Welcome back to another weekly video. This is going to be a controversial video. I am probably going to get banned from every business school in the nation, because this is not what they teach in the classroom. But that is okay, because what I am about to share with you can be so helpful in your career. We are talking about hypnosis in business.
Hypnosis for Business
I have been thinking about whether to talk about hypnosis for a while. I decided to make this video, because when I think over the course of my career, this is one of the tools that has had the biggest impact for me. Just so you understand the scope of what we are talking about: I am going to show you how ten minutes can change the rest of your life. And it is something that is easy to do, and does not cost you anything.
My Own Story with Hypnosis
Let me tell you a story. When I was first starting out in my career, I was a 24 year old business person working in Hollywood in the Entertainment industry. As part of my job I would go to a lot of networking events. I would go to these events, and I would get nervous. There were all these important people, and I was a nobody. And I had a good reason to be nervous, because I was a young kid who did not know anything. After a couple of these events, I realized I was not being very effective. I would not really talk to anybody. I would hang out in the corner. I was not good at networking.
This was a problem for me. I realized if I was going to be a mover and a shaker in the business world, I was going to have to get over my nervousness. I was not going to become successful if I could not be good at networking.
The solution was I started studying hypnosis. I learned how it worked, and then I hypnotized myself. I hypnotized myself to not be nervous at networking events. It sounds crazy, but it is really easy, and I am going to show you how to do it.
How Hypnosis Works
Let me explain how hypnosis works. Hypnosis is the use of suggestion to influence action. This is a pretty simple idea that most people understand. If you give someone a suggestion, it could influence them. But when you start studying hypnosis, you realize that you can take this to extremes. Most people know about hypnosis by attending a show by a professional hypnotist. The hypnotist will bring people up on stage and get them to do all kinds of crazy things. People will dance around and see things that are not really there. This can be a very powerful technique.
Key Concepts about Hypnosis
There are a couple of key concepts you need to know about hypnosis. First, do not waste your time trying to hypnotize other people. It does not always work. That is why it is controversial. It is not scientific, and it is not reliable. So if you try hypnosis as a way to sell products to people, you are just going to look silly. If you say, “I’m hypnotizing you. Buy my product,” it is not going to work. Do not waste your time.
The reason hypnosis is unreliable, is that it only works on people in a highly suggestive state. When you go see a professional hypnotist, they are really good at identifying people in this suggestive state. That is the whole trick. If you can find the right person, hypnotizing them is the easy part. What hypnotists will do is either walk through the audience and select people, or they will bring a large group on stage, and then send back people who are not responsive.
When you have someone in a highly suggestive state, hypnosis can be incredibly effective. It seems like magic. You can give someone a suggestion, and they will do it. So I do advocate trying it on yourself. The real benefit of studying hypnosis is learning how your mind works. The older I get in my career, I am constantly surprised at how much business is a mental game. Hypnosis can help you figure out your own mind, to become a better business person.
Results from Hypnosis
Let us go back to my situation. I would get nervous during networking. Nervousness during social situations is a problem a lot of business people struggle with. So I hypnotized myself. I wrote out a hypnosis script. I recorded my own voice reading the script. It was about ten minutes. I laid down on a couch, played my own voice back to me, and I hypnotized myself.
The results were instant and incredible. From that moment on, I could walk up to a stranger on the street and strike up a conversation. That ten minutes I spent at 24 years old, has lasted the rest of my life.
Here is why it works. When you wake up from the hypnosis session, you realize that nervousness is all in your head. It does not really exist. You are making it up yourself. There is no reason to be nervous. Do you understand the power I am giving you. If you want to stop being nervous, you can simply tell yourself to stop, and it can go away.
My results were very dramatic, but as I said before, hypnosis is unreliable. Your results may not be the same as mine. For some people, hypnosis does not work at all. For some it may work for a week, and for some it can last their whole life.
Other Uses for Hypnosis
You can use hypnosis for different things. I think it is the best for unnecessary nervousness. If you are successful in your career, you are always going to find yourself in new and unusual situations. Unusual situations make people nervous. This might be starting a new job, or being a manager for the first time. Hypnosis is really good for that, because there is really no reason to be nervous. You can also use hypnosis to stop cravings, break bad habits or start new habits.
How You Can Do It
If you are interested in learning about hypnosis, I have made this very easy for you. I am going to put a link in the description for a hypnosis script you can use. It is free. You do not have to sign up for anything. It is just a PDF file you can download. This is a script for overcoming nervousness in business networking. But you can rewrite this for whatever situation you need. When you look at the script, you will notice that most of the script is just getting you into a highly suggestive state. The actual hypnosis is only a small part.

Before you hypnotize yourself. You do need to realize that this is dangerous. Whenever you are messing with your mind, you need to be careful. You need to make sure that you are alone, and that no one can come whisper something into your ear, because that can be very bad. You need to make sure you will not be interrupted, so you can complete the session from beginning to end in one sitting. You also need to make sure you do not listen to hypnosis while driving a car, because you will knock yourself out.
The great thing about self-hypnosis is that you are in control of your experience. You are alone. You know exactly what is being said.
But be prepared that while this is happening to you, it is going to feel strange. It is very disorienting. It may seem like the room is spinning around you. It may feel like you cannot move your body. If this happens, just go with it. Try and relax. You are just with yourself. It is a safe environment, and it is going to be okay.
Hypnosis is not for everybody. If hypnosis seems too crazy for you, you do not have to do it. But if you take nothing else from this video, there is an important lesson here: Suggestion has tremendous power to influence you. You need to become very aware about what you are putting into your head. Are you listening to things that build you up and make you a better person? Or are you putting junk into your head? So if nothing else, try to become more aware of what you put into your mind, because suggestion influences action.
