Many of modern man are not related

Many limiting beliefs originate in early childhood and live with us for the rest of our lives. They work like mental labels that guard us. But there is also a downside to the coin: our brains generalize everything that happens and builds models, not taking into account the nuances of the situation. It turns out that these models are inaccurate. However, to ensure our survival, they should not be perfectly accurate. We have enough of these, especially when quick solutions are required.If you want to understand what is happening to you at this moment, then I advise you to turn to that stage of the evolution of our brain, when the human neocortex surrounded the older limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions, behavior, motivation and long-term memory. Neocortex manages conscious decisions, intellectual activity and language.These different parts of the brain evolved to help us survive. However, many of the goals of modern man are not related to survival – let us take at least passive income. Your brain does not have such a function as “helping to achieve the goal of passive income.” However, the brain is very flexible and can adapt its activities to this goal.If we set ourselves a goal that is not related to survival, then we can not rely on our original mental programming. These programs help us in more difficult situations when it comes to survival. But for bold ambitions they are not very suitable. So sometimes you need to set up this programming for more painstaking work to eliminate unnecessary limitations. For example, we do not want our brain to evoke an emotion of fear at the thought of changing jobs. We want to make reasonable decisions based on our own knowledge and skills, and not emotional responses from childhood.And now think, can you create a new source of passive income, if that’s what you want? If your answer is yes, then the next steps will be very simple. But will your limbic system, responsible for emotions and motivation, agree with this decision? Alas, most often it will be against. Your decision to acquire a passive income limbic system interprets as some threat to your survival. Therefore, it will force you to avoid actions that could endanger you, even if this danger is imaginary. Soon your neocortex receives this information from the limbic system, and as a result you have to come up with various excuses to explain your inability to act.It is better to play safely and avoid places where predators can hide. The generalization of some situations (in terms of survival) is quite normal, because one mistake can cost us life, especially in childhood. But such cases as embarrassment in public speaking or financial failure – this, you must agree, still does not relate to the threat of life. Of course, they can cause similar responses in your thoughts and behavior, but do not be led by it. Often failures in work and financial life help your further training and growth, and making similar mistakes is sometimes even profitable.Whether you like it or not, you are still a mammal, and have inherited from them the appropriate mental baggage – including the ability to survive in this world. On the other hand, you need to compensate for this baggage, suggesting that you would like to live a richer life than most other mammal
