How to be the boss of your brain, rather than letting it master you.
This is common problem for every human being.According to Bhagwat Gita Sri Krishna advised Arjun that Mind control is very difficult but not impossible. You may not like what your mind does but accepting that negative thoughts and feelings that you can’t control them can allow you to focus on your actions in the present moment.So you can move ahead with your most important goals without getting all fouled up. You don’t necessarily have to like the thoughts or agree with them – you just have to let them be there in the background of your mind.“We are what we repeatedly do.” To this, I would add “We become what we repeatedly think.Realize thoughts are just thoughts.”You cannot keep a bird from flying over your head; what you can do is prevent it from building a nest in your hair.”
Do everything opposite to what you really want to do and force your mind to act only that way. Your mind will shout and scream and kick and will try to kill you but you should be determined. Try this for a couple of weeks and you will see a vibrant change in yourself. You will realise that this is the only way to tame your naughty mind.
“Eventually, your cognitive skills will wane and thinking and memory will be more challenging, so you need to build up your reserve,” says Dr. John N. Morris, director of social and health policy research at the Harvard-affiliated Institute for Aging Research. “Embracing a new activity that also forces you to think and learn and requires ongoing practice can be one of the best ways to keep the brain healthy.”
Life can be confusing and intense, and that’s why training your mind to be stronger than your feelings is crucial.If you wanted bigger biceps, you’d increase the weight at the gym. And if you want more brain stamina, you need to systematically increase how long you make it work.
To be a successful CEO of your own mind, you need to listen, get to know your employee, acknowledge its contribution, realize it’s nature, make peace with it, implement a employee development program, and It will repay you with a lifetime of loyaly and service.Your brain has the ability to learn and grow as you age a process called brain plasticity but for it to do so, you have to train it on a regular basis.
