Change Your Mind, Change Your Life

Have you ever stopped to think about the life you want to create for yourself? Surely, everyone has, right? Do you believe that you have the power to create the life you want, or do you feel that you are living by default? In this article, we will be discussing how when your change your mind, you change your life. Additionally, we’ll discuss why you must pay very close attention to what comes into your mind.

Your mind is an extremely powerful tool that can be used to create magical experiences, solve complex problems, and keep you out of danger. But unfortunately, some people (well, more than some), go through life as a victim to their mind. They barely touch the surface of it's capabilities. In fact, many people lose a battle with their mind more than any other person or thing.

George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw

"Only 2% of people truly think, 3% think they think, and 95% would rather die than think."

This quote highlights the importance of taking the time to truly think about the life you want to create for yourself. Many people live on autopilot, going through the same habits and thought processes day in and day out, with their heads buried in their phones. They are not truly thinking about the life they want to create.

Stand guard at the doorway of your mind

When you live on autopilot, you are more susceptible to being influenced by others. This isn’t always bad, but it often will be. People that are more empowered than you, or those that are perceived to be above you, will inject their beliefs, values, and opinions into your life. (And no, I don’t literally mean injecting you). When this happens, you begin to live life under other people’s belief systems. As a result, this leads to a life of default. When you live by default, you are not living the life you truly want to live.

It is important to understand that you have some degree of control over what you allow to come into your mind. Your conscious mind will have thousands and thousands of thoughts every day. However, your subconscious mind cannot reject information. It takes on information through certain conditions – emotion, repetition, and lower brainwave states, such as before bed and early in the morning. Because of this, it’s important to be mindful of the things you are watching on TV and the conversations you are having with others. That which you allow into your subconscious mind will influence how you feel about yourself, change your belief systems, and ultimately change your actions and the results in your life.

Designing your best life

So, how do we move forward if we are feeling stuck or unsure of how to create the life we want? The first step is to have clarity around what is important to you and to understand your core values. Understanding your core values will help you make decisions that align with your true self and the life you want to create. If you need help finding your core values, you can grab a copy of my free core values worksheet.

When you are living on autopilot, you tend to just go along with whatever is happening in your life and don't take the time to truly think about yourself, your wants, and your needs. This can make it difficult to learn about yourself and create the life you truly want.

To create a life on your own terms, it is important to take the time to reflect on your current habits and thought processes. Are you living on autopilot, or are you taking the time to truly think about the life you want to create? Do you allow the opinions and beliefs of others to influence your decisions? Or, are you making decisions that align with your core values?

Practice Mindfulness

One of the ways to take control of your life and create the life you want is by practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of being present and aware in the moment, without judgment. It allows you to take control of your thoughts and emotions, and to make decisions that align with your true self. It also allows you to be more aware of the things you allow into your subconscious mind.

Set meaningful goals

Another way to take control of your life is by understanding the importance of setting goals and then acting on them. Setting goals allows you to focus on what you truly want, and to take actionable steps toward achieving those goals. It also helps you to stay accountable and motivated.

However, many people struggle with goals for various reasons. One of the common factors is that there is a deep lack of connection to the bigger picture and vision. You know how to fix this, right?

Question the things you learn and hear from others. Become mindful of the things you allow into your subconscious mind. With a strong mindset and a clear understanding of your values, you can take control of your life and create a life on your terms. It's important to note that the process of creating the life you want is not a one-time thing. The process is a continuous path of self-awareness, reflection and taking the appropriate action steps.
