THE HIDDEN POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
I. Understanding the Subconscious Mind
A) The subconscious mind is a sophisticated electronic goal-seeking mechanism that functions much like any manmade computer B) Your subconscious mind does not think or act on its own volition or its own initiative. Itʼs primary purpose is to achieve the goals that have been given to it by your conscious mind. C) Your conscious mind is like the captain of a ship. The captain is in complete control. The members of his crew can only follow orders; they cannot see where the ship is actually going. D) Your conscious mind is that part of your brain that enables you to know, to think, and to act effectively. Your conscious mind uses logic, deduction, and reasoning to reach its conclusions and make its decisions. It is only through your conscious mind that you can contact your subconscious mind. It is to your conscIous mind that your subconscious mind looks for instructions. E) Your subconscious mind is completely impersonal. It is not capable of making moral judgements or determining the difference between right and wrong, good or evil. That is the sole responsibility of your conscious mind. It matters not to your subconscious mind what itʼs goals are. If you program it for success, you will be successful. If you program it for failure, you will fail. F) Once a correct or successful response has been Established in your Subconscious mind that allows it to attain specific goalʼs given to it with your Conscious Mind, that procedure is stored for future use. G) Your subconscious mind repeats this successful response on future trials, no matter what they are. In fact, certain habit patterns are so deeply ingrained in your subconscious mind that the goals given to it by your conscious mind can be easily accomplished in the dark or when your eyes are closed. H) Your subconscious mind never forgets anything. That is why it is so important that you program it with positive success ideas rather than negative failure ones. I) Yesterday is a cancelled check tomorrow is only a promissory note, but that today is cold hard cash.
