HOW IS YOUR MINDSET GOING?
Have you ever had a really bad day? Have you ever stumbled out of bed the wrong way, stubbed your toe immediately and then discovered the entire day slowly turned to crap? We have all had one, right? Did you end up telling yourself: “I can not wait for this day to end”? Why is this so?
THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
There is much to be learned about the subconscious mind and how these patterns eventually play out in our everyday lives. Many of these patterns form our very own self-belief systems and to the unaware, become quite limiting in our adult lives. This process commences during our earliest of life experiences,(some research suggests even when we are still in our mother’s womb) and during our childhood primarily (at least in the majority of cases) whereby the greatest influencers or architects of our self-belief system are our parents.
“YOU ARE NOT MANAGING WHAT YOU ARE NOT MONITORING.”
A well-known quote in business and leadership training is that “you cannot manage what you are not measuring” or monitoring. Therefore, anyone that allows all of life’s experiences to enter the subconscious mind unfiltered is going to have a hard time realizing their full potential!
60,000 THOUGHTS A DAY!
Scientists suggest we have up to 60,000 thoughts a day of which 96% are unconsciously processed, entering our subconscious minds every moment unfiltered…scary, huh?
WHY DOES ADVERTISING WORK?
Why do the rich get richer? Why do McDonalds Restaurants and all the Icon Brands keep advertising in front of our faces everywhere we go, all the time? Because the more those messages enter your brain unfiltered, the more likely you are to eventually buy their stuff!
SO WHAT IS A MINDSET FOR SUCCESS?
A mindset for success starts to become a reality when you start doing things that successful people do. Now do not think that when I talk about the success I am talking all about money. Although I believe money is important, there are many more (or at least equally) important aspects of our lives we need to be happy and successful in as well, right?
LIVING UP TO YOUR CORE BELIEFS AND STANDARDS
Your own personal philosophy and core beliefs regarding what you determine to be your own personal measure of genuine happiness, fulfillment and success are completely yours to determine. However, that is often the very problem right there… Have you determined what this actually means to you?
WHY DON’T PEOPLE DEFINE WHAT WILL MAKE THEM TRULY HAPPY?
Taking absolute responsibility for your future, your own happiness in life, what your model of what success will look like, and refusing to settle for less are not things“most” people do. Why? Because it takes “WORK”
Just like why there are only a few people in the gym or exercising per capita at 5:30 am each day, it is far easier to sleep in and make excuses like “I’m too tired or too busy to be able to do that”-because getting up at 5.17 am is actually hard work! It is easier to sit on the couch and watch TV or search on Facebook or YouTube for a laugh than it is to invest private time in your own future, right?
