What's going on between your ears?
The brains primary job is to save your life and up until now it’s been doing a pretty good job of it! The human brain is wired negatively, to see everything as a possible threat and danger in order to do its job and keep you safe! As humans have evolved our brains have also but what remains the same as our ancestors is our need for food, sleep and exercise this allows it to do it’s job. Our brains still see threats and life or death situations in the same way as it always has, through our emotions, through what we tell it. Running from a sabretooth tiger is seen as the same threat as seeing the dishes pilling up after punching on over this for weeks, unless we learn to control our emotions and tell it other wise.

Think ocean, ship and iceberg on this one. What is visible to the ship’s Captain is the small tip of the iceberg that sits above the water line, what the Captain doesn’t know is what is below the water and out sight, how can he possible know what is happening, what impact his orders will make and what will happen next?
Now think of yourself as the iceberg, those around you as the Captain and your world as the ocean.
People only ever see the tip and some of us don’t even understand ourselves what lies beneath the water line. Learning what lies beneath the surface for you will allow you to understand why you behave and react the way you do. This theory will also help you understand those around you better.
