    Emotions, Triggers & Stories

    Emotions, Triggers & Stories
    “Your state is a state of mind. Change your state, and you can change your life.” ~ Tony Robbins
    “Your state of mind is often a default disposition. It’s a habit that can be modified with intention and practice.” ~ M. Grunburg
    Emotions: Beyond the Trigger Lies the Story
    Tony Robbins nails it when he speaks about how a red flashing light in your rearview mirror can instantly change your physiology - your physical state.
    But, there’s more to the story, so to speak.
    That jolt of emotion – fear – isn’t purely a reaction to the red light itself.
    The fear reaction is associated with a story about the red light.
    The red light triggers a stored story in our minds; either a direct or shared memory from past experiences about red flashing lights in rear-view mirrors.

    Practice. Practice. Practice.
    “The road to excellence lies in deliberate practice.” - Anders Ericsson
    “Excellence, then, is not a single act, but a habit.” ~Aristotle
    If “excellence” is a habit and the road to excellence is paved via deliberate or intentional practice, then both habit and skill development require PRACTICE.
    Ericsson, a renowned psychologist pioneered the term “deliberate practice” back in 1996.* (More on intentional vs deliberate practice below)
    The Spirit of Aloha
    We all yearn for more aloha in our life; kindness, love, compassion and respect.
    Interestingly enough, these qualities, just like any virtue, do not arise from mere aspiration; rather each is developed through intentional practice.
    Personality traits, virtues, habits and skills are a result of practice.

    “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
    Note: There are a few occasions where MG accidentally says determination instead of determinism.
    For eons, a philosophical debate has raged: Free will vs determinism.
    Where do you stand? Determinism says you have no free will, and that all actions and events are predetermined.
    However, free will says, you are fully accountable and responsible for your entire life.
    Once again, MG takes the middle path in this debate.
    “Life is much like any card or board game. You have rules (in life these are laws like gravity, etc. AND you have chance and randomness. You have the ability to move up and across the board and can influence your results, and your are subject to chaos and randomness.”
    One of the worst quotes, it may make some people feel better but it’s absent much critical thinking is: “Well, EVERYTHING happens for a reason.”
    Depending upon what happened, a tsunami in indonesia killing thousands. Or an earthquake in Japan. Or, the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryan. Good luck telling his wife and children that it happened for a reason.”
    again, it may make them feel better by creating a story to support a theory of determinism.
    Speaking of stories; since there truly is something called chaos and randomness – if not, we probably wouldn’t have those phrases. In legalese, these are know as “Acts of God.”
    So, when it comes to luck it’s important to recogbize that it does exist. Thomas Jefferson reportedly said, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.
    There is an entire TED talk her on ways to influence your luck.
    So a few questions for you to ponder:
    Does luck exist?
    Are you lucky?
    How can you enhance your luck?
    Enjoy the show!

    From the world of statistics: All models are flawed, but some are useful.
    We asked Google’s AI experiment Gemini to “break” the “3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System” behavior model.
    The short story (no pun intended), is he/she/IT could not.
    The best Gemini could offer: “What about people who aren’t aware of their unconscious stories/thinking?”
    It’s a good question and a nice attempt. However, an unconscious story is still a story (represented within the model), and that is the point of the latest book, EVERYTHING is a F*cking STORY where the latest version of the model was revealed.
    BTW: You are invited to try and “break” the “3 Circles of Behavior Echo-System” behavior model as well.

    “The Three Circles of Behavior Echo-System” / The Grunburg Behavior Model is a holistic, fluid, and dynamic behavior-change model. It’s the very first behavior-change model to demonstrate how our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and even our environment vibrate (echo and reverberate) to influence each other.
    Hence, it’s an “Echo-System” not an eco-system. All prior behavior models represent human behavior in a linear-flow type diagram.Background here.

Reset

I’ve been consuming Martin’s content for several years. The topics discussed within this podcast are timeless and worthy of study in any environment. It is one of my main go to’s especially when I need to reset my mind and actions that tend to drift away often due to many challenges of life. Simple and effective approach. Highly recommend!!!

Suggestion

Martin,
See my previous comment. The content is great, but I wish you would change your podcast name back to the original HabitFactor instead of Habits2Goals. My only goal is to develop and maintain healthy habits. The notion of Goals gets too complicated and may confuse many. Need to be clear & calm before we can identify goals. At least make it clear that we don’t have to set our Goals before starting down this path.
