MIND OVER MATTER! When your mind won’t mind…

I would like to start my blog today by sharing this post from Higher Ground 4U Motivational Marketing.
“The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.” Sigmund Freud.
When you are working toward achieving your dreams, your mindset is critical and you must have massive focus, be positive and be consistent. You must also continue learning to grow. But to grow, you must retrain your thinking to allow you to change your subconscious which protects you in many ways but also keeps you from implementing new behaviors. Just like forming a new habit but on a deeper level. Take time before each day to mentally plan out your day, what your goals are, call to action items. Be as detailed as you can. Always keep those in front of you to help you stay focused and stay on track! Remember it really is mind over matter and when you can envision your success you really are halfway there! Jeanne Shannon, Higherground 4U Motivational Marketing

You know it takes 21 days to break or start a new habit. Many don’t realize this and when they try to diet or try a new years resolution of fitness, they fail. The dedication is not there.

Ghandi once said: Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits…

If you thing positive, you are halfway there. Keeping your thoughts positive. How do you do that? If I have had a bad day, well let’s say, a not so positive day, I like to get out on my bike. I love to ride my bike. How can I be negative when on my bike. Find the one thing you absolutely love to do and do it.

Keep your words positive. If you think positive, your words stay positive. Don’t get wrapped up with the water cooler gossip and drama. There is so much more than to spend time on gossip and drama. That stuff is negativity anyway and what are we attempting to do here? Yes Stay Positive.

Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. I mentioned it above, it takes 21 days to form a new habit. I once heard this saying, “Fake it till you make it”. I don’t know if showing a false front is what we are after here but you have to convince yourself that you are going to be positive and stay positive. How do you do that? Acknowledge that you have a bad habit, decide you want to change it, then like most everything else, you have to do the effort. You have to change your behavior. Again, if it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Most people choose to stay average.

Remember the John Maxwell word of the day today? It is discipline. Believe in yourself and see yourself as the person you want to become. While this might not guarantee success 100% of the time, I assure you will not get there without thinking it.
