Learning 660

When you have  cultivated  a  deep  sense  of  faith  in  your  abilities  and an  indomitable  spirit,  nothing  can  stop  you  from  succeeding  in  all your  pursuits  and  living  with  great  rewards.  

Taking  the  time  to master  your  mind,  to  care  for  the  body  and  to  nourish  your  soul will  put  you  in  a  position  to  develop  more  richness  and  vitality  in your  life.  It  is  as  Epictetus  said  so  many  years  ago:  ‘No  man  is  free who  is  not  a  master  of  himself.’

“Kaizen”  is  actually  a  very  practical  concept. Very.  Think  about  it.  How  could  a  person  possibly  lead a  corporation  if  he  cannot  even  lead  himself?  How  could  you nurture  a  family  if  you  haven’t  learned  to  nurture  and  care  for yourself?  How  could  you  possibly  do  good  if  you  don’t  even  feel good?  Do  you get  the point?” 

We need to think far  more  than  the importance  of  daily  exercise, a  healthful  diet  and  a  balanced lifestyle. Its the  importance  of  building strength  of  character,  developing  mental  toughness  and  living with courage. These  three  attributes  would  lead one  not  only  to  a  virtuous  life  but  to  a  life  filled  with  achievement, satisfaction  and  inner  peace.  Courage  was  a  quality  everyone could  cultivate  and  one  that  would  pay  huge  dividends  over  the long  run. 

What  does  courage  have  to  do  with  self-leadership  and personal  development?”  One can wonder. 

“Courage allows you to  run  your  own  race.  Courage  allows  you to  do  whatever  you  want  to  do  because  you  know  that  it  is  right. Courage  gives  you  the  self-control  to  persist  where  others  have failed.”

Ultimately,  the  degree  of  courage  you  live  with  determines the  amount  of  fulfillment  you  receive.  It  allows  you  to  truly  realize all  the  exquisite  wonders  of  the  epic  that  is  your  life.  And  those who  master  themselves  have  an  abundance  of  courage.

Hypnotherapy for Weigh Loss

Your mind is a powerful force – it can make you believe things, crave things, do thing. Hypnosis can help you to choose and remain focused.

We all know weight loss is usually best achieved with diet and exercise. “Hypnosis can help by changing people’s mindsets and help create an honest relationship with yourself through diet, exercise and counselling.” Losing weight can be a long and challenging journey, not a short term obsession. If you’ve ever tried and failed to lose weight before, it’s not unusual for people to get into a cycle of dieting, overeating, feeling guilty and dieting again which is known as ‘yoyo dieting’ and makes weight-loss difficult to sustain but the answer for this could be Hypnosis especially if you have tried everything else.

Hypnotherapy is a state of inner absorption and concentration, like being in a trance. It’s the most natural way which creates emotional attachment to your goal. It enables a change in your long term habits and behaviours by creating leverage which in turn changes your relationship with food and enables your unconscious mind to work for you. As there is a lot of baggage in our subconscious minds, losing weight starts with a change in identity moving away from your old self to your new self image. It’s as much about how you think than about what you eat. Hypnotherapy begins from within and changes your thinking, for instance – you might eat a carrot and wish you were eating a carrot cake, but with hypnotherapy you can learn to enjoy the carrot and not give that cake a second thought.

How does hypnotherapy for weight-loss work?

Close your eyes. Imagine your food cravings floating away. Imagine a day of eating only what’s good for you. Imagine hypnosis actually helping you lose weight, because it actually does.

Many things have to be change. We have to want the benefits of that change, and we have to want them enough that we’re prepared to do whatever it takes to get them done and with full believe. It also involves overcoming the obstacles that our mind has set up for us.

Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a hypnotherapist targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, using verbal repetition and mental images where you’re feeding your subconscious mind with positive suggestions bypassing the analytical and reasonable part of it. When you’re under hypnosis, your attention is highly focused, and you’re more responsive to suggestions, including behavior changes that can help you lose weight.

The idea of hypnosis is still met with scepticism due to misconceptions about what it is. It is useful to know that during hypnosis you will not:

  • be out of control
  • be asleep
  • be told to do anything you don’t want to do
  • have your memory erased
  • be forced to reveal your deepest darkest secrets.

How it works?

  1. Hypnotherapist is essentially a coach who will guide you into deep relaxation.
  2. Once your body and mind are relaxed (much like a daydream), he will be able to access your unconscious mind.
  3. Soothing, carefully worded scripts can be used to explore a client’s reasons for overeating and suggest new ways of thinking through visualisations. You have the control to reject any suggestions you don’t feel happy.
  4. Slowly you will learn how to replace your negative habits and eating patterns with positive ones suggested by your hypnotherapist.

Most commonly asked questions in hypnotherapy consultations is – will hypnotherapy work for me? The answer is it’s hard to know until you try it yourself.

Hypnotherapy for weight-loss techniques

Everyone has different reasons for wanting to lose weight, some suggestions you might encounter include:

  • Envisioning the body you want or the level of fitness/health you wish to achieve.
  • Imagining how you will feel with your new look and health.
  • Imagining yourself reaching that goal effortlessly.
  • See how much you have improved from today.
  • Imagining how energised and confident you will feel.
  • Realising that the more you exercise, the more you will want to exercise and the easier it will become to do so.
  • Whenever you get the urge to eat something unhealthy, or eat when you’re not hungry, imagine not reaching your goal and think about how that will make you feel.

These visualisations and many more are designed to empower you so that you can take control of your choices. Hopefully you will learn to enjoy the taste of healthy food and stop cravings. By tackling those deep feelings forming the foundations of your eating habits, you can learn to adopt a healthier lifestyle and enjoy doing so.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy:

  • Allows you to stop dieting and encourage you to begin to take care of yourself in a more positive way by eating healthily and enjoying exercise.
  • Help you to stop obsessing about food and enable you to let go of those feelings of failure and guilt.
  • Enables you to combat food cravings.
  • Teaches you to understand your relationship with food and find the triggers that make you overeat.
  • Enables you to start to believe that you can do it that you too can become slim, confident and energised.
  • Helps to adopt healthier eating habits/ portion control
  • Helps to regain control of your weight/ lose weight
  • Helps to control hunger and appetite
  • Helps to overcome Boredom eating
  • Helps to increase motivation
  • Helps to regulate metabolism
  • Helps you stop emotional eating
  • Helps you curb those cravings

Hypnotherapy can allow you to have a change of attitude towards the food that you eat so that you no longer crave for or finish everything on your plate even if you are not hungry. This enables you to enjoy eating healthily and at the same time lose weight in a safe and natural way.

While many people succeed in losing weight in the short term, they often have trouble keeping it off and that’s where hypnotherapy can lead to success.

20 Things highly focused people don’t do

Successful people are those who are highly focused because focus is the key to success. They are the ones who do not deviate from their goal plans and they know what is important to them and what not. Highly focused people are not different people but they do things differently. It is this difference in their working style and pattern which keeps them focused and hence helps them produce results. They live in present situations and don’t worry on the future outcomes. They enjoy their work and love to do it. They don’t do things which can have negative impact on their work. They develop certain habits and follow them on regular basis. They are thoughtful people who judge every act on their priority lists. They just cut off the unimportant ones. They know where to say no. Here are certain things they don’t’ do or avoid because they know these acts will kill their productive time and will deviate them from their success path. Here is the list of such things:

  1. They don’t jump to peep into their e-mails and social networks as a very first job:

Highly focused people don’t check their e-mails and social networks as a very first job. They know better how to focus on their work and start working the real work as a kick start. We have a fresh mind and positive waves in the start of the day. By checking e-mails you are working for the other’s problems and not your own work. While checking e-mails and social networks too, they just utilize these tools towards their goals achievements and leave the rest. They don’t indulge in unnecessary matters. They just do their real work first which is the first step towards producing results.

 

  1. They don’t make silly excuses:

Highly focused people don’t make silly excuses not to work. They are a dreamer, a doer and a believer of their work. They know well how they can concentrate on their work and produce results. They know time is short and they have to produce results in the given time. They know well making excuses is easy, but they know the fact well that it will distract them from their way to success. They just make reasons why not to work. They manage their work activities well in their time and keep on improving until they are well enough.

 

  1. They don’t waste a single minute of time:

Highly focused people don’t waste their single minute of time. They know how to best utilize their time and they even know how to fully utilize the gaps of time they are idle or waiting on. They know time is money and they have to perform in the given time. They don’t excuse, “I don’t have the time,” because they know that the people who succeed also have the same amount of time in a day. They know life is a race and if they do not perform there are thousands of people who are utilizing the same time to conquer their dreams and they will go ahead.

 

  1. They don’t live in their comfort zones and let lack of resources stop them:

Highly focused people don’t live in their comfort zones. They know how to live with constrains and with limited resources. They know better that the person they want to become can only be achieved living outside their comfort zones. They invent techniques using their creativity to reach their goals with the limited resources they have.

 

  1. They don’t involve themselves in the matters that don’t concern them:

Highly focused people don’t involve themselves in the business or people that don’t concern them. They don’t poke their nose in other’s work neither they like other’s poking their nose in their work. They are concentrated towards their goals and how to achieve them.

 

  1. They don’t compare themselves to others:

Highly focused people don’t compare themselves to others. They learn from every positive attribute they find in others. They are content with what they have and keep an eye on other’s achievements to learn the positive insights from them. They try to learn from the predecessor and even from the successor. They are always busy improving themselves that they hardly find time to compare with others. They know comparing to others is never reasonable because everyone is different and have different capacities and capabilities. They are always their self – motivator.

 

  1. They don’t allow negative thoughts in their minds:

Highly focused people don’t allow negative thoughts override them, neither are they moved by the negative feedbacks and critics. They only take it as an opportunity to improve and learn. They are focused and optimistic people. They are the believers and do trust on their work and aim to make positive impact in the world. They believe in themselves.

 

  1. They don’t multitask:

Highly focused people focus on one task at a time and don’t indulge in multitasks. There are some people who indulge in multitasking and keep doing different works almost near to complete 95% – 98% completeness and are not able to finish their tasks and produce results. They just wait to make it perfect. But there is nothing perfect as such. Even in a perfect work, as many times you go through, you can find some place for improvements. So keep this in mind, and go complete your task with full dedication to increase your productivity before you leap on to another.

  1. They don’t gossip and make meetings standing up:

They don’t indulge themselves in unnecessary talks. They don’t feel the need to talk critics and look down about others as they are themselves busy in achieving their own goals and don’t indulge in backbiting talks of others as they consider it as their productive time killer. They make meetings standing up so that they don’t waste their time in unnecessary talks.

 

  1. They don’t procrastinate: Highly focused people don’t procrastinate. They know well what is to be done now and what later. They are mindful and have clear vision and live in the present situation. They just work on their priority basis. They don’t peep out of their minds over the unnecessary jobs. They focus on their goals and work to accomplish them. They know better that a good plan executed today is far better than the great plan executed someday.

 

  1. They don’t entertain distractions: They limit themselves to their tasks on hand and do not entertain distractions. They are highly focused to produce the end results. They keep themselves far from e-mail, social media and chat alerts. They also keep themselves far from people who make them distract from their work. They know very well that such distractions can cause effect on their work quality and hence deteriorate it. They manage their activities well within their productive time.

 

  1. They don’t judge people and make comparisons and seek validations from others:

Highly focused people believe in their work and themselves. They know if they themselves don’t believe in their work why should others bother about it. They work for themselves first then for others. They work for their own self-growth and they are focused on their own work. They know that everyone has a story which has made them and every story is different. They don’t compare themselves with others except with the person they were yesterday. They present their work in the best possible way and can prove it to be right. Here I would like to quote few words of Mr. Ratan Tata, who says, “I don’t believe in taking the right decisions, I take decisions first, then make them right.” That’s the spirit with which they work.

 

  1. They don’t allow disorganization:

Highly focused people don’t allow disorganization in their lives. They know well that there should be a place for everything and everything should be in it’s place. It saves a lot of time and you can get instant access in the time of needs. It also helps them to boost their productivity, otherwise a lot of time is wasted to procure the items when they are needed, which have an adverse effect on our productivity as well as generates stress.

  1. They don’t fear to take risk:

Highly focused people are never afraid to take risks. They just do what they ought to do and just do their tasks. They don’t let fear dominate their lives and worry about the results. They know if they don’t do it now, it cannot be done. Who has seen tomorrow? They take chances and grab every opportunity which comes their way. They know better how to grab every possible opportunity, they come across. They don’t bother to change their profession, to dare any challenge, or to go for some new project. They take risks to succeed and experience from the failures. They don’t want to regret on not taking risks in the end.

  1. They don’t dwell on the past:

Highly focused people don’t dwell on the past. They learn lessons and take experiences from their past and live in the present. They let go the things which happened in the past because their desire to success is always greater than their fear of failure. They learn from their mistakes and keep going on.

  1. They don’t act randomly but prudently:

Highly focused people don’t act randomly but prudently. They judge before doing and take time to act with prudence. They stick to their goals and keep pushing themselves towards it. Even when they feel low they go back and think why they started and it gives them a boost and increases their motivation level towards their goals. They are of the thinking “when other’s can, why can’t I?”

 

  1. They don’t have unrealistic expectations:

Highly focused people don’t have unrealistic expectations. They are patient people and do work for themselves. They know there are no shortcuts to success. They work with full concentration and focus to produce results, they are realistic and they know well life is not easy. They know well how to dance in the rain. They know unrealistic expectations are only the source of stress and frustration. They don’t panic when the outcomes don’t go as planned, rather sit back calmly and monitor where they lacked the focus and what went wrong.

  1. They don’t say yes to everything:

Highly focused people don’t say yes to everything. They know well where to say no and where to cut off, they do that politely. They know that they can’t please everyone, they focus on their own priorities and they don’t bother about others if they did not give value additions towards achievement of their goals. They know that they can’t judge others and what they think about them. Those who bother don’t need any attention and to others it doesn’t matters. Research conducted at the University of California in San Francisco shows that the more difficulty that you have saying no, the more likely you are to experience stress, burnout, and even depression. “No” is a powerful word that you should not be afraid to wield. Saying no to a new commitment honours your existing commitments and gives you the opportunity to successfully fulfill them.

  1. They don’t look backwards and quit:

Highly focused people don’t look backwards on the way they have started. They only move forward. They know that the road to success is not that easy and it required lot of efforts, hard work, and continuous dedicated efforts to achieve anything worthwhile. Highly focused people are tough people who never quit. They know that failure is an unavoidable part of their growth process and they have to work harder and smarter when the time demands and they keep an eye on their goals and investigate where they lacked in order to get succeed. They are hard determined people whose will power can shake for a while but they never allow themselves to quit because they know they have to succeed in any way possible. They investigate the root cause and what was the reason they couldn’t make it, they learn from their failures and again try to succeed till they actually get success.

 

  1. They don’t blindly accept what they read on the internet as truth without thinking about it:

Highly focused people don’t blindly accept what they read on the internet as truth without thinking about it. They make their own judgement based on their so far accumulated knowledge and look at the source and relevance of any material on their work and lives. They just take the relevant excerpts and leave the rest.

That’s all I added up to this list of 20 things highly focused people don’t do. Do you have any other? Please leave a comment.
