You can stretch yourself and enjoy greater success and happiness in every area of your life when your mind and subconscious mind are mentally fit. Keeping your mind free of wandering negative thoughts will keep you focused on the task, eliminate fears by taking action, and reinforce your beliefs that you can accomplish whatever you set out to do.
So how do you get your mind and subconscious mind in shape? Well, I'll explain just how to do this in today's blog, so read on and enjoy.
We always hear how important it is to be in great physical shape. But it's just as important (if not more important), to keep your mind in shape, so that you're mentally fit. If you're mind isn't in shape, your life is likely going to be completely out of whack (whack is a technical term...lol) .
Keeping your mind in shape means having a positive attitude, creating positive thoughts, focusing on solutions, keeping an open mind, and directing your mind and subconscious mind to help you achieve your goals.
For those of you who workout regularly like myself know that if you were to stop exercising or cut down on exercising you won't feel as good. Your body will end up being out of shape and you'll lose the energy level that you currently have. Your mind is the same. If your mind is out of shape you won't have the drive, the motivation, or the belief in yourself to achieve your goals and live your dreams.
When your mind is mentally fit, nothing can stop you. With a mind that is focused, and with a positive belief system in place you will improve the quality of your life and achieve your goals. Having a mentally fit mind is like having the body of Mr Olympia or Miss Universe, you're at the peak of your abilities and will enjoy some level of success daily.
Trim the Fat, Cut Out The Junk!
Just like you want to eliminate the fat from your body and replace it with muscle, just like you would want to lose the excess weight by eating better and eliminating junk food, you have to eliminate the junk that's in your head.
The junk or negative thoughts and limiting beliefs have to be eliminated and replaced with positive and empowering thoughts. Negative and limiting beliefs have to be replaced with positive and empowering beliefs.
We all will have some fat on our body, and we all have some junk in our head.
If you have too much junk in your head it can really slow you down, and prevent you from taking the action you need to take in order to achieve your goals and live the life that you want.
To start eliminating the junk in your head pay attention to what you regularly think about. The next time you're driving, walking or taking a shower catch yourself thinking. Pay attention to what you were just thinking about and make a note of your thoughts. Write them down if you like. Then take a look at them, and ask yourself:
You should get rid of the junk in your head and change these useless thoughts by having thoughts that are empowering and allow you to create solutions to help you achieve your goals and create the life that you want.
Now I want to share a personal technique that I use to help me keep my mind fit. I usually do this in the morning, or in the evening right before I go to bed.
Just imagine your mind is like a clear blue sky on a sunny day. Not a cloud in sight. Now as you keep looking up at the sky you start seeing clouds slowly drift by. Those clouds are negative thoughts. Now I'm not telling to you replace the negative thoughts with something positive, that doesn't work, that cloud will still drift into your clear blue sky.
No. I want you to recognize the cloud and see it for what it is, then think of other ways to see if differently, and allow that cloud to pass by. So you are accepting the thought, but you are not internalizing the thought and you are actually using the thought for you to walk through what you tell yourself.
Yes, it will be difficult, but if I just start by doing one thing first, I can get some momentum moving forward.
Yes, I've failed before, but I've learned so much, this time it will be different and with this new approach I'm excited to see the results.
Yes, I'm afraid, but I always get nervous when I try something new, this will pass as I soon as I take the action first step.
Focus on what you want to achieve and create thoughts that allow you to reach your goals.
If you want to improve a relationship with a friend think about how you can improve that relationship.
If you want to get a new job or make more money, then think about how you can get a job or make money.
Think of thoughts that help you achieve what you want and this means asking how to do something rather than stating that you can't.
When you carry junk in your head you cripple your mind, it can't work on what you want because you're not giving it the chance to help you achieve your goals. Instead you're feeding it junk and sending it in the wrong direction.
Give your mind and subconscious mind the instructions they need by having positive and empowering thoughts.
When you have junk in your head you also cripple your subconscious mind because you don't direct your subconscious mind, instead you confuse your subconscious by feeding it junk and not telling it to work on what you want to achieve.
Start paying attention to what you are thinking. Eliminate the junk in your head and create thoughts that help you achieve your goals. You'll then be instructing your mind and subconscious mind to help you create the life you want. You'll start making the right decisions and you'll begin enjoying success while creating a positive belief system. Once your subconscious mind picks up on your new positive belief system, you'll see your entire life change.
Don't waste another minute keeping negative thoughts.
They don't help you.
They don't serve you.
Eliminate the negative and useless thoughts. RECOGNIZE them & ALLOW them to pass by using them to empower you.
Start believing in yourself - create a positive belief system and you'll begin to achieve your goals in no time.
