How do you keep yourself focused in very intense moments and on a day-to-day basis?

 

Our mind is a mighty instrument whose primary purpose is to keep us alive. Every day we have more than 60 000 thoughts, and a person who can not control these thoughts loses a lot of energy or can end up badly.
I remember that a few years ago, I had 1000 thoughts simultaneously and was jumping from one idea to another. My concentration was terrible, and I was always creating negative scenarios.
After I learned and started to use this simple NLP Technique, my life drastically changed.

When I was overwhelmed by my own thoughts, I asked myself these questions:

  • What problem do I solve right now with my thoughts?
  • What do I obtain?
  • What is the effect of my thoughts?
  • Are my thoughts creating a strategy to improve my life?

If the answer to these questions is a strategy, you use the mind rationally and analytically. If the answer is negative and there is no problem to be fixed, your mind creates scenarios because of an emotional need, and there is no control.

On a day-to-day basis, after you observe your thoughts, you have two options: stop the thoughts or identify the emotional need. This awareness alone puts you in a position of control, and you can start building a strategy to free yourself.

The idea is to control your mind, not the contrary.
A perfect example describes the life of some people, especially older people: many say that time is moving faster. In reality, these people relive past events or are concerned about the future. They stay in their minds so much and do not have time to do things. They do not have time to live in the present or enjoy life.

Remember that the mind is one of the most valuable tools you have, and I hope you start using these questions to stop the monkey circus from your head.

  • What problem do I solve right now with my thoughts?
  • What do I obtain?
  • What is the effect of my thoughts?
  • Are my thoughts creating a strategy to improve my life?
