Oprah Winfrey Eckhart Tolle Chapter 1

Assessing your personal growth means either retiring yourself from damaging things that bother you all of the time or replacing all of your worries and fears with peace and serenity. In totality, you now rule over your own mind, ideas, emotions, and opinions. But when you control your thoughts and simply become the master of your mind, you behold amazing success. You can now embark on any journey of personal development simply by becoming a master of your own personal thoughts. Read on to discover 5 mind-blowing ideas which can help you in this regard…

O Always be in awareness of the present moment. What are you doing? What are you eating? How are you feeling? These are some of the questions you should be asking yourself while you’re living in the here and now. Controlling your thoughts and becoming aware of the present moment will let you forego all your baggage of prior decisions and thought patterns and live in the present moment with complete energy and vigor.

O Never get frustrated if things don’t go the way you planned them to be. If you would like to grow, it’s important to understand that there could just be bumps along the road that needs to be negotiated. So instead of getting stressed out over things, take time to be thankful that you have all these ideas, that you’re alive, that you are changing and growing – and most importantly, that you’re going places!

O Be a positive thinker. If you wish to give up any negative or burdening thoughts, then it would be a great idea to start changing your thinking patterns towards positive ones. This does not mean you have to change all your beliefs and to totally erase all your negative traits and attributes, but you simply need to give up the negative ones and be open to accepting everything you see and experience around you. When you are able to see and understand what is going on around you can take good care of yourself, then you will be able to successfully handle the situations that come your way.

O Use positive statements and images. Another great way to let go of unwanted and unhelpful ideas is to begin using positive statements and images in your daily life. By way of instance, if you’re telling yourself,”I am loving and kind,” or”I’m laughing my heart out,” or any other statement that connotes happiness and well-being, then it means that you’re letting go of old damaging beliefs. When you’re able to associate these ideas with joy and well-being, then you’ll become more prone to experience that happiness in your life. This may also help you build relationships with other people, since when you connect other people with good feelings, then you are going to become more open and vulnerable to them.

O Learn to breathe deeply and slowly. Breathing slowly and deeply, is a great way to let go of unwanted and dangerous thoughts. In our hectic lives, we often rush through things or say things which do not make us feel great. Therefore, rather than thinking about how you’re going to make it through a certain situation, start considering how you can breathe deeply and slowly and how you can let go of any negative thoughts that you may have. Using this method, your mind and your body will become calm and relaxed. You will have the ability to experience deeper and richer state of being.

O Take the time for Yourself. 1 terrific way to grow in wisdom and maturity is by making time for yourself. You need to understand that you don’t always have to attend to each and every thing that has happened in your life. Instead, when you end up getting bogged down by negative thoughts or from any other unwanted traits, then you need to find a peaceful place and a quiet place where you can recharge yourself by simply breathing deeply and slowly, and you may consider the things you want to improve on with your mindset and your own character.

By doing these things, it would be easier for you to let go of unwanted and harmful thoughts. It would also help you to understand that you don’t have to rush through anything or say anything, all at once. If you want to help others, then it would also be better if you can help yourself first.
