Five steps that will help you set your goals with a great outcome in mind
1
Know your outcome.
Ask yourself these questions
What is it that you want to achieve?
Be specific ......
How will you know that you have achieved it?
What will you see, hear and feel when you achieve your outcome?
Is this outcome for you or is it for others?
Is this outcome self-maintained or do you need others to achieve this outcome?
Do you know someone who has already achieved this outcome before?
What resources do you have and what resources do you need to achieve this outcome?
Where are you now and where do you need to be in relation to achieving this outcome?
Does this outcome increase choice in your life?
Is there more than one way to get this outcome?
What will you lose and what will you gain by achieving this outcome?
What will this outcome bring to your life that was not there already?
Ask yourself these questions until you have a well-defined outcome.
2
Make your goals S. M. A. R. T Goals
S. Specific
M. Measurable, meaningful to you
A. As if now and achievable
R. Realistic and responsible
T. Timed, towards what you want
3
Get the last step... Of your outcome
What will you see?
What will you feel?
What will you hear both internally and externally?
How will you know that it has really happened?
"What has to happen so that you know that you got it?"
4
Make an internal representation...
"See, hear, feel, taste and smell what that last step will be like"
Step into that internal representation see it through your own eyes.
The more real and the more intense the better the internal representation will be.
Now step out of that internal representation and hold it in your hands like you’re looking at a movie of yourself on a iPad or similar device.
5
Now to take that outcome and put it into your future at the time and date of your choosing.
Imagine floating out of your body, right up into the air, right above now and then begin to float right out into the future taking with you your internal representation, float right to the time and date that you have set for your outcome.
Energise and empower your internal representation with four deep breaths, breath in through your nose and out from your mouth and blow all of that energy into that internal representation, now allow that internal representation to float right down from your hand and right in to your timeline at the time and date that you decided, now watch as the events rewind like a movie and re-evaluate themselves to support your goals all the way from then all the way back to now.... Notice every image with clarity as you focus your attention on the event that is unfolding within your mind, knowing that this is your future, believe that as if it has already happened because when you do this you can begin to take control of your future and that can only be a good thing can't it?
Now when you're ready begin to float back to now and right back into your body and back into now knowing your outcome is right there in your future just waiting to happen.
Remember all learning is unconscious.
The fact is all learning is unconscious, remember when you were learning to ride your bike you may have fallen off a few times and maybe you thought at that time that you may never learn how to ride it.
Then the next time as if by magic you got better and better and you didn't have to think about it anymore, that learning was unconscious wasn't it?
You did not have to think about all the actions like balancing and pedalling and looking where you were going all at the same time?
Because your unconscious mind was already taking care of that for you just like the breath that you have just taken or that blink of your eye lids it's all automated at an unconscious level.
The conscious mind is the goal setter and the unconscious mind is the goal getter
So start setting your goals to achieve the outcomes that are just perfect for you because you can
Can't you?

Mental Hygiene

 
 
 
 

When someone mentions the word hygiene, what thoughts spring to your mind? what images pop into your head?
Maybe washing, cleaning or even preparing food, maybe going to the dentist, after all if you had toothache you would go and see your dentist wouldn’t you? then they would do the work that was required and advise you on how to keep better oral hygiene, now I’m sure you brush your teeth every day at least twice a day Don’t you?
And I’m sure you wash and keep good personal hygiene too and I’m sure when you are cooking that you keep great food hygiene yet when it comes to mental hygiene…. What do you do?

Most people just let their problems build up and up over the years until something snaps or they feel like they can’t go on, they continue to suffer that anxiety more and more, get even more depressed and feel even worse for it, I once did that myself for many years and still do sometimes – yet with a little helping of mental hygiene the table is easily turned

You can change the way that you think and you can change the way that you feel, you can have great mental hygiene and see your life in a truly positive way and there are many ways to do that and some of them are totally Free, like my hypnosis pod-casts

Hypnotherapy can help you locate what is and what is not the problem, Hypnotherapy can help guide you to the outcome that you wish to achieve, one that you do deserve!
Because when you treat your mind with the love and care that you would for other things in your life your mind will pay you back in ways that you wouldn’t believe.

Positive perspective

 

 

The life we live is so fast and so full of things to do that most people never really get to do all the things that they want and because of the way that our mind works we tend to spend so much of our time thinking about the things that we don’t want in our lives instead of the thing we do, we sometimes worry about the past or the future and all too often we let the past influence our future before it even happens, we let our minds run wild with the what if this happens, what if that doesn’t happen and it is never from a positive perspective, this kind of behavior can lead to anxiety and low self-esteem which will only make your life seem worse than it really is.

For example, you could take two people, one with a positive outlook on life and one who is negative then set them though the same events over a 24 hour period:- a mixture of fun and misfortune, after the event ask them about their experience, the negative person will only have seen what was bad about their day and have almost no recollection that fun things had happened to them, it’s almost as if the fun things did not happen at all, were as the positive person will make the best of any event and focus their thoughts on living in the now and seeing the fun parts of the day and dismissing any unpleasant events from their life because they know that there is no value to worrying over spilt milk things happen in life – yet to miss chances to feel happy or have fun and not to live in the here and now it is an injustice to yourself as there is no way of undoing what has passed and letting the past affect your future will only give you more of the same, take responsibility for your life and your actions because when you do this you can begin to shape your life into more of what you do want and even when things don’t go as planned you will see them from a different perspective allowing you to make the best of any situation and recover much faster from any negative event that may happen to you.

So how could you start to change if you’re more inclined to feel or see the negative side of things?

Well the good news is you already have the skills and all that you need to do is change your behavior and if you’re anything like I was you will have got very good at looking for the negative in anything.

Now all you must do is start to look for the positive in every situation, it is the same skill that you have already been using – it’s just like switching the polarity.

So the next time something happens that you would have felt bad about in the past ask yourself how could I see this differently and what could I learn from this, how does feeling this way benefit me and what positive benefits can I gain from this experience? the more you do this the better you will get at it and the better you get the more your life will begin to change for the better, your mind will begin to look for more and more of positive events and begin to delete the negative events from your experience as if they did not happen at all and that can only make your life far better and for less stressful – is that not something that you deserve to feel for yourself?
