Empowering YOUR Mind
Help! I'm Stuck!
Help I’m Stuck!... Well while having people’s hands get stuck together is one of my favorite hypnosis demonstrations that would not be a practical way of writing this blog. So while I am not physically stuck right now I have been busy working with many clients on keeping them from getting stuck and abandoning their New Year’s Resolutions.
Statistically only about 45% of Americans still make a New Year’s Resolution and of those, about 29% have already abandoned the resolution all together and in 10 days that number will jump to 36%. Even more surprising is that by the end of the calendar year only 8% of people will have been successful in keeping their New Year’s Resolutions.
So why is that? I believe it comes down to 2 major things: The Road Map & Fear. The road map is that goal you want to achieve from start to finish. If the map is not clear and complete then the goal doesn’t stand much of a chance at success. I think the keys to any idea in life come down to the 6 P’s and the 4 W’s.
The 6 P’s are “Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance”. As i wrote in my first post It All Starts With A Thought, every thing in this world came from an idea. The better the idea = better the end result. The better question = the better answer.
A more simple way to always apply the 6 P’s is to use the 4 W’s: What/Why & What/When. To achieve your ultimate success and accomplish what you really want in life simply follow this formula and write down the answers to these questions and be specific!
What = What do I really want? What is my outcome or end result?
Why = Why do I want this? What is it’s true value to me?
What = What steps do I have to do to achieve this?
When = When I have achieved this goal, how will I know? How will I feel?
The 4 W’s are the roadmap for your mind and your path to success... If you don't have the path clearly planned out then how do you know where you’ll end up? For anyone who wants to see the 4 W’s in action simply hop over to my facebook page www.facebook.com/empoweringthemindhypnosis and post what your goal for 2014 is and I will respond and help you get the clear map to your goal.
Next time we’re gonna talk about how fear can get in the way of what you want... Until next time everyone take care and follow Richard’s advice for shoveling the snow tomorrow!
Ryan, It amazes me how few people stick to their resolutions. You're right about the 6 P's and 4 W's. People go into result ions without much planning and so many of them end up failing because of it.
