Our brain wants to protect us and so all the things that are scary, uncomfortable are difficult to do.
Our mind is designed to stop us, at all costs.
From doing anything.
That might hurt us.
It starts with:
We have a habit of hesitating.
This small moment of hesitating sends a stress signal to our brain.
Our animal mind wants to protect ourselves, and doesn’t want to risk anything.
For instance, the spotlight alert…
Our brain increases the fear not to do it, – for things that perceives to be a problem.
Every problem can be silenced or to be enlarged not to do the best thing.
We will never feel like to do it or to do the best.
So, we have to decide to do it anyway.
Don’t wait until you feel you should do it.
And it is about that 5 seconds that makes you change your best intension.
Every human has that 5 seconds window or even shorter to do it or not to do it. From idea to action before your brain kicks in and sabotages your best intention and so you can change your habits to become better.
If you count 5 4 3 2 1 backwards and then do it.
You interrupt your habit loops that get coded as closed loop patterns, like your procrastinations, fear.
And so, you can decide directly before your hesitating kicks in.
And so, you can learn new habits/things.
This means starting rituals: like the 5 second counting backwards helps you to become better that triggers your confidence, courage, to shift gears it prompts you to move.
For me, is it easy to do the things I don’t like because I have developed a habit to do them in any case.
