This blog is not going to be different than what you’re used to getting from me. I’m going to explain an interesting thing about the typical mind over the next five blogs. With each blog, I will help you to understand what you have to put up with, when you live with the typical mind, until you clean it up.
Day Two of Five: Psychological Immaturity
Psychological immaturity comes from a tricky mind that convinces you that it wants to grow, but it says “NO” whenever the opportunity to grow shows.
When we are “psychologically immature,” we blame others for our problems; we look for reasons to prove that our lives are too complex and we can’t do anything to improve it. We choose low level answers that point to the world for our ills.
You’ve heard of GIGO – garbage in, garbage out. Well that’s what an immature mind is addicted to – it continually collects low level explanations that amount to nothing more than a mound of stinky garbage, that produces stinking thinking: (1) life is tough, that’s all there is (2) our lives are predestined, so don’t try so hard (3) we’re only human, of course we’re going to fail (4) we’re born flawed, stop trying to improve yourself; just accept it. With all of this garbage going in, you have no chance of winning at the game of life.
Awareness of this bad mental habit gives you power to break it.
