When the average person is confronted by a problem, a disappointment, an uncertainty, a fear, or an emergency, their common reflex action is to stress or panic. And when a person stresses, when they panic, they are shut off from their only two problem solvers, their creativity and their imagination. Our creativity and our imagination are located in our subconscious mind – not our conscious mind. We don’t need to think about what’s in our subconscious mind – that’s taken care of automatically.

What if… what if? What if our reflex was to instead of going to stress or panic mode, we reflexed to calm? Our subconscious mind, which  is where our imagination and creativity reside, would allow is to see the problem and the solution with a clarity and an insight that is not available when we are in our stressed or panicked mode.

Can this be done? Yes, as a matter of fact it can done and it is being done every day.

How did US Air Captain Chelsey Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffery Skiles react when they lost both engines on US Air 1549 only minutes and seconds after taking off? We’ve all seen the footage and heard everyone… the passengers… Air Traffic Control… and LaGuardia tower, everyone remarked how calm Captain Sullenberger and First Officer Skiles behaved through the entire ordeal. Yes, they were very well trained. But all the training in the world would have been to no avail if they would have panicked or stressed out when they found themselves flying a 375,000 pound airplane carrying 150 passengers with the engines no longer providing any power whatsoever.

The principles are they same whether you have to make a speech, you are a salesman that has to make a sale, a physician, a parent, an athlete, someone needing to pass a test, a bride planning her wedding … it doesn’t matter. If you reflex to calm instead of panic and stress, your life will be much smoother! You will evaluate the problem and deliver a solution and still remain calm.

Overcoming procrastination with hypnosis.

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Overcoming procrastination through hypnosis.

Why does one fail to act even when motivated to act? Why does one fail to take action when they know they must take action? In my hypnotherapy practice in Atlanta Georgia, I see many people whose presenting complaint is procrastination. They realize the negative consequences it has in their life, but they continue to procrastinate. Why?

They’re afraid. Afraid they aren’t ready. Afraid they aren’t well enough organized. Afraid it’s not the right time. Afraid everything isn’t in place. And… afraid of failure. They have excuses but no real reasons. Failing to do what you need to do will assure failure. The results for overcoming procrastination through hypnosis are excellent! If you decide to overcome your fear and act, you’ll have the thrill of winning. If you don’t, you won’t.

I wanted to learn to fly an airplane. I went out to a small airport and said to the instructor “I don’t know how to fly.” I explained I wanted to purchase an introductory lesson. The instructor took me out to the plane and explained what the different parts did. When he finished with the outside, he said “now let’s show you what things are for in the cockpit.” He motioned for me to get into the left seat, the pilot’s seat. Not wanting him to think I already knew how to fly, and not wanting a fatal misunderstanding, I said “I don’t know how to fly.” He said “I know, but let’s show you how things work.” He showed me what the various controls and gauges were for, and then he said “Reach up and grab a hold of that handhold on the dash and pull your seat up closer.” I did. “Now fasten your seat belt.” I did. “Now put on these headphones, that way you can hear the tower and other pilots.” I did. He got into the other seat beside me and fastened his seat belt. I said again I don’t know how to fly.” He said. “I know, now turn that magneto switch past L & R to both.” I did. “Now push in on the throttle and hit the start button.” I did – the engine started. He spoke into the microphone and said “484 Tango is rolling.”

Thinking that we would change places before taking off, I let him show me how to steer with my feet and we went to a run-up area beside the end of the runway. He said “Push on both brakes and run the throttle up to 2000 rpm and turn the switch from both to left and then to right, then lower the throttle.”  I did. Then fearing a huge misunderstanding with fatal consequences, I turned to him again and repeated “I don’t know how to fly.” He said “I know. I heard you before.” “Now steer with your feet, aim down the centerline and when we hit 65 mph lift back on the yoke and fly the airplane.” I did.

Over the next few weeks, he taught me how to take off, climb, turn, fly level and land an airplane. One day we took off and landed right away. He said “go over to the hanger.” He got out and said to me “take off and land my airplane without bending it.” I did.

Take action whether you’re scared or not. Take action whether you feel like it or not. I wasn’t ready. I was scared, but I acted. I quit procrastinating and learned to fly.
