But how do you accomplish that? When something is not working or you don’t know where to start, simply telling yourself that you can do something when you know you can’t doesn’t help.
For example, if you’re struggling to pay your bills, telling yourself that you’re wealthy and have plenty of money for everything you need is not necessarily helpful, because you know it’s not true.
I have discovered a technique that works for me, that is so simple, you won’t believe that it works. I invite you to try it though because it really does work.
This is the way that I change my mindset and create the mind-shift I need:
I ask myself the question “how can I do/achieve/overcome this in an easy, enjoyable and effective way?”
It’s important to use the three E’s (easy, enjoyable and effective) because if you just ask “how do I do/achieve/overcome this” all sorts of solutions can come to you, but they may in fact make you feel more overwhelmed.
If something is easy, you’ll feel better about doing it, particularly when you’ve been seeing it as difficult in the past. If it’s enjoyable, you’ll definitely change your mind about it, and if it’s effective – well, that will lead you to the results that you want.
That’s it. Simple isn’t it? Let the question sit in your mind throughout the day – and when you feel your mind going to the place of “it’s difficult or impossible” simply replace those thoughts with this question. Give it time and you will find that things open up for you so that this thing that felt so difficult before now seems easy, enjoyable and, most of all, it works.
I’d love to hear your experiences as you use this, so do let me know how you get on with it.
