How to Activate Your Subconscious Mind to Achieve Any Goal

Here are some ways to start retraining your mind effectively to achieve greatness

People seldom understand the power of the subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is more powerful than the conscious mind. What is the subconscious mind? 

It is that part of our mind that remains dormant, but captures and stores all kinds of information and feelings we are facing; it shapes our behavior, ideology, and personality without our knowledge. 

This ability to influence with or without our approval is exactly what makes it so powerful. 

Power of the subconscious mind

When you learn a new skill your conscious mind is quite alert. After acquiring the skill, it is shifted to your subconscious mind and you apply it automatically to achieve your objectives.  

For instance, when you are learning how to swim, initially you will be more alert due to your conscious mind. Once you master the art of swimming, you transfer the skill to your subconscious mind, and the conscious mind gets busy acquiring other skills. 

The subconscious mind thus acts as a reservoir of learning.

The subconscious mind can be compared to a computer or a memory bank. It takes in everything we hear, see, feel, and experience and stores it. It has been estimated that the subconscious mind receives two billion bits of information per second. 

It controls all of your bodily functions and parts; breathing, the beating of the heart, blinking of the eyes, the immune system, organs, muscles, bones, and tissues. 

The subconscious mind is where you store your emotions, habits, core beliefs, and your permanent memory. 

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” – Earl Nightingale

Your subconscious mind is always ‘on’. You must know how to utilize it to achieve great success. 

Ensure that your subconscious mind captures the right signals because the things that are stored in your subconscious mind will directly affect you in the form of emotions, circumstances, and events. 

In case of any emergency, your subconscious mind instantly recognizes it and immediately brings you to an alert state. 

Sometimes you like or dislike some people based on your past experiences. That means you have either sympathy or antipathy towards them. It is due to your subconscious mind. 

A blueprint for finding solutions to your problems

When you are confronted with any problem, feed the problem to your subconscious mind before you go to bed. You will get the solution the next day morning.  Additionally, you can solve your problems creatively with the help of your conscious and subconscious minds. 

Here is a blueprint to find solutions to your problems:

Outline your problem―be clear about what is the real problem. If you are burdened by exam stress, then what is the real problem? You are not getting enough time to study? Or you cannot grasp the concepts as easily as others do? These are two different issues. 

Gather information from all sources―think of how you have treated your academics throughout the year. What is the difference between your study habits and that of your classmates? Now that there is a problem, what is the best way to deal with it and get the best outcomes?

Work on it with your conscious mind to get solutions―should you do a selective study with a well-informed idea of the expected questions? Would it help if someone reads out the subjects to you even when you are doing something else? Would discussing the subjects with friends help? When you do not get clear solutions, break the problem into pieces and give commands to your subconscious mind. Sleep over it for some time, and your subconscious mind will come out with some solutions. Choose the best one with the help of your conscious mind. This is an ideal way to find solutions to your problems in life. 

Blend your conscious and subconscious mind effectively

Your conscious mind does one task at a time while your subconscious mind does multiple tasks at a time. The conscious mind sees with the eyes while the subconscious mind is blind. 

The conscious mind is the ‘thinking’ mind and the subconscious mind is the ‘feeling’ mind. The subconscious mind works at the behest of the conscious mind. 

The conscious mind programs the subconscious mind but the latter is more powerful than the former. 

There are times when you know what you need to do, but you are not getting a good feeling about it. That is something your subconscious mind is doing. Don’t ignore it. Try to get to the route of the issue that is causing you discomfort. 

Usually, there is one. Convince yourself before moving ahead with the task so that you don’t suffer later.

Your conscious mind emphasizes excellence while your subconscious mind strives for perfection. Your conscious mind has the will while your subconscious mind has the power. When you blend your conscious and subconscious minds, you have the willpower

It is said, one must not give out impulsive reactions to things. Impulsive reactions result from the conscious mind, which reacts with whatever is visible. 

For example, when someone tells you that your performance in a program has not been good enough, your first reaction would be either sulking or protesting. But when you stop and mull over it, you give a chance to your subconscious mind to take over. 

That is when the criticism will sound like feedback and you will be able to see the loopholes which may have left the audience dissatisfied. 

Those will also help you identify the areas of improvement for you.

Your conscious mind is a leader and your subconscious mind is a follower. For successful leadership, there must be effective coordination between the leader and the follower. 

Similarly, for the successful functioning of your mind, both the conscious and subconscious mind must work collaboratively.

You can silence your inner critic and build a great deal of confidence by strengthening your subconscious mind.  Blend your conscious and subconscious minds successfully. Modify your subconscious mind the way you want to become with the help of the conscious mind. 

Make your subconscious mind a friend, not a foe. Make use of this mysterious subconscious mind to achieve greater success.

The human mind is a wonderful device

The human mind can be compared with an iceberg where you see the conscious mind on the surface while the largest and the most powerful part, the subconscious mind, remains below the surface.

You can control your mind by feeding it with positive thoughts.  If you feed positive thoughts to your subconscious mind, you get positive results. If you strengthen your subconscious mind, you can ensure sound health, peace, and prosperity. 

Follow the blueprint to attain and accomplish your goals. 

It is a common fact that people do not use their full mental power. They do not give enough chance to the subconscious mind. 

Imagine if everyone used 100 percent of their mental power, the outcome would be astounding! We would live in a world full of peace, prosperity, and happiness.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
