"You have to control your mind
or to let your mind control you.
- Paulo Coelho
You are not your mind.
Your mind is part of you, just like your foot or your hand.
One problem with our mind is that it is very often a big drama queen or a soap opera script writer.
Our mind makes up a lot of incredible stories filled with drama, disasters, doom and gloom of things that never happened and probably never will happen either.
So remember you are not your mind and you are not your thoughts.
You must learn to control your mind.
Manage it and train it to work for you, instead of against you.
Never negotiate with your mind, because you will not win.
Training and controlling your own mind is the most important skill that you can ever learn in terms of success and happiness.
How do we train our minds?
First you must start my paying attention to your own thoughts.
I suggest that you write some of them down on a piece of paper and then sit down and evaluate these thoughts.
Ask yourself......is this really true?
Your mind will constantly produce thoughts, around 500 00 per day so you can't write them all down. But you will see a pattern after a while because some thoughts will return every day and several times every day.
Unfortunately most of our thoughts are not supportive of our wealth and happiness.
As you identify these thoughts you can begin to replace disempowering thoughts with empowering ones.
Is it time for you to adapt a new way of thinking?
Decide that today your mind will be better if you start using more empowering thoughts.
Decide that you will no longer allow your thoughts to run you. Stop negotiating with your mind. Instead show your mind that you are the boss.
No thoughts lives in your head rent free.
You will pay for negative and disempowering thoughts in energy, happiness, health, wealth and time.
If you want to move ahead in your life and grow as an individual you must start monitoring your thoughts and decide to turn disempowering thoughts into empowering ones.
You must have thoughts that will assist you in creating happiness, health and wealth.
When a disempowering thought appears, you can just say cancel or next or thanks for your help but I don't need you anymore, and then replace it with a more empowering one.
Start practicing this way of thinking and your life will quickly change for the better.
"I will not let anyone walk through my mind
with their dirty shoes."
