OUR CURRENT LIFE (AND THE FUTURE WE ARE CREATING) ARE A REFLECTION OF OUR SELF-IMAGE AND ASSOCIATED BELIEFS.
Every aspect of our life links
back to our self-image.
Remember that we
will never outperform our self-image.
The self-image is the seat of the subconscious mind.
If we do not take charge of our
self-image and become APO about becoming the CEO of our lives, each thought, feeling and action only serves to strengthen old ways of being (cow paths).
We become stuck in these paths of least resistance simply because they are familiar and require less energy. Remember, the subconscious mind prefers the status quo and does not care if old cow paths serve you, or if they are painful.
Remember also, we are not born with the identity of addict or problem user. Regardless of past situations or current circumstances we have ability to decide how to "see the self."
Remember this too...any individual who is working towards protecting and caring for the future self is becoming the CEO of their lives, even as they are struggling with sobriety.
