The Power of the Subconscious Mind
Our mind is extraordinary powerful. Your thoughts control and determine almost everything that happens to you. They can raise or lower your heart rate, and prove or interfere with your digestion, change the chemical composition of your blood, and help you to sleep or keep you awake at night. Your thoughts can make you happy or sad, sometimes in an instant. They can make you feel alert and aware, or distracted and depressed. They can make you popular or unpopular, confident or insecure, positive or negative. Our thoughts can make us feel powerful or powerless, a hero or coward. In our material lives, our thoughts can make us a success or a failure, prosperous or poverty-stricken, respected or ignored. Our thoughts, and the actions that they trigger, determine our whole life. And the best news of all is that they are completely under our own control.
We are a complex bundle of thoughts, feelings, attitudes, desires, images, opinions, and ambitions, each of them constantly changing, sometimes from second to second. Each of these elements of your personality affects the others, sometimes in an unpredictable way. Our entire life is the result of the intertwining and interconnection of these factors. Our thoughts trigger images and pictures, and the emotions that go with them. These images and emotions trigger attitudes and actions. Our actions then have consequences and results that determine what happens to us. If we think about success and confidence, we will feel strong and confident, and we will perform better at whatever we attempt. If we think about making mistakes or being embarrassed, we will perform poorly, no matter how good we are. Pictures and images, from our imagination or from the external influences produce ideas, emotions and attitudes that correspond to them. The thought of a person or situation can cause us to instantly feel happy or sad, elated or angry, love or hate. You control your life!
