Do you ever really think about the power of your mind?
I DO think about the power of your mind, my mind and everyone’s mind and how it can be used to solve problems, instead of focusing on them. So I write this to inspire and give hope if you need it, not to complain. I’d like to think the majority of people are happy in their lives but emails I receive and my experiences with others indicate the opposite. Pain points are abundant.
And so I share this…
Yesterday will go down in history, in my mind, as one of the lowest days of my life. Mostly because I caught myself in the act of considering things that I don’t give myself permission to consider. I caught myself doubting my abilities and wondering if there really is a dark cloud that was assigned to follow me through life. (That WAS a firm belief I held years ago.)
My focus kept going to, “Why can’t I get a break? Why does it have to be thing after thing? Was I delusional about this?” It appeared that I had made a big mistake with the direction I had chosen to go with a project. And one thing after the other took a step back, and money continued to go out instead of come in. And the negative grew and became implications of failure in the future.
And then I noticed! So as usual, I went to the next step and started using my TFS process, knowing I had to be very aware, diligent and persistent.
I woke up to a new day and a completely different story. I could have quit when I felt like doing just that and tomorrow’s experience, which is my today, would not have been as great as it feels right now. And that is the story of my life. I am determined to keep my eye on the end result and not on the firestorm that is all around me at the time. I always know it will change.
But monitoring the power of your mind is the key.
I share this because I consistently hear from people that it is different for me, and easier for me or something else that explains why I get results and why they don’t.
I believe it boils down to this…I know my thoughts are powerful and that ignoring subconscious mind power is as dangerous as giving a child a box of matches. I have formed the habit of observing my thoughts and changing what needs to be changed. ASAP!
When I catch myself focusing on what I don’t want, I make adjustments in my TFS, my thinking, feelings and what I see regarding the issue, and I persist in that “Dance” until the change happens.
Yesterday, real things were happening. There were glitches in software and other people didn’t follow through with things. Those are facts. When those things happen, there is no reason to let the power of your mind run rampant and make it personal. I took my focus off of the end result I was after and started looking backwards, not consciously and on purpose, but subconsciously. But whether it is conscious or not, it fuels, gives energy, to whatever you are focused on.
So because I have formed habits, I could catch it, tell myself it was just a part of my brain acting up again; tell myself I needed to grab the reins and steer in the direction I intended to go and not back where I have been.
That’s what I did; that’s why today is different. You can use the power of your mind in the same way. You just have to do it!
