Years ago before I was able to see positive changes, I had to start with some introspection. Not always the easiest thing to do, but powerful! I believe some of the most powerful questions are the ones we ask our self. Yes, the journey begins within!
The lies you tell yourself that are not true, create undesirable results in your life. Once you realize all the negative things in your life were put there by YOU, growth and positive change can occur. Negative things in your life come from ideas you have held to be true and tell yourself over and over. Once you discover the root of these thoughts, you can choose for things to be different by focusing on the opposite.
I have recorded an exercise available at www.couplesmoney.com that walks through a process I have used to uncover beliefs that were holding me back.
