As we enter another new year with a whole set of New Year’s resolutions we have every intention of keeping, most of us believe we will probably fail in the end. So why set ourselves up for failure in the first place? Actually, you can successfully meet your New Year’s resolutions if you go about setting them wisely by understanding where you’ve gone wrong in the past!
Choosing Your Battles
The whole point in setting a New Year’s resolution is to work on changing something you’ve been unsuccessfully battling in the past. For some people, this could be an attempt to shed unwanted pounds while others might want to be better organised. Some of us have cluttered our lives to such an extent that we waste precious time which we could be spending on productivity at work or having fun on family events.
No matter what your resolution is, the thing you need to understand is that you will be working on new behaviours. The reason you need to resolve to change anything at all is because you have gotten into a rut of doing the same things over and over again. You have learned to behave in a certain way and it’s time to retrain your body and mind to act differently. That being said, it isn’t easy to learn new behaviours unless you have a little help along the way.
The first thing you should do is simplify your list of resolutions. Choose your battles wisely and work on one or two at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so trying to do too much, too soon, will often set you up for failure!
Mind over Matter?
Now then, we get to the crux of the matter. In order to be successful at meeting your New Year’s resolution you need to recognise that it’s often a case of mind over matter. Your mind is much more powerful than you give it credit for, but controlling your thoughts may be a problem. This is where hypnotherapy can be an invaluable aid.
Call it reprogramming your thought processes, or auto-suggestions that help us respond differently to given situations, but in either case, it’s all about giving your mind power over the physical world. Whatever you choose to call it, hypnotherapy can help you overcome the thought processes that lead you to behave in certain ways you are trying to change.
Hypnotherapy reaches the subconscious levels of your brain so that your new reality is what you perceive as habit. Instead of consciously telling yourself how you should act in a given situation, your brain tells you that this is how you respond. It’s amazing how effective hypnotherapy is on a subconscious level!
The New You Is Your New Reality
Summing it up, you are seeking a new reality with your New Year’s resolution. If your mind believes that this new reality is how you act and react, then it will happen just that way. Once you need to think about what you are doing, it no longer comes naturally as a habit. If you finally want to be the new you, let the subconscious levels of your brain control your actions. That’s the new you with a whole new set of habits to live by. This is what you have been missing all those years. Let 2020 usher in a new you with a whole new set of habits you never knew you had.
Live the new year as a NEW YOU by letting your mind control your new habits. That’s the secret you’ve been missing all these years!
