Getting Rid of Negative Habits Using the Subconscious
How could a diet possible help change a habit pattern that has been causing grief
for years? It is because the Subconscious Diet: It’s not what you put in your mouth;
it is what you put in your mind! looks at all the factors that cause weight gain
or the failure to achieve any other goal.
A diet is nothing more that a goal. Most excess weight is caused by bad habits,
habits of Anger, Fear, Hate, and Stress. All emotions are habits, all habits are
thoughts and all thoughts can be changed, if a person wants to change them.
What is needed is a process, a step by step method that can correct negative thinking,
replace un-helpful emotions and improve a person’s outlook on life in general. This
is not hypnosis. Hypnosis implies external control but what is vital to the change
of any habit is a system of internal control. To change a habitudinal way of doing
things, it must not only be a personal decision but the method must be understood
by the person who wants to change.
”The Subconscious Diet” shows a person how to develop a new operating system. The
subconscious is very much like a computer in that it holds all of a person’s values,
habits, and memories. It is constantly working to come up with answers to each situation
that life presents every day. Just like a computer we can choose to change how the
mind goes about finding the solutions. The steps are relatively simple:
Clearly stating our goals (weight loss or change is a goal).
Writing out and repeating those goals daily (affirmations).
Getting rid of fear, anger, hate, and guilt (letting go!).
Learning to associate only with positive friends (get away from negativity).
Vividly seeing the desired end result in our own mind (visualization).
The reason that many people have difficultly making changes or keeping resolutions
is that they are just too tired. These emotions of anger, fear and the others are
energy thieves. Change is energy intensive, if your supply of mental energy is being
drained by these habits, any change is going to be very difficult. One of the biggest
complaints of modern society is about the pervasive tiredness that affects many
The most important thing you must accept is that you are a being of power! You do
have the ability to make decisions and to carry them out. It makes no difference
how many times you may have seemed to fail in the past. The past really has no bearing
on what will happen today except for the power you give it. YOU can choose to use
your power to enable the past to affect today or you can refuse to grant the past
any power or reality.
It has always been your choice.
Make a choice to succeed, make a plan, then as the ad says: Just Do It! It doesn’t
take years of analysis – it doesn’t even really matter why you have developed negative
habits. We all like to play the WHY game but it is not important, except to the
extent that you allow yourself to think it is. You have the power to stop thinking
about any subject and move on to positive thoughts and actions.
Since the mind can hold only one though at a time, write out affirmations to move
you in the direction you want to go and repeat them when you feel the urge to indulge
yourself in a negative habit. An affirmation is a statement of a condition you want
to have, stated in the present tense, as if you already possessed that trait. Affirmations
are used to condition your subconscious mind to receive every good thing the universe
has to offer. Contrary to any experience you may have suffered through in the past,
the universe is ready to provide you with any beneficial condition you are will
to work for.
Once you know what you want, do what every athlete, salesperson and any successful
person has always done. Visualize your dream. See yourself very clearly in your
mind living with the positive habits that may have eluded you to this point. No,
it is not easy to start a new way of thinking and acting, you will have relapses
and negative thoughts will slip in to your mind. But it is just like the old saying
goes: Practice makes perfect.
If you are consistent with your new plans and new thoughts, they will develop into
new habits, the habits that you want and that will make your life and the lives
of everyone who loves you or could love you come as close as possible to perfection.
You do have the power and you can use it.
