Decide who you are, and do it on purpose...
We know what we're supposed to do, we've read the books right? Daily affirmations, positive thinking, visualizations, high self-esteem, etc. But sometimes it's just not enough, it feels like we need more traction than these exercises can give us.
The missing link is intensity of conviction.
Your belief system must be solidly in place before your brain will allow meaningful changes to occur. In my opinion the best way to do this is to take some time and make the decision of who you are. Right now schedule a time for yourself to reflect and write down who you are and where you want to be.
Once you've taken this step, your entire being must then embrace the change you want to see.
It's not enough to just repeat it to yourself every morning, it must be felt in your body as if you were already there, it must occupy your thoughts to the extent that you have become a new person in thought alone. When get to this level you feel stronger, your actions take on new meaning, and you become the change you want to see.
Is it easy? Not a chance, it took you a lifetime to become who you are, but your brain has the power to turn it around if only you give it the right tools.
Go be who you are, and jump start your day.
