Ways to Train Your Mind for Positive Thinking
With all of the noise we experience nowadays, it’s important to train your mind for greatness. As we all tend to hear, the mind is a terrible thing to waste. Therefore, everything we do or believe starts with the conditions of our minds.
Everything takes time because nothing happens overnight. It’s all a process at the end of the day. And the focus shouldn’t always be on the outcome as much as it should be on the process. Because when you think about it, that is where it all happens.
I have to say that any change is hard. The only thing promised in life is the thing that makes us the most uncomfortable. Think about it. Many of us cringe at the sight of change. I know, I know, it’s so much easier when everything remains the same, right?
If I put something down I want to be able to find it in the same exact place I left it. When we tell stories, even when it is told in the past, we say it as if the past is present. It seems so real. So much so, you believe you can almost touch it. Train your mind, not only to appreciate the past but allowing the past to stay there.
A Winning Thought
The best way to win is by being intentional as to what we consume. We all know what happens when you eat spoiled food. No matter how good it once was, it will never be the same. And we all know what was to happen if we were to intake such a meal in such a state.
The same goes for what we consume in our minds. Believe it or not, your thoughts have power. As a matter of fact, there are just as alive as you are. That’s because they are an extension of the thoughts we keep. You see, our minds are just like the GPS systems we use to navigate life. When you train your mind you get a better idea of the direction in which you are going.
Just like any home, be aware of what we allow to live within. Our minds are the computers of our body. The mind records and fuels our actions. When we are down and out, we feel hopeless. And when we drown ourselves in hopelessness we standstill. By no means is there any motivation to move forward. The mind associates our thoughts with the direction we want to go in. Therefore what we think about all day, in essence, is what we eventually become.
When You Train Your MInd You Find Peace
Peace. That’s what we experience when we are focused on attaining it. Actually, that is what we experience when feeding our minds with the proper nutrients. What books are you currently reading? What shows do you happen to be immersed in? Better yet, what conversations do you normally have, and with who?
I have been there. But in getting there I had to protect the source, the mind. And in protecting my mind, I had to do some shedding. Sometimes to feel free, we have to unload ourselves of all the things constraining us.
I had to question my beliefs along with the beliefs of those around me. At the end of the day, the most important outcome would be a peaceful one. Therefore, being mindful of what enters is just as important as being mindful of what exits. It flows hand in hand with the peace we are aiming to experience.
We all deserve the best of this life. We all deserve to experience everything this great life has to offer. The world is our playground. Within this world an abundance of experiences just waiting to happen. When it’s all said and done, how does your story end? However it does, just know that you’ll get out of it, nothing more than what you put into it.
When you train your mind, you’re not only giving yourself a chance. Rather, you’re giving everyone that comes in your presence an opportunity to truly experience you fully.
