Last post I talked about the “invisible fences” that keep us from taking the kind of action we want to take (and getting the results we want to get).
And I used the example of a little dog that was stuck behind an invisible fence.
Today, I have more inspiring story in the same theme…
You see, one of my friends shelled out some good $$$ to have an invisible fence installed on his property.
But just a few days after it was installed, he found his beloved poochie running around the neighbourhood, free as a bird.
This dog refused to be held back by the invisible fence.
You know what the dog would do?
He just ran at the fence all day long, until the batteries ran out.
Then he was free.
Turns out, this dog wasn’t that deterred by a little bit of pain from his electric collar.
In order to work, the invisible fence counts on a universal feature of psychology.
Organisms are wired to avoid pain. If you make something consistently uncomfortable, most animals (and humans) will just give up.
They stop trying.
They want to stay in their comfort zone.
But, if you’re one of the few who can push through the discomfort, you find freedom, success and victory on the other side.
I love pushing guys outside of their comfort zone, because I know how awesome it is on the other side. Freedom. Confidence. Success. Choice.
