What limits achievement?
The human mind has been likened to a computer but this is far below the truth. The last couple of decades has seen the discovery and exploration of the mysterious sub-atomic world of quantum physics. For years now science, and particularly technology, has harnessed a few applications for these utterly mind-bending laws that achieve ‘impossible’ outcomes. The laws of quantum theory are also gaining momentum in application to biological and medical problems.
But there are still useful parallels between a computer and the way our minds operate. Similar to a computer, your subconscious mind is like your central processing unit (CPU). The main job for you in achieving any goal is to reprogram his unit; so that what you think, feel and believe becomes the mental equivalent of exactly what you want to experience and enjoy.
Natural laws can be divided into 2 categories: physical (e.g. gravity) and mental.
Laws of physics, whether Newtonian or Quantum, govern action within the universe. Mental laws, though their physical effects cannot be seen as easily as physical laws, also work 100% of the time. When your life is going well, it means your thoughts and activities are aligned and in harmony with these invisible mental laws. Whenever you are having problems of any kind it is almost invariably because you are violating one or more of these laws, whether you know about them or not.
Seven mental laws have been identified, that we can harness for maximum achievement. The next 5 editions we will explore the 7 mental laws and how you can put them to work. Emails will be bi-weekly for this topic, to maintain flow, then go back to fortnightly.
The 7 Mental Laws
- Law of Control – You control the way you think; no person can make you feel anything.
- Law of Cause and Effect – Everything happens for a reason.
- Law of Belief – What you believe becomes reality.
- Law of Expectation – Whatever you expect becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
- Law of Attraction – You invariably attract into your life people and situations in harmony with your dominant thoughts.
- Law of Correspondence – Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.
- Law of Mental Equivalency – Thoughts objectify themselves.
You become what you think about.
It is said we think 60,000 thoughts a day. It is also well known that our thoughts, values and beliefs, determine our behavior.
What is the focus of your thoughts? Do they keep returning to what you don’t want to happen or how you want to be?
There is also a powerful punch added to the impact of thoughts when they are loaded with emotion or feelings. Most people think, “That’s just the way it is”, but in fact we have control over our thoughts. Even when circumstances are out of our control.
This topic comes from notes I have taken from Brian Tracey’s 1993 book, “Maximum Achievement”, where he described “7 mental laws” that govern our minds and therefore actions. But we can choose our content consciously and intentionally, and therefore carve out a new preferred destiny.
