"Where focus goes, energy flows." – Tony Robbins
Do you find yourself worrying about the same event, conversation, or circumstance? Is it impossible to get out of your head? What about waking up with the thoughts for more than one day?
Many coaches, strategists and thought leaders talk about the power of mindset and controlling your thoughts. Why? What I have learned is that the more “energy” you give that thought, the more “momentum/power” it takes on – continuing to give it life. You feed it; it lives.
A few weeks ago, I spent the better part of 3 days in a Tony Robbins, Unleash the Power Within (UPW) Virtual Event. The overriding message was to put your mind in the right “state” every minute of every day. If you are having thoughts that take you to the “rabbit hole” – stay, there for just 90 seconds and move on. End of story. No excuses. Ugh…
“When you keep on losing with the path you are choosing, it’s time to let go of the someone I used to know.” ~ Zac Brown Band
Where did I learn to jump on this wheel? Growing up? As an adult? Once I had kids? Is the motherboard in my head in crash mode? Truly, I cannot answer these questions.
Continuing to go around and around with my thoughts, actions and activities only gets me back to where I started and wasting a whole bunch of good energy. I just love the Ferris Wheel example – why? Because sometimes, I find that I take people with me on this journey. NO MORE!
If I am stuck on a thought or situation, instead of taking someone along for the ride, I am going around once and then jumping off. There will be times that I need advice and I am ok with my inner circle of family and friends to help me. If I show compassion, love, and respect then I’ll “bless and release” to move forward.
I encourage each one of you to read more on this theory, test yourself and begin to make small changes in your mindset. When you do, your energy will focus on those things that bring you love, joy, happiness, and fulfillment. Life (especially with our current environment) is too short. We need to be mindful of our thoughts and take them in the forward direction. Ferris Wheels are for fun not for thoughts!
Sending you hugs,
