Have you ever tried having one foot in the gas pedal while having the other on the brake?
This is exactly what happens often with your brain. Your conscious brain desires something that your sub-conscious brain finds threatening.
Being the primary function of your sub-conscious brain to keep you safe and work as effectively as possible, anything that challenges this status quo, any change will be at first be treated by your sub-conscious brain as a risk. So while your rational conscious brain wants to hit the gas pedal your sub-conscious brain will hit the brake.
So how do you get past this? The first step is finding out if these two different networks in your brain are in coherence or dissonance.
Some cues that you have neural dissonance are:
worry & stress
On the contrary if you have neural coherence you will identify it by some of the following:
feeling comfortable, clear and focused
Being in dissonance takes lots of energy and is really quite exhausting. Working harder will not solve it. it's about working smarter and training your brain into new patters that are aligned with your new self image and the great goals and dreams you wish to reach.
