February 14th, is the
day we celebrate as Valentine’s Day – the day we send cards to wives, husbands,
spouses, significant others, boyfriends, girlfriends, Mothers, Fathers,
Grandparents, children, teachers, friends, etc. Some people even get
Valentine’s cards for their pets. No, I’m not one of them.
Now when I was younger,
it generally stopped with cards. Now it’s way more commercialized – like other
holidays! Not only do we send cards, but we’re expected to send flowers,
chocolates, maybe even jewelry – gold and diamonds of course! Maybe buy special
gifts like trips to the spa, or romantic getaways.
This is great for retail
sells – even boosts the economy – so I’m sure not going to advocate NOT doing
But let me ask you a
question. Why do we celebrate this showing of love so profusely on only one
Shouldn’t we show our
love, affection, and appreciation for others EVERY day? Of course we should!
There’s one person in your life
who really, really needs this love, affection, and appreciation every day. Do
you know who it is? YOU! I have so many people who come into my office telling
me they don’t have good self esteem or they don’t feel worthy of love, or they
feel inferior to others. Way more common than maybe you would expect. I’ll have
to acknowledge, it surprised me for a long time. And still saddens me to think
a person would feel this way about themselves.
“For me, winning isn't something that happens
suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar.
something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and
every night that you dream.”
Super Bowl XLV will be played in Dallas this year. The 2011 Super
Bowl teams are the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be the big sports event of the year in
Dallas.And yes, people will be
hypnotized by watching the game live, or on TV.
So what do you think? Will Ben Roethlisberger get his third Super
Bowl Ring, or will his off the field personal problems from earlier this year
in any way be a distraction for him? Or will Aaron Rodgers with his laser
precise arm be winning his first?
And when did either of them win their very First Super Bowl?
You’re probably thinking, wait a minute, Rodgers hasn’t won his first yet.
Really? You think he hasn’t?I’ll give
you a hint, it has something to do with hypnosis!
For some reason, it got me to thinking about one of the great
athletes of all time -- Joe Montana. So here’s a question for you. Do you know
how old Joe Montana was when he won his first Super Bowl?
"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
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
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
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
You’re probably still
wondering how the Hypnosis part comes
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.”
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!
