Knowing how to make change stick for a change is such a Relief!
It’s such a relief because the first thing you get to know is; it’s NOT your fault. It’s the way your brain is wired. That’s right!
You know how hard you try and try and try only to revert back to the old habits, the old patterns, and the old blah blah blah blah blah.
There’s a whole lot of science going on inside of you while you are trying and trying to make those changes. I love science because it is what I call “the evidence.” I often tell my clients, “Look for the evidence.”
I teach my clients to become their very own science experiment just for Fun. It is Fun when we see the evidence of change in our lives; mentally, emotionally, physically.
Peak Performance is about the psychology and the biology of change. (I’m getting to the part where it’s not your fault it’s the way your brain is wired.)
Why not Be a Peak Performer as you endeavor to make change?
But this time, to Make Change Stick for a Change!
First things first, your brain is wired to keep you in your “comfort zone” no matter how uncomfortable that really may be. That’s right! Another way of saying it is, your brain is wired to keep doing what it is familiar with doing; an example is excessively eating.
When we are trying to make changes it may freak us out because it is out of our comfort zone and it is unfamiliar because it isn’t our regular way of doing things.
Your brain then throws off Red Alerts for you to run back into that which is comfortable and familiar.
This is when the real Fun starts with your personal science experiment. Now begin to get clear and real on what it is you really want.
Maybe you want to lose 25 pounds in 52 days because you’re going to be in a wedding in 55 days and you were mortified by the way you looked in the bachelorette party pictures and there’s no way you can bear to see yourself look that way in the wedding pictures so you come to see me for 1 session.
1 session?! I’m not kidding, this is a true client case study. By the way, I do suggest 3 sessions for a good strong foundation on making change stick For A Change. Seriously consider it took longer than 90 minutes to get into the habits and patterns that created the problem. It’s going to take longer than 90 minutes to create the new habits and patterns to Make Change Stick For A Change.
We tapped with Emotional Freedom Techniques to help to rewire her brain due to the Red Alerts that her brain was creating at the mere discussion of “change.” Remember it’s not your fault, it’s the way your brain is wired?
Then we did NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to enable her to bring all five of her senses into the reality of how she wants to experience seeing herself in the wedding pictures after losing excess weight.
Then eyes closed hypnosis; her subconscious taking her to that special place where it enables her to experience herself in the new habits, the new patterns, where she is simply choosing the foods that her body will burn. That place where she experiences herself enjoying smaller portion sizes on her plate. That place where she experiences herself getting home from work, changing into her exercise clothes and getting physical to burn off some excess calories.
And she experiences this in hypnosis because she wants to like the way she looks in the wedding pictures.
She told me she would start tomorrow because she was meeting her mother for dinner when she left my office. NO problem can be resolved from the same level of consciousness that created it. That’s a quote by Albert Einstein. I told you I Love science!
