I have seven tips for achieving your weight loss goals. Here is Tip #5

5 – Be the Person You Want to Be

The Role Model is another anchoring technique that allows you to obtain traits that you admire in others, or traits that you imagine you will have when you accomplish the goals of your weight loss program.

Eliciting a Role Model

  • Sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Imagine a version of you who has already acquired your stated goals. Allow your imagination to create a very vivid representation of the this new, improved you.
  • When you are ready, take a breath, count 3, 2, 1, and imagine stepping into that new you. Notice the energy, attitudes, and perspectives you experience.
  • Then step back into your beginning perspective. Notice how that feels and what is different or the same. Step back in, again noticing any changes. Continue to step in and out until you can easily maintain the desired traits and claim them as your own.

Remember that our true nature is healthy and self-empowered. Once you have experienced the sensations of being in the new you, you can realize that the desired state is readily at hand. You do not have to fake it to be that new person. Rather, you simply have to align with the brightness of your true shining Self.
