Do you find yourself thinking “My life sucks” far too often lately? If so, I have a simple method to help you turn around bad times – and negative thinking. Here are 6 helpful steps to do when you think life sucks – so you feel better swiftly. Read on…
Are you right now experiencing repeated problems and disappointments in either love or career or friendships or health or money – or a combo of a few of these?
If so, there’s a strong chance your subconscious mind is “programmed with limiting beliefs” – which are causing you to do “limiting habits” which get in your way of a happier life.
As Carl Jung said: “When an inner situation is not made conscious it appears outside as fate.”
That’s easy: Life is difficult.
You walk around thinking: “My life sucks” far too often.
You need to become aware of your “daily negative thought patterns” – or else you will continue to find yourself going from saying…
Today I want to help you to change your daily programmed negative thoughts – so you can stop feeling like your life sucks – and start feeling happy, grateful, confident – and even lucky in life!
With the help of this “360 degree lens,” you’ll be better able to truly view the gain in your pain — and appreciate your past for giving you all those valuable lessons learned.
As a result, you’ll turn your present “destructive beliefs” (aka: My Life Sucks) into helpful “instructive beliefs” (Things are happening FOR ME – NOT TO ME) .
Dare to think about your five most painful disappointing life incidents.
Do you feel tense in your stomach, neck, head, back?
There’s a neuroscientific reason for starting with this physical focus — given to me by neuroscientist and psychologist Dr. Goulston.
Dr. Goulston suggests that to achieve your best stream of consciousness, it helps to start at the lowest spheres of your brain — your animal sphere – then rise up to your emotional — then thirdly head into your neocortex – your highest rational brain processing.
When you start by tapping into your physical senses first, you are starting in a slow way to get in touch with your pain.
Basically, becoming aware of the pain in your body is the least scary self-exploration for people to engage in.
After you are aware of the pain in your body, breathe it out. Try to release it.
You will then be more prepared to explore your emotional pain.
Make sure the 1 -3 questions you pick are ones which relate back in topic to your present problem(s).
Take time to cross-examine each “destructive belief” like a tough attorney – until you are able to turn it into an “instructive belief.”
Dispute and discredit your (b)lame excuses from step #3 — by gathering “positive evidence” otherwise!
When you spend as much time as possible with happy people who have what you want – you further shift your belief system to the highly positive.
You change what your subconscious mind thinks is “normal” and develop a “new normal” which is more optimistic.
I promise that if you bravely jackhammer down and get to the root of your limiting beliefs, you will stop thinking “My Life Sucks” – and start feeling lucky to be the hero of all you’ve been through – and starring in the truly awesome life journey you get to be living!
After you do these steps you will experience another benefit:
You faced up to the scary, mysterious “Wizard of Oz” fears in your life – and you pulled back the curtain on them!
As a result, you discovered that your “Wizard of Oz” fears and worries – which you blamed for your troubles – were not nearly as scary and powerful as you originally believed!
