It’s time to be bold, even brazen, when it comes to how you deal with your mind. Instead of feeling like you are your mind’s puppet, take the lead. Dare to experiment with letting your mind know that you are in charge, and not the other way around. When habitual negative thoughts or old painful memories try to dominate your thinking, call them what they are: overly indulged unproductive ways of thinking! This description accurately sums it up. They are thoughts or feelings from a past difficult experience that insist on getting endless amounts of attention from you. Interrupt your habit of indulging these thoughts. Don’t let them bully you. Don’t run. Stand up to them. Look them in the eye. Say I see you! I see the way you want me to think and believe, but you are not the boss of me. So, BYE FELICIA!
(Note: In the beginning you’ll have to interrupt your thoughts over and over again. Do it until interrupting old thoughts becomes habit.)
