Mindfulness – A key to successful behavioral modification


Many of us want to break patterns. Those that have flattened the trajectory of our results for some time, and, despite magnitude and quality of effort, end up producing similar outcomes. The major problem is that people are aware of their conscious beliefs and behaviors, but not of subconscious beliefs and behaviors.

Most people don’t even acknowledge that their subconscious mind is at play, when the fact is that the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind and that we operate 95 to 99 percent of our lives from subconscious programs.

Studies have proven that our subconscious beliefs are working either for or against us, but the truth is that we are not controlling our life, because our subconscious mind supersedes all conscious control. This is part of the reason why I’m such a big believer in methods that alter subconscious beliefs.

Researchers do not yet know how or when, exactly, unconscious drives may suddenly become conscious; or under which circumstances people are able to override hidden urges by force of will. Millions have quit smoking, for instance, and uncounted numbers have resisted darker urges to misbehave that they don’t even fully understand.

Yet the new research on priming makes it clear that we are not alone in our own consciousness. We have company, an invisible partner who has strong reactions about the world that don’t always agree with our own, but whose instincts, these studies clearly show, are at least as likely to be helpful, and attentive to others, as they are to be disruptive. Being mindful of such subconscious programs is the only way to at least make a good effort and increase the degree of success with our own behaviors, and to be successful, one needs to develop mindfulness over a period of time.
