The Power of Your Mind – No, Really the Power of Your Mind

Focus the Mind

You have a problem. (How do I know this? We All have problems or at least we think we do!!!)

Let’s say your problem is your mood. You want to be happy, but you can’t get out of negative feelings – frustration, anger, sadness, etc. You wonder:

Is it lack of sleep? Bad food? My time of the month? Too much caffeine, right? That comment from my co-worker, spouse, friend, etc.?

No, no, no, no, and no.

These could have been triggers, but it’s not the reason why you’re in a pickle right now.

The reason is the habits of your mind. You can have the best of intentions and desires to change your mood (or attain whatever solution needed for your problem), but until you change your habit of mind, you just won’t get there.

But there is Great News! You can definitely overcome this! How? The power of your mind! Duh!

What to Do When Things Don’t Go According to Plan

when things don't go according to plan

Let’s face it: things never go exactly according to plan. Whether it’s vacation itineraries, our career, getting the kids to school on time, or that plan to spend some quality time by yourself, things often have a way of getting off course from your original vision.

But I learned something really important recently: What goes wrong is as valuable as what goes right. Let me share my insights with you and, I think you’ll see there really can be a silver lining in things don’t go according to plan.

Don’t Just Take a Break – Bust a Move and Build Some Muscle

If you read a lot of self-improvement blogs like I do then you’ve probably heard of the concept of taking hourly breaks to improve productivity and reduce stress. And if you’re like me, it sounds great in theory, but in reality I don’t really do it. Why? I think maybe it’s because I don’t know what to do during that time. Certainly 5-10 minutes of meditation would be great, but most people’s work is already so cerebral, how about something physical instead? Here’s what I started doing and I love it!

I recently wrote about what to do if you are tired and the next day an  important revelation occurred to me about this.

I think many of us are tired and we don’t recognize it.

Before we can address being tired, what I like to call “low energy,” we need to be able to recognize this state. So what’s the big deal about being tired?

Simply put, most of the world’s problems stem from someone being tired and not doing their best when faced with challenges. The ripple effect then takes place and the problems multiply.

If you can manage your energy, you can control the quality of your life!

So let’s take a look at how to see past the veil of chronic tiredness and move on to a better life!

What You Really Need to Get What You Want

Answer

You don’t need more information. What you need is acceptance of the truth.

If you find yourself constantly searching for answers to the same questions, you probably already have the information that you need to know the answer.  For example, a common quest many people are on is “how can I lose weight?” There are a million books, articles, websites, programs, etc that will give you some version of the answer. What you need now is not more information, but acceptance of the truth about how to do it. Once you have that acceptance, then you can commit to doing it and finally follow through with action.

So let’s break this down further.
