Ten Ways Your Mind is Smacking You Around

David DiSalvo understands that "sometimes it seems like your brain just isn't on your side." DiSalvo presents Ten Ways Your Mind is Smacking You Around on psychologytoday.com that are worth wrapping your mind around.  As useful and necessary as our brains are of course, it's important to "remember that not every message coming from the control center is accurate or beneficial."  Here are DiSalvo's 10 examples below, but be sure to read more about his suggestions on what to do about them at: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/neuronarrative/201212/10-ways-your-brain-is-smacking-you-around

1. Telling you that you have more impulse control than you really do.
2. Producing more automatic thoughts than you can possibly manage.
3. Pulling you into rumination about your worst fears.
4. Directing you toward distractions to take the pressure off.
5. Making you think you’re a mind-reader and a fortune-teller.
6. Sending mixed messages about which rewards to pursue.
7. Looking for patterns, here, there and everywhere.
8. Pushing you into extending trust whether or not it’s reciprocated.
9. Making things seem urgent that really aren’t.
10. Tripping your guilt wire every time something goes wrong.

The Spark: Learn to control your brain instead of letting it control you.

How To Measure Usefulness

This week on The Spark with Adam Hergenrother, we highlighted some tips on how you can measure your own usefulness to be sure you’re living a life without criticism and self-doubt, from TheBridgeMaker.com.  A useful life isn’t always measured in material things, rewards and accolades.  It’s more important to measure your life by the happiness it can bring, the meaning it can provide, and the value you can contribute to others.  Here are some select tips below from Alex Blackwell’s A Simple Path To a Useful Life that can help you better measure the your own sense of usefulness and quality of life.  Be sure to check out the video as well: http://youtu.be/BVJ0u-QE-uI

The Spark: Don’t look back on your life look and measure things by what you did or didn’t achieve, instead, consider how many people you influenced with your actions, words and contribution.
