August 22, 2011 Ok it’s back from the holidays, or well deserved time-off, and time to get re-focused.
(This routine can be used ANY time motivation takes an unpleasant dip!)
I suggest you do this twice a day, until you feel strong enough on your own. then use as and when.
And if you find it really hard to believe that this can work for you, try a session or two with a practitioner. I self-treat but work so much more effectively on any bigger issues, with my swap partner. She makes me go into ‘things’ I may try to avoid!
You know the tapping points You know to alter any of the words that don’t resonate, ring true to you. I am quite direct with myself, more gentle with my clients but can suggest that they may not be allowing the ‘true picture’ to surface. So here goes and remember to think about where in your body you feel the lack of motivation, and give it a rating, a number between 0(low distress) and 10(high distress)
So let’s get started, but you can print this routine EFT Resources Motivation
Karate point and say 3 times (alter slightly if you like as you repeat)
Even tho I can’t be bothered really focusing on work straight away after my holiday, I know that I will just get irritated with myself and feel frustrated when I waste time, AND I love and accept myself deeply and completely.
