No matter what is going on in your life, your mindset is the most important thing you can focus on to improve your situation. This is true whether you are talking about your physical health, your financial health, your relationships, your career – name it. Your mindset is the KEY!
You can transform any situation in your life by changing your mind.
For years I believed that I had to focus on the problem so I could “figure it out”. If I just understood “why” this was happening then I could change it.
I later realized that I was putting A LOT of energy and focus on the “problem” by doing that. To shift my situation, I simply had to focus on what I wanted instead – to start seeing myself well, secure, loved, etc.
You see, the mind will go out and find evidence to support any belief that you hold. That is your mind's job. This keeps you safe.
For example, if you believe your job sucks then every day you go in, you will find evidence to support that your job sucks. “See, this company doesn’t even ______”. “See, my boss ________.” “Can you believe my co-workers??”
Do you see how our belief determines what we see? These are called our filters. Everyone sees the world through the filters of what they believe.
What if you decided that you were tired of feeling this way? So you either get a new job or a new attitude. You can change your job, just by changing your mind. TRY IT!
If instead, you went into work each day looking for evidence to support that you have a great job, you will notice totally different things in your environment. You start noticing that your boss isn’t a jerk, she is just stressed at home. Maybe her child is sick or she is struggling with her own problems. You see that you do have coworkers that have similar ideas as you. You see that the company offers some great incentives for _____.
This is just an example. You can apply this model to any area of your life.
If you are dealing with a physical illness, is it going to support you to focus on what’s wrong? “But I have to focus on it – how else will I get better” people say to me. While it is true that you have to do certain things to maintain balance in your body, it is not true that focusing on what’s wrong is going to make you feel better.
Instead, start focusing on getting better. Start seeing yourself as whole. Start finding evidence to support that you are getting better. “See, I made progress today!”
When people ask us how we are doing, it’s tempting to tell them how we don’t feel well, etc. But what this does is give more energy to not feeling well. It feeds what we DO NOT want which is to feel bad. Instead, when people ask how you are doing, tell them “I am getting better every day!” Share with them the little victories you have noticed.
See how this simple shift in mindset leads you closer to where you want to be, which is WELL and HAPPY?
Try these tips for yourself! Don’t just read about them. Share them with others who may benefit. They WORK! You have much more power in your situation than you think. Decide to believe in whatever it is you want more of. Go out and find proof that it exists in your world. Of course, you can find proof of the opposite. The truth is, you can find proof to support anything you want or believe to be true. Why not make it something positive?
