Your Subconscious Mind Power
We all have mind power at a subconscious level. It can be
seen in something as simple as automatically smiling when you
meet a person, and so improving the odds of getting what you
want from that person. It can be the productive way you unconsciously
approach a situation. It is the power that comes from good programming
of your mind.
How do you program your mind for better subconscious mind
power? You do it consciously, one step at a time. You learn a
new technique or "program," then you use it consciously
until it becomes automatic - an unconscious habit. Two examples
Talk to people at the same speed as their speech, and they
usually feel more at ease with you. Mirror their expressions
and how they sit or stand, and they will also feel more comfortable
with you. Salesmen use dozens of simple techniques like these
to develop rapport with customers, but they work in all areas
of life - not just when selling a product.
Of course, it is difficult to remember and smoothly use ten
of these techniques when you meet someone. To make the process
easy, you need to train yourself in a technique or two at a time,
until they become automatic. Then you start working on the next
technique. Soon you'll be subconsciously developing good rapport
with everyone you meet. This is subconscious mind power.
Einstein had many useful intuitive hunches. Gary Kasparov
beats the best chess computers even though the computers can
calculate the possible positions many moves further ahead. His
experience allows Kasparov to combine analysis with a "sense"
of which move is best - a great example of the power of intuition.
Skill, knowledge and experience determine the potential effectiveness
of intuition. In other words, a weak chess player will never
intuitively beat that computer. Having enough good information
in your mind, then, is the first important step towards better
You also have to encourage your intuitive mind power. You
can start by watching for it. During problem solving, note any
feelings or hunches you have. Notice when your hunches are useful
and when they seem to be just random feelings. Continue this
until the whole process becomes a habit, and you'll begin to
have more intuition.
Subconscious Mind Power - The Key
From these examples, you can see how you can benefit from
"programming" your mind. Just training yourself to
regularly ask a simple question, like "What is the best
use of my time right now?" can be very powerful. The key?
Find any technique that works when used consciously, then use
it daily (carry a reminder if you have to) until it becomes a
habit. That's how to develop a more powerful mind.
