2015 is almost here. What are your dreams and resolutions for the coming year?
Will you try to quit smoking or maybe try to lose weight. These are two common New Year resolutions among many.
Others include not drinking as much, saving more, spending less, being a better person and.....the list goes on and on. In fact there are probably as many Mew Year resolutions as there are people.
Everyone has a different perspective on what that change means.
BUT, the big question is........
after making them how will you implement them in a way that makes them stick?
Here are 10 tips to help you turn those resolutions into the new you.
1. Know what you want.... specifically. A clearly defined goal makes it easier for your unconscious mind to look for ways to make it happen.
2. Write your New Year resolution down. Carry it with you, Read it often during the day. Ruminate on what it means for you.
3. Get intensely emotionally involved with your New Year resolution, Make it so compelling that it touches you deep inside to go forward with the change.
4. Make a list of ALL of the reasons how your change is going to improve your life. What are the rewards you experience as you go forward 1, 5, 10 and 20 years.
5. Make a list of ALL the consequences of not making this change in your life. What will happen to you over the next 1, 5, 10, 20 years as result of not taking action now.
6. Make a vision board. For visual people the process of making a vision board and having those pictures around you is a great support for youre unconscious mind.
7. Get a clear picture, a real sense of what you will be like after you have made the change you desire.
8. Visit your future self as described in Tip #7. Imagine stepping inside your future self "as if" you were trying on a new suit. Get a feel for what that is like.
9. Write a letter from your future self, say from 12 months ahead in December 2015. Things to include in the letter are a congratulations on making the change, maybe sharing how that change was made, how great it is to be living this new way as well as other encouragements.
10. See someone who knows how to get inside youre unconscious mind to tweak the programs you've already got running. Your current beliefs in the area you desire to change are the ones that are holding you back. When you see a skilled practitioner of change such as a hypnotherapist you will be better equipped to to create that change. Relying on will power only gets you so far. When your conscious mind is distracted you will fail. However, if the changes are made at the unconscious level where beliefs are situated then you will have a greater probability of making a successful change.
Did you know that January 4 is World Hypnotism Day. Its a day of dispelling the fears and myths around hypnosis and educating people about how hypnosis can help them access the power they have resident in their unconscious mind.
If ....you're ready to change .....then give me a call and I'll share the next steps for you.
Merry Christmas from the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia.

Have you ever wondered how much time it takes for a smoker to become a non smoker?
This may be especially important to know if you are the smoker considering to make that decision to change. Clients come to see me to create that type of change, as well as many others, and they ask me how many sessions will it take to work? The answer is “It depends”.
There are a few factors at play. The clients level of desire to create change, the level of willingness to participate in the hypnosis session.....you’d be surprised how many people come in to a hypnosis session and say they are sceptical. From time to time prospective clients almost demand one session of an hour to change. This is possible.
Often I found it’s not just the smoking habit, as there are underlying anxieties, stresses and negative beliefs to be dealt with. Now lets calibrate for a moment. You may be thinking I’ll change in one hour, and you may well do when you make that decision. What's your history though?
Take a pack a day smoker who has been smoking for 35 years. 20 smokes a day and lets say 5 minutes per smoke, for the ritual = 100 minutes/day.
7 days in a week means that is 700 minutes spent smoking.
52 weeks in a year means that the time spent smoking is 36,500 minutes
That’s 608 hours or 25.3 days with a smoke in their mouth or hand.
The numbers are adding up, aren’t they?
Over 35 years that means a smoker has spent 1,277,500 minutes attached to a smoke. Or 21,291 hours....non stop. (887 days......126 weeks.....2.4 years...) 21,291 hours repeating a habit...a movement...continuously.....and yet....some clients get upset that they don’t change in one hour.
For me, I want to see my clients achieve their desired outcome....that is...to become a non-smoker. That’s why I’ll take the time to get them started in the first session and then over two maybe three more sessions embed the new behaviour as well as simultaneously deal with old habits, old associations, negative thinking and old patterns of behaviour.
Some clients are surprised that I hold them to account for following through on doing what they need to do to ensure they remain a happy, healthy, confident non-smoker. They might have to read an e-book, listen to my hypnosis recordings or do a task that we mutually agree on. After all, if you’re serious, why wouldn’t you follow through and save your life. You would do it....wouldn;t you?
Until next time.....stay safe
