How to Train Your Subconscious Mind to Help You Succeed
Your subconscious mind is a guiding force in your life that if you feed it well, it will help you push yourself toward success. The subconscious mind is always thinking even if you’re not totally aware of it at the time. It controls your automatic bodily functions and responds to what your conscious mind is telling it. To train your subconscious mind, you’ll need to be conscious about what you’re putting into your brain.
Visualize What You Want
You can use many methods for visualizing what you want, but the criteria should be that the vision needs to be very specific so that it’s complete. It’s a visualization so go for your most high pie in the sky ideal for the life you want to live. Put it down on paper, or on your computer, make it look realistic so that you can really believe it’s going to happen.
Set Goals Based on Your Vision
Once you have a vision of the complete picture of what you want, it’s time to set goals based on your vision. This is also a good time to fill out your vision more by using SMART goal setting techniques.
Once you have the vision and your goals set, take time to really solidify that in your mind by meditating and imaging your vision on a daily basis. While the goal of meditation is to empty your mind, everyone thinks about something at first, think about your vision in the most positive way possible and the steps you will take to get there.
Practice Positive Affirmations Daily
One of the best ways to give yourself motivation is to practice positive, daily affirmations. You can make these specific to your vision and your goals that you want to achieve. If you set a goal to stop smoking, for example, you might create a positive affirmation that says, “I’m a non-smoker and I feel fabulous.”
Practice Positive Self-Talk
Everyone has a negative Nancy inside their head that needs to be dealt with. The best way to deal with her is to turn every negative thought into a positive or neutral thought – if the thought is not negative, it can do wonders for your subconscious mind and vastly improve your mindset.
Focus on Gratitude
Each day take the time to be thankful for something. Even in the bad times, there is always something to be grateful about such as being able to be alive. Find the things that make you feel grateful and focus on those.
Act as If
When you want to achieve something, a powerful way to force your subconscious into submission is to act as if it’s already true. Want to be a nonsmoker, announce that you are and be a nonsmoker. It really is that simple in most areas of life.
You really can create the reality that you want to live by simply training your subconscious mind to be goal-focused, positively aligned, and confidently centered on the actions it takes for you to get to the goals you set.
