“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind.” – Buddha

(The following excerpt from Become The CEO Of Your Own Brain In Six Easy Steps by Melanie Greenberg, Ph.D., was originally posted on psychologytoday.com. To view it in its entirety please click on the link below.)

You may have tried to control your thoughts at one time or another. With the aid of self-help books, perhaps you really tried to “Be Positive” and “Show Negativity the Door.”  And this may have even worked for a while. But sooner or later, you probably found yourself back at the starting point. I’m here to tell you that there is another way. And that is to become the CEO of your own mind – skillfully directing it to live in harmony with the other players of self – body and spirit.

If you follow the six steps below, you will be the master of  YOU in no time:

1.  Listen And Acknowledge

2. Make Peace With Your Mind

3.  Realize Your Thoughts Are Just Thoughts

4.  Observe Your Mind

5.  Retrain Your Mind To Rewire Your Brain

6.  Practice Self-Compassion
