What Is Mental Fitness?
Change Your Mind!
This is really amazing when you truly grasp and understand how powerful it is and if you don’t it can have such a negative impact on your life. Why do you think a lot of people go through life year after year getting the same results.
Your brain does not know the difference between what you actually experience and what you vividly imagine. The use of Positive Affirmations helps the Subconscious mind to reprogram through repeated personal, positive, present tense statements that can override the negative belief or negative thoughts already registered. The repetition of these affirmations brings about new attitude while creating new pathways in the Subconscious mind.
You can sit down and listen to or read any of these self help books and say I can do that, that make sense and is logical or I’m willing to do all of it to make the change. You can read all you want, you can listen to all you want, you can study all you want but if you don’t gain an understanding to alter the program, the current program is going to continue to give you the same results. So for you to increase your likelihood of success, you have to install some new programs. To do this, you have to literally create your future and you do this by planning. Below is a list of important questions you need to ask yourself.
* WHERE are you now.
* WHERE do you see yourself
* Steps NEEDED To Get There
Setting Your Goals
* Why do you really WANT to do this?
* WHY does it mean so much to you to accomplish?
* What PAIN are you going to finally get rid of?
* How PASSIONATE are you about making it happen?
Finding Your Vision
The more we see and focus on what we want the faster we attract it. Get excited about your vision and goals and imagine what it will be like when you accomplish them. The more you do this, the more you harness the power of your subconscious mind to help make them come true. This process will help you develop the compelling reasons why you want to achieve your goals It will help create an emotional drive within to ensure you don’t give up.
Meditation generally has something of a ‘bad’ reputation. That is to say that a lot of people associate it with religion or esoteric ideas and they think that they can’t meditate unless they’re ‘spiritual’. This can be off-putting for someone who doesn’t hold any religious beliefs or who doesn’t like esoteric ideas in general. But in fact you can practice meditation whether you are religious or an atheist.
All meditation really is, is a directed attempt to control your thoughts and the content of your mind and thereby to gain some peace and quiet or at least to be able to better understand the contents of your own brain. Often this means completely silencing all thoughts.
Many types of meditation, such as transcendental meditation, instruct you to think of ‘absolutely nothing’ and often this is achieved by focusing on your breathing, a mantra or a physical object like a candle flame. This can be difficult for beginners though, as they constantly find their mind wandering.
The idea behind mindfulness meditation then is not to try and empty your thoughts but instead to simply step back from them and ‘observe’ them like a detached third party. This way, you aren’t letting your thoughts affect you and make you stressed but you also aren’t going to struggle with not being ‘allowed’ to think anything. Meanwhile, using this technique will also allow you to become more aware of your own thoughts and thereby able to edit any thoughts that are leading you into trouble.
I strongly suggest getting more in tune with meditation. I have attached a great 5 Step Process to help you get the most out of meditation, even if you are a complete beginner.
