At the bottom of the Grand Canyon flows the mighty Colorado River. It has cut it’s way down through the earth over thousands of years. But at some point, a long time ago, it was just a large stream-поток Maybe just a few feet deep in the middle, running it’s way over the rocky terrain. Grand Canyon. At that time, you probably could have changed it’s course by putting a foot down or by placing a few rocks in it’s path.
Fast forward thousands of years and that stream has become an enormous river. Not only that, it has cut a path into the solid rock that is over a mile deep. At this point, you could spend a lifetime trying to change the course of the river without any success. The path has become so engrained-заканаленой, and the canyon so deep that it’s course cannot be changed.Everything we do comes down to -сводится к- streams or rivers of nerve impulses running through our brain. The things we have done for a long time, like walking, are deep channels, like the Grand Canyon. The newer things, like learning a new instrument, are just tiny-крошечный little streams in our brain. So the longer we have performed a habit, good or bad, the harder it will be for it to change. This is really the main reason why people have a hard time sticking to a diet or quitting smoking.
1. Control the Spring-источник
. Many rivers start from a spring of water coming out of the earth. If you control when and where a river begins, you have a better chance of
which direction it flows. If you want to stop eating fast food, don’t drive by your favorite take-out place when you’re hungry. If you end up
too much time on Facebook when you should be working, delete the Facebook link from your browser so it is just a little harder to
get there. Find the triggers or circumstances
that lead to
the bad habit, and avoid
them...( Collapse )
