In one of my series on mind management I did mentioned reasons why the mind should be cautiously guarded while highlighting the risk factors of allowing the mind to wander into junkful thoughts resulting in all kinds of negative experiences because of the poor decision made which is a product of the faulty mind.
In this series, I will outline various ways to keep the mind in check to live a meaningful life.
In my years of research and studies on mind management, I observed that most writers had often streamlined these mind management techniques into four main headings which includes Vision and goal setting,Memorizing your goals or stock taking, Getting rid of limiting belief,Positive declaration and affirmation.
The human eyes and the mind works together in equal step. That is, it is what the eyes see that the mind interpret, process, think about, visualised and even act on.
Take for instance A man who consistently looked at a nude girl’s photos; he will consciously or unconsciously start receiving sexual signals through thoughts as a way of interpreting the photo because the eyes served as a mirror to the mind.
On the other hand, if a woman walked pass your front nude(naked) for instance and your eyes are closed maybe because you were meditating or praying, you won’t notice her appearance let alone to ponder on how her nude appearance . Thus her nude appearance won’t arouse any sexual thought in you because your eyes never sees it neither will your mind process it.
You may ask does cautioning the eyes means closing your eyes and walk like a blind man ? The answer is No. It simply means to exercise discipline in your mind that even when your eyes wander into such scene which you did never want to view, you have to condition your mind not to process that image that represent such scene.
That means you are to deliberately refuse to think about it or imagine it ever happened. This is because giving thought to it will either pollute your mind or nourish your mind negatively from thinking result orientedly.
It is only when your mind is edified that you talk of vision and goal setting as mentioned above as one of the general techniques for mind management .
Thus to manage your mind, you must watch what you see, process or ponder on because what you see forms an image in your subconscious mind which may either make or mar your vision as it keeps bubbling in your mind .
Its a common knowledge that information comes by hearing just as faith and fear comes by what you hear. The information you hear or received may either inspire positive vibes(determination) in you or create the fear of failing in your subconscious mind thereby preventing you from setting and actualizing your goals.
Information also have a way of altering your mood positively or negatively. That means what you choose to hear has a direct link to your happiness or otherwise as it affects your mind depending on your level of mental discipline.
That’s why someone who is sick of STDs can still be healthy and be happy when he/she is yet to have the knowledge of such ailment but the moment he/she hears it from the doctor fear will set in immediately and the person who once appeared to be healthy will start dying rapidly not solely because of the ailment but because of the information he/she received and the in ability to condition the mind against fear.http://Too much why leads to depression
Information they say is power but we never bother to ask what sought of power comes with it. Information either makes you happy or make you sad and depressed.
So to manage your mind and be productive in life and career you must of necessity be cautious of what you listen to and if peradventure you did listen to what you ought not to, you must of necessity condition your mind not to process or ponder on it.
Lack of this information cautiousness is the reason most people with brilliant business ideas never take steps because they have been told about people who failed, got depressed and frustrated doing such business without taking out time to research on those who succeeded in such business or why those who failed actually failed.
Thoughts are silent words that keeps the mind bubbling either negatively or positively. Its a bye product of what you see, hear, and feel. So you must discipline yourself about how you process your feelings, what you see and what you hear.
You must focus your mental power (thought) on becoming a successful person rather than thinking about how badly someone treats you.
