You know it is said that there is a correlation between the energy and effort we put into something and what we get out of it. I am sure that many people can relate to this rule if life.
Although some people seem to find some things easy, and are often called a 'natural' at some skill, most people have to make some effort in order to achieve the results they want.
If you want to achieve a better body, whether that is a slimmer body or a more defined body you might decide to go to a gym to achieve this. You know and accept that you will only achieve your goal if you make the effort. Some people have to put in more effort than others but everyone has to take action to achieve in order to get that slimmer or more defined body.
Now some people will make the effort of attending the gym but unfortunately will then not give the necessary attention and focus to what they are doing when they are there. They may lift a few weights, they may go on the stationary bicycle but then cut down on the number of repetitions they know they should do. They may perform the exercises half-heartedly. They eventually realise that what they are doing is not having any affect on their body and they decide to stop altogether.
So here is an example of how minimal effort will lead to minimal results and disappointment.
The same can be true of using any self hypnosis cd. Although you can relax when listening to your hypnosis cd, there will be suggestions for you to think about the issues you want to resolve. You might call these suggestions 'mental exercises'. Once again the rule of what you put in as far as effort is concerned can equal what you get out of it.
Although you can achieve and release various blocks to your success by just allowing the suggestions to flow over you, it can be a good idea to do more. So listen to your chosen hypnosis cd and for the first few playings of it, let the words wash over you. On subsequent playings of your hypnosis cd decide to participate more.
In other words listen to the suggestions and particularly where you are encouraged to think about past events and how you would like to be in the future and actively do the exercises.
Now with any effective hypnosis cd there will be a number of suggested mental exercises. You don't have to do all of them during one sitting. You can choose to make the effort for different exercises every time you listen to the hypnosis cd. This way you will get the most out of hypnosis.
Remember always that the effort you put in is really going to be proportional to what you get out of anything... including your hypnosis cd.
