Some brilliant person (I forget who) said your subconscious mind is like an incredibly powerful five-year-old. Little kids will believe anything you tell them — they’ll believe there are monsters under the bed! In the same way, your subconscious mind will believe anything you tell it.
If you keep telling yourself that life is a struggle, it’s hard to succeed, money doesn’t grow on trees, etc., etc., that’s exactly what your subconscious accepts to be true.
But if you start telling yourself that you have a goal, you have a dream, and you are now moving toward its creation, your subconscious mind will accept that too, and it’ll get to work and start showing you exactly what steps to take to start realizing your dream.
That is the power of your subconscious mind. It works for you in whatever way you suggest, following your instructions. So be careful what you tell yourself!
As Robert Collier said:
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.
Take a moment today to consider the instructions you’re sending to your subconscious mind. Are they helping you achieve the life you want?
