How To Master Your Mindset

how to master your mindset

I would like to share how to master your mindset. Your mindset is the foundation for everything that happens in your life. It can be your best friend or your worst enemy. The choice is yours. Our daily emotional experiences shape the decisions that we make and the actions that we take. Attitude is everything.

Think of a time when you have had to deal with a stressful event. How did you handle it? In the words of Jonathan Martensson, Emotions are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.”

Challenges are a normal part of life. How you choose to interpret and respond to them will determine the quality of your life. You have the power to master your mindset. Never forget that life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it. Choose wisely.

Unfortunately, too many people adopt a victim mentality and think that they are at the mercy of external events that are outside of their control. As a result, they live a life of pain and suffering. You cannot control the outside world. The only thing that you have control over is your mind and your emotions. How do you respond to what the world offers you?

Every single one of us is 100% responsible for the life that we create. Personal responsibility is one of the greatest skills that you can learn in life. Accepting responsibility isn’t always easy, which is why we tend to blame others for our problems, but the payoff is worth it. Once you start accepting responsibility for your life, you begin to realize that you have the power to change. The freedom that comes with that realization opens up so many doors for growth and opportunity.

In the words of Walter Anderson, “I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”

In order to be a master of your emotions, you have to become a master of meaning. The meaning that you ascribe to an event will determine how you feel in any given moment. This is how you master your mindset. You can change how you feel within an instant. Research shows that all emotions last less than 90 seconds, UNLESS you resist them.

This is best summarized in Jill Bolte Taylor’s book, A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey. She describes the 90-second rule as, “Once triggered, the chemical released by my brain surges through my body and I have a physiological experience. Within 90 seconds from the initial trigger, the chemical component of my anger has completely dissipated from my blood and my automatic response is over. If, however, I remain angry after those 90 seconds have passed, then it is because I have chosen to let that circuit continue to run.”

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “For every minute that you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” Why would you choose to live life from such a place? Trust the process of life and understand that everything happens for a reason. Everything in life has a purpose, if you choose to perceive it in that way.

When something bad happens in life, take a step back and ask yourself, “How can I learn from this event so that I can come back stronger than ever before?” This is how you master your mindset. The power is in your hands to make it happen. Are your emotions driving you or destroying you? If it is the latter, it is time to learn how to control your emotions so that they don’t end up controlling you.

When you are able to find a more intelligent response to something, versus an emotional one, you master your mindset. When you do so, you will be free to achieve the success that you desire.
