Working on your computer or laptop and it starts slowing down or the screen freezes. You start tapping on keys and clicking the mouse repeatedly. Then it starts bugging out from all those clicks. Finally you shut it down and reboot…
Such as it is with our own mind. We tend to overload it with so many tasks that we hit a point where we cannot even think straight. We forget something we wanted to do and as hard as we try, we just cannot recall it. In other situations we are striving towards a goal and everything seems to be on track and then obstacles come along and do their best to derail us. Doubt attempts to settle in and then you begin to question yourself..
Is it worth it?
Do I have time?
Can I really do this?
We work our minds into a frenzy trying to answer these questions and more, instead of focusing on what we want to achieve. Then, we start to lose the motivation to keep going. We let the obstacles become walls in our path. We start pressing different mental keys to get things going, clicking away mentally at thought after thought, hoping our mind will snap out of being out of focus and get back on track. You do not want to give up, so what do we do?
Time to reboot! Take a little time to free your mind from all the clutter, all those thoughts that are not helping but hindering you, slowing you down. At the moment your goals and dreams come to you, it is up to you to exhaust all possibilities to reach them. Doubts are temporary road blocks designed to hold you up for a bit. Think of them as building blocks to strengthen your resolve and keep you motivated. it is up to you to not let them stop you completely.
Reboot your mind from time to time if necessary. We process so many thoughts on a daily basis, we just want to make sure we are not overloading with so many unnecessary doubtful ones.
You can achieve what you set out to do! Believe it! Keep your mind all tuned up.
