make a change we can change these habits and behaviors as well.
It also explains why so many people will fail at making these
changes on their own, regardless of the different programs they
have tried. When working with the subconscious, it is important

make a difference. They also should be prepared that it is

entirely successful. A bad habit or way of thinking was not
developed overnight, so it is high unlikely that they can
be broken overnight as well.
