Every decision you make is a battle between your conscious and subconscious mind, and typically your subconscious mind easily wins because your subconscious mind is five to seven times stronger that your conscious mind.
A perfect personal example is MILK PRODUCTS, specifically ICE CREAM. Like mot people I love ice cream, but I’m a little lactose intolerant, it doesn't help in losing weight, it causes mucus and dark circles under my eyes, oh, and in the past it has not helped my acne at all.
However, regardless of all that, I still eat it and more importantly once I have it I continue to crave it. And that’s when it usually starts to work against me...really against me.
I can say, “I really shouldn't eat this while I am enjoying a Milkshake...” What’s wrong with this picture?
My subconscious mind is a hell of a lot stronger.
The same can be said for any task or skill set that you know you have that you want to do more of, but can’t.
- Losing Weight
- Quitting Smoking
- Sales calls
I bring this up because Ron Fender, my personal Clinical Hypnotherapist, is restarting his practice. He and I were prepping a talk that I had to do on the Theory of Mind, and the headline was part of this talk. As much as I was bitching about the good and bad of my current situation I realized that I was acting out and living in perfect alignment with all my unconcious beliefs demonstrating PERFECT SUCCESS of my current subconscious script.
Brilliant! I suddenly had no excuses except my own subconscious programming. Mind you, there are some great things happening with the company - projects, clients, etc. - and yet I realized that my bottlenecks are self-imposed and that I have solved much bigger problems in the past.
So currently I am
- Making a list of past positive performances
- Identifying the bottleneck
- Creating time to do the MOST PRODUCTIVE tasks
- Creating time to do the most rewarding tasks
- Rewarding myself for doing those tasks
While this subject deserves a lot more attention, I do have important tasks to accomplish. If you are currently bitching about your situation, I challenge you to take a moment and think about how long this has been going on - months? years?, decades?
Take a moment to figure out those KEY THINGS / TASKS that you absolutely should be doing but for some reason are not doing. Then stop the excuses that are holding you back and GET TO WORK!
