Habits - Why we do what we do
"Make no mistake about it. Bad habits are called 'bad' for a reason. They kill our productivity and creativity. They slow us down. They hold us back from achieving our goals. And they're detrimental to our health." - John Rampton
What you can expect in this course
What we do dictates what we have, who we are, and what we believe. The conditioning we are subjected to as we grow forms all of our habits. These habits form something called a Paradigm.
How we are raised creates our belief system. This is our conditioning. What we watch, hear, and feel ultimately shapes us. For much of our daily lives we are simply on auto-pilot.
The definition of insanity is “doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result.”
This course will walk you through how our brains function, and how we can in fact change any behaviour that we wish. This dispels the saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”
Our habits affect our well-being. If we have proper habits we can feel less stress, less anxiety and can manage depression. It is an important step to mental wellness.
This course is hosted by IGM founder Bob Wilkie, who will share his stories of how his habits both created and destroyed. He will guide you to a new understanding of what habits are, and will share a process in which you have the power to change anything you wish to.

Lesson 1 – Habits, Neuro pathways, and creating a super highway.
In this first lesson we will shed light on what a habit is and how they are formed. This lesson will provide many insights to your habits and how you have been conditioned. We will discuss how habits both create and destroy, and you will be required to do some self-reflection on the habits you have, and assess whether they are helping or hurting.
Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.
Lesson 2 – The Four Levels of Learning & Creating a Plan to Change
There is a process to implementing change. It is a simple process. The difficult part is to manage yourself through the necessary levels to make the change.
Through this same process is how you have learned everything in your life, which also means that you can continue to grow and change with the proper dedication and direction.
