“In this video, I'm going to be teaching you some tips on how to change
how you feel. Some concepts and some insights into how to look at the life that
you already have differently. And how to be able to change how you feel about your life.
I got the inspiration for this video from a guy. He's an old guy, he's about 70,
And I'll make it short, he's 70 something years of age and he's a contractor. He
doesn't complain, he doesn't give out, he doesn't talk down to anybody. He has a
really positive mindset. So I wanted to find out what his mindset was like.
I know that the difference between somebody like this and somebody that's
got everything but feels unhappy, is the quality of their attention.
I dug in a little bit and asked him a few questions about what he was
paying attention to. But in his case what matters the most was what it was NOT paying attention to. The guy wasn't checking in with himself all the time to know how bad or good he was feeling.
I got from him was that he doesn't watch TV and he doesn't socialize with his kind
of generation of people. As I said, he's not being influenced to check in how he's
feeling all the time, from the outside world. And I realized that instead,
he has a better quality of life than most people because he's got a good quality of attention.
There is this constant pressure to look inside at how we are feeling all of the time, to see what's wrong. And once you start looking inside, and you start feeling bad, you then start to think and a recursive loop process starts.
If you pay attention to something that's funny, as soon as you stop paying
attention to it, what happens to the feeling? It dissipates. It's the exact
same with a negative feeling. The more you pay attention to the context of
the negative feeling the more it will just keep sustaining itself, and peaking.
Stop paying attention to the negative feeling. It might seem like it's hard, but it's
not. It's just not familiar. As best as you can, just keep shifting your attention from the negative feeling long enough for your body, and your nervous system to catch up.
Remember: your body's always eavesdropping on your mind, and your mind
is always eavesdropping on your body. So the two of them are listening to each
other. If you start to change how you think, then you start
changing how you feel, because your thoughts will create your feelings.
Just practice this a bit. And just shift your attention, and keep your attention
on the simple things in life, like being present, and being in the moment.
It just depends on what your quality of attention is: that's going to define your
quality of life.
