Why should you retrain your mind?
Without any doubt, your mind is powerful enough to achieve anything you want.
But with all your capabilities, you find it hard to succeed. In fact, many questions bother in your mind every second of your life.
Why? Why can’t I win? Am I not deserving of becoming happy?
The truth is that you might not know what causes of your failure. It is not about your friends, your parents, or your current life circumstances.
The reason behind most of your failures is your mind.
You see, the human mind is trained to always think about safety. It prevents you from engaging any scary or dangerous activities just to keep you safe.
As a result, it always seeks ways to make you comfortable. But there’s only one problem. You can’t achieve your goals by living in your comfort zone.
Success requires hard work, dedication, sacrifices, patience, and self-discipline which your mind would normally consider scary.
That’s why if you want to be successful, you need to retrain your mind to embrace hardship. Retrain your mind to love being uncomfortable.
The power that you have right now is the power to make a decision. You are free. That freedom allows you to make a difference. But the same freedom can make you a prisoner.
Every day you make decisions. You decide to remain in your job and deal with your abusive boss. You decide to live with an abusive relationship. And you decide to do things that you are not passionate about.
Why? Because you simply follow your mind. Your mind dictates you all the time. And if you listen to it without question, you’ll become lame.
Procrastination is a product of your mind. Because it simply does not want to put you on hardship. Instead, it commands you to stay away from work.
But being comfortable will ruin you. There’s no success in it. Look around, the ones who really successful are the people who do the challenge. The average people, on the other hand, stay in places that provide them comfort.
The successful people control their lives, while the average ones are controlled by others.
When you look at these two groups of people, you see two faces of circumstances: hardship and comfort. Which one would you choose?
It is simple though. If you want to remain an average (without any considerable success in your life) then be comfortable throughout your life.
And if you want to be successful, simply follow challenges and hardships. But you can only do it if you retrain your mind.
Changing your mind involves challenging conventional teachings and beliefs. You should stop thinking that the school system is the only choice you have to achieve financial success.
Stop thinking that if you do not finish college, your life will be doomed. And stop thinking that you should please everybody.
Rather, start to follow your own trail. Make your own life the way you want it.
Be the best that you can be. Don’t worry about success. If you love what you do and give your very best, success will follow.
To conclude, if you want to be successful, you need to retrain your mind. Avoid being comfortable. Do what is necessary without complaining. Don’t blame anyone. Be responsible for your action. And ultimately, be persistent.
The light always awaits you at the end of the tunnel.
I hope this will help.
