The Complexity of the mind is interesting. Thoughts are always constantly running. If you don’t have control over your mind or your thoughts, it can race all over the place leading to different actions and emotions.
For example, I get promoted to work for the LA Sparks as an intern after finishing MBA graduate school at the University of Phoenix in 2015. I feel like the sky is the limit and on top of the world. Then, I get the news that the internship is only seasonal and that there are no openings for a job in a field that I wanted to do as a kid. I’m not going to lie, it was a huge disappointment.
There are two actions and two emotions with positive and negative outcomes. Becoming an intern for a professional franchise, it brought the positive action of focus and the emotion of joy. While finding out that the internship is only seasonal and out of a job, it led to a negative action of resentment and an emotion of disappointment.
This is just an example of thoughts and emotions that go in people’s minds every day. The question is not why our thoughts can affect our actions and emotions positive or negatively. The main question is how do we respond to the these thoughts or emotions that come in our mind to benefit our favor.
It’s the main reason why I started my Blog “Mind-Race because the Power of the Mind can take a person anywhere but tapping into all aspects of the mind to where you can control it like a captain control a ship is interesting.
