As a Hypnotherapist and Mind Coach one of our main focuses on
clients is of course their habits. The things they do every day or in every
situation that no longer suits their needs. These “habits” are usually the
thinking and actions that are keeping them stuck. A quick search on Google will
reveal dozens of articles from all the top business magazines about the 7, 8 10
even 12 habits of successful people. I found this fun and interesting.
Successful people have as many different habits as there are successful people.
My advice would be to take out a piece of paper, a new one every day. Start in
the morning and write down exactly what it is you are doing. Pay conscious
attention to what you do and how much time you spend doing it. Also, write down
the negative thoughts about yourself and your life that you hear in your head
all day long. Do this for exactly 7 days; Monday-Sunday. Be diligent, be honest
and at the end of the 7 days take all those papers and look at what you do.
Look at what you are thinking. Then you will be able to clearly see what
“habits” you have created in your life.
After reading and seeing what you have created, you will be able to
make a better conscious decision on what is holding you back. You see,
everything you are doing now, if gone unchanged consciously is exactly what you
will be doing 6 months from now. The subconscious mind only understands 2
things. Pain and Pleasure. In a nutshell, Pleasure is what the subconscious
mind knows and pain comes from what it doesn’t know. So the subconscious mind
will plan out into the future so that it knows what to expect and creates that
future based on the thoughts and actions you take today and every day. While
this is a very light explanation, I am confident that it will make some of you
go Ah Ha! If you want changes in your future, you must make those changes
today. You may feel pain, your brain may hurt, you may be uncomfortable, but
over time, your changes will be your new habits. If you are in the habit of
saying “I can’t afford that” or “It’s too expensive”. If you are in the habit
of turning down opportunities when they present themselves or never taking
action steps to make your life happier, then you can look into the future and
see that these will not change. Your daily habits help dictate your future.
Choose the best ones.
