How often have you heard someone say, “People do not change”? I don’t know about you, but I have lost count; and in the back of my head I am thinking, “What bullshit”. Of course many people may think I have lost my mind, and I am happy to say I have lost my mind! Okay, I am not crazy, but I have grown; I have changed.
I used to be afraid of a lot of things in life. Fear seemed to have consumed a large portion of who I was; and it hindered my progress in almost every aspect of my life, from pushing to be better at sports in fear of self injury (okay that one is reasonable), fear of progressing at work, and even fear of relationships and commitment. Some times I was afraid that some stranger would attack me in a dark alley. My fear controlled such a huge aspect of my life that it pushed away almost everything that was good for me.
I have been reflecting and thinking lots lately. I have been doing the gratitude challenge that I posted last week and while I was on Day 4 it said, “Write a short message of thanks for some of the ‘negative’ things in your life.” This made me realize something.

So, you want to change your self? You want to conquer depression, you want to get rid of your bad habits, or… you just want to change whatever it is about yourself to become the you; The "You" that want to be.
Becoming the "you" that you want to be seems quite simple but like our gratitude challenge can be challenging at times. In this post I will explain a bit on how our brain works to help build an understanding of our exercises and how you can put this knowledge to work to greatly benefit yourself and to start the change you so desire today.
