How the Dalai Lama focuses on the Negative
We hit positive, proactive goal-setting hard.
Almost as hard as he we hit self-talk.
That's because if you don't set goals for yourself, someone else will set them for you. And this could easily turn into negatives for you. Especially long term.
Turning a negative into a positive is the main topic in the section on 'Programming your Subconscious' on page 47 of the Mental Strength and Peak Performance training manual, where we outline the 7 major negative emotions that should be avoided.
You see, it is physically and mentally impossible for a positive and negative emotion to latch onto a thought in your head simultaneously. This is why we suggest you stay focused on your goals; training, competitive, business and life. Write them down. Carry them with you. Study them relentlessly.
Yes, it takes work to stay focused on the positive.
That's because being negative requires no effort as negative emotions voluntarily inject themselves into your thoughts (and this is very destructive).
But you have the power to control your emotions while making 'finding the positive' the habit. This trait alone will put you in the top percentile.
This is also a core topic of Dr Brittany Rummel in the Mental Strength and Brain Chemistry program. Dr Rummel has a PhD in Cognition and a masters and bachelors in biochemistry. She has the incredible ability of making this complex topic very simple and easy-to-understand -- literally empowering you to hard-wire positive, productive habits in your brain.
But Dr Rummel and MentalStrength.com are not alone in their efforts to address how to avoid negative emotions.
The great Dalai Lama has a wonderful short video (only 1 minute and 58 seconds) where he explains how to train our mind to tackle destructive emotions:
And as always...
If you need anything along the way, we are happy to help!
Until next week.
