Your mindset is more important than you think

By Katherine Hood on May 15, 2024


As cliché as that sounds, your mindset actually is more important than you might think.

Think about it, us funny little humans have a tendency to make decisions based on a myriad of emotions such as fear, anger, and frustration. These emotions can cloud our judgment and make it difficult for us to see things clearly. Taking a moment to step back and approach decisions with a calm and rational mindset is crucial, instead of allowing our emotions to control our choices. Deeply understanding what creates your emotions and being clear on what your values are, what's most important to you, and what create peace of mind will enable you to live your life from the inside out. Life will appear to be unfolding for you, instead of happening to you.

The most important skill to master for a fulfilling life is your own emotional regulation.

When we regulate our own emotions, taking ownership of them, we can make more informed and thoughtful decisions that are in line with our true desires and values.

Next time you're faced with a tough decision, take a moment to pause, reflect, and make sure you're making a choice from a place of clarity and understanding. If this seems hocus-pocus, or "hard to do" that's your sign to get help and support from a thinking partner like me. You can't fix what you can't see, and likely there's some thoughts, stories, beliefs and automatic thoughts that are preventing you from seeing your blind spots.

When we attach ourselves to thoughts and emotions, we become consumed with searching for proof it's real.

What's the antidote to feeling sad, lonely, and suffering? How do you develop a better mindset? By not focusing on who you currently are, but rather looking up to who you can be. We humans need and thrive in problem solving. Think about it, when you're sitting idle what happens? Our outdated brain loves to manufacture and create the illusion there is a "problem" often not in us, in other people, places, things, situations and circumstanced outside of us.

What's the truth?

There is no problem, there's nothing wrong with you either, it's a thought created illusion, story creating, distorted thinking issue because the brain loves to feel needed, important and most of all protect it's human from anything that might cause it harm. I wants to feel useful and it's best friend Ego comes to the rescue.

That's right your brain doesn't care if you are happy, successful, look sexy, if you're in love, have wealth, get that job promotion, or if you are in a high tax bracket. It only cares if you are safe and so it's constantly, twice a second in fact looking for danger.

If your thoughts have the power to make you feel any negative way your thoughts can very easily have the power to make you feel a positive way as well.

Knowing how your emotions are created and how you simple your brain is, this will give you the crib notes to having a life that you dream of.
