Bad Habit and Pills – Change Your Mindset

Bad Habit and Pills – Change Your Mindset

Bad habit and pills – that sounds as if I have an awful tale to tell.  Let’s see!

Tablets and a bad habit are on my mind this morning. Yesterday I went to get my repeat prescription for the barrow load of tablets I have to take. BUT – there was an issue ( I still don’t understand what – but there you are – it is a fact ) and the prescription needed to be set up again by my doctor and with luck and a strong wind they will be there by tomorrow.

So by rooting around in the medicine cabinet, I found I had got enough for this morning.

And then Goodness me – NO!….

We were out of Activa or Yoghurt!!    Was this going to be one of those days?

Why was that a disaster – well years ago I had to get over something that for me was an issue. I just couldn’t swallow tablets – no matter how small.

How crazy are we all?

Bad habit – it surely was. I could eat normally – but a tablet in my mouth was a gagging starter.

The time came though where I had to get over this problem.   I had got to get over this as my health depended on me ‘taking the pills’.

Porridge and yoghurt became the answer.   Within no time I was swallowing tablets easily as long as it was with a yoghurt or similar.

Today –  this morning – I had no yoghurt or porridge. Question? – was the bad habit still there.

So I gave it a go – glass of water and what happened?   It was fine – there was no issue at all.    That is the first time I have tried to take tablets with water for many years.   Isn’t the mind weird but wonderful?

Now there is a really important thing here about making changes to your mindset.

Changing Bad Habits – It’s Hard

Conventional wisdom is that it takes 28 days to free yourself from a bad habit. Unfortunately, that notion is just plain wrong. Bad habits are hard to break because they are Habits (notice the capital H). Remember: your brain has put your bad habit in the “automatic” category. Once there, it’s difficult to shake it free.

Yes, 28 days can give you a good jump start. It is probably longer and more like three months to substitute a new behaviour for a bad habit.

But I know from working with Hypnotherapist Adam Eason that behaviours and bad habits can be changed – helped by hypnosis or self-hypnosis.

The definition Bad – can be interpreted quite widely.  Laziness is a good example:

Let’s say that laziness is a bad habit or maybe poorly motivated is like a bad habit.  Then why not get a new mindset on that one.
There is a very popular product in our online hypnosis downloads store called From Lazy to Driven

You Must Want To Change to Make New Good Habits

What ever you own personal issues (yes you have them) make it your first resolution for 2018 –  “I am going to get rid of that bad habit”  That is the FIRST part of going about changing a bad habit – WANTING TO DO IT.

For example
On the sales page forStop Smoking Now – Adam asks the question – Do you really want to stop?  He then suggests that you should not purchase the product if you haven’t already decided that you want to do it.  Nothing will work until you have made that decision.

The arguments for stopping smoking are enormous and a smoker can be shown every reason to stop.  NO GOOD until the smoker has taken that first step. The first step is you making up your mind.

That is the same for all habits.

Want to make the change and self-hypnosis will totally help you change your mindset and adopt a new self image and new mindset that supports that inner feeling.  The change eventually becomes the new reality.

Look through hypnosisfordownload.com and think about your new year resolutions.  As you look at the titles of the self-hypnosis sessions – ask yourself – do I really want to change that.

Disclaimer

A really important point.
Never buy a self-hypnosis product for someone else.   Get them for yourself as you are the only one who knows what changes you really want to make..

You can change AS LONG AS YOU WANT TO.

 

Self-Hypnosis To Control That In Your Head Chatter – Oh And COUPON

Self-Hypnosis To Control That In Your Head Chatter – Oh And COUPON

Head Chatter – that ‘Conversation with Yourself’ that goes on the whole time.  Control it with Self-Hypnosis.

We all have it – It can be very helpful but it can also work against us –

  • stop us from doing things
  • make excuses galore
  • procrastinate

The head chatter is relentless and happens everywhere and is often unrelated to what we are doing.  Oh the day dreaming of a youth in that lesson at school.

For example – if a vicar asked his congregation to come out and write on a chalk board what was going on inside their head as he delivers his sermon – I wonder how many would be able to do that honestly – without embarrassment.

The mind has many more secret ways of working.  I woke up recently having dreamed about teaching an old lady to drive.  What !?!! – where did that come from.  I have never taught anyone to drive in my life.   Dreams and nightmares – that powerful mind.

Consider all the hours that are lost asking yourself all of these questions.
Well – what about this?

I don’t have this problem – but I do have a wife and daughter (perhaps I should leave this one) – enough said.

The mind is an amazing thing and I have spent the last decade (reason for mentioning decade will become clear) learning a thing or to about hypnotherapy, mindfulness and other behavioural therapies simply by working alongside hypnotherapist Adam.

NOW – Timeline And Onwards

I have just celebrated my seventieth birthday and I have written recently about the changes I personally want to make to get what I want out of life in my seventies.
I have three projects in mind and this is an introduction to Project 1. 

Project 1Getting as many people as possible to understand and use hypnosis and other mental techniques.
These talking therapies are totally misunderstood by most people and that is a shame as they can help with all of the mental issues, addictions, self-esteem etc etc etc

So many of the mental problems out there can be helped with talk therapies.

Background Timeline:
Until I was about 60 – I worked in nursing which was a great career.
We attempted to work holistically with patients but it was hard to find the time to really deal with all the mental issues of the care.
One of the things I really got to appreciate though was that patients responded very differently to their recovery from illness depending upon their mental state.  Those that had a positive approach and were determined to just get over the illness and move on, undoubtedly recovered much faster than the patients who were negative or anxious, depressed etc.

In fact – look at all areas of life and you can see the same thing.  How does your football team get on after they have had a couple of defeats – well often more losses will follow … that mind thing.  The manager needs to work on their confidence and vision of winning again.  Imagine it in a focused way and you will be halfway there.

In the last 10 years I learned a lot as I worked with Adam Eason:
As an example –
I have watched my hypnotherapy friend Adam, help to change the mindset of smokers using self-hypnosis audios.

Take Chris – One of my friends who gave up smoking having just used the self-hypnosis smoking course that he bought from our Hypnosis For Download website.  Within a couple of weeks I heard him talking to someone in the pub and saying he was a ‘non smoker’.  His whole self-image and mindset had changed that rapidly.

What you begin to believe becomes the reality – in your mind and in the way you speak and act.  The head chatter changes and works with you – you CAN control it.

I know that if you understand, and learn the skills and techniques, and apply them to change your mindset (control that head chatter) you will be able to overcome many personal issues.  Even physical health conditions are helped with hypnosis.

Life changing!!

My Seventies Decade

One of my three seventies projects that I am developing is to get as many people as possible using hypnosis and other mental therapeutic techniques skills.

I am NOT the man to do that though.  All I have said above is just from me – and I am not trained in the hypnosis field.

BUT what I can do is point you to the best person in the field – Adam Eason.  He could probably pick holes in what I have written above.  I don’t care I am close to the mark.

Adam Eason Hypnotherapist

I am keen to encourage you to discover the secret powers of self-hypnosis.
The best I can do is to point you in the direction of one of the leading trainers in the field, Adam Eason who has written books about hypnosis. and trained hundreds of hypnotherapists.  In fact, in the products on offer below you will see videos of Adam teaching the skills I am on about.

Commercial Bit – I have NEVER done this on a Blog Before.

Here is the real deal from reading this blog post – yes I have a BONUS.

There are two audios/videos that I would like to check out and as you can see they are massively discounted.  They took Adam and myself many hours to produce – but the content is important and I want you to learn from these videos and audios.

Thank You For Reading

This offer is for people that read this blog post.  

Now the head chatter kicks in.
“Shall I try this out” “Do I believe him?” “If I get this – will I watch them?”
“I thought hypnosis was someone controlling”  “I can’t get in a trance”
and other such nonsense.  etc.
That head chatter works fast – see if you can count the words.
Of course I am joking and NOT.

Here is what I hope – I hope you will decide to learn some new helpful powerful self-hypnosis techniques from Adam.

Here are the two products I would like you to check out:

Affiliates Enjoy – 10 Minutes With Jim Rohn

Affiliates Enjoy – 10 Minutes With Jim Rohn

Potential Affiliates – Please Listen to Jim.

Jim Rohn’s words will live on – and know wonder why?   What a great speaker he was – and so much there to enjoy on YouTube.

This Monday morning I set about looking for some words of encouragement for some people I am keen to – lets say – kick in to ACTION

Yes let me say that another way…

This is a message that I am targeting at a small amount of people who I want to help.  They will be invited to come and read this message – however this is for anyone that wants to change their life for the better.

I am focused these days on a retirement project which is all about making money from affiliate programmes. Over the years I have developed websites and set up marketing for many businesses – but always in the back of my mind I secretly wanted to concentrate on all this affiliate stuff.  So I am starting a new chapter in my life – and I so want this all to fly – in fact try to stop me.

There are two strands –
The first – I have some audio products – (self-hypnosis MP3s recorded by Adam Eason) that I am wanting to recruit affiliates to promote and sell – my focus in this blog today
The second – is a project where I will be selling other people’s products as an affiliate.  More about this one another day.

I have a small group at the moment of affiliates trying to sell the audios – but predictably most of them won’t succeed.  Nothing will change for most of the affiliates I have on board – HOWEVER I am on the look out for the gems – the guys who will make a change to their lives – because they want it to happen – and who will find the best teacher.

I watched a YouTube video this morning of Jim Rohn speaking on one of this personal development events.  NOW – to watch this video will take 10 minutes of your time – but WHAT a ten minutes.  Jim sadly died in 2007 but his words and inspiration remains with us and I encourage potential entrepreneurs to collect and absorb the messages.  It is all down to you.

So here it is.  This 10 minute clip will say all I am wanting to say to this group.  I hope it will get them going.

After watching that video I would like you to do one thing that is ‘EASY’

GET IN ON THE AFFILIATE ACTION

The thing that I am really keen for you to do is to get great training. The skills can be learned. I am inviting you to check out NAMS which will cost you $1 for 14 days. You can cancel before joining the membership and there are other options.

You can bet I will be watching for you joining the Insiders Club Mastermind today – and I will be in touch.

Imperfect Action is Better Than Perfect Inaction!!!

Imperfect Action is Better Than Perfect Inaction!!!

“Keith –  I like imperfect. Every time someone exercises imperfect, it gives  ‘permission’ to others to do the same. Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.”

I had that really great message back from a lovely lady – Sarah – who is on our mailing list.   How right she is.

Yesterday I sent out an e-mail which I had entitled ‘I am Surprised I am Sending This…’

AND here is the e-mail sent to our list announcing a new membership website:-

Hello Sarah – There Was A Time I Would Not Have Sent This E-mail – Let Me Explain…

Have you ever had a day where things haven’t gone right.

I think you have!

Well I have had a WEEK like that – nothing specific but – what NEXT!

It even went on into the weekend.

Adam is teaching his diploma students this weekend and my intention was to get an e-mail out to you good people on our mailing list, all about our Inner Circle membership website.   This is very important to us and we want to spread the word.

On Friday morning Adam videoed an introduction to this new web page and we added some images to the video on Friday afternoon – Then we had to do something called rendering to make it compact to work on the web page.

I was checking things over Saturday only to find that the video rendering had not worked properly.

NO…   *&””***!!!
 SO  – We will have to sort the video out again during this coming week.

RATS!…  Every day is important to me at my age.

So I sent a message to Adam to update him.  I was not at all happy as I hate wasting time and I really wanted to get this promotional material out.

********* Overnight sleep  *********

When I got up this morning and heard all sorts of information about Mental Health on the radio, TV and in the papers I had a total change of mind.

My thoughts were something like this:

  • There is a desperate need for more talking therapists.  We teach Hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP etc – we need to train MORE therapists.
  • WHY am I dithering about putting out a page that is not perfect.   Being perfect can slow you down – better to get things moving.
  • Also it would be great to get some feedback. I want to know if I am I explaining the Inner Circle accurately and that the information is easily understood.
  • Why not ASK for feedback? – YES that would be helpful.
  • I finally thought I AM going to send a message today.

So that is what I am doing!

I wouldn’t have done this in the past – perfection was necessary – BUT –  to hell with that now!

WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND HAVE OUR FIRST INNER CIRCLE MEMBERS – AND WE WOULD LIKE YOU ON BOARD AS WELL.

There are two pages for you to check out.

The temporary web page that we have been using describing the Inner Circle Membership is at:  http://www.adameasoninnercircle.com


And here is the NEW promotional page:

The Video is sort of working and you will hear all of the narration from Adam – but something went wrong as you will see http://training.aecollegeofhypnosis.uk/?page_id=12
If there is anything that is not clear on the web page do let me know.  I would really appreciate that.

I hope I have a better week ahead and also wish you the same.  I hope I will be hearing from you anyway – with feedback and hopefully as a new member.

********************************
AND

The open rate of that message was good – click throughs to the website were good – and we got some new members.   Furthermore I can e-mail again when the video has been sorted.

Thank you Sarah – Imperfect Action is Better Than Perfect Inaction!!!

Great News For The Obese – A Little Weight Loss Goes A Long Way

Great News For The Obese – A Little Weight Loss Goes A Long Way

Weight loss is something that really concerned me for many years.  This diet and that diet – I tried so many. Yo yo effect though – I just had to wait a time before the process had to start again.

I did find the answer but more about that in a minute.

One of the things that most struck me was the setting of the target and time to achieve it.  Usually achievable as long as the diet was followed.  However there was not a real reason for choosing the specific target that was just a weight figure.  The real reason I was wanting the loss  was clinical as I had high blood pressure.  If I had kept a target of reaching a weight where I knew more about the physiological effects would the target have been different.

And what would that target be?

Now I don’t read a journal call Cell Metabolism over breakfast – in fact it is almost impossible to read for 99 per cent of people out there.  However there has been a report in there this week about research carried at the University of Washington in the US.

They did some studies on 40 obese people losing weight on diets.

Important weight loss findings:

The first few pounds may be the hardest to shed, but they are by far the best.  Obese people only have to lose 5 percent of their body weight to achieve a marked improvement in their health from rejuvenated liver to a low risk of diabetes. The scientists checked their research participants at 5 percent, 10 percent and 15 percent milestones. They recorded a range of health markers including cholesterol, blood sugar, and insulin sensitivity, a key measure of the risk of diabetes.

Oliver Moody in ‘The Times’ reports that Samuel Klein who is director of the university’s centre for human nutrition said this:

“The biggest bang for your buck”

“The guidelines for treating obesity recommend a 5 to 10 percent weight loss, but losing 5 percent of your weight is much easier than losing 10 percent.  So it may make more sense for patients to aim at the easier target.”

“If you weigh 200 lbs, you will be doing yourself a favour if you can lose 10 lbs and keep it off.  You don’t have to lose 50 lbs to get important health benefits”

The last paragraph contains a very important phrase.

Keeping the Weight Loss – KEEP IT OFF!

The answer for me a few years ago was realising that everything – yes everything was in the mind – I needed a new mindset.

The answer was nothing to do with different foods and calories etc – it was just looking at what I was doing that was affecting the body shape I wanted and the health benefits I needed.

Using a self-hypnosis audio from my friend Adam Eason was the answer.  I was able to change a lot of habitual things that were getting in my way.

  • My portions on my plate were too large and I would often go up for second helpings.  Eating until I felt full (that is actually uncomfortable) and eating too fast.
  • Snacking in between meals – enough said aren’t all those snacks just full of sugar.
  • Using the wrong cook books.  Why are my two most thumbed books now by Dave Myers and Si King – The Hairy Dieters.
  • As for puddings I started by cutting them down in size but in time I began to feel that I didn’t want them and they became quite unpalatable.  Just bizarre – I don’t even want sticky puddings any more.
  • When I see James Martin on Saturday Kitchen adding more butter to his meal I just think UGGHH!

So that is that – I don’t really now have to think about it at all – I have just acquired new good habits.  I am habitually weight sorted.

I really do think that self-hypnosis and thinking about your particular habits that are controlling your weight for you can be your helper.

To get hold of Adam Eason please check out – ‘Mind Your Weight’

The first 5 per cent is all you need worry about – that is great news.

Mental Health – An Important Question For You

Mental Health – An Important Question For You

Many of my blogs are light hearted, bizarre or whatever; but NOT today. 

This is Important and I hope that you will stay with me for a couple of minutes while I am talking passionately about something I care about.  In fact we should all care about this as one in four of us will need mental health therapy sometime in our life.

AND…

I am hoping that somebody reading this will consider training to be a therapist in the field..

Mental Health.

All over the news this morning and in the newspapers there are reports about the Mental Health services here in the UK.  I am not at all surprised and have a lifetime of working in several areas of health. 

More about that in a moment.

Paul Farmer, the chief executive of ‘Mind’, the charity that has led a review of Mental Health services says that there are “thousands of tragic and unnecessary deaths” with many more lives ruined as people struggled to get the healthcare they need.

What is the size of the problem?  

 About two million people a year are seen by mental health services and Mr Farmer thinks this needs to increase by a third.

This will include an expansion of talking therapies (such as cognitive behavioural therapy – CBT) to treat 600,000 more people a year70,000 children offered help and 30,000 more mothers with post-natal depression.

The report is being accepted by the Government and Simon Stevens, the chief executive of NHS England pledged to commit extra £1billion to mental health.

About 400,000 of those offered extra therapy will be people with long-term physical conditions such as cancer or arthritis struggling with depression, anxiety and relationship problems as a result of their illness.

Maureen Baker, chairwoman of the Royal College of GPs said “That we would like to ensure every GP practice has easy access to trained mental health services such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other talking therapies”.

So how many people do you know who have?:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression,
  • Phobias,
  • Addictions,
  • Panic Attacks,
  • Eating Issues
  • Pain
  • IBS
  • Low Self-Esteem

That list is tiny -the funny this is that I am always at a loss where to stop with issues that can be helped with Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.    It doesn’t matter – the point is that so much of health is related to what is going in our mind.

So why my interest – why am a passionate about this?

I worked in nursing for 34 years  and was always interested in the connection between the physical and mental approach to recovery from disease of surgery.  It was easy to see that people with a positive mindset recovered quicker than those that  were negative.  Easy to see but in the everyday life of the ward impossible to research. 

That was just one notable observation – but there were many more but not enough time to research and verify them.

How things have  changed though – I am now involved through my work with a hypnotherapist – indirectly in  the mental side of health rather then the physical.

I left nursing in 1996 to set up a web design and marketing company (a long story).  The companies I most liked working with were health related for obvious background reasons. 

Then I met Adam Eason – a Hypnotherapist who was also training new hypnotherapists.  As we worked together I got to video his hypnotherapy training for use on our website. Adam’s teaching on the Hypnotherapy Training course taught me so much more about the physical / health approach to care.    It is research based and his hypnotherapy is based around Cognitive Behavioural Therapy the whole approach significantly follows my nursing psychiatric training.  

I have seen so many of Adam’s students develop into Hypnotherapists and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapists.  They are now in a great position to help with this new mental health initiative to provide additional therapeutic resources.

My reason for writing this blog post today is to ask you a question.
What are you doing in your life?
Could you train for a really worthwhile career as a Hypnotherapist or Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist?

Many of the hypnotherapists I have met have trained because they have used hypnotherapy for their own issues.  Adam Eason originally started his career because he had a physical condition (psoriasis) which was treated with hypnosis. 

Physical condition – mental solution – How interesting is that?

If you want my guidance at all – I can tell you, just how wonderful it is having a career that really helps people. There is a massive MASSIVE need.  You will get so much out of your work if you can help individuals – nothing is more rewarding.  Just take my word for it.

What is great is that you can start to train TODAY

Please do take a look at http://aecollegeofhypnosis.uk and get your prospectus for Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) course or if you are already a hypnotherapist then there is a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist (CBH) course.

If you get a prospectus and have further questions – you will find my contact details in there – do please feel free to call me to talk about this as a career.  Just take a look – it might be a call for you to do something new and really worthwhile.
