There was a time in history that the medical community believed bloodletting would cure diseases. Scientists are now investigating sunblock to determine if it causes us more problems than the threat of sunburn and UV exposure. There was a time when we believed the Earth was the center of the universe and others planets circled us versus the opposite. It was once thought that women were incapable of intellect because they had a smaller brain than men. So what is my point?
If you do not occasionally reevaluate your thought processes you might find yourself viewing life in ways that are not only standing in the way of your progress, but actually holding you back from bettering yourself. Humans use habit to relieve the brain of having to work hard 100% of the time; like being on autopilot. The downside of habits is they create a “rut” that people easily follow regardless of productivity. Meaning people continue to carry out actions and thoughts regardless of the influence on their life.
If you have read my blog for any length of time you may be familiar with me saying “change your thinking, change your life.” Once you realize you have spent the last 10 years “bloodletting” while the remainder of civilized society has moved on to more modern medicine, it is time to change habits.
I reevaluate my habits often to make sure they are giving me the results I want in life. If I find a habit that has become unproductive I cast it aside and replace with a different action.
This way I am continuing to move forward and continuing to give myself the best opportunity to reach my goals!
