Throw out your New Year’s resolutions

New Years resolutions are a total waste of time for most people. Why? Because they are not backed by the right mental preparation and conditioning.

How many years have you been making resolutions only to find that within two or three weeks you’ve given up?

Relying upon will power, resolve and persistence is absolutely the worst way to achieve your new goals. These things are controlled by your conscious mind, which is responsible for only about 2-4 percent of your day-to-day actions and perceptions.

Due to your habits, you’ve become conditioned to stay at the same weight, income or in the same mediocre relationship. An internal financial or weight “set point” is conditioned deep in your subconscious brain so that you don’t have to think about the day-to-day activities you need to do to maintain it.

If you think about lottery winners, why is it that within two or three years, 86 percent lose all their money? It’s because they are conditioned to be without money. Their do not change their subconscious set point of how much money they should have, therefore they revert to that point.

Once any image, habit or belief is ingrained in your subconscious brain, you automatically seek out situations and behave in ways that resonate with that “internal image.” If you currently don’t like the results you are witnessing with your weight, job, income or relationships, then you must break the old patterns and old conditioning that’s causing them.

Breaking subconscious patterns has been proven by NASA to take at least 30-60 days of brain retraining.

If you do not “re-train” your subconscious brain at the same time you make the decision to lose weight or make more money, for example, you will within very short order return back to your old weight and income patterns and in most cases gain even more weight back– and that’s why, despite the best intentions, the vast majority of New Year’s resolutions are not kept..

There is a “cybernetic trigger” in your brain. It detects any change from your current situation, no matter what is, and it overrides your will power and forces you to behave in accordance with your old habits. Hence, the same results repeat themselves because of the same thought patterns and behavioral patterns. It works exactly like the thermostat in your home that automatically picks up any change in room temperature and then makes corrections to return things to “normal.”

This automatic “trigger” causes you to rationalize why you’re not sticking with your diet or new income plan and basically forces you to revert back to your habits and patterns.

Break the word “rationalize” in two and you get “rational-lies.” The internal self-talk you catch yourself doing is automatic and a result of the system doing its job to keep you at your “comfort zone,” even though it’s not what you want.

Your income or body is only an expression of the internal image you have at a deep-rooted level. If you want to see permanent changes on the outside, you must retrain the mental image on the inside first.

If you truly want to make permanent changes in your life, it takes about 15 minutes a day of mental retraining for 30-60 days. The more you do this, the faster you’ll see results. The good news is that you can’t get a brain hernia if you overdo it.

If you are serious about living the life you want and deserve, why not join the thousands that have already discovered the most advanced system for permanent financial and life success?

If you are interested in your success, you’ll do what’s convenient. If on the other hand you are committed to your success, you’ll do what it takes.

  1. I love how you break “rational-lies” down! For those of us who have worn being rational like a ‘badge of logic’, it’s a great reminder that it’s also a way we can make excuses for ourselves.

    I highly recommend all of John’s work to anyone who may be on the fence about buying a product or joining a program. It’s changed my life! 🙂

  3. Hey John,

    I personally think that the more time you put into it, the better. I spend more than 15 minutes visualizing, affirming, figuring out my goals.

    I say my affirmations all the time. I constantly look at my vision board.

    I wanted to get your opinion on if this would be better or worse than the 15 min/day.

  10. We could begin an entire debate about the reality of the subsconcious mind or ‘unconscious’ as it is known to some and never settle on the ‘true’ reality of this phenomenon. Personally, I believe that both conscious intention and relaxed access to the deeper mind that automates and runs all things to do with our bodies is a wiser approach than an either/or approach because if something is unconscious or subsconcious, it is not known to us and we can only guess from the manifestations in the external world and our behaviours that something is causing it at a level of non-awareness. Given that awareness is the key to change, we first need to become aware (conscious) that something needs to change and then consciously decide to repeat new behaviours and thought patterns on a regular and systematic basis until we have entrained the new behaviours and thought patterns. Some say this takes 28 days and I guess that 60 will more or less guarantee the new patterns. Change though, happens in an instant – the moment we decide to change, it begins – the continuity of that change is very dependant on a conscious daily decision to re-enforce that change and a complete commitment to our decision to change. For that we need sufficient reasons to continue. So as much as I love your work John, in this case I agree to a certain extent and beg to differ (based on vast experience over many years of working with people) about relying only on a subsconcious retraining as the method of change. The subsconscious is likened to a little puppy trying to please the conscious (captain of the ship)so we still need the conscious mind’s help. Respect Kathy

  12. Thanks for the great reminder that results are all about the thoughts we choose!

  13. Hey John,
    You have no idea how you changed my life.
    I’ve been in a seminar of your 2 weeks ago in Israel, and since then I carry around 3 notebooks: 1 for my beautiful girlfriend and our amazing relationship, 1 for my awsome 16 friends and 1 for my ability to consistenly do visualization, positive affirmitation and meditation for 2 hours every day.
    I’m been reading each of my notebooks 3 times every day for the last 2 weeks and I’m already starting to feel the diffrent. I’m waiting patiencly for 30-60 days until the magic will begin…

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much, John. You have no idea, NO IDEA how much you helped me with my life.

    Thanks you.
    With appriciation and love,
    Eyal

    I agree with the importance of visualization but there is that subtle dynamic of letting go that makes it come around. So what we have to do is visualize and create triggers that affirm yet we have to be in a state of detachment. This is from my experience essential. I am an artist and have had to rely on the power of manifestation for years. I have to thank you John for expanding the possibilities even more.

  20. Thanks John for addressing the all important issue of mindset in changing ones’ life. I think that a major issue for many people is that they are very clear and emotional about what they DON”T want, but they are fuzzy and unclear about what they really DO want. Obviously, the conscious mind has to choose but a major missing ingredient is the lack of excitement or emotion to wrap around the new goal. As long as one is unclear and ‘feel’ that the new goal is improbable and ‘feel’ unhappy about their present circumstances,
    it will be difficult to re-wire the subconscious which responds to emotion and not intellect. Feelings are a HUGH key!
