Ways To Train Your Subconscious Mind So You Can Achieve Anything You Desire

The purpose of your brain is to reinforce and govern your life. Your brain is programmed to succeed! A homeostatic impulse governs activities such as body temperature, heartbeat, and breathing in your subconscious mind.


"Your homeostatic impulse maintains a balance among the hundreds of chemicals in your billions of cells through your autonomic nervous system so that your entire physical machine functions in total harmony most of the time," Brian Tracy explained.


However, many individuals are unaware that your brain is built to regulate both your physical and mental selves. Your mind is constantly sorting and bringing to your attention information and stimuli that confirm your preexisting beliefs (a phenomena known in psychology as confirmation bias), as well as recurring thoughts and impulses that copy and mirror what you've done in the past.


Your subconscious mind is the guardian of your comfort zone.


It's also where you can either train yourself to expect, and persistently pursue, your life's greatest success, happiness, wholeness, or healing.


1. Be willing to accept the unchangeable.


The first step toward making a significant change in your life is to be willing to test the waters to see whether it is doable.


You won't be able to go from being a complete skeptic to a firm believer in the blink of an eye. The second step is to simply be curious about what might be possible. Send a few "frightening emails" to clients or partners in which you propose something to them that they have no need to respond to. Even if you have a few dozen unanswered messages, someone will respond at some point.


The point is that you're willing to try things out to see if they work... That is the event that will change your life.


2. Give yourself the chance to succeed.


Rather than telling yourself that you'll be happy until you've lost 10 pounds, earned a promotion, and experienced two life events, focus on changing your inner monologue to: "I allow my life to be excellent."


Allow yourself to be successful and joyful without feeling guilty. You will not achieve what is required to live the life you wish if you have an amoral or corrupt subconscious link with achievement. Allow yourself to live a complete, happy, healthy, grounded, and purposeful life instead.


3. Don't let other people's worries make you doubt yourself.


People's reactions to hearing of your achievement reflect a lot about how they are doing in their lives.


If you announce your engagement, people in happy marriages will be pleased. People who have been in unhappy marriages will tell you that it is difficult and that you should enjoy your time as "single" people while you still have it.


Other people's fears, the reasoning goes, are reflections of their own circumstances. They have no bearing on who you are or are not.


4. You should be surrounded by positive encouragement.


A bottle of champagne should be kept in the refrigerator. Change the morning alarm on your phone to "CONGRATULATIONS!!!" Make sure the things you see and touch on a regular basis bring you joy and hope. Next to your computer, keep a post-it note with an uplifting remark. Unfollow those who make you feel bad about yourself and instead follow those that provide you supportive comments and interesting ideas on a regular basis. Make your newsfeed a place that may help you improve instead of hurting your self-esteem.


5. Present your achievement as a current reality rather than a distant goal.


Though you should avoid saying things like "I drive a convertible" or "I am a CEO" if they aren't true, you should begin talking about what you want out of life now, rather than in the future.


Instead of stating, "One day, I want to do that," say, "Right now, I am planning how to do it." Instead of thinking, "I'll be happy when I'm in a different point in my life," I tell myself, "I am completely capable of being happy right now, and nothing is stopping me."


6. Set up a visioning area.


It is critical to be able to imagine what you want out of life in order to create it, since if you don't know where you're going, you won't know which direction to go first.


Once you have a crystal clear image in your head of what you want and how you want to live, you can begin to enact and construct what you want and how you want to live. You won't be able to take real, meaningful action toward anything if you're still unclear or torn about what you want.


Whether you use a Pinterest board, blog, journal, or board, put together phrases and photographs that signify what you desire and how you want to live.


7. Identify the source of your apprehension.


It's because we have a conflicting belief about something we're enthusiastic about that our subconscious beliefs prohibit us from pursuing it.


Ask yourself these probing questions to find your resistance. Ask yourself why you feel better when you procrastinate, or why obtaining what you truly desire could make you feel more vulnerable than ever. Determine how to meet those requirements before you begin.


8. Make a plan for your future.


Forget about five- or even ten-year plans; so much changes over time that setting goals you can stick to is nearly impossible. New or even better opportunities will almost surely present themselves, and while your life may not turn out the way you imagined, you will be better off as a consequence.


Instead, make a master plan. Find out what your underlying drives and values are. Consider your ultimate goal for what you want to accomplish while you are still alive, as well as the type of legacy you want to leave. You'll be able to make long-term decisions that are consistent with your true self once you've identified your Big Picture principles.


9. Start keeping a gratitude journal.


Starting a gratitude practice is the most effective way to shift your mindset from "wanting" to "having." By expressing thankfulness for what you do have, you may shift your mindset from one of desire for change to one of contentment with where you are now. Appreciation draws abundance like nothing else. Once you believe you have enough, there's an old adage that you open yourself up to receive more and more and more. That is, without a doubt, correct.

10. During your "dead air" time, use affirmation and inspiration.


During your morning commute, listen to a motivational speech or podcast. Listen to a conversation program about the type of business you're attempting to create while doing the dishes or driving. Incorporate as much affirmation and inspiration as possible into your life. You may need to hear the lessons more than once, but they will eventually sink into your mind, and you will find yourself acting on advice from those who have already achieved their goals.
