Anything’s Easy With Proper Planning
I know, sounds like one of those catch-22’s. But consider this. All humans come preprogrammed with certain desires, that drive our instincts. Most of these instincts are shut off unless they are in the presence of our corresponding desires.
Once something is present that can satisfy one of these desires, we feel an almost uncontrollable urge to take certain action, based on our environment, in order to satisfy that particular desire.
Consider food. I’m sure you’ve had the experience if not being hungry, and then suddenly you smell something really good. Then all you can think about is food. If you are near the food, and it’s available, it’s nearly impossible to not eat it.
Like maybe you’re going to a party, and you don’t really feel like eating anything. But when you get there, there’s a MASSIVE spread of good stuff. Then you simply can’t help yourself.
Sure, you may tell yourself some stories like, “I don’t want to be rude,” or “Well, since they went to the trouble,” or, “I just felt like eating.”
But in reality, your inner caveman saw and opportunity to eat, and took over.
Same goes with seeing attractive girls or any other “trigger” that jump starts out caveman brain.
If you ONLY go by your caveman brain, you may get lucky, you may not.
Only if you take the time to decide what you want, and plan your life accordingly, do you have any hope of escaping the “I hope I get lucky” trap.
For example, let’s say you wanted to lose weight. So you bought a couple diet books. You decided to ditch all your food at home that didn’t fit your new diet plan. Then you carefully went shopping for only the foods that would support your new diet. And you avoided restaurants and fast food places as much as you could.
This, of course, would make it a lot easier to lose weight, or get in shape.
Most people realize this. And they realize it would take time. Plenty of time.
But for some reason, when we think of relationships, we expect it to “just happen.”
We don’t plan what kind of relationship we want, or the type of person we want it with, or where we might meet them.
We just show up and hope for the best.
That would be like going to McDonalds, ordering a couple of super size Big Mac packs, and hoping you might get lucky and get that six pack.
Take some time. Choose the kind of girl you’d like. Figure out how you’ll know her when you see her.
And go talk to her. Keep this up, and pretty soon you’ll have a nice relationship.
