All that happens is you zoom in on your perceived faults, and you will make yourself feel even worse. When you don't connect with the affirmations, they have no meaning for you - and they're simply empty words. If you don't feel confident - you don't even like yourself - and the idea of loving yourself is as far removed as the moon.
You have to have a specific mindset in order to be able to succeed at changing something about yourself that you're not happy with. No matter how unhappy you are, you know that it's difficult to imagine how you can reach your goal, so it can seem easier to stay where you are . . . but you don't stay where you are. You become increasingly more frustrated, and more unhappy, as you feel life slipping by without you fulfilling the dreams locked inside you.
LACK OF CONFIDENCE ISN'T JUST A BAD HAIR DAY
Lack of confidence is not simply feeling unsure about whether a style of dress suits you - it's not even going into a dress shop - because you don't feel you deserve something special. Low self-esteem is when you say you want to lose weight, but after putting more weight back on after each failed dieting attempt, you can't even imagine yourself looking slim in a gorgeous outfit.
The source of having no self-confidence lies with your family. From any form of abuse, to being told that it's not good to get 'above yourself', or 'nobody likes someone who's conceited'; when you're always put down, and never praised - you feel worthless.
You're supposed to be able to depend on your family for support, but when they don't provide it, you lack faith and trust in all your future relationships. This undermines everything you attempt to do. It's extremely sad to know you have talents and skills you want to share, but you always fail through different forms of self-sabotage - purely because you don't feel good enough, or deserving of success.
YOU CAN FEEL THE DIFFERENCE WITH Z POINT
Don't keep your gifts trapped inside you - the Z Point Process can release all the painful memories from the past. You can move from tears, to a sense of hope that you never entertained before, in a single session. You will feel distant from the hurt, and much lighter. Leave the heavy burden of the past behind, and allow Z Point to re-build your confidence.
The difference that makes Z Point work is that you feel the change in yourself. Before, you knew that positive affirmations didn't work, because you didn't value yourself, so they didn't apply to you. Afterwards, you know through experience that it is possible to let go of the memories of the past, and create a new set of beliefs. Feeling hope where there was none before is worth that brave step of trying something new. Z Point is a safe place to land.
