i was listening to anthony robbins tapes for last few weeks while driving to work. great guy lots of good stuff!!!
but one thing stood out from his tapes.
he mentiones an emotional threshold- the amount of pain you would endure before changind yourself.
he said some people have high tolerance for pain and some are low
i consider myself having a very high tolerance to emotional pain because,
i still havent found a strong enough emotion that would move me enough to change.
i have a thick skull id say and its not something im very happy about in this particular situation.
i ve been going up and down hill pretty often trying to improve my situation.
and made same mistakes over and over. which whould mean one thing_im stupid and dont learn, according to a popular belief.
i didnt develop this deffence because of a good and joyfull life, it was mostly to survive constant attempts of my parents to make me a "better child" the one that obeys and does what he supposed to.
i was pretty neutral to any emotions for a while.
so anyway on the topic of emotional threshold.
how do i change that. how do i make myself more open to change?
because i really dont want to wait for something tragic or disastrous to happen in my life in orger to shake me up and bring different values in my personality by means od something bad.
