Why Are We Surprised That Famous People Turn To Hypnotherapy?

It would seem that most weeks there is an article some place or another highlighting that a celebrity has visited a hypnotherapist for weight loss, or stopping smoking, or perhaps to gain a sporting edge or to cure a phobia. Whatever a celebrity does always creates media attention, but when a famous person sees a hypnotherapist the media circus escalates and it frequently creates front page news. Why is this? Is hypnotherapy really perceived as THAT unusual?

Hypnotherapy is still seen by many as a bit off-beat, even though it is a perfectly normal and natural art, just as yoga or meditation is normal and natural. Paul McKenna has done a fantastic job in promoting the value of hypnotherapy to the everyday person. He began his hypnotic career as a stage hypnotist which made a lot of people aware of the powerfulness of hypnosis; whilst over recent years McKenna has focused his attention on promoting its therapeutic benefits, turning his back on the stage hypnotist’s arena, even referring to his stage career as his “past life”.

There is nothing which promotes the use of hypnotherapy as effectively as the news that another celebrity has sought its help. Another massive group of people suddenly become aware of hypnotherapy and inevitably ask the question “could it be of help to ME?” Could you, like Lily Allen, reduce your size from 12 to 8 with the help of hypnosis, instead of struggling to stick to yet another diet or, worse still, risk the knife to either cut away your fatty tissues or halve your stomach’s capacity? (Sophie Dahl and Geri Halliwell are two of several other celebrities who have been in the news due to their use of hypnotherapy in their quest to lose weight.)

Or perhaps you could learn to hole the ball like Tiger when you’re on the 18th green? We’re told he started using hypnosis at a very early age, and I doubt anyone would question his mental strength and tenacity to succeed. So many celebrities have used hypnosis in so many different ways; it would almost be easier to list those who have not benefitted from its use. It would seem that the more talented and successful one is the more likely you are to seek the advantages which hypnosis can confer. Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Mozart, Kevin Costner…so many great and talented people’s names have been linked with hypnosis. And this shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Those people who have given their all to achieve the highest levels of ability and success share in common the habit of leaving no stone unturned in their thirst for knowledge, perfection, success or achievement, or whatever else it is they are passionate about. They have the mentality to question things, to seek cause and effect, as opposed to just accept things as they are or to believe everything that they are told. Limits to such great minds are not boundaries by which they are constrained; rather, limits tease their minds to find a way to stretch and overcome them.

Such people would not dream of using anything without first researching why and how it might work for them. They will have made an informed choice when making their decision to seek the services of a hypnotherapist. Most celebrities who turn to hypnosis do so because they have researched it and understand how powerful its assistance can be. They also have a burning desire, a passion to succeed and so will go to greater lengths than most in order to succeed. And this is a major key in whether or not it will be successful; if you were just to “give it a whirl” then you are not committed to what you are doing.

If you were to ask any of these people how much effort they expended in the use of hypnosis and how this equated to their level of success, they would ALL say that hypnosis was easy, quick, natural and took very little time, whilst the benefits were truly amazing. The benefits are huge compared to the effort spent. And this is why so many successful people use hypnosis.

Hypnosis isn’t just available to the select few. It’s available and affordable to almost everyone. You can get a free hypnosis download from my website and try it for yourself. But first, read up about it; Google “hypnotherapy” and make an informed choice to use it to your advantage. Emulate those people who have achieved the greatest success and be committed to whatever it is you want to do, whether it’s losing 20 pounds in weight, stopping smoking, playing in the Open or becoming a billionaire.

If there is one thing to learn from great achievers it is to put 110% into what you do instead of making a half hearted effort.
