The idea that we should be better than we are is a myth. We can’t beat our brains, but we can learn to become better than we are. We can overcome the monkey business illusion and realize that what we think we’re doing is just a bunch of crap.
While we can make our brains better than we are, we don’t have to let them control us. I love this quote from the book, The Power of Habit, by John C. Maxwell, “The best way to improve your life is to improve your habits.” I would go so far as to say that we should all be trying to improve our habits, but this is not always the case.
While habits and routines can be hard to break, you must be able to change them. While we all know that it is hard to break an old habit, it is even harder to change a routine that has been in place for years. The more you change your routine, the harder it becomes to stay on it.
This is why I say that the better you are at habits, the more you have to change them. If you are a master at having a routine and doing it well, you are likely to be the best at changing it. The challenge is doing it well. If you are a slave to your routine, you are going to be stuck doing the same thing over and over again. If you are doing the routine wrong, you will have to change it from time to time.
The reason I put this down to habits is because I think there are two types of habits. There are “habits” like the one I describe above and then there are “self-preservation” habits. In the latter category, there is a tendency to want to keep things the same way. You know, “I don’t like change”. The problem with this is that it’s a very passive thing.
The other kind of habit I’m referring to is that of self-preservation. This is when we want to keep things the way they are because we think it will be safe for us to do so. This is something we will see more and more often in our lives. For example, I have a tendency to like to play video games and watch movies. That’s because I believe that is a way for me to relax and enjoy my life.
I’ve found that the more I feel like I’m stuck in a rut, the more I want to change things up. I’m sure there are a lot of people that feel the same way. The problem is that when something stays the same, the way you feel about what’s happening changes. That can be uncomfortable.
One way to make yourself feel better is to do something that has nothing to do with the things you do. It isn’t that we shouldn’t be doing things because it’s not important, it’s just that in this case the important thing is not what we are doing, but the fact that we’re doing it. If we can change the way we feel about something by doing something that has nothing to do with it, then that’s a win.
This is a common, but often unrealistic, belief that we can change the way we feel about something just by doing something else. It’s not true. We can change the way we feel about something by doing something else, but it’s not the same thing. We can do something that has nothing to do with something we were doing, and that something else may have nothing to do with the thing we were doing.
The only way to change how we feel about something is to do something that has nothing to do with it. This is called the monkey business illusion, and it’s something that the best psychics and mind readers can see from time to time.
