Have you ever set a new resolution, only to see it fall by the wayside soon after? You start out with great intentions about a specific change you need to make. You use will power and feel excited about finally moving in the right direction, but then suffer a gradual and painful return to your old habits. If you’ve experienced this frustration, you may benefit from making a change in your thought patterns.
Your subconscious beliefs and values powerfully influence your decisions. How can you get in there and tinker with your thoughts so that you can create the results you desire and produce sustainable success?
Taming the Subconscious Mind
Vince Poscente describes the difference between the conscious and subconscious mind with an analogy in his book, The Ant and the Elephant. Poscente teaches that the conscious (ant) mind in one second of thinking stimulates 2,000 neurons, while the subconscious (elephant) mind in a second of imagining stimulates four billion neurons. That’s 4,000,000,000 neurons to 2,000 neurons; literally two million times more neurons are stimulated in the subconscious than the conscious mind in a second of mental activity. The key to changing your thinking patterns is to align your conscious, deliberate thoughts with your subconscious patterns to create congruency with the different areas of the brain.
In his book, The Path of Least Resistance, Robert Fritz teaches that it is the structure of thought that determines behavior. When we focus on outcomes we want, we will naturally build habits to move in that direction. More than fifteen years of research has revealed five insights to a method that works as a formula for success. The words trigger the pictures that stimulate your subconscious and lead you to your vision:
Many prosperous people have shared their own personal method of making changes in their thought patterns; some enjoy quiet time, others meditate, and still others claim that writing down their goals is the secret to their success. Pay attention to which method allows you to make your habit changes effortless over time. You may need to use a lot of willpower in the beginning, but the key is to align your conscious, deliberate thoughts with your subconscious patterns to create congruency with the different areas of the brain. Once this is achieved, all your new habits are carried out effortlessly.
