Have you ever tried to change a “bad” habit (eating candy, smoking, not exercising, watching Honey Boo Boo, etc.), only to feel powerless against the momentum of something that you know is bad for you?
This is incredibly frustrating, but we beat ourselves up for the wrong reason. We think, “Man, I must be so weak if I can’t do something that I know is logically a better choice for me and my future.”
In reality, we’re looking at the wrong part of the problem. We are focusing on how much proof we have, when really we should be focusing on what belief (either conscious or unconscious) we have about that habit.
