Increase Mental Clarity and Focus
To Give Your Self Confidence A Boost

Part II of How To Train Your Mind: Increase Mental Clarity

You can increase mental clarity and focus as well as give your confidence a super boost in the process.

There is no one in the world that is 100% confident all of the time. We all have areas in life where self-doubt creeps in and tries to tear down ideas or destroy dreams.

It's important that you have the mental training that gives you the confidence to put your goals into action. There are negative statements in each of us. These are phrases designed to keep you from succeeding - or in some cases, from even trying.

You might be living with a negative mental teleprompter that feeds you lines that erode your confidence. This can cause you to have a battle that you can't afford to engage in.

This negative mental attitude can damage your peak performance by causing you anxiety, depression - and even convincing you to give up. You need confidence on your side.

 ...Rest and relaxation will also help you increase mental clarity and focus as well....

If your inner voice is feeding you lines such as, "You can't do that" or, "You don't have the skills, talent, money, or goals to accomplish this," then it's time that you shut it down.

What this negative self-talk is doing is poisoning the soil of your mind so that you don't aim for peak performance because mentally, you've already lost the battle - and the war.

This kind of self-talk gets you to picture what can never be (anything good) or what you want (success) because you don't deserve it. It's time to silence that inner voice by correcting these false mental statements.

When you hear, "You can't do that" in your mind, you need to give that statement the boot. Picture opening a door labeled, "I can" and kicking the negative "You can't" right out of your mind.

This requires some mental training to do this. Don't give your negativity an audience. Have some fortitude where you visualize giving the negative statement their walking papers for good.

As you train your mind with positive thinking, you will increase mental clarity and focus

Retrain your mind with positive thoughts about yourself and about what you can do. Replace every negative statement with a positive one, immediately. It takes practice to recognize when you're being a downer to yourself.

If you have a setback, it's not that you blew it. You just have to find another way. How you work in life and what you can accomplish will be settled within you long before you even make the first attempt.

Don't allow yourself to dwell on any thought that stands in the way of your dreams because you deserve for them to come true. The mind is a tool that you can use to accomplish any task - whether it's mental, emotional or physical.

Over time, as you implement the practice of positive self talk, you'll notice that this becomes your new way of automatically viewing things - in a positive light. You won't even have to try hard anymore - it just happens.

Train yourself to see the opportunities in every failure. This is a chance to learn and grow stronger. It's almost like how we tear down muscles in order for them to grow back - bigger and stronger with every workout.

There's a lot of discomfort in failure.  But mental training means you sit there and learn how to tolerate that feeling without quitting. Feel uncomfortable - it won't kill you. Calmly practice working through those moments with calm clarity instead of frustration and panic.

.....Increasing mental clarity and focus is essential to your personal satisfaction and success...

Sometimes new ideas or opportunities can come at you in warp speed. That's because we live life in the fast lane and that's not likely to change. But it does mean that you have to be ready to grab the chances that come your way.

Life is not a yes or no experience. It's more multiple choice. You won't be presented with simply one choice or one route to take in life. Instead, you'll get hundreds of choices that come your way every day of your life.

These choices that you make will decide whether you experience success or suffer through a setback. Sometimes we make choices based on what we're focusing all of our mental energy on.

We can become so focused on accomplishing something a certain way or before a certain time that we close our mind off to any other options. This means a different opportunity - a better one - can get overlooked.

You should always take the time to increase mental clarity and focus when it comes to every move that you make in life. Don't allow yourself to be led by your emotions and don't make snap decisions

READ Part I: How To Train Your Mind


If you're presented with an opportunity that requires immediate action, you'll want to be careful that if you take this action, it keeps you on the track you want to be on.

Some opportunities really are a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and if you travel toward them, you'll get success. But others only have an empty journey that takes us farther away from what we intended on doing.

Check every idea and every opportunity to be sure that it lines up with your plan - that you don't have to lower your morals or change who you are to grasp the chance.

It's better to remain true to who you are and the vision that you have for your life than to be misled by too good to be true opportunities that can affect what you really want.

This is why it's important to have goals. Goals can help give you clarity when things become less clear to you. You can check every opportunity that arises against your goals.

Every opportunity that you take to increase mental clarity and focus should bring you closer to your overall end result. If it doesn't, then it could be a wasted experience. Having mental clarity can help you get in touch with your inner self and quiet the clamor that comes with a busy life.

It can let you see whether or not you're engaging in peak performance in how you're managing all areas of your life. Clarity comes from being mindful. Practice making thoughtful decisions and get in the habit of living life from a clear perspective.
