In this powerful episode of the YOU Have Infinite Power Podcast, Paul and Chris share their experiences on how the statement, “Your mind cannot process a negative”, can change your life. When you understand and apply this concept, it gives you control of what happens to you. Chris shares the story of when he learned this lesson the hard way. He was in Vermont snowboarding the backcountry and found himself bumping into every tree he saw. He recalls saying to himself, “Wow, whatever happens, I don’t want to hit the trees”, and he kept hitting the trees. He then switched the thought process and restated in his head, “I want to find the perfect line”, and miraculously, the trees became non-existent and all he saw was the open line.
This applies to anyone with anything, whether it be in your personal life or professional life. The fact is, what you look at will bring upon more of the same. If you want something to happen one way, don’t look at what you don’t want, focus on what you do want. Take the time now, listen to their mistakes, so you don’t make same one’s they did.
It all comes to you answering a few questions:
- How are you seeing things in your life?
- Are you focusing on what you don’t want?
- Are you focusing on what you do want?
- How is that working for you?
Your mind cannot process a negative means you will bring upon you what you are thinking. Make sure you think wisely and keep focusing on what you want, not what you don’t want. A valuable lesson to learn and apply right now in a very uncertain time.
