Once one I was VERY depressed (that was the time I started to use self improvement stuff like 2 years ago), I started to use affirmations in front of the mirror with emotions,and I was jokingly said I am a demigod. After around 2-3 months I became normal dude with normal self confidence etc. Then one of my sad friend said we are not demigod like you we can't break this addiction. I am pretty sure our subconscious body "speak"s our beliefs,when I was listening to alpha male hypnosis fro 2 months straight I noticed lot of body language etc changes. Most people then told me I should look for leeadership positon, I stopped using it and the effect slightly decreased. But I don't think they know this at a conscious level,mabye they feel something tho.Our maybe we just filter out reality and we pay more attention to these things,our maybe dear quantum field and or morphic field does it magic.
