How to Reprogram Your Mind to Success

In this article, we are exploring the ways that people can change their minds to look at issues from a different perspective. Even change their beliefs about something if they want to change it after learning something new.

Learning how to reprogram our minds is something that people look at differently. Each person will take away lessons that are personal to them and their particular beliefs. One thing to keep in mind is that people change their opinions all the time, whether it is good or not depends on what the change effects.

People who believe in the law of attraction think that they change the universe around them by changing their own beliefs about something. While faith is a powerful thing for the individual; someone’s thoughts without any further action will not have any effect on their surrounding environment.

On the other hand, there is a great deal of influence that our thoughts and beliefs have over our personal lives and the actions that people take in improving their own lives and the lives of people that they come in contact within their daily lives.

How to Reprogram the Mind

Over the past thirty-five years, the change that has taken place in the area of safety in the chemical industry has happened because of the collective efforts of the government and the companies increasing the focus on safety.

Not only has the focus been on operating safely, but also on changing the way individual employees view safety. Now in reputable companies, being safety-minded is expected from an applicant for a position with the company.

This type of learning process when used in other areas of life, like learning to live a healthy lifestyle, will reprogram the mind of the individual to think differently about health issues.

Employers are moving towards getting their employees to lead healthier lifestyles to improve the productivity of their workforce, reduce health insurance rates, and improve the morale of the people.

The best way to reprogram the mind is to have a program in place that reinforces the values that you want to implement into your way of thinking.

Man Training

This idea is what led me to sign up for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) program to become a Health Coach. In the last eight months, my research has been driving me to the concept of diet playing a significant role in health.

The old saying “You are what you eat” comes to mind here and that little nugget of truth is something that I have taken to heart and continuously improving both knowledge and practice of eating for a healthy lifestyle.

The program will take a year to complete, and from the initial enrollment and the information presented during the introduction of the fundamentals indicates that this will increase my knowledge on health, diet, and mental state of mind to make the necessary adjustments to achieve my goals.

Principles for a Healthy Lifestyle

The principles that we used to guide our lives are much more important than the practices that we do in general.

What I mean by that is that the method of changing a dietary choice, or switching diets is not as important as sticking to the principle of improving health by living a healthy lifestyle and incorporating what is working.

One of the critical themes taught from the Institute for Integrated Nutrition is bio-individuality, which asserts that everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another person.

Acknowledging the fact that people are different and that products that work for one person, it does not mean that it will work for others. Common sense tells us this information, but with all the advertisements out there putting all the misleading information, it is easy to be influenced by it.

Principle drives to target

This effect is why sticking to the principle is so important. We can reset ourselves once we realize the error in our thinking, good knowledge and testing the theories to see which one is working. Results are the goal; not being right and winning some argument to prove a point in something.

Making a healthy lifestyle a principle to live by is something that will stick with a person where diets will change over time and they should because the needs change as we go through life.

Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle

Depending on the sources of the information presented to you and how much of that information comes in the form of advertisements. Our vision of what a healthy lifestyle is will change.

Think about the advertisements that flooded the media since the 1950s until the present day. How much influence does this have on you? That is going to depend on how much you subject yourself to the advertisements.

The reason is simple, the advertisements work on you, and they affect. People like to think that they are strong-minded and that it does not affect them, while that might be true if you are paying attention, what about the times you are not thinking about it?

Effects accumulate over time, and before you know it, your thoughts can change, especially if you do nothing to combat the information.


One good thing that we see today that is different is that most advice on eating contains the phrases to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. They do not focus on that unless they are selling fruits and vegetables.

Finding the right lifestyle that makes you as healthy as you can be is the best target to shoot for in looking at the healthy lifestyle ideas presented to you.

Remember the advertisers in the 1950s made smoking look like a good thing to do after a meal to aid in digestion, now we all know that is not true, but how many advertisement ideas presented today will look just as ridiculous in the years to come?

Reprogram the Mind for a Healthy Lifestyle

To reprogram the mind, we need to make some conscious decisions on the changes that we desire and find a program to support those changes.

It is easy to know that we need to eat better and get more exercise, but how do you go about making those changes and finding out how to make it a lifestyle change that will stick for the long term?

Mostly, you have to get your thinking to align with your new goals. After your thoughts are in the right place, then your actions will match what you want to do. Remember that when you are out of shape for physical exercise, it will take time to get in the proper physical condition and there is going to be times of being sore.

Soreness is handled better by some people than for others and will need time set aside to deal with it accordingly. The mental attitude is crucial to maintain during these times and causes many people to stop their program before they reach their goals.

Equipe Yourself

One thing that I notice about getting older and since turning 50 it is more difficult to lose weight, and the aches and pains seem to last longer than before.

That is a hurdle for people to deal with and everyone is different so do not let someone else negatively affect you when things are not going to your liking.

Make a plan and stick to it until you have something you want to revise or decide that it is not working and come up with a new program.


The fundamental concept of this post is to think about how your thinking affects your lifestyle and the choices that you make. Making changes is relatively easy, and people are doing it every day.

For the changes to be considered good, they must contribute to a healthy lifestyle that promotes eating well and getting enough exercise to be healthy.

Change is going to happen whether we want it or not that is inevitable in life. We can direct changes to improve our lives by consciously putting the right programs into our thinking, knowing which programs are good is something worth spending the time to find out.

    Hello. A healthy lifestyle is a must if you want real change. It also changes the chemistry in your body so your thoughts will be more positive and lightweight.

    But what I think people need is an incentive to do a healthy lifestyle; a real solid reason to do that if they have that solid reason and want to progress, they will find somehow the way to break away from the “mental chains” that hold them.

    I changed almost entirely to a vegan diet because I was tired of this massive head and overall heavy feeling surrounding me. Well, I took every day Depon pills before that, so I had serious reason to start a healthy diet and whole lifestyle.

    Hope your site helps as many people as possible. Cheers

      Thanks for your comment and sharing your experience with switching diets to one that addresses the issues that you were facing. I have to say that I have not heard about the heaviness that you mention but glad that you found what you are looking for in your dietary needs. 

  • Alex says:

    Interesting post! I like that this is focusing more on the mental aspect of losing weight, which is essential, but often not taken into consideration. I agree that changing the way we think about something is the first and crucial step of actually changing it.

    In my opinion, when setting my mind on a new goal, it has been helpful to create or leverage an unusual event that triggers my positive reaction (using a moment where I feel down to tell myself I don’t want to feel that way again, so I should work on myself). Do you also use these moments to create positive energy?

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for your comment and for bringing up the idea of using events that could be considered harmful but to take the experience and learn from it, therefore turning it into a positive outcome. 

      I have learned that it is better to maintain a positive attitude even in the face of something challenging because if we let the situation dictate our position, we will lose control very quickly.

  • Chris says:

    This article is on a great topic. To accomplish whatever it is we want out of life. We will have to program our mind to go in that direction. I will also agree with you stating that merely putting a thought out in the universe will not bring success without action from the individual. You geared your post more towards healthy eating. But yes the concept will work in any situation. Good job!

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thanks for your comment and glad you see the parallels with the concept of reprogramming your mind for anything in life, and yes my primary focus in on changing dietary and exercise patterns with people and my examples are with those thoughts in mind. 

  • coralie says:

    I enjoyed reading your post. The title is excellent, really catchy. Talking about reprogramming your mind to help change what it is we need to change makes sense. You break it down in a way that makes it seem almost easy to do.

    Funny that what we put in our mouth determines how our mind thinks in sort of a way. My Dr. always says that everything in life starts with the gut. This post also seems to lean that way, so great job.

    Cool idea and concept. Best of luck

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thanks for your comment and every source on health-related issues comes back to the diet and getting proper nutrition. Most people know or think they know what is right for them, but their actions do not align with that, and they end up making poor choices daily. The only way to correct the process is to change the thought process and look at food sources differently.

  • Michel says:

    This article certainly gives us some food for thought thank you.  The way we think or train our minds to believe certainly does change how we live our lives. 

    The tricky part is the self-discipline that most of us lack to achieve our goals. Or the long term motivation to keep going at them. 

    Do you have any excellent courses or products you can recommend to help with reprogramming our minds? 

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thanks for your comments and while it is not easy to exercise the self-discipline if we start with small steps and build from each victory the self-discipline will develop over time. 

      Many courses can help you to improve your thought process, but I think the best method is for you to take small steps in the right direction and be careful when getting information from advertisements or the news because of their hidden agendas.

  • Marlinda Davis says:

    I needed to read this article. I like your emphasis on creating a healthy lifestyle being a big part of reprogramming your mind for success. It is something that I’ve been working hard to implement in my lifestyle. 

    I struggle with emotional eating which has made me very depressed throughout too much of my life. I hope that you continue to share the importance of health as it relates to success, good feelings and more!

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for your comment and glad that you found some helpful information form the post, we will continue to post articles on things that are found beneficial in the hopes of helping others along the way.

    To reprogram your mind to success is like the crisis circle. You view an issue from a perspective, you start turning it up and down, eventually from side to side, and you are getting stuck with it. When you step back and view it from a different perspective, the issue seems to be more comfortable to accept.

    Learning is a long life process and living a healthy life is part of a learning process. It takes time to form a new habit, but if you stick to it, in the end, will give results.

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for your comment and the excellent way to put the illustration about how to look at issues from all the angles before deciding on whether or not it is an appropriate response for you to take.
