"Daniel Goleman also points out that the limbic system takes much longer to be reprogrammed (i.e., learn new behaviors) than does the neocortex. Only after months of repetition and practice can one create “new neural pathways [that] become the . . . default option” for the emotional brain." -- Lt Col Sharon M Latour, USAF, Lt Gen Bradley C.
