Your mind and body are highly influenced by behavior, which could be a good or bad thing. So much of what we say and do is just by default, like when someone asks how we are, and we say fine, even when we're really not. As humans, we become a bit robotic in our daily lives, pretty much doing things out of habit.
A habit can be useful, as it streamlines a process making things automatic, which is nice because we don't have to think about every move we make. A habit is double edged, and can become complicated when it turns into obsession, like when you become addicted to drugs, or if it makes you so regimented you're unable to adjust or change the habit to achieve a better result.
However, habits are part of how we evolve as human beings, with the things we end up learning and teaching ourselves unwittingly at times becoming who we are. Our lives can be a series of phases as we transition in and out of, which sometimes leads us in to a rut. It can be so subtle to the point we become blindsided, not knowing how we got to this point in our lives.
Nevertheless, life is complex and continually in a state of flux, at times becoming chaotic, spinning out of control, but we still must somehow carry on. Interestingly, it seems when life is lived at it's fullest, it becomes a tricky dance between chaos and control, so how the hell do we keep moving forward in a productive way. If you have a legit trainer, they will know how to navigate you through the above process as it relates to your training program.
