I was talking with a friend of mine who just started learning hypnotherapy. I told him my mother actually stopped smoking with hypnotherapy, and what they did is told her instead of having a cigarette, she would feel like having a glass of water. The next day she did not smoke, and not ever again. Amazing. He was not surprised. He said that is basic practice: you switch a habit for another. What he explained then, was that the thoughts and habits we have, are like paths in our brain. We get used to think something, or do something, and it becomes … Continue reading Don’t believe everything you think
It’s easy to get stuck in a circle, when you don’t feel like doing anything and the less you do, the less you feel like doing. Try to start one thing today. Maybe you are thinking about writing a book, learning something new, or maybe it’s something you have to do but that you don’t look forward to, like a homework, cleaning the studio, anything. Just start. One little step. Don’t aim for a full chapter by the end of the day. Just say you’ll write a line or two, lay out some ideas. Little steps. Promise yourself you will … Continue reading Give energy if you want to get energized
Recently I quit my job. I was working as a designer in the advertising industry. I always had a huge creative side to me but I never thought I would end up in that field. It all went down so naturally. Not easily, but naturally. What I want to talk about today, is how sometimes, we end up not doing what we truly want to do. In fact, a lot of the time, doing what we truly want to do is harder, than doing something else. But why? – It seems like motivation does not come from passion only. Passion is not enough. Why … Continue reading Finding your way // What do you want to be when you grow up?
INFPs are one of the types who have the hardest time making decisions. We always see the good and the bad in every situation, and we always think of the “what if”s. It makes it really hard for us to make up our minds. And it’s scary, when you are not sure, and you have to make a choice. Two weeks ago I made the hardest decision of my life: I left my job to start working as a freelancer. I chose to leave something that was good, for an unknown situation, that could be better or worse. The most important … Continue reading INFP tip #70
INFPs primary mode is introverted feeling. That means: We are in our heads a lot. We have a tendency to overthink. To us every single thought generates 2 more. And we can get almost paralyzed by our thoughts. Creating invisible barriers and being unable to take action. We have to be careful about this, and push ourselves to take action. To live in the moment. Don’t wait to have all the answers before you make a move. Don’t create un-necessary barriers in your mind. The best way to know if you should do something is sometimes to simply do it, and see … Continue reading INFP tip #69
Focus less on what you think others think, and more on your own beliefs. Take time to define your personal values, what you believe in, who you are. You don’t know what others think. You don’t know until you ask them and even then in some cases you still don’t. That’s why you have to focus on you and not others. This is how you will get stability in your life. A sense of confidence, calm and focus. Continue reading INFP tip #68
Feelers and intuitives types can have a tendency to go in the extremes emotionally. Good news will make us feel like we are on top of the world, and we could start thousands of new projects, and do anything. Bad news will throw us down, make us start doubting every single thing about ourselves, make us feel like giving up everything, feeling lost and confused. It can start from a bad conversation with a friend, or a simple disagreement with sa colleague at work, and there we are, starting to question all of our life choices! We have very fertile … Continue reading INFP tip #67 :Managing emotions
