Get Motivated

What Does it Take to Get You Motivated?

Get Motivated - Divine Mind Institute“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” – Les Brown

Are you one of those motivated people who jump out of bed in the morning ready to tackle the world?

Or are you someone that struggles with moving forward either in individual tasks or with life in general?

Lack of motivation often looks like lack of ambition. You may

  • Not be motivated to learn
  • Not be motivated to take on more responsibility
  • Not be motivated to tackle challenges
  • Not be motivated to make positive changes in your life:
    • Weight loss
    • Stop smoking
    • Getting more exercise

Motivation is about attitude

What motivates you to make changes, overcome obstacles or become more responsible?

Not everyone is naturally motivated…it often takes a reward or sometimes even a threat to get you going.

The smoker may develop a health problem or the person who wants to lose weight may want to look good for a special vacation.

Lack of Motivation - Divine Mind InstituteBut even those “motivators” don’t keep you going.

Keeping your attitude in a motivated state can be challenging as our subconscious mind takes over and puts up barriers or roadblocks to our success and causing you to lose focus on your goal.

You Can Get Control, Get Motivated and Stay Motivated

Hypnosis is an amazing tool that can put you in charge of your life, and help you be motivated to achieve your goals, whether you want to excel in sports, at work, in school or stop biting your nails.

Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious,  the most powerful part of your mind. It helps recognize those barriers that keep you from success and then helps you visualize what success will look like through the power of suggestion. It will give you the motivating drive to make the positive changes you want and become the person you always knew you could be.

By using Hypnotherapy you will be able to become more open to the possibilities, believe in yourself, be more motivated and have a more positive outlook.

Independent or Codependent

Are You Independent or Codependent?

Independent or Codependent - Divine Mind InstituteBeginning in our early childhood, most of us sought to be independent…as our parents can attest when we said “I can do it myself!”

According to Dictionary.com, being independent means we don’t rely on others, we think and act for ourselves.

Of course we realize that in reality, being independent is having good self esteem, being capable and acting upon it. We also realize that none of us are ever totally independent, we need other people around us for many reasons.

Co-dependency

On the other hand, the codependent person is someone who has low self-esteem and is typically passive. They usually have a need to care for someone else, but neglect their own needs in the process.

The codependent person

  • Is an enabler who feels the need to rescue someone while covering up that person’s behavior.
  • Feels they never do enough for others, which leads to feelings of guilt.
  • Has possibly been mentally, physically or verbally abused by either a parent, a partner or a spouse,
  • Cannot refuse someone else’s plea for help, but has difficulty asking for it themselves.
  • Goes to great lengths to avoid confrontation and arguments to maintain peace, they don’t like to “rock the boat”.
  • Resists change
  • Codependent Worrier - Divine Mind InstituteWorries too much about what other people may think of them (low self esteem)
  • Is a “pleaser”, always wanting everyone to always be happy.
  • Feels inadequate and when they make a mistake they feel badly about themselves.

Where Co-dependence Began

We all started out with a desire to be independent as we tried to show the world we were getting big enough to do things ourselves, but somewhere along the line, usually during childhood, this unhealthy behavior began.

Because you want to correct this negative behavior, it’s important to understand why it started in the first place, something you may have no idea about. This is where hypnotherapy can help you. It is the perfect tool, that communicates with your subconscious, where all your memories are stored, which can help you uncover what in your past triggers this negative behavior.

Hypnosis can also help you begin to love yourself, which will enable you to understand and respect your own needs and begin to take care of yourself. It will help you build your self esteem, giving you the power of assertiveness, interacting with other people in a much healthier way. Although the cycle of abuse may have physically stopped, it still goes on in your head…this can stop!

In short, hypnotherapy will help you take back your life so you can enjoy it!

Bottled Up Anger - Divine Mind InstituteKeeping your anger bottled up is not a good option, because you are not letting go of the feelings, and they won’t just go away.

If you have ever been around a person who is extremely angry, someone who seems out of control, you have probably thought to yourself…”relax, just let it go”. Which is exactly what they can’t do. They can’t release the anger.

That is where hypnotherapy can be a great tool, it can help you let go of your anger. Hypnosis helps the mind and body to totally relax and communicate with your subconscious mind. It is then that you may discover why you react to things the way you do, and retrain the way you think to be able to deal with people and situations in a calmer and more acceptable way.

Take back control of your life – let go of your anger – lead a happier life

Imagine your life without anger!

Thankfully most of us have more positive than negative habits,but it’s the negative ones that keep us from being all we can be.

Habits are automatic things we do everyday, all day, oftentimes without even realizing we are doing them, in fact we don’t really plan on doing them.

They are a learned actions or reactions that are based on experiences or memories you have stored in your subconscious mind. You may not consciously remember them, but your subconscious remembers everything.

They may be related to stress, fear, uncertainty or or lack of confidence.

It usually take more than just sheer will power to change these negative behaviors, which doesn’t mean you are weak or unsuccessful, it simply means that whatever is triggering the behavior is deeply embedded in your subconscious.

“Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.” Fitzhugh Dodson

There is a song from the musical “The King and I” called “Happy Talk” which says:

“You gotta have a dream, if you don’t have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?”

What are your dreams, your hopes, your aspirations to become a better you?

We all have things about our lives we would like to change and improve…maybe you’d like to:

Whatever goals you have for self improvement are worthy goals, goals that deserve to be achieved.

How many times have you set goals, only to realize a few months later that you have strayed from the path you set

What stops you From Achieving YOur Goals?

Many of the reasons for the unwanted habits we desire to change are hiding in our memories and former perceptions, and it is those situations from our past that keep us from being successful. And although we may not consciously remember them, our subconscious, because it remembers everything, is well aware of their existence.

Think Thin

Think Thin and Stay Thin

Think Thin - Divine Mind InstituteIt’s been an effort, but you have lost the weight…the question is: “Can you keep it off?”

Weight loss and keeping the weight lost is a challenge for so many Americans. Most diets are only temporary “fixes”, that leave the dieter hungry and eager to return to their former eating habits. The problem is, those are the habits that originally caused the excess weight gain.

In order to keep the weight off, new life skills must be learned, skills that will make you feel good about yourself, help you be successful and help you think thin. Hypnotherapy can help you recognize and understand those things that will help you achieve your goals.

Why don’t diets work?

Medical professionals and experts  recommend you lose between 1-3 pounds per week. But most people are very anxious to shed those unwanted pounds, so they try crash diets and diet aids that claim quick results. Losing weight faster than recommended can cause:

  • Muscle loss
  • Hair loss
  • Injury to heart and other organs
  • Gall stones

If you consider the fact that your weight gain happens slowly, it stands to reason that it is safer for it to come off slowly.

Why do You Gain Weight?

  • We often eat because of habits…it’s noon, time for lunch. The question is: Are you hungry?
  • We eat for the comfort food can give us when we are feeling stressed, depressed, nervous or anxious.
  • For people trying to stop smoking, food becomes a substitute for cigarettes.
  • Lack of exercise. Weight gain occurs when we eat more calories than we expend, regular exercise can help burn the extra calories.
  • Weight Gain During Pregnancy - Divine Mind InstituteBelieve it or not, aging can help cause weight gain. Many people, as they age become less active and lose calorie burning muscle, which is typically replaced with fat.
  • Many women gain weight during pregnancy.
  • Boredom is a big culprit for weight gain.

Think thin and stay slim…it can be done!

Hypnosis, together with NLP is an effective way to to begin thinking in a new way. By tapping into the power of your subconscious mind you will be able to learn and implement tools to help you eat healthier, enjoy doing it and keep the weight off.
