When you set out to write a self hypnosis script, you probably already have a goal in mind, but exactly how you define your goal has more impact on your success than many people realize. The more carefully you define your goal, the more effective you can be in preparing your subconscious mind to focus on what you really want and boost your chances of creating the result you want.

Here are four power questions to ask yourself when defining your goal for a self hypnosis script. Use these questions to clarify your goal and focus your subconscious mind on achieving exactly what you want.

What do you want? Write down what you want to accomplish.

What will having this do for you? Ask this question to make sure that you have identified what is most important to you. For example, if your goal is to increase your income by 50%, ask yourself what would having that do for you. If your answer is that it would give you more time with your family, you may want to focus on your real goal of having time with your family rather than making more money. Focusing on making more money could easily take you away from having more time with your family. So if you set the wrong goal you could end up sabotaging your real success. For this reason, it’s important that you define your goal as your real desired end result rather than some intermediate means to an end.

How will you know when you have it? Write down the specific things that will be your evidence for success. These may be tangible things like “I will lose 5 pounds by January 31″ or intangible things like “I will wake up feeling good about myself.” The more specific you are here, the more precisely your subconscious mind will know what you want to achieve. If you cannot answer this question easily, stick with it until you have a clear answer that will give exact guidance to your subconscious mind. The more clearly you define your evidence of success in sensory terms – things you can see, hear, feel, smell and taste – the more useful the guidance will be to your subconscious mind through your self hypnosis script. Your subconscious mind really cannot relate to something abstract like having an income of $5,000 per day, but it can relate to something sensory like waking up feeling good about your accomplishments every morning.

Where, when and with whom do you want it? Define the specific contexts where you want to accomplish this goal. For example, if you want to be more self confident, with whom do you want to feel confident, in what situations, while you’re doing what activities? When you answer this question, you should be able to vividly imagine yourself in the exact situations and with the specific people you want to accomplish this goal. The more vividly you can image the end result, the more your subconscious mind will have to work with to create what you want.

Once you have identified your goal using the questions above, make sure that it is written in positive rather than negative terms. For example, a negative goal statement would be “Stop feeling bad about myself” while a positive goal statement would be “Start feeling good about myself.” Research has shown that people who focus on positive goals are significantly more successful than people who focus on negative goals.

This is especially true when setting goals that will be given to your subconscious mind during your self hypnosis session.

Now that you have defined and clarified the goal for your self hypnosis script, you’re ready for the other steps of designing and writing your most powerful self hypnosis script possible, which is covered in another article in this series on how to write your own powerful self hypnosis script.
