This video explains in a simple and understandable way how the mind works. If we want to control the mind so that we can create a positive and empowering mindset, we need to know how the mind works first.
The mind is completely in your control, and you get to decide where you place your attention and what you choose to focus on. Remember that the mind is also trying to keep you safe and in the comfort zone (even if it is not serving or positively impacting you.) That is why you need to understand that when self-doubt filters into your thoughts when you want to break free from the comfort zone, this is just a survival mechanism of the mind and you need to identify the negative thoughts and choose more empowering ones to propel you towards your future you.
What you focus on, you become, so become extremely strict and determined to focus on what you want, and not on what you don’t.
