How To #Rewire Your Mind
How do you transform your mind? I used to overthink this, now I know there are a few simple tools:
- Repetition: Write down what you want to change. Record it sentence by sentence 3 times, then quietly read it to leave space on the recording. Then play the recording and and talk along. Say it out loud 3 times with the recording, then the 4th time repeat it out of your short-term memory.
- Challenge Yourself: Go beyond what is comfortable and familiar every day. It can be a small thing. You want to take the elevator? Take the stairs. You want to do 20 pushups? Do 23.
- Exercise Your Hero Muscle: Remind yourself everyday that you are capable of greatness. Our DNA is stored as a code made up of about 3 billion chemical base pairs and 99% of the DNA in all people is the same. This means you have a lot in common with the greats of history. Gratitude, empathy and compassion are in reality some of the qualities that reflect gigantic strength. Thus practicing them fortifies your hero muscle.
