were to develop an advertising plan. He facilitated a revolutionary style of personal development. He explained that he could pin point what was holding a person back and help them resolve it.

He said these words, “I can help people who feel that something is not quite right in their life but can’t put their finger on it!”

Those words shot like a bullet into my being and ricocheted off every bone in my body. Two days later, “in the name of research”, I had my first session.

New insights rocked my world and changed the course of my life!

I discovered I was carrying a silent saboteur; a deep seated fear of failure with a belief that failure was bad. It was rooted in an encounter with my first grade teacher who had been critical of my written assignment. This ‘occurrence’ was the birthplace of disempowering views on failure; sabotaging beliefs born from a mistaken interpretation of a situation. Like a virus infecting a computer hard drive, this ‘program’ ran outside of my awareness, hidden in my non-conscious. It ruled my life for the next 36 years.

I awakened to the realization that those negative, hurtful, painful emotions I had experienced were a mirage! I clearly saw my fears, anxiety, and sadness for what they really were; an illusion. In that moment of understanding those beliefs and fears about failure disintegrated. I was instantly relieved!

A weight was lifted. Something had shifted in me. I just didn’t know what. Heck, prior to the session I didn’t even know I had a fear of failure. I didn’t have a clue it was one of many programs holding me back. I now felt lighter; my shoulders felt relived of a massive load. I felt energized and free.

I dove deep into learning everything I could about how this guided introspective method worked. I traveled into the United States to attend courses on this method. The clearing I experienced continued to deepen with every additional session I had. The freedom I felt exploded. Every session unearthed another silently sabotaging program. Each was systematically smashed and dissolved. I have lost count of how many unsupportive and disempowering beliefs, vows and concepts that were running in my non-conscious mind. If I were to guess, it would be several hundred!

Q: What kind of results did you experience?

A: I am awestruck by the shifts I have made. I look back to the way I was and compared to who I am today. The difference is like comparing night to day. I am present, grounded and centered. I am living from a place of authenticity.

Increased Focus and Productivity:

In the days, weeks and months following that first session I noticed I had more focus that allowed me to accomplish more in my work day. Every task I performed flowed easily to completion. The compulsion driving me to my desk at 6a.m. was gone and I accomplished more in fewer hours.

Anxiety and Stress Disappear:

The heavy sense of impending doom I wore like a thick black cloak dropped away. I no longer felt anxiety over what tomorrow would bring. I showed up at work each day and lived in the moment; doing whatever needed to be done without concern for yesterday or what may or may not happen tomorrow.

Positive Working Relationships:

The more clearing sessions I did the faster and more progressive the changes were in and around me. The most notable was the relationship with my superior. In the past, our points of view rarely matched up. I would dig in my heels. He would dig in his. Our constant head butting fell away. We were no longer at odds.

Growth of Income:

My new shifted being gave me an authentic confidence which changed my client interactions. I conducted more business with greater ease. Sales became easier. Clients were willing to give me more business. My personal book of business shot through the roof. My earnings shot through the roof too! I made more money that I ever did as Sales Manager!

Physical Changes:

For 20 years I maintained a weight of 255 lb. plus or minus 5lb. I often suffered knee and lower back pain. My weight dropped. My suits hung on my like flour sacks. I could barely keep up with the alterations. I lost 60 lbs and my waist size dropped from 44 inches to 36 inches. As the weight disappeared so did the issues with my knees and lower back.

Freedom from Alcohol:

For 15 years, the first thing I did when I arrived home from work was to pour myself a drink. Rye whisky mixed with Pepsi was my potion. I justified the after-work drink as medicinal. I always limited myself to just one. So, to keep to my ‘just one’ promise, I used the biggest glass I could find an 18 ounce beer mug! On weekends I would treat myself to two or three tasty treats per day! The need and desire for an after work drink dissolved. In time my desire to ‘have a few’ on weekends also vanished.

Q: What are your credentials?

A: As I deepened in my own clearing, my fear of failure and the notion that failure was bad vanished. I grew to understand that I had not been realizing my full potential. For the first time in my life I was free of the fear of the unknown and I saw the clear direction. I attained my Conscious Coaching Certification with The Conscious Company Worldwide as well as a practitioner accreditation with internationally acclaimed mind-body clearing expert, Brandon Bays.

Using the tools instrumental to my own clearing, I went on to develop the Personal Empowerment System. My slogan says it all: “Catapulting YOU to the next level in Career, Income and Life!” If you haven’t read my book, “Slay Your Silent Saboteurs -Unleash your Unlimited Potential” you can download it Free here.

Q: Who do you work with?

A: I have worked with people from every rung on the corporate and professional ladder: CEO’s, managers, sales people, psychologists, teachers, massage therapists, secretaries, blue collar, white collar workers and home makers. All had issues to clear; programs that were not of their making, silent saboteurs covertly holding them back from realizing their full potential. The results are nothing short of amazing; clear and focused in their careers with a new found confidence to pursue their goals and dreams.

Q: How are you different from a personal coach or life coach?

A: Before I answer this, you first need to know what it is NOT.

  • It is NOT a training program.
  • It is NOT a Life Coaching program.
  • It is NOT a motivational program.
  • It is NOT hypnotherapy or psychotherapy of any kind.

The core of many of these traditional programs are about heaping on more theories and methodologies; adding information to your knowledge base or giving you a new way to look at things. This System is NOT that!

If fact, it is the exact opposite! The foundation of the Personal Empowerment System is deconstruction and elimination. We drill down to the source cause of your hold backs and eliminate them!

Q: How are my subconscious “programs” sabotaging my career?

A: In my book “Slay your Silent Saboteurs – Unleash your Unlimited Potential and Thrive!” I explain how the writing of many hundreds of disempowering programs into your non conscious mind occurred at a very young age. The reason most every personal development program falls short of complete success is they fail to address and eliminate the root problem, which is your unsupportive non conscious programs.

While your thinking conscious mind has every intention, want and desire to attain your next level of success, unacknowledged fears, beliefs and unhealthy conditionings lurk in the depths of your non-conscious mind. These Silent Saboteurs continually pull the rug out from under you. How many times have you gone thru a personal development program, seen a motivational speaker or hired a coach where at first you feel great! Then as the days and weeks wear on, you slide back into your old patters! The reason: those hidden programs running outside of your awareness; your silent saboteurs!

Example 1: Rachel’s employer smiles favorably on people who readily step up, take action, embrace change and are willing to step outside of their comfort zone. Her conscious mind thinks she exemplifies these characteristics yet her actions show otherwise. Her method of operation is to always ‘play it safe’ ?under the guise that her calculated strategies will move her ahead faster. The fact is, she has a silently sabotaging program running; a deep seated fear of failure. It was rooted in a single childhood moment during a gymnastics competition. She took a risk, attempting a move she had just learned but not quite mastered and fell. She failed to place. Her mother ridiculed her failure.

Example 2: Conner is very good at what he does. He exudes confidence and knows what he wants and how to get it. However, he has a reputation for being a hot head. His method of operation is intimidation. His conscious mind justifies this as ‘being a leader’ and ‘taking charge of the situation’ and his ticket to advancement. Unfortunately, his superiors and co workers alike see him as an ass. The fact is, Conner has a silently sabotaging program running; a deep seated belief that he isn’t smart enough. It was rooted in early childhood conditioning. His father would regularly shouted, “What’s the matter? Are you stupid? As an adult he developed aggressive behaviors to override this non-conscious belief of not measuring up.

Q: How does the Personal Empowerment System find what your sabotoging programs are?

A: To slay these silent saboteurs, the Personal Empowerment System uses a cutting edge method called Introspec. It is a guided introspection that, with GPS-like precision, gets to the root cause of a behavior or pattern and identifies hidden fears, beliefs, vows and conditioning that are unconsciously holding you back.

Q: How do the sessions for the  Personal Empowerment System work?

A: The initial few sessions begin with a general discussion of the issues you are facing; the things are not ideal; where you are in your career/ life vs. where you want to be. This brings to the surface behaviors, patterns and strategies of avoidance you use which do not support the direction you want to go.

With the Introspec method, we drill right to the root moment or series of moments when the foundation for disempowerment was laid. When that ‘crystallizing moment’ is exposed we move to the phase of the session where we neutralize it. Metaphorically we ‘tear it out from its roots’ so it’s dead and gone. A new positive foundation is constructed. At the end of the session, on this new foundation, you will have an action plan for implementing your new found clarity. Each session runs approximately 2 hours.

As you advance in your series of sessions they will become even more focused and pinpointed. The clearing will have compounding effects. Once eliminated, a disempowering program often stops adversely affecting you immediately! That is why this program is so effective!

Q: How are the sessions facilitated?

A: There are three ways to facilitate a session: Via Skype, by telephone or in person.

  1. Skype -The advancement of technology allows us to bring the one on one sessions right into your home or office anywhere in the world! These sessions are conducted thru an audio/video link using Skype. It’s just like being in the same room. The best part about about Skype is that it is Free!
  2. Telephone – If Skype is not an option we can conduct it over the telephone. You will be responsible calling in thus any long distance charges.
  3. In-person - If you live near our office inPrince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada, the sessions can be facilitated in person.

Q: What exactly is the Personal EmpowermentSystem and what does it include?

A: To take your life to the next level requires and new paradigm of thought; an understanding of how your distant past has had and is having negative influences on your present and future. Here’s what the Personal Empowerment System will do for you:

  • Understanding – You will understand the nature of non-conscious programs; how they are silently sabotaging your advancement. There is a saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know”, meaning you have been going through life blind to the cause and effect relationship of your past, particularly your childhood.
  • Identify your silently sabotaging programs – Each session will look at what is not ideal in your career/ life and the gap that exists from what is your ideal. We zero in on specific patterns and behaviors that conflict with generating your ideal result.
  • Examine the origin of these programs – Utilizing the Introspec method you will come face to face with the exact memory or series of memories when the unhealthy behaviors or patterns were formed then identify all hidden fears, beliefs, vows and conditioning.
  • Eliminate all vestiges of these hold backs once and for all – When the time and place of the formation occurred and complete understanding of the situation will be formed.
  • Build a new foundation of empowering truths about your true potential – Using techniques that call upon your own inner wisdom, the true reality of your abilities and potential will emerge. These will be anchored into you non-conscious mind using various techniques including NLP.
  • Examine the possibilities that now open up to you – As you gain this new perspective, free from your past limiting thoughts, you will create a possibilities chart. Together we will examine all of the various paths of opportunity to get you to where you want to be.
  • Create an action plan that will accelerate your career – Once identified, all possibilities will be examined and narrow down. You will then create an action plan for execution. These will be the steps you will live by in the coming weeks and months.

Q: What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

A: This Personal Empowerment System was created for people who are absolutely driven and deadly serious about clearing their silent saboteurs and ending what I call that “something isn’t quite right but can’t put my figure on it” feeling, meaning, not waking up morning after morning asking, “why do I feel so stuck?”

Being a seeker of truth, understanding and continuous self improvement myself, I’m known to work best with other highly driven go-getters who are ready to get going and just want to rid themselves of their hold backs once and for all.

Consider what you’ll do with me to be an action cleansing program. You will be expected to take serious each session and play full out and face down the self sabotaging false beliefs about yourself, your perceived circumstances and injustices. No excuses anymore, just very different ways of thinking as you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Freedom to accelerate your career in any direction you wish!

Q: What type of person is this program NOT going to work?

Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my program and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)

The Personal Empowerment System is NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate. Experience dictates that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations that the sessions reveal to them and do not do implement action plan (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next months rent check or mortgage payment.)

Another type of person I won’t work with (without exception) is the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for missing session times or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?

Q: Does this really work?

A: Yes! The result of my work changes careers and career paths for the better. Over time and with your dedication to your own clearing huge changes in career can be attained. See Success Stories

Q: What results can I expect?

A: You can expect to:

  • clear out the most destructive sabotaging programs that are unconsciously holding you back including: hidden fears and phobias, disempowering vows, judgments and covert insecurities.
  • be free from the most unsupportive behaviors or patterns.
  • be free to move on from past mistakes and failures.
  • be free to move on from past emotional or physical traumas that are unconsciously limiting you.
  • have reduced stress.
  • have a clear picture of your unlimited potential.
  • have clarity of thought.
  • have boundless confidence.
  • speak from a place of authenticity.
  • have absolute freedom to take your career in any direction you want.
  • have an unshakable sense of purpose.
  • future pace a vision for yourself 1 month, 6 months, 1year, 5 years and 10 years into the future.
  • be empowered with a clean slate and the ability to chart the future YOU envision.
  • have an ability to tap into your own infinite wisdom.
  • be able to take decisive action.
  • have a new sense and focus and flow in your daily activities.
  • see opportunities that are currently hidden from your view.

Q: How quickly can I expect results?

A: Obviously, this depends on you, where you are in your career and what your aspirations are. For example, if you’re currently in a mid-level management position and you aspire to be CEO, that not going to happen with in the next couple of months.

What will happen is through the elimination of your unconscious hold backs, your improved performance will naturally separate you from your colleagues. New advancement opportunities will unfold. Remember, it took many years of adverse conditioning to create the not-so-perfect person you are today. It takes the compounding affects of multiple sessions to make major shifts. Yet with that said, many people find immediate results in their way of being and overall outlook after as little as one session.
