Fear of Failure

Fear of Failure

Fear of Failure is one of the key failures, preventing clients from success using hypnosis treatment. As a professional hypnotist or hypnotherapist, you need to understand that the problem your client expresses is only part of the treatment session.

By listening to your client as you complete your intake form, and as you ask pointed questions, you will uncover the reasons why hypnosis treatment may fail in your session. If your treatment suggestions fail, you may have your client’s fear of failure, as the culprit.

What is the fear of failure?

Your client’s fear of failure most likely began as a young child. Perhaps your client’s parents were not patient with him or her and said things like, “You will never amount to anything,” or “You always do everything wrong.” Young children hang on every word their parents utter and try to live up to their parent’s expectations.

Soon, those expectations become goals, and the subconscious mind, being a goal achieving machine is a willing servant in manifesting the failure pattern.

Your clients may even have best friends who deviously and not so deviously discourage rather then encourage success. You need to ask a question like, “Who does not want you to achieve your goal,” and find out if the lack of support from a friend or friends is creating a mindset of failure within your client.

What do I do to help my client’s overcome their fears of failure?

Once you have established there is a pattern, have your clients close their eyes and recall the last time they felt good about achieving a goal in their lives. Everyone, no matter how failure driven, will remember high points in their lives. Have your clients remember in every detail the winning accomplishment, and focus on the feelings your clients had at the time of the accomplishment and how they feel now, about this accomplishment.

When you then, formally hypnotize your clients include in their hypnosis induction, a comparison of the feeling they will have when they, give up smoking, lose weight or achieve their hypnosis goals, with the feeling they had when they achieved their remembered success in the past.

To the degree you can get your clients to compare their projected success with the feeling of their past success, you will expedite the behavior you seek in your clients and reduce their fears of failure.

Sometimes, your clients will be crippled with a profound fear of failure. You need to overcome this fear of failure during your first hypnosis treatment session. Before you hypnotize your client, find out about his fears, and then attack his fears by encouraging remembering and recalling feelings attached to a previous success.

Doing so, will create an atmosphere or environment of success and help your clients achieve their goals.
