What do you think and feel when you read this: You're more than smart enough, you're more than deserving enough to achieve each one of your goals. Do you believe it? Do you believe it to be true every day in every situation?
Neuro-science is constantly learning more about how our brain works. The amygdala, more commonly known as reptile brain, has a specific function: keeping us safe. Everything that gives us a sense of discomfort is interpreted by the amygdala as a danger. When this happens the amygdala takes over other functions of the brain, for instance the frontal cortex which thinks rationally. Our brain in other words gets hijacked.
It's those moments when you act or answer "without thinking".
