Which is why so many coaches/therapists/mentors go on about using affirmations to reprogram your subconscious and change how you see, and feel about, yourself.
But you can be resistant to affirmations, the power of your own thoughts and beliefs can overrule them without you even realising this is what you are doing.
Because you don’t recognise or understand your thought patterns or beliefs.
Maybe you’ve never really sat with them, examined them and sought out their roots.
You are trying to change your life without understanding what got you here.
Without understanding what perpetuates the cycle.

It may well seem like you’re going round in circles when you first start.
But if you stay with it, continue, you will begin to see the patterns in the thoughts and the beliefs that you hold that hold you where you are in life.
How you talk to yourself is integral to how you live your life, how you express yourself and the things you do or don’t do.
But you often don’t see or understand how you talk to yourself as it is so familiar and your “norm” and repetitive!
Writing down your innermost thoughts gives you a completely different perspective and highlights where you are sabotaging yourself.
Once you identify those thoughts and beliefs you can work on changing them to ones that support you.
This is where the affirmations can come in and where that repetition will have the most power because you know what you are trying to change, you understand what is not serving you and you are ready for the changes. You are using repetition to address old repetitive patterns and can target them specifically.
