Although I totally agree that by thinking positive thoughts, we can start to change the way we see and behave in the world, the fact remains that we usually think on an average of about 60,000 thoughts a day that can cloud our thinking. The thoughts that dominate our minds are usually thoughts that we have preprogrammed in our mind and use to function with over 95% accuracy.
So think about it, if we start to consciously think positive thoughts, one, maybe two a day or even a thousand, how can those thoughts compete with the other 50,000 plus thoughts that you think about. Granted, that half of those thoughts may be positive, but the other half may be negative and limiting thoughts.
So, then it is true that in order to form new sustainable effective positive thoughts, we have to make it a practice of purposely planting new thoughts in our sub-conscious mind, where the fertile soil awaits. Our subconscious mind awaits for the new thoughts and the more belief and energy you give them, the more they will take root in your mind. Just like a garden, the soil doesn't care what you plant in it, it just goes to work on giving it life. It is the law of life, what so ever you sow, you shall reap.
These are 3 strategies that I use for your new thoughts to take root in my subconscious mind in order to create the life I want that you can easily use also.
1. Meditate- I like to meditate as often as I can. In meditation, you can get in tune with the calmness inside of you and release some of the negative and limiting thoughts that prevent us from having clarity. I also use it to replace old thoughts with new powerful thoughts. This takes practice and dedication. I usually like to meditate before I go to sleep becasue your subconscious mind is still working even while you sleep. If you don't know how, there are many guided meditation videos on youtube you can start using immediately. There are also numerous books in your library that will teach you how to meditate.
2. Read- I find that when I read books that interest me, it gives me new perspectives on things that I may have been seeing in a negative way. For instance, I wanted to change my financial situation from having a limited income to an abundant one, I chose books on that subject and went to work on taking notes and learning about the system of acquiring abundance. It actually added new thoughts to my sub-conscious about the possibility of being prosperous. Thoughts I never had before.
3. Model People Who Think Differently- I actively watch and read about successful people because I know that if they have done it, so can I. I learn from their philosophies and methods. Remember that if you surround yourself with negative and pessimistic people, you will find yourself feeling and thinking the same way and in turn, you are adding more negative stuff to your sub-conscious. On the contrary, if the people you are learning from are confident, optimistic, and think positively, chances are that you too will be filling your sub-conscious mind with the same mindset.
I wish you all success always! I will be publishing an eBook on this topic with more tips and strategies soon. With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
With lots of Love,
