Unconscious memories can stop you from making accomplishments. If you want to pursue a goal, and your unconscious mind tells you it can’t be done, you’re doomed from the start. Even if you try running after the goal, your unconscious mind will be the sticky tar on the ground, or the foot that trips you. The game will be over before you even played it. The race will end before you break a sweat. You get our drift.
Now, once you stop yourself from saying NO, that doesn’t mean that everything you want to pursue will come to you. People will still say NO to you.You may end up losing something after taking a risk. Usually, the voice in your head saying NO has concerns that stem from a kernel of truth. But having a bulletproof mind means accepting that losing is fine sometimes. The best people in the world failed multiple times before they succeeded. That star basketball player missed so many shots before he could shoot three pointers like it was nothing. That bestselling author got rejected hundreds of times before finding someone who would publish her work. These people have bulletproof minds. When that basketball player missed a shot, he didn’t think, “Maybe I should give up basketball,” but instead, “I wonder how I can shoot better next time.”That isn’t to say they had doubts, but their resolve overpowered any doubts and made them into the people they are today.
Every time you face an obstacle, you don’t need to cry and think that it’s over. Instead, you turn it into positivity. We all know the battle between optimists and pessimists (and realists too,) where some say it’s better to see the bright side of things, while others believe that you should look at the bad side. But positive people do end up having the push to go forward, which is what most pessimists lack. There is a bit of nuance to this, which we’ll talk about later, but the general idea is that you’ll benefit by thinking more positively.
You turn on the news and see the latest political outrage. Everything is doom and gloom. Positivity seems delusional. That’s what society wants you to think. However, all of mankind’s accomplishments have been due to a positive desire to want something. The cavemen wanted a way to push things around, so they carved the wheel. The person who invented the automobile thought of a world where people could travel more freely, and created a machine that could do that.
