Have you heard the sad truth about frogs? If you put a frog in boiling water it will jump out but if you put him or her (let’s say him, who wants to put a lady in a pot) in cold water that is gradually heated it will not understand the danger and will thus (sadly) be boiled to death.
Sometimes, the same happens to us. The problem begins when we think that we think enough which we don’t. The way I see it, everyone’s brain has an autopilot system which is not bad. The only thing about it is that its too difficult to turn off. This system is called habit. When we like something we just do it and after a while it becomes a habit and it runs itself. You don’t feel that you need to think about it and feeling safe by the autopilot you start to sleep. And the only time the sleeping pilot wakes up is when? when the plane has crashed into a mountain!
Set the alarm clock before you fall asleep! If you train yourself to reconsider your habits regularly, it will work like an alarm clock and it will wake you up. You just need to find your alarm clock. A frank friend or a big mirror, it doesn’t matter. find something that wakes you up.
