Truly, as a man thinketh, so is he! Thoughts are things. And what we think about we bring about. The great news is that we can train the brain to think in the best way possible. You can alter your thinking patterns and thereby alter your life. Just like you exercise a muscle or practice an instrument, you and I need to practice thinking well.
How to Train Your Brain
Today, I want to talk about TRAINING your BRAIN!
This is, probably, the most important skill and practice you’ll ever have in your life! I know that is a huge bold statement! but , believe me, it really is. Because:
“As a man thinketh in his heart so he is he”
In “As a Man Thinketh”, –James Allen– clearly points that the way you think affects your health, your circumstances, your character, your relationship, your purity, your spirituality, your attitude, your thinking habits, your thinking patterns and almost everything. It, simply, shapes your whole life.
Now, the great news is that you can actually TRAIN your BRAIN! It is just like you would practice an instrument, like you would practice your skill, your hobby, like you do for work and like any other skill you want to develop. And to be great at anything, you’ll have to train and practice a lot. And it is totally the same with your mind, you have to practice and train your brain. Moreover, that will make the biggest difference in your life!
Let me tell you a little bit of my story as far as brain training. Well, I grew up with all the limiting beliefs. I grew up with the negative ‘Endophasia’!
Endophasia: [en-doh-fey-zhuh, -zhee-uh, -zee-ey] internal speech with no audible vocalization.
So I was telling things to myself like:
‘You are ugly’ / ‘You are fat’ / ‘You are a loser’ / ‘You are stupid’ / ‘You can’t do that/ you can’t do this’ / ‘It is just my luck’
But this is not the right thing. Do not ever identify yourself with that. You have to train your brain to think differently because there is a huge correlation between IDENTITY and BEHAVIOR! In other words, if you tell yourself you are something, you will do it!
There is a great scientific term called ‘Anticipatory Anxiety’. It means that when you anticipate something, you think about it so much, you actually make it happen! Thus, you have to train your mind to think positively first about yourself and next about how you are going to perform.
Train Your Brain as One of Your Muscles
If you want to get in great shape, you have to train your muscles consistently and push them hard. Right! Well, it is the same with your mind! Whether you want to memorize something, whether you want to become a positive thinker, whether you want to master how your mind approach to problems, and whether you want to become enthusiastic and optimistic, you have to train your brain.
I want you every day to pick something positive and start saying it to yourself consistently. I want you to catch yourself when you are thinking negatively and replace that. The mind can only handle one thought a time, so thought replacement is the best way to do this. So start replacing negative thoughts with positive once. And this is a part of brain training.
This Can Literally Transform Your Life
You can literally transform your habits to think differently. Wherever you feel weak, say that you are going to improve, you are going to be stronger and better. Just train your whole thinking and start doing it with positive thoughts.
You can literally TRAIN your BRAIN to think POSITIVELY, to respond APPROPRIATELY and I PROMISE YOU this will literally TRANSFORM your LIFE! So train your brain to think the way you want it to think. How? By consistently and repeatedly thinking about positive thoughts that you know will bring you great success.
