If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know that I went through a complete mind renovation. If you were to speak to me last year, I was exactly like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. Now, I’m much more lively and expressive. This all happened because I came across Natalie Bacon. Because of her, I went on this wonderful journey towards conquering my mind and feeling like a boss. That being said, I decided to start a brand new series on my blog called Mind Buster, where I help you guys conquer your minds and make it work for you and your success.
What we don’t realize about our lives is that everything we do begins and ends with our minds. If you’ve ever wondered why things keep going south or why nothing seems to feel right, it’s because of your mind. In one of Natalie Bacon’s podcasts, she says, “your thoughts create your feelings. Your feelings create your actions. And your actions create your results.” Let that marinate for a second. It’s crazy because when I first heard this I had to replay the audio so many times. The fact that we are the ones that actually control our own emotions with our thoughts…MINDBLOWING.
Now let’s get into conquering our minds and achieving that boss mentality.
Thoughts Transformed (crafting thoughts like a boss)
Like the quote says, “your thoughts create your feelings.” This is why transforming your thoughts is the first step. Thinking negatively, doubting ourselves, hating certain things, all of this plays a role in how much we accomplish in our day to day lives. My biggest problem growing up was that I always had a negative comeback to everything. Which led me to always have negative emotions. There was always a ‘but’ after every single one of my sentences. To change this, I started switching it up. For example, instead of making my “but’s” negative I twisted the wording to be more positive/productive.
“I want to try ramen but … I need to buy the ingredients first.” instead of “I want to try ramen but I already know I won’t like it.”
“I want to write a book but … I need to start my outline now.” instead of “I want to write a book but I know it will never sell.”
The beauty about this practice is that in time it becomes a habit and your mind starts to shut down any negative thought and craft positive ones automatically. This leads us to our next step.
If you can believe, you can achieve, It’s as simple as that. Stop doubting yourself before you even get the chance to take that first step. I will say it again. Stop doubting yourself before you even get the chance to take that first step. Whatever you want in life, whatever you want to achieve, you CAN as long as you believe. Something I’ve been saying a lot lately is “If there’s a will there’s a way as long as we believe.” All these people that we look up to didn’t get to where they are without believing in themselves first. And if they can do it, why can’t we?
So every day, practice believing in yourself. Tell yourself “I can” multiple times a day and watch how your beliefs shift.
However, the key to all of this is in the next step.
Everything is a choice. Never forget that. You are the one that chooses to
Thoughts? Completely up to you.
Beliefs? Completely up to you.
Mindset? Completely up to you.
Success? Completely up to you.
You are in control of how everything in your life turns out by the choices that you make. You don’t need to think negatively, you just choose to. You don’t need to doubt yourself, you just choose to. It’s all a choice. Once I realized this, my whole life completely changed. I chose positivity, happiness, success, MYSELF. And I eliminated negativity and doubt. You can do this too by making that choice.
Conquering your mind is simple. It just takes time and strength. Remember,
“Your thoughts create your feelings. Your feelings create your actions. Your actions create your results.”
Do you want to feel like a boss? THINK LIKE ONE. Do you want to act like a boss? FEEL LIKE ONE? Do you want to be a boss? ACT LIKE ONE.
The world is in your hands and it is yours for the taking as long as you have the right mindset. With that being said, start putting this into practice and believe in it. No boss is great without the proper mindset.
Until next time,
Stay vibrant & embrace the gray.
