We need to find the force to fight ourselves when we say ” I can’t do it”. Persisting is not an easy process that as a human being we need to use it. I can see myself doing the same thing couple of years ago. changing my carrier from being a lawyer was not an easy decision. When I started taking a science course, sometimes I felt exhausted and I want it to drop the course. it was not an easy process to talk to myself and find a solution, I saw that are many different ways to solve this problem, and asking for help is a way that I do not feel uncomfortable anymore. I start to build plan B or C, in case my plan A does not work. I was not seeing that as a failure but as a way to persist in my success.
I have used habits of mind, without knowing that. I found myself in most of those habits, and I like to practice as much as I can, questioning myself while taking an action, or saying anything, before saying something to someone or giving an opinion. We need to take into consideration other people’s ideas, opinions, and feelings. We are not all the same, but using the habits of minds we can create a positive environment and a healthy relationship with others.
It seems easy to say that I want to listen to others before saying anything or acting, but it is a hard process that we incorporate our brain with our vulnerability to talk before listening. I was doing Yoga for a while, and as a person that I react very quickly, it helps me to talk before with my own self before jumping to conclusions. When we process our own thinking the changes to her someone are very rare.
