Worry, frustration, confusion, sleeplessness and fear are all components of the chaotic mind, making just one simple goal difficult to achieve and hindering success.
There is no success in a mind of chaos. One needs to attain peace and calmness in the mind in order to encourage positive thoughts.
Normally one finds it very difficult to manage and control the mind. Sometimes, one may feel that the mind is similar to a balloon, blown by the wind, taken to any direction and circumstance the wind takes it. When things come out well, the mind is content, but when things go badly, instantly the mind becomes very unhappy.
Because the mind and ones emotions are connected, a disturbance in one will distract the coordination and harmony of the two. For instance, when one gets the result or the relationship that he wants, such as a partner, a job promotion or a new car, one bonds to it very tightly.
These possessions and relationships are uncontrollable, the moment that one is separated from all these, it causes so much pain. And all the negative emotions causes chaos.
Such mood fluctuations arise for the main reason that one is closely attached with the outside situation. However, when the mind is relaxed, one makes an inner room and clearness which enables one to control and manage the mind despite the external situation.
Gradually one develops mental balance, which is a state of the mind that is happy and positive always; confused mind moves back and forth between the intemperance of despondency and excitement.
In meditation, one can achieve a peaceful and calm mind that is free of worries and anxiety, so one can experience happiness; encouraging and attracting positive behavior. A chaotic mind only attracts negative feelings and behavior, therefore, it is a barrier to setting and achieving goals.
With a chaotic mind, one will have a hard time experiencing happiness, even when one is already in the best of circumstances.
Constant meditation trains the mind to gradually be more and more cheerful and peaceful, eventually experiencing balance and happiness; being able to stay positive even in the most complicated or worst situations. This is a state of mind that is very crucial to achieving success.
The mind is like a station, sending out energy or power signals (your beliefs and thoughts). These energy and power patterns are then grasped by the subconscious mind that is responsible for creating the circumstances, situations and events to assist one in achieving what ones beliefs, thoughts and goals are.
The subconscious mind never distinguishes what is bad or good for you, it only acts on what instructions it receives from the conscious mind; meaning what your thoughts and beliefs are.
So while there is that desire in you that you want to accomplish a certain goal, if you do not truly believe and truly trust that will be able to, if you, with your chaotic mind constantly think about the reason why you can’t achieve something rather than why it will be easy for you to do it, then you will be sending instruction to your subconscious mind to establish certain circumstances in which it will be difficult for you to accomplish your goals.
This is the reason why negative thoughts should be eliminated. Only entertain positive thoughts, all the time.
Constant positive affirmations likewise attract positive situations, and influence the subconscious to create a situation favorable to you. Affirmations are positive thoughts spoken with great trust, faith and absolute power that what you say, you will accomplish.
Remember, first and foremost to keep a focused mind and never entertain negative thoughts. However, should a negative thought enter your mind, block it off with positive thinking and never, never affirm it. For like the chaotic mind, verbal affirmations can greatly affect your attitude towards accomplishing your goals.
Never be a prisoner of the chaos in your mind. Release all those hurts, frustration and anger that you feel deep inside. Look at the world from a different point of view and believe that you can accomplish anything, as long as you have faith in you that you can.
There is no success in chaos, and chaos will not lead to success. It is balancing the mind, releasing all the stress that the mind feels, letting go of all negative thoughts and making a clear image of the life that you want to live, only then can there be success.
