We all have them...
You know the kind of thing, they normally start with: "I can't because..." Then there is a 'very good' sounding reason why you can't do something.
But it's just a story you tell yourself, one you've been listening to for years. And I'll let you into a secret... It's also a hypnotic suggestion!
Yep, you've been hypnotising yourself into believing that you can't because of some story... and the CRAZIEST part is, it might even be someone else's story that they told you!
Well meaning parents and teachers do this to their kids ALL the time, then they grow up believing and repeating the same story.
