The human mind can be separated into the conscious and the subconscious mind. Only a small minority has ever managed to tap into the subconscious mind, understand and utilize its power fully. Because the subconscious mind never needs to rest, it is boundless and unlimited in its ability to bring you success. However, if you do not utilize it, it will be left to atrophy. Everyone has tremendous mental capacity; it is up to you to make the most of it.
If you leave it, your subconscious mind will be like a garden that is unattended - the weeds will take over. Use affirmations to your advantage at the optimum times when your subconscious mind is listening.
Be the person you admire
Make a list of the attributes you most admire in others and incorporate these into your own life—one by one. When you surround yourself with positive images or sounds, your subconscious mind will imprint those images or record those sounds in your head. I’m not talking about your conscious mind, but rather the subconscious. Your subconscious mind is lying there dormant within you, just waiting for you to tap into its power.
The Conscious Mind
The conscious mind is the one that you are perhaps more aware of. It is the one you use to make decisions, choices and conclusions, or to put forward logical arguments and sound deductions. In order to succeed in life and get ahead of the competition, you would be well aided by the ability to use your mind more fully. This involves engaging the subconscious mind.
The Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind takes instructions from the conscious mind without questioning, and takes action to achieve the directions through constant repetition and affirmations. It has one main purpose: to achieve the goals that you set with your conscious mind. Without such goals, it will not be called into function, and will simply be a dormant power left untouched.
This is an important thing to take note of, because the subconscious never acts on its own without direction. It is unable to reason, and simply accepts all the information that you feed it because it is unable to distinguish between what is reality and what is not. One of the best ways to affect it is by surrounding yourself with positive affirmations and convictions that will move you towards your goals. Negative information and environments do the opposite, and it is best to eliminate them.
Be the Person you Want to Be
Your subconscious mind never rests, even when you are sleeping. You can be the person you want to be by tapping into this power. Make a list of the characteristics and attributes you wish to achieve, and slowly integrate it into your life. There are many techniques for engaging the power of the subconscious mind, by making the conscious direction to keep it clear and without negative affirmations. A negative affirmation will result in your own self-destruction, as the subconscious acts on achieving the affirmations that you set it out to.
When you learn how to utilize and control the power of your mind, greatness is attainable. In order to be a winner, you must first think like a winner, and leave the rest to your subconscious mind to achieve.
