“The most important words we will ever utter are those words we say to ourselves, about ourselves, when we are by ourselves.”-Al Walker
Many thousands of research tests and studies have proven that your subconscious mind does not care about the source of input. It will just take whatever it hears and catalogue it. Like all learning, that which it repeatedly hears, it begins to use to operate as basis of truth. This then forms a platform for actions and reactions that come without thinking.
Consider highly trained athletes for example. They have used repetition to the point where in given situations they automatically do the right thing, seemingly without thinking. Their subconscious knows what to do because it has been told over and over. How many things do you do in a day without consciously thinking about it? So who is directing these things?
Your subconscious can be conditioned and trained any way you’d like. So wouldn’t you want this 24 hour per day super brain on your team? Guiding you to success? Whatever you tell it enough, it will believe. Belief is a major component of all success journeys. So the question is what do you say to yourself?
Do you tell yourself you are dumb when you make a mistake? Do you tell yourself you can’t do something? Do you tell yourself you’re not…?
Make a point of listening to what you say to yourself. Catch yourself saying negative things to yourself. Do this consciously, daily, until you no longer say anything negative to yourself. Replace these negatives with positives.
Tell yourself you can. You are. You’re really smart. You succeed. You will. Use positive words to yourself, and you will be amazed at the difference it will make in a short period of time.
