How to Transform your Life – Part 2

Where is Your Imagination Taking You?

In Part 1 of “How to Transform Your Life” we looked at the 3 steps to setting and achieving goals:

1. Set your goal.

2. Monitor your results (feedback)

3. Adjust your behavior until you achieve your desired outcome

Like I mentioned in part one, I have clients who come to me looking for hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP to change their lives while having no idea of the result they are looking for. In order to get anything in life you have to set an outcome. That was part 1. Now let’s look at part 2.

Monitoring Your Results (feedback)

As Albert Einstein once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” What I believe he was saying is that when things aren’t working the way you hoped they would you have to do something different. That’s what the steps monitoring your results and adjusting your behavior are all about.

It’s the only way anyone can reach their destination.

Since I live in San Diego I like to use this analogy. Let’s say you are flying from San Diego to Hawaii. Hawaii is your destination or outcome.

After your plane takes off and is in the air your pilot sets the plane’s controls on autopilot. Its job is to take you to Hawaii but as you fly toward Hawaii the headwinds blow your plane off course a degree or two. The plane’s GPS understands this and sends feedback to the plane’s autopilot.

This feedback helps the autopilot reset the plane’s course back onto the correct heading toHawaii. This automatic course correction happens constantly as you are traveling toward Hawaii. If it didn’t, you’d miss Hawaii completely and perhaps run out of fuel over the Pacific Ocean. That’s the importance of the autopilot monitoring your plane’s results.

The same goes for you and your goals. It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a trip fromSan DiegotoSan Franciscoor to graduate from college, you need to have a roadmap to your destination. You need to set your destination in your GPS system. That’s why you set goals; they give your system that destination. Goals work like an autopilot and GPS system to keep you moving in the direction you want to go in life. Once you are moving in the direction of your goal then you monitor your results to make sure you get to the right place.

Adjusting Your Behavior

Now that you’re on your way you take the feedback your GPS system is giving you and make corrections. Let’s say that your goal was to change your weight to 135 pounds. You start off doing well, and drop down from 158 to 150 pounds in a month. You’re stoked! Then you go 3 more weeks and find you are now at 151 pounds. What’s going on?

Well, in this case you need to first realize that you need to monitor more than just your weight. How much were you eating the first four weeks in comparison to the next three?  How much exercise were you doing? If you are only monitoring your overall goal, that of obtaining the weight of 135 pounds, you might miss all those other indicators you need, like the calories you eat and burn, in order to reach your ideal body weight goal. So the lesson here is to know what type of feedback you need in order to reach your goal. Once you know all the measurements keeping track of your progress is easy. Knowing what helps keep your progress on track makes it easy to make adjustments. This is the same for any goal.

Your Subconscious Mind is Your GPS System

In most cases your subconscious mind works as your GPS system. This is because over the years you have programmed your subconscious to respond automatically in certain situations. This is actually a good thing in most cases because it let’s your conscious mind do all the reasoning work you need it to do. But sometimes your subconscious mind needs to be rewired. That’s where hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP can come in.

Using Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP to Help You Shift Behaviors

If someone forgets to reprogram the GPS system of an airplane to the plane’s new destination you will end up in the wrong part of the world. While you or I might have a great deal of difficulty doing this, to an expert it’s a simple task. You could use a manual to help you but if you had an expert teach you how, you could do it quickly and easily.

The same goes for your own internal GPS system. There are times when you need to reprogram it with updated date. Now this can be fairly simple – if you know how. Using the tools like hypnotherapy and NLP you can make quick and lasting shifts in your behavior. While you can learn these from a book you can shortcut the time needed to make these shifts by finding an expert.
