10 Day Mental Challenge........
Okay, this is how it goes.
You have to commit to 10 consecutive days in which you do not dwell on negative or disempowering thoughts or emotions.
Take yourself to a new level of thinking for both personal and professional success. Take control of the focus of your mind.
Rule 1 - I the next 10 consecutive days, refuse to dwell on any unresourceful thoughts or feelings. Refuse to indulge in any disempowering questions or devitalising vocabulary or metaphors.
Rule 2 - When you catch yourself beginning to focus on the negative, immediately use any of the tools you've learned to redirect your focus toward a better emotional state. Use "problem solving questions" , morning power questions, swish patterns, incantations - anything to change your state.
Rule 3 - For the next 10 days make certain that your focus is on solutions not problems. The minute you see a possible challenge, immediately focus on what the solution could be.
Rule 4 - If you catch yourself indulging in or dwelling on unresourceful thoughts or feelings - don't beat yourself up - change immediately. However - if you continue to dwell on these things for more than 2 minutes - you must wait until the following morning and start at day 1 again.
You have to do 10 consecutive day - no matter how many times you restart, or how far through the 10 days you were.
Oooh - it's not easy. I don't know anyone who has done 10 days straight off without having to start over at least a few times!!
However, if you're committed to it and up for it- it WILL reap its rewards. You will learn and grow so much.
So that's the rules of the game!
Good luck if you decide to take the challenge. For those of you who do please join me in my journey and post (all be it briefly if necessary) on your progress each day and let's support eachother through an AMAZING journey..............
