Your habits didn’t happen overnight
Who you are, your habits and your beliefs didn’t happen overnight. They were formed as you went through life and had different experiences. Sometimes, you’ll remember an experience you haven’t thought about for years. But you find it’s actually influencing the decisions you make today. Even something as simple as being much younger than your siblings and not being able to keep up with them can make a lasting impression on you as you not being “good enough”. Our minds are creative and can come up with very different beliefs or decisions. Many times these decisions are nothing like what our adult brain would decide.
Keep in mind you that while you can make big changes in a short amount of time, be patient. Sometimes there are many layers to an issue or belief that need to be looked at and let go of.
To create real and lasting change work consistently
If you want real and lasting change, it takes consistency. A commitment to change and the consistency of looking at the habits and beliefs that don’t support your success. You have to look at the events and people in your life who affected how you view the world. Your beliefs about past emotional events is what blocks your success. Commit to working through these events in a consistent manner and your life will change.
It doesn’t have to be a painful process
Work on the layers gradually
