The Dark Cloud of Mind Clutter

Struggling to think

Struggling to think

by Annette Young

Mind shrouded in a dark, grey fog?

It’s not easy to make the most of your life when your thoughts are muddled, seemingly with no beginning and no end to the mental mind clutter. When your thoughts are negative, overwhelming and dark in nature, it may feel as if your life is in a complete stranglehold.

Do you feel as if there is nowhere to turn?

At times like this, problems seem insurmountable. Worse, problems arrive in waves, with no time to clear your mind and the new arrivals only add to the ever-increasing pile of issues in which you have no chance of resolving. You feel as if you take two steps forward and five back. There’s no definite answer and your life has spiralled terrifyingly out of control.

What do you do when there is no escape?

It may seem as if there is no easy pathway forward but don’t give up hope. Everyone feels like this sometimes and the way forward is just one small step at a time and one small problem at a time. Don’t try to take on the world or solve all problems in one go, it’s impossible when your thoughts are dark, you feel confused and afraid. There are always solutions, it just takes a leap of faith and a desire to make changes one small step at a time.

Let Go of Past Regrets

Regrets

Regrets

by Annette Young

You think that your past regrets are just that…a thing of the past. A distant memory slotted neatly into the dark recesses of your mind and long forgotten.

Sadly, regrets have a way of intertwining and becoming intricately wrapped in the here and now.  Stored within your sub-conscious mind, they shape your thoughts and actions and they can make you hold back in life. Regrets are part of the human condition, it’s impossible to go through life without making any irrespective of any tender steps around issues. You may have made a decision that turned out horribly wrong. Your mistake might have been costly. You hurt someone badly or your decision impacted your career prospects on a colossal scale. Your decision may have been made out of fear.

Live with your past regrets and learn from them.

Your past regrets can easily interfere with your belief system and make you second guess how to progress your life in a positive way. Understanding how important past regrets are enables you to deal with them in a positive and healing way. Spending time analysing any past regrets is a positive move. Track down those regrets that haunt you and chip away at your sub-conscious mind, always just slightly out of reach of your conscious control.

Forgive yourself and let go.

Whatever your reasoning at the time, it’s important to accept it and embrace it. Consider it an integral part of your growth as an individual. Turn any regrets into a positive force going forwards, if it is going to shape your life, let it shape your life in a positive way. Then, once you have made peace with your past regrets, embrace the sensation of peace that envelops you and take empowered steps into the future of your own making free from the shackles of your past.

Find, Identify and Kill Those Self-Limiting Belief

Self-limiting Beliefs

Transform your thoughts

By Annette Young

Do you feel that life is unfair and that you never get your chance to shine? Maybe, something within is holding you back.

Do you spend your time wondering when ‘your time’ will come? Does hope keep you going every day while you cling onto the possibility that one day your luck will change and you’ll be really happy? We can all kid ourselves that fate will one day give us our big break and it will arrive gift-wrapped but let’s cut to the chase. The only way you will achieve your true potential in life is to stop ‘hoping’ and instead, face up to any self-limiting beliefs that may be preventing you from achieving. Beliefs are really powerful and if yours have a stranglehold on your life, it makes sense to really think about what you want and what’s stopping you from achieving.

Is it time to face up to any inner fears?

There’s little point emulating others who may be successful, when you need to define your own dreams and deliver. It is fine to consider their work remit or to understand what makes them successful. But it’s important to find your own way in life and to embrace each and every moment, making them count.

How many times have you stood on the threshold of success or faced a wonderful new opportunity and thought, ‘I can’t do this?’ Feelings of inadequacy if left unchecked can overpower your life and soon, you’ll find you do much less in life but worry a whole lot more. To be able to really make significant changes, to embrace the successes in life that you deserve, you need to discover what niggling little doubts are holding you back.

• Has anyone ever told you will never account to anything?
• Do you tell yourself you are not clever or capable enough to achieve anything?

Self-limiting beliefs are destructive. They are powerful and they need to be changed otherwise, your life will remain just as it is right now. That’s fine if you don’t need anything more in life or are really happy as you are right now. But if not, you just have to decide that change is the only option.

Often, any negative beliefs begin when we are young, so it’s important to think back to times when you were made to feel inadequate. Find any deeply rooted reason for your inability to fire up your life and success and you can then work on changing these beliefs. We all face rejections, we all face losses. Some people clamber with resolve over obstacles, others give up at the first hurdle.

Which one are you?

Awareness forms a powerful starting point for change. Think, right now, right this second. You can say yes to change. It’s not your fault if you have doubts caused through the actions of others, but it is your fault if you let your rut engulf you. Make a difference. Start today.
