Self Hypnosis In Action

Goals – What’s Holding Me Back

By on December 28, 2017

Some people can set a goal and just get up and get moving. Others struggle. Something is holding them back. Let’s see what we can do about this.


For Weight Loss you need to decide what foods to eat. The internet, reading food labels and perhaps getting food from one of the weight loss programs will help. A salesperson who wants to earn more commissions may need to learn how to make sales calls. A college student may have to learn how to read faster and absorb more material. A person at work may have to find a way to deal with a mean boss. Look at your practical steps needed and find ways to deal with them.


Past failures can be a big one. Look for them. They can be related to your goal or just failures in other areas. They build up and can be a heavy burden. Try this Tool.
• Go into peace self hypnosis
• Say: My shoulders, arms and hands are at peace
• My chest and stomach are at peace
• My back is at peace. I am at peace
• Reflect on your past regarding a past goal
• Pick one incident and ask: What happened?
• What did I learn?
• See it becoming part of your past
• Imagine reaching your goal
Say: Wake up to a wonderful day


In many cases stress is a big one. When trying to lose weight stress comes up and you deal with it by eating. The Stress Workbook will go into this in much more depth. For a lot of people an area of their body becomes tense under stress, for me it’s my facial muscles so concentrate on this area. Try this to relax the area.

Use ‘relax relax’ self hypnosis
Focus on the tense area
Say ‘relax relax’ a few times
Imagine a a wave of relaxation flowing thru this area
This can take some time to learn
Takes only a few seconds
Anytime Anywhere


This is a good way to get answers and we will use it in a later post. Use the question: “What’s holding me back” or a similar one.


Just ask yourself: “What’s holding me back”? or “What’s going on?” or… whatever you question you come up with. You can do this anytime anyplace


Make a list of the some of the practical steps you need to achieve your goal. Cross them out when completed. Search for past failures that can affect you now. Use the Tool above for it. When having stress use the ‘relax relax’ self hypnosis Tool. When you have 30 seconds just ask yourself “What’s holding me back? Continue listening to the audio tracks and reading your Goalsheet in the morning.
