Focusing Your Runaway Mind

By Marjorie Favuzzi

We all have them; days where we get caught up in regretful thoughts of the past and anxiety that things won’t go the way we expect in the future.  And when you get caught up in it, perhaps thinking things will never go your way, your brain accepts it as fact. What helps? Focusing your Runaway Mind so you can move forward.

Since your brain believes that whatever story you tell yourself, (positive or negative) is REAL, you need to manage your thoughts and emotions.

I Can't / I Can

The great author, Mark Twain, is credited with bringing this to light, saying “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.”  

Getting caught up with the fears, anxiety, and stories of the mind is not only a waste of energy and emotion, it zaps your ability to be unlock your potential and manifest success.

Instead of allowing your mind to run away with you, focus on what changes would make you happy. Have you thought about changing your career? Retiring? Reinventing your self? Making changes takes action!

That’s why we created Your Next Act, a two day workshop with three professional coaches that will help you release doubt and procrastination so  you envision what’s possible. You’ll even learn how to fund your next great act. You owe it to yourself to get the tools and support you need.

To give you an idea of what it feels like to let go of the daydreaming and move into what you want to manifest, you must focus, right where your feet are.  This simple, do-anywhere, noticing exercise does just that:

Use your senses to get grounded in the present moment and move forward.

  1. Walk outside and notice the warmth or coolness on your skin. Say the sensations aloud.
  2. Notice five things around you that are living and growing.  Name them aloud.
  3. Next, notice four things about you that are soft to the touch.  Name them aloud. 
  4. Now, notice three things about you that are hard to the touch.  Name these aloud.
  5. To complete this process, close your eyes, and take a deep cleansing breath.  After you let it out, you can open your eyes. You’ve just hit the reset button on your brain. Interrupting the anxiety and negative self-talk opens you up to your untapped potential, what’s truly calling you.

Now that you are focused, I have a question for you. If nothing else in your life changed in a year’s time, how satisfied would you be?

It’s time to stop just thinking about making changes and to take action by signing up for Your Next Act. You owe it to yourself!
