One of the things I teach my clients, and that you’ll often hear me speak about, is mindset. Our mindset affects everything we do and what we focus on with our minds is what we often end up with in our lives and businesses. If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I often talk about the conscious and subconscious mind.
The conscious mind is 10% of your brain and is the part of your mind that is responsible for logic and reasoning. If I asked you about the sum of one plus one it’s your conscious mind that is going to be used to make that addition.
The conscious mind also controls all the actions that you do on intention while being conscious. For example, when you decide to make any voluntary action like moving your hand or leg it is done by the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind is the part of your mind responsible for all of your involuntary actions. Your breathing rate and heart beats are controlled by your subconscious mind.
If you started to control your breath on intention then know that your conscious mind took charge while if you were breathing without being conscious of the breathing process then you know that your subconscious mind is in charge.
Your emotions are also controlled by your subconscious mind. That’s why you sometimes might feel afraid, anxious or down even though you don’t want to feel that way. For example, we might say with our conscious mind that we want to make $100,000 a year, but if deep down in our subconscious mind we don’t feel we deserve it, or that it’s possible, we will never achieve it.
So when we talk about letting go of fear, or changing our belief system one of the things to remember about the subconscious mind it that it cannot discern between what is real or what is imagined. That’s why vision boards and mind movies can be powerful tools to change belief systems in the subconscious mind.
I’m a big believer in the practice of using motivational videos and tapes to talk to our subconscious minds. Several months ago, I came across one of the best motivational videos I’ve seen and I’ve been consistently watching it (so have my kids-who can practically quote the entire thing!). If you haven’t seen this, I wanted to share it here. Please be sure and take about five minutes to watch this today-let me know what you think!
