Interview With Bob Gebelein, Author Of The Mental Environment

The issue of lack of concentration is not limited to young children only. Many adults complain about it and look for advice on how to increase concentration. During coaching sessions, I have come across many such requests and here are some tips that I found to be most effective.

I don’t think Manuel knew where he was, and he had that “blank stare” about him. He would look around as if he was in a daze! It was so sad to see another human being, who had no idea where he was! Some people have really been dealt a terrible hand in life…and Manuel was one of them. After about two weeks in the ward, he was moved to another facility, which would take better care of him, and he would spend the rest of his life in an institution! A sad story indeed!

The insanit√© esprit of infants are not yet capable of inventing ways for them to willfully stimulate their growth. Instead of that, they are endowed with intensely inquisitive natures which lead them to touch, smell and manipulate everything they see and can reach. It is this ‘meddling’ nature of babies that we have to use to teach them the skills they need to learn.

No one has ever gotten stuck in hypnosis. The only reason a person would stay in hypnosis is because it feels fantastic to be so relaxed and focused. Some people do not want to come out of hypnosis because they do impaired mental faculties not want that feeling to go away. The worst thing that would happen if the hypnotist left or suddenly died while the person was in hypnosis is that the hypnotized person would most likely fall asleep and wake up feeling really good.

Lost love in may lead to alcohol abuse. A person who previously drunk occasionally, starts drinking daily and heavily. This affects your life terribly. Your work suffers. It may lead to accidents. It may lead to further loses say your job, your life and even alienates friends and family around you. You are not in control your faculties any more.

There really is a load of crap out in the hypnosis world today. In today’s world, people are learning more and more to think for themselves and do not like to be told what to do. All of that old “you are getting veddy, veddy sleepy” stuff is outdated and ineffective. Thank goodness that science and psychology (as well as many great hypnotists) have elevated hypnosis to a much higher plain today. Although I still think there is some great value in direct hypnosis (in certain situations), my personal feeling is that indirect/conversational hypnosis is, by far, on the “razor’ edge” as far as effectiveness and being up to date.

Most people do not face life in the right way. They neutralize a large part of their effort because their mental attitude does not correspond with their endeavor. They discourage and drive away the very thing they are pursuing by holding the wrong mental attitude towards it. To be ambitious for wealth and yet always expecting to be poor, to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for is destructive.

It is easy enough to learn how to increase brain power. The challenge, of course, lies in keeping the habits up, even after a week has gone by. But if you put your mind to it, I’m sure there is nothing you can’t handle. Your brain is very powerful. Don’t let its potential go to waste. Eat healthy, exercise your mind, and find time for rest and relaxation.
