Just as your brain is built to regulate your physical self, as does it try to regulate your mental self.
Your brain is built to reinforce and regulate your life.
Your subconscious mind has something called a homeostatic impulse, which regulates functions like body temperature, heartbeat and breathing.
Brian Tracy explained it like this: "Through your autonomic nervous system, [your homeostatic impulse] maintains a balance among the hundreds of chemicals in your billions of cells so that your entire physical machine functions in complete harmony most of the time."
But what many people don't realize is that just as your brain is built to regulate your physical self, as does it try to regulate your mental self. Your mind is constantly filtering and bringing to your attention information and stimuli that affirms your preexisting beliefs (this is known in psychology as confirmation bias) as well as presenting you with repeated thoughts and impulses that mimic and mirror that which you've done in the past.
It is also the realm in which you can either habituate yourself to expect, and routinely seek the actions that would build and reinforce, the greatest success, happiness, wholeness or healing of your life.
Here, a few ways to start retraining your mind to be your ally, not your enemy.
01 Be willing to see the unchangeable change.
02 Give yourself permission to be successful.
03 Don't allow other people's fears to cast shadows of doubt.

07 Identify your resistance.
08 Have a master plan for your life.
09 Start a gratitude journal.
10 Start asking for what you want, even if you know you'll be denied.
11 Release your attachment to the "how."
12 Surround yourself with allies.
13 Fill your "dead air" time with affirmation and motivation.
