How to NOT take things personally
Updated: Apr 26, 2019
One of the most powerful scientific techniques I teach people in my live presentations is how to NOT take things personally. This one technique has transformed thousands of lives.
Once you get the hang of it it becomes second nature.
Researchers are telling us that we control our decisions and urges only about 2-4% of the time. That’s what we call will power. The other 96 – 98% of the time we are practically on auto-pilot (our subconscious mind is controlling our decisions, urges, etc.).
Don’t believe me? Think about your favourite food right now. Now, try to hate that food. You can’t because your subconscious mind has been trained to enjoy that particular food.
What’s my point? My point is that when someone doesn’t like you for no reason, gossips about you, judges you, etc. they are running on auto-pilot 96-98% of the time. They simply cannot snap their fingers and eliminate that urge to act like that.
When you start to realize that what they do, how they act, and even what they think about is influenced by every little last thing they were exposed to throughout their entire life you will start to realize that the way they are acting towards you is practically uncontrollable without some kind of strategic help.
So when someone has a problem with you for no reason, remember that this is their problem and has absolutely nothing to do with you. They are simply projecting the discomfort they are feeling inside.
If they had a peaceful mind they would not gossip, judge you, or hate you for no reason. When someone has a problem with you, let them. It’s nothing to do with you.
Always keep in mind...
Step number one in dealing with a mental health issue is reaching out for professional help (Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Therapist, etc.).
