Three Levels of the Mind
Conscious, subconscious, and unconscious are three levels of the mind. The conscious deals with what I am aware of at the present. For instance I am writing on my laptop in my office at home words for this blog. I am conscious of my fingers moving and words appearing on the screen. I am also conscious of the rain that I hear outside of my window, the television in the other room that my wife is watching and the hum of the fan behind me. Therefore, there are two areas of the conscious the focal and the marginal.
The focal is that which I am concentrating on and the marginal are the external things that are happening on the outside.
The subsconsious are memories stored. For instance things that happened earlier today, yesterday, or even this month. We can recall these events to the conscious at will.
The subsconscious has more affect on us than we realize. That is why at times we have such a hard time moving forward with the positive because so many negative thoughts have been stored into the subsconscious.
Next we come to the unconcscious. It is a storehouse for all past experiences that cannot be recalled at will. Experiences in the past may have made impressions on our minds. It has been proven that even experiences in early childhood can be recalled through hypnosis. Perhaps you have noticed in working on a problem without any solution coming to mind will suddenly appear after a good nights sleep.
This is only a tiny explanation of the three levels of the mind but I used these to talk about success. We strive to succeed in most of the things that we do. Maybe you have taken on a new business and struggle to succeed. Somewhere in the deep trenches of your mind there may be something that is blocking your success. Maybe it is a negative word or words that someone has spoken to you in the past that told you that it was impossible.
Somehow it got stored in your mind and may be the root problem of you succeeding.
For that reason it is so important to focus on positive thoughts and reject negatives. Negative thoughts and words are crippling and can hinder ones growth to the maximum.
If you want to be successful surround your self with successful people. Focus on the positive statements that successful people make. If you find your self talking negative then make an effort to stop immediately and shift your thinking and talking over to the positive. You will find that life will change suddenly and before you know it you will be on the road to success.
