Train your brain to succeed.
Training your brain to succeed in life cannot be easy. It’s hard! This is the reason why most people are not successful. They only want to do things that are easy. But the problem is that easy habits are nonsense.
Look around you. The vast majority is following the conventional norm – that is doing what others are doing. Only a few who have realized that success is built on hardship, tears, bruises, frustrations, blood, and pain.
Success is impossible for many people. Why? Because they are afraid of the unknown. They are afraid to fail. They can’t stand in the noisy confusion of life. As a result, they just let themselves flow with the wind.
But if you really want to succeed, train your mind. Your mind is the most powerful machine that you have. It creates an amazing portrait. And if you are able to hone its power, everything will just easily fall before you.
Maybe you are wondering how to train your brain. Although there are thousands of advice you can read on the internet, in this article I want to share my personal techniques with you.
Train your brain using these steps
Before discussing the following, let me remind you that there’s no easy way to succeed. Life will always test you, beat you, and throws you away if you let it. So to build yourself with an overwhelming success, you have to consider the following:
1. Stop thinking it’s easy
One of the reasons why most people fail in their goals is because they think it’s easy to succeed. The people who lost the battle are the people who think that winning a war is easy. And because they think that everything would easily fall under their feet, they would not prepare themselves. As a result, they often stunned and overwhelmed by their enemy.
Life is a constant battle. Every now and then is a struggle. Life tests your endurance, consistency, guts, strength, etc. Thus, if you are not prepared, you’ll get knock down.
However, training does not only involve physical preparation. Training your brain must be part of it. Every great player of any sport knows this. The competition does not only require physical fitness but also mental toughness. That’s why athletes are taught to become mentally tough.
The game is not easy. You should not relax. Keep working. Train your mind to think that way. So that when the battle comes, you’re ready.
2. Think like you’re already a loser
Many people would give the advice to think positive. You must always think that you will win. That’s a good advice. It helps you build self-confidence and motivation. The only problem with this advice is that, when you experience failure, it will be easy for you to quit. Why? Because you can’t stand with the frustration. What is happening is a complete opposite of what you believe in.
The best alternative to this advice is training your brain to think that you’re a loser. It works well for me. If I think that I’m a loser, I feel like there’s nothing left to lose. So whatever happens, it keeps me going. I can easily absorb failure because I am accustomed that way. Fear now is the language that I no longer care about.
If you have nothing to lose, you’ll have no hesitation. It gives you strength to push more, hit more, and win more. That hunger inside you helps you unleash the beast that you been hiding for years. Ultimately, you’ll become the greatest conqueror of dreams.
3. Don’t feel pity for yourself
One of the amazing habits of highly successful people is the ability to ignore pain. They don’t consider others’ negative opinion. They don’t waste time to feel sorry for their mess. Instead, they get up from the ground and start again. But it’s not easy. It needs a long practice. If you are determined to succeed, you need to train your mind this way.
Self-pitying is a total waste of time. If you look at people who carry their grudges with them, they are miserable. They can’t let go of their past. As a result, the past always haunts them. The sad thing is that they have no idea why they feel the emotional struggle. Their view of the world is negative. Again, they have no idea that their perception affects their reality.
If you want to stay away from this trap, “train your brain”. Train your brain to be tough. Learn to ignore pain. Develop mental toughness. Always remember that it’s not easy – that you’re a loser. A loser who does not know how to lose any more!
