Unleash The Power Of Your Mind

Unleash the power of your mind

Weather/Traffic/ Moods of people......what is the one thing among these that we can have control over? None I suppose, because it is not in our hands to control them BUT YES we can control our emotions and feelings against these through having control over our mind.

"A man who rules his mind rules the world"

How rightly said! Whether it is Physical vitality/Enthusiasm /Self confidence, any thing that is required to succeed in life depends mainly on our mental fitness and our mental agility. Because success on the outside starts with success in the inside. All our success depends on the 12 pounds mass sitting between our shoulders. This 12 pounds mass has lots of potential, lots of positive energy.Every individual is born with the same raw material, then why is it that some of them succeed, some become achievers and some don't? It all depends on how you refine that raw material and how you use it i.e. how you tap the immense potential of your mind and how you use your mind effectively.

Our mind is just like any other muscle of our body and when it comes to'muscles' it is rightly said 'You use it or you loose it' this means that you have to exercise your muscles or else they grow weak.
For ex. if you want to strengthen the muscles of your hand you have to train them, if you want to toughen your leg muscles you have to exert them, etc.
In the same way we can strengthen our mind through certain simple methods like 'Self awareness', 'Mental training', Mental Imaging', and of course a few breathing exercises.

Every thing starts with our thoughts. The quality of our Life is directly proportional to the quality of our thoughts. As Winston Churchill stated that "Price of greatness is to have responsibility over EACH of your thoughts.

" Thoughts act like seeds in the garden of our minds."As you sow, so shall you reap'. If you sow positive thoughts then the result is definitely going to be positive and if you sow thoughts of doubt then life may seem uncertain and the harvest may include questions such as 'Can I succeed' , Will I ever be good enough' , etc.

Negative thoughts lead to negative energy and that in turn causes diseases, destroys relationships andmakes you ineffective.If you hope to make a remarkable improvement in your outer world you need tof irst start within and change the caliber of your thoughts. Because the quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life.

SELF AWARENESS/SELF MASTERY: "Knowing others is intelligence: knowing yourself is wisdom. Mastering others is strength:mastering yourself is true power." Selfawareness is becoming aware of each and every thought. Become your own observer, learn to watch your thoughts coming and going like clouds in the sky,watch how each emotion rises and falls like the waves of the oceans.

As you grow in self awareness, you will better understand why you feel what you feel and why you behave as you behave. That understanding then gives you the opportunity and freedom to change those things you'd like to change about yourself and create the life you want. Without fully knowing who you are, self acceptance and change become impossible.

MENTAL TRAINING: Mental training is naming and labeling your thoughts. By mentally noting 'sadness', I can think about what "seeds of sadness" I may have been watering. I have become aware of my mental/emotional state and can now make choices.

What seeds will I water? Our mind is a giant slide projector where each thought is a slide. Use the technique of opposition thinking, i.e. When the undesirable thought occupies the focal point of your mind quickly replace it with an uplifting one.

Become aware that you are thinking these undesirable thoughts. Our mind is the world's largest filtering device. Therefore use it properly so that it filters away that is unimportant and gives us only that information which you are looking out at that time, 'your priority'.

MENTAL IMAGING: "Imagination is more powerful than knowledge", AlbertEinstein. YES we can easily use the Power of Imagination for our success.Always hold wonderful pictures in your mind's eyes and imagine your experience before hand because our mind cannot differentiate between the real and the imaginary experience. Our mind has a magnetic power to attract all that we desire into our life.

A moment's thought will show us that unless we know "just what" we desire, we can take no steps toward attaining it on any plane of manifestation. And the more clearly our desires are perceived in our imagination, the clearer is the work of proceeding toward the realization of that desire.

A Mental Image gives you a frame work upon which to work. The minds of the majority of people are more or less blank screens or curtains upon which play the pictures produced there by outside influences, suggestions, environments, etc., for very few people realize their individuality, and are merely reflections of the thoughts and ideas of other people.
Therefore, mastery of the mind opens avenues of hope. We can begin to reshape our life and character, rebuild relationships, thrive in the stress of daily living, become the kind of person we want to be.
