It is never too late to learn new disciplines. A marathon cannot be run with a week of practice. It takes weeks or months. By training a few times per week. With discipline and fighting the resistance of not being disciplined.
Our brain is constantly trying to keep us away from what’s hard. Our brain doesn’t like difficult. It wants us to avoid pain and to live an easy life.
One part in us looks for growth and freedom, the other does everything to avoid the necessary steps to get there. The human being is the only creature that can fool the brain. We can force the brain to do something else than what it was designed for. We can choose to go beyond survival.
Start small, day by day. Start and build up. Fight the resistance and know, deep down that you can do it. Despite the brain trying to pull us back to the relative safety of the known.
