Home » 3 Ways to Master your Mind for less Stress & more Success
In order for you to live purposeful, happier and stress-free lives, you need to cultivate self-mastery or master your mind to break the barriers of limiting thoughts and consciously train your mind for optimism, self-discipline, control and direction towards your desired outcomes.
Mind is the window through which you see the world. Your perceptions, ideas, beliefs, likes-dislikes, choices and decisions are all based on your mental makeup.
The way one acquires his mental make up is dependent on the environment, past learnings and experiences starting from very childhood.
As we grow older, we continue to build new experiences which then keep on stacking upon each other as a framework for future behavior patterns.
The more intense the emotional experience, the more it will take precedence in your mind to be retrieved as the basis of future decisions.
This is the reason why sometimes people get stuck with past failures, trauma or setbacks and become paralyzed to move ahead boldly. We call this subconscious mental conditioning.
In order for you to live purposeful, happier and stress free lives, you need to cultivate self-mastery or master your mind to break the barriers of limiting thoughts and consciously train your mind for optimism, self-discipline, control and direction towards your desired outcomes.
I’ve mentioned three ways you can master your mind for a robust, focused and pure mind.
Self-awareness is how an individual consciously knows and understands their own character, feelings, motives, and desires.
Self-Awareness involves awareness of your thoughts, your values, your beliefs, your perceptions and your emotional flow. Once you start to become aware, you also notice the patterns that have always held you back or built hindrances and blockages in your life.
For the most part, it’s our own mind which is responsible for the reality of experiences that we live in.
Every single thought creates the vibrational energy which then attracts our life experiences matching the frequencies. So, becoming self-aware of how we think is vital to change the course of our life.
As Swami Vivekananda said :
“We are what our thoughts have made us; so, take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”
Self-Awareness helps in cultivating new habits so you can consciously take actions towards your outcomes you desire. This may include changes to your emotions, your behavior, or your personality.
Until you achieve this, you will have a hard time making changes in the direction your life is taking you and to live a stress free life.
How to use the Power of Mind to create more Growth, Happiness & overall Success.
The next thing after you become aware of your limiting thoughts or beliefs is to shift them towards positivity and expansion. What it really means is reframe the underlying emotions and direct them for your growth and harmony.
In order to move from negative to positive, you need to learn to look at the big picture vision. Because most of the times, when our mind has negative tendencies, it is perceiving threat.
By default, mind develops the defensive attitude and hence we find it so difficult to change our old habits by stepping out of our comfort zones.
The reality is that we must know how to override this old mental conditioning so we can consciously create certain level self-mastery over our thoughts and emotions.
How many hours have you spent doom-scrolling on Twitter or Instagram in the past week? If you haven’t already, chances are now is a good time to learn a little more about conscious content consumption and how it can help your mental health and well being.
How you consume media content is a very important element that affects your life choices, experiences and your growth because it directly affects your mental activity and condition your mind to build pattern of behaviors.
What we feed in our mind is directly reflected in our life. So, it is extremely important for you to feed your mind with the content that is going to help you elevate your consciousness and create a higher-level mind.
Most of the people are impulsively watching the content as they get addicted to the need of instant gratification. This impulse pulls people into that trap of scrolling the feeds of Instagram, watching random videos and feeding their mind with aimless consumption.
Now, the repercussion is not only the wastage of time but also the useless information storage in your subconscious mind. The quality of your subconscious mind is the number determining factor of your success in life.
If your mind is fed with information that creates conflict, emotional turbulence, instability and fear then it is extremely hard for you to explode your truest potential and lead a magnificent life.
You need to be mindful about both what you consume and how you consume it. It also means focusing on fully engaging on the media consumption while you do it, rather than using it to multitask or to distract yourself from other feelings or challenging situations.
Mind is subtle energy field and brain is mind in action. As the mind perceive a thought, it is reflected in brain as electric impulse looking to build neurochemistry for a certain action in the body.
When we know that each thought has a power to affect your brain wiring then why not to become conscious of our thought patterns to start thinking more consciously.
By using above mentioned insights to master your mind, you can break the old habits that cause you stress to newer ones that help you consciously create body-mind structure leading to more success and happiness thereby leading to stress free life.
