Learnt helplessness, Turbomind Poweridea #90
The doctor Martin Seligman found after much research with over 20.000 people that about 80 % people feel helpless in some area of their lives.
And the worst part is that they have learnt to be that way. They have taught them to be helpless.
It’s like the person trying to lose weight and who has tried 100 of different diets to come to the conclusion that he/she will never be able to lose weight and stay there.
This personal state is defined by the word: I can’t do it. I won’t be able to do it.
The opposite is to truly believe that is possible to change, to achieve what you want.
In what area of your life you might have learnt to be helpless?
How could you develop a strong conviction that even though is not easy, you will be able to achieve what you want?
I believe that with a 100% commitment almost anything is possible and achievable.
There is always a way to improve something. There is always room for improvement.
