Using Hypnotherapy To Stick To New Year Resolutions

How you carry out the resolutions you make determines a large portion of your success in life. The way you think about them and plan them out makes all the difference in whether or not you will fulfil them. In my experience as a hypnotherapist with top achievers, most people are ill-equipped to achieve their goals because they cannot for various reasons commit to the simple habits that are needed for a person to achieve them. Using hypnotherapy as a tool can help you in this process. Here is how.

Getting Started with Hypnotherapy

Sadly, the tradition of New Year’s resolutions has legitimized procrastination. Millions of people postpone getting started in the hope that the year-end will provide a better terrain for new projects, and that the new year will miraculously allow for the best conditions to materialize. Those who achieve more success know a simple truth: it is always bad to wait for an ideal time. There is no such thing as a better time or the best time. 

The irony is that our fast-paced lives have provided us with a good excuse to procrastinate. There is never enough time to complete all we set out to do. As a result, few allow themselves to pause and re-examine their progress. But you should be doing the exact opposite: you should give yourself some breathing space and re-adjust your trajectory as often as necessary. The faster your lives, the more checkpoints you should have. A fast pace means that you should re-examine your trajectory more often, or you might end up very far from your objective. That’s why you should avoid the trap of New Year’s resolutions.

Hypnotherapy can help avoid procrastination, so you can unleash your motivation and gather speed to reach your first milestones. Many of you want success but are afraid of its by-products: will I lose friends? Will I reach my limits? Will I have no more room to grow? These fears can end up sabotaging you, delaying initiatives, and bringing you back the next year with the exact same set of goals.

Aligning Yourselves with Your Dreams through Hypnosis

Have you ever found yourself trying to achieve the same goals many years in a row? If the answer is yes, find ways to reduce the distance between you and your goals. For instance, if your objective is to read two books over the Christmas holidays, find the most interesting books on the subject you are the most passionate about. And make these books very visible. If you find yourself sabotaging your best efforts to set up the stage, then it is time to revert to the method used by champions: hypnosis. You can either see a hypnotherapist or download a self-hypnosis app. It is only by working with the thoughts that created distance between you and your goals, that you can come closer to them. By changing your mindset, you can change your habits and naturally reach your goals. 

Determine clear goals 

The number one reason that most people fail to carry out their resolutions is that they have unclear and broad goals. They focus on the nice-to-have objectives because everybody sets new intentions for the year. These resolutions are often vaguely worded and follow a pre-determined script. People might feel compelled to come up with some goals that they do not really intend to carry out. 

Those who achieve their goals have clear and simple goals. The more precise and clearer your goals, the more likely you are to reach them. A hypnotherapist can help you flesh them out and unearth the inconsistencies. All goals must reinforce each other. If not, they end up canceling each other out. 

Replace the New Year’s Resolutions with a Series of Micro steps

You can go a long distance with your resolutions, but this distance can only be meaningful if you head in the right direction. If you intend to go into unchartered territories, you will need to pause often and measure your progress before going further. You might find that you stop to make inroads at different junctions for different reasons: lack of confidence, fear of success, fear of failure, lack of motivation, or anger management issues. Hypnotherapy can help you face all these challenges. It can help bring forward the skills that you have not had time to develop.
