We are born without a book of instructions and mistakes lead us to wonder how we work. That’s why we must be continually open to learning about the human mind and how we can improve ourselves.

We all make mistakes. No one is perfect. We are all emotional beings.

However, there are psychological facts the knowledge of which can impact your life in small but significant ways. These can gradually change your thought process and take you on a different road – making your life wonderful as a result.

Here are 4 psychological facts which, if you use them properly, can change your life:

1. You can re-wire your brain to think and react differently so that you succeed.

  • We are talking about how you can control your thoughts and the outcomes of the majority of situations that you encounter as a result of your new thinking pattern.
  • You can create new neuro-plastic connections in your brain that are more positive than the existing ones which are leading you into a negative path in life.
  • In doing so you can change how you react to outside situations that you once allowed to control you.
  • If you create the new neural connections then you`re able to be stronger in your acceptance of what reality is and more in control of what you feel you can contribute to any situation that you`re presented with.
  • In doing so you can change the way you create your habits and then over time your behaviours too.

2. What you think about right before you sleep has an impact on your subconscious mind and dreams.

  • If you’ve heard that you can make your dreams come true and that some people do it in life then you’ll realise how important your dreams are to you.
  • What is in your dreams is often a deeper resonance of what you feel in all other areas of your life.
  • What we feed our brains before we sleep is vital to how we feel in the short and long-term. The great news is you can change how your mind feels before it sleeps and, in time, your subconscious mind too.
  • Think about it as your body and brain is very tired late at night the thoughts you choose to notice are ones that are more hard-wired in your brain. Often they are the limiting beliefs that you learned when you were younger.
  • So if you change what you do right before bedtime you’ll change the way you feel during sleep and early in the morning too.

3. The people in your life are there because you choose to have them there.

  • If the people around you are not helping you out then you need to figure out why you have chosen to keep them there in the first place.
  • Straight away you may think that as some of them are your family you’ve no choice. And that’s true to a certain extent.
  • But other than having to live in the same house as them, you don’t have to listen to or act on what they tell you if you don’t want to.
  • After all, if you are an adult then you’re legally responsible for your choices.
  • It’s the same for your so-called friends. If they are not a positive influence on you, then the time and attention you give them are a waste of your energy.

4. Others will trust you more if you show them your weaknesses.

  • Because everyone wants to relate to the human being and not the official part of the person.
  • Sure, people want to go to professionals and seek professional advice and services, but they won’t be able to open up fully if they don’t see some form of the human element in the professional they’re talking to.
  • That’s why it’s important for professionals to be human and be honest with their clients.
