Anand Mahindra’s social media posts are always interesting. With motivating messages to thought-provoking ideas or even his personal opinions, he manages to grab attention via his posts. And this time a funny video has caught his eye. The video in question is that of a dog teaching us a valuable lesson.
In the video, a dog standing in front of a glass window waits for it to open, not realizing that there is no glass at all. The frame of the door is without a glass and the dog can easily pass through, but doesn’t so, out of habit. It stays behind and keeps hitting the supposed non-present glass door with its paw. This shows how the dog in spite of been given access to the garden, is stuck with the idea of someone else opening the door for him. And only when the owner opens the door, is when the dog runs out in the garden. This shows how habitual conditioning can trick the human mind into believing something that may not be the case.

Indeed it is. Habit conditions your mind. Focus on your activity to improve result.
I would love to see someone showing me similar habit of mine.
That's why we need "Guru" or "Mentor"

Very true …like how we keep swiping at any lighted screen in front of us… even though it is not a 'Touch Screen' 😆
