Keeping, or even getting, motivation can be tough for most of us even at the best of times.
With so much going on in our lives, taking one single goal and sticking to it through thick and thin can seem harder than ever before.
With families, career, household and domestic issues and all manner of things taking away our time, increasing our stress levels and making it difficult to stay focussed, achieving a goal we have set for ourselves can sometimes seem impossible.
Why we need a little extra help to boost out motivation
The problem is, every goal we have decided to try for can seem to move further away from us once the initial interest has waned. At the start of a new year, many of us make strong resolutions to change things for the better, only to find that our interest lessens once we start to make progress.
This shift in focus can happen for a number of reasons.
Firstly, once the initial enthusiasm generated from the new year has faded, it’s always much easier to forget about being motivated, and instead slip back in to our comfortable old habits. Secondly, even if we actually do make progress, this beneficial change can be enough to make us pause, celebrate our initial success, and then revert back to our old ways as a form of reward.
Why most of us usually lapse back in to bad habits
The most common reason for losing motivation, however, is common to most of us – it’s simply a question of our brains questioning the need for change, and arguing that we don’t really need to make it!
How many times have you heard that little voice in your mind state things like “Just one won’t hurt”, or “You’ve had a bad day – you deserve it!”, or even “No-one else is making an effort to change, but they are all healthy/happy/well off/slim!”
That little voice in your head is your brain’s way of rationalising your basic desire to keep things just as they are, without having to go through the effort of making positive changes.
So, how do we keep motivated when everything around us seems geared towards encouraging us to stay just as we are?
Whether we want to quit smoking, drink less alcohol, lose weight or get in to shape this year, luckily there is a powerful and effective way of achieving our goals, circumnavigating that little voice that tells us we should fail, and providing us with the determination, willpower and capabilities to maximise our motivation for sustainable change.
How it works
Hypnosis is a non-invasive and highly effective way of increasing our motivation to succeed.
It is a technique which is used for a wide range of benefits, including cementing your willpower, overcoming reluctance to change, and dealing with that nagging and unproductive voice that makes excuses for you to fail. Hypnosis lets your hypnosis coach replace all of your self-doubt and reservations about succeeding with a powerful affirmation that you can succeed, reinforcing your desire to change while providing you with effective tools for making your goals for the year come to fruition.
The technique works by getting you to feel relaxed enough to let the hypnosis coach bypass your negative self-conscious, the part of your mind which tells you to give up on your goals, and instead plants positive and powerful suggestions within your unconscious mind. This means that when you experience set backs or feel less than motivated, the positive suggestions will encourage you to stay focussed and achieve your goals.
If you’re looking for a positive start to the year, maximising your potential to shine, it’s well worth considering hypnosis as a powerful and effective way of boosting your motivation and achieving the steps it takes to create a happier, fitter and more positive you!
