DEJAN DAVCEVSKI: “The 3 Best Mental Tools You Already Have That Will Help You Build A Better Life”

Most of us know how we want to live. We know exactly what we need to do, maybe even how, and yet less than 1% of the people are living on their terms. Why is this?

The short answer is that people lack proper education, nobody has told them that there are mental tools they can learn to use, nobody has showed them how.

Just like you need tools to build, for example a house, you need mental tools to build the reality you want to live in.

There are countless mental tools developed by people who were in desperate need of them. These people needed these tools so much that they created them to help themselves.

Before you go out exploring all the existing mental tools, here are the 3 best and most essential ones you will need to create a better life for yourself.

The 3 Best Mental Tools To Build Better Life:


1. The 5 Second Rule.

Most of you know “The 5 Second Rule” to be something that applies to food that you might have dropped. But this is a different rule.

This is a mental tool developed by TV host, author and motivational speaker Mel Robbins and it’s the main thing that helped her rise even higher when she was hitting rock bottom.

This so called “5 Second Rule” is really simple. All it means is that whenever you want, or need, or should do something, count from 5 to 1 and lift off into action.

Mel first started using this mental tool in the mornings, when she felt like not getting out of bed. She started counting 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and on 1, without thinking, she just got up.

The truth is, you will never going to feel like it’s the perfect moment for taking action. However, with this simple tool you will have mental leverage to launch yourself into action.

2. Turn ANTs Into PETs.

So, of course, we are not talking about actual ants. ANT is short for Automatic Negative Thoughts and PET is short for Positive Encouraging Thoughts.

Dr. Daniel G. Amen got the idea when his home was infested with ants. He looked at the real ants and realized that most people have minds that are infested with negative thoughts.

Most of us think the same 90% of the thoughts every day, and most of these thoughts are negative. There are over 20 mental distortions that twist our reality to seem more negative.

There is an easy tool that Dr. Daniel developed, to turn ANTs into PETs, and it’s in a form of asking yourself 5 simple questions whenever you notice a negative thought.

Is the negative thought true? Can I absolutely know that it is true? How do I react when I feel this thought? Who would I be without this thought? What’s the opposite thought?

3. What’s Pulling, What’s Pushing?

If you are like most of us, you have had a dilemma when you didn’t know what to choose between two or more choices. Most of us have such dilemmas daily.

And this is normal. However, most people don’t really know how to choose the best out of all their conflicting options.

There is a simple mental tool you can use, in a form of 2 simple questions that will clarify so many things for you.

Whenever in a dilemma between two choices ask yourself “What’s pulling me in that direction, love or fear, abundance or scarcity?”

Now ask yourself “What’s pushing me in the opposite direction, love or fear, abundance or scarcity?” Choose the options that are inspired by abundance and love.

ALIYAH MARR: “Duality’s Equation In The Matrix”

Have you ever wondered how the Matrix works? How did things get this way and how do you “unplug” from the Matrix? The self-appointed rulers of the Matrix don’t want you to know the following secret: the Matrix takes advantage of the balancing principle of duality, which is a mechanical law, not an ethical one. By keeping people in ignorance of the way reality truly works, the rulers can manipulate the laws of duality to serve themselves and exploit others.

Here is how it works: duality is an equation that must — emphasize must — balance, or the whole system collapses. If you throw a gross thing like obscene wealth on one side of the equation, it needs something of equal weight on the other side, such as abject poverty. But here is the real key:

The two sides of the equation must be equal in weight but not in size.

On a mechanical scale, a tiny piece of lead can balance a huge sack of feathers. The lead is small and dense, while the feathers take up lot of volume; the feathers occupy more space than the lead, but both objects weigh the same. The rulers of the Matrix use the mechanics of duality in order to maintain their position on the top of the pyramid. In their skewed version of duality’s equation, the extravagant wealth of one man is balanced by a huge amount of people who are dirt poor: the two sides of the equation are equal in weight but not in size.

In fact, in the Matrix, wealth must be contrasted by poverty or it is not considered wealth. In the Matrix Mind, the concept of universal wealth is illogical; it is a contradiction in terms. This is because valuation is one of the guiding principles that supports the hierarchical system. In the Matrix everyone can’t be equally wealthy, somebody has to have more than someone else or the system breaks down.

The controllers manipulate duality by putting extremes on either end of the scale. This trick works with power too: one person with great power is balanced by a large disenfranchised populace. The definition of power in the Matrix is “power over.” The more people the rulers control, the more power they think they have.

Using the simple mechanics of duality, the rulers of the Matrix have maintained their colossal wealth and power for eons. They constructed a hierarchy that puts them at the top. Then they reinforced their rule with a belief system for the masses — a fiction the rulers created to keep the populace from ever discovering the true nature of reality; this is how they kept the keys to creation for themselves. All social structures support the Matrix by promoting the same belief system under different guises, guaranteeing that the ignorant, exploited masses continue to look for some outside force to save them, never knowing that the power they seek is within.

In duality we experience separation — separation from self-knowledge, from the Self, Source, All That Is. This simple fact of existence has been taken to the extreme and exploited by the rulers of the Matrix for personal gain. Their system relies upon the continued ignorance and spiritual immaturity of the populace; the world rulers are betting that you won’t see through their machinations. The Matrix keeps us in ignorance through our beliefs and fears; it tells us that inequality, greed, and exploitation are natural. When we believe that the Earth is a survival-based planet, we fear powerlessness and poverty. As we engage in fear, we reinforce and recreate the Matrix.

All systems can be reduced to a few fundamental principles that guide them and provide stability and structure. The core premises that drive the Matrix are:

  • Valuation
  • Control
  • Profit

Putting the principles of the Matrix into practice results in the following conditions; they may not be in your backyard but you can bet they exist somewhere in the world:

  • Valuation produces Inequality
  • Control produces Exploitation
  • Profit results in Privation

Poverty, exploitation, and starvation are the results of a profit-motivated system that allows some people to benefit from the suffering of others. It might look OK on the surface, but the deeper reality is that everyone is affected, no one is exempt from the karma of lower consciousness. If one person is enslaved, the whole world is enslaved; if one person is hungry, the entire world is hungry. When a few people control common resources — when they can drive the valuation of those resources higher by withholding them from the populace — the world experiences scarcity.

Each one of the principles that support the Matrix can be replaced by its polar opposite:

  • Valuation is replaced by Equality
  • Control is replaced by Respect
  • Profit for a few is replaced by Universal Abundance

The old paradigm of control and domination can exist only when the individuals in it remain ignorant of the greater reality of Love. Once a child learns to read, she cannot unlearn it; she reads wherever she goes. In the same way, once the realization of Oneness and connection is reached, you cannot ignore what you know; you spread Oneness and Love to everyone around you. The Matrix crumbles because its energetic support of fear and scarcity is gone.
