Successful people have developed certain habits of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that separate them from the rest of the pack. If hard work, intelligence, desire, occupation or location is the major ingredient of success, then almost everyone in a particular state, doing the same job, with the same level of intelligence and qualification will be successful. But this is not the case. In every location, profession and industry, we have the winners and the losers. We know that there are highly intelligent people who are broke, unhappy and frustrated in life. We also have people of average intelligence who are doing very great in life.
Our mind is a powerful tool. It is the difference between living a life of abundance and a life of misery. When you understand the power of your subconscious mind and manage it effectively, you can transform your life. Your subconscious mind shapes your performance, productivity, ability to earn more money, relationship, self-image, goal setting and time management. If you are serious about living a good life, you must understand how your mind works and re-programme it to serve you better.
Your conscious mind is the seat of thoughts, consciousness, reason, intellect, judgement, imagination, willpower, desire and perception. Your conscious mind is connected with your brain and five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. It is the part of you that allows you to be aware of events around you. You are reading this fantastic information with the aid of your conscious mind (your sight, and brain). Thought energy is always flowing to you through your conscious mind. Information, desires, goals, tasks and ideas are thought energies.
Your conscious mind can accept or reject information because it is the seat of your willpower, reason and judgement. It is the gardener that plants information into your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind is the gateway to your subconscious mind. Nothing goes to your subconscious mind without first entering your conscious mind. Therefore, God has given you the power to choose what you feed your five senses with, which influences your belief system, emotions and habits. He has also blessed you with the ability to create original thoughts in your mind through the power of your imagination and willpower.
The subconscious mind is the seat of your memories, beliefs, experiences, skills, habits and emotions. Your subconscious mind is a huge databank that stores and retrieves all experiences, images, and words you have experienced in your life. It is your guiding system that informs your conscious mind on the information, idea, danger or opportunities to process. Your subconscious mind is conditioned through repetition of thoughts, ideas and information from your childhood till date.
Your subconscious mind is a fertile land; whatever you plant into it will germinate and shape your results. It only accepts information; it doesn’t reject. Any emotionalised thought, idea or image impressed on the subconscious mind by the conscious mind will be accepted.
Your subconscious mind is on auto-pilot. It works automatically to keep you alive and consistent with your belief system. It is the power that controls your body temperature, heart rate, breathing and cell division. Your subconscious mind is in each part of your physical body and sets your body into vibration. For example, when you are happy, it means your body is in a positive vibration based on the state of your mind. On the flip side, when you are sad, it signifies that your body is in a negative vibration based on the state of your mind.
Your subconscious mind is the part of you that keeps working when you’ve lost your conscious awareness. It works when you are asleep, drunk or in danger. It controls 95% of your results.
To transform your life, you must transform your subconscious mind. This is the major reason that success, greatness, riches and happiness start from within you, not outside of you.
There are various strategies you can use to transform your subconscious mind by unlocking the power of your conscious mind. These include visualisation, affirmation, meditation, gratitude journaling and goal setting.
However, the key to success is through repetition with emotion. Your current beliefs, self-image and habits were created through repetition – every day, every week, every month, and every year – for decades.
ACTION PLAN: Intentionally develop your subconscious mind through repetition with emotion. Meditate, affirm, and visualise on a daily basis.
AFFIRMATION: I have a marvellous mind. I am blessed and highly favoured.
