If you're reading this, there's a good chance you aren't feeling 100 percent. Maybe you got down on yourself today. Maybe you wallowed when you could've worked. Maybe you compared yourself to the billion and one other people who have something you want—a sure way to feel like dirt.
But none of that matters now.
What matters is what you choose to focus on before you go to bed, before your subconscious plays with your most powerful thoughts and experiences for eight hours. What thoughts will those be?
I'm choosing to think of the moments when I made myself feel proud. I'm going to magnify that feeling with my mind, and I'm going to make it so powerful that my subconscious can't resist it as I sleep. That way I'll be thinking positively when I awake, and I'll be training my brain as I sleep.
I'm going to choose the experiences that made me feel grateful. And if I missed out on actually feeling gratitude for something or someone important, I'll give myself that opportunity before bed.
I'll recognize where I came up short, but I won't dwell on that. Instead, I'll think of the amazing things I can do tomorrow to improve myself, my relationships, my career, and all the things I can control.
