Motivation for Success

Fear of Success

Many people arrive at the Hypnotherapist’s office wanting to achieve more success, more money, fulfillment in a career, a house, a relationship and no matter how hard they’ve tried, it seems next to impossible. They may have a subconscious desire to stay exactly where they are — not too successful, not enough money, no career, house, or perhaps no relationship.

Through hypnosis, we can bring the subconscious mind on board for a new level of success by creating a new belief system. Because re-scripting is a key element to this process, in addition to sessions, the client can continue doing individual work using the powerful hypnotic tool, The Mental Bank, developed by Dr. John Kappas. In his accompanying book, Success Is Not An Accident, Kappas explains the concept of The Mental Bank’s ability to re-script the subconscious mind.

What is a belief?

How do we get them? It happens simply, through information that we take in, through our suggestibility, and this information creates a thought. A thought that we think often enough eventually becomes habitual and therefore more lodged in our subconscious where it has now become something that we absolutely believe. Through hypnosis, it is possible to release or diminish old beliefs and create new ones. The creation of new neural pathways can occur through hypnotherapy and be supported by positive reinforcement tools like the, The Mental Bank.

Let’s get comfortable with the new Belief System!

Through subconscious imaging in the comfort and security of the hypnotic state, we become associated with making the unknown more known to ourselves. So, in conscious awake life, when we attempt the new behaviors or respond in new emotional ways, we are more comfortable and able to embrace the new easily and effortlessly. We have become more motivated to allow the success of the desired nature. We have, in effect, mentally rehearsed it, so that it is known to us, and not scary or painful. This is due, primarily, to connecting with the subconscious mind, which works on expectation and imagination. It does not know the difference between fact and fantasy.

Increasing Desire and Motivation

Sometimes we become complacent, yet we yearn for more. Somewhere we know inside we could become more than we seem to be allowed, but we just keep the status quo. Sometimes inertia sets in. Or, sometimes, it is downright fear of taking the next step, (it’s so good now, what if the other shoe drops?) going to the next level seems daunting. Yet, through hypnotic experience with positive reinforcement tools, stronger desire and motivation can be built up. Changing the inner landscape in an associated comfort state allows for comfortable positive changes in the outer landscape of consciousness.
