Nowadays for most of the people it is hard to stop or control thinking, meaning that we go crazy due to million thoughts simultaneously. Sure, most of us want and have tried to control thoughts, stop them, but my personal experience showed that things got even worse afterwards, more stress, anxiety. There is a lot of studies done on this so you can search if deeper understanding needed.
In this article and workshop page followed I will give my experience on shifting MINDSET and respectively THOUGHTS towards understanding and feeling that SUCCESS is in me already and all I needed to do is to make actions towards achieving whatever I want. Please see who else is assisting me in this journey to achieve my fulfillment CLICK HERE, but continue reading afterwards.
I am more than sure You have tried Positive Thinking and even talked with yourself in front of a mirror, there is nothing wrong, however can you say that it worked??? For some yes for some no, but do you understood why Yes and why NO? Talking to yourself is good, gives you good emotions for a period, but it is not long lasting and sustainable feeling, unless you do it constantly, but then relatives will send you far away J. To be truly successful we need positive thinking and positive emotion to be long lasting, or at least in crucial moments. After digging deep inside I made strange discovery for myself. Even though most of my thoughts about myself were extremely good (result of positive thinking) nevertheless I was not able to feel fulfilled by what I have achieved. In most occasions, I had joy for couple of weeks and that was it. This raised a lot of WHY questions.
Had passed tons of books and courses to find WHY. After all I realized pattern in myself:
· During GOOD MOMENTS (vacation, time with kids, new car, long waited dinner with spouse, promotion in work) I was thinking that THEY WILL END SOON and how pitiful it is that it will not last forever. Basically in Good Moments I was thinking short term and injecting bad emotions instead of living the moment and being 100% present.
· During BAD MOMENTS (illness, accidents, bad financial situation, going to sea for work, failure, divorce) I was thinking as long term bad influence on me instead of that it is for short period and I will be just fine again.
As an outcome you can see in picture that in both cases Thoughts were Negative and Emotions in Good moments were mixed with negative ones, this led me to understand basic factor of my thinking faculty. IN CRUCIAL MOMENTS MY THOUGHTS WERE NEGATIVE WHICH CREATED NEGATIVE EMOTIONS AND THIS NEEDED TO BE CHANGED.
Once I understood that this pattern was basically in all my life main areas I was shocked, and released simultaneously.
I HAD A KEY AND OPPORTUNITY TO OPEN MY SUCCESS, AND I HAVE DONE IT AND I WISH ALL PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE CAN FIND THIS KEY AND DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES TO BE SUCCESSFUL (Task: Success – put here what success means to You).
Summary and action for You:
Thoughts in peak moments of the day decide your emotions and Success respectively. The way you think and What you think about yourself in crucial moments of life (bad, good) define outcome for success. And when You learn to shift Good Moments to long lasting, with positive emotions and 100% presence and Bad moments as short term happenings, with possibility for quick emotional recovery you will see improvements in your daily life. Do not believe me, go and try – Print out working page below, OBSERVE YOUR THOUGHT IN Good, bad MOMENTS OVER NEXT WEEK, preferably write them down, for future reference.
