Banish The Biggest Barriers To Learning - Fear And Low Self Confidence Are Major Barriers To Happiness, Learning And Success
Stimulate And Create An Adventurous Excitement For Learning - Knowledge Is Power - It's Fun To Be Knowledgeable And Powerful!
Consciously changing to the adventuresome, creative, exploratory side of our minds frees us from the fears that constrain us. This Happiness Habit helps in all aspects of our lives. How does it work?Fear Is A Devastating Distraction - Fear forces us to think about ourselves, what's wrong, our worries and anxieties.
We're so consumed by fear, we're not free to focus on acquiring and absorbing new knowledge. Fear prompts a Fight, Flight or Freeze response, which block learning.Here's a simple strategy that breaks through blocks to learning and performance:
The key to breaking barriers is to consciously make a shift away from negative, judgmental grips on our brain into the expansive adventuresome, exploratory, creative side of our minds.
Ask easy, open ended question like:
- "How could you go about doing it?"
- "Can you use what you already know to solve the problem?"
- "Let's think of ways to make it easy!"
Can be taught and coached at any age.
Low Self Confidence Destroys Belief in ourselves, in our abilities and ability to learn.
When we don't believe we can succeed, we don't put forth real efforts to succeed. We say, Why bother? We'll just be disappointed and frustrated all over again.
"I can't do it." "I'm stupid." "It's too hard." are familiar negative judgments that power learning blocks.
Negative Judgments Foil and Frustrate Our Lives And Our Learning -
Turn Negative Judgments Into Positive Action Items That Help You To Succeed
Use the same open ended questions to turn negative judgments into positive actions:
- "How can I go about doing it?"
- "Where can I get help?"
- "What do I already know that can solve the problem?"
- "How can I make this easier?"
Negative Judgments are the power behind all fears, worry, anxiety and distress. Negative judgments are the building blocks of barriers to learning.
Turn Negative Judgments into positive actions that help you to succeed and be happy.
Whenever you're blocked by negative judgmental barriers, break through with open ended, exploratory questions that stimulate the creative, adventuresome side of your mind.
This is part of Forgetting About One's Self. When we're fully engaged in the excitement of learning, we've forgotten about ourselves and our self conscious fears, worries and doubts.
Switching to excited, exploratory thinking is fun and helps free us from fear. So consciously try to switch the creative, adventuresome side of your brain when you feel blocked.
