6 Tips on Thinking Yourself into Greatness




There has been a huge movement that has been going on which says if we think positive thoughts we can overcome negativity and move into positiveness. For years people have been focusing on and doing positive affirmations and it is not working at all. People are getting really tired of it. People have become tired of this philosophy that just positive thinking can project us into being happy, fulfilled and successful. To think that we can just think positive thoughts and that type thinking will help us through life's barrier is very misleading.

Less than 10% of our ability to succeed, lose weight, overcome bad situations, recover from addictions, form deeper relationships, achieve love, and make closure with major life losses, has to do with how we think. Actually more than 90% has to do directly with beliefs that we formed as we grew up and are stored in our subconscious mind which we are unaware of. Believe it or not we have been accumulating and accepting beliefs over our life time. It is these stored beliefs which directly govern how we think.

In order to make a substantial change to how we think we have to understand how our mind works and that over 90 percent of all thoughts are influenced and govern by our beliefs that have formed from our experiences and have embedded themselves in our subconscious mind.  The degree of our happiness, fulfillment and success originate from our beliefs which we are not conscious of. If we search deeper, what really determines who we are, how we behave, our emotions and our identity originate from what is termed our mind code?

Mind code is data gathered everyday of our lives from situations we go through. Think of mind code as a mind algorithm. An algorithm is step by step instructions of how the mind will operate. The data is then converted into our belief system. 

A mind algorithm is very similar to a computer algorithm. In a computer it is the algorithms that tell the computer and program how to function. If the computer algorithms get changed like through a virus then the computer reacts differently or doesn’t work at all. The same is true with mind algorithms. If the mind accepts negative data from experiences, it then produces negative beliefs and in turn generates negative thoughts. An example is if we experience a hurtful situation that causes us to form a belief that we are not good enough then we think we are not good enough. 

Mind code that ultimately decides how we will act, feel, interact and think about ourselves, others and life situations.

6 Tips on thinking yourself into greatness

Let's get started changing your life.

1. Believing that you can create positive habits. The truth is, it’s just as easy to create positive habits as it is to create negative ones. It’s just a matter of how you spend your time.  You can spend your time believing things you are not or create new beliefs that bring you closer to what you want to believe in. Or submitting to old beliefs that do not serve you.  Thinking negatively can become an addiction. People complain, “It’s too hard to keep my energy up thinking in what is good for me!” It’s not hard – it’s just that people get in the habit of thinking negatively. If this sounds like you, break the habit.  Realize that you are where you are because of the way you believed in the past, and your future depends on the beliefs you accept today. You can choose to stay negative, or create new beliefs that will change your thinking.  You can choose to watch another sitcom, or you can choose to read another chapter in a great book. You can choose to act on opportunity, or you can choose to barriers.  There’s nothing hard or complicated about it, other than the way you’re thinking based on old beliefs that no longer serve you.

2. Ruminating on everything, over and over again. Lack of confidence and discipline, mixed with over expecting rapid success and negative beliefs, fuels a habit of negative thoughts. Many studies suggest that ruminating is a self-handicapper: rather than risk failure, they prefer to create and indulge in beliefs formed long ago that create barriers to success and make it next to impossible which forms a vicious cycle. The best thing you can do for yourself is to break this cycle – stop saying “I can’t,” start saying “I can,” and then put it into action. The world isn’t going to dominate itself.  Stop fearing something will probably won’t happen in your life. Thinking isn’t enough; you must apply!  Building a strong belief system is the way toward successful thinking; you must DO! If you can’t change all beliefs at once changing a few at a time will add up. A positive belief system built over time, in small increments, tends to be create a change in your thinking that lasts for a long time. 

3. Comparing oneself to others, and then harboring bitterness or resentment. Negative thinking people believe someone else’s good fortune steals from their own. They believe they are not good enough to deserve success. This leads to bitterness and resentment. Don’t let bitterness (or jealously) get the best of you. Bitterness is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own – there’s nothing attractive or admirable about believing this. So stop comparing your journey with everyone else’s. Your life is your life. Living isn’t a competition. You are competing with yourself to believe you are the best you can be. If you want to measure your improvement, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.

4. Self-doubt fuels negativity and withdrawal. The mind is an awesome tool if used right, but it’s also a negativity engine that attempts to fill your awareness with doubt if you allow it. Any uncomfortable thinking should be rejected. Don’t accept it and let it get the best of you. Believe in yourself through tough times. Believe in your capacity to flourish. Believe making new connections are worth the effort. Believe strongly that people make mistakes on their way to greatness. Believe that people can be thoughtless and intelligent, selfish and gracious, and stressed and excited all at the same time. Believe that there are many roads to what’s right. Most of all believe in your intuition, especially when you have to choose between two good paths. Believe that the answers are within you not outside you. Believe that life will surprise you over and over again. Believe that your experiences along the way are the destination. Those who don’t have strong and positive beliefs, think they will never find their strength within.

5. Don’t put yourself down. There is enough people out there to put you down due to their own negative beliefs. Begin with forming compassion toward yourself. Compassion simply is a keen emotional understanding of the situations you have experienced and how they have gotten you to where you have gotten to. Believe that you can overcome anything and your thinking will fall in line.

6. Recognize your beliefs. You have to recognize your beliefs in order to correct them. Your core beliefs are the windows of your mind code. Meaning if you make the effort to recognize the bad beliefs you carry and change them then your life will change for the better. So write down a list of all your core beliefs you have about yourself. Study the list and determine whether each one is true or false, real or delusional, yours or someone else’s and finally what kind of emotion that belief would produce. For every belief that is false, delusional, accepted from someone else and produces a negative emotion, then write a new positive one and accept it into your belief system with a strong positive emotion. Read your new list daily. Especially first thing in the morning and the just before you fall asleep when your mind is most pliable to new beliefs. Watch your thoughts change.

Takeaway

You can't think yourself to greatness but with a solid positive core belief system you can accomplish anything you want. Follow #6 above and create a new skill which will manifest in a change in your thinking and the result will be a new you!

6 Tips for Editing Your Mind



Do you read into everything too much, react too much, feel too much, sense too much and you know it is all do with your thinking?
Sometimes it seems like your mind is working against yourself. That your mind is always negative and you have no control over it? 

Did you ever wish you could just edit your mind like you edit your documents on your computer? Change how your mind works and get your mind to produce thoughts you like? Have you ever pondered why you say some of the things you say unintentionally, think the strange thoughts, act in a way that are inappropriate with who you are, respond incorrectly to the situations, or why you are just uncomfortable in your own skin? 

Do you ever question whether your mind is not allowing you to be who you want to be? Is it messing up your careers, relationships, or how much fulfillment you have as well as your future successes? If your answer is yes or sometimes, there is a strong possibility your inability to be who you want and how you function in life is caused by your mind script or what is termed mind code.

You really think that your thoughts are the core of your identity and it is your thoughts undeniably which generate person you are. The truth is ... it is not your thoughts which drive who you are and the life you have, actually it is your mind code.

Roots of Me

Tracing the roots of your thoughts to their deepest layers of your mind can be extremely beneficial and can help you find out who you are and why. Understanding the roots of you will help you be more compassionate toward yourself and why you think the way you do.  The origination of your thoughts or what drives you as a human could help you to deal with anxieties, beliefs, phobias, neuroses and general questions of why your life is the way it is.

Yet focusing too much and getting caught in constant examination of why your thoughts are so negative, and your need to control them (especially the disturbing ones), can throw you off in your search of where they come from, cause confusion and make feel a sense of loss. In fact, the more you overly focus on your thoughts for the “answer”, the more you do not find the answer. Over focusing on just how you think does not add more legitimacy, influence and solidity to your thought. Actually over focusing can drive you into a thought addiction. Believe it or not, your thoughts do not over rule your emotions and actions.

What drives your emotions and actions?

Do you feel like everything that you say and do is predetermined? You’re correct. You are normal if you think that way. Your thoughts are not the driver of your identity but only the passenger. Your thoughts are just a part of the big picture ....they are more like the tip of the iceberg. Thoughts are only the by-product of the script or code that is written deep within your mind as you grow up. It is your code that forms an identity. The truth is your conscious mind can only believe, do, feel, react, or think from what is written within your script. Nothing more and nothing less. Meaning you or your identity are only a manifestation of your script.

What is mind code?

Mind code, also termed mind script, starts being written at the time your brain activates before you are born. Once activated, your brain records all your history. This recording ability is called memory. Memory or the recording of your history is one small aspect of your total brain function. Unknown to you, in another compartment of your brain where data is accumulated and your code is formed.

Mind code? What is that? Even though you think your thoughts are created by you and you are in control of them, you really are not. Sometimes your thoughts seem to be completely out of control, and you feel like you are just tagging along for the ride. You mind code is data collected by your mind throughout all your experiences in your life and imprinted on your subconscious mind. Over focusing can cause you to get entangled in a thought addiction

This code is used to form your script and then is the content your core beliefs are generated. It is your core beliefs that supply content for you inner voice, which can either critical or supportive. Then it is the flavor and perception of your inner voice that produces you thoughts. It is essence of your thoughts then governs whether your emotions and actions are motivating or self-limiting and self-defeating. 

Your thoughts are also displayed through your facial expressions, emotions and behaviors. No one aware of or conscious of this process until your script or content is reflected in your thoughts. Nothing is known until your code revealed through your thoughts and then displayed in your facial expressions, emotions and behaviors which others see.  

Mind code is the result of ongoing imprinting and embedding of life data which is gathered in every situation in you experience. This data or code is a systematic collection generates all your beliefs that you formed about yourself, others and the world. 

Your code also records all your biases, doubts, expectations, fears, instructions, likes, dislikes, self-messages, procedures, promises, regulations and rules. The embedded data develops into a script, a written code that constantly runs silently in the background and determines who you will be and think. Your identity is govern from deep inside your subconscious mind who and how you will be. Simply it governs your identity. Really your script is a step by step operating code which manages, determines and influences who you are, what you say, how you react.

How does mind code express itself in your life?

Your mind code expresses itself eventually through your beliefs, and it is your beliefs which influence your thoughts directly. Then indirectly your behaviors, facial expressions, emotions and reactions are directed from your thoughts. 



6 Tips on How to Edit Your Mind

1. List all the beliefs you know you have about yourself. 

2. Assess which of your beliefs about yourself are beneficial and         which are not beneficial.

3. Make a mark next to the core beliefs you want to change. 

4. Edit the content by writing a new core beliefs.

5. Say each one out loud with emotion. Emotion is what avoids           your perceptual filters and embeds the new core beliefs in your       subconscious mind.  

6. Repeat your new list 2 times a day for 67 days. First time when       you first wake up and 2nd time just before you close your eyes         to go to sleep.

In changing your core beliefs, your brain automatically edit your mind code and you will operate on a whole new script. Once the script is edited, your thinking will change along with your facial expressions, behavior and emotions. Finally down the road your identity will change and you will appear to be different.

Takeaway

It is your mind code which is the root and true predictor of your identity. So who you are outwardly, how you feel, what you say, types of thoughts you generate, and how you react is always a manifestation of your mind code in the end.

So when dark thoughts arise, recognize them, grab them by the tail, and follow the thoughts back from your inner voice to the core beliefs where they originated and edit them. Therefore changing you. 

Don't let your code be the master of who you are. Be the architect of your own script, and you will be the master of your identity. Your identity is not rigid or unchangeable. In fact it is flexible. Take back your ability to change.
