Your Mind has an Auto-Pilot
Your Mind is a very powerful Tool. It can change the way you think, the way you feel, the way you act, even the way you see things. This Tool is a basic impact on your Life and your Career. I highly recommend you to use this tool. Here is how to Train your Mind for Your Requirements.
The mind is very powerful. It is fed by experience and learning. Even in the case that everyone learns the same and grows up in the same area, within the same culture, the mind is still different from person to person. Each person is interpreting the learned and experienced things differently. The hypothalamus (or limbic system), a small part of our brains is steering all automatic functions of us human beings, like hunger, pain or joy. This is called subconscious. The subconscious is influencing the (automated) interpretation of the environment a lot. Imagine, you are scared of a spider. You see a spider in front of you, what do you do?
Your environment influences your Reaction
Now imagine, you are sitting the office, some colleagues are around. You in the bright office with people around, reading an E-Mail and suddenly a bird hits the window. Would your reaction be differently? I trust so.
As you see, the environment, your emotional situation is influencing your automated reaction directly. Also if you know, you are safe, an unexpected situation causes automated reactions. The form of the reaction depends on your feelings and your thoughts in that moment. The consciousness influences the subconscious, but the consciousness cannot fully steer the subconscious, while the subconscious can fully overwrite the consciousness for some time.
How to control your mind
Now imagine, the mind, controlled by the functioning of our brains, including the limbic system can be trained. If you want to be great in math, train math. For being more innovative, exercise practices that train your creativity. In case, discussing about the sense of life is your biggest life enrichment, than build your opinion and discuss with others. Be open for the opinion of others and think about it to enlarge your possibilities.
The right direction can positively change your Life
This understanding brings you a development of your mind: You learn to see the things more positively and to see chances instead of risks. You learn to step forward instead of looking or stepping back. I enjoy my life much more than I expect it to be, seeing the risk first. This strong trust in the good inside helps to survive hard times, like my fight against cancer. You are stepping forward through hard times, remembering the awesome target and hard times seem less hard.
A Positively Trained Mind supports your Health
Especially in my times in the hospital I recognize drastic differences: People with a positive Mindset recover with less setbacks and even faster than people with a negative mindset. When I share a room with people always complaining about everything, this also influences me and I feel worse than a day before or later, when I shared the room with more positive people. I believe that a positive mindset also directly influences the health and the recovery from diseases.
You have the chance to control the power of your mind, maybe less by what you see in the media, but by what you experience yourself. It is up to you to actively power up your mind or follow the direction it goes. You can create great things with it. Trust yourself. Be active and not the victim.
