After training courses, only 20% of people actually apply anything of what they’ve learnt and they remember around 5% of it after 30 days. Why is it so hard to remember? Because we are all habit machines. Habits save us energy, because they don’t consume much brain power. Some habits are useful, keeping us safe or saving us time. But habits can be really limiting, stopping us experiencing new things. Preventing us from realising our full potential:
- Most of us only use 1/10 of our personality. 90% is waiting to be unlocked.
- On average, people only use 22% of their potential behaviours.
- The brain is 2% of our body weight but uses 20% of our energy resources. No wonder we are drawn to habits to conserve brain power.
By getting out of your comfort zone, trying new behaviours, experiencing something new, you have more choice over how you react to different situations. You’ll find it easier to cope with what life throws at you. Which leaves you less stressed, more effective and up for almost anything.
A word of advice…if you want to get the most out of this program, treat it as the fight club…rule #1…don’t tell anyone that you are doing it. Let people be surprised by your actions, make it as real as possible. The goal is not to tick the boxes and power through the quest, but to enjoy the ride, get to know yourself and unlock the amazing potential you have!
