4 Powerful Ways To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind to ASPIRE TO GREA

4 Powerful Ways To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind to ASPIRE TO GREATNESS !!!

It’s the evening before your 7-day Caribbean
cruise to Antigua. As you pack your suitcase, you
are filled with anticipation of all the fun and 
adventurous things you and your six friends will
do while cruising on the ship and indulging in 
the sights and activities on the Antiguan Island.

Beep, beep, beep…the alarm reads 5:00 AM. You
jump excitedly out of bed and shower and dress 
within record time. Screeching outside your doors
are the tires of the yellow cab destined to the 
airport. As the driver zips and whizzes through 
traffic, you conference in the group to ensure
everyone is en route to the airport.

Seven hours after the ship sets sail, you and your
friends sense something has gone awry as you 
watch the staff move in a hurried fashion on the
upper and lower decks. On your way to the rest-
room you overhear a crewman saying to another,
“Can you believe the ship is off course? They 
better hurry and reprogram the system so the
ship can get back on course.” Like the ship,
many of you are off course. Why? Because of 
the faulty programming in your subconscious
mind. Before you get offended, we all have 
faulty programming. To get to the place you 
desire to be in life, you must reprogram your 
subconscious mind for success!

“You are like a captain navigating a ship. He 
must give the right orders, and 
likewise, you must give the right orders
(thoughts and images) to your 
subconscious mind which 
controls and governs all your experiences.” ~ Dr. Joseph Murphy

So, what is the subconscious mind?

The subconscious is the part of your mind that is
not immediately accessible by your conscious 
mind; it functions below your normal level of 
waking consciousness. Envision your sub-cons
-cious as a huge filing cabinet that stores files 
such as: every wonderful and traumatic 
experience you have ever had, habits, skills, and
every visual image you have ever seen. In 
contrast, the conscious part of your mind is 
responsible for logic, generating thoughts, being
proactive and deciding which path to take. In 
your conscious mind, all of these functions are 
completely under your control, unlike your sub-
conscious mind. The conscious mind makes 
decisions and gives orders to the subconscious 
mind. Therefore, the subconscious will carry out
the directive based on what is programmed, not
necessarily what you are requesting. Yes…
know, it sounds a bit scary….keep reading.

Your subconscious mind carries out the instruc-
tions of your conscious mind without questioning. 
Within your subconscious lies all your beliefs 
(including limited beliefs) and habits (what you 
do every day). Our beliefs and habits control our
everyday life. Were you aware that 88% of your
mind is comprised of the subconscious, which 
you do not actively control? On a daily basis you
only use 12% of your conscious mind. Therefore,
your subconscious mind is at the helm; it’s 
running the ship–you.

Is your ship on course?

Are you sailing in the right direction?

Is your subconscious mind programmed to help
you achieve success in every area of your life?

How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind

There are several ways to reprogram the sub-cons
-cious mind. We will explore four powerful and 
effective strategies within this article. These 
strategies are affirmationsvisualization
meditation and positive self-talkLimited 
beliefs and negative habits can be reprogrammed
by using affirmations. The subconscious mind 
learns through repetition. An affirmation is
definitive statement asserting
that something exists or is true. Every 
belief and habit you possess was formed through
repetitionand we can implant new ones the 
same way. The first step toward implanting new
beliefs and developing new habits is to know 
exactly what you really want to have, do and be. 
So, let’s explore affirmations!

Strategy 1: Affirmations

Affirmations are an effective way to plant positive
messages into your subconscious. It is one of the
most effective ways to change a limited or 
negative belief. You must be careful of what you
affirm as it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If 
you continuously say “this is never going 
to work,” then it is highly probable that things 
never will.

Repetition of an affirmation changes the neural
pathways in your brain over time to produce the 
new belief. Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, MD, PhD, a 
practicing neuro-psychiatrist and associate 
professor of psychiatry at the University of 
Vermont School of Medicine says, “We can 
rewire the patterns in our brain 
with cognitive behavioral therapy or 
affirmations. Affirmations change the way 
our brains are wired and the brain lights up

Here are some examples of affirmations:

1. I am a genius and use my mind, talents, gifts
and abilities to produce wealth.

2. I am living a life of divine purpose and destiny.

3. I am emotionally, mentally and psychologically

4. I am focused and driven to create the life I 
want and deserve the best in life.

5. I am a money magnet; money flows to me.

Strategy 2: Visualization

Visualization is a technique that involves focus-
ing on positive mental images in 
order to achieve a particular 
goal. It is the ability to vividly imagine something
—to “see” it in the mind’s eye—before it exists in
any physical reality. Steve Jobs had a clear 
mental image of what the iPhone would look like 
and its functions and features before he and his 
team began to design and build it. Visual images 
have a huge impact on your brain, both 
consciously and subconsciously. Consequently, 
visualization is a great way to program/reprogram 
your subconscious mind.

{Note: Visualization does not guarantee success.
It also does not replace hard work and practice. 
But when combined with diligent effort (and, I 
would add, a strong support network), it is a 
powerful way to achieve positive, behavioral 
change and create the life you desire.}

Here’s a powerful example of visualization in motion:

Dr. Lee Pulos, a Sports Psychologist, Olympic 
Team Trainer, and the author of “The Power 
of Visualization,” describes an experiment 
the Soviets did with their 1980 Olympic Team 
and its highly skilled, world-class athletes.The 
athletes were divided into four groups using 
varying degrees of physical and visualization 
exercises. Below is a chart illustrating the 
methods used. ( Click here For further learning
on Power Of  Visualization)

Groups [% of Method Used]
(Physical Practice) {Visualization}
Group A (100%) {0%}
Group B (75%) {25%}
Group C (50%) {50%}
Group D (25%) {75%}

So which team do you think won? At the end of the
Moscow Olympics and the Lake Placid Olympics,
Group D had won the most medals. There are 
countless other examples.

Strategy 3: Meditation

Meditation plays a vital role in reprogramming the
subconscious mind, because it helps to still the 
mind. In this state, your brain becomes more 
receptive; it becomes fertile ground for whatever
you want to “implant” into the mind. Your 
conscious mind engages in the activities of writing
powerful goals, creating a vision state, and develo
-ping affirmations. To have those seeds take root 
and flourish into reality, we have to get those 
words and images soaked deep into our sub-cons
-cious mind. Placing yourself in a meditative state
is an excellent way to help that process. Regular
meditation trains your mind to hold its focus 
without getting distracted. Over time, meditation
helps you to become laser focused.

Strategy 4: Positive Self-Talk

Several years ago, I read a powerful book, titled
"What to Say When You Talk To Yourself,
by Shad Helmstetter about the power of the 
mind and using positive self-talk as a tool to
reprogram the subconscious mind.

On a daily basis, we spend more time talking to
ourselves than any other person. Whether it’s a
verbal tirade, an analytical discussion or the 
incessant chatter that takes place within our 
mind. Our self-talk dictates our mood, behavior
and guides our choices and decisions. Perhaps
the most powerful influence on your attitude and
emotions is what you say to yourself, and believe.
As I always say, “It is not what happens
to you that really matters, but what you say 
to yourself about what happened.” 
Your response to the event or situation is what 
determines your thoughts and feelings and 
ultimately, your actions. By effectively managing
your self-talk, you can begin to live your life on 
a higher level and create the life you truly want 
and deserve.

Your subconscious mind will believe whatever 
you tell it most. Therefore, you must spend time
each day intentionally speaking positive self-talk
to yourself. It is only through repetition that your
subconscious mind will adopt its new 
programming.Then and only then, will you begin
to change the autopilot of your mind to think 
these new thoughts automatically.

So, how can reprogramming your subconscious 
mind help you to ASPIRE TO GREATNESS? 
Well, I am so glad you asked . Here’s the quick 
answer, “EVERYTHING.” Everything begins and
ends in your mind. If you want to LIVE…DO…BE on 
a higher level, you must cultivate a mindset that 
will support that. So, let’s start reprogramming 
our subconscious mind for success!
