How to get into a positive mindset
In a crisis, all of the fears and patterns that you’ve struggled with come out to play, big time.
This could be anxiety, overwhelm, self-doubt, scarcity around money, emotional eating or something else.
They can intensify and become consuming.
And then we say things like “I’m so overwhelmed by this situation.” or “I don’t have enough money” or “a big plate of cookies will make me feel better (even though I’ve been struggling with my weight)”.
Have you found yourself saying things like this?
You might think it’s the coronavirus that’s causing this. It’s not.
It’s your mind.
It’s the way your mind is thinking about it. Because only your thoughts can cause your feelings, NOT words that you read on a screen (the news).
Your mind is something that you can have gentle authority over. You can change your mindset, which, in turn changes your experience.
Even in a crisis.
Especially in a crisis.
Even if your bank account is at $0, you can decide that you’re always capable of making more money, even if it has to wait until tomorrow.
You can decide that you are grateful for the time to be at home, to learn to connect to your family in a deeper way, to remember what it’s like to have free time in your schedule.
You can decide that this is a historic moment to be in awe of (instead of fear) and that you’re grateful to be a part of it.
Here’s a video from a recent Facebook live where I share more info on how to generate a positive mindset.
Wishing you good health.
P.S. Most problems in life are caused by our own outdated thought patterns. This can be really hard to see but when you do, you can make massive change happen. The first step is to see what’s going on. Schedule a free session with me to take this first step.
