This week I hypnotized 5 clients for the 5 bite diet who saw the tremendous successes of their one friend. Let me just say anyone who refers a client to me gets a free session of hypnotherapy for the good word! Thank you very much.
These two clients have tried it all and were told to “Try” weight watchers, “Try” atkins, “Try” carb counting. And “Try” as they might they got nowhere.
The word try is known in hypnosis and NLP as a failure word… a word the programs a person to expect to fail. For instance, say I enter the room of a client and say, “I tried to get here on time.” Essentially the word means I tried, but I failed.
Well if you say the same thing about dieting, you are programming yourself to fail. “I tried to lose weight with this or that diet.” Means you failed. Well if you say “I’m trying this diet.” You are saying, “I am likely to fail this diet.” Why talk to yourself in such a way that will program failure?
Yoda said it best in, “The Empire Strikes Back.”
Luke: All right, I’ll give it a try.
Yoda: No. Try not. Do… or do not. There is no try.
There is no try with the 5 bite diet and my hypnosis. Only do.
