Today your most important job is managing the thoughts in your head.
From your thoughts come your emotions.
From your emotions come your actions.
From your actions come your results.
If your head is full of fearful thoughts you will, without question, create your reality from fear, which serves no one, especially you. To quote one of my favorite lines in Point Break (and I have a LOT of them) "Fear causes hesitation and hesitation causes your greatest fear to come true".
Here are a few ideas to help manage your mind, today when things are crazy nuts and tomorrow when things are just the regular kind of nuts.
1. Write down every thought in your head, really sweep every stinky one out from the dark corners of your mind. You can’t manage your mind if you don’t recognize what is feeding it.
2. Go through each thought ask yourself “is this a fact?” If it is not an absolute irrefutable FACT then draw a line through it. That thought has now been nullified. Write a new TRUE thought to replace it and practice that thought throughout the day.
The world has gone crazy. This is a temporary problem that we are all working through together.
3. Turn off the news and refrain from indulging in fear-based chatter. Your brain is very sensitive to potential danger and by watching/reading/hearing about all the opinions and worst case scenarios you are giving your brain a nonstop stream of DANGER signals. When your brain thinks you are in danger it sets off a very effective and explosive chain of internal reactions to protect you. Right now you are pickling your internal organs in all the stress hormones and chemicals that are released when your brain believes you are in danger. You HAVE to turn off the firehose of fear.
4. Be of service to others.
