Think of the average mobile/cell phone. Less than ten years ago, people were happy with just having the ability to make calls wherever they went. Since smart phones and its applications were invented, cell phones became more than just being used for making calls.
Digital and serial entrepreneurs continue to re-program or replace apps that actually improve a smart phone’s capabilities.
In demand apps nowadays are for entertainment lifestyle, health, travel, work, productivity, and social media. These apps keep on revamping their features, so their appeal will have an innovative edge to the mass audience aside from its competitors.
Now, look at all the things that can now be done using all those apps. The possibilities are limitless!
However, you didn’t know what you were missing out until you got a smart phone and started using several apps.
Your mind is like a smart phone with limitless potential. Yet, most of that potential isn’t used.
How do you program your mind and benefit from that potential?
There are several ways to do so.
I’ll introduce you to the most simple and effective ways.
First, you must define what “success” means to you. Is it earning a higher income? Getting into better physical shape? Feeling happier? Stop and think about it. Knowing what you’re aiming for as important. And ask yourself: How will you know it when you get there?
Use positive affirmations.
Thoughts and words have the power to shape your destiny. Make sure you tell your mind what you want instead of what is unwanted. There is a difference when it comes to the subconscious mind. For instance, tell yourself: “Remember I put my car keys here,” instead of, “Don’t forget I put my car keys here.”
To the conscious mind, those look like the same instructions. However, to the subconscious mind, (which is approximately 95% of your mind while your conscious is only 5%), those are two entirely different instructions. One is suggesting ‘remembering’ while the other is suggesting ‘forgetting’.
It’s like saying, “Don’t think about a little dancing green leprechaun.” What image just danced through your mind?
Simplify things for yourself by speaking the language of your subconscious.
Program Your Mind to Visualize
If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand. Everything around you was first pictured in somebody’s mind before it was created.
Say you want to be a successful business owner. You must envision the details in your head.
- What type of business will you have?
- Who will you serve?
- How will it feel to serve those clients?
- How many employees do you want?
- How much income do you want to earn?
- How will you feel when you have achieved that goal?
Picture it all in the present moment, as in, feel as if it has already happened now. Once your mind starts to believe it, your subconscious will help you to think and act like that successful person.
In fact, your mind will help you come up with ways.
Here’s an example: Look around you and count how many red items you see.
How many yellow items did you see? You were only focussed on the red things, so your mind canceled out the yellow things. If you were to look around now, your mind would focus on yellow objects and glance over the rest.
That’s because what the mind focuses on grows.
When you set your goal and picture yourself already having achieved it, then your mind will help you to find ways of achieving it, ways which were possibly out of your awareness until now.
Overcome past programming that is holding you back. If you self-sabotage or have negative habits or low self-esteem, it is crucial you overcome these limiting ways in order for you to reach your goals. There are a few ways to help get the weeds out of your mind. My favorites are hypnotherapy, emotional freedom techniques, and good old courage. The mind can definitely be reprogrammed, and sometimes we need help to do so. For some people, being bold, facing those fears and doing it anyway can work.
Surround yourself with successful people.
If you want to get into better shape, hang out with people who exercise. If you want to make more money, spend time with people making the type of money you want to make. More is caught than taught, which means, their actions will rub off on you more than their words. Your mind subliminally mimics those you’re close to, which is why you are the friends you keep.
Program Your Mind to Commit to Succeeding.
This may sound like common sense, yet, to your subconscious mind, if you don’t commit, then it’s non-important to you, so your mind will default back to old programming. Make the decision that you will reach your goals no matter what it takes.
Program Your Mind to Believe in yourself.
This is the most important step. You must remind yourself you can do it. Over and over. Make it the mantra of your day. Start your day by telling yourself you can do this. Really let it sink into your mind.
