It’s amazing what you can achieve when you learn to communicate with your subconscious mind.
When you cease to be a stranger to the part of yourself responsible for all your motivation and creative problem solving…
…You become unstoppable.
You can set a goal, pass that goal to your subconscious through visualization and affirmations, and then work almost effortlessly towards attaining that goal because you have the full force of your subconscious resources at your disposal.
But, when it comes to affirmations…
Actions speak louder than words.
You can use all the positive visualization and affirmations in the world and still get nowhere if your conscious actions contradict the goal you’ve set.
- If you set a goal to eat healthier but keep all the unhealthy food in your pantry, what you’re really telling your subconscious is that you’re just taking a break, and you’re keeping the junk food around for later. And you will, inevitably, get around to eating that junk food.
- If you set a goal to boost your self-worth and act more confidently, but continue to hang out with people who don’t respect you and make you feel inadequate, you’re telling your subconscious that you don’t really deserve a sense of self-worth.
- If you set a goal to learn a new skill but never get around to actually practicing that skill – if you instead watch TV or play video games – you’re obviously telling your subconscious where your true priorities are by what you choose to do in your spare time.
The bottom line is this:
You can achieve way more when your subconscious mind and your conscious mind are on the same page.
When you are consciously working towards a goal AND your subconscious mind is in alignment with that goal – when it’s helping you from behind the scenes – you will stay motivated, work harder, get more inspiration, handle new challenges with confidence, and solve complex problems with ease.
But, just as easily, you can sabotage all that progress whenever you consciously choose to act against the goal you’ve set.
When you tell your subconscious – through your actions – that you’re not really serious, it will simply stop helping. It will obey that new command without question or argument…
And all your positive affirmations and visualizations get thrown out as you find yourself right back at square one.
Something to think about if you ever find yourself seemingly sabotaging your own efforts:
“What are my actions saying about my true beliefs?”
This is an amazingly insightful post.
It’s the diffeerence between consciously and subconsciously creating and manifesting your life and fantasizing and daydreaming your life away.
At every moment your actions are speaking out loud.
