Psychology is all about our mind and our behaviour. Have you ever asked yourself “Why do I think what I think?”
It’s easy to think we are out of control but you have an ability to control everything going on inside your head.
Our brain is so powerful and we CAN choose how to think. Science has proved this over and over again.
Making more conscious thoughts can help to change everything.
It’s surprising that most of us make decisions from our subconscious. If we become more aware we can change the way we think.
It’s not just about us either. People around us can affect us and we are often wired to their emotions.
That’s why it’s important to be around those who are positive. If its not possible to rid ourselves of all negative people then we have to try and build a positive circle elsewhere.
Questions For Conscious Choices (Brendon Burchard)
- What am I really about now?
- What is really important to me?
- How do I want to feel?
- What habits would I need to develop and stick to in order to feel the way I want to feel?
- How should I treat other people?
- How can I remind myself to treat other people that way?
- How can I sit down thoughtfully and think “What am I grateful for?”
- What do I love about life?
You can develop daily habits to change. These questions worked so well for me.
They can for you too.

I promised you 5 Daily Actions To Improve Your Psychology
Set triggers to remind you of your intentions for the day.
You can use mirrors, dashboards and journals with visuals, or an alarm on your phone to remind you HOW TO BE.
Give out some positivity as a challenge in your work and family. It’s not just being positive. Give out a good attitude, smile more.
Your energy will lift other people around you if you project positivity. Be a beacon of light for people and become a better person.
3. TAKE TIME TO BE
Take time to be kind and appreciative. Thank you notes, emails with sincerity. We have forgotten all of this in our busy world and lives.
4. RELEASE AND RECAST NEGATIVITY
Learn to approach bad days like a game. Choose not to feel crap. Change your emotions. Make a joke of it. Let it go. Maybe you have a funny memory that would trigger you to laugh. In my Worthy Of Wealth course, I told my students to pretend a little chap called Jack was sitting on their shoulder. Every time they thought something negative I told them it was Jack speaking.
Find enthusiasm each day. What is a moment you can create, maybe for someone else? Ask yourself how you can generate some enthusiasm for what you do. If what you are doing fills you with dread, what can you do to make improvements?
Ask the question: “What can I be enthusiastic about today?”
If you notice each of the five action I have shared have a theme of deciding what to do. Making conscious decisions and setting intentions of how you want your day to go.
How you want to be. What you can do for someone else.
In my coaching practice I share tools and strategies to help my clients be more intentional and to improve their overall well being.
It’s important if we want to live happier more successful lives that we learn new habits to change our psychology and the way we think.
