The Magic of thinking and acting BIG – Episode 02 – How to Think Greater Than You Feel

In my latest episode How To Think Greater Than You Feel, I will look at how I believe that human beings have incredible potential to achieve anything.

Every one of us has the opportunity to grow, contribute, makea difference and to move towards a life that excites and inspires us.

The mind is a powerful thing – it is your brain in action. Take a moment to see what your brain is up to right now.

Lots of different thoughts, yes?

Did I pay that bill? My foot is itching? What time do I need to leave to collect the kids? I could add in something about mindset in that report for work. Has anyone liked my post on Facebook? 

In part 2 of this inspiring podcast series you will learn:

-Thoughts are all over the place and they have a massive impact on everything else that is going on for you.

-Why it is so important to become aware of your thoughts and what they are doing to you.

-You are the bouncer for your mind and you have the power to choose what happens with your thoughts.

– Awareness is critical and you have the power to choose how you respond.

– What you want to feel more of the time.

Just for a moment, focus on a single thought – the thought of excitement. Think of something in your past that was really exciting: your sixth birthday party; the great New Year’s party you went to; the promotion at work… anything.

How do you feel? Tingling in your toes? bubbling in your stomach? Lightness across your chest and shoulders?

Those are your body’s way of managing the thought. Thoughts produce feelings.

So what happens when you think: I’m going to be late? Stress; tightness; pain.

And it is a vicious circle. You may not realise that the pain you feel is because you were worried you were going to be late. So now you have a thought of I’m in pain – is there something wrong with me? That generates more stress, tightness and… pain.

You can end up in a spiral of negative feelings from which it is really hard to escape.

Here are just a few ways to think greater than you feel:

  • Spend a few moments every day thinking about what you are grateful for
  • Imagine how you will feel when you achieve one of your goals
  • Do something to make you laugh
  • Smile – even if you don’t feel like it right now, you will the moment you physically change the shape of your face
  • Do something you don’t feel like doing – you’ll feel great for having achieved it.
