Imagine if you were in Mother Nature’s shoes way back when She made us.
Since we were going to be the “smartest” of the primates, She had to think long and hard.
She probably contemplated giving us TOTAL free will, and giving a list of “best practices.”
When she finished laughing, she decided it might be better to give us a combination of free will and these internal programs that would FORCE us to do the things we needed to survive.
Things that we would do without needing to think.
Like run away from tigers, eat stuff when we were hungry, and sleep when we were tired.
We’ve all had to battle these instincts.
Many of us are afraid of things we wish we weren’t afraid of.
Many of us eat things we wish we didn’t want to.
But consider how it would be otherwise.
How difficult it would be if we had to remember to be scared, or remember to eat, or drink, or sleep.
Just without getting tired, many of us would NEVER sleep.
But then we’d be dead in a few days or weeks.
Luckily, we DO have all of these instincts that keep us alive and safe and within our strict range of operating conditions.
However, many of these instincts aren’t working so well.
At least not as well as they used to.
Imagine if you could re-calibrate your hunger.
So carrots, broccoli and boiled chicken breasts tasted absolutely delicious.
And junk food or anything with sugar tasted like crap.
Losing weight would be easy.
Unfortunately, that’s not possible.
What IS possible is to recalibrate our social instincts.
Because what FEELS GOOD to our social instincts is actually WAY healthier than the social “signals” we seek today.
Most of these are very fake, and very shallow.
Kind of like sugar.
Feels good for a little bit, but then you feel like crap later on.
When you feed your social instincts HEALTHY food, it will feel much better.
So much it will naturally shun all that fake shallow stuff that runs people’s lives.
In that regard, it’s much EASIER to re-calibrate than hunger.
Once you do, you’ll notice a HUGE difference.
