Changing your Paradigm or Mental State of Being:
You are in charge of you mental state!
Here is an exercise.
Think of a time when you were wonderfully happy. Now ask yourself… how was I breathing at the time? What was my facial expression? Was I smiling, laughing, screaming, or maybe confidently smirking? What was my posture like? Was it slouched or straight? Was I excited? How was I moving? Was I bouncing on my toes? What were my eyes focused on? Were they laser focused or darting around? Take note of these things.
NOW… when you are down and out, change your PHYSICAL states to the same things you noticed when you were happy. You can’t be sad or depressed and have all of those physical expressions.
So, smile, stand tall, breath faster, get excited, now notice how you feel, and do this until it becomes a habit.
