You’ve probably heard the story of the elephant.
The one where they tied up an elephant when he was a kid.
And by the time he was a big elephant, his trainers didn’t need the rope any more.
He’d been conditioned that going too far out would restrict him.
So he’d been trained to stay close to the center where the rope around his leg used to be tied to.
This is a helpful description of what happens to most humans when we grow up.
We are given restrictions when we are young.
When we grow up, we no longer have those restrictions, but we still remember them.
And just like the elephant we act “as if” they are still there.
This comes across as “imposter syndrome,” and self sabotage.
The structure is pretty simple.
We’re little kids, and we discovering something pretty cool.
Inside of our little brains, we are getting more and more excited.
We are exploring something, and the more we have fun exploring that thing, the greater our sense of adventure and curiosity gets.
Unfortunately, this is when the adults notice us.
And shout something meant to keep us from getting hurt.
Don’t Do That!
Stay Out Of There!
This, unfortunately, sets an anchor.
So when we’re adults, we start to get more and more success.
Gonna Get Yelled At
And that growing success feels very much like that growing adventurous excitement we felt as a kid.
But as a kid, that growing sense of adventurous excitement was almost always shut down by an angry voice.
This is what creates self sabotage.
We IMAGINE that somebody is going to start shouting at us just as we are getting closer and closer to the good stuff.
This what pretty much defines our comfort zone.
This is NOT natural.
Before we lived in modern societies, we lived as cave people for 200,000 years.
So that fake comfort zone has been put ON TOP of our instincts.
Just like the rope, the fake constraint was put on that elephant.
On it’s own, the elephant just thinks that’s the way it is.
But it would be very, very easy to train the elephant to move about freely like his instincts want to.
Let Loose Your Killer
Just like it’s easy to train yourself to get rid of that false comfort zone so you can move about freely like you want to.
Humans didn’t conquer the Earth by living inside of imaginary constraints.
Humans didn’t make all the large animals go extinct by carrying around a bunch of imaginary limitations.
Your comfort zone is not real.
And when you train it out of your brain, you will be surprised to find your ancient killer inside.
Who can’t WAIT to get out into the world and conquer.
