In this video Sensei Ryan speaks out about habits and asks, do you have a friend or loved one that is difficult to be around because their mood swings bring you down? Do you want to smack them upside the head and say, “stop your darn complaining and do something about it!” Could this person be you sometimes?
The reason this happens is because of conditioning. If we think back many years, we didn’t use to act this way. Ok…Some people did, but most of us use to feel like we had more energy, more life and more happiness. But then something happened, we had our heart broken, a cherished pet died, or we simply crashed on a major test in school. This event anchored a new way of thinking and we started doing things in a less desirable way. Doing these things in a less desirable way, over and over again, we allowed them to it became bad habits. Now whenever the anchor triggers us, we fall right into that way of thinking.
So, how do we change those undesirable habits? Simple, in theory. Create a new anchor. Simply remove yourself from the negative situation. If you or a family member or friend has fallen into undesirable habits, catch yourself, your friend, or family member immediately and disrupt the pattern, change the subject, the location or situation as fast as possible.
Lastly, you have to create a new anchor. But that is for another video.
Are you curious about the video? My son didn’t do his homework, so next Wednesday we will finish this in the Epic Father Son Battle!
