Learn How To Rewire Your Brain To Reach Your Goals Faster!
The subconscious mind is the most powerful force of humanity. What we believe, we become and by taking control over your mind you can create a whole new world around you that your conscious mind is too limited to imagine.
There is a quote in the bible that says “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” If somebody told you this on the street your mind would immediately respond that it is not possible and would reject this thought in fear of that you will be cheated. However, this example shows exactly how all of us limit ourselves just by rejecting a better future for us.
If you think back and remember moments in your life when everything changed and took a 180 degrees turn, those were the events when you most probably got pushed through your limitations and fears or allowed a new and unfamiliar mindset to enter. In order to grow and change your life radically, you just need to increase the frequency and depth of these events.
It is incredible how often we are exposed to opportunities that we turn down without even being aware of it. If you think about it, 95% of your thoughts are the same as they were yesterday and the day before. You take the same route on the road, choose your favourite beverage in the cafe and talk to the same people most of the time. Even if you move to another country, you will soon create a similar environment around you that you used to have, use the same way of expressing yourself and organizing your days. Our minds naturally look for the familiar as a survival mechanism in order to protect us.
In order to break the cycle and push myself out of my comfort zone, I have come up with a 30-days challenge in 2016. I committed to doing something every single day that is unfamiliar, uncomfortable, or which scares me. It didn’t have to be an adventure but something small on a weekday that I have been postponing forever or an idea I reject because I have never done it before. While doing this exercise, whenever your mind says I’ll do it another day, then you know that it is exactly the thing you need to act upon. After 30 days, you will find that your mind exceeds limitations and the impossible becomes possible.
Our conscious mind is only a tip of the iceberg made of the mountainous subconscious. Studies found that when waiters touched the hand of guests in a restaurant they received a significantly higher amount of tip on the bill. The guests were, of course, unaware of it. It is similar to the phenomenon that when you buy a new car, you will suddenly start to see that car everywhere in the city. It is not because you intend to give more money to a waiter who touches your hand for a second or that those cars were invisible before, but these examples show how many events around us are out of our focus and consciousness.
If you allow some time for yourself to be solely thinking of new possibilities and listen to the calling of new opportunities you will find that everything you need for change is already there in your mind, you just need to tap into it.
