What the 1980s Taught Us about the Power Of Mind
The power of the human mind is undisputed; it goes back to the teachings of Aristotle, and is one of the fundamental images of humanity ? the person with the plan solving the problem, getting play in myths from Theseus to Batman. The power of mind is also a power you can harness to create the life you want.
Have you heard about the Law of Attraction? In the last five years it has been a popular topic that has transformed the live of several people around the world. The goal behind it is to help you understand that we can all manipulate our minds into creating reality by using the power of mind. In fact, some people have even blamed their subconscious mind on negative actions hoping it would lighten their sentences in a court room.
In scientific studies, this is sometimes called the observer effect, or the Placebo Effect. More plausibly, it’s that keeping a good mental attitude and a solid set of goals in mind keeps you mentally prepared to take advantage of opportunities you’d've overlooked before. Opportunism is one of the great defining characteristics of successful people ? though this is also the reason why hypochondriacs get sick more often as well. What you believe will alter how you interact with the world, and how you see your own ‘personal karma’. Your own mind power is awesome!
It’s amazing to see how those who only got a placebo are able to cure their ailment. Then of course there are others who believe hear about the side effects, take the placebo and somehow end up with even the rarest of kinds. It’s just one of the many ways we can prove how powerful the subconscious mind can alter your life.
What you will find is that it all revolves around quantum physics. This teaches us that you can create energy around you for anything. Even if we take it a little further, the way it works is your mind creates reality. So if you believe you’re going to get in a car accident, and you keep telling yourself you will, then it’s going to happen. However, we want you to train your mind to work towards the positive things in life.
Unfortunately it’s not as simple as it seems. Take for instance the person who wants to lose weight. You spend 24 hours a day fighting off those thoughts in your head that say, ‘Well if I only have one it will be okay.’ Eventually one of them hits home and you find yourself off your diet. It’s definitely not a fun situation, but with the proper training you can overcome these obstacles.
You’ve probably already experienced this a time or two without even realizing it. Maybe you were cutting out coupons and that inner voice told you if you don’t stop you’ll end up cutting your hand. Then of course you didn’t listen to this nonsense and all of the sudden you stick your other hand with the scissors. Granted, it may not have happened exactly like this, but you get the idea.
Once you get the smaller projects complete, then it will be time to move onto bigger and better things. What’s the first thing that comes to mind for you? It might be different, but most people dream of having a nice house. It’s definitely in the top 3 major decisions you’ll have at least once in your life. The only question is; how are you going to go about getting it? The affirmation that unleashes the power in the subconscious mind will put everything in motion. Well, as long as it’s a positive thought process.
Some people are aware of the power of their mind; they focus on tasks, they set goals, they make lists, and they follow through them. You can see them ? they’re the ones who always seem to have a plan and who always focus on what’s around them. Everything they do is aimed at furthering that goal, and with their mind and will ruling their passions, they have a palpable air of success. This success isn’t difficult to emulate ? it’s very simple. It just requires clarity of purpose and focus.
Touching back on the slogan of the United Negro College Fund, imagine the opportunities that can open to you if you spend the time to get a proper education. You want to get the degree that will open doors for you. You take the time to get into your employer’s tuition reimbursement program and you work on your class work. You focus on walking down that aisle with a degree in hand. Everything becomes secondary to getting that education and opening those doors to future prosperity. This is an example of the Law of Attraction in action.
There are several different ways to take advantage of the subconscious mind. Society sees this everyday and doesn’t even realize it. Have you ever heard a commercial that tells you the telephone number like 15 times? The next time you hear that commercial you already know the number right? Now you think about all the benefits of their product, if you let it into your subconscious mind.
It’s up to you to make your life. You can either sit passively by and let life happen to you, or you can grab it and direct it using the power of your mind. Work on small goals and build up to larger ones the same way small rocks can lead to a sturdy platform to see the world from. Don’t let anyone or anything stand in the way of the power of your mind with the Law of Attraction.
