Everyone has untapped creativity in their amazing minds. Unfortunately, it remains that way for most of our life, simply because our minds are too busy with the endlessly repeating mindstreams that serve no purpose.
Yeah, the ones like ‘you’re a failure’, ‘see, no one likes me’, ‘I was the ugliest person there’, ‘I am sure I will get fired first’, ‘they’re laughing at me’, ‘I bet she earns more than me’, and so on. We repeat the same stuff, without purpose, without any change…on and on.
Imagine if we stopped that and the mindstreams were constructive, creative and with purpose.
It could be that way, we simply need to become conscious of all these repeating thoughts and simply choose to observe them, be the silent witness. Then all that space we create, all that energy that isn’t wasted on these destructive thoughts can be turned to do the most amazing things.
Think and you sabotage. Be awake, aware and conscious and your mind becomes the most powerful tool you could imagine. We can all unlock our potential simply by giving the sabotaging thought space to be without response and it dissolves to allow us to flourish.
When we just stay focused and do, then there is no time to think.
Of course, there are many ways to do something, many options to consider and so on, and that is exactly it, the mind is like a giant magnet that will drag you along from a simple thought to complete sabotage and meltdown, often within a minute or two.
If we use our mind as a creative tool, dipping in and out of it to consider the creative elements and to solve challenges around a task and then return to the moment, then the mind is a powerful tool to help us complete whatever we are doing.
However, habitually the mind is controlling us with its powerful thoughts, judgements and opinions it has created about us, especially when it comes to doing something. It sees doing as a risk.
The moment we start to consider the pros/cons of action that is when it triggers the sabotage of starting anything.
The mind is a tool for us to use, not us and not something to dominate all that we do.
Thought is overrated, it kills action and stops us from being who we truly are. Conversely, focus and consciousness are where we are able to be at our best and to be who we really are and not inhibited by our egos.
