|the conscious mind is just the tip of the iceberg|
I remember that I once read a post on Joe Vitale’s blog (he’s one of the stars of the movie The Secret). Basically, he tells that when you have a goal that you’re going to do something, but then you don’t do it deliberately, guess what’s happening.
What’s happening is that you are “training” your subconscious mind not to trust yourself.
I absolutely agree with that.
If you want to attract money, wealth, abundance, etc what really matters is not your conscious mind, but your subconscious mind instead. Your conscious mind is just the tip of the iceberg.
When you say you’re going to do small things like “I’m going to wash my car tomorrow morning”, and you actually do that the next morning, you are actually training your subconscious mind to believe or trust in yourself.
Therefore, if you have bigger goals, your subconscious mind will trust you because you already train it for smaller goals.
Another case that I think is almost the same is that when you blame other people about your own failure.
You can blame the government, the economy, your colleague, or others for your current condition. It can also mean that you are training your subconscious mind to avoid being responsible for your own success.
Talking about blaming others, I remember these words of wisdom…
“If you blame others for your failures, do you credit them with your success?” - Anonymous
I think the above quote is right.
For example, people like to blame the government for their bad financial condition or things that just won’t seem to improve. But if they experience success, will they say that it’s because of the government? I don’t think so.
So the conclusion is, training our subconscious mind for success should be started by completing smaller goals.
