Self Motivation With Your Other-Than-Conscious Mind

"It is as if evolution has built a safety device in our nervous system that allows us to experience full happiness only when we are living at 100% - when we are fully using the physical and mental equipment we have been given." ~Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, persuasively. . . are you functioning at 100% of your capacity? We're born to learn, thrive, live and search for happiness, meaning and fulfillment, and yet many find these things to be out of reach. Why is it that some people struggle with their finances, their love relationships, their weight, and a general lack of motivation, while others seem to live up to their full potential with ease?

We're living in accelerated times with technology advancing faster than we can keep up with it. As a result of all the external stimulation, I believe we have a disconnect with our other-than-conscious selves. Once we repair that disconnection, amazing, miraculous things can happen.

If we consider our subconscious mind a friend, and communicate with it directly, succinctly and, in a way, strictly, we can move mountains.

The gentle giant is a power capable of being harnessed to aid us in our pursuit of fulfillment. They've been with us since the minute we were born and since then, they've been learning by observing what it is we hear and do.

Everything that goes on around us is being filtered into this other-than-conscious.

As children we were conditioned whether that be through rewards, punishments, through school and experiences. Our other-than-conscious learned too--it learned to expect certain ways of being, creating metaphorical maps of what we could expect out of life based on this early conditioning.

Of its many roles, the subconscious is a powerful persuader--self-persuader--and when you understand this, you are naturally able to engage its help.

The main function of the other-than-conscious is to keep us alive. Another is to keep us doing exactly what we've always been doing. This is, at times, problematic, especially when you're trying to make big changes in your life.

It's possible that your other-than-conscious has been sabotaged by negative conditioning. It runs on a 'I can't do that' program. This part of the brain is responsible for turning something into a habit by helping you know something on 'auto pilot' instead of having to 'remember' it. This works both positively and negatively for us.

As we reframe the power of our other-than-conscious as a partner instead of something we hardly ever consider or communicate with, it can really make an enormous difference in our lives.

So the big question is: how do we befriend this gentle giant? Well. . . how do you make any other friend? You gain rapport with them. It's that easy.

I thought this was silly at first too. I thought, 'Why do I have to make friends with a part of myself?' Take that leap of faith and you're going to find a huge difference in your life.

And this is how to do it: Give yourself a little pep talk. Ask for what you need help with. 'Dear Gentle Giant. . . I'd love to double our income. I think we're absolutely worth it.' Or maybe, 'Hi. I know we've had some rocky relationships and there has been a bad pattern created and now, I'd like to end that and have a great connection. What do you think? Let's do it together.'

You could also ask for help with things you're learning, as in, 'Gentle giant, I would absolutely love to have my persuasion skills increase exponentially. You are really the one I can count on for help.'

Everything that you are, everything that you do, and everything that you have began with your intention to have it in one way or another is controlled by your other-than-conscious mind. All you have to do is tap into your persuasive power and your persuasion skills will naturally develop.

How Your Mind Can Do More With Minimal To No Self Motivation

What you do bridges the gap between your network marketing business goals and your results. Your drive determines the actions you take.

For certain people, their motive is determined by the reason they started a business. The stronger the WHY, the easier it is to take the necessary action for your home business success. Your WHY gives you that extra edge, so you never give up on your business and you always execute the related tasks at an optimal level.

For a few people, this is straightforwardly possible because they are skilled at formulating very strong motivational reasons for being in business. These individuals easily let this inspiration drive them, and they always perform their network marketing tasks at a peak level.

For other people though, maintaining that optimal performance when undertaking their network marketing business everyday duties proves to be quite a formidable task. One day, you could be psyched to do your very best and the next day, you're a totally different person; eager to put off the task till a later date.

So what do these individuals do to narrow the distance between their network marketing business goals and their outcomes?

Let's look at pro athletes for example. They generally have to suffer very long, gruelling seasons of training, hard work and substantially competitive fixtures in their respective disciplines.

They have to compete at a peak level, whether it's working out, or game time, and they have to repeat this feat for the entire length of the season and even beyond. Anything below this and they shrink their perceived value to their team and to other prospective teams.

Are these pro athletes always driven ALL the time? Surely they are human, and they must have some days when they just don't feel like it.

Let's face it, no matter how much you love doing something, there are some aspects of it you would rather not do at all.

With sports, you sometimes have to spend time in the gym, the pool, on the track or in the weight room. Then there's time for Public Relations work, and taking care of the business side of things. Don't forget that there are still the competitive sporting events themselves, where you have to be in ‘The Zone'.

I don't know about you, but to do this consistently takes a lot more than mere motivation.

After all, motivation is based on your confidence in your capability to do something. If you are deficient in that confidence, you will not have the needed motivation.

When it comes to your mlm business, you have to deal with prospects, promotion and marketing (which include a large number of strategies), telephone sales and recruiting, copywriting, and so many other aspects of your home based business.

Keeping on top of the tasks required of you in your business, consistently requires that you be in total control of your mind and you be ready to do anything and everything, no matter how big or small the task, or how much you feel like doing it or not.

That being said, how do you perform your home based business tasks at your peak, always?

When pro athletes speak of being in ‘The Zone', they are competing at their highest level. At this level, all parts of them are in total cooperation, working towards a common goal. By this statement, I am saying a person is composed of more than just his/her consciously controlled mind and muscles.

When you acknowledge that you are composed of more than just your conscious mind, but also have spiritual, mental, psychological and subconscious aspects to you, that's when you can see that you are a sum total of more than just your conscious mind, with all parts working in cooperation, towards a common goal.

In such a case, you would not need to do some chanting or auto-suggestion exercises and put on a ‘game face', to keep you motivated to accomplish the task at hand. You just have to gain the cooperation of all parts of you, including your subconscious mind.

When you can visualize yourself as a being composed of many parts, you will see that it's not necessary to keep you driven so you perform your network marketing business tasks at a peak level. You just need the cooperation of all parts of you.

Clinical psychologists put it clearly, when they describe hypnosis as a language you use to communicate with, and gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind.

If you've ever looked into clinical psychology, then you know that it's possible to eliminate acrophobia (fear of heights) from a person who has suffered this ailment for a very long time. This cure is never based on getting someone hyped, psyched or motivated. It is based on gaining the cooperation of the person's subconscious mind.

When you can obtain the cooperation of your subconscious mind, you can achieve anything and getting into ‘The Zone' that athletes speak about (with reference in this case, to your home based business) becomes second nature.

You no longer have to rely on auto suggestion, or chanting to yourself and telling yourself you can do it each and every day. You just have to rely on your subconscious mind; working in cooperation with you, toward a common goal.

Have you ever noticed how many big-name pro athletes use hypnosis as part of their regiment? That should give you something to think about.

However you get to communicate with your subconscious mind, gaining this cooperation is pertinent to your mlm business success and undertaking your home business duties at an optimal level.

The next time you're considering performing a chore for your network marketing business, and wondering where you're going to come up with the essential inspiration to start, remember that motivation is not a pre-requisite to get going; gain the cooperation of your subconscious mind, and you can be in ‘The Zone'.

Keep in Mind That in Starting an Internet Marketing Company,

Internet marketing consistently opens its doors of opportunities for those individuals who are looking for two things: freedom and moderate to huge monthly income. Although it is good to be an ordinary yet well-compensated employee, complete with benefits entitled to them. For more details go to www.internet-marketing-word.com However, the change happening in the market is consistent; the increase on their monthly wages is not sufficient to compensate the increase in the prices of basic and primary commodities. Add to it the inconvenience they feel every time they are obliged to follow their superiors on the things they need to do and need not to do while working for the company.

The result: moderate to poor compensation (due to consistent increase of basic commodities against inconsistent increase of monthly wages) and lack of freedom of enjoying their work, which lead to inefficiency, and worst, getting laid off from work...With Internet marketing, you are in-charge. There will be no managers or supervisors to tell you that you need to do this and do that. You have the discretion of choosing what time you want to work and what type of investment you prefer. In other words, you will not work anymore for the company. You will be the one to build your own company. And it will be called an Internet marketing company.

Pleasant to the ears, isn't it? However, just like other things existing in this world, you should familiarize yourself with the do's and don'ts when starting an Internet marketing company. you must heavily consider the "wants and needs" of your clients.

With a new Internet marketing company, you should make your point clear and concise. However, mixing the message that you want to express will just create an impression to the Internet public that you are inexperienced in handling the product or services you are offering for sale. You will just lose the opportunity of widening your clientele base.

Asking for extensive personal information of the subscriber- keep in mind that people will not give up their personal information easily without knowing what they are getting into. If you have some information that you want to share to the public, require minimum information such as the name of the subscriber and the email

Placing unrelated contents to the site- there is no point in placing plenty of keywords that have nothing to do in particular with your Internet marketing company. For more details go to www.tube-traffic.com Even if it’s a highly paid keyword, if it is not related to the content of your site, it is useless and will not help but instead ruin the professionalism of your company. Select the keywords that go with the content of your site and have meaning to the content.
