I hope you all had an amazing weekend and got out to enjoy the sun a bit! We had our kids over for my daughter’s 17th birthday and I heard a story from my stepson, Jack. He mentioned that a person in their community was ranting about how horses should be the only ones allowed on the local trails and that mountain bikers and hikers should not use them.

This actually reminded me of the second training I did with VLC: 2 Minutes with Ham. Our automatic reactions start with our past. Our past dictates how we see things, and any stimulus we don’t want is automatically rejected…like bikes and hikers on trails.

If we decide that we want to change, our subconscious reminds us that it wants control by causing fear, anxiety, anger, and doubt.

I bring this up because we are moving ahead with several trainings that we have been discussing. At some point during these trainings, there will be frustration, anxiety, and doubt. At some point, people may want to just keep things the way they are. Here’s another reminder: Our subconscious prefers to keep things the same.

Fear not, we are not going to turn everything on end. But, we owe it to the success of VLC to evaluate how we function, so that we can improve how we function.

What areas of learning do you automatically reject?

In what ways does your subconscious mind guide you toward your comfort zone?

Incidentally, my wife and I were walking in Empire Mine on Sunday and we viewed a mountain biker stop his bike when he saw several horses approaching. They thanked him but said their horses were used to bikes. He said “Have a great ride!” and they mirrored his sentiment.

Sometimes holding onto old habits and preconceived notions gets in the way of positive steps forward.

Have a great week!
