Trust Minute with Alan Heller: Only You Can Prevent Dragon Fires

Control Bad Habits


Do you tell yourself lies about who you are or who God has made you? Or, do you have self-destructive thoughts which put yourself down or have nothing to do with who you really are. What are the roots of these lies and where are these messages coming from?

We want to explore this in our Trust Minute today and in a more expansive fashion in our podcast #7. Have you ever stopped to think, “why do I react so negatively in some situations? What is the cause of that big reaction to such a small thing?

Many of us don’t take the time to find out the root of our dragon eggs, as we call them in our book Learning To Trust. These are attitudes and actions that we think we can control but they really end up controlling us.

In this week’s Trust Minute, we discuss how to prevent bad habits from forming and taking over our lives.


Many of us coddle potentially dangerous habits. Initially, we may be unaware of the threat.

This principle applies to anything that you know you should say no to.

As Christian educator D.L. Moody said, “You can’t keep birds from flying overhead. But you can keep them from building nests in your hair.”
