Friday BOLD LAW…From KW MAPS NLP Coach George Gillas…” Don’t listen to your monkey mind !”
Everyone has a monkey mind.
The trick is to recognize it and change directions as quickly as possible.
If you were a fan of Seinfeld TV show, you may remember an episode when George Costanza decided to do everything “opposite” of what he initially thought. George’s ‘monkey mind’, I think you’ll agree, ran his life. And when he did the opposite, he got amazing results, if only for a short time.
Of course Seinfeld is a sitcom and not a model for life. I wonder though… what would happen if you treated the monkey chatter in your head with a bit of compassion and understanding that it can guide you what not to do… what not to think… what not to believe.
If your monkey mind tells you, “Don’t do lead gen now… no one is home.” What would happen if, just for that moment, you decided to be like George Costanza and — do the opposite?
Could the monkey mind almost become an ally because, when you think of what NOT to do – you can focus on simply doing the opposite?
Could it be possible that because you actually listen to the money mind for a spilt second, yet actually take actions that are in complete contradiction to it, the monkey mind will eventually stop talking to you?
I wonder how much fun you could have by just playing this game for a week.
“Well… probably most of you won’t…” says the monkey…
