What is mental exercise?
This is the act of performing the mental stimulating exercises in other to develop a well state of mind for proper reasoning. This is of importance if you really want to be productive in life.The way you picture yourself matters a lot. I am going to share with you two of the most powerful mental exercises that benefited to me and my career as well.
1. Google search exercise
In my early 20s as an undergraduate, I had this mentality of a high profile personality. Someone who is well-known virtually all over the world. Despite the fact that was still here in Nigeria with a Facebook account that was hardly functioning as all I could afford then was a 2go account. Nevertheless I held on to this mentality and never let go. In my own quite time I always do something totally out of point. From time to time I do google my name to see if anything will just pop up, maybe magically or spiritually. My friends laughed at me for doing this and at times I got shameful. But I kept on doing this on a daily basis. Why do I always do this? Well I had my reasons back then.
Now here is the logic:
Each time I google my name it gives me an assurance that someday my name will flood the internet with different articles and publications about me and what I stood for. It helps me to believe in a greater picture. The funniest thing is the huge smile that covers my face whenever I do this. I knew I was meant to do greater things, things far beyond my comprehension. Despite the fact that my name is out there on few websites, I still do this because am not yet satisfied because I know am far much bigger than this. Am sure google itself was definitely aware of my presence because I was and I am a regular visitor. On a daily basis, you browse through the internet reading about people and their achievements without getting tired. Have you even wondered how nice it will be if people are also reading about you? I guess not. Doing this shows that you have a global mentality and you believe that someday you will be out there making the impact. You are HERE but you are always seeing yourself THERE and trust me, that is the mentality you developed by engaging in this mental exercise.
I was on the street of Abuja on a faithful Monday morning and I couldn’t help but noticed a red Ferrari quietly siting in a parking lot. That was not my first time of seeing a Ferrari but this was different. I quickly imagined myself driving in the car, in fact, I took my time to feel the leather seat as I held on to the wheel, I even went as far as taking a ride with my future wife on a sunny Saturday morning. This was happening all in my mind. With full assurance, I smile and said “someday I will own a Ferrari”
That statement was the confirmation seal that it will definitely happen. If you admire, desire or imagine any good thing please never forget to confirm it with your words. Your words stand as a seal and by your words you trigger the subconscious mind and it begin to align your thoughts with all you need to bring about the accomplishment of what you desire.
What is your worth? Do you really have one? Do you even know who you are or who you want to become? Having a clearer picture of what you want in life is the ultimate step to success. The saying goes that “as a man thinks, so he is” well this is actually true. But the fact remains that you might actually be far different from the way you think or see yourself. It’s just that you are not aware of this.
All you need to answer all the questions above is to change your mentality. If you change the way you think, then your life is set for a change. You need a clearer definition of what you truly want in life and in other for you to achieve this, you need to first work on your mentality.
