How can hypnosis and NLP help entrepreneurs and business professionals succeed?

It’s remarkable just how many celebrities use hypnosis—how many CEOs and heads of production companies. It’s sort of a secret weapon for a lot of very successful, very wealthy people.

says Dr. Steve G. Jones in this Forbes article: Using hypnosis to be better at business.  In fact, not only in the business world, first rate politicians also routinely employ the techniques of hypnosis. This Forbes article: Donald Trump, political mass hypnotist? outlines how Donald Trump uses hypnosis to influence.

Dilbert creator Scott Adams (who is a also a trained hypnotherapist) describes the state of hypnosis as acquiring a power.

The subject has all of his regular faculties operating plus he gains some more, if he has no objection to those new powers. For example, a subject under hypnosis would get a little extra power in one or more of these areas:

1. Extra relaxation
2. Extra imagination
3. Extra focus

I see hypnosis as an extremely powerful tool in creating the success mindset – unlocking your beliefs in yourself, connect with your own confidence and competence. Most of the people think they have to succeed in order to feel successful. But they got it backwards. You have to feel successful first, you have to have the success mindset first before your can create the success you want in life.

Hypnosis and self-hypnosis are also very powerful in finding creative ideas and solutions. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) once said,“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”. To break free from the way he thought, he used self-hypnosis to explore his creativity. Einstein was known to have hypnosis sessions every afternoon.  According to his writings, his famous “E=mc2″ revelation came during one of these sessions.

Adding NLP techniques, entrepreneurs and executives can further increase their influence and persuasion power. Entrepreneurs have to sell their ideas to investors and employees, executives have to sell their ideas to their bosses and colleagues. NLP helps you build connection and rapport so your messages can get across and get accepted by others more easily.

If you are serious about becoming successful, then hypnosis and NLP are two powerful tools that you have to have. It makes the journey easier, more enjoyable and possible.
