Thought Awareness Training – What it is & how to use it for better thoughts today.
“Thought Awareness Training” What the heck is that?
In episode 3 of The Practicing Mind Podcast, I’ll be discussing a hidden power that we all have. The ability to train and use “thought awareness”.
Thought Awareness Training is a phrase that I coined for my coaching clients years ago. It really focuses on how individual words have meaning that we all have agreed on, but they also have an emotional polarity.
Take the word “mistake” for example, we all know what it means, but words like this can also carry a negative emotional polarity. The word “struggle” is another example, like when we are at the moment of trying to master any skill, we feel a sense of struggle.
When we label something as a struggle, it sounds negative, but what you can learn to do is think of the “struggle” as where you are in the process of mastering the skill.
This is where Thought Awareness Training comes into the picture. An easy way to think about it is that it is like mediation but for a specific purpose.
Listen in to learn how to implement Thought Awareness Training in your daily life.
