10 Steps to Goal Achievement for 2006 Starting Today

10 Steps to Goal Achievement for 2006 Starting March 1, 2006

Do you want to achieve all of your goals for 2006? March has just begun and we can start your New Year Today!

Follow this 10 Step Guide to insure you will reach and exceed all of your goals. Every few days I will be adding more steps. Take these steps in order and complete each one before progressing on to the next step.

Step #1

Before writing a specific goal on a piece of paper I want you to close your eyes and imagine how your family and friends will act once you achieve your primary goal.

Is there anyone holding you back from your goals? Who is it or who are they? Write down their names on a piece of paper or create a file on your computer and title it, My Goal Achievement for 2006.

This is the very first step of the goal achievement process. When people try to achieve their New Year’s goals or any other goal for that matter, they always have to overcome the naysayer and negative people. Unfortunately those people are usually very close to them and have a great deal of influence on their success.

Shortly I will introduce Step #2. You must however; complete Step #1 or you risk never achieving your goal, or achieving it only for a short time.

What you want and deserve is to achieve all of your goals, in spite of what friends, family, bosses, or loved ones say or think about your success. I pledge to help you overcome their influence and achieve all the success you deserve.

Book High Schools Yourself: Question 1.

Advice on Booking High Schools by Yourself

Question from Mike in Cleveland, OH.

"I work during the day but I want to book stage hypnosis shows and enough of them so I can quit my day job." "Do I call schools myself or send out mailings?"

Mike, Thank you for writing.

I have found the most productive way to book is to call and book, regardless of the market.

That being said and you with a limitation of a job, here is what you should expect with a mailing.

First of all, the only way to find out who to send your information to, is by calling. If you cannot call what I would do is send the information to the Principal of the school. You can find out names of principals from Greatschools.net or your state education Websites.

The principal will act as a clearing house to the organizations within the school that are crying for money. He or she are bombarded by club sponsors daily.

I would do split the gates and just focus on fundraising. All school assemblies are performed during the day, and the student council usually has a budget for speakers. Since you are working during the day all contacts and performances for assemblies will be during the day, thus not your market.

Fund raisers are almost always held at night when parents can attend. A few will be held on Saturdays during the day, but usually are never held during the week days.

A fund raiser should be able to bring in at least 300 people at a very small school and for a well publicized show, more that 1000 people. If the ticket price is only $6.00 a ticket that should bring your split around $3000.00

If you are going to have the school buy your program, let them pay you $3000.00 up front for your appearance rather than $800.00. $3000.00 is more logical.

I wouldn't offer a buyout for schools. They won't have the money upfront to pay you for fundraising. A 50/50 split with no upfront costs by the school sounds like the best approach for you. List no other option on your flyers.

In your offer letter or postcard, make sure you mention that the contact leave a night time number they can reach you.

A mailing of 1000 sounds like a lot but mailings usually only get about a 1% return. You can increase the return by mailing to the same individuals 7 or 8 times over the year. That is a huge expense and time consumer.

In any event a 1 percent return means you will be getting 10 people to call you back. If you book half of those that only means 5 gigs. 5 gigs at $800.00 is only $4000.00 to you. After the time, effort and cost of the mailing that is not a good business decision. At the most you could only mail the school 7 times during the year as most schools have two or three months off. They only have 180 working days.

If I had the limitation of working days and only 1000 addresses to mail to 7 times a year, I would opt to sending my information, (not mentioning fee) to corporations in the same geography.

5 gigs a month for major corporation quarterly meetings or conventions would net you anywhere from $12,500 ( for a minimum fee of $2500) to $50,000, for a fee of $10,000 which most midsize companies expect to pay for banquet entertainment

($2500.00 is considered a "beginning speaker" in the corporate world. Your worst performance as a hypnotist will outshine a beginning public speaker by leaps and bounds) A corporation will spend more than $2500.00 on the flower arrangement at the dinner. Try to get flowers to hypnotize people.

You will send out the same amount of flyers and reap tremendous rewards. At $50,000 a month, you may consider eliminating your day job, and then you will be able to book school assembly programs at $800-2500 per show if you still want to do them.

Hypnosis Technique Tip 2. Confidence is Nine-tenths of the Law

Hypnosis Technique Tip 2
Confidence is Nine tenths of the Law

Question: What is the one quality that I need to become successful in hypnotizing other people?

John Jay, Elgin, IL


The one quality you need above all else in order to be successful in hypnotizing other people is confidence.When people come for help they want to be assured they will be listened to and respected. They also want to feel confident that you can help them achieve total success.

In order to achieve that total success, you need to be confident. Always remember that you are the boss in this process. People come to hypnotists generally after they have rejected all other types of therapy. They have lost a great deal of their own self-confidence along the way. When you can act and project in a way that eliminates their doubts, your clients feel relaxed and ready to experience the true magic of the mind…hypnosis.

How do you get confidence when you are just starting out?

When you first start out in your hypnotherapy practice you may have no confidence whatsoever. Sure you may be able to talk about other hypnotist’s successes or your instructor’s success, however you may not have a bank of personal experiences hypnotizing others.

This is when you need to trust your abilities and the abilities of your clients to “heal themselves.”

As a hypnotist the real power never comes from you. The power to heal and change lives comes from your clients and their abilities to view life differently as a result of communicating with you during your sessions.

When I train Hypnotists in my one-on-one Workshops, I make sure I spend a considerable time on building up my student’s self-confidence. Hypnosis is almost all confidence and a little bit of technique.

Confidence is nine tenths of the law.

Hypnosis Tecnique Tip 1.

Hypnosis technique tip #1

“Dear mr Perkins”
“My name Is Christopher ball and I am interested in seeing if you could tell me what I can do to improve my hypnosis. “The method that I use is I make the person look very hard at a pen and I make them look at nothing but the pen and listen to nothing but my voice. then I say when I snap my fingers you will be in a deep trance. Then to get them out of the trance I say when I snap my fingers you will be out of this trance and this order is locked in with the password ..”.

Please give me some advice.
Christopher Ball


Thank you for writing, Christopher. First of all, I do not know your age. If you are learning hypnosis in the United States you must be at least 21 years old. Also if you are an adult, you need to have a permission slip from the parents of anyone you are hypnotizing who is under 18 years old.

Using a single method like “looking real hard at a pen” may work on some people, but others will be distracted by it. Some people like staring at objects when hypnotize, others work better to begin with their eyes closed down.

Hypnosis is a state of concentration, not a trance. If you are demanding people go into a trance with a snap of the fingers, many will pop out of hypnosis all together, because they know that hypnosis is concentration, not trance. Only 20 percent of the population or 1 out of 5 of your clients will think they were in a trance.

I would use a deepening technique like counting backwards from 100 down to one, or developing a light or heavy sensation in the body, or give them pre-hypnosis tests.

(All of these things can be learning in my Hypnosis Audio Training Course)

You also need to use something different for a cue to go down into hypnosis, especially if you are using the same cue, (snapping fingers) to take them out of hypnosis.

I recommend you take a course in hypnosis to learn these fine points.

I wish you success in your efforts.

How Do I Market My Hypnotherapy Practice

How Do I Market My Hypnotherapy Practice?

Many times people attend one Hypnotherapy Certification Course after another, always learning new techniques however never learning the “one” technique that will turn their dreams of becoming working hypnotherapists instead of the humdrum jobs they are working to support their Hypnotherapy training fees.

The one technique that ALL hypnotherapists need to improve on is marketing.

Why is marketing skill so important?

There are three main reasons marketing skills are important to a hypnotherapist. You need to develop strong marketing skills because you need to sell your ideas and theories about hypnosis to your clients. You need to be aware that the same lack of self-confidence and self-esteem that holds you back from “tooting your own horn,” is the same lack of self-confidence and self-esteem that every one of your hypnotherapy clients is experiencing for their unique problems and challenges. Finally, the obvious, you need to hone your marketing skills to attract new clients for your financial survival in the business.

Selling Your Hypnosis Ideas and Theories to Your Clients

Your clients contact you about a problem. They ask, “Can you help me?” “I heard that hypnosis opens me up to receiving messages from the devil.” “Is that true?”

When you hear that or any objection to the hypnosis process you put on your hat and are now a professional salesperson. Salespeople know that they have to overcome objections in order to win over the customer. Salespeople know that objections mean questions and questions mean interest and stimulating more interest and turn your prospect into a life-long client. I was always the kind of person when hearing an “objection” from a potential client; I would take the objection as a personal assault on my integrity. Nothing could have been further from the truth. People are interested in “their problems,” not yours.
Questions signify interest on the part of your prospects or clients. Learning the art of listening to and handling questions and objections will help build your practice quicker than you may think.

Learn to listen and sell each prospect and you will get many more clients than you are getting now.

Does Your Lack of Self-esteem and Self-confidence Hold You Back from Success!
Yes, it does. And it holds back every one of your prospects and clients back from success. When you overcome your lack of self-esteem and self-confidence as it relates to your marketing abilities, you will become empowered to help all of your clients with all of their problems. You will be in rapport with your clients as you understand how hard it is to overcome problems on your own, and you will have the exact procedure to help your clients overcome their lack of self-esteem and self-confidence and enable and empower your clients to solve their problems based on your input.

Do more marketing and do it everyday. You will defeat the fear in your own mind and be in a much better position to defeat the fears that de-motivate your future clients.

Attract new clients so you can reach your financial goals

Most of us just survive. People spend forty or fifty hours a week working a job and then they spend money as fast as they can so they have a reason to go back to a job they usually hate.

My attracting as many clients as you can handle you get out of the rut of just paying bills to a point where you can take time off and do the things you want to do. You get to go on vacations, move to exotic locations, and retire in the fashion you deserve.

Attracting clients and building your practice will allow you the freedom to take the courses you want to take, purchase the learning materials you put off until certain money goals are achieved, and help others in your family or your charities or your church.

It starts with marketing, and ends with a dream!

Make it a New Year’s Resolution every month and every year to touch more lives through your work. Help more people this week, this month and this year and all of your goals will be achieved.

Today we celebrate Arizona’s birthday. Not the hippie girl from Mark Lindsey’s song, but the actual state of Arizona, residing in the United States of America.

It was February 14, 1912 that Arizona became a state. It was either 47th or 48th as New Mexico was declared a state a few days later.

How to Hypnotize Over the Phone

How to Hypnotize Over the Phone

Would you like to expand your markets throughout your country or throughout the world?

Would you like to decrease your operating costs and at the same time provide a greater level of service of hypnosis treatment for your clients?

Now you can by offering hypnosis by telephone?


Back in 1978 I was just a stage hypnotist. I did not hypnotize people to overcome problems or achieve success.

One day I received a phone call from a volunteer who was on stage at a show I performed at a major university. She had a problem that only a profound degree of hypnosis would help. Since I was located over a thousand miles away I said that I couldn’t help here. She replied, “Why don’t you hypnotize me over the phone.” “I trust you.”

That day in 1978, began a new way of looking at how to deliver hypnotic treatment programs. I began hypnotizing my clients over the phone!

Advantages of Hypnosis Treatments Over the Phone

Lost cost startup

Lost cost operation

Fewer distractions by physical surroundings or physical features

Greater level of concentration to the hypnosis treatment program

Privacy for your clients

Convenience for your clients

Time saving sessions. There is no travel time involved.

Less of an impact on your business if your clients cancel at the last minute. You can continue on with business or pleasure with very little down time.

Step by Step Approach

Make sure your client knows when you will be calling

Prep your client by email or by phone on what to expect

Make sure you have a good connection. Do not use a cell phone at either end. Try to stay away from cordless phones because of interference as well as low batteries.

Try to get a back up telephone number in case of emergency

Have your client sitting up in a chair.

Give instructions in your pre-hypnosis talk about what to expect

Keep away from challenges. You cannot observe the other person and challenges are okay in a show but have little value in hypnosis treatment sessions.

Marketing of Hypnosis by Phone

If you have a website, post your treatment session FAQ online

If you post flyers or send brochures make sure you feature Hypnosis by Phone

If you speak at service or business groups pass out the information in your handouts

Add hypnosis by phone business cards and pass out to everyone you meet

Mention to your current clients that you are creating hypnosis by phone for them to make it convenient in the future for them to have sessions any time they need them

Call any Human Resource Managers from corporations in your area and let them know that you can offer a benefit for their employees with your hypnosis by telephone service.

(The company may be based in your city but has offices all over your country) You can tell the Human Resource Director or Human Resource Manager that you can help all of their employees out of one location….their home telephone.

If you contact these companies, you will be the only hypnotist they have ever talked with.

You will have their complete attention.

You may even discount your services for their employees as you will have instant clients and no additional marketing costs associated with getting those clients.

You can perform hypnotherapy or hypnosis treatment programs successfully over the telephone.

You will be benefiting many more clients than you can handle with a fixed location and you will maximize your effectiveness as a hypnotist using the best hypnosis tool ever invented…the telephone.

An Easy Hypnosis Deepener

Counting Backwards to Deepen the Hypnotic Condition

One deepener that many Master Hypnotists employ with their clients and volunteers is the Counting Backwards Deepener.

The Counting Backwards Deepener can be applied in at least two different ways.

One way is for the hypnotist to count backwards and suggest that with each count the subject go deeper and deeper into hypnosis.

Example 1:

The hypnotist says:

“In a moment I am going to count from ten down to one.” With every count you will go deeper and deeper into this pleasant state of hypnosis.” “All right, ten, you are going down, deep, deep, into hypnosis.” “Nine, you feel more relaxed than every before.” “Eight, going down, down, down.” “Seven, you feel perfectly relaxed.” “Six, you are going further down, down, down, into deep hypnosis.” “Five, your are completely relaxed.” “Four, you are relaxing with every breath that you take.” “Three, you are going deeper and deeper asleep, Two, you are going deeper into hypnosis,” and “One, you are deep in hypnosis.”

Example 2:

The second way to deepen using counting backwards is to get your subject to do the counting. You proceed as follows:

“In a moment I want you to count backwards from 100 down to 1. With every count find yourself relaxing deeper and deeper and by the time you reach one, go deep into hypnosis.”

“Okay, begin counting out loud from 100 down to 1.”

Now your subject begins counting backward. As he/she counts and relaxes with each count a deeper feeling of hypnosis ensues

While your subject is counting backwards you can present verbal relaxing suggestions to support your subject as he/she begins to get very drowsy and relaxed.


Use counting backwards to deepen hypnosis in all of your subjects. You will find it an effective deepening tool.

Become a Hypnotist in Easy Steps

Become a Hypnotist in Easy Steps

You may ask, what steps do I need to take to become a professional hypnotist?

How do I get a license and certification?

Let us examine the first steps you need to take to become a professional hypnotist.

Many people are interested in becoming professional hypnotists. They are at a point in their lives when they no longer want to be a spectator as they watch their family and friends suffer from psychological, physical or emotional problems. People want to help.

Since most books on hypnosis have been published 30 or 40 years ago, prospective hypnosis students do not know what steps they need to take today to become a professional hypnotist.

The good news is, if you live in the United States as long as you are at least twenty one years old, you can be a professional hypnotist just by calling yourself a professional hypnotist.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no universal certification board that allows any adult with any educational background the right to hypnotize other people. Because of freedom of speech in this country, by your birthright you are allowed to hypnotize other people.

All hypnosis schools are basically private people, companies or organizations that have no affiliation with state or federal educational departments other than the fact that they may obtain a business license to operate in that state. There are no certification teams that inspect or oversee what is happening in those schools, like you would find at regionally accredited colleges, universities, or community colleges. At best the so called school obtains a business license, just like you would if you offered a chimney sweep service or a hardware store. There is no governing body or certification body to oversee and control the process of hypnosis.

You can call yourself a professional hypnotist whether you have any training in the field or if you just have read a book on the subject.

On the other hand, the only way you can call yourself a “hypnotherapist” and legally do so within the 50 US states is you must have at least a Masters Degree in psychology or a PhD in psychology or an MD in psychiatry. (The word “therapist” in a title implies to many people you have postgraduate degrees like Masters and PhDs from “real” colleges and universities, not diploma mills.

In some states like Arizona and California, where I do most of my business, as long as you get certified by a private person or a school, you can call yourself a clinical hypnotherapist. But be on the lookout for those laws to change down the road.

You are always safe in calling yourself a “hypnotist,” but your are not safe in calling yourself a “hypnotherapist.”

The best way to find out what educational requirements you need in your state is to contact your Department of Commerce within your state.

Every US State now has a State Government Website Online. Within their Department of Commerce they will outline what you need to do to do business within that state.

It is very possible that you will not find any information at all regarding “hypnotists” or “hypnotherapists” regulations. There are very few fulltime hypnotists located throughout the country so, it usually does not warrant any special laws or considerations.

My advice is to start by contacting your state government or province if you are located in Canada. Find out if there are any special requirements to operating as a professional hypnotist within your state. If not, then you may want to take my Master Hypnosis Online Training Course that will walk you through all aspects of hypnosis and even show you how to open your own practice within your State or Region.

Overcoming the Fear of Rejection

Overcoming the Fear of Rejection

I like to improve the odds of successfully treating clients using hypnosis. One of the best ways of insuring your success as a hypnotist is to probe your client before hypnotizing him or her.

In probing your client you are looking to find the fears that will hold your client back from successfully completing your hypnosis treatment program.

One of the major fears you need to help your client overcome is the “fear of rejection.”

Fear of rejection comes into play especially in the areas of smoking cessation, controlling weight, or preparing for plastic surgery.

I met a guy we will call Charles, who was trying to give up smoking. He went to a one day stop smoking clinic presented by one of my hypnotist students. At the end of the day, Charles destroyed a pack of cigarettes and swore he would never touch those cigarettes again.

Charles went to his favorite night club, where smoking is allowed, and began talking about his hypnosis experience with a couple of his friends. As friend number one was expounding on hypnosis being the “work of the Devil,” friend number two was placing packs of cigarettes in front of Charles. Friend number two went to a convenience store during this discussion and quickly returned with a full carton of cigarettes. He laid the carton in front of Charles at the night club table.

Within a short time, Charles was smoking more than ever. His fear of losing his non-supportive friends was superior to his wish to give up smoking.

I asked Charles why he picked up the cigarettes and he simply said, “I felt rejected by my decision to quit smoking.” “The guys didn’t think it was okay.” “They kept putting me down for it and made fun of me.” “I just had to go back to get things back to normal.”

The fear of rejection, can wreak havoc on a hypnosis treatment program. As a hypnotist, make sure you ask your clients in their very first visits, “How will your friends feel about your success?” “When you are successful using this treatment, are you ready to change your life, forever?

If you receive answers during your first sessions that your clients are not ready to their lives forever, then recommend they come back when they are ready to change. The must be committed to change in order for your hypnosis treatment program to work.


Hypnosis can work miracles, however, only when your clients are ready to overcome their fear of rejection. I wish you success in helping all your clients overcome their fears of rejection.

Overcome the Fear of Embarrassment

Overcome the Fear of Embarrassment

You want to be successful as a professional hypnotist or hypnotherapist. You have a client named Frank, who comes to you because he never seems to earn enough money.

Even though Frank is college educated, the only jobs he gets hired for are barely over minimum wage. Frank is 35 years old, and has never earned the “big money,” promised by earning a college degree.

This is a common scenario with male clients, over the age of thirty, moving all the way up to retirement age.

I probed Frank, asking why he thinks he never secured the “big career.” I asked him, “What is holding you back from the big money,” and I asked him, “Who is holding you back from earning the big money.”

I was surprised to find that he named three people. I will call them, Tom, Dick and Harry.”

Every morning Frank, Tom, Dick and Harry meet for breakfast at a coffee shop located on the way to work.

Tom, Dick and Harry all work for either retail stores or telephone call centers, earning just a little over minimum wage. Tom, Dick and Harry are Frank’s age and none have a college degree.

I asked Frank, “What would Tom, Dick and Harry say if at breakfast, you told them, “I just got a job that will pay more than double my current earnings.”

Frank thought about it a few minutes then exclaimed, “I would be too embarrassed to tell them.”

I asked Frank why he would be embarrassed, and he said, “I don’t know.”

This is a very common to find in the business world. You find friends who are like you. They have the same politics, many times the same religious beliefs, and the same attitudes. You feel comfortable with them. There is nothing wrong with hanging out with like minds except when it comes to earning money.

To paraphrase Mark Victor Hansen, the “Chicken Soup of the Soul, Co-Creator, “Tell me how much money each of eight of your closest friend’s earn and I can tell you how much you earn.”

Peer pressure to retain the status quo in an adult relationship is every much as powerful as the peer pressure associated with teenage drug use.

How can a hypnotist help?

Once you have ascertained that your client is affected by the fear of embarrassment, you need to confront that fear with a positive induction that focuses on visualization exercises focusing on the way Tom, Dick and Harry will perceive Frank in his new higher paying position.

Make the visualization vivid with all the sights, sounds, smells and feelings of the breakfast café.

You will find that in just a few sessions, Frank will overcome his fear of embarrassment and embark on a program to find better paying jobs.


Always be on the lookout for the “Fear of Embarrassment.” This is a real fear that holds many of us back from success. Mastering techniques on overcoming the fear will help you as a hypnotist or hypnotherapist help many people that normally would go back to their old habits once your sessions are finished.

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

Overcoming the 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.

Overcoming the Fear of Success

Overcoming the Fear of Success

Sometimes clients are great hypnotic subjects. They are very motivated to achieve success in overcoming fears or phobias. They are enthusiastic to quit smoking or lose weight. They are properly encouraged to overcome guilt and shame, which is holding them back from achieving their goals.

Then an old fear pops up to derail the process. This old fear is called the fear of success.

What is the fear of success?

Fear of success is best illustrated by the following hypnosis session. I will call my client “Melody.”

Melody came to me in 1978 to help her overcome “test anxiety.” Melody was a teacher in a school district located in Illinois. She needed to obtain a high score on her graduate entrance test so she could attend Graduate School at a local university. Melody’s school district had a requirement that all teachers need to obtain a Masters Degree by their 8th year of teaching. She was in her 3rd year of teaching but needed to begin her studies now as she could only attend college part time, while working at her teaching job.

I began my hypnosis induction to relieve test anxiety, but stopped in the middle of it. I took Melody out of hypnosis because I was perplexed. Most of the teachers I knew were always excellent students. Tests where always easy for them and most of the teachers I knew went in to teaching as a result of obtaining top test scores. Test taking as well as test creation were skills where all teachers excelled.

So, I asked Melody, “What grades did you receive in high school and college?”

She said, “I received straight A’s in high school and was on the Dean’s List in college.”

Then I asked her, “Since you have been such a great student in the recent past, why are you afraid of taking one more test?”

She said, “I don’t know.”

I asked her, “What is the worst thing that would happen if you flunk the test?” Melody said, “I would lose my job as a teacher by my 8th year because I would not have my Masters Degree.”

I then asked her another key question, “What would happen if you passed the test.” She said,” I would be able to continue with my college studies and my job.” I then asked Melody, “What would you lose by eliminating your test anxiety, forever?”

Tears welled up in her eyes. Her head nodded and she struggled with the words, “I would lose my husband.”
Melody explained how her husband named Mike had to quit school at 16 and run the family automobile repair business. Mike held Melody up on a pedestal recognizing how smart she is and how dumb he is. He told her many times how lucky he was to have Melody as his wife and knew that if she got any smarter, she would leave him for someone else.

I asked Melody if she would leave her husband if she obtained her Masters degree and she said no. She loved her husband more than anything and would do nothing to hurt him.

I added that the fear she was experiencing was not the fear of taking tests, but the fear of success. If she succeeded in passing the test and beginning her studies in Graduate School, she risks making her husband fearful of her “getting too smart.”

I recommended she confront her husband and let him know of this fear, also letting him know that she loves her job and wants to continue. I told her to assure her husband that she will love him just as much in 5 years as she does now.

Melody went home and discussed her fear of success with her husband. He listened and agreed he was not acting rationally about the situation and would support her to the best of his ability. Melody took the Graduate School Entranced Exam and aced it.

It’s been many years since 1978, but Melody and Mike are still happily married.


The fear of success can be obtained when you question your clients with, “Once your problem is solved forever, what do you lose?” You may be surprised with some of the answers. Until you can help your clients clear the hurdle of what they will lose by achieving their goals, your hypnotherapy will not create permanent change.

Hypnosis Treatment Help: Overcoming Fear

Hypnosis Treatment Help: Overcoming Fear

I have had many clients over the past 30 years come to me to overcome a specific fear. Fears such as the fear of heights, the fear of death, fear of public speaking, fear of losing money, etc are fears that are elevated through hypnosis treatment.

I am not going to talk about these fears today. Instead, I am going to focus on fear that keeps people from achieving success using a hypnosis treatment program.

Fear is an acronym for “False Expectations Appearing Real.”

People come to hypnotists with all types of needs and goals. Clients rarely come to you as a hypnotist and give any thought to the fears they have regarding successfully completing a program and changing or eliminating a negative behavior, forever.

Unless, you as a hypnotist or hypnotherapist can zero on the fears holding your client from success, you have but a slim change in helping your client achieve his/her goals.

Clients come to you with certain mind-sets. Usually the reason they come to you and not solve the problem themselves is because of fear.

They may feel the fear of embarrassment. They may have the fear of rejection. In addition they may carry with them, the fear of failure and the fear of success.

In my next hypnosis training Blog posts, I will focus in on the four fears holding your hypnosis client back from success.

Can Friends Be a Help or a Hindrance in the Hypnosis Process

Can friends help me learn hypnosis quicker and easier or can they be a hindrance?

When I began learning hypnosis back in 1976, I made it a very private thing. Even though I had very supportive friends and family, when I talked about my career plans to some of them, I would sometimes get replies that “hypnosis is the work of the devil,” or “why don’t you get a regular job,” or “you are going to be so rich that you won’t have time for us, little people.”

When learning hypnosis, you are going to need to selectively listen to the supportive friends and relatives and deny the comments by the unsupportive friends and relatives.

Sometimes friends and relatives do not really support you at all. More than anything, they want you to fail. It seems that if you achieve success, it somehow diminishes them.

Some people call this “human nature,” I just call it selfishness and stupidity.

A real friend will always be supportive and is happy with your success.

My first hypnosis volunteer came as a result of a friend boasting about me in front of his friends.

As a result, this friends’ first hypnosis experience is featured in my book, “How to Hypnotize Yourself Without Losing Your Mind.” You can read the entire book free on my Hypnotism Education Website.
Another friend, Joe Ornelas, encouraged me to perform at a Christmas party he had for his employees and friends. This was my first time hypnotizing in front of a large group and it was very entertaining. It lit the fire, and was my starting point in presenting stage hypnosis shows to high schools and colleges.

Friends can be a help and friends can be a hindrance to learning hypnosis. Make sure you selectively listen, keep your goals in front of you, and use the encouragement and help from your real friends to help you succeed in the business of helping and entertaining others.

Motivations for Becoming A Professional Stage Hypnotist

Motivations for Becoming a Professional Stage Hypnotist

Why become a Profession Stage Hypnotist?

Many hypnosis students wonder, why become a Professional Stage Hypnotist? How does my new career affect my friends and family? How much money do hypnotists earn? What kind of a life am I facing?

People decide to become a professional stage hypnotist for many reasons. Most want a business for themselves. Many want to perform in front of people and demonstrate the miracles of the mind. Some go into the business to become financially independent. Others just want to know the secrets behind stage hypnotism. Some people know that they can help others solve issues in their lives and demonstrate hypnosis to obtain clients for future hypnosis treatments or hypnotherapy.

How does my career affect my friends and family?

Your career may allow you to travel and bring your family with you to exotic and some not so exotic places. I like to travel because I love to visit new places and meet new people. I try to spend at least a day or two extra on the road when I can.

Your friends see you as an “expert.” The word professional is thrown around a lot and now seems to include minimum wage jobs, however as a stage hypnotist, you have access to information that 99 percent of all people do not have. You have information that most clinical hypnotherapists do not have. You are truly a professional and truly and expert. You are a big fish in a small pond.

The entertainment value of a stage performance is huge. Your worst hypnosis show will be accepted better than most professional speakers receive presenting their topics at their top of their games. Your show will be more memorable. People enjoy watching their peers and friends on stage. The emphasis is always on the volunteers, and they never let their audience down. In addition to working magic on stage, the professional hypnotist enjoys watching his volunteers as he facilities fantastic and hilarious situations.

How much money does a professional stage hypnotist earn?

Hypnotist’s earnings are all over the place. Since the field is so small of working stage hypnotists and even clinical hypnotherapists, I can only speak from the hypnotists who have shared that information with me over the years and my own personal income. I have been hypnotizing audiences since 1977.

I know some hypnotists who make less than $40,000 per year, and I know hypnotists who earn over $500,000 a year. Regardless of where you find yourself in total earnings, it will always be a function of marketing your services. You need to learn how to market in order to be successful. I have only known one professional stage hypnotist who earns more than $500,000 a year and has a single agent working for him.

I have never used an agent for booking stage shows as I want to be a part of all of the negotiations, however I do work with agents for the corporate market as the budgets are much larger than the high schools and college markets I serve.

In all of the speaking profession there are three basic levels of fees.

Level 1.
$500-$2000 per presentation

Level 2.

$2000-$8000 per presentation

Level 3.

$8000-$15,000 per presentation

(Presidents and celebrity speakers will make over $100,000 a speech)

As a professional stage hypnotist, I have performed at all three levels of fees.

At level One, I have performed at the $500-2000 per presentation at High Schools and Junior High Schools in the beginning of my career.

Most of my High School Stage Shows are in the Level Two Range as of 2003. I enjoy presenting two performances held the same day at in the same school district to maximize my day.

Level Two also represents the fees paid for a single show presented for a small company or the larger comedy clubs. State and National Association Conventions also pay fees in this range.

Level Three represents medium and large companies. They hold corporate meetings at hotels in exotic places. Since they may have several thousand employees attending the event, its not uncommon for large companies to begin at the $10,000 level. They will spend more than that on the desert cake or the flower arrangement at each banquet table.

A stage hypnosis show is much more entertaining than the flowers at the table or a small piece of cake!

What kind of life am I facing?

You are facing a life that isn’t 9-5. You may work 7 days a week or just a few days a week. Since you will be doing all of your own marketing and promotion, you will have to take time each day to answer phone calls, make up contracts, and make outgoing phone calls.

However, you get to take the days off without asking for permission. If you don’t like the earnings you make as a hypnotist, you can perform at higher paying levels. You can give yourself a raise whenever you want.

The downside of the business is you don’t have the so-called “security” you have in earning minimum wage in the United States. Since most of the good paying jobs in the United States will always go the cheaper labor paying countries, Professional Stage Hypnotism gives you a chance to earn a great income and create your own financial security.

On the downside you will have people that don’t believe in what you do and will call you a Satan follower. These may even be your church ministers or leaders of the political parties you voted for in the last election.

However, you will inspire and help people around you. Even as an entertainer you will have people come up to you and tell you about how your hypnosis helped change their lives.

Every week, I get several people who tell me just that. This in itself is reward enough for demonstrating the true, “Magic of the Mind, “Professional Stage Hypnotism.


It is easy and its fun learning Professional Stage Hypnotism. You become a professional in the true sense of the word. You can earn a great living and work the days or nights you wish to work. Yes, there are downsides, but when you think of the tremendous financial and personal achievement possibilities; you may find a professional stage hypnotist career the best career for your life. Click here to enter the wonderful field of professional stage hypnotist.

Hypnotically Yours,
