Hey, this is Leo for Actualized.org. In this quick self-help segment,
we are going to cover the subconscious mind.
We're going to talk about what the subconscious mind is,
how it influences your life and the results that you're getting in your life and your success
and fulfilment in life. We're also going to talk about how you can start to work
with your subconscious mind to get it on board to get you the results that you want.
I'm only going to have about 10 to 15 minutes to cover this topic,
but the subconscious mind is an extremely deep topic that I'm fascinated by.
It's also crucial for the results that you are or are not getting in your life.
If you're frustrated with things like losing weight, starting a business, performing well in your job,
or anywhere else in your life where you're not getting the results that you want,
you have to realize that the most important thing is starting to understand your subconscious mind.
The fact that you're watching this video and you're researching this topic is a good first start.
Let's break into it.
What is the subconscious mind? What you have is your conscious mind
which is what we tend to think of as our mind. It's us. It's who we are
It's everything that we think and feel throughout the day.
It's what we would call "consciousness" or "awareness." That's the conscious mind.
What most people do not understand, unless they've studied this topic and thought about it deeply, is that the subconscious mind is responsible for everything else that is happening in your body
and your life. It's responsible for all the behaviors.
The subconscious mind consists of the things that are below your awareness level a
nd below your awareness threshold that are operating on you. These are the habits that you have. These are the beliefs that you have. This is the self-image that you've cultivated
and what you think about yourself, your capabilities, your limitations, your weaknesses,
and your strengths.
This is also going to include your map and model of reality. It goes deep here.
This is basically your model of reality and what you think is right and wrong.
The stuff that motivates you on a deep level is all subconscious.
We tend to think that that's conscious, but that all sits below the level of awareness
unless you've done a lot of introspection and personal development work.
What tends to happen is that the subconscious is driving a lot of what you do throughout your day.
I would say that 95 percent of the things that you do throughout your day
are done subconsciously or even unconsciously.
When things are happening subconsciously, it means that when you're executing
your morning routine or when you've even having a conversation with a friend,
you're not breaking a lot of the things and behaviors that are happening
there down in your mind and saying, "Okay, I need to pull out the toothbrush,
put the toothpaste on it, stick it in my mouth, scrape it around for five minutes,
then pull it out and rinse."
You're not thinking all of that. That's just happening spontaneously.
In fact, what you're probably thinking about is something totally different
while you're brushing your teeth.
You're probably thinking about the fact that you have a big meeting at work coming up
and you have to prepare for that or maybe the electricity bill is due or you have to work
on your business and there's some problem that you have to tackle.
You're probably thinking about something like that versus the mechanics of brushing your teeth.
