Not understanding how to properly use your mind has resulted in more unfulfilled lives than just about anything else. Likewise understanding how to use your mind has resulted in more successful lives than anything else. Mindset is everything. Your mind is your most powerful gift and your greatest asset. That is if you know how to use it.
There are two parts to our mind the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious is the part of the mind that we are aware of and that we have immediate control and access of. This doesn’t make the subconscious mind any less a part of us just because we do not have complete access to it. They both make up who we are and our destiny.
The Proper Use Of The Conscious Mind
Unfortunately most people completely confuse how they are supposed to use their mind. They use their conscious for subconscious purposes and fail to utilize their subconscious minds properly if at all. They wear themselves out yet get nowhere. Like a hamster spinning around in a cage. No matter how much energy the hamster puts out it isn’t going to do anything. That is how most people use their conscious mind.
They use their conscious mind to solve complex deep problems instead of giving it over to the subconscious mind. They run their limited conscious around at a higher and higher rate that does nothing but burn themselves out and fail to answer their problems. The purpose of the conscious mind is to identify problems, gather information, and solve familiar or simple problems. You don’t need to turn over “What’s two plus two” or “How do I bang hot women?“.
The Proper Use Of The Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind is used to solve questions and problems that you don’t already have the answer too or that are deep and of a complex nature. If you mulling over a problem and the answer doesn’t spring up nearly instantaneously or after a bit of thought it is time to hand it over to the subconscious mind and let it do it’s job. Otherwise you are just going to wear yourself out. Make use of your subconscious mind that is what it is there for.
It was made to solve your problems for you so that you can focus on gathering information and taking action. Your conscious mind isn’t that good at solving complex issues and there is no point in running yourself against a wall when you have a bulldozer behind you just waiting for your orders to take it down. Of course your subconscious mind is much more powerful than any bulldozer but you get the point.
Get Out Of Your Own Way
When your conscious mind tries to do the job of your subconscious mind you are going to be fighting your whole life to no avail. Likewise when you make proper use of your subconscious mind for the problem solving master that it is you will live a much happier and good life. Your conscious mind is for gathering information, taking action, and identifying problems to hand over to the subconscious mind. The job of your subconscious mind is to then solve those problems no matter how seemingly impossible or intense.
You have to learn to get out of your own way. Your conscious mind have limited problem solving abilities unless it is a problem familiar to you or an extremely simple one. The subconscious mind on the other hand can solve things that would baffle a collection of the greatest conscious minds of all time. We were given a conscious and subconscious mind for a reason. One to take action and direct the other to solve problems and assimilate all we take in. Use your mind in the right way and you’ll live up to your full potential.
