Question: Do you know what the best thing about procrastination is?
Answer: It always gives you something to do tomorrow.
We all have them. Some are big. Some are small. Some are short-term Some are long-term.
Often we feel that we are just coasting along with life, never really accomplishing what we want. We procrastinate, and don’t reach our full potential. The most amazing part is that while many will tell you what they don’t want in their life, they rarely can properly articulate what they DO want. If you keep focusing on what you don’t want, you actually will end up heading in that direction and attracting the negative energy.
As a driving instructor taught me about winter driving: “If you’re in a skid, stop looking where you don’t want to go (i.e. the rapidly approaching snow bank). Instead keep looking to where you WANT to go, and steer in that direction.”
So the first thing to do when you want to achieve something is figure out what you really want. Make sure that your goals are realistic. If you try to set a goal that you know deep down is hopelessly not achievable, you will set yourself up for failure and disappointment. This could cause you undue stress and anxiety.
Try instead to aim for smaller and realistic goals such as:
-deciding to eat healthy snacks instead of junk.
-finding the time take a brisk 20 minute walk every 2 days.
-starting the search for a new job that will bring you more satisfaction.
-committing to spending more time each week with your family.
If you would like to make some changes to help you get what you want and achieve your goals, it is important to prepare and as well make plans for what you want. The idea is that you want to start small, get the ball rolling, and just move forward to achieve the goal that you want.
You have made the decision to go for your goal
Congratulations on taking a step that many never will, because they often aren’t ready to make choices to create change in their lives. After you’ve made the decision that you want to do something, hypnosis is a great way to help you achieve your goal. I’ve had many clients who have been successful at doing this.
Goal setting with hypnosis
The action of setting a goal is a very meaningful and powerful process towards your development and to help you evolve. Hypnosis allows you to get your subconscious engaged and in-sync with your conscious goals. By using hypnosis, you can also learn to relax and let go. You can then center yourself, and learn to cut out the “noise”, so that you can expand your imagination and thought process so you can better focus on what you want to achieve.
Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life! Why not see if hypnosis will work for you, motivate yourself, and help achieve your goals? Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you: (647) 210-8842
I have a friend who is a recovering alcoholic. He has been sober for 10 years and I couldn’t be more proud of him! During a recent conversation, he shared that the number of alcoholics that actually go and get help for their problem is incredibly low. According to an article on rehabs.com, there are up to 22 million people in need of treatment for drug and alcohol use. Fewer than 1% of them get any help for their substance abuse (http://luxury.rehabs.com/alcohol-rehab/statistics/).
I must admit, I found those numbers to be very sad. My friend felt that many who need help, just don’t go and obtain the assistance they require. We both agreed that one has to be ready. And when they are, they would seek support, but not before.
This got me thinking about my clients who come to me for hypnosis to seek improvement on various issues in their lives. I could see that my hypnosis practice was very similar to the situation my friend spoke about. There are many who suffer and want to lose weight, stop smoking, ease stress, build confidence, sleep better, get over fears, etc. However not all people will actually take the steps towards working on their issues and finding relief.
It can be very humbling to admit that you have an issue that you want to work on, and that realization is in fact a huge first step. However as I discussed in my last article, the follow-through and finding the resources to get help is so important.
At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we always offer a free screening to everyone. Even before we accept them as a client. We see if hypnosis will work for them, and to be sure that we can even accept them as a client in the first place. One of the things I tell everyone who comes in for the free screening is that they should be very proud of themselves. They have taken the first step that many don’t or aren’t even ready to do.
By making the appointment to see if hypnosis can work for them, they are making the move towards fixing their issue. That first baby step is so significant, and at the end of the day, isn’t that forward momentum what it’s all about?
So make your move, call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see how hypnosis can help achieve your objective: (647) 210-8842
Many clients who come to my office to quit smoking have tried several other methods, but without much success. They tell me they find the gums, pills, patches, etc., to be ineffective in helping them quit. They also dislike many of the side-effects and most complain about the frustrating pattern of stopping for a bit, and then starting to smoke again.
The good news is that there is help to break this habit—hypnosis is painless, drug-free, safe, and can be very effective in helping you stop smoking for good.
Are you afraid that you may eat more and gain weight if you quit? Well, what if instead you simply didn’t eat more to replace the smoking of cigarettes? Are you concerned that you may have cravings? Well, you might, but if you don’t give in, the cravings will disappear. Each year, tobacco kills more people in this country than the total of all murders, alcohol-related deaths, car accidents and suicides. Wouldn’t it be great to stop smoking now, and start improving and saving your health? And speaking of savings: the average cost of a pack of cigarettes in Canada is about $10.00. So, a pack-a-day smoker who quits will save over $3600.00 per year!
If you’re wondering if hypnosis will work for you, understand that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, and it really is up to you. You have to be truly sincere about wanting to quit. Your success with stopping will depend on if you are willing to pay attention, listen, and follow instructions. Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life!
