The Following Rules Will Help You Set Good Short-Term Goals
Massive rewards after large amounts of work are less successful. If you try this, you will find studying goes much faster and is more enjoyable. This basic idea can be applied to any task. It is a simple technique that is very effective. This does not mean that you cannot reward yourself for a more major accomplishment. If you complete a course or a semester, treat yourself to an expensive dinner, a short vacation trip, or a gift of some kind. This approach makes getting there half the fun. People who arrange their lives this way enjoy themselves and what they are doing.
Once the long-term and short-term goals have been established, program them into the subconscious using your rules for formulating autosuggestions. After this has been accomplished, do not concentrate on your goals (see Rule VI of Rules of the Mind). If we fix our attention on our goals too firmly, we will find ourselves too future oriented to enjoy the present -- always going somewhere, but never arriving. Looking forward too much to future goals leads us to be unhappy with the present and to make excessive sacrifices to reach our goals. The person that is always concentrating on his future goals is preparing to enjoy the future, and the future never comes. Goals are for direction and planning. After they have been formulated, we need to put them in the back of our mind and begin to concentrate on the present. Remember, a subconscious that is properly programmed can carry out your goals much better than you could ever hope to carry them out consciously.
|The instructions presented are from the personal collections and writing library of Mr. Robert E. Cutter, who died December 13, 2001, while in the process of completing the transfer of his work to the internet. These are offered as educational instruction only. The purpose of this instruction is the effective learning and use of hypnotic techniques for vocational or avocational self-improvement. This instruction is not offered as a substitute for, nor as a supplement to, any form of therapy concerned with physical, mental, nervous or emotional illness. Robert E. Cutter served as web consultant for American Psychotherapy and Medical Hypnosis Association for three years. His hypnosis education came through the training he provided at a school he owned in the 1950's in Los Angeles, California, along with his wife who preceded him in death in 1980. Robert Cutter was not a psychologist and did not practice psychotherapy, but his interest in hypnosis motivated him to provide free resources materials for others who wanted to learn to use the power of their minds to improve well being and health-related issues.|
