Roots

influential and crucial – ROOTS

“Thinking:

I can change a behavior just by removing the behavior.

is absurd.

The behavior isn’t the root problem.

The neural pathway that leads me to the behavior is the problem.

If I stop a behavior, it will come back, unless I…

  1. remove the lie at the root of the behavior, and
  2. replace the neural pathway that leads me to the behavior.

“Where will we get these new thoughts? (Hint: we won’t get them from scrolling through social media posts, listening to our favorite playlist, or phoning a friend for their opinion.) “
