Everyday our mind subconsciously will filter an enormous amount of information from getting through to our mind. Just imagine if we start to focus on everything that we see, hear or feel at every moment of the time. Even the buzzing of mosquitoes or the beat of your heart sometimes is filtered by your brain so that you can focus on more important matters. Therefore, it is important that we select appropriately what we focus everyday in our life.
Focus on negative things, magically or by coincidence, bad things keeps on happening around us. The mind will delete the positive things happening around you and therefore amplified the bad things that is happening. And you keep wondering what has happened to the world? Actually is not the world that have gone bad, but it is more of your perception of the world.
Clean your mind and the world will become a better place for you.
Our mind is a very powerful supercomputer. It will detect things that we do repeatedly either we aware of it or not, and programmed it into our subconscious mind and set it as autopilot every time we encounter the same experience. For example, if you start a new habit of waking up late and consistently doing it for 21 days, your mind will accept it as a habit and therefore you will have hard time to wake up early after that as the habit has been programmed to your brain. Habits are not burned in us but created by us. The way we do things in our daily routines will become habits as our mind wants to ease the operation of the brain and therefore it can make room for other new input and tasks. Knowing the power of the brain and the way it works can help us to develop the character that we want.
