Audio On How to Train Your Subconscious Mind Contributed by Our Friends at Success Archive

In today's audio Joe Vitale talks with us about how to train your subconscious mind to get you what you want.

How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind for Success and Happiness

The mind is the seat of thought. It is divided into two main sections. These are the conscious and the subconscious mind. The conscious mind actively performs tasks such as calculations, logical comparisons as well as the active direction of our bodies. On the other hand, the subconscious part of the mind controls functions in your body that is supposed to happen automatically. Examples of such functions are the heartbeat and breathing processes. According to scientific study, your subconscious mind occupies 90% of your mind while the conscious one occupies only 10%. This silent helper stores information such as your personal beliefs, memories, skills, life experiences, circumstances as well as all the images that you have ever seen in your life. It also has the ability to trigger emotions automatically and does not have the ability to tell the difference between what is real and what is fictional. As such, it has a significant effect on our lives yet can easily be manipulated. You can actually train your subconscious mind such that it will help you to attract exactly what you desire in life. Here is how to re-program your subconscious mind for greatness and success.

Visualize the success that you want
One of the most effective ways to reprogram your subconscious mind is by visualizing exactly what you desire for your life. Examples of such a vision is seeing yourself living in a beautiful home of your own, having a specific number of kids, performing your dream job or even running a particular business. When you visualize specific things, you are able to direct your subconscious mind to the desired direction. When you know where you are going, your subconscious mind will get you there.

Have a specific vision
You should have a very specific and clear vision. The subconscious mind does not respond to generic or vague visions. Examples of such are, “I want to have a great life” or “I want to be wealthy.” These visions cannot be quantified because they are too general. Consequently, it becomes very difficult for the subconscious mind to take the proper steps towards these visions. As such, ensure that you feed specific, measurable and precise visions to your subconscious mind. This is a sure way to reprogram it to give you exactly what you desire.

Write down your goals
One of the main steps towards achieving your dream is to break it into goals. These should be quantifiable and achievable. To train your subconscious mind, you can write down 10 goals every morning after you wake up or right before you sleep in the evening. The act of writing down your goals-assists you to have a visual reminder of what you need to do prior to achieving your dream. By writing these goals down, your subconscious mind begins to work towards them. It is important to know that this part of your mind does not judge. Therefore, it can't tell what is fictional and what is real. This gives you the freedom to visualize dreams that are as lofty as you can. Your subconscious mind will surprise you by manifesting them for you.

Engage in affirmations
Being a declarative statement which you make to yourself, and to reprogram your subconscious mind, you can engage in repetitive positive affirmations. Affirmations actually become self-fulfilling prophecies after a while. According to a leading neuropsychiatrist named Dr. Mona L. Schulz, repeating affirmations physically actually changes the neural pathways in your brain. This works to eventually produce and help you in acting upon the new belief which you have. Affirmations are a highly effective way to train your subconscious mind and examples of affirmations can be “I shall use my talents, gifts, and abilities to create wealth” or “I am living a life of purpose and wealth.”

Performed for centuries, meditation is a highly effective way to reprogram your subconscious mind while creating a sense of tranquility and stillness in the mind. This prepares it for any thoughts which you desire to implant in it: Meditation makes your subconscious mind much more receptive. When you create ambitious goals and plans, give them time to take root in your subconscious mind by meditating. Another benefit of meditation is that it helps you to train your mind such that it can maintain focus for a long time without getting distracted which enables you to engage more actively in the daily activities you perform so as to achieve your goals.

Engage in positive self-talk
Similarly to engaging in affirmations, self-talk is highly important to us. According to a book written by Shad Helmstetter and titled “What to Say When You Talk To Yourself”, we spend more time talking to ourselves than any other person on a daily basis. The things which we tell ourselves determine our mood, decisions, and attitude and, yes, we are highly likely to believe the things which we tell ourselves. By taking control of your self-talk, you can start to live your life according to the way you want it. Your subconscious mind can believe this self-talk and begin to manifest the things which you tell it. As such, right after your affirmations spend some time every day making positive self-talk about the things which you desire in your life. By repeating this every single day, you are guaranteed to start creating a new positive reality for yourself.

Behave as though your dream has already been fulfilled
As you program your subconscious mind, you need to act as though the change you desire has already happened. Programming your mind requires that you envision yourself in the state which you want. When you begin to behave and act as though you have already achieved the thing which you desire, your subconscious will get attuned to this reality and you will experience this change in your life. If you want to be wealthy, you need to start acting like a wealthy person. Perform some research and find out the behavior of wealthy people. Once you identify what they do, proceed to mimic the things that you can. Over time, your subconscious will catch on and continue the process. You will find yourself achieving exactly what you wanted and so much more.

The Important Take Away
The subconscious mind is the silent pilot in our lives. It absorbs everything and has the capacity to help us create the reality which we desire in our lives. By performing the tips indicated above, we can reprogram the subconscious mind and begin to create our own destiny. Try them and see how much closer you will get to your dream.

This podcast stays on point with its model. Not one episode over seven minutes so it's easy to take in and use. Topics are clear and concise. Also if there's more to the topic outside of what's put into the episode the source materal is given in the show notes so that the listener can dive further into the topic.

Keep up the great work and thank you!

Short & Sweet

I love getting a short boost of motivation and positivity in the morning. This podcast is the perfect length and I love the variety of speakers.

Houseoflegendspodcast - from United Kingdom

I was surprised...

I was surprised that 7 minutes of excepts of speeches could have anything new to tell me about personal development. But the value is in the curation, something that is highly undervalued. The host has a knack for picking something of value for me. My next step is choose a little 7 min job every day to do while listening ... maybe even sort out my garage ! Now THAT will be a triumph

KitKat4130 - from United Kingdom

Great podcast

This is awesome. Is exactly what they say it is.

It’s super inspiring and motivating. I love how every episode starts with a thought of the day and is packed with the most incredible information you could possibly get for the day. Absolutely wonderful show I highly recommend everyone listen to it. They’re truly the best seven minutes of the day.

I needed this

Ever have one of those middle of the day meltdowns? But you still have hours of stuff to do and you can’t leave the office and medicate for two hours. Breathe. Headphones. 7 minutes. It works for me every time.

Make my morning, every morning

Always something insightful and motivating in every podcast! I have listened to many more and none come close to the value I get when listening to 7 good minutes!

Amber Romulus - from United Kingdom
