As adults, we generally move further and further away from believing in what’s possible and settling for what our brains believe is probable or likely to occur. And, since our brains are doing their best to protect us, they throw in all sorts of challenges that could occur, just so we’re prepared for the worst.
This is great, to a certain extent. I mean, it generally keeps us from walking in front of a moving vehicle and stops us from eating something that could be poisonous.
But, living in our primal brains can also keep us from living into our true potential and moving towards the things that make us feel most alive. After all, fears are based on proximity to familiarity. The further we attempt to move away from something that’s familiar to us, the more likely our brains are going to take over and keep us “safe”.
When we stay “safe”, we remove the opportunity for possibility from our lives. And by doing that, we’re preventing the opportunity for deeply living into our own unique set of values.
