"No matter how much you train your subconscious mind, it's not enough. You need to work your a*s off, this only ensures success."
As 'The Secret' book by Rhonda Byrne got released, people were overwhelmingly spending time training their minds, to apply the principles of 'The Law of Attraction.'
Let me let tell you one of the biggest disadvantages of training your mind; it isn't a replacement to hard work.
Let me tell you another fact; no matter how much you try to train your mind, if you don't believe in yourself & have an objective point of view towards life, you would never achieve anything.
No matter how much you train your mind, if the affirmations are blocked by old inhibitions, it would never get manifested. It has to be removed first.
It doesn't mean you shouldn't work on your subconscious mind or try to modify your belief systems, but just make sure you do it in a effective way & to work hard, measure success & become successful.
As the saying goes;
"Ideation without execution is delusion."
You might have observed, sometimes what you seek manifests very easily, at the same time it takes years together to accomplish that big thing. Why's all like this??
'Bigger your goals, bigger would be the fear & chancs of failure, & bigger should be your efforts. It doesn't come easy you need to persist & make big sacrifices for it.'
Sometimes how much ever you put in effort it doesn't fetch you results. No matter how much you persevere, it doesn't happen. Why?? Ain't your efforts got any value?? No it has its value.
But there are uncontrollable factors beyond your reach, that could & will influence your results.
As per the stoics & Achraya Madhwa's philosophy,
Life consists of 2 factors;
1. Controllable 2. Uncontrollable
You need to control what's controllable & live with the rest.
"Give us the lord the strength to control what's controllable, live with what's uncontrollable. And the wisdom to recognise the difference. Give us the Lord our daily bread...." - Church Prayer.
Basically there are 2 realities:
Subjective reality and objective reality.
Subjective reality is the reality which we have control, objective reality we don't have any control at all. We can say that subjective reality represent controllable factors. Subjective reality include your perception, focus, thinking, beliefs & all that you have control.
Objective reality basically represents uncontrollable factors & the actual reality of life. Some say that there's no such thing called 'Reality'. No, there is. But there are 2 realities.
Before constructing any building, the architect has a blueprint. A blueprint gives you an idea about how that structure would look like after the construction. This is subjective reality & the actual building is the objective reality.
So if there's no such thing called reality, then can we live in the blueprint. Never!
Universe isn't illusiory, but it's dynamic. It's not a static entity. It keeps changing form in every second through time.
Subjective reality profoundly influences the objective reality but in a gradual manner. By changing our disposition we can change our life that's objective reality. In the sense, we will live that dream life or achieve that goals.
So you training your subconscious mind is an attempt to change your subjective reality. But it's not enough. You need to take action by working hard as well as smart to get better marks or as such thing. That's how you can change your subjective reality which changes your objective reality gradually.(Getting better marks)
We should remember no matter how much we think or plan, it's not a replacement for hard work. You need to grind hard to get better marks or achieve anything.
Training subconscious is a supplementary activity and it's not the main activity to achieve goals. It should motivate you to try hard and ultimately it will fetch what you want. Normally, it will support you to take action, if you train it correctly. We need to train it on the execution part rather than the result part. Results are uncontrollable factors.
"We always think on getting things, seldom we focus on doing things. We need to."
“There's no replacement to hard work. There are no short cuts to success.”
"Every successful person has the tendency to hide the darker parts of life. Moments of disillusionment, failures, frustrations & many more."
There are 7 things you can control in your life, no matter how good or bad situation you are in:
1. Your perspective towards life.
2. Your perceptions.
3. Your beliefs.
4. Your efforts.
5. Your compassion.
6. Your decisions.
