30 Day Mental Diet Challenge
Change is something people always talk about, they tell you oh you should change you should be nicer, you should be more thoughtful, you should be more caring you should be more compassionate. I’m pretty sure at some point in your life you’ve heard the word change and for many people, it is scary as shit. I truly believe that most men want to be better, want to do better. The thing I think is a lot of men are missing is actionable tips to get them from point A to Z. For my journey of understanding one thing I’ve come to learn is that change only happens when you create an environment for change to even take place.
So I’m proposing a 30 Day Mental Diet Challenge. Every day in your journal or you notes app on your phone write down three good deeds that happen. I don’t care how small or how large it is write it down. Even if it’s the cashier giving you an extra biscuit at Popeyes or a double shot of B12 at Smoothie King write it down.

So I found three simple ideas to help you along the way to excel in this 30 Day Mental Diet Challenge from Project Life Mastery.
1. In the next 30 consecutive days, refuse to dwell on any unresourceful thoughts or feelings. Refuse to indulge in any disempowering questions or devitalizing vocabulary or metaphors.
2. When you catch yourself beginning to focus on the negative – and you certainly will – you are to immediately snap yourself out of it and change your thinking or state. You can do this by asking an empowering question, such as “What’s great about this?” or “What else could this mean?”. Or you can reframe any negative thoughts that come up, for example, if you catch yourself saying “I suck”, you would replace it with, “I’m awesome!” There are some powerful techniques that you can use in a blog post I wrote on how to master your emotions. In addition, you can set yourself up for success each morning for the next 30 days by developing a morning ritual to get yourself in a peak emotional state each day.
3. For the next 30 consecutive days, make certain that your whole focus in life is on solutions and not problems. The minute you see a possible challenge, immediately focus on what the solution could be.
