This sparked a deep interest and curiosity in me. Interestingly the curiosity was not in the power of hypnosis, but in the power of choice. If I would have lit that cigarette I would probably still be smoking today. When I made the conscious choice to not smoke, something very powerful happened. Knowing that the word choice is an action word, and knowing what a powerful message action sends to my subconscious mind, it makes sense that choosing to take action of any kind engages my subconscious mind. Any time I engage my subconscious mind the odds of my success go up dramatically.
Another interesting thing to realize is that by not taking action, or choosing to not act, is seen by the subconscious mind as taking action. Choosing to not act reinforces the old belief. This makes not taking action easier next time. By the same token, choosing to take action and then taking action, no matter how hard it seems the first time gets easier and easier each time. This can be very helpful to remember when kicking a habit. Each temptation requires a choice. Each time you make the same choice, it gets easier to make that same choice.
So how powerful is choice? Make a conscious choice to take action on your goal and enjoy the ride!
