How to Reprogram Your Mind
Are you living the life you’ve always wanted to? Or have you settled into the status quo?
Most of us have a vague idea of what we think we deserve. When life veers away from that path we have quietly set for it, we often become frustrated and upset. “Why is this happening?” we wonder. This discontent can be powerful; it can spur us to make change.
But discontent is a double-edged sword. So many of us end up turning our frustration and upset against ourselves, sabotaging any potential success. We start thinking that we deserve better, and we may work a little harder for a few days, but rather than take action and strive for lasting change, we drop right back down to where we think we belong – in our careers, our finances, our relationships, our health, our general sense of well-being.
What if you took active control of your mind and redirected your focus on making your life a masterpiece? What if you reprogram your mind to design a life that gives you fulfillment, joy and passion?
Your mind is the key to success and you have the power to learn how to reprogram your subconscious. If you want to live the life you desire, then it’s time to decide, to commit and to resolve. It’s not what we can do in life that makes a difference – it’s what we will do. And there’s no better time to take back control of your mind and set your sights on something better right now.
STEP 1: DECIDE
The first step you need to take is to gain absolute clarity on what it is you want. Learn how to stop overthinking everything and focus on your goals. What is your desired outcome? What would unlocking an extraordinary life look like to you? Clarity is power. The more thought you put into this, the more detail you lay out, the stronger and more powerful your vision will become. This creates a subconscious mind map, giving your brain the tools necessary to turn that vision into reality.
Subconscious reprogramming starts with deciding what you want – right now and in the future – and to focus on it. Give your brain direction because where focus goes, energy flows. What do you want physically, financially, emotionally and spiritually in your business and in your personal life? Make the decision that you are not willing to settle and that you are not willing to live the way you are living right now. Set your sights on what you want and begin reprogramming your brain.
STEP 2: COMMIT
After you decide what you want, the next step of subconscious reprogramming is committing. Rid your mind of fear and self-doubt. How do you do that? By committing to it and letting it drive you.
Fear is one of the biggest traps that keeps people from taking action. We all have fears – fear of rejection, fear of failure, success, pain, the unknown. If you do nothing, that fear will remain exactly where it is, blocking your path. You will not move and you will always live in fear. You might not do any worse, but you also won’t do better. And that fear will always be present in the back of your mind, pushing you away from your goals. The lack of action gives the negativity time to poison your thoughts: “It’s a good thing I didn’t try. I never would have made it.” This fear-based negativity, when allowed to spread through your subconscious mind, will seep into everything you think about yourself, as well as everything you do.
The only way to deal with fear and reprogram your mind is to face it head-on. You must look it in the eye and take action in spite of it. Are you afraid of failure? Look at it this way: Failure is an education. If you do something and fail, you will know what doesn’t work. You’ll be able to take a more educated, informed approach when you try again. You’re better off than where you were before.
STEP 3: RESOLVE
Once you have decided on your path and committed fully, take inventory of your situation. What are your current actions getting you? Direct your mind toward assessing what is working and what isn’t. Make the shifts. Resolve is about finding solutions to whatever may come your way.
