NOTHING "brings" you joy! | The Mental Toughness Coach - Chris Dorris

NOTHING “brings” you joy!


When we are being powerful, we own the fact that we create our moods, or our states. One of my favorite phrases is, “Create the state, don’t wait!”

Nothing brings you joy. Similarly, nothing makes you anxious. You CREATE every state you ever experience with the way you CHOOSE to think. When you think well, you feel great. When you think poorly, you feel bad. Simple as that.,

The challenge: remembering this.

The practice:

  1. CATCH yourself feeling unpleasant
  2. OWN that mood by telling yourself you’re feeling that way because of how you’re choosing to think, NOT because of what’s happening
  3. REPLACE your thought and create a new state
