Introduction

The purpose of this guide is to teach you how to unlock your mind. This unlocking can happen in as little as 12 hours, but it’s more likely that it will take many weeks to accomplish. Once you learn the steps outlined below, you’ll be able to unlock your mind and set yourself free from the shackles of social programming and the lies of society.

You might wonder why you should bother unlocking your mind if it’s already “free.” Indeed, the human brain has always been a repository for information, a place where patterns can be found, problems solved and ideas germinated—all without any need for exterior intervention. But what most people fail to realize is that these activities are not freeing unless they are done for their own sake; otherwise, what’s happening in the brain is merely an outwardly-focused echo of someone else’s agenda or worldview. This type of thinking serves only to reinforce preexisting beliefs and practices instead of providing new insights into anything under consideration.

The Happiness Equation

Here’s a simple formula to be happier:

define happiness,

list your expectations,

and learn to be in the moment.

Define Happiness: It can be as simple as being grateful for what you have today. Or it can even be that deep feeling of contentment that comes from not having any negative emotions for a long time. It’s hard to define, but you know it when you feel it. Many factors contribute to the equation of happiness: health, family, work-life balance, etc. Write down your definition(s) of happiness and keep it somewhere safe where you can revisit it often.

Examine expectations: Think about what other people expect of you and also consider what your self-imposed standards are. Now draw up a list of these expectations and assess whether they are aligned with each other or not. Are they socially acceptable? Are they realistic? If they’re hurting you or others, how can you change them? If they’re unrealistic or morally objectionable, how can we make them more attainable? The key is to manage these expectations by prioritizing them into different categories or stages according to importance and urgency so that we don’t get overwhelmed in our daily lives trying to meet all of them at once! For example: I’d like my house cleaned every day but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours left after work so instead I’ll make sure everything gets done once per week on Sundays with help from all members (including kids) before dinner time.”

Practice mindfulness and live in the moment: This means appreciating what is happening right now without worrying about what will happen next week or next year! The key is being grateful for today’s blessings while working toward tomorrow’s goals; doing both at once creates an optimal balance between present-day enjoyment vs future planning because neither should dominate one over another too much lest we become unhappy if either becomes too neglected.”

The Gifted Child Syndrome

The Gifted Child Syndrome

It is common for these gifted children to suffer from what is called the Gifted Child Syndrome. They simply don’t know that they can’t be good at everything. Just because they are good at one or two things, doesn’t mean that they will be good at other things as well.

If you have been a gifted child, then you might not have learned how to accept that you can’t be the best at everything and it might be difficult for you to understand that others might have strengths that you don’t have. Accepting this fact will help you feel better about yourself and your capabilities. It is important for your self-esteem to acknowledge your weaknesses and strengths and not just focus on the fact that some people excel in fields where you are weak.

Self-Esteem vs Self-Compassion

As you might have guessed, it has to do with the fact that self-esteem is based on judging yourself, while self-compassion is based on relatedness. You’ll always be good enough for something and not good enough for other things. So when you look at your life through the lens of self-esteem, for every success you have there will be a failure lurking around the corner. This means that when pursuing high self-esteem, it requires constant vigilance to stay good enough and maintain your sense of self worth.

Self-compassion does not depend upon judgment—it doesn’t measure how well you are doing or how much better or worse than others. It relies on the idea that all human beings are inherently worthy because we are all human beings—a state that none of us can escape from being in this lifetime. And since we all share this experience of being human, we can connect with each other and understand each other’s suffering, as well as our own. When we do this we become more aware and less isolated in our pain and our striving; we treat ourselves like any friend would treat us when they see us struggling or feeling bad about ourselves: kindly

Your Personal Board of Directors

In order to live the life you deserve, you must also surround yourself with people who will point you in the right direction and keep you honest. This is why I think everyone should have a personal board of advisors.

Every business has a Board of Directors, but not every business has a Board of Advisors. What’s the difference? The BOD consists of people who are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the company (think COO, CEO). A BOA consists of individuals who provide counsel on specific issues (like legal or financial matters) and who help guide your career and life. They’re your advisors, mentors, cheerleaders and conscience all rolled into one.

It’s also important to note that an advisor is not a consultant. A consultant is someone who has experience and expertise in solving problems or improving systems within an organization – they have done it before in their own lives or careers, so they know how to do it for other businesses too. An advisor won’t actually be fixing anything for you – they’ll just listen to your problem, ask questions, give you some perspective and let you make decisions based on that advice.

Diversity counts here as well – having a diverse group will give you access to different experiences and perspectives than your own (provided they are willing to share them with you). And lastly, if it’s possible for any one person to have multiple Boards of Advisors in their lifetime – because we all go through different stages in our lives where different experiences are relevant (or needed) – then we can assume that there might also be different types of people appropriate for each stage: teachers; parents; peers; bosses; subordinates; friends who’ve had similar experiences…there are endless possibilities!

The Outsourcing Game

Learning is a lifelong activity. But far too many people stop learning as soon as they leave school. They think that just because they graduated from college, or have been in business for decades, there’s nothing more for them to learn—that all the answers are inside their heads. There’s a reason so many companies fail: it’s because their leaders refuse to admit that they don’t know everything. And it’s why so many entrepreneurs burn out: no matter how smart you are, you can’t do everything yourself.

The smartest people in the world aren’t afraid to admit what they don’t know, and instead seek out the smartest people who do know those things. The most successful leaders surround themselves with smart people and then listen to them; they create personal boards of directors whose advice helps steer them clear of disaster.

You can never delegate enough! You need to get used to delegating tasks that you would normally want to handle yourself—that way you can focus on your unique skillset (and stay sane). By delegating tasks to others who are better suited for certain jobs than you are, everyone wins: you’re better rested and less stressed out, while your team feels valued and respected. As a leader, one of the best things you can do is empower your team members by making sure each person has responsibilities within her wheelhouse

Surrendering to Win

  • Let go of the need to be right

Your opinion is just that: your opinion. It works for you, but it won’t work for everyone. You can have an opinion about something without making other people wrong. Sometimes the more you try to prove yourself to someone else, the more you lose credibility in their eyes.

  • Let go of the need to be in control

Life is messy and unpredictable. We don’t know what’s going to happen next so we might as well relax and enjoy the ride. Being in control also means missing out on opportunities that are right in front of us because we’re too busy trying to make everything work out perfectly according to our plans when something better could be just around the corner if we let ourselves be surprised by life instead of always being worried or stressed about things that haven’t happened yet or may never happen at all!

Your mind is like a garden. If you don’t tend to it, it will be overrun with weeds.

Your mind is like a garden. You can cultivate it, or you can let it fall into disrepair. If you don’t take care of it, your thoughts will be overrun with weeds: anger, frustration, jealousy. If you fail to tend this garden, the good plants will die off and replace them.

It’s also important to note that everyone has different soil conditions in their brain plots. Some people have trouble growing certain types of plants—for instance, if you’ve experienced trauma in your life, it may be especially challenging for you to grow a healthy sense of self-worth or patience with others. Because the conditions are different for every person, there isn’t one perfect recipe for how to grow the perfect crop of feelings and emotions in your mental garden

But once you’ve identified what’s not working for you—whether due to your own internal conditions or external forces—it’s time to take stock of what is working. What are the plants that are thriving? How do they make you feel? It’s important to not only identify bad behaviors and patterns but also start cultivating some good ones as well

Conclusion

It is up to you to become a person who has a strong, healthy mind. Take part in your own growth and development by making small changes every day. Remember that your mind is just like a garden, and if you don’t tend it, it will be overrun with weeds. Your happiness, self-esteem and relationships depend on you taking control of your thoughts. Your career depends on you learning new things every day. Your future depends on you caring about the person that you are today—and how that person evolves into a better version tomorrow. You are in charge of your life.
