How many of us start out with good intentions of changing or working through something, then give up at the first hurdle?
Any decision we make that gets in the way of accomplishing or achieving what we initially set out to do is self-sabotage. It’s normally because we lack a certain motivation or discipline, the two key elements that allow us to carry out getting the job done.
Learned behaviours set in, patterns are formed, but we must still be committed to change. Any change seems daunting, but that is why some of us may subconsciously choose not to change. We usually work from a list of excuses as to why we can’t.
As a child, this is more commonplace, but as the adult there are ways to work to change things that hold us back. With confidence, emotionally we are more open to change and challenges as we grow, primarily because we’re mature enough not to see those challenges as fears any more.
Having confidence helps take any fears away.
