Controlling Your Thoughts

Posted by Jay Hedley

Our brains are filled with thoughts. Some are happy, some are dark. Sometimes they’re helpful and sometimes they’re not. You may feel like you have no control over the thoughts that enter your mind. Ideas seem to pop up on their own, and you aren’t controlling the process. Part of this is conditioning and part of it is your experience of the environment around you.

While there are many variables that determine what our brains are thinking, it is possible to consciously change our thoughts. You can do this by changing the questions you ask yourself and by choosing which thoughts to pay attention to.

In this video James Hayes, Director of Coaching and Public Trainings here at The Coaching Room, will take you through:

  • How to be open to the randomness and variety of your thoughts
  • Consciously changing your thoughts by changing the questions you ask yourself
  • Controlling which thoughts you consciously identify with
  • Accepting that the process is up to you
  • Realising that your thoughts are an embodiment of your self
  • Stop paying attention to the thoughts that aren’t working for you
  • Self-sabotaging thoughts will stop when you stop paying attention to them

 

You don't choose your thoughts, but you do choose which ones you pay attention to
