It's interesting how many people have said to me something like "I just didn't have the willpower for it" when talking about past diets or maintaining weight loss or smoking cessation. So wrong. So very wrong. Think about it - who are you going against when you are struggling with temptation, whether it's food or cigarettes or any other coping behavior? Who is the opponent? Not some stranger holding a Snickers bar out to you, not somebody you don't know offering you a Marlboro, that person, your opponent, is YOU. So when you are measuring your willpower you are not viewing it accurately. Your willpower is SUPER strong. That's why it's so hard to change. Your WILLPOWER is fighting your new idea tooth and nail with everything its got. It is fighting you for the survival of a pattern, a behavior you have lived with and become comfortable with. So YES, your willpower is stronger than you imagined and it will win the fight. Your willpower fights for the established pattern because that is what it knows. That is where it is comfortable. Hypnosis sneaks in the back door, rewires the pattern to change your behavior and can GREATLY IMPROVE your life. Now, your willpower, what is it fighting for? It is fighting to maintain the pattern, only the pattern has been changed. The pattern is positive and nurturing and lifegiving and there is no struggle.
Yes, you have the willpower you need.
