Today I am going to talk about the power of auto-suggestion and the subconscious mind. To be honest, this is something that I recently began to believe in and have quickly come to realize the power of it.
Napoleon Hill defines auto-suggestion as the “agency of communication between the conscious mind and the seat of action for the subconscious mind”. Let’s break this down a little bit. Basically, your subconscious mind is your most powerful and valuable asset. Your subconscious mind drives all your actions and results in life without you even realizing it.
The Subconscious mind
The subconscious mind, however, can only be accessed through the conscious mind. If we do not control our thoughts and emotions we can poison our subconscious mind and harm ourselves without realizing it. The subconscious mind is much like your body. This is because if you feed it with junk foods and don’t exercise you will end up lethargic, overweight and with little energy. If you feed it properly with a nutritious diet, exercise regularly and get a good sleep every night you will have much higher energy levels, feel better and accomplish more.
The subconscious mind is similar in many ways. If you constantly have negative thoughts or emotions circulating through your head like “Oh I can’t do that”, “there’s no way I could lose ten pounds that quickly” or “I could never be as great a player as her”, no matter the negativity, you are hurting yourself more than you realize.
Your mind begins to tell yourself that you will never achieve these things and you are not worthy of them.
A quote from Brian Tracy explains the significance of what begins to happen to your mind very well.”Your subconscious mind is an unquestioning servant that works day and night to make your behavior fit a pattern consistent with your emotionalized thoughts, hopes, and desires. Your subconscious mind grows either flowers or weeds in the garden of your life, whichever you plant by the mental equivalents you create”.
So if you are feeding your subconscious mind with crap your results will be crap. You NEED to be positive, optimistic and have an abundance attitude. How do you plant a beautiful garden in your mind as opposed to a desert with weeds?
