Everyone knows that being a successful athlete involves maintaining high levels of physical fitness. However, this is only part of the strategy required for success. According to research, sports performance has more to do with mental abilities than physical abilities.
Thousands of sports people have recognised the power of their mental state having a positive effect on their sports performance. Hypnosis has been used for many years to help professional athletes enhance their natural ability, train their mindsets and give themselves the winning edge. For example:
*Famous tennis player,Jimmy Connors, used hypnosis in winning the U.S. Open Championship.
*Tiger Woods' mental coach, Jay Brunza, hypnotizes him to block out distractions and focus on the golf course.
*Jack Nicklaus claims that his success is entirely owed to practicing concentration and visualization.
*Wasim Akram's late wife Huma used it with Wasim to help him with his performance. Huma was a psychologist who had specialized in hypnosis, she helped Wasim with his bowling and in dealing with the pressures of captaincy.
*The Pakistan cricket team used it before winning the 2009 T20World Cup.
