Have you ever wondered why some people are constantly plagued by negative thoughts and experience limiting emotional states like depression, procrastination, doubt and laziness daily? They may be talented and intelligent people but every time they attempt to achieve their goals, they start to lose focus, procrastinate, fail to follow through and give up. Have you experienced this yourself? I know I have in the past!
Successful people are able to bring out the best in themselves and achieve their goals because they are constantly driven by positive thoughts and powerful emotional states like passion, enthusiasm, confidence and motivation. No matter how hopeless or bad the situation may seem, they are able to reframe their minds to see solutions and opportunities. No matter how many times they get rejected or how many times life knocks them down with failure, they keep coming back with more determination and excitement than ever before. You know that it is not the events around us that determine our success or failure. Rather, it is how we respond to those events that determine whether we come out a winner or a loser.
Once I learnt how to program myself for wealth and success, I saw the dramatic changes within myself and started achieving my goals so much more easily… from topping the National University of Singapore, to Building a Successful Business and becoming financially free.
If you are the first kind of person who constantly experiences and attracts negative thought and events in your life, it is because you have PROGRAMMED your mind to be that way. That’s right! If you are constantly broke, it is because you have programmed yourself to be broke. If you are constantly attracting wealth, it is because you have programmed your mind to be rich. If you are constantly happy and cheerful, it’s because you have programmed yourself to be happy. if you are constantly depressed and angry, you too have wired your mind to be that way.
One way many people program themselves for failure is through COMPLAINING. Complaining literally re-wires your brain for failure and conditions your body for ill health! Let me explain how this works. Our brain is made of billions of brain cells called ‘neurons’. Every time, we have a thought, electro-chemicals are transmitted from one neurone to another over a ‘bridge’ known as a ‘synapse’.
Every time this electrochemical is transmitted, the synapses grow closer together in order to decrease the distance the electrical charge has to cross. Our brain rewires its own circuitry, physically changing itself, to make it easier and more likely to think that same thought in the future. In other words, having a particular thought makes it easier for you to have that thought again.
The more you complain and think negatively, the more likely your mind will think negative thought in the future, Not only do repeated negative thoughts make it easier to think yet more negative thoughts, they also make it more likely that negative thoughts will occur in your mind randomly.
When your brain is firing off these negative thought patterns, your brain release a chemical known as ‘cortisol’ which weakens your immune system, resulting in memory loss, increased blood pressure and greater likelihood of heart attack and cancer. So complaining literally kills your mind and your body! The complete opposite happens when you think of positive thoughts like love, gratitude and happiness.
The good news is that you can learn how to re-programme your mind easily with the right NLP (Neuro-linguistc Programming) and Success Condition strategies. Over the last 15 years, I have been helping thousands of people from all walks of life develop the mental patterns of excellence through the Patterns of Excellence Program and through my book, Master Your Mind, Design Your Destiny.
