Cognitive Dissonance and how to make it end


Hey Coaches –

I’m in the middle of some big and really uncomfortable cognitive dissonance. I am doing everything I can think of to believe my new thoughts – journaling every day, reading and looking at the thoughts I want to believe daily, looking for evidence, thought work/homework every day, watching videos, taking some actions – and I can’t do it. I’ve been trying so hard, now I feel like I don’t know how to do it at all. I feel like I’m so bad at this. The thoughts I want to believe are that I can help people as a Life Coach, what I’ll teach and do is valuable, and that people can have real, lasting transformations. It seems like no matter how many changes I make to myself or how I transform or what I get done, my brain always says it’s not good enough, and life coaching isn’t good enough. It’s SO scary and I want it to end. I want to believe new things so badly.

Could you explain exactly what to do to move me from the old thought to the new thought?
