Don't Overcomplicate Accountability

How does one become accountable? It is not a complicated process. It's actually very easy and starts with something you already have—your thoughts. Your thoughts have the incredible power to produce the outcome you want … or don't want. When you use your thoughts to create a mindset that continually reminds you that you are in control and have the power to influence your success, your subconscious mind will automatically begin to work to make that happen.

The dictionary defines accountability as an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions or results. This official definition sounds more complicated than it actually is, though. Accountability is simply accepting that there is only one person responsible for your success—you. When you understand that and become accountable, you will find that success follows. 

Negative thoughts steer us away from success and help us make excuses for them. Positive thoughts, however, serve as a continual reminder of what we can do, not what we cannot do. As a result, we give ourselves the power and permission to produce the outcomes we want. When we make that a conscious choice and reaffirm our accountability to ourselves on a daily basis, it will eventually become an automatic habit that we follow without even thinking about it. 

The next time things aren't going right, be accountable. Look to yourself first, before any other people or circumstances. Ask yourself how you may have contributed to the outcome you didn't want. Did you have secret doubts that you could achieve what you wanted? Whether you had a lack of confidence or a lack of motivation, the negative thoughts associated with that directly affected your results. That is because the subconscious mind does not discriminate between positive or negative thoughts. It will go to work to align your results with your thoughts, regardless of what they are. 

So hold yourself accountable for your own success. Reinforce the results you want by feeding your subconscious mind with positive thoughts that will support your success. It sounds too easy, but it is incredibly effective. Don't overcomplicate accountability; it's simply a matter of giving yourself permission to take control of your success and empowering yourself with the positive thoughts that can make it happen.

Does hypnosis really help people lose weight?

People want to lose weight for many reasons, and they try many different ways to do it. They deprive themselves of certain foods, while limiting others. They create a cycle where they're unhappy with their body or health, so they diet. Then they become discouraged and return to their old eating habits. Dieting is a continual reminder of the things we cannot have, rather than the things we can. Top that off with the fact that many people don't get enough physical exercise and use food as comfort for their emotions, not their body, and you can see why diets aren't always the answer.

Does your mind control your weight? Do your thoughts sabotage your efforts to be fit and healthy? So many people don't realize that it's the mental part of weight loss and health consciousness—not the physical part—that determines their success. Yes, hypnosis can help you lose weight and create the mindset you desire! It will give you incredible willpower to stay on track. It will retrain you to approach weight loss from a better perspective—one where you are not on a diet, but rather on a quest for a healthier lifestyle. I have spent my career developing programs that will allow you to create the thinking patterns needed to enhance your desire and passion for a healthier lifestyle. Wouldn't it be great if your mind, not a diet, guides you where you want to go? Sure it would! It can, because your mind can be your best friend—not your worst enemy.

Five Things You Should Never Say to Yourself in Business and Life!

Negative talk and self-thoughts destroy accomplishment. But even successful people can win to fail based on what they say to themselves. We must retrain our mind to believe we can achieve the things we want and build a relationship of trust with ourself that’s unshakable.
If you really want to achieve something, you must believe that you can. You must be willing to be your own coach, your strongest supporter and biggest cheerleader. You must build a relationship based on trust—with yourself.
Words are magic to a receptive listener. What you say – and think – always matters. Every single word that crosses your mind, every word you say, and every word you write helps to frame your personal reality, and, to some extent, the reality about yourself that you present to others around you. If the words are negative, you find yourself living in a narrow, limited – and probably unhappy – negative reality. Negative words and thoughts stifle our opportunities and achievements. Feeding ourselves with negativity only reinforces and cements the likelihood that we’ll remain stuck right where we are. Changing our thoughts and words to positive ones, however, pulls us out from our current reality and magnetically propels us toward positive outcomes. If the words you feed yourself are positive, your world expands to virtually limitless horizons and becomes optimistic and hopeful.
There are five things you should avoid saying to yourself in business and in life. They are: no, can’t, not possible, never, and don’t think so. Think about what you hear when you say these words to yourself. Now think about how others hear those words when you say them.
The biggest obstacles in front of most of us are the ones we can’t see. These are words. We can see a mountain and figure out how to go around it or climb up it, but we can’t see the obstacles we create by the words we say. Increasing your awareness of what you say to yourself and others can have a profound effect on your reality and others!!!
