Normally, when a person is focused on something that truly interests them, such as playing music, rebuilding a car engine or cooking a gourmet meal, their mind is less distracted by other things. However, it can be much more difficult for them to concentrate on something they consider more mundane, such as studying calculus, writing a report, or designing a presentation for work. Plus, tv, cell phones and the internet are constant distractions. Whether at school or at work, being able to maintain a quiet focus may be as hard as ignoring a hovering mosquito.
Both NLP and hypnosis have been very successful in helping clients dramatically improve their concentration. NLP (neuro linguistic programming) offers a new approach of assisting clients with how to transfer the skills they used to effectively focus on a favorite project to another more challenging endeavor.
The subconscious mind embraces the metaphorical power of stories as vehicles for transmitting the hidden message that “anything is possible.” The power of these stories, while in hypnosis, not only inspires great self-confidence, but also helps reinforce to the client the real long-term payoff as a result of their perseverance.
