You’ve Never Won An Argument With Your Mind - Grasshopper
Zero Sum: When one side completely wins and the other side completely loses – Winner Take All. Arguing with yourself is a Zero Sum Game.
You may have never thought about it, but you have never won a debate with your mind, yet we continue to argue.
We have all been exposed to the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Arguing with yourself is insanity.
The next time you start fighting with your mind, take the time to call a time out and assess your strategy. Notice that it isn’t working; but this time throw in the towel. It’s how to win by losing.
What if there was a pending argument in your mind that you didn’t show up for? That’s a win!
You may not even realize how often you engage in knock-down, drag-out internal debates, but once you do, you’ll notice how often you lose all your marbles.
Just the mere noticing of an argument going on in your mind is enough to halt the proceedings. Get in the habit of monitoring your mind’s obsession for arguing with you. Noticing is your secret weapon of not getting cajoled into the loser’s corner again.
Noticing lets you walk away without the dust settling on you again.
Your mind has a mind of its own and it was born to argue. If you refuse to take the bait, you’ll remain unhooked from a losing strategy and can proudly boast about the big one that got away.
All the best,
