We have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind and they are very, very different. While our conscious mind goes about moving towards creating success or reaching for goals, our subconscious mind can have a totally different agenda.
The subconscious mind is the source of all sabotage and the reason we can fail to get the results we want. Let’s take the goal of earning $10,000 a month. This seems to be the first milestone budding entrepreneurs choose to go after. Now consciously, you might see no reason that’s not possible for you. After all, others less talented than yourself have made it to that level.
But that hardly matters to your subconscious mind who will only deliver to you what has already been programmed in from past experiences. The subconscious mind is the source of all sabotage and the reason we can fail to get the results we want. It is wise to make it your friend and understand how it works.
So as time goes on, even though you are making all the right moves, and being positive and focused the goal of $10,000 a month is still not even close to becoming a reality.
So what’s going on?
What’s going on is your subconscious mind holds a different view of your ability or perhaps your deserve-ability to earn that amount of money and the reasons for this vary widely from person to person. And if that is the case, no amount of positive thinking or hard work will break through where ever that Upper Limit is set.
But the good news is there are as many ways to shift this Upper Limit as there are reasons for where it is set.
Become aware of why you have set an Upper Limit for yourself. It could be as simple as not ‘seeing’ yourself as someone who earns that amount of money. To shift this requires a fairly easy mindset adjustment to instruct your unconscious mind that you are choosing to see yourself as that person now.
It is always a good idea to know exactly where your Upper Limit is set. That can be learned from Self Muscle Testing, a very useful kinesiology tool.
Of course the reasons for where and why an Upper Limit is set could be much deeper and require some fancy digging into your psyche. For this I suggest you work with a professional who is skilled in this area.
Sometimes visualising in the Alpha brainwave for 21 consecutive days works well for this. If you find visualising difficult, remember that there is no right or wrong way to do this. Not everyone sees vivid images. Sometimes only impressions are enough to fire up your unconscious mind to create a new reality for you.
You can either purchase Alpha brainwave CD’s or use the free ones on YouTube. It isn’t necessary to use these props at all if you have experience with meditation and are able to access this state easily.
Being specific with the new amount is also important so that your subconscious mind has something to latch onto.
Tapping is a Cool Tool
Tapping is a process I use with my clients to rewire their subconscious mind to accept that new level of income. Once again, it takes 21 days be really effective but it’s easy to do and highly effective. If you aren’t sure how to do this I suggest working with a professional to get the best and fastest results.
Hypnosis can be another way to rewire the brain to accept larger and larger amounts of money into your bank account. My experience has been that generic ones that focus on abundance or having more money flowing to you have limited effectiveness and the same goes for subliminal tracks. Obviously though, with repetition some do find success with these type of products but to be really effective, have a CD made specifically for you with the amount you want to reach clearly stated. The mind loves specifics.
Success does not come as easily to everyone as the books and programs would have us believe. And often reaching our goals requires much trial and error. Some goals are much easier to reach than others, but those that are connected to our self identity, which is the case when we are looking at a large income increase require sustained and consistent effort.
If you have a goal or a new level you are passionate about reaching, and you are ready to smash that Upper Limit out of the ballpark, contact me. If we are a fit, that’s great. If not, you’ll come away from our call with some great ideas about how to proceed alone.
