EPISODE 53: “How Your Brain Sabotages Your Goals”

by Jim Fortin

How many times have you set goals for yourself only to find that you’re right back into your old patterns and you never achieve what you think that you want?

If you’re like most people, that is your exact pattern: Wanting a goal but not achieving it because you can’t shake loose of your old patterns and habits.

In the first sentence I said, “What you think that you want.” What you think that you want is not what you get because you get your habits and they don’t come from the “thinking” part of your brain.

In this episode I talk about:

  • The three largest parts of your brain and how they function
  • How your reptilian brain sabotages your goals
  • Why your reptilian brain operates from survival and predictability
  • Why what you think you want is usually not what you get
  • And how to dissociate from the reptilian brain habits

I have created episodes on habits but this one dives deeper into the exact way the reptilian brain sabotages your goals and what you think that you want.

Transformational Takeaway

Your goals come from your prefrontal cortex “thinking” brain and your habits come from your reptilian brain. They battle each other and you have to disassociate from your reptilian brain habits.
