Think about what you want to write and plan out the amount of space you'll need. Only start out with a few words at first, building up to 7 to 9 and
then push yourself to 11 or more to see just how many you can concentrate on at one time. Start at the spot on the righthand side of the page where
the lettering would end were you to have written it left to right and begin writing your sentences backwards from right to left, one letter at a time.
Be diligent and thorough in your manuscripts, respecting aesthetics as a virtue, making your lettering as attractive as possible.
If you want to avoid something like smoking, you can play a prerecorded tape in the background. Many people like to use positive affirmations either
in the first or second person, but these do not work for me. This is how I would craft something if I wanted it to imprint itself upon my mind.
"Thomas fervently pushes one leg in front of the other as he powers on down the street. His boss has crossed the line this time, things cannot remain
as they are. His fingers fumbling at every second, he reaches into his pocket feeling for the crumpled pack of cigarettes he has been secretly keeping
in there. It is like drawing up an ancient memory from the deepest parts of his personal library as he pulls the pack out of the hidden pocket he had
sewn into the lining of his jacket. Old and stale the cigarettes must be, but he lusts for them anyway as he pulls the lighter out from within the
poorly torn open hole of the soft pack. The pack is bright red and larger than life, the cellophane slips between his fingers crackling softly as he
extracts an old, slightly bent cigarette from within its passenger. The smell of dried tobacco hits his nose and a powerful longing shoots down the
core of his being as he puts the filter to his lips. Spark after spark is exhausted, trying to get his flame to burst forth into reality, but the wind
is too strong. Frustrated he realizes that his lighter must be out of fuel. Tossing it aside, he reaches into his pocket to pull out a box of matches.
Horror strikes him as he slides open the drawer, realizing he has only one match left. Looking around, he spots a tree and edges against it, shielding
himself with his jacket from the unrelenting wind as he seeks to insulate the tiny flame from the dangers that surround it. Quickly he drags the match
along the striker on the side of the box as he protects the tiny flame with a flat curved hand and draws it up to his lips to receive the first
inhalation. It is like bringing water to the lips after a long drought and the smell of the burning tobacco, slightly sweet against his nose relay to
him the coming of his relief. As he drags on the cigarette and draws the smoke into his lungs, a powerful choking sensation burns its way into his
chest. Reeling against the sensation he coughs repeatedly, tossing the cigarette to the ground. 'I can never smoke again,' he mutters, 'Never smoke
Anyway, that works on me. Start the story out singsong and go down to monotonous by the end. Leave a long pause at the end of the recording so if you
loop it, it doesn't become too irritating to the mind. Play it really quietly in the background, maybe even playing music a bit louder nearer to you
so it isn't the dominant noise in the room. Focus on your work, enjoy the music, but make sure the narrative is loud enough to where you could make
out the words if you wanted to. The key is to get some part of you to relate and empathize with that character, to allow itself to become him for a
minute. The pain of the character will drive that semi-conscious part of you away and the monotony and lack of interesting descriptors at the end will
not give it any incitements to draw it back leaving only the unconscious parts of you to be listening for the commands, "never smoke again." This is
pretty straightforward and simplistic, maybe just one step up from a positive affirmation in the grand realm of autohypnotism.
There are much more sophisticate approaches you can get into. As a primer, I would suggest the books, "The structure of magic." I'm personally not
into the cult of NLP, but he does a good job bringing together many of the elements that I have found useful to me when building up my personal
armory. Transactional analysis honestly was universes more useful to me than NLP was especially when you start to see yourself as a large cruise ship
full of people. You are the captain, but sometimes you must sleep and someone else takes the wheel. Find out who these people are. Search every room.
Unlock every closet. Find them all. Drag them all out into the light until you understand what each of them is about. Look at every subconscious and
semi-conscious force within you as its own person with its own archetype and its own motivations and programs. Find ways to trigger them and to get
them to perform their sequence of emotions. You'll be amazed at what you can figure out about yourself through experimentation. Pain, annoyance,
boredom, sleepiness, amnesia, confusion, distraction, racing thoughts... these are all indicators that you are approaching a very powerful force which
is doing everything in its power to prevent you from unlocking it. Do not fall for its siren song. Face it head on. Call it out into the light and
confront it. If you can expose yourself to these discomforts on your own terms in an environment where you can shake it off and walk away whenever you
want, you can begin to prepare yourself for the type of stamina that you will need to face the full discomforts of reality.
