Self-Improvement Lies In Challenging The Historical Image In Your Mindset
The Ability To View Your Audience Wearing Pyjamas
This has been a famous visualization technique to overcome the stage fright for years. If not centuries, considering the negligent fashion style today.
Apparently, not everyone succeeds in applying this ‘imagination weapon’ in their life situation. Understandably, as our imagination and its rationalizing derive from nowhere else but from individual brains; only proving that humans pass each other with different concepts in their minds. In a way, we resemble walking means of transport driven by our nerve centers. Therefore each of us will evaluate the same moment differently.
Think of streets with crowds as streets flooded with bare brains levitating past each other like passers-by, along each other like two companions, against each other like two recognized friends or, on the contrary, two people in dispute, and away from each other like two people who have nothing in common (no common history, no shared interests, different address, different aspirations, different personal issues) – one heading towards the last-minute train home, the other only to his night shift.
In this image of interacting brains, like principally in our reality, all the communication is based on no other motion feasibility than the straining of neural synapses and hemispheric sections. This activity involves various emotional, cognitive and memory centers; in our reality dressed in human coats. And that is the whole miracle! Our brains get influenced by each human expression. Are we able to ignore face grim, angry voice, fear from how we look, how we appear or how the society accepts us? Should we be unified, wearing same house pajamas or going everyone skinhead, the fear of looking inappropriately different would be half-way diminished.
What Is It That Holds Us Back From Entering Any Competition?
Do you keep in mind all the aforementioned power of imagination? Then you can see the answer yourself. It is the fact that, by nature, the homo sapiens, modern humans, are different and judgemental.
Each human brain contains some historical residual from our predecessors. This anthropological evolution of human mind depicts a remarkable research finding of an interdisciplinary researcher, called Rahman Haghighat. In his book Historical Memories in Culture, Politics and the Future – The Making of History and the World to Come, you could come to a conclusion that our brains have partially built-in and partially adopted social assessment measurements and that the whole bunch of brains, the society, has developed silent rules to assess our suitability ‘au fait’.
Do you notice what a crucial role do our developed senses play in the enormously critical section of our brain and how this section is flexible, being able to become either enforced or crumbled with each new information intake?
Seeing how operative our mindset is, you may wish to scream: ‘Yes, I can restructure my attitudes, momentous flow of thoughts, and judgments!’
Yet, we know that to dismantle this gradually fortified assessment formula in our brains, the step-by-step deconstruction is required. Who would not be discouraged from such an ‘uneasy’ execution of this aimed change in our judgments?
Luckily, Mere Positive Translation Of Daily Matters Works Well As Our Stimulation Propeller.
How? Take the continual process of mind ‘deconstruction’ versus faster process of mind ‘renovation’. There is no need for you to erase your original mindset with all collected assumptions to make the desired positivity happen, do you? Just like with house renovation, define and improve desired areas towards your satisfaction. Now we see that our brain is responsible for our self-assessment, constantly shaken and reshaped by selected niche influencers. This understanding shall be notably beneficial to our mind renovation.
At this point, we shall know that there is a momentous rescue button for switching off the random whiny voice in our head; for it discourages us from taking an action. Pushing this button requires that we justify the authenticity of the whiny voice. How? By questioning its reasons and turning it into a defender of our suitability and the required action feasibility.
Next, another technique comes with a recommendation: ‘likening the desire to win to the desire for avoiding the defeat’. For achieving an award is accompanied with flattering recognition in public, among family and friends; such as in Olympic Games. Whereas the defeat depicts states of despair and pain.
There is one self-improved business developer who spoke on the above 3 helpful techniques (identifying the influencers, changing the whiny voice, facing the pain) and who thus deems beneficial to incorporate the so-called competitive edge in our mindset.
He finds it a decisive factor on the way to self-improvement. At least, there can be no doubt that it revives an action-driving adrenaline, which already the nature bestowed to our cradle, in order to survive. This revival would not be needed, if it was not for the societal evolution that diminishes and turns this natural quality into ‘escaping’ strategies of various forms of act circumvention, such as cheating the systems or illegal frauds.
As the speaker claims, should we adopt the technique of competitive edge (adrenaline approach), focusing on positives (the relief, the recognition, the celebration, and the gate to further development in exchange for invested struggle), this positive mindset shall certainly enhance our stable countenance and sustainable self-awareness.
How cardinal is the art of visualization in your life apprehension? Probably the easiest way, to see how practical this realization could be for you, is to merely keep reminding yourself that all the momentous negativity stems from the image constructed in your head. Hopefully, you will end up laughing at your primary disillusionment, which had no objective reasons to bring you down.
