How Things Work系列短片：看見人生「 所有行為背後的動機如何運作」 的運作實情
It's important to understand how the motivational mechanism works.
This is how it works.
There are no exceptions to this. Not any of you are in exceptions to this.
This is just built into you. It's part of your being, as a physical mind:
You always, instantly, immediately, without fail, with-out fail, always choose in the direction of what you believe benefits you. Always! There is no exception to this.
You will always choose what you believe benefits you. You will always move away from what you believe does not benefit you.
Notice the operative word is “what you believe”.
Because you may be able to choose what doesn't benefit you,
but the only reason you would realize you're doing that, is because you have a belief that makes it look like it benefits you more than the alternative.
Once you understand that, then you can realize that any so-called “habit”, any so-called “pattern” is nothing more than the recognition that you have a particular definitional belief attached to your motivational mechanism.
With respect to who it is you truly are that is somehow diminishing your perception of Who You Truly Are,
and making it seem as if moving in the direction of your truth would actually be the least beneficial thing.
So when you figure out what the definition would have to be, to make your excitement seem less than exciting, to make what doesn't excite you seem more exciting than your excitement,
then you will have the key that allows you to then switch those things on the motivational mechanism.
Because once you realize, once you identify what the negative belief is that is dampening your excitement,
you will see that it makes no sense. It's illogical.
You will break the link that that belief has, to your truth, to your excitement, to your passion,
because it will no longer make sense to connect that belief to the idea of your passion.
You will realize that it's probably just a fear-based belief
…So, when you get a handle on understanding that that's all you need to do is find that definition that makes your excitement seem less safe than where you are staying. And see that it makes no sense by identifying that belief consciously, then it will flip
Your motivational mechanism will flip.
Because as soon as a belief makes no sense, it's gone.
