Ever notice how you do the same things over and over again even though
you may not be happy with the outcome? Over the years you may have
formed habits of how to respond to your own emotions but also how to
respond to people and situations. Rick Carson in his well know book
‘Taming Your Gremlin’, writes about our inner gremlin and the part it
plays in keeping our life in a small box. It may have the veil of keeping us
safe and secure but ultimately our gremlin may squeeze all the life and joy
out of us.

Gremlins come in positive and negative forms – the positive one
encourages and supports you in what you do, the negative one (usually the
loudest one!) puts doubts in your head as to your ability to handle situations
and encourages you the stay just the way that you are. Habits are neither
good nor bad but may be based on the world as you perceived it at some
other time. They may be still suitable but may also be antiquated and

Habits can be beneficial if they are adopted willingly and do give a certain
amount of security. However, your gremlin will sometimes convince you
that operating out of habit is the best and only choice that you can make.
Habits may then be cemented out of fear and fear is your gremlins primary
tool. Consider this; as long as you operate out of habit, you will limit your
ability to fully experience, appreciate and enjoy your life.

If you want to change some habit in your life, try not to swap one habit for
another and don’t beat yourself up about having to change. A new rule is
no more than a new habit. Instead ‘Taming Your Gremlin’ encourages
you to adopt a spirit of adventure towards your life, by simply noticing how
your habits and your negative gremlins are getting in the way of you living
your life to the full.


You cannot prevent the birds of care and worry from

flying overhead, but you can stop them

building a nest in your head
