Did Coach McCarthy Hypnotize the Super Bowl Green Bay Packers?

You may have heard that the night before the Super Bowl game against the Steelers, Coach McCarthy had his Packers measured for championship rings at the team hotel. "He handed out scales, high-end expensive scales. He said to us, 'I'm leaving you with this token. Remember my approach: You need to balance your life between family and work.' I'll never forget it. The scale is the centerpiece of my den." said Mike McCarthy, referring to Dave Checketts former CEO of Madison Square Gardens, a longtime friend and colleague.


Did NFL Coach Mike McCarthy use some form of Sports Hypnosis / NLP with the Green Bay Packers football Players the day before the Super Bowl? Yes, he did!

My guess is, he didn’t tell the athletes on the Team – “I’m going to Hypnotize you now. Take in a nice deep breath, and let it out nice and slow.”

But he did use a very effective Hypnosis / NLP tool with them, whether he knew he did, or the football Players knew he did or not.

What am I talking about here? You may have heard that the night before the Super Bowl game against the Steelers, Coach McCarthy had his Packers measured for championship rings at the team hotel.

It’s been pointed out by General Manager Ted Thompson they would have gotten an NFC Championship ring even if they had lost, but that’s not the point.

Would their ring size (not the size of the ring) be different if they had lost? No, but when you tell a Player he’s being measured for his Super Bowl ring, it makes a big difference – especially since it is BEFORE the game is played.

You’re probably still wondering how the Hypnosis part comes in.

Here it is ...

The Super “Hypnosis” Bowl -- the Ultimate Mass Hypnosis

Super Bowl XLV is now in the history books. And you just got through watching the Ultimate Mass Hypnosis event of the year – until the next Super Bowl anyway.
“The truth is the Super Bowl long ago became more than just a football game. It's part of our culture like turkey at Thanksgiving and lights at Christmas, and like those holidays beyond their meaning, a factor in our economy.” 

Bob Schieffer





Congratulations to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers for the Super Bowl Win and to both the Packers and the Steelers for giving it their all. Celebrations and heartaches for the athletes and fans – depending on which locker room and sports fans you want to ask.

Super Bowl XLV is now in the history books. And you just got through watching the Ultimate Mass Hypnosis event of the year – until the next Super Bowl anyway.

But who really won? The number ONE WINNER – Fox. They cashed a lot of checks from sponsors. The other winners – besides the teams -- the ad agencies that put together the commercials.   And of course all the fans who watched here in Dallas / Fort Worth, or had their Super Bowl parties at home!

What did you think of the commercials? You couldn’t help notice the Hyundai commercials with the obvious references to Hypnosis. Naturally as a Hypnotist specializing in Sports Hypnosis I enjoyed that one.

But here’s a question for you – how many people do you think were Hypnotized during the game? What? You think I’m suggesting that some people went to a Hypnotist for a session instead of watching the game? No!

Using these five words or phrases could SABOTAGE your 2017 New Year's Resolutions:




 
“How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.”  Benjamin Franklin






















Here are Five Don’ts and Five Do’s and One Bonus (Eleven)
to help you Succeed with Your 2013 New Year’s Resolution



1 – Lose – Do you really want to LOSE weight? Do you remember the last time you LOST your car keys, a shoe, your glasses? Did you look for them and hope you FOUND them? Or how about when a person loses a job? Loses money? Or their favorite sports team loses? Does it really make sense that you would want to LOSE weight? No – that word just sabotages your efforts. That’s why people who LOSE weight, generally finds it again.  Instead of "losing weight" - you want to "reduce your weight - be a healthy weight!




2 – Quit – Another negative word. Think back to when you were younger, maybe even just last week. Do you remember someone saying (maybe a coach, parent, teacher, or a friend) to you “You’re not a Quitter, are you?” in that tone of voice that indicated disapproval. Have you ever wondered why the cigarette companies use the word QUIT in their “public service” ads? Because they know that people who QUIT are likely to start back again.  You don't really want to "quit smoking", you want to STOP smoking

USING the “I AM” Self Hypnosis Technique








Today we’re going to talk about how powerful the two simple little words “I am” really are.

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” - John Lennon

You will probably be very surprised after you do the exercise included in the article that you’ll discover some things about yourself. As you probably know, I’m a Board Certified Hypnotist and also an Alpha Process Coach.





This is an exercise I do sometimes with my clients to help them better understand that the best way to find the solution the problem they come to me with is not “why” they have the problem, but rather “how” the words they may be using are possibly sabotaging their efforts to make changes.

Before we even get started with this article, you’ve got an assignment.

Get out a piece of paper and something to write with. You’re going to finish some sentences with the FIRST thoughts that come to your head You’re going to read the sentence and then write FIVE (at least, more is OK) endings.

DO NOT take more than three seconds (OK five at the most) to fill in each blank.

Now, finish the sentence with words that describe you. 
Do at least FIVE.
I am __________________________
I am __________________________
I am __________________________
I am __________________________
I am __________________________

Now, do the same thing with this sentence:
I am feeling__________________________
I am feeling__________________________
I am feeling__________________________
I am feeling__________________________
I am feeling__________________________

And now for this sentence:
I am always__________________________
I am always__________________________
I am always__________________________
I am always__________________________
I am always__________________________

And how about this one?
I am never__________________________
I am never__________________________
I am never__________________________
I am never__________________________
I am never__________________________

DO NOT PROCEED UNTIL YOU’VE DONE THE EXERCISE ABOVE. If you haven't done this exercise, STOP reading and do them. NOW!
You’ve got time!

You’re worth taking a few minutes to learn a technique that will help replace those sabotage thoughts you’ve been bothered with for a while with thoughts that will help you SUCCEED!

Aren’t you?

And besides, no one else needs to see what you wrote, unless you want to show them.

OK, now that you’ve done them, let’s go back and look at what you wrote. You DID do the exercise.  Didn’t you?

If not, go back and do them, otherwise we’re both wasting our time here.Well, I’m not since I wrote this for my newsletter and use it with my clients, I’ve already gotten some value from this.
