COMFORT ZONES When our current image of the truth is threatened with the real truth, conflict occurs and we become uncomfortable and awkward. A temperature thermostat turns on the heat when it becomes cold and turns on the cold when it becomes hot, to manage a constant temperature in our environment. We have our own thermostat to regulate what we believe to be the truth. For example, if you’re playing golf and your average is 120 and you do a round where you don’t take score because your friend is, to your surprise you hit a 58 because you don’t know how well you’re playing. When you realise that you’ve hit such a high score, your belief system in your subconscious is different to what you have just shot. The next round you play you will not be relaxed, your palms will be sweaty and you will slowly go back to your old performance; your subconscious performance ‘kicks into gear’.
