Say goodbye to your FEAR!!
In Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta, Lord Krishn has underlined the importance of the human brain and said- “The mind acts like an enemy for those who do not control it. (Ch. 6, Ver. 5-6)
Similarly, if your fears scream loudly daily, you will not be able to hear the softer whispers of your higher angels of bravery, creativity, prosperity, and impact. You’re meant to shine. To have a meeting with greatness. And to reveal the most excellent version of the grandest vision of yourself to the world.
We need to rescript our current identity—via morning meditation, visualization, affirmation, and contemplation—so we may become the kind of person that has the power to carry our highest reality. Part of this mindset transformation work involves defeating The 5 Devils of Psychological Sabotage. Let’s go through each of them:
Through the messages of our earliest teachers we are schooled strictly on how the world works, the ways we must operate to fit in with the group, and the manner in which we must think in order to stay safe. And via the hurts that we all collect as we advance through life, our brains actually lose their capability to express our natural genius (trauma repressed creates the mental blocks that restrain our access to the advanced perception all great masters inhabit). The suffering that is part of a life richly lived causes our once wide-open hearts to close—limiting not only our joy and wonder but also the passion that drives elite productivity and heroic performance. So we need to turn a limitation into freedom and tiny thinking into boundless belief in our potential, our talents, and the fantastic future that destiny has in store.
Devil #1: Excuses
Your excuses are liars, your doubts are thieves. The more times in a day that you rationalize why you can’t become all that you wish to be or handcraft the life that your best self wants, the more you’ll hardwire the neural circuit of that belief into your brain. And that which you keep practicing is that which you’ll become a pro at. We become amazing at the things we repeat. If you keep excusing away your power to do remarkable things, grow stronger amid adversity, and live the life of your ideals, you won’t do the work required to realize these feats. So our very mental habit will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. And actually limit the glory of your potentially awesome reality.
Devil #2: Blame
Blaming others is giving your primal power to the people and conditions that you blame. We reinforce our psychological victim stories and procrastination patterns to the point where they actually become our identity the more we blame. You begin to take back your power to be the creator of your bravest life and the generator of your wildest dreams once you stop blaming that which is outside of you for the things you are currently experiencing.
Devil #3: Gossip
Speaking about people who are not present amplifies what you speak of within your own thinking. Talk of someone else’s misdeeds, weaknesses, or blind spots and you’ll be cementing these within your own mentality. And your daily behavior will always reveal these deepest [mostly unconscious] beliefs.
Devil #4: Complaint
Complaining is a meek form of anger. The more you grumble about what’s not working for you, the more you’ll be training your brain to look for those things in your environment. Human cognition is built in such a way—through a system called The Reticular Activating System—that we actually only see the things outside of us that fit with the story we’ve sold ourselves. Complain about how little money you have and all you’ll see is more scarcity of prosperity. Complain of how mean people are and you’ll notice more mean people. Complain of the lack of opportunities and you’ll witness more closed doors.
Devil #5: Apathy
Your brain requires novelty to become fully engaged. Without a mighty mission to give your days over to, high-value targets that electrify your enthusiasm and meaningful pursuits that fuel your joy, you’ll grow bored. And apathetic. Scared people generally complain about how bored they are, by the way. They are so terrified of living their genius and honoring their original gifts that they’ve suppressed their ambitions. And have no energetically imagined future that gets them out of bed before the sun comes up and inspires them to present their finest creativity to a most welcoming society. Please consider these 5 devils that sabotage a pristine mindset—especially in challenging times. And then stay committed to doing the morning mastery work to ensure that they never affect the heavens of potential that your life is meant to materialize.
