Do you seem familiar? Who doesn't know this feeling of helplessness? How do you help yourself? "Not at all," you may say, "there's nothing I can do about it anyway" - shrug your shoulders and continue to endure your fate with your teeth clenched.

And now we tell you: This Problem exists mostly in your head. Because you've learned helplessness. And it severely limits your life. The Solution is sometimes much easier than you might think - and the learned helplessness can also be unlearned, as the following experiment shows:

A dog life?

Let's pretend for a moment that you are a dog - the breed is your choice. Let's further assume that you are sitting in a cage and are being electrocuted (some people might think so People very attractive, so don't be ungrateful!).

You will see a small lever next to you. They think, "Maybe I can turn the power off." And push the lever down.

Once twice.

3 times.

But nothing happened. The surge arrives and goes - completely regardless of what you do.

At some point you will be put into another cage. There the electric shocks continue. In the wall you see a small flap.

What do you do?

You just have to shut up

The real dogs in this real experiment don't do anything anymore. They sit and cry. In the second cage they just had to run through the flap, a few steps to the side – and they would be for sure been.

For the cage had two parts, and in the second there were no electric shocks. But the dogs had learned at the beginning that they could not escape the electric shock - no matter what they do. That's why they do not try to do it anymore.

They have "learned" that they are helpless. And that's exactly what you can unlearn again!
