It is said that the human mind operates in two levels: the conscious and subconscious level. We all are familiar with the conscious level of our mind, it's the one we use to think, analyze and make decisions everyday. It's also called the left-brain, majority of our life experiences go through this level. The subconscious level of our mind is believed to receive and record everything we say and think consciously but has been forgotten. It's the one that shapes our behaviors and personality.
We use our conscious mind to choose and make distinction; success or failure, good or bad, fight or flight, poor or rich, healthy or unhealthy, and so on. However, our subconscious mind doesn't know how to make such distinction, whatever you decide to think about or dwell on will go into your subconscious mind.
So, whatever you think and act consciously day in and day out will be fed into your subconscious mind and it slowly develops into a personality. That's how your behaviours and personality are formed over the years. If you always feed thoughts of success into your subconscious mind, it will only know how to think success. On the other hand, if you feed thoughts of failure to your subconscious, it will only know how to think failure.
That's why you are always advised to think positively because what you decide to think about will leave an impression on your mind that will effect everything you do day in and day out; month in and month out; year in and year out.
You see it's very easy to teach and develop the power of your subconscious mind; if you want to achieve success, you must always feed positive messages or affirmations to your subconscious. And if you've done that long enough, your subconscious mind will know how to guide and direct your thoughts and actions toward achieving success.
On the other hand, it's also easy to teach your subconscious mind to do otherwise. If you're always complaining how hard your life is; looking for excuses to blame other people why you're not successful; then your subconscious mind will direct you to think and do the things the losers do.
