How To Control Your Mind

You vs Your Mind by T. Harv Eker:
There’s a part of us that keeps control over us. Have you ever noticed this about the mind?

You say things to yourself like, “I know I shouldn’t beat myself up about making a mistake,” but then you do it anyway and it makes you feel worse.

Does anybody see a problem with this? It happens all the time, but here’s the problem: you cannot win this kind of conversation; there’s no debate. It got you. When you enter into a conversation between the mind, you will lose.

Stop the conversation. It’s not about thinking, “It’s okay, I made a mistake,” or “You’re a bad person for missing (blank).” Just cancel the conversation.

“You don’t understand. I didn’t do what I said I was going to do, and so now I want to improve.” Stop! Remove yourself from the conversation.

“Harv, what should I put my attention on if it’s not that conversation?”


Well, what are you doing right now? “I was on my computer. I was doing my emails, and this one thing came up, and I realized I hadn’t done ____.” Stop.


Go back to your email later, or go to a different email and come back to this one when you’re ready to drop the whip, and you can just say, “I didn’t do that, so I’ll do it tomorrow.” Whips don’t work.


Next, you begin a new habit of relaxation – something that takes your mind off  what you did or didn’t do today, or yesterday, or five years ago, or whatever.

You could say, “I really need to do my yoga and 15 minutes of stretching every morning. That’s something I really need to do.”


Let me tell you what will happen. For the first day you’re going to say, “Way to go! You said you were going to do it, and you did it. You kept your word. You’re a warrior. You’re awesome!”

Now you say, “This is really good. I’m going to do it another day.” The next day you do your yoga, and you go for 15 minutes. What do you say to yourself this time? “Good job. Very good. That’s great. What else do I have going on here?”


The third day you do your yoga for 15 minutes. What does your mind say?


Your mind says, “That’s great you did your yoga, but you didn’t send that email you were supposed to emit. What the hell is wrong with you? Why did you do that? You never do what you say you’re going to do. What is the matter with you?”

Of course, the one day of yoga you miss out of the next 10 days, your mind is going to beat the crap out of you, too. Do you see what’s happening here?


The whole conversation sucks. Just let go of the conversation, and put your attention on the present moment, or if you’re going to do anything, put your attention on something more positive.

In one of my camps when I’m teaching, I put on a miner’s light on my forehead. When you shut off the lights, it shines in a certain area. That’s what we do. We focus our attention.


When you’re stuck in that useless self-conversation you’re focusing your attention on your mistakes, your problems, or what you didn’t do, so move your head and shine your light on something that you did really well.

You might say, “I didn’t do anything really well.” Did you get up this morning? Yes. Okay, you did that pretty good. That’s a good thing. A lot of people didn’t do that.


What’s one other thing? “I made my kid breakfast.” That’s wonderful. That’s a good thing. What’s one thing that’s going right for you? “I’m doing pretty decent in my badminton.” That’s great. Change the conversation, or stop it altogether.


The only way to really win the conversation, though, is to not be in it. Take a nice, deep breath, focus on something positive or focus on the present.

Feel free to share … what’s the conversation you’re having with yourself these days? What’s your best strategy to stop the conversation? Share your thoughts … we want to hear from you!
