1. Train your mind. According to the much publicized but nevertheless baffling concept of the law of attraction, an individual can create his own destiny by becoming a powerful magnet. Whatever you set your mind to, you have the power to attract it. This means that if you have negative thoughts, then you will attract the negativity into your life. Likewise, if you have positive thoughts, you will then invite the positive energies as well.
This concept is also known by many as subliminal training or programming of the mind. A mind that is not trained subliminally will be led by the conscious mind. The problem with this is that the conscious mind is so bombarded with external influences, which are most often negative. On the other hand, the well-trained mind knows how to find its way to the goals that you want. It knows which influences to listen to and which to block.
2. Visualize your goals. The most effective way to train the mind is to enliven it with images of your dreams and goals. Imagine yourself being where you want to be. Constant visualization will motivate your mind and eventually create a strong belief system. Once the mind recognizes this belief system, it starts formulating its own plans on how to achieve those goals. And the mind’s unlimited power, which is not to be underestimated, will simply come out.
3. Listen to the right messages. Aside from mental images, you also have to train your mind to listen to the right messages. The world is full of voices telling us different things. Your parents may be whispering that you have not been good enough, your friends may be whispering that you don’t really belong, your colleagues may be whispering that they are better than you. All these get sucked in by the conscious state that it’s all you ever hear and believe in.
So you have to overcome these messages with the help of subliminal messages, soft voices that whisper positive things to the subconscious level. When the subconscious level is deeply rooted in positive thoughts and beliefs, its power will overtake that of the conscious mind.
Here are some messages worth listening to:
I am an achiever.
I hold the ability to reach my goals.
I can make things happen.
My desires are within my reach.
4. Tackle the hindrances. There will be hindrances along the way, that’s for sure. So if you want to successfully train the mind, you have to be prepared and determined. First, the mind absorbs many influences on a daily basis. If you want to successfully create a belief system, you have to reinforce the positive ideas in your mind every single day to prevent the negativity from creeping in.
Second, the subconscious is buried under a very thick, very persistent layer of influences coming from the social environment around you. This social environment can influence and even dictate the belief system that forms in your mind. If you want to access your subconscious, you’re going to have to do battle with these influences first. You can, however, use this to your advantage by placing yourself in an environment made up of success-driven people who have the same goals as you.
