8 signs that your mindset is right
Written by Gregory Berge on Sept. 23rd 2018
You have the right mindset if:

It makes you feel happy or joyful.

It makes you feel healthy.

It helps you perform well.

It gives you power or energy.

It makes you feel peace.

It makes you feel useful.

It makes you feel pride.

It makes you feel free and all the other good things you can think of.

That’s it!

Isn’t that simple?

Sometimes we do things, not for the reasons mentioned above, but because:

We want to be right.

We want to impress others.

We want to take revenge.

We want to be loved and all those weird things that we can’t really control but that we want to go to battle for.

Wanting to be right is a real trap, especially when we feel we’ve been betrayed or insulted or when we feel something unfair has been done to us. It’s really tricky, right?

We’re sure we’ve been wronged and we’re sure we’re right. We’re definitely good people and we got great evidences to justify that we’re right, and we decide to go on a battle to prove that.

Is it worth it?

Does this battle make you feel something positive?

Aren’t you already stressed having to explain how much you’re right?

Aren’t you going to stress waiting for the other person’s answer where he or she says how much you’re actually wrong?

Are you happy right then?

Probably not.

Whereas if you take a step back, a deep breathe, understand that it’s a small moment in your life, and decide not to go on any battle and let it go, you’re probably closer to happiness. Of course, it’s easier said than done but hey, aren’t you tired of not being as happy as you should be?

On July 18th 2018, DeMar DeRozan was traded from the Toronto Raptors. He felt betrayed because a few days before the trade, the General Manager told him he was not going to be traded.

Very typical conflict, right?

DeMar DeRozan is definitely right for feeling betrayed. I would. You would. But is he right to go on a battle for that?

Lately, on his Twitter account, he posted “Revenge is a dish better serve cold”. Do you think he is happy when he tells himself that? Do you think he is happy when he tells himself that on January 3rd, when he plays his ex-team, he is going to kill them?

You can forget, move on, be happy, work hard, do the sport you love and focus on scoring 50 points against any team, rather than feeling anger and obsessing about killing one team.

After a break up, many times, one person wants the other person to come back. Have you ever tried making the person who just left you come back? Is it a happy moment? Is it a glorious moment?

According to my experience, it's nothing but pain.

Sometimes, after a failure, we love to act as victims where, in reality, the only right thing to do is to move on, work on yourself, improve yourself, become more amazing than you were and find more amazing opportunities.

Someone broke your heart? Move on. Quick. 

In life, we don't have the energy to win 500 battles. We must choose our battles.

What is the battle you must win?

It's not the battle where you're right. It's not the battle where people approve your decision, and it's definitely not the battle where you take revenge.

The only battle you must win is the one where you are a hero, an example, where you are proud of yourself.

Peace.
