How To Break Through Mental Barriers
There are so many different mental barriers that stop us from doing the things we want. They could be labeled as anything from depression to anger or come in any form such as negative thinking to just a cluttered mind. Whatever form they take and however it is they came about the problem is that they are stopping you dead in your tracks when you try to become successful.
How many times do you feel as though you are about to become successful, then out of the blue you fail? More times than you should, right? This is because you have hit a mental barrier and it won’t allow you to progress anymore. The blow can be so hard at times it can actually cause you to have depression, anxiety, anger, frustration, guilt,stress etc.
There is no reason to let one little wall stop you from achieving your dreams. Especially when you work hard, for so long, and get so far, to just be let down at the last minute. What I am about to share with you might be life changing. It was for me. Or it might just be something else you read and you don’t pay any attention to it at all. I’ll leave that choice up to you.
How To Break Through A Mental Barrier
Warning: If you break through a mental barrier your life may change dramatically very quickly. Don’t be afraid because this is almost always a good change.
Stop and look at how you view yourself and your thoughts. Some people view themselves as mostly right or mostly wrong. Other view might be that they can’t do something because … or that they can do anything because … Whatever view you hold about yourself is wrong. I am going to tell you right now that it is wrong and that you need a wake-up.
Your thought process is flawed and you are thinking about things entirely the wrong way. I don’t mean to sound so negative, but this is one time that negativity can be helpful. Don’t beat yourself up about this, because here in a minute I am going to explain how and why this will greatly benefit you. If you want me to prove your wrong stop and look at your success. If you have everything you want then maybe you aren’t wrong and this isn’t the article for you. If you have gotten so close, but no matter how hard you try, then guess what?
Now it doesn’t make you a bad person and you shouldn’t let your self esteem drop down to low just because you realize that you aren’t perfect. Who is? What you need to do is go at life from a different angle. If you thought you were always right admit to yourself that you are wrong about a lot of stuff. Admit that you hide the fact you are wrong behind something to protect your ego. Most of us are so stuck in the current mindset that this may shatter our thought process and cause us to draw a blank.
It’s OK if that happens to you. When you shatter your current thought process you will be able to build a new one from scratch, that will do you much much better. You need to open up to yourself and let out some stored emotion. Cry if you have to, its OK. Feel the breakthrough happening even if it’s tearing you apart temporarily.
Once you are done breaking your mind down and have the clean slate it’s time to reprogram success. You should have all or most of the weight of the world off your shoulders now. You should be feeling a little better, but still beat up. At this point you need to affirm to yourself whatever it is you want out of life. If you want to be happy then it’s time to accept things for how they are, and get out to smell the roses. If you want more money then it’s time to get focused on how your going to get there, and affirm that you won’t need to be right all the time, just work harder. Whatever it is you want, you need to realize you can get it and get there without your previous way of thinking.
What really does matter is how you are going to think from this day forward. Bring into your life emotions you have had buried for years. Show love and appreciation for things and people around you. Get involved in your life by living in the now. Things that were so important to you in the past may come forward again. Focus on what you love and what makes you happy. Do this and move forward through mental barriers and achieve whatever it is your dreams desire. Good Luck!
