Learn How To Control Your Mind?

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” ―Buddha

Be cool, calm, and composed when encountered with crises because a calm, clear, and organized mind is a superpower. Never become anxious when encountered with challenges. Don’t react. Act. Take a pause, reflect for a moment and explore solutions to address them. Don’t panic. Don’t make decisions at the spur of the moment. Don’t make decisions when the tempers are high. Be cool-headed and stay level-headed to lead mindfully.

Do one thing at a Time

Focus on a few activities to achieve the desired outcomes. When you focus on too many activities, you end up nowhere. Avoid multitasking. Take up the task that you are passionate about and competent to execute it. Move to the next task after successful completion of the task. In this way, you will be able to execute your tasks effectively. Avoid information overload. Avoid distractions. Limit the usage of social media.

Control Your Thoughts

There are many ways to control your negative thoughts. First, you can replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Second, you can eliminate your negative thoughts completely. The ball is in your court. Make your decision based on the issue, situation, people, and your principles and philosophies. Eliminating negative thoughts forever and deleting the folder is an ideal approach to lead your life with peace and happiness.

Challenges in my Personal Life

I am dyslexic with ADHD (Attention, Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). I had a chaos disorder. I used to panic about petty issues in my childhood. As I grew older, I overcame ADHD gradually. Now I can accept disruption and thrive on uncertainty. I am capable of overcoming challenges with a cool demeanor. I resisted change in my childhood. After I joined Indian Air Force at the age of 18 by dropping out of my college to support my parents financially and serve my nation, I embraced change. I understand that the only thing constant in this world is change. I embrace and enjoy the change in life.

When you execute tasks under panic you are likely to make mistakes. I made many mistakes when I was young. Now I execute tasks slowly and steadily at my own pace and my success rate is higher. I prefer quality to quantity. I emphasize excellence over perfection. I am happy with what I do. I don’t have any regrets because I am mature, calm, and clear on my mind. Life is the best teacher.


“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales

Accept the reality that the negative voice inside the head is natural and an integral part of life. Replace your negative thought process with a positive thought process by taking charge of your life. To conclude, control your mind to have clear thoughts and organize them effectively to lead your life mindfully and meaningfully.
