CHAPTER 12 THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND THE CONNECTING LINK
The Eleventh Step toward Riches
Think of the subconscious mind as the storage room of everything that is currently not in your conscious mind.
The subconscious mind stores all of my previous life experiences, my beliefs, my memories, my skills, all situations I've been through and all images I've ever seen.
The best way to understand the subconscious mind is to look at the example of the person who wants to learn how to drive a car. At the beginning he wouldn't be able to hold a conversation with anyone while driving as he would be focusing on the different moves involved. That's because he's still using his conscious mind to drive.
The subconscious mind; your Autopilot!
A few weeks later driving becomes a natural habit that happens automatically without needing to think about it. This happened because the driving habit has been transferred to his subconscious mind and so the conscious mind becomes free.
By programming the subconscious mind with new programs I can fix many problems in my personality. I must make sure that my autopilot is capable of running my system without ruining my life or causing me any problems. The conscious and the subconscious mind can make a great team if I used them together. The first can handle some tasks then assigns them to the second while the second can send feedback and messages about the task in the form of emotions to the first.
To fix those personality issues and to begin receiving feedback in the form of "hunches or inspirations", I craft my perfect Self-Talk according to Ken Klemm's training on "How To CRAFT Your PERFECT Self-Talk." Initially, saying my Self-Talk took 1000-1500 times per day. After about a month it became automatic. Today with enough emotion, I can say my Self-Talk about 500 times per day. The more emotion, the more likely I will receive a favorable feedback message.
I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for this amazing training we have here in Mentoring For Free. It has all the elements required to help us learn how to become good followers so we can become good leaders.
First it's the training for say a month or two. Then the Bootcamp, the Mentoring App and My Mentoring Site. We have Michael's ebook, Success In 10 Steps, as the tool to learn how to communicate in social media. Then with the help of our mentor, we begin learning how to talk to people; how to build relationships with those who have downloaded the ebook.
This is the most ideal way to learn. First, there is some book learning; then we take that book learning and put it into real life practice. This is the best way to learn, I have learned a lot by making a mistakes, but my skills keep getting better and better. I am becoming a better follower; hence a better leader. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy.
I am grateful to those who make up each of our 8 weekly calls. They too are becoming better followers; hence better leaders. By our participation we create good harmonious groups that are excited for each other's successes. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You.

PS: I am grateful to each person who has downloaded Success In 10 Steps and chosen to communicate periodically with me. The two of us form a Mastermind group. It is fun to learn about each one and to share Mentoring For Free with them and be able to help them with their struggles in their company, if they so desire. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. Each one of You are appreciated very much.
