To convince yourself of anything, you need to first start asking yourself what your current belief system is on the topic.
Why do you believe that way?
What is your reasoning behind it?
Do you have any tangible evidence that has caused you to come to that conclusion?
What do you feel about it?
Once you have isolated everything in yourself, both the mental and emotional states, that are currently attached to that belief – then you can start to ask yourself things like:
What if this other thing were true, what would I need to believe?
How would my life be different I believed this?
Can I imagine myself believing this?
What if I believed this now?
And so on…
It is entirely possible to do, it just takes some deep analaysis.
