The key to removing patterns is awareness. We need to be able to recognize our behaviors as they occur. For instance if we feel that we are not good enough, we must see these feelings of inadequacy as they arise. One tool is to recognize the effects on your body. Does your face become flushed? Do your shoulders droop? Do you lower your gaze? Another device is developing the intent each morning to become aware of the moment that you fall into the pattern. A watchdog that barks at the right time can signal a need for a better choice.
