Without even realizing it, I had mentally conditioned myself to be weak through all the negative experiences that I have had.
Despite wanting to transform my life, I was afraid of failing and doubtful of my own ability to succeed.
To make things worse, I would often feel like I have no energy or motivation to pursue the goals I have set for myself.
And during the times I manage to pick myself up and get started, I would get easily distracted and lose focus on my tasks.
In a desperate attempt to change my circumstances, I read every self-help book I could find.
Most of what I learned did not help much, but they all seemed to suggest that you “think positively”.
The problem was I rarely believed my own positive thoughts and I would often blame myself for any negative thoughts.
“Why can’t I just be more positive?”
“What’s wrong with me?”
And this would just lead me back to a vicious cycle of negative thoughts.
I knew that unless I changed the way I thought, nothing in my life was ever going to change.
But the question was: How?
