Old Thought Patterns and Sabotage
When we commit towards a personal goal, old thought patterns can sabotage us. When this happens, inner conflicts arise. This can be a major problem for anyone whether it’s in their personal life or business life.
Too often we are ready to make a change but negative thoughts creep in, reminding you of past times a great idea never worked out. It’s really crippling. But what’s even more crippling is that we actually believe it. A negative-conditioned mind will always find a way to bring up a past experience where you dared to try something new and failed.
Question and Challenge Those Thoughts
So here I am one day a couple of years ago after posting a Craigslist ad for my business. I pulled in quite a few leads and sat down for my phone calls. The first three gave me an earful about their problems and two of them blamed for their problems.
All I did was listen and I barely opened my mouth, yet it was my fault. Then these weird odd thoughts came. I started thinking about a time when I blamed everyone for my own issues except myself. All of a sudden I was pointing the finger at myself for the three calls that went horrid. So I sipped my coffee and said: “Wait man, this has nothing to do with me. I just happened to catch three people by sheer luck who were really unqualified leads and who were in tough spot in their lives in that moment.
I didn’t trust the mind which snuck a little sabotage into my thoughts.
The Foundation of a Positive Mindset
One way to help delete inner conflicts from your mind is to immerse yourself into positive thinking. But it’s not just about chanting some mantra like “I can do it, I can do it.” That won’t get you very far.
The best way to become a positive thinker is to surround yourself around positive situations and positive people and always work on your personal development.
If you are constantly flooding your thoughts with positivity, then when a situation like above comes up, the unconscious mind will instinctively challenge and question the validity of those negative thoughts.
Once you get used to combatting these, it’s much faster to move forward in the blink of an eye… so you don’t miss a beat.
