How can change my way of thinking positive instead of negative and for it to work?

I tend to mentally put myself down and I don’t mean to but I want to change that for good into something positive. I wish I could get hypnotized.

Sometimes there’s reasons beyond your control (chemical, electrical, metabolic imbalances, etc.) for why it’s hard to change your thoughts. Sometimes it’s old memories/experiences that keep playing over and over.

One thing that can help, is rather than putting pressure on yourself to "think positive" (which can sometimes activate fear centers in the brain even more!) try to think "less negative"…like, "I’m not in a good space to be assessing myself, right now." Or, "Is that statement really true?"

Another thing that can help is Neurofeedback. It’s a non-medicinal way of helping you to feel better and get unstuck from certain cycles of mood and thinking. What state are you in? Michigan has a good place – Mid-Michigan Neurofeedback They’re at

GOOD LUCK to you!

3 Important Steps To Deliberate Creation

Creating desires in your mind is one of the laws of attraction; however, you must be in a place where you can cooperate with the universe. Most of the people focus their attention on visualizing on what they want. It can be a big help but settling to visualizing will not do you any good. Manifesting is confusing for a lot of people so they tend to use visualizing instead. These two are easy to teach but you must remember that there is more to creating than simply visioning. Here are the three important steps to deliberate creation.

Do you Need a Mental Game Coach?

Tiger Woods has one. So does Andre Agassi. Almost every college pro team, major league pro sports team and Olympic team has one. Virtually every pro golfer and pro tennis player has one.

What do they have?

A Mental Game Coach.

These top sports stars are smart. They’re good already. Even great. Some are all-stars and superstars. Why do “they” have a mind coach? They want to maintain their excellence. And, they want to get better. They want every edge they can get, because they know their opponents have this mental advantage.

I coach top corporate America executives, and you can turn on the TV and see the top college sports stars and major-league pro sports stars I coach. This article will help you learn what a Mental Game Coach does for these peak performers, and about how you can choose the right mind game coach.

Did you know there are at least 25 types of mind practitioners? The term mind practitioner itself is a very broad one. Maybe you’re looking for a mental health professional. Perhaps someone to help you in business. Maybe you want to reduce stress, stop a bad habit and overcome a fear or phobia. Maybe you need to perform better on the presentation platform or in the competitive sports arena and avoid the dreaded choke. Maybe you want to learn how to get in the zone more often, on command. Whatever your reason for seeking a coach, they all, to one degree or another, help you train your brain. Find your mind. Get your motivation in motion.

The mental game encompasses every mind issue you can imagine in business, sports and life.

A mental game coach can help you in these arenas:

1. Awareness

2. Learning

3. Development

4. Change

5. Habit Formation

6. Performance

7. Coaching, Mentoring, Managing and Leading

Mental Game Coaches are particularly skilled at helping you with these critical performance issues:

1. Anxiety

2. Choking

3. Focus

4. Sales Rejection Issues

5. Telephone Call Reluctance

6. Goal-Setting and Achievement

7. Perfectionism

8. Procrastination

9. Mental Preparation

10. Mental Practice

11. Self-Discipline

12. Getting In The Zone

13. Slumps and Confidence

14. Hecklers And Psych-Outs

15. Performing Under Pressure

16. The Fear Of Success

17. The Fear Of Failure

18. The Imposter Syndrome


The public is usually aware of these five major mind coaching tools. These techniques are not tied to any one particular school of coaching or therapy. Practitioners from virtually every discipline utilize these.

1. Positive Thinking

2. Mental Practice

3. Visualization

4. Self-Hypnosis

5. Cognitive Restructuring


When selecting your mind coach, take your time. One size does not fit all. Each coach has different limitations and plusses, and not all coach background and training is equal. Not all coaches trained the same have the same abilities and capabilities. As an MD friend is fond of telling people who ask, “Even the last person to graduate in the medical school class is called “Doctor”.

Some coach training is narrow and deep and some coach training is broad and general. The field is a wide one, so make sure you select someone who has had successful experience in helping people with your specific issues, desires and goals. Choose a practitioner on background, reputation and results, not merely degrees. Chemistry and trust are the two final vital issues on which to measure your potential coach.

Good luck in your coach-hunting!

This article covers only one small part of the mental game. A complete mental training program includes motivation and goal-setting, pre-event mental preparation, post-event review and analysis, mental strengthening, self-regulation training, breath control training, motor skill training, mental rehearsal, concentration training, pressure-proofing, communication training, confidence-building, breaking through mental barriers, slump prevention, mental toughness training, flow training, relaxation training, momentum training, psych-out proofing and media training.

For a comprehensive overview of your mental abilities you need an assessment instrument that identifies your complete mental strengths and weaknesses. For a free, easy-to-take 65-item sport psychology assessment tool you can score right on the spot, visit This assessment gives you a quick snapshot of your strengths and weaknesses in your mental game. You can use this as a guide in creating your own mental training program, or as the basis for a program you undertake with Bill Cole, MS, MA to improve your mental game. This assessment would be an excellent first step to help you get the big picture about your mental game.

The Importance of Coaching

Although the dictionary plainly defines coaching as the job of a professional coach, this activity involves a sophisticated form of teaching aimed to help individuals in the development of inner qualities and physical aptitudes, or just for gaining self-esteem and confidence.

Coaching is a term that was coined in the Great Britain during the mid-19th century in relation to sporting activities. Once the idea of coaching took root in the United States, coaches were hired to encourage sports teams, and the way in which coaches helped athletes to develop their full potential did not go unnoticed by professionals in many other fields.

Derived from sports coaching, nutrition coaching and fitness coaching emerged in the last 20 years to help people develop a sense of wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle. The baby boomer’s generation developed another form of coaching: business coaching.

Combined with teamwork, business coaching has helped literally thousands of people attain their goals by developing their skills in full by means of a designed strategy based on a plan comprising different points of action.

There are also coaches whose mission is helping people to cope with social demands, reducing stress and encouraging spiritual and leisure activities to gain wellness and health.

In fact, coaching work consists of helping people balance their activities and learning to achieve harmony with their family, their work place, or just their environment.

Depending on the coaching program, people can be subjected to different challenges to motivate their interaction with the world, including initiative games, problem solving activities, and team building exercises. These team building exercises promote leadership based on experiential activities.

Today, coaching is so important to the individual that there are associations of professional coaches recognized internationally. Depending on the field of expertise required, coaches may offer synchronous and asynchronous training individually or to two or more individuals.

The range of coaching styles include organizational coaching, systemic coaching, team coaching, executive coaching, business coaching, ontological coaching, individual or personal coaching and dissertation coaching.

Mentoring, supporting, and encouraging people, coaches are committed to help their clientele to analyze and solve their problems, approaching them from an optimistic point of view.

Therefore, coaching is not longer an activity expressly designed to assist students or sports teams. Coaching is a useful aid for any individual requiring professional support in any aspect of their lives, or reaffirming their principles.

Getting closer to a coach is rediscovering the old saying: "where there is a will there is a way".

motivation and emotion have alot to do with success and with reaching or not personal and professional goals?

How does this correlate if at all to intelligence and language skills?
