The Secret to Success

Could this be THE secret to success?

Today, in the modern world, most people are struggling with their purpose, projects and goals. Chances are you are also one of those people who is striving for something great but despite your efforts it still is not happening. Of course, we don't always fail  in life.  I am sure you have also had some successes.  But what I am talking about here is the permanent kind of success that pervades everything.  I am talking about the success you feel confident that you can manifest, without ever needing to struggle for it.  The kind of success that leaves you saying  "Yes, I really made it this time".

The Key to Successful Living

Most people I know are angry inside. They are stressed without even realizing or admitting it. Why? Because they do not understand the reasons why (or they do not want to understand). But the reason is that their life is not moving forward towards their destination, towards their highest fulfillment. 

So, just  what is this key to successful living?  It is your own ability to control what is happening inside your own mind. Either you control your mind or your mind controls you. Chances are, for you, it is the latter. And we're not talking about 100% control here. It's not that you  control your mind or your mind controls you 100%.  But one of the two will have 51% of your attention. 

You or Your Mind?

So which one is it going to be : you or your mind?  Now that's a weird question -- almost as though our mind and us were two separate things!  But in actual fact, they are two separate things : the Conscious and the Subconscious.  "We" are the conscious and the subconscious is an entity of its own. 

This is actually not good news.  When we were kids, the subconscious mind often took control to save us in difficult situations, as adults it is up to us to take the control back. Think of it like a business or an inheritance : imagine that when you were young, a kind relative took control of your inheritance to protect you because you could not handle money or business at 5 years of age. But then, over time, this relative became the "owner".  You need to ask for your inheritance back now! But why?, you may ask. Why can't we leave the inheritance in our uncle's hands?  If he took care of it then we could just go about our life.  

Success or Survival

In reality, the subconscious mind is not very advanced. Its main function is to store information to protect us and to ensure our survival. Do you get the point?  We are talking about SUCCESS here - not SURVIVAL.

If you merely want to survive while you are here on this earth, then by all means, do nothing. Your subconscious mind kept you alive this far, didn't it? Yes it did -- more or less. Your relative will do notthing to fulfill your dreams; this is your OWN BUSINESS.  That's why you need to take control of your subconscious mind.

The Subconscious Brain

Another reason is that the subconscious brain is purely mechanical. It is connected with the survival instinct.  But it also records everything that happens to you and cannot differentiate between what is fake and what is real. It is very primitive. Your subconscious mind may very well have recorded all the times people told you that you're not good enough, that life is hard, money doesn't grow on trees, or told you not to fantasize too much, to keep your feet on the ground, to be a good boy or girl etc. etc.  All these memories, disguised as a survival mechanism, will jump on you the minute you try to do something new and creative, or try to break out of the mold of your mediocrity ; the minute you decide to change and try to open your wings and fly. This part of your mind will stop you!  Because for the subconscious mind, anything new is dangerous, by definition.

 

Final Thoughts

So - who do you want to be?  Ask yourself this question and get to know your enemy as well as you can.  Yes,  it may have protected you when you were 5 years old.  But do you want to stay 5 years old for the rest of your life? I'll let you answer this question for yourself.  And I leave you with the SECRET to success.
