The good life is the result of a good mind. You can't enjoy any aspect of life when the mind produces corrupt, inaccurate or distorted thought patterns.
It doesn't matter if you think the good life is being rich and famous or think the quiet country life is the ultimate good life.
Your preferences and beliefs are a result of what you think. Consider that 80% of all illness has psychosomatic origins. More simply, what you think influences your health.
You can't overestimate the value of quality thought patterns. Thoughts that motivate, generate energy, promote the manufacture and release of beneficial brain hormones like serotonin, dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin. These brain chemicals are responsible for how we physically and emotionally feel.
Whatever kind of good life you pursue, its success or failure will depend on the quality of your thoughts which determine behavior, actions and decision making.
Perception-eering is an advanced self-communication exercise that goes beyond the laborious and tedious self-talk therapies like neuro linguistic programming (NLP).
If your life would improve without self-limiting thinking like pessimism, doubt, fear, no-confidence, I urge you to investigate the new and exciting science of perception-eering. Fast, easy to understand and is as simple as changing your mind and being open to new perspectives that can have a real impact on your quest for the good life.
