I will give some examples to illustrate my point:
When you were growing up was it always a panic to get ready and out the door in the morning?
Was it a common occurrence to go through the dirty clothes basket looking for a specific item of clothing?
Was the dining table always full of papers so that actually sitting down to eat dinner there rarely happened?
Were you hesitant to have friends over because your house let you down?
There are of course many other scenarios that may come to mind about what has become learned behaviour for you. We usually gravitate to what we know. What we know is not always the best option but it's in our comfort zone. Do you find yourself repeating history in your own life now?
And so I challenge you today - ponder over what learned behaviours you exhibit and whether or not they are to your advantage. You may also want to consider whether they are to your family's advantage.
What learned behaviours are you passing on to your children?
If you find there are some that you are not a fan of then what? Re-educate yourself. It's that simple. Not simple in a patronizing way but simple in the sense that it's more dependent on consistency from you - that will determine your success. Decide and do it. Small steps. Tackle one thing at a time but when you do, be consistent.
