Your mind is as responsible for your failures as much as it is for your success because it rules your thoughts and actions. If you’re able to exert the power of will during your toughest moments, you’ll be surprised as to how many times you would come out on top of the situation you feared at one point.
These are some simple but key mindfulness building tricks that anyone can and should apply to their lives every day; especially if when you find yourself stuck in a position of confusion, fear or self-doubt in any situation.
Visualise success before the thought of failure inflicts your mind
By visualising yourself completing the task at hand repeatedly, over and over again, you create what is called a ‘winning mindset’ before going forward and getting into the task at hand.
If you can see yourself overcoming the hurdles you face before undertaking the task at hand you’re more likely to overcome them without a shadow of a doubt because you’re mind has already been trained to do so.
Use the power of a mantra that you create for yourself and recite it in a tricky situation
‘Mind chatter’ can block you from taking decisive action when you’re stuck in a precarious situation. For instance, if you believe and resonate with the saying “whatever doesn’t kill me will only me me stronger”, repeat it as many times as you need in a situation that demands it.
Reciting a positive mantra helps overhaul the ‘mental chatter’ that holds you back or creates feelings of negativity by trick your brain into believing that your only option is to keep going and there’s no point looking back anyway.
Detach yourself from the outcome to accomplish the impossible
Learning how to detach yourself from the result of what you set out to accomplish can be one most powerful ways to get through any task that you’re hesitant to undertake and come back from any setback even stronger.
As you long as you do the best you can in everything you partake in you needn’t take the outcome personally.Instead, walk away knowing that there’s nothing more you can give than you already have at that moment.
