And welcome to a new week. How are you doing today? Most of you will without thinking answer: ¨I am fine, thank you, and you¨? And that is fine, we do that out of habit, or we will have big eyes turned toward us. I know, I did for about half a year, not say this, but instead I turned around and said: ¨Oh, you would not believe how bad I feel today, would you like to hear it¨? Most people just kept walking as if I had said I was fine, but there were others that was actually listening to what I said, and they really got scared. Most of them ran away, a few unfortunate souls, said: ¨John, is it that bad, let me hear about it¨. When they said that, I started telling them, I had a half hour complaint about how bad the world was, how children are dying in Africa, and about all the wars in the world, and how some countries kill their people, etc etc etc.
It was a tough morning for those two, they really got to here all that was wrong in this world, all at once. Was that a nice thing to do? No, it was not nice to do it to someone, and it was not nice for me to be doing it. This, because it made me focus on all the wrong stuff, the negative stuff, and I needed to remain positive and happy, but I was not getting there, I did not manage to get happy for that half a year. It became to bad, that I went into a real depression, I literally made myself sick, just by thinking about negative things.
We can all do this, and most of us do, by every day focusing on the negative stuff. We read newspapers, we watch TV, we listen to other people complain, we hear it everywhere. It is scary. There is so much negativity in the world, it is overloaded. I just heard a movie that puts it all in perspective. The reason it is like that, is that we are programmed finished by the age of 7. That is right, by the age of 7 years of age, our brain is finished programmed. We have learned all the stuff our parents do, we have learned all the rules of being in a family, we have learned how to behave in society. How? By watching others, especially our parents, and the rest of the family.
Then we have the proof that our belief can move mountain, look at medicine. Have you heard about the Placebo effect? It is when a person take a pill to get well from a disease, and the person get given the prescription for the tablet, but instead of being given the real pill, all they are getting is a sugar pill, and people still get well. It is not the sugar in the pill that makes you well, it is your belief. You have the opposite effect also. People thinking negative thoughts can think themselves sick, in the clip I just saw on Youtube, they even told you that people can think themselves to die. That is scary, but I can imagine, since they have proved it work the other way, it must be true that we can do it this way too. I thought myself to a bad heart, and I nearly died in the operation, and I had 5 stents put into the blood vessels the year after, because I was so negative. It is hard for the body to create so much plaque in one year.
So what can we do about it? Are we stuck? No, we are not, otherwise it would not be much point in writing about it. I am here to tell good news. It is really good news. I am learning Life Coaching Skills, NLP and a bit of Conversational Hypnosis at present, and through Hypnosis you can alter this very sharply, and very quickly, yes, in fact, you do not have to do hypnosis, in some cases auto-suggestions are enough, it depend on your attitude to change. I have at the moment my girlfriend trying out this method, and she has changed dramatically in her attitude to quit smoking. It is like night and day to talk to her about quitting smoking. Before, she would say, ¨I do not want to stop¨; now she say ¨I am so happy I have started this quitting thing, I feel so much better¨. Is that not amazing? And all just from a few lines of auto-suggestions that she did not even want to believe in a few weeks ago.
So here is the final conclusion; we live in habits, our subconscious mind control our life (90%), we take charge sometimes (10%). If we want to alter something, it is important to alter our beliefs. And most self-development stuff, do not alter beliefs, but just tell us to do more actions. However, to change our beliefs, we have to alter our thinking, and we have to give strong feelings to the new thoughts, so that it actually work to remove the old habit. Through auto-suggestions or conversational hypnosis, you can change the habits of your life.
Get going, produce your better life now. If you like to learn more, get in touch, and we can work on this together. I hope to hear from you, and I have a few more tricks up my sleeves in this regards that I can teach you. So I hope to hear from you. Go into Book an Initial Session, then we will work through the program and we can take it from where you are at.
Have a lovely day, and a fabulous week.
All the Best;
Coach John Eide
