Be Careful About What You Allow Into Your Mind


Psychological Blindness

Monsters Of The Mind

Monsters Of The Mind


People who are psychologically blind don't control what they put into their mind. They don't understand that what they put inside will come back to haunt them. Their mind goes into rewind hundreds of times each day, and when instant replay happens, they see images that make their life more difficult than it needs to be. Everything they put in their mind is important because it changes who they are. When they change the things they look at, the way they look at things changes.



Carnival is a visually compelling experience. Tens of thousands of people march through the streets in surreal costumes creating enough memories to last two lifetimes. Carnival is impossible to explain with just words. Although words help, it must be seen to be understood.

Carnival speaks the language of the mind. It's all about powerful images full of stunning colors burning themselves into your memory. If glitter is good, then carnival must be the best thing that ever happened on planet earth, because it's full of glitter and glitz.. The costume in the above picture is more than twenty feet tall and at least twenty-five feet wide. Costume designers must limit the size of their regalia so it clears overhead electrical cables as revelers dance in the streets.

The skull and bones theme of this design is indelibly imprinted in my memory. I will be able to recall it to my dying day. This monster of the mind doesn't frighten me, but it's the kind of thing that nightmares are made of in children.

Monsters of the mind aren't your friend when you're offshore fighting for survival in stormy seas. In all my years at sea, I never had to deal with mental monsters, because I'm careful about what I allow into my mind. I've learned to carefully manage potential monsters. I don't put anything into my mind that could come back to haunt me while I am at sea. A good example of this is a movie called The Perfect Storm. I didn't watch the movie, because I didn't want to have those images in my consciousness. Dozens of people have told me they could never go to sea after watching that movie. Just looking at a boat brings images of The Perfect Storm into their mind. They visualize giant killer waves sweeping over their vessel and fear keeps them immobilized on land where they feel safe.

It would have been hard to sail around the world if I had a storm phobia blowing through the corridors of my mind. I've only been in a couple of storms with winds in excess of forty knots, and I never experienced fear, because I didn't have any mental monsters blowing the winds out of proportion.

When the wind comes up, and the seas become unruly, and a storm starts to take its toll on the crew, it's the storm of thoughts that causes problems. You can usually deal with the wind and waves without too much difficulty. But mounting exhaustion aggravates and augments waves of fear, and if fear takes control, a manageable problem can degenerate into something frankly dangerous.

I can't speak for other people, but for me there's no question that when I'm exhausted in the middle of a storm, I don't want to have images of the perfect storm flashing in my mind. Those images could become mental monsters that compromise my judgment, and put my ship and crew at unnecessary risk.

What I put in my mind is important, because I am the captain of Exit Only, and my crew trusts me and depends on my judgment. That means I should never do anything that could compromise my judgment under duress. I never allow things in my mind that could become a mental monster during a storm at sea.

I sailed around the world for eleven years on Exit Only, and I never found any sea monsters or monster seas rising up to haunt me. Although I'll happily look at carnival monsters by the dozens, there's no room for The Perfect Storm in my memory banks. When the wind is blowing fifty knots, you'll not find the perfect storm howling in my mind.

Life is good.

Maximum Strength Positive Thinking - David J. Abbott M.D.

Although I can't control all the events of my life, I can control what I put into my mind. I have sufficient control over my mind to shape the otucome of my life in a way that reflects my goals and aspirations. I have an infinite number of future lives I can live. The way I run my mind determines which of them it will be. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

When you choose your thoughts, you choose your brain chemistry. When you change your thoughts, you change your brain chemistry. You are not the victim of your brain chemistry. You are its creator. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

I will live the rest of my life as if I am a great person. I will live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. I will act as if I cannot fail. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

Limiting thoughts are a disguised form of negation. They are a way that I say no to life while pretending that life is saying no to me. Limitations are plausible self-deceptions. They are prefabricated excuses for every failure to be what I want to be and to do what I want to do. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

I can make a living or make a life. When I make a living, I focus on survival. When I make a life, I focus on my dreams. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking


Change first happens in my mind. Whatever I am or ever will be is first found in my mind. In order to have a new life, I need a new way of thinking. That is where everything starts. I can change who I am by changing what I put into my mind. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

If I am having trouble geting permission to do the things I want to do, I need to take a look in the mirror. The person in the mirror is the only one who can give me permission to go for my dreams. All other permission rituals are irrelevant. My life is mine alone, and that is sufficient authority to grant whatever permission is required. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

The way I use my mind defines what it means to be me. At the most basic level, I am what I think about all day long. My mind is the only part of me that can change or that would ever be worth changing. If I want to change who I am, I must change the collection of thoughts that defines what it means to be me. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

I will live the rest of my life as if I am a great person. I will practice being great each day of my life. I have only one life, and I may as well make it a great one. I have little to lose and much to gain by living as if I am great. I will live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking

A positive mind is not an accident. It's the product of positive mental focus. A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. Maximum Strength Positive Thinking
