Or, it’ll get you.
It won’t stop racing till it finds something of interest.
Then, it’ll hook on…
… without caring too much…
… whether that something’s good or bad.
At that stage, you might not be able to control your mind.
Control it when it’s controllable.
Before it’s latched on.
Before the flow has started.
Define for yourself the area of flow.
Actively make your mind connect.
Regulate your flow.
Enjoy the harnessed potential of your mind.
Let’s observe a practical example in motion.
I’ve actively latched on my mind, among other things, to the stock market.
The market has many aspects.
I need to take into account most of these, if not all, while picking a stock.
However, some aspects stand out for me.
To these aspects I latch on my mind very thoroughly.
I like it to get a feel for honesty.
While I’m screening a stock, my racing mind either picks honesty or it doesn’t.
If it hasn’t smelt and felt honesty after two days of studying the stock, I just let the stock go.
Some are big on numbers. Some are big on charts. Sure, I look at both. Honesty delivers the final decision for me, though, as in, the crucial blow.
Instead of resorting to all kinds of nonsense, the racing mind can be taught to become one’s greatest asset.
