The Myth of WillPower
Coping skills and strategies solely rely on your willpower to be executed, but will, which is the realm of the conscious mind, is but a “short-term agency.” A perfect example of what this means is New Year’s Resolutions. If you’ve ever made one, this may be familiar; you set up your mind to do something only to find yourself failing and back at square one i.e. relapses.
People can’t change their behavior because the conventional approach does not address one “self-concept,” i.e. what you believe about yourself to be true. To do this, you must alter your view of your self-worth at the level where belief and perception reside. This is the realm of the Subconscious Mind. It requires the proper methodology, which is a deeper form of intervention.
