"One that Helen Keller had, too. It does sneak in. It does show up in certain places. It's really hard. She bumped into it as she began to build her new life in Seattle. It could come up when she was job hunting, or when she was inviting a new love interest over to her apartment for a home cooked meal. She said that voice can blur in the kitchen with me and tell me that I'm not good at cooking and every time that voice comes up. She's to choose to ignore it. I'm still working through it. It's the.

"I was horrified. I actually had one of those moments where your blood kind of runs cold. And it was shortly after reading that that the whole TikTok conspiracy theory bubbled up into her world. And so she found herself newly resistant to defend Helen Keller. I see. But also wanting to call out the TikTokers for saying things that were not true, and so she came to us authentically lost. Wanting to use reporting to figure out both how to feel about Helen Keller in her own heart. But also to just legitimately understand how Helen Keller came to want to remove disability from.

"Elsa says that the ghost of Helen Keller has messed with her life in such tangible, real ways that it's affected how her life has played out. And she's come to see that it's not just her life, but all of our lives. Our brains that are haunted by Helen Keller in a pretty surprising and insidious way. So allow me to just take you back to where the haunting all began for Elsa. Yeah. Okay, so we're going, we're going to the mid 90s Seattle, nirvana's on the air. Elsa, little Elsa is on the she's on the floor in her third grade classroom. Sitting next to her classmates. I had giant Coke bottle glasses, like the 1990s were not kind to low vision children. And her teacher pulls out a picture book about Helen Keller. I distinctly remember seeing the illustration that sort of everybody sees, which is where she's standing there with her hand underneath the faucet that the pump, signing the word water into any Sullivan's hand and like, I just sort of remember being like, well, I know I can't see and I can't really hear that well, but this isn't me. She said she knew, of course, that she had some trouble seeing. I ran into things a lot. And some trouble hearing, which became particularly apparent during verbal spelling tests. The words that I was hearing my classmates say weren't the words that I was supposed to be writing down. Oh, so like they'd say fly and you'd spell sigh or something. Yeah. But whenever someone would compare her to Helen Keller, which she said happened a lot. It was always, but I'm not like that. And I think that's because I was always told, like, but you're not really blind, but you're not really. Like, Elsa says her family had always told her that there was nothing really different about her. You know, your glasses are just a little thicker than other kids. The hearing aids were just, you know, to help me a little bit. And so I consistently would try things that were probably not a good idea, but things like downhill skiing. Horseback riding. Oh, you're moving. Or, oh, I'm looking at the screen. You've got an awesome sword. Yeah, this is an early 20th century German dress sword. That's so cool. I have been fencing since I was 9. How does how does that work? Wouldn't it be scary if you can't really see the swords and things? Fencing is actually not about seeing a sword. You're dealing with the fact that you actually can feel tension in somebody else's blade. I see. Okay. Yeah, so anyway, Elsa is a kid was doing all this really rad stuff, including the everyday adventures that any kid has in childhood like. Climbing trees. There was this one tree in Ravenna park in Seattle. It's enormous. Because of how big this tree was, a lot of light didn't filter through, so it was kind of a dark Heidi place. And I remember being able to sort of use one spot to kind of lift myself up. She knew this tree really well and knew every branch. There was sort of a sloping tree bit. And she would just go higher. And I remember it was a lot of lighting and higher, more like whole body contact with the tree. And eventually I could get all the way up to the top of the tree. How did you feel there? I felt safe there. So I felt like an escape. So one day I was up in the tree and then the sky opened. There was a huge rainstorm. The tree had changed the environment of the tree had changed. What if I slept and now I can't figure out how to grab onto a different spot? And it was kind of like, well, how do I get down safely? And suddenly she got lost. But the texture of the tree had changed, and everything about how I interact with my space is about texture. She did feel like she knew the world, but then you add rain, and then she suddenly lost in this tree. She knows so well. I literally couldn't get out of the tree. There were things that I definitely didn't know the limits of until they sort of smacked me in the face. She said her childhood was scattered with moments like these. Moments, no one else could really relate to. Moments where she wished there was someone who got it. And she said this sense of frustration and loneliness with those frustrations really came to a head when her family moved to New York City. When she was in the 9th grade. In Seattle, my family drove with me to school. Right in the or if I was getting up every morning at 6 45 and getting on the subway. I would just stare at the ground. 'cause otherwise I would trip and fall. And so one morning, it's taking forever for her to get to school. Like with stairs, I would stop at each step and shuffle my feet out and then I would take a step down. And she arrives late to her classroom. My English teacher stopped me at the door and she was like, Elsa, I'd like to talk to you for a second about your classmates essay. He wrote his essay about you and how he admires you and I would like him to read it out loud in front of the class this morning. And I was like, what? She says okay. Goes and takes her seat. And he stands up in front of her class and reads his essay in the first line of the essay as I admire Elsa because she's like Helen Keller. And I just wanted to like think several thousand feet below the surface of the earth. Why? I mean, I think I would have been embarrassed, like, why are you making a big deal of me doing things that everybody else does? Like everybody else goes on the subway. Everybody else goes up and down the stairs at school. And why do you admire me for doing them? Did you again have the and I'm nothing like her? Was there also that part of it? He's wrong. I think it was even more like, oh, maybe I am a little bit like her. Like, I think it might have been the first time I started to realize that there could be something. And for Elsa that thought was terrifying. Because when she thought about what became of Helen Keller as an adult, she lived with a her teacher and her teacher's husband. Because I just supposed to live with my parents and my grandparents, like what was I supposed to do? The images Elsa had of Helen Keller's adult life. Painted a kind of nightmare for her. There was Helen Keller wearing pearls and smiling. Holding a flower. There she was holding a book. There she was. Holding hands Sullivan's hand, sitting on Anne Sullivan's lap. As the grown-up slowly growing grayer and grayer. It seems through the photos. Her smile, getting wider and wider. She just becomes more and more of this very like, stayed artifact. Would you want to be compared to somebody who's entire.

"Helen would go on to co found in organization called helen. Keller international who had the aim of working to combat the causes of blindness and she co founded this with george kessler. The renowned city planner. Mike what in one thousand nine hundred twenty. Helen would also create the amazingly incredible american civil liberties union. The aclu and that next year the american federation for the blind was founded as well. I just wanted to stop here in. Just say i don't know how i didn't know this high had no idea than helen. Keller was one of the individuals who helped to found the aclu. I mean that's such an incredible organization even today. Just really incredible stuff. The american federation for the blind was founded that next year. And mrs where. Helen would focus for support creating campaigns for awareness and to raise financial support for those living with blindness. It was during this time that helen's popularity began to weaken due to her associations with the less than popular socialism with this didn't stop her momentum entirely in nineteen forty six. Helen was named the counselor of international relations for the american foundation of overseas blind and traveled all over the world sharing her story a decade later. Helen would begin a groundbreaking trek across asia lecturing and educating on blindness. And how to better support special needs individuals in society. It should be noted that helena was seventy five one. She began her trip in nineteen sixty five. Helen would be appointed to the women's hall of fame along with several other distinguish awards including the presidential medal of freedom as well as the theodore. Roosevelt distinguished service medal after many years. Lecturing and traveling. Helen would settle down in her home in connecticut. After suffering health issues for a number of years. Helen keller passed away in her sleep on june. First nineteen sixty eight at the age of eighty seven now first of all. I had no idea that she passed away in sixty eight. That just doesn't seem as far off. In the past. As i thought it was when i think about helen. Keller but this story to me is one of the most incredible amazing stories. Because whenever i tell these stories usually individuals are dealing with societal or cultural obstacles which either delay or hinder them. But having to of your physical senses unusable in continuing on to live such an extraordinary life mean just writing books going to college like really being exemplary individual pursuing all of your interests all of your passions not even allowing your circumstances to dictate how you move forward. I mean i love. This story also loved it because it was a very real depiction of someone who's angry at life in the beginning of her life where she was throwing all these tantrums and she was always very angry and disrespectful to her family and her parents. I mean number one. She was a child who didn't even have the ability to absorb the education that she really needed at that point in her life. Because it just wasn't there and number two. She was blind and death. She couldn't communicate. She lived in a world she absolutely could not understand just as a child not even somebody who was blind and deaf to look at that and then look at how far she came from that point. I mean it's so impressive. It is so encouraging for me personally. It's just so inspiring that she didn't allow her rage to consume her. Because nobody would have blamed her for that but she didn't. She allowed it to fuel her and take her to heights. That people with all of their senses couldn't reach just pure determination and grit and on top of all of this. She also dedicated her life to fighting for those with special needs along with social activist causes. Like how does she even have the ban with like.

The doctor recommended that helen visit an expert named alexander. Graham bell yes. The man who invented the telephone also worked with deaf children to help fine educational solutions another time. Line cross. that leaves me speechless. Like who knew that all these people existed at the same time. Maybe i just didn't understand exactly growing up and learning it in school but now just like what. I would have been so much more interested in history if i would've known. These individuals like interacted with each other. Alexander recommended that. Helen traveled to the perkins institute for the blind located in boston massachusetts.

"Hey there be one. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable. Thank you so much for joining me for another wonderful episode of made of metal. I hope everyone enjoyed last week's episode of exploring the duality of man. And i wanted to continue on that theme especially in terms of understanding that the decisions we make are what defines us outside of anything else so this week we'll be covering an individual who experienced a personal injury due to illness that most would have considered catastrophic in life ending especially during a time when there was little to no resources available to cope with that loss. This wasn't a loss of a person but of their own individual senses in thus a good chunk of their personal independence having to navigate a world. That just wasn't equipped for their needs plus having to forge a completely new path toward understanding how to work with people such as themselves. This individual also went on to fight for several noble causes all geared toward establishing basic freedoms and rights for the unseen in society. And may were able to do this as they were. Well acquainted with the marginalization of their own group. I truly love stories like these for their ability to depict this strength and resilience that lives within us all. In spite of whatever circumstances life throws at us plus as you all know. I am such a huge fan of stories involving strong women. Truly lights my fire so this week.

"We don't know much about helen. Morgan and her life before she might lee. A lot of the record comes from helen. Herself when larry rennie. Thomas interviewed her about her life. In february of nineteen ninety six but according to helen from the beginning she always felt she had to fight for what she wanted. She was born helen. More in nineteen twenty six on a small farm near shallow north carolina. she never liked the rural lay. She hated the endless chores of the farm. When she was big enough she would leave the farm and go off on her own but from an early age. Helen learned that things don't always work out as planned in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. When helen was only thirteen years old she had her first child. Another arrived the next year. It's unclear what circumstances helen had her children under. But it's likely that she suffered from some form of coercion and was possibly even forced into a relationship before. I continue with her psychology. Please note. I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but i have done a lot of research for the show. According to the human rights organization equality now girls. Who married at a young age are more likely to develop symptoms related to post traumatic stress disorder and depression. Allen wasn't married but at thirteen. She was a mother. It's possible she was expected to take on the role of an adult woman as well in another study conducted in two thousand eleven researchers found that girls married before. Eighteen have a higher risk of developing anxiety and even bipolar disorder. These girls are also at risk of having substance abuse problems later in life at thirteen..

She took me to to meet him on the nights that he was making a speech from his soapbox in manhattan that was where i was exposed to the young communists the young communist league the white seal the youth branch of the american communist party. Nobody recruited helen. She just walked up and volunteered in the thirties. The young communist league of america has thousands of members the y. c. l. branch in new york was a world unto itself filled with ideas and ashen. They were people going hungry. All over the united states an ongoing moral catastrophe in the american south of vicious war in spain against fascism not to mention him as rise in germany americans were looking for answers and many found them. In the world's biggest communist empire the soviet union i found it on their unfairness of life unbearable and assume that god if it were fixable how wonderful and the fact that was country the soviet union which was really trying to fix. It seemed quite mar with jimmy. First time i stepped on soviet soil. I felt myself a fool. Human being a full human being the black american actor and singer paul robeson then at the height of his fame made a pilgrimage to the mecca of communism and said for the first time in my life.

My whole life has been that way. It's always been somebody else. Bill do something you know. I did it and i always did much more batman's asked me. That was story of my life while i was listening to helen. Levitt story of how she came to join the communist party. I couldn't help think of myself at eighteen. The age that she was when she entered the movement just started college. It was the early eighties. I had a poster of ronald reagan on my wall. If you asked me what. I was back then i would have said i was an anticommunist. That was my 'cause. The soviet union had just invaded afghanistan defender and the russian attackers fought bitterly for almost four hours and according to the afghan source casualties on both sides were heavy. It was holding much of eastern europe hostage. Poland now under martial law is sealed off from the outside world britain america and other western nations are watching. The soviet union apparently wasn't involved but from the background. They approved the summer after my sophomore year. I did a journalism internship in washington dc where we were required to do a research project. Mine was on how many people have been killed by communism. I spent the summer in the library of congress trying to track down who was killed in what government manufactured famine or who died in what internment camp. I was horrified. Helen levitt got caught up in the communist movement at the same age. I got caught up in the anticommunist movement and for the same reason because eighteen is the age that we look for a cause bigger than ourselves. It's funny. I haven't thought about that time in my life for yours. Except when i listened to helen levitt and did all came rushing back the brightest and most beautiful were leading young radicals.

"Convictions. Cool she's released from prison. She promises that she will not hold anymore seances. And then she immediately goes back to scotland and begins holding seances but she moved back to scotland and decided to to basically keep it on the down low and be a bit quieter. These are small seances in her home now giant packed halls and she's no longer releasing state secrets in one thousand nine fifty. Six police raided her while she was in the middle of a science one evening because now of course the fraudulent medium act has been established. And she's really truly not supposed to be doing this and she said that she was in a very very deep trout senate and it took her out it. she's very upset and throughout the rest of the day. She keeps complaining that she's really not feeling well and that evening she died. What yep of what. Her followers of course blamed the police raid. Yeah but also eulogized her. The people that fully taryn liked said to the the spirits decided to keep her for their own while she was in a trance. Thought it was very nice The general medical opinion now is that she was in very poor health and just it was bad timing and she just happened to die that evening but either way. That's the end of helen. Duncan wow or is it. She's a medium of course right if anyone's gonna come back. Yeah it should be held in dunkin and she did make a brief appearance. At a seance in the uk in one thousand nine hundred eighty three and i mean a very brief appearance. She appeared to wish happy birthday to another spirit. A nine year old boy who was celebrating his birthday from the other side with his brother's family and various other well wishers. Okay and helen dropped by mainly to encourage all the living attendees to remember folks who are alone on their birthdays. And it would help to papa card through the door of those that we know are alone. Oh we have audio of this to wait. What.

"Rim. Probably that fact so obviously with this many relatives in the know and possibly searching for closure with their dead relatives how helen dunkin got this. Information is not particularly hard to guess. Unfortunately for helen. There were several police officers in the audience. A reported this. This wasn't her first of spilling military secrets in edinburgh had reported another sinking ship. And at that point. Admiral was in the audience and he had not heard anything about this so he calls in to see. It is true that this ship sink. Is there anything and he was told. No there's been nothing reported by the official navy switchboard and then the next morning he gets a call at the. Hms hood had been sunk by the bismarck but it had not yet even been reported to the navy at the point that helen makes this announcement. Wow yeah that one hard to explain. Yeah pretty disconcerting. Right again we have to rethink. What if she is actually doing something here. She is communicating with the dead or. She is psychic or she does have access to some things that is giving her some of this information and then as everyone else ups their showmanship hers and so she's a real medium pretending to be a fake medium. It's a really weird turn of events oversee this then go back to the authorities again and this made her quite a prominent character. They were keeping an eye on because if she was able to do this. And reveal those military secrets to a roomful of people. Then that was obviously quite a problem. If she keeps doing this she could blow the whole operation for the end of world war. Two and the closer we get to d day. The more of us real security threat. She begins to look like because she keeps dropping these bombshell announcements months before they're supposed to be made public. Gosh and this is why. She is tried for witchcraft. There's nothing else they can charge her with seek. You can't charge her with espionage has they can't prove it they can't prove it and they don't want anyone to know that what she's saying is true if they say she's committing espionage. They have to admit that the things she is saying actually happened. And those are state secrets. That's awesome so. She was arrested in portsmouth and charged with vagrancy. 'cause they didn't know what else to charge her for and then she was taken to london. And that's where she was put on trial for rant about a month or say the only evidence that they could provide. Because how do you prove if one is talking to the data not was physical evidence so they bring in some of the plaza him. This is just cheesecloth. We can prove it and they have. The hat banned from sids hat. Low the band which was bought from the event of the sinking of the h mess. Barroom which was what the ghost was wearing the time somebody had managed to secure that from the evening and this kind of doctor in really and got her in trouble because she don't even look to the fact that at that time uniforms had changed because such a quick turnaround and they were putting so many troops out so quickly that the production of uniform was completely different as to how it used to be so it used to be that happened will be printed with the name of the ship but it wasn't anymore so that that this hat cannot be from the ghost of said who drowned on the. Ats barham wow. It proves that she is a fraud. Now she's a second to think about what i just said right. If you prove she's a fraud she's not a witch exactly see is on trial for witchcraft. And the evidence produced to convict her is proof that is not practicing witchcraft. Yeah what it proves. I think definitively that everyone involved knows what she's actually on trial for. This isn't about witchcraft. This is about shutting her up and it worked all. She was convicted of witchcraft. Eventually okay the trial dragged on and on and on part of that is because there is a slight distraction. Going on in london bombs were falling at the time. And you can't stay in court at the old bailey when you're getting bombed. They have to adjourn the trial. Flee to the bomb shelters add reschedule. Day she was eventually found guilty and sent to holloway prison. For nine months later would have fared in under the seventeenth censuring her life in front of a massive crowd. But i think the reason that they probably charged at the time inside was reasonable so it was enough to teach a lesson to make sure that she didn't do it again but it was also a low enough charge to not put her away for years and years which something like theft. She could have been away for three years but is only nine months. Okay this case is the national sensation. Of course i i one is talking about it even churchill. You think that he would be busy during the bull but apparently he also made a statement on it and he said the case was absolute tomfoolery and a complete waste of resources which i am inclined to agree and she is the very last person in the uk ever to be convicted much craft. That's amazing are those on the books. Like could you still arrest. The good news is thanks to helen. And largely as a result of this trial and the absolute tomfoolery. The witchcraft act was finally abolished in nineteen fifty one and the fraudulent medium. Act put in its place so congratulations. Uk listeners are safe from witchcraft.

Think pets may be how he got it anyway. But i'm at peace with it because he would ahead such terrible road if he had made it through and <hes>. Som- glad god is that you've been around death for for a long time or at certain moments. Is it any easier for you to mourn someone or accept death. Now that you've seen it and seen it in such a public way <hes>. But also in a private way with your own family while private of course is if flesh and blood your heart is soul you know and it mother father sister brother used to set the table for five and now it's me and it's very it's kind of in a way.

Each probably like about eight and just trying to see how this always impacting his life and at one point the interview the kid said i'm too young to understand this. Well i'm eighty one. And i'm too young to understand this. This huge mystery is that we all die in. I've seen so many die. There's a part of me. I can go through the whole ritual of it but to take it in and that i'm gonna die. That's what impossible everybody dies but me.

The desire is stunned in a way and then comes back and you go. It's a new day. It just from being alive as a human being existential way of putting it is. The truth is i'm alive and i wanna live. I wanna live authentically. And i wanna live to the fall. And that's that's to me is what it leaves me with his. This mandate to live and to live fully.

"helen u._s._o" Discussed on Become Your Own Best Friend Podcast
"Why do we have the best intentions and then not for through on them. Essentially why we procrastinating this has come up for me taking taking over the last weeks at last couple of weeks so i thought it would be a good time to share my journey and the lessons i learnt throughout that this situation in both me procrastinate for a number of weeks on something that i could have done very simply. Let me explain. I save clients face to face at a pilates cheery in south melbourne and they're running a spring challenge because it's just gone on spring a few days who garden and they said to me. Would i like to put some of my brushes in sri bags that they were giving to the clients for all this brain challenge and i thought excellent that's great so they asked me two weeks ago about getting the purchase organized and i hadn't i needed needed to create them from scratch <hes> to make sure it was contextualized full days clients and i remember going onto mm to vistaprint and a few other websites and having a little bit of a look at some brushes and then all of a sudden thought to hunt boskin all set this aside and hopefully it magically against done now of course i left it and left it and then go to message sage two weeks later thing. Have you got the brushes ready. We wanna pack them tomorrow and straightaway of just thought all nor what have i done had two weeks to get this done. A could've easily had it sorted wakes and of left at right up until the last minute. They wanted the next morning <hes> on the wednesday. I take all day on a wednesday and in the evening as well so i had no time i'm on wednesday so i had to wake up thursday morning before work and jump onto a software program i'm cody campbell and create at my own version and then cooled off this works and they said that they would put them on the spot etc so eventually. I sorted allen's <hes> but i'm really wanted to bring this up on the point. Caution have talk about it is because there was so many months issues around that the issue wasn't you know leaving something until the last minute it was the mindset around it and and <hes> hopefully as things can help you out because i'm sure with all done this before left something until the last minute but does all ways a raisin and this is what i say to my clients and whenever i'm trying to help people understand others more effectively we all have a raise raise them behind why we do certain things and i spoke about this previous episode about understanding other people in insane other the people's point of view and the reason why we do things is because we have an underlying belief. Oh mindsets about that end. You may may not understand why doing things that they are and you're probably doing them as well. Sofa sofa made that was three lessons that stand out with this particular situation number one was recognizing when you self sabotage him and this was a classic example. I just let myself procrastinate because i was trying to hold myself back or hold myself small because i knew that if i potentially if i got the versions out to everyone than i would have you know more clients except trump fear i guess was <hes> coming up and that sort of maybe self sabotage so when you you think about if you'll procrastinating on a certain thing and you're not getting it done just have to think about is a fiat and are you trying to hold yourself back on purpose. So is there a little bit of self sabotage at carrying the next lesson island was take time is never the issue. It's the story telling yourself about time for me. I made up a whole story that hundred a time to get these brushes down. It's going to take too long. It's a lot of effort to do <hes> so i'll just leave it until i get time now. Now of course what happened was when i had to do it. I got it done. I woke up a full work. I had out work all sorted on a program within. I would say probably forty five minutes and then by the time i made the coles <hes> to say about getting them printed olaf. It took me about about an hour and then simply going to the store to get it printed. Was maybe another twenty minutes. So all of a sudden something that i conceived in my mind was going to take me a really long time and a lot of effort actually took me an hour and twenty minutes wish i could have easily found wake cigar and i definitely do have an hour and twenty minutes on certainly not that busy where i do not have the time time again it was. I just found it so fascinating. Now looking back on that situation was i. I couldn't believe how much i kept telling myself at the time time. I don't have time to do this. It's going to take too long. It's going to be too much effort and then yeah when to wake up and just get it. Donna just didn't i didn't have a story about that. I just have to get this done and it's amazing. When we over sudden do have that pressure that we can actually get it done so that was another. One of my lessons is learning that time is not the issue. It's the story worry with helen u._s._o. About how much time we have along with that story is all the mental drama that we have the balance that we realize afterwards that there is actually no drama. It's just open created a now hedge so question. I like to oss myself which i i should have asked myself at the time but i didn't now looking back. That would have been great. Question is what this look like. If it were easy so when i got us to do those brochures and realize i didn't have anything for that those specific clients. I should've asked myself self the question okay. I need to get this done. What would it look like if it were easy and then i could have said to myself okay of the program. I've got some artwork. <hes> i know what i want to say. Excellent august block an hour out in my calendar and play around with it too much because we is something like a creative thing like that you can get so busy procrastinating on all the busy stuff that doesn't actually get you anywhere so changing phones and pictures and all that sort of thing where we feel like what being productive but not really it's just a very <hes> tricky way for our brain's <unk> catches out on not <hes> so back to that question. What would it look away easy. If i have got myself into that and then i could've gone and created that on the program credit into a p._d._f. Gone and got it printed that would have removed all the mental drama in my ahead and also lead time issue so if you guys if you're having any situations like this which i know some of you will be is just simply getting rid of the drama in your head and getting rid of the time issue because you not. It's yes that that's not the issue at all and just asking yourself. Will what would this be locked away easy. You know we always try and make things a lot harder than what we actually are and then of course if they had what do we do put them in the two hot <unk> set it aside for later but in the meantime we stress about got it that whole time just like i was the two full weeks. I was thinking about every day. I just go get braces on owner. It's too hot <unk> tomorrow and so it's it's like i've been living not stress for two weeks. When if i had the way i wouldn't have had that problem so when you're in situations like that it's just recognizing. What story are you talking about yourself. Particularly about time f fits <hes> when it comes to getting things done and also a new belief that i have started to adopt which is so far in working really well is is on the kind of person he gets things done at the first opportunity imagine saying that to yourself on the kana pass in get things done at the first opportunity and this could be anything. Does anyone procrastinate on during the dishes the laundry three. I don't know what other chores are there. Where you procrastinate on matinee feature said to yourself well. I am the contests and get things things done at the first opportunity and then you just do it and remove the mental drama and then all of a sudden what stopped is you stressing about it afterwards that you haven't go down a new still need to get it done so i lent this <hes> from my previous coach sandler brown and it was certainly very helpful and i know you can feel myself procrastinating on things i more tiny things like just generally household stuff <hes> it works really well and old son to snap out of it and <hes> just get it done straightaway but of course something like these brushes it just brought up so many other underlying issues underlying beliefs beliefs which is why i wanted to chachi guys about it so that you could learn something from it through because out brain likes to convince us of some pretty pretty interesting things my brain in this situation definitely want to stay six and wanted to stay in my comfort soaring so do it kind of kept me from. I guess branching out because if i if i have created them when i set out was is going to wake subaru when i told myself i was going to so at that first opportunity and if i have all the evidence and what if it didn't pay off off what if it was a foul what if my effort was wasted and the some times tends to happen with offices that will worried about putting in the effort because we're worried that it might be wasted and so therefore if we leave things until the last last minute then we can kind of an excuse and a bit of an out that way it doesn't work out. We can say oh well. I mean it would've gone better if i had done it a few weeks ago and if i have more time but i just run out of time so i kind of had to do what i could does this sound familiar at all when you're back in high school studying for exams or doing an assignment. Did anyone leave. You've studying for exams until the last minute cramming as we like to collate now again if you don't do while on the that exam you've you've got it out and you've got a really good excuse because you said he self all will. I would have done better if i didn't have to cram but i had to cram because iran at a time because of course so many other things to do again. We know that that's just downwind being really sneaky out brain <hes> china anna lawless into a false sense of reality when really the reality is you do have the time you just making a drama out of it and therefore you're perceiving that you don't have enough time so again out. Brian likes to keep us nice and safe and and also out identified as safe as well so that was something that came up for me when i was really thinking about what happened is i've got this identity wendy that i've got potential and i've been told that ever since i was in high school without i've got potential so it's almost like for myself in situations holding back effort because if i put in the full effort and i don't succeed then all of a sudden. I don't have potential well well in my mind. I don't so i hold myself back a little bit than my identity of having potential can be true <hes> so so if this resonates with you if you feel you're a person that's gonna potential but never put dinner full effort you sorta. Hold yourself back back just very sneakily. Not you know not consciously and again it's to protect your identity and and so this is more about being <hes> just self aware that this is happening in this is what our brain is doing. Because of course you can overcome it and i know you're by <hes> talking about these lessons from why went in a situation that it can help other people because until you have to put itself out there. It's sometimes these issues. Don't really come up until you'll put in that situation so does have i think about <hes> what you'll identity is and how you're trying to protect it. The loss lesson that i learned and so the first one was about recognizing self sabotage second one was the fact that time is not really the issue. It's the story we're telling us what was about time and the third one was self. Trust now. This is a really interesting one <hes> because this is what i was talking about at the start of the episode when i said following through without plans so we create these plans and then all of a sudden something comes up with tied we don't have time whatever else ities and we dark forward through without penn plans now each time that happens we lose a little bit of trust without selves so you could imagine if you've got a friend and you organized to catch up with them and they keep canceling on you at the loss minute and this is maybe happened five times. Would you trust that.
