Every time someone mentions hypnosis, the first image that comes to mind is grandpa’s pocketwatch balancing in front of someone, and five minutes later, the hypnotized person is quacking like a duck or running in the house pretending to be a chicken. Actually, hypnosis is about overwhelming the conscious mind and making it want to escape to the subconscious. It’s a state of mind we reach several times a day; it happens when we drive our car home and don’t remember doing it or when we are watching a movie or TV. When we are hypnotized, our minds are in a state entirely open for suggestions; that is why advertising works so well.
Today, our guest, Robert Radnoti, a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Podcast Host, and Life Coach, explains how hypnosis works and enlights our show with his infectious positive energy. Robert is a Chemical Engineer with experience working for Exxon, who then decided to become a high school Track and Field Coach, and then moved to a University Division One Program and became their Head Coach. As a Head Coach of Pepperdine University, he had to compete with UCLA and other prominent universities. He wanted to beat them so badly that he thought of learning hypnosis to hypnotize his students and help them run faster.
The good news is that after a few hypnosis sessions, some students started improving their performances. The bad news is that Robert’s Athletic Director called and informed him he wasn’t allowed to do that.
In this episode, Robert shares parts of his incredible life journey from Chemical Engineer to Track and Field Coach to Hypnotherapist. We explore the benefits of hypnotherapy, understand how our mind works a little better, and get some valuable tips to implement in our lives and get the best of ourselves.
Tune in to episode 4 of Maximum Octane, and learn about the power of rewiring our minds, hypnotherapy, and positive thinking.
