We have been conditioned by systems from the time we ere little until now.? For many of us, The conditioning is no longer working.

Summary

Today, I thought I would talk with you about breaking some of the conditioning that you received from the time that you were young until now . That may not be serving you as well as you think it is. As a matter of fact, it is so conditioned that you probably haven't thought about it in years. I will speak for myself and say I remember being a young boy brought to school but my mom and on the 1st day of school, kindergarten, the Bronx, New York, I was brought to my chair but my mom, sat down there and introduced to my teacher and they both looked down and smiled at me because I was little!

As they looked at me, I remember the adoring smiles and my mom telling me that you be back from the layer and to do my teacher said, as time progressed, I grew to understand what the real message was.

"Shut up. Do what you are told. Regurgitate a bunch of stuff. Do we tell you to do… Or else." School extended way past kindergarten obviously and by the time I was in preschool that message had been drilled into me with the extra threat of "or else you will get into a good college."

Then, it progressed while I was in college to, "Shut up. Do what you're told. Regurgitate a bunch of stuff will be tell you to do it. Or else you will get a good job."

Or else, once you get the job, will fire you.

Eventually, for most people in the United States, perhaps in your country as well, the message gets so drilled into us that will be do get fired, we wonder, "what happened? I did the right thing. I did what I was told."

We don't quite think of it in those words but the shock is overwhelming because we followed the system. The system really isn't there to help you. It's a framework for business you have been conditioned from the time you are in kindergarten until now to conform to what your boss tells you to do.

How's that working for you? How do you like that trade for dollars for compliance? If you don't like it, maybe the idea is to break out and do something a little bit different.

I'm not to tell you what that might be; we may talk about some things over the course of the next few months or a few years as I do the show.

I want to encourage you that if anything I've said up until this point resonates for you, if you like to explore some different alternatives, email me at JeffAltman@TheBigGameHunter.us and in the subject line, put the word "Coaching."

Tell me that you listen to the show and that you want to schedule a 1st introductory conversation with me where we can explore the idea of coaching.
