There was a time, when I worried too much about life in general. Sure, that’s just what we do, thinking things trough. But I guess, I just went too far with the scenarios in my head. I was always ambitious, I was always thinking ahead of time. But this endless worrying slowed me down. No, in fact, it caused me to stop.
The problem about our mind is, that it is not in control. Instead of just blending out the negative things, we increase the focus on them. We start to worry, to doubt, to imagine the worst possible outcome. We feel a bit of pain somewhere and fear to die the hour after. Sure, we can always recognize those negative thoughts and ban them from out of our lives, but that is definitely not as easy as it sounds.
In the last couple of weeks I had a shocking realization. I am the source of all my problems. All those nutrition nightmares I have been going through in the last 5 years, that is maybe all just in my head. I cause the problems with my negative visualization of things. How do I know? Well, I was too busy to worry recently! And guess what happened? The problems went away. Isn’t that ridicules? Ok, the problems are not entirely gone, but at least it is better. And with better, we are talking about an improvement of around 50 percent.
Can this really be the solution. Am I just too busy to worry?
Of course I can not say it for sure, but the last weeks showed a clear direction. Well, whatever!? How is this related to the topic of mediation? For years, I was looking for a way to calm myself down, to relax, to take a break from life. But hey, wait a second! Isn’t that just running away from our problems? Isn’t that the wrong approach towards things?
If your car says “check engine”, sure, you can delete the notification over and over again. But as long as you do not fix reason for the engine problem, the message will come again and again and again. I was looking for a workaround solution without noticing, that this will never help me to reach the goal I originally had in mind.
I focusing so much on my problems, that I didn’t even realize that I hit the wall over and over again. It all starts in your head! Life is just a mindset thing. The key to success? Get the right mindset!
See you next time!
