We abdicate responsibility for our own lives, according to psychologist Joost Merloo, because we fear life?s built-in contradictions. Because we?re forced to live with doubt and inconsistency, and yet we desire certainty and absolutes, we often start to embrace convictions we don?t really believe. Because we can?t bear ambiguity, many of us simply conform and even join rigid-thinking organizations.

If you do not work to unearth your deepest purpose and write your Ultimate Mission; if you do not actually write your Old Story; if you do not find the courage to seek the truth and write your New Story; if you do not commit to writing your Training Mission and investing the energy to follow the rituals laid out there until they embed themselves into your life?then you will have failed.

Whether it?s the individual or the company instituting rituals to improve their story, it?s advisable not to make fifty major changes at once; minor change is difficult enough. It?s often helpful just to start by adopting one small ritual and sticking to it.

when you are pursuing your New Story and trying to fulfill your Training Mission, you want to be at the mercy of the training effect: This is where the power of your unconsciousness is delightfully beneficial, working for you. Thanks to the training effect, once you?ve finished an initial period of training, you?ll gradually be required to spend less and less of your conscious energy toward making that positive change.

when a conflict exists between our conscious and subconscious worlds, the advantage clearly goes to the subconscious, precisely because the influencing factor is beyond our conscious knowledge of its being there. We often have no clue that there?s distortion going on.

once we acknowledge the extent to which our behavior is governed by subconscious forces, how daunting?how futile!?is it to exercise full responsibility (whatever that means) for our life when but a paltry 5% of that life is really under our control?

Every story we tell has some effect. Stories move the needle every time we tell them. Because of this powerful ?story effect,? it?s imperative that the story you tell be a constructive, and not destructive, one: The effect of training makes it hard to break the bonds that form.
