Have you ever noticed just how much things you get to achieve when you’re under pressure?
For instance when you owe someone money and your time is due. Regardless of whether you have money or not you somehow find a way of paying off that credit & looking back in hindsight you go like, “wow!” how did I do that. Relate? Follow me
I used to wonder like what really happens during times of pressure that makes us achieve things that are way beyond us until I realized something which immediately changed my perspective.
You see, the human brain isn’t used to pressure & the like, it’s not used to being challenged. It always translates pressure as a bad thing. It plays tricks on us by making us think like we’ll die, that is why it’s easy for human beings to get comfortable in any given situation.
Another example: Imagine you’re supposed to sit for a school exam in a few days but you have arrears & don’t have the money to settle them. Believe you me it’s funny how you’ll quickly find a solution.
Now there are a few things that happen subconsciously before you get to the solution part:
- Because you’ve refused to accept the status quo of things (like missing the exam) your brain is then challenged to do something
- It goes into search mode, where it begins to look for solutions to the problem (missing an exam). Before you know it your brain would have found a solution.
There’s something unique & intriguing that happens when you challenge your brain to something. It immediately starts to look for answers. The brain does not limit us, we limit it.
The brain is like a memory chip filled with lots of memories, experiences & happenings. We may not be the ones that allowed certain things to permeate our minds but we have 100% control over everything that comes out of us.
If there’s anything I’d like for you to get from this blog it’s this, develop a habit of always challenging yourself to doing things out of your reach. By virtual of doing that you’ll be stretching your thinking capabilities. Your mind won’t be limited anymore it will start to search for answers and you’ll be amazed at what things you’re able to achieve as an individual.
