Why can't I get this...

Updated: Jan 9, 2021

This doesn't work for me...


I am sure you have had these conversations with yourself over the years...


and if you say you haven't......then I call bullshit.


So why do we struggle to change and do new things?


Because we have wired our thinking to be comfortable and safe where we are...


The Human Being is an animal and like all animals it is efficient at what it does...


This is why we get comfortable in our way of thinking...


And sometimes this leads to us getting stuck.


In our brains, the neural pathways are the routes that our thoughts take to make sense of things...


For example, you touch ice, and you know that thing you're touching is cold.....that neural pathway is set....think of it as a road....


In this case, that road is like a Super 5 lane highway.


When we try something new it is more like a trail through some grass.


However, over time, if we were to keep walking that same trail, it would turn into a track...


If we continued, that track would become a pathway, then a road, then a dual carriageway, then a highway...


Eventually it would become a Super 5 lane highway.


The difficutly is starting that new trail and remembering to keep using it...


Because it takes time to create a new trail, it takes effort and sometimes that trail doesn't lead you to where you want to be...


So what do you do?
