Lack of Direction

Lack of direction is closely related to lack of motivation. This is because we need a clear sense of direction concerning our desires and our goals before we can become motivated to accomplish them. A lack of direction only leads to uncertainty, confusion, and not surprisingly, a feeling of being immobilised or ‘stuck’.


If you’re unsure as to what it is that you want, it‘s not at all unusual to feel a complete absence of the motivation to make change in your life. Or it’s possible that you know exactly what it is that you want, but you feel overwhelmed by the challenge of taking the required steps toward achieving your goal. Or your fear of failure leads to a complete lack of action. And so it seems easier to just keep things as they are, even though you know that won’t make you happy either.


Discovering what it is that we want, both in our careers and in our personal lives, gives us a sense of purpose and therefore enhances the quality of our life experience.  Recent research suggests that having purpose in life results in better health and even adds years to our lives.


Hypnotherapy helps with lack of direction by:


  • enabling you to identify and clarify your interests and goals

  • freeing you from the influence of external voices

  • freeing you from the influence of your own biases

  • enabling you to replace your negative inner dialogue with positive inner dialogue

  • enhancing your focus in order to enable the motivation for goal-setting
