Thinking Your Way to Becoming Superman.

It's time to start going on the offensive.

About what you think about.  About what you let bother you.

For some inconceivable reason we've decided that how we feel is everyone else's fault.  That our negativity and spoiled attitudes are the result of some cosmic conspiracy.  That life would be amazing if bad things didn't derail us.

But's that dead wrong.

Nothing "happens to you".

That's just neural bullshit you tell yourself in order to avoid the harsh reality that you are responsible for your malaise.

It's your own fault you're in a funk.

And while that sounds heartless, it's absolutely the truth.  What you think about is your responsibility.

It's the most important chore you have to manage.  The only thing that really matters.

And the reason is actually quite simple.

What you think about you become.

If you think about how miserable your life is, then you'll never be anything more than sad, bitter, and jealous.  If you think you're going to be successful eventually, then you won't mind trying that extra few times.

It's now your brain is wired.

Recent advancement  in science show us that our brain goes out of it's way to identify and collect memories that align with our existing memories.  Quite literally, the brain regulates this behavior by releasing neuro-transmitters that shut down reasoning that contradicts what we want to believe.  At the same time, this new neural behavior excites new ideas that bolster our existing logic.

What we start thinking about, we tend to think about more.    Over time, that habit, becomes so ingrained that the brian subconsciously includes that thinking in every decision or priority that it makes.

You need to think about your thinking.

Your mind is a muscle that needs to be exercised and protected.

Not every jerk-face gets prime time billing in your head.

You only allow the most important things to stay in your thinking queue.

And here's how:

  1. Avoid negative people like your life depends on it.  They'll imbalance you.
  2. Schedule time for physical exercise.  It'll make you more rational.
  3. Devote time to planning and priorities.  Uncertainly short circuites the brain.
  4. Learn something from unfair criticism. If you can handle the worst, everything else is easy.
  5. Use reminders and momentos.  That emotion heightens how quickly your brain "learns."

You will be what you think about most.

Your future is up to you.

It's not an accident or luck.

It's what you allow yourself to dream about.

What if you really wanted to be Superman?

What about then?
