3 Steps to Access Your Full Potential
Steps to Access Your Full Potential
The unconscious mind is an absolute powerhouse harbouring 97% of our brain power. It literally dwarfs our conscious mind. But, to access our full potential, the two must communicate and be on the same page. They’re like farmers (3% aware) and ox (97% unconscious). The farmer has many ideas about ploughing his field but has no real power. He needs to rely on the energy & strength in the ox.
Our unconscious can’t speak to us like the conscious mind can. It ‘speaks’ through feeling. So the 1st critical step 1 in harnessing the power of our full potential is to feel our emotions. When our unconscious is not aligned, we feel frustrated, tense, tight, heavy, hooked etc. It’s letting us know that 97% is not liking where the 3% is heading.
Step 2 is to own & acknowledge what our feelings are telling us. In today’s positive thinking world, being open to and owning ALL of our senses is counterintuitive. The challenge for the majority is we’re brought up to think well, and to have a firm reliance on our self-talk. We often ignore our unconscious, seeking instead to push past the feelings that are trying to hold us back. Positive thinking works for a while but eventually limits us.
Once we have owned our feelings, we can go to Step 3 – Make a change in our life & then loop back to Step 1.
And, in doing so, we can access our full potential.
