Life Antivirus Program
First, a little background. With age, you develop a “life antivirus program.” Your life antivirus program is used to protect you from perceived threats to the self. The issue arises when your life antivirus program becomes so strong it actually begins to limit your own personal growth. The potential threat of your life antivirus program becomes more compounded when you begin to use it against your own inner need and wants.
The Life Antivirus Program in High School and College
The life antivirus program of your high school or college student is made up of the thought patterns used to keep up appearances of being stable and secure to the external world. Patterns such as assumptive thinking, limiting beliefs about the self, and poor goal setting are all things your son or daughter can pick up unknowingly. In some cases he or she may be taught these thought patterns. Procrastination, trouble getting along with a teacher, skipping a class, or acting out can all be signs of the life antivirus program at work. It is important to note that there is nothing that is inherently wrong with your son or daughter. He or she just needs some help to realize that there are options for thinking styles and patterns when feeling challenged. If your son or daughter has the ability to get dressed, get to school, and turn most work in what is mostly a compulsory situation, then he or she has the skills to work on the life antivirus program.
Don’t get me wrong, the life antivirus program serves a real purpose for a developing student’s thinking styles and patterns. There are definite issues in life that are better left for being screened out. The issue arises when the life antivirus is developed and relied upon to the point that it begins to limit opportunity and personal growth. In this case, it can really hold your son or daughter back from reaching his or her fullest potential.
Life Skill Hacking
Simply put, life skill hacking is listening and asking the essential questions. The aim is to help you son or daughter exploit opportunities to hack the less-than-ideal thought patterns and behaviors that make up his or her life antivirus program. Your son or daughter is led through concepts that result in “self hacking” the life antivirus program he or she has created. Reboot and Maintenance modules are offered to extend the learning toward long-term personal growth, creating a comprehensive suite of upgraded “selfware.”
