In part 1 of the key to success in online business I showed you how you have two sometimes conflicting minds operating at the same time. In part 2 I will show you how you get them working in tandem to maximise and turbo charge your approach to anything.
With this new information you will understand that mastering your unconscious mind is not just the key to success in your online business but also any aspect of your life.
So here we go, you've already done the first part which is you have become consciously aware of your unconscious processes. The first step to solving a problem is first acknowledging it exists. You are now aware that the way you feel may be because of some outdated software your unconscious mind is still running and not for any logical helpful reason. Unfortunately we are still trying to put round pegs into square holes and apply a primeval mindset to modern society. 1. Knowledge - The first key to success in online business is recognising what are your logical deductions, your intuition and your gut feeling. Anything that involves risk will automatically make you nervous the first few times you do something. That's because risk means there is a potential of failure and failure in hunter gatherer days was a threat to survival either directly from injury or death or indirectly by a lowered status in the pecking order. The key to success in online business is realising that not all risk is a threat to your survival and is actually the way to develop and grow. Constantly avoiding risk and challenges will lead to a stagnant non fulfilling life. As JK Rowling once said: “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.” So when you get that feeling of fear or anxiousness just know that unless there is real danger then that is what you should be doing. The Greeks believed Gnosis i.e. knowledge led to enlightenment. 2 Resilience - So this first step of understanding will help you with the second step which is persistence. Your unconscious mind is not totally stupid and it can evolve and learn. Once you have experienced a situation that you fear for a few times and you are still alive, your unconscious mind will start to learn that the situation is not as bad as first thought. So the second key to success in online business is get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Actively seek out those situations that challenge you, the overwhelm at first will be uncomfortable and that should serve as a sign your doing it right. 3 See it - The third key to success in online business is positive visualisation and programming your unconscious mind with good thoughts. Your conscious mind responds to direct commands but your unconscious mind responds to suggestion. It is important that your voice in your head is saying the right things. If you want to get your unconscious mind working for you you have to be very specific about what you want. Always state things in the positive and be as detailed and precise as possible. For example if you keep saying to yourself that you hate your job and don't want to do it anymore your unconscious mind can respond by lowering your immune system so you get ill and have to go sick. You got what you were asking for! You must state what you want your life to look like, sound like, feel like, smell like and tastes like. Energy follows thought and you may not realise it but before doing anything there will be a neurological process you go through first which normally involves pictures in your head of you doing it first and then you do it. Every idea that manifested into reality started with a vision. See it in larger than life video with a full IMAX panoramic screen inside your head. Make the focus crystal sharp and the colours vibrant and well contrasted. Any sounds associated should be inside your head in full Dolby surround sound. Smell it, taste it then when the picture is a clear as you can get it, step into it and live it. Do this when you wake up and just before you go to sleep at night. Bring the picture up in your mind like a window on your computer make it big and bright then step into it and start feeling and living it. Then step back and minimise the window again so it runs in the background all day long. If you keep this running and take positive action towards your vision then it is only a matter of time before it manifests itself. Write down exactly what you want your life to look like in 30 days, 90 days, a year etc. Update these on a regular basis as what you want will evolve as you become more aware of the infinite possibilities. So there you have it, some very simple tools to get you heading towards your goal. The company I joined are very big on these techniques, in fact mindset comes before everything else. The belief is your business has to be built right on a firm foundation or you will self sabotage and it will come tumbling down like a house of cards.
