“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality…”– Earl Nightingale
The habits we chose to nourish our soul with each day are the ones that end up governing our lives…
Like caring for flowers in a garden, we can give our minds the nourishment they need for us to bloom.
If left unattended, our flowering minds begin to wilt…
How can we Harness the Power of the Subconscious?
Maybe you’ve noticed you have the ability to do some things without thinking much about them.
Have you ever found yourself lost in thought while driving to work… And when you arrive, you don’t remember how you got there…?
A little scary… But that’s your subconscious mind at work!
We don’t have to put a conscious effort into some things, like driving to work, because already we’ve engrained these patterns into our brain through daily repetition and practice.
It’s like running on autopilot.
We do many things on the daily where our subconscious mind takes over.
If We Aren’t Careful, Our Subconscious Mind Can Work Against Us…
If we are building patterns of negative habits like:
- Constant Complaining
- Negative Self-Talk
- Unwillingness to try/learn new things (stubbornness)
These types of habits work against us.
They don’t allow room for growth or change.
And they affect our health and well-being – and not in a good way…
So, How Do We Make Our Subconscious Mind Work For Us?
We harness the power of our subconscious mind by building in positive daily habits.
- Practicing Gratitude
- Positive Morning Routine
- Stretching our Minds with Reading and Writing
- Being open to New Things and Ideas
I Used to Hate the Saying:
“Fake it till you make it.”
But now, I embrace it.
Because our subconscious mind works in exactly this way.
We may not always feel grateful, or happy, or like putting in an effort…
But by making it a daily habit to ‘fake it’, overtime, your mind will start believing it…
And all of those positive habits… will be switched on autopilot!
And THOSE are the habits that will get you somewhere.
Those are the habits we need for growth and happiness.
