Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels, said that “Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving.” But sometimes, we have mental blocks that prevent us from moving forward. Hypnotherapy for success can help you overcome these blocks and gain the momentum you need to achieve your goals.
In this article, we explore success and how hypnosis can help you find it. We also look at how a typical hypnosis session may look for you, address some of the most common questions about hypnosis for success, and even reveal some very successful people who have used hypnosis to get to the top. Are you ready to dive in? Let’s start by investigating the meaning of success.
How Do You Define Success?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines success as: “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.” But the definition of success can vary wildly from person to person. Some people might define success as founding a profitable startup, while others define it as raising a happy family. Other people may see it as leaving a job that’s not right for them, while others define it as overcoming a difficult illness.
The truth is that all of these people are correct—success has an infinite amount of definitions.
But no matter how you define it, success requires a successful mindset. This includes qualities such as:
- High self-esteem and self-confidence (even in the face of failure)
- A willingness to take risks
- Consistent gratitude
- Strong focus skills
- An ability to manage stress
- Flexible thinking
When you have these qualities, you’re sure to be successful, no matter what success means to you. But these can be difficult traits to cultivate, especially when you have subconscious blocks preventing you from achieving them.
This is where hypnosis for success can help.
What is Hypnosis?
In order to understand how hypnosis works for success, let’s start by exploring what hypnosis is.
Hypnosis is a trance-like state of consciousness marked by deep focus. While you’re in this focused state, you’re not asleep or unconscious (although you might look that way to an observer).
Through different types of hypnosis (like regression, visualization, and suggestion), you’re empowered to embody success by understanding what it looks and feels like to you. You’re also able to tap into the subconscious programming that guides your behavior and address the root causes of mental blocks that hold you back.
Hypnosis makes you more open to positive suggestions. When you’re hypnotized and you hear positive suggestions, you’re able to internalize them at a subconscious level. This is what makes hypnosis different from (and often, more effective than) cognitive behavioral therapy or saying affirmations to yourself.
The deep-focus feeling of hypnosis is likely already familiar to you: You’ve probably experienced a similar feeling when you’re very focused on a passion project. You have to consent to hypnosis for it to work, and it works best when you have an open mind.
Hypnosis is traditionally used for conditions like:
- Chronic pain
- Depression and anxiety
- Irritable Bowel syndrome
- Weight Loss
You can also use hypnosis to cultivate positive qualities. In fact, in recent years, mindset coaches have seen excellent results using hypnosis to help their clients find success in business, trading, athletics, and more.
How Hypnosis for Success Works
Hypnosis for success works by helping you target the obstacles that prevent you from finding success, like low self-esteem or an inability to focus. It helps you identify and overcome the mental blocks that keep you from accessing your highest levels of performance. Those limiting beliefs may include fears of success, worries about finances, fears of failure, issues with self-sabotage, or something else.
Hypnosis can also help you reduce stress, sleep better, confront your fears, and think more positively, all of which are critical to success.
There are many hypnosis techniques for success, like suggestion, regression, and visualization hypnosis. Today, let’s take a look at how a suggestion-based hypnotism session works.
Step 1: Identify Your Goal
In this first phase of hypnosis, you identify your goal for success. If you’re working directly with a hypnotherapist, communicate your goal to them. If you’re using a hypnotherapy app, select a primer (a pre-recorded hypnosis track) that corresponds with your goal.
Step 2: Induction Phase
In the induction phase, you’re guided into a hypnotic state. Your hypnotherapist or app leads you into this state with breathing exercises, muscle relaxation, visualization, and counting techniques. It’s a very relaxing experience!
Step 3: Suggestion Phase
During the suggestion phase of hypnosis, your hypnotist or app makes positive suggestions based on your goals. They may also use affirmations, visualizations, and metaphors to help you find a different mindset, envision your goals, and achieve success. In your hypnotic state, you’re better able to internalize these suggestions. And once you return to your waking state, you act upon them.
Step 4: Come Out of Your Hypnotic State
Your hypnotist or app gently guides you out of your hypnotic state using counting and other prompts. Once out, you’re left primed and ready to tackle your goals.
Successful people in all types of professions, from Olympic-medalist speed skater Brittany Bowe to Fedor Holz, the previous World’s #1 ranked poker player, have used hypnosis to find success. So too, have a host of CEOs, actors, schoolteachers, and soccer moms. Regardless of how you spend your days, hypnosis can help you achieve whatever you define as success.
Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnosis for Success
Still have questions? These are some of the queries we get most often about hypnosis for success.
Does Hypnosis for Success Actually Work?
Hypnosis is proven to help you target some of the issues that may be leading to a lack of success. Studies show that hypnosis can improve self esteem, reduce stress and anxiety, and make overall positive changes to your thinking patterns.
Many successful individuals like Tiger Woods, Julia Roberts, Sir Winston Churchill, and even Einstein have used hypnotherapy to achieve their goals
Can Hypnosis Make You Rich?
Hypnosis is not a magic spell, and you cannot hypnotize yourself into being rich. But you can use hypnosis to cultivate positive traits and smash through roadblocks that are preventing you from success. This may, in turn, lead to monetary gains.
One of the typical roadblocks to financial gain is the wealth thermostat, in which you subconsciously prevent yourself from earning more money. You might do this because of subconscious beliefs based on what your parents earn, your perception about the morality of wealthy people, or even your hangups about a certain number.
Hypnosis can help you get to the root of these beliefs and eradicate them.
Can you Hypnotize Yourself?
It is possible to use self-hypnosis, but we recommend using a guided hypnosis app if you’re new to hypnosis. A hypnosis app offers many of the same benefits of self-hypnosis, such as not relying on an in-person therapist and the ability to use it anytime, anywhere.
Primed Mind is an excellent guided hypnosis app. It combines hypnosis techniques with a mobile app so you can experience the benefits of hypnosis at the touch of a button. This mindset coaching application can unlock your full potential by showing you how to tap into powerful areas of your mind. You’ll be able to breakthrough roadblocks, visualize goals, and make them happen—all from your smartphone or tablet!
More Ways to Encourage Success
Hypnosis for success works best when you use it in conjunction with other habits that promote success, such as:
- Setting goals and taking small steps toward achieving them every day. When you keep a small promise to yourself each day, you build up your self-esteem, which is critical for both achieving success and feeling that you deserve it.
- Taking good care of your physical and mental health. Exercise frequently, get 7 – 9 hours of sleep each night, and eat regular, balanced meals to support your health. A healthy body leads to a healthy state of mind.
- Taking time to reflect. Take time to evaluate what’s most important to you and find ways to prioritize those things.
- Practicing good organization habits. Losing track of your belongings and your time can be one of the biggest detriments to success, It can hinder you even if you’re an otherwise driven and talented person. You can encourage success by staying organized in both your work and personal life.
- Not taking on more work than you can handle. It’s important to be honest with yourself about how much you can realistically achieve in a day. You can delegate the rest or schedule it for a later date. This is as essential to your well-being as it is to your success.
- Making a point to find the lessons in your failure. We all mess up; it’s critical to your self-confidence to see failure as an opportunity to learn rather than a reason to beat yourself up.
- Cultivating positive thoughts. Think positively, let go of negative thoughts, and practice gratitude if you want to reach success.
- Limiting unhelpful behaviors. Lower your tolerance for bad habits and procrastination, and take steps to limit these behaviors.
