Make sure you look forward to finish this whole course and also check out part two of this course. My name is Lynn ensure. I'm a published writer and content intrapreneur from Johannesburg, South Africa. In this course, we're going to discuss some sure ways and core values I hold dear to my heart, which led me to a more meaningful life while being able to control my mind. Well, most of the times, even power over our minds is a very crucial skill that determines the quality of life we're going to have. So with that said, having control over our minds, moving means having a pleasant and meaningful life. We're going to look at some various factors that help us control our minds, which include how to control our emotions. Both positive and negative emotions. Detachment, meditation, fear, gratitude, visualization, and how we can deal with others. We're also going to discuss how to control image and look at some ways to improve our imagery management. We're going to look at how to gain real freedom and break down some factors that outline real freedom and what it can mean to you.

In conclusion of this first part of the mindfulness course, we're going to look at fear meditation and how you can change your perception of your fears. Make sure to check out the second part of the course as we dive deeper into how to control your mind and most importantly, your life. Thank you. 2. Detachment: Detach from the illusion of self belief. When going through life. Try to feel every emotion, each and every day. Take time to know yourself better. We are all connected to each other. I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man that had no feet. You don't need to own anything in order to serve. Plant trees under whose shade you don't plan to sit on. The highest purpose is to leave in service. Selflessness is the root to a fulfilling life. Selflessness, he used the soul. Seek to live people happier than you found them. Live a place cleaner than you found it. The only way to align with others is to serve. Do everything for a higher purpose. Thank you. 3. Mental energy: Hello, In EG. If you don't know what you want, you will send out the wrong signals, image, and attract the wrong people into your life. Until you heal the wounds of your past, you continue to bleed. Always make space to create new experiences. Don't always yen to go back into the past. Don't rip your self-esteem around someone else. Being alone does not mean loneliness. Don't wait for others to make you happy. Be that person for yourself. Always try to identify what leads you to letting someone into your life. Some position, Someone's position is not days. They can lose it. It any given time. Put away your phone during family time. When you spend time with someone, be fully engaged with them, and don't spend time on your phone or thinking of the next Martin to say. Think of energy management, not time management. Listening is one of the best gifts weekend give to anyone. Listening also involves creating an atmosphere of trust. Being vulnerable is a good way to trust the next individual. So for us to be able to trust son, we need to be able to see their vulnerability. And also, as we also need to be vulnerable. Always keep them. Thank you. 4. Trust & Gratitude: Trust is about intentions not abilities. Be attentive to how deeply you trust someone. Always remember, we lie to impress. Don't trust someone blindly. Big grateful of the people who trust you. Have the right use of imaging. Appreciate everything, even the ordinary. When you start your day with gratitude, you open yourself to opportunities. The first thing you should do in the morning is write down the things you're grateful for. Do the same thing before sleep, and don't overlook anything. Big, grateful of everything. Feel grateful for what is already yours. Do gratitude, meditation each and every day. Thank you. 5. Values: Let your mind focus on what you're lucky. Big, grateful for setbacks. They are your best teachers. Become the qualities you want from others. When someone note something great about you, bid, thankful for them noticing it, and be happy that they sold that quality in you. Taking a broader view of all things in life helps us not to feel pain in life. Gratitude generates great kindness. Any MAG you give out, don't expect to get it back. The person was once your student ID first, can become your teacher next. Have the same standards for the people in your family that do not treat you well as you do. Outsiders. Always keep it in the back of your mind. Everyone in the world is family. Thank you. 6. Visulization: Visualization. Apologize, even when write, write down areas you want to be good at, for example, goes then single them out, then write down how to break them down by what you need to do every day to achieve them. Don't tell one person all your problems that will leave them overwhelmed. Rather, ask certain people certain problems according to the experts in those certain areas. Then once you do that, you can filter the feedback. Make sure you choose the right people for the right problem. Always remind yourself of the person you used to be. Then think of the people that helped you to sacrifice to be where you are today. Always give thanks to those people who took part in the progress that end up in how you are today. Don't feel small when compared to others. Phil, small when compared to your goals. Visualization, Hughes, the past, and prepares for the future. In order to create something, we have to envision it. Visualize yourself in a place that makes you calm. Purifying our thoughts will protect us from the influence of others. Always remember you need to work from the inside out. Thank you. 7. Complaining, Comparing & criticising: In comparing and criticizing, complaining, comparing and criticizing, those are very negative emotions. Focus on the good things that people do. Not. They're negatives. Always look for people's good sides. Every person is more good than bad. Always remember that. Focus on your strengths and your weaknesses. Tell yourself always, in every given situation, I am more good than bad. When we look for the good in others, we start seeing the best in ourselves to be used to conversations that are full of image. Do not give attention to when people fail to do for you, but rather focus on once you can do for other people. Negativity is every way. So rather not focus on it. Because if you look for it, you will find it. Focus on peace, love, and understanding. Don't adopt a victim mentality whereby you're always complaining and comparing and criticizing everything. Comparing your lives, your friends, comparing your lives, CIO colleagues, complaining about how difficult life he is and your problems, or criticizing how certain people do certain things the way you don't do them and how bed other people are. Those are very negative emotions. Negativity is very contagious. You'll find that those would always complain and those were always negative. They also have people around them that are also negative and always complaining. Don't always don't confirm. Always stand out. Try not to confirm. Tried to stand out, rather. Complaining is contagious. Always keep that at the back of your mind. Thank you. 8. Conclusion: If you've reached this far, Welcome to the conclusion of our course. Keep in mind of all the things that we have discussed. And I hope you had your notebook taking a long, some great aspects that you would love to apply and implementing your life. Keeping in mind that wind makes trees stronger. We can apply that in our lives by allowing challenges and things that push us to modus. Allow fear to sit in your body and let it guide you to be more away. Stress does not classify problems. Practice fear meditation. To change our relationships with fear, we need to change our perception of it. The first step in changing our fear is acceptance. You need to recognize your pain. Pain makes us pay attention. When fear pops into your mind. Always rated between 0 to ten. That way, it will give you a roadmap on how you can deal with it. Develop intimacy with your fears. The cure of fear is detachment. When you feel afraid. Do not say, I'm afraid. Rather acknowledged the fear and tell yourself that you are not the feeling. You're just feeling that way. Embed particular moment. Thank you once more for taking part in this course. I hope you managed to take some gems and some information with you can be able to apply in controlling and changing your mind. Some of this information helped me to become the person I am today. And applying it didn't take one day or a short period of time for me to end up implementing some of these things. It was a work in progress. And it takes time for you to end up meeting that vision of yourself that you want to become. So be patient with yourself and try to implement this information bit by bit. Implemented an edit towards things that you normally do each and every day to make it easier. Look forward to part two of this series. And I hope you enjoyed going through this course half as much as I enjoyed making it for you. Thank you.
