###When you can control your mind, your mind becomes a great friend. But if your mind controls you, it can be the greatest enemy for your life. So it becomes really important to know how to control your mind. You must have control over the door of your mind. You should allow only the thoughts that deserve a room in your mind and your life.
###Only the thoughts that make you happy and make your life peaceful deserve a room in your mind. Any kind of low feelings or sad thoughts must not have a place here. Remember, whatever you do in your life is somehow influenced by what you are thinking or what kind of thoughts your mind is producing. If you are unhappy for any reason, it’s a choice of your mind.
###So if you can stop your mind to control you, you can certainly improve the way you live your life. Here are some powerful ways that would help you recognize your true potential and control your mind at the same time.
“When you try to control your mind, remember, it’s much better not to control the way your mind works. You have your best life not when you can fully control your mind, but when you don’t even feel the need to control your mind. It’s the time when you know what your mind is doing and you believe what your mind is doing is the best for you.”
*******1 Believe that Your Thoughts are Yours.
Believe that your thoughts belong to you. You have the power to create and also destroy them. If some of your thoughts are creating problems for you, you must destroy it and create some good thoughts in place of those bad thoughts. Believe that you can change any of your thoughts and you have the power to control your thoughts.
Any changes that come to your mind is not created by someone outside, but is created by the person inside. If you want to be happy and calm even in the worst situation, you can do it by just controlling the way your mind works. Don’t let your mind control you. Rather control your mind to do what you want it to do.
******2 Sometimes Talk to Yourself Aloud.
Sometimes talk to yourself aloud as if you were another person. It would make you realize how some other person could take you when you talk to them. Knowing yourself perfectly is the primary step to be someone you want to be. If you want to control the person who is inside you, you have to be someone more powerful than the person controlling you from inside.
Don’t forcefully change yourself to be someone you are not. Because you can’t. Just change your thoughts and the way you react to situations. Focus on what’s right and what’s wrong for your life. Don’t try to control the situations. Control yourself, learn to breath and find your way out of the situation.
******3 Concentrate On Negative Thoughts.
Nurture your mind with great thoughts. Your thoughts create your life. How your life would be entirely depends on how you think your life should be. If you keep positive thoughts, your life will produce positive results. But if you keep negative thoughts, your life will produce negative results. It all depends on the way you think about yourself.
Concentrate on negative thoughts and change it to the positive ones. Once you can replace your negative thoughts with positive ones, you will start having positive results. Then you won’t even feel the need to control your mind. Because a positive mind doesn’t need to controlled. It’s required only when you keep some negative thoughts.
******4 Imagine What You Want in Your Life.
Even though we don’t have the power to choose where we came from, we always have the power to choose where we go from here. Remember, it’s your life and you control your destiny. Make it clear to yourself what you really want in your life. Make it a goal and forget every other things. Don’t let your small mind control your thoughts and tell you that your dreams are too big.
Remember, controlling your mind doesn’t mean that you have to force your mind to do something your mind doesn’t really want to do. Make it clear that it just means making your mind so strong that it can understand the difference between what’s good and what’s bad for you. That’s it. Don’t force your mind to do something your mind doesn’t love. Let your mind decide what’s good for you, using your positive thoughts and let your mind love what you want it to do.
******5 Practice Positive Thinking Everyday.
A lot of pain that we are dealing with everyday are really only thoughts. If you are happy, your happiness is the result of some happy thoughts. And if you are unhappy, it’s also the result of some unhappy thoughts that only you create. Now if you can control the way your mind create these thoughts, you are going to be happy most of the time. The only way to make it possible is to practice positive thinking everyday..
Positive thoughts can create positive changes in your life. But negative thoughts will destroy your life gradually. Don’t think about what’s happening to you. Think about how you are reacting to the situations. You have no control over what’s happening to you. Trying to control what happens to you will get you nowhere. Just control your attitude towards what happens to you.
******6 Cherish What You Have in Your Life.
Many times why people want to control their mind is that they feel what they have is not enough. They get more attracted to what others have. Now if they feel that it’s not for them, they try to control their mind to forget all about it. It’s a wrong choice and a wrong way of thinking. Because sometimes, it makes you unhappy even though you can control your mind.
Focus your attention to common sense. What others have is not as important as what you have. Don’t compare the things you have with the things others have. Compare the things you have with the things you had. Focus your attention to yourself, not others. You don’t know their life, but surely know yours. Concentrate on yourself and your own life. You surely need to be strong enough to control your mind. But don’t make it a task of your everyday life.
Life is very complicated. And depending on situations, sometimes you may feel the need to control your mind. But the lesser you try for it is better. You shouldn’t control your mind everyday of your life and stop it to do something it loves to do. It will make you unhappy more than it makes you happy. Whatever you do in your life should produce some positive results. Ultimately, your happiness is more important than anything else.
