The Iceberg Metaphor is a model that is used by behavioral scientists, therapist and hypno-therapists alike. It explains how our ‘way of being and doing’ is driven by our thinking and feeling states, as well as our unconscious mind.
Consider this: Only 10 percent of the iceberg’s total mass is above the water, while 90 percent of it remains submerged. Nevertheless, the submerged 90 percent is what the ocean currents act upon. The submerged 90 percent is what creates the iceberg’s behavior at its very tip.
NOW … consider this: When we attempt to change a behavior or create a new habit, we focus on the part of our iceberg that is showing. In terms of permanent weight removal, we focus on how we eat, what we eat, when we eat, when we move our bodies, when we don’t move our bodies.
If you want to create new habits, if you want to permanently remove your excess weight, then consider looking deep, below the surface. Start from the bottom of your submerged iceberg and move up and out into the ‘lite.’
