Having written down some of what I see as my failings, I have come to realise that those failures were not down to me, but down to parental issues of me. But it’s up to us take control of what we fail at so we can take back control. I know that now.
Below are some questions that could help assess where we are:
- Are you productive or non-productive?
- Do you continually blame your parents for your life?
- Are you happy to take control or do your parents control you?
- Do you find yourself doing as your parents have done?
- Are you continuing to repeat the same mistakes as your parents?
- Are you living with the same bad habits or patterns?
- Are you in a rut and don’t know how to change your life?
As children, we form the patterns set out by our parents, until we learn how to change them. Recognition is the key to change, particularly around bad habits. I had to be we prepared to change the way I thought and the way I used to react to things. You can too.
Positive affirmations that work on the subconscious brain, helped change some of my thinking. The rest came about through confidence. Confidence to believe I could contribute to my life positively, through new eyes.
