To know this factor to be the x and y, I have to say x is the so far unknown factor or the current resident factor in us. The y factor is the new and improved idea that is being accepted or rejected. This post also touches the word anxiety and growth.
My mentor Bob Proctor, as I have gone back into to study of, because I believe I have fallen a bit behind from my coaching I had in the period from 2012 through 2013. I then have had the state of mind where I had to see what I could do to pull myself up again, to be fully functional again and to get going for my goals, and one of them is to sell. The current factor you shall perceive as the x factor, which is the unknown and the factor that current reside in you. Let me take you through the process of replace the y with the x. The x as told is the current habits you have, you can probably write a list with 50 or 100 habits, I can. Let us say you have a good walking distance to your mall, so when shopping you take your car because you want to make it quicker. One morning you get the idea of going all the way to the mall and carry it home with you. Though you are playing with the idea, you do not feel comfortable by walking that far, then you go to the car, you open the door, you step into the car and put on your seatbelt, then you turn the key but the car won’t start, it coughs, then at first you are considering it to be temporary, then you try again, and get the same result, it coughs, then you check the gas and the battery if something is wrong, or you might do that few times before you get annoyed.
The point of the y factor is to accept a new idea, then place it where the x is standing guard, and the x won’t move at any cost, the x is also the paradigm, where all habits are resident.
