Any time you aren’t feeling complete joy,tranquility, and peace, you are thinking with the old mind.
Thinking with the old mind translates to (repeat after me, class!) thinking about anything past or future!
It is not easy, though, to remember to get present and into the right mind when you are “on the battlefield,” “in the tranches,” or any number of cliches that describe the daily work world where we all have to do business. Heck, there is even a book called The Art of War that is probably required reading when you work for a “too big to fail” bank or some other crazy corporate octopus-like firm.
So how can we remember to get into the right mind?
The Miracle Business Method offers numerous ways to get corrected all throughout your workday.
One way you might try today is simply to remember to say to yourself ANY TIME you are not feeling joyous, “This need not be.” Put some bright orange stickers all around your desk, cubicle, car dashboard, wherever you spend time working at. Every time you see that orange sticker, say “this need not be” and take yourself into the right mind.
As creatures of habit, I will tell you that you need to change the color of the stickers every couple weeks, as the old mind loves for you to get right back in the rut of its thinking, and after a couple weeks of orange stickers you will forget you are looking at a sticker! Very clever and very tricky the old mind is! But keep reading this blog and you will overcome!
