I've been practising changing my handwriting since last Christmas. Weird as the concept sounds, changing your handwriting to change your life does work.
So what's changed for me since Christmas? The first thing I did was change the reversed lower loop on my "f"s. This little habit is called a self-sabotage stroke – and changing it works. I can see that I've had a habit of self-sabotage, and just changing this one little stroke has made an immense change in my outlook.
Self-sabotage handwriting strokes indicate the fear of success:
People that have this trait have a pattern of getting close to success and NOT crossing the finish line. Imagine getting close to a promotion, getting close to a raise, getting near the wedding date, but something always goes wrong. They may blame others, but in reality it is a form of self-sabotage. Close, but no cigar.
Changing your handwriting is not easy, but it's fun. It's meditative to practise, but it takes time to see the results in your everyday writing. However, after almost three months I rarely reverse the lower loops on my fs. Do I still sabotage myself? Time will tell, but I can see and admit to the habit, which is huge progress.
