Summary
In this Ask Dr Love Radio show, Dr. Jamie Turndorf explains why humans repeat behaviors even if they do not achieve the desired results, outlines 8 steps needed to free oneself from self-defeating patterns, and shows how to make your own list of relationship resultions that will crank your love life into high gear this year.
Every year, millions of people across the globe make New Year’s resolutions to improve their career, health, fitness, weight loss or finances. Sadly, our resolutions fail not because we have no discipline but because humans are creatures of habit. Our brains are wired to maintain the status quo.

In addition, humans have the bad habit of repeating behaviors that don’t yield the results we want. If we consider the analogy of a rat trapped in a maze, each time the rat hits a dead-end, he backs up and goes another way. Humans keep banging their ends on the wall. If we all patterned ourselves after rats, and systematically backed up and tried a different path, we would be amazed at the transformation that would occur in our lives.

In this show, Dr. Turndorf focuses on 8 proven steps for setting oneself free of habitual behavior patterns that interfere with the achievement of New Year’s resolutions. And how to create a relationship resolution that will crank one’s love life into gear.
