Feeling as if you’ve lost your mojo? If so perhaps you can reclaim it by changing your internal dialogue. We spend far to much time focusing on the tools that we think can get us the things we want, and far to little time focusing on the words we speak to ourselves.
How To Get Your Mojo Back
- According to Proverbs 23:7 you should be concerned about the things you say to yourself. Question….what have you told yourself about yourself today? Here are some suggestions for improving your internal dialogue.
- Read a self help book (does not matter which one) and do at least one thing it suggest.
- Listen to some uplifting music daily. (I keep a playlist on my iPhone called ‘motivate me’. In the playlist…Prince’s ‘Baby I’m A Star’ to remind me that I am, the Stones ‘Start Me Up’ for a jolt, Teddy Pendergrass ‘Wake Up Everybody’ to remind me to do something that benefits someone other than me, Marvin Gay’s ‘Rated X’ to remind me to do m part to make the world a better place, and Michael Jackson’s ‘Man In the Mirror’ to remind me to be the change I wan to see in the world.
- Lie to yourself …it worked for Muhammad Ali why can’t it work for you?
- Take a walk to clear your head. Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson both believed in walking to gain clarity. A few times a month I take 3 or 4 hours and walk through Longwood Gardens, or a nearby wooded area. I go with no agenda other than to chill. I always return refreshed, loaded with ideas, and more clear than when I arrived. I now know what Mark Twain meant when he said golf is a good walk ruined.
