Training is learning, and learning is change. When attending a training session, changes in skills, attitude or behaviour are expected from us.
Easier said than done, because our own brain is the first opponent to any change we might want to make. The brain loves the status quo, or the state of comfort it has reached up to this age. Change, i.e. something new, however small or insignificant, is perceived subconsciously as a threat. Hence, we find ourselves finding all sorts of reasons for which the change will not work.
We learn a new idea or concept in a training session, we first think it might help us, then we hear ourselves finding reasons why it might not work or why it does not apply to our case. The real “thinker” in these cases is our brain, finding excuses to remain in its current state of comfort.
