Anytime we can be bombarded with excuses, stress, cravings, doubts, tiredness, to not complete a practical step. Sometimes we win and complete the step and sometimes we don’t. There is hope. We can stop them and the Self Hypnosis Tools help. You will get motivated, stop the excuses, and complete the step. 

Today we look at how we can stop the trigger when they come up. It can take time. It’s taken us years to build these bad habits up and it may take some time to stop them. Over a period of time they will get weaker and weaker until they are just thoughts occasionally popping into our head which we can easily brush aside. In the future they may surface again so watch out for them.

What’s important here is that we have an Action Plan. We can make up our own, use the one below, come up with a way to overcome cravings, excuses, tiredness whatever comes up.

  1. Make a Plan – For example when a basketball game is going to come on during your study time keep the tv off and….
  2. Watch Out – Many times we just don’t realize it when an excuse comes up we just automatically skip the necessary practical step. 
  3. First say: STOP! STOP!
  4. Ask 1.What’s going on? I want to watch the basketball game or I am not going to do well on my Math exam.
          2. What can I do?  Listen to audio track. Or Say 1. below. Find what works for you.

Do the above when an excuses, stress, cravings, doubts, whatever to stop you from completing your practical step.  We want to find your triggers and then let go of them and complete you step by following the above outline. Below are a number of ‘What can I do’ actions. Maybe make up a few of your own. Once you find a few actions you can turn it into a habit. Then you can stop asking the above questions if you want and just go right to it.
