The subconscious mind is magnificent. It’s millions of times more powerful than the conscious mind. Consider that you have over seventy-trillion cells in your body. Consider that all of these cells are doing something right now and that your conscious mind has nothing to do with this process. Your conscious mind isn't even aware of this process! These cells get their direction from your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind couldn't cope with this process as it can only focus on one thing at a time.
The subconscious mind is able to do many things at the same time, and as your subconscious mind doesn't sleep, it works twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for as long as it needs to. This is why you’re able to breathe, even while you’re fast asleep.
The subconscious mind is also a goal directed mind which is very unlike the process directed conscious mind. When the subconscious mind locks onto a goal, it's like a heat seeking missile. It will stay locked onto its goal, and work at achieving its goal until it's achieved it. It can do this day and night for as long as it takes.
If it’s true that the subconscious mind is so powerful, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could direct this this tremendous force towards improving results in the field of sport. To consistently win at sport, one needs to have a tremendous desire to win and to believe one is worthy of winning. Both of these qualities are mental qualities, and it's important to realise that winning starts in the mind. All the exercise in the world won’t give you the motivation you need to win.
It’s for these reasons that many professional sports people make use of hypnotherapy to improve their sporting performance. Hypnotherapy is the key to tapping and directing the tremendous power of the subconscious mind. Using hypnotherapy it's possible to lock the subconscious mind onto a goal to win and to create a tremendous desire to achieve this goal. It’s further possible to improve your self-esteem to the point that you believe you’re worthy of being a winner. With simple hypnotherapy techniques it's possible to create an expectation of success and we expect is what we tend to get.
