The term “Master Mind” always seems to have a sinister connotation. Not here in this third personality type of using your mental powers. The “MASTER MIND” in the Ikea BESTÅ TV storage combo entertainment center with sliding doors illustration is the one that examines the manual then looks over the image of the finished product then makes sure all the pieces to the project are there. They will make sure they have the right tools to accomplish their goal of putting the Ikea BESTÅ entertainment center together.

The “MASTER MIND” for your mental health recovery is YOU! Yet, you need to make sure you have the right tools to reach recovery. These tools can be types of cognitively therapeutic exercises such as “Deep Breathing, physical exercise, or artistic exercise. The “MASTER MIND” goes even further because he/she knows the key to devolving true mental powers requires bringing other minds together and learning from them and building on the foundation. The ‘MASTER MIND” is not afraid to ask for help. Yes, just like if we get stuck putting together the BESTÅ entering center, we can always call the Ikea customer service line.
With regards to mental health, we can have much “customer service” i.e. friends we can call if we get stuck in an episode. Even if we have a mental block, the “MASTER MIND” has the right mental powers to weather the storm.
Are you a Master Mind?
P.S. – IKEA has not endorsed me or my blog in any way, the only reason why I reference them is because I still have left-over parts from the last think I put together form them and I was hoping I could figure out where they went.
