“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”
Most of us know the difference between eating healthy and eating unhealthy. We know that a salad would probably do us better than a hamburger. We know that drinking sodas are worse than water because they contain a lot of sugar. We know that fruits are better than candy. Even if we choose the unhealthy, we at least know that it is the wrong decision.
When it comes to our brain and feeding it with the right knowledge and thoughts unfortunately I meet so many people that do it in the wrong way. Let me explain. All of us have an inner conversation with ourselves (if you go to Venice Beach you might even catch a fellow or two that actually have their inner conversation out loud). The inner conversation contains worries, tasks, secrets, dreams, problems, solutions etc. Research shows that 90-95 % of our thoughts and inner conversation are exactly the same as they were yesterday.
So before we move any further answer this question:
Are most of your thoughts positive or negative?
If most of your thoughts are positive, great! Keep it up, you are probably a happy and fulfilled person that dare to go after what you want.
If most of your thoughts are negative you are probably living a life that is thousands of miles from your full potential.
Don't worry, you can change your thoughts and you can change your life.
Let me give you a few tools that I have used in the past to evolve as an athlete (World Medalist), author and entrepreneur.
Get a pen and paper and do the following exercise. Do it now! Keep working on this for at least ten days. It will help you to achieve your goals in the future and create a healthier and more balanced life.
In this way, you slowly but surely change your negative thoughts into something good and positive that brings you ahead in life. Although it’s important to have patience. It won’t work immediately, but by doing your homework, you will eventually have trained your mind to think the thoughts that enhances your quality of life and brings you closer to your goals.
Another exercise for you who ponders a lot is to once again get a pen and paper. Write down your thoughts, no matter how ugly and weird they are. Write down everything you think and feel for about 20 minutes. Both positive and negative. Don’t judge the thoughts, just write them down.
When you're done, go through what you have written. The thoughts you don't like, you cross over. Before you finish this exercise, read the thoughts that are left (those that are not crossed out) three times.
For those of you who are new to working with yourself these exercises may feel strange at first, but do them with an open mind and give it a real shot. You will see the benefit it has for your mind.
