You are smarter than you know. In fact, youíre probably a genius. You have the ability to function at exceptional levels in your preferred way of learning and thinking.
Every person regardless of background, education, or social status has enormous mental capacity that he or she habitually fails to use. There is no problem you cannot solve or overcome and no goal you cannot achieve when you learn how to unleash the power of your mind and use it to its full capacity.
Your mind is the most accomplished instrument for goal achievement and lifelong success ever imaginable on this earth. Your creative capacity is unlimited. In fact, years of scientific studies have concluded that the thinking cells in the human brain are equal to all the known atoms in the universe.
People who use their mind more fully are the ones that prosper beyond their wildest expectations. Every person has two different minds. Your conscious and subconscious. Your conscious mind is the one with which people are familiar. Your conscious mind is your thinking mind. It uses logic, deduction, reason, and sound judgment to reach its conclusions and make its decisions. Your choices in life are made by you conscious mind.
If your conscious mind is able to do everything I just told you, then what is the value of your subconscious mind? What can it do for you? How can you use it to your advantage?
Only a small percentage of people ever discover the subconscious mind, understand how it works, and then learn how to use it to achieve complete success in whatever they set out to accomplish.
When you learn how to use your subconscious mind properly, you will discover that the choices you make in life with your conscious mind will be guided, influenced, and directed by the data stored and received from your subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind never acts of its own volition or its own initiative. It must be given goals to reach, objectives to attain, or problems to solve before it will do anything at all for you. In fact, the primary purpose of your subconscious mind is to help you succeed in life by achieving all the goals that you have given to it with your conscious or thinking mind.
By the same token, if you donít give your subconscious mind any goals to reach or problems to solve, it will never do anything at all for you. But if you give it specific objectives to reach, it will go all out to achieve results for you.
For example, if you want a bigger house, an expensive car, a better job, improved health, better personal relationships with your family, your friends, customers, clients, and business associates, all you have to do is tell your subconscious mind exactly what you want. It goes to work to make your goal a reality. But you must be specific in your instructions to your subconscious mind. It will never act on vague or abstract information. You must firmly establish your goal and then let your subconscious mind help you achieve it.
Donít get in the way or interfere with its work by telling it what to do or how to solve your problems with your conscious mind. You will only slow down the process or perhaps completely prevent it.
Your subconscious mind is lying there dormant within you, just waiting for you to tap into its power. It is unlimited, infinite, and inexhaustible in its ability to bring success to you. The subconscious mind never rests. It keeps right on working for you even while you are sleeping. All you have to do is just activate it and start its marvelous power working in your life.
Your subconscious mind works much like a computer. It is an extremely intricate electronic goal-seeking mechanism with its functions and actions programmed into it by your conscious mind. However, it is much more complex than the most advanced computer ever conceived by man.
The subconscious mind works less rapidly and not as accurately in some respects as a man-made computer does, because the subconscious mind is subject to all the emotions of the conscious mind. Even the most complex and sophisticated computer is left far behind when it is compared with the subconscious mindís staggering capacity to do the unbelievably hard tasks. But thatís the way it should be, because the computer originated in the mind of man, not the other way around.
Unfortunately only 5 percent of people ever achieve anything of major importance in their lives simply because itís easier to fail or to just coast along not living up to your potential to succeed. I believe as Earl Nightingale did, that success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. If a person is working toward a specific goal that he or she wants to achieve then he or she is a success.
Who then, is a failure? Well, a failure is someone who has both the talent and the ability to accomplish much more than he or she has. If a person has no predetermined goal to attain, then that person is not living up to his or her fullest potential, then they are a failure, no matter how high their social or business positions are or how much money they make.
Success requires diligent and strenuous effort as well as perseverance. But itís a proven fact that most people are lazy but still manage to get by. For example, the person who is a failure does not have to work as hard as the successful one. And he or she can avoid the struggle and pain of that strenuous effort to attain success by just taking it easy and coasting along.
In order to achieve success you must first deprogram your subconscious mind of its failure attitudes and ideas. Once you do, whatever has been previously programmed into your subconscious mind by your conscious thinking mind will be forgotten. Although those memories of defeat and failure will always be retained they will never again surface to enter your conscious mind unless you allow them to do so by actively calling them back. But for all practical purposes, as long as you think positively, and not negatively, they will be forgotten by your conscious mind.
This means that if you or someone else has been feeding thoughts of defeat and failure into your subconscious mind, you are going to get back negative ideas, defeat, and failure, because the output of your subconscious mind always equals its input. Always remember, you are want you think about, most of the time.
However, you can quickly override those negative concepts that you have stored in your subconscious mind when you start programming it with ideas on success and achievement. The instant that you do that, your subconscious mind determines they your conscious mind is no longer interested in defeat and failure, so it buries those attitudes and ideas deeper and deeper into its memory.
How, then, can you accomplish such a drastic and important change in your thinking from negative to positive? By using two extremely simple rules that are really the golden keys that will unlock the door to successful accomplishment for you: Act as if it were impossible to fail, and second, do the thing you fear to do and youíll have the power to do it.
This doesnít mean that you will not have to endure some minor and temporary defeats. You no doubt will, as all people who achieve success have.
But that doesnít mean you have failed, it only means you have encountered a temporary setback. Every time you try something that does not work, you know to cross that that one off your list and try again and even again if that is necessary. Thatís exactly what Thomas Alva Edison did when he was working on inventing the first commercially practical incandescent light bulb.
So never give up. You too can survive temporary setbacks and still succeed in life. Just act as if it were impossible to fail and program your subconscious mind with that positive idea. And do the things you fear to do and youíll have the power to do it. But if you donít do the thing you fear to do, you will never gain the power to do it. It is just that simple.
Whatever it is that you want to gain the power to do and become proficient at, you must make the first move yourself. Once you do and begin to unleash the power of your subconscious mind, your success will be unlimited.
