Learning: basics and fundamentals
we learn a lot without even realizing it and without even trying. We witness how the people closest to us think, behave, and react. Some of the lessons we learn are very beneficial to us, and others, not so much. The latter are the ones to be aware of. These are the ones that need to be rewired, so they can be unlearned.
People do, because many do it that way. "Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it." ~ Leo Tolstoy
What we have learned over the years has been drilled into us, and cemented in with repetition. This process secures the hard wiring that creates our behaviors and beliefs. It prevents us to correct something learnt wrong.
Unlearning them can be quite the challenge. We need to relearn.
- List Things to Relearn…
- Preparation involves carving out time for reading, researching and doing our homework about things around us.
- Acceptance that what we learnt or felt or understood was wrong (fully or partially)
- Correct it by repetition, to erase hardwired information stored in the brain. (some will be in subconscious region, which we may not be aware of)
- It's all in our mind - because it can be both a beautiful servant or a monstrous master.
