EMB #544: Are your Excuses Stronger than your Solutions?

Are your Excuses Stronger than your Solutions

Today we are going to talk about how our brains are conditioned. I think sometimes we don’t realize that we are conditioned one way or the other, so that’s going to be a good topic. So when it comes to conditioning your mind, I think a lot of times we don’t realize that your brain is actually conditioned for different things, and so the easiest one is conditioned for success or failure. 

Many times our brains are conditioned for happiness or sadness. You walk around upset, angry, depressed. That’s a mindset. And I think it’s a really difficult subject for people to understand and wrap their head around and maybe even cause some anger, like, ‘it’s not my fault. I’m angry.’ All right, but that’s a mindset. The mindset is where you are in how you’re situated. 

Because we all know what it’s like. We understand, like it’s what we focus on in most cases. So when we focus on things that aren’t so happy, it makes our difference, our energy down, it makes our mood down. So if we focus on things that change our mood, it changes our state of mind.

Tony Robbins talks about your state, your mental state, your overall state of being. And then he uses triggers to help change the state that you’re in. And it’s quite impressive. He was one of the first self-help guys I started learning from.
