We are now well into 2013 and our New Year resolutions are either well on the way to fruition, or completely forgotten. In a recent Blog I talked about losing weight, addictions and finding the motivation to take this to the conclusion you want.

So taking that idea a little further, remember that we all have inner power. This is nothing to do with your ego or power at work or in your family, but the inner knowing that you are OK, safe and protected.

Many of us forget we have this power and look outside for support and help; this has fuelled the rise of weight loss clubs,‘slimming’ foods, gastric bands and addiction clinics.

At what point did you give up personal responsibility for what you eat, how you think and what you do in your life?

It’s only by remembering that it is you who have control over you, that weight loss, addictions and bad habits can be changed.

You can use the tapping technique, EFT(Emotional Freedom Techniques) to reinforce your resolve, to take away the negative aspects of your issue and it works exceptionally well, but it has to you and your motivation that makes things happen.

You have to DO something to have the results that you want. Start by practising saying no when offered a cake, cigarette or drink. Just say no once, this puts you in control. Feel that inner power, the increase in personal motivation and know you can do this again and at any time.

Loss of control in your life may need to illness, depression and anxiety disorders. Being in control will reduce your stress, enhance your life and get you back on the path to a happy and fulfilling life.

Exercise your rights to control your own life, if you need support contact me and we can talk it through.
