Reframing is one of the most useful self-talking techniques. Many athletes use that to center themselves in the heat of battle. Reframing is to embrace a different perspective of a situation. I know this sounds trite, but are you good at it?
Your mind is all you have to offer to the world. We ought to take control of it. At the same time, reframing is just a hop away from insanity and delusion.
Therefore reframing is about our ability to consider perspectives. We need to be open to alternative views. We need to be calm and not rattled by emotions and biases.
It’s a skill. It takes a lot of deliberate practice.
In the next few posts, we will explore ways to master this skill.
Let’s start with a fun one.
“I fell in love.”
“Wtf I fell in love and now I gotta share a bedroom for the rest of my life?”
The next one will be less serious. I promise.
