Keeping a healthy state of mind is absolutely critical to success in performance demands on every level, in every aspect of life. You’ve heard the phrase “Attitude is Everything!” Well, it is!
In a world of high energy performance demands in every field, a full schedule can quickly become chaotic without proper planning on a physical and mental level.
You’ve heard the saying that all activity is 90% mental and only 10% physical, well that’s true! It’s true of athletes, and it’s also true for you. Whether you have a tedious desk job in which you must pay close attention to numbers and detail, or your have a physically demanding job of a construction worker or physical trainer, you must be mentally prepped and rejuvinated each and every day.
How does one go about attaining a healthy state of mind?
The answer is simple – Make the choice.
As easy as it may sound, it really is that easy! Only you hold the power over controlling your thoughts. It’s extremely important to mentally train yourself to reroute your thinking when your mind becomes filled with doubt and negativity. Make a concious effort to replace negative with positive. When it comes down to it, your key is GRATITUDE. Be thankful even in the most difficult situations. As hard as that may seem, if you are living then you still have a purpose!
What are some practices to help train my mind toward positive thinking?
- Prayer / Spiritual Feeding
- Affirmations / Guided Imagery
How can I put what I learn in to practice?
Start with a focus and practice! Practice requires action not thought! In other words, put your thoughts in to action!
Become really good at the first practice that feels good to you (you’re more likely to follow through with incorporating it in to your daily routine). Then, continue to build and set goals for yourself each week. Continue incorporating “you time”, “family time”, “friend time”, “God time” every single day. We all know that work is a given. Particularly if you’re in a position in your job or career that you don’t like, make sure you emphasize your gratitude in the areas that tend to give you the most anxiety.
Practice these things, and soon you will find open doorways that will lead you to a more fulfilled position, whether personally or professionally or BOTH!
