The first word a kid, normally, says is “no”. And it comes from the learning of what can and can not be done, what is ok and what it’s not.
But once we become adults, many keep the “no” as their first answer. Could we try this? No. Would you like to …? No. Is it because we keep the sense that it may incur risks? Or just as simple as they do not want to try something different?
Think, How many “no”s do you say a day?
When we want to achieve behavioral changes, we need to reprogram deep learnings. And how easy is to change something we learned at a so early stage?
