My psychology teacher in university used to say that praise, instead of criticism, can have a powerful effect on people.
Most of your subconscious beliefs have been shaped in your early childhood and beliefs shape your reality. Later in life, many of those beliefs are limiting instead of helping you such as: I can’t do this, I am not X enough, I am a failure, … the list could go on and on but these limiting beliefs have something in common: they will be only true for you as long as you believe in them and as long as they are unconscious.
Check in and see if a belief resonates with your desired reality and if not, change it.
Start to create the life you really want.
