Successful people have control of their lives and also of their thoughts.
They have the strength of will, self-discipline and emotional intelligence to design a life they are proud of, and it is because they take the time to learn how their mind works and what is the best way to use it to their benefit.
So that you can do the same and become a successful person it is important that you learn to understand and analyze your mind. Which consists of two parts, the conscious and the subconscious.
The conscious mind
Your conscious mind is where you can get to generate thought and make plans, that’s where all the logic happens.
Your conscious mind is the one that directs everything, absolutely everything, but beyond that, one more does the important work. Your conscious mind directs and executes. But there is one more, called subconscious.
In order to control our subconscious mind you need several things, among them, willpower.
Have you ever used it? Have you done incredible things with your willpower?
This happens when we train our mind to direct our subconscious.
When we learn to drive you can get to do incredible things.
This is a great challenge, but once mastered, you can do great things with your life and you can achieve goals and dreams.
The subconscious mind
Your subconscious mind is the part of which you are not aware. It is the workhorse that performs 95 to 99 percent of everything you think, do and say. The subconscious ensures that your heart keeps beating, your lungs continue to breathe, your muscles remember how to walk.
The subconscious is like the autopilot so to speak.
Many habits, reactions, actions, occur at a subconscious level and we are not aware of this. Many people fail to understand the power of the subconscious mind, therefore, they do not know how to start working on them.
The subconscious can get to boycott several things in your life, since some negative behaviors and thoughts are generated automatically in your subconscious.
And this generates a kind of stagnation, especially when we do not analyze how our mind is working.
Remember that habits are actions that are highly repetitive and many times we do not notice that we already do it automatically.
Many actions and decisions in our lives are made automatically or because we are used to them.
An example can be going to college, buying a house, getting married. And I’m not saying it’s wrong, if it’s what you really want, what I’m saying is that many times we do not analyze how our mind is really working and the effect it is having on our lives.
There lies the problem. Most of us live our whole lives without making a clear decision about what we want to do with our life or who we want to be. We allow our subconscious to control us with the predetermined life provoked by social conditioning.
But you, you really have the power to do unimaginable things, and the only thing that stops you is your mind. The way in which your subconscious works is crucial for your present and your future.
Everything you propose, you can do it. You can change your life, if you change your ideas, if you analyze your actions. But first, you must make the decision to do it, and not just say it. And this is achieved by really struggling, taking time to analyze and put into practice different beliefs to those that limit you.
And you can start with this powerful statement
You are NOT your thoughts
Your thoughts do not define you, you must disassociate yourself completely from this idea, because it is a powerful truth.
The idea that we have of ourselves, is made by that internal dialogue that we have constantly, we repeat an idea so many times that we believe it. We believe it is a truth and it should not be like that.
The worst, we do not repeat it even for years and we take it as a truth. You have to change your thoughts to change your life and, at first, you could resist the idea of losing your identity. But believe me that will not happen, because by questioning you do not get lost, you are finding yourself.
When you begin to understand that you are something much larger than your thoughts, you begin to understand that you have the power to choose what thoughts you will think and, ultimately, begin to reprogram your subconscious mind.
