Every human being is having some inherent talent hidden within self. But many of us could neither identify it nor understand it. Those, who have discovered that skill, also, fail to use that at the right moment or at the right opportunity. Only a very few people on the earth get success in any work at any time. We lament that God is with them and not with us. We should not blame God or jealous of others, for our mistake. We should look into ourselves and try to understand the potential power of our subconscious mind.

Self – SWOT Analysis:

All the members of a family may consider a particular member of the same family, a boy or a girl as unfit for doing anything. This is not correct . Within every one of us there is some talent hiding. Every one of us should undertake a Self Analysis- We should analyze our Strengths- Weaknesses – Opportunities and Threats. Take a piece of paper and list all your strengths. Similarly list out all your Weaknesses. Ordinary people,  like us, find the Strength list small and lengthy list of weaknesses. Achievers will have it vice versa. Now think over your weaknesses. You have to convert your weaknesses into Strengths .Your strengths have to be fortified further. This will help you find Success in any situation by converting your failures into success.

Many of us wait for the Opportunity to come and knock at our doors. We think that we will utilise the opportunity at that time. Don’t wait for the opportunity to come and knock at your doors. Your waiting may become meaningless. Because, opportunity may never come or you may become too old to open the door .So try to create opportunities. Success will fall on your lap.

Next one is Threat. We are always under some threat. A businessman finds the threat from his competitor. When he fails to utilise an opportunity, that will be grabbed by his competitor. So prepare a list of all your SWOT and convert the weaknesses into strengths and Threats into Opportunities.

Conscious and Subconscious Mind :

God has given us Two Minds- Conscious and Subconscious. Conscious mind is external and rational. It can distinguish between good and bad things. It can differentiate deeds which will be praised and which will be condemned. But subconscious mind is not like that. It will be always awake whereas the conscious mind sleeps with the body and awakes with it. Your wife may follow 70 to 75 percentage of your advice and 25 to 30 percent she will take her own decision. Your children may follow your words to some more extent. But the subconscious mind obeys you totally ( 100 percent) .Saints of olden days have said “Think  good-Do Good and be assured that good things will follow & will  happen to you ”

Subconscious Mind is a fertile land:

Let us compare our subconscious mind with a fertile land. If you sow food grains in the land you will get them back manifold. If you sow some poisonous seeds that also you will get back manifold. Even if you don’t sow anything, some thorny bushes may come up in the barren land. Yes!. If you sow good thoughts in the subconscious mind it will get multiplied there and you will get a thick harvest. Good thoughts will bring you success in series.

Sky is the limit- Magic of Thinking Big !

“Life is based on your thoughts”, “As you think so will you live” are some of the adages that have shaped the lives of many successful people. They had created a mind picture of what they want to be. They had rehearsed the situation with themselves in their desired position many times. We should not underestimate anybody. For example, if a student wants to score good marks in the examination he/she should think that he/she should get 495/500 or 1190/1200 and plan their studies , work hard and get their desired objective fulfilled . If you want to become rich, you should aim to become a multi millionaire. We should have very high thoughts and goals and work towards achieving them. Our targets should not be mean. We may fall slightly short of our target. Even then, it will be a success story. 

Suggestion and Auto-suggestion :

                     Suggestion is the act of imposing our desire, our dreams and our thoughts on others. It is an act of putting something into one’s mind. A mother or father tells his son / daughter to become a successful doctor / engineer etc. On receiving such suggestions from his/her parents , the boy/girl , thinks and creates an action plan to become a doctor /engineer by giving suggestion to himself/herself .This is called as auto suggestion.

                      Now we will see how to give auto suggestion to oneself. A child or adult of any age can practice this concept and achieve success in his / her life from now onwards. This is very simple & needs no money but a few minutes of time only.

  1. First one should identify his/her number one priority in life. Example:  to buy a new big independent house with all facilities in a good locality in your Town.
  2. To buy a deluxe AC car .
  3. To become a famous Doctor/Engineer/IAS officer in life.

As given above , identify a specific goal and before going to bed tonight, sit in a relaxed mood in your bed comfortably and switch off the light . Then observe your breath in & breath out for 30 seconds. If you do this your mind will become relaxed and will be able to accept any auto suggestion given to it by you.Then give auto suggestion to your sub conscious mind 20 to 25 times with full faith, in a focused manner and with a little loud voice so that you yourself will be able to hear that suggestion given to your sub conscious mind.

  1. I can, I can and I can achieve anything and everything in my life.
  2. I will succeed and will achieve this goal.
  3. I will be able to get 100/100 in all subjects in all the examinations.
  4. I will get 1190 / 1200 or 495 / 500 in the final examinations and  will come out as State First Student.

This has to be given as auto suggestion with full faith and  concentration . It will take less than 3 minutes to do this. In order to achieve success in your life one can spend 5 minutes both in the morning and also  in the night daily. Initially one may feel shy to say this loudly & even feel ashamed of doing this . But over a period of time this will become an easy & routine activity in our day to day life.  One has to start doing this before going to bed , since your sub conscious mind will not sleep , but will reverberate  with the auto suggestion given by you before going to bed. Similarly if you do this immediately after getting up from bed, the same will reverberate through out the day. This will increase the chances of getting yourself the desired result at the earliest.
