To achieve your goals, your mindset needs to match your aspirations, otherwise, it might be holding you back from getting where you want to be. Mastering our thoughts can be one of the hardest, yet most rewarding tools towards experiencing truly fulfilling lives.

Maybe you want to stop thinking about a recent breakup or feel discouraged from a year of physical distancing and want to embrace a more hopeful perspective.

Unwanted thoughts can cause plenty of frustration and distress. You are not alone in wanting to make them go away. It is normal to have trouble convincing yourself to look up when feeling downcast in the face of stress and other challenges.

The quality of our thoughts determines the quality of our lives. That is how important it is to encourage a disciplined mindset towards monitoring our thoughts and making sure we are planting roses in our gardens of life, rather than toxins.

You can work to change your mindset. It might take some effort to learn the trick of regaining control. Everybody worries to some extent. That is just human nature. However, it is how we respond when those thoughts enter our minds that determines a lot.

  1. Identify the thoughts you want to change

Nearly everyone experiences discouraging thoughts or emotional setbacks from time to time. If you are currently experiencing some life challenges, you might find it even harder to maintain control over spiraling thoughts or your overall mindset.

  1. Change your Self-Talk

The conversations you have with yourself are a direct reflection of your mindset. To upgrade your mindset, change your negative self-talk to an empowerment speech.

  1. Listen To Your Body

Your body is a finely honed instrument, just waiting to advise you that your thoughts are taking you on a merry ride down into a bad mood. When you allow this, due to the attention you are giving to negative thoughts, your external situation will begin to reflect those thoughts.

  1. Inspirational Crew

How would you describe the crew you associate with at work and at home? Are you surrounding yourself with inspirational people, people that make you feel amazing and accept you for who you or are you surrounded by toxic people who are constantly blaming, complaining, and whining about their life and their circumstances?

  1. Try meditation

One great way to get in the habit of accepting unwanted thoughts is meditation. It may not seem as if meditation helps you control your mind, especially when you first start out.

  1. Focus Your Energy on Something You Love

Maybe it is a hobby. Maybe it is a cause. Maybe it is improving yourself. But make sure it is something you can make part of your daily ritual. Successful people have healthy rituals that include activities that recharge their batteries.

  1. Create new habits to support your mindset change

Integrate powerful habits into your day that help your mindset change and reinforce your thinking with action. If you are upgrading from a “fixed” to a “growth” mindset, schedule time for learning and start noting down your learnings and achievements every day

  1. Jump out of your comfort zone

If you put yourself in situations that challenge you, you have no other choice than to rise to the occasion and upgrade your mindset. It becomes a necessity to survive.

  1. Think Of Words As Nutrition

We know that feeding our body nutritious food is important for our health, however, words and images we allow to enter our minds are of equal, if not more, importance. The easiest way to monitor this is to stop watching things that irritate you.

  1. Focus on positives

Positive reframing is another reappraisal strategy that can help you regain control over your mindset. Reframing won’t change the actual outcome of a situation, but it can change the way you feel about your circumstances.
