I’m reading this great book called, How to Break the Habit of Being Yourself, by Dr. Joe Dispenza. While there are so many inspiring quotes and concepts in this book that will help you break through the facts that keep you stuck where you’re at, I want to talk about Hebb’s Law (page 45).
Hebb’s law says that ‘nerve cells that fire together, wire together’. What this means for you, in a nutshell, is that you become addicted to an emotional state and physical environment!
Let’s state this again, because it bears repeating…
All of us – even you – become addicted to our current state and environment…
As I look how this plays out in my own life, the implications are positively staggering!
This explains why it often takes a major crisis or deep ‘dark night of the soul’ in order for us to make changes in our life.
Five years ago, I was in a very unhappy place. I was so stuck, but so unwilling to make changes. And then change was forced on me in ways that I fought against, even though those changes were in my best interest.
Even as changes in my physical home environment occurred, I fought it.
Even as I struggled to get myself emotionally stable, part of me still fought to stay in that place of unhappiness.
And even as I struggled to get my business off the ground, parts of me where fighting those changes all the way!
Has any of that happened to you?
Have you had a situation where part of you wanted to move forward and other parts of you were afraid to step onto the path that would take you to your dreams?
I talk to young and budding entrepreneurs almost every week. Every single one of them – every single one – talk to me about their dreams and visions of making a difference in the world, and when I show them a way to do that, they pull back… they make excuses… and they allow their fears and stuck emotions to hold them back.
What is it going to take for you to listen to the brave dreamer in you… and let go of the fearful hesitant voice that holds you back?
When you can answer that question, you will move forward.
Until then, you will continue to resist the flow of life pulling you into living a larger life!
