The brain screws you…
This remedies the #1 mistake in thinking.
It’s so fundamental.
Yet it can be extremely “not easy” to do.
I won’t go into detail why.
We go into enough detail together in this video.
All I’ll say here is, so long as you’re thinking, why not be thinking about what you want?
Don’t want to drive to Kansas
So, where do you want to drive?
Waze doesn’t ask you for all the destinations you don’t want to go.
Only the one you do.
See my point?
All day every day many of our brains are thinking about what we don’t want.
Ugh, I hate my job.
Haven’t left the house in months.
It’s just so hard with the kids.
Certainly there’s many things in your life you don’t want.
So what do you want?
That’s the first rule of mind control
ONLY think about what you want.
Instead of allowing that brain to fixate on things you don’t want, train to flip it.
Now this isn’t some Pollyanna way of living where if the weather is crap you start looking for a silver lining.
It simply means, stop focusing on the crap weather, and get your mind thinking about your better days.
It’s super simple, right?
But perhaps because our brains are wired with a negativity bias, as I talk about in this video.
And many of us have been conditioned by those 70,000 mostly negative, redundant thoughts every day.
ONLY thinking about what you want isn’t always so easy to do.
First “Routine” in mind
If you’ve already watched the first video for the mind module in Upgrade YOU, you see we’re relying heavily on this first rule of mind control.
You’ve also seen how much this helps us shortcut all sorts of hard topics on the mind.
Whether you’re focused on remedial changes, such as stopping worrying.
Or generative changes, such as building more and more belief in your goals.
This first rule of mind control is powerful for steering your mind.
To get you oriented in the right direction.
For driving your goals.
And your actions.
In doing and getting what you want!
