You can and should unlock the power of your subconscious mind, because your subconscious mind is a powerful thing. Henry Ford, the American captain of industry, business magnate, and founder of the Ford Motor Company, once said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”
What he meant was, whether you expect to succeed or expect to fail, your expectations become self-fulfilling prophecies.
How is this possible? Is the human mind really that powerful?
When you expect failure, you communicate your expectations to your subconscious mind. Your brain accepts the notion and prompts your mindset as if you will fail. You actually program yourself in a negative way to do the things that will lead to failure. This negative thinking creates anxiety that contributes to stress.
In contrast, when you expect to succeed, you empower your subconscious to prompt success.
That’s the power of your subconscious mind!
Tap Into the Power of Your Subconscious Mind
To this day, I vividly recall my self-talk as I sat to take the written examination for my post-graduate degree. I studied, reviewed, reviewed, and reviewed again. I recall saying to myself something that sounded like, “Okay, let me show you what I have learned and how I am qualified and deserve to receive the degree.” I often reflect what a great feeling I had taking the final exam for my doctorate.
Optimism and positivity can lead to many things, including an extra effort that could be the difference between success and failure. In short, your subconscious can be the spark that leads to success.
To emphasize the point: Positive self-talk plays a substantial role in your success and happiness. Negative self-talk has the opposite effect.
Tip: Indulge in positivity, rather than listening to your doubts.
