4 Ways to Elevate Your Thoughts and Break Mindset Barriers

Published

Have you ever considered the enormous power thoughts have on your life? Why do we so often forget that building a healthy mindset is stronger than any other attribute of human power? Our mind doesn’t know limits if we don’t create them, and you know what the best part is? We can think the way we choose to.

I bet you’ve heard at least one story about some young man who came from the low-income family with basic education, no money whatsoever, no resources and no influences. How did he make it to the top and become one of the best influencers with a fat bank account and happy family? It was the proper mindset which created this life for him.

Here are 4 ways to enhance your thoughts and break these illusionary barriers in our mind:

1. Choose your thoughts

This is the most fundamental step, yet so many of us don’t do it. It is easy to slip and think in a negative way. Many people choose negative thoughts over positive since it is easier to complain then do something about it. Since you are reading this, I am convinced you aren’t this person.

The best tool to use for controlling your thoughts is conscious awareness. What thoughts dominate your mind? Do you often catch yourself thinking in negative terms? If yes, change it instantly. Simply choose thoughts that you know excite you, make you feel good, something that puts a smile on your face. By everyday practice, it will eventually become a habit.

“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.” – Dalai Lama

2. Take responsibility for your feelings

Feelings are even more important than thoughts since we think based on how we feel. People adopted this misconception that the way they feel depends on people or circumstances. Well, this is just a big lie which isn’t true. You and I are the only ones here in charge of the feelings we have. No one has the power to make you feel a certain way as long as you don’t allow them to.

By taking responsibility for your mood and happiness, you’ll free yourself from the nonsense of having a bad day for no reason. Let people be the way they want to be and mind your business. Focus on the positive things in your life and smile for no reason.

 

3. Support your mind with motivational and inspirational material

Books and audios are a great way to help motivate yourself or change your perspective and open your mind. Reading and learning about yourself or the area of your expertise gives you valuable knowledge for improvement.

I want to recommend you an app called Scribd. It is an excellent app with thousands of different books and audiobooks which you can read or listen to right from your phone or tablet. There is a little subscription monthly fee, and you are ready to go. I found it very convenient since there are all many incredible books and audios for personal development from the best influencers. You’ll definitely want to check it out.

“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” – Joseph Addison

4. Get real with yourself

Do you want to spend the rest of your life feeling powerless? Don’t you get angry even thinking about it? I do, and that’s why we have to refuse to live this way. Get real with who you are and what you demand from yourself. Those dreams and thoughts you have had about a fantastic future will become a reality if you understand that the mindset is everything.

Your past doesn’t define you. You determine who you are based on thoughts circulating in your mind. Whatever you create, will become a reality. Choose the empowering thoughts. Use visualizing your dreams as fuel to keep moving forward and break any limits. I know that this isn’t an overnight job, and it may be challenging but to have success and true happiness in life, you have to break barriers, not build them up.

    Like you said, conscious awareness. I usually use my bad feelings as an indicator that I need to 1. Take responsibility for my thoughts and feelings 2. Change my thoughts (combat them if I need to,) so I can change my reality. I constantly choose to fill my mind with positive affirmations. Even the things I clearly know I don’t believe, I give myself positive mantras in response to those negative self thoughts. And I also breathe in and out with my inhale focusing on “I” and my exhale focusing on “can.”

I was sixteen years old when I first felt the pure exhilaration and profound sense of purpose through political activism. I was a junior in high school, elected as a student member of our district’s school board in Rock Island, Illinois. At my very first meeting, I was faced with a disturbing agenda item: budget cuts. Our economy was in the tank, revenues were down and the school board had no choice but to cut sports, music, arts programs and lay-off teachers.  (more…)
