Once upon a time, long, long ago, a situation was experienced and thoughts were formed in response.
As time went by, those thoughts swirled around the mind and were even vocalized from time to time.
But every time each of those thoughts were thought or spoken aloud, they grew stronger.
I can't lose weight
I can't control my eating
I can't exercise
Whenever focused on, the belief in those thoughts grew ever more powerful.
I can't give up alcohol
I can't stop smoking
I can't find healthy foods I like
I can't give up cakes and biscuits
Once these thoughts had become solid beliefs, any time a similar experience was had, it just reinforced that thought and made it more compelling.
I've always struggled with my weight
I've always found losing weight hard
I've always been overweight
The more compelling the thoughts and beliefs became, the more potent they were. The more hold they had over the mind.
I always fail at dieting
I always end up sabotaging myself
I always struggle to sleep
I've always been like this
When potent beliefs are held, they have the power to keep the believer stuck. Stuck in a vicious cycle. Unable to make any progress.
The more these beliefs are treated as facts rather than stories, the more real they become. The more they can influence daily life.
This story does however have a hero/heroine, called CHOICE.
Choice is always there, ready to save the day.
If the choice is made to let go of destructive, limiting beliefs and they are replaced with healthy, positive, beneficial beliefs, then there really can be a happy ending.
You are the author of your own story and the creator of your own reality.
