Imagine that you are the captain of an old battleship floating on the icy ocean. You see a large iceberg approaching. What do you do? You fire cannon balls at the iceberg to break it up. What happens? More of the underside of the iceberg emerges. You fire your cannon again and again, until the entire iceberg is shattered and thin.
You are the captain. Your mind is the ocean. Your negative thought-habits are the icebergs; they have more depth to them than you think. Your positive affirmations are the cannon balls. Keep firing. Don’t give up; the thought-habits will break up.
Did you like that? Then start firing!
