When it comes to having to managing your mind, your brain is both marvelous and complex.
There are many processes and tasks it will do on its own – which both works in our favour and against us at the same time.
It keeps us breathing and our hearts pumping without us having to pay much attention at all, if any.
However, much in the same way the brain likes to automate many of our daily functions, it will also take over our thought processes if we let it and usually not in a good way.
While there is a part of our brain that is highly evolved, there is still a very primitive component to it that continues to want to conserve energy, keep us safe and seek pleasure and avoid pain.
Basically, it wants to keep us in the cave – or nowadays, lying on the couch watching Netflix all the time.
And that’s the part of our brain that needs supervision.
My coach refers to it as being like a toddler with a knife.
You need to assume control and give it guidance, otherwise, it will default to the negative and it will offer us terrible, low quality thoughts.
Thoughts like “I’m not good enough” or “I could never do that”.
What I’ve learned is that just because our brain offers us these thoughts, we don’t have to believe them!
Just say no.
No thanks to those thoughts that keep us doubting ourselves and stuck in fear and self-criticism.
You don’t have to believe them.
You can choose new thoughts – ones that serve you. Ones that inspire you and propel you into action that will create the results you want for your life.
Doubt your doubt.
Choose new, higher quality thoughts to think.
